[10:03 AM] Chat Range: macar00n Earst [7m]
[10:03 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.
[10:04 AM] Chat Range: Marion698 Resident [6m]
[10:04 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.
[10:04 AM] Marion Sopwith (marion698): tala:)

[10:21 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: tala
[10:21 AM] Elaena (elaena.nebula): tala 🙂
[10:22 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (cecily.muircastle): I wanted to raise an potential issue and see if anyone here knows of a solution.
[10:23 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (cecily.muircastle): Roughly two weeks ago, I rented a stall at the Fanci’s Deep Mer Mall. Unfortunately, I have been unable to get an invitation to the rez group or find anyone who is able to add me.

[10:24 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): Chicky hasn’t been online since 8/22
[10:24 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (cecily.muircastle): And in the mean time, I’d recommend against renting new until the group invite situation has been resolved.
[10:24 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I haven’t see her but I get on during the weekend so no help there
[10:24 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): Grace hasn’t been online since 8/13

[10:25 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: thants why she delegated reasponibilty to us
[10:25 AM] Dana Enyo: I’ll try and Email grace, Cecily.
[10:26 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (cecily.muircastle): If anyone does see them around, perhaps we can recommend to them an automatic invite set up through the rental system to avoid further issues like this.
[10:26 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (cecily.muircastle): Thank you, everyone! ?

[10:29 AM] Christiana (christiana.lutrova): That’s fine, but thanks Mac 😉
[10:29 AM] Coco Osiris (cocohantas): ty sis hugs
[10:29 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).
[10:29 AM] Coco Osiris (cocohantas): waves to everyone
[10:30 AM] Mac (macar00n.earst): OK well if anyone asks I am only here as her agent.
[10:30 AM] Christiana (christiana.lutrova) giggles
[10:30 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: okay so are you all set then? cause Neve needs help
[10:30 AM] Christiana (christiana.lutrova): Yes, please help Neve 🙂
[10:31 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: whats up Neve?
[10:31 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): Nothing too big
[10:32 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): I’ve been on vacation in RL for a week, and whilst I was away I kept track of the clicks to my adboard here out of curiosity.
[10:32 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): and unfortunately, I’ve only had 3 clicks in the last ten days.
[10:32 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: ahh
[10:32 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): I think this is because the adboards are way far away from the landing point now.
[10:33 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I think so too
[10:33 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): I’ve had my adboard for over 210 days, with 50 days still on it.
[10:33 AM] Lara Star (larastar7): Probably, I dont even know where they are
[10:33 AM] Christine Wolvie (chriswolvie): Afraid I must be going. Lusa Em!
[10:33 AM] Lara Star (larastar7): Lusa em!
[10:33 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: lusa em Christi
[10:33 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (cecily.muircastle): lusa em
[10:33 AM] Elaena (elaena.nebula): Me too, I have to go 🙁 Lusa em
[10:33 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): we get this recommended to us, but I don’t know how we can maximise their usefulness… because right now, it’s not really useful, you know?
[10:34 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: yeah. I’m nt sure who did the layout.
[10:34 AM] Ohora Sessa (cathy.jackson): Lusa em Christine
[10:34 AM] Dana Enyo: Remember that renting the board also lets you send Group messages. That may be more valuable than the board itself.
[10:34 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (cecily.muircastle): Oh yes, that reminds me that I still need that role/permissions for notices
[10:35 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: oh if any new folk need the merfolk language card please lemme know
[10:35 AM] Lara Star (larastar7): Yes please!
[10:35 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): unfortunately the windlight here also means the boards are black until you cam up right in front of them.
[10:35 AM] Christiana (christiana.lutrova): yes, please 🙂
[10:35 AM] Dana Enyo: Cecily, I’ll add that to my Email to Grace. I hope she’s out there somewhere!
[10:36 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (cecily.muircastle): Thank you Dana~
[10:36 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): Perhaps considering moving them to the bottom of the seating here around the edge of the pavillion might be more useful? or having them right outside the the pavillion so when the meeting ends people can swim right out to see them 🙂
[10:36 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (cecily.muircastle): That’s a great idea!
[10:36 AM] Lara Star (larastar7): That second option seems less distracting for meetings
[10:36 AM] ? Matticus Marinea ? (matticus.blinker): +1
[10:36 AM] ? Matticus Marinea ? (matticus.blinker): i love this idea
[10:37 AM] Inventory item offered to Christiana (christiana.lutrova)
[10:37 AM] Christiana (christiana.lutrova) received your inventory offer.
[10:37 AM] Inventory item offered to Lara Star (larastar7)
[10:37 AM] Lara Star (larastar7) received your inventory offer.
[10:37 AM] Peaches2U Camino: distracting, lolol
[10:37 AM] Peaches2U Camino: i am snapping pics the entire meeting^^
[10:37 AM] Lara Star (larastar7): LMAO fair enough
[10:37 AM] Lara Star (larastar7): Ive taken some too
[10:38 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I like that idea
[10:38 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): tbh, I’d kinda like the adboards to be distracting, so people could see everyone’s stuff 🙂
[10:38 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I’ll bring it up
[10:38 AM] Lara Star (larastar7): Also a good point
[10:38 AM] Ohora Sessa (cathy.jackson): I have Fina’s Mermish translator so I’m good with the language
[10:38 AM] Peaches2U Camino: that one is actually a different dialect
[10:39 AM] Lara Star (larastar7): Wow there’s dialects?
[10:39 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I do need to swim to promotions though
[10:39 AM] Peaches2U Camino: go for it
[10:39 AM] Peaches2U Camino: am still drooling at fins here
[10:39 AM] Sebastian Seagrove (lobsterquadrille): Is Yala a regional dialect?
[10:39 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: lots of different fish in the sea, the languages will vary
[10:39 AM] Peaches2U Camino: what does yala stand for>>
[10:39 AM] Ohora Sessa (cathy.jackson): It seems to work well
[10:40 AM] Peaches2U Camino: is it hello yall? cause i like it a LOT

[10:40 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (cecily.muircastle): ?m?e?o?w?d?y?
[10:41 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: Quick reminders/announcements

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.
[10:41 AM] Bernice Galtier: lol
[10:41 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): hang on – advertising the boards and mall today feels a bit… iffy.
[10:41 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
[10:41 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: it’s part of the script
[10:41 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): no one can get the roles or perks right now :/
[10:42 AM] ? Matticus Marinea ? (matticus.blinker): you mean you have been reading a script this whole time :0
[10:42 AM] ? Matticus Marinea ? (matticus.blinker): oh wait that makes sense
[10:42 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I’m not that fast a typer Matt and my planning is sporadic
[10:43 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: you mght also consder your place being a hangout
[10:44 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: and now…

[10:59 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: 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!!
