Community Meeting: April 3, 2021

Below is a short summary of the latest Community Meeting, followed by its chat logs – which have been gently edited for formatting, to put questions and answers in bold for easy skimming, and to omit greetings and farewells and other such asides.  Meetings are hosted by Estate owner NeoBokrug Elytis at 2:00 pm on the first Saturday of every month at The Potato Farm in The Wastelands, and the discussion is typically divided into three main topics: Estate, Game, and Roleplay & Events.  Everyone is welcome to attend!


ESTATE:
Secret Project REVEALED: The Wastelands Community Gateway!

➳ The Community Gateway program allows communities on Second Life to create their own new-user orientation experiences with their own unique style.
➳ Our region, Northgate, already exists about four regions north of The Wastelands, and building is underway – but it’s currently only open to Wastelands Public Works (WLPW) members.
➳ Yes, that Northgate.
➳ We will also have our own Second Life registration page: it’s 80% complete already, it puts the post-apocalyptic Library avatars at the top of the list, and those who sign up through it will go directly to our Orientation Island.
➳ The Community Gateway will have three main levels, representing three main goals and priorities:

Stage 1: Basic and Advanced User Orientation
Basic will teach brand-new users the fundamentals of movement, interaction, and communication – ideally iconographic and language-agnostic where possible, but with our own post-apocalyptic flair.
Advanced will get into the nuances of the Linden Viewer: enabling media, using voice chat, managing inventory, using AOs, etc.
Users will receive post-apocalyptic rewards made by the WLPW as they progress.
To help prevent griefing, this area will only be accessible to new users and to select WLPW members.

Stage 2: New and Continuing User Education
Socialization and classroom areas – also filthy and post-apocalyptic – where people can teach others about content creation, the different types of bodies and how to shop for them, basic scripting, or any other SL-related field of expertise.
This area will be open to the general public.

Stage 3: Wastelands Tutorial and Northgate
When Stages 1 and 2 are complete, the next layer will hold an expanded and more-detailed Wastelands Game and Roleplay tutorial area.
When that is complete, the final layer will become the ruined city of Northgate, a place of rare loot, ravenous ghasts, and unspeakable dangers for players to explore – if they dare.
This region will be accessible via Experience teleports from The Wastelands itself.

➳ To help with creating the Community Gateway and those post-apocalyptic rewards, Neo has refreshed The Wastelands Public Works Department!
➳ If you have any skills that might be useful for this endeavor – mesh creation, prim building, texturing, teaching, or anything else you can think of – send Neo a notecard describing your skills and experience, perhaps sharing examples of your work; he’ll be in touch to discuss things with you!
➳ In unrelated news, Neo has made a parcel media script that will allow landowners to host music by other landowners, even if they can’t be inworld to change the media stream: just drop the script in an object.  For DJs, just click that object and put in your music URL.

GAME:
➳ Nests with eggs have been spawning for a few days, and can be exchanged for a random painted Revival Egg at Scythejaw.  This event ends on the 5th.
➳ Salvage crates and Quest crates now spawn on ALL land owned by Neo.  This includes parcels that are set ‘For Sale’.
➳ Crates now avoid spawning in places that are too steep, like cliffs.
➳ Buzzards no longer poof in the middle of active combat.
➳ Dok Aeg’s Cinderblock Stew now accepts newer candies, and the progress menu now has clearer icons to indicate if the stew criteria are met.
➳ You can also now use a Patreon Flayer or Scavenger’s Axe to harvest a Scarlet Spikeflower or Green Prickly Ball Cactus.
➳ Such cacti can now be preserved by using Chemical A, or Yellow Mold, or Bloodmoss
➳ Neo is creating an autorezzer tool that you can stock with Wastelands items, and that will quickly rez stock out at a Trader or at a Masheen or at Dok Aeg so you no longer have to drag and drop so many items.  Also featuring an obfuscation mode so that your crafting combinations can’t be spied on!
➳ This tool will be sold at full price to non-residents, at a 50% discount to residents, and free to Patreon members (and landowners who pay at least the cost of a Patreon membership in tier each month.)
➳ The “universal salvage script” is still in the works.
➳ It’s possible that a script-efficient AO may be developed – perhaps as a Community Gateway resource, but it might be beneficial for game players as well.
➳ Saul the Food Trader is still dead.

ROLEPLAY & EVENTS:
➳ The Red Revival, a morbidly psychedelic Ghoul-for-a-day festival, returns on Saturday, April 17! If you’d like to take the opportunity to have your character go Ghoul permanently, get in touch with Apo!
➳ Get out your weird inworld instruments: a discordant Red Parade will literally drum up interest in the Revival on Friday the 16th at 6pm – and will go lurching around the Wastelands.
➳ “Primetime” Wasted Karaoke may soon happen on occasional Friday nights at 6 or 7pm. Stay tuned!
➳ Early warning: PROMAGEDDON is nigh on Saturday, May 29!
➳ Apo is still conducting in-character interviews to document the original roleplayed belief systems of The Wastelands in a new series of Press articles.  If you’ve created an original spiritual practice for your character, and you want to spread the word, get in touch!
➳ Reminder: The roleplay character template has been added to the Wiki – add yours today!

NeoBokrug Elytis: IT’S… TIME.
Sandling Honey: \ o /
NeoBokrug Elytis: Let me get this out of the way before I start, and forget…
Aposiopesis Fullstop: wooo!
Sandling Honey: Whooohooo
Sandling Honey: np: Godspeed You! Black Emperor – Fire at Static Valley
NeoBokrug Elytis: Okay! This months community meeting is a little special, just cause we’re going to have an extra half hour to chew the fat on the Community Gateway. As usual, we’ll talk about the topics for a bit, with time for questions in between the topics.
Candide LeMay: oh hai doktor pilates… i saw you tunble to your death from the bridge in the rot today
DoktorPileus: That’ll happen.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Starting with the Community Gateway; It’s a program offered by Linden Lab for communities of Second Life to help onboard folks into SL, and learn about SL in your own unique way. LL had it way back in 2008, but at some point shuttered it, but then brought it back in 2017.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I didn’t learn about it being back until late 2019, which is when I applied for our own CG — but then the land store broke, and covid happened, etc.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Boooo
NeoBokrug Elytis: So while it may have taken a long while to get here, we finally got it. The region is called Northgate, it’s about 4 regions North of us and will NOT be directly connected to the estate for plenty of technical reasons. However, when it does open up I will use experience teleports to shuffle people in and out of there.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): that shall be named “age of the secret project”
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): cool 🙂
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
Candide LeMay: neo it would be helpful if we could see whether you’re typing something or not
Rax Stooge: Mmmm digestion
Memory Harker: XD
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): He is… 😮
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): he will be typeing till about 3pm
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa) nods
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Pretty safe to assume he is, until he opens the floor for questions, like he’d said.
xrrawva: opens the floor for lava
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): oh gawd D:
Aposiopesis Fullstop: (Or possibly for lava.)
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hah!
Memory Harker: o.O
xrrawva: haa
NeoBokrug Elytis: We have a lot of BIG goals for the Community Gateway, and they all have distinct priorities. Our first goal is to get basic new user orientation up and running. I have enough experience with SLs Registration API to make things work. Since the code was so old I just makde my own (crappy) PHP libraries to handle the different formats of output they have. I have a basic “Signup for Second Life” registration page 80% done. I can register accounts and deposit them somewhere on the estate.
Sandling Honey: np: Mono – Dream Odyssey
Memory Harker: ^_^
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): oooh
NeoBokrug Elytis: So most of the web work is done-ish, has been since the middle of last year. I got RegAPI access early because I had a few interested potential contracts that wanted that; but they didn’t bite… so..
Memory Harker: All falling into place!
Memory Harker: XD
Vikki Placebo: 🙂
NeoBokrug Elytis: The first BIG goal is to get basic user orientation down, and we’re going to try to do that in a language-agnostic sort of way. Where people will see with examples and iconography instead of a native language. I think that’s a HARD but very-doable project.
Memory Harker: And you never breathed a word of this at all, NeoBokrug.
Memory Harker: EXCEPT FOR TEASING US EVERY GODDAMN WEEK.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hee!
Memory Harker grins at the Tin Man.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I’ve helped make a couple orientation island and similar places in the past for several contracts.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha, yeaaah.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I didn’t want to dash hopes before they hatched.
Memory Harker: ^_^
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): So, it’s a WL region but not connected. Can we salvage there?
NeoBokrug Elytis: If it didn’t work out, we’d still work with out pitiful setup.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Just in time for Easter then :>
NeoBokrug Elytis: I will get to that Irk.,
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): ok
NeoBokrug Elytis: Function, before form.
Vikki Placebo: I imagine there’s some (academic?) literature on the subject?
NeoBokrug Elytis: We’re going to make an Orientation Area for new users. Only select avatars from the Wastelands Public Works will be allowed to be in the same area as them. This area WILL NOT have an inward bound connection for residents to visit or hassle new signups with.
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): So no drugging and beating them, eh?
Memory Harker: Direct ALL your rocks to ME, Ccindy, pls.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Once a user makes it through the OI then, they can interact with other folks in a public area — but the orientation area will only be for new people and select folks of the Wastelands Public Works.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: We’ll just have to wait for them to come out the exit. THEN roll ’em!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha yeah
Memory Harker: XD
Storm Thunders: and by then they’ll at least be able to say hello before you roll them
NeoBokrug Elytis: So basic and advanced user orientation are top priority sections we’ll work on.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Basic will be language-agnostic.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): that we shanghai them to the jy for cleanup duty
NeoBokrug Elytis: Advanced will cover things like using the viewer, managing inventory, etc. So there might have to be SOME language, and we’ll figure that out when we get there.
Memory Harker: Heeere!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Having given some classes to college students in October on how to use SL, I can say there’s much room for improvment beyond what the basic SL orientation offers.
xrrawva: will we teach the linden viewer or firestorm?
NeoBokrug Elytis: So orientation (basic and advanced) is Stage 1 of Northgate.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Linden Viewer
xrrawva: ah
Storm Thunders: that’s the one most true newbies (not alts) come in on.
Memory Harker testifies.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Stage 2 is building a socializing and classroom type area. Basically I would like to have folks teach others what they know about content creation in SL, and other myriads of things like clothes shopping for certain bodies.
xrrawva: and if a friend talks you into sl+firestorm they’ll prolly sign up on the default website
NeoBokrug Elytis: THAT was hard to explain to my classes. The whole different bodies things.
Memory Harker: Legacy 4EVER
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): ooof
Sandling Honey: np: World’s End Girlfriend – Bless Yourself Bleed
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): alts will be selected and they must fight or sexball to the death. only the strong can exit.
Memory Harker: “or sexball” LOL
Vikki Placebo: lol, Cc
NeoBokrug Elytis: Once stage 1 and 2 are done to completion and my satisfaction, then we’ll move on to the “fun” stuff, like building out a nice chunk of what I imagine to be Northgate.
NeoBokrug Elytis: There will be loot and danger in Northgate.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Weee!
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): brb
NeoBokrug Elytis: But that project won’t happen for a while. Stage 1 and 2 are expected to take months to complete.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I have recently rebooted the Wastelands Public Works group to help with the cause.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): thats where the alts come into play ghast hookers and botan mobsters
NeoBokrug Elytis: If you’re not in the know the WLPW was a group dedicated to making things by wastelanders for Wastelanders.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
Memory Harker: XD
NeoBokrug Elytis: It’s a lot of what the old libraries of things near Alden are. It’s been probably a decade since the group was active.
Anne Cloud: There are mesh assets, so a bit less i think?
NeoBokrug Elytis: I’ve expanded it’s roles into not only creator roles, but helper and teacher roles.
Anne Cloud: 2013.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I think we’ve had mesh for a decade?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha okay 8 years.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): hehe.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): mid 2011 is when the wlpw project started say my notecards
NeoBokrug Elytis: The current goals of the WLPW are to just make post apocalyptic content and teach people about SL and The Wastelands; in our own filthy way.
Anne Cloud: CC: mm yeah, i am looking an a later asset
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): doit and filt
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): sign me up ^^
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): it was kind of active for 2012 and les in 2013
Vikki Placebo: Yeah, mesh being introduced did maybe cause a hiccup for WLPW before
NeoBokrug Elytis: Now the WLPW group is officially rebooted, and I’ve poked the old members, and land owners for interest in joining it, I will be opening it to further applications. If you have ANY skills that you think are helpful with content creation or teaching folks or being helpful, drop a notecard on me and we’ll sit down and talk about it some time.
NeoBokrug Elytis: And for what it’s worth I think Prim Building is still a very valid skill, especially since you can get amazing results with prim-to-mesh tools if you use them right.
Vikki Placebo: Prims can be quite nice with materials
NeoBokrug Elytis: I know some folks in the crowd expressed interest over the past weeks, but haven’t contacted me. So if you did, please make sure you do. We really need the help.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): ooh, I have one to give. Just need to tweek it a tad.
Vikki Placebo: There’s still lots to do with prims.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: They can! Like that speaker you made!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any questions about the Community Gateway or WLPW?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Would never believe it was just a flat box at first glance. 😀
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Prims are your friends
NeoBokrug Elytis: Also Northgate is closed to the general public, unless you’re WLPW. 😛
Candide LeMay: do people have to find the portal to sign up through by themselves or will that be part of some choice at LL’s sign up pages?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Uncertain Candide.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I’ll do my best to promote it.
NeoBokrug Elytis: And I may set aside some funds for a custom last name, as community portals can do.
Anne Cloud: The current main signup process just tosses people at different gateways at random. I don’t know if London has their own RegAPI for example.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): oooh
Aposiopesis Fullstop: http://join.the-wastelands.orelse
Candide LeMay: do you have to pay full tier for the sim or is there some sort of discount for orientation islands?
NeoBokrug Elytis: London does have their own RegAPI
Memory Harker: But so there MIGHT be a dedicated “This way to Post-Apocalyptic Immersion Training in the Wastelands” on the main SL pages … ?
Vikki Placebo: I assume the islands are limited to a single sim?
Sandling Honey: Be quick, all the furries are currently jumping on the oWo’s and UwU’s
xrrawva: owu
NeoBokrug Elytis: I cannot speak of the costs for a community gateway. All I can say is that you need to apply to be a community gateway: wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Community_Gateway
Sandling Honey: Thanks memory! 😀
Memory Harker: Cheers, Sandling!
Anne Cloud: It also seems to be a rather stringent process? I know you’ve been in talks over this for a while.
NeoBokrug Elytis: From my impression, you need to probably have proven yourself or have a distinct need or purpose for it.
Sandling Honey: np: Frog Pocket – Vaedre
Anne Cloud: So it can be very much a great personal investment, at the least.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Yeah, it took a year, and two applications.
Vikki Placebo: Ugh
NeoBokrug Elytis: The second applicatiojn was only because a year had passed.
Storm Thunders: and the land store was more or less frozen for months while they threw us at the cloud.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Needless to say, I think our community earned it. 🙂
Memory Harker: “The more things remain, the more they change the sane.”
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hah!
Storm Thunders: wait, there’s sane people here?!!
NeoBokrug Elytis: To stay on the grid for 14 years, is a big accomplishment.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): but we got fresh grass seeds from the mainland .. so if all works out fine , we will have a green ground .. that or the birds will feast
Vikki Placebo: GMO seeds.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Imagine, peoples’ first impressions of SL being the things Wastelanders make. 😀
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any other questions about the community gateway or WLPW?
Memory Harker: Ghastly Mainlaind-Origin seeds.
Vikki Placebo: Hehehe
Storm Thunders sends the goats to fix that grass problem.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): It’ll be a great sight for them
Memory Harker: Heeeee!
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): What do you want us to say in the notecard?
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): “Send in the goats!”
Candide LeMay: so what will be the process after they are done with the orientation island? they will be TPed to here?
Memory Harker: HERDS of goats.
Sandling Honey: My first impression of SL was a wrong turn towards the Morris sandbox and ending up in a BDSM Horror exhebition
Vikki Placebo: Mmmm, goat
Sandling Honey: so yeah
Candide LeMay: also how will they go back for classes?
Sandling Honey: It’s an improvement
Alek Xandar (memesis23): get an Elsyium flying medical shuttle crash model. thatll learn um
Alek Xandar (memesis23): elysium crashed shuttle
NeoBokrug Elytis: Oh, I did want to mention that while the initial build of the gateway will be using a lot of existing content that’s on the marketplace; my review process for what I include from non-wasters is going to be very strict. I can’t have content that basically WHen people complete the OI, they will be given the option to visit various places, with an emphasis on our location.
NeoBokrug Elytis: crashes folks upon arrival.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): well you turned out mostly ok after a couple of years of self development. you burried the trauma sufficently sandling
NeoBokrug Elytis: Whoops.
Alek Xandar (memesis23): YEEEAAAAHH!!!
Sandling Honey cries forever
NeoBokrug Elytis: Let’s fix this:
NeoBokrug Elytis: Oh, I did want to mention that while the initial build of the gateway will be using a lot of existing content that’s on the marketplace; my review process for what I include from non-wasters is going to be very strict. I can’t have content that basically crashes people upon arrival.
NeoBokrug Elytis: When people complete the OI, they will be given the option to visit various places, with an emphasis on our location.
Anne Cloud: efficiency and visual appeal need to be somewhat balanced, for sure.
Sandling Honey: It does say something about me I guess that I *actually stayed* huh
xrrawva: combining sdtuff from the mp is gonna fill RAMs
NeoBokrug Elytis: As people complete the OI, they will earn rewards. Ideally things made by folks here, but I may reach out to people whom I’ve done favors for in the past. 🙂
Anne Cloud: There were guidelines back when the WLPW was first put together. I think we can go back and review them to see how much they should change, but the baselines haven’t moved very much.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Drifter: Just talk me up about your best skills, and how you see yourself using them
NeoBokrug Elytis: Getting back tot he OI will have certain teleporters setup.
Anne Cloud: When you are getting new users who are running SL from a potato, you have to be careful
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahahaha, indeeeed.
Candide LeMay: you said only WPLP people will be able to go there… so how will the noobs will go back there for classes?
Storm Thunders: and when they’re going thru Basic, you don’t want them distracted by the scenery.
NeoBokrug Elytis: And with the WLPW, we want to teach you how to be a better content creator or helper/teacher.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): different areas
Anne Cloud: It’s closed to WLPW for now – while it’s being developed.
NeoBokrug Elytis: So it’s not completely a one way street.
Alek Xandar (memesis23): need a potatoe to run a potatoe
NeoBokrug Elytis: So let me clarify: The region is closed NOW. It will be public at a point.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: The *starting* area is for new people and WLPW only. That “Stage 1” area. The “Stage 2” classroom areas would be more open.
Alek Xandar (memesis23): can I ask a dumbasss question. who cares about noobyworld gateway stuff why bother? serious quyery
NeoBokrug Elytis: And what Apo said.
Candide LeMay: i see
NeoBokrug Elytis: I care. That’s all that matters.
Alek Xandar (memesis23): but why
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): Noobs might care
Alek Xandar (memesis23): fresh meat?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Because people need to learn how to use SL.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: May as well learn through us.
Vikki Placebo: It would be good for getting new users, ‘conversion’
NeoBokrug Elytis: Because I think SL is amazing, and I think we can do a better job that a ton of OIs out there.
Alek Xandar (memesis23): yu hope the wasteland will encourage new sl players
Vikki Placebo: Getting people hooked while they’re young
Alek Xandar (memesis23): seems a bit advanced a place to me
Alek Xandar (memesis23): says the PLacebvo girl, cute
Aposiopesis Fullstop: That’s… why we’re making an Orientation Island.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: That will teach the basics.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Like, I did a tour of what’s available and I think there’s a lot of room for improvement.
Alek Xandar (memesis23): Placebo says Hookem high
Anne Cloud: Community Gateways tend to be a means of helping to retain and attract.
Vikki Placebo: Yes, Placebo Girl says all kindsa fake BS.
Storm Thunders: And as more people flow through, we’ll grow a bit cause a few of them will settle in here.
Alek Xandar (memesis23): traffic magnet?
Alek Xandar (memesis23): to Gaeway
Alek Xandar (memesis23): atrract more traffic?
Memory Harker: NeoBokrug Elytis: Because I think SL is amazing, and I think we can do a better job that a ton of OIs out there.
Memory Harker: HEAR, HEAR!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Besides, no community gateway offers our brand of artisinal trash.
Alek Xandar (memesis23): hehehehehe OK.
Sandling Honey: Sorry, my stream is not crashing, just the song obviously.
Alek Xandar (memesis23): i agree there
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any other questions about WLPW or the Community Gateway?
Alek Xandar (memesis23): question answered thanks
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): I agree, there is a big gap in how people first learn the ropes in SL. A Wasteland themed one will do wonders
Memory Harker: Songcrash here, Snowcrash, there …
Vikki Placebo: 🙂
Sandling Honey: np: Sigur Ros – Stormur
Alek Xandar (memesis23): great sim to crash things in fer shure
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Community Gateways are for orientation for brand-new users, education and orientation for people who’ve figured out the basics and who need to learn more about actually getting by – not just “How do I move? How do I build? How do I rez?” but “How do I build well? How do I know the right gear for this body? How do I really engage with the world now that I can do the fundamentals?”
Alek Xandar (memesis23): um ok
xrrawva: and the website is for how do i be
Alek Xandar (memesis23): fundamental chaos…ya
Vikki Placebo: And also it could help to direct people to a non-sucky section of SL?
NeoBokrug Elytis: And there will always be evolving classes, since SL is always changing.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha yeah Vikki. 🙂
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): nods
Alek Xandar (memesis23): yes
Vikki Placebo: It’s really not that complicated.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha, yeah. Versus some flat green-grass field, or abandoned Mainland.
Alek Xandar (memesis23): id heard the number of new ussers fell in 2020
Candide LeMay: the conversion rate was always abysmal
Memory Harker in all seriousness, would happily take a *remedial* class at some point.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: That may be why LL wants to support more community gateways, huh.
Beasil (beasil.roundfield): Weird, you’d think the pandemic would have caused a boost
Alek Xandar (memesis23): making Gateways a moot point in a moot point. but ok
NeoBokrug Elytis: I will be contacting a few well established long lived amazing places in SL to see if they want to be a “portal location” at the end of our CG.
Candide LeMay: lots of people sign up, almost none stay
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Spent a lot of my early days lost in the Mainland
Alek Xandar (memesis23): thats normal
Alek Xandar (memesis23): some of us spent years lost in sskyboxes.
Storm Thunders: it caused an overall boost from the numbers I saw in places, but a lot of that boost was peoplel returning to SL while they were stuck at home.
Alek Xandar (memesis23): dont feel bad
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Heh true
Memory Harker: Storm: IT ME
Alek Xandar (memesis23): we be it
NeoBokrug Elytis: Okay. Moving on to estate and land, but I will leave the floor open for CG and WLPW questions while I cover that.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): XD
NeoBokrug Elytis: Not much in the news of estate stuff to be honest. Occupancy has stayed same-ish, even though this is typically the last bit of the early year slump.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I made a new script for landowners to allow those who are in the Landowners group to host music there.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Oooo!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Apparently a LOT of people wanted that, more than I expected — so yay?
Vikki Placebo: Yay!
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Nice
Memory Harker: 😀
NeoBokrug Elytis: That’s available up in the tier area on the shelves.
xrrawva: yay
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yeah! That’s exciting. 😀
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): 😀
NeoBokrug Elytis: Sandling is using it right now here at this stage.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Was gonna ask about that weirdly enough
Sandling Honey: /o
NeoBokrug Elytis: I have one set up here, at the Junkard stage and at the new Stygian stage.
xrrawva: (bbl)
Sandling Honey: np: Cyann & Ben- Recurring
NeoBokrug Elytis: It’s easy to set up, just drop the script in an object. In the docs I suggest purchasing a boom box from Vikki, because it’s nice. 🙂
Aposiopesis Fullstop: 😀
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): ^-^
NeoBokrug Elytis: You gotta gut it tho — but it meets the requirements.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Excellent!
NeoBokrug Elytis: I am sure I did more land and estate stuff, but I’ve forgotten.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): does it influence only one plots media or can it do multible at once?
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): XD
Memory Harker: “BRB, have to gut a boombox.” I would feel so badass, saying that.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): A lot on your wires
Vikki Placebo: If you would like the script for it, feel free to ask!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Only one plot at a time. So you need to set up one for every plot.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Aww
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): k
Candide LeMay: tricky on your new land cc
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Could I please, Vikki
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha yeah. :C
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): hehe
Candide LeMay: but you could have have different people listen to different streams to confuse them
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): ohh its only 4 plots when you think about moving haha
NeoBokrug Elytis: For the most part it just makes things easy for folks to borrow land to stream on.
Memory Harker: Schizophrenia much, Candide? o.O
NeoBokrug Elytis: I would also suggest that you set auto-return to 2+ hours though; but don’t leave it off.
Candide LeMay: well do they boxes all listen on the same channel? if so you could touch all 4 and set the stream once?
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): It’s a great idea. Hoping to maybe DJ some time in the near future so it’ll work a treat
NeoBokrug Elytis: That way they could rez a tip jar or something.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oh, that’d be neat, Sheala! 😀
Memory Harker: Yay, Sheala!
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): ^-^ Thanks! Hoping to anyways XD
Sandling Honey: Candide: I only need one stream for that really 🙂
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
NeoBokrug Elytis: So if you see an object with the green music notes on someones land AND you have “The Wastelands” group active, you can stream there.
Candide LeMay: not the group the land is set to?
NeoBokrug Elytis: THe Object DOES NOT need to be set to a group either, because I am using some voodoo.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Woot!
Vikki Placebo: Ooooh
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): neato!
Memory Harker: o.O
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): …and so wasteland pirate radio was born….
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Arrrr….
Vikki Placebo: 🙂
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Voodoo Radio
Alek Xandar (memesis23): cool
Sandling Honey: np: Hrsta – Beau Village
NeoBokrug Elytis: Basically residents and ex-residents squatting parties on others land.
Memory Harker is suddenly glad Ccindy will be throwing only *rocks* … and not, like, goats or boomboxes or plague cows.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any further questions about WLPW, the community gateway, or estate stuff?
Candide LeMay: or rolls
Memory Harker looks into aluminium siding options.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Cause I can’t remember the last month well — haha.
Alek Xandar (memesis23): more stupid questions. smart questions go first
Verity Goodnight: Did you get a chance to investigate the dark layuer in fort stygian?
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Ye need some wire and cog tinkering, Neo
Verity Goodnight: *layer
NeoBokrug Elytis: I did not, but I will tonight.
Verity Goodnight: thx
NeoBokrug Elytis: I am putting it on the Whiteboard
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): And that weirdly sounded much more sexual than it should
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): WL: Whiteboard? 🙂
NeoBokrug Elytis: Hit me with your stupid questions before I move on to game stuff
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha no, a PHYSICAL whiteboard I have.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): its beige
NeoBokrug Elytis: It’s to help me remeber shit.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): ≧ω≦~♪
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): Stupid questions, eh?
Alek Xandar (memesis23): well Im new
Dan Buffet (danbuffet): party!
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): is that a question?
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Still a WL: Whiteboard 😛
Alek Xandar (memesis23): ha
Sheala (sheala.olivieri) nods, “Good measures”
Dan Buffet (danbuffet): what is the party for easter?
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): wl: beigeboard
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): Community Meeting
Alek Xandar (memesis23): imagines Easter in the wasteland
NeoBokrug Elytis: Community Meeting.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Community Meeting, Dan 🙂
Dan Buffet (danbuffet): ok
Alek Xandar (memesis23): see ya at McZargalds
Candide LeMay: dan it’s the community meeting but someone stole all our furniture
Aposiopesis Fullstop: If it’s a general question, it might be something that could be answered by the Wiki: http://wiki.the-wastelands.org
Dan Buffet (danbuffet): ha ha ok
Alek Xandar (memesis23): thanks, checks wiki
NeoBokrug Elytis: Moving on to game stuff!
Candide LeMay: but not all our furryture
NeoBokrug Elytis takes a deep breath.
Memory Harker: In fact the meeting is about WHERE DID OUR FURNITURE GO?, Dan.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Heheheh XD
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): Stumbo
Aposiopesis Fullstop: HAH!
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Yeah, but really… Where did it go?
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): Stumbo’s castle
Memory Harker giggles.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): whats on my back dude?
Storm Thunders: Did he ever return that barstool?
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): He did not.
Dan Buffet (danbuffet): yw sheala
NeoBokrug Elytis: Most crates will now spawn on land that is for sale by me as well as the old locations. This give people more reasons to run around and investigate things.
Sandling Honey: np: iLiKETRAiNS- When We Were Kings
NeoBokrug Elytis: Buzzards no longer poof furing fights.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Nests with eggs have been spawning the past few days.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Not yet! Apo’s probably not sure she even WANTS it back at this point. Would probably have to be deep-cleaned. With fire.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Damn, buzzard poofins
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): if you want crates to spawn on the roads .. buy all the plots
NeoBokrug Elytis: Scythejaw will trade eggs tomorrow like he did last year.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): CooL!
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): only tomorrow?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Eggs and Scythejaw trades end on Monday when I can clean it up.
Candide LeMay: what was the process there? does it cost exp?
Memory Harker looks around for that egg-obsessed Beedit.
Memory Harker: >.>
Memory Harker: <.<
NeoBokrug Elytis: Yes, like last year.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Eggs… clean up :3
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Are there new eggs?
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): fresh you mean? no
NeoBokrug Elytis: I am still working on a “universal item” script to help improve script performance, hopefully.
The Digger (sandusky.kayvon) paints eggs faster.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oooooo…
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): hahah
Vikki Placebo: 🙂
NeoBokrug Elytis: LL has made recent updates to region crossings, so you might not float over a cliff and die from falling damage.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Speak of the Beedit!
Memory Harker: There she is!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Look out!
Memory Harker: 😀
Storm Thunders: hide your eggs!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Script performance is slightly affecting some game things.
Memory Harker: HAHAHA
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): hail the king of fire
NeoBokrug Elytis: But, it’s just slowing them down — not breaking them yet.
Candide LeMay: neo i still get moonlanding suspension in sand seas when the grid is slow (as it often is), you might relax the timing on that somewhat
NeoBokrug Elytis: What else did I do regarding game stuff?
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): no more dropping unter prims when sim crossing?
NeoBokrug Elytis: You need to send me the exact coordinates when that happens. No one else is complaining.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Oh yeah, crates try not to spawn on cliffs or cliff edges.
Vikki Placebo: Sorta random question/request, speaking of which (game/scripts) — any possibility we could get a very simple AO included with the game HUD? That might help everyone…
Candide LeMay: it’s the lag, not the location. sometimes a tp takes 3-4 seconds to complete and i hover in air
Vikki Placebo: I know that’s not a small project
NeoBokrug Elytis: The HUD is no-mod, so that’s not going to work. But I can make a scripted AO. I have quite a few in my library of things I’ve done.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Inter region teleports should take 0 seconds.
Candide LeMay: they do not
NeoBokrug Elytis: I have not experienced that.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: That could be nice. My AO is ancient, and is probably not the most efficient of things…
Sandling Honey: np: Kwoon – Schizophrenic
Storm Thunders: there’s some basic ones in the newer Library avatars if you just want something free.
Candide LeMay: you don’t have 250ms latency to the sim
Vikki Placebo: Yeah that kinda what i mean — just like a few stands and runs and whatever else might be needed
NeoBokrug Elytis: I made an AO with something like 180 states, it’s dumb.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
NeoBokrug Elytis: But it’s also only 1 script, an pretty log lag.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I suppose I could finish it a bit.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Would be interesting
NeoBokrug Elytis: Well. I can’t fix lag.
Vikki Placebo: But i think the HUD did add animations for the swimming and stuff
NeoBokrug Elytis: Just one, but everyone would have the same AO
Anne Cloud: Maybe something to table for offerings at the community gateway?
NeoBokrug Elytis: It would not be customizable.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Yeah, good Idea Anne
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oh, yeah. I was going to ask if swimming might get polished up a bit? Not being able to control how quickly you swim up makes things… more difficult than they kinda should be.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): yes more swim control
NeoBokrug Elytis: Maybe some day, but not soon.
Vikki Placebo: I know it might make things boring, but that would help in terms of lag; fewer scripts and far fewer animations to load
NeoBokrug Elytis: I would have to do a deep dive into that code.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Just gota hold your breath till then 😮
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): hahah
Aposiopesis Fullstop: HEY! *rimshot*
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): btw. i love that the nexts give 2 eggs if they lay around longer
Vikki Placebo: And maybe one less thing for noobs to buy
NeoBokrug Elytis: Yeah. When people complete elements of the Community Gateway, they get rewards.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Basically game-ifying it for nice things. An incentive to hang on.
Anne Cloud: Learning how to use an AO is something most people need to learn to do anyway
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): nests even
Anne Cloud: if they want to have anything other than a duckwalk
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): :V
NeoBokrug Elytis: So SL library avatars have AOs built in.
Storm Thunders: The newer ones do
NeoBokrug Elytis: Oh, I didn’t mention it, but I put the more “Wasteland-y” avatars at the top of the list when choosing an avatar to register with
Storm Thunders: they’re basic, but you won’t duck walk at least.
Anne Cloud: ah cool
Aposiopesis Fullstop: 😀
Vikki Placebo: I did make a list of Library items that i found usable (avatar stuff)
Candide LeMay: can you supply custom avatars for the sign up library?
Sandling Honey: np: Purple Confusion – Running Behind Butterflies
NeoBokrug Elytis: Auto-equipped avatars? No. But once they learn the basics of SL they can then get some other avatars with insturctions on how to change that
Second Life: Vikki Placebo gave you SL Library Stuff.
Vikki Placebo: Isn’t there some way of making an outfit/UUID?
NeoBokrug Elytis: No.
Anne Cloud: Offering something near the landing point is probably the closest one can get?
Vikki Placebo: Or links maybe, via a notecard?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Library avatars or NOTHING.
Candide LeMay: energy cloud
Anne Cloud: Ultimately, new users will need to figure out how to not use library avs eventually.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): “lesson 46: Attach a flexy mustache ”
NeoBokrug Elytis: I think offering visitors an avatar later in the OI, is a lesson in itself.
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): its not easy to navigate the inventory without language tho
Verity Goodnight: a bling tache is lesson 47
NeoBokrug Elytis: The games here will always be free, but we’re going to make a product that doesn’t affect the game — but makes life easier and we’re going to : Sell it to non-residents. Discount it to residents, and offer it free to Patrons and “Higher tier” residents. Basically, it’s this (but with options and complex):
Dexter Bogdanovich: will the noobs be able to enter wl game? if so, isnt a minimum age of 1 year or payment info needed to attach game hud?
NeoBokrug Elytis: You click Masheen or trader to start the trade. You rez the item we’re selling. You put your salvage in it (say 50 scrit from your inventory). It waits a few seconds, then rezzes it hyper fast at the trader.
Sandling Honey: np: M83 – Car Chase Terror
NeoBokrug Elytis: Or, if you’re combining something at Aeg or a Masheen, it has an “obfuscation” mode, to help deter snoops.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Will noobs be able to play: If they follow the same rules we have now. Payment info on file, or be a resident for a year.
NeoBokrug Elytis: We will be pushing the perks of premium membership near the end.
Candide LeMay: sandling is this from a movie or something?
Sandling Honey: I think from an audio book or something
NeoBokrug Elytis: Basically it’s an auto-rezzer so you don’t have to drag and drop from SL inventory to inworld 258097 times.
Memory Harker: Or is this from the “Trigger Depot” … ? Because, yeeeeeee!
Dexter Bogdanovich: ok
Sandling Honey: But I have no idea exactly where they got the source from
Verity Goodnight: There’s plenty of community stuff for people who don’t want to do the payment info route to enjoy while they wait their time
Sandling Honey: I looked it up a long time ago haha
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any questions about game stuff before we move on to RP and events?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Very much that Verity
Candide LeMay: well if it deals with the “we can’t rez your item at this location because we suck and you have to relog to get it back” problem i’ll buy it
Anne Cloud: How difficult is PIOF to get these days, outside of North America? Anyone who’s bought L$ through LL will have provided some payment info at some point, right?
NeoBokrug Elytis: The game is a nice free perk, and is not required to RP.
Verity Goodnight: I’ve got my paypal account hooked up
Sandling Honey: np: Do Make Say Think – The Landlord is Dead
Verity Goodnight: So if you’ve got paypal, you’re probably good
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Same here
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): or credit card
NeoBokrug Elytis: Yeah, and PIOF takes one solid day to register.
NeoBokrug Elytis: It’s not a big hurdle.
Anne Cloud: Candide: that’s… something pretty inherent to the platform. Anything that gets rezzed on something that isn’t physically there is gonna be at risk of that error.
Verity Goodnight: ^this is why I have a prim board for rezzing things on haha
Candide LeMay: anne yes but that a no-copy item just disappears instead of being returned into inventory is just dumb
NeoBokrug Elytis: Oh, stage 3 of the CG is also wastelands specific teachings. Then “play”
NeoBokrug Elytis: It will help with that Candide.
Tracey Humphreys: Hi Apos. What’s going on? Is it a dance? I thought it was fighting on Saturdays…
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Community Meeting, in dance party form!
Candide LeMay: events & game: i like the egg spawning holiday, can we get one for coal too?
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): fighting in 19 minutes
Aposiopesis Fullstop: The combat is in about 20 minutes.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any further questions about game stuff before we move on?
Tracey Humphreys: Ok…
Sandling Honey: This is purely the initiation dance
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Someone stole all the furniture
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): How did they do that though?
Verity Goodnight: Ate it
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): D:
Storm Thunders burps.
Memory Harker: I mean, I’ve never RPed NOR done game stuff here, but after a whole year, the Wastelands and all its activities are still my favorite part of SL and why would a person live elsewhere?
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): physics
Memory Harker: *blush*
Memory Harker: <—- cheerleader, of sorts.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): 😀
Aposiopesis Fullstop: \o/
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): come rp with us
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Heheh precisely, Memory!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha!
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): I’ve been all over the place but always end up back here
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Feel free to dip a toe or twelve into either of those things, though, if you like. :V
Verity Goodnight: lol I too barely do game stuff and also do not RP
Memory Harker: Well, I *have* to do WarZone, ’cause I put my foot in my mouf, so to speak.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Do eeeet!
Drifter (wastelanddrifter): or finger, tail tip or stump
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): mmm foot
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): WL: Pom Poms needed
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): if you want to scavange a little. but you dont know what to do with the stuff you find. send itto me, i will dispose of it.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Before we move on to RP and events, a component of the WLPW reboot is to have Roleplay Mentors. Basically there will be a bunch of folks who’ll volunteer to give people tips on how we do things here the correct-ish ways. Ideally I want a few people in each major time-zone for each playable race to be a sort of an expert.
Memory Harker: You, Verity, just GLAM UP THE JOINT everytime you rez.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Ha!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
Memory Harker: Ha! Witch!
Sandling Honey: np: UpCDownCLeftCRightCABC+Start- Fireflies
NeoBokrug Elytis: But, open floor for RP and discussion! GO nuts.
DoktorPileus clears his throat!
Vikki Placebo: 🙂
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Only just started RPing here but been at it for a few years elsewhere. I can always help out on the GMT front
Creamysoda Float: do i need vertex buffer and vbos clicked? In the viewer…
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): we should unrez the floor tile under the loude ghoul
Candide LeMay: i think so foxy
DoktorPileus: Brothers and Sisters! The RED REVIVAL returns! Just one halfmoon from now ((on April 17th,)) come learn the blessings of Ghoulism! Partake of strange visions and wild musicks! And, if the spirit moves you, HEED THE CALL and – if blessed – become a Ghoul!
Creamysoda Float: Okie dokes.
DoktorPileus: The night before, we Ghouls will take up whatever strange instruments we may have, and lurch our way around the Wastelands in the Red Parade! Drumming up attention, calling any sleeping Ghouls from their hovels and holes. ((6pm on the 16th!))
Memory Harker: *makes note*
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Ooo looking forward to that
Memory Harker: !!!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: It was weirdly fun last year. 😀
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): I got a big ol didgeridoo
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): I’m sure it will be ghoul’d :>
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): XD
Memory Harker: *rimshot* Mutsy!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): lol!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: But yeah! If you are interested in using the occasion to go permanently Ghoul, let me know! There are a couple arrangements we’ll be making beforehand.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Eep!
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Do you need to be Ghoul to join in the parade?
Candide LeMay: then you too can fall of the bridges without any negative consequences
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): XD
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): I could probably use my skeleton again for it
Aposiopesis Fullstop: You can if you like! Like the Revival itself, it’s a ghoul-for-a-day type of event. But, if you think your character would want to join in the weirdness, by all means…
DoktorPileus: ((You mean besides… the normal consequenes from the game?))
DoktorPileus: ((*consequences))
Sandling Honey: np: Barberos – Timur
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): ((the smell?))
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Noice! Gonna have a look for some Ghoulish attire…whatever that might be
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Also, early warning that PROMAGEDDON goes down at the end of May!
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Wooooop!!
Memory Harker: o.O
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): :O
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Saturday the 29th, I do believe…
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Fuck yeah!
Sheala (sheala.olivieri) writes it down
Memory Harker: Time seems like some kinda plasma-slinky going down the stairs of eternity, lately.
Memory Harker: “lately”
Candide LeMay: this is a good song for promageddon
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): I know! Speedy
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yeah, it’s been weeeeird.
Candide LeMay: i nominate sandling for the school band for promageddon fight night
Memory Harker: Yeah, jeeez, good set all ’round, Sandling!
Sandling Honey: 😀
Aposiopesis Fullstop: As for the usual weekly events, there’s still all of that, too! Drifter’s readings, occasional Oracle readings of a different sort, Mutant Drum Circle, Film Night, Sommerfox’s musicks, Booze & Blather, and the rotating madness of Saturdays!
Sandling Honey: Thank you! – Felt like going for a full night of math/post and strange-rock
NeoBokrug Elytis: There’s events 5/7 days of the week.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): It’s chokka!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Sometimes 6 days
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Isn’t it 6/7? Everything but Friday, mostly.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Oh wow, yeah
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): some days twice or trice
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oh! And certain Fridays, soon, too – I’m gonna make primetime Wasted Karaoke a more regular thing.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Can’t wait for that
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): prime time?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Not weekly or maybe even biweekly, but at least more than biannually. 😛
Memory Harker: And then you can also just, like, wander the JY for hours and boggle at all the brilliance and/or crap piled everywhere.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): oooh 😀
Sandling Honey: Thank you Angharad! 🙂
Candide LeMay: the only reason you can wander JY for hours is the low framerate JY grants you
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Well. “Not at ass o’clock in the morning, SLT, after an event.” More like starting at 6 or 7pm SLT.
Angharad Greggan: 🙂 you’re welcome – nice set!
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): i blame dexter
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): xD
Sandling Honey: Final song (Short one) – Splatterpink – Dolan Aproevd
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): wooooo! \o/
NeoBokrug Elytis: Take it sax man.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Okay, I think War Zone this month will take place in the Fissure.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oh yeah, and check out the Red Revival poster Mutsy made! It is rad!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Thank you for attending everyone.
Sandling Honey: \ o /
Sandling Honey: And there we have it!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): xD
The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): rad revival?
Memory Harker curtsies.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: (Less-rad posters also available through me!)
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): :O
NeoBokrug Elytis: Get me your WLPW applications, we’ll talk more once you apply. 🙂
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Cheers!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): omg yes.
Sheala (sheala.olivieri): Awesome set, Sandling
Anne Cloud: Thanks for the meeting, Neo, Thanks for the music, Sandling!
