[10:02] Miranda Barrowstone: hey hey
[10:02] Miranda Barrowstone: it’s probably a research vessel
[10:02] Miranda Barrowstone: you get used to them
[10:02] ???? ???? (Neve Nebula): that bright it would need to be
[10:02] 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] Nwenwin Resident: Tala Munin, Yes, it has been awhile
[10:03] Miranda Barrowstone: tala nwen
[10:03] Nwenwin Resident: Tala Miranda
[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.

[10:09] Miranda Barrowstone: I probably know the answer to this but… did anyone bring anyone new today?

[10:12] Munin (Darm Yaffle) cranes out necks looking. Then suddenly steals the stick.
[10:12] Miranda Barrowstone takes out new stick
[10:12] Munin (Darm Yaffle) crunches
[10:12] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth) watches Munin – did we not give him his salmon today?
[10:13] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth) throws Munin a salmon
[10:13] Miranda Barrowstone: I tried to give hm a munchie stick so I’ll just use this
[10:13] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): so announce something munin since you stole the stick?
[10:13] Miranda Barrowstone: Questions and support requests
Now – what general questions can we discuss here today? Where do our aquatics need help? If you wish to share here – please im me so that I can call on you.
[10:13] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): later
[10:14] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): how do I rent an adboard?
[10:14] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): hehe (yes, this is a test of membrship)
[10:14] ???? ???? (Neve Nebula): Grace, the ad boards are an ongoing issue that we’ve discussed several times in recent weeks in your absence.
[10:14] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I’m here now!
[10:14] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): the short answer is just pay the adboard
[10:14] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): yes – thats the answer
[10:14] Miranda Barrowstone: so lets discuss them then
[10:14] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): I rent an ad board, but I do still need the promo tag~
[10:14] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): (sorry for my absence)
[10:15] ???? ???? (Neve Nebula): They no longer get the clicks they used to because they are not where people land on arrival here, also people are not being granted the group permissions after doing so to be able to post notices in group.
[10:15] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): the long answer is the unresolved problem of how to get the advertiser tag after renting
[10:15] ???? ???? (Neve Nebula): Personally, my situation is fine – I pay to support this place, but my board no longer drives traffic.
[10:15] Ohora Sessa (Cathy Jackson): Woot Grandma!
[10:15] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): Cecilily we have added “administrative team” tag to some key members – if contacted they will give the person the tag so can send notices
[10:15] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): so pay the board
[10:15] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi) paws at Grace
[10:16] Miranda Barrowstone checks
[10:16] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): do you have a list of these people, off the top of your head or so?
[10:16] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): OK, before when I asked people nobody was able to grant the tags
[10:16] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): reach out to administrative team member or shout in the group now to see if one is online
[10:16] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): group profile – use the role tab
[10:16] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): look at Admin Team
[10:16] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): I see 17 but not who
[10:17] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): scroll down
[10:17] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): can see which are online
[10:17] Miranda Barrowstone: it still looks ghosted out… lemme play with it for a bit.. who needs the tag right now?
[10:17] ???? ???? (Neve Nebula): that’s really good news that there are now people. However you can’t see who has been given the role – you can see as an owner of the group, but not the rest of us.
[10:17] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): I do~
[10:17] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): if you are an adboard membre now
[10:17] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): the “Assigned Members” is not visible to me
[10:17] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I’ll get you the tag cecily
[10:17] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): administrative team
[10:18] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): or Key Members is their tag
[10:18] ???? ???? (Neve Nebula): Does this also apply to people who have rented in the mer mall? Will they be able to get the group role they need too?
[10:18] Miranda Barrowstone: looks like I got it. check it out?
[10:18] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): okies I see it meows
[10:18] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): excellent point
[10:18] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): if they have an adboard for now
[10:18] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): They need to be able to Assign Members to Any Role
[10:18] ???? ???? (Neve Nebula): and also rights to be able to actually REZ at the mermall?
[10:18] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): will look inno
[10:18] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): None of the Admin team has that ability
[10:18] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): they can assign to the Advertiser role
[10:18] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I’m fixing it
[10:18] Cecily Tamagotchi-????ère (Cecily Muircastle): Ah okies
[10:18] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): correct Cecily – they can assign to the roles they have
[10:19] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): so can also assign mermaid or merman
[10:19] Munin (Darm Yaffle): ok fo seeing members in roles…. click the Members tab first, wait for all members to load, with 3000 it can take 5-20 seconds. Then Click rols tabe and then roles to list members in them
[10:19] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): thanks Munin
[10:19] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I’m working on you Cecily

[10:21] Peaches2U Camino: i have a shop in the mall, would like advertiser rights
[10:21] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): yus
[10:21] Peaches2U Camino: as a shop is more expensive than an adboard
[10:21] Peaches2U Camino: waaaaaay more
[10:21] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): looking into it do not abandon hope
[10:21] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): please give me a little space

[10:22] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): no reason they shouldn’t imo

[10:24] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): the discussion for now is settled
[10:24] Miranda Barrowstone: yeah do you have something to discuss peach?
[10:24] Miranda Barrowstone: or anyone else?
[10:25] Peaches2U Camino: wanted to know if the adboards could be moved to this ampitheatre
[10:25] Peaches2U Camino: or the sponsor boards
[10:25] Peaches2U Camino: so they could be seen, while attending the gathering
[10:25] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): yus, this had been brought up

[10:26] Miranda Barrowstone: oh I have a quick request
[10:26] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): • ?? • ?? • ???? (==) [10:26] ???? ???? (Neve Nebula): in here would make so much sense as we gather here. [10:26] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): please move on [10:26] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): it is the landing area [10:26] Peaches2U Camino: that was my question^^ [10:26] Miranda Barrowstone: everyone that has a spot today please write it out on nc [10:26] ???? ???? (Neve Nebula): I’m already on NC now, Miranda. [10:26] Miranda Barrowstone: we seem to have a few people today [10:26] Miranda Barrowstone: groovy [10:27] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): has a spot for? [10:27] Miranda Barrowstone: shall we swim on then? [10:27] Miranda Barrowstone: okay grace has asked for the stick [10:27] Miranda Barrowstone: I’m granting it [10:27] Miranda Barrowstone: yer on hun [10:27] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): :-.,,.-:'*Yayyyyyyy!!!!*:-.,_,.-:*'‘*
[10:28] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): The discussions are really a good thing and I’m sorry for my strong reaction
[10:28] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): you’ve kept our community alive with your involvement
[10:28] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): but two people are not enough to keep it running
[10:28] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): and I have health problems – can tell people privately if you wish – but the end result
[10:29] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): is that SWF can continue if more members become committed enough to absorb some of the roles when they can
[10:29] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): so we’ve started with they key members role – we want you to feel like this is YOUR group
[10:30] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): and if you are willing to put in some effort for a time, we can make it happen
[10:30] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I’ve asked Chicky to take over as CEO
[10:30] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): but even she can’t run SWF as we have so poorly demonstrated
[10:30] Ohora Sessa (Cathy Jackson): I’m willing
[10:30] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): Ohora is a Committed Key Member
[10:31] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I care terribly about SWF but it has become harder to come in
[10:31] Ohora Sessa (Cathy Jackson): Awesome
[10:31] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): perhaps we can add some adboards out here -but we will NOT move them in entirety when I am CEO
[10:31] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): Chicky has a RL job and is physically moving RL and I’m not sure when she’ll be in
[10:31] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): Obviously so many of you care
[10:31] ???? ???? (Neve Nebula): please can we discuss, collectively the adboard situation? perhaps next week?
[10:32] Miranda Barrowstone: I’ll be here
[10:32] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): and if you can calmly and lovingly speak to me as you would a grandma
[10:32] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): I think it’s important to allow discussions to be floated and documented
[10:32] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): even if they take time to resolve
[10:32] Peaches2U Camino: it does not have to be adboards, it could be the sponsor boards
[10:32] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): then yes, we can have some brainstorming forums
[10:32] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
[10:32] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): NOT now
[10:32] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): changes are not so easy as you all know in SWF
[10:32] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): SL
[10:33] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I have established office hours for weekdays
[10:33] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): 3pm to 7pm weekdays
[10:33] ???? ???? (Neve Nebula): are they Euro friendly?
[10:33] ???? ???? (Neve Nebula): ah, no. apparently not.
[10:33] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): and in other times – but those are work hours
[10:33] Ohora Sessa (Cathy Jackson): Oh I know it
[10:33] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I will make a special effort to get up in the middle of my night Neve to meet with you
[10:33] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): so I can offer that – but you see the issue
[10:34] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): you expect me to meet at anyones office hours?
[10:34] ???? ???? (Neve Nebula): not at all, I was just enquiring.
[10:34] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): brainstorming discussion gatherings (not individual)
[10:34] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): please write a notecard of times that work well for you and I will announce several time slots for this week
[10:35] Munin (Darm Yaffle): maybe have a brainstormign session just before or after this meeting? just a suggestion as it;s when people seem to be around
[10:35] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): we will record them and I will get them to those who have agreed to take on admin tasks (more than just team) and we’ll discuss and make changes as we can
[10:35] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): that would be one very good time
[10:35] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I’ll try to include one Munin
[10:35] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): thankies Munin
[10:35] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): dat a gud idea
[10:35] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I’m aging and am trying to make a transition here
[10:35] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I do want THIS meeting to not become a management discussion
[10:35] ???? ???? (Neve Nebula): I honestly thought that that’s what this meeting was for – to help each other. I think a short group session before or after could work well! 🙂
[10:36] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): it will be chaos
[10:36] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): no
[10:36] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): uhhh
[10:36] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): it is helpful sharing and promotion
[10:36] ???? ???? (Neve Nebula): no it’s not to help each other? o.O
[10:36] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): but that’s what the meeting is for
[10:36] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): managing SWF is different
[10:36] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): tell me more things I can do for you feels like attack at this point
[10:36] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): honestly
[10:36] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): Nuuuuuuu!
[10:36] ???? ???? (Neve Nebula): not at all!
[10:36] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): we don’t mean that, Grandma
[10:36] Peaches2U Camino: it should not
[10:37] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): just saying
[10:37] ??????s (Aurora Jarvinen): managers has personel.
[10:37] Miranda Barrowstone: what she is say neve is the issue is too big to fit in a normal meeting
[10:37] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): I understand it can feel overwhelming
[10:37] ??????s (Aurora Jarvinen): Bah-ah-ah-ah-ah!
[10:37] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): our volunteers are volunteers and nobody want to overcommit
[10:37] Ohora Sessa (Cathy Jackson): It’s okay Grandma, we understand
[10:37] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): THAT will be in the brainstorming gatherings – send me times that work for you
[10:37] F??? ?? (Sapphira Franizzi): but let’s just have some dsicussion and document it, while still keeping a cap on the time we allocate for it
[10:37] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I”m doing my best to pull things back together
[10:37] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): yes Fina also a good idea
[10:37] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): can do
[10:38] Grandma (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth) gives the stick back to Mirand and goes to hide in the sand
[10:38] Chat Range: Sapphira Franizzi [8m]
[10:38] Miranda Barrowstone: don’t hide in the sand thats how you get bit
[10:38] Miranda Barrowstone: bobbit worms are a thing
[10:39] Miranda Barrowstone: Quick reminders/announcements

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.
[10:39] Miranda Barrowstone: Perks include helping the group and being allowed to post ads in the group chat twice a day. Add in the fact that anyone can ask for the stick and that is great exposure.
[10:40] 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.

[10:44] Rhodan Fishbottoms (Rhodan Kuhn): aHi folks, my friend Diggy (korben.dallas) has started a store that makes eclectic and wonderful nails for men. I offered him a storefront down in Kelpwick and in return he designed two lovely sets of nails for mermen in particular. (Though all his nails could look great on the right fish)
Each nail can be painted individually so you can mix and match from various sets to suit your personal style.
Here’s a slurl; IM me for a LM: The Ethereal Element (104,49,59)
Kelpwick itself has been getting little updates over the last few months as well, so it is always worth it to swim by and have a peek around. There’s a sea turtle now!

  • 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
