  1. I live on the mainland so I get lots of random visitors and I kind of like that random interaction, if you prefer not to be bothered by stangers just get yourself a security system which will allow you to ban indivduals or non-group members, you can set them in various ways. Likely it was a random explorer so I wouldn't get too upset if I were you
  2. You might also be trying to teleport into regions that are overcrowded (like nightclubs or shopping centers), try searching your map for uncrowded regions and see if it still happens.
  3. I think perhaps in this case a Flow Chart might work better than a spreadsheet...
  4. I think your best bet would be to send the creator an IM or notecard and ask this question. Hopefully someone here might know as well.
  5. If you don't want to do the Mens Stuff hunt then just go to their lounge, there is a large wall of freebies just for men. I don't have the slurl handy but here's their webpage: http://stuff-sl.com/menstuff/
  6. I think they might be cute too with actual hair textures... the key to selling them would be to find the right "key words" and giving samples to the fashion bloggers - they could be the next big thing! Good Luck!
  7. Ohhh voice... such a fantasy bust, I have voiced reluctantly with both friends and lovers. Most happily with friends as the conversation flows freely. Somehow with lovers its just awkward, I prefer to type... like the difference between receiving a hand written love note via post and a text message - its more sexy when its well written.
  8. Try Nomine either in the marketplace or inworld , gothy/bloody distressed skins, I think you will find what you are looking for.
  9. I have to say, I have not experienced this feeling, I started as a brunette, then blond, sometimes red, sometimes black. I do the same with skins, I love to change up my look - but always feel myself, I wish I could do it in rl! Mostly blond these days (close to rl) but still love to wear fantasy skins, ethnic skins, delicious mermaid fantasy looks. I try to update my avi about once a year, usually around my rez day... I am super picky about skin details and finding a new one that feels right takes awhile and usually requires a bit of shape shifting to make it fit right. Mostly around the mouth/lips, it seems most skins are geared toward a small, bow shaped lip with the upper lip larger or equal to the lower lip I personally prefer a wider lip with the lower lip more full (closer to me in rl). so some skins just don't fit right. Once I have a skin I like then the sky is the limit - I always feel like me and I love to explore different avi's/hair/skin tone/whatever... I think you just have to explore and enjoy whatever makes you happy - if you feel uncomfortable, shelve that look or hair for awhile - but don't be afraid to explore how wearing something outside your comfort zone (shape/hair/outfit) changes your outlook and/or the way that others react to you. Its fascinating to me the way that people (not friends) will react to the different looks I where - the mermaid outfits are often a conversation starters, smiles.
  10. Another suggestion would be to join a hunt with a theme that sounds interesting to you. You will often see signs in front of a store that show what hunts they are participating in. One hunt I am doing right now has 150 stores and most of them are really awesome and new to me. Its a fun way to pass time in sl and the group chat can be amusing. Here is a blog about hunts... http://slhunts.wordpress.com/ ETA: Most hunts right now will be holiday themed but you might still find some fun stuff and new stores. I would recommend grid-wide hunts over store or sim hunts - you will get more variety.
  11. Before you pass the picture on I would suggest that you right click it, select edit and check the permissions. I wouldn't pass a picture without disabling the copy, mod and/or transfer permissions. Otherwise you have no way of knowing where that picture could end up.
  12. go to www.secondlife.com and log in with your name and password, on the left click account and scroll down to "cancel account" click there and follow the directions. Keep in mind that if you cancel your account and change your mind later it will be difficult to reactivate and restore any inventory you have. If you are a basic account you can just delete your friends list, put a note on your profile that you are gone and your basic account will stay active indefinitely in case you change your mind. If you are a premium account sell or abandon your land and change your account back to basic and then you can keep your inventory and just dissappear.

    Homes

    Bottom line is that you need to buy or rent land to put your house on. The size and prim count of the house will determine how much property you need to purchase (or rent). Everything in SL is made of prims which are the building blocks so to speak of sl. Some houses are 30 prims or less and made to fit on the "starter" parcels of 512 sq meters - and then everything becomes more elaborate and more expensive as you add prims and footprint size. There are houses that have a small-ish footprint but the prim count mandates a big parcel. The first thing you need to know is how big the house is, it should say in the information what the footprint size is. This will tell you the minimum size property you will have to buy (or rent) so that it will fit. Then there should also be information on how many prims the house (with or without furnishings) is. If you buy a house that is small but heavy in prims you might need a bigger parcel for the prim allowance. I would recommend buying land directly from LL over renting from estate owners but there are varying opinions on that as well. Its fairly complicated and it would be good for you to do a bit of research before investing or renting... here is a place to start: http://secondlife.com/land/
  14. I agree with the other replies and also wanted to add that anything this person gave you that you wear, shoes, jewelry, hair, could have these kinds of "trackers" built-in. I had a friend who had the same issue, it turned out to be the shoes. There are also online tracking huds available but they do not have location or listening capabilities, they can tell you if someone is online but not where they are.
  15. The trend is definitely towards shorter, curvier shapes but its easy to find a world of alternatives. I agree that its not a good idea to purchase a shape that isn't modifiable - each time I purchase a new skin I have to tweak my shape a bit, especially the lips it seems. Anyway, you might start perusing the fashion feeds, most bloggers will list what skin and shape they are wearing (although many use their own personal shapes that are not for sale). Here's a couple of links: http://slstyleacademy.com/ http://iheartsl.com/ http://virtualfashionfeed.com/tag/fashion-feed-of-sl/ Good luck!
  16. Try searching the marketplace for "helmet"... just kidding (I tried and didn't find it). :matte-motes-wink:
  17. Hi and welcome to the forums. Hopefully the clothing you are wearing came with different layer options. Wear the panties on the underwear layer (should have a symbol that looks like panties in front of it in your inventory list). Then wear the pantyhose on the pants layer (should have a symbol of long pants next to it) then search for a socks layer of the pantyhose which will cover your feet (has a picture of socks in front of it). Wearing clothing on different layers overlays them wearing clothing on the same layer causes the new item to replace the one you were wearing. I don't know why changing your shirt or pubic hair would cause your hair to dissappear! eta: Here are some tutorials that might help: http://secondlife.com/my/whatnext/video-tutorials/index.php?lang=en-US If the videos don't pop up type "clothing layers" in the search box, there are two that look helpful.
  18. It should be easy enough to make your own either by typing up a sign on your word program or taking a picture of a real world sign and uploading the texture. Try googling "making a sign in second life" and you will find lots of tutorials and tips.
  19. I apologise ahead of time because I did not read thru all of the well written responses that came before mine but just want to say that my approach to sl is that you have to let a lot of what goes on roll off your back, focus on the people, events and activities that give you joy and feed your soul and let the rest go. If your SL is negative and making you unhappy you are doing it wrong - you are the one to blame - its a second life you can choose anything and everything... you have to ask yourself why your sl isn't joyful. This answer is within yourself, not sl.

Click the HUD and go to "setting>detailed>condition" and you should be able to just set it to pregnant. yeah, Ariel, I know that I could do that but I guess that the point is... that I don't want to be a single mom. I was hoping that my bf would want to rp our being a family. He may come around yet. He's just beginning to use the L word. I've suggested the HUD & he wasn't interested so I'm not going to push it. I'll suggest it again at some pt. but not yet. I don't want to initiate a pregnancy just to have to cancel it or else be dropped like a hot potato! LoL I want for us to both want a baby. Jeanne Most guys in sl are here for escape, they are happy to role play romance and even marriage. But really how many guys are aching to roleplay fatherhood and commitment in sl - either they already have kids in rl or are far from wanting them. It doesn't have to stop you from having what you want, but don't expect any average man to share your fantasy or be thrilled about role playing parenthood with you. There are some out there for sure that love to rp family but few and far between and there will be trade-offs. Its a lot like rl if that is what you want, you will have to take your time, be picky, spend a lot of time getting to know the person, marry and then spend some more time before bringing children into the picture. All the while keep in mind that this person might (and is likely) not take it as seriously as you are. I don't mean to burst your romantic bubble about sl, I am just speaking from experience.
  21. Try clearing cache before relogging or once inworld hitting the keys: CTRL+Alt+R (triggers a rebake) or changing outfits or teleporting to an empty region.
  22. IMHO your current skin is a bit heavy handed in the shadowing around the breasts but thats personal opinion and there are a lot of skins with that kind of detail. It depends how old it is - if its over three years old I would start shopping for a new one (which is both tedious and fun) - read reviews of new skins on the fashion blog/feeds and start exploring options. Buy lots of demos until you find one you are comfortable with. I change skins about once a year because I like to update my look but I spend a lot of time shopping until I find something with all the elements I like, that doesn't change my look to much. I do tweak my shape with each new skin.
  23. If you are talking about making a shape for system skirts this video might help: You just have to modify your shape to make your hips very slim and then you can wear them without looking like a Mack Truck
  24. Love this look! Where are the sweater and jeans from?
  25. Awwww - thanks Valerie, I think your avie is awesome too and your photography blows me away - the skirt I picked up at the Japan Relief shopping thingy, I will try to remember to take a note of the creator when I get in world and let you know - I love it too!
