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
