  1. I'm not seeing the fun or the facts. ProTipā„¢: If you are currently happy with your YT algorithm, have an academic level of education, and generally agree with my statements - play this video in a private browser window - and voila your YT algorithm won't get polluted with alt-right and low-brow channel suggestions after clicking through vapor video links! šŸ˜˜
  2. It's a shame that this thread wasn't used for its purpose, which was to post pics of your avi with the hash-tag generator at https://climateemergencyeu.org/#pbgen But I came to understand that most people didn't read the original post, or let alone the open letter. More important it seems to be to press the agenda of the nuclear energy lobby. You should be proud of yourself. The nuclear power lobby thanks you. Let's talk frank, shall we not. I mean, why give up all of these important modern conveniences, when we can fix everything so very easily. Need more powah f
  3. I can't follow that logic. I'm sorry you feel that way. Part of the signature form encourages people to state which group or organization they are a part of. It was meaningful to mention my groups, as they are for the purpose of activism and part of our autonomous social center in Arcadia. The purpose of this thread was for Second Life residents to become aware of the open letter, and to have some fun posting their pics. Please lets not let the thread go to waste by having a petty argument. It will only drive people away, and I see no reason why this would be meaningful at
  4. This thread is for what I state it is about in the original post. I'm mentioning my groups because through these I can reach many people. At the time of this writing I can hope to reach 118,885 people in summa. I'm not trying to sell anything, and there is no hidden agenda. That can easily be back tracked online where you will find that I'm using my social media accounts for activism and non-profit causes, such as BLM, Climate Strike, or the Artist Relief Event. I also think that some brands are participating in some activism because they hope to make more sales, and while
  5. Activists, scientists and people from all walks of life (and second life) are currently signing an open letter to the EU and global leaders. In a nutshell this letter demands that the climate crisis is actually treated just as that: A real crisis. I've encourage members of my group Fire Flower and Fire Flower Deluxe (on Discord) to read the letter and to consider signing it! At the bottom of the letter you can generate a profile picture: https://climateemergencyeu.org/#pbgen I thought it would be nice if you made a profile pic of your SL avi and posted it in this thread?
  6. Hey, please contact me in-world, there seem to be a whole bunch of BeautifulXu? My name is Wendy Starfall: https://my.secondlife.com/wendy.starfall
  7. Hey everybody! I'm starting a project where everyone can acquire, create, share and remix EEP assets. The project is called Forever Free Skies and it's happening in Arcadia. Here is some key information: All assets created for Forever Free Skies will be licensed under CC BY-NC-SA 4.0. We will carve out a piece of land in Arcadia where EEP assets can be shared and tested. Participation is free, there will be no cost, no catch, and no hidden agenda to monetize things. To participate, please send me a message in-world, and you will be invited to Forever Free S
  8. Oh, no! Maybe you still have them in the Marketplace Listings window in your SL viewer. I use the Firestorm viewer and it has 4 tabs called All / Listed / Unlisted / Unassociated, maybe it's in one of these. I think the keyword spam flagging happens when you use very generic keyboards, and that's bad for the search. I've looked at your Marketplace and you have a "coffee table" there, which already is coveredin the description, but you still use "coffee" and "table" as keywords - you don't need that! You also seem to repeat the keywords in the Features, although it is alread
  9. Hey friends! I will be holding an event in support of SL based artists. Until May 13, 2020 creatives can sell one of their products at my sim free of charge. The important infos: doesn't cost anything to participate happens in one of SL's most popular sims you keep 100% of what you earn during the event you don't have to create something new or exclusive Everything is explained in detail at https://wendystarfall.com/event. The event will open once a few creators signed up for it. Stay safe!
  10. I'm sorry, but that's not possible, as you only receive the text once. You have already received it. šŸ¤·ā€ā™€ļø You can look at the privacy policy that explains news and how to disable them: https://www.opencollar.at/privacy.html No, I don't send it everytime. I send it one time. I'm not sure why my news system is all of a sudden such an issue, I've been having that in place since the OpenCollar 3.9 API era in 2013, and used it many times for things that were not related to the collar but to my community. Not everyone is running an ice cold business where everything
  11. You cannot know something that you can only guess. We are obviously both professionals, and we have different opinions. That's okay, but assuming that you actually knew things without any insight, data, source code, or model, is not how we do it.
  12. In fact, I have been getting quite a lot of support since I posted the topic. Signatures are going up and people are discussing things and having fun. This forum topic isn't the alpha and omega of the petition, or its underlying cause. It's all good, my dude. ā¤ļø I don't think so, but that's something only someone working at Linden Lab can clearly tell. I don't have anything to do with this. It's obviously not my style as I'm trying here for many hours to make my point, and defend this point, with eloquence and dialectic. As I said, I didn't expect the offici
  13. I'm taken seriously enough so you feel it is worthwhile to spend your time and energy to argue with me. You must be taking me quite seriously, and that is a good thing.
  14. I think what you mean is: Why not me? Earlier I responded to you that I'm sorry you couldn't get the help that you needed, when you needed it. But to be quite frank? This is not about you, or some past event. It's about a current issue, that affects people globally, and as it just so happens, we are users of a platform that includes many, many artists and content creators, who need help now, not yesterday or in the past, but right now.
  15. That's why my personal suggestion would be the LindeX or process credit fee. A single variable to change, based on the residents economic limits tier. This appears to be the most simple to implement, but I'm not familiar with their system, and as I said earlier, this is just an educated guess.
  16. It's a petition, not a demand, and unlike how some people choose to communicate themselves here, it is also not a polemic.
  17. Well, when I still was doing commissions, and in the course of things getting more "expensive", it reached a point for me where I had to give away more than half of what I earned (obviously including things like income tax and other costs), but that was before I quit doing commissions and splits. People in other countries have a different situation. You are 100% correct. It's not a hardship. It's slavery.
  18. None of us know the numbers well enough to validate that assumption. We can only make educated guesses, as long time SL content creators. My guess is that reducing or even waiving payment processing fee for 30 to 45 days only for the "Resident 2" economic limits tier and below, isn't going to make a dent in Linden Lab's revenue, while it might (excuse the language) quite literally save some peoples' butts. I think though that lowering private region tier would probably have more negative effects on Linden Lab's revenue, but I wasn't suggesting that, I said "any or all" of all th
  19. I'm not ranking anything by importance, but as you seem to know me, you should know that I do stuff like that every once in a while. I have a banner, a large flag, at Arcadia that regularly changes to make aware of social issues. I also was starting to use my personal blog and twitter more frequently. https://twitter.com/wendystarfall Issues I brought to attention were among other things, mass shootings and car massacres, memorials for deceased humanitarians, women's rights, issues concerning the LGBTQ+ community, climate change, cancer support for children, and other causes.
  20. I'm doing that for, let me quote my petition: "...artists, performers, indy coders, graphic designers and students..." Those content creators who are in the "Resident 2", or lower, economic limits tier, who's real life business lay dormant during this crisis, and who rely on the small income they make on SL with their little brands. I'm sorry but you seem to only argue for the sake of arguing. That's what it is when taking short, not even whole sentences, into quotes, to try changing the context of the actual comment. It's a method used by trolls to derail topics. I
  21. Easy choice to make when your real life workshop is shut down during corona crisis. I don't expect that my request "seems reasonable". I think it is just and right.
  22. I'm not sure how you conclude that from the comment you quoted. But let me out on a limb: What if owning a private region is their way to promote their business, and not having that mechanic to advertise and vend their products would mean that the hypothetical 1,000 USD they generally earn that way, got reduced to something like 200 USD?
  23. This doesn't say it, because it is out of context. The context here was that I'm explaining why I would know things about artists with small businesses, and my response was that I supply them with features. Please stop tearing my comments apart to pervert the context. This isn't a trolling match.
