[10:00 AM] 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!
[10:00 AM] Celtic Infinity cheers for Miranda!!!???
[10:00 AM] Dahlia Bouevier: Applause !!!
[10:00 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: ? waves back
[10:00 AM] 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.
[10:01 AM] 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.
[10:01 AM] 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 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I assume shrimp was had?
[10:04 AM] Dianna Muircastle: Sadly, no. I am the only one in the house who eats fish
[10:04 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I made my 3 grain bread. I need to make it more
[10:04 AM] Dianna Muircastle: In RL anway
[10:04 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: ahh
[10:04 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): I went to the asian market yesterday – they offer free services if I buy a fish
[10:04 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): • ?? • ?? • ???? (=_=)

[10:04 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): I wanted filleted
[10:04 AM] Motoko Kusanagi (Motoko Takeda): We had a pretty alright thanksgiving over here. Not much but enough to still be drowning in leftovers.
[10:04 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: yeah turns out my son has an allergy
[10:05 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Corvinus): So much awesome food this week.
[10:05 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: thats pretty cool Grace
[10:05 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): they do steaks where they slice the fish up across the backbone (not fillet – like sections)
[10:06 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): the fresh crab is ???? and so cheap compared to other sources
[10:06 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): they steam them for free
[10:06 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): but I don’t want my fish in sections I don’t think – still trying to figure it out – they cook it for you too
[10:06 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I found out the Asian market near me has lions mane mushroom. I wanna try it because I saw cooking channels show you how to make it look like steak. red meat an all
[10:06 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): yes and that sort of mushroom has healing properties if I reamember right
[10:07 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I’ve heard it
[10:08 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: oh we better get swimmin’
[10:08 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: Our priority today is support – we’re all here to help each other, cause we’re awesome like that.
[10:09 AM] 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.

[10:14 AM] Celtic Infinity smiles

[10:15 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: tech support it is.
[10:15 AM] Maya (Maya3359Misty Resident): i have a question
[10:15 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: whats the question?
[10:15 AM] ?S?r??? Fir?born? (Shimmeringscales6 Resident): ~Tala~
[10:15 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: Tala Sirena
[10:16 AM] Maya (Maya3359Misty Resident): i have 3 ao huds and everyone seems to not do what it says on the tin
[10:16 AM] Maya (Maya3359Misty Resident): kind of lacking
[10:16 AM] Celtic Infinity huggles PEACHES ?
[10:16 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: they might be.. arguing…
[10:17 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): you wear them all at once?
[10:17 AM] Maya (Maya3359Misty Resident): at moment i have GA wonderful
[10:17 AM] Maya (Maya3359Misty Resident): noooooo
[10:17 AM] Peaches2U Camino: HUGGLES CELTIC^^
[10:17 AM] Maya (Maya3359Misty Resident): one at a time
[10:17 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: my suggestion is to take the animations you like from all of them and put them in one and wear it
[10:17 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I can teach you how later
[10:17 AM] Maya (Maya3359Misty Resident): the Tala one i hated it
[10:18 AM] Esyhl of Tír na nÓg (Esyhl Resident): I’m getting used to tala. I was a huge fan of ocean sway but it’s not bento supported for newer tails
[10:18 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I think I have the tala one
[10:18 AM] Maya (Maya3359Misty Resident): and today i bought another
[10:18 AM] Esyhl of Tír na nÓg (Esyhl Resident): one BIG thing that might improve tala is hitting the “P” to turn off physics and using a swimming controller instead to supplement that.
[10:18 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Corvinus): Also, if you’re using them with the Riptide tail like you’re wearing right now, Aii has their small-ish AO built into the tail and it works much better if you mod their animations out of the tail
[10:18 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): I’ve not heard of the GA one
[10:18 AM] Maya (Maya3359Misty Resident): ocean sway thats the one very jerky
[10:18 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): I use ocean sway
[10:18 AM] Esyhl of Tír na nÓg (Esyhl Resident): It’s an older favorite of mine
[10:18 AM] Maya (Maya3359Misty Resident): best i have i look like i have a pulse
[10:18 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): nod nod
[10:19 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Corvinus): and use the Tala Mini AO instead of the default version
[10:19 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): can also combine them into the firestorm ao
[10:19 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): Exactly what Esyhi says – one of the biggest issues with Tala is that if there is a sim surround the Physics engine kicks in and throws you to the surface all the time.
[10:19 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): firestorm has classes
[10:19 AM] Maya (Maya3359Misty Resident): my problem with tala is no hover buttons
[10:19 AM] CeeBest Resident: sakura has 3 mer ao’s .. I’ve not tried them but look interesting too
[10:19 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): I use the Tala Bento AO animations in the Oracul/Kuso master AO hud.
[10:19 AM] Maya (Maya3359Misty Resident): just the swim buttons
[10:19 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): ooooh
[10:19 AM] Dana Enyo is Online
[10:20 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): what is that oracul one?
[10:20 AM] Esyhl of Tír na nÓg (Esyhl Resident): I don’t like that tala auto makes me flop around land even if I put myself in flight.
[10:20 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Corvinus): Yeah, when it comes to that, Maya, I just manually adjust my hover height as a mer.
[10:20 AM] Maya (Maya3359Misty Resident): think i will stick to this i am safe ish
[10:21 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Corvinus): nods
[10:21 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): so nice to see all the mer diversity today!
[10:22 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Corvinus): Perhaps we can organize a Mer AOs workshop once the holidays have passed.
[10:22 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): ooooo been looking for someone to lead that
[10:22 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Corvinus): I’d be happy to help organize/coordinate that.
[10:22 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): this space is available to use
[10:22 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid) pulls out a little black book and scribbles
[10:22 AM] ? ?????? ?????-???????? ? (Vesper Absinthe): That’s a great idea, Cecily, honestly.
[10:22 AM] Maya (Maya3359Misty Resident): sounds helpful very good idea
[10:22 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: thats a great idea
[10:23 AM] Marion Sopwith (Marion698 Resident): yes indeed!
[10:23 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): invite the makers to come maybe or donate a free one to raffle
[10:23 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): i dunno

[10:26 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: Perks include helping the group and being allowed to post ads in the group chat twice a day. Add in the fact that anyone can ask for the stick and that is great exposure.

Mer Mondays at the Sunken Atelier have returned, and we would love for you to join us! What is it? Sunken Atelier is an intimate fantasy speakeasy that takes anachronistic inspiration from baroque, rococo, neoclassical and impressionist art. The Atelier is underwater, but the place is magicked so any guests can breathe within its walls. There are references to alcohol, so we ask that underage avatars not visit. Music is from 1-3 PM SLT.

This week we’re also going to be joined with Vesper as a guest DJ! You won’t want to miss it!

  • 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!
