  1. Is there any way to see who rates your product if they don't leave a message? I have ratings from 5 stars to 3 stars to one star. I would really like to contact those that gave it a lower rating to see what they didn't like or possibly offer a refund. I really wish they would have left a reason. Its hard to improve your prduct with no feedback.
  2. I live in lower Michigan so my power was out for most of it. So I was staying in an apartment with 8 people! So I was giong nuts since I have social anxiety lol. When the power came back on I was in sl catching up on work and dealing with drama at our race track.
  3. Temp rezzors are very popular with vendors. I know many that use them, I use them as well. Many have them set up so when you click an object the product rezzes out for a set amount of time then goes away. I have a very simple system that I made that is triggered when an avatar comes within a certain distance of the trigger. When it gets triggered it turns on the temp rezzors and all my product gets rezzed. It stays out until no one is in my store anymore. Then all of them die out. So I have no inventory in my store until you walk in. You walk in it all rezzes out and repeats until you leave. From what I understand what kills a sims performance is temp rezzors that have poorly written scripts and people that rezz lots of objects repeatedly at a higher rate than they need to. Like say a temp object lasts for one minute, they have the re rez set to 20 or 30 seconds. This means if you are temp rezzing 100 objects you are actually going to end up with 2 or 3 hundred at any given time because the new ones re rez before the old ones die. I have also been told by many scripters and some people that trouble shoot privately for LL that the quality of a script is far more important than the number of them. You could have 2,000 well written scripts low script time and the sim will run fine. 1 or 2 poorly written scripts can really wreak havoc on a sim though. And from what I understand some of the comercial temp rezz system are sim killers. For example, we have another store on our sim that temp rezzes cars when you click a sign. For some reason when this thing rezzes a car it hits hard, it slows you down like your walking in mud. I believe the cars it rezzes are around 300 prims. We have another vendor that does a similar thing with a different brand of car, no such lag. And when my shop rezzes out It rezzes well over 500 prims. No lag is noticed and there is no large drop in the performance of the sim if you look at the numbers. And mine rez out every 50 seconds until someone leaves the shop. Sim and land owners tend to not like them because some of them can cause lag. Not to mention on an rp sim with weapons if you have too many temp objects rezzed the bullets in your gun or arrows in your bow won't work because there are no prims left to rez them. This is what they were originally intended for I think. LL doesn't like them because you can cheat on your prim usage. You can buy a 512 lot that has a prim count of 117 prims and end up rezzing many more prims. I am sure they would rather have you buy more land to increase your prim count. I guess land owners that rent would feel the same way. They would rather you buy the extra prims. On our sims we don't so much mind as long what your using is not hurting the sim. As in the one I mentioned with the cars, we are not to concerned with it since it only does when someone actually clicks the display. And it doesn't always do it. Now if it was repeatedly rezzing out and dragging the sim down it would have to go.
  4. wow lots of typos in that one lol. I am not fixing them on purpose since it still conveys what I wanted to say wink.
  5. I have not seen anywhere here were anyone called you stupid. I see you calling us stupid though. Let me give you some simple forum advice to make things smoother for you in the future. People do not like to be corrected on spelling and grammer in chat and forums. It is considered bad form on most forums. Especially when most of them are typos. I will assure it is not a good way to make friends or get help. It just ends up going bad from there on, as it has here. Don't just assume that because someone does not spell or type well that they do not know anything. Some of us didn't take english class 2 years ago or are taking it now, we took it 25 years ago and we didn't grow up with computers so we don't type that well. Or we don't see that well so we miss mistakes before posting. Doesn't mean we don't anything. Wiat unitl your 40 and some teenager lectures you on your spelling lol. When I was kid you would not have dreamed of doing such a thing. My guess will be once you verify your age with a photo id and sl can prove you created a fictisious account they will ban you, not welcome you to the teen grid. I could be wrong though. I don't think they are giving you an option for second chance, I think they are giving you the opertunity to prove them wrong. I am honestly sorry I responded to this thread. I get off the computer for a few hours and I have over 100 emails from this thread lol. And from what I can see you are not sorry you did it, you are sorry you got busted. Not the same thing. And yes you can go to jail for something this simple I have a nephew in jail right now for something similar. Not in sl but in a regular chat room. It was an adult chat room and he got busted talking about mature things with a minor who had to lie to get into it. All depends on the prosecuter, the judge and how good of an attorney you can afford. He got 7 years and he never even touched anyone, it was all chat with what he believed was an adult.
  6. Well here is the deal as I see it, but since I don't work for LL I can't say for sure. Your a 14 year old girl and you lied about your age to get into adult second life. Which is againts their policy and a bannable offense. Sounds like you must have told someone in world and they turned you in, since as far as I know LL doesn't go around doing background checks on its 100,000 some members. Being under age in sl is no trivial thing or a laughing matter. Its an adult playground and no place for young children. Sure you say you were there for nothing adult and that is fine, but what if you are lieing about that? If you were there doing adult things and someone older got mixed up with you it could be very bad for them. In the U.S. depending on how things transpired they could go to Prison!! This is exactly why they have the teen grid and that is the one you should have joined from the get go. Sounds to me like you got busted breaking the rules and they banned you. What exactly did the email say? Was it a ban or a suspension? My guess would be if you got banned for falsifying your age you might as well give up. Your banned, I hightly doubt sweet talking them will help. Saying "I am sorry I won't do it again and I will go the teen grid" probably won't do you much good. Sometimes in life you mess up and you just have to suffer the punishment. My 16 year old wanted in second life too because he said the teen grid sucked. I talked to my boss in sl about it and she said no way not worth the risk. We run a racing sim, so it would be no big deal for him to be there. We just work on cars and drive around. No nudity or anything. But by letting him be there if he gets busted not only will he get banned. I will get banned as will his mother because we all share the same connection. As would my boss if they can prove she had knowledge he was underage. My girlfriend manages a club, I manage 3 sims and have 2 businesses in sl and my boss owns the three sims. That is a lot of risk to take just so my 16 year old can goof off on the computer. I would rather have him outside hanging out with friends anyway instead stuck in his room on a computer like me lol. I hope your parents don't have businesses or responsibilities in sl as well. Because you may have ruined it for them. I am trying to feel sorry for you, but can't seem to do it. You cheated and you got caught, sorry. Personally I am gald, the thought of 14 year old girls running around sl scares the crap out of me! I am wondering how you even got into these forums? I thought you had to be registered in sl to use them.
  7. Hmm, I don't know much about using multiple video cards or if that would be the issue. I do have a friend inworld that is using two or three 250s I think. Not sure if he uses windows 7 or not though. When I see him online I will link him to this thread and see if he can be of any help. Glad I didn't have any issues with mine lol. I just installed the card and drivers and it worked for me. I tried a really kick ass ATI card to begin with though and SL does just not like ATI drivers for some reason! Vladi
  8. I am using windows 7 RC with a NVidia 9800 GTX+ video card and it works great. And I have tried the Kirsten, Greenlife, Gemini and Cool viewers, all work. If you do not have windows 7 yet you will love it. Vladi
