Progeny Vampire System

I think she is gone you guys....I think it's time to calm down. This seems to have nothing to do with the original subject, it's just a bunch of bullying now! Maybe this forum thread should be closed now?

Um... I actually sometimes do wear a crown... lol.  But, of course, I know very well that I'm not "Lord of this Forum" and have never claimed to be.

Did I miss Tremere saying that? Or did she delete the text because it is grammatically incorrect as well as factually suspect?

/Because "Lord of this Forum" obviously applies to me.

I'm sorry but what did she say that was considered 
grammatically incorrect?

There should (at least) be a comma in the phrase I have highlighted.

A semi colon would do, but it would be pretentious

A full stop would also be correct, but clumsy.

I too take offense when these nitwits make me part of their little biting game, without my permission. 
If there is a way to stop Bloodlines bites, there should be a way to stop these too. Hated learning I am some phantom and never even knew when my name was added to their ridiculous little list

There is now a ring available that shows someone wearing the fangs that is free.  This ring will tell you who is wearing the fangs and the version.  as long as they are 1.5m away you are safe.

Since Progeny has no problem with people being bitten without their knowledge or consent, I have to muse with all the talent out there if someone could come up with a System or Object that would interfere with the Progeny system from interacting with those wearing it?  

It might even be wonderful if the talented programmer found a way to destroy the vampire that was attacking.  I mean what  grievance would the vampire have?  "I was biting this avatar and all the sudden i found i was destroyed/crashed/ejected/frozen!"

Sadly, I don't have the skills to create such an item!

I don't see how this HUD is any more intrusive in its collection of data (said data designed for collection) or in any other way harmful to anyone.  No, you were not asked permission. Yes, an interaction was recorded.

Lets look at another scenario:

I have not asked to be put into YOUR RP.....

(6:times:per:day:2017) Every idiot male in SL: Yer hottt!!! ;)

(6:times:per:day:2017) Me:  Thanks but i'm not interested in pixel porn.

(6:times:per:day:2017) Every idiot male in SL:  Want to come to my place?

(6:times:per:day:2017) Me:  Thanks but i'm not interested in pixel porn.

(6:times:per:day:2017) Every idiot male in SL:  (Insert misogynistic anti-female expletive)

Now how is this not worse?  I didn't ask to be a part of your RP.  Your chat records store not only the time and date of the interaction but also my name and responses.  In fact it even stores my name and other data ON your system if i fail to respond at all.  This is mild compared to the many other IMs I get on a regular basis from men and sometimes women "touching" me in IM without permission. 

Many if not all of the people here are guilty of far worse than playing a HUD game.  So from now on if you send me an IM without permission, by your own whiny standards, you are infringing on my digital civil rights and I will report it to Linden Labs.  My humble apologies if a silly HUD game gets in the way of your carnal interests.

THANKS, BUT I'M NOT INTO PIXEL PORN.

You can block people from sending you IMs, and no your conversation, or lack thereof, is not saved on every system of everyone that contacts you, unless they have it set up that way(and a great deal of residents do not log chats, therefore will have no record of most interactions they have with people).

Just as you believe people shouldn't IM you with such messages without your consent(and I agree, it's tacky to say the least), others are free to believe progeny players shouldn't be able to bother them at all, much less without consent. 

It's not difficult to ignore people that IM you, it IS difficult, however, to not end up on progeny's lil list(s), when you don't even know it's happened.

In neither instance is anyone truly "harmed", but hey can both be seen as annoyances, minor as they might be to some of us.

I ignore folks that IM me and I don't want to speak to them all the time, lol. I don't engage in their RP, or whatever the heck it is they are after...simple. I can't ignore being involved in progeny's RP however, because it happens instantaneously, often without any knowledge on my end at all. 

I'm perfectly capable of not caring about it (and I don't care about it, lol), just as I'm perfectly capable of not caring about receiving those kinds of messages from folks.

Your assumptions about what "many if not all of the people here" take part in are unfounded and as ridiculous, to me, as the people saying being added to progeny's lil list(s) is harmful to them in some manner. That doesn't mean they *are* ridiculous, just that they are *to me*.

Its so nice to see this topic is still generating interest! 

Is Progeny Vampire even still going? Last I heard they had all run for the hills after another game (fronted by Oberon) poached their players, lol.

What game was that? And yeah, I have heard neither head or hair of Progeny. I don't know how obnoxious it would be or how it might work.....

Still generating interest? You're the first person to pot in the topic in 6months!

This topic was't even going until you decided to make it going again.

And even that was after someone did some voodoo and necromancy, and resurected the post after being dead for two years a couple posts before...

So yeah, really not generating that much interest

Nobody answered the question. Is Progeny still an active game, or not?

Their website is 500 error and their sims are not accessible.

I still find some PV players from time to time, but from what I have seen they are a shadow of their former numbers. There are other games now that do much the same as PV, that is, getting you onto a database that you don't want to be on. I wont name names here but if you are interested then please IM me in world and I will spill the beans. xx

Leash Holder Ring - NF custom - nx-VIIa

That is the name of the sniffer I got. You wear it and it lists in chat the names of the avatars wearing progeny attachments, and the distance from you. This is in the entire sim. It is not available in the marketplace, you need to make friends in high places to get it.
Surely the Progeny do not mind. It is all part of the game, isnt it? I just know they would rather not have it easy.
But then, there may be a reason why they say the Progeny are those who could not make it in to Bloodlines...

ROFL, OK so one of the vamps complained about someone else wearing heavy scripted items in SL, I pointed out she wears some of those unnecessary items herself in public chat, and guess what... exposing them makes you popular. She's following me now in SL =^.^=

Not sure if this is supposed to be some scare tactic, but I begin to suspect those guys really just need a hug.

Your last point is a very valid one. Most of the STATUS of Progeny players seem to come from and depend on, their soul count in Bloodlines. I would conjecture that probably the costs of building and keeping a reasonable soul count in Bloodlines was just too much for them, so they decided to start again, with a "free to play" game that allowed them to keep their Bloodlines status and give them access to similar people in Bloodlines that couldn't really afford to play. Its just a thought!

I would consider this a Cyber Crime, specifically under Sect 72- Breach of Confidentiality and Privacy. Possibly Sect 66 - Hacking Systems and Data Alteration (I paid for my avi and her upkeep, someone has now forever ALTERED her in the system).

This is not a private game when Names are associated with an action they never knew or consented to. I cant copy and paste an IM but someone can claim they performed an act on my avatar?

I play Bloodlines, but they ask me permission, without whichProgeny would be adding me to their game and websites against my consent, my digital identity and intellectual property. I might even want to play with them! Maybe,, but they must ask.
