What’s next

Sooo, to paraphrase from our little plan, here’s what’s going to happen next:

  • Make our avmans (This was to make more than the one we started out with). Done.
  • Message the GPs with the plan (See, they kept some secrets ๐Ÿ™‚ )
  • Clear the cluster (This happens tomorrow morning)
  • Rebuild the legacy tables (This is scripted, but deploying resources might take a while)
  • Increase max pending invitations to 50 or 100
  • Reinvite all the GPs – Later this week for sure
  • Message them to re-register
  • Look for any new troubles

If that all goes great, then:

  • Add a link for “invite me!” to the http://www.there.com MOTD section (just under ‘registrations are currently by invitation only’)
  • Let people self-invite up to the max pending invitations limit
  • Periodically clear the whitelist to let in the next batch of self-invites
  • Watch the avman distribution for any issues

(Right now I have high hopes we’ll be doing this by next week.)

If that all works…(much more likely thanks to the GPs)

  • Turn off the white list and let people register as they see fit, as long as they are 18 or over
  • Get 3D world on line for them
  • Get nice installer downloads set up for them
  • Start charging money (might happen sooner)

One more thing. There is special logic in the Invite system that detects if you’re abusing it by inviting yourself over and over that will send your avatar directly to the AvieDisposal (we wanted to call it the InAvatarEraser, but we would have gotten in trouble with the garbage disposal people).

    I saw there.com was back up so I got excited and tried to log in, then immediately regretted it. Sorry…50 lashes with a wet noodle for me

    I’m so excited for what tomorrow will bring, hopefully all good news! I feel like we are getting close! Yay!

  6. #6 by justagreatguy on 2011.08.03 - 4:32 pm

    Mr. Wilson, Will you please help me fix my There account or get some one that will at least check into it? I will do what ever it takes, I am asking from the bottom of my heart (Will you PLEASE help me?) I will be happy with a email, phone number, fax number to send a copy of my state ID, a link or anything that will help me. I played there for a long time and I even paid for the membership (years ago). I never had a problem with others and I try real hard to live up to my There name. I even had a club called Buggy Bashers, I gave it away when I stopped playing. Please Help Me.

I spent two weeks there a few years back at Napili Point with the wife and kids. wow….It was great. hope you didn’t get back sooner than expected with all these folks pestering you.

    Just a quick question, what does is mean when we’re registering and it says: “Double check. Is this your e-mail?”

    I know there are a lot of updates on the way which may be related, but I can not access the there.com website (using both http://www.there.com and there.com). May not to be news to you, but I didn’t see it mentioned anywhere yet (…going back to see if i missed a post).

    • #26 by XNecroscopeX on 2011.08.03 - 10:59 am

      That’s a problem over on your end. I can access the website.

      • #27 by XNecroscopeX on 2011.08.03 - 10:59 am

        Actually, I can’t. They are updating it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • #28 by justagreatguy on 2011.08.03 - 11:15 am

      I’m sure the website was taken down so the updates can be added and fixes to the main page.

    • #29 by SnyperFla on 2011.08.03 - 12:33 pm

      neither can I. They probably know. He would have commented on your post, when he approved it, if it were not a known issue.

    • #30 by kazenoai on 2011.08.03 - 1:00 pm

      I can’t access it either. Maybe that’s part of the ‘clear the cluster’ situation

      • #31 by kazenoai on 2011.08.03 - 4:43 pm

        well, it’s working now.

      Its up again

    • #33 by Tre_Ghost on 2011.08.03 - 2:27 pm

      it came with the “clearing the cluster this morning” part, all stuff on the server was removed to be put back so the site had to be removed too I think

  26. #34 by Charlene Durbin on 2011.08.03 - 10:30 am

    Oh my…we are getting sooooo close. Gonna be so nice to be back in There doing my favorite thing…just standing around doing nothing…rofl I enjoy just hanging out and letting people come up and talk to me or ask to borrow things. Oh, and buggy bashing…yyyeeeaahhh…gonna be awesome…he he he

  27. #35 by Tre_Ghost on 2011.08.03 - 9:58 am

    I wanna point out MW that using google I searched for “images that say there.com” to get a pic for a profile on this other site, and the very top of the results under sponsored links this comes up at the top of the link it says there.com, the info says “Experience a world where you make all the rules. Meet new people for free! imvu is rated(5 stars) 980 reviews”. then the link to imvu.com They are advertising using “there.com” to give them search hits. I may be wrong but isn’t that kind of infringement of some sort?

    • #36 by XNecroscopeX on 2011.08.03 - 11:03 am

      This is what he’s talking about.

    • #37 by SnyperFla on 2011.08.03 - 12:39 pm

      I just checked also. Did a search on “There.com”, using google (not google images), and the first listing was:

    Will you guys be accepting Paypal payments? Since I don’t own any credit cards an yes I’m an Adult, I hope you add this option

    • #44 by Michael Wilson on 2011.08.03 - 10:24 am

      Initially, we’ll be accepting only PayPal (which means you can use Credit Cards, without a PayPal account).

      • #45 by Joel on 2011.08.03 - 12:01 pm

        Fantastic! Surely this should save you money in regards to processing fees and the security required with holding card information yourself.. You’ve really thought out everything this time haven’t you, Mike hah!

      • #46 by deadlycooler on 2011.08.03 - 1:04 pm

        Oh ok, That’s great to hear I’m ready to pay as soon as the world opens!

    • #47 by Tre_Ghost on 2011.08.03 - 2:25 pm

      I just got very confused, MW you said only accepting paypal then said we can use credit cards without a paypal account. Cause all I have is a visa as far as a payment method.

    Wow, this is moving faster than I originally thought! This is GREAT, GREAT news! I remember at one point a couple of years ago in the first There wishing I could go back to the beginning and rediscovering There and all the innocence and wonder of discovering a new world… I can’t wait for that moment when There 2 opens up … I am sure I will feel that same excitement, if not more, cause now I know what’s on the other side! Thanks again for the wonderful updates on your progress! Thank you to the GP’s for their help, too!

  38. #56 by Tre_Ghost on 2011.08.03 - 8:28 am

    Yeah I’m wondering the same as kattwoman, can we buy therebucks from thereIM and shop or is that in world only? Also is it OK to pay for a second avatar and put a few items on it, and allow new people I bring to try there for 2-3 hours for free to convince them it’s worth the money to play? They are all coming from free worlds and currently we’re talking about 45 people. And counting ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just keep following the yellow brick road, There is at the end where the the giant red arrow is pointing to the boxes “Enter avatar name” & “Enter password”. Once at the end of the yellow brick road just sit down and talk with your fellow Thereian friends until grand re-opening day!!. This update is one of the better ones, well done GPs your work has been well worth it and we all say thankyou from all our Thereian hearts.

  45. #63 by Daffysgirl on 2011.08.03 - 7:55 am

    Mr Wilson, or to anyone reading this….

    When we are finally able to invite ourselves and we have forgotten our old password, will the system already remember us? Is there going to be a help section to be able to talk to someone if we can’t get ahold of our old avvatars? THanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  50. #68 by IndyLou on 2011.08.03 - 7:12 am

    Dear Mr. Wilson,
    When I go to http://www.there.com, none of the links at the bottom of the page appear to be working except the one for the Terms of Service. My concern is that in the TOS, it still indicates that minors are welcome. This can be misleading now that There.com will be 18+. Will the TOS (and other links) be updated soon? Thank you for addressing this concern.

    When it’s time for there to open, I don’t think I will be able to log in due to forgot password and email so I was wondering if some one will be nice enough to post it here that There is open when it is open so I can try to get logged in. I just won’t know if my password is not working or if there is still closed to everyone. Even if I can’t get in BIG THANKS to every one that worked on There!!

  71. #98 by Dusky Rose on 2011.08.03 - 3:37 am

    Zippity Do Dah. I’ve spent a lot of time this week trying to explain to my SL friends why my There.com “family” is excited about going back. I’m hoping they will get hooked on it before the monthly fee kicks in. And I’m hoping the spades tables are working smoothly before Petal gets back from the U.K. Skip, skip, clap, clap, ‘tu, ‘chickendance.

    • #99 by xSnoopy on 2011.08.03 - 5:12 am

      Dusky,
      Your frustration is understandable. For years I have been trying to explain just what Tererians experience and so far I have not had a whole lot of success.
      Best thing to do is get them to at least give it a try. Escort them around so they get a feel for ALL the activities that are available in There.
      Let them drive a buggy, give them a paintball gun, let them ride a board or hoverboat. Show them your house if you have one.
      Personally I don’t understand what all the fascination with SL is. A little taste of There should do it.
      See you in There,
      GP, xSnoopy

    • #100 by Mark B. (Cowbellwalken) on 2011.08.03 - 7:45 am

      Sometimes you just gotta let your friends make their own mistakes before they learn. ๐Ÿ™‚ More room for us! I’d rather be a There refugee than a SL citizen; just my personal opinion. I tried out both and There has a charm that you just can’t match…

    I’ve been talking about There re-opening so much that my mom has decided she’s going to actually try it when it opens. I might have accidentally slipped through a portal into a parallel universe.

    Whoops, sorry forgot to add, what verification are you planning to have in place to ensure that U18’s can’t register? Because I believe in the USA you have prepaid Visa Debit’s that you can just pick up from a shop? So surely using a credit/debit card wouldn’t be sufficient to prove a user’s age.

    Thanks again.

    • #112 by Tre_Ghost on 2011.08.03 - 8:23 am

      Well if not then half of us won’t get in. Of course it’s sufficient to prove cause you have to be 18 to get one, and you have to give your ID # and social security # to activate the prepaid debit cards.

      • #113 by Joel on 2011.08.03 - 11:59 am

        Oh cool, I wasn’t aware of this as I’m from the UK and we don’t have the prepaid cards, only the ones which banks provide us with.. (Although I believe U18’s can get prepaid VISA’s/Mastercards over here through Virgin).

  81. #114 by Joel on 2011.08.03 - 1:40 am

    Fantastic news, I think it’s great that things are actually beginning to come together and with the large amount of interest based on the comments, There should hopefully be a viable business.

    I was wondering in regards to platforms, are there any plans to make a Mac version? Or is the only current plan for Windows?

    Thanks Mike.

    Can anyone answer this? I always used to sign in using my EMAIL address and password. I remember both, but the email address is no longer in use. Will I still be able to sign in? Also, Will I be able to switch my email address to my current one, so I can receive There Mail? “Rockinsurfer_boy”

    Great to hear!!! The big question is if you have a rough idea when the 3D world will open. This is one question everybody would like an answer to!!!

  86. #119 by SnyperFla on 2011.08.03 - 12:25 am

    MW: What exactly is an avman? I imagine it has something to do with the avatars, but not sure exactly what it is. thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    • #120 by Diatribe on 2011.08.03 - 8:21 am

      I’m pretty sure it’s like the “There_test_#” avatars

    • #121 by Brandyn Rlp There on 2011.08.03 - 8:42 am

      An Avman is a Server for Avatar accounts like objects, the avatar its self, ect. I’m pretty sure thats what it is and does. But don’t hold me to that.

  87. #122 by jakejackson on 2011.08.03 - 12:16 am

    Wow, great news! Now where did I park my buggy, over here, no, where is my blasted compass, maybe over THERE?

    • #133 by ForTehLulz on 2011.08.03 - 12:47 am

      Security question.
      If you have forgot that then; tough ๐Ÿ™‚

      • #134 by justagreatguy on 2011.08.03 - 6:41 am

        You can’t get the security question unless you know the email address and I changed my email when I changed my password buts its been so long ago I forgot what email I changed mine to. I hope I can figure it out.

      • #135 by Falun on 2011.08.03 - 6:55 am

        I dont remember any of that well looks like i lost that avi

    • #136 by RockinWolfman on 2011.08.03 - 8:10 am

    • #138 by Ant1977 on 2011.08.03 - 12:19 pm

      Q. What if Iโ€™ve forgotten my password?
      A. You will be able to use the same โ€œForgotten Passwordโ€ method you used with There: You fill out a form, and we email you the URL to change your forgotten password.

      Q. What if my email address was bogus isnโ€™t accessible any more?
      A. Then you can use the secret question and answer to reset your password.

      Q. What if my email address doesnโ€™t work, and I didnโ€™t set a secret question and answer.
      A. Then itโ€™s going to be very hard for us to help you, since itโ€™s going to be hard for you to give us information which someone else acquainted with you could provide. It may be possible to help you, but weโ€™ll charge you a significant fee for the time to do the research, and itโ€™s not clear weโ€™ll be able to help you.

      Q. Canโ€™t you just send me my password?
      A. No. We didnโ€™t store passwords. We did a one-way encryption on them and stored them.

      Q. What if Iโ€™ve forgotten my avatar name?
      A. You can sign in with your email address.

      Q. In the new system will you require email address verification?
      A. YES. Ending up with a system full of bogus o or profane or email-addresses-describing-Mr-Wilsonโ€™s-family is not in the plan here.

      /via There โ€œ2โ€ณ Q and A << I am so There

    • #143 by Kattwomann on 2011.08.03 - 4:36 am

      Chrome was working perfectly for me aside from the groups page, oddly enough. Of course I was not trying it from in world, but I think it always brought up IE when you were in world anyway…didn’t it? I do hope we get to use chrome for everything, I like it SO much better!
