[12:02 PM] Savanna Nightingale: tala em
[12:02 PM] 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.
[12:02 PM] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): puRrrRrRrrrrRrr
[12:02 PM] 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.
[12:03 PM] Peaches2U Camino: slive^^
[12:03 PM] Peaches2U Camino: i like that
[12:03 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: sl live as opposed to rl live
[12:04 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: ? I’ve been sayin’ it for years, this year people are noticing it
[12:04 PM] 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.

[12:35 PM] Granny Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): I keep telling her not to rely on me for things to update – especially lately as I feel icky
[12:35 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: yeah it was. I feel it was. I liked the design of the sisters way better mostly cause I hated their hair in the cartoon
[12:35 PM] Granny Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): so feel free to reach out to her – she’ll let me know if someone tries to push the envelope out of our mission areas
[12:36 PM] Christine Wolvie (ChrisWolvie Resident): But, if you’ve seen it and you’d like to post an opinion, go ahead and answer the post if you’re part of the group. And, if you’re not, go ahead and ask the group moderator to add you on. We get all sorts of art and other posts about TLM on there…and the member list has doubled since the live-action film came out.
[12:36 PM] Christine Wolvie (ChrisWolvie Resident): So…if you love Ariel like I do, become part of our world. 🙂

This meeting is now adjourned. Remember our SWF goals:

  • to assist those considering an underwater life
  • 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!!
