    It is called tier because on mainland you pay a certain amount based on what tier of overall land you hold. You don't pay by the exact amount you hold but by where in the tiers of payments you fall 

    Of course you pay for the exact land you have.

  2. I just like the 1L idea....I like it hard. Because it dont show I want money, it shows I want you to pay. And it selects people very well. I can even pay you 1L back after you pay. Its exactly the same as let ORB kick out "no-payment info"  avatars. But I think its too extreme and I dont use it in my ORB-s. Because it shows on no payment in today. It dont show what people plan to do tomorrow. And maybe someone just join to SL.

    I would love to know which Linden came up with using the word "Tier" to mean paying land fees AKA rent. There isn't a single definition of tier that has to do with paying  for anything... Plain and simple, tier is rent paid to LL. No matter what they call it its still rent. You pay them USD for your land usage.. Thats rent. Stop nitpicking over semantics. 

    Tier is not rent, its tier. Its life itself. You buy life. You are robot and LL charges you. Rent is something that you pay aditionally. Robots dont pay, robots charged, otherwise they are dead.

    umm.. I think LL would beg to differ with you.. 1L is indeed money. It's not a lot of money but it does add up.. 

    Elite... You seem very stuck on this word. You have said that paying tier to LL makes you elite as well. Methinks you need to take a long look in the mirror and do some soul searching.. or find a professional with a comfy couch. Preferably one without a cigar. ;)


    I dont have soul.

    Except Tier in SL is rent and applies only to mainland, outside of that rent is rent(wich side-stepped the topic to begin with). But anyhow, Seana myself and others are right when we say there's just no way to do video so everyone can see as it was replaced by Media on a Prim(and has been like that for at least 8 years). Furthering the argument is beating a dead horse.


    Tier is not rent, its tier. I dont care outside mainland. Pivate estate is like prison, its not at all place to live. And yes, parcel media is not 100% sync, but its not very big problem at all. The most important is that all see the same video. Its much better than media on prim, where everyone sees its own video. There is no point because you can always close SL and watch video that only you see. But the problem is at all in other place. Parcel media in texture dont allow to control it, by clicking on texture and choose URL and other links. Also it dont allow to set fullscreen. Exactly for this you need to do special programming. Only then all those TV-s in market get some meaning and usability. I tell you how to do this. :  TV screen must have pieces on prims linked together, matrix, only for touching. Plus prim for whole screen, only for video. Now, when you click there, script knows to where you clicked. Script send this info to service provider server. This server then emulates click to according youtube website screen point, or any other website. Now website address changes. Then server sends info about changed webiste address to SL script. Script then changes parcel media URL. Also there are some aspects when website changes, but not URL. Example fullscreen. This is browser locally run code. Extra script code must then make screen prim bigger,  so it seems like fullscreen, altough its only in upper left corner.  Screen must be located in place where making it bigger dont be seen.

    Parcel audio is not synched. The streams that come through them usually are in sync because of how the internet radio stations are streamed, but often times I have been at a region and listening to one song either ahead of or behind people I am there with. Those sorts of things are all direct connections to those URLs, they have nothing to do with Second Life.

    I was in SL more than 10y and never seen this kind on async. All clubs, lives, parcel media is always synced. Or just my ear dont feel difference.

    If you want to charge people L$1 to visit your club/videotheque you're free to but if what your offering is worse than what other clubs in SL offer for free don't expect anyone to turn up. You really should offer more than some second rate radio station because anyone can have one playing from the comfort of their own houses & skyboxes

    I dont have competitions at all, because every little piece of me and my club is absolutely unique. When you visit it, then you are also elite, you automatically get status. In public dance places go not elite people, there go working class. They are mass productions. But my place is rather secret. You tell its location only to best friends, who are also the same elitists people as you. When you go in my place, then you are nr1, when not, then you dont exist.

    I go out dancing, in RL, every Wednesday night to a free dance club and it is one of the largest dance clubs in my area.  They only charge a cover on weekends and "Ladies' Night".


    Good luck with that.  Let us know how it works out for you.

    I dont go into such clubs in RL. And actually I had my club up already about 8y ago. And it was fine - I was able to dance as much as I wanted and even without 1 L. But then the ticket price was higher, dont remember. But now I put 1L. Im not interested about money or public, I just hate free stuff. And in SL I can do what I want.

    Just my opinion: a good entertaining DJ is a must in a club. Those are the places where I'll go.
    I see no reason at all to go to a club which just plays radio stations; I can listen them anywhere.

    You said: "...lazers, disco ball, strobos etc."
    Umm.., no thanks. In SL those are just annoying distractions to watch on monitor screen. (@_@)

    But good luck if you feel that your idea works. Please report back how it goes.

    I think we have different interests in whole SL and probably also in RL. Of course you have nothing to do in my club, its not for you. Its more for people with the same interests as I have.

    Sorry yes you are correct things like Shoutcast etc are not actually multicast. I stand corrected. Doesn't change the fact that there are no ways to do in SL what you are wanting to do with video. Sync'd video doesn't work. There are, too the best of my knowledge (i would love to be corrected) no video players that enable a video stream to be streamed to everyone in an area at the same time. You can define a playlist from something like youtube, but you cant play it out to everyone. 


    Good luck you your club though

    I dont understand. You want to say that parcel media isnt synced?

    Even the worst or less interacting DJ is still (in theory) better than using a radio station. You have zero control about what the radio station plays and you have commercial breaks or breaks of similar nature. And why on earth should people pay you, if you plan to be worse by default than all other venues?


    I like radio-stations. Personally I like witch house. And I like any music that is set 10x slower speed to play. No matter what is playing. Some witch house radio-station is enough. And advertisement dont also problem. I dont see difference from advertisement and somne resident talk. Do you see? And why people come? Because of me. Because Im so beautiful.

    of course it can be free... all good, and less good clubs in SL prove that. I'm not going to pay you for listening to a free radiostream while watching youtube .... IF you compare it to RL clubs, than also offer the quality RL clubs do.... LIVE DJ's, entertaining staff and great service.


    I dont like those clubs. And I wasnt sayed my club must be at all public. No, not at all public. It becomes very elite club only for selected. It becomes for yuppie role play club.

    It's not at all essential to have videos in clubs.  Most clubs don't have them.  Videos are laggy even with a top-end computer and fast broadband.

    The first rule of marketing in SL is that the biggest hurdle people have to overcome is the jump from L$ 0 to L$ 1 :D. People are very unlikely to pay to visit a club when all the rest are free.

    This is not problem at all - I dont use it for profit. I dont use it for money. 1L anyway is not money. I do it for principle.

    There are tonnes of poor quality and badly hosted clubs out there inworld. Yet you plan to offer a lower quality service (no DJ and just a radio station) whilst attempting to charge an entrance fee (i.e. higher cost than most all clubs on the grid). 

    I'll be interested to see if offering a poorer service at a higher cost works out. 

    P.S. Video displays would be cool so I suspect there's a technical, lag-related reason they aren't common? 

    No, actually I have previously buyed very expensive stuff. I mean lazers, disco ball, strobos etc. Those stuff was the most expensive at all that was found in marketplace. Example lazers are specifically sharp. Many times sharper than usual lasers I seen in SL, even better than in big clubs. ......And lag is not my topic. its LL sim servers topic. I cant replace them, altough I have myself (in real life) very expensive servers too.
