[10:01 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.
[10:02 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.
[10:02 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.

[10:20 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: okay that didn’t work
[10:21 AM] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): we should ask builder to remove them
[10:21 AM] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): this is gonna use up LI in a hurry
[10:21 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: Quick reminders/announcements
[10:21 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: 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.
[10:22 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): Regarding Ad Boards, I have a question
[10:22 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: Perks include helping the group and being allowed to post ads in the group twice a day. Add in the fact that anyone can ask for the stick and that is great exposure.
[10:22 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: You might also consider being a hang out.

Please also check our mer-mall just past the headquarters. space available and lots of great things.
[10:23 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: Be sure to visit the safe waters foundation web site and event calendar at http://www.safewatersfoundation.com/#home
[10:23 AM] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): Munin is a hangout
[10:23 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: okay Neve what do you need?
[10:23 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): I’ve had an ad board for almost a year now, and honestly, I don’t get many clicks.
[10:23 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): When new people land here, do they land at the ad boards?
[10:24 AM] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): nupe
[10:24 AM] m?rrig?n m?ri? r?v?nhurst (morrigan.ravenhurst): perhaps they should?
[10:24 AM] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): dat a gud idea
[10:24 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: no but they should land near teleporters that give them the option
[10:24 AM] Peaches2U Camino: I have a suggestion
[10:25 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): Is there a way we can promote the fact they’re there to people? I don’t see the return on investment I’ve been hoping for, nor the traffic, but I continue to pay just to support SWF.
[10:25 AM] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): hear hear
[10:25 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: oh?
[10:25 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: hrm
[10:25 AM] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): TPs to adboards are worthless
[10:25 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): agree Fina.
[10:25 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: yeah we should talk to Builder about this
[10:25 AM] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): I second the idea to move the landing next to the adboards
[10:25 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): I don’t get conversions to sales, because I just don’t get visitors coming from here.
[10:25 AM] Peaches2U Camino: you know how you see hooman sports events?
[10:26 AM] Peaches2U Camino: the adboards are right there, where we can all see and click on them when we land
[10:26 AM] Peaches2U Camino: but why not right here
[10:26 AM] Peaches2U Camino: around the gathering location
[10:26 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): they’re not at the landing point anymore, Peaches.
[10:26 AM] Peaches2U Camino: have newcomers land here
[10:26 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I don’t have an asnwer for that
[10:26 AM] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): let’s raise this up
[10:26 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I’m never in charge of building
[10:27 AM] Peaches2U Camino: i mean baseball, football, basketball
[10:27 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): I think that’s the problem – they used to be inside the old pavillion where everyone landed and so they saw a wall of info right away and it was great 🙂
[10:27 AM] Peaches2U Camino: they are located where the people gather
[10:27 AM] Peaches2U Camino: where they can be seen
[10:27 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): Peaches – you mean like the edges of the pitch :O that’s a cool idea.
[10:27 AM] Peaches2U Camino: and in sl, it would also be where they could be pointed out and clicked
[10:27 AM] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): actually I’m not sure what the procedure is
[10:27 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: yeah I really hadda swim to find them
[10:28 AM] Hiroko Nubalo: Can post notices? Some need to be bonked over the head.
[10:28 AM] m?rrig?n m?ri? r?v?nhurst (morrigan.ravenhurst): how does one get permission to send notices in group?
[10:28 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): You get notice perms by having an ad board or stall in the mall – so for that reason, the board is worth it.
[10:28 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: as far as I know its always been in group chat.
[10:29 AM] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): hurr
[10:29 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: ahh
[10:29 AM] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): really?
[10:29 AM] m?rrig?n m?ri? r?v?nhurst (morrigan.ravenhurst): I have an ad board but I don’t have notice perms
[10:29 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): yes Miss Fina
[10:29 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): I would bring that up with someone who’s a moderator in the group.
[10:29 AM] m?rrig?n m?ri? r?v?nhurst (morrigan.ravenhurst): ok
[10:29 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: I’m hoping to find out who’s in charge of that. I think people are on vacation
[10:30 AM] m?rrig?n m?ri? r?v?nhurst (morrigan.ravenhurst): thanks
[10:31 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: okay swimming on to PSA
[10:31 AM] Ohora Sessa (cathy.jackson): You need to be given the role of an SWF Advertiser by an Admin to send notices
[10:31 AM] ???? ???? (neve.nebula): exactly – and an ad board or stall qualifies you, I beleive.
[10:31 AM] F??? ?? (sapphira.franizzi): ooh that’s why I has it
[10:32 AM] Ohora Sessa (cathy.jackson): Yes
[10:32 AM] m?rrig?n m?ri? r?v?nhurst (morrigan.ravenhurst): Miranda, you are admin
[10:33 AM] Peaches2U Camino: can tell you now, not all the admin have the same rights
[10:33 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: yeah I just realized that. im me I’ll fix it
[10:33 AM] Peaches2U Camino: dang your awesome
[10:34 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: lol considering how long it took me to remember this?
[10:35 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: okay lets do our best to ignore the spores
[10:35 AM] Ohora Sessa (cathy.jackson): I was given the roles of Advertiser and Volunteer so I can send notices now
[10:35 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: and now…
Public service announcements
Now we allow a limited time for publicity. Who has something fun to share? A store, new sim, event, or news? If you wish to share here – please im me so that I can call on you.
[10:36 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)
[10:36 AM] Hiroko Nubalo: from what i gather until recently, just until recently obtaining an add board qualifies you to send notices. Now i believe u also need to contact and Admin.
[10:36 AM] Hiroko Nubalo: i could be wrong
[10:36 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: our first speaker, Ohora

I have also added givers you can get breathers out of, and mer bubbles if you wish.
