I wish it would not take one month or more for someone at Activeworlds to
answer a question sent by e-mail.
One seems to get things handled fast(ish) by phoning them, but it is
expensive to phone them from outside USA. ( What makes it expensive is the
time you are waiting for the women who answers the phone to find Tom (who
seems to be handling everything in there ))
When I write sales and I am buying someting Tom answer the same day, but
when I write support Tom answers in 3-5 weeks.....still waiting for the
world that was won in Bingo in August.
How about getting someone there to replace Noelle?

major security problem

May 23, 2003, 11:37pm
Most private owned worlds use custom objects and those are most likely
password protected; so even with a propdump one would end up with a lot
I belive most people want to build their own worlds, those wanting a copied
worlds are probably not taking worldowning seriously anyway and will be gone

I belive all people are to some amount; we all have a so called feminine and
maskuline side.
In our society sex plays a way to big difference. People feel very
uncomfortable around people who they do not know if they are male or female.
I guess it is because of our long tradition of religions which has thought
us what is wrong or what is right. Boys shall play with cars, girls with
dolls etc.

Well, most animals just have sex , no long term relationships with second
mortage on nest, counceling etc ( I am aware some animals live as partners
the whole life tho).
I assume you with this mean that if you have sex with everything that moves
(men and women) it would not make you bi-sexual, since you do not establishe
a willing relationship?

I have also hoped for objects to be able to transport avatars, without
complicated bump and warp commands.

The fact that is been requested several times, should ring a bell at AWI,
but somebody said they do not even read this group. So why have a group like
this in the first place? It is like "you can wish all you want, we do not
give a fu**, we do not even bother looking what you request".

I also wonder what happened to the skinned avatars, that was to be supported
in 3.4 ? Now they are already working on 3.5 and what I have heard there is
nothing about the skinned avatars there either, only some new bugs
(features) that nobody even wanted in the first place.

Sep 2, 2003, 12:19pm
Ok, help me out then here. What is logical about having children pay atleat
full prize and especially the part about having prople to pay more if they
have a world for adults. Now we shall nor forget that the rating system used
is not even very suitable for a chat enviroment. I have for example a few
nude avatars in my world, I was told to raize the rating. I never understood
why tho, because they were just nude for swimming purpose. I think I got
slightly pissed and put in an x, just in case. One never know what might
offend someone. Seeing a naked pig can upset a jew or muslim, seeing a cross
that is upside down can upset a christian, seeing a cross can upset all but
christians, seeing a nude avatar can upset a narrowminded, seeing a clothed
avatar can upset a naturist, seeing a roasted turkey can upset a vegetarian
etc etc..

So I simply play safe and have it x now, but hell no, I am not going to pay
more to enter my world, just because some ppl are narrowminded hipochrits.

Kids might get same features yes, but I do not see why it could not be
cheaper. Many software providers has licenses priced differently according
to user, for example students get a cheaper license. I do not see why it
would not work in AW.

I also belive AW is losing a lot of money because they have such a negative
attitude towards especially tourists. It took me a while to figure it out,
but suddenly I realized. AW do not even want new cits. It is much more
profitable for them if they manage to keep AW an unfriendly place and make
people bu univereses.

And you are the person who decide what is offensive or not ? Lets say I find
bingo to be a very offensive game, should they make bingoworlds x-rated, or
if someone find paintball worlds offensive due to their violence?

I think we pay enough as it is, no need to start punishing people more with
higher fees. It is very simple, if you do not like a world ( lets say
x-rated) stay the fu** out of there, no need to demand higher prices for
things you do not like (understand) :-)

But hon, now you are a bit against youself, a while back you wanted higher
prices for same features for people who visit X-rated worlds.

The browser for kids could for example only allow visits to worlds rated
suitable for children ( whatever that means).

I am also fine with same price for all, if the price would be more
acceptable (like it used to be).

What have we got as the price has gone up? A worse customer service, no new
features of interest, banning of visitors, a in general more unfriendly

I do not understand what is so f**king hard to put it back where it was,
nicely to the left. Nobody likes the current one, yet they insist on having
it the crappy way. In 3.6 it seems it is still floating around like
something that do not belong to the browser.

Nothing wrong with fullscreen, one could for example press alt + f7 or
something, to get in or out from it.
Still no excuse of having a tabwindow ON the other windows. When the tabs
are on the windown, it is hard to walk straight forward and if one have it
so big that it is actually useful, it covers the chat window also.

And who is John E. Robinson Sr.? Some serial killer I assume?

And if someone has a different sexuality than you, it makes him a pervert
that equals murderer, raper, molester etc?

It seems that many people cannot see the difference between a crime and a
preference. Lets say someone who happens to be a gorean ( to put this into
aw context) commits a crime; he is not bad for doing a crime but for beeing
a gorean. It automatically leads to the conclusion all goreans are bad and
commit crimes.
Then again when i dare to critizice the catholic church for example,
disproving how the abuse of boys has been going on for decades and has been
covered up. Do I hear that someone start yelling all catholics should be
banned from AW? No, because most people probably understand that those who
has commited the crime has done it as indivduals; I wonder why this cannot
be aplied to for other people with prefernces.

I do not know if you do your best not to understand what I am saying or if
you simply do not understand; anyway it seems you get it wrong all the time.

I was not refering to the Seiya case. If he has done something criminal then
report him to the authorities. I was refering to the in general negative
attitude against x-rated worlds and to the fact that some people seem to
excigerate (sp) the danger of internet.
I still belive most rapes and killings are done in the so called real life
not in virtual reality. Broken hearts and disapointment surely on internet
but seldom any physical damage.
I even challange you or anyone else to kill or rape me over the internet,
could even offer 100$ to anyone who can do it, but in case of death that has
to be collected from my family.

Yes I have criticise religions, not the people who are tricked into beliving
in gods.

I guess it is no use continuing this much since talking to some people is
like pooring water on a goose.

Why in first place block grams? *shrug*

Once a person asked for an object; obviously he had the setting to block all
not given permission to gram.
I wrote a fairly long and nice gram telling I had now found what he wanted.
When I tried to send it, it said I cannot. I just thought WTF, not my lost.

Personally I think all this blocking and hiding is simply stupid.

Why in hell go to a chat just to hide ?
I do like the AFK mode though, because that should indicate to a person who
sends a gram that I am not able to answer it right away.
