  1. My peeve is I don't understand why people strike poses at events and not move. Can someone tell me why this is a thing? Does it reduce lag (when these avatars are often jellied out already) or is it a trend? So real peeve is my bad purchase: no prim/land impact info on vendors at main event! Last week, I bought a pack of fruit bowls" thinking, maybe 2 LI, but one was 9, the others 6, and all too small to reduce further. The entire event display was linked in a manner that I couldn't count the individual LI --everything de-linked and re-linked hodgepodge, making count impossible. I based my decision on expectation of what to expect at a major event, and bought 2 items on my said expectation. 1. Individual fruit bowls and juice bottles. 2. Picture. Deleted the whole thing. So I paid 550L for a picture because the bottles were another 250L! I had to TP back and examine her display for my missing bottles. Ok TP, no big deal, right? but the event was full! Took forever. Creator just grumbled at me when I questioned her method of non disclosure of LI and how to buy her products. Learned a lesson even after all these years (2009). If LI not listed, not buying even if they're invited to big events and items are cute, and will never buy from this seller who wouldn't "at least" credit me (gift credit would have been fine) and fix her signage. So, I'm my own pet peeve.
  2. I don't think anyone is tricked. So, are the gaming centers closing next?
  3. Like many, I had a love hate relationship to Gachas. At a Gacha event, no, fine, but some creators used gachas at every event. I rarely played those...usually look up on MP what the resells was going for. I also had them in my stores years ago. I, like many, looked forward to the array of interesting things being resold. Irregardless of gambling, there is a swath of residents who'll lose their income. Resale is huge, with many resell sites and a category on Market Place. I remember when sploder was taken away too. I loved Sploder, it was great fun at a club... I'm so very sorry to resellers, creators and residents who enjoyed gachas. Such a shame.
  4. I was really upset. So many changes to SL in the past few years that I felt the world of SL was safer with him at the helm. Sending condolences to the Lab and his family.
  5. Always designed built in Second Life for extra real life money and to support my SL addiction.
  6. My younger brother died last July. He didn't believe Covid was a big deal because Trump downplayed the virus and he like millions belived their leader and took unnecessary risks. It's heartbreaking.
  7. Thanks for replying. I did read their TOS, so no need to throw things at me. I hadn't seen the popups stating they collected cookies until recently and got me thinking. I really thought we were somehow immune to Sarons eye. Silly me. Thanks for those who provided tthoughtful answers. Made these today. Peanut butter chocolate chips. .
  8. I'm getting notices everywhere that Linden Labs is now collecting cookies, tracking, what we buy, how we use MP, etc. I'm not sure I like them knowing what I'm doing in Second Life--privacy is what I loved the most. Anyone else have thoughts?

    customs

    I quit custom work because it was too hard to please ppl. Once made five red ribbons for a customer and it wasn't *her* red. Even though she gave me an original swatch!!! Limit what you're willing to do.
  10. When you're fully ready to give up your social life in SL. That's when.
  11. Ugh no. I wouldn't want my design in some horrible color walking around.
  12. Great comments. Thanks to all
  13. Had second Phizer Vax 3 weeks ago and most of the family is vaxed. Still wearing masks around town but not so anxious. My younger brother died of Covid in July. Two friends also. Second Life has been a real comfort during these times.
  14. Does anyone want to use BOM for clothing again? I've many gowns and women clothes made prior to mesh. Some look great on BOM, as I've tested and created new clothes as well as updated a few gowns. But it's unclear to me if the population is interested. The bom looks way better than on a standard body and offers natural drop shadows. The main issue is clean matching lines for various bodies, similar to mesh sizing. Clean shoulder lines on body A, skewed lines on body B. AND BOM bodies look perfect on some bodies, while other bodies have irregularities that can't be fixed by the designer. A newer body is offering a fix on their hud for butt suck and bewbies clinging with BOM. resolving one main gripe about BOM Clothing. Anyways curious if you think it's coming back in a serious way. I've searched for answers but most BOM is skin and makeups. Thanks if you have time.
  15. My brother died of Covid and two high school friends. It's been a rough year. Thank God for Second Life.
  16. I'll try another sim. Geez hope I don't have to move. TY
  17. Is anyone having problems with prims moving back to original location "after" moving them? And is anyone having issues editing prims, specifically "getting hold of it?" I'm having trouble getting into hold of prims in edit. Especially linking items, grab one, second one, no way will it link without stopping and trying again. Is this an issue on my land or is Second Life having issues? I'm an experienced builder but drifting prims, and uncooperative edits is making me nuts. Been this way for a few weeks. Any suggestions are appreciated.
  18. I picked one up a few days ago. Huge new area still not fully released. The whole sim is empty and script messages on every house with area info. Stay tuned for those.
  19. My house was abandoned and scooped up within moments. See other threads for the mystery behind my missing house.
  20. No nothing. I was on, too, but no indication of return items or nothing.
  21. Linden Labs insists I abandoned it. As a ten year steady member and content developer, I'm not buying it. I would have gathered my items, not just abandoned my home with such recklessness. But they have all the power. I got another house but I'll mise my ocean view and wonderful neighbors.
  22. THANK you. At least I'm not going crazy.
