New people often seem averse to reading the Knowlwdge Base, which answers at least 90% of their questions. Google answers most of the rest.

If you have someone who guides you trough the beginnings of SL in world, that helps a lot.
SL is overwhelming when you first visit.
So the OP asks a valid question IMHO.
That not everybody is willing or able to do so, and that some see trolls behind every newby post, that is likely to happen.

the guy just posted yesterday, not even 24 hours ago and some of you are complaining that he’s* a flyby?
C’mon, give him a chance.

* sorry for assuming a gender.

Don't color me surprised if we never hear of him again after such a "warm" welcome.

It’s a bit like the people who come in the LL forum and ask how to build a rocket ship in Blender.

Do some reading first, then when you have specific questions ask for help. Be considerate of people’s time.

By the way, how does one build a rocket ship in Blender? (Asking for a friend.)

There are several ways but the most popular method seems to be:
  1. Find rocket ship model on internet
  2. Open file in Blender
  3. Export file in dae format
  4. Upload to SL
Alternate step 1: Find rocketship model in the latest AAA game . . .

Then come to the forum claiming to have just built your first object, the Starship Enterprise, with a million tris, and wondering why you can't upload it properly.

Given that they wanted us to bring them answers on a silver platter over on discord, it's not particularly likely they were coming back to begin with.

I think the main issue is that a lot of people over the years that have joined SLU/VVO seem to use it soley as a resorce and not the community it is and that can lead to resentment.

I mean it has for me, there is a reason I don't really welcome new users. Whats the point of welcoming new people if you're never going to see them again?

That being said its good to hear they joined the slu discord.

Just work around this by making everything but the highest LOD a blob.
