  1. I was friends with a girl that claimed to do it. What she pretty much did was idle at various sex sims until she hit pay dirt. She claimed it wasn't sexual though. The guys that paid her were pretty rare and they did it infrequently, she even admitted this. But when they did it was the equivalent of $100 US. She moved around to various sims and did up a nice skybox each time ... and that was her second life. She also had multiple alts. To each his own...
  2. It seems like this isn't much of a problem anymore since maitreya only clothing is everywhere.
  3. I think the best advice is to learn how to make your own shape and go from there. That was the best advice I was given as a newbie and it still applies today. Your shape is the basis of everything if you are system, mesh parts or totally mesh. There are plenty of shapes on mp that cost 1-10 L. Buy one of those, start tweaking the nose, eyes and mouth. Cam all around yourself, then leave it alone. A few days later try again. You'll quickly find your range of what looks nice. Once you have an idea of how the shape sliders work, then start playing around with skins. When you go back in to make adjustments, you'll naturally gravitate back to your range. The same thing applies to mesh bodies and heads. Play around with them! It's a lot of fun! It's the only way you'll know what's possible.
  4. Another thing I noticed is SL has become secondary to socialization or a springboard for socialization. What I mean by that is, people just kind of stopped doing things inworld like they used to. First came voice, which I didn't mind, but people started spending more time calling you to talk about the same things they would talk about through text, then that escalated to skype. Woe unto you if you didn't have a cam or your mic was broken (before wireless used to ruin cords by running over them)Then came those facebook like features and eventually having a facebook SL page became a thing and to some people having a SL facebook makes you more "real". Lastly, the rise of video games. A lot of people log on to meet up with other people to play video games on Steam (it actually took me a minute to think of that because I'm not a gamer). They'll log on and idle on SL while playing another video game elsewhere. So long story short a lot of people use SL to be social else where. The inception like idea of that is weird and sort of leaves some of us behind. But SL's shortcomings are taken up elsewhere and seem to take up a lot of people's time, more than SL itself does. Mainly its social media and video games though.
  5. I understand what the op is saying. When I first started SL back in 2010, people seemed to be a little more open and friendly. When someone randomly im'd you, it was pretty harmless and most likely you'd have a decent conversation and either you made a new friend or just had a nice chat. Sure there were "sexi timez" people that would hit on you, but they were seemingly a minority. Now...it's a different story. You can still have those things, but it seems less frequent. I remember when I first started a group of people, just saw me and probably took pity on me, but they gave me folders full of shapes, skins and hair. I don't think people do things like that as often. And I wasn't on newbie island either, I tp'd away and didn't know how to get back. I think I ended up in a crappy mall sim somewhere. I still enjoy SL, but I do feel like that little piece of community feeling it had, just isn't there. The mic thing. Most of the time I have mine turned off now and it's mainly due to trolls. I remember being somewhere and a girl was just screaming into her mic, I turned it off, then I found myself getting more and more annoyed at people's mic control andI'll turn it on if someone wants to talk and every once in a while I'll say I don't have one, if a creepy guy im's me.
  6. ...Or it's as simple as one of them copybotted you. Some people have viewers that can do that, your skin, shape, everything you are wearing. Or they have one of those scripts where they can see who created what you have on. But at the speed they did it it sounds like a copy bot. The only thing you really can do is report it, but people that do things like this have many Alts, so it might not do much.
  7. I pop in there sometimes. I also wear the system avi and clothes for fun sometimes it's good to go back to your roots every now and then.
  8. When you say "black" (general you) I'm never quite sure what that means, since black people come in a wide spectrum of colors. When this question is asked, I find it usually means "dark skinned" black. Ok quibble over. Darker skins: Angel Rock is the gold standard of African type skins. Modish just came out with a really nice dark skin. It girls makes some nice dark skins. Lighter skins: L'etre came out of nowhere and his skins are great all around. I think he even has a dark toned one. Mignonne also makes great skins and isn't very well known. Gone from the 2015 list: Glance retired
  9. Some of my best SL friends are people I've approached first. Initiative and not being a weirdo definitely do help, along with common interests. Friendship in SL is an interesting thing.
  10. Try gorgeous dolls in mp. They come in a variety of styles and different hands.
  11. Just a couple of corrections. Not sure how old that article is, so here goes. Most kits for mesh bodies and body parts are free from mesh body makers. Most people have adopted the Omega system which applies the uuid to any part as long as the user has the omega relay or had installed the omega script into the part. Sure making appliers was a pain in the past because you had to make them separately. Some mesh body makers even have the omega system already installed. It's much easier to create now with the omega system. As for the default body, I agree it would've been easier to just come out with avatar 2.0, but LL never did. I think if they did, people still would've complained in some way about it. I think it all comes down to LL making money off the MP transactions, which is a small percentage every time someone buys something, but those little transactions have to add up. The default avi isn't all that bad. A couple of weeks ago, I helped someone do a default avi and I thought it turned out nice. It didn't look as good as a mesh avi, but the difference between a default avi and a mesh avi is definitely noticeable.
  12. We're on here, there just isn't like an African American sim or anything per se. Another girl asked the same thing in lifestyles a couple of weeks ago. We linked up a couple times, chatted, shopped, etc. Then she disappeared. I'll send you a request.
  13. Fiore is a very high quality skin, you should be on your way to an updated look with that.
  14. The skin looks like a glance skin, which is no longer being sold. Deesees or Meghindo might be about as close of a match as you can get. The hair is really nice, but I'm drawing a blank on that one. The shape you might be able to find a similar on mp and tweak it.
