  1. I logged in right after getting home from work to catch at least part of Pirate DJ Sophia’s set! Sorry I missed the Linden Werewolf though. 😔
  2. Breaking the 4th wall for a moment The "Pirate DJs of Bellisseria" are a collective who work closely with each other (you should see our private Discord server!), and we all endeavor to bring maximum fun--with minimal impact--to the community spirit of Bellisseria. We constantly measure our impact and continually put heads together to make that impact as small as possible. One such way we're doing that--going forward--is to move all around Bellisseria a lot so that we appear in any one region infrequently. But this collective does not contain all the DJs who operate in Bellisseria. We have no control over other indy DJs. You can always tell who the Pirate DJs are by looking for the key word "Pirate DJ" in the http://bellisseriahappenings.com calendar (also reproduced in The Bellisserian newspaper). Or by looking at our roster of member DJs over at http://piratedjsofbellisseria.com.
  3. UPDATE 1451 SLC TUE AUG 06 2019 AN UNCONFIRMED LIAISON FROM THE PIRATE DJS HAS FURTHER ADVISED THE NATIONAL SAFETY AGENCY THAT CAPTAIN USAGI HAS HOISTED GROG WITH ALL THE CAPTAINS. WHEREBY THEY ALL DRUNKENLY AGREED TO PERSONALLY OBSERVE THAT CITIZEN PARCELS TO WHICH PIRATES HAVE LURED BY THE PROMISE OF BOOTY (SHAKING) HAVE IN TRUTH BEEN CONFIGURED TO LIMIT SOUNDS TO PARCEL. CAPTAIN USAGI ADDED THAT "ME MATEYS WILL PROBABLY REMEMBER EVEN THOUGH THEY PASSED OUT IMMEDIATELY AFTER COMING TO RAUCOUS AGREEMENT." THE LIAISON FURTHER CONFIRMED THAT THE PIRATES' SONIC INCURSIONS DO MOVE AROUND EVERY TIME AND NO ONE REGION SHOULD BE SUBJECT TO VISITATION VERY OFTEN.
  4. 000 WTNT21 KNHC 212032 TCMAT1 PIRATE ACTIVITY FORECAST/ADVISORY NUMBER 5 BELLISSERIA NATIONAL SAFETY AGENCY GRAFF AL012019 2100 SLC MON AUG 05 2019 PIRATE DJ WATCH IN EFFECT. INTERESTS IN BELLISSERIA SHOULD MONITOR THE PROGRESS OF THIS NEFARIOUS ACTIVITY. A DEVELOPING HIGH PLEASURE SYSTEM OVER BELLISSERIA POSES AN ONGOING THREAT OF SUDDEN AND UNPREDICTABLE PARTIES CAUSED BY PROPAGATION OF SOUND WAVES AND THE PRESENCE OF ROGUE DJS. THESE PARTY SYSTEMS ARE HIGHLY UNSTABLE AND CAN OCCUR ANYWHERE ACROSS THE REGIONS OF BELLISSERIA, AS THESE SCOFFLAWS COMMONLY KNOWN AS "THE PIRATE DJS OF BELLISSERIA" EMPLOY ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY THAT ENABLES SPINNING HEAVY BEATS EVEN ON COMMON PUBLIC AREAS THAT HAVE NO ACTIVE PARCEL STREAM. THE NATIONAL SAFETY AGENCY ADVISES THAT OCCASIONAL HEAVY PIRATE ACTIVITY MIGHT OCCUR ANYWHERE IN BELLISSERIA AT ANY TIME. AUTHORITIES ARE UNABLE TO PREDICT WITH ACCURACY WHERE AND WHEN THE PIRATE DJS MIGHT STRIKE NEXT, BECAUSE THEY CONSTANTLY RAID DIFFERENT REGIONS TO AVOID DETECTABLE PATTERNS AND EVADE APPREHENSION BY AUTHORITIES. UNCONFIRMED REPORTS ALSO SUGGEST THAT SOME BELLISSERIA RESIDENTS ARE ACTIVELY SEEKING OUT AND HARBORING THESE PIRATE DJS WITH INTENT TO CREATE MASSIVE ASSAULTS OF SONIC ENERGY IN THEIR OWN BACKYARDS. IT IS RUMORED THAT SUCH CLANDESTINE EVENTS ATTRACT A SEEDY BOHEMIAN ELEMENT TO OUR OTHERWISE PRISTINE NEIGHBORHOODS AND MARINAS, RESULTING IN UNCONTROLLED BACCHANALIA AND WANTON DISREGARD FOR THE PUBLIC PEACE. THE NATIONAL SAFETY AGENCY REMINDS ALL CITIZENS TO AVOID ENGAGING IN SUCH LAWLESS AND UNSEEMLY COLLUSION WITH THIS DANGEROUS CRIMINAL ELEMENT. IF YOU ENCOUNTER A SUDDEN OUTBURST OF PIRATE PARTY ACTIVITY, THE NATIONAL SAFETY AGENCY ADVISES YOU TO RUN AWAY IMMEDIATELY. HESITATION CAN RESULT IN BEING OVERWHELMED BY FEELINGS OF EUPHORIA AND A SERIOUS MEDICAL CONDITION KNOWN AS "PIRATE FEVER". SYMPTOMS INCLUDE INVOLUNTARY MOVEMENT AND A SENSATION OF RHYTHM AND JIVE, EXCESSIVE SWEATING, AND FEELINGS OF INTENSE HAPPINESS. ............ UPDATE 2208 SLC MON AUG 05 2019 AN UNCONFIRMED LIAISON FROM THE PIRATE DJS HAS ADVISED THE NATIONAL SAFETY AGENCY THAT THEY MEAN NO HARM AND THAT "OUR SIMPLE GOAL IS TO HELP BELLISSERIA CITIZENS EXPERIENCE TRUE HAPPINESS". THE LIAISON FURTHER STATED THAT "IF YOUR CITIZENS EVER FEEL THAT WE ARE MAKING THEM UN-HAPPY IN SOME WAY, THEY SHOULD SEEK OUT THE PIRATE DJ LEADING THE FESTIVITIES AND ASK THEM NICELY TO SHOW MERCY. OUR DJ LEADING THAT PARTICULAR SORTIE WILL RESPECT SUCH ENTREATIES IF THEY ARE MADE POLITELY AND IN GOOD FAITH. OTHERWISE, WE SHALL SIMPLY TURN THE VOLUME UP TO ELEVEN."
  5. If we rush the Moles and Lindens, it will ultimately harm the very aspect of Bellisseria that makes it so desirable in the first place--the handcrafted uniqueness, personality, and beauty of the landscape in and around the home parcels. And watching the history of calls for different release tactics here over the past months, the Moles and Lindens can't win either way. People complained they didn't want to wait entire months for the next big batch (such as the 700-plot Squishy Pickle area) to be ready. So they start releasing at a much faster (but smaller) cadence, and now the complaints are just as numerous, but different. And ironically calling for a return to the long waits and big releases. I totally understand that it can be frustrating to make time to be rolling the dice when a release is about to happen. But going back to the long waits and big releases isn't the panacea you think it is. Those 700 plots were gone in less than 30 minutes. If you'd stayed home from work that day to roll the dice, you still might have not been smiled upon by Lady Luck. Belli will keep growing. Some residents will continually get tired of "that new car smell" and move on to the next shiny thing that catches their eye. Or they'll decide that the open social atmosphere of Belli isn't their cup of tea. Eventually, everyone feeling frustrated today will be a Belli resident
  6. Bah, your Sanctuary (and the coffee stand), are just fine, Jessyca. Patch's comments and examples in the pinned post at the top of this forum are really hard to misconstrue. The only longer-standing point of debate for a while revolved around tip jars, but that's been put to rest too (no tip jars anywhere in Belli--not even on the Fairgrounds at special events).
  7. Hmm, 7 posts and already jumping at shadows? Most of the Bellesserians--and certainly the ones who are always around doing proactive things for the community--like JessycaJayne (the Bellisserian Hamster)--are very aware of the non-commerical nature of the covenant. The various "neighborhood establishments" you'll see around Belli are essentially role-play. They're locations for community to congregate around. Nothing to see here; move along. 😉
  8. No. Patch was abundantly clear this morning that tip jars are not allowed anywhere in Bellisseria. Not even at organized Fairgrounds events in the future. The Pirate DJs of Bellisseria took this stance proactively, back when the question about tip jars was still a debated point. It’s no longer a debatable point. 🙂
  9. Hey everyone, back on the topic of the OP post about the Pirate DJ Treaty, it seems that we're not able to continually re-edit a post after 24 hours. Because the actual members of The Pirate DJs of Bellisseria will grow (and fluctuate) over time, we have created a website where you can learn about each of the Pirate DJs, our running event calendar, our treaty, and how to join us! https://www.piratedjsofbellisseria.com And with that, I let this thread be.
  10. The "tip jars at Fairgrounds?" discussion was always secondary to the main OP of the thread, lol. But I'm very glad we now have a definitive, unambiguous policy about tip jars across Bellisseria. The question had been lingering across a few threads for the past couple months and left up to diverse interpretation. Thank you, Patch, for clarifying!
  11. Hoping we can stop worrying about what happened in the past, but just focus on clarity and consensus moving forward into the future.
  12. A stinger/jingle introducing yourself isn't asking for an exchange of money for service. Hell, I have an entire song introducing myself, lol.
  13. Indeed. The covenant is identical on every parcel and region in Bellisseria. Even the full water regions. Even the fairgrounds--go look! Therefore..... I mean really, do we need to split hairs and do rules-lawyering and call for a Linden to come in yet again and interpret what is a pretty clear set of guidelines already? Belli, in its entirety, is "Linden Covenant Land". We've heard Patch say this in the past. The non-commercial spirit of the covenant is clear and unambiguous. Asking for tips is clearly a commercial activity; it's literally asking for a profit in return for a service, which is clearly and unambiguously "of a commercial nature". The covenant is clearly and unambiguously against commercial activity of any sort. The convent is on every single region in Belli--even the "protected" regions. Therefore....
  14. Again, the answer lies within the pinned thread I quoted above. The following quote is also from that post by @Patch Linden. Bold emphasis mine. Key word is "neighborhood". _______ We think in spirit, the desire to maintain the community feel of the neighborhood and homes, that this small adjustment to the covenant will help to make things clear that these are homes, not stores or shops. We have other plans in place to satisfy requests for something like a yard sale, where you could feature Linden Homes add-ons in a communal area already in place, to come soon™. -------------
