Why no VICE? PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 13 April 2012 17:45

As this question has come up repeatedly, I wanted to be able to fully answer this question, and have said answer posted for everyone's convenience.

While VICE is popular in some circles, unfortunately VICE is an abandoned platform, as stated by the developer. It has not been updated whatsoever since 2009. With the core VICE scripts being no-modify and the great improvements to LSL that Linden Lab has developed in the last several years, adding VICE to my systems would cause them to use at least double the resources they do currently - meaning they would cause lag. There are also many outstanding bugs and limitations to VICE that obviously will not be addressed due to the abandoned status of the system.

I care a great deal about the script functionality and resource use of my products, which is why at this time I cannot in good conscience adopt VICE. Should it again become an active project, I would certainly give it another look.

Product Replacement, Transfers, and Refunds PDF Print E-mail

The Omega Concern™ retains records of customer purchases and can provide replacements to the original purchaser on record in the event of inventory issues, accidental deletion or other circumstance.  We do recommend keeping the original box in which products are delivered, so that you may simply open and re-copy the contents to inventory, saving yourself much time and grief.  Most items purchased in Second Life® since 2010 July can be re-delivered to you via the service kiosk located in our main store in Second Life.

Sales are considered to be between The Omega Concern and the avatar to whom the product was originally delivered. We cannot send copies of purchases to an alternate avatar (i.e. "alt") due to the impossibility of verifying that these two avatars belong to and will remain under the control of  the same person, and the inevitability of abuse by unscrupulous individuals in the absence of such a policy.

We are unable to refund non-transferable items, but may at our discretion extend in-store credit on a case-by-case basis.

 
Marketing and Promotions PDF Print E-mail

From time to time, from our records of purchasers, we will select those that appear likely to be interested in something that we've produced since the time of that purchase, and contact them via note card delivery.  We find advertising that is less than optimally focused to be discourteous and unsophisticated at best, which is why we don’t care to blanket every customer who’s ever bought anything.

We do not send promotional materials often, and only when we are either having a sale (Which since 2007 has been an annual event) or upon release of a new product, and only then to people who have purchased something in the past that may hint at their interest in the new release.  We would like to restrict these send-outs to once every six weeks at their most frequent.

We are also aware of the fact that some persons are very sensitive about being contacted for marketing purposes whatsoever.

If you have received something from The Omega Concern and do not wish to receive any further materials in the future, just send an IM to April Heaney politely stating such and you will be removed from all future promotions.
