  1. I joined back in the old "legacy last name" days. Picked "Shu" from the list as it sounded Asian and back then, young me was a huge fan of Asia (travelled there a lot). With my RL first name being Michael, I thought about an alternate version of Michael for the first name - and ended up using Mikey. Annoyingly. Regretting this ever since lol. And pissed at LL that the promised legacy name change option, they announced like almost 2 yeas ago, will probably never come. 😞
  2. Okay, and now in English. What is this thread about? lol.
  3. As a business owner myself I can only shake my head at this. My groups would always be free and if I would spread gifts, they would be free as well and actual gifts, with no "hidden" join-group-and-pay-then-get-free-gift catches. In my opinion, the store of that group you called out is going to have a hard time doing business with such an attitude.
  4. I heard my name! Someone wants to practise Fung Shu? Gimme call! πŸ˜„
  5. Even if a little late to the party, gonna share my story. This (above) is exactly what happened to me today. I am one of those people who run profitable businesses in SL and thus frequently used to cash out big numbers. But due to RL I was absent for some weeks until now. Came back today to cash out a good amount from my bank avatar again. Only to find out AFTER converting my money to USD, that after accepting ridiculous ToS, I now also have to basically "strip naked" with ID photos, RL selfie photo of myself, address, phone number, what not, only to be able to cash out my money. As
  6. Was going to ask, I assume 150USD per project, yes? Because 150L$ is.. πŸ€£πŸ˜…πŸ˜­
  7. I'm sorry but to be frank and honest... LightNina is quite right. From my perspective as a successful Entrepreneur and Investor I have to strongly question your post. You start your thread by stating a few conditions: - You're looking to earn L$, but you're new and have 0 SL skills - You'd prefer a job where you can work with no set hours, just "here and there" - You're wanting to become a business partner with someone but ask for them to come up with 100% funds on their own risk, all the way until the business is running well I can't help wondering, as LightNina said so well,
  8. TBH non fantasy / gorean medieval RP in general seems super low in SL. Years back I had a rp alt for that kind of RP and I tried hard for a long time to find a proper sim without any fantasy elements. It was almost impossible and I didn't have the funds or found right partners to start an own project with, so I dropped out. I would be surprised if it was any different now.
  9. If she is, then she just proved the worst advertising ever. πŸ˜„ No seriously, I will never understand people like this. People who want to sell a product or service and then give 0 effort in Marketing. It doesn't take a degree to figure that threads such as the one here won't push your business...
  10. Not entirely correct, you also have to eat if you want to produce anything. Whether harvesting something, crafting something, you need energy for that as well. @Kylerra Nayar: Another system, similar to G&S but with a realistic and non Gorean approach is DFS. Then of course, but expensive and more into the Lifestyle corner like LIFE2, there is BeYou (or something like that), as well.
  11. Hey there, as a little bit of an OCD guy, I am wondering why my main avie has 2 sub folders in his calling cards folder, which I can not delete. Which means that consequently I can't delete the entire calling card folder, either. And that is really bothering the OCD me. Main avie: Because it seems related to my main only, as my alt avatar has all calling cards directly in the main folder and thus doesn't even have these sub folders at all. So I can easily delete the entire calling card folder on him. Alt avie: Anyone any idea what to do, do remove these old subf
  12. I can very vividly remember my first days in SL. In RL I have always been interested in business and economics. Consequently, the moment I joined SL back in 2006, my first thoughts were "How can I make money to sustain myself in here? How can I found a business, trade, etc.?" I figured out quickly, that I had no clue how. So I acted like I would in RL and helped myself. In a veeeeery unique way. πŸ˜„ I used the build tool and somehow managed to build myself a simple signpost out of a stick block and a flat block. You know, like the plywood signs people often hold up during demonstrations.
  13. Now about the groups: Without going into my own opinion about that change, there is however a simply solution to this. A solution I have been using myself for years now: Just create yourself a 2nd avatar and name it "groupavie" or so. Then only keep the most important groups (for store gifts, yadayadaya) on your main account and outsource any other group to that alt avie. You will still get the groupnotes via email from that avie and can then login and check the note itself. Would it be easier if we just had enough slots on our main avie? Sure. But LL decided we don't, so deal with
  14. That was actually the first thing I did after it began happening. I cleared my entire browsere history (well that was about time to do again anyway), including all Cookies. I still have that problem occasionally... πŸ™‚
