he says, there's barbed wire at all of these exits

Anyone read UUID?

[3:26] MystiTool HUD 1.0.23: Collision with "73772908639014 Linden", Owner: fe165e8d-e79e-4dbb-809e-5918ead67ac0

If it's not one thing, it's another. Tonight? It was giant boxes griefing Rivula.


I love Rivula, I do. I admit it. I unabashedly love the sim, in spite of the fact that it was left on a category 3 server when the whole of the grid had been converted to category 5. I love it in spite of lag, in spite of weird Polish neighbors, in spite of the sheer tonnage of new folks--many of them naked--who wander through the sim en masse.

Which is why it's all the more frustrating when people grief Rivula. Because really, what the hell do we do?


I mean, think about it. We're hardly a "name" sim, even to the folks at the Labs--as evidenced by the fact that they forgot about Rivula entirely when the update happened. We're quiet--by mainland standards, nearly abnormally so--and generally, the only oddities we have? We bring in.

Well, God, sure, but hey, he's mostly gone from the sim now.


But out of the blue, this. Gigantic 'dissenting' boxes. They didn't do anything but exist, largely, but it was frustrating. I got knocked off the dock initially, before we noticed them, and then all hell broke loose in box form.


And people, people, please--if you're going to be stupid and grief some sim full of folks you don't even know, could you at least do something for me? One little thing?


disagreement and argument [Latin dissentire to dissent]

THANK you. Idiots.

[!!!] I don't know what led them there, or how you guys got it cleaned up, but I'll make sure Melanippe knows - she's a full member of the Justice League Unlimited now, and they can help with response speed.

That would be lovely. I do believe Hank--my landlord in Rivula--cleared away the clutter after the sim died, but it was tricky there for a bit.

Still wasn't as bad as September '06, the month where small party hats became able to induce phobic horror spikes. One day in Rivula Hank and I must have cleared away over 200 small chirping hats from the land!

Please contact me when I'm online this evening for a JLU signal. We know how to deal with this kind of incident.

Quick advice though: write abuse reports, preferably with snapshots included. Better still 5 or more from separate avatars.

Best regards,
Kara Timtam

I'll do that; and also, I'd left abuse reporting to those who own the sims, but if you think it will help, absolutely, I'll start filing ARs. And sending along pictures!

Holy crap!

Still, it's not as good as this

But blimey!

This? Very true. Always makes you look stupider than the opposition if you can't spell words on the big sign.
