This allows you to create your own tip jar, and allow:

  1. Yourself to be listed as creator, promoting your profile
  2. Share the tips with your staff automatically
  3. Secure the tip jar and make sure only you or your staff can use it.
  4. Shows total donations, biggest donations and last tipper.
  5. Shows the last tippers’ profile pic automatically, boosting tipping activity!


How to use

  1. Simply download the zip file and open the notepad.
  2. Start up your Second Life or Opensim viewer, build and object or use an item that you want to have as your physical tipjar.
  3. Create a new script within the item or object
  4. Create a new notecard withing the item or object with the exact name: SocialJar.Config
  5. Copy-paste the code into the script
  6. Copy-paste and adjust the notecard settings if necessary (usually not the case!).
  7. Adjust settings by touching it (sharing tips or not, secure login or not etc..)
  8. Reset script
  9. Voilá!

Marketplace description example

To promote the tip jar, we use the following description on the SL Marketplace:

The tip jars have the following functionalities:

*Automatically changes pic to the last tipper (great to increase tips and donations!)

*Logging in security; if you want to make sure only certain people can use the tip jar! (owner, group or public)

*Displays total tips, last tipper and biggest tipper! (great to increase competition among tippers!)

*Local and IM messages; boosts awareness of tipping possibilities and seduces tippers to tip more and more often!

Getting started:

1. Rezz

When rezzing, first accept the debit permission, or else the tipjar won’t work!

Touch to start the menu and work your way through the settings:

(If the tip jar does nothing, right click it, right click the ”SocialJar Script” and reset the script, you should see the debit permission pop up again!

2. Settings

-Acces: set acces to the persons who can log in and receive tips. It can be set to: owner only, group members only and public acces.

-Percentage: set the percentage of the tips your willing to share with the currently logged-in user!

– IM / Local chat or both: set this to the way you’d like the tip jar to mention the tipper in local and im chat.

3. Place it and receive your tips!
