  1. I routinely use CG Textures as a source. They have now banned the use of any of their textures in SL. The reason? Changes to SL's Terms of Service. http://www.cgtextures.com/content.php?action=secondlife_licensechange Here's the particular section of the SL's ToS: " 2.3 You grant Linden Lab certain licenses to your User Content. You retain any and all Intellectual Property Rights you already hold under applicable law in Content you upload, publish, and submit to or through the Servers, Websites, and other areas of the Service, subject to the rights, licenses, and other terms of this Agreement, including any underlying rights of other users or Linden Lab in Content that you may use or modify.

The portions in bold I have hihglighted for emphasis. In short, these terms give LL FULL copyrights to your work without any obligation to compensate you and without any restrictions you might want. They don't even have to acknowledge that you created it. That unique mesh object you just spent 3 months working on for your personal use in SL? LL can use it any way they want, including selling it, as they please. That pack of textures you created over the past year for exclusive sale in SL? Yep, LL can use it any way they want. And there is nothing that you can do about it.

  3. And what about those content creators who have consistently created great things for us yet don't own land? Land is nothing without content to fill it. Content is nothing without land to show it on. Your idea introuduces a "better than thou" mechanism for landowners.
  4. I've used DCS2, Osiris/RPCS and BNWCS (Brave New World Combat System). DCS2 seems to be the most popular, but I prefer the Osiris system as it includes nonCombat actions as well. Nothing wrong with BNWCS, just that RL interfered before I could explore it more.
  5. I've disabled all the camera constraints and so I simply zoom inside the surrounding prim to select the one inside it.

If Impudence has it then I will go back to using Imprudence. Yes, Phoenix has the media filter in place. I was running around SL a bit yesterday. Still seems to be the same Phoenix otherwise.
  7. Not sure which forum a discussion of TPVs should be in, so feel free to move this. Both Phoenix and Imprudence have released new versions of their viewers. Imprudence's is their latest experimental and Phoenix's is their lates beta. I've been using the new Imprudence experimental since yesterday. They've fixed the media and music bugs. I was using it yesterday, TPing, Searching, grid hopping, building and such. Worse problem I found was having to re-enter the key words after closign and re-opening Search. I haven't tried Phoenix yet, but they've included a new media filter. Phoenix here: http://www.phoenixviewer.com/ Imprudence here: http://blog.kokuaviewer.org/ Those links will take you to the pages that detail the changes made.

It likely needed the log out, and I ahd logged out from both the forums and from the Dashboard, and it could be that you need to actually close your browser, but, so far, it seems to be working. Aye Henry - but that doesn't help the new people who pop in to thave a look at what's going on in the forum and are met with a blanket of spam. Or indeed people who don't know how to use ignore functions - which I find are pretty erratic anyway. Let's hope LL get their heads around it soon. Agreed. So, what I will do is continue to describe what I did to get Ignore to work with the intent of getting that info to the new people. That should also help to get LL to wake up and make sure it is reliable. And we should push for some things to be stickied, and not just the Ignore function, but also sorting, rank defintiions and such.

  10. Well, I'm on SL time and I haven't seen any of the spam. I did put the nxfgrnmhrd (whatever) on ignore last week and I've not seen a single spam thread since. And I always set my display to View All when I first log in. I looked 5 pages in. Nothing. None of the scam spam.

Find me in-world for specifics or check out the bulk package here on the marketplace: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/First-Class-Developer-Pack-Advanced-Creature-Code/1917547 For a free version, try: integer random=5;//swim timer//global vectors - wanders within these pointslist points = [<84,61,50>,<83,62,50>,<82,63,50>,<81,64,50>];swim(){ vector swimpoint=llList2Vector(points,(integer)llFrand(llGetListLength(points))); llLookAt(swimpoint,0.6,4.7); llSleep(1.2); llMoveToTarget(swimpoint,8.0); llSetTimerEvent(llFrand(random));}default{state_entry(){llSetStatus(STATUS_PHYSICS,TRUE);swim();}timer(){swim();}} Would setting a range for random coordinates also work for the waypoints? Using the coordinates you have listed, x= a random number between 80 and 85, y= a random numer between 60 and 65, z= a random number between 5 and 19 (that's to keep teh fish underwater ) Then, as the fish reaches a generated waypoint, a new set of coordinates are generated. I'm not a scritper, but it should go something like; get the rezzed position; start loop x = random number y = random number z = random number waypoint = (x,y,z) travel to waypoint go back to start loop
  13. As for the Ignore function: When I first saw the spam back, I used the Ignore function. It didn't seem to work. However, a few minutes later I logged out to go deal with something. I returned about a half an hour later and all the spam threads were gone from my display. I haven't seen that L$ scammer spam since. As for the reasoning that limiting threads is needed to deal with the spam, why should we all suffer a limits and restrictions to our discussions when it is Linden Lab's responsibility to put in proper blocks and filters? I know one thing that may help. Some forums will hold your posts 24 hours until you fill out a profile. How many spammers will bother with that? It doesn't have to be much and each bit of information can be set to be displayed or not, but it would take a human to check each box.
  14. Why limit the number of threads a person can start? We now have an Ignore function. If you think someone is starting threads for the purpose of playing a ranking game, just click on their name and add them to your Ignore list. Then you won't see their threads/posts and nobody gets unfairly limited. Yes, unfairly. Some people do have legitimate issues and topics they want to discuss and some have more than 2 of those in a day. Yes, there are other threads about this, but they all go on and on about quality postings and rank and "cleaning up the forums" and other crud. I started this one to point out the Ignore function.
  15. Does anybody if its possible to apply this to the main forum display page of all the threads and topics? It works fine on a forum by forum basis, but I'd like to sort the whole list by most recent post.
