  1. You might have missed the "The Home and Garden thread" because it's near the bottom of the page here in the General Discussion Forum, but that's where you should go for ideas. There are 22 pages of posts dealing with nothing but land and building ideas. A lot of them will be for parcels much bigger than your 1024 (even those will have good ideas), but a great many are for plots half the size of yours or smaller. Here's one about building and decorating a house on a lot of less than 400 m².


  2. Another option is to create your own superhero: this IS Second Life, after all. Quinn Morani once shared a story with me regarding something her daughter had said at the age of 7 or 8: she had decided everybody possessed a superpower of some kind and when queried decided Mommy's was 'reading'. Quinn even wondered aloud what her hero name would be. 

    I realized that could work in SL, so I asked @Argus Collingwood to make a costume (for which I probably paid about a tenth what it was worth) based on one of those names, 'The Battling Bookworm'. Quinn's birthday was not long before Halloween so it gave her a good excuse to wear it. She decided she needed a useful superhero accessory—the sidekick—so I had to come up with a role and outfit for myself. Doing all that is still one of my very favorite things ever from SL.

    The Battling Bookworm and her trusty sidekick, Stacks:

    ps: Maddy took this picture; she probably has a larger print. I must have resized mine somewhere along the line.

    Normally, I'd agree, but she already tested LL viewer and had her inventory there and also had cleared cache. In her post she also hinted that she didn't have the most current FS version.

    Clean install might be a last resort, but it's one that should fix the problem. And it's a fairly easy thing to do.


    She definitely isn't running the current version; in her OP she states it is 5.0.11. The current version is 5.1.7 (.55786). I would imagine Firestorm Support is not going to do much with something that far down-rev; they'll probably recommend what many here have: clean install of latest version. That way if she does still have issues at least they'll be working with current code.

  4. Skell's post landed while I was getting a picture. I'd meant to offer his Suggestion #2 (which is also addressed in the @Alyona Su quote that started this off). Find the 'Locked' button, and use it, anytime you're working at home.  I can't tell you how many times I've gotten busy unpacking and trying things only to get a little careless during cleanup, miss the shopping bag I'm aiming at there on the floor, and delete my entire house (less of course any unlinked pictures and the like) on the spot.

    If you use Firestorm the Locked button is right here:

  5. And listening to that,  with the Jordanaires in the background, reminded me of a very young Vil Kilmer in what I think is the best ever Elvis Presley sendup, from a sometimes hysterically funny movie called "Top Secret".

    Oh, I picked a fake! This is the soundtrack playing over a silenced and modded clip. It's better with the original screaming. If I can't find a better version you'll just have to see the movie (worth it).

    ETA #2: Found one :-).

    ETA #3: I  bet I'm not the only one who was reminded of @Rhonda Huntress at one point in there.

    Sansar IS a platform not a world. 

    But within that platform there are experiences and many of those are GAMES that appeal to STEAM folks. It is possible that in the future individual games made on the Sansar Platform could be on steam with a cost to play (that has always been the plan -- letting people monetize their games). Right now there are no games (that I know of as I don't play) that are robust enough to go out on their own. 

    So in effect, Sansar at present is a gateway to a mini-game collection == if you want to look at it like that.


    If my definition of 'world' and yours match (admittedly that's a big if) then your first sentence alone, to say nothing of the rest of the post, erases 99.9% of any interest in Sansar for me. I didn't come to SL because I thought it would be a 'world'; I had no idea what to expect. I've since learned, and am learning. SL, for me, IS a world. My interactions with its people, and above all the shared experiences we've had, fuel my fondness for the place.

    We all agree the logins are separate, so separate databases, which would require additional manpower and time to go through and "clean out" the forum accounts that were also in-world accounts that were cancelled. Unless there is a forum infraction serious enough to warrant it, I can't see LL removing forum accounts until a scheduled "clean up" if at all.

    If you don't want to post on the forums, take Maddy's advise in another thread and change your password to gibberish, log out and walk away. It's not a glitch or bug or anything.

    The Forum/Community even has its own login portal, different from all the others. The Feed, the Marketplace, and the 'Dashboard' all log in through some variant of:
