  1. Yes, this does the trick! So obvious and simple. I am low vision. I was starting to get angry but the problem is solved now.
  2. These links were very useful. Thank you. Lingering question: If you open a world map of mainland continents you can see, arranged in a grid pattern, names of places--I call them communities. Is each of these communities one region??
  3. I had a question on the relationship between tier, prims, and land purchase but the following question got lost in the thread, so I'm re-posting a specific question . . . What is a Region? For example, I live in Fumb. Is that a Region? How do I find the boundaries of a Region? I need to know this because I must buy in the same Region to utilize new prims (in the same region). And, BTW, "region" and "sim" are synonymous, right? Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
  4. Resident Posts: 22 Topics: 11 Registered: 01-25-2010 Re: Basic Prim and Tier Question [ New ] 01-25-2012 11:31 AM Thank you for these helpful answers. They are appreciated. I'm a little confused about the term "region." I know that my community is Fumb and I know that this is Mainland. But does my region have a name? And how do I find out the boundaries of my region? And "sim" is synonymous with "region," right? I see now that I need to know these things because I must buy future property in the same region if I want to use prims for my property (in my region). Thank you!
  5. Hi, I collect paintings and sculpture and I'm out of prims. If I increase my tier, will I automatically receive a new prim allowance based on sqm or do I have to buy property first? If I do buy property can I use my prims on my original land, where I'm doing collecting, regardless of the location of that new land that's giving me prims? Or I can only use those prims on the new land? Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
  6. @Randall Ahren Thanks for this advice. It worked perfectly, and I have bought land.
  7. I think that LL's Viewer 2.0 is very clean, with a nice mix of minimalism and functionality. But, for me, it has one flaw that makes this viewer a deal-breaker: the failure of Profiles to load. When I want to meet people, I IM. I need to scan lots of Profiles to find likeminded souls. Oh, I wish LL would bring back the rt. click pie chart that'd snap open in one second. . . For my OS MacX Snow Leopard, Singularity and Phoenix both crash constantly. Too bad because Singularity's Radar is WONDERFUL. Imprudence has good stablity and lots of Viewer 1.0 features and solves the Profile failure to load problem. But it's not as efficient with input devices as Viewer 2.0. So I'm going to live with using two viewers: Viewer 2.0 for working around the house alone and Imprudence for meeting people . . . BTW, I was an "immersionist." I was very distraught when LL removed full screen capacity. A full screen without reminders of RL contributed to SL's magic. Imprudence has this toggle feature, but it has a glitch. My mouse cursor continually blinks or disappears. I've used Apple bluetooth and wired mice and swapped out a MS mouse to no avail. Too bad. Maybe I'll check Imprudence forums for a solution. I'd enjoy hearing some of your comments and experiences as well as suggestions. Is there any strong third-party viewer that I should yet try?
  8. Yeah, yeah, I know it's kinda crazy, but I want to max full value on my monthly tier. Do you have 16 s.q.m. for sale? I'll give you a good price. How many prims would I get? (If any :-)
  9. The original avatar name system worked well. It could have been improved by enabling residents to change their first name (subject to it never having been used by another resident) for a modest fee (say US$10). It was that simple. Yes! Yes! Yes! I understand progress. But I don't understand REGRESS.
  10. I just tried Singularity. One more chance and, sadly, I might have to give it the boot. More on this in a second. LL's Viewer 2.0's Profile's failure to load is a deal-breaker for this viewer. 2.0 is just fine--and has notable improvements--for working around the house, but if you only IM (like me), then Profiles are critical for social ineraction. I could use 2.0 around the house and Singularity for talking but, nah, I want to find one favorite viewer . . . Singularity's Radar is WONDERFUL! It loads a tiny bit slower than LL 1.0 Profile, but has much more information (a whole AV list by distance) but loads OK. The problem is that on my Mac OS X Snow Leopard, the Singularity software crashes evert time I log on within about 10 minutes. And if I toggle Full Screen, it crases the OS, my display turns into snow, I lose my mouse and keyboard function (no display), and must do an improper shutdown. I changed a bunch of preferences. I will uninstall and do a clean install without config and see if I still get crashes. If so, on to checking out Phoenix and Firestorm . . .
  11. @Peewee: Re: the running (flying) AV, thanks for the explanation--the first I've heard that makes sense. Yes, sometimes you can accomplish more by keeping your hands OFF the keyboard! It's kind of counter-intuitive. I just downloaded, installed, and took my first look at Singularity. WOW! I haven't started playing yet. I see she's staying very close to LL's TOS, which means it'll probably be around for awhile. I'm going to have to write down her name--a worthy SL resident to send some Lindens.
  12. I can understand reasons for that. And I do know, from what others have said, that my case was resolved. But short of that, how about a simple "This closes trouble ticket number X." Instead of being left in the dark . . . It was actually Residents who gave me information about what LL did in my case--but not the end result re: the griefer. I just want simple communication.
  13. Thanks for your explanations. I did go to Profile < Edit Profile < New Display Name and, happily, I could change kurt7D8 Avon to Kurt7D8 Avon! Yay! I'm so happy! I'm still a little confused though. Sorry if you already explained one of these items. First, by "username" are we talking about the log-on to SL name? I used my AV name as my username, so my username and display name are the same. Does it matter? Second, a Profile comment said that the display name is the AV name. That's confusing. Why not just call it the avatar's name? Now on display I have two names, my old one and my new one. Do you think I'm just waiting for the old one to be purged? There was a note to that effect.
  14. I'm going to check out Singularity. From what you and another resident said, this viewer may also have a de facto undo function where you can return an object (such as the wall of your house) to its original position. If I still prefer SL Viewer, I could still use the other for specific functions. Thanks for the recommend.
  15. I thought that with the new naming system, that maybe LL would cut some slack and allow a name edit. Not even for $L -- it's just a fee. My name is kurt7D8 Avon. I thought I was slick. "7D8" is the year I began teaching. "7D8" is base 16 (hexadecimal) for "2008," the year I retired. But given that I was an English teacher for 30 years and made my first name lower case is driving me crazy! I almost want an ALT only so that I can change "k" to "K." You think I should contact LL or am I wasting my time?? And what's up with the name change policy??
  16. I' ve received valuable unpaid assistance from SL Residents on this forum. The same cannot be said of LL's customer service. I am paying $600.00 U.S. per year for tier, and I want better service than this: A. My first request for help soon after I was born took two months to respond -- long after the problem had been solved. B. Just in the past week, I spoke with Chat re: a griefer problem. I was told "Fill out an AR." Duh! I was looking for more advice and pointers in ADDITION to that. I did file the AR. Through the SL grapevine I did learn that a Linden was at my property and identified the griefer objects and removed them. Cool. But I never received a response from my AR. And this for $600.00??
  17. Sl is a place of great magic and beauty. Here are two gripes that compromise the SL experience. Regardless of Viewer, fairly often, when I am walking or flying, I lose input control of my AV. Off he walks or flies while I watch helplessly. Sometimes, AV snaps back to origninal position. If I try TP SL crashes and I have a "forced quit." This is bad news, akin to Win95 BSOD. Particularly bad news when you are doing work, have a lot of stuff set up, and have to start all over again. No undo. I have sculptures, paintings and many decorative objects that I've added to my Villa. As careful as I try to be, I periodically remove a wall of my house rather than the object on the wall. Then I have to de-rezz my house, then search with my cursor to delete the 30 or so other items that are now suspended in space, then re-rezz my house and carefully put back 30 objects. This is seven hours wasted based on one itty bitty delete. Why is there no undo? Maybe LL can take up a collection, so they can code one into the viewer . . .
  18. Hi, I'd like to give you edit privileges, and whenever I need help with a problem, you can advise me or edit at my property. For example, I just mistakenly de-rezzed part of a sky platform. I cannot edit the new missing platform for a perfect fit -- as soon as one angle goes in alignment, another goes out. . . We could agree on a price per job. Edit rights on my property? Trust is the name of the game. kurt7D8 Avon
  19. Hi, I am a loner in RL and SL! However, I still need friends. I just prefer interaction with individuals and not groups. I can't remember the iteration of the previous viewer -- Hey, I'm 58 -- but it used to be a snap to Rt. Clk. + Profile and that Profile would snap into place in less than a second. In a couple minutes I could read four or five Profiles and find out if I wanted to IM. NOW, in the present Viewer, the Profile takes minutes to appear, fills up 1/3 of my screen, and that takes more minutes to load. Usually I give up. kurt7D8 Avon if you want to check my Profile -- good luck!
  20. Error. Moderator, could you please transfer this post to Land Forum?? That's where I tried to post it. Sorry.
  21. Hi,        I didn't want to cross post, but some on General Forum suggested I post here too.         Hi,   I need help neutralizing a griefer. 5/8 of my parcels are compromised and useless. Most of my monthly tier money is for nothing . . . I am paying 1/8 sim.   G. uses 4 nearby conversation windows that fill 1/3 of my display with following: GREIFER SHOUTS: SPAM SPAM GRIEF GRIEF . . . etc.   G. introduces extreme lag. I have to use Mac Snow Leopard Force Quit to shut down SL. Inputs (mouse, keyboard) are nearly useless.   G. has commandeered my About Land Objects, Sounds and Access. G. has given permission to edit terrain, object entry, run scripts, allow public access. G. has GREYED out all my menus and blocked my access.   Since I have 8 parcels, I have 8 About Land configs. On some, I can access About Land and clear a menu. But it doesn't matter. G. can toggle my settings on and off. Even if all my menu settings are good and G. is present by virtue of the GRIEFER dialog boxes, I must Force Quit SL anyway.   The extreme lag problem is caused by the G. and is not on my end. Above GL in my sky structures I have no issues. In 2 parcels on GL, no issues.   I cannot report abuse. There's no way to access G's identity.   For a coder who's been in-world a few years, I'm happy to pay a L$ fee to neutralize . . . Search for: kurt7D8 avon and IM me. Need some privacy. We'll work something out, and I'll give you permissions – IF I can.   Or, if I'm missing something obvious, let me know, and I'll do it.  
  22. This is a reply to everyone who commented. I tried floating it to the top. Re: the offensive hate speech N******F*****, I did file a AR using Governor Linden as placeholder. Thanks for that advice. I would appreciate it if some of you who commented could also file an AR. This is in everyone's interest. SL is a world of magic and great beauty. There are sims designated for aggression but they're not good enough for some griefers--who want to hurt innocent people and destroy property and money. The offending areas are: Fumb 31, 152, 95 Fumb 16, 183, 96 Fumb 100, 69, 63 Fumb 14, 165, 96 Fumb 62, 47, 61
  23. Thanks for N******F****** tip. Re: mute, there is no AV to click on. There are only dialog boxes and extreme lag. Also, these boxes will not show up in a screen shot. Aren't the dialog windows objects? There must be some way to identify them. Can you think of another way? Thanks again.
  24. Many thanks. I have checked all eight parcels. I am owner. I am not part of any group. I don't think my password has been compromised or griefer would have spent/bought $L. I will also post on Land Forum. Good idea. I didn't want to cross-post. Thanks again.
  25. I use a large font because I am visually handicapped. I need help neutralizing a griefer. 5/8's of my parcels are compromised and useless. My monthly tier is mostly wasted. I have 1/8 sim. Griefer uses 4 "nearby conversation" windows that fill 1/3 of my display with following: NIGGERFAGGOT SHOUTS: SPAM SPAM GRIEF GRIEF SPAM SPAM GRIEF GRIEF, etc. G. causes extreme lag. My mouse and keyboard inputs are nearly useless. I have to use Snow Leopard Force Quit to shutdown SL. Sometimes even that has a long lag and I need to reboot my computer. This lag is not on my end because two of my parcels are normal and there are no issues on structures above GL. Griefer has commandeered my About Land Objects, Sounds, and Access. G. has given permission to edit terrain, object entry, run scripts, allow public access and turn on voice. G. has greyed out most of my About Land menus and blocked my access. Since I have 8 parcels, I have 8 different About Land configs. A couple of menus I've been able to access and change. But it doesn't matter. Griefer can toggle settings. Even when G. is present and menus are "correct" I have to Force Quit SL anyway. I cannot report abuse. There's no way to access G.'s Profile. If anyone has a solution I've missed let me know. If not, and you are a coder who's been in-world a few years, I'm happy to pay a $L fee to neutralize. Search me at: kurt7D8 avon and IM me. We'll have some privacy. We'll figure out a fee and I'll give you permissions -- IF I can. I find "NIGGERFAGGOT" extremely offensive. RL has enough heterosexual white male bigot chauvinistic homophobes.
