  1. I can't find the link to the page where you submit a suport ticket.
  2. This is the best news from Linden Lab since the addition of Avatar Privacy and increasing the number of groups! At last, we can make clothing that looks realistic! Hot diggity dawg! Torley used those models to demonstrate the technology, and did it well. Which body shape you prefer is a matter of personal taste, insignificant to the question at hand. In the video, he demonstrates that Fitted Mesh will conform to the avatar shape even if you push it to such hideous inhuman extremes as the self-proclaimed "Standard Sizes." The point isn't about the shape; it's about the fact that the technology works even if you push the limits.
  3. This is a neat idea. I've learned from running many other forums on the web that it's best to keep the number of subforums to a minimum, creating them only when there is a clear need to isolate certain material from the main discussion. That said, I wouldn't be really hopeful about getting folks to use the convention. I've tried similar ideas in the past, and the logistics of user training usually thwart the plan. The number of visible characters in the topic list might be a problem, too. The category names would limit the characters available for each thread's unique title. Nevertheless, lead by example and see if folks pick up on it.

  7. Kew, no, the bite request does not provide any information regarding what it's about. It's just a request to "animate your avatar."
  8. A little follow-up: Recent hands-on experience rather strongly reinforces the benefit of cleaning out ancient clutter from group membership lists. A technical glitch (a group maintenance bot collided with a server upgrade) caused the Builders Brewery group's bot to remove all of it's 14,000+ members, except for those who had a role other than "Everyone." Group membership dropped by 90% overnight. Yoicks. The group grew back to several thousand members in just a couple of days, but there is still a remarkable improvement in the reliability of group performance; it's near 100% now, while at it's peak, group chat was usually laggy and often we couldn't connect to the group at all. Group moderators also noted that now it's much easier to find people in the list of people who are currently in group chat when they need to do some moderating. Based on that experience, I'd recommend cleaning out the clutter unless you have a compelling reason not to.

  11. There might be a technical argument for cleaning out moribund avatars: Each time a message goes to the group, the server has to check every group member to see if that member is on line. That's a lot of accesses to the database. Group notices would be similar; having notices and inventory offers stacking up in dead accounts and then checking to see if they have expired must put a significant load on the asset server. I suspect (but don't know) that if everyone cleaned out the dead wood, group chat would be noticeably improved. I'm thinking about the time that Linden Lab noticed that half the accounts log on only one time, and based some key business decisions on that observation. My guess is that the great majority of those one-timers were intentional--spammers, freebie grabbers, spies, and other mischief. That would up to a heck of a lot of clutter. Beyond the technical question, it depends on whether you think clutter in the list of members is a good thing or a bad thing. It's good (albeit deceptive) if you boast about the number of people who are in your group; bad if people would be using your group to find other people.
  12. Rod, Some more advice about how to learn SL from an executive viewpoint: Get yourself a motorcycle and hit the Linden mainland roads. Budget some time for this; take a ride across a couple of dozen mainland regions at a time. You'll quickly learn about many of the issues that plague residents--how difficult it is to maintain an attractive build when griefers can dump unsightly junk next door, what lag can do to you, the adventure of sim crossings. You'll find yourself thinking, "Gosh I could go over there if only there were a connecting road." You'll also experience some of the most delightful builds and the incredible creativity that people bring to Second Life. Say hello to people you meet along the way; roadside people tend to be friendly people. And you'll be delighted to learn that you can have this experience without having to get simulated bugs in your teeth! Mike Arabello, a Residents Advisory Committee sounds like a heck of a good idea to me!
  13. Wow! Welcome Rod! I'm suddenly reminded of the days when I spent five years hosting about 100 fan sites for The Sims, watching the artists disappear one by one, and saying, "Oh no! Lost another one to Second Life!"
