  1. Different people are going to have different definitions of what "married" means in SL. In a non-roleplaying situation I would not consider anything less then checking the partnered box as being married. Just as in RL all committed relationships are not marriages. The original poster will need to have each respondent/interviewee clarify what kind of committed relationship, the reasons for the relationship, the local customs (for roleplay situations), what changed or why they broke up and how they broke up. There is probably a lot more that needs to be clarified but assuming that everyone
  2. Maybe the topic of the thread should read "Dissolution of SL Partnership" to keep everyone happy. Or maybe "Questions for those in SL formerly formally partnered". In any case just as there are different reasons for marriage in RL and different kinds of marriages (most change over time) there will be different reasons for partnerships in SL and different kinds that may change over time also. The reasons for a divorce in RL and for a dissolution of the SL partnership may be the same depending on the reasons for the relationship to begin with. Now in RL divorce can be amiable and easy or c
  3. Can you edit the machete? If so do that to position it for your avi. I bought a gown one time that came with a necklace. Wearing the necklace placed it floating above my avi's left shoulder. I had to edit the position then every time I wore it it was positioned correctly.
  4. I although I don't post to this thread I almost always check it out. I especially like the animal pix. I saw a sign on a car this morning I thought you all might appreciate: "Wag More Bark Less"

He made an awesome Dracula...:matte-motes-sunglasses-3: (I know it's not a horror film, but needs to be seen) ... sorry..forgot one more....Leslie Neilsen ... Yes, loved George Hamilton as Dracula (also liked him as the Gay Blade). Haven't seen the Leslie Neilsen one, yet. Looks like fun.
  6. Dracula. Favorite versions - Bela Lugosi and Gary Oldman.
  7. Do you mean someone who is divorced in RL and is on SL? Or do you mean someone who is "divorced" from an SL relationship? If the latter then what Amethyst said.
  8. I'm not sure if this is what you are asking for but to break out of an animation - "stand" if that is an option or using the LL viewer under the "ME" menu, movement, stop (or something like that).
  9. I tried a couple of mesh boob demos but wasn't satisfied with them. Are there any mesh breasts that allow adjusting the nipples? They were too large on the ones I tried.
  10. LMFAO gets imitated a lot. This video shows the original dance styles of all 5 of the races in Guild Wars 2. The dance done by humans is based on the shufle and shown first.
  11. I thought of DM when KarenM posted about Rock&Bullwinkle. I always liked Danger Mouse and also Count Duckula (about a vegetarian vampire duck). Here is the intro for Count Duckula: ETA: I always liked this quote by Count Duckula: "Gold, gold! It may not buy happiness, but it can buy you a better state of misery, that's for sure!"

Firestorm makes the settings easily accessible in its "Cameratools" control panel, which pops up when you click the "Phototools camera" button. The copy editor was asleep when those names came through. Thanks for the tip. I will try it out next time I take some screenshots.

The video didn't do anything for me but the ad beforehand about the Beatles was wonderful I'm sure there is an audience to be found for Miguelito, somewhere. Now I'm really bummed. I got Katie Perry in the ad beforehand. :matte-motes-frown: ...and then I watched less than 10 seconds of the video.
  14. Keli Kyrie wrote: ... These are the same hands and Slink Feet... the only thing that has changed is the perspective. I suspected that was the issue. I've gotten pictures of my avi when she was in one of the animations with her hands extended where they look like flesh-colored baseball catcher's mitts. The perspective used by the SL camera is more like a wide-angled lens. In RL portraits I prefer using a slight telephoto - 105 or 115, not that I ever did much of that. I preferred scenic landscapes.
  15. Adahre wrote: Those feet looks huge on you in my opinion, look at the proportions of the feet to the legs.Foot looks almost half of your legs (and your hands are too small) That is exactly what I thought when I first saw the picture too. I immediately thought of someone I used to know who was very short and petite, but who had such huge feet. In this case the angle of the screenshot could be distorting the size of her feet and hands though.
  16. I also came across this one that explains Lost in 3 minutes using postit notes.
  17. I was looking for another video for this thread when I came across this one:
  18. I like several of those you mentioned. Ones I'm not familiar with I'll be checking them out. I also like LeLutka hairstyles.
  19. Interesting article. I-messages are also encouraged in Parent Effectiveness Training, which can be used for all kinds of conflicts not just between parent and child. It is a way to take ownership of a problem so the person whose behavior you are trying to modify doesn't get defensive.
  20. Are you trying to view avatars on their own property when they have their security/privacy set to not allow that?

The line ends with two examples: "party games; word games." The one that comes to mind for me is "mind games", ever since I read "Games People Play". This definition doesn't apply since it's talking about a sub-set of activities ... I'm not applying it to a subset of activities but to SL itself. Is SL a pastime? Yes, so meets the definition. Is it an activity that provides entertainment and amusement? Yes, so meets the definiti

OK, so SL is a game. What I want to know is what game are you playing by starting this thread? You know this topic divides players into two camps, with fanatics on both
  25. This reminds me of a psychology experiment conducted using volunteer college students some time ago. There were 2 groups - one got paid nothing (the control) and in the second group each got paid a dollar. The researchers noticed there was a small statistical difference in the responses. Those that got paid tended to give responses that they thought the researchers wanted. They felt obligated because of the money they received, no matter that is was so little. I would think that any valid researcher would be aware of the effect. Edited for spelling and to point out grammar error/typo
