[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.
[10:05] 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.

[10:44] Dana Enyo: You can use any mer AO. Mine happens to be a Kami-Hitoe, but even a freebie will work. The AO gives you your swim/float/sit anims.

[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.

[10:17] 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

[10:26] 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

[10:37] 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
[10:48] Marion698 Resident: ok i must go now lusa em:)
[10:48] creamy (creamydeliciousness Resident) pinches her nipple….Thank heavens

[10:55] Miranda Barrowstone: yes [10:55] Miranda Barrowstone: gimme a min [10:55] Miranda Barrowstone: we have a system called TCS. its a craft/trade/rp system that allows you to trade goods with other mers or landers.

SWF Gathering 5 Feb 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] Celtic Infinity: It’s been like this for at least a week.
[10:01] Celtic Infinity cheers for Miranda ???
[10:02] Miranda Barrowstone: Welcome new and old aquatics and friends!
[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.
[10:02] 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.
[10:03] 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.

[10:12] 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)
[10:13] Miranda Barrowstone: If you would like to ask question or put forth support ideas – please im me now.
[10:13] Miranda Barrowstone: Some discussion is great – but please quickly offer to give a notecard or landmark if people will im you (that’s why we ask you to move to the podium ) so that others will have a turn. When you have finished please pass the imaginary talking stick back to me.
[10:14] 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.
[10:14] Miranda Barrowstone: anything? ideas to discuss?
[10:15] Miranda Barrowstone: if not we can move on to psa and promotions…
[10:15] Gabrielle de Lys (malagabi Resident) is online.
[10:15] Miranda Barrowstone: quick reminder
[10:15] Miranda Barrowstone: 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.
[10:16] 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.
[10:16] Miranda Barrowstone: You might also consider being a hang out.
[10:16] Mun?n ß?a??e? (Darm Yaffle): Sis is large enough to be a hangout. . .

[10:29] Miranda Barrowstone: ooh right.
[10:30] Dana Enyo: and if you’re not sure what a big deal that is, last year RfL in SL raised US$416,000.
[10:30] Miranda Barrowstone: I donated a bed to that once on my fairy alt
[10:30] Dana Enyo: LOTS going on from now until Relay weekend June 18-19
[10:30] Hiroko Nubalo: Applause!!!
[10:30] Miranda Barrowstone: fantasy fair is a big thing
[10:30] Dana Enyo: Great! I have some donated items in the Fashion Fair that begins in 90 minutes. It’s all legged, tho.
[10:31] Dana Enyo: This is FASHION Fair. Way smaller than Fantasy Fair, which is among the biggest donor events for RfL.
[10:32] Miranda Barrowstone: a lot of sims have a story going on and at least one that I know of incorprates a super drive in the climax of the story
[10:32] Dana Enyo: A 2 week sale event run by the Seekers of Hope team.
[10:32] Dana Enyo: That’s great, Miranda.
[10:32] Miranda Barrowstone: I wonder wgat the story will be this year
[10:33] Hiroko Nubalo: Question?
[10:33] Tamarushka (Tamara Czervik): Lusa Em everyone, my two rl men (little and adult one) need my presence 🙂 . See you next meeting 🙂
[10:33] Miranda Barrowstone: pretty sure swf would be doing something for it. normally do but I’m not in charge of that.
[10:33] Dana Enyo: Bye Tama!

[10:34] Dana Enyo: Yes?
[10:35] Hiroko Nubalo: Does RFL, or the seeker of Hope distribute donation boxes around SL?..i would like one at my Submerged Gallery, and maybe other sea sims would too?
[10:36] Miranda Barrowstone: thats lovely
[10:36] Dana Enyo: I don’t know how all that works yet. it would not come directly from RfL; everything gets done by teams.
[10:36] Dana Enyo: I can ask our team leader if I can place a kiosk in your gallery.
[10:36] Hiroko Nubalo: Terrif!!!…keep me posted…:)
[10:37] Dana Enyo: I”ll be putting either donation kiosks or “100% donated to RFL” vendors them in my shops.
[10:37] Dana Enyo: and I’ll have at least one “all proceeds to RfL” week in my Marketplace.
[10:38] Dana Enyo: Lost family to cancer years ago; have friends dealing with it now. I”m motivated.
[10:38] Miranda Barrowstone: oh thats awesome
[10:38] Miranda Barrowstone: thats sad
[10:38] Celtic Infinity: 🙁
[10:39] Dana Enyo: “Until there’s a cure, we Relay.”
[10:39] Miranda Barrowstone: sorry for your lss
[10:39] Miranda Barrowstone: loss*
[10:39] Hiroko Nubalo: yes, sry for loss
[10:39] Hiroko Nubalo: Miranda?…didnt SWF hold an RFL event last summer, and SLCL cosponsor?..maybe we can do it again?
[10:39] Miranda Barrowstone: so this is a god share. a nice discussion on RFL
[10:39] Dana Enyo: TY. It’s a long time; not to worry. But let’s make some money and beat this thing.
[10:40] Miranda Barrowstone: I believe we do but I’m not in charge of it
[10:40] Dana Enyo: SWF is not on the list for this year, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t be.
[10:40] Miranda Barrowstone: Chicky would probably be the bestr person to ask.
[10:40] Dana Enyo: All info is HERE: https://secure.acsevents.org/site/STR?pg=entry&fr_id=101748
[10:41] JewelMermaid Resident: i have an LM for a place with free whale jewelry if anyone wants it

This meeting is now adjourned. Remember our SWF goals:

  • to assist those considering an underwater life
  • to increase awareness in the general public that there is an underwater 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

Now go mingle and explore! Thanks for joining us this day!!

[2021/12/04 10:03] Celtic Infinity: Tala, Sebastian 🙂
[2021/12/04 10:03] Sapphira Franizzi: Safe Waters Foundation (SWF) is a not-for-profit group for merfolk and aquatics of SecondLife. We bring together designers, retailers, sim owners and managers, as well as merrow, mermen, mermaids, siren, aquatics and lovers of the same. (Including those perverted pirates – we’re all-inclusive! =^-^=)

[2021/12/04 10:05] Sapphira Franizzi shuffles her script and looks confused
[2021/12/04 10:05] Dragon (cheezydave): Dragons? Me?
[2021/12/04 10:05] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): (and also I shoulda let Dana know our meeting notes are a liiiiiittle not very up to date
[2021/12/04 10:06] Sapphira Franizzi: De-lagging: Because we usually have good attendance, it would be ace if you could remove extra attachments and HUDs, such as big poofy hair with resizers still in them, scripted weapons, bitcoin miners, griefer HUDs, bling jewellery from 2009 etc…
[2021/12/04 10:06] Dragon (cheezydave): steps back
[2021/12/04 10:06] Sapphira Franizzi: Also, for best results, it is recommended to select the ‘Up ‘n over’ animation, if you are sitting on one of the single shell seats. It has been proven to reduce lag! (I think)
[2021/12/04 10:06] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille) buys all my bling jewellery from Q-V-Sea
[2021/12/04 10:07] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi) hopes it doesn’t have a billion complexity
[2021/12/04 10:07] Sapphira Franizzi: So without further ado, let’s do everyone’s favorite part of the meeting!

[2021/12/04 10:13] Sapphira Franizzi: We have an invisible, imaginary talking stick which we roleplay with for parts 3 and 4 of the meeting. For those, IM me – at any time, even before the section is announced is okay – and I will set you up in the order of speakers.
[2021/12/04 10:13] Peaches2U Camino: lolol
[2021/12/04 10:13] Sapphira Franizzi: INTRODUCTIONS

Do we have any new merfolk? If you are new, say hi! No need for IMs or speakers order, just a few words will do. We’re interested to know maybe…
[2021/12/04 10:13] Sapphira Franizzi: how you found SWF?

[2021/12/04 10:14] Sapphira Franizzi: If any of you have brought a guest with you today, yay! You can also introduce them, if they’re okay with it. If you’re shy and don’t prefer the spotlight, that’s okay too. Some of us prefer to just come and chill out in the company of their fellow aquatics… =^-^=

[2021/12/04 10:17] Sapphira Franizzi: QUESTIONS AND SUPPORT REQUESTS

This next part is for questions and support requests, such as general questions. (How do merfolk make babies? Any RP sims for merfolk? How do I get my pirate lover to like kelp?) If you have a question you wish to share, IM me, and I will pass you the talking stick when it is your turn!
[2021/12/04 10:17] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): or just call out in local, idc

Unfortunately our meeting time is not unlimited – while discussion is great, I’ll nudge the meeting along if needed.
[2021/12/04 10:18] Sapphira Franizzi: You may swim up to the scratching post – I mean podium – or just right click and sit on it. If you want to stay in your seat, that’s perfectly fine as well!

SWF Gathering 12 Nov 2021

[10:02] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): okies I think might be a somewhat quiet week, holidays and stuff
[10:02] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille): Tala Jewel
[10:02] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): so… let’s get this party started! =^-^=
[10:02] drákos (kraken.darkheart): ¨‘°ºO Tala Oº°‘¨ Jewel
[10:03] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): ***Woot Woot ***
[10:03] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): Welcome to Safe Waters Foundation’s weekly aquatic gathering! I’m Fina, one of SWF’s resident mercats (no, I’m not the only one) and I’ve been asked to stand in to lead today. =^-^=
[10:03] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille): Applause!!
[10:03] JewelMermaid: yay fina
[10:03] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): We have a new format (which is not really that new anymore, LOL =^-^=) so – without further ado,
[10:03] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): Welcome new and old (and ancient) aquatics and friends!
[10:04] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): :-.,_,.-:'*Yayyyyyyy!!!!*:-.,_,.-:*'‘*
[10:04] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): ~YAY!!! \ (@o@)/ / YAY!!!~
[10:04] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): ***Woot Woot ***
[10:04] drákos (kraken.darkheart): feels really old and ancient lol
[10:04] Bernice Galtier: I never admit to being ancient
[10:04] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): I kinda am too… but I’m cute! =^-^=
[10:04] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): Safe Waters Foundation (SWF) is a not-for-profit group for merfolk and aquatics of SecondLife. We bring together designers, retailers, sim owners and managers, as well as merrow, mermen, mermaids, siren, aquatics and lovers of the same. (Including those perverted pirates – we’re all-inclusive! =^-^=)
[10:04] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille): Justified and Ancient
[10:05] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille): 🙂
[10:05] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): Unfortunately, we don’t have time to repeat for those who arrive late and/or depart early, but that’s okay, we post a meeting log on our website later – that would be http://www.safewatersfoundation.com – remember, our motto is Mer helping aquatics be dragons! Oh wait…
[10:05] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille): haha!
[10:05] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi) shuffles her script and looks confused
[10:05] drákos (kraken.darkheart): you want me to be a Dragon?
[10:06] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): nuuuu dragons are less nummy than squids
[10:06] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): but be whatever you want! =^-^=
[10:06] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): (Munin hasn’t been around, so)
[10:06] drákos (kraken.darkheart): lol
[10:06] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): De-lagging: Because we usually have good attendance, it would be ace if you could remove extra attachments and HUDs, such as big poofy hair with resizers still in them, scripted weapons, bitcoin miners, griefer HUDs, bling jewellery from 2009 etc…
[10:06] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi) unequips her spellfire turkey thrower
[10:07] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): For best results, if you are sitting on one of the single shell seats, it is recommended to select the ‘Up ‘n over’ animation. This has been scientifically proven to reduce lag!
[10:07] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): I think
[10:07] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): So without further ado, let’s do everyone’s favorite part of the meeting!
[10:07] Bernice Galtier: If I sit “up and over” my turban will fall off
[10:07] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi) shouts: HOW WAS YOUR WEEK, SEAFOLK?????
[10:07] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi) points the talking stick at the audience like a microphone =^-^=
[10:07] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille): It went swimmingly
[10:07] drákos (kraken.darkheart): Very busy
[10:07] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille): da dum tsh
[10:07] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): aww
[10:08] drákos (kraken.darkheart): but good
[10:08] Cam De Vil (princecameron): Good thanks Fina, and yours?
[10:08] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): hope everyone is having a good Thanksgiving weekend
[10:08] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): we don’t celebrate thanksgiving here. sadface
[10:08] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi) wants green bean casserole
[10:09] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): Our priority today is SUPPORT – mers helping aquatics – dragons helping pirates.
[10:09] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi) looks at her script and frowns
[10:09] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): Today’s meeting agenda will be as usual:
[10:09] Bernice Galtier: Mers helping themselves to pirates
[10:09] drákos (kraken.darkheart): I think Munin has played with that scriot
[10:09] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): 1) Opening of meeting (done)

2) Introduction of new folks who wish to be introduced

3) Sharing of questions and support requests

4) Sharing of public service announcements

5) Closing and reminder of SWF goals
[10:09] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): I shall have a word with him when I next see him =^-^=
[10:10] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): We have an invisible, imaginary talking stick which we roleplay with for parts 3 and 4 of the meeting. For those, IM me – at any time, even before the section is announced is okay – and I will set you up in the order of speakers.
[10:10] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): INTRODUCTIONS

Do we have any new merfolk? If you are new, say hi! No need for IMs or speakers order, just a few words will do. We’re interested to know maybe how you found SWF? Is there anything you love about being aquatic? What’s your favorite food – mine’s shrimpie snacks btw, and Antiquity’s kelp cakes are also bomb! Oh wait… I digress =^-^=
[10:10] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): tala Sparktalon! =^-^=
[10:10] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille): Tala Sparktalon
[10:11] Sparktalon: Good morning!
[10:11] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): if you wants, you can come up to the scratching post – uh I mean podium
[10:11] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): or just right-click sit on it
[10:11] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): if not, just staying in your seat is fine too =^-^=
[10:11] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): If any of you have brought a guest with you today, yay! You can also introduce them, if they’re okay with it. If you’re shy and don’t prefer the spotlight, that’s okay too. Some of us prefer to just come and chill out in the company of their fellow aquatics… =^-^=
[10:12] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille) chills
[10:12] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi) scratches the podium a bit =^-^=
[10:12] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): welp if not, let’s go to Q&A!
[10:12] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): QUESTIONS AND SUPPORT REQUESTS

This next part is for questions and support requests, such as general questions. (How do merfolk make babies? Any RP sims for merfolk? How do I get my pirate lover to like kelp?) If you have a question you wish to share, IM me, and I will pass you the talking stick when it is your turn!
[10:13] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): The person who holds the talking stick is vested the power to speak, and all shall listen attentively. =^-^= Those who have more knowledge or experience are welcome to contribute. Unfortunately our meeting time is not unlimited – while discussion is great, I’ll nudge the meeting along if needed.
[10:13] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi) loses her script and looks for it
[10:13] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): You may swim up to the scratching post – I mean podium – or just right click and sit on it. If you want to stay in your seat, that’s perfectly fine as well!
[10:14] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): scratch scratch
[10:14] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille): I have a question
[10:14] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): ***Woot Woot ***
[10:14] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi) shouts: SEBBY HAS A QUESTION
[10:14] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille): Where did all the Shrimp go?
[10:15] drákos (kraken.darkheart): Burp!

[10:16] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): do make yourself comfy Persi =^-^=
[10:16] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): we’re about to move on to PSA’s, if no one has any questions
[10:16] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): no one else*
[10:16] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi) flips her skrrept
[10:16] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): skreept*
[10:17] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

This section is for anyone with publicity, or anything fun to share! New store? New sim? Upcoming event? News? Shrimpie recipes? IM me and I will give you the talking stick!
[10:17] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): For the best and smoothest meeting, keep the announcement brief if possible. If you have a notecard, landmark etc ready to share, even better – you can offer to give them out to any interested parties who IM you, for example.
[10:17] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): without further ado… our first speaker is…
[10:17] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): Jewel!!!!!
[10:18] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi) floats the talking stick to Jewel like a torpedo
[10:18] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille) claps for Jewel
[10:18] JewelMermaid: Tala everyone, I am one of the concierge leaders, and we are always looking for new mers to be concierges. we need concierges to greet newcomers and newbies here at SWF HQ,

Its a good way to meet newbies, and hang out with other mers and seafolk, we also work at various events throughout the calendar. If you are interested in joining please IM me.

thanks
[10:18] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): :-.,,.-:’'*Yayyyyyyy!!!!*:-.,_,.-:*'‘*
[10:18] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): ***Woot Woot ***
[10:19] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): ???? APPAWS! ????
[10:19] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): short and sweet announcement by Jewel
[10:19] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): SWF could always use concierges and officers!
[10:19] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): second up… Drakos has something for us!
[10:19] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille): You were Speedy Jewel, have you been eating special Kelp?
[10:19] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi) holds out the talking stick to Drakos
[10:19] drákos (kraken.darkheart): Thank you Fina
[10:19] JewelMermaid: lol
[10:19] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille) applauds Drakos
[10:19] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi) paws at drakos’s tentacles =^-^=
[10:20] Second Life: Welcome to the Chat Pavilion board owned by SWFBuilder Wizardly gave you ‘Regular Repeating Aquatic Gatherings at SWF’ ( Union Passage (83,231,0) ).
[10:20] drákos (kraken.darkheart): We are creating a central Landing hub for all things Aquatics at Fanci Deep SW (201,215,3)
[10:20] drákos (kraken.darkheart): This will have teleportation gates to all the aquatics Hangouts that have been registered with SWF. We may be limited to 24 entries initially but if this becomes successful, then we may expand this to more parcels.
[10:20] drákos (kraken.darkheart): This landing hub will also feature skills advertisement for our merfolk like Tail Makers/ Mesh makers/Sim Builders/ Texture builders/ Script writers etc. You must have done some aquatic work to be advertised here and must be a part of SWF and or other Aquatic groups. I am proposing having the same on the SWF website too.
[10:20] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): ***Woot Woot ***
[10:20] drákos (kraken.darkheart): Open to more ideas around this to make it a central hub for people to travel to various sims.
[10:21] JewelMermaid: can i say something?
[10:21] drákos (kraken.darkheart): The Haven group of Sims and the RP sims we have underway will also have direct two way entry to and from this Hub like Stargate.
[10:21] drákos (kraken.darkheart): Sure Jewel
[10:21] JewelMermaid: it sounds complicated
[10:21] JewelMermaid: and not newbie friendly
[10:21] drákos (kraken.darkheart): its got nothing to do with Newbies. Newbies already have SWF to help them
[10:22] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): mebbes this is more for experienced mer
[10:22] JewelMermaid: but you said it was for all things aquatic
[10:22] JewelMermaid: but its not swf??
[10:22] drákos (kraken.darkheart): Yes. this is promoting everything that anyone is doing for Merfolk and aquatics world
[10:22] drákos (kraken.darkheart): including SWF
[10:23] drákos (kraken.darkheart): but I am not catering this to help newbies out. They will be directed to SWF
[10:23] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): I think there’s no harm having it around… mewbies can explore it when they’re confident enough
[10:23] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): after they figure out how to wear their tails
[10:23] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille): thats a cool idea Drakos, to try to create a hub linking the different spaces
[10:23] JewelMermaid: ok
[10:23] drákos (kraken.darkheart): We are severly seggragated and separated
[10:23] drákos (kraken.darkheart): I want to unite us all
[10:23] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): :-.,,.-:
'*Yayyyyyyy!!!!*:-.,_,.-:*'‘*
[10:24] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): hangout portals sounds pretty col
[10:24] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): cool
[10:24] drákos (kraken.darkheart): more to come though. that was first announcement
[10:24] drákos (kraken.darkheart): Announcement 2:
Haven of Mermaids is now expanded to 4 sims (3 full regions and 1 Homestead). We are dedicating 1 Homestead sim for Merfolk who have plans and ideas to help expand the merfolk community.. eg. Creating pods/groups of mermaids, creating a hangout for mermaids, Creating any RP ideas or concepts.

At the moment I have 4 x 1/4 Homestead parcels (1 has already been taken so 3 remaining) and these will be available to people who have great ideas for the benefit of Merfolk FoC for upto 2 months to help you kickstart whatever project you have in mind. 2 Months Free period can be extended if needed after which, someone else will be given this opportunity.
[10:25] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille): I thought Haven had closed?
[10:25] drákos (kraken.darkheart): Far from it. It is being redone
[10:25] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): ***Woot Woot ***
[10:25] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): I had heard that it was closing
[10:25] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): great mews that it isn’t!

[10:26] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): Ooh…
[10:26] drákos (kraken.darkheart): though it is currently under severe demolition
[10:26] drákos (kraken.darkheart): so not worth visiting at the moment
[10:26] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): work in progress =^-^=
[10:27] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi) pictures Drakos in dragon form knocking stuff down
[10:27] drákos (kraken.darkheart): but we are offering free parcels and space for anyone who wants to start something innovative 😉

[10:28] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): that’s fun and exciting news, for any mer who wants the opportunity!
[10:28] drákos (kraken.darkheart): Announcement 3:
Hiroko is setting up a Mer Belly dance place so is looking to recruit Belly dancers and Mermaid pole dancers for an underwater club/hangout place she has had in mind for a while. So if you know anyone who wants to Belly Dance.. please ping Hiroko. She could not be here at the moment.

[10:37] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): Creations Park is partnered with Team Fox (the Michael J Fox Foundation), and all donations go towards research for Parkinson’s Disease.
[10:37] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille): Oh yes!

[10:39] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi) scratches the podium for a bit while waiting =^-^=
[10:39] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): BEFORE the routine announcements, however
[10:40] drákos (kraken.darkheart): I dont think that podium is going to last that long with so much scratching @ FINA
[10:40] Bernice Galtier: It’ll last about as long as the talking stick
[10:40] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): shout out to our very own MoonRiver Darcy, who is having a Black Friday sale @ Second Moon at Fanci’s Deep
[10:40] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille): woo
[10:40] MoonRiver Darcy smiles and waves
[10:41] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): 30% off storewide! She sent out an announcement in group chat earlier, so if you are in the mood for some shopping, grab the announcement for more details!
[10:41] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): and now for the boring – I mean, routine ones
[10:41] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): 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.

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.
[10:42] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): You might also consider being a hang out. Munin and Vokun are two of the best hang outs in SWF.
[10:42] drákos (kraken.darkheart): no they not
[10:42] drákos (kraken.darkheart): they are usually hungover
[10:42] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): aww
[10:42] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): HeHeHeHeHeHe
[10:42] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): good one =^-^=
[10:42] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): Please also check our mer-mall just past the headquarters – store space available and lots of great things.
[10:43] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): such as Moon’s store having a sale =^-^=
[10:43] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): Last but NOT least, be sure to visit the Safe Waters Foundation web site and event calendar at http://www.safewatersfoundation.com
[10:44] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): our new web-mer-stress Dana’s been hard at work keeping it running smooth as a nut!
[10:44] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): if no one has any other business… shall we end early and have more general chaos?
[10:45] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): scratch scratch
[10:45] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): okies =^-^=

SWF Gathering 26 Feb 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] Celtic Infinity: It’s been like this for at least a week.
[10:01] Celtic Infinity cheers for Miranda ???
[10:02] Miranda Barrowstone: Welcome new and old aquatics and friends!
[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.
[10:02] 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.
[10:03] 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 seafolk?
[10:04] Dana Enyo: AMAZING
[10:04] Miranda Barrowstone: nice
[10:05] Celtic Infinity: It was good, thanks! How was yours, Miranda?
[10:05] Miranda Barrowstone: uneventful
[10:05] Dana Enyo: I made a little mer dance video and threw it up on Flickr. It’s had 185 views, about triple anything else I’ve ever put there. “Dream MerDance at Safe Waters Foundation”
[10:05] Miranda Barrowstone: thats awesome
[10:06] Celtic Infinity: Tala, Munin 🙂
[10:06] Mun?n ß?a??e? (Darm Yaffle): rawr
[10:06] ?o?a ß?a??e? (Aurora Jarvinen): le mlem bro
[10:06] Miranda Barrowstone: Tala Mu
[10:06] Tamarushka (Tamara Czervik): Tala Munin 🙂
[10:07] GenevieveElizabeth Resident: Tala
[10:07] Miranda Barrowstone: Our priority today is support -we’re here to help each other.
[10:07] Tamarushka (Tamara Czervik): Tala Eliza 🙂
[10:07] Celtic Infinity: Tala, Genevieve 🙂
[10:07] GenevieveElizabeth Resident: :):)
[10:08] 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.
[10:08] Miranda Barrowstone: so here we go ?
[10:08] Miranda Barrowstone: Introductions
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. you’ll need to be up here for everyone to hear you.
[10:08] [V/W] Treasure Chest: Thanks GenevieveElizabeth Resident, for your donation
[10:09] Mun?n ß?a??e? (Darm Yaffle) blinks, “no stick!?” start to blubber
[10:09] 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).
[10:09] Miranda Barrowstone hands Mu a 4 foot long chewie
[10:10] Mun?n ß?a??e? (Darm Yaffle): rawrs!
[10:10] Marion698 Resident: tala munin:)
[10:10] Miranda Barrowstone: any one new? looks around
[10:10] ?o?a ß?a??e? (Aurora Jarvinen): im ooold
[10:11] Miranda Barrowstone: okay just haven’t seen you in a while then
[10:11] ?o?a ß?a??e? (Aurora Jarvinen): nope indeed
[10:11] Miranda Barrowstone: alrighty then.
[10:11] Miranda Barrowstone: Let’s move on to next part of this meeting.
[10:12] 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.
[10:12] 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)
[10:13] Miranda Barrowstone: If you would like to ask question or put forth support ideas – please im me now.
[10:13] Miranda Barrowstone: Some discussion is great – but please quickly offer to give a notecard or landmark if people will im you (that’s why we ask you to move to the podium ) so that others will have a turn. When you have finished please pass the imaginary talking stick back to me.
[10:14] 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.
[10:14] Miranda Barrowstone: anything? ideas to discuss?
[10:15] Miranda Barrowstone: if not we can move on to psa and promotions…
[10:15] Gabrielle de Lys (malagabi Resident) is online.
[10:15] Miranda Barrowstone: quick reminder
[10:15] Miranda Barrowstone: 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.
[10:16] 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.
[10:16] Miranda Barrowstone: You might also consider being a hang out.
[10:16] Mun?n ß?a??e? (Darm Yaffle): Sis is large enough to be a hangout. . .
[10:17] Miranda Barrowstone: Please also check our mer-mall just past the headquarters. space available and lots of great things.
[10:17] Mun?n ß?a??e? (Darm Yaffle): xD

[10:32] Miranda Barrowstone: a lot of sims have a story going on and at least one that I know of incorprates a super drive in the climax of the story
[10:32] Dana Enyo: A 2 week sale event run by the Seekers of Hope team.

[10:36] Miranda Barrowstone: thats lovely
[10:36] Dana Enyo: I don’t know how all that works yet. it would not come directly from RfL; everything gets done by teams.
[10:36] Dana Enyo: I can ask our team leader if I can place a kiosk in your gallery.
[10:36] Hiroko Nubalo: Terrif!!!…keep me posted…:)
[10:37] Dana Enyo: I”ll be putting either donation kiosks or “100% donated to RFL” vendors them in my shops.

[10:39] Dana Enyo: TY. It’s a long time; not to worry. But let’s make some money and beat this thing.

[10:40] Dana Enyo: SWF is not on the list for this year, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t be.
