J’AI OUBLIÈ LE LIVRE

March 19, 2010

This I could at least wish for. Once in a while. To be disconnected. No
SL addiction, more of a disconnection from 1st Life.

Ooh.. It’s Friday! Nevermind disconnection from 1st life, I hope a weekend can do the same trick 🙂

“‘Why did you put me on the list?!‘ the reply I got was:  Well, you was in my store. I thought you’d like to get the updates’!!”

I bet all of you have been running into these “Subscribe-O-Matic” things on Second Life. They’re used by creators to send out notices to their buyers. They doesn’t even take up a group-slot, which is great!

Now to another thing.. My friend has just been blurting, once again how these “Subscribe-O-Matics” are soo annoying .Ehm, well, and… I am ready to agree!

If I don’t subscribe myself, or without knowledge, it’s pure crap. They just spam and one gets pissed off. Also, I have been added to databases myself without even buying anything from the creator. Instead they added me when I was near them or I don’t know how!
I once asked to be removed and I asked “why did you put me on the list?!” the reply I got was “Well, you was in my store. I thought you’d like to get the updates”!! (Obviously I didn’t want to! I didn’t even take the freebies… I was just checking out an outfit my friend told me about. I didn’t even buy anything, grrr.)

(Be sure I will NOT visit your damn store again! Never ever since you didn’t have any place to unsubscribe on.)

The problem is not when you, by free will, choose to subscribe to them and get updates from your fav. creator. They’re a PROBLEM when you get AUTOMATICALLY subscribed to them by buying something from a certain creator or when just accepting a gift. However you can usually contact the creator and ask them to remove you from the database but this shouldn’t be needed.

Please, ASK ME!! Let me decide myself!! Once again, please. 😦
