Known Issues

  • EZ-Note Message Board may have issues rezzing notes on group owned land, when land owner is offline.

This is due to the changes Linden Lab made in the prevention of rezzing non deeded group items on group owned land while the land owner is offline. The board will work fine on single person owned land or setting ‘Always Allow Create Objects’ to active on group land parcel power privileges.
