I agree with Arcadia - the infohubs really need to be cleaned up, or maybe cleaned OUT. The first thing a new resident encounters is some drunk guy cussing out some drunk girl, both of them shouting obscenities at the top of their lungs in voice, in a PG sim. Welcome to Second Life, now meet some of our outstanding citizens. What a great first experience for someone who's trying to decide whether to stay in SL or not. Most infohubs are not used for helping newbies these days. They have become hangout locations where one or two dominant personalities hold court with their followers and ignore everyone else. There are places like Bear and Boardroom where newbies can still get help, but those places are rare. The infohubs need someone on duty with parcel powers to keep them newbie-friendly.
WHAT IF THE TWO SEPARATE HYPERLINKS IN THIS STORY BOTH WENT TO THE SAME PAGE?
Rod updated his profile: "cool. Just to be clear Jan is when we will be giving a timeline/ plans on what we will be doing :) Expect Q1 2012 for it actually to be done." So what kind of extra sweet revisions could they make that they didn't have before? The mind begins to boggle...
Race-baiting used to be the easy way out of any tight spot. Just accuse the authorities of being racist and the news media will be on your side. But after multiple investigations from multiple outside agencies in Arizona and elsewhere, where no racist actions were ever found, the accusers are losing their credibility. Even the mainstream media outlets are now ignoring Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, two of the most frequent violators. Racial profiling is illegal everywhere. No one does it any more. Shouting "You're a racist" all day every day does no good other than to point out that the person doing the shouting is guilty and trying to get himself out of trouble by lying.
[GrouchoMarxVoice]That's the most ridiculous thing I ever heard![/GrouchoMarxVoice] So the only two choices are either everyone donates a large, probably unattainable amount, or the developer gets no money at all? That makes very little sense unless the goal all along was to abandon the project and place the blame on the users. It's like the old Laurel and Hardy line, "NOW look what you made me do!" If the developer wants to supplement his income with donations from the users, he can do that the way most other people on the planet do it; put a PayPal icon on the web page and send a thank you note to everyone who gives.
@Inara "Problem there, Ann, is there is no guarantee of continued funding." One guarantee is that if the viewer goes away, the funding will drop to zero. Also, ending support for the viewer is disrespectful to those who have already donated. These are difficult times financially. Many people have their hands out looking for money, and most are glad to have whatever donations they can get. Take the money, thank those who donated, and work on the viewer as time allows.
