  1. Same here. I believe the technical term is bass ackwards.

Pull up your big girl panties don a dress,wig and some makeup. I'm sure they will let you join them. It was more 'Carpe Diem'. No disrespect intended Raul. None taken. Just a bit of light hearted ribbing on my part.

There would actually have to be a process to question first. But I understand what you meant. Awaiting the final count down 4....3.....2.....1
  5. According to the powers that be (the Lindens). This forum was going to be moderated 24 / 7 by professional moderators. Did you all fall asleep on the job ? It's been on here for many hours now unchecked. I'm watching the spammers go from resident to honored resident. Are we waiting until they become full fledged members first ? You told us there would be no gaming of the ranking system. Looks like the spammers don't agree.

  7. Congratulations.........It's about time and well deserved too.

Which most of already know that JIRA was one of the key factors in making the Lindens aware of this problem with Redzone. It's one of the few ways to directly contact them about any problems when they arise in Second Life. Watching is not the same thing as voting and does nothing more than to tick residents off by spamming their email inboxes. Don't you think that the multitude of RZ-related threads in the old GD had something to do with LL noticing an 'issue'? Sheesh, one could not miss all of those threads. Like spam, they were. I did say one of the key factors. To answer your question, at that time it wasn't clear that any Linden other than Torley even looked at the GD forum at all. But we do know they directly handle all JIRA issues.

  10. This was a post made by Sigmund Leominster taken from the SLO forum. I want to thank him for taking the time to stop by there and he explained a few things about the article he wrote about HippieStock in the Alphaville Herald. Sorry to be late to the party but I wasn't aware of this discussion until a few minutes ago. Real life has been a little busy so I haven't been monitoring SL. Well, what a palaver! I never imagined that a few words in the "Herald" could stir up such a proverbial hornet's nest. Nor did I suspect that an individual would want to attack me personally with so much venom that it actually proves the point I was trying to make in the piece; namely that we are all prone to behave as individuals "who can one week be spitting venom and bringing down curses on fellow human beings but the next enjoying a pixilated love-in." Although I quoted some folks - and I thank them for it - I also failed to quote others. To a certain extent, I was wary of quoting anyone because one of the things Hippie had told me early on was that this was a "community event" and as such, I wanted to avoid singling people out. Clearly it sounds as if Suspiria played a vital role in the event along with other people who I may not have mentioned. So as to any claim that I in some way censored mention of Suspiria, I have to say that nothing could be further from the truth. My not mentioning her was no more significant than my not mentioning any other folks who were part of the community and who helped make the event what it was. I am relatively new to the "Forum" community and quite frankly don't know who is who. To me, Suspiria is just another person who posts comments and if she is someone special who I am supposed to "know" about, sadly I don't! The article was not supposed to be about personalities but it was a vehicle for talking about the dual personalities we all can be in relation to our RL and virtual personas. It doesn't take an analyst to recognize that the moods and attitudes of some people in the virtual sphere (and I include forums and blogs in this, not just virtual words) can be very much at odds with their "real" selves. For those who are interested, a new book by Elias Aboujaode called "Virtually You" talks a lot more about this duality - something that clearly I didn't get across to some folks in my short piece. I don't want to prolong the discussion but thought I should at least offer some truth in regard to my motivation and perspective - and I am ultimately the only one who can do that! There was no plot to ignore Suspiria and I am sorry she feels so bad about that. All I can say is that others were similarly unmentioned and they, too, were not the victim of some conspiracy. And the comment that "...the two insults that he referenced from the forum were not just coincedentally insults that were hurled at Suspiria" is also wrong - it was, indeed, coincidence! I actually picked those because they seemed to be hyperbolic enough to represent a verbal extreme. NOT because they were aimed at someone in particular. Given a topic, a time limit, and a word limit, anyone who is writing anything is faced with the challenge of not only deciding what to say, but also what NOT to say. Sometimes - and this is a good example - the "what not to say" gets heard by some as if it were a "hidden message." However, there has been a lot of reading-between-the-lines of my article that has resulted in some speculative suppositions about my intentions. And assuming that I am in some way attacking Suspiria because I didn't mention here is bordering on paranoia. I didn't mention Prok but somehow she also appeared to "know" what I was thinking! You are, of course, free to assume I am simply lying and that there is some conspiracy going on; that I wilfully omitted Suspiria for some wicked reason - but as I said, in truth, I honestly don't know her enough to even imagine why I might do that! You're also free to dislike my writing style, my thesis, heck, even my avatar - and I can't do much about that. However, all I do ask is that you at least consider that I might be telling the truth and that I have nothing against anyone who was not mentioned in my article, and that the purpose of the piece was to show how it IS possible for people to actually care about their fellow humans and engage in a community activity, regardless of all the other times when they have been less than charitable. Like many of us, I am tragically cynical and given to thinking the worst of people. But Hippiestock was a brief flicker of happiness in a jaded world Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
  11. Just dropping by to say Hello. By the way, can they add some decent smilies.
  12. Thank You Lexie ! This goes a long way in showing that LL does listen to it's residents wants and desires.
  13. Dancing Days are here again ! :smileyvery-happy: Thank You Lindens for Listening. It shows us you do care about us residents.
  14. The new SL forum is like the V2 viewer equivalent of forum software. It works ok, but it isn't quite right.Oh, and like the V2 viewer they took the useful stuff out of it like the GD forum. And thanks for starting everyone off evenly in the rankings too. It's refreshing to see the chosen few again, having the abilities to do normal things most forums allow new members to do. It's nice not being able to post video when everyone could on the Jive software. Thanks again for hiring full time moderators too. Didn't you think it was prudent to do so on the last forum ?
  15. This is deja vu. They did the same thing before when they changed over to the Jive software. Those that don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it .
  16. The whole idea of having a GD forum is to keep the other boards on topic. Those are meant to be informative on a specific subject. Also by having a GD board would lighten the moderators work load in moving or deleting off topic threads and posts. But hey it's LL sandbox their rules. They will figure it out after a while, usually only takes them 6 to 12 months or so, sometimes longer.
  17. Yup, this all will take a little getting used to I suppose.
