  1. A lot of people don't want to upgrade to Win10 simply because they've tried it and think it's s***, don't like all the telemetry (Microsoft spying on them) and just prefer Windows 7. A lot of things about the Win 10 UI suck. I use Start10 and windowblinds so my system looks pretty much like Win 7 anyway, or I boot into Linux, but the last official LL build of Secondlife for Linux was 5.0.9 so who wants to use that? No wonder people turn to 3rd party viewers, like Firestorm. It's not just a case of people not having the latest hardware anyway, a lot of the time they just don't want to use Win 10.
  2. I understand that the last names if changed are from a select list and that if upgrading to premium, members that already have a last name can change their first OR last name. What I want to know is what effect changing a first name only has on a sirname. Can someone change their firstname and KEEP their existing sirname?
  3. Wait..LL deleted my reply to Qie which clarified my question and agreed with him? Even if previous data verification has been deleted according to some policy, shouldn't there be some record that a person has already provided RL info?
  4. I have never cashed out but I sent real life proof of ID to linden lab for the age verification process several years ago (Driver license, scanned and emailed directly then verified ). Why is that ID still not on file and not able to be used for Tilia?
  5. If you never cash out and only use your card to buy L$ then no, you don't need to provide any additional information.
  6. If you only buy L$ you're not affected. If you want to CASH OUT for real world money then you are affected. LL replied at least twice in this thread I think. Come August the 1st you'll have to agree on login to some new terms but that's the only thing that will affect the majority of people that don't cash out (process credit)
  7. Exactly when is the last opportunity I would be able to get a quarterly subscription before you stop people signing up ? Right now I can sign up today, but will it be available next Friday ? (my next pay day ^^ )
  8. Currently I am basic and have been thinking about going back to Premium since the start of this year. " If you keep Quarterly subscriptions - I, and I bet others will, would go premium again! " Mundane RL things like a new Fridge freezer, cooker and then last weekend an exploding washing machine (literally..bang!) have prevented that. The announcement states that new quarterly subscriptions are no longer possible but if they were kept, then in a few weeks time I would be able to. Juggling a monthly bill for SL ($143.88 a year) on top of RL bills isn't an option
  9. Please reconsider the Quarterly subscription. I've been here 12 years and been a premium member in the past, always paid quarterly, the yearly membership fee is just to much for me to afford just as it is for many others. I worked out that with the price increases those paying quarterly will now only get a 1 month saving over those that pay monthly, over the course of a year (currently it's 2) The group limits bite, I sort of understand the reasoning but then to say you're giving higher limits to premium members when they already have 18 more slots? If you need to lower limits because of server problems but then increasing them for every premium member then, I don't get it. Really don't get it. Reduce by less or increase by less or both. I've got groups I've paid for I don't want to quit and groups joined for sentimental reasons I wouldn't be able to rejoin if I left. Bottom line. If you keep Quarterly subscriptions - I, and I bet others will, would go premium again! It's the affordable option and middle ground So please, please keep it as an option or at least, don't phase it out so quickly, keep it open a bit longer.

  11. "this set of Community Standards applies to all products, services, and environments offered or hosted by Linden Lab, including but not limited to, its websites, servers, software, forums, and blogs (as further defined in the Terms of Service, the “Service”)." If I posted a conversation on my own personal blog, on SLU or as a screenshot on Flickr there is nothing LL could or would do about it. It absolutely does not apply to any 3rd party sites, blogs or services that have no connection to Linden Lab. It would still be wrong to post private information willy nilly IMO however.
  12. From VDJ website. Professional users If you are using VirtualDJ professionally (as defined in the EULA: "if you earn money using VirtualDJ "), you need to purchase a PRO license. I guess it depends on if you consider earning money inworld the same as earning money "professionally" and to me, VDJ, like Mixxx is one of those programs geared to mixxing tracks at some point rather than just streaming, and ideally suited to a controller. As to which is easiest that's down to personal preference It's been a while since I've used VDJ but MIXXX can be customised using skins as the user wishes, is completely free, open source with NO restrictions or fees. Another which might be useful just for playing a set playlist and requests if you're not into mixing is http://www.radiodj.ro/ I've not really played around with it much so can't recommend either way. Mondy.
  13. The best free software (imho) if you're looking for the cheapest way is the open source MIXXX DJ application. This lets you stream all your music, has mixing desks, does everything Virtual DJ can do and is easier to set up and can do most things that Sam can do. Sam is a commercial program and quite expensive. Mixxx is also highly configurable to work exactly how you want using skins as shown below. https://www.mixxx.org/ All you need then is a Shoutcast server that you can rent inworld on a daily, weekly, monthly basis and then you can stream using your own land or a club that hires you There are many places to rent a server and I won't post here. Just search or ask someone that DJ's for their recommendations.
