SWF Gathering 20 May 2022

[10:01] Miranda Barrowstone:
Welcome to Safe Waters Foundation weekly aquatic support gathering. My name is Miranda. I will be leading today’s meeting.
[10:01] Sebastian Seagrove (Lobsterquadrille Resident): Applause!!
[10:02] Miranda Barrowstone: lol
[10:02] Celtic Infinity cheers for Miranda ?
[10:02] Miranda Barrowstone: Welcome new and old aquatics and friends!
[10:03] 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.
[10:04] 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.

[10:15] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): Hello, everyone~! My name is Cecily. This is my first time at a Safe Waters meeting, although I’ve been enjoying my part-time mer life since about 2017. I run a shop called Zen Child Designs and helped create the Seafolk of SL Discord server to provide an extra resource for the aquatic-inclined of SL. When I have legs, you can find me modding boats here in SL and exploring. ?
[10:16] Miranda Barrowstone: nice!
[10:16] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle) waves at their horse.
[10:16] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): Thank you for the warm welcome~!
[10:16] Miranda Barrowstone: zen child? what do you usually make there?
[10:16] Ohora Sessa (Cathy Jackson): Very nice 🙂
[10:16] Tsol (Ella Redfield): hi hi hi, Cecily.
[10:16] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): (Sorry, accidentally triggered a Teegle gesture haha)
[10:17] Miranda Barrowstone: lol
[10:17] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): 😀
[10:17] Ohora Sessa (Cathy Jackson): Yala Cecily!
[10:17] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): tala Naet
[10:17] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): I create mermaid mods, tattoos and I’m beginning to mesh as well. :3
[10:18] Celtic Infinity: Cool!
[10:18] Livia Brightdoe (littlebrightdoe Resident): That’s so awesome!
[10:18] Sebastian Seagrove (Lobsterquadrille Resident) hi fins Naet
[10:18] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): ~YAY!!! \ (@o@)/ / YAY!!!~
[10:18] Ohora Sessa (Cathy Jackson): Cool!
[10:18] Naet Ravenhurst: hi fins sebastian
[10:18] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): mrrrrrrrrp~
[10:18] Miranda Barrowstone: thats pretty awesome. when you have new stuff you can always ask to share during promotions too
[10:19] Miranda Barrowstone: great exposure
[10:19] Miranda Barrowstone: Questions and support requests
Now – 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.
[10:19] Miranda Barrowstone: things like tail help, animation help etc are popular topics
[10:20] 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)
[10:20] Miranda Barrowstone: If you would like to ask question or put forth support ideas – please im me now.
[10:21] Miranda Barrowstone: so any topics today?
[10:21] Ohora Sessa (Cathy Jackson): It’s not for me but I’ve gotten questions from guys having trouble getting tails to fit
[10:21] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): ooh yeah that’s a toughie
[10:22] Miranda Barrowstone: shoot. some one might have an answer
[10:22] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): there’s good options for guys at the moment – Nemissa is for Legacy M, and Valenne supports just about every body on the grid, for guys too.
[10:22] Sebastian Seagrove (Lobsterquadrille Resident): yes it supports jake and gianni
[10:23] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi) scrunches up her nose at the mention of Legacy =^-^=
[10:23] Ohora Sessa (Cathy Jackson): It seemed like a fairly basic problem to me
[10:25] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): something a bit more advanced
[10:25] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): they can try having a separate shape to wear for mer tails
[10:25] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): I do that when I wear Kupra 🙂
[10:25] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): sometimes tweaking the shape might make it fit better, such as adjusting sliders for stuff like body thickness, fat, muscle etc
[10:25] Ohora Sessa (Cathy Jackson): But I am glad that I asked so I have some solutions for the men
[10:25] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): usual rigged mesh shenanigans
[10:26] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): :-.,_,.-:'*Yayyyyyyy!!!!*:-.,_,.-:*'‘*
[10:26] Livia Brightdoe (littlebrightdoe Resident): It might help to try all the different alphas available with the Valenne tails. I have Lara and my tail is from Static, but I actually use the Valenne Ebody alpha to make everything work. The alphas are free in the Valenne demo.
[10:26] Miranda Barrowstone: gotta help the brothers
[10:26] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): Thats a great tip Livia!
[10:26] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): woot
[10:27] Miranda Barrowstone: good onya
[10:27] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): Perhaps it’d be a good idea if anyone who figures out some good mer-fitting shape adjustments to make the shape numbers public knowledge and gets a NC going so that males have an easier time making a secondary shape?
[10:27] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): hrrrrrm
[10:28] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): (Just for the lower body/torso, I mean)
[10:28] Miranda Barrowstone: thats a good idea
[10:28] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): I don’t think that can (or should) be standardized
[10:28] Miranda Barrowstone: sounded more like a guidline than a standard
[10:29] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): I meant more as a starting point for people who needed help~
[10:29] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): I mean, it’s just all about fiddling with the sliders until they fit nicely
[10:29] Miranda Barrowstone: yeah thats a masive pain
[10:29] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): mebbes I’m wrong and someone might figure something out
[10:30] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): I think a lot of people give up when things don’t fit immediately. It might make things easier for people who are just beginning to play around with mer avatars.
[10:30] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): ooh… okies, good point
[10:30] Miranda Barrowstone: I never would have figured that tiny avs are ginormus shapes for example. a road map makes a trip easier
[10:30] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): :O tinies have giant shapes?
[10:31] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): with a deformer, if I understand correctly
[10:31] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): wow!
[10:31] Miranda Barrowstone: toddlees does for example yes
[10:31] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): wow
[10:32] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): dinkies too
[10:32] Miranda Barrowstone: I seriously have no idea how it all works
[10:32] Livia Brightdoe (littlebrightdoe Resident): Oh wow, I didn’t know that.
[10:32] Miranda Barrowstone: thats kinda why I kick it old school
[10:33] Miranda Barrowstone: sorrta.. I mean I do have a mesh torso but I don’t have any special shapes
[10:33] Ohora Sessa (Cathy Jackson): Yes I have found it’s nice when someone has already worked out all the kinks
[10:34] Miranda Barrowstone: and you have a reset point if you play with the sliders
[10:34] Miranda Barrowstone: so we should try to make an nc with the shape numbers for male tails
[10:35] Miranda Barrowstone: was that the topic?
[10:35] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): mebbes if anyone has some good shapes/numbers they can share that information
[10:35] Miranda Barrowstone: yeah. okay
[10:36] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): not sure about “we should try to make…” because then there’s different mesh bodies and all that too X_X
[10:36] Ohora Sessa (Cathy Jackson): It’s the topic now I think lol
[10:36] Miranda Barrowstone: any other topics or shall we swim on?
[10:36] Miranda Barrowstone: yeah it’s really tricky trying to get around all the mesh bodies
[10:37] Miranda Barrowstone: let’s swim on to promotions
[10:37] Miranda Barrowstone: thank you for the great topic btw
[10:38] 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.
[10:38] Ohora Sessa (Cathy Jackson): That is fine to swim on now it was just something to discuss for a bit
[10:38] Miranda Barrowstone: aye
[10:38] 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.
[10:39] Miranda Barrowstone: You might also consider being a hang out.

Please also check our mer-mall just past the headquarters. space available and lots of great things.
[10:39] Miranda Barrowstone: Be sure to visit the safe waters foundation web site and event calendar at http://www.safewatersfoundation.com/#home
[10:39] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): Munin is a hangout
[10:40] Miranda Barrowstone: yes he is
[10:40] Miranda Barrowstone: -=giggles=-
[10:40] Celtic Infinity: 🙂
[10:40] Miranda Barrowstone: and now…

  • To assist those considering a mer life
  • To increase awareness in the general public that there is a mer option
  • To make mer resources (events, projects, groups, retailers, sims, designers) visible and easily accessible
  • To assist, as possible, with the viability of mer resources so they may continue to be available to the community
  • To promote the conservation of RL oceans, lakes and waterways and the nature that relies on them

[10:03] 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.
[10:04] 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.
[10:04] Miranda Barrowstone: so how was your week sea folk?
[10:04] Celtic Infinity: It was awesome, thanks!!! How was yours, Miranda?
[10:05] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): My week was restorative – balancing life better

[10:19] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I just thought I’d ask if there was need or ideas for helping us find each other
[10:19] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): the sea lovers I mean
[10:19] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I think we started discord – haven’t tried it yet
[10:19] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I just discovered Zoom – would any of you consider meeting in a video chat once in awhile?
[10:19] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth) gasps! let them see the legged me???? shocking idea
[10:20] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): just wanted to open it to discussion if you care to share
[10:20] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): Zoom? no
[10:20] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): hehe
[10:20] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): not for everyone
[10:20] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): Zoom? nah. Discord voice? maybe.
[10:20] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): other ideas?
[10:20] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): welcome Paek
[10:20] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): asking ways we can find each other more often or in different ways
[10:20] Celtic Infinity: Welcome back, Naet 🙂
[10:21] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): (open disccussion – love to hear ideas)
[10:21] Paek ‘Ophiel’ Kwang-Joon ??? (Ophiel Resident): Tala to everyone !
[10:21] Paek ‘Ophiel’ Kwang-Joon ??? (Ophiel Resident): ?.•:… <)))X … *:•.?
[10:21] Hiroko Nubalo: is SWF on Dsicord?
[10:21] Naet Ravenhurst: to find each other? we could stalk each other with stalking huds and such
[10:21] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): Is the Discord group still invite only? I’ve been thinking about that since it was and wonder if that’s conducive to our community growth. It may have changed since then though 🙂
[10:21] Vivienne Koisera (Vivien0Koisera Resident): that’s an interesting way of connecting
[10:21] ßunny De?on??-W?t?rston? (Moon Heartsong): grace if i may
[10:21] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): yes we have discord
[10:21] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): SWF does
[10:21] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I have no idea how to use it yet
[10:22] Naet Ravenhurst: I’d love to join discord server
[10:22] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): was organized by …… um let me look at my contact list
[10:22] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I’ll try to get info about it onto the web page
[10:22] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): is discord hard to learn?
[10:22] ßunny De?on??-W?t?rston? (Moon Heartsong): Haven of Mermands and rest of the haven sims have a discord for those who wish to join
[10:22] Vivienne Koisera (Vivien0Koisera Resident): not neccessarily
[10:22] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): not at all
[10:22] Rusozee Bandalora V?????? (bioskyline Resident): not overly hard no
[10:22] Naet Ravenhurst: bunny, I’d love to join
[10:23] Rhodan Fishbottoms (Rhodan Kuhn): Discord is definitely the better option, since it allows people to keep their RL and SL much more separate. Zoom and Teams and the like are often already linked to their work or family accounts these days.
[10:23] Paek ‘Ophiel’ Kwang-Joon ??? (Ophiel Resident): Discord is ok … even though it is the most weird name ever chosen for a chatting program
[10:23] Nathanael Sommerfeld: ?
[10:23] Nathanael Sommerfeld: Greetings everyone!
[10:24] ßunny De?on??-W?t?rston? (Moon Heartsong): zoom is also more demanding on computers discord takes less to run
[10:24] Celtic Infinity: Tala, Nathanael 🙂
[10:24] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): interesting – I want to learn how to lead zoom meetings
[10:24] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): so you may see me trying it out – see if any interest
[10:24] Nathanael Sommerfeld: ?
[10:24] Nathanael Sommerfeld: Tala
[10:24] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): I think it’s important to note that
[10:24] Miranda Barrowstone: if I partake I will need a mic that works
[10:24] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): note what?
[10:24] ßunny De?on??-W?t?rston? (Moon Heartsong): i cant help with zoom only used it once but been on discord for long while
[10:24] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): Zoom is a terrible option because…
[10:24] Hiroko Nubalo: do you use your Avatar on Zoom?
[10:25] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): nope
[10:25] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): some people on SL want to keep RL separate
[10:25] ßunny De?on??-W?t?rston? (Moon Heartsong): no
[10:25] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): oooooh well maybe
[10:25] ßunny De?on??-W?t?rston? (Moon Heartsong): zoom is rl self
[10:25] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I do have a grace email
[10:25] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I wonder?
[10:25] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): if something in SL *requires* Zoom, I will not participate in it.
[10:25] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): and I’m not the only one
[10:25] Paek ‘Ophiel’ Kwang-Joon ??? (Ophiel Resident): microphone usually work
[10:25] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): Zoom is pretty awful, you’re limited to meeting duration and there’s no way I want to be on Zoom all day for RL work and then zoom for SL too.
[10:25] ßunny De?on??-W?t?rston? (Moon Heartsong): zoom is what drs use for the vid calls appts
[10:25] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): thats fine Fina – I’m not forcing it on anyone
[10:25] Paek ‘Ophiel’ Kwang-Joon ??? (Ophiel Resident): this i the compatibilty or plugin that sometimes is complicated
[10:25] Miranda Barrowstone: I agree Fina I really do not like zoom
[10:25] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I’m having job interviews in Zoom
[10:25] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): I think Zoom is a terrible idea for anything SL.
[10:25] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): ok ok I hear you
[10:25] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): agree
[10:25] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): Discord is okay
[10:26] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): don’t kill me if I try it – and I’ll understand if nobody comes
[10:26] Paek ‘Ophiel’ Kwang-Joon ??? (Ophiel Resident): yes because Zoom is mostly use for visio calls
[10:26] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): gosh – sometimes I have bad ideas?
[10:26] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): HA HAHA HA..haha!!
[10:26] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): okay here is your stick Miranda – hopping others have quesitons to put out to our community
[10:26] Miranda Barrowstone: no its fine… just might not work for everyone
[10:26] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): of course
[10:26] Hiroko Nubalo: all ideas are great!…soem work other may not, but keeps the mind flowing
[10:26] Miranda Barrowstone: I’m yen trillin times better with text
[10:27] Miranda Barrowstone: yeah exactly
[10:27] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): Zoom is a video meeting application with no social text based aspects, where Discord is specifically design to be an information repository with voice that allows people to catch up later.
[10:27] Vivienne Koisera (Vivien0Koisera Resident): all about circumstancs for people for Zoom people may have children or family situations in the background
[10:27] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): if you have a question or discussion topic, please IM Miranda
[10:27] Miranda Barrowstone: okay anyone else need the stick?
[10:27] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth) reviews her friend list for the discord information

[10:29] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): It’s a single link that takes you to all the links.
[10:29] Naet Ravenhurst: so, it’s the 1 link to rule them all?
[10:30] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): yep

SWF Gathering 7 May 2022

[10:03] 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!
[10:03] Celtic Infinity cheers for Miranda!!!???
[10:04] 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.
[10:04] 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.
[10:04] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): brb real quick X_X
[10:05] 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.
[10:05] Miranda Barrowstone: so how was you week seafolk?
[10:05] Celtic Infinity: It was good, thanks! How was yours, Miranda?

[10:08] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): suddenly stressful, but now better

[10:09] Miranda Barrowstone: Our priority today is support – mers helping mers – aquatics helping aquatics.
[10:10] Miranda Barrowstone: we all help each other
[10:10] 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, then 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.
[10:10] Miranda Barrowstone: so here we go
[10:11] Celtic Infinity buckles up
[10:11] Miranda Barrowstone: any new folk today? don’t be shy
[10:11] Miranda Barrowstone: If you have brought someone new to this gathering, please introduce them now. If you are new and wish to introduce yourself please do so now.
just click on the podium to sit on it or sit were you are if thats just easier.
[10:12] Miranda Barrowstone: A very short sentence is all that is needed – for example: hi, I am (your name) and I discovered aquatics (brief description of how you found us) and what I love about being aquatic is (explain here).
[10:12] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): next time I will try to bring a friend!
[10:12] Miranda Barrowstone: sweet!

[10:13] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): hi I’m Fina. I’m an orca!

Where do our aquatics need help? If you wish to share here – please im me so that I can call on you. [10:16] 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) [10:17] Miranda Barrowstone: If you would like to ask question or put forth support ideas – please im me now. [10:17] Miranda Barrowstone: Our priority here is helping newer mers and aquatics – so please if you are new and with questions – please feel free to speak up. I do lead strongly because otherwise we tend to move to chaos – but we all try to remember the priority – mer helping mer be mer. [10:18] Miranda Barrowstone: so any questions topics of support etc? [10:18] Miranda Barrowstone hums the jeopardy theme [10:19] Celtic Infinity dances [10:19] Echo (JessicaRubyRabbit Resident): oookies okie… [10:19] Miranda Barrowstone: okay Echo you have the stick [10:19] Celtic Infinity claps for Echo [10:19] Echo (JessicaRubyRabbit Resident): Magic stick here i come…. [10:19] Marion Sopwith (Marion698 Resident): claps for Echo [10:19] Echo (JessicaRubyRabbit Resident) chuckles [10:20] Celtic Infinity claps for Echo [10:20] Echo (JessicaRubyRabbit Resident): well the topic of notecards popped up a little bit ago…. [10:20] JewelMermaid Resident: yay echo [10:20] Echo (JessicaRubyRabbit Resident): i thought, along with out hangouts notecard, which is a great way to share our favorite hang outs and new builds, we could put together a list for shopping places? [10:21] Miranda Barrowstone: sounds good. [10:21] Sushi (Aurora Jarvinen): mlem mah bro <3 [10:21] Echo (JessicaRubyRabbit Resident): favorite stores for mer-parts/accessories….i know everyone has something from somewhere that others wouldnt think to look at [10:21] Munin (Darm Yaffle): rawrs [10:21] Miranda Barrowstone: are you making this list? [10:21] Motoko Kusanagi (Motoko Takeda): You know what might be easier to maintain than a notecard? A wiki. [10:21] Munin (Darm Yaffle): <3 [10:21] Marion Sopwith (Marion698 Resident): tala Munin:-) [10:21] Sushi (Aurora Jarvinen): <3 [10:21] Miranda Barrowstone: wikis are awesome but why not both? [10:22] Echo (JessicaRubyRabbit Resident): true Motoko, but notecards are more direct and easier for the less techno-knowledgeable [10:22] Echo (JessicaRubyRabbit Resident): lol [10:22] Echo (JessicaRubyRabbit Resident): but we could do both! [10:22] Miranda Barrowstone: I don’t always think to go to a website [10:22] Motoko Kusanagi (Motoko Takeda): Yes but if a sim goes down or changes, a wiki is easier to update and track. [10:22] Echo (JessicaRubyRabbit Resident): it is, thats true [10:22] Miranda Barrowstone: true [10:22] Motoko Kusanagi (Motoko Takeda): Just have the notecard also mention the wiki >:D
[10:23] Echo (JessicaRubyRabbit Resident) nods
[10:23] Echo (JessicaRubyRabbit Resident): top idea
[10:23] Echo (JessicaRubyRabbit Resident): like “for latest updates, visit the wiki link below”
[10:23] Echo (JessicaRubyRabbit Resident) grins
[10:23] Motoko Kusanagi (Motoko Takeda): Yeah!
[10:23] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): Moto – can you work on this with Serena and Chicky?
[10:23] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): they update the hangouts list
[10:23] Miranda Barrowstone: there used to be a system that would update all the notecards in all the vendors
[10:23] Motoko Kusanagi (Motoko Takeda): I sure can, Grace!
[10:24] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): the wiki address would need someone to manage it of course
[10:24] Miranda Barrowstone: I have a shop I’d like to put in
[10:24] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): but we could put a link into our hangout updates
[10:24] Echo (JessicaRubyRabbit Resident): so many people looking to find mer parts…and out Mall is the perfect starter, but some want to expand and I’ve seen lots of odd shops sell a few things that they dont normally
[10:24] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): well lets have a little brainstorming meeting outside of here ok?
[10:25] Miranda Barrowstone: aye
[10:25] Echo (JessicaRubyRabbit Resident): yay!
[10:25] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): big yay!!! \o/
[10:25] Motoko Kusanagi (Motoko Takeda): It seems like shops are beginning to dip their fingers in the aquatic market indeed, which is always a welcome addition. More content good.
[10:25] Echo (JessicaRubyRabbit Resident) grins and passes the magic stick back to Miranda…”thankies”
[10:25] Miranda Barrowstone: okay so your task is to work with Chicky and Serena. save the chat.

[10:18] Celtic Infinity claps for Grace
[10:18] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): nuuuuu now I can’t bite the stick
[10:18] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): sure you can – bubble gum flavored slime
[10:18] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): last year I ate loads of birbs
[10:18] Miranda Barrowstone gives Fina a shrimp donut
[10:18] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): this year they made the theme something inedible solely because of me =^-^=
[10:18] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): birds?
[10:18] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): =^.^= Nahm Nahm Nahm!
[10:19] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): oh yessss I remember the birds from last year’s fantasy faire
[10:19] JewelMermaid Resident: fina what is the theme?
[10:19] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): what is the theme this year?
[10:19] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): I don’t remember exactly. I heard it’s cats
[10:19] Bernice Galtier: Just wandering from region to region admiring the creativity of the builders is enough.
[10:19] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): haven’t been there much
[10:19] Persi (Persiphone Karu): it’s the sleeping cat
[10:19] Miranda Barrowstone: I always get lost there.
[10:19] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): there is supposed to be an incredible hunt again
[10:19] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): not sure if it has started – I’ve been out of world more than in lately
[10:19] JewelMermaid Resident: I find Opet to be the best looking sim of them all
[10:19] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): I seem to remember last year I helped Grace cheese the hunt =^-^=
[10:19] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): anyone visited the underwater region that SWF sponsered?
[10:20] Miranda Barrowstone: yes!
[10:20] Bernice Galtier: Yes. It’s lovely.
[10:20] Hiroko Nubalo: I DID!!!
[10:20] Persi (Persiphone Karu): thier are animals that have gotten out of their home… and you find them; then the next part you’ll try to rejoin thm all to their home
[10:20] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): yes! I got so frustrated
[10:20] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): how is our little region?
[10:20] Persi (Persiphone Karu): yes Grace I’ve been there
[10:20] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): offered to help the builder but she never requested anything
[10:20] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): thoughts/comments?
[10:20] Persi (Persiphone Karu): it’s nice; a builders idea of an underwater area
[10:20] Miranda Barrowstone: do we ever have an rp story? Loki’s group always does
[10:21] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): SWF isn’t a role play group
[10:21] Persi (Persiphone Karu): no rp here
[10:21] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): there are role play groups active
[10:21] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I think easily found on the adboards
[10:22] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): the Haven of Mer sims have a roleplay group I know
[10:22] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): SWF is a unifier, there isn’t one RP arc which dominates the others
[10:22] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): there are more
[10:22] Miranda Barrowstone: okay just wondering
[10:22] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): the only dominant RP arc is that mercats are perpetually hungry =^-^=
[10:22] ? ????? ??mâ?-????? ? (MiakaStar Resident): ?´¯•.¸¸? ?¸¸.??´¯*???¸¸. ??????
[10:22] Miranda Barrowstone: yeah never is, all the rps are different
[10:23] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): we are a central resource area – yes for finding role play groups that are active
[10:23] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): great question Miranda!
[10:23] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): good to clarify that
[10:23] Miranda Barrowstone: the unifer is that they are all set up to encorage rfl donations
[10:23] Persi (Persiphone Karu): there are several smaller quests and hunts at FF also this year
[10:23] Miranda Barrowstone: I was a part of Loki’s like twice
[10:23] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): that is just one area that we unify Miranda?
[10:24] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): SWF is much bigger – year round – RFL isn’t the central thing we do
[10:24] Miranda Barrowstone: I think so, I dunno
[10:24] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): that would be FF’s unifier
[10:24] Ohora Sessa (Cathy Jackson): Yala everyone sorry I am late but couldn’t be helped
[10:24] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): yes Fina
[10:24] Miranda Barrowstone: I don’t get to visit much anymore

[10:25] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): Persi had a play at FF
[10:25] Persi (Persiphone Karu): she did joine the group
[10:25] Miranda Barrowstone: ahh
[10:25] Persi (Persiphone Karu): yes it was wonderful
[10:25] Miranda Barrowstone: oh any other support questions?
[10:25] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): does everyone have the info card we made to hand out to people just finding mer life or underwater life?

  • to promote the conservation of rl oceans, lakes and waterways and the nature that relies on them
