  1. Your Biggest SL Disappointment

    big disappointments where losing last names, and how the process came to be. Rodvik made a meeting with the residents to find a solution, we eagerly cooperated to find a solution, and came out with something very viable, and at the end of all that group thinking session, we got a No. then we got to see that it was still possible, when a Linden got a new custom last name. maybe Linden Lab didn't saw significance in having last names or maybe it was spending too much resources in thinking in last names. my other big disappointment was when Rodvik killed the General Discussions forums as they were, it was thriving with energy, everything happened, but I guess it was kind of chaotic and it was giving bad PR to Linden Lab. other disappointment is to find many forms of discrimination, against furries, child avis, BDSM people, some people need to live and let live. if they disagree with the furry lifestyle for example, is up to them to not wear a furry avi, if they don't like child avis, they have the choice to never be a child avi. maybe it has to do with the tribal part of our humanity, some people feel more powerful when they know they belong to a certain group of people, they feel safer from the different ones, and probably raise their confidence, knowing that many people share their point of view. rejecting others that are too different makes the feel that they are in the right choice, improving their confidence.
  2. a wedding ring is generally accepted in many cultures as a person not available for romance except from its partner. there are so many meaning in wearing an RLV collar that a person have to ask if it wants to approach that person differently depending on the meaning. is s/he available to approach? does it mean that s/he has a partner? it is a fashion accessory? does it mean that is a person you don't want to be related with due to ideological reasons? the purpose of the design of the RLV collar is from BDSM lifestyle, where the wearer is owned and is a submissive to a Master/Mistress, that should be our initial perception, it may have a different meaning to the owner of the collar, there is where the need to ask come from. if people all around would start wearing wedding rings as a fashion choice, you would have to start asking people that wears them that you see as a potential partner, are you single?
  3. I used to hang out with the cool kids of the 90s, we walk to different places every day looking for a party or making our own adventures, our source of music used to be MTV, some cassettes with music we recorded from radio stations, and visiting the local music store that sometimes had a new album of some great band, radio and MTV was the source to keep updated with the latest cool music, we used to push the limit on alternative fashion, or anything that was very different from the norm, we tried to push boundaries with the little access to resources that we had, those were the times..
  4. I hope the graphics keep improving with time, there was some time ago some ideas to make mesh clothing wave with movement and wind, Linden Lab decided not to use it at the moment. I hope we don't get stuck for long years without graphics improvements, when Rod Humble came as CEO he gave SL a boost, he bring mesh, real time shadows, lighting effects, it refreshed Second Life. I hope HairWorks or something similar comes in the future, when the average user can handle it, if some can not, or prefer not, there should be an option to turn it off, not force it to anyone.
  5. System avatar - out of style?

    It doesn't really matter what others would like to see on your avatar, what matters is what you would like to see, after all, others are going to see it for a short time while you will see it all the time. they can make their avatars however they want, you can make your avatar however you like, everybody is the boss of how they want to live their Second Life. now, if you are really interested in being part of a group that frown upon system avatars, like a modelling agency, you may want to have 1 mesh avatar that you can use in special occasions. who knows? you may end up liking it better and may become your main shape. do whatever feels right for you, system avatar, mesh avatar, you decide.
  6. How to make a fraud leave second life forever?

    it was a dishonest and low move by the escort to pretend to truly love someone in a romantic way to get financial support. if she wanted financial support in exchange of sex and didn't have any romantic feelings towards @ashlynkilane, she should have said so from the beginning and if @ashlynkilane would have agreed, when they part ways there shouldn't be any problem, they both would knew exactly what they want, what to expect, with all the expectations of the relationship clear there would be no reason for disappointments. offering an agreement that you don't plan to comply with, enticing the other person to agree hiding information from them, obtaining a huge amount of money from them and leave, only for the other person to find out afterwards that the first person didn't comply with the agreement, is fraud. I don't know if Linden Lab would have a form of coming down on that type of fraud, but if there isn't... @ashlynkilane don't make that bad experience the center of your life. it sucks, it sucks really big, but don't let the shockwaves of that bad experience damage you more, if you are going to be remembering and remembering, it will cause you more harm psychologically and emotionally than losing so much money. don't give her too much importance in your life, get rid of all her memories, clean yourself from her, and if she comes back some day asking for money and pretending that she loves you, then it will be your time for revenge. she may come, because she may need to buy some things and you loved her. if she doesn't, erase her from your life and prove her how much unnecessary she was in your life and how you are capable of being happy without her, maybe start a new relationship, but this time with your lesson learned, if you give this new relationship money, consider it a gift, money that will not come back, a gift is something that comes out from the appreciation of your heart, not something that you are giving in exchange of something, if you expect something in return then its buying, in some way, expecting gratefulness from your gifts it's like buying her love, love should be to provide for that person because we want their well being, in a romantic relationship where we are more sensible we sometimes can't help to expect some kind of gratefulness for what we done for others, in that way, I understand your pain, in your next relationship don't give gifts to expect something, give it as a sign of your love and because you want her to feel better. don't go back again and again on this unworthy person, she doesn't deserve so much importance from you, bury her in the past, and be happy and grateful for the lesson you learned and that you don't have that leech in your life.
  7. PLATFORMS

    you can make just a simple prim as ground for them, and some other prims as walls, if you want you can make them transparent, so they wont walk to the sides and fall.
  8. How long have you been here?

    I came here in 2008, 10th of may, at that time I thought I have done everything one can do on the internet, one thing I hadn't tried was playing an online multiplayer game, was looking between the options and saw that SL was free, so I gave it a try. at first I was confused, didn't know how to act seeing people around me, how to communicate, I thought that maybe I would look for someone that look like a hippie, maybe like @Hippie Bowman, they are usually kind people, they would probably help me to get started. one of my first experiences was going to a club where they had a contest for the best furry, I was there with my basic avi, just dancing the best I could with my arrow movements, a dancer, Autumn was her first name, asked me if I was not going to join the contest, I said "what for? I'm not going to win", they motivate me and I join the contest anyway, at the end, surprisingly I won, 750 lindens, that act of kindness from that group of people motivate me to stay, they took me shopping for a bit and gave me landmarks to places with free things, since then I have only been away for a few months here and there for rl reasons, I plan to stay in SL for many years ahead.
  9. This topic is about SL: Forum crushes?

    I always had a special admiration too for @Scylla Rhiadra, intelligent and compassionate, and for @valerie Inshan, so classy gentle lady.
  10. This topic is about SL: Forum crushes?

    alright, I'll confess.. my forum crush since I came here is @Suspiria Finucane, I admire her greatly, her wit, her capacity to be a great friend, the capacity of standing for what is right even against peer pressure, her sense of humor. I stood by her side in her debates, to this day, she always have a love place in my heart. I love @Suspiria Finucane
  11. Videos that make you smile

    what a kind thing to do to save the kitten on the highway.
  12. Why sansar?

    Sansar is HOT right now, after all the anticipation users are starting to explore it, taste it, its a novelty. the talk about Sansar will continue after some time when it comes out of beta, finally users are going to get satisfied with the exploring of the promised land, then its going to normalize and find a point of stability, that I hope is above what is expected. being here General Discussion we can't really say that a topic is off limits here.
  13. Post your SANSAR images HERE

    maybe some of the lacking features will come out after the beta stage, I expected it to be very different from SL, writing everything from scratch and evading some irreversible decisions that Linden Lab can't change about SL, like charging a tax for monetary transactions in Sansar instead of charging for renting land in SL. also the places can be more appreciated in Sansar being by themselves than having other surrounding sims that doesn't fit with the experience you want to give. there is a talk that they are selling some spots to movie makers and rl brands that one to have their own exclusive place just like they vision them, they may add a link on their website to it. I hope it doesn't have excessive hype like when SL started as the 3D internet, a more sober promotion will help other companies to have exactly what they want and what to expect.
  14. Experience with Asperger's Syndrome

    I am autistic, Asperger Syndrome, at least that's how I was categorized in to, I think that many of the posters here have not had any problem communicating with me, in fact, they wouldn't know I was Autistic if the information didn't come to them, in my view, the way my brain is connected, I see myself pretty normal, maybe a little eccentric sometime but not difficult to deal with. usually they have a very normal intelligence and perception of the world, they just had some unusual stuff, mostly in the way they communicate with others, for example in my case I loathed looking at people in the eyes, felt like it was an invasion of privacy, still to this day I avoid looking at people in the eyes and try to do something that looks more "normal", like working on something. in terms on how to relate to them, you can act normally and expect some unusual things here and there in their personality.
