033 SWF Gathering 7 January 2023

[10:00 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!
[10:01 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.
[10:01 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.
[10:02 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: so how was your week seafolk?

So here we go!!

Thank you! ? Cecily
[10:18 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): <3 Cecillyyy
[10:18 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: and thank you. ?
[10:19 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: go ahead and ask Zu
[10:20 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: you have time, it’s okay
[10:21 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): my first year here on SL, I lived in the Blake sea. I decorated my home so well it was a popular diving spot. But as years went by, there have been less and less mermaids/sirens. I was wondering what we could do to bring back a boom for our kind?
[10:21 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): is your space in the search?
[10:21 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): and do you have an adboard here?
[10:21 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): no, I gave u p my home long ago and alot of the popular mermaid spots are now gone
[10:22 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): ah
[10:22 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: hrm.. we have been discussing ways to attract mer folk to our places
[10:22 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: are you considering a new place?
[10:22 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): the absolute must-do for everything you want to draw traffic to is list in search – 30L a week, that’s all – it’s so important.
[10:22 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): Agreed~
[10:23 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): like… Mermade and Zenchild do amazing mods but I feel like they don’t get a whole lot of exposure. Would SWF be interested or willing to make an event?
[10:23 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): but also, personally I can tease that there are some projects we have underway
[10:23 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): specifically for sea folk
[10:23 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): ??
[10:23 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): 😀 😀
[10:23 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): It’s gonna be a good year!
[10:24 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): seafolk and fantasy-oriented, but not in an overdone way
[10:24 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): exactly
[10:24 AM] Marion Sopwith (Marion698 Resident): tala:)
[10:24 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: we also have the hang out system. having your plas\ces on the hang out list help people become aware of your places
[10:24 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): Tala Marion~
[10:24 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): Tala~
[10:24 AM] Marion Sopwith (Marion698 Resident): sorry for coming late
[10:25 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): one of the key things is Zu, is that unfortunately it’s the winter and the community in SL as a whole drops, and the mer community especially – who wants to play in the sea in the winter, yk?
[10:25 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): Things will pick up once the grid-wide snow fascination subsides.
[10:25 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: yeah I got hyperfocused on making toys and merkid furnture on my alt
[10:25 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): haha well said
[10:25 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): me, I love the cold waters 🙂
[10:25 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): that’s awesome
[10:26 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): I think from an attractiveness standpoint, Flickr pictures that capture the imagination
[10:26 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): and YouTube videos
[10:26 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): Personally, from a business perspective, the winter hasn’t hit as hard as I expected which is great. I have an affiliate vendor for Nemissa in my store and can definitely confirm sales of the tale are pretty strong.
[10:26 AM] Peaches2U Camino is Online
[10:26 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): there’s a good amount of Sims lovers who cross over into SL when they see gamers showcase things in SL
[10:26 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): The best promo is to be mer where mer’s are not normally found – I shop in a tail, and people ask me about it, you know?
[10:26 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): but it would be cool for a full out mermaid event every 3rd month to be done. The cove event is an anual thing that most new mers miss out on
[10:27 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): And like Cecily says – great flickr, twitter and youtube presence.
[10:27 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): plus it’ll bring more traction to our seafolk
[10:27 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): that too
[10:27 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): I’m not a social media person per se
[10:28 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): but I do see some benefit is that to expand a community
[10:28 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: neither am I, but I find it a useful tool
[10:28 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): you should hire someone that can do that for you :O
[10:28 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): Are you thinking a shopping event Zuzu? The Cove hasn’t been around a while I think, The Guild is still around, Under The Sea I’m not sure if it will be repeating this year. But in the weekend sales, especially in Wanderlust, there’s a lot of mer or acquatic stuff – In Wanderlust is Cecily in Week 1 of the month, Matti (Krature) in Week 2 and me (mermade) in Week 3 😀
[10:29 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): The guild is closed, she made an announcement in december
[10:29 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): NO really?
[10:29 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): Yes! We’ve got mer stuff in almost every Wanderlust Weekend and Enchantment round now~
[10:29 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): I had Nooo X( idea about the Guild!
[10:29 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): yes wonderlust and We <3 roleplay
[10:29 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): yea she closed it
[10:29 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): OH and Abnormality Event
[10:29 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): yes but that is predominantly furry
[10:30 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): It is, but I have taken on Abnormality and I wasn’t the only mer option at the last round
[10:30 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: merfs are a thing. you could totally get more furries underwater
[10:31 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): well crap, I had no idea Nama had closed the guild, so sad. Just read her post.
[10:31 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): that is true I suppose
[10:31 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: and dinkies
[10:31 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): yea I finally got to blog for it but it was on the last round
[10:31 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): mmhmm
[10:31 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): so I dont have anything or anyone to blog for
[10:31 AM] ???? H???-R??? (Zudrial Damballar): Dx
[10:31 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: and the kid community is really starting to pick up again

[10:56 AM] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): There’s one last VERY EXCITING announcement that I’m pleased to tell everyone about: The Sunken Atelier will be opening officially for Mer Monday on January 9th (that’s this coming Monday)!

This is an intimate fantasy speakeasy that takes anachronistic inspiration from baroque, rococo, neoclassical and impressionist art. The Atelier is underwater, but the place is magicked so any can breathe within its walls. There are references to alcohol, so we ask that Nooo X( underage avatars visit.

Website: https://sunkenatelier.carrd.co/
[10:57 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!!
