  1. Yes, trying to remember that the hair is Lea, the dress is Lia and the shoes are Leonie can be a bit much some days. My inventory is like a women's university crossed with the exploded laboratories of three mad scientists and a Victorian haberdashery.
  2. No, Phil, that's not what Penny is saying. What she's saying is that with clever use of rezzers and doors, someone can have several sim's worth of content on a medium-sized parcel. Basically, she's set the bar for "getting full value" from a parcel much higher than most of us have dreamt of. The rezzers need their items to be mod, so no-mod items mean that "full value" can't be utilised.
  3. So how many people keep lists of atrociously textured things and refuse to ever set foot in the store or MP because of it? I'd wager the number is vanishingly small. Keep in mind, this 'reason' only works if the boycotter refuses to look at the creator's other work and takes steps to avoid it when they might otherwise come across it. If I'm understanding Penny correctly, part of her campaign is to refute some of the unfounded reasons why creators think no-mod is a good idea. I'm far from convinced that this one has any grounding to it.
  4. IMO a better argument than insecurity and immaturity is the fact that no creator has complete control over how another person's computer will render an item. The idea of full control is an illusion. This isn't saying that maturity and confidence don't come into play in terms of recognising and accepting this. They do factor in. But the creators who need to hear it will likely close off to the entire argument rather than recognise these things in themselves.
  5. Why is it so dark in here? Oh right, need to change the time of day.
  6. Like I said, all advice and info on this is subject to change Is it through the same link to the Aditi dashboard? That was the trickiest part to figure out when I did it year before last.
  7. The password change thing stopped working a good while back. When I got my building alt onto the beta grid (summer 2016 I think), the procedure was to submit a ticket and ask for your inventory to be synced. For mesh upload rights on the beta grid, you need to do the mesh upload test again - but from your beta grid dashboard. Try this link, log in top right and maneuver through the Dashboard/Account page to Mesh Upload Status and the mesh test. https://secondlife.aditi.lindenlab.com/ The mesh upload test should be straightfoward. The Payment Info on File acts like it needs to be done
  8. The current trend towards air-brushed fashion model "perfection" doesn't appeal to me. Of my dearest friends inworld, one wears an ancient skin and the other has a mesh body whose textures only sometimes rez fully for me. They're lovely people and I wouldn't change either of them for the world. My 8 year old main is pretty stable in her appearance, but my newish building alt is often in a state of flux as I go through periods of tweaking but usually get distracted by things which interest me more like talking with friends or building something. So if I meet someone new whose avatar i
  9. You're a star Mads x. It's howling a gale outside but isn't due to go below freezing until Thursday night. I think parts of the U.S. might need them more. It's very kind of you to think of this. You too, Ceka x. Now I'm imagining Garfield roaring around the neighbourhood breathing fire. It's not the wind after all
  10. I'm cranky as stars after spending the day waiting to appear as a witness, only for it to be moved to March cause they ran out of time. Not that I blame the court. I want to metaphorically bash together the heads of the two idjits who caused us to be there in the first place but I'm far too exhausted. Anyone want to get properly angry for me? Maybe Maddy could be a sweetheart and fireball them
  11. I agree with you about no-mod, Qie, but the whole props thing is already stretched to its limit compensating for shortcomings in the perms system. Asking it to go farther to be open to changes on the order of Experiences is asking too much IMO. That still doesn't excuse the creeping shift towards no-mod and the passive acceptance of it though. Maybe it's related to how complacent or resigned many of us have become about tossing stuff out in RL when its design doesn't allow for efficient re-use or repairs. The free market hasn't been all that grand about providing better choices either.
  12. Secondarily to Callum's good advice and help, If you have it set so IMs go to email, don't forget to watch your email in case anyone IMs you. There's a window of time in which you can reply back to the IM via email without having to go inworld. Good luck in gettting this sorted.
  13. Interesting. So you weren't asking for other people's opinions then? You were just setting us up? Things like that might be why you're having a harder time in SL than most of us. It's not kind or fair to others.
  14. I've no doubt that there are large numbers of avatars behaving in rude and petty ways in SL. However, I find it much easier to avoid them inworld than anywhere else on the internet, including the forums. The closest I get to it most days is if someone tries to start things in a group. Doesn't happen very often, it's usually short-lived and it's always easily escaped. If you don't like the people you're running into, go different places and do things different things. There's a lovely generosity amongst many builders/creators, especially those of us who are doing it simply because we enjoy
  15. It might have to do with the LoD system not being set up for things of that size which need to be viewed from that sort of distance. There are tricks and compromises, but they're far from obvious and they don't always work.
  16. Remember to keep all the not-for-my-body stuff too. Just in case you reincarnate in a different one.
  17. It's more and more of a no-win situation for a lot of us who might want to make clothing. Use templates, someone complains. Take on all the tasks of trying to craft, size and rig your own mesh and open yourself up to a thousand more complaints because the shoulders are wrong, or it doesn't move right or it doesn't work with someone's favourite mesh body. I can only begin to imagine the pressure some are under to keep turning out new stock for the sake of events.
  18. /me tries to decide whether we're being trolled or Donald Trump has discovered SL
  19. Bitsy was supposed to be a character. Then someone gave me hair that looked an awful lot like mine in RL and she's been an eternally youthful approximation of me ever since. This is no way stops me experimenting with clothing and costuming and other flights of fancy.
  20. My main is currently dressed like a 60s hippy and my building alt is adorable as a baby dragon. She'll engulf anyone who wants to complain in a ball of fire. Thank you Abranimations Advent xx Do what makes YOU happy. If conforming to others' expectations make you genuinely happy, go for it. If you'd rather do something else, do that. Some people get their happiness from scolding others, so let them carry on. Those of us who displease them are providing a valuable service.
  21. A tangent and not really relevant, but being inworld after reading this I remembered that part of the reason why pale skins feel like Bitsy is because of how blasted hard it used to be to find much which wasn't beach-babe tanned. Being pale was my wee rebellion against the mainstream trends of the day. It's much easier now fortunately. I still don't fit in with the mainstream trends clothes-wise but at least I have enough choice with skin I can avoid heavy make-up. Here's to diversity in its many forms. We all benefit from it.
