The AviTron network reports an interruption in the Gloebit payment system with multiple networks.
“I’ve been emailing these guys for two weeks now,” said AviTron network owner Alex Pomposelli Hypergrid business. “No answer yet.”
According to Pomposelli, the problem is that the Gloebit DLL needs to be updated.
The DLL is a helper script that allows transactions in the world, e.g. Seller purchases or land payments.
“They are not responding at all,” he said. “No support at all.”
When the Gloebit system last had major outages that spring, several networks considered rolling out their own currency or using the Podex currency system. When the Gloebit service was restored, most people decided to stick to it. Gloebits is the most convenient multi-grid currency for OpenSim.
The company was launched five years ago by Christopher Colosi, who used to run the Second Life Marketplace and the Lindex Stock Exchange. If anyone could make an OpenSim payment system work, it should have been him.
“I am now considering returning to our own currency, Tron,” Pomposelli said. “Gloebits was a good solution for OpenSim, but it’s also pretty bad because I have over 500 members in my network now and I can not wait two to three weeks for support.”
There does not appear to be any way to make new posts on the Gloebit Facebook page, but there are a few new comments on this discussion threat from another issue in June, both of which refer to the AviTron network.
Website works, payments in the world can be problematic
I logged into my Gloebit account on the site and bought a few dollars worth of Gloebits – that transaction went well.
Then I teleported over to a mall on the DigiWorldz network, at login.digiworldz.com:8002:Serene Vineyard Island. I tried to buy a few items. The money was deducted from my account, but I did not receive my purchases.
I have contacted DigiWorldz owner Terry Ford to find out if others have the same problem but have not heard back yet.
A purchase error can be due to a number of things, not just an error in the payment system.
