  1. 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 !!
  2. 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 be
  3. Damn, where is a button when you need one *runs like hell*
  4. 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?
  5. Hello. I like SL and all the exciting posabilities it provides. I started using Viewer 2.3 and had a good expereince with it. I upgraded to 2.4 and then 2.5 However, in 2.5, I am having major issues with the new profiles option. My system is a 1.8 Ghz solo core on XP with a good graphics card. It ran SL fine before, but these web profiles are very unreliable and slow. It can take as much as 30 seconds to a minute for a profile to come up. This is because after 20-30 seconds to see if it might load, it will often fail and then I have to stop it and refresh. I have an 8 Kbps internet co
  6. my MOTHER found my profile and called my CRYING HER EYES OUT because I have an SL dad, she thought I freaking ABANDONED HE https://my.secondlife.com/SoraKobayashi.Nightfire Really ... really really? Web profiles do not display picks when viewed outside of SL. Drama fail.
  7. The same goes with Viewer 2, but Linden Lab insists on this being the standard Viewer, and probably the mandatory one in a short time. Let me say this as clearly and succinctly as possible: Linden Lab has no plans to make any single viewer (2 or any other) mandatory. We don't have any plans to make any such plans. But you're planning on depreciating services that V1 depends on to remain functional, in effect forcing us to use V2 in some form. So while it's strictly true you are not going to enforce the official client over a TPV, you are enforcing a switch over to V2. So you can be as
  8. Yes, it's a royal mess. That's why so many of us wanted to get it done and over with at the same time as LL was already doing it for the Zindra disaster. We could have pretended it was like WoW's Cataclysm and made something good and long lasting out of a one-time hassle. But no, LL knows best. So now to make things safe and functional we have to go through that entire mess yet again (because those who knew best didn't have the foresight of a mole). The Zindra fiasco was intended to hide all the freaky adults, that's why they didnt seperate the other regions at the same time. Community f
  9. Yet another reason for staying away from viewer 2. Why do LL keep not fix the real problems - such as lag? They are fixing the lag that they can fix, but lag is such a huge boiler plate term for what amounts to many many many individual issues, and you can suffer from any number of them at any time. Thy will never be able to make the lag just vanish, but they can refine what they do to limit it as much as possible.
  10. Beyond all that, I think that moving profiles to the web is a great idea, I'm just disappointed by the execution so far. Having decent profiles on the web that show the same information as in world is a big plus, but what works on one medium doesn't work on the other. Same data displayed relevant to the context it is being used in please !
  11. I can haz web-baseage for teh inventory also, plz? Please don't tempt them, because it wont be in addition to in world inventory, it will be in place of, and that will suck the royal wazzoo.
  12. Also not really happy with the web based profiles. Load too slow. Oh? 4 seconds isn't bad at all considering... Concidering that is pushing 8 times slower that V1 (sim depending), V1 loads profiles pretty much bam, instant. no waiting at all. Web based are slower under the very best conditions, when your client is on a go slow because you're in the middle of a crowd at some IN-WORLD shindig .. result .. I wont read profiles, net result, I just lost profiles When it's faster to look up a profile by keeping a brower open and alt tabbing, it's not fit for purpose.
  13. Would now be a bad time to mention that the in SL web browser engine is dead dog slow, or should I have mentioned that when you guys switched to a browser engine based search interface (you know .. the one thats soooo popular and a key reason why we're all not using V2). You have hobbled my ability to use profiles in favor of something that makes for pretty screenshots. TL:DR - It's to slow and clunky, make FASTER.
  14. When people post about about some issue, they are not "a small percentage of the population" What they actually are is "a small percentage of the people who are exercised about the issue" The problem is the sheer volume created by the vocal minority, it can be impossible to tell exactly what youre supposed to be doing. As you point out two people arguing in a JIRA or the forums on the blog can be indictive of the silent majority. Two people have a cat fight here could well indicate an issue that splts the community, and as such is best just left to rot. What the lab needs is a way to filter
  15. I'll freely admit that my numbers may be way off, but the exact number is not so important. The point is that you're already getting very valuable feedback, and you might want to start listening. That is, those at LL who matter might want to start listening. I really wouldn't call blog comments and the forums a gold mine of anything, were just a very vocal minority, hell, some of the most vocal don't even log in to SL in the first place. All LL have to do is keep the lights on, keep the lag down, keep the kids out of Zindra and allow us all to get with creating our own magical bubbles to
