  1. I have to back up the "read your notecards" concept. I usually do, but sometimes I don't. I had a new swim HUD for the past two years that annoyed me. I could float above the surface, but I'd sink under when swimming. After randomly glancing through the notecard recently, I learned that not only can you change your z-offset for swimming on the surface, but it also told you how!

  2. Uhhhh ... that's the point. Out of sight, out of mind. Who cares if he's listening to your conversations? If it's public, then anyone can. No big deal.

    If you want this person out of your life, then you have to remove all traces of him. The other (obvious) answer would be to find new places to hang out.

    Aside from the answers already given, there isn't much more you can do. Were you hoping someone would offer to go down there and threaten to beat him up?

  3. [updated] Unscheduled Maintenance

    Posted by Status Desk on April 26th, 2012 at 03:23 pm PDT

    [updated 3:23pm PDT 26 April 2012] Services are still undergoing maintenance - logins, billing, and other issues may occur. Some regions may be down intermittently. Please continue to refrain from rezzing no-copy objects, or transacting L$ or land. At this time,  we do not have an estimated time of repair. Please continue to monitor this  blog for updates.


    I've been lucky enough to log in, but I get disconnected any time I try to TP anywhere.

  4. When a Vampire, furry, dragon, tiny, fairy, elf or mer approaches me to talk, they talk to me in a normal fashion. Two adults conversing in a sim together. I have never been approached by any of these types of avatars in a non-RP sim and have them be "in character" with me.

    Not all, but a much, much higher percentage of child avatars will speak to me "in character." This is the only problem I, personally, have. I'm not involved in adult-rated activities in SL, but that doesn't mean I want to be forced into "your" roleplay.

    If I were to roleplay, I would keep it to my designated rp sims and/or keep it to like-minded individuals outside of said sim(s). I don't find that narrow minded, I find that respectful.

    When someone with a child avie approaches me with a question and does not role-play being a child, I will treat them with the same respect they've shown me. This works with any avatar type, though.

    But, regardless of anyone's personal reasons for not wanting to do business with or have child avatars on their land, that's their choice just as much as it's the choice of the person behind the avatar to portray a child. I could argue that it's equally narrow-minded not to respect the views of an individual on land that they have paid rights for, or to insinuate that they are not as enlightened as you. It comes down to preference and taste in a situation regarding choice, and I don't believe either side of the fence is more open or narrow minded for their tastes.

  5. I don't see how your payment arrangement has anything to do with any perceived rights you feel you have in SL. The people you mentioned are paying for the land you want to use. How does your membership trump theirs in any way? The way you portray your avatar is 100% choice. You are not a child, you are just portraying one. I get that it feels similar, but it's not equal to discrimination against someone for immutable qualities. I kind of see it as someone who wouldn't like you for your musical tastes. If I don't let you play your CDs in my car because I don't like that type of music, am I discriminating against you? Sure, you chose to buy those CDs (because you wanted to) and you want to play them, but I paid for my car, I'm driving and I can't stand your taste in music. My car, my rules. You can play your music in your own car, or with people who also like your style of music.

    The prefab home creator is a little different, but there are plenty of other merchants out there that actually like having business. This one clearly does not. I don't see it as discrimination, but I definitely see it as poor business sense. A sale is a sale, and it shouldn't matter who buys it.

  6. I can live with huge folders. The addition of multiple layers itself has opened the door for pieces that I rarely used because they were only sold in one layer. Options are extremely important to me because I love piecing together my own outfits, in fact, I spend a majority of my SL shopping and figuring out ways to assemble different pieces together. It's a big disappointment to me to find out that layered tops in an outfit are permanently stuck together. I mean, I could totally use that tanktop by itself, or even with some other top I have laying around in my inventory.

    Having the "Outfits" feature just makes this all even more awesome.


    Ok, I'm rambling and falling asleep, so I'm not sure if this was even on topic anymore. In conclusion: OPTIONS!
