  1. Yep. There is a certain eccentric "artist" in SL who's been banned from all over the grid, suspended numerous times by LL and must have at least 50 alts by now.
  2. My sentiments exactly. As I mentioned, I read that a long time ago (on the forum). I, personally, have lost count of how many alts I've had over the years. And they've been for totally legit reasons. I'm not a griefer or up to no-good. They have mostly been for testing as I build or set up new galleries. Whenever I need to test how another resident will interact with something, I've created an alt. Most have been deactivated. I'm sure the staff has better things to do, but if they take notice of a certain account, they apparently make note of it.
  3. I did read a long time ago, that if you get up to about 10 alts, LL takes notice as that could indicate a user is into griefing.
  4. Pretty cool to come across Philip Rosedale. A great mind and inventor. We owe it all to his vision. I can imaging he'd want to step in from time to time and see how his baby is doing. ❤️
  5. Oh, the point I forgot to make was that Sansar is not a replacement for SL. It's an entirely different kind of site and experience. Most SLers don't seem to be interested in it. I have an account there and love it but it doesn't replace SL. It doesn't work like SL. You go there to "experience" what talented 3D creators have put together. It's awesome. But no, it has nothing to do with SL.
  6. Hi Raa21 and welcome to SL! Though your first social places may be inactive right now, probably due to the Halloween season, it can also be that your friends have branched out and discovered all the other places there are to discover and enjoy in SL. SL is a large place with lots to see and do. It is not dying. I've been there for 10 years and still enjoy seeing what newcomers dream up to build and create. Please don't leave SL thinking it's dying just because things have changed where you've been hanging out. Start to TP around and see what else is out there. People come and go, let go of land and move to another place. People also change avatars. Your friends may have left SL - they just opened new accounts. As you become more accustomed to Second Life, you'll start to realize all of your options. If you like, I can share with you inworld some places to visit. Are you into art or music? Would you like to meet inworld?
  7. I have a question about two groups: 1. I asked another user for use of of his group and he was happy to relinquish it to me because he appreciated what I would use it for. I was very grateful to him. And I always make sure to have my alt join so I don't lose it. However, I was delayed in using it and when I finally went to use it I found I no longer had it and another person was now using it! How could this happen?? And she will not let it go. I feel so bad about the original owner giving it up just for it to be snatched away from me. Do we lose groups if we go back to basic temporarily? I can't see how she could have taken the group name otherwise. 2. I want to use the name of a group for a venue that my alt used 9 years ago. I don't think she actually created a group for it back then, but I did a search and it doesn't come up as a group today. But when I try to create it, I get a message saying that it's already in use. How can a group be in use but not showing up anywhere? Searches say it doesn't exit! Am I going nuts?
  8. Where do I sign up for an email notification?? I didn't see that option. I keep hearing about the available houses after they're all gone.
  9. I GOT IT! Tis fixed! Here was my "disconnect": I thought the "Hover Height" on the Appearance Pie Menu was the same as the Hover Height within the "Edit Shape" box. It's not. It was the setting in my Edit Shape box that was off - set to 60. I set it to 50 and now I'm standing on the ground (at .137) and sitting properly (only minor adjustment needed). Finally, it all comes together! Thank you to everyone who offered suggestions.
  10. BTW - after all else failed, I took the suggestion that seemed to work for someone else. I deleted my user settings in case of corruption and rebooted to create a new folder. That didn't work. No effect at all. I still walk on the ground but sit inside of furniture. No, my AO isn't on. It's not that kind of "sinking". This is literally being positioned too low for furniture. This is mind numbing. I'm totally out of ideas. And the problem only exists with this avatar. And I've now wiped out all my saved logins. :::groans as she prays she wrote them all down somewhere::::
  11. Hi Susan - It's been a while, but are your hover settings still good? I've had this hover problem for just over a year now. None of the suggestions give apply. You said you set your "slider back to 50". What slider do you have that measures to 50? Both my Appearance and my Preferences sliders go from -2.00 to 2.00. In order for me to stand directly on the floor or ground, they both have to be set to -0.484. And I have to use one of the sliders to raise myself up out of furniture. This is a pain an I can't find the answer. So, what slider did you use that goes to 50?
  12. Hello all. It's been almost a year since I last posted this problem. The problem still remains. I've just given up sitting on things. lol I mostly stand around, TP around or dance. On the rare occasion that I sit, I just have to take time to use the "Adjust" menu in the furniture to get myself out of the furniture and up into the seat. To answer previous questions: No, I don't use a shoe base. I wear mesh shoes on my mesh body. No shoebase required - usually. Even if I did wear a shoebase, it wouldn't put me meters into the air. No, I haven't changed my avatar shape in three years (when I bought and configured my Maitreya mesh body.) This problem occurred a little over a year ago. I tried resetting my avatar to default. When Appearance/Hover is at zero, I am hovering about a foot-height over the ground (floor, whatever, where ever. No megaprims.) With both Prefs/ Hover and Appearance/Hover set to zero, I'm just missing the ground and when I sit, I'm levitating far above the seat - any seat. I might not have mentioned before, that this happened suddenly and with only this avatar. I have other avatars and they are fine. They don't have this issue. I know I have to look elsewhere for the problem, but I have no clue where else to look for the problem. Can I get Linden tech support on the phone about this, maybe?
  13. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem conn3cted at all to hover height. I keep quick prefs open so I can do a quick fix when I sit on things, dance, etc., and I only started needing to do this in the last few months. If my hover height is set to where it needs to be for standing, it's way too low when I sit on anything. If I use my hover height to fix my sit position, I'm hovering high in the air when I stand up. Somehow they have gotten out of sync. I need to figure out how to get them back in sync. This seems to be a programming error. I don't wear shoe bases.
  14. This seems to be a settings issue. Several months ago, something happened with my account to corrupt settings of some sort and I've been suffering with this problem since. When I'm standing, my hover height is adjusted so that I just touch the floor. No problem. BUT - when I sit on anything, furniture, any type of stationary or animation poseball - just sitting on anything.....my avatar winds up lower than it should be. Way lower - down inside of the furniture. We normally have to tweak our sits, but this is way beyond tweaking. I have to use my hover slider to get myself up to the correct position on a piece of furniture, or out of the floor to the right dancing height on a poseball, etc. THEN I have to re-lower my hover height to the floor when I stand up again. This isn't supposed to happen and it never has before in the almost 9 years I've been in SL. This is a new problem that I don't know how to fix since I don't know what went out of whack. So basically, my "sit" height stopped matching my stand height. Are there any programmers out there who've seen this before and have an idea how it can be fixed? Thanks in advance!
  15. Yes, I wasn't having a problem standing. I was using the pie menu from my avatar. But that wasn't good enough. I needed to know WHY my stand button had disappeared. I'm used to clicking on it and can't stand when things just stop functioning.
