What are some of your pet peeves?

From the "Intolerants"??

No, I had no disapproval or negative reactions  at all. Actually I got a lot of positive comments from people. But there were also one or two men who let it be known that they approved a bit too much. 

I think I can sort of understand why someone might be drawn to what they perceive as something very feminine and nurturing, providing sustenance and so on. God knows what the lactating woman gets out of it, though. I enjoyed feeding my baby, but sexy it was not. Still, I can think of worse things. I do wish they'd left me alone in RL though.

Since it is a topic also on the front page of general discussion:   Security orbs that give you 10 seconds to leave.  If I was fully rezzed in I would happily leave of my own accord but sometimes it takes more than 10 seconds to select a new location and hit teleport.     People aren't going to these sims to annoy the people that live there, they more than likely have the landmark because it used to be a business and have no idea now that it's someone's private residence.   I am not saying they can't help them along by notifying them - just give maybe 30 seconds instead.

Is that a thing? I was under the assumptions that most creators simply use one of their own avatars or friends to create their vendor pictures, instead of hiring and paying a stranger to pose for them. Just like shop owners now tend to use bots in their stores, instead of real peoples avatars. I remember, when there was a time promises of sucessful modeling carriers in SL where (almost) a scam directed at clueless newbies.

I work as a model in Second Life.   I went to Miss Virtual World Modeling Academy.  Learned the ropes.  Got in contact with other people that ran magazines (BOSL and SL FIerce) and am part of the BLVD modeling agency where I do castings for the BOSL  fashion layouts.  I have to limit my fashion show / pageant involvement because my schedule doesn't really allow for it (though I was Miss Virtual World Canada 2018).    I used to work as a live model for Purplemoon Creations and Ghee.  So I wouldn't say it is a scam.  I have seen some that don't want to put the time in to submit castings or get involved with the people that can open the doors for them though.   Can't blame the industry for people like that.   Also the fashion industry has changed in that more bloggers than models are being asked to showcase the merchandise.  But even that can be unreliable if people don't take the time to blog like they said they would.

I hate short timed orbs too. Some I have seen ranged from Now to 60 seconds. Although I inherited an orb from someone who left SL, I just use it for a visitor counter for the club I run with a friend since it had that feature.

I do remember a SL live music performer landing in someone's bedroom where a club used to be.  I was told it was one he played at every 2 weeks and between that time the club closed up and someone put their house there!

Okay, I've only read one page so far as I've not been in this thread yet.

I see not wearing a hairbase as one.

Okay, my pet peeve relates to hair in general.

A lot of the hair looks like wood to me.

Before I became a Dinkie recently and when I was a human, I found one hair I was really liking that looked soft, had good texture and a hairbase built-in, and that hair is Magika's new hairs of which she doesn't have that many...but the textures are alive looking and not so much like textured wood.  I know different lighting can help certain hair textures...but certain lighting to me is only good for photographs because it hurts my eyes.  Magika's new hairs, however, look great in any lighting...and that soft (non-wood) looking hair is what I would like to see new hairs in SL leaning towards.

Mostly, the hair textures themselves are terrible.  

As a human I mostly used Dela hair, though have a lot of different hairs from a lot of sources.

As a Dinkie, I will need hairs with an x, y and z menu because Dinkie heads are wider on the x axis and I'll be looking for softer looking hair and better textures.

But, I just wanted to state my pet peeve is hair looks too much like wood and the textures are not so good for the majority of hairs I've found (except Magika's whose textures are amazing in any light).  

Try Stealthic or Sintiklia.  They don't have that plastic-y wood look.

This just happened again … DJs that talk over the music on the mic … Hello visitor 3720, Hello visitor 3721, Hello visitor 3722, Hello visitor 3723 ….. Shadup and play music!

I’d actually prefer that to a “DJ” that just plays a play list. A speaking DJ feels more real to me and a greeting makes me feel just a little more wanted at the venue.

Reminding the audience about the tip jar three or four times per song really helps make a great show too.

total change of subject but for it it's when i see someplace neat on destinations with a description like 'come check out this serene forest!' and then when i get there turns out its an ultra-horny forest club / rp sim

..which is why i don't use destinations to explore anymore

Gawd I hate that! My man DJs in world and was canned from one club for not talking over the music saying that stuff and telling the people to tip the club every 45 seconds.  That place even got on my man's rear for letting the song titles display. He told them due to the PRO license he could not turn those of and would not turn those off.

On another not, he does have a regular shift at another club (which been around for over a dozen years) and the owners there prefer listening to the tunes and having a good time and limiting the chatter to every few songs to back-announce the song names. All the DJs at that club are long time ones and all have deep music libraries.

Sure it's been mentioned before but stores that sell prefabs and don't mention the most important info of both footprint and Li on their advertising/vendor, If i'm having a look round an event demo at something specific then see a build that i might be interested in but looks possibly a bit too big. see vendor, it's great the build is only 40 something Li zero mention of size means i'm not going to risk buying it

When there are two people in one blog pic, yet they only credit the one person. If you are only crediting the one person, why have the other person in the shot? It seems kinda pointless really, I want to know what the other party is wearing too.

Agreed. IMO people who put up security orbs with a 10 second limit should have their SL accounts permanently deleted. Yeah, I know it's not gonna happen, but in my ideal version of SL it totally would.

The most beautifully created wilderness  sims which have lots of movement, but as a consequence are laggy.

I take it that you mean the reposting of someone else's something as though it is their own original? Yeah. Happens all over the Internetz. When I do it I always try to give credit from where I got it. I did grab some thoughtful stuff for my alt's profile and there wasn't room to credit, but I did ask permission before using it. It's almost funny, if it weren't so sad, that simple social-politeness has pretty much tanked these days.

My biggest pet peeve applies in-world and out: People who inject emotions into anything you write, then inject new meanings into whatever you specifically wrote, because they ignore context and word meanings and, instead, presume alternate meaning than what is actually expressed.

Pet peeve: My taste. Why I gotta be so oddly specific about stuff?


Example - tried to find a simple medieval styled dress for a character I'm making for funsies. Here's my specifics:

  • Needs to be rigged to Maitreya
  • needs to be rigged well enough for me not to have to alpha  out parts, or has to have autohide (I'm sure I could solve that by not being so lazy, so this one is propably more my own ignorance)
  • Needs to be simple looking, so no fancy embroidery
  • Can't be too ragged!
  • rock can't be too wide
  • can't be too narrow either!
  • can't look too bulky, especially around middrift and shoulders
  • needs to be modest, no cleavage to the navel, arms should be mostly covert, no shoulder free
  • Needs to be high quality - no template with seamless textures slapped onto it.
  • must be either the exact shade of my eyes (lol yeah, impossible), or must be a very specific shade of some drap and dull color of my choosing.
  • Needs to have a certain texture to the fabric


Suffice to say, didn't find what I was looking for. BUT I found something else instead, which I am happy with. But my peasant girl did climb the social latter one or two steps to wear it.
This is just an example - I'm mostly like this when I want something, I got a VERY specific image in mind and -of course- have trouble finding it, and scratch whatever look I originaly was going for. Needless to say, that can be quite frustrating.

Forgot a point... because of course I was even more specific, lol.

I do stuff like that. Those are the moments you realize there are many things, nobody thought to create and bring inworld.

I usually enlist help when I’m in my ocd bag. I feel like a bee when the people trying to help me find it and what they find isn’t up to the weird standard I had.

Last time I had a helper who's usually just as ***** about stuff like that as I am, she exclaimed "Oh my god, Suku, you are just too picky" and left in a huff. *sobs*

The censoring in this forum is driving me bonkers at some point.

And when they find something janky looking, you feel that flash of anger. Then you’re all, “why am I being like this?!”

Not anger though, it's more like a flash of high concentrated frustration because for a short moment, I'll have gotten my hopes up, lol.

This is more of a personal one. I'm a blogger, and there are a couple of sponsors that I feel that are over sexualizing SL. Whether it through be decor, clothes or poses. I have always prided myself as a modest blogger, but for one of my requirements for one of my sponsors. Your blog must have one new item, mainly these items have been overly sexual. Like sex toys, or showing of certain bits of a lifestyle I believe should stay in the bedroom. I really don't want to leave, but at the same time I don't want to have to change my blogs or my methods, just to appease the sponsors. I know it sounds like an entitled rant. But it just really bugs me, I love this company wholeheartedly and own some of their products. Mainly accessories, but it's been hard lately. I guess to get to the point, it just bugs me how over sexual SL has become. Every flicker photo is "tasteful" nudity or blatant porn. You will find the odd blogger on flickr, who like me. Maintains that modest look, but lately it feels like that is hard to come by. Especially since a lot of events are promoting this ideology. I know I am gonna be labelled a prude. But It just bugs me deep down in my core.

Pet Peeve: people using the Upcoming Events to list their rentals, or events listed that are so explicit in the listing, it makes me think that no one in LL is actually monitoring the Upcoming Events listings anymore. Is there any way we can block this on our Dashboard?  🤨
