Second life blog turned into Sansar moment

*UPDATE* Ebbe Altberg and some of the team have liaised with Ryan and it looks to be that this situation is on its way to being resolved. *Dialogue is always a great thing.*

I actually was planning to talk about lovely winters thoughts and such like in this blog this morning regarding second life.But standing here at the bus stop reading my feed I saw a statement from Ryan Schultz that he feels he cannot blog at the moment because yet again someone from the lab has dived in wearing size 26’s and done the take it down or else statement. Link to his Blog

Honestly some days I do wonder about folk.

Positively promoting your experiences. And here you go yet again size 26’s and alienate folk. If you consider that experience a secret….shhhh don’t tell anyone it exists and certainly don’t let anyone enter. Simples. Put disclaimers in entering the experience. I’d say that’s logical isn’t it?

Have you guys in your ivory towers put a sign on the logging page for the experience that states No, go away, no one can know or see!!!!

Or have you now taken the decision that ultimately you are going to take down every single blogger and vlogger just to show you can and scare monger?

Be clear about what you expect . Don’t hide it in the little print. If an experience is not allowed to be seen, common sense is a disclaimer at the teleportation of wording that says so.

Be thoughtful to people who visit. Sansar needs the promotion and here you go and upset a person who promotes it daily, often a number of times a day?

I’m thinking High Fidelity may soon see a surge of interest. In fact I’m reloading it tonight!

And now for the nice stuff….

Wow

So it’s only Tuesday and I’m already thinking about the weekend. Like the rest of the population out there. Though can I say my title wow has nothing to do with that snippet from my mind.

I came home from work yesterday and have been in wow mode.

The reason. My son has this week off work and usually I sigh heavily every night I get home because I have extra housework to do clearing up after him. Mind you I accept I’m a little OCD as well.

Anyhow last night I got home to a completely reshuffled kitchen, cupboards all rearranged and new oven trays and chopping boards and fry pans.

Now that may seem really unexciting to many. But to me after a horrid day at work it really warmed my being. Then, on top of that the landlady came to visit. Suffice to say it turned out a great visit and reinforced the great relationship we have had for the past 13 years. Yes, I’m the longest tenant in history I’m sure !

I’m hoping that the rest of the week brings similar good breaks as I have 3 hearings this week to represent and if they all go well for the people I represent then my week would have been a really good one.

I feel like a posh nosh in this outfit. Hud video under here…

Happy Sunday’s. Nothing ends a Saturday night better than a epic mushy song and a woman dancing on the edge of a cliff.

Finding your inner zen and peace

Finding your inner peace?

Yeah you read that correctly. I have decided to get all meditation like and see if that’s the path I want to explore.

Admittedly this downward dog idea may be a bit of a challenge to me as not sure how the the heck I get back up again?

I came to this conclusion after noting a few of my more calmer friends practice yoga on a very regular basis.

One meditates as well.

The other two do the yoga thing in order to feel cleansed after their regular consumption of all that is considered sinful. A bit like penance.

Mind you I purchased tai chi DVD’s and have considered if the downward dog and I don’t see eye to eye. Slow sweeping in my living room may just be the ticket.

New year and new attitude.

Facing the paparazzi?

This backdrop did make me laugh so had to get it.

There’s been so much negative feedback about the new sim Backdrop City that I seriously had to put my two cents worth in.

I’m a daily vlogger/blogger and try to do a lot of my blogs around the various sims in Second Life as I love showing off scenery specifically when I am filming.

But, there is a but. Lag happens a lot and you will often hear me moaning about that when I’m vlogging and can’t Rez a hud properly. So it’s the home platform to film. Now I’m not rich by any means and having to buy backdrops as often as I need them and props, actually works out damn expensive. I’m showcasing merchants when I’m doing this and I’m personally not earning a penny.

When the sim Backdrop city opened it meant that on days I suffer bad lag there is somewhere I could go and get that photo or picture together at last minute.

I think the numerous assertions that this will mess up merchants incomes etc is daft.

The reason I feel that way is simple. Since I first joined SL I’ve taken photos in many places where people have had said backdrops freely available to use and scenes other people have created. There have been free to use photo studios and I know of other places that just contain backdrops. This has been existing in SL ever since I learnt you could take a photo.

The lady that set this up has physically using her own money paid for each of the backdrops and also pays for the sim.

I in turn have purchased backdrops from merchants that I thought wow, wonder what else they have as a result of visiting this sim.

So logically who has missed out financially?

The items were purchased and I know some of those cost in excess of 1k per Backdrop. So money was exchanged.

I agree that items listed at events need to be held back till event is over but seriously there is a bigger picture.

In reality we buy and sell on what we buy. That’s real life commerce. We buy a car, we sell it on. The principle is pretty much the same here if people are talking about commerce in SL. Every business has to have a backup plan on how they sustain their business and how they plan to market it.

People showcasing fabulous backdrops in blog posts or videos is also part of the market plan.

Do we complain when a dance merchants dances appear in dance systems at clubs for all to use? That a house is multiplied in sims as part of rental businesses?

Yet there is a huge cry out on someone who is earning nothing, not even a land tip.

Certainly don’t be negative about bloggers who use these because frankly we are advertising for you.

Oh and remember everyone ganging up to harangue one person who thought she was doing a great thing for bloggers and vloggers, is a little bit like bullying. Think before you post. It’s not nice for anyone to find out they are being so maligned no matter who they are. And my goodness I have read some pretty toxic comments.

I’ve been there, worn the tshirt and it’s pretty soul hurting. Is that the people we want to be?

We are a community last time I checked.

Get to know the person and what she was aiming to do. Read the signs on the sim and just seriously be kind. Have a discussion, consider a marketing idea? Possibilities are endless.

Oh and be considerate of the bloggers who seriously are not making anything and who invest a lot of money in drawing together scenes for posts. It’s so totally a urban myth. That they get everything for free. I can guarantee that is not the case. A lot of us actually pay for our blogs and our props. We do it because we love it.
