Nothing up their sleeves!

My monkey is missing. As if by magic. Vanished into thin air. No trace. Not even a banana peel left in his little folder.
I never thought it would happen to me. I tried to pretend it wasn't happening. But I had to face it - over the past two weeks, holes have been appearing in my inventory.

Who or what is behind this SLeight of hand? I would sure as heck like to know since the same illusion has been performed on an entire living room set, a laboratory-in-a-box, clothing, [cough] "special" furniture [cough] and home decor. Unfortunately, you have probably experienced the same problem. Well, maybe not the laboratory-in-a-box thing.
I will admit that I have been very lucky up until now. I have never had an issue with the asset server making a light snack out of my possessions. So, when it happened, I was more than a little astonished. I contacted customer support, but oddly, they didn’t seem to be as surprised.
Me vs. Customer Support.
(Wow, the Customer Support guy bears a striking resemblance to modern day magician, David Blaine, doesn't he? And don't get jealous of my mad PhotoShop skillzzz.)

I am not sure why the company that manages my favorite computer-based simulated environment is not taking the issue more seriously. After clearing my cache and re-logging 753 times, I began to feel like someone was playing a dirty trick on me. (Obviously, I am not a quick learner. I am an optimist, though.)

So, please take a minute to vote for JIRA SVC-553 to fix the glitch causing inventory items to disappear. Or your monkey is next.


  1. look in my profile picks- there is something you can do to get stuff back- if it's a recent loss.

  2. Babe, you can share my monkey anytime ;-)

  3. Sometimes I think it would be a relief if I lost some inventory, because my inventory is just so BIG. But with my luck, it would be half my ETD hair collection and then you'd see me on the phone with the LL concierge screaming, "Don't you know who I AM?!"

    I hope it's recovered soon!!

  4. Did you know you have RSS issues, Tymmerie?

    "Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4"

    Maybe the monkey gremlin-ed your feed and then did one.

  5. Thanks, Kesseret!

    Oh Babe! Your generosity is one of the reasons that I love you!

    Alicia: LOL - I would love to use that line (Don't you know who I am?") just once in my life with a straight face. Also, gotta love Concierge, no?

    Marnix - what is RSS? and how did you find out I had a problem with it? (I am not very computer savvy.)

  6. OMG!!! I did an owner return on my old land and EVERYTHING disappeared. Fortunately with some begging and whining, Linden finally gave me a 'good will' payment to replace my lost things, including my house (!!!) and a 5300 sex bed.
