    Bolded: I think one reason people insist on IM's is because they want to have a log of what is said. That's been my experience because I've ask them to speak in local and that's the response I've gotten. For a business I can understand but if it's just chatting, I much prefer local chat unless I'm talking with my guy then I enjoy the private time together

    Doesn't make a bit of sense to me, since local can be logged. All chat in SL can be logged... local, shouted, whispered, IMs, group... all of it can be logged. I've been logging it all since 2005. And even then, logs can be faked very easily. Good thing LL logs everything so they can tell when someone has altered or completely faked a chat log. Timestamps just makes it easier and quicker for them to find the pertinent logs.

    Or “this place is dead”, or “full of bots”, or “how boring!”, or... yeah. I actively refrain from engaging all the whiners who basically expect the rest of SL to be there for the sole purpose of entertainment, and on keen watch to start talking—no matter what about—the very second they arrive... lest we disappoint them!

    (Funnily enough, a lot of them remain exactly as silent and as unwilling to start a conversation themselves, and only usually drop a disparaging comment right before a ragequit).

    If I'm right, and there has been a sea change in how we socialize (generally) in SL, does that reflect a shift in how we do so in RL? Or merely a shift in the social function of SL?

    The shift in RL happened before the one in SL. SL reflects the changes in RL after the fact

    When SL was the "new frontier", most residents used local before ever jumping into IMs. IMs were reserved for things that you didn't want just anyone over hearing. Gossip, intimacy... all those things that call for privacy. Hence the original term of Private Messages (PMs, not to be confused with PMS). 

    For me, that has not changed, nor will it. If you approach me in IMs for the first time, I am going to assume you want to say things you don't want other people hearing, which immediately sets off my red flags and I will shut you down in a heartbeat and likely not very kindly. I'm a rape survivor. Deal with it or stay away from me is how I feel about it. What I want and need are friends. The close kind, not the sex buddy kind. The friends that are so close they "might as well be family" friends. The ones who are there for you no matter what. The sort that don't just take his word that it's ok with me if you hop in the sack with him. Then there are the ones who accept you as you are...

    Been looking for those kinds of friends for 60 years. Haven't found any yet. I don't think they exist any more, for me.

    Deleted the folders, AND emptied the trash?

    If on a windows machine - frequently open up the start menu and type in 'disk' - then open the app that pops in called 'Disk Cleanup' - it will find other things that need to be dealt with. I just got back '612mb' on my C drive that "is only used to hold Windows itself and not apps" running that... so... it ain't only holding what I told it to only hold... :P

    I then got 27gb back on my D drive that holds apps and apparently... a LOT of clutter...


    And when you are done running cleanup, time to run defrag.

    So I downloaded SL. it took up a few Gbs. Later I uninstalled it, but was still left with 4 less GBs then i originally had. any idea as to what's going on?

    Chat logs. Settings.

    On the other hand, there's no way SL would take up that many GBs. FS viewer takes up only 400 MBs and it has way more bells and whistles than the LL viewer.

    Maybe tone down the pron dialers a bit. ^_^

    If the machine itself was a laptop....  MAC ban is still on the table. 

    You have a point. Another one would be account bans. Like how LL can suspend/ban people from the forum but not SL itself and vice versa. They don't do that by IP or MAC. That is done on a per account basis and if you have more than one, LL will know. If you do something that really ticks LL off they can pick and choose what accounts to ban. Usually it's either the one you (general) messed up on or all. Every now and then LL misses getting all of the accounts but usually the person gives themselves away and "poof", gone again. magic.gif.5a2fd24309d0d8f540b4ff00370cb323.gif

    I'm not sure how these people are going about stripping our clothes off (on their viewer; we appear normal elsewhere).

    In FS you can derender mesh clothing. They are attachments, after all. It's why I always use either the underwear applier that comes with the Lara body or I alpha certain body parts out. Sometimes it's just easier to alpha out most of the body, if not all, depending on what you are wearing.

    @Whirly Fizzle is a guru, tho.  Nothing gets past her.

    Yes, she is, but, even she will tell you she doesn't know everything there is to know about SL. That's one reason why the support team does have some direct communication with the devs. Who in turn have some direct communication with LL devs. So, questions can usually be answered, just not always quickly.

    The fun part is when you ask a question and not even the Lindens know the answer.

    If you go digging around in the names listed as part of the team (both past and present) in the FS viewer, you'll see my name listed. I worked with Whirlz for more than 5 years. Poor thing. I probably drove her nuts with my questions and rock diving. :D

    /me dives back under her rock, leaving a cuppa behind for Whirlz.

    Moe...really?  I mean, if I am logging in my main and my alts from my home PC, they're all using the same public IP, aren't they?  So wouldn't either type of ban (IP or MAC address hardware ban) affect all of one's accounts?

    Darkhand...you're lucky it was just for 30 days.  Never give the finger to the Gods, unless you want divine retribution.

    Except he tried logging in from a neighbor's who would not have the same IP. 

    These were account bans, not IP or MAC address.

    its a glitch or bug  what ever you want to call it and had happened to me , I was told log out then  when you  log back in  walk around your home to see if the same thing happens , If it does  put on your original avi   the one you started second life in    walk  around the inside of your home again ,,, if all is well its something from the outfit  or hair or body part  on the avi  ,,, for me it was hair ,,,, i just had to rez  new one ,,sometines the scripts in clothes hair  shoes get weird  ,,,, it no matter what you try if  it still happens file  support ticket or support chat ,,,, hope all goes well ,,,, hugs   note i went item  by item as i redressed my avi ,,, the skin first ,,, take the walk   and as i tiem by item redressed her  when i put on the hair   bingo  ,,,, so i went to inventory got that hair rezed a new one and all ok ,,,,, it also happened with shoes ,,,,  

    I think you are talking about bake fails which are not the same thing as rubberbanding. Bake fail fixes won't work for rubberbanding. There's no connection between the two.

    If SL dies, somebody will just Necro it back again, and you'll get the usual screamers about necro-gaming versus it's not a game versus it's dead Dave versus no it isn't it's just tired out after a long squawk.


    You left out, "It's dead, Jim."

    Ya'll don't seem to understand what's happening. This isn't a lag issue. I've had it happen when I'm one of about 3 avis on a sim. I can be walking along without any problem and suddenly get sucked (moved, snapped like i'm on a rubber band) to a particular spot that is the same every time it happens no matter where i am when it starts. once i'm there I can still control my avi (turn left and right, sit, stand etc) but i cannot leave from the spot i've been drawn to. like i'm surrounded by an invisible wall.


    Sounds a good bit like the age old problem us ancient oldbies called rubberbanding back in the day. Rubberbanding is caused by lag. The lag may not necessarily be on your end.

    Does it happen when you are on a different viewer then your usual? 

    In order to eliminate as many lag possibilites as... well... possible, give these things a try https://wiki.firestormviewer.org/fs_lag_troubleshooting

    And if nothing on that pages helps, then you can look at other possibilities. That's how troubleshooting works. Process of elimination. Eliminate the obvious first.

    Well yes I'm sure nurture plays a part too, but I was nurtured in music as well as art, and that was a massive flop.

    What matters is, you are not a flop. You are a talented person. Work with what you have, build on it and you'll be amazed at what you can achieve. 

    You'll soon be getting something you can tinker with. I'm working on getting it boxed right now. Don't worry about breaking anything. In fact, I want you to break it!  You'll understand when you read the notecard.

    I guess we all optimize differently.  My DD is set to 200 and avatar complexity is about 120K.  If my CPU fan ever kicks into a higher speed I drop the Draw Distance down to 100 and it cools right down. 

    Note that my graphics card is not a high end gaming card.

    ASUS M51BC Series
    Windows 10 Home 64bit
    AMD FX(tm)-8300 Eight-Core Processor, 3.3 GHz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
    RAM 24 GB
    ASUS GeForce GTX 1050 OC 2GB





    I keep my av complexity well below 100k. Usually under 50k.
