  1. IM and send a notecard to the creator or seller. When I get a response I'll buy the item.
  2. When you purchase a full perm item you are NOT purchasing the right to resell it, unless the creator/seller gives you that permission. Usually this will be in the form of a TOS notecard, and usually this will say you may resell it in a very modified form, which means you need to create your own item from it. For example, you buy full perm buttons, you put it on your shirt and then you can sell the shirt with the buttons, and only copy mod or transfer, not full perm. These are the usual rules. And here is the biggest rule - if you don't know then the right thing to do is to ask the creator/seller, and never assume that if no rules are supplied then it's free to do what you want.
  3. Merchants do have to do work to create the items they sell on the marketplace, and then they get that money after fees are paid to the marktetplace. Hope that helps.
  4. those nagging thoughts - Being told I should get out more, and thinking maybe I should Worrying about not getting enough exercise, so now I have an excuse Feeling guilty about staying up all night and sleeping half the day away, and spending way too much time in SL
  5. and I hope people get my underlying message here - that the Lindex is not so easily spooked!!! Without intervention it stays stable, like it did for those several years. Nothing spooked it then either.
  6. Not spooked by the virus to cause it to go ballistic, unlike other unknown things that we debate about, so thank you to everyone for staying calm. But Ebbe did indicate that he expected the rate to stabilise and he was right! No virus is going to change that.
  7. I need to turn the volume down whenever Grumpity talks.
  8. A 3 year old friend told me she found it through YouTube.
  9. Consider the full perm market, which is a huge business on MP and inworld. Without these restrictions anyone could buy these full perm items and then sell them as is at a lower price, hence competing with the full perm seller. It is important that the restrictions are clear in the description, however most people in SL would be aware that full perm items come with restrictions. Otherwise, the full perm seller could potentially be just selling their entire business over and over again, with people selling with a race to the bottom. Finally the full perm seller would have to just give up. That's not a very good business model at all. The DMCA notices do help here, and thank goodness because without them there would be no full perm sellers on the market, except perhaps the very generous who don't care how things turn out. The full perm market is a very useful resource for builders, and one not many people would want to do without, I'm sure. So, here is an example of how very important the EULA is, and the consequences of not having it and the DMCA.
  10. OK, If I said to my son 'you never answer me when I talk to you! ☹️', he isn't going to say 'yes I do! Remember last week when you asked me if I wanted that last piece of pizza, I said yeah! 😋.
  11. Your logic is flawed. I stopped reading after this line because of it. You are basing the value of the L$ on the U.S. $ and that is not what I am buying; when I am spending U.S. $ to buy Linden $ then the more Linden $ I get per $1 U.S., then that is a higher value of that $1 U.S. I stopped struggling to understand what you were trying to say after this line Because I think you misunderstood what Dima was saying. She was talking about inflation resulting from a devalued L$, i.e., basing the value of the L$ on what you can buy with it. If we have inflation in rent and goods and services you would end up getting less value for your L$. ETA: This is worth thinking about, who is most likely to gain from inflation - merchants, customers, landlords, renters or LL?
  12. You are forgetting that the vast majority of buy orders are inworld and 'at market'.
  13. Oh Molly, we had a debate about this for pages and pages when you were another name. I remember us getting into all sorts of twists and turns to the point I got such a headache. And as Wulfie says 'here we go again' It's not normal behaviour - I am a share and currency trader, and I know what normal behaviour looks like ETA: I've been a trader since 1997, so I've spent over 20 years analysing market behaviour, everyday.
