The Marketplace, original stores and original products visibility
Yesterday I got a message from someone in SL to check https://feedback.secondlife.com/web-features/p/limited-quantities-not-showing-in-search because I was mentioned there. Last year in August I started a petition for a Marketplace fix because my store was burried under +600 Fapple 4 years old gacha items by gacha resellers. II initiated the petition because, following a survey, it became evident that many people were unaware of the option to check the box 'Do not see Limited Quantities and my numerous tickets got 0 attention. I stopped making and selling gacha 4 years ago, after illigaly copied full sets of my gachas were selling on the marketplace, copied with an unfixable restart sim glitch that persists to this day. That Marketplace Store sold more gachas than the actual stores he copied. Moreover, I often receive messages regarding listings that are scams, such as empty boxes or non-rare items labeled as rare, thinking I am the customer service for those items, which understandably dampens the experience. Do I want gachas gone? No, everyone is free to do as they like, and I think they should be as searchable as any other product. What I asked help for is, if people look for my store they would at least see an original product on the first page. Should the Search term 'Fapple' bring up (today) 198 reseller 4 year old Fapple items before the new items I make and my actual store? As the sole creator of those items, the one who makes the meshes and textures from scratch, pays for the uploads, pays for the software I use to make those items in (Photoshop and Maya), I wanted to at least see my store pop up for people who look for it. Did I have great sales in the MP this week because suddenly the Limited Quantities box was unchecked? Of course not, there is more wrong with our Marketplace than just that. I'm very lucky with the support of my loyal in-world customers, who I rely on for sales. I ask for your grace. I initiated this petition in 2023 not to cause harm or exclude anyone, I wanted help with my and many other original creators issue. The recent changes to the Marketplace likely have no correlation with my petition from nine months ago. It's unacceptable to slander my name online or send hate messages in-world. Let's maintain a respectful and constructive dialogue. ______________________________________________________________________________________________ @Sntax Linden I kindly request Linden Lab to consider giving creator store's 𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙜𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙡 𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙙𝙪𝙘𝙩𝙨 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙡𝙮 𝙨𝙚𝙖𝙧𝙘𝙝 𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙪𝙡𝙩𝙨 vs gacha resellers Additionally, 𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙘𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙞𝙢𝙥𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙩 𝙛𝙞𝙡𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙨 𝙖𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙩𝙤𝙥 would greatly benefit customers, ensuring they can easily find what they're looking for. Furthermore, it would be helpful to 𝙨𝙚𝙖𝙧𝙘𝙝 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙨𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙚𝙨/𝙘𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙩𝙤𝙧 𝙣𝙖𝙢𝙚𝙨 𝙖𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙩𝙤𝙥 𝙤𝙛 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙛𝙞𝙡𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙨 𝙞𝙣𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙖𝙙 𝙤𝙛 𝙞𝙣 𝙖 𝙙𝙞𝙛𝙛𝙚𝙧𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙩𝙖𝙗. And for all the gacha resellers, move the Limited Quantity/Demo checkbox to the top and get rid of 'do not see' Your consideration of us, the original creators, who invest significant time and resources into making Second Life the vibrant world it is today, would be greatly appreciated. ______________________________________________________________________________________________


Content Filter and Blacklisting Marketplace Stores
The Marketplace would be a much better experience if we could add filters/blacklists for content/tags we don't want to see, and/or blacklist specific individual stores to hide them from searches. When searching from a seemingly-normal keyword on Marketplace, due to a lack of filtering, sometimes you will suddenly be shown a lot of extreme content with little relevance to your actual search. One innocuous word (I think it was something like "mask" or similar) used to return pages of scat fetish content because there was a store by the name of that seemingly normal word. Another example is that bestiality content gets posted under the "furry" tag somewhat often. In my opinion, choosing to see Adult content does not necessarily mean we want to see any and all extreme content, especially when it fills up an unrelated search and makes it harder to find what I'm looking for. And to be honest, it makes the Marketplace look bad, and makes it harder for creators who have Marketplace stores if searching can sometimes be an unpleasant experience. It's not just about extreme fetish content, either. Unfortunately, there has also been a rise of Marketplace stores selling ripped mesh from 3rd party sites, or AI generated images. Currently we can't report or flagged the ripped mesh sellers as I believe the copyright holder has to flag it. So, at the very least, it would be nice if we could choose to blacklist these stores so our searches aren't full of blatantly stolen content. I suggest either, or both of the following to be implemented: A user-specific global blacklist setting, where we can set which tag(s) to exclude from our searches. The ability to blacklist or hide individual stores, either through blocking the account that the store belongs to, or otherwise.
