  1. Check the thread "Unlisted due to banned text" right here in this forum. I was hit by it, too, and after ideas from that thread I removed the word "Kinder" (german for children) from the german description - no problem anymore. I had also opened a support ticket, which was answered by Dakota Linden. After figuring out the triggering word, Dakota escalated the problem to a supervisor. Most likely "Kinder" triggered the ban hammer because of the Company Ferrero holding a copyright for different sweets sold under the name "Kinder", like Kinderschokolade and so on. This *should* not trigger the ban hammer, Ferrero doesn't hold the rights to that word outside of yummy RL cholocate products. Hopefully it will be fixed.

  2. I was hit by the same automatic unlisting and opened a support ticket. After finding this thread here, I deleted the german word for children (Kinder) from the german description and the listing was accepted. I added this to my ticket (which was meanwhile answered by Dakota Linden, who asked to let him know if the trigger-word should not trigger the filters, so it can be escalated to the supervisors.

    Weil die als US-Unternehmen vielleicht US-Steuern zu US -Steuersätzen an den US-Staat abführen? Nur noch so eine Idee ...

    Ernsthaft:. Die Leistung wird in den USA erbracht, Steuerschuldner ist demnach LL und muss den US -Steuersatz aufschlagen
    Allerdings wenn du ein SL-Business, kannst du  dich über die Ust-ID ganz davon befreien lassen. Vorausgesetzt du hast dieses Gewerbe auch in Deutschland angemeldet.



     

    Öhm, nein. LL bietet einen elektronischen Service außerhalb der USA an und muss von deutschen Kunden die deutsche MwSt kassieren und abführen. In Frankreich die französische. In GB die britische. Usw. usf. Kleiner Lesetip, allerdings auf Englisch:

    True. But the Left spends huge amounts on studying and learning how to change minds and indoctrinate the inattentive. 

    If one has good ideas and does not want to live under the ideology of failed systems... hiding and keeping the good ideas to one's self is pretty much certain failure. However, you are entitled to do as you choose.

    If you aren't seeing the bashing, I suspect it is because you aren't speaking up. Try triggering a s snowflake or two.

     

    Okay, I snap the bait. If you want to talk about indoctrinating: watch Fox "News" or read what the Liar-in-Chief writes on Twitter.

     

    It is also quite funny talking about the ideology of failed systems - while the big majority of those who critizise the current US situation don't look at those failed systems but at well working systems like in many European countries. Systems that don't put you out of your house to be able to pay your medical bills or paying back your student loans.

     

    It is also funny when you talk about triggering a snowflake - look at what all you wrote and think about who got triggered...

     

    BTW, the OP made a typical mistake often made especially by republican americans: thinking that the whole world (in this case the whole SL) rotates around their own little backyard aka the USA.

    And there it is ... I was asking opinions and gutter sniping goes into effect... thank you all for your input . All I was asking is shouldnt this be taken more seriously... 

     

    You didn't just ask for opinions, you called for a boycott. Both SL in world and this forum are public but privately owned places, you can (as long as it doesn't violate the ToS or community standards) state your opinion, but as it is with all public places, freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom of consequences. Be it responses you don't like to hear or getting kicked out of privately owned places. You can always mute people or visit other places/clubs.

  6. Raising the rents while at the same time the value of the L$ went up dramatically over the last few weeks in my eyes is a big no-no. Today to cover the fees for a non-grandfathered full region you have to sell like L$3000 less than two months ago. So they take more money while having to pay less. Vote with your feet and rent somewhere else.

    I have never had a USD balance. Never will. I have not had to agree to Tilia TOS to buy Ls. I have not had to agree to Tilia just to be able to log in because as LL found out that is coercion and quite illegal in the US.

     

    My goodness, this is NOT about YOU! You are not the center of the universe, not even the center of SL! I know that someone using SL the way you do has not to agree to the Tilia TOS - I have a couple of such accounts myself! I also have an account that sells enough L$ each year to cover the premium membership (and cashed out aka processed credit twice in 13 years, the last time maybe 8 years ago) - with this one I only had to agree to the Tilia TOS but not provide aditional personal data. And I have my SIM owner account that doesn't cash out aka process credit but sells high amounts of L$ (well, high for little me) that not only had to agree to the Tilia TOS but also provide aditional data for just selling the next batch of L$. Just in case this is the cause for your confusion: "cash out" for me means "taking money out of SL". Simply selling L$ to cover SL fees is not cashing out.

    No, I am not wrong. I don't sell Ls. Ever. If you are selling Ls then chances are you are withdrawing. I. DO. NOT. SELL. Ls NOR DO I WITHDRAW REAL MONEY FROM SL in any form.

    Get it through your thick skulls.

     

    Yes, you are wrong. Quote: "If you never cash out you never have to agree to the Tilia terms. It is that simple."

     

    Having US$ in your account from selling L$ is enough for having to agree to the Tilia terms. Selling high numbers of L$ without cashing out can be enough for having to provide additional personal info.

     

    Get it through your thick skull.

    I suspect this may be partly a terminology confusion. Apparently the standard usage of "cash out" puts the emphasis on "cash" -- the LindeX conversion from L$s to US$s within the account -- rather than on "out", instead using "process credit" to refer to transfer of US$s out of the SL account to PayPal, Skrill, etc.

    (Until all this Tilia brouhaha began, I'd long used "cash out" to refer to that funds transfer, apparently incorrectly.)

    All that said, my current understanding is that data provided to Linden Lab, necessary to enable large-volume LindeX transactions, does not apply to Tilia, which only gets involved with the funds transfers, not conversions from L$s to US$s. 

    I can only tell you what happened to me, no matter if you call it "cash out" or "process credit". Simply selling "too many" L$ on the LindeX is enough to get blocked from selling more L$ until the wanted data is provided (according to Live Chat). Even without even looking at the "Process Credit" link I can't start another sale. This is from the LindeX Sell L$ page:

    This account as far as I remember never was used to process any credit out of SL.

    If you never cash out you never have to agree to the Tilia terms. It is that simple. I never cash out and didn't have to agree. Of course, I'm the one that brought up the fact that the way they were doing things was coercion and they did back track on making everyone agree when they realized I knew wtf I was talking about. They know they would lose in court which is exactly where they were going to find themselves if they had persisted.

    Actually that is wrong. If you hit some non-disclosed amount of L$ when selling them on the LindeX, you will be asked for additional information before being allowed to even sell L$ again. My sim owner account which sells L$ worth approx U$12k per year was hit by this request and was told this from support. Support also said that they are in contact with those who can edit the FAQ to have that added there. So if you need to sell L$ to pay for your region fees, you better don't wait for the last day and make sure that you can actually sell. Trying to cash out isn't the only trigger for data collection.

    You don't have to verify your PayPal account with a bank account, you can do it with a major credit card.

    But, you SHOULD verify PayPal with a bank account!  Why?  Because you want to transfer money out of SL.  If you sell your $L and then transfer $USD to PayPal...how are you going to spend it?  It has to be moved from PayPal to some real world financial institution...i.e., a bank account.  You can't transfer money TO a credit card, they are designed to work only in the other direction, spending money.

     

    It is quite easy to spend money that is parked on PayPal, there are many online shops (or ebay sellers) that accept paypal as billing method. Also you can transfer money to a credit card, online casinos for example often allow payouts only to the billing method that was used to to pay them before.

    I am really wondering when i look at marketplace and inworld.

    The prices for Homestead are still the same in L$ then before the bis 15% price change.

    Do i miss something or do you think that will change in the future?

     

    Most Homesteads already are on the even lower grandfathered monthly fee, especially those rented out by big land companies. For them nothing changed, so they have nothing to forward to their customers. Same goes for grandfathered full regions.

  13. With the new lower setup fees buying a used region becomes less attractive, so I would say getting a new one from LL is faster and less hassle. If you buy a used one from another resident, a move and rename is free as long as it is done directly in the transfer ticket.

     

    In case you want to get even lower monthly fees by buying a grandfathered region the used market is the only way.


  14. There actually was a time when LL allowed a distinction between the owner of an estate and the person who pays for it. The "owner" was given all rights to the estate (even those not available to estate managers) with the exception of being able to sell the estate. This procedure was ended by LL a couple of years ago, on the height of the Low-Prim-Region-Hype, I guess because it was used too often for the rental of these regions.

    You can't transfer money TO a credit card.  That's not LL's fault, it's just the way credit cards work. 

    Actually often you can transfer money to a credit card, I have done that often enough (Visa and Mastercard) with money won on Poker websites :-) There even were times when I received a little interest on a positive credit card balance (more than on my normal banking account). Sadly those times are long gone...
