Over 600,000 residents in
SL are affected by a group bug which does not allow owners of groups
over 10.000 people to rezz the members' list in order to invite new
people and assign their roles. This bug spoils our
social activity for TWO YEARS and LL is not going to fix it!
What does that mean? Many people use groups to socialize in SL with
other people around the world. Groups are the primary social
networking tool in SL! The quality of groups depends on how much
effort their owners and managers put into it. We add new designers to
our fashion groups, assign roles to our tenants in land groups,
invite customers to our store groups. And when our groups became
popular, LL thwarts our efforts to improve the quality of our entire
Second Life experience, and treats the time we spent creating
socializing opportunities for residents as being worthless!
means no popular groups, no quality hunt gifts, no parcels with
lower price, no store group freebies, no promotion for new spots
BECAUSE of no incentive. Owners and managers with a group over 10.000
members were very proud, but now its just a nightmare because we
have so many people and do not have a right to communicate with them
properly! Our work is literally paralyzed!
We all must unite
to show that we do exist! Please, support the Vic Zuzu Pact against
Second Life Bugs and Linden Lab Inaction! We ask you to save the
main instrument for socialization and making friends in SL - our
groups! Because we do all this only for you!
log in, push
"Vote" and "Watch" links at the official Second Life support portal
(on the right column under "People" tab). Right now it has
just 300 votes and 60 watchers. Obviously, LL will never
consider the problem with so few votes and watchers.
goal: 10.000 votes and 10.000 watchers!
We believe that our initiative will stimulate LL to fix this
and all other bugs in Second Life faster, will start a dialog
between LL administration and SL society!
Vic Zuzu, President of MHOH Foundation.
The Vic Zuzu Pact (07/18/12)
We, as owners and managers of the most successful
groups in Second Life, as the main social agents of communication in
the virtual space, as clients of LL, in order to promote equal
responsibility for both LL administration and the SL community,
state the following:
The unilateral imposing of
norms and behavior rules to date is an insufficient condition of
Second Life functioning as a virtual community.
As the leading provider in the field of virtual
living, Linden Lab must have a higher degree of responsibility
for the quality and functionality of the virtual environment.
System bugs with severe priority must be fixed
within a period of 28 working days starting from the date of the
Founders with owner's role of
leading groups over 10,000 members must have social agent
status among average residents in Second Life if they do not
follow RL commercial purposes.
Social agents must be informed
about fixing process of bugs with severe priority connected with
their activity once a week by responsible for fixing linden
We urgently invite Linden Lab
representatives to the dialog with Second Life
