    Shopping History

    If it's within the past few years, I would check the store, if you know it, for a redelivery. That will sort things from the specific store to the top usually.

    System avatar - out of style?

    Ahh but that depends on if you liked your system head in the first place. I hated all the angles and stretching. I couldn't get a good closeup at all without a lot of postwork. I still do some postwork on the pictures I take, but I'm not spending a ton of time just making my avatar look smoother. I spent a ton of time trying to eradicate the angles in world, but never with any complete success.

    System avatar - out of style?

    I've seen many default resource hogs. In fact, if I'm out and see someone way, way, way over the complexity limit I set (I keep it near 100K) I get nosey and amp complexity up to see WTH they have on. And EVERY SINGLE TIME, it's been a default avatar. Every...single...time. So far the highest has been over 3 million complexity, Her flexi skirt alone had 5 layers so it poofed out. Unless for a photo, I keep myself between 30K and 75K.

    Which Do You Prefer COPY or TRANSFER?

    Copy. I've lost transfer only items in SL glitches. Still heart broken over a few of them.

    System avatar - out of style?

    If I tease my friend when he's on, it's always more about learning Windlight, since his occupation IRL is photography and he wants to be better in SL. But he has other things outside of SL that keep him busy, so I just learn to enjoy our in SL chats. I talk to him a few times a day on Steam though.

    System avatar - out of style?

    I don't think it's about change for changes sake though. The argument always seems to be about how all mesh heads look alike, all have duck lips and in this case, since the person that started this doesn't even have a bento viewer, we're pretty much all blobs to them. There is a snobbery often attached of "I refuse to go mesh and am therefore somewhat better for sticking to my guns." If the person is otherwise a good person, I couldn't give a rat's patoot what their avatar looks like. But to suggest I am somewhat less because I like the look of mesh for myself, just rubs me the wrong way. To add: My longest and best online friend hasn't changed his look since about 2009. While he has expressed an interest in updating eventually, I have never made the suggestion to him. His friendship means so much more to me then what his avatar looks like. Yes I notice, but after about 5 seconds, we have too much to talk over for me to care one way or the other.

    I saw more lookalikes of my old default avatar then I have of my current bento headed avatar. And duck lips were definitely around forever on default avatars. Not to mention the 'deer in the headlights" look I usually see around the eyes. I don't care if you want to stay with default, many of my closest friends are still using default, but this constant bashing is just stupid. We all have different ideas of beauty and SL helps us embrace it. As for Vitruvian Man (yes I did peek at the profile), while Di Vinci was a genius, he was also a man of his times, a white European male. Since then, we know a lot more of the world and the cultures in it. Beauty that doesn't even come close to his ideal can be found all over the world.

    Secondlife Dating Questionnaire

    Wow that is truly sexist. I've usually been the one with the place for my guys to call home, I've usually bought more for them then they have for me, and they haven't been poor, just different and I point blank refused any money they tried to give towards my land, but I figured my land, my bill. I don't think it's asking guys too much to show they are somewhat vested in me or SL, and at least want to come close to looking like we are playing in the same world. And yes a well crafted default male av can look pretty good. I'm talking about the guys that don't even try but expect me to look perfect and be ready for pixel poking just because they said "Hi, you look great."

    Ridable Horse Recommendations, Please

    Oh and you can demo for quite a while before buying. I think over the entire sim. It's been a while since I bought mine

    Ridable Horse Recommendations, Please

    There may be others by now, but last I heard Water Horse was the only bento horse. You get a very nice, realistic riding experience. Look for the HUGE barn https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Water Horse/39/54/22 MP: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/products/search?utf8=✓&search[category_id]=&search[maturity_level]=GMA&search[keywords]=Water+Horse

    premium membership is it worth it?

    Same thing here, to the point myself and others ended up pointing out this perk of premium in the Scandalize group. One said she's been trying to get there since yesterday. BTW another store I didn't see you mention, is having a similar hunt but for melons, Safira.

    ...Im thinking about creating a 1950's RP...

    I'm not sure how I'd be in rp, but I'd love to hangout in a 50's sim. I am always on the lookout for a good sim from that era.

    what happen to SL?

    For me to read a notecard, it has to be a product I know may have instructions for use that I need to keep. If something just says READ ME, I'll likely toss it, since most of those in the past few years are just thank yous with an LM. Actually, except for ones that I need the special instructions for, I'm quite likely to toss all, even if it says I may win 10,000L. Part of me thinks that sounds a bit like finding out I have 3 million in a Nigerian account. Sorry.

    MP Gachas

    Tried it and have 17 pages, and think I know part of the issue. If you stop at Intimates, you do get many hits from the store itself. If you go one more level into Lingerie, it all becomes gachas. So in this case it may be how she listed her intimate items. Regardless, I do still think gachas should have their own subsection, and demos should be select-able from the page the for sale item is on.

    MP Gachas

    BTW just did Callum's refinement to my original search and have 67 items left, of which all but a few are gacha items.
