  1. Ahhh! - I just discovered an unexpected "group Liability" payout - that I didn't spot before. I have now queried it with the group owner. Will wait for the response. Thanks for your help everyone! Feel a bit silly now, for not noticing the listings in the Trans History! Ooppps! Thanks again!
  2. I don't really get what's gone on - but I had just under L$100 in my account... and my boss paid me, and has been paying me - I have lots of lines in IMs saying XYZ paid you XYZ amount... and I had a couple of Tips too.... and yet... my account remains as L$-189 ... how can this be? I didn't know you could be in the minus with Linden labs. I'm only on a free basic account, so I don't know if there is anyone I can contact, as something is clearly amiss..... Any ideas whats happened, and how I can sort this out?
  3. Thank you for this information. Not being tech savvy, I was just assuming that LL weren't bothering to attempt to resolve bigger residential issues. Thank you.
  4. Thanks for all the replies. I just want to make it clear that I see this vermin's words and within 2 lines to me, or upon realisation it's him, he's blocked and muted by me. I haven't personally responded to him (beyond one line "hi", maybe 8 months ago) in 5years+ myself, because he's not at all versitile in his grammar structure, so is easily spotted, and yet he continues to IM me. He obviously thinks I'm gonna give in one day. lol. Sadly, others don't do this and he continues to plague them with more and more vile comments. They have shown me their convos and he clearly gets his jollies from upsetting people with vile language, perverted suggestions of sexual acts, and sending pictures of areas of himself, that probably need medical attention, rather than public inspection.
  5. Hi Kristen, Thank you for your response. We have all done all you suggest several times (apart from the RL stuff as he hasn't found us there, yet), but he keeps coming back in alts. Its ok to just mute and block offenders, but when the opening lines are pretty much from the off, abusive, and instantly sending private anatomy pictures of himself and in some cased that he has uploaded to the internet - so sending links too - after a few years of this, even without response from myself, it gets tiresome to say the least - especially when you know it's not just you enduring this idiot. I think I am more saddened that his conduct stopped this other person from enjoying SL just because as soon as they come online - he would contact them again, with yet another Alt. It just seems dreadfully unfair, that this one person can blight so many users lives for years, and just be allowed to continue, where as a good friend, who I know well in both lives, was sent an email saying he had been banned for *****, when he could be accounted for at all times, and actually - it bugs me that he barely says boo to a goose, because he is dreadfully insecure in both lives, and yet without warning, or chance to appeal, or defend himself, he was just banned. He sent an email in, and some people sent supporting emails, and nothing happened. He remains banned. And the addition of that news, alongside this stalker, all really has dented my faith in LL as a company. I fill continue to file AR's and just keep hoping that one day hope, LL will boot this guy from the Grid forever. Thanks for the reply anyway.. It is very much appreciated.
  6. We do block and mute and he get's sim banned, but he just creates an Alt every time. The Sim owner has at least 12, if not more, of his Alts Sim Banned now. All have ben AR-ed multiple times, by multiple people. It's really surprising that he just keeps appearing.
  7. For about 6 years, a chap has been surfacing, and been rather vile in his conversation, with people I know and me, and is abusive. The Sim owner has banned at least 12 Alts of his, if not more, over the years - and all involved have reporting them all. We mute him too, but he simply creates another Alt, and he turns up again.... and so it goes on. Recently, I made a new friend - met just out on the Grid, and it turns out that they too, and other people that they know, have been harassed personally for years by this chap, and have reported him more times than they can remember, and muted him, etc, but he just keeps on coming back. The abuse in the convos I've seen - where the person politely also repeats requests that he leave them alone - is disgusting, and now he has also resorted to sending close up pictures of his er... well...use your imagine!.... It's not even nice looking - slightly deformed even - certainly not something you'd put on display... unless it's to a medical professional! Lol. But, honestly, this is a serious issue, that actually led to this new person in my sl life, leaving SL for a while, and honestly I wish this creep's IP would be banned, to remove this blight on SL's grid. Linden Labs have had many AR's about this person - and nothing has ever happened, at least there has never been any response.... and it's getting to the point of ridiculousness...it has literally been years. Enough is enough. So - when AR's fail..... what is the next step? I really want to help my Staff member a lot, and to stop him causing upset in my club. I and my new friend both have free accounts, if that makes any difference.
  8. I don't know whats happened - but I am on Phoenix Firestorm Viewer, and for the last couple days I can't get inworld. Gutted - especially at this time of year. The loading screen goes through all the motions, but then gets stuck on "Connecting to region". Its happened a lot in the last 6 months, but after shutting down and retrying again, it usually loaded. The last 2 days - nothing. I have a bad internet connection - so I'm wondering if it could be that? Any one got any ideas on what I can do, to get inworld? Thanks in advance.
  9. Hi there, We've had a live performer cancel a single booking with us, due to rl issues, so I am now looking for a live Rock artist that can do a set at our club shortly. Can anyone recommend a good Rock performer - preferably one we can see on YouTube first, so we can see how they would fit in with our audience, without putting anyone out. :) Thanks in advance! :)
  10. Real life in Cartoon form (except you can fly and teleport in Second Life)...but faster paced, and more intense, due to the 4hour long days. Always remember... Life is what you make of it... and that goes for both lives.
  11. Hi there, I was just wondering... are you currently the Manager of a club / Hangout in SL?.... and if so... what do you actually do in your job role as Manager, on a daily basis, or while events are on in your place? Thanks in advance.
  12. Thanks for all your help and replies everyone. Really appreciated. In the end, I followed instructions given, but that didn't seem to work - so I gave the cache another clear, rebooted my Router, and I am back - and I could detach the rock in my chest. Lol. All is well again. Hurrah!!!! Thank you all for your help!
  13. It wouldn't detach anyway. I was going to do that - and then re-create Bridge in Av Health - but it didn't work. The orange sparkles were the equivelent of the white cloud we had in the old days, when your AV wouldn't rezz.
  14. Hi - I don't know if anyone can advise. I am on Phoenix Firestorm. The last 3 days, I had loads of crashes and lag issues, as have people on the sim. Then it was ok, for the others, but not for me..... I have been stuck as an Orange sparkly cloud on my own viewer, and others see me like this: https://gyazo.com/f2f3795d5fc8b7042aae574993327830 - it looks like I have a rock in my middle. At first I thought it was my necklace, but when I clicked on the orange swirling sparkles, I get this in the edit box: Name: #Firestorm LSL Bridge v2.4 - Description: medium, round landscaping rock - if I try and detach it, I get this message: " Could not put on outfit - The outfit folder contains no clothing, body parts, or attachments - CLOSE ". My inventory is largely missing. When I log in, I get this message: [14:20] Creating the bridge. This might take a moment, please wait. [14:20] Second Life: The attachment has requested a nonexistent point on the avatar. It has been attached to the chest instead. If I try and do anything like go to Test Avatar in Avatar Health - I get this message - "Bridge creation in process, cannot start another. Please wait a few minutes before trying again." Any ideas how I can get me back.... without the Rock in my chest! lol Thanks in advance.
  15. I think you should all come and hang out at the Club I manage. Lol. We are now 10 years old, and a "clean hangout club", and have over 100 unique AV landings a rl day, in our club, ..... but most see the place as empty before they've rezzed properly, or been there more than 8 seconds, and then they leave.... and then IM me saying "Why is your club always empty?" We have parties every weekend, and they are mostly themed too. Our main attendance is the magic hour between the USA and Euro time-zones.... between 2pm - 5pm slt every day... and then... I admit - sometimes our attendance falls outside those times - but we are largely a residential sim, so we don't mind that at all, even if it would be nice to welcome people around the clock. We have live events and DJ-ed events - all are well attended... but.... our club can put people off, by it's name.... which really isn't anything bad at all...it's just how the term in the title has been twisted to mean something different to some people. Anyway the point is, that you have to give places a chance - sometimes you simply pass like ships in the night, the other Avs.... but if you ever feel like hanging out at my Club - drop me a message inworld and I will drop you a LM.
  16. Ahh - phew! Thank you!!!!!! That makes me feel happier! LOL. Better start saving all the stuff I want to keep, from my inventory, like notecards, and photos, though. hehehehee Thank you so much!!!
  17. Higher Level - Chronic Functioning Retrograde Amnesia is what they have labled me with - after spending the first 4 months assuring me that everything will come back. I basically have a 4 - 5 week memory span, unless something is connected with something negative in some way, or upsets me, scares me - or I do something every day, or at least it's repeated or bought up in that time scale. It's been like this since 22nd June 2010 now. It certainly makes life interesting.
  18. I know this may be a very silly question - but I don't think I'd even heard of Onlive SL Go (I could have forgotten, because I actually have rl Amnesia), but what is/was it? - and how will it's absence affect the average resident? I am on an old laptop, running Vista, on a very old Firestorm viewer - I read on the Firestorm blog something about XP computers, and in the other thread about 'how it will affect LL', something about older computers, not being able to run SL after 30th April - so obviously this worries me.... but I don't even know if it affects me, as I've never heard of OnLive SL Go, and certainly not paid anyone for it. Can anyone explain it to me/those of us, who aren't so technically minded. Thank you so much.
  19. I am just decorating my club for an event in a few days time, and there are a lot of transparencies (curtains, venetian masks, and the like) in the club. I keep meaning to ask, but never used so many at once, and they mostly disappear once layered. Is there a way to stop this happening, so all the layers in the decor can be seen and enjoyed? Thanks in advance.
  20. Thank you, everyone for your kindness, and special thanks to Dillion Levenque, and in-world Yvie Caproni, JJdan, and everyone else who supported me emotionally............and of course....my deepest eternal thanks, go especially to Nefertiti - who actually burned and delivered the CD, that enabled me to say Goodbye to him 'in person'. Thank you so very very much. xxxxxx __________________________________________________________________ On Sunday 12th October 2014 at 5:30am GMT, my dear best friend, Richard Zhichao (SecondLife Name) / Baron Von Richard Smith (Facebook Name) / Richard Smith (Real Name), made his last grand exit, and logged off from RL. He slipped away peacefully from this earth, with his Girlfriend, by his side. I miss him so very deeply, but am glad he is no longer suffering. He has been such a good friend over the last 8 years. and I can't believe I will never scream his name at him again when he is cheeky, or roll my eyes at him again when he's silly, or tell him not to shout down the microphone so loudly again, which he did in rl in order to wake my parents up, who were in the next room, so he could say hi,.... or that I won't pick up my phone, and listen to my voice-mail, only to hear nothing but a fart or a burp, and then him laughing his head off, as he hung up!..... Yea... thanks for that Richard! :matte-motes-tongue: Lol. His antics are legendary, and the World is a darker place without him in it. Out of this darkness, and over the last few weeks, I have become friends with his wonderful Sister, and I know this new friendship will continue to grow. This would never have been possible without Richard introducing us. Thank you so very much, Richard. :matte-motes-smile: He loved to bug me, and get me in trouble in SecondLife, and in real life too, and he knew just how to get a reaction from me. He often said to me, after I'd been telling him off, "They broke the mould when they made me", and I would reply super quick "Thank God!" or "Yes! On Purpose!" :matte-motes-tongue: and he'd laugh his head off, and call me a Dink, or a Goofball. I just couldn't stay mad at him. Lol. If it happened in SecondLife, he'd add in public chat "Jinny knows me in real life" and people would contact me privately and say "OMG! - Does he???? - Is he for real????"... when I told him what they said, he would laugh so hard....and of course, I'd end up laughing too. My dearest friend - I hope you can rest easy, in knowing just how much chaos you caused me in both lives. You are, and always will be, my favourite pain in the butt, and I miss you so very very very much......but I know you will be out there, winding everyone up, and creating clouds out of your farts up in Heaven, as you laugh your head off, while watching the other Angels try to land on them. Lol. Rest in Peace, ya Whackadoodle! You truly are the best, and it's been an honour to know you, spend time with you, and call you my best friend. :matte-motes-smile: Well......(((((hugs)))))......I guess this is it, Buddy. I can't think of any other way to sign this off, other than in the only way that we have always ended any time together, over all these years.......so here goes... *takes a deep breath..................*smiles, and waves, whilst shouting*......."Goooooddddbbbyyyeeeeeee Goooooooffffuusssssssssss!!!!!!!!!" ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Sunday 12th October 2014 ~ 5:30am GMT Sweet dreams, my dear, dear friend, Richard. You will always be missed. @>'-,-'-,--- xxxxxx
  21. Thank you all, who took the time to reply to my plea for help. I have emailed Nefertiti, but I also want to thank her publicly, for her amazing kindness. What she did for my best friend and I, was the single, most kindest, and most important thing I have ever needed to happen. As soon as I saw her email, that she had hand delivered my CD to the Hospice today, and that they had said that they would play it for him, I sobbed heavily with relief. When the tears stopped, I felt a sense of peace that I haven't felt, since I heard the news of his rapidly declining health, a few weeks ago. Because of this wonderful, kind, generous lady, doing what she called "a random act of kindness", I have gained so much comfort. Thank you Nefertiti, I can find solace in knowing, that that he now knows that I haven't forgotten him in his final days, but most importantly of all, I can carry on, knowing that I got to say goodbye to my best friend. Thank you so very very much Nefertiti. You are indeed, a true Angel. Thank you. ((((((Hugs))))))
  22. Nefertiti - thank you soooo very very much. I have sent you a message inworld. I hope you get it ok. Thank you.
  23. I know this is a strange post - but I need to reach out to the wider SL community, as there are a lot of USA -ers in SL. I have a special friend who I met in SL, and have become best friends with in both lives. He is very very ill and in a Hospice in Arizona, USA. They think it's a matter of days for him - and I promised him a CD message talking of a few memories - as he's not well enough to be on a computer. His Girlfriend is not handling it well (obviously), but said she would play him the CD, as we've been friends for the last 8years and I'm devastated to be losing him. I live in the UK, and while I will do it - it will cost a fortune to express send the CD there. So my brother suggested I ask - Does anyone know of a company in Arizona, that would offer an immediate burn and send/courier service, to either their house, or the Hospice, if I emailed a sound file to them? I am obviously happy to pay - as this is as much about speed as cost too. Thank you
  24. Sorry this post is so long - I just need to get it out my head, and hope that someone can give me some advice. I've had this friend for nearly all my SL. He lives in another country, and we've been friends now for over 7 years. I consider him my best friend. He has been there for me, through many hardships of mine over the years, and picked me up when I have been down, and never left me when I had a breakdown last year, after an accident, where as all my RL friends did. He to me - is a total nut - but he's my truest and my very best friend. He admitted from the start, that he wasn't interested in romance, as he had a RL GF, and that was fine by me, and actually that honesty, was one of the reasons why I kept talking to him. Over the years, we've had many laughs, he's got me into trouble, and he's been a loveable pest, but I wouldn't change a second of it. Our friendship moved to RL after a few months,and then via Facebook and Skype, and I also have an aquaintency with his GF, who I got the impression was concerned about my presence in his life, in the early days, but I reassured her that I knew of her, and have no interest other than friendship in him, and we are good now. I've never actually met him or his girlfriend in real life. Although I've threatened to travel there to slap him, for his cheekiness! Lol. We've had pretty much daily contact since we moved the friendship to RL. I've always known he was ill with something that may eventually take his life. And over the last year, his health has been in decline. It's been a worry - but it's something I have held in the back of my mind. Only none of his previous episodes, have been so serious, as this time around. He's been quieter the last 10 days, but had been posting his usual silly messages to my Wall, until 5 days ago. And then another SL friend had a RL passing in her life, and my attention turned to her. I posted on my Wall a tribute for her situation - and then a while after, my best friend's girlfriend, added a comment at how beautifully worded it was - and then she added 'btw he's been in hospital the last 3 weeks and isn't recovering like he used to'. I was so shocked. I literally sat there, gasping for air, with my mouth wide open for a few seconds. I messaged her immediately, and found out that actually, he was now critical. He no longer can communicate. I couldn't believe it. I am honestly on an emotional roundabout. And the bad side is that I am fighting the feelings of outright anger towards his girlfriend for not letting me know sooner, when she knows our relationship. I don't blame him at all, as I know he didn't tell me as I am going through a really rough patch in RL at the moment, so he wouldn't have wanted to bother me - he never likes me to fuss over his health... though he bugs me about mine frequently. Lol. That was 3 days ago now. I have since found out that he is in a major health crisis. He can no longer speak due to oxygen masks, and stuff, is in Intensive Care, and cannot use the computer any more.... his prognosis is unknown. The last 3 days, I have pretty much sat staring at the computer, until I'm literally rocking with tiredness, while waiting desperately for updates (which I'm thankfully getting now, thanks to his sister, who also was not told and is just as shocked), and I'm constantly bursting into tears. I should have gone out to get groceries, and actually I had a RL date tomorrow, which I've now cancelled, because I am worried about stepping away from the computer and missing some update. I simply feel so....grief stricken. And the people I've talked to in RL - don't take me seriously because ours has been a online only relationship, so I've stopped telling them, because I can't deal with their reaction. I feel so helpless and isolated. All I've been doing for him, is posting messages and jokes to his Facebook and Skype, trying to be as 'ordinary' as possible, in case he makes it back to the computer, and can look back and see the messages. I can't go to the USA, even though I have his home address, and all his contact details, and he doesn't want visitors anyway, even if he was fit enough for some - and in any case, I feel it would be more than unfair at this stage, on all of his RL family, if I suddenly appeared in RL. And he and I never said we wanted to meet in RL either - even though we've sent each other RL mail, and know all about each other's lives. The reality is... I could lose him - and sooner rather than later. I'm devastated, and I just don't know how to handle it. He could do with a miracle right now - even if it's just so I can kick his butt one last time. Any advice, on dealing with this?
