FC Hangout makes it to the Destination Guide

Recommended Posts

There are a lot of great places out there.

A Lot miss out by not submitting their place for inclusion

 

From the knowledge base ::

 

Can Residents suggest their own venues for inclusion in the Destination Guide?

Yes! Please visit the Destination Guide Suggestion Page. We value community input and encourage Residents to suggest their own venues.

My own experience is that inclusion can lead to an influx of misbehaving noobs.

This. Great to get some recognition and all but yesterday was painful there to say the least.YMMV.JMO

I agree, Mo! Sure, there were a couple of badly behaved people there last night (but they actually were NOT noobs), but it was awesome to watch folks like Maddy and Ossi patiently helping the shiny new members learn how to dance. :smileyhappy:

I love the noobs!  It always takes me back to my first week in SL...ah the memories...walking around like a pissed off pile of pixels with a torch in hand and box on my head...one shoe on...good times...good times...

Super!  One of the best things about the cartel is the group chat - wonderful resource for general info.  Do we have a prominent group joiner there?

Sites in the DG do indeed get a lot of newbies stopping by.  Is the Cartel HUD working again?  Sure would be great if someone of the more experienced folks could stop by when newbies are around.

If it's not working, there are other ways to do a similar function, tho scalability is tough to achieve.

I don't know about a group joiner, but that's a good idea.

About two weeks ago, Slack (the HUD maker, for those who don't know him) sent out a notecard:

Some of you have noticed that the Hangout HUD isn't working.It relies on an external server to send data, my hosting provider is moving the physical location of all their servers (from the East coast to the West coast) so we need to wait for this to be completed.I'll keep the group posted about any developments.

 
Last night people were wondering if the servers were being moved via Giant Snails...
:P

*nods*  Yes, it's true, the misbehaving folks weren't new to SL.  

 

It was great seeing so many new peeps stop by..and some even stayed for a while! :)

It was great to see some new faces at the Hangout last night. At first I had forgotten about the Destination Guide listing... it took me a while to realize that was the reason for the influx.

I haven't been very often but I'm glad I was there last night, that was fun. Although I'm not sure being thrown into the deep frier is a way to learn to dance. Then again, if you dance with Maddy you gotta expect some surprises.

And Sylvia somehow I've not seen your signature before. It is absolutely dead solid PERFECT.

Well diddle me with a large kipper and call me Poopy Bot! I've never even heard of the FC Hangout let alone know that it is popular. Just goes to show that if you don't have your finger on the pulse, you pretty much are dead!

Maddy was there? How come I have not seen her post to the new forums yet?

I hope you start coming by more often...we don't deep fry noobs every night, but it's still fun. :smileywink:

And thanks...I actually stole the sig from a friend for my profile. I could not think of any better way to say it myself!

I am thrilled to see that the hangout has made it into the destination guide. The hangout has long been a fixture to a lot of people, having withstood the test of time so far, and with any luck it'll continue on for long time to come.

We had a guy stop by this morning who started looking for stuff to complain about.  He went on about the (non-working) HUD being against the law  (his words, not mine) because it was remote monitoring.  He also accused someone who was there for the first time of using a hacked viewer.  Turns out he owns a bar that is not the top of the destinations list.

I do think it is cool we had our little happy shack recognized in the destination guide but if it is going to set us up for harassment from owners of clubs trying to make money, I wonder if it is more of a curse than a reward.

Hey, I heard something about this thing called "Red Zone" that you can use to keep undesirables like like that out of the club! Let me see if I can find you the link on Marketplace...

/me laughs.

 

Yeah, he mentioned that the HUD was like Redzone as well.  I asked him if he had a device to tell him when people were at his club he said he did but it was different because his club was private property so that was allowed.
