How to deal with reporting

So you found a cheat?

Or someone breaking Terms of Service?

Or whatever it may be?


Ok so, firstly, kicking up in LGH chat is not the best way to go about it.



- Well firstly, it's highly likely said person is in chat, so you just alerted them that someone may be coming to watch, so they'll stop and not be caught in the act.


- Second, depending on your action, it may be a breach of the chat room policy, leading to an issue that then needs to be dealt with and making longer time for staff to go check on the person being reported. Being chat room is first seen, and something that can easily spiral out of control, it will be the first thing dealt with.


So what is the best way?

Simple, send an IM to an active staff member, you can usually see who is active in chat, this is a reason why staff talk a lot so you know we are active. However if we aren't, still you can IM Dayz or KevDee, we are sometimes still floating around when we are not talking, while generally we are in our own time, doing our own thing, we will come deal with a ToS breach if we are able to.


Why do this?

Well simply, you have not alerted the person they are about to be watched, they have no idea a staff may come or we may send in one our unknown alts to watch. So more chance they'll be caught in the act. Also you have ensured you have not put yourself in breach of chat room policy and made staff deal with a chat room issue first.

Now if staff aren't on what can you do?


- LOGS, logs are your best friend, they can prove a lot.

- Bump logs, depending on viewer, there is a log that records bumps, pushes and so forth that prove a difference between a accidental bump vs purposeful pushing or pushing with a script. Consult your viewers help group on how to view this.

- SCREENSHOTS, these can be invaluable, they show things in real time and can't be edited, it shows your chat or what is happening, hard to argue proof.


What else can you do?

Ask a staff for a complaint form, if these forms are not used and staff can't catch them in the act, nothing will be done. These forms are policy, staff cannot go outside policy, so help us help you and deal with issues. Fill out a complaint form. Ask any staff for one, we will happily send one, or get one for the help center under 'support' button - http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Business%20Park/110/219/21


Is that all you can do?


Here is a wonderful tool, https://obsproject.com/download

A wonderful very user friendly video tool that will record your game window. Who can agrue with video evidence? 

It is very resource friendly so as not to cause PC lag with a half decent computer, then you just upload the saved video to youtube or any video sharing site, and send to staff via IM or in your complaint form. Video proof is the BEST proof, no one can argue video evidence.


So remember, the more you do and the less policy you break the more chance a person in breach of ToS will be dealt with in accordance to our ToS policy, the less you do or the more fuss you make and policy you break, the less chance they'll be dealt with and more chance you'll be the one ending up in the cross hairs.

So please, work with us, not against us.

Presenting The SILVER MINING GAME part of [SES] Silver Economy Simulation

This is a presentation of Silver Mining Game Concept in Second Life that I did in chat of Linden Gold Hunters Group (currently 37 007 group members) Click here to see the Questions & Comments PART All right I wanted to make this presentation for many days already. Ever since I sent a notice with EUREKA in it about a week ago... When I figured it out - all the components fell in together nicely... It came out like a beautiful game system - that can produce in SL a role playing sub-currency as a virtual product in a way that Linden Lab won't see it as a problem (no money laundering potential and other legal problems). And ofcourse before any production I'll present it to Linden Lab produc

Social Media Integration into Second Life can grow Second Life

I'd like to just give a concrete example to the decision makers in Linden Lab about how much the discord can boost the sales of virtual products in Second Life. We have recently started a viral marketing campaign for our breedables product in Second Life. Following is excerpt from our 35 000+ members group in Second Life that through a web hook we broadcast onto our discord chat server. I copied a quick screen capture using gyazo that enables instant screenshot uploaded to their server and we get a link to share with others. Discord displays images from links. As a SL group we are not afraid of spammers, we have strict TOS, we have 2 - 3 people constantly watching chatter and even when they

Ok so, this question gets asked A LOT so I thought I would take the time to write my findings as a PLAYER, not as staff. When I joined LGH and started fishing a little over 2 years ago, I was told it would take me several years to even reach top 100 let alone see good profits. Being I don't really listen to others or like to be told what I can or can't achieve I prefer to set myself goals and set forward to learn it for myself. Now I am going to state this clearly now, I NEVER used the credit system, I NEVER invested my own money into the game and did everything through earnings and profit. I started with a free rod and 50 free worms, worked hard and fished hard, 12-18hrs a day. Through this
