  1. I imagine a region that can show compliance with (some specified) lean building practices, can be denoted as 'VR accessible'. Of course this would be awesome to experience (even if a 'club scene' was out of the question). Avatars too would have a rating target to aim for. An extra benefit would be to make lean building something to be prized?
  2. Register a top ten laptime at the Realistek Store to win lindens! New draw next Monday .. everybody wins something! Use one of our wandering horses that are roaming around, practice a bit, then get a friend with you to set a laptime. Its fun and easy! http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Hunder/212/178/1801
  3. from where im at i dont think thats true. Wordpress and a billion pluginsa are free including woocommerce. To have wider functionality they hold back a few things to encourage some small payment .. but its all free or roughly free once you have hosting which is also quite cheap if on a shared plan. But im only 6mo into this stuff .. theres a lot i dont know :)
  4. idk what the new word would be! But i have a possible new direction .. using youtube keywords: shortform, form with payment, .. these may end up getting me where i need to go.. it will take a week to try and see (!)
  5. I know SL users are a very clever bunch.. im hoping one of you can point me in the right direction! Im trying to build a subscription website. I need the simplest type of button (from a static wordpress landing page) .. 'Sign Up' >> user handle/email/password/payment info >> into members area. Simple right? But it seems every plugin needs the Wordpress login first, and then offers so many payment levels etc etc... I would prefer to not need the Wordpress top toolbar at all .. just a standalone simple 'signup+pay' button. Am i crazy? .. i
  6. When i say promote it with some 'freak' or 'edge' .. i mean do not omit the 'self exploratory' dark side of SL.. its attractive in that it allows for the first time in a powerful medium for folk to explore their own inner buttons/ fetishes .. what are mine? why are they there? so i can safely explore that in a virtual reality? It is so unique as an opportunity. If i see a promo for something with flowers, smiling happy people on a sunny day, or happy nightime clubbing it only tells me to avoid that as a possibly 'interesting' thing. But also do not show me a 'ghoul' .. way too childish! .
  7. i agree about different approaches to entering being available, or a step system so that the most intrepid folk can come back to the steps when they eventually get frustrated. I imagine a team focused on 20 'interested new prospective residents' being quizzed to pinpoint the exact moments of percieved hardship and actually addressing that in a clear & measureable way. Then i also agree with a less than g rated promotion. It doesnt have to be creepy, but definately dont make it look like its 'good clean fun' .. what a turn off! .. nobody wants that.. getting freaky, edgy an adult is part o
  8. The strength of SL (today & for at least the next half decade) I think is clearly stated in that the decline in users is so v - e - r - y v - e - r - y s - l - o - w . People REALLY like it here! It tells me there is currently not an effective plan where it comes to attracting & keeping new visitors. Im no expert, but im offering a starting idea. Add yours if you have a better one! I would establish 2 teams at the lab.. give them an equal budget, and get them to compete for attracting & retaining new signups at two different New Citizens locat
  9. I agree that if it was even a bit possible, it would be awesome to use VR in SL. Now that the VR tech has come along so much, and that the Lab has a number of experts in the field, could they not start a few 'VR-only islands', ones that require extreme lean building techniques, and still get a better result than all the platforms that insist on absolutely vanilla content? I saw one little brown fox jumping through hoops in VR, and that all the little brown foxes i ever need to see (!).
  10. FYI Realistek (my brand) also makes wearable and vehicle horses. The wandering vehicle type ones are expensive (12K) but do allow anyone to ride them. They also wander and graze around as horses do. You can see and ride them at my shop in Hunder. Because they are 'vehicle' horses (like an SL car) anyone can ride them .. but you cannot use them anywhere you like in SL as they must be rezzed on the ground (at your place). They also have 4 gaits (!) .. if you press to move as per normal, then lift and replace your finger (within 1 second or so) on your forward arrow the horse goes faster an
  11. I made a centaur recently and had to make a decision about height (the centaur does work with the sliders, but only a little). So .. I used the SL library avatars as the current suggested height guide. They are all 'of a size' smaller than we are used to in many SL sims over the last few years. I think that is good. I think guys in SL incrementally get taller over the years in an effort to be 'tough looking' or however you like to refer to that. So I see the smaller default avatars as a useful nudge from SL to gradually encourage shorter avatars again (and in line with Pe
