  1. Responding to nobody in particular...Just a thought, didn't the OP essentially ask what you identify yourself as and not what others identified you as?
  2. Like many people, there are times when I am outgoing and times when I am not. I don't identify as either and don't care to label myself either way.
  3. Spin it however you wish but it changes nothing. It is quite simple in principle, either you pay for a service and the provider actually provides you the full service for the duration of the paid period irregardless of what you do or do not do or they are not fulfilling their obligations. It is easy to see that there is a reasonable expectation that if one aspect of the obligation is fulfilled then all aspects should be. Justifying not fulfilling part of an obligation by emphasising the technical difficulties is just an obfuscation of the principle and essentially boils down to supporting a general concept of "it is OK to renegade on part of a deal if it is technically hard to fulfil". People and companies attempt to get away without fulfilling their obligations all the time when they know they are likely to be able to get away with it. It doesn't make it right. That is the principle, in practical terms it doesn't mean that anyone pointing this out is letting this darken their day in any way, feels strongly enough to stop using the service or even expects it to be addressed immediately, etc. Arguments pointing out that this is just a trivial thing are a misdirection away from the principle of it. It doesn't matter how small a thing or fine point something is, if it is wrong then it is wrong in principle. If someone wants to say this then they should be able to say it without being trivialised and I think it is a good thing that some people feel that principles are important.
  4. I don't tend to make outfits any more either via the LL outfit concept or other ways. I just found everything gets out of date quickly and I almost never wanted the exact combination much more than once so they just sat there unused and didn't save me much time in the end. My inventory tree is organised in a way that is easy to navigate and so to me "getting changed" involves all selecting the things I want to wear each time. It doesn't take me long unless I am being indecisive. I have started to gather classic items from redelivery and boxes in case I get curious about BoM from time to time but honestly the skin situation puts me off going much further. However these items I have just kept with the appliers they came with. I never switch mesh body parts either, I just change what I have on. Even if I were to use it much, I cannot imagine BoM items would change the way I store or wear stuff really.
  5. In my experience, it has been this way for at least 6 years and hasn't changed any any aspect I can tell more recently than this.
  6. I generally prefer to chat with people I meet casually in chat. I sometimes try to encourage people who go straight to IM to move the chatty talk to chat when I don't know them or when I am with a group but usually it is a lost cause. Unless it is from a friend or someone I have initiated contact with previously, I don't respond to IMs from people who randomly IM me from somewhere else. The people who seem to hate chat the most are of the variety "Hi, you look great in that dress...A/S/L please!" 🤨
  7. Yes those are tattoos so your skin has to be worn in two parts. I don't know about you but if I were going away from appliers to BoM skins, I would want my skin to be a single proper skin wearable. I have read and understood 100% the rationale for doing this and I am still not fan. Needless to say, even if I was a big BoM fan, I would stop short of buying a crippled part skin, part tattoo like this. I am sure there will be others who don't give a hoot and feel this is fine. To each their own. An interesting tidbit is that a friend of mine was by a skin creator doing this that LL declined a JIRA to split the skins into head and body so, if true, even with the given rationale LL don't want skins split into two wearables either.
  8. I have been a dragon, a dinkie, a tiny, a petite, a human (alive and undead), a pair of boots and more I cannot remember. All of these have been female. Only a little bit curious from time to time about being male but if that took my fancy, I would explore it on an alt rather than mix them on one account.
  9. Death Is Nothing At All by Henry Scott-Holland Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner. All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it was before. How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!
  10. I grew up in the old colour sims and have many fond memories.
  11. I have gained a certain amount of proficiency during my time. I am often discovering and learning new things with it though.
  12. Not even a Linden can hide from a script or at least if they can they never do.
  13. I saw Graves on the list and knew it would suit my interests well. For the first name, I originally wanted Gabrielle which is the spelling the French use but that was already taken so I went with the German spelling of it instead. It is funny though because a lot of people in SL ask me if I am French. Obviously I am neither.
  14. I don't think of you as merely causing confusion so much as sowing the seeds of chaos.
