  1. I have a question about being offworld. I am currently without a computer of my own and can only access the forums from the public library. Will my accessing the forms/account dashboard only prevent my avi's extinction, or must I log in inworld occasionally to save myself? How long do I have to keep from going extinct?
  2. I simply don't get it when someone refuses to share where they got a particular item. What's the big deal? I happen to love a particular designer, who just seems to make clothing that looks like it was made for me, and if someone asks me where I got something I wore, I tell them because it might translate to a sale for that store. If I have a LM I even give that out too.
  3. Love sucks. And for those who say 'those who don't have love have never let it in'...BS. The simple fact is there are more people out there willing to lie, use, and manipulate those who do love than those who don't. The worst of the lot are the ones who assure you by saying, 'I would never do that to you'. When they say that, ladies and gentlemen, they're already doing it. So, go ahead and believe in love, if you choose to believe in it. Go ahead and believe you are deserving of love, because you probably are. But does that mean that you will find it, or that you are destined for it? Think a
  4. I guess this would be the most obvious of answers, but if you bought your skin from a store they might have a pale version of the same skin. Lots of skins come in tint variations, so you may be able to simply buy a lighter version of the same name.
  5. Melita is right--makeup is a face tattoo and if any clothing uses a part of the face to attach, it will come off when you apply the makeup. You should check out your attachment points. As for appearing naked to others when you see clothes, I have that problem a lot. Rebaking will usually fix it before you go out (have to do that in a low-lag area; waiting to get to a club and someone telling you you're naked doesn't work very well), but you keep having this problem the Character Test will fix it.
  6. Thank you for your input, Drake. As a DJ I'm sure you'll appreciate what I'm about to say: I will make sure I do not give you or any club you work for my Lindens ever again. And after what you wrote, I wouldn't be surprised if you don't have quite a few singles share that sentiment. Sometimes there is a price to pay for demonstrating a lack of business intelligence.
  7. I'm glad that helped. It is a royal pain to do a Character Test, I hate doing them. Sometimes though that is the last resort before submitting a Help Ticket. Character Tests will fix most serious avi problems (like the Ooompa Loompa look you had), and more often than not, if the Character Test won't fix it, then only the Lindens can.
  8. You misread what I said, Uncommon. PC would be that SL isn't allowed to celebrate any holidays because it might offend someone, much in the same way there are RL workplaces with that rule. I don't want that. What I (and others) also don't want are people who make it very clear that if you're not part of a couple on Valentines Day, then the following applies: 1) You are completely lacking as a person and if they had their way, wouldn't even be allowed to log into SL. 2) You should not be allowed to attend any events, since Valentines Day is for couples only and not singles. And if you sh
  9. Raven, you didn't mention if you'd tried the Character Test, where you load up a default avi and then reassemble yourself one part at a time. If you've never done it, do the following before you do the Character Test: --make notes of the type of shape, eyes, hair, skin, clothes you are supposed to be wearing now. It would be a good idea to make yourself a folder with all these items while you're at it. --Go to the Advanced Menu on the Phoenix Viewer. Under 'Character' there should be a listing for 'character test'. Then choose male or female. An avi will load from your inventory. --Replace
  10. Amethyst--some of the points you mentioned are the very reason why singles on Valentines Day feel like it's open season on them, and are made to feel so unwelcome--not just by couples, but by club staff members, musicians, DJ's, etc.--that for some their only option is to not go out or not even log into SL to socialize. It's one thing if a nightclub only offers one or two events a week and chooses to have a Valentines event a few days before, but there are still clubs in SL who have 1-2 events EVERY DAY, and yet they're still scheduling Valentines events a week out and to the exclusion of ever
  11. With Valentine's Day being two weeks away, I wanted to post this here as plans get underway in SL (and RL) for Valentine's Day parties, dances, etc. I'm sure some of this is going to cause a bit of protest. But speaking as someone who has been single on Valentine's Day (and partially based on some of what I encountered in SL last Valentine's Day), I wanted to offer a few of my suggestions on how to make Valentine's Day a more inclusive experience for everyone, not just couples: 1. Valentines Day is February 14th, not February 7th-14th. It's one thing if you own a store in SL where you are se
  12. I just wanted to post this because I think so many who are starting out fail to understand that Windlight settings can be your friend in photography, even when you're not trying special effects. I took this at a now-defunct sim called Epica, using the 'Moony' WL setting.
  13. "Cheap" being a relative term, I wanted to show off this dress. I am a fan of G Sloane Couture in Cedarwood, and this dress was a Monday Mania item I bought for L$50. You should always look at stores that offer these special weekly deals if you're looking to dress well 'on the cheap'. But one of the reasons I love this store is that you can get beautiful dresses there for less than you find with many stores in SL. Styles of dresses and gowns that can cost L$500-L$1,000 at some stores can be as low as L$300.
  14. I am fiercely loyal to Redgrave skins. The only concession I've made to my RL person on my avi is my skin, which is pale with freckles, but has an underlying ruddiness (the benefit of Irish ancestry). I was fortunate to find this kind of skin at Redgrave, with visible freckles, and a strange added benefit--my SL skin has a beauty mark in almost exactly the same spot as all the women in my RL family. Total coincidence, yes, but it's there. With that being said, I absolutely swear by Amacci's eye makeup tattoos. It's really one of the best values in SL when you can find makeup that looks as
