  1. Deploy Plans for the week of 2017-08-21

    The comment appeared to have a personal edge to it, given it had no other bearing on the discussion. And we don't "have" to do anything. Those of us who report on meetings do so precisely because - even when transcripts are / were made available - not everyone is given to reading them. Ergo, they help spread the word as much as anything else.

    Which is why there are weekly reports on the meetings from those of us who attend. It's easy enough to find them. Again, the information is available. As to "retired old lady" - I assume you're referring to your personal status. I'm years away from retiring, so hope you're enjoying yours ;-).
  3. Deploy Plans for the week of 2017-08-21

    By "secret", I assume you mean the ones openly advertised in the wiki, and available to anyone to attend, and at which a whole range of topics are discussed, notably those raised by residents attending them. Including questions concerning outages, issues and other events. As the say goes, "seek and ye shall find". Or don't. The choice is yours.

    You mean they don't provide explanations like this one: April has, whenever she's been able to, provided information on major outages like this, and through the public channel of the official blogs.

    "Second Life Server (no roll): "https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Release_Notes/Second_Life_Server/17#17.07.11.327548" Don't you mean 17#07.27.327933? That was the last SLS deployment.
  6. SL 360 Photos

    Those interested can find reviews of the major 360 pancams available in Second Life (of which I'm aware, at least!) here: Illiastra Panoramic Camera mentioned in the OP Camera Panoramic 360 mentioned in Whirly's reply VR Creations 360 Photosphere Linden Lab 360 Snapshot viewer Note the last review was written for the initial release of the Lab's 360-degree snapshot viewer; some functionality has since changed, and the viewer itself is in need of update (which it coming soonTM).
  7. FIRST

    Careful, or I might send you another Tome Of Terrible Questions!
  8. FIRST

    Do administrators count when it comes to being first? . I think Marianne is really first! Second is the new new first!
  9. Question about subscribing to voice morphing

    All you need to know should be in the Knowledge Base - try this link: https://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Using-voice-chat/ta-p/700169#Section_.8
  10. Check out the Place Pages Beta!

    Are you actually logged-in the the Places pages? From my tests, the page you describe comes up for those not actually logged-in to the SL web properties. Check the top right-hand corner and see if your name or LOGIN is displayed. If the latter, click it to log-in, and things should display OK.
  11. SL Viewer for XP computers

    You might try the Obsolete Platforms Viewer from Linden Lab: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Release_Notes/Second_Life_Release/3.7.28.300847 As the release notes state, this is specifically for users on XP - but keep in mind that given its age, it has none of the more recent features common to maintained viewers, and thus your experience with it is liable to be less than optimal in many cases. Also, as Qie suggests, if you have a suitable Android device, Lumiya might be a good alternative (check the Third Party Viewer list for details). This is an extraordinarily powerful client, given it is Android (check here for more), although it is without some capabilities you might need. If you can install a suitable Android emulator (assuming there is one for XP), you might be able to run Lumiya on your PC through that.
  12. SS Galaxy is back

    The Galaxy actually returned and opened in August 2015 . Sadly, it's not "complete" https://modemworld.me/2015/08/29/ss-galaxy-lowers-her-gangways-to-visitors-once-more/ Nor is it really used as had been indicated. There has only (to my knowledge) been one event there since the return. https://modemworld.me/2015/09/04/a-cruise-ship-a-gathering-and-a-mole-with-a-wand-in-second-life/
  13. The Lag is intense in world

    It's not an SL-specific issue. It is a Window 10 / OpenGL issue, which appears to be primarily related to Win 10 Cumulative update KB3176938 released at the end of August 2016. see: https://modemworld.me/2016/09/06/windows-10-opengl-issue-affecting-some-second-life-users The Lab have been in contact with Microsoft over the issue, as have many other affected by the same issue (people are experiencing the same problem on a number of games). There is an unconfirmed report that a fix is due to be forthcoming from Microsoft "soon". However, if you are on Win 10 and experiencing problems, you might also was to try these suggestions from the Firestorm team: http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/win10 As a Windows 7 user, I cannot vouch for any of the fixes suggested, as I've never had cause to use them.

  15. Avatar complexity-- how can I get others to see me correctly

    As others have said, how others see you is not something you can directly control. Even with well-made and optimised attachments, there is no guarantee you're not a Jelly Doll to someone who has opted to set their Max Complexity especially low. However, in the context of your role-play enironment, you could ask those around you who are seeing you as a "Jelly Doll" to right-click on your avatar and select "render fully". This will render your avatar as you wish them to see you, but will not alter their existing Max Complexity setting, and so will not impact how they see others wherever else they go. In the official viewer (and TPVs using the Avatar Complexity code unaltered from the Lab), this option will only render you fully during the other user's log-in session. The next time they log-in and see you, you'll again be Jelly Dolled, and they'll need to select "Render Fully" with you once more. In Firestorm, using this option will always render your avatar fully in the other person's view, until such time as they select "Render Normally" via the avatar context menu / pie menu when right-clicking on you (or if they right-click on you and select "Do not Render", in which case, you become a plain grey shape in their view). Hope this helps.
