  1. Oh, I am looking for how to fill a support ticket... and I land here? lol
  2. This is a recurrent question, and as far as I know, it is not true. Lag happens in the viewer and into the transfers between the world and the viewers. The inventory is still in the database, and it is not involved in this. Especially I hardly see how the way it is organized may affect lag. Mains sources of lag are: -Windows scraping the hard drive (and other "background tasks which pass before the main task, such as anti-virus scan, defragmentation, etc.) -quantity of prims in sight. SL has severe limitations in prims for landscapes, but we must be aware that some outfits have hundreds, see thousands of prims, so that one character bring more lag than a whole landscape -scripts. Recently a new form of script lag was found, when some outfit has size adaptation scripts: thousands od scripts may then be working simultaneously. Alway disallow size adapters when unused. -Internet congestion, slow internet link, etc. which slow the interaction between the keyboard and the character. -various issues and bottlenecks into the communication protocol, internal SL systems, etc. The only case where a bloated inventory may cause a slower reaction is when you display it, or do searches in it, because at this moment, and at this moment only, you provoke a database request, which will take longer if there are many items. Butt his is a matter of milliseconds. Also putting your items in boxes will just make your inventory less practical.
  3. I had similar problems, they reacted in some days. :-) Note that abandonned land are put in auction. This may interest you... or bring you bad neighbors -(
  4. Submit a support ticket. First, abandoned land has no actual owner, or the owner does no more come in world. Second, only Governor Linden and his staff can modify abandonned land. As far as I know, they work well, so just ask :-)
  5. Hmmmm.... there is no simple way to do so. There is no export function for SL objects. This is a problem. If you have time, you can copy-paste notecards, make screen copies of textures and record sounds. In a general way, do this of course only for elements that you own, or which are free of copyright, such as textures which are memories for you. For objects, there was an (in)famous Copybot script created to save objects on your hard drive, but it was extensively used for copyright theft, so I don't know if it is still allowed and where to get it. And DO NOT use copies of unknown source or hacked viewers: pirates are not kind, these softwares are quasi 100% certified to contain viruses, or at least tools for opening a back door on your PC. Otherwise, the only way to have some back-up is to have another character (an alt) that you can left dormant, or use for other purposes. And still this works only for copiable and transferable objects. In most of the case, missing objects in inventory can be recovered if you "clean the cache".
  6. The behaviour of this person, as you describe it, is clearly abusive. First, the capture roleplay sims are an exception to the TOS and general legal/politeness rules on "attacking" or "harrassing" people, as it is a part of the roleplay here. Second, this was clearly a provocation: sitting in an adult encounter/caapture sim, in adult attire, and claiming to be a victim... it is so gross that all the bloggers saw the trap Third, there is a disclosure of a private chat, and this is forbidden by the TOS and by laws. So you can report this person, who seems to clearly be a griefer, and you could even sue her in RL, if the whole affair was nott utterly ridiculous.
  7. This cannot come from your computer or viewer: if so, with using an alt, you would see your main character in the same way, using the alt or using the main character. So useless to fiddle your computer, the trouble is not here. Same reasoning goes with the items, prims, clothes, etc.
  8. Law is not "semantics". Better to understand the difference, before a court goes "bitching" you.
  9. I don't know if this is in the TOS, but anyway IMs are private, so it is always an offence to publish them without consent. RL laws need thick books to be described. If the TOS was to re-enumerate all what is forbidden by law, it would be a thick book too. So TOS is only about basic discipline, while not superseding laws. And the fact that an offence is not mentioned in the TOS does not make it legal.
  10. I must confess I don't understand these replies. I say "people feel that " and you replied as if it was MY opinion... we are not in the TV :-)
  11. This is not an abuse per se, and many people do this (although generally the contrary, RL females playing a male in SL to escape harassment) and anyway not a TOS violation. However there are cases where you should be careful not to harm your play mate's feelings: if you engage into sex activities, or love activities (or some professional activities). Some don't really care about your RL gender, but the majority will feel deeply hurt or raped if they realize that you are not the gender they expected. So you need some care if you engage into such activities. If you are in a place with sex poseballs where people just click to use them without saying hello, very probably these people will not care of what you are in RL. But if you want to engage into a more constructed relation, it is better to tell your partner, if he asks for. Ideally the dialogue should be: "-are you a lady in RL? (or what is your age, race, etc.) -Do you really want to know? it may be disappointing -yes I really want to know." At this stage, you must accept one of the two: to tell the truth, or that your partner may not engage without knowing. If you reply, you can ask for not disclosing. Concealing RL gender, age, etc. is part of the game. But Lying is often felt as a very serious offense. Remember that divorces were pronounced on the basis of a SL relation, considered as a true adultery. I would not be surprised if some courts consider lying about SL gender as a kind of rape.
  12. There is no such thing as a legally recognized privacy in Second Life. This is the reason why more and more national laws consider SL as a whole to be a sex club, even if most users are in for very different purposes. So beware: Being in a locked home does not protect your privacy. others can still cam into your home, enter, hear sounds, use poseballs, etc. You cannot avoid your IM and groups chats to be recorded on your correspondent's computer. On Windows, look at: c://documents and settings/Your user name/Application data/Second Life/Your character name If you really don't want this to happen, use local chat only, in a secure place, where nobody else can access at less that the chat distance (20m). Unknown objects may report chat or behavior Again the only solution against this is to be on our own sims. To be noted that the open sims still exist, and they are still useable to have one's home with a bit of empty land around. What you can do: read Ayana Auer's post (the first) I have a list of things you can positively do to protect your privacy, but instead of repeating it, I send to Ayana Auer, who replied first and gave very good explanations. What LL should do: The lack of real privacy forced many sims to flag themselves as adult, for protecting private homes, despite these sims were in fact PG. In a general way it is a hindrance to many activities. At a rough estimate, privacy should increase users and sims in a significant way. To provide with a private statute for lands or volumes, where no camera can enter, nobody can enter, objects cannot send messages, chat must not be recorded, and so this zone would really have the legal statute of a private place, with all the protections required.
  13. because there IS a viewer or two out there that display in Second Lifeas Emerald (and can also pretend to be other viewers as well) which isused by griefers. This is the reason why, if we use Emerald (as well as any other software) we need to download it on the manufacturer's site, and not on third party sites (geek sites, forums, advertisings, etc.) so in this case just follow the link indicated by LL.
