  1. Technical bug my butt. They want as many of the fees as they can get so yeah they'll force you to do it in L$ so then the buyer has to pay 7.5% to LL for buying L$, the seller has to pay 3.5% selling fee to LL to convert those L$ to USD$. If the seller then wants to use those USD$ out in the real world then they have to pay Tilia aka. LL a 5% process credit fee. So in essence, LL is getting at least 15% of the revenue in L$ and USD$ transaction fees alone from the simple sale and ownership transfer of a private region. It is funny how we have to pay to transfer a region in L$ but cannot pay for monthly region tiers to LL in L$.
  2. True, you could agree to sale using some 3rd Party payment app outside of SL for everything except the Transfer Fee which is the only amount that the Lindens truly care about as it's their bread and butter. Personally I see nothing wrong with cutting them out of the double dipping on the actual sale transaction since they are already doing that with the Transfer fee.
  3. I believe Rowan is referring to setting the access at the Region level rather than the Parcel level. If you do it at the Region level these bots can never TP into/Access the region unless they meet the requirements. Parcel level restrictions will add ban lines that only go up to about 800m and can be circumvented above that unless all Parcels in the region have the same access settings checked at which point it makes more sense for you as the Region owner to just make those settings on the Region level to get rid of the ban lines altogether.
  4. This is apparently the correct answer since the word Goddess is somehow on the list of forbidden and banned words for a land name/region name now. The other answer by Rolig is nice but I also tried different variations of Goddess World, such as Goddess World 1, Goddess World 2, Goddess World I, Goddess World II and all of them were labeled as forbidden. I finally spoke with a Linden support person and was told that Goddess is indeed on the forbidden words list now for a region or estate name. Knowing regex expressions and how they work I've actually found a way around that though so all is good.
  5. What about Estate Names? I wasn't trying to use it for the Region Name.
  6. Ok makes sense for the region name aspect which I actually wasn't doing but not so much for the Estate Name which is what I was trying to use. Also, what doesn't make sense is why 'SL is Poop' or 'SL is Crap' are deemed acceptable when the naming requirements says the use of 'SL' in any fashion is forbidden in the name. Seems the Lindens forgot to properly program their regex for the region and estate name inputs.
  7. I find it interesting that Goddess World is a forbidden land/estate name but "SL is Crap" or "SL is Poop" are perfectly acceptable land/estate names. Anyone have any idea why this would be?
  8. The Nevada 6 giving Biden the win depended upon which news agency you where looking at because many never called and still haven't called Arizona for Biden because the vote is still outstanding there and Biden's lead has been shrinking there every time they update the results. Pennsylvania did give him the win though because they have 20 electoral college votes and those put Biden with at least 273 EC votes depending again upon which news agency you followed.
  9. We've also yet to hear him condemn all these large gatherings of strangers across the US today where people have been seen on video drinking hooch from the same cups and not wearing their masks while hugging strangers. But you know Trump supporters are the only one's that are irresponsible. The set of double standards is why we're so divided in the first place. If he wants to unify us then he can start by condemning the actions of his own supporters today but I won't hold my breath for that because he needs these same people 4 years from now.
  10. This sort of price gouging and lunacy is only going to continue until Linden Lab decides to open up the land store again and you can buy regions from them directly for a mere $349 US. That's crazy but just another example of the wild west, price gouging nature of the Private Region land market with Linden Lab refusing to open up the Land Store. Until the Lab decides to reopen the Land Store and pop the secondary market bubble for Private Regions, this sort of lunacy will continue. Once that bubble starts to pop lots of these people will start to lose their shirts because they way overpaid on Private Regions they could've had directly from the Lab for $349 USD.
  11. Only rent from the chungs as a last resort. They have locked in special, cheaper rates than anyone else gets, Grandfathered tiers they pay to LL that don't change.
  12. Only half of them? Also, when did SL stop being the Adult Friend Finder?
  13. I've been experiencing similar issues. Not surprised to find that inventory is stored on the crap show that is AWS considering most the internet is now powered by AWS. The great failure in having over 40% of the internet on one hosting provider like AWS is that even though it's in the cloud it's still become a central point of failure.
  14. I have brand new clean installs of both Firestorm and LL viewer both of which have the Dullahan process running on my pc when the viewer is running.
  15. Be happy that's the only thing that isn't working for you. My entire SL using the LL viewer and the Firestorm viewer is completely borked right now. Having issues teleporting, wearing outfits, purchasing items, buying L$ because L$ balance appears as ?? when in-world. Reported to SL support but they will probably never do anything about it or respond to my ticket.
  16. The fact that adding a full body alpha layer to the avatar fixes this issue suggests that it's actually an LL issue with how their software interacts with the different Intel graphics card hardware. Perhaps LL should be looking into what recent features they've released that would cause such a problem.
  17. Apparently, they aren't going through to Gmail either as that's who my email provider is and I haven't gotten my purchase confirmation emails recently from the MP.
  18. Amethyst Jetaime wrote: They are too busy with Sansar, so that will happen when...  Surely you jest. Pigs can be seen flying everyday in SL. In fact, I was flying already earlier today in SL.
  19. Your suggestion is a bit asinine to me. For starters some people hear about SL's money making abilities from friends, internet sources, business articles and come here specifically to start a business designing items to sell. Additionally, some people create separate avatars specifically for creating and selling items. Restricting marketplace isn't going to limit copybotters because they'll still copy your stuff and just wait the time frame required and then list it on marketplace. In fact a time frame restriction hurts legitimate creators more than it does copybotters. Your best option against a copybotter is exactly what you have done a DMCA report filed against them.
  20. This is the end of second life as we know it. Finally all the SL doomsdayers were right. Wait what's that you say it's just your normal weekly sim server maintenance. Phew what a relief that is now I can go about my day waiting for the maintenance to commence. Get updated here: http://status.secondlifegrid.net/
  21. It's server maintenance see the status page for more info: http://status.secondlifegrid.net/
