I must be an exception but then I read pretty much everything I see except billboards and ads... and fan fiction. I came from the old school of sigs being a reflection of a facet of the poster. Much like yours does only with pictures.

Your sig does work. At least, it has worked once. On me. lol No, it wasn't a case of I was going to IM you to continue an argument but you might have taken my question as such so I just respected your wishes and let it go.

Heh, good to know it does get read and function, even if sometimes not in the intended way! Questions, i don't much mind!

   Today's pet peeve: Fatpack exclusives.

   You put up an advert with a really pretty pattern on a dress, and the dress is coming out at a popular event after a few days. I've been wanting this dress for three days, and finally get into the event only to find that the pretty pattern is an FP exclusive. I can get it in plain white, or some boring patterns.

   I want one colour. I could see myself maybe using two of them. But not for the price of 3 dresses.

   In this case it's even 9 colours in the FP, and only 4 of them are sold as single packs.

   Yes, a creator is free to do whatever they want - but that's just going to get me to unfollow them on Flickr and avoid their brand in the future.

Conversely, I hate it when we need to buy the fatpack to get that one basic and totally wearable for everyday color or design, and only the bold/trendy/avant-garde prints are sold individually. Not everyone is a “fashion blogger” who wants to stand out all the time. Another pet peeve of mine is when creators provide only 1 color or untextured mesh for the demo and the item comes in 72 different colors/textures. People demo not just for the fit but also how the color/print looks on them. It is hard to rely on imagination alone, and there is a thing such as skin undertones even in SL. While I like pink, it is not safe to say that any shade of pink will look flattering on my avatar/myself.

I follow this fashion principle in RL and SL:

Being a bit petty on this one and I know it isn't gonna change but ... The entire Mac/PC BS. No. That Mac/MacBook is still a Personal Computer/laptop. Microsoft/Windows is not "PC" .... it is an Operating system that was allowed to become synonymous (through a marketing campaign) with Personal Computers.

It gets even more annoying when you're not on a "mainstream" OS.

Stop conflating the Operating System with the type of computer.

Many don't realise the computer is just the box that runs the OS.

There are some in the US that are advocating for staying on Standard time and others that want to stay on Daylight Saving time.  No way to please everyone.  I want us to stop changing, but I don't really care which time we stay on.

Saving time is an illusion. We can make our clock say it's any time we like but unless we conform to the official time we will be late or early and miss things. Really we are spinning around on a ball that's revolving around the sun and it continues to spin and revolve at the rate it does no matter what time anybody says it is.

It''s really about power.  The idiots in charge declare that you must adjust the time you rise and the time you sleep and the time you open and close to conform to suit them twice a year like it or not.

Still freezing cold :( Could swear it was warmer in February...

We were in the upper 70s just a couple of weeks ago, but we just had 6 inches of snow in the last 48 hours.  I'm pretty sure we have had more snow in the last 6 weeks than we had all winter.

I'm definitely ready for it to truly be Spring.

Ok, this one has been brewing for a bit ....

Since the move to AWS, more and more users seem to be only now noticing things that have been issues (to one degree or another) for years now and that some creators and such have been doing what they can to work around them for just as long. And they're blaming the move to AWS on these issues.

No, the move did not suddenly cause these issues, folks. At worst they exacerbated them for now.

Some of you are doing nothing more than showing your mental bias by only now noticing these things or by blaming the recent backend changeover on the issues.

Wasn't the map the only major things 'broken'.and is only now getting fixed?

There were "minor" breaks prior to the move but the move itself did indeed seem to cause the map to malfunction.

Though with that in mind, it is more likely that the move brought to light the root change that needed to be made.

SL has a major problem in that most of it's users don't have a blind clue as to how it works, and so anyone can say anything, and people will believe them so long as it's not totally insane, regardless of whether it's correct or not.

Admittedly, LL doesn't help this issue as even a lot of creators encourage bad practice, and the customers assume that people who create stuff for SL know how it works (a lot of the time, this isn't true). LL really need to put a simplified 'content creation guide' on the Wiki to give a basic rundown of best practices when making content.

As well as being a bit more transparent around issues the platform is experiencing.
