  1. Oh its in an Obvious place, well kinda, We mermaids hide our treasure.
  2. Found it! I should of paid closer attention when going there, but it was a place I dont often look because it is not a normal place I would of, once I saw the shiny flicker I KNEW where to go.
  3. Of course we would be delighted to have you.
  4. I just wanted to Start a post about the Bellisserian Merpeople Group. The Group was originally founded by Persephone Kore (leriadraven) Who still is the founder and group Leader. When I joined Bellisseria Merpeople I did so out of just wanting and needing some thing to do. Moving to Bellisseria I felt more community spirit than I had in a long time, still there was some thing missing in my Second Life. So joining the group was a bit out of desperation for some thing to do, and a feeling of belonging. I had "done" mermaid stuff in the past in my SL but never was nothing more than some thing to occasionally pass the time and amuse myself. Later I had gone and tried to find Mermaids and places I had discovered in the past, only to find out like most things in SL it no longer existed. I thought that Mermaids had been a passing fad for others too, and that the community had died out, just to become some thing else in the obscure pages of SL history. WAS I WRONG, after joining the group I found a thriving population of Mermaids and Mermen in Second Life. One of the other main groups SWF the Safe Waters Foundation was welcoming and helped introduce me more into the community. Of course it helped to keep my Mer identity around Bellisseria, going to pickle parties, and in general swimming in and around the waters of Belli. I now feel that missing "hole" in my SL has been filled. I've met some awesome fun loving people that I feel I can call family. Unfortunately Persephone like the rest of us on occasion has to deal with Real Life situations and it has kept her away. I never intended to be a leader of the group, but Mahogany Dejavu and I believe in the Mer community and in our own little ways tried to help keep the community growing and alive. She and I have talked with the DJ Pirates at Bellisseria and will be having some Mer Sponsored events. On occasion around SL you may even find us in a group at a store or shopping event together, and I am not just talking Mahogany and I, I mean us and several of our sister or brother mers . We welcome full time Mers, part time Merpeople, to include any other aquatic life as well. We take part in the boat parades, and are willing to assist in whatever capacity we are able in a water rescue situation, because we can respond quickly, already being in the water and being able to swim to the victims in need or assistance much more quickly than any rescue boat is able to get their and provide rescue operations. I hope my Mer family will find this post and add to it. Thank you
  5. 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.
  6. Does anyone know if there any Language Learning classes anywhere in SL ? I am primarily looking for a teacher / tutor / Class on French Please.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. From that photo I can see my Dot on the MAP
  13. 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
