  1. This product: http://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/LANDSCAPING-WINTER-PEAK-Sculpty-Ski-Mountain/152220 has disappeared from both my listed and unlisted items. Winter Peak as it is known was last sold November 10th, 2017, as it has been doing for years now. Suddenly it is erased from my merchant listings with not so much as a word as to why. I was still being charged a listing fee, which I have since deactivated. This was a good selling, seasonal product, which I am now taking a hit on, since I am losing sales while it is mysteriously delisted. I need to know what happened, but the help section for merchants is so convoluted, finding answers time consuming and next to impossible. What the ***** happened? where else can I go to get a frikken answer?
  2. Just installed the Second Life 3.7.23 viewer, and I have the exact same error: media_plugin_webkit. Likewise I have searched for and answer, tried many options mentioned in the few forums discussing this issue as far back as 2010, and no success. Firestorm is giving me the same issue, in fact, every alternative viewer is. I am running a newer window's 8 system with an up to date nvidia card. Oddly, a very old version of Firestorm on my old XP desktop can still get in, no problem, but that system is so laggy, SL is nearly impossible to function in. Too bad, I was looking forward to coming back to SL. I just can't seem to find the way.
  3. Well here we are in late spring of 2013, and I at least, have this problem on many of my listings. What frustrates me is that these listings are major products with enhancements which I allowed to lapse at one time or another and now for months if not an entire year, they are unable to receive any new listing enhancements on the homepage which is where they were originally. They are not being seen, nor is LL collecting money for the enhancements, and sales on them are down. Once again LL refuses to take my money, or deliver promised services...... And leaves products I would like to advertise compromised in terms of sales. Please, please . . . . fix this issue Lindens
  4. It appears the criminals trying to push through SOPA are the same ones that pushed through mass copyright infringement of content on the internet in the first place. Their own supreme court rulings actually threaten them as much as any stay at home mom who downloaded a few mp3s from one of "their" distribution sites: Makes any copyright theft in SL look pathetically amateurish. Under SOPA SL would be shut down on the first day.

  6. For the time being I really like the 64 meter prim limit, and will use the V3 to create one or two large prims at a time since the viewer will crash before I can build a 3rd prim. Yes the viewer was not ready for prime time, and will be very frustrating to use, but we all know LL can't design or build functional viewers for it's own world. I will be fine with waiting for Phoenix/Firestorm to come out with a more professional option. With regard to mesh, I like editing my content both in world and outside on my pc, but I really like some of the sculpty editing tools designed for use inside SL, and will definitely be giving my business to the person who develops the first decent mesh editor for use inside SL, especially if it will "shrink wrap" around my linked prim objects. Looking forward to seeing all the developments. So this is cool

If your products are good, you sell more, and you can afford more classified fees. The amount of real estate the new search gives to classifieds is simply not worth the money - where (for example) is the description and picture for the classifieds? Please add a classifieds tab to the SIDE of the search with the other tabs, then people can decide whether they want to use that tab (as the most reliable indicator of quality) to search for products. I tried to test my own classified listings . . .but oh wait, there's no area just for classifieds. Some of my customers actually found me by looking up the key terms "mountains" or "castles" only from the classifieds tab because that way they only found places advertising products that were for sale. Good luck sorting through the Everything tab to find what you need. We really do need a tab dedicated to classifieds only, otherwise it is definitely not worth paying for them.

New users haven't been trained to think of it any other way. They see a hyperlink and click it - and don't know to look for a button. Its only old users that have all of the retraining issues. But that's the interesting thing. In the search window, the parcel of interest is highlighted in LL teal (or whatever). Click on it and the side menu pops out giving you less than a paragraph of info on the parcel, no part of which is a clickable hyperlink to just guide me to what I need to know. Now after Cerise has given me the clue I needed, I look down to the bottom of that pop out menu, past all the empty space, to find an innocuous button that says "teleport". So you are right new users will not know to look for a button, but if they want to teleport to see that parcel they had better learn, just like I had to. So if you are used to hyperlinks instead of the old school buttons Pussycat, you may be the one having retraining issues.

  10. Yes I decided to test out the realestate search, but immediately found all I could get was a very brief overview of the properties listed in the search results, with no way to teleport to them. This would put me off looking for land to buy or rent since it would be a lengthy process to open the world map, enter the sim name of the parcel I am curious about, and then go to that sim and fly around trying to find the specific parcel I got info on in search. Pretty much shoots down search for land sales. Or it could be I am missing some step that people constantly using V2 eventually find out about from friends. Either way not user friendly in that way. Maybe I need to get a clue, whatever. I did like that I could find categories of land based on criteria of for sale or for rent, and I was even to find property along the SL railroad by typing "railroad" in search while in the realestate tab. But then I could not find the F?<&!^@ parcels. Not much use if I am searching for land.
  11. Well I guess in the US, college and highschool students going on "Spring Break" used to flock to Mexican beach resorts, though with the spate of anti-US drug abductions and killings going on down there this may be less of a trend now. So perhaps spring breakers are flocking to the Bahamas . . . oh yeah didn't an American get killed there too? So relevant spring break items could be: guns, alcohol, bondage toys, beach cabanas, or even just plain old hog tied corpses. I guess I should market my prefab beach as the "perfect spot for a kegger and or drug cartel slayings!"
  12. Well I have gone in and manually selected "General" on my product which was getting automatically slated as "Moderate" by LL. Now it shows up on my store list where as before it would not, even if I had selected "include moderate/adult" before opening the store list. I suspect I will have to do this for every item of my inventory which has been surreptitiously rated into oblivion by LL's immaturity bot software. Perhaps manually reassigning maturity level on products several times a day in an ongoing struggle . . . . Or will the product just get delisted after so many automated changes are forced to take over? It would be one hell of a lot easier to just have the list of terms to avoid so I don't have to guess what will work in my product wording. By the way, here is a link to the product in question: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/GOTHIC-RUINS/152239
  13. Prior to reading this announcement I was completing the keywords on a marketplace product that sells fairly often, my Gothic Ruins, a non mature item. I added some keywords including "roleplay" and "Gor". Now this listing which is also paid for enhancement, does not appear, even if I have "show mature items" checked. If I look at my store it is gone. If I check inventory it still registers as there. I took the word "Gor" out after reading this thread. The item is still gone . . . I cannot find my own listing in my own store unless I hunt it down using my inventory function. Likewise trying to use Search to find it is hopeless. Wow. I had noticed my normal rate of sales had steeply dropped this week, and even wondered if it was a search issue. Now I know it is. LL screwed us merchants and creators yet again. How would you fuckers like to have your ability to pay your bills repeatedly taken away by capricious and arbitrary decisions? I have my tier coming up next week and at this newly declined rate may very well not be able to pay it. 5 years of sticking it out through every incompetent decision LL has made. I realize LL doesn't care if we lose our stores, they never did.
  14. I just want to say it frustrates me to see so many SL comrades frustrated by not being able to access this interesting beta. Another case of LL having a premature Betaculation. I really wish LL would consider the bad press they generate with rushing things out before they are ready, when, if they only waited until it was a little more ready, most of that bad press would be modifed to positive public response. It's not a case of making just a few sour apples unhappy, time and time again, the majority of eager participants feel snubbed by poorly considered releases by LL. Those of us that got in, can talk it up all we want, but our positive response is deadened by the complete let down that is unnecessarily inflicted on those who, for technical and administrative reasons were not allowed to get in.
  15. To be clear, yes, the test is U.S.-only at the moment. Sounds like you don't have all the facts. You guys at the lab need to communicate better with each other before you try to communicate with us.
