I got a bad rating on one of my shoes on SL Marketplace. It was a bit harsh and not complete truth. Some peoples here know that I wrote about it but I had to delete this blogpost as we (the customer and me) was able to talk.
The customer was confused about the permissions. The shoes show “no mod” in the inventory but this is due to the no mod script in the object content. The shoes are still modifiy if you edit them. I wanted to proof it with a screenshot and I did. I contacted the customer about that case. I didn´t expect much but was happy when a friendly person asnwered.. an hour later but she answered to me.
I was happy as she was friendly in IM. As there was also a bit trouble on the product comments we both did admit that we did react a bit to much pissed. She did admit that she was confused because there was sim problems in her region and also because the shoes are no mod in inventory. After I explained her about the permissions she said “smiles, I retracted my comments, np, sorry, I usually do get in touch with the vendor first, Lesson learned. I am happy with the shoes overall, they work well, and are great with my outfits.”.
Yes thats wat I did expect as I am ok with positive and negative critism. The customer can contact me each time and I´ll answer and try to help out. So now we did clarify our problems. Both said “sorry”. Me and she. I know I did overreact as well and had to say sorry too.
So not only she learned a lesson. I did as well.. “Contact an unhappy customer and ask for the problem and explain if you can..”. I think communication is the key.
I will take that lesson for the future now. Not every person is evil.. maybe there is confusion. Thats what I need to clarifiy first in the future before make a drama out of it.
One thing I really hate is when peoples behave aggressively just because the own team did lose a match in a game. Today we did play World of Warcraft with friends. We did join battlegrounds and talked about our tacticts on our teamspeak server. One of our friends is know for freaking out when anything in the game goes wrong. I think its ok to get upset sometimes if it is in a funny or smooth tune. But he sound like he is before destroying his microphone or maybe his computer. Today again and it was absolotly annoying. We lost a match and he was screaming that we all got bad mood.
I always have an public opinion and thats why I told him “Hey fellow.. can you please chill? It is really just a game and if we lose, we wont die!”. I did add “You drive us all mad.. You are 29 years old but seriously.. you act like a little frustrated child..” and “Get a life or chill out!”. Then… 30 seconds silence………………………………
Then he said “I do not have to put up with that”" and we all did hear a friendly teamspeak server voice “Player leaved your channel” which means he left. Ah k… just as well.
Seriously.. whats wrong with him? We play games in the evening because we want to chill out from the day. Peoples now said to me.. “Yea your right.. he´s just annoying.. someone had to told him”. We all were the same opinion. There is sometimes something wrong in a game and sure we can get upset sometimes. But its the tune… we often are upset but laugh.. it is fun.. a game. But he was freaking out and screaming in our all ears. Seriously I have neighbours and I did put down my speakers because I thought it is awkward if my neighbors can hear him.
However.. after he did leave our Voice Server, we had fun again nevermind if we did lose or win. Thats what I call great gaming and not stressful as he would be there. He is now probably angry with me. But I dont care. I had to tell him.
Did you ever have similar experience with someone? If so.. do you just listen and think your part? Or do you also prefer to tell peoples your opinion?
In a previous Blogpost, I told you already about 2ndhub. It is a Social Media Website related to Second Life and for Second Life Users. “Social Media” is probably not an unkown Concept for you. If not, then it is explained easy: Meet Peoples, Make Friends, Get known!
I think apart from making Friends inworld, lots of us use already Services like Twitter and Facebook to connect with Peoples who use Second Life. The basic problem is that Twitter and Facebook is not only used by Second Life Residents. So when we only want to meet and read Informations about Second Life, we need to filtering. But we do not have to do it on 2ndhub! And that is handy!
It doesn’t matter whether you want to connect because of Business-Reasons or because you just want to connect with Peoples from Second Life so that you can make new Friends. For each reason they have a Section and you wont be disturbed by one of them. The Layout is clean divided in Private Profiles and Business Profiles. That must be the reason why this Website becomes so interesting for differend Second Life Users.
Today I did read the Announcement that they reached 440 new Members in just 4 Days. I became nosy about the precise number of members and had to ask Mason Kingsford (Owner). He was very friendly to me and told me it is not a Secret! 2ndhub has today over 3100 Profiles which is in my Opinion very much. As we see.. it is doing well and I guess it will increase more. Many of us are already there and I just can suggest those who still dont have a Profile there, to hurry up!
You can find a 2ndhub Tour here.
Thanks for reading.. oh and by the way.. You can find my Profile there as well. Just contact me if you like.
I have some special Promo Offers running on SL Marketplace. You can check them out here if you like:
Yesterday I was invited to the “Howdy Neighbor Day” of the Lionheart Estates.
This is a meetings of Lionheart Residents and of course there friends! Some time ago I did write
already a blogpost about this Event which they hold often at the Lionheart Community.
You can find the Blogpost here: Lionheart´s Howdy Neighbor Day. And you can read about the Howdy Neighbor Day on lionheartsl.com.
Much grass has grown!
Yes! When you compare both pictures above (left: new auditorium Picture/ right: old auditorium Town Hall Meeting Picture).. you notice the difference. Much grass has grown! That was the first I noticed when I arrived yesterday. Well I gave up my old Parcel on Lionheart some time ago and took a Second Life brake for a while. But I am back since four days now and this is probably the reason why the first thing I noticed was the grown grass and probably also the reason why I gave this blogpost this headline. Excuse me.
Howdy Neighbor Day!
If you are Resident on the Lionheart Estates, I am pretty much sure you know about this meetings. If not, it is explained easy. The thing is that the Headline of this Event explaines it already good. Anyway it is something special I must mention again and again when I attend as it is not something usual on other Estates I´ve seen.
The Howdy Neighbor Day is an good opportunity to meet and greet your Neighbor´s. Yesterday for example we hold an Introduction of Participants. It took some time but it is still essential. Second Life can be pretty anonymous sometimes. But with these Neighbor Day´s you can become acquainted with peoples around your Parcel. So when the Neighbor´s introduced them self which was for sure optional, we got Topics to talk about. Introduction of Participants usualy starts shy but ends cheered up.
So apart from get to know each other better.. we had also differend Topics and good mood.
Thats why I think it is again a Blogpost worth.
I did enjoy this Event but one or two hours later I had to go. The Eurovision Song Contest awarding of score tooks my attention then
But as the Howdy Neighbor Day´s usualy are hold as long as the last one goes.. I am pretty much sure the Neighbor´s who remained had fun beyond.
If you want to be part of this Community and find a good Home.. then check out the Website: Lionheart Virtual Estate
These girls sneakers are pink on white. You can resize them via script if you need to.
But they should fit already for girls as I did wear and adjust them. If not.. resize them. It is easy via script.

You must know this post here will be a general blogpost.. yes maybe a complain specially about World of Warcraft. I had an interesting discussion yesterday with my friends from reallife.
Today we are five of our clique who still play World of Warcraft sometimes. Sometimes we are one more or less. But let me compare this to some years ago. We were more then twenty peoples of our real life clique who played together World of Warcraft. Additionaly we had twenty and more peoples we met in World of Warcraft. We said they are friends too. Lets count together… we was able to setup a guild with over fourty and I believe we had more then fifty players in our guild. But it was not an anonymously guild because most did know each other from real life and the others became friends as well, with the difference that they did live just not in our hometown but instead of that in another town. However.. there was something which hold us all together and it was World of Warcraft and a nice guild constitution. Yes we had rules! No flaming! If there is a problem… only real and fair discussion! We had more rules.. and we kicked anyone who wanted to brake our rules. But we didnt need to do often. Our guild was a bunch of peoples who did respect each other even if they had another opinion sometimes. But we had peoples with great attitude. Something else did hold us together. We had success but something which is more vital, we had fun together!
Yes when I talk about fun then I really mean fun!
Have you ever been on a teamspeak server (voice chat) where fourty peoples celebrate loud that they have just killed an heavy raidboss (non player character)? If so.. you know what fun is. If not.. you missed something. But I can tell you this was often a real party. Peoples really couldn´t calm oneself. I think this did hold us together. We did go raiding in Molten Core with fourty players, we did go raiding Blackwing Lair with fourty players and we did invade Temple of Ahn’Qiraj with fourty players. We had real partys when we completed these runs. Peoples did laugh, kidding and scream on our voice server just because they was happy to complete something which was difficult enough. We had success together and we became strong company.
Ok back to our discussion yesterday. We did remember this time. And we all were the opinion it was an extraordinary experience. Something great!
So you maybe ask why we have been over fourty players some time ago and today only four, five or six players? Some of you think it was maybe due to reallife? You think peoples became mature and didnt want to play games anymore? If you think that.. then you are wrong. I can tell you the truth as I still talk with some friends. Many of them are still my reallife friends. Most of them became just disapointed with the game and many belive there were some pretty ugly and design decisions from “Blizzard” the maker of “World of Warcraft”. If you are able to setup a fourty player guild, it is just sad if Blizzard removes these fourty player raids. They did change it so that there was now twentyfive and ten player raids. Our guild did burst on that design decision pretty soon. We was a team and didn´t really want to split our guild in two sections. That was not our target but we had to do. Soon we did lose a half of our players. I think it was just more diffiuclt to manage two raids instead of one huge raidgroup. Ok but now were still enough players to join twentyfive player raids.
Blizzard never stops to install patches on your computer and they never stop to make changes. If new content arrives, players like it. But if they change to much on the mechanic.. to much changings on the base frame.. yea at least the old players might be scared of these decisiones then. But some of us believe today that these decisions came because Blizzard wanted to bring in many new players. You can say World of Warcraft was a hardcore game.. a niche and maybe something peoples called “Nerd Game”.So we think Blizzard´s targed was to get more into the casual market. So they changed the game so much that it was easy now.. easy enough for the casual who anyway just want to play 6 hours a week. You was now able to get any ingame item faster then before. But those who liked the game before.. the hardcore´s.. they had trouble with this gamedesign decision´s. At least it was the reason why our guild lost many players. It was a complete renovation also for every class. Maybe they did success by getting new and lots of new players. But as I said.. some oldboys and oldgirls from the very first minutes of World of Warcraft became scared so that they stopped to play.
Me and four, five and maybe six player of our clique still play World of Warcraft time to time. But often we remember back to our great times and we said it will never be as it was. But we still have fun today.. we are a little group who now mostly join player versus player battlegrounds. Yes and sometimes we go raid with other peoples we dont know. But World of Warcraft has changed. Or maybe we changed? At least it is not as it was and thats why we are so honest to say sometimes that this soon will have an end also for us. We already play other games more often then before. Its not only World of Warcraft anymore. We have already alternatives as the overall experience in WoW has changed to much for us. And thats why we did discuss it yesterday. When we do.. we do it sad.
One thing we learned.. a game isn´t just a game. Thats only what those flaming news in television telling you. No! A game is more! You bring in your friends and you meet new friends. Those who dont understand.. they never will understand. Apart from playing a game together we had great conversations on our teamspeak server over several years and not only related to World of Warcraft… No in fact we did talk about anything from our world. Oh and we did visit peoples from our guild, which we didnt know before in real life. We traveled by train and had a great weekend with peoples we never seen before. That means we did make new friends we still have today.
This is something we got from this experience. Maybe the game will stop to be interesting for us sometime. But our friendship wont!
I did need own land to setup a home and also to work on a new idea. Want to create some shoes and well.. maybe other clothes. But first experimenting with shoes and so.
I really didnt want to build in sandbox. So I had to search land. In the past I was happy with LionheartSL. So I found there new land and I am back now. But it is really a little parcel as I work on small stuff. I didnt want a big parcel. Maybe I make some pictures next days. I did setup all my furniture and now I feel very comfy there Cool that I still get a bonus because I already lived there. As I said.. I take pictures of my home some day.
Hello. I am back. Maybe you read some new stuff next time.. as I am back in SL with new inspiration.
But I still play World of Warcraft aside as well.
Sitting here in my Second Life Home, while I am reading on a german news website.. then I go back inworld and got a message from someone:
[10:55] ĆǻƤţåĬŊ-ĈŗĄžƔ: i’m a FAR better builder than you ^.^ If you have a problem with that then please feel free to find me on the mini-map, i’m British, so i doubt you will come hehehe. Muted.
[10:59] Miyo Darcy: what is your problem?
[10:59] Miyo Darcy: lol
[10:59] Miyo Darcy: do i know you?
How cool. Who cares if he is a better builder or not? I really dont care who is better in building.. Strange peoples in Second Life sometimes. And really I just wonder why he did write me. I was afk and I dont know him. I was reading in the internet. After browsing his profile I did notice he works with 3d Max. Wow cool! Well I use it as well and also Cinema 4d and Photoshop. But still not a reason to feel like a hero or? Really.. Strange peoples sometimes in out world.
Btw. he has a cool kiddy “hacker” name. Lol. Thats why I dont care to post his name her. I thought it would be funny.
