  1. I'm no help, past steering you to the people who can... there is a forums section that deals exclusively with scripting and the people there are goooood. http://blogs.secondlife.com/community/forums/scripting Best of luck!
  2. Move the window from its default position - then it stays open. Isn't murphy's law a right pain! give yourself 4pts for correct answer lol
  3. "I and my girlfriend are the group owners but I am a Preemie and she is not. How does this affect us? Is she able to co-own the land by way of the goup and does she get the 512m free?" If it is private land as opposed to Linden land/mainland... the 'preemie' rules don't apply, she wouldn't be effected. You didn't specify if it was mainland or private land however.
  4. " Romantic dancing with nice music and beautiful settings sold me on SL in the first place." That's a sentiment I can relate to, I joined SL to be with my someone. (we're no longer together but it's still a very fond memory( This is also a classy tribute Tolya, very noble.
  5. what an absolutely PERFECT reply! that sounds very cool. thanks sooo much Paladin (i'm a fan of your posts also)
  6. Too true, and good reminder. The reason we're here more often than not is because of eachother.
  7. "Okay, If there was any way to prove to you I am a fourteen year old, I would hand it to you. Seriously. But you are going way too far." We're not the ones you have to prove anything to so ignore it; just someone merely... guessing. Don't feed the trolls, and don't take 'rules' advice from anyone who is willing to break them just to be a troll. Move on, and best of luck. *waves to Theia, hope you're well*
  8. My humble opinion... Between the Mentor program now gone a critique heard often is there are few places for the unknowing to turn to, and unless you have a premium account help from Support isn't there either, and even Premium people can be heard complaining of a lack of same. I caught mild flak here for being non-judgemental and for providing answers - but I make no apologies for that. I don't want SLA turning into a place where people are judged for merely - asking questions or seeking help. I'm not going to put myself in a midset where I'm judging the person or the merits of the question asked nor will I ever poke fun at those 'how did i get pregnant' threads or suggest some self-described 14yr old girl is really a 40yr old male pedo with a brilliant disguise. That is not what I want SLA turning into, and I don't always know everything so flaming other people for the same or for screwing up when I myself make 5 mistakes before breakfast seems inane. Surely people should be able to merely - ask a question; ideally without getting flak for it. I mean really, to degenerate into a flame war about typos as if we don't all make them *facepalms*
  9. ok, lets say you're right just for the sake of discussion and you revealed their true age and gender - it's between them and LL bud... don't mess yourself up claiming a good intention too. food for thought as you report them, and this coming from someone who isn't judging the OP or you for anything, as stated I merely reply to points raised... note what is highlighted in red - rules can be a double-edged sword. Be cautious in accusing, and avoid speculation that could be entirely incorrect. Again, just food for thought in the hopes cooler heads will prevail. 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.
  10. "Soon you will be gone from here old man" ...cause everyone knows the first thing a pedophile is gonna do is lie about their age to get on the main grid... then when banned from secondlife is go to the forums and make a big huge stink about it drawing all sorts of attention to themselves including LL.
  11. Attitude only gets attitude in return... a lesson to be learned. Lesson two - don't mess-up cause all that does is give people the right to say 'you messed up' and its you that allowed that to happen. Take the advice, fix the mess, and leave this thread behind cause now you're not a 14yr old girl who wanted to attend a hogwarts thing, according to some your an old guy who does bad things in real life. Such is life on the sl forum, get used to that too lol.
  12. ffs. I am not her parent, i'm not going to pretend to act like her parent. Whatever issues she has remains... between her and her parents. In ALL cases I will not judge anyone - between LL & God (in this case her parents) the sitting in judgement position has already been filled and I don't need the self-imposed drama of deciding anyone elses wrongs given the above. ps, the info i provided is public record a 2second internet search provided the OP has complete access to. Last comment - read this: "This sounds like some fishy lie. The OP is can no be a 14 yr old and def not a female. He sounds like some old dude who did some bad stuff in SL" - Complete and utter speculation - all of a sudden a thoughtless 14yr old girl is a aged pedo or w/e. Which is where judging without knowing gets us, and i refuse to take the bait.
  13. " thankyou. I will take a picture of my passport. This is a question I brought up earlier but no one answered. (:" it was, in a round-about fashion. A fax sends images and text, it doesn't send your whole passport.
  14. "I find it stunning HOW people are actually trying to help this 14 year old who messed up. Shame on all of you! " Maturity comes in many forms; adults are not immune to messing up either - often times with good intention; age is relevant only to LL, not myself in reply; speaking personally i'm not here on SLA to judge anyone but merely answer questions as posed, fact is I can tell the difference between utter frustration and attitude. No shame felt here, no belittling either. She messed up, big deal - show me someone that hasn't on the odd occasion.
  15. "Faxing isnt very common over here. I have no and I mean NO idea where to find a fax machine." this might help, public fax machines in the UK... http://www.sheffieldforum.co.uk/archive/index.php/t-26868.html http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=412790
  16. " It isn't that people in the UK can't access the teen grid, it's that people in th UK cant sign up to the teen grid. " not necessarily true, ie... https://blogs.secondlife.com/message/87064#87064
  17. It isn't a question about maturity Nuesha. Firstly in signing up as you did you broke the very first rule of the ToS; it doesn't matter what your intentions were... you took a shot and you lost. Granted you are remorseful for it unfortunately that doesn't matter after the fact. When all is said and done here, you're still going to have to send LL proof of your identity. Whether or not fax's are in wide use where you live isn't LL's issue, it remains your problem to solve.... that said I have no doubt you'll find one if you look hard enough. Best of luck. Just deal with what you gotta deal with - you got yourself into this mess and I have no doubt you'll dig your way out.
  18. a ps to my above reply; have you tried Live Chat? Never used it myself but I have read the occasional comment here that doing so quicker resolved the issue than the persons stalled ticket.
  19. but i was wondering what will happen to the inventory of the people living on the sim .. will it be returned?? >> the items are stored on LL servers so yes they can get the items back. and in what time table? >>by LLs timetable combined with it depends on when the people submit tickets asking for their stuff back, there exists plenty of precidences whereby LL will open a closed sim long enough for people to retrieve their items. about the last remark, that is not fully correct since you say the lindens never make mistakes than? >> so, LL was mistaken in closing this sim? I'd be curious as to how, cept I'm not really overly interested past questioning how they could close a sim by accident - usually there's a reason.
  20. "Yes, I understand some nasty things can happen with those blue menus." undoubtedly.
  21. I'm pretty sure it's safe to continue taunting.
  22. Nobody can mess with you're avatar unless they have access to your account, chances of someone logging into your account from your own home the result of you saving your password is a possibility you can best answer - chances of someone from any other location accessing your account is extremely remote. Secondlife is full of surprises that defy explanation; people have logged wearing items they hadn't worn and at a place they've not been to in weeks like sl deja-vu; back in the day if you weren't rezzed property your av would visibly be an 'ugly woman' called Ruth and after a bad tp you're hair and shoes would be up your a** - quite the disturbing visual indeed. SL just does bizarre stuff sometimes and that's whayt i'm thinking happened to you. Time will tell and will be your answer - if it was a one time glitch you have a story to tell your prim kids someday, if it's a reoccuring issue then you'll know something is amiss.

  23. "but when I logged into the sim Pooley as recommended my avatar is now visible and my inventory loaded fully and can interact with it...but only on this sim." *waves to chiz* Change your debug settings to prevent your avi from being a particle cloud by following this step when inworld: Click on the Advanced Menu at the top of the screen.
