  1. The people you are looking for will have enough grasp of the english language to understand your posting in english. I am a native speaker of german (and a journalist in RL) and I get only a very basic idea of your idea. Machine translations still suck. Good luck with finding the right person (not me since I don't want to be a virtual journalist and "hate" sports) for commenting on SL sports events.
  2. Thanks to all of you for your prompt help. I guess without your help I would have spent hours with trial and error. :matte-motes-smile:
  3. I am looking for an easy way to determine which face of a cube points up on the z-plane. I want to script a dice. After some arbitrary rotations on all planes one side (face) is pointing up but which one? Thanks for your help.
  4. How about contacting other writers in-world and ask them about their experience? Ask them about their experience how to overcome a writing blockade. Visit Book Island and contact Sandor Zabelin. You will meet many like-minded people there and they have a regular writer's chat. I have no idea about your "insomnia" problem. I was alwaysa bad sleeper myself since puberty and still am thirty years later. You learn to cope with it but that's not really a help, don't I know.:matte-motes-yawn:
  5. The touch of her hand on my naked skin. The feeling of her soft skin under my touch. The sparkle in her eyes when she smiles. Her well-meant mischief. The way she smells when she is eager and the different one afterwards. Her way of having fun while going for a certain target and not just the male single-mindeness of reaching that target. How she makes me see that 2+2 may equal 5 after all. When she reanges things and prims in a room and it looks much more harmonic and beautiful afterwards. Yes, the cuddling is exceptional.

Or, publish the results on your blog and point us there. I, personally, have no interest in counting avatars when I go inworld. Dear Venus, good luck, this survey isn't important for me. I just wondered when I read about a supposed "shortage of men" in SL and thought maybe the power of numbers (meaning several people counting) would bring enlightment. I have to admit that I didn't proceed with counting myself since my opening post. You are right, Second Life time is to precious to spend with counting genders. Nevertheless, the interesting posts in this thread have a value themselves.
  7. May I friendly remind everyone to stay on topic? Looks as this has become a very interesting discussion about scared children and cross gender dressing. Please go in-world and collect some raw data! Just as a reminder: Please use the following structure to make it easier for me to evaluate your posts and put the results back here on the forum. Name of place:Ahern SLurl:e.g. http://slurl.com/secondlife/Ahern/100/100/26/ Date:e.g. 2011-05-27 Avatars counted:22 Males counted:10 Females counted: 8 The total number of Avatars counted may be higher than the addidtion of males and females due to transgender and undefinable avatars like robots. Thank you for participating!

  10. Good question. I guess the "feeling" that there is a shortage of males means a shortage of RL males with male avatars. As you stated correctly there is no reliable way to know the true RL gender . Let's assume that most male avatars are avatars of RL males. Well, your guess is as good as mine.
  11. I have read several times now that there is a supposed "Male shortage" in Second Life. Indeed? Or is that just a perceived shortage? Well, I doubt this shortage because I perceive it otherwise. Let's find out. This may not be a scientific and academic valid survey but if enough of you participate it will give us something more than just a "feeling".I would like to ask you to post the statistics of a few places your regularily visit here on this forum. Please post only places where you find 10 or more avatars.Don't post results of places that are expressively gender oriented like gay or lesbian places.Don't hesitate to visit places that have been posted by you or others before. Different times may yield different results. Please use the following structure to make it easier for me to evaluate your posts and put the results back here on the forum.

  12. @Claireschen Hesten: You were your friends muse. Very inspiring indeed. @UncommonTruth: Don't give up. There are romantic guys out there. @Faithless Babii: That's so lovely. Congratulation to such a partner. @Storm Clarence: That's sad. I hope that you find someone someday who says something more romantic to you. @Venus Petrov: Very impressive. Yes, I can imagine that this was said by someone close to you. @Sashay Wildrose: Ah, that's so romantic. You found a true treasure in this person.
  13. I collected some romantic messages from some friends of mine for my exhibit at the SL 8th birthday event some months ago. Most of them answered "I love you". Well, from the right person this is indeed the most romantic thing to tell someone else, don't I know, but ... ... but, I got some other very inspiring and creative love declarations as well. I would like to know which line impressed you most besides the classic "I love you". What did someone say to you that made you think "I am really loved"? :matte-motes-inlove:
  14. Congratulations to your partnership. Well, my own one lasted three years before she tragically died in RL. I know many people with long time partnerships, meaning three or four years. After all many of us meanwhile oldtimers joined SL during the big Hype. Yours is by far the longest lasting I have ever heard of.
  15. Well, the important thing in my opinion is: Do you really mean it? If you love somebody, those are the sweetest words to tell him or her. Yes, there is true love in Second Life and I have met many people here in relationships that lasts for several years already. On the other hand, I met many people who change their partners almost weekly. Saying "I love you" is a decision of the heart not of the mind. If you really feel it, say it and don't try to rationalize about it. So when you feel like saying it, that's the right time, neither too soon nor too late.
