  1. Thank you so much for such a quick reply! How wonderful of you! I did as you said, which as I understand it, recommends that I delete the whole "Hello Avatar" script, paste in my new script, and then save, but I received an error message. I was using Innula's script: default{ state_entry() { llVolumeDetect(FALSE); llSetPrimitiveParams([PRIM_PHANTOM,FALSE, (I changed her script to plain text here.) Do you have any further recommendations? I bought a skybox, and can't seem to make it non-phantom, much like the original poster. Thank you ... I truly appreciate your help! I went far out of my way to find this skybox, and I really don't want to give up on it.
  2. Oh heck yeah, body shaming is a thing. The premise that it's just a game and you could change your avatar if you wanted to ... is ridiculous. In that case, why not (just as absurdly) require everyone "standard" looking to change their avatars to resemble the more exotic ones? Just as silly, but it makes the point. Just like real-life body shaming, it's all about enforcing conformity on SL. And just like real life, the people who love to body shame lack one morsel of information: Not everyone can or should conform. In real life, there are disorders like polycystic ovarian disorder that drastically affect a woman's proportions over her lifetime. Or diabetes. I'm sure there are many others. Sometimes in SL, we want our avatars to reflect us. Us as we really are. Us triumphantly unshamed and happy with whatever bodies we find ourselves in. So, body shaming in SL often can devastate the person behind the screen. It's their own bodies they live in 24/7 that body shamers insult. More disturbingly, body-shaming sometimes takes on racial overtones which is absolutely forbidden by the tos --and very rightly so. Not everyone wants to look just like everyone else, with a few salient permutations on the theme. You keep that body-shaming to yourself.
