  1. So I am looking for more modeling opportunities in Second Life. I really enjoy having my avatar photographed/taking pictures of my avi. My avatar has a bit more of an anime look however, which has made it difficult to find work in-world, as many places require avatars to be human-only and various other restrictions. This is my current look at the moment (photo I took!), but I have other outfits too of course. Anyone know of places hiring models like me? Thi
  2. Modeling in SL is a hell of a crapshoot. Most 'modeling' places in SL are agencies that have restrictions on what avatars can and can't look like. You probably won't get paid for modeling unless you get really lucky. Generally models create a Flickr account to post photos to and link said account in their profile in-world (I have a link to mine in my in-world profile). If you're going make a career out of it, another rule of thumb is connections. Modeling is less about skill and more about who you know that can get you a foot in the door.
  3. I've seen threads asking about the best clubs or the most high traffic clubs here... but what about the ones that should be avoided? I've never seen anyone list those and I'm genuinely curious. I know it mostly comes down to personal preference of course, but I am interested in knowing what to avoid should I decide to work at a club again.
  4. Clubs that claim they give hourly wage are the ones where girls don't make very much in tips so they have to give the girls something to give an incentive to work there.
  5. Yeah on their application/notecards there is a 'secret phrase' or something. One of those "If you've read this please show it off in public chat during interview." Last I checked I think it was along the lines of, "___ has stolen my purse! Get away from me!" or similar and you had to copy-paste it into local chat during your interview to confirm you read their notecards they gave you with all of their rules and such. They have some crazy rules too... like forget about having friends coming by to say hi, you can't have friends hang out with you at the club. Basically you can't have anyone come to chill with you unless they're paying for a service.
  6. Well as someone who dabbles in freelancing (and has worked at a few clubs), the girls that make that $40,000L a month are also offering voice and cam services on top of text escorting in-world. That is the ONLY way to make substantial $L if you plan on being an escort. Clubs are also very hit or miss in terms of making tips as well. Some days you'll make maybe $1-2k at most, other times barely scratch past $100. It varies and its hard. The other key component is how well said prostitutes market themselves. The really good ones that make big business are the ones that have tons of ad-boards on all of the adult-rated sims. Escort Oasis is a prime spot to scope out the ad-boards and see which clubs and girls are advertising. It also isn't a bad idea to grab some of their rate cards and compare/contrast rates as well. From my experience the standard low end hourly rate is about $3000L/hour though I've seen girls charge anywhere from $5000 to even $8000+ per hour just for text escorting. Voice and cam girls charge substantially more. When it comes to clubs, the ones that require that their girls be "human only" (no elf ears, no wings or tails, etc) tend to be the ones that get the most traffic. 'Themed' clubs that cater to very specific niches like anime don't get nearly as much traffic. One of the most heavily advertised clubs on the grid these days is 'Plush' I believe, with 'IMPACT' at a close second in terms of ad-boards I've seen all over the place.
  7. I'm not really experienced in male heads or bodies, but generally when you buy a mesh body you'll want a high quality skin and shape to go with it. The skin and shape will drastically impact the overall look of your avatar so keep that in mind. Most people from my experience tend to favor Catwa heads for the huge amount of available skins, makeup and customization that comes with it.
  8. My avatar is I suppose, a way for me to live fantasies or do things I couldn't necessarily do or feel comfortable doing in RL. I do a lot of things (such as stripping and escorting) in Second Life via my avatar that I would absolutely never do IRL. So my avatar allows me to dabble in those things and see what it is like. Basically my avatar is an extension of myself but also gives me the ability to try new things.
  9. I demo'd the Legacy body recently for the heck of it and it is a very pretty looking mesh body I'll give it that much. but the whopping $5000L price tag is absolutely insane, especially when mesh bodies these days go for as cheap as $2500 for the Maitreya Lara as an example. Besides I've also read some skeevy things about TMP, so that also turns me off from possibly investing in it.
  10. This club is great except if you miss even one small 'secret phrase' on the note-card during the interview process, you're kicked out the door and can't even re-apply to work there if you wanted to do so. I got all the way through the interview process (which took over a week because the girl in charge of interviewing new hires almost forgot about me until I messaged her a couple of times), missed the secret phrase and was told I couldn't be hired. Recently I inquired about possibly applying again and was told two completely different things. One employee (a friend of mine) stated that it was possible to re-apply. Another club employee rudely told me that they don't accept re-hires after I politely inquired. Some consistency on that matter would be nice.
  11. So I've run into an odd issue while using the latest version of Firestorm. I can't seem to get sounds to work at all lately, especially voice chat. Voice is constantly cutting in and out when friends try to talk to me, and I can no longer hear sounds playing from things like the typer that I use, nor hear other friends typing. I went through all of my sound settings both in Firestorm and my laptop and I have no clue if its a computer issue or viewer issue. Anyone else experiencing this? I’m using the latest Mac version of Firestorm, 6.0.2.56680

  13. So I can't even login to SL without issues now, it keeps hanging repeatedly upon login with checking stability requirements. And then when it finally lets me in-world, the sim I'm in is barely even loaded properly with bits and pieces of stuff everywhere. My avatar is still an orange cloud. I've tried the latest version of Firestorm, as well as the default LL viewer and get the same results. I tried clearing caches, and that didn't help either. So I'm really thinking this is a big problem on Second LIfe's end and not my viewer or internet or what not. Funny thing is, SL was working just fine for me earlier this afternoon and only now am I having all these issues.
  14. I'm having this exact issue repeatedly as well. I keep getting disconnected trying to teleport to another sim. That and upon login, I stay as an orange cloud far longer than normal and only bits and pieces of the sim I am logging in at are loading in. Same with avatars, only bits and pieces loading in (like some have hair, others are just floating heads, etc). Not sure if its an internet issue or something else on SL's end of things. Either way its frustrating because I just want to hang out with my friends and chat. :C
  15. So I recently went to edit some of my new listings (aka purging the ridiculous amount of gacha items in my inventory send help) and in my list on the Marketplace website I've noticed some that are active listings but they are completely blank. As in there's no name or anything but the checkmark is green as if the listing is active. When I look at the listings in-world they are all named correctly in the "Marketplace Listings" window that shows up with the list of folders and such. Is there a fix for this discrepancy between what is shown in-world and on the website?
