  1. I can see where an argument could be make and people being unsettled due to privacy issues etal... valid point. To be the devil's advocate though, you end up running into some griefer abuser nolife or end up in some dispute with a vendor, neighbor who put a wall partially on your property... you end up putting trhem in their place or ticking them off somehow - stranger things have happened, you rubbed someone the wrong way ot they're just looking to cause people trouble. You get an AR filed against you with some BS about things you didn't even say... the say they overheard you doing ageplay or uttering some harsh racist remark that you could get your butt banned for. Provided you trust the cops, and I do... the right info in the right hands can definately be of advantage. In the meantime if anyone wants to hear my emotes during sex, of how I think my rl boss is a goof, or that i look horrid in blond hair or how i think Tiger Woods is an idiot - granted an idiot who really scored... whatever; I'll buy the popcorn, hell i'll even post it here.
  2. /me applauds your success and Ansariel's smartness - wewtx2!
  3. Are you trying to buy land on the mainland, or privately... you might find it was easier buying privately from a real estate place. Thankfully I don't have this problem, I live in a cardboard box behind the club I manage. If you want me to hook you up with a real estate agent let me know or find one using search. You can also open the world map and find land for sale that way, look for yellow parcels, teleport there, rightclick the ground and select 'about land' to get all the info you need.
  4. Unistall Secondlife, then follow this path: my computer - c drive - documents and settings - your named folder - application data - you'll see a folder called 'secondlife' move that 'secondlife' folder to anywhere else on your computer ie 'my documents' restart your computer, reinstall secondlife, try logging again. (this 'secondlife' folder is where your user settings are, by moving it you're forcing the re-creation of your user settings from square one when you reinstall, everything will be back to default. Once your sl is fine go to 'my documents', recover your chat logs from the old secondlife folder then trash it. No this will not effect your inventory)
  5. While we wait for someone smarter to reply or in the meantime for me to login and remember how to turn it off permanaently... you don't have to open the map to get rid of it... just click on the red arrow and it'll disappear. EDIT: to disable it rightclick the mini-map as follows: ActionsThings you can do with the Mini-Map: Drag the Mini-Map to change its position. Drag the Mini-Map's edges to resize it. Double-click the Mini-Map to open the big World Map, which shows more details about where you are Hover over a green or yellow dot to view that Resident's name. You can right-click their dot to view their profile. Right-click the Mini-Map to open a menu: Zoom Close/Medium/Far - Changes the zoom level of the Mini-Map. You can also hover your cursor over the Mini-Map and move your scroll wheel. Stop Tracking - If a red locator beacon and arrow pointing to a destination is currently active, this makes them disappear. Video Tutorial This tutorial was made before the feature showing friends on the map as yellow dots was added.

  6. I'm sure they all could do it, but for their own various reasons (tracking, vendor/script preferences, etal) they prefer not to. Granted it does all add up, but 1L muliplied 500 times still totals about 2 real dollars, a substancial amount of 'free' stuff for the price of a coke. Some wouldn't spend a linden and valid point, but by the same token alot of people inworld realize as a general rule bought stuff is better that freebie gear so maybe paying that linden gets them past the 'ewww' factor lmao. Everyone's different.
  7. "1L is about $.004." omg no doubt... tough getting upset by this actually. Even in my earliest days without payment method or a means to get a sl salary it took me mere minutes to camp long enough to earn 5L; and if someone can't afford one linden there's still lots of total freebie places and stuff around.
  8. If anyone plans on giving me demo hair for christmas, please don't lmao.
  9. Here is the 'why'. I've had the same thing, couldn't resolve host name; I turned my modem off, disconnected the input wire for 10sec's, plugged it back on, turned the modem back on... and was able to login. Second Life gives me an error message that says "Verifying Protocol Version," or "Cannot resolve domain name," or "Cannot find server" This problem usually takes the form of: When I log into Second Life... ... it gets to Verifying Protocol Version and stops. ... it says it Cannot resolve domain name. ... it says it Cannot find server someservername.lindenlab.com. What's wrong? This error usually means that Second Life's network connection is completely blocked by your computer or your local network setup. In the vast majority of cases, this means that a firewall (such as your router), firewall software, or internet security software is blocking Second Life's network access. (Firewalls and internet security software frequently block most network uses that are not web browsers, instant messengers, etc.) If you're running a firewall or firewall/internet security software, you may have to reconfigure or disable it to use Second Life. If you're using wireless networking, you may need to use a wired connection. If you're on a business or university internet connection, you may need to contact your network administrator to verify that you can make non-web connections to the Internet. Specifically, you need to make both UDP and TCP connections inbound and outbound, on network ports 443 and 12020 to 13050 (inclusive). If your network cannot provide the proper connection, you may be unable to connect to Second Life.
  10. Hiya Cinnamon Death and Other "First Life" Worries This article addresses some frequently-asked questions about Second Life relating to death in real life and some similar concerns. Is there a way for me to bequeath my Second Life account and its assets to someone else if I die in real life? Yes. Please read this article, which provides the answer to this question in more detail. If I die in real life, will you let my Second Life friends know, perhaps by informing my Friends list? Maybe. Linden Lab can only act on instructions that are part of a legally-recognized document such as a valid will. You would have to specify in your will that you want this action performed, and we would need a copy of the will and whatever other verifying documents we deem necessary. I'm worried about my Second Life friend, who hasn't been inworld for a very long time, or has expressed suicidal ideation, or some other alarming behavior. Can you check on them for me? Can you give me their account information so that I can check on them? We're sorry, but no; that would violate the terms of our Privacy Policy. However, here are some links you or your friend might find useful: Befrienders maintains an extensive list of suicide-prevention hotlines organized by country. Befrienders is itself a worldwide volunteer-based organization that, in its own words, works to "provide help to those in need of emotional support, in order to reduce the number of people who die by suicide, and enable people to explore their feelings in an anonymous, confidential and non-judgmental environment."
  11. yupyup, best option though is to do so 'manually' though as the page won't allow her the changes. What happens if I experience problems when I try to verify my identity? The new age verification feature is in beta. Please be patient as we continue to improve the feature. We are committed to making sure the process is as smooth and user-friendly as possible; however, we understand that this represents a change for Residents. We have also tested the system extensively with our systems provider, Aristotle-Integrity, which has delivered this type of technology to other companies. If you continue to have problems verifying your identity, please go to the Second Life Support Portal and submit a ticket (select Special Questions - Basic account or Guest Login from the Ticket Type dropdown, select Account Issues from the next dropdown, and choose Manual Age Verification from the next). Please attach electronic (scanned) copies of the following materials: Government issued identification that has your date of birth clearly displayed. This identification should be one or more of the following: Birth Certificate Driver's License Passport A utility bill with your name and address clearly displayed. To attach a file to your ticket: Log into the Second Life Support Portal and click the My Support History tab. Click the Ticket # of the age verification ticket you submitted. Click the Comment button. Click the Attach a file link. Browse for the file on your computer and click Open. To attach another file, click the Attach another file link. Click the Submit button. The files you specified will be uploaded and attached to the ticket. Please expect manual verification to take 5-7 working days.
  12. If memory serves (tough enough to remember what i did 5 minutes ago nvm last year lol) last winter my neighbor did exactly that... just like you create grass she created sheets of ice over her beach extending out over the water - instant ice rink.
  13. Never mind the crazy answers like "Why would you want to unmute someone you muted" when that does not address the issue at all. Wish we could be perfect but alas and heavy sigh we're social and at times curious. Strange beast this Questions and Answers forum, it's not a one way street. It certainly could be a lot easier than the way it is set up currently. On mine which is a standard SL Viewer, I bring up my mute list, click a name or object, then select unmute... that qualifies as easy. If say a third party viewer isn't as easy I suppose thats the pitfall of using a third party viewer. Be it a SL or third party viewer look for a feedback button and suggest a better way.
  14. That sure would have an effect on a dancers emotes; they'd have to be pretty tame.
  15. This thread might help Re: What are the advantages of a Premium Acct?
  16. I just used a paper mache recipe.
  17. "Ponders... but.. I'm never bad... I'm a good girl" Where's the fun in that, or is it just a brilliant disguise lol. As for me i've been both a bad and a good girl, depending on the event.
  18. Just so you can recognise me, i'll be the grey av on the Incognito sim.
  19. How does one get banned, a loaded question if ever there was one. According to LL - easily... that said some people who should be according to others never are. Guess it depends on who you ask LOL. (and no Sally, its not as bad as all that - never take me seriously, i sure don't) The Community Standards sets out six behaviors, the 'Big Six', that will result in suspension or, with repeated violations, expulsion from the Second Life Community. All Second Life Community Standards apply to all areas of Second Life, the Second Life Forums, and the Second Life Website. Intolerance Combating intolerance is a cornerstone of Second Life's Community Standards. Actions that marginalize, belittle, or defame individuals or groups inhibit the satisfying exchange of ideas and diminish the Second Life community as a whole. The use of derogatory or demeaning language or images in reference to another Resident's race, ethnicity, gender, religion, or sexual orientation is never allowed in Second Life. Harassment Given the myriad capabilities of Second Life, harassment can take many forms. Communicating or behaving in a manner which is offensively coarse, intimidating or threatening, constitutes unwelcome sexual advances or requests for sexual favors, or is otherwise likely to cause annoyance or alarm is Harassment. Assault Most areas in Second Life are identified as Safe. Assault in Second Life means: shooting, pushing, or shoving another Resident in a Safe Area (see Global Standards below); creating or using scripted objects which singularly or persistently target another Resident in a manner which prevents their enjoyment of Second Life. Disclosure Residents are entitled to a reasonable level of privacy with regard to their Second Life experience. Sharing personal information about a fellow Resident --including gender, religion, age, marital status, race, sexual preference, and real-world location beyond what is provided by the Resident in the First Life page of their Resident profile is a violation of that Resident's privacy. Remotely monitoring conversations, posting conversation logs, or sharing conversation logs without consent are all prohibited in Second Life and on the Second Life Forums. Adult Regions, Groups, and Listings Second Life is an adult community, but "Adult" content, activity and communication are not permitted on the Second Life "mainland." Such material is permitted on private regions, or on the Adult Continent, Zindra. In either case, any Adult content, activity, or communication, that falls under our Adult Maturity Definition must be on regions designated as "Adult," and will be filtered from non-verified accounts. Other regions may be designated as either "Mature" or "PG." For more information on how to designate land, events, groups, and classified listings, please carefully read the "Maturity Definitions." Disturbing the Peace Every Resident has a right to live their Second Life. Disrupting scheduled events, repeated transmission of undesired advertising content, the use of repetitive sounds, following or self-spawning items, or other objects that intentionally slow server performance or inhibit another Resident's ability to enjoy Second Life are examples of Disturbing the Peace.
  20. Some people are grey cause they're not rezzed... i've turned being grey into a lifestyle choice i have no choice in.
  21. ... all it did for me was show my age.
  22. EDIT: cause Cinn is the faster typer -gives a blue ribbon-
  23. I stand corrected - but i'll squat cause i'm half-right. 'can't login from this location' is blocked... 'try again in x amount of minutes' is a failed login... 'try again on a certain date' is account on hold. The reason a person might get that 'can't login from this location' is for example if they have a dynamic IP address as was the case with someone who posted here a week-ish ago. They got that same message, as it happens they had a dynamic IP that just by fluke changed to an account that was banned from SL a year ago. Relogging recycles the IP, thus allowing you to successfully login. Why does Second Life say "You cannot log into Second Life from this location"? This error message generally indicates you have been blocked from the Second Life servers by Linden Lab. These blocks may be automatically placed as the result of: Documented cases of fraud Use of Second Life by a minor Exceptionally flagrant abuse activity Why does Second Life say "Your account is not accessible until (date/time)"? Does the error specifically state that you are already logging in (or out)? If so, this message simply means that Second Life is still attempting to log out your avatar. Close Second Life, wait fifteen minutes, then attempt to log in again. Do not repeatedly attempt to log in! If you keep trying to log in, the process will take longer. Does the error only state Login failed; Your account is not accessible until (date/time)? This error message generally indicates your Second Life account has been administratively blocked. Short-term blocks (less than an hour) may be the result of a kick for inappropriate behavior. Longer blocks are typically the result of abuse.
