Pet peeve: I often read posts by taking a quick look at the avatar picture in the circle over there <--- to ascertain who is saying what.

Jeebus @Scylla Rhiadra and @kiramanell ONE of you needs to change your photo! They are both near black backgrounds, dramatically dark faces, and I'm getting confused!

Well I WAS KIDDING           @Scylla Rhiadra

Change this to look what I made you do...

Oh I just have one pet peeve. I really can't stand people who are annoyed by either of the following: empty profiles, 'unreadable' fonts, unmatching body parts, flexi prims, AO-less avis, jazz hands,

DJs/hosts teleport inviting their "friends"

I'm not apportioning blame for what's been going on in this forum recently, because that's one thing that appears to start a thread on its downward spiral. Like many of us here - I am absolutely

*sniffs*

My self image here has taken an absolutely dreadful battering of late. Terrible accusations of stubbly toes and dark profile pics . . .

This isn't about you, it's about ME. It's about self-care!

*sniffs*

ETA: And gentle is still human, and will be again, I'm sure. But for the moment, I want to be obeyed.

Happy sigh.

Pet peeve: Not being able to give 3D hugs sometimes via SL forums.

Across a few threads, and a few people and most notably the sniffly, stubble-toed Scylla, Scylla, Scylla... THANK YOU. I haven't laughed so hard in the Forums in eons. :)

Oh sure, you're always kidding with Scylla.For ten years all I've heard is how Scylla is great at this, Scylla is a goddess, Scylla knows all the things, Scylla is never "acrimonious much". Scylla. Scylla. Scylla! :::pouts::: And whilst she was apparently changing her Profile picture, I, like a lame copy-cat, did the same. Always behind!

And I feel a bit guilty now! :)

But you both look mah-ve-lous, dahlings.

Clubs that make it so difficult to join as a dancer or escort, by having a big application form and wanting to know everything. This is not RL guys.......loosen up, please?

I'd be happy to do either but not the way it gets presented in SL.

I remember when I was looking for a job in SL back in the day. Became a store model in the end but I looked at the application form to be a dancer and it carefully specified "prim hair and realistic genitals". This obviously made sense, and I was hugely immersed in SL at the time, but I still found myself RL laughing so hard that I couldn't bring myself to apply. I just had this mental image of Hugh Hefner in his dressing gown lying back on a sun lounger praising all the bunnies for their prim hair and realistic genitals, or a punter being reassured that "we are a high-class institution, sir, all our girls have prim hair and realistic genitals". 

Especially funny when so many of them are RL men anyway.

One question I got on the application form today was .......

Your RL age..........

Now then, I get the over 18 thing. That  was further up.

But my RL age????????????? What does that matter?

So I binned it.

You should have just put "21".

Nah, you did right to bin it.

I wonder if that counts as a TOS violation? Probably not . . . ? But maybe?

Wait. Wut? :::lower lip quivers::: You're saying that many of the real girls in SL are... no no no... MEN? I've been here for 11 years and you are just now letting me know this?

I'm so disillusioned.

A couple of the men are actually women too.  It's just harder to recognize them.  They are better at disguises.

The disguise is a lot easier, too.

My man got offered to DJ at a club and on the app is asked for tons of information. One of the requirements was the song titles had to be disabled, which would be a violation of our licence. Also he needed to submit it on FB too.  Strike 2 as we are one of 11 people on the planet that avoid FB like the Covid. One last one was no songs before 2003.  Heck most of our music go way back. Strike 3, app file 13ed!

That's nuts. When I was a manager hiring DJs, the application I used was pretty short and sweet. I asked them if they used the mic, what genre they played, what was the stream URL, whether they needed a host, and what hours were they available. I did the promotional stuff on Facebook for them, although I did ask them to send their own group notices (most DJs seem to have fan groups).

That's how it normally works. Or did. Not all changes are for the best or even good.

I remember back when I was a newb I saw this sign at a club once that said it was hiring and so I applied. I had not been to the club before and generally didn't go to clubs much so I don't know why I wanted to do this at that time but anyway.  I think there was a form on  a notecard that I filled out. One of the questions on the form was can you emote?  Well I didn't know exactly what they meant by that but I said sure I can. They gave me an interview and for a while it was very confusing.  There was a bunch of them there and they never typed anything into local.  I was typing away and nobody was answering me or even asking me questions.  Finally figured out they were all using voice.  I hardly ever used voice because one) I don't like to wear headphones and two) most of the places I frequented didn't enable voice.  So I dug out my headphones and we continued the interview and they wanted me to demonstrate an emote.  I totally failed.  They didn't hire me.  Prolly just as well.

At the Junkyard where I've been hosting for the last 7 years or so I never filled out an application. After I'd been hanging out there for about a year, Dina just added me to the hosts role and told me I could host if I wanted to just change the role in my tag. And she gave me a couple of notecards about hosting at the Junkyard.  I hadn't even asked if I could be a host.  About a month later I was there when the host of the moment suddenly had to exit to RL and asked me to take over for her.  So I did. Before I knew it was the go to sub and  then I got a few permanent time slots.  Over time I dropped some of them so I wouldn't burn out, and now I'm down to just one a week.  I don't do emotes.  To me those things are kinda phony and annoying.  I just greet and talk to everyone and make sure everyone is having a good time.

Sleepy pet peeves because  It's too hot,, too late but I am a crabby robo kitty tonight:

When some folks jump onto any harmless not spammy  thread and derail it by meme'ing and saying how they don't  get it. Because the topic is some non mainstream  subculture or practise.

When you get a nice skin, demo it. it  works ok,  but  only  after buying the full version and a few days of wear do you  realise.

 

...The nip-nops are  just a few inches off. 😭

Another: When a performer kept bugging to play at my former club. Told him no and he had his partner/agent bug me. Again no. I heard the person one time and it was total karaoke. He is still "performing" in SL.

Pet peeve: My body right now. My nails are growing longer on one side than the other and it’s infuriating 😭😭😭😭. They’re so dainty and pretty on my left hand. Why can’t they be like that on the right? 😧
