  1. Hello everyone, (linden labs in particulair....) I am having a very nasty problems with residents that are openly griefing a sim in SL and uses my name, uses my profile information and also uses my twitch name and account to make me look bad. Now normally i would say, i would file am abuse report, but thats not possible since i have so much information i need to share with LINDEN LABS. This person is deliberatly making me look bad, damaging my good reputation as a DJ in secondlife and also enters my REAL LIFE by using my twitch account, calling it a GRIEFERS STREAM for SL, openly naming my so called ALTS, (and yes i have two accounts, but this person involves other people as well. people that i am closely connected to in SL) I cannot contact LL by phone, since i am in the Netherlands and i cannot call to other countries. Is there an email that i can use? I have a LOT of screenshots that i need to share, and i know this is against TOS, but i HAVE to protect myself and my real life work, I am a DJ and music producer and i stream SL on twitch, this is majorly affecting my business as well as my REAL LIFE and my work in SL and on Twitch. This has to stop!!!! but i have no clue where to go or who to contact. Is there anyone that can HELP me? I would be so grateful. Thankyou in advance! DJ Tom Carter (Cartertom Resident)
  2. Looking for advice and I am not just complaining. I really want to help. There is a person that has been for years harassing and abusing to appoint one person lost her business and another lost his job as a dj. multiple reports have been filed yet nothing has been done. She has clearly broke Lindens rules of Harassment " Harassment can take many forms. Communicating or behaving in a manner that is offensively coarse, intimidating, threatening, or causes annoyance or alarm is not allowed." I was threatened that my personal info and made up stuff would be sent to my friends and was. Luckily I only lost one friend. In addition she has Repeated transmission of undesired content Disrupting events or user conversations, such as through the use of repetitive sounds, Spamming Posting interpersonal disputes or personal negative commentary publicly when such communications should occur through private channels of communication; All from Lindens definition. She has done this with her fiends, herself and alts. Yet my friend lost her business and another lost her job and she still harassing. Since I blocked her she started to follow me and send me $L1 several times a day. (form looking at my profile?). SOOOOOO how do i send an effective abuse report like I said nothing happened from the multiple others. She needs help and lack of response from Linden is only empowering and encouraging. Please Help I want SL to be safe for everyone. In RL it is easier because of police and courts in SL I feel so helpless.
  3. Just thought I would give everyone a heads up about a new item that was just released on the marketplace. I am not going to actually say what it is, or post the link to the store. I am not trying to actually promote or advertise the item just let people know its out there in the wilds now and you might want to think twice about where you go and who is around you and if you have your relay on auto or not and if you know how to use the safeword and if it can be used by chat command too. There are a lot of people who think and claim and try to make others think and believe that an auto relay gives implied full consent to everyone about everything for any reason ever and they do not ever have to ask; that an auto relay totally bypasses anyone's limits hard or soft (the unwritten rule about relay use that does not apply to everyone that uses a relay in auto mode just because you want to assume it does). {Don't be one of those kinds of people. Or face your own consequence that person may report you for abuse/griefing}. That it is their right to be disrespectful and show a lack of common decency and ask first in an im before doing something with someone who would otherwise be totally unaware of what was being done or by who or how without first getting to know the person and if it is ok or not beforehand. The item in question is a hud that allows one person to take control(possess) the other player without any warning of any kind. it can let them spoof talk as you through the object, which could be deceptive or manipulative to anyone that doesn't realize it is not them talking but someone else through them, through the object. Remember not all players yet know how to tell the difference when an object is speaking. Plus with object you do not even know if it is the person being affected by the object or someone else that is speaking. Which can be seen as deceptive and shady or manipulative and outright lying trying to cause the other person grief or humiliation or embarrassment or to degrade them in front of others without knowing if this person is even in to such things. It will hide the other person where they are completely invisible to anyone else around except by looking at the map or nearby list. so you wont know who it was that was doing it. So start watching if two people come in together or shortly apart from each other but you can only ever see one of them. also you might want to consider going into options and setting the no-spoof option which sets noname infront of objects that talk, so you know its an object talking; and setting a different color for object talk from the normal collar, so you can know when an object is talking as someone else for those that don't know that this can be done. I dont have the hud myself yet, so I cannot confirm but I think it lets you move them around and even tp them too, and it blocks or redirects chat so they cannot say anything unless they can use and know how to use ((OOC)) which not everyone in sl even in the use of rlv knows this will let you speak around chat redirects/gags/blocks. Plus anyone using marine kelly's hardcore rlv viewer cannot even do this. It apply lots of other restrictions to the person to making it hard for them to do anything but go along until the other person decides to let them free or they safeword or logout and be called a 'cheater' or 'coward' or other various degrading terms to try and shame the person so they wont do it again later with them or someone else. The members of the group and the creator do not care how anyone thinks or feels about the concerns that it might be used for greifing or abuse or harassment and will actively tell people they need to grow up and get a thicker skin or stop being a pansy because you can just safeword or logout. They forget that some might not be able to safeword or logout of rlv depending upon the viewer or relay they have. Or some people new to rlv may not know how to safeword or remember how to turn rlv back off, and that its their own fault and not their responsibility or accountability for what someone does with the product and that it doesn't need any warning system to let someone know what was being done before it was done. forcing a person to have to just accept and deal and go and flow with what ever happened until they could either log out or safeword if the person who did it would not release them. The creator of the device makes another object and not sure if this same feature was added to the new object that allows you to prevent someone from being able to touch their hud or collar to safeword, so if you didnt know how to use the ((OOC)) safeword your only other option would be you were forced to log out of rlv or just continue until the other person lets you go if you asked and they refused. I find this sort of thought pattern lacking in professional ethics. Not all hud relays have a chat safeword or a safeword that can be triggered by ((OOC)). And not everyone new to rlv knows or understands this. they even mentioned making about a new relay that will help improve the performance and effectiveness of their items. which makes me lead to think they intend to make a relay with no black list or safeword and possibly always on auto. to make it harder for anyone to ever escape without logging out which then someone will cry and claim 'cheating' at that point. when making a relay with out a safeword or that is only auto is a form of cheating too. by giving them no other choice but to continue or log out that is a form of mindcontrol and abuse and manipulation which not everyone is into or should have to be subjected too by these kinds of people. logging out of rlv to get out of a situation that you did not agree to or did not want to happen is not cheating. trying to claim it is, is cheating and deceptive and manipulation and gaslighting. same with safewording to end something that you no longer consent to or agree to continue to allow to happen for any reason. some of these people with this new device will even not let you free if asked to force you to have to safeword or log out so they can then claim you 'cheated' to try and shame and embarrass or degrade and humiliate you so you wont do it again later; a form of negative reinforcement behavior modification and mind control so they can make you more biddable, more useable, more abuseable and eventually made numb to the experience so they do even more things and you wont complain about it. Which not everyone is into but they don't care, they believe it is their right or privilege or entitlement to do these things just because you had rlv on and had a relay set to auto. Which is not the truth and never was but many try and make people think it is. so heads up, if a friend or nearby person or acquaintance starts acting or talking in ways totally not like them be sure to ask them before just jumping the gun and assuming it was them. my biggest concern is that people will use this to force tp people into G or M sims while nude and then act out as them to try and get them banned or AR'd by people in the sim as a means to harass and grief the individual that was effected and stir up drama for the people that had to witness such behavior and actions. thinking it was funny and completely okay for them to do this. So again, heads up their is a new beast in the wilds that might cause drama in your sims. know your collar or relay safeword and how to use it if needed.
  4. Hello, So recently me and a friend have been facing harassment from two people we used to work for. They thought we were the same person using alts to ruin their organization which was complete and utter nonsense. Since I blocked them, and my friend the same, they've been visiting my friend's land and it just makes me worried they're messing with us. I don't want to get hacked or my friend to get hacked. What do we do to stay safe from these two loons?
  5. This morning, Sunday, December 9, 2018, My wife, who had left her avi logged on overnight sitting on the sofa in the living room of our home, while she slept, returned to her computer to find a stranger who had managed to circumvent our security orb, sitting on the sofa in an apparent make out pose. She immediately stood and tped to our bedroom a short distance away. The stranger then proceeded to harass her by clicking on her butt, setting off her spanker. When she removed the spanker, he proceeded to click her lips setting off her kisser. All the while my security orb is saying it is ejecting him. We have note carded the incident, but other than the note card we have no other proof. I have added the offender to our ban list and he has been banned from the island by the owner. My question is basically two fold. First, Can we file a report against the person for invasion of privacy and harassment? And Secondly, How can we expect to be safe in our home if our security orb can be so easily circumvented?
  6. Ok, for those of you here into bdsm I have a question. what are your feelings about 'training' a sub/slave? What I meant is I was in a group where a master said they needed to 'train' their slave not to use a certain word, so they were looking for a script for use with rlv to 'train' them to stop saying that word so much. Now, of course, I don't know if the slave wanted them to or consented to such 'training' or not but it just sort of crossed me as a little strange almost if as that master was being domineering and less as a dominant/master to me I would think they would just need to ask/tell them to stop using the word. if they are a real sub/slave and have submitted they would do so without the need of any rlv enforced 'training'. if not they are not really submitting or consenting and maybe they need to have a talk about it and why. at which point any forced 'training' could be a form of manipulation or abuse. now, of course, the sub/slave would have to add it to their collar on their own for it to be able to be used on them(which could be taken as consent), but some sub'slaves can be manipulated into doing things that they might not really consent or want to be done because they think they have to obey everything without any choice at all or be considered a bad/failed sub/slave. bdsm is about consent and communication and trust, even if being a slave. it just seems that many dominants or 'masters' don't think it is. it feels as if many dominants have become obsessed over the power of rlv and how they use it without any real consideration of what their sub/slave wants or has consented to. that they think just because someone has put a collar on and added them as owner they have the right to do whatever they want at that point without caring if the sub/slave is comfortable with it or not. that wearing a collar and having rlv on is automatic consent to be treated however the other person wants. so what are your feelings about this? am I maybe just letting my own past experiences colour my perception of what was said or being done?
  7. Hi All I am new to SL, just joined a week ago. Today a person came to me in Freebie Galaxy while i was searching for stuff. He started the chat and going to ask simple RL question. I told a bit and then humbly asked him to read my profile first while i keep searching my dresses over there. He replied with a laugh but suddenly after that my account got stuck. i tried again and again to make it work but it didn't. He had written in his profile similar to that "If you will be nice with me i'll be nice with you otherwise not"... I am not sure whether it was he who put some kind of attack on me or is it something else. But after that time i am not able to login on the viewer. I am so worried and want the solution asap. Can anyone guide or help me?
  8. There's a LL employee mass flagging all furry items put into the furry accessories, regardless if it's a furry accessory. Such as armor for a feral furry avatar, or eyes specifically fit to a furry head. It's not only myself that's getting flagged, many furry creators are having this issue. Several of us have contacted LL by submitting a ticket, and this same LL employee has replied to all of us and replying with the same generic response. But giving this examples of why there is a furry accessories category; because furry accessories don't fit normal avatars. This is the definition of all furry products. They do not fit human avatars or products. They are suggesting to put furry clothing for a specific furry avatar into the unisex clothing section. It's not unisex clothing, there are male and female options usually and for furry avatars and furry parts. Furry customers, for the most part, only shop in the furry accessories section for mods, clothing, eyes and addon parts. This is the only furry section creators can use to display their furry products, unless it's a full furry avatar, there is a section for that. If we're forced to put our furry products in human categories, where furries have to sift through hundreds of thousands of products to find their niche furry item or have humans having to sift through furry items they have no need of, it's going to cause businesses to lose sales. And if businesses lose sales, Linden Labs loses sales. Because they no longer get the MP percentage cut, or the Linden Exchange percentage cut because creators are no longer making enough money. And why now? We've been using this category for many years now and all of a sudden this one Linden, who is a furry, decides we can no longer use it for our products. I've just had this product flagged; Eyes for furry heads. And another content creator I know just had this flagged; digi-grade clothing for furry avatars. Having these items in a non-furry category will cause unwanted sales. If a human sees these products and purchases them, but does not know or realize they are specifically for furries (I've even had this happen IN the furry category) than that will cause bad reviews. This can only lead to confusion, loss of sales and more false flagging from humans who see furry items and believe they are in the wrong category.
  9. Forgive me if this is a common question but I didn't see it asked recently. With the new upgrades coming to the SL Experiences function... Someone told me that Experiences can allow another to access a persons LL account to enable things like transfer of inventory, transfer of L's or access to personal data. This doesn't sound right but I don't see the documentation to prove otherwise. Input please?
  10. I did a search on the marketplace for carnival rides since I sell them and all that comesup is pages of the same texture for sale by tons of diff sellers obviously doing it to cheat the search results to only show their products
  11. I have a neighbor who has decided to put up huge signs that tell me to kiss her Ass, she has my name on these Signs and my business name. I own a Sim and half of land, she possibly owns the plot on the SIM next to me. She owns a Whore House, I own a rental community. My Staff banned her and a few others from her establishment. We have had complaints from residents in the past whom complain about Hookers from another SIM across from us using their Sex Beds.This same Resident has a huge logo high in the sky almost encroaching on my land. She did have some items encroaching, and we sent them back. I have written at least 3 abuse reports, my spouse has also, with no intervention from the Lindens. I am a resident for 12 Years, what happened to the days when an actual Linden visited and viewed the issue? Not doing anything is allowing this idiot to do what ever they feel. Also do I not have the right to BAN anyone I want from my SIM? Especially if they are not going to rent from me, I do not see this person renting from me, what I do believe is she would want to bother my Residents to go to her establishment. This I believe is her problem, I have tried to speak to her. So she pulls this crap to what try and force my hand it is freaking annoying. I am about ready to just close my entire account, that's a pretty big monthly payment Linden labs will no longer receive if I do. What is a Legacy Avatar to do?
  12. I discovered a box on my sim that neither my tenant nor I can return to the owner. I've submitted three abuse reports, and submitted a ticket that basically blew me off. I am the sim owner. Does anyone know how I can get rid of it? I contacted the owner and the creator with no replies. Thanks
  13. I have recently had an issue with another member. This person did not like the fact that I rejected his romantic advances and released a torrent of abuse in chat. Basically bashing me for being a lesbian, threats and other abusive language. I, of course, blocked him. He proceeded to contact me with alts and continued harassing me. I blocked the alts I know about however, he seems to have many. I enabled "only friends and groups can IM me", however this inhibits my ability to enjoy SL because people I might otherwise welcome IMs from are not able to contact me. I have also reported him and each of the alts to support. Any suggestions for what else I might do?
  14. What would you do if you blocked someone, but then you didn't say anything to them you just blocked them? The following day you receive messages from other accounts you don't know if it's his alternate or his friends, but they bring up the fact that you ignored someone or blocked them. So they are threatening you and bad mouthing you and you didn't do anything, but block the person.
  15. I logged in at my home spot yesterday to find this ridiculousness -- I posted a video below to give some idea of what I'm dealing with. I usually only log in about once a week lately, so I don't know how long this has been going on for, but I noticed it yesterday and reported it last night, as of right now nothing has been done. The objects are not technically on my land, so I can't return them (and my neighbors don't seem to log on often, either). Muting the owner hasn't made them disappear, and derendering them isn't very helpful, as it is multiple objects, no idea how many there are. They are massive, flat planes, much larger than a sim, with flashing textures, all scattered on top of each other. They are scripted objects and are lagging the sims to hell. I am in Kress, and they crossing over into at least the neighboring sims, and extend upward at least 500m. Has anyone else seen anything like this? ---> Youtube link-- Land griefing May 2018
  16. If a profile is spouting hatred that is inciting even more hatred, is this in any way a violation of TOS? Kit Breen
  17. Good morning everyone. I have been plagued by this issue for over a year now. There is a system out there called CDS. I did not know about it until an avatar who owned a sandbox group and I had a disagreement and she and her sandbox members all began to grief me. They didn't eject me from their group, they just disabled my ability to chat in it while they talked about me and for the next few days harassed me in IMs. One of the points in their harassment was to claim that suddenly, just then, the CDS on their sim detected I was using 3a blacklisted viewer, but I have always only used firestorm and I was not even on their sim. They then said that I was now banned from a lot of other sims automatically and forever and claiming to many others that I was a content thief. I have been in SL since 2005 and never have I done anything like this. I thought they were just trying to get at me as I've never had any problem getting to any stores or sims. However, it turns out they did something to put me in this system. I have appealed through the CDS website multiple times for over a year now and it turns out they have special connections to the CDS system and had me banned unjustly, but CDS will not respond to my appeals. I cannot go to some stores as I am automatically and temporarily banned from them the moment I arrive because of this system. How is this not a form of griefing? I've heard that others had to contact Linden Labs to prove they have never used a blacklisted viewer. How can I do this? Occasionally, when these people see me, they still harass me with "What's it like being banned from 1500 stores?" or "Can you recommend a good copybot to me?" This has gone on long enough. Who should I go to about this? I have never used anything but firestorm. Before that I used phoenix. Before that I used Emerald and before that I used SL viewer. I have screenshots to prove all of this and I did report them many times before when this all started.
  18. There is a player that trying to break me and my wifey up. she send me pics and ims saying look what your wife doing. does this count as abuse or what.. should i send in a ticket. it not the first time she did this.
  19. I am a new avatar, and when I try to log in at my "home" which is also my last login location. The Social Island 4. I can not, log in because someone is griefing the area and harassing people. Their complexity went from normal to 8 million, crashing me so many times my brand new laptop has over heated twice. How do I report this? All the report form choices are not having an option for that from the web. <Removed>
  20. According to this page: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Residents'_privacy_rights , it talks about you can record conversations if you have a sign present. See the attached image, that I added. Found this today as I was out exploring. Found out the page they reference in their sign is from 2012. It's part of the Wikipedia, and probably hasn't been updated. Just curious to know if this is still a thing, or now that we are in 2018, long after this article was published.. No sharing.. AT ALL.
  21. What happens after a report is filed? How long does it take to remove the griefer from the land or sim? Why is it that the avatar continues to harass even after reports have been filed? Does nothing happen to them at all?
  22. Please grant the following, both your attention and concern. I'm hopeful this report will be forwarded/circulated, to help bring more swift and effective actions in resolving the matter. ********** has been attacking residents with debilitating viruses and for no reason attacked my avatar, rendering it useless. I've had others tell me about resident ********** and how he infects their avi with directed viruses. It's my understanding that these attacks have been reported with no action taken. Please waste no time stopping **********. I have never had any contact with this resident, ********** before. He attacks anyone he pleases, without provocation. Teleporting out of that area ended the assault. I was wrong about the attack(virus) ending when teleporting out of that area. My avi won't stop walking/running while standing. I have deleted the HUD folder and changed avi. No solution found. I have two problems needing help with: 1) ********** needs to be stopped. Please report your individual attention to this matter concerning ********** attacks against random SL residents. 2) My avi is essentially ruined with whatever script ********** attached to it. Please help me figure out how to correct this aggression. Thank you, ChoiceRider - SL Resident

  24. Zenless

    Griefing?

    I have a sim. This morning had an incident where dilation dropped to 0, FPS to 1-5. Any estate tools such as restart and viewing grips were/are unresponsive. The sim has remained like this for over an hour, eventually crashing my firestorm account but one text based account is still logged into it. I cannot TP into it or log onto it so I cannot restart,etc. It's just stuck in this frozen state. Before my firestorm crashed I did take these https://gyazo.com/c46a76f526d00a5a9a97cb7da7c5ba38 https://gyazo.com/348bcbfd4b620f4ac445b9274fcf0695 So it's been hours and I can't get on my sim at all. I am unsure if this is some error or a grief, if anyone can shed any light on it, it would be appreciated as I have no clue as to the root of the problem and even if LL reboots the sim I have concerns it will happen again (my sim has had long-term issues with griefers)
  25. TLDR Friend gets cussed out because they saw a trap coming. Friend shares 1 or 2 lines from convo in which they are being cussed out. Evil Cussing person finds out and uses many alts to get around the block to continue to cuss them out and file many reports (All the same) on different accounts in an attempt to get them banned. Cussing out continues in their public store group (owned by the one getting attacked and Note they are using PM messages as well in which the reporter account did not recieve permission as its the same person on alts. A friend of mine is a Sim and Group owner. A (old now blocked) friend tried to trick her into something and she declined. The friend freaked out and started to send hateful messages (cussing her out) concerned friends asked what was going on and a line or 2 from the PM conversation was shared (Which yes breaks TOS i think but is not what this is about) In the end the friend was blocked and banned from the sim and groups. Drama chain latter now old friend found out about the line or 2 that was shared and wanted to further be a pain in the bum and started to ask friends to report her for sharing the conversation. This went further and 10+ alts joined her shop group to cuss her out more and PM cuss her out on different accounts. Group is now on Invite only to prevent more attacks in it. So Now she has a person who potentially has 10-100+ alts going around copy pasting a report sharing a message they got and which only ONE of those alts has permission to share into a Shop group saying they are reporting the shop owner. This copy paste also has the cussing out btw. My friend has already sent in a report of what occurred as abuse. I was wondering if the attacker broke any other rule. Friend is freaked as shes never had a report against her like this and never had this type of occurrence happen.
