  1. The average female furry avatar with a mesh body, hair, fancy clothes and a bit of jewelry tends to be around 100k in my experience. Then up to some 120k if you really want to accessorise (guilty...). Humans without tails and muzzles are usually some 10-20k lower than that. All in all, though, if it hits numbers like 200k there's probably some very badly made items on you, like old hair.
  2. I have one, and only as a mechanical aid for stuff I need two characters for, like certain HUDs.
  3. Oh, it's not that, I am one of those folks with a really fast connection and computer. The SL servers actually can't serve the pages as fast as I load them, and I'm still not having any luck. But yes, it does seem like I'll be waiting I just wish they'd release a few more houses at once. My heart can't deal with this teasing of seeing a new home and it already being gone when I click the button.
  4. So, having been trying to claim a home, every new drop of them sells out in approximately three seconds, and that's not an exaggeration; I was refreshing every second, and claiming a home takes approximately two (mostly due to the site loading), and by that time they're fully sold out. Just to give you an idea of how fast you have to be to get one right now.
  5. Well, I saw the homes. I tried claiming one ten times, got an unknown error each time, and they were gone. Good. So not only is there a rush but the system outright fails regularly.
  6. They're actually releasing more homes? I've been checking for weeks and not seen any. How am I meant to know when they're available? Agh.
  7. Yes. Certain body dysmorphic stuff I'm working on resolving... SL is both like therapy and training.
  8. I liked the mentor program. But on the other mentioned topic, if the first thing I saw as a newbie on welcome island was a ton of ads I'd probably just quit. People in general are extremely sick of ads, as you can see from the rise of adblock and similar tools.
  9. The Body Parts folder has always kind of creeped me out. Mine's just a mess of heads, tails and hands. If I ever do start making skins in SL though, I'm definitely playing into the creep factor for the ads. "Do you want to look like this beautiful young woman? BUY HER SKIN!"
  10. When viewer 2 was released and they finally retired viewer 1, I quit playing SL for a long while given that the viewer was absolutely terrible. I've tried viewer 3 as well and it's not a significant improvement. It lacks features and the UI is downright offensive, especially to anyone who has studied graphic/UX design at any length. My very first advise to every newcomer is to get Firestorm (or literally any of the TPVs) because I know that if they're anything like me, they won't stick around if they think the default is the only option. It isn't elitism, it's me wanting them to have a better experience, and more often than not, they end up agreeing. If they actually like the default, there's plenty of others who can help. But if I were LL, updating the default viewer would be my #1 priority.
  11. I buy a lot of stuff and the only place I see new products being announced are in groups, in-world.
  12. The problem with the "LL is here to make money" being though that a lot of us basic users spend a ton of money on SL. We just have no reason to go premium specifically due to lack of meaningful perks. The new homes were a good try but most can't actually get one yet or I'd have done it. This is, in turn, a bad attempt to make it more appealing.
  13. And to say something more about that, reducing the groups for basic members might hurt creators in the end, and those are the lifeblood of SL. I'm not leaving my social groups. DJ groups, my event groups, old dead groups that I just have nostalgia for (and couldn't rejoin if left) or my land groups. The only ones I can ditch are the creator ones where my favorites advertise their new releases, so it'll be harder to keep track. I do hope that those group slots are really hardware-intensive and cutting them saves LL a lot of money (/s) because otherwise it's just a completely meaningless net loss that won't get anyone to go premium. The price hike? Well, inflation and all... I think that one's reasonable, but it should probably be accompanied by asking premium members what perks they actually want in exchange, rather than punishing basic users. There have been so many good suggestions for possible things that'd cost LL basically nothing.
  14. I suppose that makes sense, but hasn't this been in the works for months? Surely they could at least do more than 700(?) new homes in that time. I mean, maybe they can't. I don't know, I just wanted to express my unwanted opinion to the entire internet.
