  1. LL should accept Bitcoin. Then there would be no fees. Or better yet, accept L$ as payment for premium, and tier. No fees there either.
  2. It is a website for a server that is located in SL. So I think it does have some relevance to SL.
  3. I'm trying to set up an ad server. And I want to set up a website, for the ad server to communicate to. The server will be showing a different ad every 30 seconds, and repeat every 60 minutes. I signed up at heroku. After signing up, I went to my page. The page says create a new app. I don't want to create an app, I want to build a web page. I set the language as PHP. Another thing. It says I have 512 MB of RAM. But I don't know how much bandwidth I get. I got the free version. But I don't know if that would be enough. Another place I signed up was 000webhost. They offer 10 GB of bandwidth. I'm not sure yet which one offers a better deal. I have somebody else making the server. He will tell me what to type. I need to know what to click on. The ads will be on the server, not on the website. The ads will be for stores, and clubs in SL. So if anybody on here uses heroku, 000webhost, or another hosting website for in world servers, let me know.  I also have a Wix.com account. I signed up to about three websites last week. Wasn't sure which one was the best. I did set up an account on Wordpress a couple of years ago. But that was for links to some comic strips. So I have set up websites before, but nothing like this. Now a question to LL. In the creators forum, why is there no place for websites? Lots of servers in SL, need a website in order to work.
  4. Well it does have something to do with SL. Since the servers are in SL. But if it doesn't belong here, then I will ask somebody else.
  5. Here is what I would do. 1. Locate the servers in the Cayman Islands, and the HQ in Bermuda. Next bring back gambling. With the servers in the Cayman Islands, and HQ in Bermuda, they don't need to obey gambling laws. May have to accept some other payment. Such as Bitcoin. 2. If the above is not possible, then shut down the Lindex. Let third parties buy, and sell the L$. They can sell it on ebay, or exchange the L$ for another online world's currency. After shutting down the Lindex, bring back gambling. Tell the government that the L$ is not worth anything. Say they are like bottle caps. LL should look at both options. And see which one is feasible.
  6. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post. I'm trying to set up an ad server. And I want to set up a website, for the ad server to communicate to. The server will be showing a different ad every 30 seconds, and repeat every 60 minutes. I signed up at heroku. After signing up, I went to my page.

  7. I don't think that LL should make the movie. I would suggest something like product placement. In the movie You've Got Mail, you see AOL on the computer screen. AOL became well known because of that. The movie came out in 1998. It was made in 1997. Most people didn't go on the internet then. I didn't get the internet until May 1999. Somebody reading this, might know a Hollywood writer. They could contact the writer, and suggest the story.
  8. I looked the movie up on wikiepedia. That movie is not like the one I described. This would be a romantic comedy, starring younger actors. The movie should show different parts of SL. Such as marinas, malls, beaches, islands, and mountains. It might show clubs, but not concentrate on clubs.
  9. Let me tell you guys about two companies. One was Marx Toys, and the other one is Mattel. Back in the early 60s, Marx Toys made about $50 million a year. Mattel made about $12 million a year. In 1978, Marx Toys went out of business. While Marx Toys made more money than Mattel, Mattel used a larger part of its budget for advertising. Marx Toys did advertise, but not to the extent as Mattel. Today, Mattel is a large company. SL has been around for 16 years, but few people have heard of SL. Everybody has heard of Facebook, or Twitter. They are always in the news. So, LL needs to find ways to advertise, and get the company in the news. They should also try to get SL in movies. Here is a movie idea. A man, and woman hate each other in RL. But they meet up in SL, and fall in love. We need younger actors to play the couple. So Tom Hanks, and Meg Ryan are out. Need somebody in their 30s. The movie would need a good title. During the movie, scenes would be filmed in SL. I suggest showing marinas in SL. Boat racing in SL. And pirate battles in SL. Other battles would also be shown, along with the inside of clubs.
  10. LL needs to advertise on radio, and on TV. I have seen some ads on the internet, but not much. So, LL needs to advertise more, but that will cost money. The only way for LL to advertise in a big way, is to make cuts else where. They need around $3,000,000.00 a year. Not as big amount as some companies, but still big enough to make an impact. They should also find some famous celebrities to endorse SL. How about Drew Carey? Carey was featured in the Sims game. He could be shown SL, and perhaps try SL out. LL could offer one year of free premium to game show contestants. They could even win an island, and pay no tier for one year.
  11. I hate the Linden Viewer. I use the Singularity viewer. I have used Firestorm, but not as good as Singularity. I hate the black buttons. I prefer blue. It looks just like the classic Linden Viewer. I only used Firestorm to put stuff up on the market place.
  12. I would replace 80 LL employees that work in California, with about 200 workers in India. Lets say the wage for each worker in India is paid $5,000.00 a year. Thats about $1,000,000.00 a year total. So LL would save $3,000,000.00 a year. Now they have increased the work force by 120 workers. Some of these could be the new G team. In 2010, LL had about 350 employees. Today they have about 245 employees. That is not enough workers. They need more workers. But that would cost more money if they don't layoff workers from the highest income areas. California is expensive to operate in. You have high taxes, and lots of regulations. So moving out of California, and moving to a no state income tax state, would save LL more money. Next, they need to advertise. They advertise on the internet. But not on TV, or radio. A lot of people have never heard of SL. They need to also try to get companies to come to SL. Companies did come about 12 years ago, but most of those have left. What companies could do is offer free money. Coke could set up an island. Go there, click on a machine, and enter Coke codes from bottle caps. Then get 5 L$. Nike, and other companies could do the same. But they might offer 50 L$, to 200 L$. Every company that has a presence in SL, would then place codes on their products. Cereal could place the codes inside their boxes. Try to bring back gambling, if possible. One way is to relocate the company head quarters, and servers to the Cayman Islands, or to Costa Rico. Have different levels of premium. Right now you can have only 10 pictures in your picts. Want more? Then you have to pay a higher fee. Want more than 70 groups? Then you have to pay a higher fee. Want to own mainland, but don't want live support, or stipend? Then you pay a lower fee. So If I was CEO of LL, I would do all the above.
  13. I'm not totally against a price increase. But to go from $72.00, or $99.00, is a bit much. That is more than 30%. I would suggest $75.00, or perhaps $78.00. Then later on increase it to $80.00. Let's find other ways that LL can make more money. Such as a land transaction fee. Or a higher fee if you want to belong to more groups. Want more than 70 groups? Then you will have to pay $15.00 more. How about a higher fee if you want more picts in your profile? If you stop paying the higher, then you lose the picts at the bottom. But lets have something else also. I have noticed that profiles say no payment info, or payment info used. Lets have these in our profile. Basic, No Payment on File. Basic, Payment info Used. Premium. If LL were to adopt my suggestion to have minor premium, then you would see "Minor Premium". There used to be Payment on file. But that is gone.
  14. He doesn't have a store. People pay him to do scripting work. I don't think he has sold any L$ on the Lindex.
