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!
➳ Occupancy is on a slight uptick: some new residents, and some current residents snagging new parcels.
➳ GutterBlood Spoonhammer is back from his hiatus – and some of his previously-unreleased content may become available (though not as game items.)
➳ The NPC bots received some maintenance to make them more resilient through rolling restarts.
➳ The Unbridled Rage greeter bot is also getting an update to correct the Discord link.
➳ Neo still needs to do a land audit to make sure that parcels that should be for sale are for sale, and for the right price.
➳ As another reminder, since the USD-to-Linden-Dollar ratio is in flux, tier costs are set to the USD and converted to L$ in real time: you may pay more or fewer L$, but the USD cost is stable.
➳ If realworld concerns make tier payments difficult, don’t feel bad if you need to let go of a plot. If there’s a short-term issue that might delay your payment, contact Neo through IM, email, Discord, etc. and he’ll do his best to be flexible.
➳ Don’t forget that there are tier donation plates available with the other landowner freebies in the Tier Payment area: they allow anyone to directly pay tier for that plot, in one day or one week increments.
➳ Neo’s considering making the bots wander around their areas again.
➳ He’s also still considering making them all animesh instead of avatars, weighing pros and cons of each approach.
➳ Online hosting for the bots is being considered, as well, versus the current Raspberry Pi setup.
➳ New EEP functions are available in LSL and should make for smoother Estate windlight transitions at parcel borders – once Neo has time to implement them.
➳ LL still has not fixed the bug where a scripted attachment still uses script memory after it’s detached – but Neo plans to disable the HUD’s hard script limits, replacing them with chat nags.
➳ This would make it easier for heavily-scripted avatars to try the game – and would allow DoT attachments to return.
➳ This might also bring back the bug where, shortly after getting a DoT attachment effect, the camera view shifts to be inside the avatar’s head, with any head attachments visible and obscuring the view. This might be resolved if the effects are given a different attachment point.
➳ Instead of creating a new Halloween Quest this year, Neo may bring back older ones.
➳ There’s still a bug where, when a player hits 0% health, a different avatar might be teleported to the nearest NPC or Healing Machine instead. Neo is investigating.
ROLEPLAY & EVENTS:
➳ Traders and tale-tellers and tune-weavers recently gathered in Hambone Slough for the Rondyvoo on September 10. Great thanks to everyone who was part of it!
➳ The long-fanged Mwrr known as Winnie was briefly seen at the Rondy and may be prowling around once more.
➳ Bartleby Ricantaur, wandering storyteller, also arrived for the Rondy and will be around until after the next Bazaar.
➳ Flickr is hosting a World Photography Day contest that includes a category for Virtual Photography. And what’s more photogenic than The Wastelands? Up to 5 screenshots can be submitted. Submission deadline is September 19 – see their contest page for full details.
➳ Scrim Pinion and Aposiopesis Fullstop aim to host a Covers Vs. Mashups dual DJ set in late September or early October. Scrim may even resurrect his old radio station build for the occasion…
➳ Get your costumes ready: the Wastelands’ annual Halloween party, TRIGGER TREAT, will take place on Saturday, October 29.
➳ Since Discord events have been more reliable lately, Neo has decided not to pursue integrating the Discord server with a bot that would give more customizable event notices.
➳ A Google Calendar of Wastelands events is still under consideration.
➳ Reminder: The roleplay character template has been added to the Wiki – add yours today!

I. THE ESTATE
NeoBokrug Elytis: IT’S… TIME.
Memory Harker puts on her serious-meeting-time face.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Before we get started; as per the usual — we’ll discuss the three main areas of The Wastelands. That being Estate & Land, The Game, and then we’ll have an open floor for Role play & Events. Between each area there will be time for questions and comments.
Memory Harker: Are you still a —- *cams around* — yes! A BIG CHIKKIN!
Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): oh its the badass chicken, ey
Sandling Honey: Annnnd time for the big PHEW, going over into Chillax
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): *:-.,_,.-:*’“’*Yayyyyyyy!!!!*:-.,_,.-:*’“’*
NeoBokrug Elytis: This past month has been a little all over the place a lot of the discussion might dip in to areas not specifically to the topic.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Before we start for real; thanks for the tunes Sandling!
Sandling Honey: Most welcome! :D
GutterBlood Spoonhammer: all the people
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): cool mask, bro!!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Starting with estate and land things. Occupancy is up a bit, there’s a lot of new faces this past month, and that’s exciting!
Memory Harker waves to Verity across the floor.
Verity Goodnight: NEW FACES <3
Memory Harker: Yay New faces that aren’t necessarily Beezle alts!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Hah!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Delicious faces.
NeoBokrug Elytis: A few existing residents have also decided to scoop up more land as well, and that’s always helpful!
Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): That’s nice
Memory Harker: :)
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): backs
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): new faces! :D
NeoBokrug Elytis: We’re still slowly plugging away at Northgate, the community gateway. It’s getting some good progress done.
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): ay, they copied my idea :)
Memory Harker just *knows* Mutsy is planning to put a hotel on Park Place soon.
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): O.o
NeoBokrug Elytis: A few of you probably know Gutter here, and for those who don’t he’s one of the founding creators (and estate managers) of the estate. He’s been on a hiatus from SL for a bit — but now he’s back. He has plans to release his previously unreleased content for curious folks to find. We’re still working on that. It won’t be game related, but it’ll be nice perks for folks to find.
Memory Harker: WL: Monopoly
Verity Goodnight: oooh
Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): hey that’s great news, :)
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): I was planning to do out a double decker bus, maybe as a free for all hotel u_u
Itch (pervasiveitch): Yay!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oooh, neat!
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): WL CHEEZE SAMMICH\
Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): will be cool to see what you come up with
Memory Harker: Mmmm , Cheez Sammich ….
Vikki Placebo: Ooooh
Verity Goodnight: WL: Cheesy Chips
Memory Harker: And Gutter is totes legendary.
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): sorry, GRILLED cheese sammit. important distinction
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): oh that, looks awesome with what I’ve already seen :)
NeoBokrug Elytis: I needed to make updates to the estate bots, but I had been putting it off for a long while. Until said updates I would have to baby sit them on all rolling restarts, and that’s why the bots wouldn’t be where they should be.
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): ah! that explains much
NeoBokrug Elytis: It took one night of a lot of problems to update them. It was quite the hassle but they should behave for now. It ended up being about 6 hours of updating for the most minimal code change. Because libreMetaverse updated, which made me have to just have this cascading series of updates to the tools and raspberry pi.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I also noticed today that the greeter bot didn’t parse the discord link right, so I will need to update that. Fortunately that’s an easy fix.
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): damn, i am digging this tune, sandling! the voice is sending chills down my spine
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): oh damn u_u
NeoBokrug Elytis: But now (in theory), the estate bots won’t need hand-holding to log in right.
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): yes, nice vibes
Sandling Honey: Yeah, it’s gorgeous
Aposiopesis Fullstop: It’s good that they’ll get lost less. Though that time we went on a field trip to the Mainland to find where Scythejaw went was fun.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I still need to do a bit land audit to make sure parcels are for sale, and at the right price. Ever since the small parcel restructuring, things have been mildly “off”. So if you think a parcel should be for sale, but isn’t — please just let me know.
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): *makes notes to ask apo for THAT story soon*
NeoBokrug Elytis: *big
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): omg what xD
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): Yeah, I want to hear that story now xD
NeoBokrug Elytis: I also just want to reiterate that tier is priced to the USD, and when tier payments are made it’s converted to L$ in real time. So sometimes, especially in this bit of economical flux in meat space, the conversion may go up or down. It’s the same when you buy L$ from Linden Lab, you’ll get more or less.
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): yeah uwu
NeoBokrug Elytis: So I am not trying to cheat folks when tier goes up L$15 or so on a payment.
Memory Harker: *nods*
NeoBokrug Elytis: It’s always been like that, and the L$ has been relatively stable for a super long time.
Memory Harker: Cthulhu help us when we have to pay in Zuckerbucks.
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): all hail
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): we should go to meta and raid THAT.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Having said all that, I also want to re-iterate that if RL pressures are making your tier hard to afford, please don’t stress about it. If you need to tier down at anytime I’ll understand. Don’t skip a meal because of virtual land.
NeoBokrug Elytis: We cool?
Memory Harker: HAHAHA Tora. I will NOT all my avatar to look THAT bad. Sub-RUTH.
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): lol yes sir. trust me, me and my meals are bestest buds!
Verity Goodnight: coolbeans
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Solid.
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa) sheds a tier for Neo’s kindness
Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): lo
Memory Harker: Mutsy! Was that a typo or brilliance?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any questions about estate stuff before I move on to game things?
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): hahaha!!!
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): brilliance!
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): I’ll let you guess :)
Vikki Placebo: :)
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): it all comes from Mutsy having such… HUGE… tracts of land!!
Memory Harker: o.O
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): >o>
Memory Harker: You ain’t kidding, Tora!
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): I am the booty-full one here
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): ok, tell me we’ve all seen that monty python episode, or i’m going to feel really silly
Memory Harker: It’s in the MOVIE, Tora.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Movin’ on to game stuff discussion.
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): what, the albatross one?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: But there are also those tier donation plates, by the by! They’re not a great long-term solution, but they might be able to help you keep your place until you get past a short-term hurdle.
Memory Harker: This is the WL, we’ve all seen it! :P
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa) suddenly whips our something you’ve never seen!
II. THE GAME
NeoBokrug Elytis: I mentioned it earlier but the bots got an update, and they should be better about being where they should be. I was digging in the code and I got some ideas about having them wander around their areas. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, and I would rather do it in LSL than in bot code. That way it would be a nicer transition to animesh “bots”.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oh myyyy.
Memory Harker: Mutsy. o.O
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): ooh, sounds good if it’ll work :)
Memory Harker picks her jaw up from off the grimy floor.
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): lol
NeoBokrug Elytis: Because when the bots fall offline, it’s an annoyance for everyone. They also need a little bit of work, because sometimes their seats get ‘stuck’ and don’t issue commands.
NeoBokrug Elytis: So they need a bit of work still, but I think it’s all in LSL.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Alden’s already an animesh, isn’t he?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Yes.
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): ok, excellent, apo…. but just in case anybody wants to relive the glory… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNaXdLWt17A
NeoBokrug Elytis: THe thing about animesh vs libreMetavers bots is that they can use attachments as avatars. Animesh needs to be specifically designed for the character, and that’s a metric ton of work for a mesh creator.
Memory Harker: This music … making me feel … noble … valiant …. REGAL! SOARING!
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa) feels like she has wings
Memory Harker squawks like an eagle.
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): :V
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): so much for flying like eagles. now we all get organic tomato yoghurt…
Memory Harker: Someone HURT YOG-sothoth?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Regarding the estate windlight, new LSL EEP functions for estates and land owners are available, due to a JIRA I filed a while back. Once I have time to work on that we SHOULD have a more cohesive estate windlight, especially when crossing borders. It should completely fix that. I just need to re-work that bit of code and deploy it on all the regions.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Maybe you could just measure the uptime for the bots and see if it’s worth an upgrade to animesh if it’d make you have to do things over / increase complexity / decrease customizability?
Memory Harker weeps copiously.
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): nice!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oooooh, that’s very exciting.
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): hiya walker!
NeoBokrug Elytis: There’s benefits to animesh vs an actual bot, and vice versa. It’s really just a matter of weighing those benefits. I don’t like that they’re dependent on a raspberry pi on a bookshelf. I’d rather hose them online or something. :)
NeoBokrug Elytis: host*
Vikki Placebo: Could you do that easily somehow?
NeoBokrug Elytis: In theory, yeah
Vikki Placebo: (and affordably)
NeoBokrug Elytis: The burnt oak server has a lot of spare CPU cycles and ram.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I would want to containerize it though, because the burnt-oak stream is held together with a lot of duct-tape and hope.
Vikki Placebo nods!
Sandling Honey: Thx Memory :D
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): this one sounds like a fly humming brilliantly :D
NeoBokrug Elytis: Touching up again on the attached effects for DoTs in the game; I think I might go ahead with removing the script limits on the HUD, and change it to a nag on region entry. That’ll let the DoTs work again. The issue is that even though they’re temp attachments, they leave their script memory behind when they detach.
Memory Harker curtsies to Sandling. You’re kicking it in perfect gear.
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): yeah!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Which after enough fake dots and effects, you’ll have an overinflated script memory count, which trips up the limiter.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Even after all those effects are over. And honestly I really miss seeing someone engulfed in flames.
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): hahaha
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): always a hoot, that!
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): Deep fried wastelander
NeoBokrug Elytis: I know Rider Linden has plans to fix the “ghost” memory issue, but it’s been over a year since the bug came around. I am tired of waiting.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Maybe two years now. I think all those effects made our game a little more special than most.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: And the visual feedback is valuable, to have an idea of what’s happening with your opponent.
NeoBokrug Elytis: And yourself, haha
Memory Harker: XD
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): oh yes
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): let’s face it, we’re all just psychos who like watching people burn X-D
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): the radiation is good too, makes the skin glow
Sandling Honey: more buzzin songs it is
NeoBokrug Elytis: Halloween is comin’ up. Rather than a new quest I might deploy a couple older quests and give people the option of doing them. We’ll see what my prim counts are like.
Memory Harker: Howdy, Tristan, welcome to the Buzzing Insects Hour!
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): Baahh
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): ohmyfreakinGAWD i love t his song already!!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any questions about game stuff?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I’ve got two.
NeoBokrug Elytis: k
Aposiopesis Fullstop: 1) Was the excess script memory count also creating worse script times for regions as a whole, and contributing to all those cases where the HUD would break for arbitrary reasons? I know those two problems were happening at the same time, but I’m not sure if they were the same problem.
NeoBokrug Elytis: 1) No. It was just a reporting problem.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oho!
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): lol way to stick the hero landing, tristan!
Tristan Kuramoto: haha
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): lol
NeoBokrug Elytis: I think the hud breaking was just a script time problem, back before LL fixed the script times for the regions.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Once LL fixed that, a lot of problems went away.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: 2) Is it the same problem that caused the mouselook to, for some infuriating reason, move back inside the avatar’s head shortly after getting a DoT effect? Because that hasn’t happened since, I don’t think.
NeoBokrug Elytis: There’s still the “wrong person teleported” problem.
NeoBokrug Elytis: 2) I do believe that temp attachments trigger that, and I don’t know why. I may just move the emitter to av center and have them try to “move” to head height.
Aposiopesis Fullstop waves a tiny No More Deathaports sign. :V
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): oh yah, the one i’m always inflicting on others
NeoBokrug Elytis: Because if attaching to the head causes the problem vs other attach spots, and I can avoid that, I will.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I thought it already did attach to other spots. Radiation definitely picks a random spot, delightfully. :D
NeoBokrug Elytis: Yeah, some things purposefully attach to the head though.
NeoBokrug Elytis: To obscure vision.
NeoBokrug Elytis: But all those things were made before EEP settings.
NeoBokrug Elytis: So I can now inflict pain in new and fascinating ways.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Though, hmm. I’m not sure the camera thing ever happened after a Radiation DoT. I didn’t tend to be in Mouselook when I took one, since there are no Arena tiles or weapons that do Rad damage.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any other questions about game related things?
Sandling Honey: Thanks Vikki :D
Vikki Placebo: Thanks for the music, Sandling! :)
III. THE ROLEPLAY & EVENTS
NeoBokrug Elytis: Okay. I am going to paste something from an announcement earlier — just as a reminder.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Angharad has made me aware that Flickr is having a “World Photographer Day Contest”; and that in comparison to all the other tagged photos, the “WPD22Virtual” tag has very few entries in it. This seems like low-hanging fruit for us to scavenge!
Details about the contest:
Don’t forget to add your photos to our group too
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): \o/
Sandling Honey: annd thx Apo :D
Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): oo
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I’m still dithering about my 5th entry. D:
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): O_o
NeoBokrug Elytis: TL;DR: You pick up to 5 photos, post in their group, tag the photos with the tag — you might win somethin’.
Verity Goodnight: I should actually read that page rather than just have it open in my browser
Memory Harker: *makes note* ty, Neo — and Angh!
NeoBokrug Elytis: That counts as events right? :)
NeoBokrug Elytis: Okay, I am going to open up the floor for Role Play and Events discussion. After that we’ll meet up in the Great Fissure for a game of Warzone!
Memory Harker: Sandling, can i use this as my RL funeral march when the times comes?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Thanks agin for the tunes Sandling.
Sandling Honey: haha
Sandling Honey: Only if its done on boat
Memory Harker: XD
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): oh Memory v_v
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Next Saturday, September 10, starting at 10am SLT, the Rondyvoo returns to Hambone Slough! An all-day, semi-in-character traders’ festival, featuring fistfights, a salvage auction, weird beard contest, LIVE MUSIC from both Dia and from Irk, storytelling, a drinking contest, and more! :D
Itch (pervasiveitch): Wee!!
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): woo!
Memory Harker: RONDYVOOOOOO!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I’ve got a poster, if anyone wants one. And if you’d like to trade some thematic goods at the Salvage Auction, lemme know and I’ll give you a customizable stall!
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): ummm, can i join the weird beard contest
Aposiopesis Fullstop: See https://www.flickr.com/photos/fullstop/52331631988/in/dateposted/ for the full schedule.
Memory Harker: Hairwitch Beardwizard!
NeoBokrug Elytis: (brb gunna make a smol dinner)
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): HAHAHA!!! that’s a GREAT NAME, mem!!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Sure! We’ve had beards made of Manimal tails, crumpled paper, and other randomness. :D
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): a baked pea
Memory Harker: A baked pea! o.O
Aposiopesis Fullstop: https://www.flickr.com/photos/fullstop/51409752695/
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): alrighty then! sounds right up my alley. love a good challenge
Sandling Honey: I once actually considered a bandname called Luxury Beards
Memory Harker: Mutsy, sometimes you KILL me.
Memory Harker: XD
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): I usually just say what comes to mind u_u;
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): ok, now i see where beasil gets his beard or racoon tails from. always wondered but didn’t want to ask X-D
Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Beards made of manimal tails haha, good one
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Might as well mention now that the annual Halloween party, TRIGGER TREAT, will be on Saturday, October 29. It is never too early to get ready for Halloween. :3
Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Nice :D
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): yup, started getting ready mid july. still haven’t quite finished
Memory Harker: “Smooch Receptors” I like the NAME almost more than the tune!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: As for other RP-stuff, the Rondyvoo’s gonna kinda eat the Barrelhead Bazaar time next week – but the Salvage Auction is gonna fall into its same timeframe.
Memory Harker: Aposiopesis, can you confirm or deny that, starting in 2023, you will stage a Major Event EVERY OTHER WEEKEND? ‘Cause you don’t have enough to do as it is?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: But there’s still Booze & Blather every Thursday at 6pm SLT whether anybody likes it or not. :V
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): oh yah. i see you lounging around. sad, really
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): :-P
Storm Thunders raises a mug to B&B
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha! I try to keep it at a reasonable every-other-month, Memory! But, sometimes…
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): B&B, that’s usually a bed and breakfast where I am xD
Aposiopesis Fullstop: There are always more weird fun things I want to try to do, though.
Memory Harker: :D
Memory Harker goes to take nap and fix supper, so’s to be ready for more inworld jollities this night. BYE, Y’ALL!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oh! Also, later in September (or maybe early October,) Scrim Pinion and I are going to do a set together! He’s gonna deploy his weirdest covers, and I’ll bring my weirdest mashups!
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): cya soon Mem!
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): oh my! :D
Aposiopesis Fullstop: And, fingers crossed, he may even bring back his old radio station build to The Great Fissure for the occasion…
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): oh heck ,yes!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Scrim is fun!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: He is!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: OH. Neo, question for you….
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): just the name is fun
NeoBokrug Elytis: k
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): the big question
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Did you get the chance to look into those Discord bots that would help give more nuanced / frequent event reminders?
NeoBokrug Elytis: I did, but then discord seemed to have fixed the issue with events not being announced — so I decided against using them. Because that was the reason I wanted to use them.
Sandling Honey: and to close this session with… don’t hand me the Smurfs Themesong to edit.. This is what happens:
NeoBokrug Elytis: lolwut
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): oh god!!!! holds happy breaths in anticipation!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Ah. I thought it wasn’t just that they weren’t being announced, but that people wanted to be able to get the kinds of / times of reminders that worked better for them. Did you get to look at the Google Docs event calendar, though?
NeoBokrug Elytis: I did actually, but I haven’t done anything with that yet.
Verity Goodnight: I have a bot in my own server, so I put the event I want to turn up to into that and slap on the “remind me 10 minutes before” thinger
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): dang sandling! this is creaping me the freak out!! well done!
Verity Goodnight: also good for reminding me when to take food out of the oven :D
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
NeoBokrug Elytis: You miss out on the carbon then!
Sandling Honey: Allllrighty
NeoBokrug Elytis: Okay 3pm! I am heading to the Great Fissure for Warzone. Thanks again for playing Sandling!
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): woot!
Sandling Honey: Haha, most welcome, and thanks! :D
Mutsy (mutsy.kaligawa): thanks Sandling!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yar, thanks, Sandling!
Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): :D
Qrow (rogueviews): thank you for the tunes and the information
Aposiopesis Fullstop: shouts: TO THE FISSURE!
Sandling Honey: \o
Vikki Placebo: Thanks, Sandling!
Tora the Explorer (toraona.thane): thanks, sandling. you’re my hero… smooches!
