  1. This is a good idea.
  2. Strictly speaking, I don't "need" a hug :matte-motes-wink: ... but an old man knows enough to takem where he can gitum.
  3. The disadvantage of setting land to group access only is that anyone who wanders near the edge of your property will see the ban lines, as will the people who own land adjacent. By banning just an individual, only the offending individual will see the ban lines eye sore. Security orbs are good, unless you are one that prefers to have a more open accessible property. As you say, however, it is a matter of preference. It is also a matter of circumstance. If uninvited visitors are a frequent problem, a security orb would be better I think.
  4. There should be a Size slider in the Edit Terrain tab. Just slide that to the far left.
  5. Another option, if you would rather not use the security scripts and if you only have this problem infrequently and with just a few people that are impolite, is to use your About Land access options to ban the individual.
  6. Ceera, I had a thought. Why not just bookmark your Profile and go directly to that (e.g. my "Profile" page is https://my.secondlife.com/om.piers, but my home page is https://my.secondlife.com/). Then you never have to see the Home page clutter again. As far as I can tell, the one and only purpose of the Home page is to hold the Feed clutter.
  7. I would say with emphasis, NO (unless I had a spare computer somewhere besides my main computer, so that I could download every new version to that, just to try it out). I switched to Firestorm after a surprise update (done automatically) gave me a version I could not even manage to log in with. At the time, I wasn't sure what version I had that worked and couldn't find the place to download an older version, and I needed to get inworld quick. If Firestorm hadn't been so great in the graphics, I probably would have at least tried one of the newer 2.x versions ... but with Firestorm, I saw shadows for the first time ... that made me stick with it.
  8. Whoops. No. I get the same error. I had remembered seeing the "IM" option but hadn't actually tried it.
  9. I do understand (and appreciate) the reasons for particular opinions of whether the feature has been well implemented, but I'm not sure I understand the very high levels of distress in some of the posts. For myself, normally when I go to my profile, it is inworld using the dialog box in Firestorm (switched a month or so ago, when new SL kept crashing). Keli is the only reason I looked at the my.secondlife.com version today. Although, I've: Turned off notifications, because they have proven to be a pain right out of the gate, with flooded email and capped messages in world, Set the Feed to Friends only to prevent random, inappropriate posts coming in, and Found the Home page full of stuff from the Feed I don't actually see any actual harm being done by the mere existence of the Feed on the Home page. The fact that "it's cluttered" does not constitute harm. With the notifications and privacy set correctly, the my.secondlife.com page will have no negative impact on me simply because I will rarely use it. I will say that the Default settings for notifications should all be disabled and security settings should all be set to No One, until the resident logs in and chooses to reconfigure. Then, allow residents to choose to enable notifications, and choose to reduce the security protection if it suits them. The one benefit I did learn about was the ability to request/accept friendship and IM from the my.secondlife.com profile page, and I can see myself using that from time to time. For those who are part of the modern social media craze, I can see the Feed being a great addition, provided that in the future I don't have to keep checking my profile on my.secondlife.com to figure out if some new change has compromised the settings I thought I had. EDIT: Sorry Ceera, meant to reply to the OP
  10. These are good points, even the items that strike me as personal opinion. Condensed into a builder's "Things to Consider" checklist, I would find it very useful. I am not at a professional level, and often the things I put together were started with one thought and then gradually finished through a winding series of other thoughts. I still have not managed to stick to a defined workflow yet. Using a checklist with reminders to evaluate building decisions like those discussed, I could refer to the checklist at the beginning and throughout the process. In fact, I think I'll put together something like that. For me, it is far past overdue. Does anybody else have pet peeves?
  11. Good news on that: you can disable all the notifications, both inworld and email.
  12. Accepted. So, now I have turned off the notifications as well. When I logged in to accept Keli's request, I found dozens of notifications from the forum topic posts and that my messages had been capped. So far, my first impressions are that I prefer the original function of profiles as used and configured inworld. Edited: to add a smile
  13. :matte-motes-big-grin: I don't spend much time looking at my profile. About the only thing I do nowadays is to add a pick, or to see what has changed when LL updates the profiles.  Looks like they are calling it "Feed" :matte-motes-wink: at the moment. What we'll ultimately be calling it in a few months time depends on whether it turns into a headache. Sounds like there are a few who already feel that way. Now that I am looking at it with some thought, I've actually changed the privacy setting to Friends for the Feed. While I welcome courteous, clean, PG posts from people like you, Keli, I do not have the time to moderate my Feed posts to moderate for inappropriate posts. As I have set it to Friends Only, I'll also point out that I would welcome you as a friend! :matte-motes-wink:
  14. Thanks Keli. Are you logged in to the SL website when trying to view my profile? It should be visable to anyone in SL according to the privacy settings.
  15. Found it. But my Privacy Settings are set to "Second Life" ... so should not be limited to friends.
  16. Okay now. Keli, where should I be going to find this profile? I clicked "My Settings" and I don't see a Feed option. Can you give a url?
  17. That is a good point. What if newcomer-support groups registered themselves as such. With 16,000 new sign ups per day wouldn't LL be able to auto sign-up equally between those groups? It seems like it would not be difficult to treat the groups equally.
  18. I don't know myself, but perhaps this thread might help: http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Technical/Second-Life-keeps-logging-me-out-I-m-also-a-white-cloud-What-s/qaq-p/824275
  19. Does this keep happening on the same region? Or have you tried loggin in to other locations?
  20. Arggggh: The inability of some to imagine walking in another's shoes The audacity of some who feel that their shoes are the only shoes that should be worn typos in scripts, my scripts, typos that go invisible when I am looking for them, neon when someone else does bifocals, guarantees some part of my world is out of focus. the parcel is always greener in the other sim, why? I'm prone to moving ... expensive rules that are made for the sake of making, rather than need somethin-for-nothin philosophy, destructive but apparently also attractive
  21. Well, having given it some more thought .. I play in SL. Keli, I must say m'lady, it is odd for this old feller to hear himself say "I play" ... but there it is.
