    I know this may be true for some stores. But I know it is not for all of us. The few bloggers I have asked to blog for me, were chosen for their creativity. period. I don't have any sort of rules for those that blog for me either. I only ask that they blog what inspires them, and that they post it to my Store's Flickr....so .....OK, I have 2 rules I only felt the need to point this out, because I always cringe when I see groups of people painted with a broad brush. So...just a friendly nudge, a reminder...that both bloggers and designers are not all the same

    Honestly, I don't see how people have time for so much social media lol. I have RL work, my SL work, I have some SL group obligations and I keep up with flickr. Oh and I occasionally post in here Anymore than that would be madness for me lol. I don't even have a facebook Never have had one... and I am not planning on having one.

    I made a Plurk account a long while back, but I never could really get into it. I think it would probably be a great place for marketing....well way back when, I am not real sure about now. But , yea... just wasn't my thing I guess.

    Yes to what Skell said , 100%. Also... we can post direct links to inworld locations , so those on their PCs can click and have the option to teleport right away. Another things, is that the flickr SL community has a been around for many years, we have built it up to the powerhouse it is now. Why move away from it , if we don't have to. It works well for a lot of us

  7. I am not going to presume that I know a whole lot about what this or that 'new generation' wants. But, from what I have observed in many groups...is this. A new person ask a question about how they can get into creating in SL. Right away they get very negative answers, like .... 'google' , or 'if you cannot mesh, not worth your time'.... 'find a group that cares, this group is for (insert name brand here).' Eventually, much better answers come up....like telling them about Builder's Brewery , the forums and informative tutorials. My point is, I do see quite a lot who are interested in creating in SL. Those that have tenacity and a thick skin, stick around and figure it out, but entry into that world is messy and many don't care to make it any easier.
  8. It was "naughty" for me because it was a rule I broke. I was not allowed to go w/out permission and w/out an adult. It was just one example of rule breaking at a young age. Insert w/e experience you want there. I don't know any perfect children that did not/do not break a few rules on their way to adulthood. That was my point. If you were the perfect 8 year old, then kudos to you and your parents
  9. I take it , you never did anything just a tad bit naughty when you were 8? I know I did. I walked to the store with my best friend, no adults, no permission...at 8 years old. Mom was not happy, I got grounded for a bit....and life went on. But it did not mean that by the time I was 20, I was still not allowed to go to the store on my own And that is just one thing I did ... I did plenty of boundary pushing. He is not the first , I am sure. As for being 'world weary'..... maybe that is a stretch, but ...so? A lot of residents are now explaining how things are. No harm done. Much worse goes on in SL and in RL.
  10. Most that use the Caspervend system have it connected to their Marketplace, so I can tell you when, how, what and where from MP as well. So, really... just from the total numbers from Caspervend, you could make a good estimation for all around sales.
  11. I have no idea, but... it would be very interesting to know those stats. I think a big enough portion of stores use that system, that the numbers would be fairly representative of how SL shops as a whole.
  12. I can tell you precisely what mine are, thanks to the handy dandy Caspervend 50% of my sales come from inworld, and that is (give or take a tad) the same, every single month. Also, I too..... do the majority of my shopping inworld.

    You cannot remove scripts from no MOD items. You can use the 'Remove ALL Body Scripts' button on the Maitreya HUD....that will remove them from your body, leaving it essentially frozen in it's current state. ALWAYS make a copy of your body, hands and feet before you use the button of DOOM! Again... doing this will freeze them, the HUD will no longer work....on that copy of the body, hands and feet. Incidentally, that button of DOOOM! is another culprit of the "Help! my Maitreya HUD is broken!". Also, no amount of relogging will fix that one either
  14. I personally have not had this happen....I have accidentally deleted stuff for sure, but I just fish it out of my trash. But, I did have a friend went on an inventory cleaning spree, a couple of days later she could not find her entire shoe folder. Turns out she did accidentally delete it, but she did not check her trash before dumping it entirely. Yikes ! I have always needed to use the redelivery system for items that did not actually deliver to me in the first place. This happens fairly often, especially when shopping at a very busy event. So far, every store Ive had that happen with had a redelivery system in place. I personally have not run into one that does not, at least..not yet.

    I just want to add a bit here. One of the reasons we recommend troubleshooting , is that often the problem cannot be solved with a relog. So better to fix the actual problem. I cannot tell you how many times a HUD problem has been caused by another HUD's transparent area covering up bits of the Maitreya HUD. No amount of relogging is going to fix that. So, yes we prefer to find the actual problem. And sometimes, the fix is a relog. That is just not the first thing I tell someone to do. Just like the days of..."Clear your cache" for every single problem you run into...."Relog" has become the new "Clear your cache"
