  1. I vote with Josh for more conspicuous comments. All the negative reviews I've received but one are from people who can't be bothered to read instructions before they buy even though they are either in the product description or available as a PDF on the same page.

  3. hmmmm I haven't heard back from either complainant so I'll assume they received their merchandise one way or another. Scratch the notecard then.
  4. This would be THE prime time for some enterprising individual or group to start another SL Exchange (remember that?) To succeed it needs only do 2 things: (1) To Work and (2) Provide actual customer service. All my stuff on the marketplace is in DD now, but I found nothing wrong with the magic boxes, which BTW are still used successfully on other grids. I would quickly jump to list on a new marketplace. The last time there was some competition to the then XStreet, brought about by the anouncement of listing fees, my sales on one of the other markets actually exceeded XStreet for a month. SO
  5. To the OP: I moved 20 products yesterday. 18 Did fine, 2 exhibited the problem(s) you experienced. After poking around, it looks like the enire listings were lost so that I'll have to relist those items. Luckily neither was a very popular item. After moving the items I did a test delivery and also a test purchase with my alt of the some of the more popular items. All seemed fine. I've also received non-delivery compalints from 2 customers who, it turns out were still using V1 TPVs, so I've prepared a notecard to be sent out to all non-delivery complaints ot explain how and on what viewers DD
  6. You can link a new object to an existing link set as long as you do it in the right order. Pick the new prim(s) first and then the linkset last and the root should remain the same. Not mentioned above and depending if your build is static or not are the "huge" build rezzers like builder's buddy (freebie) which will rez prims within a given radius linked or not.
  7. It is very telling that LL first of all did not invite comment on their original post and have not sent any Linden to clarify 2k on this thread. I run my alt on V3 and it is usable. As far as innovation goes need anyone be reminded of V2 or the fact that it has taken LL till now to supply a usable viewer since it announced the demise of V1?( a viewer incorporating 'innovations' which have been present in TPVs for some time, probably, I would expect, using code from those TPV.) 2k is nebulous enough so that it can be read in 2 ways: 1. You can't put anything in your viewer that we don't have i
  8. I don't think the concurrancy issue can be resolved without fundamental restructuring of grid archetecture........... Totally agree with everything you said. The biggest possibility I have encountered so far is the OS Grid where your SIM resides on your server and the central servers just handle inventory and routing. OS is still pretty primitive but is advancing and has diverged from SL in quite a few areas, particularly in scripting. I don't believe that it's necessary for newbies to have $L I partially agree. If a newbie is savy he/she will find all the high quality freebies available, b
  9. I actually took the time to read this whole thread and with all the links being thrown around this one from April never surfaced: http://nwn.blogs.com/nwn/2011/04/linden-lab-financial-analysis.html Now where the discussion began on how rosey the future is (or not) and gradually deteriorated into what Second Life is or isn't, fact of the matter is, especially acording to the above article, SL is in trouble. So more likely the question is probably not what SL will become but if it will survive. Now this is not to ask if LL will survive since that is a different question since LL has its finger
  10. I had problems like yours and with inventory and textures way back when I started using different viewers to access SL. My solution (If I can remeber right it came from the Emerald team) was to create a cache folder on my desktop for each viewer I use. Every upgrade I manually clear that viewers cache (ie delete everything in the folder) before installing the new upgrade. I've had no problem since except when the SL servers hiccup.
  11. Sorry only 1/2 of one here too, for while I agree with you that the LL V2-3 is a pain I also agree with Cin. LL isn't going divert from their chosen direction. Luckily Kirsten's Viewer presents a more workable version and Firestorm, when finished will be as popular as Phoenix since they are polling people as to what features are wanted (how's that for revolutionary. Listening to customers??), so go with the TPVs.
  12. To the OP: I went the route you are considering a year ago when I could no longer find my store in the new search whereas it appeared at or near the top of the old search in what I considered key fields.. I however was able to sell my land, at a huge loss of course, but I still got something for it. I took it one step further and cancelled my premium membership since I use mainly TPVs and LL refuses to give you any support if you use one, so why pay premium??. So LL is out my tier and premium membership. I sell 100% on the Marketplace and while gross revenues are down a bit, expenses are 0 s
  13. The only downside of not owning land is that you don't have a private home base. That is important to a lot of people so they either rent or buy. I owned mainland for 3 years and had an inworld store for 2 of those years.It might be for you if you want to privately explore your kinky side and don't want other Avis taking snapshots Owning land was fun: terraforming, building a home & store, landscaping and just making my individual creative statement. However as time went by I found myself spending more time on the land and less exploring AND it's expensive, beginning with premium members
  14. Of the 1.XX viewers I think Phoenix has by far outdistanced the competition. For the 2.XX viewers as of this moment I like Kirsten's the best. It has a very polished feel and look. However I do believe when Firestorm is finished it will be my favorite as it will almost inevitably incorporate temporary downloads and other power features from Phoenix that make my Second Life so much easier.
  15. During the time of the listing fee debacle I had my items listed on four of the alternate marketplaces. There was in fact one month that my sales on one of those sites exceeded those on what was then XStreet. If it was true for me it was probably true for others so very quickly LL noticed and backed down. One by one the third party marketplaces died. So while the SL marketplace is far from ideal, LL is being very careful not to give its merchants any real reason to leave in any great numbers and thus anyone trying to start up will have a long uphill battle to win over customers. I believe in
  16. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting. This has been a problem for years and LL seems unable to address it. If you use a TPV, LL will tell you to switch to their viewer. If you use an official viewer thye tell you to clear your cache or do a clean install. I had hoped with the introduction of Viewer 2 that invnetory problems would be eliminated. Quite the opposite in fact I sometimes log in to find my Avi Ruthed and large parts of inventory absent. The upside is your 10K of items is still in the system. All you have to do is find the correct technique for this particular instance to retrieve them.
  17. 1.In addition to the above, if you use different viewers, make sure each viewer has its own cache. I use several TPVs as well as Viewer2. All their caches reside in seperate folders on my Windows desktop and I clear the contents of each when I upgrade. Inventory problens are few & far between, but that being said Viewer2 seems to have more problems in this area than all the others combined. 2. Try searching in the inventory window for 'a', then 'i', then the rest of the vowels. This often speeds up inventory loads. 3. If all else fails, try a clean install: uninstall Viewer 2 and delete
  18. To the OP: Ultimately I think a listing fee would be good for the marketplace and SL in general but probably not for the reasons that have been mentioned above. The last time SL announced listing fees aside from the caterwalling there was a large exodus to third party marketplaces. Those of us who were less inclined to knee jerk reactions just had duplicate listings on the other marketplaces as we watched to see what happened after the dust settled from the announcement. The result was the other markets were able to list more products and had more customers because of the free advertising pro
  19. Very hard to be constructive. Just lots of questions: 1. When is Viewer 2 search going to be fixed so that it is useful for anything? If I want to shop inworld I have to go back to a 1.xx based TPV to find anything useful. I closed my inworld store which used to found near the top of the 1.xx search and could not be found at all in the 2.xx search. No point in having a store that no one can find. 1a. Why is Viewer 2 search so slow compared to viewer 1.xx if it is supposed to be an improvement? 2. Why are the new 2.xx web profiles so slow compared to the 1.xx if they are supposed to be an im
  20. To the OP: 1: Is LL going to fix this damm seach engine as it is crap, my words but many would agree. 1. I wouldn't hold my breath. The person who did the great flow chart illustrates the reason. This is another example of the LL tradition of shooting on'es self in the foot. To explain, I used to have a script & stuff shop that appeared near or at the top of what I considered important search fields. Comes Viewer 2 and it's 'improved' search engine and I cannot find my shop. I close my shop, sell my land and make arrangements to have my magic box on a friend's parcel and since I don't h
  21. Viewer 2.2 is a step in the right direction. I've just downloaded the latest update and on the positive side the graphics seem sharper and more alive and the viewer is producing astounding FPS numbers on the statistics bar on my comp: in the 120-130fps range! On the downside I still have a lot of troubel with finding things on the UI and it's just not a matter of getting used to a new way. I think the interface is flawed. I'll give you a big for instance. I was trying to build on a client's land and lost a transparent prim underground. I found the surface patch ok in the advanced menu, but whe
  22. As a reply to the OP, I also think that there can never be too many options. As many people there are on SL, each would have a different idea on the ideal interface. Viewer2 IMO fails miserably. I had an easier time with the HIPIHI viewer and that was all in Chinese. I think you need to drop the browser idea and look at CAD or even word processing applications. One of the most powerful aspects in these programs is the ability for the user to highly CUSTOMIZE the UI. Maybe you can take a lesson from those developers: Provide a basic interface (the 1.XX is not all that bad) but provide the abili
  23. I assuming you're looking at mainland. As long as you're not in the new Linden Homes, I suggest you check out Zero Prim Rezzers to stretch your prim count.
  24. Simple? Maybe to someone who has a masters in mathematics. Euler rotation is expressed as the usual x,y,and z plus a 4th element I do not understand, even after researching it, even after talking to mathematicians about it. So in LSL we convert it back and forth using llEuler2Rot and llRot2Euler. I've given up trying to understand it. I just use it and it works
  25. Emerald has run flawlessly on my machine. Right now I have 2 windows going. My specs are: CPU: Intel Core 2 Series Processor (3000 MHz) Memory: 2047 MB OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3 (Build 2600) Graphics Card Vendor: NVIDIA Corporation (8800GTS) (From the statistics console) fps:71.5, bandwidth: between 8 and 20 kbps with music playing It looks like you are running an older machine. You might not be able to run the optimized version on it, but that is just a guess. I suggest you take your question either to the Modular Systems website or the inworld group(Greenlife
