     As @ThorinII mentioned, I only rarely visited Gor: From '09 when I got interested in having a look into it, through Mid-'12, I was on Gor only 10 or 12 times in total - whenever I was neither at my back-then Mistress nor at the Community Gateway in FFH Land (which closed down in '09) or at NewBerlin, or exploring SL otherwise. And those times when I did visit Gor, I was always in the role of a Merchant, a so-called "Free Woman", with my collar set on Stealth - simply because I absolutely didn't want to play a kajira or bondmaid there at all, and didn't want to get too much involved in this RP anyways.

    "Once a Gor always a Gor"? That's VERY biased, to put it mildly. 👿

    Anyways, I had lots of other things to do in SL as well: When I was online back then, being with my Mistress as her sub (or rather TPE-slave) took most of my time, then being a newbie helper for 2 to 3 hours per day, too; and being a creator myself took some time, and exploring, and meeting friends and so on - there were times when I was inworld for 6 and more hours in a row. Per day.

    However, after a hiatus due to health reasons, from late '12 through Mid-'14, I eventually did play a teenager on an alt until late '16 (to get ideas for the protagonist in one of my stories, I even named her after this protagonist), playing a student in a High School Roleplay - and at about the same time-frame also playing the daughter of an innkeeper in a Fantasy setting;

    And I did play a handicapped person on another alt (mainly to see the reactions from others: I wanted to get ideas for another character in one of my stories) - until I found my way into the realms of D/s again, with some help and persuasion of my former RL-Dominant. :)

     

    So I what I wrote 6.5 years ago in that blog post @ThorinII  quoted above, was not only based on my little Gor experience - but rather based on things I experienced in general.

    I never read the books so to me Gor is very very weird. TO ME, it just looks like slave simulator with no womens rights what so ever. Its a Man's world simulator.

    - Godmodding is having a character who is uber strong and zero weakness that cannot be killed. Everything can die. Even you.

     

    Uber strong and 0 weaknesses = "GOD" modding. Kinda why it has the term God in the name.

    again, i came from IMVU. Trust me when i say, way different over there.

    Godmodding would be, for example:

    • Thorine hits XY straight in the face, making them stumble and fall down

     

    I know this as Autohitting, not godmodding.

    I think you have godmodding and power-playing mixed up.

    What you describe as godmodding is generally known as powerplaying in the circles where I roleplay.
    Godmodding is making decisions and actions for other characters, and environment you normally would not be able to influence.

     

    I wasn't taught on SL, most of my experience comes from IMVU.


  5. I hired a person to custom make a outfit for Maitreya for 12,000 L$...at the time i was stupid and naive, and said yes. paid 11k of it upfront...only to be removed and blocked a week later, no product. Which I learned then to never pay a dime upfront. Ive still have yet to be reimbursed 11k. x.x

  6. Thought I write some basics to roleplay that I WAS TAUGHT/GO BY. Again, this is what i use. These are not set in stone, just personally used as my rule-of-thumb.

    First, Godmodding.

    - Godmodding is having a character who is uber strong and zero weakness that cannot be killed. Everything can die. Even you.

    Second, Metagaming.

    - Metagaming is using Out-of-Character (OOC) information In-Character (IC). Just because you are aware of the information does NOT mean your character does.

    Third. YOU are NOT your character. So don't take crap personal if something happens IC, such as insults.

    Fourth....  Your character has limits, whether physical or mental. Example is sprinting for days straight and completely fine and no fatigue. Limits keep you from Godmodding.

     

    Thats all I can think of right now. Help it helps.

     


  7. Yes, I'd say come to SL. As a IMVU user for 6 years straight, I can assure you that SL is better. More customization for your avatar and no stupid upload KB limit, be creative in what you make. If you lag, just simply adjust your settings, which have way more adjustability then IMVU. IMVU also, from my 6 year experience, has a  💩 ton more community drama then SL. WHICH IS WHY I LEFT.

    tl:dr = SL is better.


  8. I personally tend to stay away from the whole SL family stuff. Especially when the "parents" have like 7+ "kids", also when the parents have cutesy nicknames like "Hubby" or "Wifey". *****ing creepy. Like people, you not *****ing children anymore, stop with the kiddie cutesy *****, ITS NOT CUTE, just creepy.

       I mean, people pay to play MMOs. People pay to get cosmetic items in MOBAs. I don't get why anyone has anything against it having a cost to play it - like any creator in SL, they need an incentive to keep developing and maintaining their systems. It's simple, really - either you enjoy it, and find it worthwhile, or you don't. I laugh at people who wear branded clothes because, is it worth the twice up on price to be turned into a walking advert for some capitalistic company that is statistically probable to employ child labor? But what do I know, I've never been part of the 'cool kid clan' where brands mean anything. But sure, if someone gets a chuckle out of how people pay someone for the ability to do/appear something they enjoy, go for it.

    It's a pay to play game with an internal micro economy, not some kind of actual money making venture.

     

    I did say IMHO...... aka IN MY HONEST OPINION. And I also respect your replies, but civily disagree.

    Somehow no one's mentioned Black Dragon, THE most graphical viewer with its own built-in pose editor that is as accurate as an external pose editor unlike AnyPose which has preset animations. (Plus it can be used to create full animations, not just static poses.) It even has Bento bone support so you can create full expressions inworld.

    i'ma look into this? could i get a link to the viewer?

       Virtual Private Network, it's a tool through which you route your connection to mask your online activity, among other things. It's often used by people who wish to access content that has been regionally disabled (or regional-specifically enabled) such as certain YouTube content, news media and such - as well as by pirates who don't want the caught by the authorities. It may sound dodgy, but, it really isn't; a lot of people have them without doing anything shady online. And as far as I know, they're entirely legal even in 'the land of the free'. 

    Friggin beat me to it. :P
