  1. Our world, our imagination. SL is what its residents create. That men do not spend as much money on clothing factors into what people create to sell. That is not unfriendly to men, that is maximizing sales.
  2. As someone whose professional career was in social and economic justice organizing, I am always frustrated by the nonsense promulgated by folks who judge nonprofits by how they spend rather than what they accomplish. People say nonprofits need to be run like a business, but nonprofits could never be so profligate. For-profits are praised for spending on marketing while nonprofits are castigated, but without marketing, they cannot grow and they will fail. Dan Pallotta has a tremendous Ted Talk on Social Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship. Here's the thing. People are taught shame about
  3. Absolutely, and a few charities already do that and they could continue to do that. For example, Relay for Life and Doctors Without Borders have charity avatars and include information on the Second Life fundraiser on their organizational web site. However, some charities don't understand the potential of SL or how easy it would be for them to have a charity avatar. That's the more common occurence and one that I think would be addressed by having a LL Charity Avatar Program. As to the fees for LL, since they are the Lab, they don't need to pay themselves Lindex fees. However, they wlll have
  4. Charities in Second Life do so much good, raising thousands for cancer research, relief work, animal protection and dozens if not hundreds of worthy causes. In spite of all the good work that is done by many successful fundraising events, a few unworthy people have exploited the charitable impulse to raise money under false pretenses and pocket the funds, even going so far as to forge false receipts When this happens, even the legitimate efforts are damaged as people become suspicious and ware of participating. Linden Lab could easily address this ongoing problem with a Charity Avatar Progra
  5. Please do not adopt face lights. They are annoying and unnecessary if you use windlight properly. There are several tutorials that cna help you. Strawberry Singh has a tutorial linking you to several WL settings you can download and install. Here's a directory of tutorials that can help. When windlight came in 2008, that was the end of the need for face lights. Few people use them anymore and they are generally perceived as rude and impolite to wear in public.
  6. I am no purist. I think that there are good things made with templates and good designers who learned the ropes with templates. The only thing I am not enthused about is the unimaginative and boring use of templates to simply add a recolor or a flat texture without bringing some inspiration and imagination to it. But you know, they don't hurt me because they look flat and uninteresting and don't tempt away my lindens.
  7. I am sure I saw you at the public library last Friday. Was that you?
  8. Love the water effect on the top photo! Really fabulous!
  9. My pet peeve is when designers do not have their store landmark in their picks. I want to be able to teleport from there. What are other things that store owners should put in their profiles?
  10. I always think that there are stores out there in the vast regions of Second Life where great imagination and incredible talent are married and producing little darlings what we would all love, if we only knew where they were. Do you know of any new and/or small stores that you think would get more attention, if only people knew they existed? Do you have some favorites that you seldom, if ever, see blogged or highlighted? Why not share them and help them get some of the attention you think they should have.
