  1. I have no idea what the hell you're talking about but it's not reality. I'm entitled to respond to things said directly to me whether you changed your mind afterwards. People are entitled to reply to things directed at them. And I've had enough of your silly "gotcha-ism". It's a discussion not a competition and frankly you come across as highly aggressive, condescending and simply looking for a fight. You're not good at this human interaction thing are you?
  2. I've no idea what you're talking about, again, still. I formed my impression of your tone and about you from reading your words that you typed and not because of some third party's comments about your comments. I don't know how to make it simpler.
  3. I can form my own opinions just fine and did so before I read the post you seem to think influenced me.
  4. My first skin was alady too! I think I still have it in my inventory. I got stuck in the tutorial when I couldn't achieve the flying part. I logged out hoping I'd be somewhere else when I logged back in. No such luck. I tried to find pages on the web to see if there was any help for it and I was super fortunate to end up on the very pink blog of a mermaid hair-merchant; I found a SLURL to Free Dove and was pleasantly surprised when I clicked it and it opened my viewer and when I logged in I saw I had escaped the stupid tutorial.
  5. "No doubt that soon after that many may want to dress their avatar better, and many may not. But it's not first thing, imo. Getting around and talking must be the first things, " I don't understand what you're saying here with absolutes like "getting around and talking must be the first things" if you're not excluding the possibility that any people at all have a desire to change their avatars before they have finished being engaged with the novelty of moving around and chatting to people. . If that's not what you mean, then I don't know what you mean. Because it's not like it's so hard
  6. You're factually wrong. You've saying that's not what new users do and announced that you don't accept that new users do this. But I did that when I was new so provably it's not something that doesn't happen. It happened at least once already, case closed. I have no idea why you think pointing to yourself changes that. No number of users who do not do this cancels out or disappears a single user who does. You can't prove no swans are white by holding up a single black swan or any number of black swans but all it takes to prove "there are no white swans" is factually wrong is a single w

I think I'm right in saying that the most suggested reason for steepness is the desire to make the avatar look good, and it's multiple females who have cited it in this thread. In the other thread, a number of females described why they came to SL, and that they pretty much already knew that they wanted to prettify their avatars. So, to sum this post, it appears that many female avatars have a steep(ish) initial learning curve because t
  8. You're factually wrong and I can say this from personal experience because (confession time) I was once a new user, and I'm telling you explicitly that this is how it was with me. That's a fact and I personally don't think facts should give way for unverified opinions no matter how fine the naval the opiner was gazing at when they formed their opinion. Many people don't want to talk or chat or go places and be seen, much less go dancing, while they are wearing a clunky newbie avatar that screams "I'm a noob everyone!" Many people want to immediately change their avatars because they have no
  9. Just to be clear on the one hand - it makes no sense to you that the things you consider the necessities are hard to learn and you can't fathom that someone has trouble pushing the arrow key or typing on their keyboard. It's easy to agree with that position. On the other hand - you're sure this is the set of things people mean when they say "SL has a steep learning curve", but if both these things are true then that means these people are smart enough to easily create an account, find the arrow keys, type on their keyboard but too stupid to realize how easy they found it. I find that im
  10. New users commonly want to dress their avatar up immediately and start buying with the assumption that it's relatively simple - see shoes - like shoes, pay for shoes, wear shoes, whereas SLINK compatable shoes are everywhere and beat the pants off classic avatar feet or shoes that come with feet in them. So in many cases users who are a few days old want these feet before they even know they exist because they already bought shoes for them having had no idea how complicated it was. When they find out they need these add on feet to wear their add on shoes, many specifically comment about what
  11. I honestly don't see anything dangerous about it. If there are these huge events out there that don't have fees published anywhere and which none of the merchants will talk about the fees they pay to participate in, like it's some state secret, it really makes no difference to anyone what speculation is made as to why it's private. I don't personally know of any events like that but clearly if they're as huge and common and therefore obviously successful as the person I was responding to proposes, everyone involved is happy with the super secret hush hush arrangement and the rest of
  12. Here is an application form to one of these big commercial events I guess some events don't need more merchants and are over booked in which case they've probably no good reason to share information about their business model with events that do have room to accept applicants. Also, it's very possible they're charging differrent merchants different rates for various reasons and it might be prudent to be discrete about that. It makes a lot of sense that if X merchant always increases attendence at an event that you'd encourage them to participate and consider any discount you give to get
  13. Isn't it the advert title that needs to be changed? Did you change the title from the marketplace in your browser or did you change the folder name in the merchant listings in your viewer? I think you need to do the first thing but if that didn't work then try the second one instead.
  14. In years of working with content licensed for redistribution I have encountered a clause in the license forbidding copy permission for the next owner exactly 0 times. I'm not saying it doesn't happen but it certainly isn't common.
  15. I would add,also try changing sizes. For instance if you're a small when wearing a certain mesh with your classic body, you may need a medium with a mesh body. I find that is often the case with my SLINK body.
