My question: Is there an URL to a web page or service that I can use to submit the SL username in order to return the Resident UUID? This URL seems to work for most Residents, but about 10% return "Sorry, we did not find anything that matches." https://search.secondlife.com/client_search.php?q=Sean.Heavy&s=People I would submit an example of the error, but I'm not sure TOS allows me to share a link to a random Resident. (If this is not a TOS violation, please let me know and I'll post an example of one that fails.) Background: I am creating a database and web app for my own use to keep track of my customers. So far, I am just using my SL-Orders and SL-Transactions spreadsheets that I can download to see who purchased my items on the MP and in my shops. I am uploading these spreadsheets into my database. My web app setup is LAMP, (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP). I want to include the UUID of all my customers in my database. I have been able to determine most avatar UUIDs with this URL: https://search.secondlife.com/client_search.php?q=<USERNAME>&s=People For me: https://search.secondlife.com/client_search.php?q=Sean.Heavy&s=People The UUID is in the first URL to: http://world.secondlife.com/resident/<UUID> In my case: http://world.secondlife.com/resident/9ab87ce6-3048-402f-a8f6-f680925a12c3 In testing my automated script using this URL to find a random group of 24 of my customers, I get 3 that are not found which seems like a lot for such a small test. (I also manually entered these URL/Residents to make sure it wasn't just my PHP script.) (FYI, I do a sleep 2 seconds before every search to avoid overloading the SL site.) After logging into SL, I can use the in-world search to find those specific Residents, at which point I can get the UUID and copy/paste it to my database, but that would be a lot of manual, error prone work, which I am trying to avoid. ~Sean Heavy
I been in Sl for few years now and two years ago, me and my partner in crime, we decided to open our own Sim. After all this time, we been noticing that when we do a web search in SL the positions in this list should be based in the traffic numbers to our understanding but, shows that is not the case since, some that had less traffic than our Sim are well above our ranking!? How can this be possible!? Does anyone know the reason and how can we do to improve our position in this list since, the traffic numbers are not working in our favor?
