  1. I recently resubscribed and logged in. Hadn't been around in a while but am bored. Also, Animal Crossing has me decorating a lot and probably is what has driven me to return here, where I have even more freedom to decorate
  2. I guess I get overwhelmed when I go to a store like Catwa and try on a head and it doesn't look like the picture because it's not using the applier from the pic and then I get overwhelmed wondering what all the possibilities are what that head could look like depending on the skin applied and then I just second guess everything
  3. You know, I had the same head from LOGO for a long time. When I upgraded to Quinn, it looked closest to the previous head I owned. I wonder if we get attached to our avatars and things just don't feel right if we go too crazy different. I feel like that's part of what holds me back from changing. Thank you for this perspective, I appreciate it! Thank you so much for this! I will play around with the shape a bit today. I know I saw some article about proportions in SL, maybe I'll try to find that again. One thing about proportions - I usually prefer to keep my avatar short as I'm only 4'11 irl and I enjoy being smaller in both worlds. It's never caused me an issue I think because my head is obviously very adult but I do wonder sometimes if people are judging how short I am 😀
  4. Current Body: Maitreya Current Head: LOGO Bento Quinn I've played off and on for many years, however I've always kept my avatar simple. I had a mesh head from LOGO, so when Bento stuff came out, I just bought something I was familiar with LOGO - their Quinn Bento head. And it was a fine upgrade. I didn't do anything to it aside from make sure the skin matched my body and was blended at the neck. I only used whatever customization settings came with the LOGO or Maitreya hud. I've never tried to use Omega stuff or makeup appliers. That said, I think I'm ready to tiptoe into further customizing my avatar. Can anyone recommend some sources of tutorials or information to get started? I was look at Catwa bento heads. Are those a good idea or should I look elsewhere? I don't have a problem with the Maitreya body, but should I be considering other options? Should I just keep my current head and focus on learning how to use omega for appliers to further customize? I asked the LOGO group where my current head was being sold in the store and someone told me it was " soooooooo old." Should I upgrade in that case? I'm so overwhelmed!
  5. Alas, I'm still waiting for my forever home. Anyone want a roommate while I attempt my daily tries and fails? I was thinking of getting a cheap skybox or some rental for a week while I keep attempting. I miss just even having one tiny place to call my own. I love decorating and am very LI conscious. So if you are in the midst of decorating and just have an empty room sitting around that you haven't gotten to or some empty space outside, I'd love to spend some time with you ❤️
  6. Do you take money for services or is this purely RP? I have a problem with people claiming to be RL doctors and therapists giving out treatment online for any monetary gain. I still think it is poor choice to advertise you are willing to give counseling. Serious damage can be done by offering such a service to the most vulnerable.
  7. Why are humans disgusting? Did I miss the /s?
  8. Gamer here. This is exactly how I feel. Second Life users try so hard to distinguish themselves from the gaming industry that in my opinion it hurts them. If they embraced that community and technology, they could follow along with the progress the gaming industry is setting and moving forward. I’ve played online games for over a decade, and so I’m not a stranger to online worlds. SL is an online world. However, the rest of the online games are looking at each other, competing with each other, pushing the boundaries of technology, finding new and innovative ways to implement ways to socialize and connect. While Second Life just sits in the corner with its arms crossed and says “No! I’m not like the rest of you and I won’t hang out and learn and progress with you!! I’m too cool for you!!” It’s a real /smh sort of moment for me, watching Second Life be so stubborn. And to what end? So people can roll their eyes at the “elitist” gamers and tell themselves, “Oh, me? Gamer? No way. I’m not so pathetic... I LIVE in Second Life.” Snobs. That’s honestly the word that comes to mind when I look at this issue from some people’s description. It honestly just sounds like older folks who don’t want to be labeled gamers for whatever preconceived negative notion that is in their head. Yup. I said it. Go ahead and burn me at the stake.
  9. You have the right to your opinion, but as a self-titled 'gamer,' that definitely stings. Are there toxic people in games? Yeah. Is gaming culture toxic by nature? No. Games where people have to interact with each other tend to do best when you are being cooperative with others -- which works best when you can be a decent human being. Are there trolls and jerks? Yeah... but there's also the kind of community that leads to lifelong friendships and marriages.
  10. 1. Maybe it's worth of an AR, but I wouldn't go out of my way to do it. It just sounds sort of trollish -- but in a passive kind of way. They aren't actively trolling a sim. YOU have to click their profile to even see it. 2. I wouldn't delete it. This is a virtual world/game. There are people of all sorts here, some who like to troll.Would I buy from in the future? Probably not. They'd have to have really amazing quality stuff for me to go out of my way to buy from them again. But I wouldn't delete my little pixel merch just because they have a trollish profile.
  11. I stand on the 'game' side of the debate, but honestly this comes down to human decency. Don't be a jerk. Playing a 'game' doesn't give you some special permission to cross boundaries and be a douchecanoe.
  12. I agree with this. I'm not a 'power player,' -- whatever that is -- I just don't like paying more than I have to for a product.
  13. I'm Naly. I'm 31/F/New Orleans USA ... and old enough that I still think a/s/l is still used. In world, I enjoy decorating, shopping, and some more decorating. I enjoy video games in general -- especially RPGs. I'm currently playing the new God of War with my husband (we like to play single player games together -- more interactive than just watching TV shows together). It's actually pretty darn good -- and God of War has never been my scene. I guess there's a reason it's winning awards. I also enjoy hula hoop dancing. Yup. It's a thing and I do it. You can look it up on Youtube if you are wondering what I'm talking about. I enjoy reading -- usually fantasy series. I'm rereading Iron Druid at the moment because apparently two books have come out since I last read it. Oh... and I like cats... a lot.
  14. This whole topic just stinks of bad science. There's no way to get meaningful, accurate data. I think it's fine to want to pontificate on the issue of people playing genders not their own in Second Life, but that's about as far as the discussion can go without real numbers. Why not just ask people if they play their own gender and why or why not? Actually, I'm sure there are already threads on that topic.
  15. Lol... serves me right (again) for giving someone the benefit of the doubt. Carry on.
  16. Thanks for pointing this out. I think it's low hanging fruit to jump on criticizing someone's creativity. No matter what someone shares with the world, it's not going to be everyone's cup of tea. That's okay.
  17. That was quite unexpected and impressive . Most people would have simply replied with “u guyz suck “
  18. Which is why you should set it to 2 -- so that you can be more discriminate in the items you choose to place on your land. You should be trying to make a place that is beautiful for the average SL user (if you are genuine in your OP) -- and I'm guessing the average SL user is set to 2.
  19. Why not simply suggest lower land costs for everyone? That seems like the simplest answer. Because if we do it your way, that requires some sort of regulation and someone has to take the time to verify if people are following rules. You would want Linden Labs to receive less money while they pay more money to have people implement this new rule.
  20. That's awesome, Syo!! Congratulations <3
  21. I switch up my houses regularly. I like to make new scenes to log into. I know all too well the feeling of needing the 'perfect' house for the mood. I'm currently digging this open living kind of option at the moment. The trick is trying to make sure I get decent LOD objects since so many can be seen by my neighbors.
