[10:01] Miranda Barrowstone: everyone please get comfortable
[10:02] Miranda Barrowstone: Welcome to Safe Waters Foundation weekly aquatic support gathering. My name is Miranda. I will be leading today’s meeting.
[10:02] Celtic Infinity cheers for Miranda!!!???
[10:02] Miranda Barrowstone: Welcome new and old aquatics and friends!
[10:02] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): •.¸’•.¸ ? ¸.•´¸.•
[10:02] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): .•• BRAVO!!!! •¨?•.
[10:02] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): ¸.•¸.•*´ ?•.¸`*•.¸
[10:03] 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.
[10:03] 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.
[10:04] 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.
[10:04] Miranda Barrowstone: so how was your week sea folk?
[10:04] Celtic Infinity: It was awesome, thanks!!! How was yours, Miranda?
[10:05] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): My week was restorative – balancing life better

[10:19] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): the sea lovers I mean
[10:19] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I think we started discord – haven’t tried it yet
[10:19] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I just discovered Zoom – would any of you consider meeting in a video chat once in awhile?
[10:19] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth) gasps! let them see the legged me???? shocking idea
[10:20] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): just wanted to open it to discussion if you care to share
[10:20] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): Zoom? no
[10:20] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): hehe
[10:20] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): not for everyone
[10:20] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): Zoom? nah. Discord voice? maybe.
[10:20] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): other ideas?
[10:20] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): welcome Paek
[10:20] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): asking ways we can find each other more often or in different ways
[10:20] Celtic Infinity: Welcome back, Naet 🙂
[10:21] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): (open disccussion – love to hear ideas)
[10:21] Paek ‘Ophiel’ Kwang-Joon ??? (Ophiel Resident): Tala to everyone !
[10:21] Paek ‘Ophiel’ Kwang-Joon ??? (Ophiel Resident): ?.•:… <)))X … *:•.?
[10:21] Hiroko Nubalo: is SWF on Dsicord?
[10:21] Naet Ravenhurst: to find each other? we could stalk each other with stalking huds and such
[10:21] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): Is the Discord group still invite only? I’ve been thinking about that since it was and wonder if that’s conducive to our community growth. It may have changed since then though 🙂
[10:21] Vivienne Koisera (Vivien0Koisera Resident): that’s an interesting way of connecting
[10:21] ßunny De?on??-W?t?rston? (Moon Heartsong): grace if i may
[10:21] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): yes we have discord
[10:21] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): SWF does
[10:21] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I have no idea how to use it yet
[10:22] Naet Ravenhurst: I’d love to join discord server
[10:22] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): was organized by …… um let me look at my contact list
[10:22] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I’ll try to get info about it onto the web page
[10:22] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): is discord hard to learn?
[10:22] ßunny De?on??-W?t?rston? (Moon Heartsong): Haven of Mermands and rest of the haven sims have a discord for those who wish to join
[10:22] Vivienne Koisera (Vivien0Koisera Resident): not neccessarily
[10:22] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): not at all
[10:22] Rusozee Bandalora V?????? (bioskyline Resident): not overly hard no
[10:22] Naet Ravenhurst: bunny, I’d love to join
[10:23] Rhodan Fishbottoms (Rhodan Kuhn): Discord is definitely the better option, since it allows people to keep their RL and SL much more separate. Zoom and Teams and the like are often already linked to their work or family accounts these days.
[10:23] Paek ‘Ophiel’ Kwang-Joon ??? (Ophiel Resident): Discord is ok … even though it is the most weird name ever chosen for a chatting program
[10:23] Nathanael Sommerfeld: ?
[10:23] Nathanael Sommerfeld: Greetings everyone!
[10:24] ßunny De?on??-W?t?rston? (Moon Heartsong): zoom is also more demanding on computers discord takes less to run
[10:24] Celtic Infinity: Tala, Nathanael 🙂
[10:24] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): interesting – I want to learn how to lead zoom meetings
[10:24] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): so you may see me trying it out – see if any interest
[10:24] Nathanael Sommerfeld: ?
[10:24] Nathanael Sommerfeld: Tala
[10:24] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): I think it’s important to note that
[10:24] Miranda Barrowstone: if I partake I will need a mic that works
[10:24] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): note what?
[10:24] ßunny De?on??-W?t?rston? (Moon Heartsong): i cant help with zoom only used it once but been on discord for long while
[10:24] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): Zoom is a terrible option because…
[10:24] Hiroko Nubalo: do you use your Avatar on Zoom?
[10:25] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): nope
[10:25] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): some people on SL want to keep RL separate
[10:25] ßunny De?on??-W?t?rston? (Moon Heartsong): no
[10:25] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): oooooh well maybe
[10:25] ßunny De?on??-W?t?rston? (Moon Heartsong): zoom is rl self
[10:25] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I do have a grace email
[10:25] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I wonder?
[10:25] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): if something in SL *requires* Zoom, I will not participate in it.
[10:25] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): and I’m not the only one
[10:25] Paek ‘Ophiel’ Kwang-Joon ??? (Ophiel Resident): microphone usually work
[10:25] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): Zoom is pretty awful, you’re limited to meeting duration and there’s no way I want to be on Zoom all day for RL work and then zoom for SL too.
[10:25] ßunny De?on??-W?t?rston? (Moon Heartsong): zoom is what drs use for the vid calls appts
[10:25] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): thats fine Fina – I’m not forcing it on anyone
[10:25] Paek ‘Ophiel’ Kwang-Joon ??? (Ophiel Resident): this i the compatibilty or plugin that sometimes is complicated
[10:25] Miranda Barrowstone: I agree Fina I really do not like zoom
[10:25] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I’m having job interviews in Zoom
[10:25] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): I think Zoom is a terrible idea for anything SL.
[10:25] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): ok ok I hear you
[10:25] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): agree
[10:25] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): Discord is okay
[10:26] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): don’t kill me if I try it – and I’ll understand if nobody comes
[10:26] Paek ‘Ophiel’ Kwang-Joon ??? (Ophiel Resident): yes because Zoom is mostly use for visio calls
[10:26] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): gosh – sometimes I have bad ideas?
[10:26] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): HA HAHA HA..haha!!
[10:26] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): okay here is your stick Miranda – hopping others have quesitons to put out to our community
[10:26] Miranda Barrowstone: no its fine… just might not work for everyone
[10:26] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): of course
[10:26] Hiroko Nubalo: all ideas are great!…soem work other may not, but keeps the mind flowing
[10:26] Miranda Barrowstone: I’m yen trillin times better with text
[10:27] Miranda Barrowstone: yeah exactly
[10:27] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): Zoom is a video meeting application with no social text based aspects, where Discord is specifically design to be an information repository with voice that allows people to catch up later.
[10:27] Vivienne Koisera (Vivien0Koisera Resident): all about circumstancs for people for Zoom people may have children or family situations in the background
[10:27] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): if you have a question or discussion topic, please IM Miranda
[10:27] Miranda Barrowstone: okay anyone else need the stick?
[10:27] Grace (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth) reviews her friend list for the discord information
[10:28] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): if

[10:29] ???? ???? (AkemiKiyomizu Resident): It’s a single link that takes you to all the links.
[10:29] Naet Ravenhurst: so, it’s the 1 link to rule them all?
