Devin Heartsong Posted July 5, 2019 Share Posted July 5, 2019 (edited) So far all known DJs in Bellisseria are signed on to this treaty, and we're all happy to welcome new DJs and moar music to our beautiful Bellisseria. Woot! ================================================================== First, the current list of Pirate DJs and their regular and on-going weekly timeslots! These event times are also in the Events Calendar at bellisseriahappenings.com and also in The Bellisserian newspaper. Check these locations and also watch for group notices in the Bellisseria Events group to learn where, exactly their show takes place each time. Many of us pop around to different parcels or public locations each week! ---------- Doc Rast - Sundays from 10am-2pm SLT Sophia Day - Thursdays from noon-1:30 SLT FAR Dharma - Thursdays from 1:30pm-3pm SLT Scottish Sarah - Saturdays from 10am-noon SLT Baphy - Saturdays from noon-2pm SLT ----- DJ Usagi - Random days and times North Crannock - Random days and times Claw D'Arcy Streeter - Random days and times Keland - Random days and times ElissaStar - Random days and times ---------- If you're a new Bellisseria resident and you want to be a Pirate DJ, reach out to Baphy (fushchou.mfume) or Kaos (kitten.kaos) and we'll help you get added to the event calendar! =================================================================== Next, the treaty itself! Ahoy ye Bellisseria community residents who also be DJs! Here be a loose "treaty" and honor code that has arisen to help stave off the bloodthirsty duels and fierce broadside fusilades that can occur in a club-free land of freedom and party-hungry residents such as our fair Bellisseria! We pirate DJs are a free-spirited lot, but we are not without honor, and we abide the spirit of voluntary cooperation that permates all of Bellisseria! We be hoping that all Pirate DJs will abide a few simple points of honor for sharing the love and attention of our fellow Bellisserians! And also for abiding the strange covenant of the land, so that the Royal Navy does not decide we are pests that must be removed from these fair seas and shores. ======================== "The Pirate DJ Treaty of Bellisseria" ======================== Be it known that Bellisseria is a land apart from the rest of SL. The community spirit is strong, and there are no commercial clubs or commercial endeavors allowed by the Linden Covenant. The incentive to DJ in Bellisseria is akin to throwing a block party for one's neighborhood. Some people bring food dishes. Some people bring drinks. Some people set up the picnic tables and the barbeque pits. And there's always that one person in the neighborhood who brings the speakers and the turntables and provides the music. For FREE. Just to entertain friends and neighbors and help the community spirit thrive. The "Pirate DJs of Bellisseria" are a cooperative "guild" of resident DJs who operate in this community spirit. We don't ask for tips nor put out tip jars. Not even on our own private parcels. We play only to bring joy and to liven up a party or event--or to create a spontaneous party out of thin air! We play because we are citizens of Bellisseria and want to help make Bellisseria a fun and friendly place for everyone. When throwing a party or casually spinning on your own parcel or playing at a large vent, guild members also work to promote awareness of the Guild and of the other DJs in the guild. We do so by mentioning the guild's name and the names of all the member DJs at least once during a show. We also mention our commitment to "no tips; just love" at least once per show. And when approached by event organizers, we mention that other great DJs in the guild are potentially available too, and would the event like for several of us to provide music over a longer total duration? We recognize that Bellisseria is an ever-growing land, with new residents appearing every week. Among these new residents will constantly appear NEW DJs who want to join in the local community-oriented DJ scene. Who will want the existing DJs to fairly share both specific community areas such as the Pickle beaches and Fairgrounds, and also to fairly share the more desirable time slots. Because we are driven by a spirit of sharing and cooperation, we do not believe in an "I was here first, so this is MY spot" mindset. Instead, we believe in a fair and equitable sharing of the more desirable time slots for local DJ parties and events around Bellisseria. Such sharing is managed in an extremely simple way as follows: 1. A publicly-posted schedule of regular, on-going timeslots and locations is available in several places: A) The Bellisseria discord server, in a pinned post in the #pirate-djs-of-bellisseria channel. B) In a static page of the bellisserahappenings.com site. C) In every single issue of The Daily Bellisserian newspaper, in the Events section. And D) In a running forum post in the Land section of the Second Life forums. All four of these locations will be managed by Baphy and Kaos and the schedule is identical in all four places. 2. The posted schedule comprises ONLY the regular, ongoing timeslots for each active Pirate DJ in the guild. 3. If any guild member wants to throw a spontaneous last-minute party or spin session OUTSIDE of these scheduled timeslots, they may do so with no notice to the rest of the guild members. 4. Every guild member must maintain awareness of the currently posted schedule and must NOT schedule a party, unilaterally agree to perform at a special event, or throw a spontaneous last-minute party during ANY other member's regular, ongoing timeslot. In the case of requests to DJ for a special event (by some Bellisseria event promoter for a special event such as Julyfest, Pride, etc.), you MUST first check with the guild member whose regular, ongoing timeslot would be impacted, and either negotiate to somehow share the special event DJ performance, or else work with the event promoter to find a different timeslot that will not adversely impact the other guild member's regular, ongoing timeslot. 5. Should a NEW DJ appear and want to become known as a community-oriented member of the guild, they can choose to join the guild and observe its honor code in good faith. Doing so enables the newcomer to negotiate with the existing guild members for the newcomer's desired regular, ongoing time slot (and typical locations). If the time slot they desire overlaps with an already-occupied time slot, then the guild meets to agree upon a simple method for SHARING the overlap, and the updated schedule is posted to all the outlets listed in point #1 above. The two possible ways to SHARE the overlap are simple: Option One - SPLIT - The current DJ(s) and the new DJ can slice up the timeslot and treat it as a duo (or trio) act. For example, instead of the "DJ Baphy show" from noon to 2pm SLT every Saturday, it can become the "DJ Baphy and DJ Krew show" from noon to 2pm SLT every Saturday, with Baphy taking one of those hours and Krew taking the other hour. (or noon to 3pm, with each taking a 1.5 hour slot, etc.) The two DJs can arrange between themselves how to trade off a parcel stream or just use Doc's technology to swap from Baphy's parcel stream to Krew's URL stream, etc. Option Two - ALTERNATE - The current DJ(s) and the new DJ can agree to alternate who plays in the timeslot every week. For example, one week it's Baphy's slot, and the next week it's Krew's slot, and they keep alternating like this. 6. A similar type of negotiation occurs when any of the EXISTING DJs desire to change their preferred timeslot, for any reason.
