Second Life brake for me…

Last days i didnt use Second Life much. Its because I did get the Rosetta Stone Language Learnsoftware. Actually i try to refresh my french.. i had french in schhool long time ago but i did forget so much and this is sad.

So now I use this learnsoftware which is pretty cool to refresh my mind. Maybe i get it again.. maybe i will understand how french works again.. I hope that.. but this Software seems pretty fun. Very easy to learn with it.

So this is the reason why my Second Life is a bit quit those days and next days.

But dont worry.. I am back soon.. just enjoy to learn another language right now.


AdBoards for rent…

Only 4 AdBoards left for rent. You can rent one for 80L$/week in my mall and mainstore. They are directly near a slapt.me terminal, midnight mania board and lucky chair:

New Mainstore Tenant in our Mall, Racing Equipment

We have a new Tenant for 13 weeks in our second room.

The company name is “KJ Racing”. They build very cool kart cars which you can drive. Believe me.. they are pretty fast and its much fun to cruise with them.

So if want to visit the new store there, you can do this here: KJ Racing Store

But I need to say they dont only sell karts. I did notice they sell also differend other racing equipment and racing furniture for your car garage. And some racing fashion and clothes. Just check out what they offer. Seems to be pretty cool stuff.

One special is that they did place an kart rezzer outside of the store, So you can click this one and rezz a kart. And then you can drive on the Lionheart Sim. Its cool because Lionheart has much streets. The whole SIM is full of cool streets you can travel with this kart. But pss.. it could be that you see me there too and I am a very fast kart driver. I just wanted to mention that. But why are the Lionheart streets so special? Well you know.. many SIMs have closed borders and you cant reach every place there.. But on Lionheart SIMS you wont see any closed areas.. you can reach every Parcel and every house with a car on the street… Its very cool to travel and meet peoples there. You can travel with a train.. you can relax on a boat which you can also control. You can do so much there.. Yes and now you can rezz a Kart there and use it. Maybe you want to arrange a kart race on the Lionheart streets? Just do this.. this could be pretty fun because of all these streets there. But please tell me before.. than i try to be there too.. and I said.. im a very good kart driver  :)

Ok enough about all this.. maybe its a place you like.. I hope so. Just check that out if you like

Greetings Miyo

Complicated peoples…

Since my land did expand and i did build a second mainstore which i will rent for peoples there.. i had already some visitors who was first interested.

But what do SL business peoples think today? That I do all work for them?

Someone joined my parcel and was unhappy because i dont have high traffic on my land.

Well dont lets talk about high traffic.. we all know what this means.. there are still peoples outside who think high traffic would make better sales then natural traffic.

My business is grown because of Landmarks, Notecards, Group Advertice, Website Advertice, Forum activity, Mouth to Mouth Advertice, Midnigh Mania, Lucky Chair, Events and much more.

I often have less then 2k Traffic but I still sell.. I still sell so much that I can own more then 2000 sqm parcel with nearly 1000 prims. So why I should care about the words “high” and “traffic”?

But enough about this…

When peoples arrived to get informations about the second mainstore which is empty right now.. they said.. “Oh bad traffic”. But why? I mean they rent a Mainstore.. do they think i will do her business? I dont want to sell ther products.. I just offer empty space as Mainstore for someone.. so they need to do own business.

I have my own Mainstore near the empty one… and I sell there because i advertice my SL company much.

Some peoples are complicated.. they think they could rezz them Products in my second Mainstore (the empty one) and never come back but sell.. if they use this method they defenetly wont sell any Product.. this is for sure. Nevermind where they rent.

If I rent a little 30 or 50 prim shop for my products.. i see if the location have some traffic as well… (But I wouldnt search for 30 k high traffic areas). But if i rent a mainstore.. it would be necessary that i do something for it, that peoples come in and buy my products… i wouldnt ask the land manager to do my work.

I hope that some day peoples understand that “traffic” is just a number which is calculated by Avatars on Land per Time. But it isnt an indicator that give you better sales… exspecialy not if we think about bot areas.

So in my opinion traffic isnt necessary. My landmark, notecard and more is much more powerful then this number.. because I still sell with a traffic less then 2k.

Im also shocked that the rezz&go mentality has arrived in the mainstore section too… or I didnt notice that all the month because i just started to rent land for other peoples.

Well who knows.. more essential is that i know how to do my own business.. and thats running already.

Greetings at all  :)


So much changes on my land…

Pretty much changes.. im to tired to list it all here today. But I will do this soon. I will also show off some screenshots. I think my work was very great today. Im very happy with my new building on my land.

More details soon.

:)


Expanding my Land

Yesterday i did expand. My neighboor did offer me to sell me his land which is directly my neighboor land. This was just awesome because i need more prims but also more space. So there will be a lot changes next days. I will rebuild the whole structure.. But first I need to collect some ideas.

I will tell you more details about the new project soon.

Tons of differend professional Tip Jars, Donation Objects and other Club Gear….

We had some changes in our second floor. We offer differend club gear and club equipment in our second floor.
We did add the best tip jars you can get in Second Life. I think everybody knows Alicia Stella´s Products.
Its defenetly highquality.. I use several of here products. So much options to setup.. just great. Well and thats why i started to offer her products in my mall too commission based.

I would be happy if you visit my place and give her products a try if you still dont know them. They are really the best tip jars you can get in Second Life.

Here is my Club Gear Store:

Why I dislike Midnight Mania today…

Long time ago my first impression of the whole Midnight Mania thingy was very great…

For me it was a chance to show peoples my products. Peoples got the chance to get differend products for free.

When Midnight Mania gots popular and i started to use these Boards too, i was able to get good and bad feedback about my products. I did like that because i learn directly from feedback.. this is one way to get better.

But how does it looks today?

Well in my opinion the Midnight Mania Community changed a lot. Peoples are not even able to say “Hello” if i greet them.. they arent even able to say “Thank You” if they did win anything..

I guess 80 % of these peoples who visit my shop because of the Midnight Mania Board are very barefaced.

Sometimes a little “Hello” or “Thank You” would be great… but I only notice 20% of peoples are so kind.

At the moment i think about removing my Midnight Mania Board because i dislike it if peoples grab free stuff but dont leave any comment or word if they arrive or leave.

My opinion changed.. let me think about this a while.


Philip Linden leaving Linden Labs…

Posted by Philip Linden on 15-Oct-2009 17:52:12:

… wherein Pip tells all of his new plans, there are some initial worries, but in the end everyone is ok.

I’m starting a new company, and wanted to let you know. It’s a big idea – something that actually depends on Second Life existing to get started, and that I have been thinking about almost as long as I’ve been thinking about Second Life. I don’t want to try to explain the idea here, because it is a decision I’ve just made and honestly I don’t think I can do a good job describing it yet. But I did want to tell the whole SL community, because I don’t want you to worry that anything is wrong:

I will still be chairman, as I have been since leaving the job as CEO. The change is that I’m not going to be working full-time at Linden Lab anymore (some of you might have thought I wasn’t still there, but actually I have been!). I’ll still be doing the same outbound and media type things as before – talking about Second Life, etc.

For the last year and a half since M started as CEO, we’ve been working very closely together. Much of my actual Linden work has been time spent with M. We have literally sat at the same pod, 5 feet away from each other, and have met multiple times a week. We’re now at a place where I feel really comfortable that Second Life and Linden Lab are OK without me being here day to day anymore. M (and others) have also managed to hire a bunch of diverse, smart, passionate people who I feel can very capably lead the company. Do I always agree with everything they are doing? Of course not! What founder would? It’s like when your teenagers leave home – of course you still worry and wish they would listen to you more! But at some point you believe that they are safe enough to live on their own. I believe that the mission of building the digital world is safe in the hands of the Lindens, which means that I can start working again at full intensity on this new project. It’s very exciting.

Also, I’ve got a new island in-world – it’s called ‘P Squared’. I’m thinking it can become a sort of extended space for my new work life. Please come and visit, and don’t be surprised if I give you something to do. And as for all of you – the people all over the world who have built Second Life – you all feel very near and dear to me, and I want you to be a part of this next adventure. I can’t say enough, or say thank you enough, about the experience that has been watching Second Life come to life. On a personal level, it has deeply changed me. I am a different and better person, in part through the experience of being in Second Life with all of you. So anyway… I’ll keep you posted, as I get things more sorted out.

Translation Service Price Adjust

I did calculate a new price for my translation service english to german. I fill orders now for the multiplier 1,5L$ per word. I use following website tool to count the words:

Word Count Tool

Examples:

50 Words translated from english to german = 75L$
100 Words translated from english to german = 150L$
250 Words translated from english to german = 375L$
500 Words translated from english to german = 750L$
1000 Words translated from english to german = 1500L$
1500 Words translated from english to german =  2250L$
2000 Words translated from english to german = 3000L$

All based on the  multiplier 1,5L$ multiplied by the amount of words in your text.

Greetings

Today is Columbus Day

I did find out that today is columbus day. So i thought it would be great if i also start to travel and maybe to find new land! But i did this in Second Life. And What did I find? I did find an empty little island! Isnt this cool? I thought it would be cool if i relax there the rest of my day.. you may think i am bored today. And your right I am. So im sorry for my little bored story. But I had the feeling to tell you anything. Hey and here is a screenshot of me on the little island. I did close my eyes because this is the way how I relax. Ok but now true.. Who wouldn´t like to be on a island for some days? This must be more then great and i wish i could spend my holidays with my family some day on a island. I think all could need that. Sun, sound of the ocean, sound of the birds, sand on our foots… and.. Oh i started with the topic of the columbus day but now i dream about holidays? Haha yes I said I am bored. What about you? Would you like to find a lonely place? A new place? A quit place? A Place withoout all the city noises? For some weeks? That would be great or? I would like to know what did Christopher Columbus feel when he and his crew did discover new land. It was an adventure for sure!

This time i did write the german text of the Hermes One Mp3 Player and Radio.

You can get informations about the product here:

Hermes One Mp3 Player and Radio Link

I think everyone need an Mp3 Player… yes in Second Life too!


First translation accumulation finished…

Yesterday i did meet a person who own a Second Life Business. He did read in a forum that i offer english to german translations because i can read english very well and i am native german.

After the price negotiation i got the job. And i started…

It was a long text but i was able to finish the translation into german language. My first accumulation but it was so much fun and i was a little bit proud about my self because the end result was very well.

So i dont want to hold this back… especially because his products seem very interesting and i guess his products will be famous gridwide soon. Its seems professional and thats what you need to know! :)

I did translate his Hermes Mp3 Publisher Product.

Please read about this product.

Here is the english product listing:

Hermes Second Life Mp3 Burner

And here the german product listing:

Hermes Second Life Mp3 Brenner

You realy cant imagine what you can do with this product!

This is a very great tool for second life artists but also for second life record labels.

You really can burn your own SLCD´s and publish them wherever you like on the grid!

So check that out and read all his details. This could be interesting for some of you.

About the translation:

Not only that, but he will tell whoever touches him all about slapt.me and give them landmarks together with some fabulous freebies!

In fact you can use Slappy to give away any information or anything you choose including your own freebies simply by dropping them into his contents.

Whenever he’s touched for the first time he’ll deliver all his contents in a neat folder.

He know’s if he’s been touched before by an avatar so then when touched he will just squawk with joy and flap his wings.

How fabulous is that!?
