Meeting with Andy Jan 11, 2021

Here is an edited version of the meeting. No text has been changed, but the first part is only Andy’s remarks, and in the question and answer section we attempted to match q’s with a’s LOL. The full transcript follows the q&a section.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Hi All
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: I wont keep you long just a few topics then I’ll answer anything you guys want.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Okay guys 4pm so i will get started
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: First up to go the recent crashing.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Sadly its partly out of our control while we work on a few things to stop it.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: For a lot of 2020 we have been developing a new system which we hope to release soon which is the VZ Connection Client
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: This basically means that VZones will run on a private network that the outside world (none members) wont be able to see.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Which solves a lot of our problems right away.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: We are aiming for 1 – 2 months to get this released but we may do some testing with you guys next week depending how far we get.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: The warps are painful I know.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Not the level of service we want to offer at all.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: We pushed out a patch today which does not solve the original attack problem but it does hopefully stop the database problem that happens from it.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: So if the same style attack happens again rather than crash you’ll get the world is shutting down message right away.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: So its a no warning shutdown to protect the database.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: We have added extra logging to help pinpoint where we need to fix.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Which moves us onto the next issue.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: When this problem happens we could repair the database and no need to restore from backup.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: However due to the amount of data we have it would take too long with the world being offline.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: We are a world of hoarders
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: everyone one of us i think
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: So the big question is how can we get people to clear out junk they do not want or need.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Open to idea

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Higher pawn value could work but we need to be clearing stuff from inside the turfs only.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: For example of how bad it can be we had a member who had over 14,000 paint cans
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: One idea could be a turf lock in
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: so we lock you into the turf building for a weekend
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: with higher rated pawn machine
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: and let you clear out what you do not want
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Could be a side award for joining in to help clear out
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Yeah the hope would be you are pawning items you dont want or need.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Not asking you to pawn stuff you want!
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: The volume of new stuff is not such a problem
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: It’s the 47,000 copies of a bottle of cola that might not be needed

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: We are on 100% all this month already yes.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: No you do not need to get rid of anything.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Its only if you want to and only stuff you do not need or want.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: As I explained at the start hopefully the new patch today will stop the need for a warp if the same issue happens.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Again you do not have to do it.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Its only if you want to.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Okay so for now we wont decide on anything but if you can clear out junk you do not want then it will all help the world.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: We are working on a system where we can get you lists of all items in your turfs.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: So that will help you decide/see exactly what you have and where it is.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: 100% pawn will be all this month and next.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: None of this solves the crashing problem no.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: What it does mean is when the world restarts it’s quicker.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: The crashing is caused a person yes.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Yes we know who it is.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: We are working on fixing the software & the VZ Connection Client to put an end to it.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: The clearing junk is to help make restarts and scanning the database faster.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: No they cannot get personal info.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: The person is only causing crashing/problems IW.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: I cant discuss details about the person but yes they are known to the worlds.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: We aim to reply to tickets the same day.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: So moving on to the last part with some more happy updates.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: NH shopping area will be getting an update later this week.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: So you will see some construction work around that way this week.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Pets are in progress and the art is about 30% done now.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Surfside 2 buildings will be shutting down and making way for the new Kymer Beach Club
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: This will be a new party hot spot with space for hosting and radio shows.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: March 1st we will see some updates for hosts including a new reward area inside the PM for hosts only.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Pans will also be included in hosting rewards.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Yeah we have places that do not get used which is why 2 buildings near the beach are getting taken down and a new club that will be used.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: SC party store will be opening.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: WorldsAway creators building is being updated so you can rent 1,3 & 10 plan blank turfs
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Which you can then use to build stuff which becomes public after 30 days.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Rent is paid on it until the day it’s opened for all to access.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Turfs can be joined together via a small fee. So for example if you wanted to build your own world you could rent multiple 10 plan turfs.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: We still have nearly 1400 turfs where rent has not been paid since 2018. So this is still slow and in progress.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: So for now that is everything. If you have any questions let me know & thank you for coming.

Nodnarb: I’d like to see SC see more visitors, would it be possible to add a teleporter pad outside of TST (or in the lobby) just like the pads in Variations?
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: If you put it on vzones.com/ideas/ will see if we can fit in SC to the TST teleporter.

Morning Glory: We NEED BLANK 10 room turfs to rent for ourselves
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: 10 room turfs will return once we get all turfs updated on the rents or closed off if members dont want them.

DustyBritches: why can’t i access London and other sites
DustyBritches: via the boat?
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: We are updating the boat & airport connections this week….should be done by Friday. The airport in SC will allow you to travel any location you have a ticket.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: The boat will allow you to travel to special places only with a valid ticket.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Travel Tickets are needed mainly for fun, story line and role play as part of the quests. This is being updated this week.

LowRider: one big issue i would like to see solved is… take out the 3 min poofing and put it back like it used to be with almost imediately poofing so the person can get back in world faster to continue to play games or host.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: 3 min poofing can be done yea few people asked. If you post that on the ideas site I will get it done this week hopefully.

Pammie: can a vip turf be traded in for a different one?
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: VIP turf once set cant be changed currently no sorry.

LowRider: on the ideas site i got this message…
LowRider: Your membership requires approval before you are able to view this content.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Membership approval sounds like you do not have VIP setup right on your account. Please make a ticket so we can take a look.

Britney: Andy when can Alt Earn Token
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Alts earning tokens wont be a thing as it will just destory the value of the token like pre 2014.

Nodnarb: Can we redeem a AW Gold House ticket or whats the timeline on that?
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: AW Homes we will see more once all the turf have been cleared or rents paid. Remember on the site you can request a turf list.
Nodnarb: I dont own a AW 100-gold house – but maybe the ticket should be removed for sale until we can redeem it?
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: I will get it removed yes. Thank you.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Shop owners I will be in touch with next week for something special yes.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: or ESP me and I will sort with each shop owner direct

Nodnarb: Will the Shop Owners be gaining access to an exclusive item for their shops sometime soon?
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: They didnt no. When they decide if you contact me we can sort it.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: They need to decide on the items.

Carly: Can members hold events again?
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Yes member events can be hosted again. We will release details soon.

LowRider: andy, could you take a look at my support tickets i recently sent… im trying to help someone get her account ip reset so she can get back in vzones. thank you
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Support tickets due today will be done today yes.

Tuli: Andy what if we are a shop owner whose shops are not on the list like the others?
Pammie: i hope so, cuss your day and my day is different and it has all my stuff i moved to empty a turf
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: You can fill in the shop form via the site to get added to the list.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: https://www.vzones.com/shop-registration/

Jippo: since we moved to this 4.7b version I noticed a very important to store owners item is missing suddenly?The Precision Turf Mover located under tool bar does now NOT have the “use last” option! I used that daily to move multiple items at once.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Use last option in 4.7b thanks we will look into it.

Nodnarb: So for clearing out stuff… is the game plan to ask people to use the 100% pawn for now?
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: For now yes please use 100% pawn.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: We will work on getting reports to see what is where then get in touch with ideas.

Carly: do all sc members get their items back they had in turfs?
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: SC turfs will come once we sort the massive back log of turfs we still have. This is being worked on daily and has been for months.

Tuli: i dont want to lose the ping in esp
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: ESP ping is on the list to sort.

Devan: i would like a 100% pawn in the private elevator\
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: 100% pawn in the elevator yeah okay

Carly: i am trying hard to pawn but please stop the warps and all pawn items return to turfs ,that is extreme frustrating to do over and over again
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Hopefully warp wont be needed after the fix today.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Sadly we need to wait and see when the person next decides to attack us.

K1TT1: can you make sure there is a 100% pawn in each turf building
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Pawn in turfs builings yes will do.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Okay guys I will be on ESP if you need anything.

Nodnarb: Hey J
wolfsoul: good incentive
Nodnarb: Not sure how a gold pawn would work though
Dia: still waiting on the quest reward
PetMePlease: Ur all missing the point here.. So we pawn our old items.. we get tokens.. What do we do with tokens and vouchers and Gold? We buy more crap
PorkChop: thats a sell crap get crap kinda pointless
Nodnarb: GOld items are sold for tokens, no way to identify what was paid with gold, tokens, or vouchers
Carly: I have been pawning a heck of a lot of things this weekend and it all came back with the warps wasted time and very upsetting
PetMePlease: How about a box full of stuff gets 1G
Pammie: yes, but i will buy less items

Tuli: yep
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Yeah the hope would be you are pawning items you dont want or need.
wolfsoul: clothes and things
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: Not asking you to pawn stuff you want!
PetMePlease: the only why to make this place have less stuff is to make it more expensive to buy
Pammie: no way
wolfsoul: nooo lol
Tuli: shhh
PetMePlease: I dont like it bu tits true
Pammie: not without a raise on sitting tokens
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: The volume of new stuff is not such a problem

DustyBritches: ok, what is what?
PetMePlease: Can U make them ALL 100% it will be easier

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: We are on 100% all this month already yes.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: No you do not need to get rid of anything.
Pammie: it took us years to collect it all
Tuli: and if you warp it all comes back to us

DustyBritches: what about my collected foor stuf, dishes etc?
PetMePlease: LOL good point but dont say warp lol
DustyBritches: food
Susie: maybe the 1tk items have us put in a folder and make it worth a bit more to turn in,some 1t items are like lil feet or dp that ppl put in turf to sit
Carly: please keep the 100% pawn up will clear a lot but stop the warps please!!
Nodnarb: He’s not suggesting to sell stuff you want – just the junk you no longer need
Morning Glory: I pawned everything I dont NEED when I lost all my T’s
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: As I explained at the start hopefully the new patch today will stop the need for a warp if the same issue happens.
Pammie: like someone else pointed out, we have stuff we dont want to get rid of but there worth little to pawn
Morning Glory: I have nothing left to pawn
Susie: but they do not pawn since ony 1tk
PetMePlease: like old prizes U dont use..

The Incredible Cpt.Dialtone: like a recycler of the week award
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: None of this solves the crashing problem no.
Pammie: thats no good a lot of folks have little
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: What it does mean is when the world restarts it’s quicker.
PetMePlease: Yes and it was Poo’s Idea Dont forget LOL
DustyBritches: is that by a hacker?
Rocko: Right…. So those who are newbies or didn’t get turfs back aren’t included
The Incredible Cpt.Dialtone: sometimes life isn’t fair

Nodnarb:
Nodnarb:
The Incredible Cpt.Dialtone: lol
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: We are working on fixing the software & the VZ Connection Client to put an end to it.
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: The clearing junk is to help make restarts and scanning the database faster.
wolfsoul: Are they able to get personal info ?
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: No they cannot get personal info.
wolfsoul: ok good ty
PetMePlease: but in the mean time, He’d like to lighten the load in here with stuff we dont need or use
Tuli: if they do they will laugh at mine im sure

Pammie: when do vip get the rent set back up and will we get any rents back ?
Dia: open a ticket

Dia: did the questers get the final prize
Britney: andy they need to bring Back for Alts to ern token
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: If you put it on vzones.com/ideas/ will see if we can fit in SC to the TST teleporter.
Dia: i did put in an idea regarding an additional SC teleporter in NH somewhere
Pammie: can it not be moved at least closer to the 100 % pawn?
LowRider: one big issue i would like to see solved is… take out the 3 min poofing and put it back like it used to be with almost imediately poofing so the person can get back in world faster to continue to play games or host.
DustyBritches: why can’t i access London and other sites
Acolyte Cosmic Andy: 10 room turfs will return once we get all turfs updated on the rents or closed off if members dont want them.

Acolyte Cosmic Andy: We are updating the boat & airport connections this week….should be done by Friday. The airport in SC will allow you to travel any location you have a ticket.
Pammie: less then
