Saw a hub on Zindra (at BikerParties Nude Beach - Zindra) posted in group notices; in the hub list, it shows as having no continent. Did the application just slip through the net, or is GTFO going to expand onto the last mainland continent? Interested hub owners (based on Zindra) would like to know...
I've been thinking about the issue of hubs disappearing or going offline when their owners sell up, abandon the land, or return the land to their landlord. A suggestion: what if hub owners were required to rezz an object with a script on their land - a script whose only job would be to say "I'm here!" to a website (this one?) at regular intervals? (Every day or two, if we're just checking that the hub hasn't been sold off; every few minutes, if we're also checking that the sim's online - and assuming the host can handle the traffic.) The script could also check if the parcel has changed ownership since the last time the script was triggered (and, of course, that the object is still on the same parcel). This should be fairly simple to implement in SL, various RP groups and others use something similar. At the website end, the server script only needs to update a database table that can be reported on the website. A list of 'hubs that haven't reported in' for (say) 24 hours should be enough to allow volunteers to check on the status of hubs and file the appropriate removal requests.
