  1. If they (supposed friends) open the viewer all they have to do is look at the top bar area of any SL viewer screen to see your username it's where the the viewer name and version number is. ETA: I just noticed on V2 and the new LL beta viewer that the username is not shown in that position so it may not be shown on other viewers but I'm pretty sure it shows there on Firestorm & Phoenix.
  2. As Carole pointed out earlier, I'm not sure where the TOS stands when you link to a blog article from a SL thread that directly slurs another resident...? If I linked to a very adult site from this post I'm pretty sure it would be RIC'd damn quick by someone
  3. I can't knock the deal, but for me I'd rather pay the $1000 purchase price and have the ongoing tier reduced by a significant margin, that's what would make it a long term viability for me. In an ideal world of course I'd rather pay no setup fee or a nominal one if any and then have a much reduced tier. :smileywink: I also wonder what the people are feeling who put an order in yesterday or earlier this week for a sim? I remember when I bought my last island sim being informed two days later that as a European it was going to cost me 17.5% more in VAT for the purchase price and tier, I was

I remember when I bought my last island sim being informed two days later that as a European it was going to cost me 17.5% more in VAT for the purchase price and tier, I was not best pleased. To be fair LL offered me the chance to pull out without any fee, I hope they are going to be just as generous t
  5. Suella Ember wrote Aye - it doesn't half confuse you deciding which one to stare at though! (P.S. Check you messages on your profile thingie whatchmacallit!) (P.P.S. Don't you hate it when people have private conversations on open forums! :smileyvery-happy: ) Aye, but at least I can check out your shoes at the same time! P.S. Have checked messages on the profile thingie watchmacallit P.P.S Yes we do!

  7. Pamela Galli has written in another thread regarding it. See below for her quote "I think they have lifted the blacklist on those items now: Alexa says file a rollback request or contact support for broken inventory." ETA: Ceka was obviously on her iron horse and beat me here with the info.
  8. Haven't been online to garner any more info Dilbert. Last I heard was that it was some bot they use for group admin or such that decided to go postal on them. So I don't know whether it was code in the bot that when awry or LL changed something in the code they use for groups that sent the bot crazy. All I heard when I originally posted was that it was an SL glitch. Broadly speaking I suppose that could be either the bot or SL itself depending on their interpretation.
  9. Even if that were the case I give them enough credit and intelligence that they would notify the group in advance to say that they were going to do it, the reason for doing it and then send out notices to that effect in increasing regularity leading up to the event. Why would anyone want to dump without notice 95+% of their group and nearly 100% of their active members?
  10. Without a doubt the membership is going to be pruned. As for the reasons behind what happened I'm not going to speculate all I can say is nobody got a kick notice (I certainly didn't nor a friend) that I've heard of from the people who were rejoining and at the moment all that I've heard regards the kick is that it was some bot went crazy. @Ceka: No kick notices as far as I'm aware, that's why people are trying to network the message around. :smileysad: P.S Thx :smileyhappy:
  11. Today for some as yet unknown reason 16,300 group members were ejected from the BB group by an SL glitch. If you were a member you might want to check that you still are and rejoin if you were kicked.

  13. Is there no resource implication to this at all? I'm no techie, far from it, but calculating the positions, movement, light effects plus a whole host of other dynamic attributes of a billion odd 3D particles every 0.05 secs at least, would, to a layman like me, seem an enormous resource hog. I would presume further that this would only be used firstly in boxed/downloaded first person games etc, whereby a lot of the data can be stored locally. Would this really be feasible in the near future for a dynamic MMO such as SL? Can servers at the present time stream out all that data to maybe 20

A brick texture might be named 004 tfg, red brick would be a better new name. What's it worth? I don't know. You would also get a copy of all the textures (full perms). Many types of objects can be sorted in SL. .. OMG my OCD meter has just gone off the scale! Can I do cross indexing too? Please!
  15. NEWSFLASH: "Labrador Inc" recalls products due to worries about front suspension failures. P.S. I'm obviously excluded from winning, but couldn't resist that one.
  16. Deleted, didn't read the OP's question thoroughly.
  17. Because I'm bored and feeling generous how about a caption competition? Wittiest (as judged by me) wins L$1000 RULES: Anyone can enter and can have as many entries as they wish.Please try and keep all your attempts on the one post.Competition closes midday Friday 21st Oct 2011 PDT/SLT.Anyone who merely finesses a previous entry will not be counted.NOTE: I'm from the UK and am fairly abreast of world matters, but if you make reference to some turkey farmer who's in the news in the back end of nowhere it's likely to go over my head and then into the bin. P.S. LL Community Guidelines still apply

  20. Skype, Messenger, email and phone. Pretty much everything that you wouldn't class as a social network, but works the same as or better without the attendant hassles.
  21. "Familiarity breeds contempt" so they say, well I'll probably make no friends at the lab, but my advice is to take a break. I've had two long breaks in my time on SL and I can't explain it, but after a long break each time I had an itch to return. Each return has coincided with a major innovation in SL, namely sculpts first time and mesh this time. This was good for me as building is my passion in SL so it gave me something new to learn and try each time. What you are feeling is only natural and you sound like the sort of person who needs fresh environmental, physical or intellectual stimu
