Hallo everyone! - but especially SL experts who can actually help with this topic! Since Feb, 2008 my inventory has been reporting this problem: every now and then my avatar would receive a "New Pant" item, wearing it at log in. Basically, a "New Pant" is randomly created while I'm offline, it appears in "Lost and Found" folder, and it is worn on my avatar while offline. It does not happen every time I log inWorld, but it is somehow annoying and I've decided to take action. I've found no issue like that posted in any of the recently opened Forums, so hopefully this topic will have some followings. How can I do to remove this spamming pajama from my avatar? Does anybody else has the same issue?
Gachas seem to be popular items, but I see a lot of sellers on Marketplace marking gachas with huge, sometimes surly disclaimers. Most are along the lines of "buy at your own risk, zero refunds, zero redeliveries." That doesn't sound legit, and I avoided gachas... until tonight. I was in a friendly sim, saw an interesting gacha item for just L30, and took a gamble. Nothing was delivered. I wasn't surprised. I sent a friendly IM to the seller (there were numerous copies of this item available) and asked when delivery would be fixed. Before a reply came, SL sent an automated message: "Your object has been returned to your inventory Lost and Found folder by <sim> due to parcel auto return." Strange, I had never received the item so could not have lost it. This made me wonder - when buying a gacha inworld should I right-click > take it? Maybe so. In any case, I opened Inventory, went to my Lost And Found, and the gacha item was... not there. I sent back to the sim where I purchased the gacha, right-clicked on each identical item in the seller's collection, but none indicated "take." Maybe the system returned it to a different folder, or the object was titled something unusual. So I searched my inventory for keywords, parts of the object's name, and other "close" words. No match. I then re-sorted my inventory by "Most Recent," but still no luck. The object in question was a Japanese fan with an floral design to hang on the wall, so wouldn't have been blocked by a G/M/A content filter along the way. Maybe the SL Lost And Found process copies the item, deletes what was found, and sends the copy to the owner. If so, maybe this "copy and paste" process wouldn't work for gachas (nor for any other "no copy" items. Long story short, this made me sympathize with residents who have complained of not receiving gachas. I also had to sympathize with the gacha sellers, because the system itself did not send the item to my Lost And Found folder as it had indicated. I understand that gachas may be a big part of SL economy, but if these items continue to cause problems for residents, sellers, and likely for SL then that part of the economy is making SL sick. I'm glad that some people have a good time with gachas, but given how many feel ripped off by them I'm surprised that SL allows the problem to continue. Maybe there's no need to get rid of gachas, just to change them. Could the permissions be modified by the original gacha builder so that they are sold with C/M/T options? This or other alterations might interfere with the resale trade, which it seems is the root of the problem - not the gacha, but some of the many hands they pass through as they are sold and resold. Too many dealers taking a cut, until finally the buyer gets nothing... Lesson learned: no more gachas for me. And because gachas in Marketplace aren't always labeled as such, from now on I'll be buying only items with "copy" permission. Mahalo / thanks for listening to me vent.
HELP!! WHERE in the Worlds is this? The topic is simply this... I want to go back to this place, if it still exists. PLEASE HELP ME FIND THIS PLACE! In my earliest times in SL i visited a variety of sims... some of them I still go to, some are gone... but there's a few I loved that I simply cannot find. Yes, I know we have history, but I don't have the first computer I registered on anymore, and so, my history only goes back as far as the second computer I was on... BUT, I have pictures, and a description... forgive the noob avi, but I've come a ways since then, I promise! This was taken in September of 2015 only days after i joined Second Life, so I had no idea about saving landmarks. It's a fantasy sim -- i think the giant mushrooms and the scary cat kind of gave that away... If you have any idea where this is, I'd love to know where it was and if it still exists. NOTE: There's a better than even chance it was in the SL destinations b/c I didn't know where anything was at that point. I've looked through the SL fantasy destinations, but I didn't recognize anything that I thought was it. Thanks so much! Please feel free to share YOUR long lost requests... if there is someplace or some thing you found or visited in Second Life and for whatever reason you've lost track of where it was or who made it and you'd like to try to find it again... please post it here. I think there's also an underwater area on this sim but that third picture may just be another place i went to that same day... Anyway, the important part is the psychedelic space that I totally adored... Scary kitty cats, mushrooms and my own personal skelly for company🐱💀. As you can see from my day-one indigo glow hair and tie dye painted on shirt, i fit right in! Definitely worth a revisit now I know how to take pictures and dress just a bit better, even though I still can't walk in a straight line!! Thanks for your help! Blue Remember: PLEASE share your lost places (and pictures) with me too!
Heya! I know inventory problems are well covered online but I'm at the point where I feel I've exhausted my own knowledge and ability on the issue and am a bit lost in regards with what to do next. My lost and found folder doesn't seem to be functioning the way I've read it's intended to. I've lost a few items that should have been returned to me upon returning (non deeded) items in a rented region, and I have searched very very thoroughly through my inventory for the coalesced objects that these items should have become. I have, whilst standing on land I am renting, placed single items and then returned them to myself. I get notifications that they have returned to my lost and found. I reset my cache, log out, log back in, my lost and found is still empty. Is there something I've missed? The items I've lost were only rare gacha items, and even if they can't be found or returned I'd still like to understand if there's something I'm doing wrong, as I am new to second life and am still getting a handle on things in general. Wiki information is useful but doesn't always cover the specific things i'm struggling with. I'll also note that it isn't only no copy objects that I seem to be missing. While they are the bulk of it, many copy objects are not returning to me properly, which i have discovered via my own experimentation on the issue.
