  1. My understanding is that most people really don't care. unless you're getting into an actual relationshiop, people don't really care either way. Even when talking about sexual relationships, some people have the mindset of not wanting to know and only care about the gender of your avatar. Others will want to know. I think the only time it matters to most is when you enter a relationship. You can always mention in your profile that you're a guy in RL. From what I've seen, a lot of guys with female avatars will just make their avatars transgender while being fully male in real life. Though,
  2. Hello, me and some friends run a freebie place and just about everyday I get reports from players abotu these people spamming bites. it's been happening for years and years and years. Our ban list is nearing the cap (both the region ban list and the land ban list). I beleive there are some products out there for individual avatars to block these spam messages, but what I want something that blocks it entirely. Being a freebie place, we get mostly new comers who don't know whats going on. So while I can't stop all the spammers, I'd at least like to stop these horrible bloodlines peopel from b
  3. Alright. They refunded me the lindens and responded to my ticket. Whew, I can continue trusting LL again. Thanks Dakota Linden.
  4. I like most of these. What I don't like is the deactivation. Instead, I think it'd be much better to just have the store/owner marked as inactive. This way great items will stay available but people can at least be aware that the person is inactive and be aware that they aren't going to get in contact with them. I'd also love to see a filter type search. Somethign where I can search multiple categories at once. Having an option to search for things that are and are not mesh is something I've wanted ever since mesh was introduced. It's super annoying to search for specific clothing sty
  5. I would assume if my lindens stay inside SL I wouldn't have to pay any taxes. I always thought that Linden Labs paying taxes would be enough since it's all their stuff and the money they send out to people is something other than "payment" since most of us don't actually work for them. They take fee's and such from us in multiple places. I'm not personally on the up and up about tax stuff so I don't know what I'm talking about. But I don't see why the government would have to dip their hands into our money if they've already taken some from LL as a bussiness that's holding our virtual busi
  6. Thanks. That's good to hear. I'm definately not going to bother with it ever again. If I actually do get my money back, I'll probably use it and then select don't renew right afterwards. It'll probably be a very long time before I trust it again even if they do give me my money back.
  7. I've already submitted a support ticket (which hasn't gotten any response yet. on day 5 now). I was just wondering if anyone else had this issue and got it resolved. I got 3 front page enhancements for 3 of my products (1 for each of them) and on my transaction history, I got charged 8 times for it instead 3, so they took away way too many lindens. I checked the status of my listings and sure enough I only have 30 days for the 3 items I enhanced. So instead of taking away 8,697L (3 times 2,899L) They take away 23,129L which is absurd. I'm just hoping I can get my money back (the 5 extra ch
  8. Looks like all I needed to do was use a different viewer. I switched to a popular third party viewer (firestorm) and even when set to ultra, I no longer have major or noticable FPS loss/lag issues. I really wish the official viewer had whatever this thing has. After the Emerald fiasco, I'd always been extremely paranoid about third party viewers. Anyway, if anyone else is having the same issue I was having, maybe a trusted 3rd party viewer is the answer?
  9. Wow, sorry I upset you with my post, Freya Mokusei I used Time Warner cable. The same internet provider I've been using for the last decade+ including when SL ran really well with no lag with the conditions I listed. As far as I'm aware though, fram rate lag isn't connection related which is why I didn't list it. As for everyone else, thanks for the replies, I'm just glad I'm not the only one. I know a few friends who can play SL like normal with no reduced frame rate and they have PCs about the same range as mine. The only thing I can guess is that our specific gfx cards aren't opt
  10. UPDATE: Earlier to day, I switched to a 3rd party viewer adn that seemed to resolve my lag issue completely. Thank you everyone for your input (even those of you who were upset with me for some reason). I'm not sure why the official viewer caused me to have major FPS drops when around other people even at the lowest graphic settings though. As I've mentioned, it started happening about a year or less ago and my hardware and connection haven't changed but the viewer has, so I assume that it's ultimately the viewer. Maybe it's not compatible with my specific graphics card and the 3rd party viewe
