Look as stated before... closing the group chat in many places hinders the level they can fucntion at...
In ANY group you should remember a few things:
*That group's creator spend their Linden to create a group... respect that...
*The group chat you are opening is designed for THAT store/club and so on... respect that!
*IF someone spams and/or chooses to be immature, ignore it, notecard it and hand that to staff of that group, store/club
*DO NOT engage with the wrong do'ers in the chatroom
*IF you feel the need to say something to them, open their personal im box and do it there... NOT IN THE GROUP CHAT!
Ok so I have made the decision to shut off the "Group Chat" option for now.
This can not remain off for a long period of time as it hinders my staff's ability to perform their job.
I made this choice to give all of you a chance to cool down and come to terms with some items at hand in Second Life right now so that we can all keep our accounts as safe as possible and learn the best way to deal with the situation at hand the best way possible.
There is a phishing link going around.
Its appearing in personal ims and group chats.
Things to be aware of with this are:
*The people/residents spamming this link do NOT know they are doing it.
In fact their accounts have been compromised, therefore "telling them off" is not the appropiate way to handle this... they did nothing wrong!
*Marketplace link look like this: marketplace.secondlife.com
NOT LIKE THIS.... marketplacesi.altervista.org/
How to handle this situation?
*Let Linden Labs do their job, they are aware of this
*DO NOT reply to it in group chats or even ims... agian pointless the person does not know!
*DO NOT click on the link!
*IF you have clicked on the link that containts "altervista.org" CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD
*IF you have been informed your name was sending out this link... call LL
AND even better......
Stores/Clubs and so on can NOT keep their group chats shut off... this hinders our ability to do what we do and keep our businesses working.
In addition when there are situations with people acting wrong in the group chat wether it be spamming another store, club, event... anything that does not belong and ANY group chat not just Bitch Tail's please..... PLEASE!!! Do the following!
*Notecard or Im the situation to a staff member
*DO NOT respond in the chat... you may think your being witty and helping but instead your making it worse and lagging the chat so that the actual staff can not handle it properly.
*IF you feel compelled to say your peace... enter the person's personal im box!
Just to clear the air...
Bitch Tail is NOT affiliated with ANY store hands on...
I would rather my name NOT come up in comments and posts as I am not putting others names in my posts....
Bitch Tail does promote Cosmosis Designs which is a small/growing store on the Bitch Tail sim owned by Jayjustmight Tiponi.
I also support many other creators.... I do believe there is room for all and more within the vitrual Worlds.
Ok everyone... a bit off topic to say the least.... or is it?
I just took my children to see The Lorax and I have to say I was beyond shocked with the lessons it had within it! Lessons ALL creators, store owners and so on should open their eyes and minds to...
Yes even myself included!
Are you a Once Ler or a Mr. Ohare???
We are all guilty of wanting to be huge, wanting to shine.... but at what cost?
The Once Ler had a bit of greed and learned his lesson to late... it took the last tree falling to open his eyes... as the Lorax says the tree falls in the direction it leans.... be careful which way you lean.
Mr. Ohare wanted it all at whatever cost... and refused to learn a lesson and even consider a new approach and everyone around him left him.
The Once Ler assumsed responsibilty for what he had done and saw all through to till the solution to his wrong doings appeared and things where set right.....
Just a bit of Dr. Suess wisdom of the day.
Please note this is the song played when the Oncer Ler was bitten by nothing
but greed and ignorance... all the trees where being chopped down
(seems another likes my past tags :P )
ok its time for something fresh above your heads...
March 1st - March 15th ... Submit in a notecard your title idea for Bitch Tail
