    How would I locate these strip clubs?

    Also bear in mind that to get in the Destination Guide a club owner has to actually fill out a form and write something about their club - a lot of new owners can't write decent notices (sorry - pass a saucer of milk) or even know that's how they get in the guide.

    Unable To Post Events? SL Errors?

    I filed a ticket and was asked to remove @ and & from the event title and description to see what happened. I did that and the description text had inverted comma's/quote marks which the editor code turns in to & and # so it failed It would seem that someone is trying to protect against SQL/PHP injection attacks via the events entry screen perhaps - FaceBook and Wordpress manage to protect against such attacks and allow punctuation and symbols - perhaps there's lag in the Labs web development team?

    Setting up a donation jar for an event

    Yeah - I understand all of that but I've done the same as I did last year after the event - asked to cash out to the Paypal account registered to my Second Life account, then I'll use that PayPal account to donate the JustGiving page we set up for the event.

    Setting up a donation jar for an event

    @Tari LandarThanks - I'm sort of on their side too - it's just the "we've changed things and by the way you should have done this but we're not telling folks..." attitude that seems implicit in their response so far. Since we started the fundraiser in 2015 - we've never been challenged to this degree, folks have been happy that we've shown the JustGiving page we've set up to receive the donation and screenies of that as we've made the final donation. I've submitted a support ticket (as suggested) elsewhere to ask for links to guidelines/knowledgebase/sign up form they can point me to.

    Setting up a donation jar for an event

    It would also seem that Linden Labs now expect some sort of notification or registration of fundraiser events (can anyone else confirm this?)... The venue I own has held a 3 day event in 2015, 2016 and this year with DJ's & performers giving us time so that we can collect donations for Great Ormond Street Hospital. In both 2015 and 2016 - we cashed out and donated via JustGiving without any issues but this year I've been asked to prove my identity (in spite of being a player since 2006 with a premium account in goodstanding and landholding) and now I'm being asked to prove that the event happened by providing blog posts, SL Events (for an event in July!) and it would seem that a FaceBook page for the event won't do... We were considering a small scale event in September because we had some folks on holiday or tech issues and couldn't perform but if the strictures/registration are going to be lengthy then we shan't bother or we'll just have a MOAP to the JustGiving page and hope that folks donate anyway. Has anyone come across a knowledgebase article or wiki dealing with this issue i.e. fundraising for a small charity? Unless the Lab's approach is codified then folks might be discouraged from holding small fundraisers if they can't get the L$ out easily to make a donation (in our case we're taking about L$200k so I dont have that sort of money in RL to make the donation and just use the L$ donated - I would feel VERY uneasy about doing that anway).

    DJ Board Display Not Working Properly

    Certainly the issue for me as a club owner is that SHX provides some nice options for controlling and distributing our streams that I haven't seen elsewhere (yet!) such as multiple remote controls from multiple parcels (our club is parcelled to allow different windlight & voice options on different sectors), sending of stream details to a different region, multiple DJ setups using notecards - some boards allow multiple DJ's via dialog boxes but it only takes one wrong button to make mistakes & reset everything. We do use these SHX options every week and we play work from new artists so having music/artists info on display for our guests is important to us. To be honest, the song rating integration devices, DJ schedule board/log in & tip jar login are SHX features I could do without and there are some features missing such as 'jukebox' station selection for VIP's (so they can chose a stream on some parcels when they visit and don't need land rights to swap), "most selected stream" stats, stream scheduling that allows creation of a schedule using legible/meaningful syntax on buttons or an NC that allows previously stored streams to be selected at certain times. Sorry this became a bit of a shopping list but it does show that SHX is used because of the control/expansion features they offer and so if Sai has disappeared never to update again, it will cause a deal of stress. A simple stream board with some bouncing EQ bars and song title just won't do for a lot of venues I'm afraid. I'm aware that there are scripters/creators reading here wondering whether it's worth extra effort - well yes, we'd certainly buy your products, we might even help fund development.

    Oz - just to say "Thank you" and the folks at the desks around you for your work on this - I'm sure you'll reach some resolution, your tenacity in trying to resolve this issue is impressive.

    Profession Sim Builder wanted

    Look up Blublaize in-world.... He's a darned good builder and does our theme plots and has also created themed sims for other folks. If you want to see his work - Search "Peacehaven" in-world on Shiga - that's his showcase piece. Tell him that Lyndka said to get in touch...

    That's gonna be kind of tough if they can't reach Sai from SHX and get him to do the needed changes

    Does anyone know if there's anything been heard from the SHX creator about this or will we just have to accept that this products will now no longer function as advertised?

    I can hear the screams across the grid... It's a scary thought and there's no one else with anything as good in the market (well not that I've seen so far) with the same functionality (without buying lots of smaller products)

    Land and group set up question

    It can be perplexing - basically you create a group that "owns" the land (you can deed land to this group from your own account) and then you make your club staff members of this group. Don't let anyone have rights in your group apart from owners to create new roles or assign roles - basically it means that only you the owner can change these options then and appoint managers (if you need them) and you can't be kicked from your own group. The clever part is in the group roles for that group - create a role for DJ's and or hosts and un-check everything you don't want them to do e.g. sell/abandon land, edit terrain, set land options and so on. Don't forget that if you want Events listed in SL Search - then those roles need "Allow Event Hosting on this land" (or something like that) to be checked as well. I take the view with my staff group to let them only have the minimum amount of rights to change stream, eject folks and so on - I can add other rights temporarily if needed. In your About Land > Options when you hover the land - uncheck every box in the top half half of the screen under 'Everyone' apart from Run scripts (this lets guests have their AO's work and dance HUD's) and you should be good to go.

    DJ Board Display Not Working Properly

    This is probably the "revert" feature in the SHX board kicking in - essentially if it loses contact with your stream for a period of seconds, it "assumes" the stream is down and switches back to a radio stream. The board Manager can turn this off via the Manager or Options menu and it can also be set off in the !settings card of the SHX so that it can resume through resets and so on.

    +1 for this - I tried a couple of smaller stream boards from other creators and they had the same issue - it's not confined to Saii and the SHX products as Qwalyphi said

    DJ Board Display Not Working Properly

    Yes - our main club is but I've just tried a separate SHX on my home parcel next door on Caemars Demise (which is running Second Life Server 17.05.05.326149) and after initially working - it now seems to be doing the same behaviour after I crossed from Caemars in to Leodegrance. Soi goodness knows what's happening I just rezzed a stream board on the Caemars Demise parcel and it now seems to be working as expected (which it didnt before) - my brain hurts now
