I do bits when either there isn’t much to report or for whatever reasons I’ve missed UG meetings. This week RL work had me busy. So… its bits today.
Empirically, we seem to be seeing more inventory loss. Apparently Grumpity Linden was at the Thursday Beta Server UG meeting talking about the Lab responding to complaints. Inara made the meeting and covers the discussion (here).
I’ve seen more posts in the SL Forum about people losing inventory. The cause is generally thought to be a poor connection or a flat inventory – having everything in the root or first set of subdirectory folders.
The Lab is apparently thinking either users are accidentally self-deleting things or there is bug eating inventory. While they look for a bug they are changing the viewer’s user interface (UI) to reduce the possibility of accidental deletion.
So, at some point we will see the Empty Trash process changes and another ‘Are you sure…’ prompt when deleting things.
People seem to be having problems getting images into their profiles. See: BUG-100516.
