  1. In large coalesced object situations you will be contacted in-world post support case with a LM to Unpackistan. Happened to me recently.
  2. Just so you know, my security system allows me to set my range via prim corner markers. It is less obtrusive that way, it gives them chat and a blue menu and you can set the time of warning and set it to automatically boot it if they come back. I don't know if I'm allowed to say its name but I don't get commission lol, Triple Labs, I have the Grid Wide System which is overkill for most residents. There are domestic versions.
  3. Send me an IM when you get to Annapurna, I'll put the kettle on :-)
  4. Many people I have a lot of contact with in SL, I am in contact with outside of SL. But there are people who do just disappear with no message for a long time, some do eventually return and some don't. If it is not someone I am close to, I don't mourn their exit, I assume they are busy RL or their PC died (it can take a long time to save up for a new one).
  5. You sounded ok until you offered up Franks Jazz for a date venue (no offence Franks, not my cup of tea)
  6. I go by the Statistics Bar for monitoring dilation, FPS, how many scripted objects there are on the sim (active ones) and how many objects are on the sim. Where it is in the viewer depends on the viewer you use but you might you want to give it a go to see if its numbers differ. My view is that dilation drops several times a day if your place is open to the public, if they are only transient dips then it isn't really anything to worry about if you have a fair amount of traffic. My dilation briefly dips during a day, but it never stays down for long, and it can drop quite low too.

  8. The 6 I have aren't very laggy. I never liked breedables but Meeroos are just that little bit more sensible, and cute.
  9. I got my first meero today, Lulzy,and I don't do breedables. He lives in my outdoor club via my picks on my profile. I bought him from a friend. He likes visitors but I'm still figuring it all out.
  10. I would say it is true of my friends in SL. My biggest issue in SL I find is people lacking in integrity approaching me and trying to get them to understand my position, which is usually not at all complicated. It goes something like this... manners cost nothing, don't leave them at the login screen and don't lie to me. I'm having the manners issue with my new neighbour at the moment.
  11. Likewise, feel free to contact me in-world if you want some help. I would suggest joining some groups in areas you are interested in, you can search groups, try a few different combinations. The Destination Guide is a good explore point and events are too - They don't always have to be clubby ones, some are art exhibitions and book readings.
  12. If he is deceiving his wife he might deceive you next, old fashioned principle but in reality has a hint of truth.
  13. I sold my private region in the For Sale by Owner group in May 2009. A very useful group. I personally would recommend getting your feet wet on mainland first unless money is no object. Learn how to select good mainland, start small, and increase your land holdings gradually as parcels become available. It is true, you may never own the entire region if people never move on but in the current climate there is also a possibility you could own it one slice at a time. Solely relying on renters to pay tier is not enough of a business model, you need to offer *more* than what the others are offering and to know your target market. Depending where you live, VAT is payable on your monthly fees too. I have bought and sold a respectable amount of mainland in the last 4-years and even after owning a private region I can honestly say it is my preference.
  14. Live Chat is sleeping and I find support unsupportive these days. I'm on the local payment system beta which means I can't pay with Paypal anymore but have any international residents successfully cashed out via Paypal on this system? I need to cash out and I'm considering if I have to do it via Wire if Paypal is not working. Thanks for the answers, it appears that despite the local payment system beta, Paypal is an option for cash out - It is processing now, or appears to be,
  15. I keep my office on my fee free premium 512 sq m in Levkoy. It is a nice size and I have a tree and swing all at ground. I prefer being at ground level and always try to avoid sky, it just doesn't cut it for me, being at ground level is much more fun. I live within my 1/4 region in Trueblood so I am less pressured than most.
  16. Excellent guidance. And yes, I agree it is a ploy.
  17. I'm not averse to the idea but I would be scared they would break it. Unlike most posters here I do feel they could probably find the money, if they really wanted to. I had no use for Avatars United but I do use Twitter.
  18. I refuse to deed land anymore, most things I get around by purely setting land to a group but for media I use a radio, with the URLs programmed in and it either runs off an access list or is set to public access. I have people changing my stream several times a week and it works fine.
  19. Some of my items were recently delisted, I'm not entirely clear how to correct them and I am so irritated I can honestly say I may not bother to relist them. All this crock does is just make me think I'll delist everything because I truly cannot be bothered with it. I will think about it this weekend, I really do not need the aggravation.
  20. My recourse, is normally what you have done already, if I am buying something "big" or from someone who can be a bit "iffy", I buy it from the Marketplace. If notecards for support or any other reasonable contact is ignored I then review both the product and customer service (giving them 24-48 hrs notice usually to correct it prior to leaving the review). I shouldn't have to do it but it's life. Some people have idiotic store policies that forget we are customers and preach about how we should or should not make contact instead. If I have had no contact, I probably would not review until I was satisfied the person wasn't on holidays or something similar. Failing that, I guess there is no recourse really, other than the fact that one bad review can get around. I am sure we all know well known brands in-world we don't shop at anymore due to poor treatment, my friends don't either, then their friends don't, and so on until suddenly they are no longer flavour of the month and wonder why.
  21. I see a lot of desirable mainland, it just requires more innovation and inventiveness. And I used to own a private region so have experienced both types of land. When buying mainland you need to choose wisely and have a variety of options in terms of dealing with neighbours "taste" in architecture. However, my 512 sq m of mainland elsewhere (I own 1/4 region in Trueblood and 512 in Levkoy) has neighbours who are mostly sympathetic to the environment, except for minor annoyances further down the parcel chain. Mainland living is not for everyone, but I think it is great, I like the design challenges as any developer who likes a challenge would. Quality of land fluctuates hugely as does price.
  22. I think there are a variety of safer delivery methods, as already mentioned. I personally have received items from download sites without incident, but not the one mentioned and also via email. I would be happy to forward items to customers over email, or place them on a safe download site - there are many. This can all be avoided with a bit of research and careful planning on the sellers part.
