  1. For anyone wondering, it looks like main server regions will only be restarted if they've been up for 10 days, since there was no RC roll last week. It would still be good to know if anything is being rolled to the RC regions this week.
  2. I wanted to buy a really cute top a few months ago, but didn't just because of the unhideable brand name in the center. It wasn't even like a real logo or anything, it was just in a font and looked like it took them 5 seconds to put over the texture. It's such a waste when low-effort, unhideable prominent branding ruins something nice for no real reason like that. The strangest part is they did take the time to make the text white on dark colors and black on light colors.
  3. Wow, you're right that "Sandbox Astutula" and "Sandbox Pristina" are premium only. I couldn't try "Sandbox Verenda" because it's offline. It seems like "Sandbox Exemplar" and "Sandbox - Weapons testing" are gone altogether. But Nick is right that "Sandbox Wanderton" is still good. Scripts are only "off" at the parcel level and not the region level, so you just need to be at least 50 meters above the land mesh (at least ~76 meters on Z).
  4. It's definitely hard to find a good sandbox there to test things, hopefully this helps: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Preview_Grid#Regions_on_Aditi
  5. That's correct, it would technically be possible to change anywhere, but mainland is controlled by the Linden governance team and the mainland region settings are almost never changed from the defaults.
  6. It means that the ranges for shout, say and whisper are getting turned into region settings like water level. Settings like that normally aren't changed from the default on mainland, but could be changed to custom values on any private region by an owner/manager. The ranges will probably stay at 100, 20 and 10 respectively on any mainland. It would allow any private region to not be consistent with the ranges in the rest of SL, so you would have to check what the ranges are every time you TP into a private region.
  7. That's why any new larger ranges need to be on a new separate option that can be turned off, instead of creating the ability to change the current ranges. It would be great to be able to turn off the shout and say range in the viewer as separate options too. We don't want estates to come up with their own ranges for everything. Instead there should be viewer options to hear within the current estate, region, parcel, shout, say and whisper ranges. New options for estate, region and parcel should also obey vertical limits according to the viewer settings, i.e. max vertical range should be sh
  8. You're right that the visibility in the viewer of who is in chat range, and what the chat ranges are, isn't going to be the issue. The issue will be having to check and memorize the local chat thresholds every time you enter a new region. That is what people will have to get into the habit of doing before anything else. It will be a nightmare to have that as a constant concern, and it will make people hesitant to communicate in local chat. I'm sure that's not the intention, so I hope you will reconsider making any of the chat ranges variable by region. It would also be good to know what p
  9. Making chat ranges for whisper, say and shout inconsistent across SL will only make things worse. People would not be able to trust local chat at all. It would be better to have new message range types for estate, parcel and region chat, and allow people to decide if they want to listen to any of those new three and choose which of the six ranges to send on by default. That way someone could send on estate, region or parcel, but if a listener has those off then it would still check if they were in shout, say, or whisper range.
  10. It depends if the name is directly in a message from the script, or if it's in the footer of an offline message. The script probably gets the account name when it's rezzed and keeps it without checking again. So in that case you could just rez a new vote box. If it's a message from Linden Lab saying "Sent by Old Name", that could take about a day or two to switch to the new name.
  11. It's good to see them trying. I recently had a friend request sent to me get dropped due to the cap and only found out about it from the offline e-mail. Group invites may also get capped and dropped. There's no way to accept either of those from the offline e-mails. The idea for group notices was to have it part of group settings and not from a script. Many of us have already posted our criticism of llTargetedEmail. But it's also good to see a new focus on using e-mail for messages, because communication is so important to the economy. Anything that can reduce reliance on the capped sto
  12. It's great if you have a way to edit others' objects and have no other way to contact them. It's a great way to be sent offline messages and notices, after the offline message and notice cap was reduced 40% from 25 to 15. For most groups, it would be great to have the option of notices only being sent to e-mail when not logged in for that particular group, in the same way there are options for receiving chat and notices for each group. If sending e-mails is better for the SL infrastructure than storing offline messages and notices for the next login, then this seems like a great first step.
  13. It's very strange because it's something I thought would be great for a long time, but it doesn't seem to be planned well at all. As a general concept, it's something we've needed for a long time to be able to reduce offline notices and IMs, but the implementation looks terrible and practically useless for most situations. Now that we're finally aware of the attempt to make something like this possible, I imagine that any feature request would be met with "we're not going to do _____ to make it actually worthwhile because we've painted ourselves into a corner with how we've already implement
  14. That's really interesting. It probably means that the new simulator support is to make it possible for real avatars to communicate with the mobile clients that are connected to some other service.
  15. When you use something completely non-graphical like METAbolt or pikkubot, the avatar is the same and indistinguishable from someone using a graphical viewer. The avatar is whatever it was the last time you logged out.
