New Policy: Just because your alt bought it, does not mean you get copies of the item for all your other accounts.
What are you paying for when you give me that whopping $0.36 for a hair? Well, You get the hair to wear on your account. You can wear the hell out of it! WOOO.
That $0.36 does not buy you a lifetime warranty that covers you in case your account gets banned or you have a dramatic moment and "quit SL" only to start another account pretending you are another person.
Also, how do you "accidentally" get banned for conduct? Am I mistaken, but isn't it really fucking hard to get banned for conduct? Couldn't you have just not... had sex in the form of a 4yr old. I mean, it can't be that hard not to do it. I don't do that every day. It's not like cigarettes in middle school. People aren't pushing it on you to prove that you're cool.
Your site design is the first thing people see it should be reflective of you and the industry easy to look at with a nice navigation when you can’t find what you want it causes frustration
a clear Call to action to increase the temptation use appealing graphics they create motivation if you have animation use with moderation cause search engines can’t index the information
display the logos of all your associations highlight your contact info that’s an obligation create a clean design you can use some decoration but to try to prevent any client hesitation
every page that they click should provide and explanation should be easy to understand like having a conversation when you design the style go ahead and use your imagination
but make sure you use correct color combinations do some investigation, look at other organizations but don’t duplicate or you might face a litigation design done, congratulations but it’s time to start construction
follow these instructions when you move into production your photoshop functions then slice that design do your layout with divs make sure that it’s aligned please don’t use tables even though they work fine when it come to indexing they give searches a hard time
make it easy for the spiders to crawl what you provide remove font type, font color and font size no background colors, keep your coding real neat
tag your look and feel on a separate style sheet better results with xml and css now you making progress, a lil closer to success describe your doctype so the browser can relate make sure you do it great or it won’t validate
check in all browsers, I do it directly gotta make sure that it renders correctly some use IE, some others use Flock some use AOL, I use Firefox
title everything including links and images don’t use italics, use emphasis don’t use bold, please use strong if you use bold that’s old and wrong
when you use CSS, you page will load quicker client satisfied like they eating on a snicker they stuck on your page like you made it with a sticker and then they convert now that’s the real kicker make you a lil richer, your site a lil slicker
design and code right man I hope you get the picture what I’m telling you is true man it should be a scripture if it’s built right you’ll be the pick of the litter everyone will want to follow you like twitter competition will get bitter and you’ll shine like glitter
if you trying to grow your company will get bigger design and code right man can you get with it
Our Central database cluster is struggling, and you might see timed-out logins, transactions and teleports failing as well as problem while rezzing objects. Our Ops Team is already working to resolve the problem.
The next sunday that the game is stable, I'm going to throw a party. With cake!
... oh it will be IRL, so like I don't know how that would help anyone reading this. Unless you get piece of mind knowing I will be devouring an entire cake (no, Bill can't have any.)
My coworker Kim is a highly educated person and she said the most brilliant thing today while we were discussing the topic of arguing on the internet. She said sometimes she has stayed up late footnoting responses to poorly made arguments that she's come across on the tubes.
I said I'm terrible at flame wars and the only way I can win them is with my "wow I don't give a shit" attitude (but deep down I let all the annoyance compress into this ball of rawr that will probably be released one day while driving.) She said that if you footnote your response people will usually at least shut up, but you can never convince them, even with cold hard evidence. I sighed and said yeaaah people are stupid. To which Kim said the most brilliant true thing ever. It kinda was like this: "That's not true, these aren't stupid people. They are people who are bright and intelligent who have been praised their whole lives. Everyone tells them how smart they are and they feel that their intelligence defines them. The problem is, they aren't educated. They will cling to the one small point they think is true and then when they do their 'research' they will seek out things that prove their theory and ignore anything that doesn't. So it's not that they are stupid. They are just uneducated."
And then I thought back to every argument on the internet I've read by someone who was completely talking out of their ass about a subject I am very educated in. It's completely true. The most frustrating arguments aren't by those speaking in l33t, it's the ones posted by those who use proper grammar and pretty much know how to support a thesis. That doesn't mean their thesis is in any way right and there is absolutely no chance of convincing them of that.
... I don't know. I just felt peace at that whole concept. Like I understood people a little bit more than I did this morning.
I also sure as hell plan to not voice my opinion on shit I know little to nothing about.
I don't take many rental spots. I have the Block (free), Hbox (free & lovely), LicoLico (mainly cause I shop there) and my newest rental spot which I will find a URL for when I get home and of course my main store in Koreshan. I don't see a point to spamming the SL community with my shop. It's annoying to set up shops. It's annoying to pay rent. It's annoying to track sales. And I'm usually stuck with the sim owners who are like "we moved everything! come set up again" about twice a month.
This morning I logged on to do customer service. I had 13, THIRTEEN Rental notecards. THIRTEEN SINCE SUNDAY!! This is not counting the 4 that I declined because they did not have banana in the title. That's SEVENTEEN rental offers.
H is for HOLY SHIT. ;_; Stop spamming meeeeee.
So here is my rental policy:
Free is great. but still doesn't mean I want it.
The closer the rent is to a $L1:1 prim ratio the more likely I won't just sit back and laugh and laugh at the offer. $L450+ a week to rent 30 prims... Uh one of my hair vendors is more than 30 prims. Please stop spamming me with these offers.
Bad builds are bad. I'm extending my bad builds policy not just to the newbie stall malls, but anything built entirely from TRU urban textures.
If I TP there and see another of your renters is selling copied versions of my stuff or any of my friends stuff, you can safely assume that I won't rent there. I am not entirely sure why that isn't just a given.
Sex sim mall offers. O_o No.. thanks.
Club malls with sponsored club events blah blah, no thanks. I can't understand the SL club mentality. I couldn't even understand it when I used to go to SL clubs years ago.
LIKE: original build, nice people, low rent, knowing traffic stats
That's the policy. If you've read this and still want to offer me a rental deal, put "Banana Daiquiri" as the notecard title.
Otherwise, if you just see me as a walking dollar sign, please don't spam me! I get enough spam already from asset server issues and god awful modelling agency things. Sanks.
Bio: Noam was born in Feb 2006 spontaneously. He spent most of that year being a pain in the ass twat. 2007 proved to be better times, having moved to Koreshan and made some hat everyone and their grandma bought. Then he got really into smack, not the drug but the breakfast cereal, sugar smacks... mmm. Then stuff happened and things where great. Then more stuff happened and it's shitty again. I think cryolife might be karmic retribution for 2006.
If I'm offline, send me a notecard with your name, the item name, the date you bought it and most importantly the transaction # and you will get super speedy service as soon as I accept the note. Failure to do any of that means you have to wait.
If your notecard starts off by calling me a thief because you paid for something and it was never delivered, please take a second to close your eyes and picture me. Sitting at my desk and pantomiming strangling you. Never do I stroke my Snidley Whiplash mustache and go "HOHO, For I have stolen another 25 cents from someone on the internet! My dastardly deeds know no bounds!" And then cackle madly. The asset server sucks. Just give me the trans # and I will fix it.
Items that are NO MOD, will forever be no mod. Please try the demos
I will gladly send gifts of no transfer items if it's not a hugenormous list. There is no additional cost.
No Refunds or exchanges on NO TRANSFER items. This means hair. Please be sure that you are purchasing the correct style and color before you commit to buying.
Lying about transactions, using someone else's Trans #s, saying you bought more than you did etc, will result in banning. And if it's funny, I may tell other people about it too. :-D You've been warned.
I don't do customs, but I do take suggestions. If I get inspired by your suggestion I will send you the item I make for free. Please when suggesting stuff put your avatar name on a notecard with any reference pictures as I have a shitty memory.
I don't make little kid clothes.
I do not speak any other language than English. If you do not speak English, then you probably can't understand any of this policy and I look forward to your nonsensical IMs and threats on my life.
I can only do resizes if I have time. I don't usually. :( Sorry. Honest to blog, if I have free time, I will help you out. If it's an easy issue, I will try to walk you through it.
Until Linden labs gets rid of the NOTES sections of profiles, I track all correspondences with customers through that. If you were a dick to me 6 months ago for no good reason and you're hoping I forgot by now, hahahahaha. Silly face. I love taking notes.
I'm not looking for models.
I don't want to give you $10,000 linden to put on a fashion show.
I'm not looking for rental spots at the moment. When I am, I am looking for places that: have nice builds, don't have to do with nekos, and have a rental rate closer to L$1 to 1prim.
If Second Life ever fucks up your PERMS and makes mod objects no mod, I will replace them. If it's trans, send me back the broken parts. If it's no trans, TP to the shop when I'm on and just show me you own it. (Snapshots do not = ownership)
I do not replace items for people who got their accounts banned. I do not give items to alts either. Just don't get banned. How hard can that be?
The only people who should be offended by this list are the people who commit these atrocities and therefore deserve to be offended. If you are just a chill costumer who does your thing without rocking my boat, then I love you X a billion.
