Good news to start the workday (at least in this timezone): we know many Residents have found it difficult to login and vote, comment, and otherwise interact on our Issue Tracker, aka Public JIRA (sometimes shortened to “PJIRA”). This was in large part due to a bug titled WEB-47 — check that link for more info.
Trivia: Googling for “jira” shows our Issue Tracker as the #6 result!
In a sea of synchronicity, I was reading a related article on New World Notes about lack of votes for issues, and then, I just learned from Rob Linden, that through his enduring work and getting help from Cascadeo (who hosts PJIRA for us) and Atlassian (inventors of JIRA), that the bug is now fixed.
So, please login directly to an issue you care about and vote for it — and even add a comment with further info to help us make progress. You can vote for as many as are important to you, just look on the left side for options. Confused by all the issues? Don’t worry, use some filters (shown on the right side of the front page), such as “All unresolved bugs by # of votes“. Or related to the launch of our new First Look WindLight viewer, see “WindLight issues, sorted by votes“.
In case of further bugs, you can, of course, report them directly on the Issue Tracker. Refer to our instructions. They may seem heady at first glance, but through familarity and use of this tool, you’ll become more confident, and be helping us — both Lindens and your fellow Residents — advance Second Life. Solid repros so we can recreate the problems in order to effectively fix them, are of course superbly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for showing us what’s important to you!
