Just Another Boring Blog About Different Subjects

Second Life Business

Ok… So you are Second Life blogger? Then this might be interesting for you!

So if you are Second Life blogger with or without Business, I found a Blog which might be interesting for you. The Blog is called Blogging Second Life and it´s a Project of Cajsa Lilliehook, Evelyn Hartshon and a few other Volunteers. Basicly explained they build a comprehensive Directory for Second Life blogger and stores/creators. They wrote it consists of three sections.

1. Blogs – a directory of travel, commentary, magazine, fashion, roleplay and other blogs about Second Life.

2. The Stores and Creators Lists – a directory of SL businesses with links to creator profiles (for slurls), store blogs and marketplace storefronts

3. Connections Databases. Bloggers who accept review copies are encouraged to add their information to the searchable database for creators to use to find new bloggers for their items. Musicians and DJs are also encouraged to add their info to an Entertainment database for event planners and club owners to use when looking for new dj’s and musicians.

You can register your Second Life related Blog and Second Life related Business adresses like your Marketplace Link or SURL there. I found the idea of this kind of Directory pretty great and registered there too. You just need to fill out the form but it´s pretty great explained on their Directory Blog.

If you like the idea.. dont forget to inform your blogger friends.

220 different Marketplace Storefronts and over 500 different Second Life Blogs are already registered there. So hurry up and just register there. :)


Marketplace speed increase?

Since Direct Delivery is arrived in Second Life, I noticed that the SL Marketplace was very very slow. Other People did notice the same. I had the feeling that SL Marketplace was always somewhat slow but Direct Delivery did make it unusable for many People.

Today in the morning I logged in and now it everything seems to be very fast. Looks like the Rush of People who wanted to log in for the DD changes is away now or Linden Labs did change anything. What ever it is.. I just hope it stays like now. It´s pretty fast to load the Page now.


Finished my Marketplace Direct Delivery work..

Second Life Marketplace Direct Delivery has arrived and I finished to change all my Products to the new System.

If you are Second Life Merchand and still didn´t know about Direct Delivery or that Direct Delivery has arrived, you should take a look here to get started:

Marketplace Direct Delivery has arrived!

 



Saving a notecard inside a prim. “The server is experiencing unexpected difficulties”.

Lately some of my customers wrote me that they cant save the Confignotecard of Heart Tipjar in Second Life. But when the first Customer explained me the problem, I was not able to reproduce the error at least whith main Avatar which did create this Tipjar. But this is because this Avatar has full permission on this Item anyway.

I thought it would be better to check it out with my Alt. And see there… I wasn´t able to save the Notecard too then.

I got the “The server is experiencing unexpected difficulties” errormessage when saving a notecard inside the prim.

At the same time I asked google for the Problem and found out there is already a open Jira Ticket:

“The server is experiencing unexpected difficulties” error when saving a notecard inside a prim.

So if you anytime notice the same Problem with one of your Products or if you get customer request that they cant save your confignotecard then there is one workaround for you which will fix the Problem for your customers. Indee you should update your Marketplace listing then as well. :P

You need to change at least the Confignotecard to FullPermission which shouldn´t be a problem for you. I cant tell you why the Notecard has to be FullPerm. I just can tell you it will fix the problem and other People commented the same on the Jira. It is anyway nevermind if the Confignotecard is Full Permission. I usualy did create them Copy and Mod only but now they are Fullperm.

So dont expect that LL will fix the issue. Looks like the Jira is open already for years.

However I did fix my Product and had a lot of work telling all my Customers of this Product to delete the old Tipjar so that they can use the new one. I think most of them were very happy that I did send a new Version. And I was also happy that one of my Customers did tell me about the Problem. Its fun to see that not anybody will report Problems. This makes me thinking if they ever did unpack the Product.. if they ever did login to SL again or what is wrong? :D This was sadly a Problem I could not see with my main. For the future I should test scripted objects from time to time with my alt. For new Products I do it anyway but looks like this Problem did appear since some month. I am sure I did not see this Problem with my alt when I created the Tipjar.

However. Everything ok now.

 


Important note for Content Creators and SL Marketplace Merchants about Maturity Level and the Word “PE” in your Description!

If you use the Word “PE” in the field of description or in the field of keywords on your Listing then it might happen that your Item will be flagged as “adult” Maturity Level. It happened to my latest Product Stage Lightning Truss Creator Kit on the Marketplace and I really was confufed as this Item is defenetly not an adult Product. So I had a hard time to find out whats wrong which took an half our. Later I just changed the Words “PE” to “Prims” and the Item is now flagged “General” as intended.

As PE is the Shortcut for the Objects Server Weight, Streaming weight and Physics weight I really dont understand why the Item will be flagged as “adult” if the description and keywords section contains the Word “PE”.

However for those who used the Word in the Description I though I better send out this Info so that you can proof if all your Items are flagged well. I mean imagine that… if the Product contains differend Parts which all have a differend PE, then some of us may want to write the differend values down in the Description. But looks like this is not possible, so that you know.

EDIT: I just found out that PE (Prim Equivalent) is today called LI (Land Impact) anyway. So I should try the Word LI instead of PE. :D Right.. tested it now. “LI” is ok as a Word.
