  1. "It is technically against the rules to have nudity, sex-beds or sex balls in a General region. Whether those rules are inforced or not depends on whether one is reported or not." A correct statement, admittedly: A Region may be designated General if it does not advertise or make available content or activity that's sexually explicit, violent or depicts nudity. Likewise, sexually-oriented objects such as "sex beds" or poseballs may not be located or sold in General regions... as per http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Maturity "My question is what's going to happen when someone gets reported now for doing things they thought were ok before?" Just because someone didn't report it as being against policy, or someone didn't think it was policy... doesn't mean it is allowed or is okay. It isn't nor ever has been. If LL decides to better enforce an existing policy, the people who opt to rezz sex poseballs in a General region will have to rethink the wisdom of that and use the exact same common sense reasoning the rest of us do.
  2. "Dont worry i dont let it get to me, just have to be the better person and leave the place i do love the most, sad that it comes to that and that these people enjoy doing it so much" If it is Linden land there isn't much you can do past filing ARs. If it is privately owned land you can contact the owner, send them an IM or nc telling them how grateful you are that the land they provided exists but how it is being ruined. Chances are they won't like anyone ruining it and will get someone to watch over the land with rights to eject. Either way, SL is a big place with much beauty... you'll find a good spot : )
  3. "How is this possible?, im no computer savey, but i have seen with my own eyes 1 griefer in particular keep coming back, griefing, crashing the info hub sim as he pleases." It's possible. I've even seen people post how they've been unfairly banned and someone will be stupid enough to suggest work-arounds to the ban. That's being a little too helpful i think. Look at the bright side, LL is acting upon this person as they do get banned and the answer is as simple as don't let idiots annoy you, just keep enjoying SL and reporting the griefer. Sooner or later the person will get tired of being banned and move on, or maybe they'll even get an actual life lol.
  4. "Thanks to those who were helpful. Looks like Phoenix is the way to go for an Emerald user." An fyi if you try Pheonix, like Emerald of old Pheonix have a support group inworld should you encounter problems of have questions. As for the asking an oft-asked question... personally I've answered dozens of questions repeatedly, I've never been bothered by it including this one. Besides the personal touch is much better than anything Google can offer so please, continue (and save the bites for someone who might appreciate them more lol)
  5. "But right now I will just settle for a simple way to return to my shopping?" Shop inworld, I only have to login once. Past that barring any workaround for the new and improved Marketplace, that's all I got.
  6. Personally even in it's prime I felt Emerald was overrated. Yes it had enhanced look-at. Which in turn got everyone curious or paranoid over who was *gasp* camming them. Colour me an egomaniac but I couldn't careless who is camming me, what a dull world this would be if nobody was interested. Yes Emerald had auto-reply and the ability to custom design auto-messages tailor made for friends and individuals... as if the standard customizable busy reply isn't enough. I used to laugh at that, a viewers strong suit is a feature that lets you custom design a 'i don't want to talk to you' auto-response message specific to each friend you have. Nice touch. Emerald had the ability to tell you who opened an IM window and was typing you a message... this for the busy crowd who can't wait the 5seconds it takes for the other person to type the message and hit send. With it i could dismiss login and tp'ing screens. Wow. I could double-click teleport... that messed me up more times than I can count. With Emerald, a third party viewer I lose LL Support as I'm using a third party viewer. I used to wonder how many premium people there were inworld, totally oblivious to the fact they're paying the $10/mo to LL for Support they have screwed themselves out of receiving. Let's see, Emerald had encripted chat so eavedroppers (that in itself isn't allowed inworld unless I authorize it thru wearing a collar for example) can't listen in on my chats... and thank god for that too or that whole mid-east peace talks thing would've been compomised. Maybe i'm just jaded? Never was a big Emerald fan.
  7. "Can I go back and forth from each viewer easily?" If you want to remove a viewer you can do so through your computers add and remove... or the viewers uninstaller... installing one viewer will not remove or effect another in any way and yes you can alternate between viewers without a problem. The only problem will be in logging chats, they'll be stored in different places depending on your viewer but you can change that in preferences. (i have viewer2, viewer 1.23, pheonix and imprudence on my computer... all at the same time, all work fine)
  8. "I would have used SL but they won't except gift cards for payment, I did this same thing a few months ago using a visa gift card, and even registered SL don't want to except them." If LL don't want to accept third-party people selling their LL lindens; ot don't want other people profiting from what is theirs, or don't want to accept giftcards as a payment method... that is their right. PS - Visa giftcards are unsupported by LL and will not work (that was posted to the SL Blogs a few months ago)... Mastercard Vanillacards (prepaid giftcards also) are not supported by LL either but do work. Barring all that, they're always Paypal.
  9. "I don't understand how I am responsible for them selling false lindens. I just searched buy lindens on-line and went there and bought them" Pressuming they are false lindens, by dealing with them you are bringing 'false lindens' into secondlife. If they are false lindens putting your account on hold is the only way LL has to stop you from doing it.

  11. hello Charolotte you could try contacting that radio station asking if they have an internet streaming url... many stations do. If you get that info all you need to is put the url they give into your land media tab.
  12. I'd call Billing and tell them what the problem is asking they check into it... issues that are account/payment related are one of the few things you can contact LL directly about with just a phonecall : ) Here's the number: If you have a non-technical issue with your account you can also call our Billing team at: Toll-Free (US/Canada) 800.294.1067 Long Distance 703.286.6277 Our Billing team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

  13. "The last week when i've logged on my avi is just a white little ball of light..." When inworld click your Advanced tab... click Debug Settings... click the arrow, browse the list looking for Render Unloaded Avatar... set it to True.
  14. The HUD should come with instructions, I'd suggest how to load it using the instructions mine can with but if the methods are not similar we could end up messing up your HUD. As for a chim I can send you one if you'd like, just rezz it on the ground, rightclick and select edit, select the 'contents' tab and drag the dances from your inventory placing them in the edit's contents box... very easy. As for search it is on the top of this page, extreme righthand corner - beside where you login.
  15. There's a bit more to it that just clearing cache as the following thread suggests; and if this works - thank George : ) http://blogs.secondlife.com/message/386253#386253
  16. "When I log on, my avatar has been revereted to noob form." Seeing what "reverted to noob" looks like would be interesting. Try this... When inworld hit your Advanced tab (Ctrl Alt D to make it show), look for Debug Settings, click the arrow on the list and find Render Unloaded Avatar, set it to True Fingers crossed...
  17. what is the exact error message you are receiving ?
  18. Tickets can take a week or two, Support is pretty backlogged at the moment. As this is a payment related matter however you are in luck; this is one of the very few things you can contact LL about directly with just a phone call. If you have a non-technical issue with your account you can also call our Billing team at: Toll-Free (US/Canada) 800.294.1067 Long Distance 703.286.6277 Our Billing team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

  19. hiya Rick : ) Here's the quickie insta-fix: Click on the Advanced Menu at the top of the screen. If it is not next to the Help menu, press ctrl+alt+D to make it show Select Debug settings.....a small window will open. select "RenderUnloadedAvatar" from the drop down box and then set it to "True" Here's the detailed FAQ if you're interested: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Why_do_I_look_like_a_particle_cloud%3F_%28Formerly_known_as:_I%27ve_suddenly_and_unexpectedly_turned_into_an_ugly_woman.%29
  20. "She received an email today to say that she has 30 days to pay. With the account banned, she cant log in to pay it. What method of payment is available for payment and re-activation? A support ticket has been logged." Once an account is frozen, the resident has basically run out of options. They cannot login to pay it in lindens, they cannot get a friend's help, the only thing they can do is pay it through the website. Get the person to log into the sl website, go to their dashboard, keep the payment method they have or change it to one that works... and pay the 9.95 Once that is done the resident can opt to keep being premium, or downgrade to basic before payment is due again to avoid this from happening again. A support ticket won't help or change anything... phoning Billing will only result in you being told the above.
  21. The info on Alt accounts is here: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Alt_Account_FAQ As far as i am aware the term 'household' is not defined anywhere, I know a few Lindens and asked being curious myself (i had a few guesses as to what it meant but I don't want to give answers that effect other people and their accounts based on guesses or my own personal opinion). What I'd suggest if you seek verification is call Billing... they are the people who deal with such things: If you have a non-technical issue with your account you can also call our Billing team at: Toll-Free (US/Canada) 800.294.1067 Long Distance 703.286.6277 Our Billing team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

  22. "But does the limit of five free accounts per family or per IP-number still apply?" It is a limit of five accounts per household... not 'five per family', the LL description is five per email address or IP address, or combination of both adding up to five.
  23. Hello Debra. Actually the thread you are replying to is relating a problem that is entirely different from yours. The reason you can't login is because the servers are having issues atm : ) it'll be fixed doon http://status.secondlifegrid.net/ Technical Difficulties: Logins are disabled. The issue that we are currently experiencing has been identified. However, we do not have an expected ETA. As soon as we have further information we will update this blog. We are aware that there are various technical issues taking place currently inworld and on the website. We are investigating this situation and working towards a quick resolution. Some of the symptoms involved are difficulty to teleport, transactions failing and the inability to login. Please refrain from making inworld transactions, inventory transfers or rezzing items inworld. Please check this blog for further updates.
  24. hello Shakira : ) part of the reason people are not answering is you are posting to threads that are months old; your problem tends to get buried when you do that. Starting a new thread, listing the exact error message will likely get more replies. as far as the ticket goes, support is behind in dealing with tickets atm but you're reply from them will happen in time.
  25. As a catagory, I'd doubt it... Emerald has their own Support and being third-party LL would likely want to distance themselves from from it on a LL forum in a specific nature , instead happy to keep Emerald issues posted generally. The fact it's a good idea not withstanding lol, I can't even count how many Emerald questions I've answered on SLA (some right, some wrong as you're aware LOL) If LL were going to do that route they'd create specific sections for viewer2 and Snowglobe as a priority before they followed the third party path being by guess. Viewer2 sure could use one.
