  1. I have heard of overzealous club owners and staff - it's a shame, because it doesn't reflect well on their business. Second, just because no one asked the OP about showing a pic about the dress, doesn't mean that people were not curious about the type of dress it was. I think it's natural to be curious and want some visuals as to what dress was so controversial that it got someone kicked out of a social place. Pictures are not a bad thing, people. Third, I have noticed how some people are so jaded in these parts that they assume the worse and go to town on some people, making their post count increase in the process so they can get a title/badge for SL forums. I don't think the OP was using the forums to advertise...not a lot of people come on the forums like that. It would be more effective to advertise in a group in world that caters to fashion advertisement, or post on Facebook. So her talking about something that happened to her = advertisement. Okay, sure. And I think it takes a lot of restraint not to go off on someone in a forum when they are basically getting ganged up on...which is what this looks like on the outside looking in.
  2. I agree with Anetta. Usually when people start off with phrases like "expand my portfolio", it's because they need practice and practicing the art trumps making money commerically. Once the portfolio is built up, people will be willing to pay once they see the range and quality of the work. I don't think it's particulary cool to have people pay a mandantory fee for the OP considers to be practice work. Either make it free or advertise it as a special sale, and leave out the purpose of having discounted prices. This is not advice - just me reading a thread on a forum and making a comment since I have participated in what the OP is doing with other photographers, and it was for free.
  3. If you are talking about your inworld inventory, it should be the same no matter where you access sl. The info is stored in SL. However if you have chat logs, pictures, and even viewer settings that is stored on your hard drive, if you switch computers, that information would not be there.
  4. Many clubs provide on-site training on how to emote/use descriptive language as you are dancing on the pole. They would want you to have a nice avatar appearance (skin, hair, accessories, etc.) and of course follow the rules of the venue.
  5. I would like to know more about tumblr roleplay, too. Googling doesn't exactly help cause it's a huge amount of information. If the OP does indeed roleplay, I'm sure a couple of links can be provided to give everyone an idea of what it is. As for Second Life being a game...some people considered SL a game just because it's entertainment online. Others do not consider it as such because in most games, there is not a platform for interaction to the degree SL has. Also, when people say it's a game, they in a way downplay all the things SL has. People have the ability to make money and cash out to RL, and use it as a means to support themselves there. That alone would make it more than any game. Graphics - people are always looking for logo makers and the like. Or if you like taking pictures, there are those who look for photographers. I encourage you to take the first month or so just to get familar with SL, because it's hard to get jobs in SL when you don't even know how to manipulate prims or even dress properly. If you are serious about wanting to get to know SL, I don't mind being a mentor. However if you are not willing to learn how SL works, then we would be only wasting each other's time.
  6. Yes - windlights are your friend. I use AnaLu studio 5, but CawL is good too. I don't see why anyone would need facelights with all the different lighting options now. You can always message me inworld if you need help tweaking your look...but would need to see who are you comparing yourself to first.
  7. The first thing that I do with anyone who is not sure what their size is in mesh is to take them to a store like Maitreya. Stores like that were one of the first to come out with mesh, and they use standard size. Once you know your size in standard size, then you can go and shop at other stores. Like someone mentioned before, each size is made according to certain specifications in: Women: Body Fat Torso Muscle Breast Size Love Handles Belly Size Leg Muscle Butt Size Saddle Bags Men: Body Fat Belly Size Torso Muscle Love Handles Leg Muscle Butt Size Saddle Bags Package Pectorals So in theory, you should be able to make changes in other areas without it affecting the mesh. For instance, you can change body thickness to make yourself bigger without using body fat. One of the issues that I have with the template mesh is that it is not rigged correctly. I have noticed in pants that there is a gap on the left side of the waist, and on the right it looks like I'm too big for it. Sometimes I wish I could just yank it over so it can fit lol. Other times I have noticed that in order for me to fit into the mesh, I would have to change a slider other than what is stated above, which is no good. I don't buy mesh from those places. Also, because the designer is not making the mesh, the alpha isn't always exactly right, either. I hear people say they have so many shapes for different mesh clothing...why? Just make one good shape for mesh clothing, and then shop at quality stores that have mastered rigging items. Not everyone's shape can fit into the standard sizes of mesh, but I think more people would be able to if they understood what the real issue is, and address it.
  8. Mine were sent to me. If the store doesn't have a place where you can get them delievered I would write the owner a nc and show that you have the Tangos and would like an update.
  9. If you are new to SL, you most likely will not have the skills needed to model someone's products to make them appealing for customers to purchase, You will need good skin, hair, and the ability to edit your shape (for mesh) and/or prims to fit clothing to your body. It would also be good if you had an idea of what poses are most flattering to the items that you would be modeling. Trry getting some decent items from group gifts and hunts first if you want free items.
  10. With the way SL is, I wouldn't buy anything that I wanted to be a permament fixture as no copy. I remember there was a time SL was eating all of my no copy stuff upon me rezzing it. If your items were returned to you and something went wrong, then you would be out of luck on that item. The reselling idea wouldn't work (unless maybe if it was a gatcha item) because all people would have to do is go look to see who created the item, and then purchase from that person.
  11. Why would you give them more money after they proved to be shady in the first place? I would have asked them why did they send the things back when there was still time left on the parcel, and asked for a refund, and started looking for another place to rent.
  12. You can try Lionheart - http://www.lionheartsl.com/ My old place of work was on one of their sims...used to have fun driving around to different places.
  13. When a DJ contacts the person who needs a DJ, I would expect them at the time to state what sort of music they play, their payment policy, and inquire about the days/times. If the club management likes the DJ, then they meet up and finalize the details. When I was assistant manager, I looked at DJ's profiles to see if 1. they played at other places (and what day/time) 2. how much would it be for 2 hours and is it a fixed fee + tips, tips only, or to cover the difference if the DJ did not receive a certain amount of tips 3. did they have their own stream 4. did they have their own fan group I think the point in posting is to see who can they get, so they want to keep it general as possible. Then when the DJ and management comminicate inworld, then they will discuss things further. Popular DJs tend to have managers who do all the leg work for the DJ so all the DJ has to do is show up and play.
  14. You can friend me inworld if you want. We can go shopping and stuff
  15. In elementary school, I learned it in second grade, and then after that we were required to write in cursive instead of print. I don't think it takes much time to learn at all. How do people sign documents without writing in cursive? I think with all of this budget cuts in the education system, children are being cheated out of a well rounded education. I even heard that some schools cut out phys ed. and then they wonder why childhood obseity is on the rise.

  17. I think that size is way too small to run a venue. Your best bet is to hook up with someone who has as similar idea so you can partner with them, or someone who would be willing to finance you. Maybe talk to this person? http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Inworld-Employment/Want-to-run-a-Club/m-p/2187491/highlight/true#M12887
  18. Hi! My name is Monica, and I am looking for a female roommate to live with me at my beach house. I blog, model, and from time to time work with business owners on marketing or managing their businesses. I love dancing, and I have friends who work at nightclubs as dancers or DJs. Shopping (or window shopping) is probably the number one thing I do on Second Life. My place is located at the corner on a little bit less than 1/8th of a homestead sim. It's pretty quiet, and lag free. Tier is set up to be paid weekly, and I will go into detail with that with those who I talk with inworld. Even though my place is on a moderate sim, I would request that only those who are 18 and over apply. You would be able to use up to 50 prims/LI to decorate your room and to add some special touches. This is because you would have access to other parts of the house, and it's fully furnished. This includes: - Pool area - Jetski area - Living Room - Balcony and Patio area I have thrown parties from time to time, so it would be cool if my roommate was not uber shy and would like to talk and interact some with other people. Because my place is on a homestead, I use mesh to reduce the prims/land impact and to get the most out of the space (the house is not mesh though). If mesh is a problem for you, then this living arrangement may not be the best one. If you are interested, just send me a IM or a NC inworld - Monica Querrien.

  20. I would just let it go and move on. There are some crazy and/or skeptical people in SL, and if you get caught up in it you will be just like them. Just wish her good luck in her SL and remember the good memories of the older sim.
  21. If everyone used the proper windlight, there would be no need to wear facelights at all. As for wanting people to see them, people can see if a person is very nicely put together, or needs work. Proper lighting isn't going to make someone look drastically different if everyone is being viewed in the same lighting.
  22. What would be the theme of the magazine? It seems like it's a lot of stuff put together with no unified theme of any kind.
  23. Free makeovers at Fashion de Rigueur! ***Note: The term "free" refers to services provided, not the actual clothing. Please read further for more information. Who are we? Fashion de Rigueur is an initiative that was created to educate others on how to look their best in Second Life. What do we do? Our workshops, which will start soon, are designed to help those with no or limited knowledge of the basics of SL fashion. Through our workshops, avatars can feel confident to walk the grid knowing that they possess the knowledge of how to put their best foot forward. To help us with our grand opening, Fashion de Rigueur will be having avatar makeovers, in which the before and after photos will be made available inworld and on our website. We are looking for people who fit into the following categories: 1. Residents who do not have Lindens to buy items. These residents will be made over with quality free items that are currently available on the grid. 2. Residents who have a budget. These residents will be made over within the boundaries of their budget, and may use free items to stretch their Lindens a bit. 3. Residents who have no restrictions on their budget. These residents will be made over using high quality items while making the most of their money so that they do not overspend. After the grand opening, these services will be available at the regular price, so this is a great opportunity to take advantage of if you are interested. How do I sign up for the makeovers? Please visit out inworld location for more information and to pick up an application. These applications MUST be filled out completely and returned to the mailbox or else they will not be considered. Is there a limit as to how many residents can apply for this offer? How long will the offer last? All applications will be considered on a rolling basis. The number of residents selected will depend on the volume of applications received, and how many residents fit into each of the categories stated above. Once we have enough avatars for all of the categories, the offer will end. Only the residents selected to participate will be contacted with further instructions. Where is Fashion de Rigueur located?
