  1. Many many many years ago LL sent object looking bots to gather land data so you could always tell what it was and what it was doing. I forgot about that until you posted this.
  2. ... and sometimes it doesn't detach at all until you've logged off and then on again. This is nothing new and has been happening for years. In fact, even putting things on takes awhile too. For some reason every hairstyle I own by Tableau Vivant and Taketomi takes a very long time to find its way to my head. So I only wear them when I'm not pressed for time.
  3. Linden Labs is based in the U.S. but I disagree that most of the people who are in-world are Americans. I've met people from all over Europe and South America in the past 13 years I've been a resident. I think as a whole there aren't as many residents who log on as there used to be but it's still pretty diverse based upon those who do log on. Logging on to SL shouldn't make you feel as though you aren't welcome or "stranger" as you described. Remind those who are sending you notecards or IM's or banning you that you don't understand or don't speak English well. We all sometimes forget that while English is universal, not everyone has a need to comprehend it. There are so many translators available to us that it isn't a huge deal to translate into a language that you do use proficiently.
  4. It's all really very simple and you should stop wasting everyone's time on something you refuse to solve on your own when you ARE truly the only one who can solve it.
  5. Sorry, but still creepy and maybe a little weird too. lol πŸ˜†
  6. ALL items from both creators I referenced are 100% top-notch no matter who (or what) is modeling them in their ads. That wasn't my point, but thank you for sharing the tip about flagging on MP and about trying a demo first. ☺️
  7. I mean the difference between these attached pics. Both are great but the ad with 3 models is an SL avatar. The other ad with 1 model is NOT a SL avatar but a model from a program like Blender or something similar. Considering that we, as SL consumers, pay for these goods sold in SL, the creators/designers should also help others in the SL by using a viewer platform to take their pics, using a SL model or any other SL avatar (including themselves) in the pics and by using poses created by other SL creators. It just more sense to me to keep the SL economy going by doing that. Just my opinion (which sort of got off the morph topic - sorry).
  8. I think most morphs are creepy looking. If they're used to sell items then it's misleading. I also don't like creators using Blender models in ads. I understand it's quicker and less hassle than using an SL model or avatar but we should support each other and that doesn't happen any longer.
  9. Amazing what you can find if you just search. πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ
  10. I don't understand. Why would you choose either one of those just so that your second life sucks worse than your first life? If I had to choose, then I'd really choose to uninstall Second Life if I had to play SL with either of the two scenarios you listed. That's my final offer. 😁
  11. You can also contact SL magazines such as Eclipse, L'homme, VersuS and many others to work in the sales and marketing field. They're always looking for people to sell ad space in their magazines.
  12. That chart looks glorious but I'm still not buying it. I'm not complaining, but I just don't buy it based upon what my wait time was back in Nov/Dec '18. Maybe things are better and I haven't posted a ticket so I can't really argue that fact. However, I still stand by what I posted earlier about ticket response being only a few hours back a number of years ago. In my experience, it was not worse then. Listen, I finally got the (abandoned) land I wanted, so SLife is good for now. Next time, I'll use live chat so I won't stress myself out. πŸ€ͺ
  13. I agree with the OP on this too. I'm basing this on how well customer support was years ago when you'd post a ticket. A few hours was all you had to wait back then and now, yes, it's a few weeks. I contacted them a few months ago because a resident placed a house & furnishings on abandoned land next to my parcel. When LL finally contacted me over a week later they explained that Gov. Linden (lol) forgot to turn on the Auto Return on the land. Needless to say, I offered to buy the land but had to wait yet another week for a reply to that. However, in that instance, I met a Linden in-world to complete the purchase and she was so helpful and awesome. I did mention to her the disappointing turnaround in customer service tickets though and she made it seem like it was a temporary thing. Apparently not. I will say that I forgot about live chat and will try that next time. But still, that's no excuse for such a long time to address a ticket.
  14. The Kominsky Method, Making A Murderer, Cheers, Frasier, Star Trek, Twilight Zone, many documentaries on musical groups like the Eagles and the Doors, also my personal favorite is a fascinating documentary about the Roosevelt's (Teddy, Franklin & Eleanor) that I've watched 3 times so far.
  15. Mainly text chat since I feel that voice is a bit more personal and I don't want to get too personal with most people in SL. When I used to runway model in SL, though, I wished more people would use voice to give us instructions as it would have saved many hours in rehearsals. I guess it depends on what you're doing. Regular chit chat = text. Work related issues = voice.
  16. A suggestion would be to watch some of these videos from The Drax Files which include interviews with people who've done things and created things etc. in SL. It'll give you some insight into the possibilities that exist and await you. Here's a link.
  17. Do you recall the windlight you used when you recorded your GIF?
  18. I know exactly what you're describing and I feel for you cuz I've been there too. But once you move the angle of the cam, you're going to have to adjust the wind light too unfortunately.
  19. Thank you for summing up my sentiments exactly. Lol
  20. I tried very hard to use and like the 2.0 viewer and just couldn't. That's exactly why I switched to Firestorm.
  21. No one actually says it but you can hear the relief in THEIR voices that I am really a female.
  22. I personally love Firestorm. It may not be The best but the support for it is undeniably very good. I don't think I've ever had a question or issue that wasn't solved by someone in the in-world support group quickly. I've been using it for years with no major issues, even with updates and they have some nice features that the original viewer doesn't have. Get a few ideas for viewers and check them all out to see which one you like the best as you may find another you like better.
  23. It could have been a private rental place since there were quite a few of those but I do remember rentals like that and how cheap they were. I had rentals for a very long time in SL (Reddevil Rentals) but mine were a bit more per month. Inflation, you know. πŸ˜†
