    Pet Peeve #69
    Not knowing whether i should answer to this or not. Curiosity tells me i should ask you who's this referring to?

    It doesn't refer to anyone and wasn't intended to be answered. Its sole intent was to be amusing before it got too deep in here and the thread gets locked.

    to encourage total isolation from your neighbors

    Except for one thing. That isn't what SL is about. Those who want to be isolated, already are. Those who don't, aren't. That isn't going to change as long as people have a choice between mainland and private estates. If you start trying to force this kind of stuff on people... you think SL is a wasteland now. You haven't seen anything yet. Of course, if your end goal is SL and Sansar shutting down, well... keep on trucking, I guess.

    They're for people who want to put up walls or windowless buildings. If you want a private space, areas like that are built for it. Like a skybox, but at ground level and with more prims.

    That may be what they are for but that doesn't mean that is what people want. Obviously, what you want and what others want are completely different things. If people don't want to live on parcels like those, they aren't going to.  And there's nothing you or LL can do to force people into doing so. People always have the option to not own land or rent somewhere else that is more to their liking. Be that mainland or private estates. 

    The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one.

    Isolation Islands are real.

    Your own little square. All to yourself. You can put up security orbs, walls, and ban lines. No one will bother you ever again.

    If that's what you want, get off mainland and move to one of these. Several big landlords are in this business. This one is in Monet.

    I think it's pretty obvious why most of those parcels are empty. I wouldn't want to live there either. There is nothing appealing about those parcels.

    Policies I'd like for mainland:

    • No skyboxes. We need those CPU cycles down at ground level. Land ownership stops at 128m above ground level.
    • No high walls around parcels. If you want total isolation, go elsewhere.
    • Bellesaria-type ban line and security orb rules.

    LL should offer a free moving service - swap your parcel for one on an Isolation Island, where you can have skyboxes, walls, and ban lines. LL does a bulk move for your objects. You get to sell the old parcel, and LL deducts L$1/m^2 to pay for the new parcel. You get your isolation, you get some money, and someone else gets a parcel under the new policies.

    Just making that offer would start the cleanup of mainland.

    There's one problem with this. Most people aren't looking for isolation. They're looking for privacy. Major difference between the two things.

    I want to clarify what I said the other day. I am not special or deserve more than any other Premium member, I love what the Lindens are doing to improve our homes. the part that upset me is the small number released, there would have been less confusion and people upset if they had waited for a larger number of homes to be ready, I really didn't mean to add to the confusion or hatred that seems to be hovering here, I will wait till I can get a new home just like everyone else..

    They have good reason for not releasing in large batches. Server load and well... you've seen it here for yourself. Releases will be more frequent with smaller batches but spread out enough to reduce the load. 

    Patience and perseverance will get you your Linden Home.

    I don't know whether to take this seriously or as a sarcastic remark. It's hard to understand ones intent via text. If you do actually agree with me, I appreciate it. :)

    I do agree with you. It was not meant to be sarcastic at all. It was meant to be amusing.

  8. People are making the huge mistake of trying to lump more than 3 generations into one simply because some else decided to give generations a name. I do NOT belong to the same generation as my parents and my grandparents.

     

    And before anything happens, I was typing this post when Jagix posted so I didn't see it until AFTER I posted.

    I honestly don't know how people get away with this. I know this is a virtual world and stuff. But the end user, being me. The person behind the screen should have a say,  in what lists they are put in, and what subscriptions I'm a part of. Currently, I only subscribe to two companies in SL. However, this behaviour needs to stop. I don't want to know about your school, that offers classes. May I add, they were a Spanish SL school. I primarily speak English. I want to be able to choose what events and companies I subscribe to. Not buy an item, and automatically be put on a list, whether it be on MP or in world. I had it before, where I bought something on MP, and  I got the item all fine and dandy. A week or two later, I am getting spam from this store. Essentially there should be rules implemented, where these sneaky scripts. Shouldn't be allowed, subscribing to something, should be consent based. End of story. No one should be able to go to a sim, put your name on a list of random people they choose and put you in their subscribomatic thingy. There are a lot of dirty underhanded ways they do this, but LL should really put a stop to this.

    Everyone! Quick! Get under your desks, place your heads between your knees, cover your heads with your arms and kiss your butts goodbye! I agree with Hale! :o

  10. Periodically I will go through my Landmarks folder and delete the ones that are no longer valid. This means tping to each one to check it, which only takes a few seconds, because I'm not one to rely on Search to check. Sim might still be there but that parcel may not be what it once was and the only way to be absolutely sure is eyes on.

    I'm certain I am not the only one that does this so this explanation does account for some of it.

    Preferences/Network & Files/Directories/Conversation logs and transcript locations/Open will open the folder you want. Then open the sub-folder with the name of the avatar you were using when you were chatting. You should find the file of your chat there, named after the person you were chatting with.

    Ctrl+P to open the Preferences floater. I'm not sure if the files use the display name or the username, though.

    It uses the user name, not display. Never display.

    Anyone remember 3D glasses for the Cinemas. ? It was an 80s thing. Maybe 90s thing. I'm hazy.  But they were a flop too. If we are not prepared to wear even spectacles to game what chance was there ever of strapping googles on our heads for ... ahem ... 6 hours a day ?  Laughs !

    Not many years ago (2008/9) I worked for a company (XPAND Beaverton) assembling 3D glasses for theaters. I see they've finally made them available to the public.

    Those regulations apply everywhere - not just Mainland. The lack of a Covenant means there are no extra restrictions.

    Which is - again - the point.

    A point that is not all that hard to grasp. At all.

    Ah! *light bulb over head goes on*

    Now that I get what you are saying, how is not having a covenant on mainland yet having one on the Linden homes any different than the city's laws being being more restrictive than a smaller community's? Or city and state, state and federal. I see nothing wrong with having different sets of rules for different situations. Which is all LL has done with the Linden homes. They're a bit different situation from Mainland.
