  1. Hi friends, I've got a premium account and it's annually billed... coming up for renewal soon. If I cancel it and turn into a free account (with payment info on file still), will it change my account's Billing/Trading limits? Thanks in advance. <3
  2. I can confirm that I've also had the first error, where names start reverting to whichever product you use as a template. It seems to happen randomly for me, and with 200+ listings I don't always catch it. I hope people know to read the description. The auto fill thing is horribly buggy and leads to incorrect/useless search results. Avoid at all cost. Just copy and paste from another window, is my advice.
  3. As a consumer, I like wearing a combination of appliers and mesh clothing... because mesh clothing so rarely fits me properly and works best as a baggy things, I layer it with applier leggings, socks, camisoles, etc. So, I think system layers converted to appliers are still going to be a thing, now and in the future. As a creator of fashion, I like that appliers can allow me to add materials effects (shiny leggings!) and more detail to my older system clothing. It's worth redoing items, I feel, even though there's a bit of a learning curve to it all. If your favourite system clothing creator's still around, you can always ask them about adding appliers for your mesh body. We're usually pretty good about doing that on request even if we have no plans to update something old.

If you want it for vendor pics or anything like that, send me an IM and I'll drop it on you. Suggestion? Make it into a product, price it at what you think is appropriate .. and advertise it in the normal manner. See how it does. It might turn into a slow burner that .. over time .. keeps your account from hitting rock bottom. (and we ALL know the joys of "what do you mean all my money is spent?!?" ... LOL) Oh I have enough products to worry about and it's hardly up to my current quality standards. It's just a nice little skin for snapping some vendor pics. Maybe I'll mess around with it more and make a freebie.
  5. All right, I'll bite. I just tried a quick search on the beta. "red lipstick appliers" without the quotes around it. My brown lipsticks demo show up high in the results. The word "red" is nowhere in the description, features, title, or keywords. "Red" does not appear in ANY part of this product entry. BUT the product DID use the red lipstick product as a starting point using auto-fill. Same results in non-beta, though different placement in the results. Edit: I just visited my store homepage with "Relevance" selected in the dropdown... which is the default and I'm sure everyone is going to be using. What the... it's just random. And some of the listings on page one THEN appear again on page two, it seems to change constantly. ?!?! If there's rhyme or reason to the listing order here, I sure don't see it.

  7. Aargh. This is still happening. I didn't get email notices for several low-score reviews in the last few weeks, and this means I didn't get a chance to address the issues for my customers. (Please don't leave customer service notes in a review. IM us in-world instead. Apparently we'll never see your request/feedback.) Sorry to necro post but I needed to vent. As a Marketplace-only merchant, this is very frustrating to me. :matte-motes-angry:
  8. "merchants demand answers and the ability to plan. In terms of Mesh, LL isn't delivering that. So they're just kind of playing around, kicking the dirt. There are some nice mesh designes out there. But I think a lot of the creativity is being held back until we know for sure what mesh will lead to." From my perspective as a content creator, there's absolutely no point in learning and working with rigged mesh clothing in Second Life until there's a definitive answer about the Deformer. I don't want to waste time on multiple sizes if they'll become obsolete soon; I hate the idea of "standard sizes" and think they're far too small.
  9. I've written a short guide on shape proportions here : http://slfashiontutorials.com/tutorial-feminine-body-proportions-for-different-kinds-of-avatar-shapes/ that might be helpful when creating your own! Even if you buy a shape, make sure it's copy/mod permissions so you can tweak it to make it your own for different mesh clothes and skins.
  10. I'm already kind of working on something like this (ever since Avatars United disappeared)... PM me if you want to beta test it, though it won't have many users until it's public!
  11. I need a custom mesh for clothing created. I'm looking for someone who can produce a high quality, rigged clothing mesh full permissions for me to use in fashion design. If this is something you'd be able to do for me, please send me an email at AlaskaMetropolitan@gmail.com with photos of other meshes you've made for Second Life, and how much you'd charge for the custom work. (Note that I can also give you a percentage cut of the finished fashion piece, but I don't make a lot of sales so it's probably more lucrative for you to charge me a flat rate.) If I end up loving your work (and working with you!) I'm also interested in a long term partnership. Thanks!
  12. I put through a request on March 13th to cash out to my PayPal account. Now, the money is no longer in my Second Life account... but it's not in PayPal either, 1.5 weeks later. I phoned Billing Support, they told me to phone PayPal. I phoned PayPal, they told me there's no record anywhere in their system of the transaction. When I view "Process Credit History" in my account panel, I can see the transaction information, but the Status field is completely blank. Even viewing the page source, there's nothing there. I've double checked that I used the correct PayPal email. I started a support ticket to LL yesterday and the only response I've gotten was "What's the PayPal email you used?" which is... already listed in the support ticket. *facepalm* I'm starting to get worried. The money's GONE, it's not in my SL account, it's not in my PayPal... is it possible this process takes more than the 0-5 days claimed and it's still in transit? Or... did I just lose hundreds of dollars that I'm counting on for my real life bills and rent??

  14. *Shameless plug* I've got some eyebrow tattoo layers at my Marketplace store - because so many people had the double-eyebrow issue that Marianne mentions, I've got a sort of blank tintable mask thing you can try with it to help out. It DOES require fiddling, but the helper layer is free. Or you can find some brow-less skins out there, they do exist. I make those too! https://marketplace.secondlife.com/products/search?search[category_id]=&search[maturity_level]=GMA&search[keywords]=alaskametro+brows
  15. I've noticed it's a lot worse in the last 3 or 4 days... I used to hardly get any failed deliveries, now I'm getting at least one IM per day about them...
