  1. It is astonishing that LL has resisted for so long a persistent groundswell of demand from residents for more detailed classification of "Friends"and "Partners". The successful monetisation of web properties (Facebook, Amazon, Google etc) depends on personalisation for marketing and advertising purposes, a profit opportunity doggedly ignored by Philip and Mark, and Rod seems determined in his single-mindedness to continue this disregard of the opportunity to exploit SL's customer base - with their own agreement and participation! Heracles [#1] ETA There should be categories for both gods and demi-gods.
  2. I see someone has got here ahead of me. Heracles [#5]
  3. OK, I am off and running on tasks #2 and #6, and I think I am already a fair way down the track on #3, but I need some help in identifying the Erymanthian Boar of General Discussions. With Longthinker having disappeared (presumably to complete his retranslation of the Bible to his own satisfaction, rather than King James) and the Cut-And-Paste King restricting his activities to the appropriate n00b platforms I am a little at a loss to know where I should direct my golden arrows. Any suggestions? Heracles
  4. I have set myself the task of completing twelve metaphorical labors in SL, ie inworld, here in the forums, and in the feeds, as well as any other public playgrounds that Rod and the boys establish in the coming months. While some of the tasks appear to be easy to associate with LL concepts (the slaying of the Lernaean Hydra, for example, even if might appear an impossible quest) I was hoping that the members of htis forum might be able to give me some assistance in identifying analogous undertakings. In fact, Heracles apparently did have some aid in completing some of his tasks, such as the aforementioned Hydra, so if anyone is interested in the role of Iolaus please feel free to pitch in. If you need a reference then Wikipedia is as good a starting point as anywhere. Here is a brief summary: 1. Slay the Nemean Lion 2. Slay the Lernaean Hydra 3. Capture the Golden Hind of Artemis 4. Capture the Erymanthian Boar 5. Clean the Augean Stables 6. Slay the Stymphalian Birds 7. Capture the Cretan Bull 8. Steal the Mares of Diomedes 9. Obtain the Girdle of Hippolyta 10. Obtain the Cattle of Geryon 11. Steal the Apples of the Hesperides 12. Capture Cerberus. I am not worried about completing them in the original order, and may in fact set about accomplishing several of the tasks simultaneously, in different venues and by different means, perhaps disguising myself so that my efforts are more effectively achieved. Heracles ETA As an example, I might pursue task #9 by seducing in turn he who seduced the Queen of the Forum Amazons.
