The information in this post from DGP4SL Blog is extremely helpful and I really, really wish I’d known some of this before, as I’ve been somewhat (okay, alotwhat) cavalier about my Magic Boxes.
Especially helpful: turns out its a good idea to have duplicates, in case your “main store” sim is offline.
I’d never known how to get the Marketplace to update their list of servers: you have to go a bit “old skool” at the SL Exchange site. So THAT’s why it’s still live…
Thatâ€™s all well and good but how does the Marketplace know which Magic Boxes you have? The answer to that question is a bit more complicated. Since the Magic Box was originally created for the old XStreet SL (and before that it was called â€œSL Exchangeâ€) web site, you actually have to use the old XStreet SL site in order to â€œteachâ€ the Marketplace about all of your Magic Boxes.
