  1. You are correct. If ANY "Grandfathered" sim is sold on then that region loses its status as such. If any homestead region was, or is "grandfathered" it then loses it status if SOLD. However if you are renting, which sounds like this is the case in question here, then any regions that have the "grandfathered" status will, or rather should stay intact, as the actual owner is still in possession of the Region(s) in question. See below for details http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Homestead-Regions/ta-p/846139#Section_.2.4 Grandfathered pricing Some older regions have "grandfathered" or discounted pricing on their monthly maintenance fees. In February 2010, it was announced that these grandfathered maintenance fees would no longer be offered. Changing ownership or converting a grandfathered region now changes its maintenance fee to the current monthly rate for its region type. We are unable to swap the price of a current grandfathered region with a non-grandfathered region. Grandfathered pricing stays with the region for the life of the region, or until the region is transferred or converted. If a grandfathered region is abandoned and subsequently reactivated, its maintenance fee is updated to the current monthly rate for its region type. So Dragger Lok, as it's been pointed out to you by others, you are in fact incorrect in your assumption.
  2. I agree. I also suggested that someone from LL should address this by posting a response to peoples concerns about possible phishing/hacking of accounts via emails that appear to be sent from them on the forums as well as reply to people about this Beta participation offer and also to actually post the Beta participation programme themselves. Also these are not spoofed emails to spoof websites.I can only comment on the email sent to me, and all the links in the one I had were genuine, as was the email I received, I've had others from LL about surveys and also requests for "assistance" with items etc within SL, some I've responded to and others I haven't. Commitment to RL only allows me a certain amount of time in here lately, whereas a few months ago I was in here most days. Hence my participation with certain things within SL. I also did an IP Address check on the IP in the email as I hadn't heard anything about a Beta Test for mobile devices, and it (the IP Address) is genuine. I stress again, I'm only referring to the email I received and as far as I'm aware this is the same email sent to others. The online questionairre, and the 5 questions are soley to do with the Beta Testing. They want to know what you will be using to test it on. Desktop PC, Tablet, mobile, Mac etc. Also what O/S you will be using etc. Also they need to know your location.. ie where in the World you are. These details are what you'd fill out when joining most sites nowadays anyway. Opt in/out for info etc is also available when you fill out details. All they want you to do, if selected, is to test it - The programme - and give feedback and report any bugs etc and also to keep "silent" about the testing etc. Again something that Beta testing entails when trialling a new product. Hardly spoofing or scamming in my eyes. This service [Onlive.com] is akin to Steam and Origin etc. They too both do Beta Tests of games etc. No doubt you have to go through a similar process if you want to do testing with them. I'm not condoning their actions or other peoples for that matter but, as others have said, do wish that LL would inform people about this and respond to comments in the forums and post a blog etc about this.
  3. I've just spoken with Linden Lab and this is real. Not a fake. Like others on here I too doubted this but I checked directly with LL. Linden Lab also suggest that anyone who has doubts about this should contact them directly and do what I did. Supply the email information for them to check on so they can confirm that the email information is genuine, or not. I did this and LL informed me that they are hosting the Beta Test through onlive.com They also suggest that you get your information DIRECTLY from them and not any other source, to ensure that any emails sent are genuine.
  4. If you are that concerned about having adverts removed/blocked then you could go here https://chrome.google.com/webstore/search/ad%20blockers?hl=en a nice selection of them here. I use AdBlock myself and it is very good. Pages load a lot faster and also it stops this website, among others looking tacky and cheap. I can understand the need for adverts as LL have a source of revenue from these no doubt [pay per click or the like] Personally I prefer my web browsing to be advert free. If I want to shop online then I'll go to online shopping sites and look for what I want. I have no wish to be told what I want to shop for or "what I like" etc. I know what I want and what I like. Details for this adblocker, and others on that link from the Chrome Webstore, these are also available for other Web Browsers too. These are not illegal nor do they have spyware etc. So take a look and see for yourself.
  5. Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't "Banner Ads" are generally shown due to things you've either seen on other websites.. via cookies sending info back and forth or because you've clicked on one and it's taken you to the relevant site? On this topic.. I've had shown up as a "Banner Ads" or the option of "buying shares in various companies online so out of curiosity to see what kind of link, if any, Linden Labs has to this particular one. I found that it was for a company that is called eToro and this is some of the info on them Found at the bottom of the page of eToro eToro (Europe) Ltd., a Financial Services Company authorized and regulated by the Cyprus Securities Exchange Commission (CySEC) under the license # 109/10 US customers are accepted at www.etorousa.com Also this on Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EToro eToro is a social investment network registered in Cyprus, with R&D and Sales offices in Israel, USA, Australia and Europe. It provides personal online financial services in forex, commodities and stock indices through its own electronic trading platform. eToro is primarily a platform and a software provider; it is not itself a financial broker. Rather, it connects its customers with third party brokerage services provided by various brokers. I think I'll steer clear of this one, especially in light of current events regarding a Euro baleout and the fact that the Cypriot Government has taken to informing Cypriots, and anyone who has money in Banks there, that they'll be having around 10% of their savings taken out of their accounts to help towards preventing a financial collapse if a baleout isn't forthcoming. So much for penalising the banking sector for causing the financial collapse, once again it's the general public that has to pay the price for other peoples shortcomings. Worth reading this news item from the BBC http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-21827922 Cyprus rescue breaks all the rules I'm wondering how this will affect this particular firm - eToro - as they are based there. No doubt after clicking on this link, I'll be seeing more of this type of "Banner Ad" appearing on here and no doubt on other webpages I go to, due to cookies doing their thing. So all in all.. a Banner Ad that makes me wonder if I really want to do this kind of investment at all. Or am I being paranoid?
  6. If the problem persists.. use the term " Ruth " in the forums and you should find an answer that should help solve your problem. This can vary from person to person as pc issues and viewers vary greatly.take a look at this thread.

  8. Hi all I've not been online for a little while, over a month now, so if you sent me any IM's and I've not responded to you then apologies from me as they've been capped. Also I like to say a special thankyou to all those that made donations, I've not got your names to hand at the moment, but I will be contacting you all personally, albeit a little late, to say thankyou and your donations were very much appreciated. I've had a little tidyup up in the park and returned all the wreaths etc to those who laid them at the Cenotaph. (The prim count was nearing the limit for the region and I do like to keep some in reserve) I am adding a few park benches so people can sit in peace and quiet if they want to do so. Although this park will mainly be used in Oct/Nov each year, you are all more than welcome to use it as a place of calm and peace. I am working on some various trees and backdrops to make it more in sync with the seasons of the year. Also there will be a newer version of the memorial in the new year when it is completed.. ( it will have text on it, hopefully if it works as transferring it from a 3d cgi model in Blender and getting it to work in SL is problematic to say the least. as certain objects in Blender don't transfer into SL and some that do tend to "ghost" and go "alpha" on one side making the memorial hollow looking in certain parts. I may well have to "paint" it on or use an image instead. This keeps the prim count down but it won't be as realistic as I'd like it to be. I will be placing a box in the park in the near future, as people have suggested doing this for the park. When this is done it will be a discreet one that blends in and doesn't stick out like a sore thumb and detract from the park. Anyway as I've already said, I just wanted to say thanks to all of you who did leave wreaths and crosses (working on these as well as poppies too) and once again thank you to all of those who made donations.

  9. http://secondlife.com/destination/cenotaph-memorial-park Yay...! :) It's finally listed - and correctly too. Thank you Brett for your help and assistance with this and also thanks for listing this for me, after you spotted it in here on the forums as a post by Kalmeira Writer- and thankyou as well. Thanks to all that visited on the 11th November and also thanks for the very nice comments. Much appreciated and also thanks to those who made donations, that was a very nice suprise I can tell you and also appreciated as well. This is an old image.. well.. it's one that I took in early October just before I opened the park and since this was taken I've also made a few minor adjustments to the park as well. Free wreaths and crosses as well as a free wearable poppy are all available for use by everyone who wishes to do so. A Garden of Remembrance is also in place with a small video screen playing a few videos from YouTube in relation to Remembrance Sunday and also November 11th as well as a video that is from the The Royal British Legion. These are set to play only if you are within a set distance of the player and when you are only then will turn on and play. so to watch it you will have to have your audio/visual settings turned on and set to allow media to play. When you move away from the area it will turn off. Please do visit the Royal British Legion website and donate to them if you wish to do so instead of making donations to me.Also the donations I've received have now been paid to the RBL over the past few days. Thankyou to those who have donated, you know who you are :) Thanks again to all who have visited and also donated as well.
  10. I got a response from LL about this. Sent another email.... (!) about this. LL claim not to have recieved it.. so I forwarded it to them with an addendum on it.. so they can see the time/date on it along with the correct text I want on it. They updated it.. and didn't add the correct text.. another email sent requesting them.. please add the text I want on it.. highlighted it and explained that this memorial is dedicated to the British and Commonwealth armed forces and that it's been in Whitehall, London since 1921 and what occurs there annually every November. Now I just have to sit back and wait to see if they update it... again.
  11. I'm posting a link on here from the Destination Guide and I've posted it on Secondlife Facebook page, as well as on mine too Thanks to whoever got this put onto the Destination Guide. I do appreciate it. However, I contacted SL/LL - again- on Monday to get the text altered as it is incorrect and it's still not been amended from what I'm looking at today - Wed 14th Nov- No offence to people from the USA but this is a BRITISH and Commonwealth war memorial, not an American one. So if anyone from Linden Labs reads this could you kindly amend this to reflect what I emailed to you on Monday of this week as sending this in via your Destination Guide online request form doesn't appear to have worked - any of the three times I tried. https://secondlife.com/destination/cenotaph-memorial-park Also while I'm on here I'd like to thank those who sent me messages on Sunday and also those who sent donations, I do appreciate the sentiment and your kind words too. Also I am considering what some peopel suggested on Sunday as well. It's being looked into at the present time, Thanks again to all those who attended and all those who have been to the Memorial since Sunday as well. Thanks again,
  12. Thanks Tem, I do appreciate the feedback, glad you liked it too.
  13. There was a gathering in my park earlier today. Apologies if you missed it. I wish I had time to post it on here, but I've not been online for a little while due to RL commitments. This is my version of the Cenotaph that is in Whitehall, London. Cenotaph Memorial Park in Second Life
