It's got to come from the right place, it's got to come from the artist...not out of fear. AKA: Go Amanda. :)
A fun new issue, tipped by Miss Samantha Poindexter: Second Life itself, from website on down, cannot deal with the implications of having an adult continent.
Think I'm wrong? The events system is disallowing events to be posted for Zindra. Oh, pardon me--disallowing Mature-rated events to be posted for Zindra.
But why, I hear you ask. It's Zindra! Of course Mature events can be listed!
Well, no, and that's why that JIRA exists--because it's telling people they can't list Mature events on Zindra. Because you can't list Mature events on a PG sim.
Let me say that again, because it sounds vaguely important: People are being told Zindra is PG..
The mind reels.
And Massively covers the unbanning process in detail: pity it won't work when the appeal's already failed, or when your account's been hacked, though.
Last trip through Carnival of Doom? Apparently Rezzable is leaving SL, which is going to be quite the ding in LL's coffers, but more importantly is the why behind it.
I'd just gotten the delivery from VenDom's Midnight Mania board, so I decided to change and go over.
Maybe I've just been missing it all this time, but I'm fairly sure they put in a new area, along with some new games--or at least, got a few more of the games working.
I'm not entirely sure what the new area is--it seems to feature largely trees. And more trees. And some more trees. And off in the distance, a fire, some beheaded chickens and a set of playable (soundless) drums.
Still, they were fun to play for a while.
And one has to admit, the red glow? Looked fabulous with what I was wearing.
And of course I had to go out into the middle of the cornfield and ponder life, death, the universe, sim departure, and He Who Walks Behind the Rows.
Note for anyone who might want to go to VenDom and win this: NOT SUITABLE FOR CUDDLING.
Also, ATLUS has left SL. Whomever was behind Erotica Island? Also gone. My friend's store in Cursed is gone--well, that one I expected. And whatever I wanted to keep track of in Pucci is long, long gone.
Now, granted, some of those slots I was holding onto out of desperate sentiment. Sanctum Sanctorum, October Country and Lunitarium were each taking up one slot of the Mysti's memory. (Granted, Lunitarium is the one I can go back to, someday, and will if my fortunes improve--but the others? Don't even exist at this point, at least not in original form.)
So many people moving away from Second Life. So many creative people, builders, thinkers, players, going away.
This isn't a good thing.
