Should we stay or should we go?... oh what to do, what to do???

Greetings all..

I have read a few blogs recently, Lalo's most especially very detailed & informative blog, which made me think that maybe it was time to move our blogs over to wordpress too as I know many others have already done.. but I dont like too much change it throws me out of sequence completely! I have backed up our blogs to my HD & do advise everyone of you to at least do that... I have also uploaded 2 of them to wordpress now here is my Dilema, although you can backup & then import your Blog to wordress... you then have to go through sorting out all the posts coz it doesnt save them exactly as they are here.. it doesnt save the seperate pages or widgets etc & that all takes time to sort out, thats if you can even find the same sort of widget you were using here, which as yet I havent. Though I am beginning to like the set up over at wordpress, you can have more pages for one thing, here you can only have 10. I still have to find templates that i like & that give me what I need for each blog..... sighs... I suppose its just making that final step... I have already had to move this blog once from ning when they stopped all free sites.... Oh I hate changes! gggrrsssss

I will probably end up making the move & when I do I will post it here, till then see you all InWorldz ;)

New Website? Really???

Well after all that I have to wonder was it worth it... I really dont see much of any changes, but the new looking website has certainly caused some problems! 3 pages worth of problems infact, im still not sure if all was fixed. Then there was the Big Error made by the website developer that could have been a lot worse. Had that been any other grid, we Residents would not have been alerted to it, as it was InWorldz, we residents were kept fully Informed.

 This screenshot is from inside on my Account... dont see much of any changes there apart from it now looks like the forums :/
 This is the main website view & apart from some new pics & a rolling background... I dont see any real changes here either... oh yes the new login... whoopidoo!
Oh Transactions!

yes i see they now have lines between each transaction... hmmmm.. still doesnt add up though & i still dont have 0 transactions, suppose I will still have to charge 1 izzy for things i need to track :(

When I look at the new website though & I am not seeing anything really new... I mean, no market, no avatars for New residents, same old ruthie... I have to say to myself WTF! For the problems it caused, was it worth it... not in my book. It just made delays in other things as the Founders had to spend their time fixing all of this up... I really do hope the Contractor they hired wasnt paid yet!

Some Residents scream out for shinies, but I am of the mindset... if it aint broke dont fix it, at least for the time being.. at least until all the other little bugs & fixes are sorted, at least until we do have a stable grid, at least until we do have physics on board... shinies like this are just not needed.

See you InWorldz

Its coming.....

Its finally about to Land... The New Website personaly I liked the very 1st one, basic yet it worked for me, though I realise we had to progress at some point I just dont like shinies when were still waiting for stability... the latest website would have sufficed, for now IMHO. Unless of course Ele has some little suprises in the new one.. oohhh maybe an Online Market, now that would be good! Or perhaps the riddance of Ruth again.... I still think that was a backwards move, that was completely unnecessary, wouldnt have taken me but a second to remove the offending logo, but there you go & it certainly showed us who are friends were & werent ;)

Moving on.... The grid is quiet at the moment with it being Holiday season, so its time to reflect a bit & perhaps enhance on what you do have. We have some plans in mind for our store... it needs to grow as it houses so much now.. our own creative talents having improved so much in so many areas... scripting is the one we both fail at though, He is better than i with it lol, which is why he does all the scripting for our products :P We are really getting into the building at the moment... I mainly use my standalone as I have absolutely no lag at all on it, no interuptions, not that I have that many as most ppl IM Him 1stly... unless of course its someone spamming me with bloody New store openings! Grrrsss I really hate that! Having someone I do not know, have never heard of, just drop a flippin notecard on me telling me their store is opening.... so what? If I want to know about places, events or new stores opening up I will go look at the Forum or classifieds. I would never presume to do something like that to anyone & then to have the said person argue with me over it when I tell her i dont like being spammed... to the point of her telling me she doesnt believe in my lifestyle choice.... do I care? Not in the least, its my choice & it was she who invaded my space when she spammed me... so that is one store we will never visit or buy from...

Sometimes I worry about the future of Inworldz, will it turn into another SL which most of us really do not want. The Founders are, I believe, taking the grid in another direction, with this new script engine... I just hope, we the Residents can keep the community spirit live & kicking as we grow... It shouldnt be too hard... if the most of us dont accept certain behaviours inherited from another place & keep on the path we are on... then hopefully Inworldz will breed a new & refreshing kind of Resident... hmm that doesnt sound right... what I mean is.... well I think you all know what i mean ;)

Thats all from me for now... see you Inworldz..

oh btw incase you are not aware of it... the fair has been extended to run till July 22nd.... so if you havent paid a visit yet, please do... not only is it for a worthy cause, but they did such a splendid job on the build, its a must see.... smiles

Phlox Rox!

InWorldz is now running on the Brand New, made for InWorldz, Phlox Script Engine & so far we personaly havent found any problems with it, but are aware tranq & the team are running about doing any fixes needed ;) Here is the list, by Jim of what has been fixed on this roll out...

I'm getting asked if this fix or that fix is in this update, and since the previous list wasn't final and a few more changes have been made since the beta list, and since the other was lost in the middle of that Phlox thread, here is the final list of changes in the R1070 "Phlox" rollout upgrade that has been applied grid-wide in the last 24 hours:

Reliability and Performance
- The latest and greatest Phlox implementation, many performance, functional and compatibility changes applied, including a few final ones beyond the most recent beta run.
- Inbound HTTP is now supported.
- Attachments are now supported in group notices.
- Fixed the incorrect filtering of newline characters that was rearranging profile comments, notice text and other multi-line text fields.
- Avatar jitter/bounce while standing should be greatly reduced and in most cases eliminated.
- Small changes to position no longer affect avatar velocity so that the avatar won't drift.
- Disabled accidental movement of prims caused by applying grab events to non-physical objects. Should fix some unexpected "cracks" between prims.
- Fixed timestamps on object "Inspect" operations. (e.g. Fixes "1969" dates on Inspect lists.)
- Reliability fixes (concurrency issues between threads) for some cases of region crossings and inventory transfers.
- Fixed an exception that would always occur if an unlink was a partial unlink (i.e. one that required a link of the remaining prims). This fixed Mantis #702 where unlinking one prim from a link set would result in the full unlinking of the all prims in the link set.
- On an owner transfer, the default click action is now set to to Touch if it was set to Buy Object and it was not for sale (for all child prims as well as the root prim).
- Problems with objects being "partly" locked should be fixed. This problem caused a user with mod permissions to be unable to clear the "Locked" status in some cases.
- An object's "Locked" status is now cleared on an owner transfer.
- Fixed a bug introduced in rev 852 which was a bit overzealous in fixing the fake "locked" bits for Next Owner permissions as well as the current owner. The "locked" bits should not apply to next owner. The result was that a Take and a rez would result in modify being enabled for next owner even if it was disabled in the Inventory item. This bug did not make it to the main grid except on the birthday test regions.
- Fixes camera and also other cases of strange positioning on region crossings.
- Fixed a crash that could occur when there is a timeout authorizing an incoming agent, and increased that timeout.
- Negative responses for sim information queries are now cached to prevent lag when riding along a sim edge.
- New debit requests now correctly always pop up the permissions dialog regardless of if it's granted or not already.
- Fixed edit mode selection for singles, groups and coalesced objects.
- Fixed region crossings to avoid being recognized as attachment adds.
- Improved the error handling for communications between the messaging and user servers.
- Buy operations on objects that you own, or someone else owns, have been improved both in terms of usability (error messages) and security fixes.
- Fixes to the criteria used to send object properties to a viewer.
- Users missing an inventory skeleton no longer cause an exception.
- Fixed an issue where changing the shape of a prim incorrectly removes the prim from the physics actor dictionaries. (Also Mantis #825 and at least 1 other bug report.)
- Many inventory operations and other packets are now asynchronous.
- Added a second class of fire and forget pool for long IO operations.
- UUID name requests and attachment rezzing are now asynchronous.
- Control events are filtered to avoid spew caused by the client sometimes sending excessive control packets to the server.

- Fixed llEdgeOfWorld() to avoid requiring DNS lookups.
- Fixed llEdgeOfWorld() to correctly determine which of the four region edges a direction points to, returning whether or not there is a neighboring region across that edge, or end of world, regardless of the position and direction specified.
- Fixed llGetAgentInfo() to include AGENT_WALKING when an agent is moving and AGENT_ALWAYS_RUN is set (i.e. when an avatar is running).
- Fixed llAvatarOnSitTarget() to return the agent sitting on the prim that the script is running in, if that prim has a sit target set and an agent sitting on it. (Previously it returned the root prim's status if it also had a sit target, even if there was no longer a script there and no agent sitting.)
- Fixed a breakage in llGetTime()
- Fixed llRequestAgentData() to return 0 for DATA_ONLINE if the user does not exist
- Added full support for touch() events.
- Fixed the return values for llDetectedTouchUV/llDetectedTouchST() in touch_end events (Mantis 771).

Immortal Legions in Inworldz!

Immortal Legions is a game similar to Bloodlines, but not as intrusive. The Creator Zen Gloom, developed this game for Inworldz, keeping in mind all the things people did not like about Bloodlines. He has gone far beyond what Bloodlines has to offer, IMHO... Immortal Legions is a hud you can purchase at a very reasonal cost.. there are bloods for all kinds of Avatars... Fae, witch, demon, vampire to name but a few. Once you wear the Hud you can hunt other Hud owners, have combat with them, destroy them.. it has so many functions to it. Now where some Residents did not like the idea of Hud owners being able to bite/gain energy from any Resident not wearing a Hud, without their knowledge, others recognised that You just cant have it both ways. A none player being bitten, has no knowledge of it, they dont get a pop up note telling them thay have been bitten, their name does not go into any data base.. it is just a means for Hud owners to recharge their meters, so they can continue play.

We know Bloodlines has given the whole vampire game play a bad name, most Residents you talk to, hate it with a vengeance, but Immortal Legions is different to bloodlines & has removed all the 'bad' things about bloodlines that players did not like. We really do think this Game should be given a chance & the Creator should be Applauded for His efforts.

We met Zen Gloom, the creator on His 1st day in Inworldz, we were building up our Gor Sim & he landed right in the middle of the Market. We offered Him space to sell His creations, as he did them & a Home for him & his girls in the Slaver House, as he then took on the Role of Slaver, but He did so much more than that... He helped us to build up the Regions, he brought new Residents in for Gor & we could soon see He was a very good creator. His 1st project was the Gorean Combat Meter & he developed a way for Residents to have Combat without the need of Physics. He also made the weapons to go with it... all can still be purchased i believe at His store on Pisces. Immortal Legions can be found on Major bay.

We do hope Residents will at least look at this game with an Open mind & not dimiss it out of hand because they think its Bloodlines. These Huds & there are many for any type of Role Play you can imagine, they can really enhance Your role play because they are so much more that what Bloodlines ever was.

See you all Inworldz...

IDI Party!

Just left the party on IDI, it was so nice to catch up with people we hadnt seen in so long... There were over 52 People on that sim when we left, now I crashed out just before we did leave,
  and it took me ages to see myself rezzed, even though everyone else saw me rezzed... but hey 52 People! Can still remember being Euphoric when we got 20 without crashing lol... Phlox is soooo Great!
Can hardly wait till it rolls out on May 24th... Thank you to Ele for the Party & thank you to the phlox team who are making our world a much better & stable place to be ;)

Well Wishes to All
Gaius & rosa ;)

Creators V Players V Merchants?

Players = Residents who do not create & prefer to purchase goods in a VW

Creators = Residents who love to create & mainly Create for their own needs
Merchants = Residents who create & sell their wares to the VW

Presently we seem to have more Merchants & Creators InWorldz than we do Players, that has nearly always been the case Inworldz... However Merchants & Creators can be Players too & InWorldz, amongst the majority of residents, you do seem to find Creators & Merchants supporting each other. I think that is what makes Inworldz Unique!

However there are the exceptions.... A Merchant who thinks they are being copied just because another Merchant produces something similar, or has the same idea & produces something very disimilar, but along the same lines, so Merchant One goes out of their way to make cruel jibes against Merchant two. Fortunitly it doesnt happen often, but it does happen, as we can vouch for having been targeted by such a Merchant.

Merchants & Creators are in the Many in InWorldz, you are bound to get similar looking items, same as You do in SL... We each put our own personal stamp to our products, at least I hope we do. Not long ago when we were still new some newer Merchants were using Template productions, so there did seem to be a lot of the same fashions around at that time, but we have grown since then & so too I would hope have the talents of the Creators who used templates, in the beginning. We all have to start somewhere...

The Beauty of InWorldz  is that its a Creators Paradise... No upload fees, so no real overheads except your own space, which is so cheap... it can be as minimal as you can afford, even free in some Regions. New Residents come to InWorldz & suddenly find themselves Creating, perhaps for the very 1st time, even if they have been in SL for many years beforehand.

I believe as we grow we will find more & more of the Player Residents coming to InWorldz especially when Phlox & Physics are added to the grid, which isnt that far away now.... We have come a long way & InWorldz is such a Nice friendly grid that we simply cannot fail...

It is great to be an Inworldz Resident!

Phlox Test Regions

Plox is about to be rolled out to the following Regions for further testing...

This as Posted by Tanq

Raglan Shire
Snake River
Isle of Alchemy
Angel Beach North East
Ardhon en Ceredir

There will also be a Task Force to help track down and help fix the causes of any script breakage found on the test rollout of Phlox. Breakage can include any known incompatibilities between engines up to and including bugs found in the Phlox engine after the rollout.

This task force will also provide alternative script implementations for simple scripts that may break for which there is no longer any source access for.

Sunday, April 24, 2011

One Region still available...

If anyone out there is looking for a Region we have one last Region as of today that could use a new owner. The name of the Region is ChanLi. Please search it on the Map and take a look. If you're interested in it please IM GaiusJulius CaesarAugustus in world or, comment here, PM me on the forum. We'll be happy to set you up for transfer.

Phlox Test at Welcome center!

Tonight we tested Phlox on our 11k+ prim welcome center with everyone wearing AOs, their favorite tiny avatars, even a unicycle. The results were awesome. We were all able to move around, chat, dance and have an awful lot of fun for over 40 minutes while other avatars were coming and going. We got to 67 avatars having fun on our welcome center with much overhead available to have even more people stop by. It should also be noted that this is an unoptimized build for debugging.
Eventually we hit a network timeout calling into a grid service that took down the region. We’re taking a look at the stack trace and determining how to mitigate the problem.

Thousands of scripts running and the only lag we had on the region was when we had a couple avatars teleporting into the region, and on the client. This demonstrates the reason we took on this project and why it was so important. Being together is so important and we want to make sure everyone can gather with their friends and enjoy their world.  No clouds required.

as posted by Tranq on IWT 

They have asked for Residents to  volunteer their regions for further testing 

See more Pix from this great event!

Full Circle!

Things seem to have turned a full circle for us at the moment, having been able to offload the 27 Regions, we had with our Tenents kept safely with the new owners, we now find ourselves renting a 1/4 sim on Genesis, right where we began... We had that region renamed a long while ago, but it is probably one of the 1st private regions there ever was in IW, its where we had our home when we 1st got together & where we built our store... that is now on our Home Region, Scorpio, but we wanted the 1/4 region for the Prefabs he has done, he built a lot for our R/P regions, so now he will place those out for sale at our prefab store on Genesis. Also keeping Divine Intuition going on Pisces, which was another old region of ours we had renamed. so yes it feels like we have come full circle... smiles.

We thank each of the new owners for being able to take the regions & tenents over... We know it must have been a headache for Ele to sort out, but hopefully we made that process a little less of a headache with Him being so organised with it all...

It has been nice to not have the stress that running a rental business can bring & just being able to do what we wish to do & start enjoying our Home, catching up with friends & being able to chill out lol

I do miss some parts of it though I am sure before long with all the things we are now able to do, those parts wont be missed at all. We really have been surprised by the community & in a lot of ways it has made us realise that we have been missing out on a lot... that will no longer be the case as we begin to get involved more with what is happening around the grid & be able to attend events, health permitting, as & when they occur.

So you may see us around the grid more... please say hello if you do ;)

Back to Creating!

Well as some of you may have read on the Forums GJCR Rentals is having to close its doors! :(

So what does that really mean for our Future?

It means that due to ill Health, and for the present time, Gaius will no longer be able to spend a lot of Hours on the grid as he used too & when he is able to we would be better served spending that precious time together doing what we like to do & just enjoying all IW has to offer, without the added stress that came with running a rental business. As much as we both enjoyed it, it was very stressful at times & always time consuming which didnt leave us a lot of time for much of anything else.

We both love to create & that sort of went on the back boiler a bit as our Business grew, so now we can spend some time getting back to creating. You will always see us both on the grid together, but mostly early mornings it is just I with both avatars logged in, I try to get most of my work done while he is sleeping so when he wakes up we can have time together & just enjoy that time, for however long we can do.

In the past we have had our work, pulled apart, disected & sometimes cruely ridiculed because some residents felt a resentment towards us for whatever their reasoning. It never stopped us from creating though & never will do because its what we both enjoy doing, myself especially so... I do so because i need to feel productive in a way i cannot any longer in the real world.

We may no longer 'fit in' with the world that is emerging in IW, but it will never stop us from being there or supporting it all we can do, as we have always done... no one can ever say we did not fully support IW or its Founders. Nor will it stop me from telling it like it is, thats just me ;)

At the moment I am trying to catch up on designs i had done but never had time to get out because of all the work we had to do to keep up with the rentals. We have so many things incomplete, which we will now have time to complete & get out there. At the moment I am enjoying doing more landscaping & hope to bring you a lot more new & Hopefully inventive creations.

We will still have our Divine Intuition space over on Pisces & we hope to do a lot more with that & the blog that goes with it... also the fashion blog, were always out shopping & he is always buying me new outfits... he spoils me... smiles. I hope to get some work done on that soon & make it what i intended... a review of all IW Creations & Creators.

So hopefully too I will be posting more here ;)

See you all Inworldz

2 Year rez day!

Wow 2yrs already!

Yes today I am 2yrs old in InWorldz... I think I might be the oldest resident now too... oh apart from Ele & legion of course who are both just ancient in here

Thought I might share a little bit of History with you ;)

Well I came at the Invitation of one of the now retired Founders... Lecktor. I had just left the disastrous OLG & was seeking another 'new World' I had already joined LCO & was enjoying that but.... then I came to IW & I have never looked back since!


Thats me a few days in after fixing myself up a wee bit ;)

There were no Mentors then, infact i came in to an empty grid as i am in UK & they were all sleeping haha I suppose I am fortunate being a creator myself I was soon able to upload my stuff & make myself look halfway decent. Back then the Mainland was on a free to build for all & i well took advantage of that! I fell in love with the middle Region Cactus Flats, mainly because it was the only Flat region on the mainland, all the others had mountains back then. They didnt last long though, ele didnt like the mountains ;) I soon began building...
It took me all of 14 days to build up that store & come to the decision to purchase that piece of land on April 26th I proudly took possession of cactus Flats & my store was born...

Back then I spent every waking moment being mostly in IW, but I also still had my business to run in SL, I had already sold my land there & was only renting, but I still needed to spend sometime there, didnt I? Well that time became less & less as I came to Love IW more & more.... loving all the work being done to make things good, all the features & the glitches of which there were many lol
Like the day my sim looked sick on the map?
or the 1st time I logged in to this....

Up till then I had slowly been building up my 'stock' from scratch as i didnt have SI, but then someone posted about a new viewer that could copy your rezzed items in sl ? What! well this i did with abandon!
I had never seen anything like this before & meerkat became my new toy! I loved it! sadly it died, but it was fun while it lasted!

A lot of us from the OLG came here with great expectations, but also sadly feeling a little deflated & obviously Cautious! I began to see old friends here... Onyx (Gaius) came April 22nd, also Mouser, Blad, Mortus, the smarts & a few others who have since left. Onyx had SI & began bringing in some things for me that you just couldnt get with meerkat, animations, sounds to make the chairs & birds come to life... oohhh I could model too now. I already had an AO, leck had given me one, but now with my animations i could make my own ;)

Each day that passed seem to bring us something new, Ele fixing the classifieds, bringing us a currency, all done without any pre warning i might add... when ele gets a bee in her bonnet... well just look out haha

A few of us Residents were working on the welcome area at IDI, it was a Roman theme back then... more & more new Residents were coming in, being on IDI we could catch them. Then Ele created the Mentors Group & I was very proud to have been asked to become a Mentor...
back then we had an alert... Ele would see them coming... 'quick everyone to IDI' and we would bundle over & do what we could to help. I loved being a Mentor, but time began to run away with me as my life here took a turn for the better & I partnered with Gaius, my dear friend, who, as Onyx, the Gorean warrior had, had me running for the hills! haha but thats another story ;)

All in all its been an incredible 2 years! I wouldnt give IW up for anything! I am placing some links here to slideshows on
I do hope you will go & view & just see how far we have come...

Now I would like to say a Big Thank you to every Resident here for helping to keep this Community... thriving & a Big thanks to The Founders, without whom this world would not exist!
& a Very Big thank You & much Love to Gaius, who has made these 2yrs Wonderfully Happy for me.

Invitation to ALL Creators...

greetings one & all....

Not long ago it was mentioned here by one of our residents about an Art Fest... well we sort of liked the sound of that, but as we both 'feel' All Creators in VW's are sort of Artists... we thought we would make this a Creators fest

We have a Region were willing to donate to the cause for a couple of months... we figured a Month for creators to build what they want within the set theme... then a Month or so for it to be displayed & viewed...

We were thinking of maybe having around 16 x 4096 sized plots which would give creators a good proportion of prims to play with ... However that means only 16 creators could claim the free plots, but if this proves successful & popular... we might keep on doing it lol

Were just really putting the feelers out there for any interested in doing this, we thought to invite photographers & machnomeners... or whatever they are called... to come along & capture it all.

I was thinking of maybe having Fantasy as the theme as then you can really let your imaginations run wild, but that would be put to an open vote....

Anyway let us have your thoughts if you could do...

Thanks in Advance
Gaius & rosa ;)

Japan Earthquake Relief Funds

As the World comes to terms with the full horror & realisation of the Japan Earthquake  our thoughts go out to those who have lost everything. I cannot even begin to imagine such devastation. I watch the newsreels in complete & utter disbelief. To see so much devastation, complete towns obliterated. So many lives lost & my heart just goes out to each & everyone of them.... There but for the grace of God, go I.

As if they havent suffered enough, they now have the added threat of Radiation from 3 Nuclear Reactors & another Tsunami is expected in 3 days time.... All we can do is Hope & pray that one does not cause as much Devastation as this one did.

If you are looking to help via donations please ensure you choose official sources... I have added some links here

The Park has returned .... it will carry on in the same way the previous owner ran it... its free for all residents, a place to call Home, to relax with friends & hopefully make some new ones... a hang out, a place to rez your items, somewhere to dance, cuddle, get intimate...

Were in the process of building a funfair & a roller skating rink & also planning to do an underwater world.

Soon to come will be Freebies & info where Residents can learn how to build, design & create just about anything

We hope residents will enjoy their time at The Park

Well wishes

Gaius & rosa ;)

Keeping it Fresh!

We are hearing from Merchants nearly all the time about 'no Sales' yet were not seeing nothing fresh from these merchants, no updates to their creations, just the same stuff they put in Months ago. Even in SL we always kept bringing out new designs, its why we have so many lol. In there i felt pressured to bring out new releases upto 3 times a week in IW I have never felt that need, yet we still bring out New Releases as much as we can do, there is nearly always something new & fresh to bring visitors to our store...

Just like in RL a merchant needs to keep things fresh.... New releases are one way of doing that. You also need to advertise. now the Inworldz Classifieds is not the best, it needs sorting out, but there is nothing to stop a Merchant from posting to the classifieds on the forums, thats where we go to find things & where we tell every new resident to go to for any info.

So if your not getting any sales try looking at your merchandise, is it the same as its always been? Have you brought out anything new recently? Are you advertising?

It isnt a question of 'we will build it they will come' You have to show that you are there, you are available... to answer customer questions. Stocking up a store, then just leaving it for months on end with nothing fresh going on there & nothing new to the eye, is not going to keep the customers coming back to your store, they may have bought what you have already so what else is there to buy?

So if you really want to make it in any world, you have to put in the work & the effort.

See you InWorldz

New Update to grid

The new update is really good Patch R639

one of our unused regions was used in the beta test Twisted Isle so we went over there to test out the new perms & i have to say i am impressed!

I can now change the perms on all the stuff he is bringing in for me on SI without having to rez the darn attachments out & re attach them which really slows you down, as we sell all our items now at copy/mod & not mod/trans as we used to in SL.

As far as we know it has been updated over the whole grid now though I believe there are a few minor hiccups

We havent been Inworldz yet today so we dont know if any of our Regions are affected, hopefully not as we had 3 down for hours yesterday, one of them being our very popular Shopping district Pisces

But we have to expect these hiccups & at least in IW we know they will be sorted ASAP!

So hats off to the Founders for this latest update.... very well done!

Funny how when one is asked for truth and provides it it's still thought of as a lie. This is why I often say a person honestly makes their own truth to almost all things. It's common that if an accident is eye witnessed by any number of people all of them seeing the exact same thing. Each and everyone of them will have a totally unique story as to the occurring events.

So when I was asked just today actually about the truth of how some in the words of one person were, "Butthurt" because the Starter Avatars that were made by I and my partner rosa has our "brand" on them and supplied this information. We were still accussed of lying. Then too we were told that we were totally wrong about cliques too. Though the two aren't connected to each other all together.

In fact the fact that rosa mentioned cliques and the starter avatars together certainly made it seem I suppose they were mutually about the same people and/or events. Let me be the first to say that too was a lie. Though others may have you believe otherwise. Anyone that truly knows me and rosa knows. We'll give you the truth no matter how much it may hurt even ourselves. We're not one to sugar coat our feelings or beliefs just to make anyone else happy.

If you like being in a clique good for you! I personally have no real objections. After all what is a clique? Lets review that a little. A clique by it's very definition is: an inclusive group of people who share interests, views, purposes, patterns of behavior, or ethnicity. A clique as a reference group can be either normative or comparative. Given this definition it certainly sounds to me like it can be a nice group of "friends" doesn't it? At least when it was spoken out against that's what we were told it was and NOT a clique. Not that it matters to me just stating the obvious here.

So you have your opinions and I have mine. I will forever and always stand my ground and not hide what I say or know to be the truth. When asked for the truth I will give it to the absolute best of my ability. If that too offends you and you don't wish to speak to me knowing I might just remember it being said and happen to mention that fact at some point when asked to recollect it. Then by all means please refrain from speaking what you feel and believe too to be truth. I don't mind either way.

At the end of the day when I lay my head down to sleep. The only ones whose actions I have to be happy with in the dealings of the day are mine and my girl rosa's. No one elses matter. Though of course the friends I keep may play some part. They too are responsible for themselves. After all we're all supposed to be adults. So do what you like and live your life your way. Enjoy it thats what life is for to enjoy. I'd love to get along with everyone fact is as much as anyone can attempt to do that not everyone always will.

While I still believe IW to be a great Family of people. Truth is even families don't always agree on everything. Hell I argue with my real life family a lot. Does that make us hate each other? No just means we each understand we won't always agree though we damn sure do respect the other persons right to not have to. When we're asked a question we give an answer that is the best one we can give or we just refrain and decide it's just not worth it. Either is a choice. Which one we choose when is totally up to us. Today I chose to use my voice and say what I feel like saying loud and clear. So here it is for all to read and enjoy where it won't be deleted or erased. And if what may had been needs to be resaid. By all means state such I'll put it right here so you can see it again.

Till we see you InWorldz. Wish you all the best and much success!

Dont you just hate Cliques? I do with a vengance!

We have been watching Cliques form within IW for a long time now, we have seen some join the clique then for some reason they leave or no longer log in so much. Cliques will form wherever you are, at work, at school, in the office & most definitely in VW's. People in Cliques can be downright nasty, although they give the impression of being so nice. Cliques thrive on Drama & being the cause of drama, even though they will be adament they hate drama! They also post in code... leaving little inuendos that only someone else in the clique will understand... This has been bothering me for quite some time now, most especially since we discovered ruth was returning until Ele had the time to implement the Multi choice, which i might add had always been the intent anyway, but some Residents objected to it being Our Starter Avatars that were used, spouting Favoritism. etc etc.. Objecting to our logo on the jeans, what creator doesnt put their logo on their clothing? FFS.... So the founders, fed up of the complaints from 'some' decided to bring ruth back until we had the Multi choice... I mean, as if they dont have enough to do! So let me set the record straight on a few things here.... Firstly Ele put the call out for the starter avatars the moment she fixed it & wanted to see it run, thats how Ele works... she was on IDI at the time & a lot of Residents were present... We just happened to be the 1st Merchants to get her the package she needed complete with the licence which she already had from us anyway. There was no Favoritism because of the amount of Land we hold, Ele doesnt work that way. Oh & lets set the record straight on that too... Most of our Regions were taken over from Residents who approached us because they needed to offload them & they knew we wouldnt just clear the damn things & leave any residents there without a home. There are very few that we have actually just gone & bought from the Land mass.

We have recently been referred to as Walmart! Well you know... I would much rather sell Affordable quality Items than be seen as some sort of rip off merchant! We try to keep our prices fair for everything we sell & our rents fair too, so every Resident can afford to have their own little 'Dream'.

So now I have got that off my chest I will end with saying... I dont have a mean bone in my body & we will both do all we can to help a person in need. I can spot a faker a mile off, infact we both can. First impressions are rarely wrong, and once we both that get feeling we avoid these people like the plaque. We have each other & we have those we consider true Friends, they know who they are.... as for the Cliques... all I have to say to those who redicule others for their work..... What goes around comes around & one day soon it will all come back on You!

Have a great day in Inworldz
We always do ;)
