Re: Kitely will be down for a 2 hour upgrade cycle on May 18

The site will be down for maintenance on May 18 at 12:01 AM PST (midnight). Estimated downtime is 2 hours. As a software architect I am always curious when any online service goes down for not inconsequential time whether it is possible to so architect that system that all upgrades are hot with no ...

Re: Need for 1000+ avatars region?

Hi Samantha, You're referring to Intel's Distributed Scene Graph module. We may offer such a service in the future but have no current plans to do so. Yes, that is the one. Perhaps if I get the time for the project I will attempt to produce a standalone on EC2 wired up for such. It would cost next ...

Re: Export Perm: How Much Should It Cost?

I think it should be totally market and per item driven. Basically whatever value users put on being able to use a particular item outside Kitely. So I think the question is incapable of being answered with any particular amount or at least that no amount or percentage should be predetermined across...

Re: Your opinion needed: Maturity Ratings for avatar skins

Hi Serendipity, I understand your objection but there isn't much I can do about it. Your definition of mundane mature behavior (e.g. taking a shower in the nude inside your world) falls into the Adult category in several of our main target markets. It is completely irrelevant whether I agree with y...

We will add clarifications about what each of the maturity ratings mean.
Thanks. Do you understand my objection to the big gap between a very tightly limited Moderate and the current definition of Adult? I think it is too large a gap without enough nuance for many people.

Re: Weired behavior at setting parzel of region to mature

Hi Serendipity, There is no problem with people in bikinies French kissing in a Moderate world but having them have virtual sex in a skybox is not enough to keep the world Moderate and not Adult. If an underage user can cam-around to view the sex scene then the world exposed that user to age-inappr...

Re: Your opinion needed: Maturity Ratings for avatar skins

It sounds as if the real question is not "what do we think it should be?", or "what makes sense?", but rather "what is safe for the business?" Please explain to me what you can be sued for if a Moderate rated skin in Kitely marketplace shows a nipple. A world where nothing is allowed but what offen...

Re: Your opinion needed: Maturity Ratings for avatar skins

The Maturity Ratings are messed up. Adult is described as worlds with nudity or violence. Yet Moderate precludes even nudity or sexual activity behind closed doors. Even having furniture or clothes or animations that are rated Adult has been said to be forbidden and perhaps enforced by code in the f...

Re: Weired behavior at setting parzel of region to mature

The trouble in a nutshell is that what is defined as "Moderate" by Kitely seems to many of us and perhaps to majority of Kitely customers to be not "Moderate" but closer to "Puritantical". To many "Moderate" means you would expect to see anything "in the open" on a world that you couldn't see on the...
