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.

Do you pay out your L$? And if so.. what do you buy for the money?

Collected some L$ via my Marketplace Sales and didn´t do much with it apart from paying rental for my land or texture and mesh uploads, it looks like I saved a good bunch of Linden Dollars on my “Bank Avatar” and maybe I should pay out next days. I do it every now and then.

And there comes the question what I would do with the money. And I am nosy if you pay out and what you buy for the money. Do you share your experience?

In the past I bought a lot of stuff for my fish tank in real life. As I get Second Life money on the paypal account, the best way to spend it is shopping in the internet and you know there are lots of shops which support paypal. If I am true my payouts aren´t that massive but at least after some month it can become a good amount for smaller stuff. I purshased very cool plants for my fish tank, fertilizer for these plants, I made a 30$ bargain for a Co2 equipment (used) on ebay which cost new more then 150$. Yea the Co2 bargain was a real blast and payed with money which came from Second Life. I also bought food for my fish and some stuff for my cat. Last year I bought a game via gamersgate and I did pay a lot of World of Warcraft Gamecards with my Second Life money. Yea I think thats what I did with the money in the past 3 years. It wont make me rich.. thats what I learned. So monthly that money is not a big pot but if I save it a little bit, it can indeed help me out ever and anon :) That is funny.

So how do you handle this? Do you have SL income? Do you pay out? What do you buy for the money? Or do you spend it only inworld? Or is this all top secret for you? If so.. no problem :)

New Tipjar finished – Crazy Green Emitter Tipjar

Finished this little and crazy Tipjar which will shoot with Particles after each tip (unless you did activate it in the Config Notecard). The Tipjar has much more features.. just read on :)

Or go direclty to the Marketplace Listing: Crazy Green Emitter Tipjar

THIS IS THE INSTRUCTION FOR THE TIP JAR

Feature List Summarized:

- Easy Setup with Configuration Notecard
– Every Settings are well descriped
– You as owner can choose if you want a Commission in % each Tip
– Choose if Tipjar-User will be logged out or can stay logged in if out of Range or not online anymore (You can define it in Meters)

– Choose if the Tipjar should shoot Particles after each Tip or not
– Choose if the Particles should smash on Donator or the Tipjar User if Particle Mode active
– Define the Lifetime of these Particles if Particle Mode active

How to use and change the Settings of the Product:

1. Rez the Tipjar.
2. Wait until the Initialization of the Tipjar is finished.
It´s done when you see “All configurations loaded. Tipjar ready!” in your Chat.
3. First let´s customize your Tipjar now. Right click the Tipjar and click “edit”.
4. Go to the content tab.
5. There you will find the tipjarscript and the tipjarconfig
6. Make a copy of the “tipjarconfig” notecard and take it to your Inventory, just so that you have a Backup
7. Read carefully the configuration notecard. There you will find deeper Instructions and all about what you can change and how you do it.
8. After changing the configuration be sure that you click “save”!
9. Wait again until the Tipjar is initialized.
It´s done when you see “All configurations loaded. Tipjar ready!” in your Chat.
The Tipjar will restart and initialize your tipjarconfig always if you changed and saved the config.
But after that, the Tipjar is ready to use.

Additional Hints:

When you made some Settings in the “tipjarconfig” File… and if you are happy with all Settings..
Just duplicate your Tipjar if you need more then one in your Club or Location. As you made already Settings,
the Duplicates will now have the same Settings.

You can also save your tipjarconfig in your Inventory after finishing your Settings. That is the way you can put
it back to a new rezzed Tipjar in case you did deleted every Tipjar from your Land. Good because you dont have
to make these Settings again. But be sure that you only have one tipjarconfig in your Object.

FAQ:

Q: The Tipjar is asking for Permission Debit. What the heck is going on? Can I trust you?
A: Yes, in fact you can trust me. Permission Debit is always needed in Second Life when a Script
want to take money from agent’s account. In the Case of Tipjar´s it is usualy so that your
Staff is logging into the Tipjar but you are the Owner of the Tipjar. If now someone (A Donator)
pays your Staff, the Money first goes through your Avatar and then to the Person who is logged
in to your Tipjar. So basicly the Script just ask you to get permission for this Function and to forward it
to your Staff or anyone who logged into your Tipjar. Anyway be careful in Second Life. Only give permission
if you trust the Creator of the Script you got.

FAQ will be extended in case many Customers ask similar or same Questions about one Topic
