  1. first time i've had a chance to post here in the last few weeks, i need to catch up on like 30 pages of likes now lol. anyway, i found these awesome earrings, i mean, like, the coolest earrings ever for a nerd mom like me, so i had to do the right thing, and dress outrageouly just to match them 😜 and then i found a diner with this movie poster which i found totally sarcastically appropriate all this for a pair of earrings lol
  2. IF Tilia impacts ONLY members with USD in their account, or who process credits from SL into their RL accounts, and IF those of us who are not impacted by Tilia in any way refuse to accept the Tilia terms come August 1rst, then will we be prevented from accessing SL ? because the way i see it, it has nothing to do with me, and it never will either, and as you mentioned, it is only a subsidiary of LL / SL, therefore should not impact SL directly to prevent logging in and enjoying my friends and my second life here. it would be a direct conflict of interest by denying access to anyone refusing the terms of Tilia, unless they use the service itse;f directly. i am telling you now, i am planning not to accept the terms of Tilia on August 1rst, so i am hoping my second life will not be impacted by this. i look forward to your answer, LL thank you
  3. i'm a bit confused about this still. after reading some of the FAQ's ( https://community.secondlife.com/forums/topic/439384-tilia-takes-over/page/7/?tab=comments#comment-1929793 ) i am confused still about the Tilia Terms thingy. this is me. so i will never use this Tilia thing, nor will it apply to me by any means, but why do i need to still accept Tilia's terms, even though i will never use it, not will this ever apply to me at all ? is this basically saying that we're being forced to accept something even though it is not applicable, in order to keep using SL at all ? because if so, i can see people leaving as a result of this, and this would hurt SL in the long run. also, by being forced to accept these new terms means an automatically created Tilia account for each SL member. 1. how do we know, that we will not be charged any fees after 12 months of inactivity, especially since, like myself, i won't ever use this, meaning my Tilia account will be inactive for that duration ? 2. i don't think being forced to accept terms for something that some of us will ever use, and then also being forced to accept this new Tilia account creation is right. this Tilia account should be applicable to anyone who does process credits, as you mention in the blog post, and not to others who will have nothing to do with this since we only buy lindens or pay land tiers so why force everyone and more importantly, do we have an option to opt out of Tilia ?

  5. my friend and I spending quality time
  6. absolutely breathtaking picture ! i honestly think this is the best picture you've taken to date, in my opinion. and i love that outfit where was this taken, if i may ask ?
  7. ok, so i was inspired by Rhonda's Muppets picture, so i did something, well tried anyway, to do something i have always wanted to do.. and then when it was done, i realized my eyes were closed and i was too lazy to redo it all lol. anyway, this may not be perfect but it was fun to do
  8. enjoying a little "snack" on my walk along the beach front
  9. seeing this, i just had to, and sorry if some of you get this stuck in your heads as a result 😜 It's time to play the music, It's time to light the lights, It's time to meet the Muppets ... on the Muppet Show tonight ! It's time to put on make up, It's time to dress up right, It's time to raise the curtain ... on the Muppet Show tonight !
  10. they honestly should leave the basic perks untouched, there is no need at all to punish basic members in this way. as for the premium perks, they really should rethink this completely. people do not need 80 groups, but, with that said, i - would- find a way to find the money to afford a premium member if they: 1. get rid of the perk that give preferential treatment by allowing premiums to get into full sims. as i said before, it is discrimination, not a perk. 2. change the weekly stipend to 1500L a week from 300L a week 3. give premium members a 30m x 30m lot with a choice of houses on mainland with 1000 allotted prims 4. 60 groups and 60 attachment points 5. 10% discount to any purchases made inworld and on marketplace (like many other places do.. look at playstation plus for example) 6. reduce land costs by 20% compared to now yes i know i am dreaming big, but when you look at this, it's way better that what they're offering now, and this would be the only way i would even consider getting "enticed" to buy premium
  11. I understand the need to create "perks" to entice basic member to upgrade to premium, or new member to join as premium members, but there is a different between "enticing" and "forcing", and right now, this crosses that line for me. it was bad enough to add a perk that "discriminates" by allowing premium members to get into full sims ahead of basic members (seriously, it's the same thing as like gong to a popular club or restaurant "hey you have money, come on in" and "oh you don't have money, go to the back of the line and wait"). but now, they're reducing the basic perks and really upping the premium ones, which makes absolutely no sense. and it is such a large differential now, it also goes beyond acceptable limits. if they think they're going to "entice me" though, they are wrong,. it's having the opposite effect, as i refuse to buy premium now. and from the chat in some groups i shared the link on the changes, it seems i am not the only one either... Good work LL, on alienating your customers..
  12. Thank you And as to your question, I honestly have no idea yet what kind of pictures I want to take. I mean, I've always been the type of person that, once I start analyzing things too much and complicating them, I stop seeing the value of why I am doing and enjoying it. So I like to look at things in a simple way. With that said, of course, I also accept the inner child in me and when I see a new "toy" to play with, I simply "play" and have fun, trying new things. especially when it comes to things graphics and computer related. So I did play a bit with the windlight, on these pictures, using Fairie Blue as the setting, and then adjusting the slider until i felt i had a good enough light to highlight the scene without taking out the background entirely, but just enough to make it look important. It took me over a week to plan this, finding the right poses, the right setting, and then finding the right spot in the setting, the outfit, the effects. It's like working on a puzzle until all the pieces fit in nicely. I never really knew how much effort and planning went into these so I have a much better appreciation now of everyone's pictures (not to say i didn't appreciate them before, as i did very much so lol) because of that experience. If anything, it made me love them even more than before I also want to explore this a bit further, as I explained to Roxy after I was done, i thought about maybe using the picture to create a "comic book page" feel to it, or even edit things a bit to create a "comic book" type cover in a photo editing tool. I'm undecided on that yet though lol All I really want to do is continue to be inspired by everyone here, and then show my appreciation by sharing the pictures I am inspired to create from the effort everyone puts into their, and just have fun at the same time making them
  13. I wanted to try something fun for my second attempt, so I asked my friend Roxy Couturier to help me out. She gracefully accepted ! Some of the pictures turned out much better than I expected. I ended up taking 6 shots, and at first, debated only sharing the better ones, but after some thought, I figured I'd share all 6, and get opinions on them all. I tried to go after several angles, some turned out well and some not so well. but the picture of Roxy turned out rather well.. i just love those eyes Anyway, I hope you all enjoy these as much as i did taking them (I'll post them all in separate post later, since I can only upload so many pictures at one time)
