  1. 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

  2. I actually think it was your intention for this thread to go exactly how it has and you were hoping to take people down with you. On that note and since the cat gifs weren't enough to sideline this thread, I shall bid you a farewell and I'd ask for your stuff but....nah.

  3. Dear people, I've gathered you here today to pay our final respects to the late, if somewhat unlamented SL account, "LordHappycat." Ashes to ashes, pixel to pixel. RIP.

  4. Group Chat has been an issue for a very long time - blame people who decided it was a good idea to use it for socializing The Pie Menu options are context sensitive - they do not simply randomly change There are options to disable the Camera Constraints and there actually is a minimum zoom level, learn how to use the camera The Web Search has pretty much always had its own issues, which is why Firestorm (and a few other TPVs) still offer the Legacy Search - use it Welcome to Second Life. Also do not expect your thread here to exist for too long. Rants are not too much of

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Despite what you may think, OP, you're still very very wrong in your assessment of the situation and intention behind many of the responses you've gotten in this thread. No amount of screenshots will aid in response to any actions the Admin/Moderation team have - been there myself (hence why I have some of the reactions I do to things here). ETA: About the only thing it will mitigate is potential future reports/actions taken on posts/responses that had not yet been brought to the Admin/Moderation team's attention. Again, personal experience there. You can assume the intent of th

  9. To Nothappy OP: We all have moments of puking it all up. Got room for that. Don't necessarily have the time to deeply think and offer solutions to you though until the drama cloud has passed, because I cannot read your post. But hey, we all feel it now and then. But gosh, expecting civility, in any world, is what sets humans apart from the animals of the field - lashing out at folks here in my experience has left the thespian only more alone in their pursuit of more happiness. Here's the short skinny: Your screaming when you puked it all up made me skip every 2nd-15th letter and spac

  14. There is something called outrageous overshadowing. This means that your reaction to something is so outrageous that the object of your reaction gets a free pass. That is what happens here. Nobody can address this person's grievance because his reaction is so hostile and outrageous everything else pales by comparison.

  19. Um. There are a great many legitimate complaints one might make about SL, or about LL's handling of aspects of the platform. As for Firestorm -- it's a free viewer created by volunteers. Overall, it is EXCELLENT. Constructive criticism might be happily accepted, but vituperation isn't really appropriate. As for the comment above -- and I can't believe I'm actually defending Alwin here -- that is totally uncalled for, and pretty much wipes out any credibility you might have had. Can I suggest an apology, and maybe hit the reset button, if you wish to actually discuss these issues

  21. 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

  22. 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 )

  23. 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.)

  24. 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?

  26. 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?

  33. Well if that isn't good enough reason to nuke things I don't know what is. OP, concerns for ya, no more coffee, take a deep breath, I get your angst. It's ok you feel that way, its ok to post here, know the consequences of how you post may result in unintended endings, and please for your own health, this place and we and our *also ok opinions* here are not worth your putting your body and all through that much agony. Try another viewer, or another sideline, or just go back to cable tv maybe. YouTube fireplace videos are wonderful relaxers. For your own health.

  34. The great thing about Second Life is that you can always just walk away. Nobody is forcing anyone to participate in something that adds stress and rage to their lives. Participating is a choice you make, learning how to participate is also a choice you make, Leaving is also a choice you have, Make good choices!

  35. 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

  36. 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

  37. 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/
