016 SWF Gathering 30 July 2022

[10:01] 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] Lil Maximus: why are they called TENtacles if there are only 8? 😛
[10:02] Miranda Barrowstone: I think squids have 10
[10:02] Lil Maximus: oh
[10:02] Lil Maximus: heh
[10:02] 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.
[10:03] 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.

[10:55] Raks (rakshowes Resident): Shivers…….
[10:55] Miranda Barrowstone: depends on the sim
[10:55] Tarvos Resident: I mean, I understand the fish reproduction is particular
[10:55] Tarvos Resident: but I see the avi a bit incomplete
[10:55] Raks (rakshowes Resident): and our anatomy being different
[10:56] Tarvos Resident: thank you cecy!
[10:56] Miranda Barrowstone: not allowed here but other sims would probably be okay check the rules
[10:56] Deefer Doge: there are some that hide/reveal
[10:56] Tarvos Resident: sure sure, I wouldnt use it unless is adult and allows, but would love to know which ones would you use
[10:57] Tarvos Resident: I mean, human? doesnt fit
[10:57] Tarvos Resident: shark? not sure if its appropiate
[10:57] Raks (rakshowes Resident): we don’t mate very often…….
[10:57] Miranda Barrowstone: I imagine it would depend on the fish species we resemble
[10:58] Raks (rakshowes Resident): we are mammels
[10:58] Raks (rakshowes Resident): mammals
[10:58] Tarvos Resident: yes yes, but I am sure many here arent monks, maybe monki, but thats ebecause of the name
[10:58] Miranda Barrowstone: but overall it seems to be hidden inside
[10:58] ? ? ????? ? ? (Monkicat Giha): ( swear.I don’t know him..)
[10:58] Sebastian Seagrove (Lobsterquadrille Resident): I mean if you mated a merkitty with a dogfish you might get a strange result
[10:58] ? ? ????? ? ? (Monkicat Giha): lo
[10:58] Tarvos Resident: :O
[10:58] Raks (rakshowes Resident): it would be a fight!
[10:58] Bernice Galtier: You’d get an angry merkitty
[10:58] Miranda Barrowstone: my dad requested that I be a monk for 30 years
[10:58] Tarvos Resident: sebastian, didnt thought about that
[10:59] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): I don’t have experience, but I would think that some of the furry genitalia that you’d find on MP might apply…dragon may come close for a “scaley” creature~
[10:59] Miranda Barrowstone: mom papped him and he had to shorten it to 18
[10:59] Tarvos Resident: what happened after those 30 years? wait, I wont ask
[11:00] Miranda Barrowstone: I don’t even wanna think about it. I’m nine
[11:00] Tarvos Resident: :O
[11:00] Tarvos Resident: dont think about it
[11:00] Tarvos Resident: fI been a monk for mor than 23, so patience
[11:00] Raks (rakshowes Resident): It is well known that sometimes male Mers mate with human females…..
[11:00] Miranda Barrowstone: oof looks like we hit 11

[11:01] Aime Ravenhurst: I need to sneak away to another meeting. Many thanks!

[11:02] m?rrig?n m?ri? r?v?nhurst (Morrigan Ravenhurst): don’t know of anyone who makes mer-specific genetalia, sorry

[11:02] Tarvos Resident: oh! and now that I got your attention, a little announce!
[11:02] 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
