  1. SO here is my Vent about People being upset about not getting a Linden Home. Bellisseria is the popular place to be, and to have a home there, but there are other options still in favor for those that have not gotten one yet. I know many of us are disgusted with the way that Mainland in many regions looks, but it starts with one, than another and a few more. Check out your options on mainland start a group where those around you can join and together put your resources to work creating a model that others should strive for. Create your own Roads, neighborhoods / community. I have a homestead that I am seriously considering letting go and look into getting a mainland property. And when I do you can betcha I WILL do what I suggested above. You dont have to be an annoying jerk about it but hold the neighbors accountable for making it look nice.
  2. Does anyone know if there any Language Learning classes anywhere in SL ? I am primarily looking for a teacher / tutor / Class on French Please.
  3. I guess it would matter to me how much "Bang for my Linden buck" would I get? How usable would the addition be. I would like to try to keep the Li down as low as possible to be able to have the most I could get out of it. Being in the original LL homes really taught me how to work to save on Li and get the most out of what I had. So at most I would hesitate at 40 to 50 Li and would not so much at 10 Li or lower. But it could depend on the home "style" too.
  4. What would I do if I were Linden Lab. Well I wouldn’t want to change much that has been done already, I think LL is starting to steer SL into the wind to catch the sails and continue to propel it forward into a prosperous future. With that in mind I would consider my following idea’s and see how viable they are. One I would pull the plug on Sansar or strongly consider it. Why? Because in this thread I’ve seen where most of us think it is a flop, and here is my thought on why it is such. Because those of us who have been in SL for any length of time are used to and want to create our own “experiences”. An experience should be some thing that effects you to make you grow because you have participated in an activity that you had to work at to develop and bring into existence, worked at to make it happen. Sansar removes that by having an “experience” pre planned, pre made all you have to do is put the batteries in push the button and watch it go around with its short lived flashing lights and enticing sounds. In the end there is nothing to connect you and make you feel you have a part in it. I feel that is why Bellisseria has been doing so well. Because the Residents there are making it valuable to them / OUR selves. Not much I think could or can be done about free accounts other than maybe make free accounts more of a trial period? So instead of having a long standing free account after six months you are presented with the option to become a premium member or not. ( yeah I know that would go over well.) So lets leave the free accounts alone, other than restrict them after the six months to general content only. Mainland - what can I say? There is a lot on Mainland that is an eye sore, and where does one start? It would be such a HUGE undertaking to start to try and reign in all of the “possible violations” such things like LOW hanging sky boxes and platforms, annoying sounds and Heavy scripted objects. Some “Road repair” is seriously needed, as a GTFO member I constantly run into low hanging trees in the road, Roads just abruptly ending, uneven road surfaces, vegetation seemingly over growing the road. Don’t get me wrong the main lands have some pretty awesome road ways but they really need some maintenance. Zoning: zoning area’s for specific things like commercial businesses and or content creators stores, residential areas. SIM Boarder Crossing, what more needs to be said about that? Regardless of whether you are walking, flying or sailing SIM Crossings are hazardous some times. I know LL has done a bit for SL pilots, but I think more could be done some how. I could go on and on and I am sure many of you could too. Virtual business, perhaps look into what could be done to promote REAL LIFE business to come back into SL and do business here in SL. Promote and hire people to work a job inworld through perhaps virtual testing of products and idea’s I dunno my last thoughts are to bring more users in under LL guidelines to continue to build and create content for the happy and healthy future of SL. I am glad that LL is honestly starting to show they are listening to OUR voice. In closing Thank you Lindens, Thank you Moles for your dedication and hard work.
  5. Aww, here is a pillow so if you fall on your ass again it wont hurt so badly. I've listened to many frustrated persons in the groups and I mean every group I have has had the topic of the price increase. LL has not increased the price of premium since its inception, and with the new LH Continent I am more than happy to pay the extra for more space, more Li, ROADS and just all around an area / Community that actually LOOKS like a Community. Your Victimhood status is here by null and void. Two USD a month is not going to break me, we will all spend that and or more some time in the next week on stupid purchases for a soda, candy bar, energy drink, HELL even a Staryucks Coffee that you could just stay home and make your own coffee. Here's your sign Sean, you wont be missed.
  6. I had been in my "Old Linden home" almost as long as I've been on SL. There were Community Centers but they were far and few between, and it seemed to me at least all of my neighbors never wanted to be neighborly. Closed windows and doors, Ban lines and security Orbs. TOS violations all around all over the place, no path ways or roads. Any of the so called parks etc never seemed to get further developed. My Old Home was on Bowston I loved the name and the house I had modded within allowed LL limitations. It was a little bit hard to start packing up and leaving and moving to my new Linden Home, But I do love the look and feel of the new SIMs. The community atmosphere cant be beet. I hope that the Moles and LL will continue to work on Bellisseria. Personally I would love to see some kind of "Down Town" perhaps, I know I would like to see a much larger airport instead of the itty bitty air strip, I am an avid SL pilot.
  7. Ok everyone else is showing off, I finally finished the Decor of my home. It is not as fancy as some but wanted to share.
  8. From that photo I can see my Dot on the MAP
  9. Oh Oops sorry about that, Golden Rules of the Pole, Always be kind and friendly even if the customer is a jerk and then some. Treat everyone with respect, no swearing, no gossip, Dont forget to smile. Always thank a customer or customers for their tip, do not just say thank you Mr X for your tip. It is always much more involving and will make the "customer" happy for being acknowledged like. /me Looks down at the tip playfully slipped into her thong, giving the patron a wink and smile. To show her appreciation she kneels down in front of him on the stage taking his shirt collar in her hand and pulls him close for a thank you Kiss on what he thinks is a kiss on the lips, but places it instead on his cheek. giving him back his shirt with a loving pat thanking him for his generous donation. " Eh some thing kinda like that hehe

  11. This guide is My suggestions to help you be a better club dancer, with further guidance and training you can become a successful dancer. Emoting Definition: Emoting is a skill that can be learned, and improved upon that requires creative writing aptitude, and role play. Emoting is an ability to allow a person to express feelings and describe action through role play, to paint a verbal picture of what you want the patrons of the club you work at to experience, by the use of sensual and arousing word play. DO’S AND DONT’S and Emote Guide Your job as a Dancer / Stripper in second life How to's, do's and Don’ts to help surpass all other Dancers in Technique, beating the competition on the Poles and Dance floor, and help you to have a healthy growth in patronage and fan base. Some Top Ten Rules for the Stripper / Dancer Entertainer NEVER EVER WHILE ON THE DANCE POLE SHOULD YOU SET YOUR STATUS "AWAY OR BUSY" If the Dance pole has a random setting where it will change the dance every 30 to 40 seconds or so set it to do so. using the same dance for over an hour is going to bore the patron and cause them to leave to another dancer. Keep their attention, keep your dancing changing just like your emotes. 1. Never Steal another persons Emotes. Emoting is very personal. It is what you have to say to each of your customers or patrons, and should be customized to your personality, and point of view. This is not possible if you use someone else’s Emotes. 2. Never use profanity when on the pole or near a Patron of your club. (Even if you are off the clock.) 3. Never touch your male of female bits unless you are an escort. OR the private parts of your Patrons. (Grab that long hard pole you’re dancing around instead) If your emote entails doing this it is best left to a private instant message emote, to the patron you are emoting to, just keep it tasteful. But do not forget the rest of the club, see number seven. (Nudity is acceptable and allowed on stage if you are, fur, feather, or scale and male keep it sheathed, other males keep it phlaccid.) Non acceptable behavior regarding the above mentioned. No public intercourse, No masturbation, Do not insert objects inside yourself OR others, no cumming. Most clubs provide private rooms for escorting and pixel sex. 4. Never Disrespect a Patron or Client (Tipping or Not) 5. Never Disrespect another co-worker 6. Never forget to thank the Patron/Customer for the tip (no matter how small or large) 7. Never go quiet for more than a span of three minutes while on the Pole. Emote, talk, flirt, reply or even comment on other conversations. BUT DO NOT GO QUIET. 8. Never go AFK (Away From Keyboard - OR - Busy) While on the pole. Yes Real Life comes first but if you have to, go graciously, excuse yourself and step away, excusing yourself from the patrons and your co workers. If a dressing room or employee lounge is available go their and log or leave if you need to. If it is essential that you have to go A F K pleases step away from the pole, log out of the tip jar and go sit on one of the lounges, not in the middle of the dance floor. Just say that you need a short break. 9. Never get personal while on the pole. Keep personal chat to a minimum Respond to persistent patrons who want to hold full fledged conversation. If you can keep it to a one or two word response. DONT BE RUDE. Just be nice and keep your focus on what you are doing (your job) 10. NEVER FORGET WHY YOU ARE A STRIPPER, DANCER. ENTERTAINER. You are their on that silver pole to provoke emotion. To help paint that all important atmosphere of your club, and to provoke a response from the Patrons or Client visiting our club. IF they remember you and come back you did your job and succeeded. EMOTING You do not have to be Shakespeare to write good emotes. Try and keep to the Golden rules of the Pole when you’re creating them, and you'll find yourself getting better and better at it. Emoting is not only a description of what you are doing, and how you are feeling but is a form or Role play, make the patron want to read what you are saying and want to read more. 1. Try and use 30 words or less for emoting on the pole, Or just one good paragraph of approximately three to four sentences. Try to get the patron or patron’s attention. Don’t punish them by making them scroll through a book or short novel. Some patrons will just ignore it, get annoyed or worse yet leave the club. Book or Novel emotes are like Spam in the normal chat window. For more personal emoting use personal instant messaging if you want to write a longer emote. 2. For every noun or verb you use, try using at least two adjectives to go along with your emote to add color personalization and sensuality. 3. Don’t be afraid of being descriptive, just don't overdo it. Just keep it well balanced and clear. 4. If you’re not a natural flirt, use emotes to your advantage. But create new emotes now and then so that our regular patrons don’t get thanked the same way every time. 5. NEVER use the same emote twice in the span of two hours. 40 to 60 emotes will support you quiet easily. 6. Balance emoting with open chatting. Emote and talk. Let our patron’s know you're a real being. Not a programmed robot. Try to keep emoting between you and another dancer to a bare minimum you are their for the patron not each other. 7. Try not misspelling words, it appears crass and makes you look bad. Worst of all, it can make you seem unintelligent, or lazy. 8. When emoting consider the three ways to Emote. _____________________________________ ACTIVE EMOTING The following are examples of emotes, and not necessarily to be followed to the letter. (Your name here) positions his/her hips forward and determines his/her steps carefully in *patrons* direction, shoulders rotating as the scent of *patrons* perfume/cologne permeates the air encapsulating his/her senses. This is an example of exacting behavior towards a patron. The patron has been named and will see it in the chat window. He or She will be flattered, you may not be tipped, or get a response either. But that is okay, you’ve provoked Him/or her and done your job. If a patron is with a partner keep your active flirts to a minimum. And if possible maybe even involve the partner CAREFULLY, always allow for permissions. PASSIVE EMOTING (your name here) swings around, leaning into the pole back arched against the cold steel pole, strong hips swaying erotically, pumping, rotating showing off His/her midsection as the music thuds louder and louder in His/her ears. A simple descriptive scene, not involving a patron, helping to paint a word picture of what the patrons may want to see their at the club. THANK EMOTING (Your name here) Struts out towards *patron* His/her lean slender torso shifting and grinding to the loud music. He/she slides His/her hands or paws up along *patrons* thighs before letting go whispers "Thank you for your awesome tip sexy." Thanking a patron for a tip is the reason you're their. It is the reason they are there. And it is the reason your employer has you their. It is the primary reason you are here. So if you are tipped thank them quickly and thank them personally. Do not hedge on your efforts to thank someone enough for the tip. Respond to their compliment to you with a smile and action. It is best to thank them quickly, then work on your emote for a full thank you that describes your actions, feelings etc. Other Helpful Tips Pre made Emotes Note Card emoting by copy and pasting to the chat window from a pre made note card, this maybe a good way for you to start out but not a good habit to get into. Emote from the moment, how you feel and what you are doing, and what is happening in the club at that moment. You will be that much more personal and original. Yes you are being put on the spot; you are always in the spot light on the poles. You are the reason club customers / patrons return, they are your fans, they come to see you to entertain them and make them feel happy. Be sexy or sensual, most important be friendly. You can role play, you can emote, YOU ARE A PROFESSIONAL, that is why the club you want to work for will hire you.
  12. No it is not your Attitude, nor is it cultural, It is that you are confident in what you want and who you are. I have wondered the same thing many times and it always comes down to the fact I am a mature women who knows what she wants, and is sick and tired of playing childish games. Your Father is right about standing up for yourself it is called self respect and dignity. Some thing my parents instilled in me when I was younger. When Men or friends can step up to your level they are worth keeping.
