Oh, so you got one of those ridiculous messages, too? About how the only reason EVERYONE posts is to get likes? (To get a higher forum score.) And here I thought I posted for other reasons, but I was told, in multiple messages by the same nutjob person that it is ALL about the likes and to say anything else was to be lying. Hey, what do I know, right?

I never get on the good lists.

So, this is me today... finally connecting the BoM dots. I can see how the potential layers can make a huge difference. My problem is that one of my tattoos developer/store is gone and I don’t think there is a system layer for it.... ugh.

You look amazing Sara!

I had that problem with no system layers on some of my alts tattoos, But Roxy got back one of my favorites that never made any appliers with BoM.

Some people put others down in order to make themselves feel confident. What they fail to realise is that confidence isn't thinking that you're better than other people; it's not feeling the need to compare yourself to other people in the first place. You can't fix yourself by breaking someone else.

It is often hard to tell if someone is trolling or projecting...

I think the best answer is "Of course. Isn't it obvious?" Then maybe ask, 'Would you like to know other ways to collect likes? '

They likely have a problem and may be a bit slow. So they are unlikely to notice you are trolling them.

I'm new in this forum and I found so many kind people that I'm really happy to be here but sometimes someone can hurt people without notice and without intention. 
For example for me not being a  native english speaking means do a lot of unintentional mistakes when I write something, I'm quite sure to have done it and I apologize for this...
(I think that someone know what I'm talking about)

an other example, few post above I writed that I was jelous of Conall but was a joke, but I'm not sure that was clear enough.
 

Not to worry. Over time your 'real' personality comes across. I think the majority of people here recognize there are language issues.

My thinking is one only needs to apologize when they decide they were out of line or truly regret something. Mistakes and language goofs are more of an acknowledgement thing... Oops stuff.

 

One meets so many interesting characters in Second Life...

No, because I blocked everyone from messaging me here anyway.

I did notice that most here 'like' WHO they like without regard to the actually graphic being posted, but that' s conduct being displayed at Flickr for instance as well.

Hence I post less here and there.

I think that "likes" function, as @moirakathleen has just expressed so well on another thread, as a way of bonding us together as a community, and acknowledging each other. Worrying about who gets more of them is I think pretty silly, and undercuts that purpose. This thread is not a photo competition, a beauty pageant, nor even a popularity contest: it's a place to share, meet, and chat. Or it should be: if it isn't, I think you're doing it wrong, myself.

Sure, it's nice to get likes, but you or anyone else has my permission to not bother responding to my pics. That's not really what makes me feel at home here anyway.

This, and the videos, are wonderful! I like the way you manipulated the Windlights in real time, too.

Needless to say, I also admire your athletic ability. I need to do one that shows me doing what I do best. Drinking coffee.

No, it's  not. Foremost, subjectively,  this thread is about individual (graphical) expression, which can be merited with likes or not.

I do find however there' s a grouptank in here disabling just that. And most are too involved with that to give an honest like when there should be one.

What’s an honest like, though? That’s not for anyone but the giver of the like to know. I honestly like everything I give reactions to.

And a darn purty one too.

I have to say that I really liked the look you had developed for yourself as a human, both in terms of your avatar and your style.

However, your father and I have talked this through, and we both want you to know that we love you, and are completely supportive of you, whatever direction you might choose for yourself.

Even if it means that our future grandchildren will need to be taken for walks and brushed regularly during molting season.

" Damn, I don' t like this person at all, but that' s a helluva good photograph. Wow!"  - like.

And to hit like after that thought.

This thread, in my opinion, has always been about "how does your avatar look today?" regardless of how well or how bad one is at taking and processing photos.  If you knew the person who started it - he appeared to be to be pretty zany and had a lot of different 'looks', and liked to have fun - so I generally think of this thread in that sense.  It is true that over time, there has been more emphasis on the graphic quality part, but that is a reflection of the interest of some people posting now who have been interested in, and sharing techniques, of improving graphic quality be it the visual part or the story part.  But that's not the only reason for posting in this thread and it certainly is not a requirement for posting in this thread.  I try to acknowledge everyone who shares here, because for me it's about "how do you look today" and not just about how well one can compose a picture (though I do also enjoy the beautiful compositions and stories that are appearing here now, as well).

According to whom, TDD? If one goes by the thread's title, and presumably its original intent, it's simply about showing off our avatars.

Your choice of word, "subjectively," makes my point for me: there are no guidelines, rubrics, or rules determining how we choose to judge posts here. Some people value high quality photos (whatever that means to them), and others just like seeing how people look in-world. I myself like pretty much everything here because I value and want to acknowledge the fact that people are sharing with me: that's worth a "like," regardless of the quality of the photo or the look of the avatar.

Without set guidelines, the "awarding" of likes here is purely arbitrary and personal -- and hence, in most respects, meaningless for all practical purposes.

So you like about everything for your social conscience. Others like nothing, because they care for themselves only. And somewhere in between games are played for the likes.
 

Why else would one contact Seicher with a message 'what this thread is really about'  ?
