  1. With ad blocker plus on chrome, right click the icon, pick options. Untick "Allow some non-intrusive advertising". This resolved all my problems blocking adverts on SecondLife.com domains.
  2. Immersive ... emotional ... ADULT AREA PLEASE !!!

It would be great if we adult residents with adult interests had an 18+ subforum to discuss adult topics. Agreed ... for the same reasons.

The Official SL forums will become sterile and any camaraderie that would have normally occurred outside of the negativity will be very difficult, if not impossible, to flourish in this new environment. In any event, please put down my vote for a much needed GD Subforum. Agreed.
  5. Most of the RP in SL are at least Mature .. Can we even mention or refer to a RP thats Mature or *shock* Adult ?

Same thinking from people who don't actually have anything to do witht he forums or the community it supports. Round and round and round .. Maybe were supposed to talk about Second LIfe on facebook or something...

There are already at least 3 conversations going on about where were all supposed to post non specific stuff. In the absence of a general pool, every sub forum becomes the general pool. The forums use as a resource is compramised and the only option is to moderate with a heavy hand to keep the sub forums on topic. You end up with threads being moved, threads being deleted and a whole mess of resentment that drives the people most useful to the community as a whole away from the community. The general chatter will never die down, the people who are very subject focused will just give up and find a better venue. The signal to noise ratio is what matters, no general discussion just added a lot of static everywhere else.
  8. In the absence of a place to just chew the fat, the fat is gonna get chewed everywhere in every sub forum scatter gun, it degrades the value of the sub forums as they end up full of junk threads, moderator thread moving / deleting drama a plenty and a whole mess of in fighting in sub forums that previosly were actually very much on topic and very much useful.
  9. The ommission of GD is no accident. It's a decision to try and focus the community into only talking about things that are positive and useful. But then you have no community chatter, you have no community.
  10. Where is General Discussion ? Where do newbies post asking for help ? Where do the non specific questions go ? Seriously, there needs to be a general catch or the off topic chatter will just flood every other topic and every other thread. You also loose a significant source of whats buzzing in the community 'right now', just because you have taken that community away doesn't mean there is no now longer a buzz. It's sill going to exist, it will just happen in places that you can not see, one more way to alienate your customers. "Don't talk about fight club" is not a good basis for policy !!
  11. Yeah, No General forum, linear .. It's better than the old system technically, but you just ripped the heart out of the community. It's alsmost as if you don't want us talking about Second Life or something.
  12. As a paying customer, I have nothing but hope in the future of LL right now. Good vibes are at an all time high, sure there are still work to do and some of it will be just as hard for us as is for the staffers, but you know what; Collectivly as a community we moaned our backsides off last year and it didnt help, we want a better lab, lets start by trying to be a better community so they will come get involved again. Invoking Chicken Little does nothing to help anyone. We're all emotionally invested in SL, very very very much so. I truely love this place, and while osme changes really have been crushing, others have made for a richer and more dynamic world, and the sooner we stop looking in the wrong end of the telescope and remeber why we all log in as much as we do the better. SL is one huge silver lining, HTML based profiles are basically a doodle in the corner that will undergo many revisions and if we can all work together they could be a very very welcome addition. I don't like this "bin it and go away" is not helpful. Make them faster and smaller is helpful.
  13. Damn, where is a button when you need one *runs like hell*
  14. There is one thing I'm noticing from a lot of the comments. "I don't use facebook" Perhaps that should read "I don't use facebook because I use Second Life" Why do I need a social networking website when I have a virtual world?
