  1. Maybe that's due to closing the teen grid down.... but well even it that was still around to keep them off the main grid, I'm sure RP would be as the same calibur as it is today.. or lack there of.
  2. Current inventory size is: 111,550.... and it's not mostly hair, clothes or shoes... but building and texture supplies instead. Oi. vey.
  3. Klytyna, okay that example that you gave is scary! And I fail to understand his reasons behind what he does... it certainly isn't very nice. Amanda, yes I agree with you Role play is a collaborative effort, it's not an autobiography. About people seemingly to feel less obligated to try and maintain their role and the OOC peace, it seems as that has increased drastically in recent years. And maybe with the 'RP' huds that are out there, that could have something to do with it, making people lazy and focusing more on leveling up those huds rather than on the actual people with characters. I'm not being negative, I'm just being 'realistic' as it seems that Role play as a whole more emotionally challenging these days, because our emotions and feelings can't tell the difference and many people forget we are -all- human, regardless of our avatars. Def its about a Story and not winning, very well said, Amanda
  4. Your post has made me wonder, if it's possible for those types of roleplayers that you spoke about, have some form of addiction to making themselves feel good with the result of making others feel bad?
  5. I agree Bloodlines totally killed the 'real' Vampire scene in SL and it's turned any finding of genuine decent vampiristic RP insanely impossible. Gauze has some really nice updated (including Omega appliers for mesh bodies and heads) pale, white skin tones. I bought mine when they were on sale three to four years ago. So, the thing is... and I'll say again... the skins are out there. Just that due to I suppose, 'it's not vogue' people -choose- not to wear them for fear of 'standing out' or being called a silly stupid name. But yet, they will instead, have big asses, boobs that can knock out satellites and so many particles surrounding their questionable avatars to lag a sim. Yeah... it's so bad being a pale white skinned Vampire.
  6. Ahh. I'm sorry. I'm guessing that everything here must be rainbow pooping unicorns? YAY! Let's all pretend to be stupidly happy:)
  7. We all have selective memories, and nothing is ever perfect, as perfection doesn't exist; however, that shouldn't prevent those from trying to resurrect the familiar. As I had stated previously, skins are more detailed and advanced than they were, including the paler tones... I'm not saying 'Oh yeah go and get a 2006 skin.' No. So, I think you've missed the point. Thanks for reading!
  8. I remember the days when 'real' SL Vampires ruled the grid. Some days it was logging on to a wall to wall white to pale skin tones - no gimmicks, no pyramid scheme. And the only clans involved were solid true RP ones that reflected a sense of morality and original style. There was more loyalty back then too. When someone said something, they actually meant it. No soul count involved, no huds, no taken advantage of noobs just to get their 'soul'. Just people coming together with the same like mind of enjoying the people -behind- the monitor. A kinship of acceptance. It was a beginning for us all. People helping each other with an act of patience, without expecting something in return. Maybe it was because the two grids were split up back then: The main grid and the teen grid, which closed in 2010. I'll say nothing more on that particular misfortune. Maybe it was because back then there was more a sense of community and people regarded SL as a virtual world and not a 'game'. Maybe it was because people weren't so jaded, but excited and laughed with each other instead of at each other, especially with the favorite shoe in crotch upon a TP or the six hour long update Wednesdays or the Ruth-parties. I've been on SL for 11 years. A lot has changed virtually and in reality. I always thought there would be some form of consistency virtually, but no. It changes as quickly as and drastically as IRL. Emotions and feelings can not tell the difference between the virtual and reality; only our minds can. And regarding that, I greatly fear that more and more people will use that to really turn SL into a 'game', a game that reaches out and disheartens those that wish it was like the old days. A game to reach through the monitor to toy with the emotions and feelings of others on the other side of the monitor. Where have all the pale skin Vampires gone? Yes, the grid has come along way since the days of system skirts with glitch pants, sculpty skirts and flexi wings. Skins of today are more advanced and detail that's true, but it is still possible to create the look of the past with upgraded features, but yet, why is this not done? Why has pale skin been traded for tan when it comes to Vampires? SL graphics have improved greatly with windlight settings, internal graphic settings, there is no need to fear being blinded by an avatar with paler, white skin. Even the days of the face lights are gone. As SL has grown through the years, so have it's residents. It is amazing as to what people can create and it is amazing as to what people will buy in order to create their virtual selves, which is good and I'm not judging. I just want to remind those out there that just because the past is not the present, does not mean that it's forbidden to try to recapture the past. Where have all the pale skin Vampires gone? I have spent a lot of time, looking at Vampire groups in group search. Profiling the founders and seeing that they are not active in SL. Even how the old Vampire groups were worded in their description it is easy to see that there was truly a more fluent want of connection; a sincere one with no agenda. The Vampire related groups of today that are current are those that promise 'We will treat you like family. Be one of us. Join us. We want you to be apart of us. All is welcome.' However, once one falls victim to those false promises, they are left with no sense of family and the likelihood of attaining that in SL these days is more than just slim, it's a lost hope. I don't think it's fair nor right for a person who wants a SL family, that uses SL as an outlet to attain external friendships/connections, that they should pay with lindens or pay by joining a hud system that only serves the small minority, those that have the most soul counts within that 'family.' And let's face it, once they have what they want, whatever you may need, even if it is just to chat, you are forgotten. Many will say that 'it's just a game' or 'you take it too seriously.' Well, no. It is not 'just' a game. And perhaps those that say such should consider that they do not take it seriously enough. Where have all the pale skin Vampires gone? Please, please return... those that miss and love you need you now. Kind Regards.
  9. Why do some people take advantage of the kindness of others? What is the point. Just a wonderment.
  10. During many years of experience within the RP community in SL, different genres, different RP sims, and having different experiences there is one thing that seems to continually stand out: No matter the rules when it comes to OCC and IC, why is it that there are some encounters that leave the player wondering as to why was their personal OOC is information used against them ICly? For a long time I merely thought this was trying to 'level up' in the roleplay, so to speak, but in recent times, I've encountered more of this and am left wondering do these types of OOC people use RP as a form to express their emotional sadism to get a thrill of making someone else feel bad OOCly. So bad, that it makes that person leave the RP because they have been pushed out of it due to feeling as though they have been 'used'. This isn't meta-gaming or god-moding, it goes beyond that. I'm not trying to start a debate. I'm just wondering the thoughts of other RP'ers on this. Kind Regards.
  11. So many times lots of people have wanted the same. I wish it could be just so simple.
  12. What do you do if you are attacked by a circus mob? Go for the juggler.
  13. I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me.
  14. Mmm I know what you mean, Xinian and I agree with your second sentence. I'm not sure what is going on, but I can only guess it has to do with the quality of people that log on these days. More and more people are referring to SL as a 'game' and it's not. I've been in SL for 11 years and never once have I thought it a game. Older residents tend to consider SL as a virtual world, in which it is, but the younger residents reflect that SL is a game. I think that is the problem.
  15. I told the doctor I broke my arm in two places. He told me not to go into those places.
  16. Another reason for a sudden departure from SL, is the person will retreat to their alt (for whatever reason) having you no idea that they had an alt in the first place.
  17. That's good advice, because our emotions/feelings can not tell the difference between the virtual and reality; only our minds can.
  18. I remember that episode at the time, thus why I was standing there trying to figure out where the rider of this motorcycle would have placed a cane or some type of walking assist as he did not have any storage space.
  19. I suffer with clinical depression and anxiety issues, some may call that crazy - does that count?
