    Regular Race Dates
    Every Saturday thats Not a Cross Country Day from above
    Starting on the 13th of March
    but at 11:00 AM.

    The Cross Country Races
    This is a really fun event. You can pick up the free Giant Snail avatar at Just touch the snail box there.
    Get a pimp my snail kit while your there it has a lot of things you can use to mod your snail if you want. The scarfs ARE on sale you can come by and buy a starting position scarf this gets your name added to the finish line so you'll hopefully get counted(we've had more trouble with this finish line one of these days well get it to work right) anyway I think I have it fixed this time.
    The scarf donation prices are

    1500 for a front starting position
    500 for a middle starting position and
    1 to be in the back starting position.

    All Donations go to the American Cancer Society
    then show up 30 or more minutes before the race get rezzed get your draw distance set low and simple and get ready to go. Here's what a race looks like

    Oh to enter the the NEW best dressed Snail of the days race contest contact Sante Klees to get your snail modeling shots filmed after you get your snail modded. Well try to get someone from Fabulous Fashion to pick the winner maybe. This will give us something to show people when the snails aren't near a camera positions during the races.

    race results

    We have a lot of folks that watch and want to be a part of the race but for one reason or the other don't race. Here is the way they can be involved without having to drive a snail.

    They can sponsor a snail
    The sponsor would pledge so many L$ on a snail for each sim they went through. Depending on the place of the snail at the finish of the race the amount would be more.

    for example

    10th or below.......1L per sim,
    7th...........................4L, ect. to 1st place where the amount would be 10 L per sim for a maximum donation of 600L for the 60 sim race.

    So if a snail can get just 10 sponsors, the race it could add 6000 to the kiosks.

    The sponsors will even get a little plaque saying they sponsored the Great Giant Snail Race of 2010!
    They could even get a little plaque saying they sponsored the Great Giant Snail Race of 2010! 1st 2nd and 3rd being fanciful some way.

    The more sponsors the bigger the bragging rights for bringing in the highest donation amount for that race/year.

    The donations and would all be between the snail and the sponsors please tp your sponsor to one of our Kiosks to pay it.

    500 o mas para salir en el medio

  • Menu overlay issue   7 years 32 weeks ago

    nope still got the same one, doh

  • Menu overlay issue   7 years 32 weeks ago

    hi there! i tryed too to changed profile picture.
    It is true, profile picture not changes at the moment, but if you wait some hours it will changes. Just need time to make the change. sorry english.

  • Menu overlay issue   7 years 32 weeks ago

    The evil forces are telling me your too optimistic so im going to throw another bug at ya <-lol

    Treet tv profile pictures wont change ahh! Just tried it, deleted my current picture then uploaded another to have the same one show up on the site doh >.<
    I tryed a few methods including logging out and back in, renaming the picture im uploading, double checked file size and width requirements and no go.

    btw I didnt do it.

  • Image rendering quality loss after upload   7 years 32 weeks ago

    I think the photo gallery software should come secondary to the sites performance but ive never had a problem with your site, the quality setting upgrade didn't show me much of a difference (but we are talking about a fairly large picture), and good comment about waiting and seeing if people use it alot before allocating site resources to facilitate a feature only I seem concerned about.

  • Menu overlay issue   7 years 32 weeks ago

    Don't spend too many hours contemplating alternatives. :-)

    It's actually a pretty simple fix that involves a Flash player parameter ("wmode") that needs to be set to the value "transparent". Usually that fixes such problems, though I have to do a bunch of testing to be sure it doesn't break anything else.

    At least, I hope that's the simple fix (it has worked on many other sites in the past for us). My luck, there is some new and curious reason why it won't this time. :-)

  • Menu overlay issue   7 years 32 weeks ago

    Hmm only thing that comes off the top of my head to address this problem would be to simply have the shows button not cascade down (I think the link is self explanatory) and we're not in the 56k days no more yay!, taking time to load the shows page is a matter of little importance to anyone with broadband.. just something on the top of my head though its not as if I spent hours contemplating alternatives.

  • Menu overlay issue   7 years 32 weeks ago

    Yes any link off site should be a new tab or browser window but.. after reading your post i got to thinking that the new beta viewer 2.0 doesn't open new browser windows or tabs so maybe with being so involved with second life it may be a better idea to keep that setting the way it is until some kind of multi window functionality comes to media in secondlife. Alternatively I use ctr+left click on the desired link for new tabs and shift + click for new windows on my windows machine in firefox.

  • Menu overlay issue   7 years 32 weeks ago

    I wonder if some links should pop up a new window and other shouldn't. For example, if somebody links elsewhere on the current site, people wouldn't expect a popup. Or, if the link is to something that has moved. I can think of a lot of times where having the link pop up a new window may not be desirable.

    It is possible for people to do it themselves of course, like this:

    Visit our business site in a new window

    On the mac, I tend to use the "command-click" feature of firefox to open new tabs (I prefer to put everything in new tabs myself). I am wondering whether it may be better to let people manage popups and tab links according to their preferences?

  • Menu overlay issue   7 years 32 weeks ago

    Ahhh, menus disappearing under the flash player. I'll get that fixed, probably within the week. Thanks for pointing it out. Note that if you are going back to the VSN simboarding main page, the title at the top-right (the name of the show), is clickable, and that may be a good shortcut.

    Any feedback on improving these things is vastly appreciated.

  • Image rendering quality loss after upload   7 years 32 weeks ago

    Things should be vastly improved now. But a few note.....

    Even when the image uploaded is exactly the same size as it is displayed, the system still "resaves it" using standard site-wide quality settings. The reason the site does this is to make sure that all the images on the site have comparable quality and size.

    So, for example, the image you originally uploaded (seen in the crop display) is you original image, exactly as you uploaded it. But, when it appears in the final gallery (and elsewhere on the site), it is reprocessed, and that's where the quality suffering was happening. I have increased the site-wide setting of the reprocessing quality which should make all images look a lot better. I took a look at the one you uploaded, and it looks much, much better. But, if you get out your magnifying glass, you may see slight differences.

    I will look into some way to make the photo gallery images available as higher quality. In fact, I may look into replacing the photo gallery software with something better if people do use it a lot.

    Let me know what you think.

  • Image rendering quality loss after upload   7 years 32 weeks ago

    You are sooooo right. Good eye.

    Let me take a look at why that happens, I am sure I can fix it.

  • Menu overlay issue   7 years 32 weeks ago

    hmm id like to add a suggestion after clicking my own link and that would be for links clicked inside users comments to be opened on a new page or tab. =) geese im on a roll today

  • Second Life 2.0 Viewer   7 years 33 weeks ago

    For the curious, this episode was not filmed using the new 2.0 viewer. It includes a short pre-recorded clip as a demo that illustrates one of the media features.

  • How to Add Images to Your Postings and Blogs   7 years 33 weeks ago

    Thanks, Wiz; problem solved :)

  • How to Add Images to Your Postings and Blogs   7 years 33 weeks ago

    I think it's fixed now, Gareth8, thanks for your patience.

    The problem has to do with "security between windows", and the "blank image" applied only to images in comments. It should all work fine now.

    Note that:

    • Images in comments should work fine.
    • Images in postings (forum, blog, etc) should work fine.
    • You no longer have disable Javascript, as advised above.

    Please keep me posted on additional problems! THANKS!

  • How to Add Images to Your Postings and Blogs   7 years 34 weeks ago

    I'm trying to upload an image, but when I click on 'Add image' all I get is a completely blank page. Could it be a Windows 7 or Firefox 3.6 issue?

  • How do you show pictures in the forum   7 years 34 weeks ago

    This got answered under I new topic in the Forum I think. Is this what you are looking for?

  • How do you show pictures in the forum   7 years 34 weeks ago

    So how long are days in Australia? Are you on that month long day cycle?
    Didn't we have a add a picture button somewhere? I can't find that anymore. Zen says I can use HTML to show pictures in the forum. Could you explain how that's done or show me where the button is again?
