058 SWF Gathering 8 July 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!
[10:00 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.
[10:01 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.

[10:17 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): MARION is a mentor!
[10:17 AM] Sandie (Sandie Rau): I had to send a message to Aii asking how to disable the tail AO. I found there was very little information with it when I bought it.
[10:17 AM] Marion Sopwith (Marion698 Resident): yeah!
[10:17 AM] Alice Elaena (Alice Nebula): i did, and itwas a complete mess ith teh Tala ao, I had to literally take the riptide Ao script and replacing them with Nemissa’s one. Then it worked

[10:20 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): depends on the ao and the animations in furniture

[10:34 AM] aqua rachal (Stormy Szondi): you are not alone that
[10:34 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): I’m also reaching out to dj’s that I know to see if we can get more dances at our ballroom. Dj’s work for tips only and get access to our music stream. Only condition is they choose time(s) not already having events in the seafolk calendar. SWF is about promoting all undersea SL so we try not to have competing events at our location as we can. So if you have underwater dj that might want to build up some traffic – our ballroom can be made available.
[10:34 AM] aqua rachal (Stormy Szondi): pet the coral
[10:35 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): Your help would be most appreciated
[10:35 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): send me your dj friends!

[10:35 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): Also we are looking for non-competing seaworthy classes to be held at this, our chat pavilion. No charge!

Contact anyone in the administrative team for help: Miranda Brownstone, Echo (echorayne.ayashi), Chicky Darkheart (justachicky.goldshark), and myself Grace (matriarch.mermaid) are members of our Administrative team.
10:35 AM: Alice Elaena (alice.nebula): See you and have a nice day/evening!
[10:36 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): okay Alice
[10:36 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: lusa em Alice
[10:36 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): I still have more to share if you have time/interest
[10:36 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: yeah go for it
[10:36 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): Remember to help us get seafolk events of all sorts (must be mer eligible please) into our seafolk calendar. You can see it online at our web site www.swsl.com (in our address on your viewer – eh) or in our headquarters building it is also viewable. To be listed need event name, time, recurring or not, description,AND a person to contact for more information. Aany restrictions to the location should be included in the description (adult, men only, women only for example) Must have a location in SLURL form so a notecard is appropriate.
[10:38 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): My jellyfish attire is for sale in the Fanci’s Deep Mer Mall on site. Its right near our ballroom (and there is a sim map posted there and there are also teleport pads scattered around our lands. The tentacles I found at the Aii store (who doesn’t respond to my begging for them to put a stall into our mall) – this is also where you can find the ever-popular riptide tail.
[10:38 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): Anyone recognize the following?

  • 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!!
