  1. What a great solution! I was worried that "Replace Current Outfit" wouldn't be available on the right click menu, but there it is. And THANK YOU for necroposting!
  2. Yes! That does work for me too, but only dragging the actual object over, and that creates a link in the Outfits folder. Dragging a link gives me the circle/slash "Oh no you don't" icon. And I can even drag an object from one folder to an Outfit folder in the same window and it works. Thank you for the fix. I did not know about that, but it does work. It seems more sophisticated than dragging and dropping too, and fixes object links all over the inventory (and every other?) folder. Very nice, thank you. Thank you for the link. I see other folks are having problems too.
  3. I love the Outfits folder in my Inventory. You can assemble the pieces of your avatar and the clothing and accessories it wears and add them all to a folder inside Outfits. Then right click the folder and select "Replace Current Outfit" and instantly your outfit changes. But recently I've been having some problems revising the contents of my Outfits folders. Usually when I receive an updated version of an attachment, I take off the old attachment and put on the new one. Then I go to the Current Outfit folder and copy the link to the new item. go to the correct folder inside Outfits and paste, and now my updated item will attach next time (assuming I remember to delete the link to the old one). But now, within the past few weeks, every time I try to paste an attachment link from Current Outfit to Outfits, I receive a message that says: One or more items can't be used inside "Outfits" And the link doesn't paste as it should. I haven't "Protected" the Outfits folder or changed anything that I know of, except for installing a new version of Firestorm. And I haven't found anyone else talking about this problem. Does anyone have an idea about what's going on here?
  4. The Linden Lab guidelines for filing an Abuse Report have stayed pretty much the same since around 2007, especially regarding which and how many residents should write reports. If there's a single particle emitter in an empty region, it may not be worth reporting. But if someone is griefing 20 residents in a sandbox, the Governance Team wants to receive 20 Abuse Reports...according to the guidelines. Regarding the original post, LL sends an email to the resident informing them that their account has been suspended, the amount of time of the suspension, and the reason. There's no way the resident will know who reported them or how many reports there were, unless the person who wrote the report brags about it. The Governance Team investigates every report, and they don't take action on hearsay, so chances are excellent that the people who were banned had violated the Terms of Service and that the ban was well deserved.
  5. This is the correct answer. Also, if you are wearing an AO, use a standing animation for your ground sit, so you will look like you're innocently waiting to be pushed around. If the griefer walks into you, they will be deflected.
  6. You should check that SLURL: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Theron/54/193/57 That goes to a parcel named "Zwaany & Sugars Home" where visitors are teleported home by a security orb.
  7. In this case, I beat it (in Google Chrome) by going to More Tools > Extensions, turning off the switch for LastPass, and then refreshing the page. I thought I found a way to make it stop and still leave it on, but it didn't work. The sneaky thing is that it doesn't put the little icon into the form field to clue you in that it's entering a password for you. So it's handy but it's also a pain.
  8. I found the answer to this, with the expert help of Linden Lab support. I use a password manager extension in Chrome called LastPass. Apparently LastPass thought that the open form field was waiting for a password, and since I had put "30" in that field before, it was putting "30" there for me as a default. As soon as I turned off LastPass and refreshed the page, the number in the form field defaulted to the normal $10.00: https://gyazo.com/10d8b606389782457e3912a92aa95a90 Thanks very much to Linden Lab for the hard work in pointing the way to the problem!
  9. Thank you, Lillith, that was the problem. I was using Google Chrome. When I logged in using Firefox, the default number was L$2500. I could change it to something else and the number would remain the same after I hit the "Place Order" button. I cleared all of the cookies from the secondlife.com website using the following instructions: Click Chrome menu on browser toolbar. Select Settings. Click Show advance settings. Click Content settings in Privacy section. In Cookies section, select the site that issued the cookie, then the cookie, and click Remove. Here's what the top part of that page looks like in Chrome: https://gyazo.com/703a4b37886673831923659a52bfd8f9 I had to log in again and acknowledge that the website uses cookies. Trying to buy L$ again resulted in the same behavior. It's more of an annoyance than a problem. Thanks again for your time.
  10. I wonder if anyone else has seen this. I spend US $30 every month to buy L$ to pay my tier. So this month I decided that since I have a fancy new mesh avatar, I would spend $50 so I can buy him some clothing. And I can't do it! I click on "Buy L$" on my dashboard page on secondlife.com. The Buy L$ page comes up, apparently remembering my last US $30 purchase. https://gyazo.com/d0fbb3686e0dec53492641c6b1af6a20 I enter "50" into the "US Dollars (US$)" field under "Instant Buy (Market Buy)," and the other fields update automatically. https://gyazo.com/b50752b6b38e346a6dd153c4a90133c0 Then when I click on the "Place Order" button under "Instant Buy (Market Buy)," the password entry dialog box pops up, but in the background I can see that the 50 has changed back to 30. https://gyazo.com/0b64fa8a095947adb3827f5d2f198c14 If I try to spend US $20 instead, that gets updated to $30 also. I don't see a setting anywhere that says "Make sure I buy no more or less than $30 at a time" on the web page, and my Lindex trading limit is a couple of thousand dollars. I also tried entering 50.00 instead of just 50, with the same results. So I'm stumped. Any ideas how I can fix this?
  11. It was fixed, for a while. I logged in and everything was working fine. Then it wasn't working fine, and they put up the error message again.
  12. Hey I made it online too. Firestorm Support English just sent another group notice.
  13. In the Firestorm Support group they were saying that their website is unavailable due to too many people trying to log in at once.
  14. LL has the "All Systems Operational" message up again: https://secondlife-status.statuspage.io/ We can just keep trying to log in until it works.
  15. http://e*****up.com/slstats/ Best website name ever! LOL EDIT - censored but still clickable.
  16. It looks like around 38,000-40,000 users is all it can handle right now. Any more than that and it's crasheroo time. The Firestorm Support folks are experiencing a blizzard of complaints.
  17. Your neighbor left building and scripts turned on at his parcel. He is not online and can't be contacted. The griefer dropped some very offensive objects on that parcel, and the particles and sounds from those objects are slowly drifting across your parcel, where you are trying to have a party with 20 of your friends. The Concierge tells you to write an Abuse Report, because it's griefing and you don't own the affected parcel, but it's Sunday night and there's no one available from Linden Lab to come and fix the problem. This happens frequently, and it is a source of great frustration to residents, many of whom have contacted us for help. We can do nothing but write multiple Abuse Reports and wait for Monday morning when the Lindens come back to the office. In this case, you and your friends will have to wait too.
  18. The potential for abuse exists in every facet of life. That is not a good reason to sit with folded hands and do nothing. And past performance is not always indicative of future results. Just because past LL volunteer groups caused problems does not mean that future volunteer groups will cause problems too. Adding more tasks to the Concierge's job description is not a solution. They are overloaded already, and griefer response is not their job. Second Life needs a new approach to this problem. The idea here is not to implement "vigilante justice." I am suggesting a pilot project to test the idea that Linden Lab can utilize trained volunteers to return griefer objects at all hours of the day and night. There would be no additional cost to the company, and the residents would be happier. That's a win/win situation. If the pilot project doesn't work, then we can push RESET and go back to where we are now. But I believe the idea is worth a try.
  19. There has been constant, unrelenting griefing recently where multiple Abuse Reports are written, but Linden Lab takes many hours to respond and remove the griefer objects. These objects often have extremely offensive photos of pornography, dead and mutilated bodies, and heart-wrenching animal abuse. Some people believe that Second Life would be a better place to visit if Linden Lab would give selected volunteer residents the ability to stop griefer attacks as they are occurring. There are organized, trained groups in Second Life whose members respond to these griefer attacks 24 hours a day and submit Abuse Reports to Linden Lab. Employees are expensive. Many companies and agencies are learning that working with volunteers provides equivalent service to that obtained from a paid employee at little or no cost. We have already created a framework for a pilot program to implement a volunteer Governance Team to respond to griefer attacks. Can we speak to someone in Linden Lab to discuss this idea?
  20. I didn't buy the H800 headset. It was hard to justify the cost when I already have a headset that works well. I tried pairing my Plantronics M50 headset with the PC, but it didn't work. After I read your message I did some Google searching. One person recommended an app on the Google Play Store called SoundWire, from GeorgieLabs. It streams audio from PC to phone, but the free version has a 3 to 4 second delay according to one reviewer. Other recommendations were to use Splashtop Remote, AirBubble - Airplay audio receiver, or Airfoil for Windows. Apparently, the free versions will only run for a few minutes and then you have to restart them. I have not used any of those yet. EDIT - Thanks for asking here. I had forgotten this thread, which is not good because technology marches on and people are always building new goodies.

Some of you should be ashamed of yourselves. Hi GreenLantern - please try to forgive and to see things from the other point of view ... Some of us care a lot about the welfare of SecondLife, and when someone is trying to act in the name of Linden Lab, it is not unfair to be a little sceptical, I think. I met officalnickiminaj in the Arapaima Adult Infohub the day she started this message thread. She was (surprise, surprise) asking in local chat if anyone needed help. We talked in IM for a while, and I have no doubt that she is really trying to help new residents. There are plenty of zero-day-old residents who come through there, and even though a fair number of them are griefers and trolls, there are some genuine newbies who would love it if someone would help them get started. I can't help but admire someone who makes an effort to assist others, expecting nothing in return. She's not asking for money or fame or power. She just wants to help. Imagine what Second Life would be like if we all did that. You TP into a region and see someone who's 2 days old. You send them an IM and say "Hi, welcome to Second Life. I see you are new here. Would you like some help getting started?" And then you post about it in the SL forums, and get called a bad person for writing your post in gray text. So no, I'm not going to forgive that kind of trolling, especially when the disrespectful posts come from people who don't know the OP in the first place.
  22. There's some fairly extreme disrespect and cruelty in this thread toward a new resident who just wants to help people. Some of you should be ashamed of yourselves.
