    What would be worse? pt 2

    Both would be obnoxious as hell. I don't want my name changed, I like it as it is, that's why I have it. LL used to charge for tps, it didn't last super long and LL decided it was a bad idea. SO, that said, both are dead in the water.

    Grotesquely swollen inventory.

    The highest my inventory has ever actually (I say actually, because I have tested it at higher numbers, but it was merely a temporary state, for that purpose, testing inventory at seriously grotesque quantities to see what impact they have on performance) been was around 500k. I have purged, foldered boxed, etc..many times. It sat around 350k for about three years. At some point I got it down under 150k, by further boxing and foldering. I am currently pushing my way back towards 200k (exact number escapes me, 189k-ish something I believe) Of that number, less than 800 are clothing/av items (skins, hairs, clothes and shoes) and at least 500 of them are ones I've made myself, lol. The vast majority of my inventory is building stuff, and related items. There are a LOT of "object"s, far more than any sane human would find reasonable. I also have a crap ton of stuff purely for entertainment purposes and way too many breedables. I am not the least bit worried about the size of my inventory....she may have a lot of junk in her trunk, but she knows just how to use it

    Brendens , Rileys etc

    If you read the previous threads you would see they are perfectly harmless land bots. They scan the land quickly and then they leave, there is literally nothing to be upset about lol.

    Some men can pull off pink amazingly well, in, and out of sl I have a picture around here somewhere of hubby circa 2008 in a pink 7seas bikini that he wore because I'm a butthead and he loves me anyway

    Long time no see.

    Welcome back, your name seems familiar but I don't know where from. It's entirely likely it was from when I was on my first av which is long gone (and forgotten at this point) anyway. It's also just as likely that I am entirely wrong...but still, welcome back anyway

    That's my fav too, lol. I always have to make extra of those, because they go fast and there won't be any to freeze otherwise, lol. I love my wafflemaker.

    Since proof is often required, and quite helpful.... Wanna keep making things up as you go along? Read the date, the very first post... Also, the bank requirement has also been in place, both with paypal (to VERIFY) and with SL (and plenty of other things one can connect to paypal) for, again, over a decade, lol. This, too, is not something new.

    Deanonymization because of copyright, whats next?

    Nope, you're wrong, plain and simple. Paypal has required bank information to verify people for, gosh, at least 15 years now. Why are you making things up? Why can't you discuss the topic, and how much it bothers you that companies want to know you're a real person and not trying to commit fraud? It IS an interesting topic, even if others don't agree with you, or at least, it can be. It can also be quite informative. You don't need the theatrics.

    Lmao, me, a troll...oh dear lord, I wouldn't even be a good troll. Thanks for that laugh, I really needed it. Your previous thread was deleted because you were acting like a lunatic and swearing left and right, at us, and LL, and throwing verbal temper tantrums. If you want to actually discuss the topic, do so like an adult and not a teenager that got their internet taken away who is stuck in "the sky is falling" mentality. Some people might actually agree with you, on principle, about information that is required for mesh uploads. Many probably won't, but at least it can be discussed in a manner that won't get the topic deleted. As for me, yes I am willing to let LL know who I am, in fact, they already do, and have for, hmm, over a decade now. *I* don't have a problem with it. If *you* do, than don't participate in anything that requires you to not be anonymous-like uploading mesh, it' really that simple. You're really being ridiculous, you're not the first, won't be the last, but you're not helping your cause whatsoever. Two years ago, your av required payment info as well, you are remembering things completely wrong. This is absolutely NOT something new, it's been in place for years, apparently far more than you realize.

    How many times are you going to post the same thing, especially within 24 hours? You do realize some of us were awake for your last post, right? A-It was WELL over year ago, over 5 even, that this requirement was put into place. No "changing" is taking place, you've just not been paying attention, at all, since you joined. B-No one is spying on you, no one cares to. If you're doing things that make you this paranoid about "spying", might want to stop doing those things. C-Why should everyone but you have to follow rules? D-This rule is due to real life laws, not some magical thing that LL simply made up to piss you off. If you want to fake outrage, do it where it matters, in rl, and direct it towards those that did and/or do things that require such laws to exist in the first place. Your anger is ridiculously misplaced Now some are likely to see this as me "being mean", but, it's really not, and it's directly related to the other thread which you already made about this topic and went off in a swearing tangent at us all and LL, all because you didn't want to give LL your information, and you were claiming this was some new change (see A). I am not being mean, but rather, straight forward, because you're behaving ridiculously about something that LL is, in fact, not responsible for, and you've done it twice in less than 12 hours, lol. I do, however, recommend that you get that paranoia thing looked at, because it is, quite clearly, causing you great distress for no real reason. (and that's not a knock on you, if you're actually this paranoid about "spies", I do think you need to find someone to speak to about it, it's quite unhealthy to live life that terrified of nonexistent things). This is for everyone else that might read your rants and think you're actually on to something, or right.....It's not, I can assure you, OP is extremely misguided and my guess is having difficulties in sl now *because he/she gave incorrect info when signing up (as stated) and now can't do what he/she wants to do because the info doesn't match the rl info. Either that, or OP just likes to rant and rave about nonexistent things. No one is spying on us, no one is stealing our info, nothing has really changed in the "info required" arena in quite a long time..and you're all perfectly a-ok. Don't listen to rants like this, they're ridiculously out of touch with, well, everything Oh and...

    Please let us see bots.

    Oh, I did know you were, lol. But, knowing some people, it's entirely possible that someone would come along who didn't, and think it actually possible too, lol. Much easier to cut that off first You do the same that I do, well assuming I was going there to find people. Those are places that if I see are simply trying to inflate popularity/traffic/whatever, I won't return, because I'll know those aren't very likely to ever be actual people. If I'm not there to find other people, but for some other reason, I'll just ignore and continue whatever I'm there for.

    Please let us see bots.

    Avs must "move" at least once a week, unless there is a week with literally no restarts at all. Even when using a program to log an av (scripted agent or otherwise) in, movement would be detected when they came back online. Yes even if the av always came back online in the exact same spot and a human, or program, never really moved the av out of that spot, it would be initially detected as movement on login. This would be as easy to "game" as anything else is, so I'm not sure how effective it would be, unless one is only interested in the number of hours an av was in one place. But then. I've seen people who play TE have their av(s) stand in one singular place for literally hours and hours on end, lol. At any rate, it's pretty easy to tell when a parcel/sim is using a horde of avs to make a place seem more populated, it takes very little time to tp in somewhere and one can tell if there are actually people at the location. I have tp'd into countless places that LOOK like they have loads of folks-all those green dots. Then I land and..not a soul in sight. If my goal was to find other people, I'd leave, and I have. More often than not my goal isn't to find people, though, so it doesn't bother me in the same way it does others. I get why it does, I'm sure it can be a nuisance for them. However, it's just as easy to tp back out as it was to tp in, so I would consider it a minor annoyance, at best-if I were looking for other people anyway.

    Do you talk about SL to your RL family/friends?

    I have talked about sl, quite extensively at times, to many a person in rl, and other places online. Yes, my entire immediate family knows I use sl. Obviously my children do, I have mentioned them and utilizing sl as a teaching methodology/tool many, many times, lol. A lot of the parents I am connected with in some fashion also know about sl, although typically it's again due to utilizing it as a teaching tool (think: homeschool children and groups, primarily). I have told many a stranger at rl RFL events about sl, and in many of those cases, at great length, lol. In fact, some of them are in sl now, or rather, they come in sl to participate in RFL events here. (sorry RFL= Relay for Life). I have discussed sl academically and with both other students along with faculty while on my own educational journey. I've even participated in the, shall we say, perusal of others' academic works connected to sl in some fashion(don't even get me started..ugh). I have talked about sl to friends and other family, all over the globe, all to varying degrees. Some of those people are in sl now, some were and have since moved on, and I fully intend to drag more down the rabbit hole. I find, for me, and me only, it's utterly useless to *not talk about sl, or rather, keep it to myself as it were. Yes, sl can be, has been, still is some days, my own escape, but I am not bothered by the side of sl that seems to have caused the "bad rep" some assume it has. I prefer giving people that do perceive it as nothing but...(insert whatever you want here, it's usually negative, and often times related to sex in some fashion too..)..a better idea of what it can be. So, yeah, long winded way of saying,yes, they know, lots of strangers do too, and plenty more will in the future.
  16. The fact that people fail to follow rules, or believe anonymity on the internet can protect them in some fashion, doesn't, in any way, negate the fact that they very well know rules exist. It also doesn't negate the fact that they know there are potential consequences. Again, it can be likened to rl law breaking. Not everyone listens to, or follows, rl laws too but we still know they, and potential consequences, exist. You're giving idiots that enjoy not following rules way too much credit, lol. The thought is not always fleeting, in the least, some people simply don't care, period. We can agree all we want on every other point, and that they should care, but that too doesn't change the very real fact that they likely never will (until they find themselves on the other side of the consequences, even then, it's not always the best deterrent either). So, yes, it's an unnecessary threat that may seem proactively hostile for no real good reason to some-which you can see by the answers here. To me, it's simply unnecessary text, not bothersome, just unnecessary. It seems, from reading other responses, it very well may be a sale prevention method more than a rule breaking hindrance, at least for some merchants anyway. If that line, alone, can cause people to think more than twice about purchasing from you, it's quite likely to be unnecessary, if not worse (and according to some answers, it's obviously worse than that, even if I may not share their sentiment).
  17. Oh we have our fair share of outdated, antiquated and hilariously odd laws too, lol. Though many of them are never enforced today, should one find his/her self on the wrong side of someone wishing to enforce it..judicial systems will still say "ignorance of the law is no excuse", most of the time. Though, I doubt anyone would find themselves on the wrong side of most antiquated and hilarious laws we still have on the books from days long gone by. These are just some from my own state, lol.. 1. Women are prohibited from wearing patent leather shoes in public. 2. It is illegal to fish for whales on Sunday. (we have a lake, not an ocean, btw, last I checked..no whales in any of the great lakes) 3. It is illegal to get a fish drunk. 4. The (state) driver’s education manual states that you must honk the horn whenever you pass another car. (not typically enforced, but can be, and has been) 5. It is illegal for more than five woman to live in a house. 6. Posting signs at swimming pools is illegal in (specific city). 7. It is also illegal in (same city) to display colored chickens for sale. 8. It is illegal to walk a cow down Lake Road in (a different specific city). 9. The installation and usage of slot machines in outhouses is prohibited in (yet another city). 10. If someone loses their pet tiger, they must notify the authorities within one hour. That last one is particularly hilarious, while also not being so, and actually still enforced in my state, because there are people that own them (or have owned them, and had them escape too).
  18. In rl, you are well aware that breaking laws come with potential consequences. Even if you break a law and never face those consequences, the potential for such-including legal trouble, is a given. You don't need someone, for example, to sit there and verbally tell you every single time you get into your car that certain acts committed while driving, are illegal and come with potential consequences. You don't need a note in your vehicle spelling it out either...you are simply expected to know. The very same thing applies here, in that the potential for any consequence is going to exist should someone choose to not obey whatever guidelines they are given by the creator. So the threat isn't really necessary. It may not bother me in the same way it bothers others, but I can still find it rather unnecessary without being truly bothered by it. And yes, I know, this is sl, it's not rl..doesn't change the facts, jack.

    Somebody loves me...

    I do understand that, from your position, some of these things simply don't exist, or shouldn't exist. You perhaps haven't had the same experiences as others, and so your interpretation or reception of a specific day and what people "should do", or even "actually do", may very well be biased based on that. All humans have biases, for all kinds of reasons. I will, however, pose the idea that had you been exposed to things being done differently than you believe they should, especially from a young age, for example a place where such things are quite common and have been for many generations...you'd likely think differently. Even if you didn't, however, and still believe things *shouldn't be that way, you'd still know that they are a certain way. (clear as mud?, yeah, probably ) This, you should DEFINITELY do! Even more so if you include actual bacon, because...well, it's friggen bacon!! Then again, I am fond of odd gifts, cards for no real reason, funny cards, and all sorts of things that make people smile, with no particular holiday necessarily attached (and a lot of times even with a holiday attached too). I am fond of such, because I am fond of making people smile unexpectedly. If they're expecting it, it's great too, but it's pretty awesome when they're really not expecting it.
  20. As someone that regularly purchases full perm items, that kind of "rule" is pretty normal for many of them. It is, in fact, not that particular line that is a problem, it's the rules that come before it. That line, which could be stated any number of ways, refers to whatever terms exist before it. Even if not stated, it is a given that whatever terms a creator/seller has, should not be broken, and if they are, you run the risk of potential trouble with both LL and possibly rl courts(however rare that may be, the potential exists). That particular line, regardless of how it is worded, is not a deterrent for most people, it certainly isn't for me. But, the terms that come before it, very well may be. For example(s) : Price regulations-I'm not fond of anyone telling me what I can price things at, if you do, I don't buy from you. I don't judge you, I simply don't buy. Determining how much I must change the item-This one isn't as common, but I have seen listings that say "simply adding a texture is not enough, you must do MORE than that" and similar wording. To this I say, pfffft, no sale, even though I don't simply slap a texture on things and sell them that way, I still think it's a stupid rule, as some folks truly are magicians with textures (I'm not one of them, but still, they exist) Cannot be included in gifts-This one probably doesn't bug a lot of other people, but it bugs me, just enough to keep me from purchasing. I like both making and giving gifts to people. I often make things for charity events, and I always include a gift for the charity to hand out to guests, donors, event participants etc... So this is an automatic no go for me. I get it, I just don't agree with it. When "allowed permissions" are super strict. By this I don't mean them saying "you can only sell copy/mod, or mod/transfer", that I get, and it makes sense. They don't want you handing things out full perm, or so that both you and whoever you give it to can have copies-totally makes sense. But if you tell me I can ONLY sell it "mod/trans", or ONLY sell it "copy/mod" instead of either or-which I've actually run into, I'm not buying. Some of my items need to be copy, some need to be trans, I need to have the freedom to determine which fits better for the end user. I think that's it, lol. So, no, that line isn't going to be a deterrent for me, but the terms that come before it, very well may. Although this topic seems better suited for the merchant forum than the general discussion one, I believe. Don't be surprised if it gets moved there

    What do you think about morphs?

    For individuals, their personal use-profile pics, just for fun, etc.. whatever tickles your pickle, I say. They're not MY thing, but, hey, knock yourself out! For advertisement use..no, just no, and there is no other answer, for me, besides no. If you're selling me something for sl, I want to know what it looks like in sl. If you're selling me a wearable for an sl av, I want to see what it looks like on an sl av. I don't give a rat's left nut if the end product is done amazingly well, if you're not going to show me what it really looks like, in sl, or on an sl av, I'm not buying. (so those renders people use, can kick rocks, imo) But I also feel the same about product ads that I think are over processed, too. I really like seeing how things look in their natural state, with little to no, enhancement I suppose is the word I should use. I already have difficulty seeing a great deal of things, so it chaps my hide to no end when people make that worse for me-even if they don't know they're making it worse. I am really spiteful (not sure that's really the best term), but I will forever hold it against someone when they screw something up, for me, by over processing the ad/photo(s) of the item. I doubt many others feel nearly as strongly as I do about the processing part, which might be attributed to the fact that they, themselves, can probably see it way better and very well may be able to get the item to look VERY similar-if not identical-to the ad. I don't have that luxury....so, please, show me what it really looks like, especially on the MP where it literally costs you nothing to add a pic to the listing. Hell use your over processed pic too, I *might* still consider buying, if you also include a REAL pic without that extra frufru-ness. I know so many amazingly talented creators that sell themselves way short just because of how they make their ads, and subsequently their products, look. I loathe shopping anyway, though, so, take my opinion with a grain of salt on that, I am beyond picky about some of the weirdest things. Clothes are actually the least of my concerns, I only buy new ones a couple times a year, if even. I mostly buy building supplies, decor, vehicles, my animals, things like that, lol. I can only imagine how nitpicky I'd be if I bought clothes more often, lmao.

    Selling pics

    Nope, you would just list it in one category. In fact, you can't list it in more than one category anyway. In this case, I believe it would most appropriately belong under the art category and then select which subcategory in there it fits under Photos the best, personally. You *must select a subcategory, you cannot(should not, I should say) list it under just "Art".

    Somebody loves me...

    I will have you know that in every town I have personally lived, and talked to other people in (which is far more than I can likely even name, let alone remember the sheer number at this point) since my earliest memories of life....many, and I do mean MANY, have altered the traditions they celebrate on Valentine's Day. As I said before, I'm not one of them so much, especially as an adult, because I don't really celebrate any traditions at all on that day...but loads and loads and loads of people do. They celebrate the day all kinds of ways, really. It seriously is NOT just a day for romance anymore, and hasn't been for a really long time, longer than I've been alive, that much I know from talking to those in generations before mine (which I do frequently, they have amazing stories...but I digress)-and that is something that works the world over. In fact, in some countries, it's really a day about friendship and love is sort of on the side. Of course, this very well may not be in celebration of the true ORIGIN of the day, but that doesn't alter the current fact. The current fact is....many, many, many people..more than I can certainly count right now, celebrate that day as a day simply to share love, friendship, smiles, whatever have you. Romance plays a role for some, absolutely, and I would never begrudge anyone the belief that it should, but the "traditions" as they once were have been changing for generations. This is something that I am certain happens to likely every holiday, really, over time as people adapt, change their points of view, change their opinions, change their desires...whatever have you, they change. As they change, HOW they celebrate and what traditions they take part in, are just as likely to change. They may not change for everyone, I'm quite certain they do not, actually, but they do change for quite a significant number of people. Look at how many people buy things for their children on Valentine's day-I've worked retail and the vast majority of my rl friends are parents, it's way more than you probably think. That's certainly not in the spirit of romantic giving, or following traditions created by the origin of the day, now is it? Love, yes, romance...eh...that's a line no one should be thinking about, let alone crossing. I only bring that up because it IS very much something that happens a crap ton(and it works in reverse too, kids giving things to parents too), not just in the US, though it may happen more in the US, I can't be certain since I've only ever lived here. And it also goes against both your and Bradford's idea of what Valentine's day *is*(or rather, how you both seem to think it should be, for everyone). I won't begrudge you your opinions, but sometimes you state things as if they are fact, rather than opinion, and sometimes your facts aren't right. Yes the tradition of giving romantic cards still exists, but it's not the ONLY tradition of Valentine's Day celebrated, all over the world. Some folks may not like that fact, but it doesn't make it any less a fact.

    Wouldn't this offend you either?

    The brat isn't even slightly offensive to me. Though I probably will make Italian sausages for dinner at some point this week now. However, I will have you know I am highly offended after spending so much time trying to figure out if the picture was crap, my lack of vision was playing tricks on me, or the texture work on that top (?) was horrid. I had to ask other people, ugh, such an inconvenience, just awful. Fix that poor thing!!!

    Loot Boxes Revisited

    If you use this as some sort of measurement, by the very same token, those people can't/shouldn't participate in an awful LOT of things, especially anywhere online. I'm not sure that's the most fair assessment of these situations though, or a measurement of how they are potentially gambling/potentially harmful. When you're dealing with OCD-and things similar to it-isn't quite a great deal of things they do a potential gamble or potential trigger? The answer to that question is a resounding yes, a very loud one, though it may also, if not certainly, come with the "your mileage may vary" caveat. That's the sort of danger one can only protect one's self from, and the remainder of the world really can't be held responsible for when/if someone can't, or simply chooses not to-or rather, held responsible for ensuring they are protected. I don't believe you're trying to say the world should, but I can't quite tell from the post, so I'm gonna stick with that's probably not what you're trying to say.
