  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  4. 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.
  5. 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/
  6. It's server maintenance see the status page for more info: http://status.secondlifegrid.net/
  7. It's the grid and server maintenance see grid status: http://status.secondlifegrid.net/
  8. It's not just you. It's an SL maintenance issue and it's gridwide right now see the following for more information on grid status: http://status.secondlifegrid.net/

While it is true that being born female is like being born into a beauty contest I don't think that that nessicarily is the only reason for being sexy in sl. Keep in mind SL is an outlet for people to express themselves and one of those ways it to express there sexuality. What better way to express that then visually through ones avatar. I personally joined SL refusing to were anything revealing and looked down on lolas. I know own lolas, BBusty, milkmades, vstring XL and Vstring X_X. I love dressing sexy in sl and it's something that I worked up to as far as being more open about my sexuality and expressing it. The prim boobies are one way that I express that. So it's not all about desirablility as a way of gaining a sense of self worth. There is also the aspect that it can be a way of learning to accept ones self in some small way. And yeah system boobs kinda suck. lol So we makes the sexyz now??? j/k :smileylol:
  10. How low were you flying because ban lines only go up 800m from the ground? I personally think LL takes the issue of flying very seriously otherwise why else would they have given us all the ability to fly in SL. :smileylol:
  11. You can also try using the preview grid. http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Preview_Grid#How_do_I_log_in_to_Aditi.3F It should be noted the directions on that page only work with the official SL viewer.
  12. LL can't even code these forums right to disallow all these escort spam posts and you expect them to code something as complex as a combat system accurately. Seriously dude that's really laughable.
  13. SL as a virtual world is what you and other residents make of it. Thus, if you want it to be like WoW then go ahead and attempt to make an SL combat system and roleplay area to be like WoW. I'm sure you'd make a killing in profits off of it. Furthermore, you suggest that LL should write all the code but that's pointless unless they wish to attempt to turn this into a game like WoW which would then be pointless for you to create animations for SL any longer because they wouldn't need you for that. You suggest that you welcome the competition but you don't get it, they wouldn't allow you to compete with them if they were to create all the animations as they would stop allowing animations to be uploaded and sold in-world. I get why you're posting this because you lack the ability to create SL scripts from scratch because you're not a programmer/coder. So I ask why should LL put the programmers/coders out of business and allow the animators continue to do business in SL? That was the point of my original post which obviously was lost upon you. SL was free the last time I checked. For LL to create all of the scripts necessary to meet the needs of all residents wants and desires would require extensive man power and coding hours. This would force them to no longer offer you and all the other residents access to SL for free. WoW isn't free and there's a reason why. I don't suppose you just give away your animations for free either so why should LL write all the code for every script needed and wanted by all residents and just give it away for free.
  14. LL should create all the animations too. Oh wait, I guess then that would put you out of business, huh? Also I see in your post you talk about combat systems but not everyone comes to SL for combat roleplay, in fact I'm willing to believe that combat roleplay makes up less then 10% of the SL population. If I want combat roleplay then I go do it on WoW or CoD or any other game. SL is a virtual world, it's not a game nor was it ever intended to be a game.
  15. To be honest I don't really have anything negative to say about LL. In my 6 years here I've been a content creator, store owner, sim owner, premium account holder, and mainland owner so I've had plenty of experience in dealing with LL for support and other issues. Generally I've found in this world you have people who are going to complain no matter what you do so it's best to just do things anyways and let the complainers complain. Also most times complainers are actually very much in the minority and they just make waves because they're loudest at what they do.
  16. I'm a bit confused here. Are you just looking for a free house or are you looking for a free house with free land? I know of several landlords that offer free housing if you rent land from them but I don't know of anyone offering free house with free land even groups that claim to offer such things typically require some sort of monetary payment. As someone else said land in sl costs money to those who own it as land takes up valuable server space which is really what you're paying for when you purchase land in a virtual world.
  17. Calling regions grandfathered is pointless as they lose the grandfathered pricing upon transfer and have been that way since 2010. See the following article for more info on the topic. http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Managing-Private-Regions/ta-p/700115#Section_.9
  18. This happens more then you think and it's possible too that maybe something happened to the sim owner in rl.
  19. I'm interested and sent you a pm regarding this.
  20. Moral of the story is don't shop at places that won't accept payment in the form of Linden$ or you're just setting yourself up for possiblity to be scammed.

  22. this is sort of deceptive advertising as 28 days/4 weeks is not the same as monthly except for the month of February.

  24. Paypal only reports income information to the IRS on people with: $20,000 USD in gross payment volume from sales of goods or services in a single year 200 payments for goods or services in the same year If you don't have either of those things then they won't report anything directly to the IRS. See the following link as a good resource: https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/marketingweb?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=marketing_us/IRS6050W Yes all lindens turned into US dollars would be considered income so it's a good idea to keep accurate records of expenses as well because those can be used as deductions to offset the amount of taxable income. Second Life allows you to view and save monthly account statements which include L$-USD and USD-L$ transaction history. You can find the statements by going to secondlife.com and then logging into your avatar account homepage, click on the account button located in the upper left side of the computer screen which opens a drop down menu where you should see a link that says account statements click on that will take you to the statements page and then there's a drop-down menu which features monthly statements for each month since you joined SL.
