Time to get my noob on....

Hi, my name is Porky. I live in England. I joined SL in Summer 2004 and since then have spent my time mainly building content to sell, as well as completing lots of custom work during the boom/business years. 

In the small amount of spare SL time I allow myself I am currently on a mission to explore as much of SL that is left as possible before it all goes away.

So, 

Where are you from?

When did you join SL originally?

What have you mainly spent your time doing in SL in the past?

How are you planning to spend your time in SL in 2013?

 

p.s. if you think these questions are too personal then feel free to answer just some or none at all :matte-motes-big-grin:

 

ETA: by the way, this isn't a research survey or anything....this is Porky, stuck on a train bored out of his tiny little mind.

Paris. You know, French Cancan, Moulin Rouge, champagne and all that cliché stuff... 

When did you join SL originally?
Must have been in 2006, under another account, but not too sure...

What have you mainly spent your time doing in SL in the past? 
Bleeped as everyone did at the beginning, got tired of pixel bumping after one day or so, then started SHOPPING!!! 

How are you planning to spend your time in SL in 2013?
Delete my house at least 50 times to rebuild it and purchase more furniture than my prim count will ever allow me. 

 

p.s. if you think these questions are too personal then feel free to answer just some or none at all :matte-motes-big-grin:

I answered because I hate the idea of a bored Porky stuck in a train

I'm from a state of a deep trance. =^-^=

I joined SL in early 2007, ragequit, and came back in late 2007. (^_^)

I've done many things but I seem to always gravitate back to hanging out at NCI and helping people. (^_^)

Plan?  I have no plan.  What does each day bring? (^_^)

What have you mainly spent your time doing in SL in the past?

I climbed into a roller coaster relationship and rode it for 2.5 years while learning to build and script, eventually designing everything on our little island in the Maldives. Most of my creations are from this time. When the coaster hit bottom, I incinerated the original Madelaine and left SL. Five weeks later (Brenda Connolly bet I would return within three, so I won) the current Madelaine was born. Since then I've primarily danced with friends. My in-world time is the now lowest it's been since joining.

How are you planning to spend your time in SL in 2013?

Like Immy, I don't plan (RL or SL). I go where each day takes me.

Where are you from? 

I'm from Croatia, small country in the shape of banana, if you locate Itally on the world map, go north across Adriatic sea and there it is. We have little more than 4 milllion people and 1244 islands, have one in the shape of a heart lol. And we are known as great tourist location. 

When did you join SL originally?

It was in the spring of 2010. I have no idea how I found it but I remember I was thinking maybe it will be different from all the games I was playing so far. And it is!

What have you mainly spent your time doing in SL in the past?

Mainly trying stuff, like everything I found interesting. I tried to do different sl jobs, relationships and met people from around the world. I love SL because of its diversity, for example I don't have money to go visit India for a few months so having a friend from there will help me to get to know the country and culture more than any school or book. It also helped me to make my English better;) 

How are you planning to spend your time in SL in 2013?

I plan to work more on my current business - having a photo studio, also improve my photo editing skills. Learn more about landscaping and making my in-world location nice with as least lag as possible. I plan to learn how to make awesome poses (which is funny because I am allready working for a shop that sells them so I just need to make some). Then I need to learn mesh so I can make pose props and most important of all, I need to learn how to properly balance my RL/SL time. 

 Great thread, I can't wait to see more answers!

Hello Porky!

I am from Sydney, been in SL for 3 years and my main activity is photography, mainly fashion photography, hopefully when I do get a bit more time for SL I will pursue this hobby more in depth, and hope you are having a great time too!

I'm from California, a country on the west coast of North America.

I started SL in September 2008.

I came here for the express purpose of misbehaving. That was going very well for me and at first it seemed I had a bright future in misbehavior. Alas, it wasn't long before I fell in with good companions and things changed. Mostly I socialize and explore. I've built a few things just for myself.

I don't really plan SL. I will continue to learn new things and maybe even acquire some skills. As soon as I run out of things I haven't done or learned and stop meeting interesting people I'll probably leave.

I love Porky's threads!  So interesting how international this forum is!

 

I come from a place symbolized by one star. 

 

Joined Nov 2007 but would have come years before when I first heard about SL if it had been for Mac at the time. I just knew I would love it before I ever joined.

 

I just build compulsively, all the time.  And I do customer service a lot. And check forums.  I hope to continue until it is no longer possible.

Still on that train?

 

I'm from sunny Queensland, Australia.

I tried to join before my current avs rezday in October 2008, but my crappy laptop before that date wasn't up to the rigors of SL.

When I started I just blundered about like all noobs do. Then one day I discovered my landlord building a lamppost. I just sat and watched him manipulate prims & put in an on/off switch...and I thought "cool - it's like Lego, but you can squish the shapes!" from then I was hooked.

Whenever I manage to be on now I'm always making stuff for my shop. Maybe this year I might try to advertise a bit more...but probably not - I like creating too much!

Nope, finally home now! Took 3 hours to complete a 90 minute journey!.

Every 3 minutes an automated message played into my carriage apologising for the delay which was the result of snow on the tracks. No snow within a hundred miles of my train. Go figure! The conductor was a miserable **bleep** and wouldn't give us any information. 

What's more annoying is that 10 minutes after starting this thread the train moved about 1 mile down the track and stopped for another hour in an area where I, and hundreds of other angry commuters no longer had any phone reception so I didn't have the pleasure of reading all your answers to help pass the time.

Like Pam, I am surprised how international the forum community is.

This is a good opportunity for all you lurkers who barely post to come out and make yourself known too. We all want to know, where the hell are you and what on earth are you doing here?

The usual stuff... shopping, teaching myself how to build pointless quirky things, taking pics and wandering.

What have you mainly spent your time doing in SL in the past?  I've had a really varied SL past.  I was a police officer on a 53 sim continent for a long time, owned a lot of land, been a Master to two boys for over a year, started building and selling in 2010, which is what I do currently.  

How are you planning to spend your time in SL in 2013?  Building, making textures, selling, clubbing when I can, having fun!

When did you join SL originally?

Tail end of '07. Took some breaks here and there, but I've been here ever since.

What have you mainly spent your time doing in SL in the past?

Mostly RPing and working at some places. I used to build and do photography, but now I mostly sit around and decorate my house when my rp is being boring. Also hang with friends.

How are you planning to spend your time in SL in 2013?

Get better at fussing with mesh so I can make houses again (it's a slow process), rp someplace that is active and not cliquish >-> and hang with my friends more. Maybe take up working in a photo studio again, dunno yet!

Southwest Missouri, yep, bible thumping and tornados and cows everywhere! *waves to the other hicks she sees in the thread*

When did you join SL originally? 

I made an account sometime late 2010 or early 2011, but did not at all understand wtf this place was, and fled lol. I came back later when I ran across the forums and lurking here gave me the incentive to make another account and try again. 
 

What have you mainly spent your time doing in SL in the past?

Probably pretty much what all noobs do. Explored, made friends, hosted in a club for awhile, worked customer rep for a builder from whom I learned a little about building and sculpting, eventually decided SL work wasn't for me and officially became a bum :smileyvery-happy:

I have no idea :smileysurprised:
