  1. I don't remember what I put in my first life tab. Probably some quotes I've always liked (about as RL as someone will get from me in a profile).
  2. AS A guy I find the Maitreya avatar looks best for women. I've helped my wife with hers. She has the Maitreya Lara body and a bento head (don't remember who made her head). Maitreya is actually quite easy to work with as far as skin tone and what not. I think that may be one reason it's so popular.
  3. If I chose to divulge my RL to you or anyone else, that's my prerogative! If you are coming on SL with the requirement that people divulge personal RL information, you are going to be very hard pressed to make any friends on SL. People will divulge what they are comfortable divulging and requiring them to do so for the sake of friendships on SL is just going to backfire on you.

  5. Never a bad picture of VictoriaGrwd. Looking good!!
  6. I run an MC called Lone Legion MC, Hit me up Fenix Greycloak (bdobson) in world. If I'm not in-world at the time just leave an Offline I will get it.
  7. I run an MC On SL called Lone Legion MC. We really don't get into stupid crap that the other "keyboard Chest Beaters" do. I was in a RL MC so I know the inner workings. Half these MCs on SL have zero clue! It's not so much about "who can beat who up", but more about a feeling of family and Camaraderie centered around a biker culture. RL Bikers may look badass to an outsider but they are fiercely loyal and protective of each other. If anyone is interested in joining my MC, they need just hit me up in an IM and I will make them a prospect and put them up with a sponsor. That Sponsor then will be your point man, mentor and teacher. Once He/she feels you are ready for the next step, he will come to the MC court and plead your case for "Patching". if you are accepted, your in, but in My MC we go to bat for each other, you would be no exception. (patching simply means you would be a full fledged member of the MC entitled to all benefits therof. Prospects may have to put up with a lot of crap! Just remember it as a bit of hazing to see if you are up to snuff.)
  8. Lone Legion MC of SL is looking to recruit. You can hit up anyone in the MC already or just IM Me in-world and I will make you a prospect after meeting you to see if you are up to it. Fenix Greycloak (bdobson) - Lone Legion MC Founder/President
  9. I run My own Club (phoenix Underground http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Shadowmist/183/31/22 and my own MC (Lone Legion MC)
  10. The way I see it is like this (and Yes I also have a Flickr page..I don't care who sees it, I'll post the link below.). If anyone wants to post "nudies" of their avatar on a flickr account, it is nothing more then them being creative with said avatar and just showing off that creativity. As a previous poster said (and totally nailed it), its not like people are seeing them in RL. You won't be too likely to find nudies of me, not because I don't want to show my avy naked, but rather because what I HAVE posted I have found pretty cool looking and again for "artistic creativity" I Post them to my flickr. I say to each their own! https://www.flickr.com/photos/fenixgreycloak/
  11. The most annoying thing for me is my neighbors putting out objects that "Shout" in local and you can "hear it" on my parcel. Even checking the "limit sounds and gestures" option doesn't work. Try using "say" or "Whisper" if the object gives you the choice.
  12. Many club owners require voice so the DJ can advertise their Host, the club, upcoming events etc. VIPS are not always in chat range, even with an extender, but are always in range of the DJ Stream wherever they are on the club's land.
  13. I have a female alt, and I really don't run into this issue so much as the alt is mainly used for designing female orientated things that would not work on a male Avatar.
  14. And it keeps on going! I probably have 3 different incarnations of Fenix Grecloak in this thread alone!
  15. okay you said you have a stream rented. that's a vital basic. However, most club owners (myself included) won't look at anyone under 90 days old in world. Largely due to the fact in the first 90 days you are still learning SL. The SLURL you reference is provided by the club owner/management. Some things to consider: 1: Managers and owners frown on clearly "pirated" music. Such music can get an owner AND the DJ fined a hefty amount of RL Money and can potentially get the club shut down by Linden Labs. So don't do it if you can help it. 2: You have the stream rental, you will likely have been provided a Stream URL. The managers usually need that URL to put you on the DJ board (which relays your stream to the rest of the club). They won't need the password for your stream. 3: Mixxx and Sam Broadcaster is the most commonly used DJ Software, make sure you have a music collection at least 1000 tracks to start with. 4: Most clubs require the DJ to talk on mic much like a radio DJ would, 5: Don't expect the owners and managers to bring the VIPs (listeners) to you, that is usually the job of the DJ and host. Management just provides a place to do your sets. You must build a following (people who go to your sets cause they like what you do) yourself. 6: if you don't have a large enough following, you won't make much money. I've seen DJs who were only able to walk away with 50 Linden. So building the following first is most important. The Money will come afterwards. 7: Make sure you are personable and friendly. Welcome ANYONE that comes to your set. A simple "hello (name)" goes a long way. People love being acknowledged by the DJ. Personally speaking as a DJ on SL for 7 years, who has done RL Radio in the past, and as a current club owner, PRACTICE! If you got your own parcel, and have the ability, put your stream in land and practice DJing to either yourself or to some friends. Take whatever advice or criticism they may have. Friends are only trying to help you be better.

  17. I won't use google chrome for privacy reasons (They are notorious for collection your private information), I use firefox in linux but getting firestorm (or any viewer) to work in firefox is pretty much the same in all OSes, here's How I added Firestorm to Firefox's "Open with". 1: In URL bar, type in "About:config" (no quotes) Search for "network.protocol-handler.expose.secondlife" (again without quotes) 2: If nothing appears, Right click on a white space and create a new Boolean entry titled "network.protocol-handler.expose.secondlife" (no quotes) and set to false. Then proceed to step 4. 3: If it IS found in search, simply toggle until the value is "false". 4: Restart Firefox and try to enter an SLURL, It will ask for an App to use, point it to the FIRESTORM.SH (linux) or FIRESTORM.EXE (windows) file in your Firestorm folder (Firefox will list it as an application) select the file then check the box to save the association and you are done! If you don't use firestorm, find the corresponding SH (linux) or EXE file and use them instead of Firestorm. If you are using windows, it's easy to find, just right click your Viewer's Icon and select "properties" it should list the filename and location there.
  18. Yup you are right on that Ethan. I've even had noobs approach me for lindens. There are so many ways to earn lindens why "panhandle" on SL for them?
  19. The trick is keep on it...Don't smother them but at same time don't say hi and disappear either. People on SL (Myself included) tend to remove friends we don't talk to much (if at all). Also, You may find people who are not "newbie friendly" and have no patience to teach the ropes of SL. then you got guys (and gals) like me who get a kick out of it. Cause we know years down the line you are going to remember that thing we taught you.
  20. Hello everybody! My avatar name is Fenix Greycloak. I do have alts, but Fenix is my main avatar. I have been in SL for five years now. I was first introduced to Second Life through a real-life freind who suggested I use SL as a venue for our RL group of freinds to hang out. Of course, that idea went nowhere, but I stayed in SL. I spent the first year of my time in Second Life quietly exploring the grid. within 6 months I was a DJ on SL earning lindens of my own, going shopping, going out to clubs and dancing, etc. All the while my. RL wife kept asking me "you playing that stupid game again?" I introduced her to it and now she is more hooked on the "stupid game" then I am LOL. I have found the best way to make friends in Second Life is to simply follow your interests. There are always communities to join, discussion groups to participate in, and clubs to visit to suit every possible taste in music. If you are friendly and outgoing, people will be (mostly) friendly to you in turn. I also run a SL Newbie school in world.
