    Please, leave wolves out of metaphors (or whatever). They do not deserve the reputation Red Riding Hood gave them.

    So you are arrogant and conceited. That pretty much says it all. I've been a resident since 2004 and have known a Linden or two, one of whom I knew from Active Worlds prior to leaving AW and coming to SL.

    If you had read the thread, you'd know I did just that a few pages back. You can sit there and tell me I am wrong all you want. It's never going to make you right.

    That isn't your call. It's LL's decision and they made it several years ago. Your interpretation does not (and should not) make any difference or have any influence. There are many uses for bots. If you register a bot with the intent to use it a certain way and then later change that, it's still a bot, unless you change its status. Bots, in SL in particular, aren't intended to be used as a normal/personal account. When you use something outside of its original intent, in this case an unmanned account/avatar aka scripted agent being used as a normal account, you are misusing that something. Using a bot account as if it were a normal account or any other use outside of what LL approves, is misuse.

    It's right there on the wiki page. http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Inworld_policy_on_bots And then there is this at the bottom of the wiki page I've linked a few times now.

    What exactly does SL have over every other platform?

    Mine is ancient in SL terms.

    You'd be better off asking someone who uses RLV. I've never turned it on and don't see any need to do so.

    Simply using a bot/scripted agent as a "normal" account, like exploring the grid, chatting with friends, that sort of thing. Using it that way is not the intended usage. LL doesn't have to overlook the fact that people do do that, but they do. As long as you don't make a habit of it, you'd probably be fine. Probably. We're all human. Occasionally, we might forget (momentarily) what account we are on and IM someone. LL won't normally come down on you like a ton of bricks for that. That only happens when a Linden isn't really clear on what the policy is. Rarely does it happen because a Linden is being vindictive.

    I always wondered how those huge watermelons fit through such a small muzzle on those SL watermelon guns I used to play with. They were almost as much fun as the sprem guns.

    I thought you knew that already. Any account can be "registered as a bot", meaning, changed to scripted agent status. Just keep in mind that if you do change an account to agent status and you use the account for personal use, that can also result in "disciplinary action" for misuse. Two edged sword, there.

    While it may not currently be the most popular, Active Worlds is still a going concern after 23 years. For the same reason.

    Just for grins and giggles, here are the first bots I ever used online. http://www.imatowns.com/xelagot/xelagot_x1.html I loved me some xelagot bots.

    Kind/type makes no difference here. If you, the human being, doesn't do something to/with the HUD it will time out. If you were running a program that prevented the timeout and didn't require human interaction (other than launching/exiting the program/bot, of course), then I would agree. Simply put, a bot is a computer program that does not require human interaction* to function. *All bots require minimum human interaction in just launching/exiting the bot program. That isn't the type of interaction I am referring to. I'm referring to interaction during the course of the program running in order to keep the program running. All computer programs require some monitoring. They just don't always need someone doing anything to keep it running. I know I'm not doing a very good job of explaining this. Sorry. TBI can be a beeyotch at times.

    An excellent read.

    As per a convo I saw (can't remember when) those accounts are still considered bots and must be registered. From what I recall, you aren't supposed to use them as regular accounts once they are registered as bots. Not sure who to ask this of but perhaps @Patch Linden can get confirmation for us.

    Time out as in getting logged out for being idle too long? That isn't bot behavior. Your viewer will log you out for being afk too long if you don't change that setting. Does that make all accounts bots? No. LL's definition of bot is "avatars controlled by computer programs rather than people." If you're having to interact with a HUD to keep it from timing out, it is not being fully controlled by a program. Granted, it's a very thin line between what must be registered as a bot and what doesn't need to be. But it is pretty cut and dried as to what isn't allowed. When in doubt, ask LL. And always get confirmation in writing. ***** Someone was claiming that bots don't/can't violate LL policy for using too many resources on a sim/region: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Inworld_policy_on_bots
