[10:02 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: Welcome to Safe Waters Foundation weekly aquatic support gathering. My name is Miranda. I will be leading today’s meeting.

Welcome new and old aquatics and friends!
[10:02 AM] Celtic Infinity cheers for Miranda!!!???
[10:02 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: ?
[10:02 AM] 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 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.
[10:03 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] Miranda Barrowstone: so how was your week me fishies?
[10:04 AM] Celtic Infinity: It was good, thanks! How was yours, Miranda?

[10:17 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: okay let’s keep swimming
[10:18 AM] Peaches2U Camino: true on the cuteness 😀
[10:18 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: so tech support…. aos, tails, glitches etc does any one need any help?
[10:19 AM] Miranda Barrowstone smiles
[10:19 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: When you are called on (and given our invisible talking stick) please swim up to this podium (so people can see you to im if needed) and share (very briefly and preferable in two or three sentences typed in advance as our meeting time is limited)
[10:19 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): couple of things here:
[10:19 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: ooh
[10:20 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: tech questions lets hear them
[10:20 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): If you’re using Riptide, make a copy and delete the animation and AO script inside, then it won’t conflict with your tala AO. Makes a huge difference to have one without anims in if you’re gettinng frustrated <3
[10:20 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: ah
[10:21 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): And secondly, if you like the wings that came with the Siren tail – they will work with Riptide. What you need to do is rez your Siren tail – take the script and animations out of it, in to your inventory. Then rez your Siren tail wings, and copy everything back in to the Wings. Then – your wings will animate properly whilst wearing any other tail :O
[10:21 AM] Peaches2U Camino: taking notes
[10:21 AM] ? Matticus Marinea ? (Matticus Blinker): ok now i need the siren tail on my avie.
[10:22 AM] ? Matticus Marinea ? (Matticus Blinker): it almost JUST worked for legacy M too
[10:22 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): hahaha Matti, the wings are SO beautiful. Tamzin Xigalia and I were playing with the wings with Riptide today 😀
[10:22 AM] Dana Enyo: Remember the transcript of this meeting will be on the Website! You can go back and read what Cheeky just told us.
[10:22 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): I’m happy to talk people through it if they drop me an IM <3
[10:23 AM] Peaches2U Camino: yaaaaay
[10:23 AM] Dana Enyo: Go to today’s meeting, use FIND IN PAGE (usually ctrl-F) and type a word like “riptide”–you’ll jump right to this part of the meeting.
[10:23 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: thats a handy feature
[10:24 AM] Dana Enyo: In fact, you can use our SEARCH right from the home page. “riptide” will probably take you right to the page AND that word on the page.
[10:24 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I will be forever impressed on the work you do for the website

[10:37 AM] ? Matticus Marinea ? (Matticus Blinker): but truly “Trash” is my first release for the RIPTIDE tail. It is powered by the alienwaves. applier system. So if you own and use appliers from Mermade. or other stores which are on the same scripting system – then my tail applier will work seamlessly. But dont worry, I’ve also included instructions on how to apply my tail skins in the box as well.
[10:37 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): She’s wearing trash, but looks fabulous 😀

[11:02 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!!
