SWF Gathering 19 March 2022

[10:05] Miranda Barrowstone: Welcome to Safe Waters Foundation weekly aquatic support gathering. My name is Miranda. I will be leading today’s meeting.
[10:05] Celtic Infinity cheers for Miranda
[10:05] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): ~YAY!!! \ (@o@)/ / YAY!!!~
[10:05] Miranda Barrowstone: Welcome new and old aquatics and friends!
[10:05] Miranda Barrowstone: Safe waters foundation (SWF) is a not-for-profit group supporting the development of harmony and safety for merfolk and aquatics of second life, we bring together designers, retailers, sims, merrow, mermen, mermaids, siren, aquatics and lovers of same.
[10:06] Miranda Barrowstone: People seem to arrive late and depart early. Please don’t be offended but as leader I will try to keep the meeting going. We don’t repeat things for latecomers – a log is posted on our blog after the meeting. This is not a place for public debate – this is a helpful place. we all help each other slive an aquatic lifestyle.
[10:06] Miranda Barrowstone: Because we usually have good attendance – please take a moment to remove all extra attachments and huds. We’d like you to dress low lag. Big poofy hair and jewelry are big culprits, as are bubbles, script things, huds, and such. If we all cooperate, more merfolk can participate with less crashing. Thank you for your help with this.
[10:07] Miranda Barrowstone: so how was your week merfolk?

[10:01] Miranda Barrowstone: Welcome new and old aquatics and friends!
[10:01] Miranda Barrowstone: Safe waters foundation (SWF) is a not-for-profit group supporting the development of harmony and safety for merfolk and aquatics of second life, we bring together designers, retailers, sims, merrow, mermen, mermaids, siren, aquatics and lovers of same.
[10:02] Miranda Barrowstone: People seem to arrive late and depart early. Please don’t be offended but as leader I will try to keep the meeting going. We don’t repeat things for latecomers – a log is posted on our blog after the meeting. This is not a place for public debate – this is a helpful place. we all help each other slive an aquatic lifestyle.
[10:02] Miranda Barrowstone: Because we usually have good attendance – please take a moment to remove all extra attachments and huds. We’d like you to dress low lag. Big poofy hair and jewelry are big culprits, as are bubbles, script things, huds, and such. If we all cooperate, more merfolk can participate with less crashing. Thank you for your help with this.
[10:03] Miranda Barrowstone: so how was yer week seafolk?

[10:07] Miranda Barrowstone: okay so the order is my introduction-done, introduce the new folks, sharing questions, ideas, and support to help each other-ie; tails, hair, bodies, AOs, requests, etc, PSAs and promotion of events, sales or what ever else needs to be shared, then I close us out with our goals, maybe a group hug and picture.

SWF Gathering 5 March 2022

[10:02] Miranda Barrowstone: Welcome to Safe Waters Foundation weekly aquatic support gathering. My name is Miranda. I will be leading today’s meeting.

Welcome new and old aquatics and friends!
[10:02] Celtic Infinity cheers for Miranda ♥
[10:02] Miranda Barrowstone: ㋡
[10:02] Miranda Barrowstone: Safe waters foundation (SWF) is a not-for-profit group supporting the development of harmony and safety for merfolk and aquatics of second life, we bring together designers, retailers, sims, merrow, mermen, mermaids, siren, aquatics and lovers of same.
[10:03] Miranda Barrowstone: People seem to arrive late and depart early. Please don’t be offended but as leader I will try to keep the meeting going. We don’t repeat things for latecomers – a log is posted on our blog after the meeting. This is not a place for public debate – this is a helpful place. we all help each other slive an aquatic lifestyle.
[10:03] Miranda Barrowstone: Because we usually have good attendance – please take a moment to remove all extra attachments and huds. We’d like you to dress low lag. Big poofy hair and jewelry are big culprits, as are bubbles, script things, huds, and such. If we all cooperate, more merfolk can participate with less crashing. Thank you for your help with this.
[10:03] Miranda Barrowstone: so how was yer week merfolk?
[10:04] Celtic Infinity: It was good, thanks! How was yours, Miranda?
[10:04] Jenny Everywhere (Siobhan McCallen): Actually, quite good, thank you!

[10:06] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): Yep. head is all empty
[10:06] Miranda Barrowstone: lol
[10:06] Jenny Everywhere (Siobhan McCallen): Nuthin’ in the noggin!
[10:07] Miranda Barrowstone: with me, they might have fallen off the nightstand behind the bed. good luck though, squinting at the computer is not fun
[10:08] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): Oh I tell ya. its those sneaky mermaids from my neighborhood. I can do today without them. Just wont be able to see everything as clearly
[10:08] Miranda Barrowstone: lol
[10:09] Miranda Barrowstone: Our priority today is support – mers helping mers – aquatics helping aquatics.
[10:09] Bunny Eclipse (Moon Heartsong): snecky mer?
[10:09] Jenny Everywhere (Siobhan McCallen): smexy mer?
[10:09] Miranda Barrowstone: okay so the order is my introduction-done, introduce the new folks, sharing questions, ideas, and support to help each other-ie; tails, hair, bodies, AOs, requests, etc, PSAs and promotion of events, sales or what ever else needs to be shared, then I close us out with our goals, maybe a group hug and picture.

[10:16] Miranda Barrowstone: ok so lets mve on.
[10:16] Miranda Barrowstone: now is when I ask if anyone has requests or questions
[10:16] Miranda Barrowstone: what general questions can we discuss here today? Where do our aquatics need help? If you wish to share here – please im me so that I can call on you.
[10:17] Miranda Barrowstone: When you are called on (and given our invisible talking stick) please swim up to this podium (so people can see you to im if needed) and share (very briefly and preferable in two or three sentences typed in advance as our meeting time is limited)
[10:18] Miranda Barrowstone: example, we had a little boy swim in and ask for someone to make mertails for kids
[10:18] Miranda Barrowstone: sometimes people ask about AOs or how to work a 5 point tail
[10:19] Bunny Eclipse (Moon Heartsong): what is a 5point tail
[10:19] Asteria Maxima (Asteria0Maxima Resident) is online.
[10:19] Miranda Barrowstone: I’m nt rightly sure
[10:20] creamy (creamydeliciousness Resident): bento
[10:20] Celtic Infinity: 🙂
[10:20] Miranda Barrowstone: I still swim it old school
[10:20] Jenny Everywhere (Siobhan McCallen): It refers to how many points of articulation it has
[10:20] Bunny Eclipse (Moon Heartsong): oh bento ok
[10:20] Marion698 Resident: its not a bento tail
[10:20] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): I believe its the old school bento like Aii&Ego Siren or the Jomo tail
[10:20] Miranda Barrowstone: its not?
[10:20] Marion698 Resident: i can show you a 5joint tail
[10:20] Jenny Everywhere (Siobhan McCallen): A 5-point tail has more places where it can bend. You need a special AO for it.
[10:20] Bunny Eclipse (Moon Heartsong): ok if its not bento how does it work like flexi or bento or both
[10:20] Miranda Barrowstone: oh
[10:21] Marion698 Resident: ye indeed
[10:21] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): its worn on your leg. and the 5 joints are used by the O to get the tail moving
[10:22] Miranda Barrowstone: tala, welcome
[10:22] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): like the fluke is attached tp the feet and the knees hips and ankle are all animated by the AO
[10:22] Bunny Eclipse (Moon Heartsong): ohh ok
[10:22] Bunny Eclipse (Moon Heartsong): ty
[10:22] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): they do not perform well with Tala or other bento AOs
[10:22] Marion698 Resident: agrees with drakos
[10:22] Celtic Infinity: Tala, Ohora 🙂
[10:23] Marion698 Resident: tala ohora
[10:23] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): so its a mesh tail probably not a bento tail
[10:23] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): Tala Ohora
[10:23] Marion698 Resident: shall i show you a 5joint?
[10:23] Miranda Barrowstone: okay any other great discussion?
[10:23] Miranda Barrowstone: sure
[10:25] Ohora Sessa (Cathy Jackson): Yala everyone sorrry I’m late again
[10:25] Marion698 Resident: thats a five joint
[10:25] Miranda Barrowstone: its cool Ohora

[10:26] Miranda Barrowstone: sup?
[10:26] Asteria Maxima (Asteria0Maxima Resident) is offline.
[10:26] Miranda Barrowstone: creamy whats your question
[10:26] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): thank you Ms Marion 🙂
[10:26] creamy (creamydeliciousness Resident): why did almost all the aqautic creators leave and/or close up shop?
[10:26] Ohora Sessa (Cathy Jackson): Nice tail btw Miranda
[10:27] Miranda Barrowstone: thanks. its old school but still works for me. hope to upgrad at some point
[10:27] Miranda Barrowstone: not sure. I know folk get busy
[10:27] creamy (creamydeliciousness Resident): its a beaut
[10:28] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): I would say.. its change/Transition. Old ones go and new ones come. Some change name and structure of business. at the end of the day. they all have to maintain a balance which is not easy
[10:28] Jenny Everywhere (Siobhan McCallen): These things go in waves, in an out like the tides. They surge up, they roll back. No worries.
[10:28] Marion698 Resident: yes drakos
[10:28] Miranda Barrowstone: ㋡ its from li’ll scallywags, its for kids but can be modded to fit an adult

[10:31] Miranda Barrowstone: Quick reminders/announcements

Ad boards are awesome because they can help newer merfolk and aquatics find places to swim. If you need mer traffic, please consider renting an ad board.

[10:32] Miranda Barrowstone: Perks include helping the group and being allowed to post ads in the group twice a day. Add in the fact that anyone can ask for the stick and that is great exposure.

[10:37] Marion698 Resident: claps for jenny:)
[10:37] Jenny Everywhere (Siobhan McCallen): Calm seas, everyone, and thank you for being here!

I’m Jenny Everywhere, SWF Guardian Chief. We’re once again taking a try at getting the SWF Guardians of the Sea up and running, with a completely rebuilt training program.
[10:37] Jenny Everywhere (Siobhan McCallen): What the SWF Guardians do is assist when stress is high and tempers get short. We do our best to defuse such situations, as everyone here is precious to us. We want everyone to enjoy their time here, and will go out of our way to help when things are tense. We will step in when the occasional griefer causes issues, and will teach everyone who wants to know some simple tricks that will make griefers less likely to bring on grief. Our goal is to make being at SWF a pleasure, that your day will not be ruined if we are here.
[10:38] Jenny Everywhere (Siobhan McCallen): If you are having problems, we’re here to listen and to help things get better. But mostly, if someone from the outside is trying to cause grief, come to one of us or drop an IM, and we will step in to smooth out the stormy waters and help things go right again. We are not “Sea Cops”, nor are we trying to horn in on what the lovely Concierges and Mentors are doing. We are specifically here to assist with problems that go counter to the SWF ideals, and our rules of conduct. We will also step in when appropriate, when something needs to be reported to the Lindens.
[10:38] Fɪɴᴀ 小霜 (Sapphira Franizzi) is online.
[10:38] Jenny Everywhere (Siobhan McCallen): But what I’m chiefly here to tell you today is that we need those of you who have a desire to help out in this way to consider joining the SWF Guardians. The training is short and easy — advanced training will be added later for those who desire to swim further.
[10:38] Jenny Everywhere (Siobhan McCallen): Next to the entrance to this arena is an information giver that will give out a notecard with a short description of the Guardians, and a copy of our application. If you want to join the Guardians, fill out the form and send it to me. Ideally, we’ll wait for a class with several to be ready, but we will also train individuals.
[10:38] Jenny Everywhere (Siobhan McCallen): So come join the SWF Guardians! We swim toward the danger to calm the seas for all!
[10:39] Jenny Everywhere (Siobhan McCallen): The notecard giver is here!
[10:39] Miranda Barrowstone: ~Persu Em~
[10:39] Miranda Barrowstone: Thank you
[10:39] Miranda Barrowstone: Jenny
[10:39] Miranda Barrowstone: any questions for Jenny?
[10:39] Jenny Everywhere (Siobhan McCallen): Thank YOU, Miranda
[10:39] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): amazing. Thank you Jenny. I needed one a few months ago
[10:40] Jenny Everywhere (Siobhan McCallen): I’m here to help, drakos.
[10:40] Miranda Barrowstone: ok Darkos, the stick is yours
[10:40] Second Life: Items successfully shared.
[10:41] Celtic Infinity claps for Drakos
[10:41] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): Thanks Miranda dont throw. it. no glasses
[10:41] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): Hello Everyone.
[10:41] Miranda Barrowstone hands to to darkos when they find their way up
[10:41] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): These announcements are regarding Haven group of sims
[10:41] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): Haven of Mermaids sim is now officially open. Still work in progress a little bit but we would value your opinion as to what Merfolk would really like to see in this place? We are hoping to have a non immersive Role Play. This is a combination of 3 full regions at the moment: Mermaids, Rogues, Sirens. and the 4th Pirates in the process of being moved next to them.
[10:42] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): Haven Group of sims is also now a partner of SWF and we will be setting up hangouts and teleport locations between the two places along with Ad Boards (if I can find where they are) lol. We have 2 dedicated Sim Managers as well who along side me can help you out and you are free to run past your ideas across all of us. The Sims are for you… so Merfolk are always a priority.
[10:42] creamy (creamydeliciousness Resident): yay
[10:43] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): Moon and Darian are the dedicated Sim Managers and we are all working together
[10:43] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): We have created a short Poll/Survey for merfolk about what you would like to see as Role Play (Immersive/non immersive/Open/free form/Strict) Haven group of sims will cater for the non immersive/free form types of roleplay and we are open for suggestions.. The Dwarka RolePlay Sims are dedicated for Immersive/Strictish type of roleplay for all things Aquatic. I m happy to send the Poll to anyone who wanmts to fill them and pass them on.
[10:43] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): Another interesting bit:
[10:43] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): Haven of Sirens now has 8 residential caves for mers to stay in. They should be ready in a couple of days with rent boxes and prim allowances from 200-1000 depending on monthly rental costs. The old Siren’s groups are redundant as I do not have access to them and the previous owners have not passed those on so these will be starting afresh.
[10:43] Bunny Eclipse (Moon Heartsong): waves her tail
[10:44] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): Any questions please contact me or Bunny Eclipse (Moon Heartsong) or Darien Eclipse (damo32 Resident)
[10:44] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): An Adboard will be setup for all of the above shortly
[10:45] Miranda Barrowstone: sweet deal mate
[10:45] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): Miranda.. why does your bunny say? “Pay the Bunny”?
[10:46] Miranda Barrowstone: it says Ray
[10:46] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): oh missing glasses
[10:46] Celtic Infinity: But he does accept tips.
[10:46] Miranda Barrowstone: his name is Ray and he’s a bunny
[10:46] Miranda Barrowstone: he likes soft shelled crab
[10:46] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): any questions anyone?
[10:46] creamy (creamydeliciousness Resident): giggles
[10:47] Bunny Eclipse (Moon Heartsong): can i add something?
[10:47] Miranda Barrowstone: I think I asked before if kids were allowed now but I suddenly can’t remewmber the answer
[10:47] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): sure Moon
[10:47] Miranda Barrowstone: yes
[10:47] Bunny Eclipse (Moon Heartsong): if anyone wants a poll nc to fill out plz let us know we will pass you one
[10:47] drákos (Kraken Darkheart): Well no. Because it involves some sort of RP.. We have decided to keep the kids out unfortunately.
[10:48] Miranda Barrowstone: okay I can live with that
