  1. Hi, William: I have to say (as landlord) that since the begining I am concerned about what are you talking, so, I am already offering un my little land cheap houses with not too many prims (basic for rezz things) to give avatars a quite place where to land, share with their friends or enjoy intimacy and romance. I am no the way to grow, slowly, with the help of those who like become tenants and visitors. Just IM me and I will show you since I am still developing the place, but offering "presale" personalized houses and service. Greetings, hapy holidays and best wishes for 2020
  2. Well Kweopi, answering your questions, although I am not an expert I have skills: 1) Texturing, using gimp and other tools related. 2) Mesh modeling (learning). Most of all using Scketchup (free tool not pro) to do building parts and similar stuff. I know Blender but is the day that I can't dominate it, still learning, slowly. 3) Scripting. I have some notions. Still learning About motivation, YEAH! I am motivated to develope my skills, my business and my ideas. About your suggestions with full perms stuff, yeah! I got some stores selling these ones as my favorites and have an especific plan with some of their products already.
  3. I will think about very carefully, because I am not thinking "promote" others being part of a team, but is nice idea, but not as "customer service representative" because I would like build my own. Thank you very much.
  4. Thank you very much for your opinions. Even some makes me feel little frustrated. Develope builder or designer skills don't happen from night to day, need time, so if apparently market place and stores in world are most of them supported by creators, for good or bad, this means that retailers don't have certainty to open a business here. Perhaps I am reading in the wrong way the suggestions. But now I am concluding: 1) Be a creator and sell your stuff through market place (first option, following the steps enlisted above) and with a tiny store in world (second option) on your own land. 2) Don't waste time and money getting vendors and franchises to retail, no matter if it sounds like a good and virtuous way to sell and work as a commercial team to promote others creations. Am I right?
  5. 1L1H is a "system"?, hud or whatever to promote commercial stuff in world. Is a way to attract customers to your store offering quick promotions of sutff sell at 1L just during the next hour. In my experience as more or less customer is more attractive than discounts. Discounts are good way to promote and sell stock but this method helps also with traffic almost like happen with gifts, but gifts are sell at 0L, this way the merchant, the creator of 1L1H and customer got a piece of the cake
  6. Jaja, this made me think in my new president in Mexico...
  7. Thank you very much Lexbot. I think I have detected some needs between avatars and, answering your questions (mine too) I plan: To find some fullperm stuff that can satisfy such needs to resell, some could be get from gacha. I am thinking also about vendors and/or franchises. To find a way to resell as outlet some old stuff I have in my inventory that, even I don't use it, I know could be useful for some people instead of just throw it away. This meanwhile I am learning how to create my self some stuff to satisfy such needs, since I am developing some skills. Principal objetive, offer to people good quality and cheap stuff, since I also have in mind an specific target. I am interested in understand also how this 1L1H offers work I would like to use it more or less often combined with other kinds of events. So, in synthesis, my idea is, to develop my business in parallel with my self development and getting enough profit to, at least, make my tier and account self sustentable.
  8. OK... Perfect! Now, about what Chic said: I am not quite sure about the steps to resell. I reviewed the links I shared, very useful, but maybe I am little dump and need figure the best way and steps, same way, to search in market place stuff to resell. I think I could follow the steps listed by Polenth and also combine with some things to resell from my store. Said that, I have to say that I am looking for male stuff designers (clothes, hairs, body parts, gacha, etc), to include in the stuff possible to resell)
  9. Thank you very much, Polenth. Like Chic's, yours is a very useful comment. So, if I do a list of the "instructions" you are suggesting me I could write the first ones: 1) Get items on the marketplace to resell (I guess full perm or at least Copy-modifiable or Mod-Transf ???????, like vendors or packs ?????, gacha ???? ) 2) Set a small shop in my land in parallel to show a more professional look putting the focus in the brand and niche I want as target. For this two suggestions I found these links I think can be helpful for me and others and I am planning now broadcast too my own experience for latin people. And I know I will get more kind suggestions from the community. https://disfrutasl.wordpress.com/2011/12/10/consejos-para-iniciar-una-tienda-de-ropa-en-second-life/
  10. Wow! A powerful comment! Is there somebody who could give us, latin people, canadian, etc, some similar point of view from our own legal perspectives?
  11. Very well thought, Chic. But, perhaps between the preventions, all of us might see what will happen during the next month before react. I believe LL is taking note (we read posts above) of our concerns to take the precise steps before go ahead into a conflictive situation. I want to think that LL will provide us with the best agreement. I agree with you also, folks participating in this forums we are conscient about the tinny letters in the covenants (or no) but since we are discussing this we are alerting the others in the best interest of all. Is a way to stop any "mistake" or abuse.
  12. A very good and strong and based comment! To think about seriously, Linden Lab!
  13. One last comment from me doing Ecco to some voices ahead. I believe that Linden Lab and Tila (as subsidiary) not only can but have to cross the information without the signing or intervention of users already registered, since we already signed with the first one the terms and conditions. I understand that legally Tila need the consent with our signing but such "inner crossment" could be just a bureaucratique treatment without further effects. And, by the way, if you visit Tila, there are no way to sign the terms. And, within the SL account, in Credit details, there are not any way to do so either. I guess SL is on the way to add the necessary inside the dashboard to do and clarify all this.
  14. I agree and I behave such way. I prefer use the cash, when I have it to pay the account or tier fees or reinvest. So, while cash is well administered I don't find a big trouble or pernicious effect with all this about.
  15. Mmm! I agree... I am thinking we are on the way to experiment the "fussion" of Second Life and Sansar as twin platforms with the same currency: the Sansar Dollar or Token. Could be the end of lindens as custom currency? Or, the financial actual support of lindens will be the basement of Sansar dollar and the reinforcement of the virtual project. Read carefully the Chapter 3 of Tilia's terms and conditions. Is more "easy" to do that as a first step instead and against the technical difficulties to merge both 3D virtual platforms, the more hard challenge.
  16. I already talked through live chat asking about and, yes, seem that the most manageable way to don't be affected would be left at 0$ the cash within the account with credit information and normally used to cash. I believe is a good way to put in movement the money along the year as period, instead to be sleeping.
  17. Mmmm.... I guess this measure in the actual terms and conditions will cause a massive emigration instead immigration as if were a reflection of the real politics in USA today. I see some advantages and also disadvantages: More control and certainty about avatars (accounts) numbers, kinds, and people behind them. Demographic information is important to support the SL economy just like in RL. Useful for merchants since SL give chance to get some profits for real. Depuration of accounts. Some, I guess, bots or alts or basic, since are using SL in questionable ways maybe they have transformed themselves in a real trouble related sometimes to unfair play. In this topic, we must be careful about motivations behind people to have and use more than one avatar instead different appearance outfits. The preceding paragraph points also to a topic not sufficiently discussed: the inheritance or transfer of accounts and avatars among those who have been friends, couples, relatives inside and / or outside of Second Life. Many of these accounts, obtained marginally (I have one), by mutual agreement in the exchange of basic information for the management and administration of the inherited account, with these new measures will put at risk many of them, because Linden Lab has not wanted, could or questioned the reasons that make such a transfer legitimate in certain concrete, real, viable circumstances. Those of us who have an account in similar conditions, unable to verify the original identity despite being managing it honestly and sensibly, enjoying the possibilities that SL gives, we will surely see them lost for our sadness. On the one hand it may be good, the reduction would affect what was said in the first paragraph. On the other hand, it contradicts the spirit that defines SL, philosophically, administratively, legally, and playfully, as a meta-world parallel to real life. It is as much as restricting the freedom of expression through the self-representation of oneself through so many appearances and avatars as is necessary or wanted, although putting certain limits on this would not necessarily be contrary to the proper coexistence between avatars. This issue, if well considered, could be manage in a more constructive way, even technically speaking giving chance to join or merge such accounts in one as if instances (I want remember SL that the SL viewer and third viewers allow log in with more than one instances or accounts within the limits of each one computers). The current contractual terms and conditions seem more abusive, self-defensive than assertive, supportive and sustainable for both signatory parties. I firmly believe that the contract, before any of us sign it, would have to be subject to serious modifications that consider the different concerns of those who, for now here and now, are setting out our points of view, all of them very worthy, especially in the relative to credit and identification issues. Whether or not Tilia is a subsidiary of Linden Lab, may or may not be relevant. The truth is that, if it is necessary for Linden Lab to delegate the issues of billing to a third party in discord, it could have relied on the same PayPal that many of us use and whose terms of contract have recently been modified in a less coercive manner, but providing greater certitude to the parties that participate in the exchange of goods and services. Yes, it is possible that the idea of managing Tokens goes hand in hand with what is already managed financially in the world with virtual currencies. The linden is already a virtual currency, of the former, even before the bitcoin and, although in recent times there was a bubble of speculation, we would not have to fear more of the account to an undeniable trend of the future, future in which, since we decided to be in this metaworld, we accepted to behave graciously as part of it. Finally, I believe that, with this novelty, Linden Lab should also provide certainty about the delimitation of attributions of the third party in discord as well as the effects expected by us users in, for example, the limits on acquisition of lindens, in the transaction and exchange of coins. It is true that the linden-dollar relationship has been determinant to fix the value of the linden in both cryptocurrency or virtual currency, but in today's global economic conditions this has to be different. I have known of many cases of non-US users in which enjoying their SL is an ordeal for not being able to exchange real money for virtual, or for difficulties of inter-bank relations. Many Russians and Chinese and recently Venezuelans have experienced this very often and that Linden Lab is free of political and ideological inclinations. SL is a cultural mosaic whose only borders are the language, the boundaries between regions, the ages, the own skills and capabilities of each one, I hope Tilia does not become the punitive pretext to undermine Second Life with a view to reinforcing Sansar's project even with his head down in its takeoff or worst.
  18. I am very interested in that phrase: "... when SL had a rather popular phase and when trafic was more important for a region than it is today". Now, 5 years after that quotation, I question which measure is more important for SL and residents today. As I understood, time ago traffic was a measure comparable with web pages traffic, giving an idea about popularity of a sim, service, commerce or spot, even the use and enjoyment in time of personal houses in the task of build a Second Life living as if real, having a family, connecting almost daily, working, etc. Time ago, another important measures were the demographics data. But now, nobody can tell with certainty how SL is realy growing and developing in population making difference between kinds of avatars (mesh, basic, bots, alts, furies, human appeal, mixtures, clans), residents and enlight about motives and uses that real people give to SL. Have alts, for example or bots don't have real reason to be seen as a trouble related only to unfair play but in especial circumstances; but now, even the SL rules and politics, and some perceptions of residents have distorted ways and objectives of why stay inside SL, play inside SL, live or even camping to get lindens in SL. That information is a shadow that blind even the efforts of virtual merchants affecting the virtual economy of SL and, I suspect, even the real one and that could explain in part the new changes because SLB16. I think -and this is a constructive criticism- that meanwhile Linden Lab don't review and redefine all the concepts associated with this ones, SL (including Sansar) would become stocked and residents, new and old, would feel disappointed and migrate to other platforms even non profitable. Sometimes I feel some sutil tension among two extreme points of view from users, those who see SL just as a game against those who, like me, see it with more big and vast possibilities for self personal and group development with all its implications. I remember the time when SL even was an important platform to important firms (banks, fashion designers, transnational enterprises, politics, governments, cultural asociations, universities, etc) hoping use, for example, traffic measure to justify their research, communication and branding efforts. I love SL and I don't plan lef it until I die, but, this topic is a big concern of mine. As tiny beginner landlord and merchant and creator in one hand I enjoy being around but right now I am not quite sure if traffic is really important information to attract people as tenants, customers or whatever. I think too that this lack of definition and lack of actualization incide on lag made over sims, because visitors and sim owners continue thinking the way before.
  19. Thank you. I will be following if some admin change it to the convenient forum
  20. Hello, everyone. I read some things around in the community, so I have some information about this topic. I hope I am writing this post in the right category about feedback, because I need feedback. The idea is to enjoy my SL and not only earn money, even is the second main objective. I am on the way to start my shop or store. I have some concerns, doubts. I understand that today the best place to start is marketplace, but I want also have a store related in my land. I have some idea about the brand and niche I pretend to offer my or others stuff as retailer. But... I plan to use gacha machines. I don't know how and how they function. I would like offer outlet stuff mine or from others, packs, vendors, but I don't know how to do it, in part because the limits with permissions of objects. Like many of us, I have plenty stuff for avi that I am not using now and I think I could sell at low price to new or old basic avatars, sometimes as gifts, but I don't figure how to do it without make a mess or go against rules or third rights. Even I have some mesh things that I don't use more, same situation. Also, there are some stuff I am creating in my beginnings as creator and I want sell them in world and web page (marketplace and owned),but I don't want make a mess with links etc. I also plan rent some little spaces for retailers, but I want give them some garanty about good sales in world and I understand traffic statistics are not the best measure inside the world to assure sales. What do you can suggest me and/or advice me about if you could do a list of steps to follow as instructions?
  21. I can say that this is one, but the most interesting discussion I've read in the forum. There are many to which I would like to quote, but it would be excessive to expose a simple thought from so many valid arguments and reasons that have been exposed by both. What I read, in summary, and triggered by a decision like that made by Linden Lab, is the contrast between the different ways of seeing, understanding, using and taking advantage of Second Life for each of those who have commented something and even by those who are not to the discussion, they experience their SL. It will seem a crude truth what I will say, but very often we take it for granted: if for some SL is simply a game, whatever, role, skill, hobby, fun, for others is a platform to develop skills, explore fantasies, imagine worlds, ways of being and pretending. For others it is a platform from which to share knowledge, learn; not in vain is the mother of social networks. There is here who takes lightly what happens in SL, in the end, it is a virtual world. There is, however, who takes it too seriously and engages not only with others but with their dreams just as they do or could do it in RL. And all these ways of seeing, understanding, enjoying SL intersect and that is why it is considered methaworld. The cosmovisions of one and the other are what enrich this space and give it meaning. And even so, the conflict, just like in RL is our daily bread. We are never happy because it makes drama or because he stopped doing it. Being a "decal" of reality, we bring here all our virtues and defects, all our miseries and pettiness, our traumas, deficiencies, absences, presences, affections, cultures, personalities. Those who use the platform to supplement their daily real income may be doing so as if SL were a simple instrument or in the hope of knowing themselves in a projection and representation of their potential. Exploring, designing, inventing, those creators, those entrepreneurs, those workers, those players circulate an economy intertwined with reality. Do not play with fictitious coins, even if they look like it. Some of us make sacrifices in RL to pay a premium account and the land we have rented or bought and we are still here because SL means more than just making money, little or much, or spending time. We dedicate hours to make a parallel life without losing focus on what, above all, RL is paramount. We are realistic and dreamers, not deluded. The only players would have to look also with the eyes of those who use SL as a platform to solve their physical deficiencies, the disabled that, thanks to the community and their participation, paying tips, renting, buying, selling, manage not to be isolated from the real world by virtue of the virtual world. Listen carefully, for example, to some DJs who in their voices denote a condition such as cerebral palsy, sclerosis, etc. And they trust in SL to love, to earn a meal in this way. And, I have to say, we all know that, almost like in RL, earn money here, no matter which system we use, is not so easy or fast. I enjoyed playing the virtual Latin versión of the reality show Big Brother here and I won 250 k linden. Most of them went to my real pocket and I could get real meal thanks to that and the people that organize that contest, even the other contestants and public. Thanks to that I could restart my dream to become landlord, step by step, but ask me how much I have now to bring others a nice experience renting with me. Not enough to get nice, low prim, and more or less cheap furniture. So, I have to use my time logged to break my head to manage wisely my actual amount of prims and sqm. Is a fascinating process that gives me the chance to reinvent all but, first, my self. Linden Lab earns a lot also from mesh models uploaded, and sometimes that could be more expensive than the weekly or monthly tier. Perhaps, LL could think about such prices too. I wrote it somewhere else, we do not have truthful, reliable demographic data that allow us to cross and relate resident avatars against SL users; premium against basics; human avatars against furies, customs, and objectives of use over this platform from subscribers, and a long etcetera increased by the diversity of RL confused with the diversity of imagination inside SL. We have an overpopulation of avatars, many of them used as alternatives or robots. Some see this practice as perverse, pernicious "for the business" because the crossroad of the inner economy gives temptations to cheaters, but we see and qualified this without stopping to understand the various reasons why a person can create several avatars. And there are many, from the desire to fraud to explore facets of one's personality as a therapy. If and when we got this information, I am sure most of the entrepreneurs and creators here could make more profitable and sustainable business plans with more solid merchandising and marketing. But, a big but, people here not always is in disposition for the reasons already said to share the truth about why they are here. They say SL is not RL. No? How many use SL to hide from themselves not only from the others inside and outside the world and with which reasons? We are very given to judge lightly, from a singular perspective, not inclusive, the decisions of a company and even those decisions often suffer from the same error in the shortness of vision. I do not want nor should I extend myself more. I conclude that, as far as I am concerned, although LL's decision puts me in a predicament in my RL, my dream is such that I will do my best to continue. Not because I believe in LL or SL, without because I believe in what the dreams of one and of a community can achieve, even if it is drop by drop, and we already see that the dollar equivalence of each line is much less than a drop . Perhaps, if the linden as the bitcoin were revalued, discussions like this would have another perspective.
  22. Reading all the very interesting lines and precedent points of view, even those ones apparently off topic I think there are some very punctual topics related to all this discussion in a resume: Kinds of use and limitations that residents and LL do on linden homes, old or new. Advantages and disadvantages of being or become premium Comparisons between subscribers premium accounts against basic accounts. Customs and restrictions about building, enjoying, living in Mainland against Private sims. First, without clear rules that have given chance to spoil the experience with lag, low constructions that spoiled views, overpopulation, limitations to privacy, differences in the ground and navigable waters, etcetera. Second with very expense costs for landowners and tenants making the competition very agresive, even injust for some. The no revelated actual and real demographic statistics by LL about the relation of real subscribers, basic and premium, against the inflated population of avatars residents, alters, robots, etc. And about how this overpopulation of avatars is related with customs, attitudes, objectives no well regulated or described for LL or users, causing suspicious, unfair play sometimes, ways of being too as if personalities dissociated for enjoying or participate in role plays. This affect, of course, the good development of business, learning, teaching, therapy, relationships, etc. Also, we need a virtual demographic statistics about types of avatars and outfits and relate those with the first data in order to know better the consumers (furies, child avatars, males, females, shemales, etc.), in relation with Mainland and Private and categories (General, Moderated, Adult) to be more organized and not so messed up and confusing. The data about Homesteads is crucial, I think, in some way related to the traffic, since there is also a huge interest in club, store, landowners to get big traffic on the idea to get more sales, but people just enjoy to camp, and is not bad even some hate that because give "fake" traffics because suspicious of bots and afk. To camp is a way to, for example, earn lindens with one avatar while with an alt create or build something in another sim, or dance with GF or whatever. So balance in this measures can be some kind of fake correlation unless we all, especially owners of something or creators, were not taking care about how to define this "web concepts" adapted and applied to SL. This is one of the reasons too why many become banned without a fair explanation, except in cases where scripts on increases lag, for example, but... Once, I remember, sorry the digression, I was ejected from some sim because the scripting on me, the only way to get in the sim was being a basic outfit, naked, without my *****. Crazy! Was a place to have sex! How! Mindy? The last points are related also with the free imagination and creation and expresion of each one person while that don't affect in anyway to third ones. I would like to combine the actual lands of my home and rental business in Mainland with a linden home, perhaps rent my linden home (not possible according to rules, as I understand, if I am not wrong) or with private parcels in a more virtuous way to get not only lindens to make my account self supportable, but make my virtual experienced more rich and close to RL, if may I say that, with the benefits of virtuality, more or less the way is planned as I understand for Sansar, but without the casquet. After all these considerations, one thing: I still don't have an answer from anybody to my question about why I can't see in the LL linden homes web page the new ones and only the old ones. Have a nice day
