Hi everyone.

The reason for this is Thread is: 15 - 20% of concurrent users are Alts & Bots.
I have nothing against Alt accounts as as long as they are used legitimate.

However my proposal is to limit parallel logins of 1 real user to max 3.

It is my dedication to fight against the high misuse of Alts and Bots, as they:

1 Degrade the experience.
2 Fake activity and fake traffic points.
3 Are a base for fraude and misuse.
4 Clutter logins and overall performance of the Grid and certainly the region they are in.
5 Steal traffic.

I am going to publish high traffic regions here where traffic counters are faked to get them high in Search.

Please join me here if you are have the same opinion and know regions too who do.
You can publish here. The intention of this thread is therefore not discussions ;)
Me being banned btw serves a higher purpose.

Well, my dear Linden Lab, this is a good list to start for you ;)
If we few residens can pull this up within a few hours... certainly you can ;)

Get rid of the Bots... YES WE CAN !!

You may not want discussion, but by putting a buzz word like Black List in the title, I think you are going to get it.

Just curious. Where did you get your 15-20% figure?

And with that statement, your argument is scuppered :) But as you are making a list of regions, please add Seymour. There's a box of bots high in the sky there that are obviously only there to increase the traffic number.

Ceka. If you make it a party of 20, I'll join you in Seymour, and we'll spend the whole day there :D

To identify a potential misusing region is easy.

It's fun too because you are exploring at the same time :)

Each avatar has 4500 traffic points to give every 24 hours distributed over the place they stayed > 5 minutes.

Double click on the name of the region at the top of your viewer.
In that window look at the Tab General.

If it is > 20000 open the minimap.
You should be able to find at least a bunch of active avies in that way.

If they are grouped together at a dance, that's ok.
However for reaching 20000 traffic points it's obvious you should be having dancing traffic coming and going. At least 10 concurrent avies or so at that dance.
But if you see traffic points at 60000 and only 10 aveis, that doesn't match (for example).

However they could be camping somewhere too in that region.
Check the camper's profile. If you see the same kind of patterns in the accounts name and profile joining the same group of that region, not much in the profile they are likely bots.

Check if you see clustered arrows pointing up or down on the minimap.
Ok, there could be something in the air. Try to find it; it's fun too :)

If you cannot find it and there is no TP to it, it is likely something very high in the sky.
Try to get there ( use a flying booster ). It can be even at 5000 meters high or so.
You may find static avies in a box or something or in a fake store.

When you suspect a bot, check the profile as mentioned before.

Do not IM te owner of the region, because you will likely be banned.
File a report to LL.

Have fun !

i'm increasingly of the opinion that everyone in sl should pay a membership fee..alts too (although I think a discounted fee for alts would be reasonable)

everyone uses sl...everyone should pay... simple.

Wow... you sure will show those bot running land owners. They will be majorly pi$$ed when you bring 40 avatars in and help them inflate thier traffic even more.

IBTL!

You do realize that we're bored and this thread is completely inappropriate for Resident -ANSWERS-. *tilts her head* Plus, saying "Just list sims, no discussions," is like waving a red flag in front of a very angry bull, right?

We're GOING to thread jack it. Deal or ask the mods to remove this flame bait.

Why would anyone trust you when you come out with such rubbish as, "Each avatar has 4500 traffic points to give every 24 hours distributed over the place they stayed > 5 minutes."?

Then don't publish here i would say.
And the 4500 thingy? Yep that is how sl traffic works for a major part based on 24 hour count of a concurrent user. Anyway, then don't come here i would say lol.
