  1. (1) Many people come to a wide-open virtual world holding tightly to the prejudices of RL (2) Learn to ignore #1 and have fun anyway 🙂
  2. Amanda Keen So my Original acquired a Stalker whom no Avatar or Linden could defeat. So I made an alt Some say ....”an alt with a stripper name: Amanda Keen” Luckily my partner also made an alt. She’s kinda hawt... I take some pics for Flickr..... I do some club work..... and I’m on these forums a bit too.... ..and so it continues...... Next?
  3. I’m happy that SL brings you joy, no matter what kind of avatar you choose 🙂 The exercise of Imagination begins when people realize that their soul is not limited by whatever situation they were born into. We only get a finite amount of time in this life; live it as makes you happy.
  4. A courteous squatter would have someone following them with a pooper scooper after they squat.....
  5. I’ve heard complaints from Cam-shoppers like this. They are shopping long-distance at events using their camera and then they try to purchase, they don’t have the right toggles set to enable selection/payment.
  6. Basically the matrix, only not evil. If I could stay there with my partner 100% of the time, as a prospective retiree; I’d be there.
  7. Y’all are a very special couple 🙂 I’m so happy for you!
  8. So if I was single and dating, my dating pool would be exclusively female avatars. If I had a GOOD Girlfriend and found out she was a guy IRL.... who was consciously making an effort to upgrade his gender in SL.... I believe in rewarding good behavior 🙂 Obviously he is a smart guy 🙂
  9. I’d grab my partner and head to our “lifeboat” MMORPG until we can find a SL-ish replacement....... https://media0.giphy.com/media/XGUZYLi23sJaHzuTfW/giphy.gif?cid=8fc3c8975d48fd656a643951635d3a88&rid=giphy.gif
  10. Being buried alive would be it.... https://media1.giphy.com/media/ieJhqWk0LcNqbE2dTj/giphy.gif?cid=8fc3c8975d48fde64a33566f55d0f69d&rid=giphy.gif
  11. I’m an oddity; since 2005 I have been with my SL partner and both of us have happily left that relationship to SL. It works for us, (for 14 years) which is all that matters....
  12. I have a RL job that entails some long hours, so I use FB and Discord to keep up with stuffs in SL. UnfortunatelyI work LATE nights so when I ping people on my breaks or respond to their social posts - about half they time they’re asleep at the keyboard....
  13. When we get to the Bento Sex rollercoaster, sign me up!
  14. I wonder if saying “I’m a Troll” on a forum is an advanced form of Trollage?
  15. Maybe the key to retaining Residents is to be better able to direct them to content they *want* and ensure that they *understand* that the content providers are....other residents....and not SL itself ? Operating in an open “Environment” is a different ( or at least a more intense ) social skill-set than that used for a closed-loop “Game”. Perhaps if prospective Residents relate to that concept, they will be better prepared to “go find your own fun” as opposed to wandering and being disappointed by the lack of a set progression path.
  16. I can muster up some sympathy for the O.P. I ‘ve had a second career in the Business world with an overlap into non-profits. Attention to Detail is “God” when rolling out a new process - but so is simplicity and understandability. Understanding the 2nd and 3rd order impacts of your actions comes in right behind them. I love SL, but in all honesty - they have some issues with how they implement and roll-out new things. Communications seem un-coordinated at times and it almost *takes* a full-on firestorm to get them to provide clarity. This can be off-putting to many for a variety of reasons. But as I said, I love SL - I can work through the “word soup” for something I care about.
  17. Rhiannon, its awesome that you’re looking! I was going to suggest the Center, but was massively behind on my post 🙂 We have so many people looking for conflict these days, someone looking for harmony is just wonderful. Feel free to IM me up if I can help in anyway; I’m looking too.

  19. I’m glad to be aware of it then 🙂 Redundant Databases are simply redundant opportunities to “lose” data to Very Mean People. If this information “chopped” to a spun-off subsidiary, I’d be interested to know if other copies held by LL were eliminated. Knowing their Data Security Plan going forward would also be a confidence builder. I’ve had the lovely experience of having to wrangle LL, my Bank and PayPal based on an error made by LL that caused me some small financial issues. It was resolved 3 months later, but really never left me with a great confidence in their safeguarding processes.
  20. Y’know, like many others I am kind of on-edge about SL in general. LL has given me good reason to doubt their commitment to User privacy or to deal effectively with issues like stalking. Why does “we’re creating a whole new administrative bureaucracy that will have your personal information” *not* fill me with joy? Having my details in a whole NEW database that can be breached or mishandled is probably part of it. As many users are outside the USA and many inside the US use financial services like Privacy.com to keep their personal details PRIVATE - this could lead to a dip in LL’s revenue stream. Yes, its regulation-driven. I still don’t like it much.
