[12:01 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.

[12:18 PM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): need a general FAQ and where to go for more detailed information
[12:18 PM] Ψ ᴠᴇʟᴏʀᴜᴍ ᴇꜱ’ꜱᴛʀᴀᴅᴅɪᴀ Ψ (Velorum Cerulean): I know from being online a ton and watching chat the questions that seem to be most often asked by new mer, and even some mer who have been around a while.
[12:18 PM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): exactly – don’t worry someone will step up – mers are just like that
[12:19 PM] Fɪɴᴀ 小霜 (Sapphira Franizzi) rolls over on comfy cushion
[12:19 PM] Lily Lewellen: I know that Seafolk of SL Discord has a shopping list on those items. ^^

[12:19 PM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): great = we have the shopping tour in the “get a tail” section of our welcome board

[12:20 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: nice
[12:20 PM] Dana Enyo is Online
[12:20 PM] Ψ ᴠᴇʟᴏʀᴜᴍ ᴇꜱ’ꜱᴛʀᴀᴅᴅɪᴀ Ψ (Velorum Cerulean): If we could get a list on the website to the various stores with the SLURLs of the various stores that can also help.
[12:20 PM] Ψ ᴠᴇʟᴏʀᴜᴍ ᴇꜱ’ꜱᴛʀᴀᴅᴅɪᴀ Ψ (Velorum Cerulean): I know not everyone enjoys Discord.
[12:20 PM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): nope
[12:20 PM] Lily Lewellen nods
[12:21 PM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): that is incredibly difficult to keep up to date – that is why we have adboards and one shopping tour
[12:21 PM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): and the discord server apparently helps with that also
[12:21 PM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): would need a volunteer with a lot of time on their hands to do that
[12:21 PM] Ψ ᴠᴇʟᴏʀᴜᴍ ᴇꜱ’ꜱᴛʀᴀᴅᴅɪᴀ Ψ (Velorum Cerulean): Fair enough, lol!
[12:22 PM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): landmarks stay current if they do an adboard and helps raise funds for what we do
[12:22 PM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): and they are extremely cheap
[12:23 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: okay shall we move on?
[12:23 PM] ღcreamyღ (creamydeliciousness Resident): yes the adboards are great, I get 99% of my visitors from my adboard
[12:23 PM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): sounds good to me
[12:23 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: Quick reminders/announcements
[12:24 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: the aforementioned 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.
[12:24 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: Perks include helping the group and being allowed to post ads in the group chat twice per week. Add in the fact that anyone can ask for the stick and that is great exposure.
[12:24 PM] Lily Lewellen needs to make an image for an ad board…
[12:25 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: there was a lady that offered photography I can pass you her name…
[12:25 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: if you like
[12:25 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: You might also consider being a hang out.
[12:25 PM] Lily Lewellen: I do my own. ^^ Thank you though
[12:26 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: np
[12:26 PM] Fɪɴᴀ 小霜 (Sapphira Franizzi): was it the one who randomly IMs people

[12:26 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: possibliy
[12:26 PM] Lily Lewellen: I always get those IMs and block them.
[12:26 PM] Fɪɴᴀ 小霜 (Sapphira Franizzi): ain’t got the budget for professional photography
[12:27 PM] Fɪɴᴀ 小霜 (Sapphira Franizzi): I don’t need a professional photographer to make me look cute =^-^=
[12:27 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: I was gonna suggest seeing if she can get work as a photographer for group events or something
[12:27 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: yeah she does charge a bit
[12:27 PM] Fɪɴᴀ 小霜 (Sapphira Franizzi): I do not think there is money in SL photography.
[12:27 PM] Fɪɴᴀ 小霜 (Sapphira Franizzi): any one of us can just ctrl-shift-S and take a screenshot
[12:27 PM] ᴀʟᴇᴄ ᴀʙsɪɴᴛʜᴇ (Alec Absinthe): There’s also a lot of wonderful tutorials on youtube as well that help out with photography tips. As well as classes (I think they are free?) offered by some people in S:
[12:28 PM] Lily Lewellen: A few that I get are scammers.
[12:28 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: be mazed what people are willing to spend their money on
[12:28 PM] Rhodan Fishbottoms (Rhodan Fishtail): There definitely is money in it. But the peeps that make actual money do more than ctrl+s
[12:28 PM] Fɪɴᴀ 小霜 (Sapphira Franizzi): it seems to involve a lot of cold calling
[12:28 PM] Rhodan Fishbottoms (Rhodan Fishtail): And generally don’t go around IMing rando’s
[12:28 PM] Fɪɴᴀ 小霜 (Sapphira Franizzi): 2990L a shoot or something? I earn less than that from scripting
[12:28 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: I better move us on we do have people that wish to share
[12:29 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: really? you could probably charge more then
[12:29 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: and now…
