I read and read and read I don't know how many sites, followed by watching any videos I could find on how to go from the beginner/noob avatar to a fully mesh/bento avatar - then spent (apparently) an entire months' worth of allowable USD buying Lindens so I could create my avatar (I don't think I did too horrible a job of it). I did my 'due diligence' before joining so I wouldn't be a pain-in-the-cracker noob. So with that out of the way, I was ready to find all the beautiful sims I've seen on flickr and dive into being a sim photographer. Nope. After happily snatching your money - if you're less than a month old - you're not welcome on a majority of sims. Thing is, you won't ever forget those sims and will never visit them again, even after you're an 'acceptable' month old - much less donate any L$ to them. You'll make sure to let your friends who join you in SL know not to bother with those sims, too. It would be very nice if someone forced all guilty sim owners to put in big, bold letters on all their sim ads/Destination Guide, "AVATARS LESS THAN 1 MONTH OLD NOT WELCOME HERE". I just feel so unwelcome as a new resident. Restrictions, restrictions, restrictions. By whose standards are new avatars accused, judged, condemned and sentenced? And why? What on earth is a brand new resident so horrifically guilty of, for crying out loud? Not even sure I have any desire to keep my premium membership going now. It's just left a really sour taste in my mouth and a bad first impression of Second Life.
