SL doesn't backup your inventory, apparently.
For those of you playing at home, Moo Money, one of SL’s foremost machinimists, and having been in-world for something like 4 years now, has had her inventory eaten by LL.
This isn’t a temporary thing. It’s really gone.
That’s insane.People have put years, millions of dollars, and billions of man-hours making stuff to put in our inventory, and we have also spent millions (if not billions) buying it!
And yet, because LL didn’t think to back stuff up, it’s gone. Forever.
This is indefensible. Doubly so because we have no way to save our intellectual property.
When I make a house there is no realistic way I can select it and go “save as”. SL has no prim export feature. It’s been something they’ve been “looking into” for about 3 years now.
Well, now’s about the time to get the Love Machine rolling, because there’s really little incentive to keep plugging away in this little metaverse thing until I can, you know, save my shit from a database wipe.
So yeah. Nothing LL can do. So you might as well take a good long look at your inventory (all 100,000 items of it) and wistfully kiss it goodbye.
