  1. My views on members of the LEA are only on those who were there when I was, I do not know how well or not any member did thereafter. Only you Chic can know whether it was an indulgence or not, I have not judged any individual who was there after I left. New committee members have to become involved in all aspects of art at a new LEA, there should not be any pick and choose, however, members that excel in various disciplines can of course take a leading role. If the committee have meetings and certain members start to frequent the meetings less and less, they should be replaced asap. Commu
  2. I was one of the original committee members of the LEA, I left after a year because quite frankly the main core of committee members with regards to the rules 'it' had set up, was incompatible. Most of the original members, imo, were itching to use the Linden granted land liberally for themselves, but 'it' surprisingly stated in 'its' rules, that no committee member should benefit from the LEA, i.e. no free use of land. So what happened instead was that committee members would come up with ideas that would include the need of creative input from themselves, i.e. a stage, a museum, a landing po
  3. I have been building in Second Life for a long time. When the prims are linked check the rotation boxes, you are likely to find that the prim has twisted, rather than moved, usually by a minor degree. When unlinked, it untwists, i.e. the rotation fields go back to 0.0, 90.0 or whatever they should be. The only solution I have found is that once the build is in it's final position, just unlink and everything will be dandy.
  4. OK re-SaveMe Oh, whilst I was a committee member she was banned a few times, by other committee members, not me, but it was I who spoke out in her defence, not that she needed me to do so, and I unbanned her at least twice, maybe 3 times. I think SaveMe Oh is an amazing artist, she understands what the mechanics of art should be in a virtual space, the only problem is that at this time, her art is extreme for the Second Life virtual environment. SaveMe Oh will just have to except that she is before her time, and that if she accepts her own greatness, she has to accept that being banned comes w
  5. Well now we know they are, bylaws have changed. But if you give me an example of decisions being made by a present committee member for their own agenda, then that would have to discussed and changes be made, so do you have an example?
  6. Thanks for clearing that up Chic Aeon. But I did say 'some', not 'all' have ownership, I didn't know how many.
  7. To reiterate, the sims are owned wholly by Linden Lab. Some committee members, not all, have ownership of the sims for the purpose of running those sims as caretakers. When a sim is given to an artist for their use, they are given ownership of that sim, just like renting a private space on any sim. There are no rewards for being a committee member, they give their time freely. You have to be committed too, there are certain days and times you have to be there to do the job, or make sure someone covers for you. Committee members are less likely to be offered a sim to have a
  8. I have just returned from a 6 year break from SL. I was an original committee member of the LEA, it came about through a discussion I had with M Linden about getting Linden Labs interested in the art world that was existing in Second Life, my original idea was different, Michael Linden and I believe Amanda Linden finalised the concept that became the Linden Endowment for the Arts. Initially requests were made for members to apply to be a committee member, thus I replied, I am a artist in RL and was in SL, I am also a studio manager for artists in RL, so I guessed my credentials were good enoug
  9. $1,000 x 30,000 is $30,000,000 and some of those sims have been sold more than once for $1,000, then there is the extras, sim name change, moving a sim to a new position etc, it all adds up to a mighty sum of dollars.

  11. maybe a more subtle use of linden in the display name? DolL IN DENmark
  12. I just want to add my welcome to SL.
  13. but I'd rather, like you, that they fixed the big things like antialiasing not working on Macs. Only five percent of home computer users use Macs. Mac users aren't a "big thing". Yeah but… I'm a Mac User, and I'm really important, and all those 5% use Second Life, and that's a lot of people. This isn't fact based at all.
  14. The above chnages makes me interested in trying viewer 2.x out now too.
