  1. I can now read group chat. That means that LL has gotten new hamsters to run their computers, or they have gotten new tape for their mainframe computer.
  2. Another update. I can read messages in a couple of groups. But not in the rest. Perhaps later tonight, or tomorrow morning, I will be able to read messages in other groups.
  3. Still not able to read messages in group chat. I wonder what is taking LL so long? I hope it will be working tomorrow. Tomorrow will be seven days without reading group chat.
  4. One person in one of my groups, said that she couldn't read group chat for about a week. So there is no telling when it will be fixed. I still can't read group chat.
  5. I still can't read group chat. But I did look at the status page. Below is the update. ======== Investigating - We are aware of failures with message delivery in group chat which are impacting some users. We believe that we have identified the cause, however the fix is going to take a bit of time to implement. Please forgive the inconvenience as we work to address this issue. Nov 13, 12:02 PST =========================== So the fix is going to take some time.
  6. Hey BillJakes, if you are premium, you can live chat with a Linden. I talked to Rocko Linden this morning. He said that they are working on it. I'm still having the problem. Last night, I unplugged the modem for a couple of minutes. That still didn't work. The hours that you can chat with a Linden is from 9 AM ET, to 5 PM ET. Yesterday I did file a ticket. This morning it said it was still being processed.
  7. I got on this morning, and it is still the same. I still can't read group chat. Anybody else having this problem? I'm hoping that somebody at LL will reply. I did read the grid status. LL posted that last week. You would think they would have that fixed by now.
  8. So I long on at 5;30 PM ET, and I can't read group chat. I can post messages, and everybody in the group can read it, but I can't. I can read a personal IM. That is no problem. And it is not just me. Somebody I know had that happen to them two weeks ago. She couldn't read group chat for about a week. I did file a ticket. But I would hate to go for a week without reading group chat. So what is going on? This keeps happening over, and over. Is anybody else on here having the same problem? I don't mean a few days ago, or last week. But right now.
  9. 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.
  10. It is a website for a server that is located in SL. So I think it does have some relevance to SL.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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 ca
  14. 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.

  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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 adve
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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 hig
  21. 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 $15.00 more. How about a higher fee if you want more picts in your profile? If you stop paying the higher, then you lose the picts at the bottom. But lets have something else also. I have noticed that profiles s
  22. He doesn't have a store. People pay him to do scripting work. I don't think he has sold any L$ on the Lindex.
  23. If that is the case, then LL should lower premium, or have minor premium. A lot of people can't pay for premium. I know a guy that lives in Venezuela, and is basic. No payment on file. He is a scriptor. He is not on much, and he can't afford premium. I don't think he has a store.
  24. It might be a good idea to do away with ban lines. If a person is banned from a place, that is one thing. But to say that only group members can inter a parcel, not a good idea. Especially if it is a large parcel. In some sims, it is hard to fly around, with out hitting a ban line. Do away with those, and flying would be easier. Don't want anybody flying over your land, then get an island.
