  1. I've heard of BeYou but no idea where to find it. I did hear it can get expensive, but I'm not sure how either. I'm interested if you find out more about it.
  2. Regardless of who the money goes to it's MONEY regardless. I don't care if it's used to fund your adopted chimpanzee in an Africa sanctuary for Primates. The point is that these people paid for it. And honestly I don't know about your "core product" because I've never bought from you. I viewed your store and saw the collars. So no, not everyone knows that. Don't think so highly of yourself that everyone knows about your product. I had never heard of you until today.
  3. Imagine paying 1.2k Lindens for a collar only to have the maker turn into into a spam machine. Troll or no troll, you've got to see how that's messed up, @Wendy Starfall
  4. Optional entertainment doesn't count as a necessity, though. A company like Second Life is under no obligation to change anything, despite the times we are living in. It will only hurt them and us in the long run if they go bankrupt.
  5. I'm sorry for interjecting something completely useless, but since this entire thread is useless I guess it doesn't matter. *eats popcorn*
  6. I took a couple of days to post this because I, honestly, I wasn't sure if I wanted to make this public of go straight to a Linden. I had to gather my thoughts and finally decided. In this public avenue all I'll say is that I'm no longer going to use my child avatar. Having people say it's weird really didn't phase me because I knew what my intentions were and still know there are good child avies out there. However, after late Friday (ironically not long after my last post here) I encountered something that made my skin crawl. I still know that there are good child avies out there but I can no longer participate in it knowing with my own two eyes now, the depravity some can go to. I'm not apart of the problem but I refuse to be lumped into a group like that simply out of commonality. And I don't wish to leave Second Life, so I guess it's time for a change. For those here who wish to RP as a child (and aren't weirdos) I wish you the best but I can't anymore. Sorry for being so vague but trust I will not be with a Linden. I'm going to file a report ticket now.
  7. Understandable and really a good rule to go by on Second Life in general
  8. Thank you! Resizing the eyes (I failed to click both L & R last time) and it worked.
  9. You were exactly right, thank you! Such a simple answer yet I would have fumbled with it for hours more probably. Bonus question: any idea why my eyes are sunk in? It's not ridiculous but the eye depth is a bit more than I would like. Is there a way to fix that?
  10. No idea what I'm doing wrong but my avie looks odd with black hair and white eyebrows. Can anyone tell me how to fix this? They are the shape I want, just not the color. I thought maybe I needed to pick hair base color (since I don't see an eyebrows option) but if that is the correct method then I'm not doing something right because that's not working either.
  11. @Matty LuminosSadly not uncommon. Like I said in my original post, I think pretty much any place described as a "kid's place" in search is a hive for very seedy stuff! I hope you this experience didn't make you dislike all child avies. They're are some good ones out there, I promise. Just sometimes they are the less vocal and don't stand out as much.
  12. I can't help OP with their request, but I completely understand where it comes from. Just like it's nice to have friends who are interested in the same television series as you it is great to find people who have similar lives as you because there is just a connection there that others won't get. I fully support the LGBTQ community but I don't live it so in that sense I'll never fully understand the some things that many LGBTQ people just accept as a part of life. My frame of reference can only relate so far, as does everyone's. Some people here are really misconstruing what OP meant. I didn't read it as she's adverse to being friends with anyone, or visiting a place because of race or orientation, just that they would like to know/find a place that's 100% inclusive to their identity. Nothing wrong with that.
  13. I often hang around Eastern inspired Sims. I know plenty historical sims, and a few modern ones too but I've yet to find an ancient folklore based one. Having said that, I'll ask around, and since I sim hop so much I'll keep an eye out in this area.
  14. I don't as of this instance have a Star Wars character, in fact I never thought about this king of RP, but now that I have I'm extremely interested. Thanks for planting the seed for me to think on. I hope you find someone who meets your RP needs! P.S. I'm sorry to ask you this in your thread, but could you IM or tell me here some good Star Wars sims to visit if I want to start this journey, but as a rouge, untrained youngling sith?
  15. Last night, far later than I should be up, I saw the forum being spammed to hell and back by this person. It was enough to make my sleep deprived brain go "that's enough internet for tonight." I can't tell if they are a very unfunny troll trying to annoy/freak people out while confusing them into a coma, or if they are legitimately insane. I'm leaning toward a bit from both section.
  16. I feel like I can vouch for this reasoning, at least for me personally.
  17. Though many have said my thoughts more succinctly I thought I would jump in for a moment with my thoughts. I play as a child avatar who is about 11 or 12 years old. I doubt she'll get older and I know she won't get any younger. I enjoy it more than being an adult, and no I do not want to be a child nor was my childhood 'broken' in any way. I'm really into roleplaying and playing for some reason makes me feel more comfortable being exuberant, talkative, and outgoing. I love it and wouldn't spend my SL days any other way. My character has her own extensive backstory, dreams, and goals and, when I'm in the right headspace feels alive to me. I can really disappear into her unlike I ever could playing as an adult. As an adult, it was always easy to project myself onto my avatar, which for me was bad for RPing. But with my current character? Well, that's not a problem. She feels more like a reminiscence of childhood that I tap into when I log on. As my avatar, I do not do the whole family RP thing. It works for some, perhaps even many, but for me, it seems too restricting. I want to play a carefree and exuberant child, not login to be babied by virtual parents. On a similar note, I see some people in the thread say they don't hang out with child avatars, and really I can understand why. Though my reasoning may be very different from theirs. As child avatar, I don't hang out with toddler or baby avatars because we are RPing two completely different worlds (and honestly baby/toddler talk annoys me, but to each their own, obviously). I imagine the same can easily be said about an adult avie being best friends with a kid. Not only could it possibly look weird, but it probably wouldn't mesh RP-wise. I've adapted a "talk to those who seem friendly" attitude. I have many acquaintances, from kids to adults but I wouldn't go far as to call any of them friends to my avie despite being on my Friends list. And this works out well for me as my character is a bit of an energetic vagrant intent on her own dreams. Now...Having said that, SL has a problem. And that problem begins with age and ends with play. I noticed it shortly after getting my avatar set up to the way she is now. It's at the point where I block first and wonder later if I misconstrued the person's message, but so far this strategy has served me well. It also helps that I refuse to go on A-rated sims (as all child avies should - a child, toddler or anyone playing under 18 has no excuse whatsoever to venture into that side of SL!) and avoid what I believe are hotspots for the bad sort - like playgrounds or anything in the search for locations that brings up the words children and or "little avies" in the description of the spot. The way I look at it, the people who do bad are the problem, not the people who play as children - at least the TOS abiding ones, and therefore I won't change how I spend my Second Life because some people view the whole community as weird. All I hope is that more people would understand that not everyone who RPs as a kid is crazy, a deviant, a drama-stirrer or has an awful childhood of their own. I really see it no differently than the MANY SL users who RP as gorgeous, fresh-faced 20-something-year-old bombshells when in real life they are completely average and more than likely past their twenties, and living a far less glamorous life than they portray on SL. Or those who decide to play as animals. Just because some child avatars are at best annoying and at worst immoral sickos doesn't mean you should paint us all in one big swoop. Get to know someone before you make a judgment... And this thread is doing just that! Letting both sides voice their opinion and (mostly) be civil about it, so thank you @Jaylah Sass for that!
