[10:00 AM] Celtic Infinity cheers for Miranda!!!???
[10:01 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: ?
[10:01 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: please make your selves comfortable
[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] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid) dreams of peach cobbler
[10:02 AM] Peaches2U Camino: lolol
[10:02 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.
[10:02 AM] Miranda Barrowstone wonders what kind of shoes peach cobblers make
[10:02 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid) is bubble-less
[10:02 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): HA HAHA HA..haha!!

just click on the podium to sit on it or sit were you are if thats just easier.
[10:08 AM] 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 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: so any new folk here today?
[10:09 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: i’m gonna take that as a no
[10:10 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: yeah so lets swim on to tech support
[10:10 AM] 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.
[10:11 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): I have question for the group to answer if ok?
[10:11 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: absolutely
[10:11 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: go for it
[10:11 AM] Magical Mystery TOOO (TOOO Fall): of course
[10:12 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): oops sorry
[10:13 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): what to do if someone begs for lindens in SWF group or lands?
[10:13 AM] Dianna Muircastle: That’s against some terms of service for SL, I am sure, but I’ll have to look
[10:13 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): against swf policy too
[10:13 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: well I think mods can mute their chat…
[10:13 AM] Dianna Muircastle: I know that in a couple groups I am in they are quick to stop that
[10:13 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: but I’ve been reporting these bots
[10:13 AM] Dianna Muircastle: They give them one warning and then they are gone
[10:14 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): notify someone in the administrative team – we eject those people from the group after a warning
[10:14 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): exactly Dianna
[10:14 AM] Philantis Texan: in that case cana borrow 50 clams & Ill pay you back on Tuesday?
[10:14 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): can always let me know – becoming mer can become expensive – I’ve helped quite a few – but never if they are begging
[10:14 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid) stares at Phlantis
[10:14 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): first warnign Phil
[10:14 AM] Dianna Muircastle chuckles
[10:14 AM] Philantis Texan blinks
[10:15 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a shrimpburger today
[10:15 AM] Peaches2U Camino: ^^
[10:15 AM] Philantis Texan: hahaha
[10:15 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): Banning bots from regions isn’t always the best idea – some actually do some really interesting work.
[10:15 AM] Malli (MallinaMermaid Resident): What if I just seduce them for money?;)
[10:15 AM] Emerald (Emerald Farspire): oh that word again shrimp YUMMM
[10:15 AM] Peaches2U Camino: good one Phil n Miranda
[10:15 AM] Tirea Naring (TsioSan Ruby): Offers a fresh shrimp….
[10:15 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): it takes finnesse granted – but first instinct to give is destructive to our community methinks
[10:15 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid) jumps for shrimp
[10:16 AM] Emerald (Emerald Farspire): yummer thank you dips it into shrimp cocktail sauce ohh that is good
[10:16 AM] Tirea Naring (TsioSan Ruby): wigglely little things
[10:16 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I mean to ban them on an individual basis. I seriously can’t tel the diff between a bot and an av
[10:16 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): ejecting from group or banning them from group is something the admin team can do – but nice to warn them in IM
[10:17 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): other tech questions? everyone know how to sit?
[10:17 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid) chuckles
[10:17 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): Matticus made it possible for me to sit here!
[10:17 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: okay will do havn’t seen it in our group I don’t think but will do that from now on
[10:17 AM] Dianna Muircastle: Bots are useful there’s one that’s being worked on that can lead people to a fishing spot. Anyway
[10:18 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: if you have any pressing questions about merfolking in sl now is a great time to ask.
[10:18 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): we are getting our greeting bot back I think – my partner SWFGuide
[10:18 AM] Peaches2U Camino: begging for linden is a form of griefing, breaking that LL TOS needs no warning
[10:18 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid) warns Grace politely to hush up
[10:19 AM] Peaches2U Camino: that bot is hott
[10:19 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: thats true too and they all hold a script. its unlikely a newbling will copy it.
[10:19 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): and the mer guard bots shall return too
[10:20 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): Are they being run on Radegast, Grace? or are we going to be hosting them with a third party?
[10:21 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: okay all set on this topic then?
[10:22 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: any one else have a question?
[10:22 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): lol I just asked one haha
[10:22 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): oh I don’t know Cheeky
[10:22 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): sorry – didn’t see the question
[10:22 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): that has been delegated to the bot volunteer who remains anonymous
[10:22 AM] Philantis Texan: Why do they put bumblebees into cans of Tuna??
[10:22 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): so much of my life
[10:23 AM] CeeBest Resident: I think last meet you were going to discuss some AO’s ?
[10:23 AM] Tirea Naring (TsioSan Ruby): They add a bit of spice!
[10:23 AM] Philantis Texan: :0D
[10:23 AM] CeeBest Resident: lol yes

[10:23 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: they are warriors the tuna federation snuck in to take revenge for the sea
[10:24 AM] Tirea Naring (TsioSan Ruby): I would like to see some additional SITS that I could add to my AO.
[10:24 AM] Philantis Texan doubletakes yeah I thought you said Sits
[10:24 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I just go to shops or make my own.
[10:24 AM] Tirea Naring (TsioSan Ruby): I am not that smart.
[10:25 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: the ao I have allows me to add things to it
[10:25 AM] Tirea Naring (TsioSan Ruby): THe riptide tail only has two
[10:25 AM] Philantis Texan: heh
[10:25 AM] Tirea Naring (TsioSan Ruby): I know how to ADD…but not how to obtain.
[10:25 AM] Tirea Naring (TsioSan Ruby): one that will work.
[10:25 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): remember the animation booth at Fanci’s Deep mall has more animations for the newer bento tails
[10:25 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): not sure of sits
[10:25 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: well the mall in fancis has at least two animation stores
[10:26 AM] Cecily ????ère (Cecily Corvinus): So for the AOs, I am working on writing up materials for a class/workshop. I still need some more time to have everything together for it, so this will likely be in January. Also so we can allow some more time for the build team to work on HQ~
[10:26 AM] Dianna Muircastle: Sounds awesome, Cecily! 🙂
[10:26 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: but if you give me an idea of the kinda sit you want I can try and make it
[10:26 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: if its not complicated
[10:27 AM] Tirea Naring (TsioSan Ruby): Oh…just alternates, to the two that you get with the AO…so there are nice variations.
[10:27 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): firestorm ao in theory works
[10:27 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): I can focus enough to do more than use ao’s I’ve purchased
[10:28 AM] Jonas (angeloflove07 Resident): moi je modifie le tala ao en y ajoutant mes animations dans l’ao et je modifie la note card à l’intérieur
[10:28 AM] Jonas fr>en: I modify the Talao by adding animations in the AO and I modify the card note inside
[10:29 AM] Tirea Naring (TsioSan Ruby): I know that certain animations only work with certain tails..
[10:29 AM] Tirea Naring (TsioSan Ruby): just don’t know HOW to KNOW which will work.
[10:30 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): someone will work in out
[10:30 AM] Jonas (angeloflove07 Resident): bento and non bento i believe
[10:30 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): maybe go to firestorm class on their ap
[10:30 AM] Magical Mystery TOOO (TOOO Fall): trial and error?
[10:30 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): and will share with others – no doubt this too will develop
[10:30 AM] Tirea Naring (TsioSan Ruby): Is the riptide a BENTO ?
[10:30 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): it is how I learn mostly Magical
[10:30 AM] Magical Mystery TOOO (TOOO Fall): ?
[10:31 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): Riptide is Bento, yes.
[10:32 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: we should swim on. are we done on this topic or do you need more time?
[10:32 AM] Tirea Naring (TsioSan Ruby): OK…see…learned something today. THANK YOU!
[10:32 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): I’d like an extra week please, no ketchup
[10:32 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: lol we can discus AOs next week lol
[10:33 AM] Tirea Naring (TsioSan Ruby): Yay!
[10:33 AM] Magical Mystery TOOO (TOOO Fall): Most tails come with AOs, don’t they?
[10:33 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: thank you for your questions
[10:33 AM] Magical Mystery TOOO (TOOO Fall): Mine did
[10:33 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: generally yeah
[10:33 AM] Tirea Naring (TsioSan Ruby): Yes…just limited sometimes
[10:33 AM] Philantis Texan inspects at his fabulous scales..
[10:33 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): no, the older style tails do not come with ao
[10:33 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): Newer tails tend to come with very limited AOs
[10:33 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: Quick reminders/announcements (ad-boards are not up yet)

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.
[10:34 AM] CeeBest Resident: btw this may be as much a question as it is a solution – has anyone experienced having their tail go out of shape when you sit for a dance.. I found it’s because the ao puts you in sitting position auto when you sit for dance.. what solution are you using ? I did find one solution on MP
[10:34 AM] Tirea Naring (TsioSan Ruby): YES!
[10:34 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): we had a suggestion for “selfie” adboards – individuals renting for a week to intro self and support swf
[10:34 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: interesting
[10:35 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.
[10:35 AM] Kiel (Kiel Wiefel): I just wanted to remind everyone that I am providing ad-board support for SWF. Please contact me any time you have questions or need help.
[10:35 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): I’m working to get donation chests out again

[10:46 AM] Tirea Naring (TsioSan Ruby): Tala Everyone.
I just want to remind everyone that my tiny little store “REAL WOMEN” is open
in the mall here.
Nice pictures for your home, mostly Mer related.
I can also make frames for your pictures if you wish.
The LM is in the AD BOARDS here…you don’t have to remember.
There is a “freebe” in my shop…not part of the hunt….free anyway.(Grin).

[10:49 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): Also, I just wanted to nudge everyone gently – Miranda does such a good job for us every week hosting the meeting. If we can all try, especially in the promo section, to only share important things when called on to do so, it means it’s not so much of an admin headache for her to tidy up the minutes at the end of our meeting <3

  • 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
