    What are some of your pet peeves?

    If you do a search of Forum Netiquette you will find a lot of different ones, since most forums have them, but all share the same basic principles, and the same goal: show respect for other readers by making your posts clear and polite, posting in the right forums, etc.That means using the conventions of written language, using a relevant thread title, and omitting insults to prospective readers, esp when requesting help, among many other things. A forum in which there are no rules, or like this one in which so many people ignore them, and there is no resident moderator to enforce them, creates frustration and aggravation. Therefore it is up to those who use the forum to articulate the Netiquette as well as SL specific rules for those who clearly are unaware. And often they do not like that. But most learn from the experience.

    Weird triangles on mesh and texture

    Decimating means making more triangles, tho.

    This. It shows the writer’s contempt for his readers: “Let them try to figure out what I am saying, my time is too valuable to spend using conventions to make myself clear.” I taught writing to all ages from grades two to twelve. They all could use conventions when they wanted people to read their writing. Literally all of them could use periods, capitalizations, paragraphs, correct spelling, etc.

    The J stands for Join 🙂 you undoubtedly have too many triangles for one material.. SL will use up a certain number of triangles (I forget the number) then will create a separate material. In any case it makes a bit of a mess.

    What do you mean, which you have merged? merged vertices?

    Missing item in my inventory

    Usually it’s not worth trying all the different ways there are to recover inventory but in your case it might be. I have a webpage where I collect useful tips for doing that. https://lagalleriasl.com/recovering-inventory/ It’s not exhaustive, tho — like I don’t remember if I added that tip LittleMe gave you.

    What are some of your pet peeves?

    People who don’t read my FAQ but want me to copy and paste it into an IM for them. People who don’t make ANY effort to find information before asking in the forum. People who don’t read Forum Guidelines before posting name and shame in the forum. people who ask for help in the forum but threaten in their OP that only people who post what they want to hear need reply. People who think everything that malfunctions in SL is the result of some creator, some neighbor, or LL, but never their own misunderstanding. People who abuse helpers in the forum People who don’t read the TOS and think their wishes supersede it. oh and the Grand Prize: People who send notecards even tho I beg them not to in auto response, FAQ, and in having the display name NoNotecardsPlease.

    Second Life on Steam?

    I don’t see people here being impatient with people who have made their own effort to investigate how to do something, and come here for more info. When people here are impatient, it has nothing to do with a persons SL or RL age per se but with their sense of entitlement, their finger pointing and blaming, their insults, their know-it-all refusal to try tested advice, etc. When I come to the forums for help, it is with a great sense of gratitude for the time, effort, and knowledge I am asking people to freely give. That is only fair. It is just inconceivable to me to instead abuse and insult.

    I afraid someone did something to me

    We have had several people over the years report that they were wearing their entire inventory. In every case I think they were able to fix it, but it took Linden help. PS Rarely is a problem caused by “someone doing something” to you. More likely always is SL malfunctioning or user error.

    Second Life on Steam?

    I learned most everything I know by asking in the forums (if not on Google). I have been told that no one who runs a business could really be as dumb as I am. What I did not do is make a long list of basic things I have learned and presume forum members and Lindens have not, and post it in a random thread. If I wanted to post that kind of thing I would start a thread like the one Selene recently did. I do have web pages like my Homeowners Guide that is designed for new residents, where I post that kind of info.
  14. No. But someone may know how to use a group to do that.

    As I said, common knowledge for those who make the slightest effort to be well informed — like pretty much everything else in his news flash.
