  2. Who I am in RL is nobody's business but my own. I tell people what I want them to know about me and little else. I treat RL the same way. I don't tell businesses any more than they need to know for selling me things. I don't tell telemarketers anything. I don't care to have a facebook or Twitter account to tell the world what I ate for breakfast or what movies I enjoy. It's not a matter of hiding or even something as mighty as a defense of privacy (although I am not a crowd person, and would prefer to wander through life on my own). It's basically that I see no really good reason to be an o

  4. I particularly like the zones butted up against the log or cabin areas. I can imagine sipping my fruity tropical drink beneath the palms with the cool ocean breeze blowing through, and then getting on my trusted steed and taking a moonlit horseback ride through the cabins and woodsy areas afterward.

  5. It's called having boundaries. I don't hide behind my avatar but as a woman in SL I quickly learned there are lots of predatory men who will try to push past those boundaries and into your real life where they do not belong if you let them. I have had bad experiences with women too. My close friends know lots about me but people need to earn my trust to get to know who I am. For me, SL is definitely an extension of RL, it is not just roleplaying, and I am not one of these "SL = SL" people but you need to be cautious, just as in any other online space.

  6. I don't hide behind my avatar. My SL identity and my RL identity have been linked for at least 15 years. But I've been in the Sims and the SL communities for some 20 years. So why is it that I waited years to "reveal" my identity? Because it wasn't my choice. It was revealed by the SL Herald hacks with the help of Lindens and their friends, who didn't like my criticism of their bad behaviour on the forums. I decided when faced with that kind of outrageous unethical behaviour to make lemonade out of lemons. I wasn't going to give up my personal virtual life and communities and little busin

  7. No. Traffic is not a useful metric. Legacy Search is about the only thing that still uses Traffic as a major metric. Unfortunately with the Web Search currently a bit borked, users are having to relearn how to use Legacy Search effectively. This is also a topic that has been covered - in varied forms - repeatedly over the years.

  8. So are you people ready to lose all your lindens (and composure) this weekend?! This 2BR KraftWork house is only 75L; good for a small family like mine. Not particularly looking for a home now but who knows, we might move into some countryside estate soon: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/KraftWork/246/149/21 60L pool set from Your Dreams; very pretty but the LI is somewhat discouraging: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Cleantha/210/135/23 ( not something I would pay for full price, so I bought it immediately lol )

  9. Because they are a jerk, that's the only reason I can think of. Anyone who plays GOH at all knows that people watch the map to see what is available. (EDIT: To clarify, I am not talking about noobs who don't know better. I am talking about known GOH players who do what Tarra is talking about. I assume the purpose is to disguise how many homes they are grabbing, or maybe it is to mess with other GOHers and make them waste their rolls, who knows.)

  10. WHY? I have to ask this because why would someone name their Linden Home Linden Home and have people think it is still available and waste their rolls trying to get it?

  11. H is new to the forum so doesn't have photo privileges yet. She asked me to take an after-shot so you could see. With the stilt houses finally being rolled out, looks like Mercedes would benefit by putting the post on her Neighborly store :-) Anyways, here goes:

  12. So you revealed yourself to your community. Who cares? And what business is it of yours why people decide to keep RL separate? I am not surprised by this display of self-congratulation, after all it keeps you in the public mind. What next, a dance video?

  17. Sorry to contribute nothing new, but everything you said is 100% spot-on! Ditto! Private estates make me feel like an earthbound spirit who is imprisoned in an inaccessible dimension like the deceased couple in Beetlejuice; beautifully landscaped but desolate, no world to explore beyond illusory sim surrounds. I love mainland because I love being a part of the vast world that drew me to SL in the first place. The interconnectedness, the diversity, a world that is only limited by your imagination (or graphics card XP) and being a witness to other residents’ inner worlds made manifest through

  18. I learned this the hard way. This is why I have a “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy and the only thing that I divulge, and is consistent between both lives, is my timezone. It is the only thing outside SL that I believe affects my experiences in-world. Nobody has the right to know anything else. I am who I present to be, and you ARE who you present to be: representatives of characters whose life stories are authentic and legitimate in SecondLife but never in Real Life, if that makes sense. So keep it that way, please. If someone hounds me with questions about the person behind my avi, I reserve t

  20. You see many palms in people's gardens in the U.S.'s Pacific Northwest, which is a cool, rainy climate known for its evergreen forests. However, if you look closely you will probably see that they are "hardy" palms, tolerant of a wide swath of climate zones - really, to my eye, they are indistinguishable from tropical palms. They can add a tropical note to the concert of your garden There are even hardy banana trees, though I've never seen actual bananas on one! Here are nurserys that specialize in hardy palms. https://oregonpalms.com/ http://www.hookedonpalms.com/

  25. Great comment.. I do listen to all the songs.. this is how we learn about each other. Music is the great equalizer.. imo 😃 I sorta know people on this forum by the music they post... and seems like there are a few of us that love the same era!

  27. I would call them both off-white or light beige. That's what they look like to me. I took the color chart posted upthead and rearranged it in a way that makes more sense to me. Going through my inventory, it looks like I don't have much color variety in my closet. 😅

  28. The post provided by Mercedes worked perfectly. The railings provided in the Content Pack didn't fit the size properly, so I overlapped them. After placement I linked them all to create a deck railing with an LI of just 7. Woohoo!

  29. I don't hide (much of) my RL from others in SL. I won't give out enough information that my identity could be stolen, I don't usually give my location any more accurately than the nearest city, and I don't give any information about my RL partner or other family members or anyone else in my life because their info is not mine to share. I have a few SL friends that I have also met in RL and I'm happy to do that, or share a photo, or whatever. I don't use voice because I am dreadfully phone-phobic, and using voice in SL is 100% like talking on the phone, and that would just make SL 100% unpleasa

  31. For me, yes it would. I tried voice back in my early SL days, and listening to others completely changed how I viewed some folks. It ruined the illusion that I had created for myself of them. Similar to how a movie can ruin the illusion that one creates of the characters in a book. SL is an escape for me and I prefer to keep it that way, with as little of RL as possible in it.

  32. One thing I love about second life is the idea that you can do whatever you want, be whatever you want and the only limit to that is whether you or someone else can make it. One thing that drives me nuts about second life is the amount of people that want to tell you how to do it, flying in the face of the spirit of second life.
