So if you haven’t heard OnRez is closing its doors because it is being bought out by Second Life and Xstreet is going to be meshed with the viewer. I use OnRez and their oh-so-nice vendors for my business. While I could switch to Xstreet, I don’t want to. Also since the business is oh-so-successful I don’t want to keep flushing money down the toilet. So it is closing. Meaning that all my lamps are going on sale for $100. It is fun building the lamps and I might still build them just for fun. Links to the shop are below. It ends when OnRez closes, on the 11th

Now, I want to say on happy note that I’m going to open an art gallery on the sims! It is going to be a small time affair with no really big plans. I’m going to be renting out a loft in the Holy Dove apartment building. I want to have small shows with like meet the artist, parties, and stuff like that. I have no clue what to call it, but I’m writing the rundown tonight, after hw of course. It should be a fun project to run. Anyway got to go tutor!

Okay, so HBlue and HAzul need more people! We had an exodus of people during the last few months and we need people to fill those gaps. Now if you have a home or a shop already, please still read this post as I may need your help as well. Note, I’m not part of the owners of the sims, but a highly concerned friend, resident, and vendor.

Here are my ideas on getting more attention for the sim.

1. I feel like we need to get more higher profile shops in the sim. We have a handful of small, locally based ones that get little traffic. Now here in lies the Catch-22, in order for us to get the traffic we are looking for, big/medium sized shops have to come in, but chances they are only going to come if they get a large traffic number. So this probably means that this isn’t a good solution, but still should be on the table if nothing else works.

2. Adversting. I don’t know how many classified ads we have put forth on SL(tm) Search, but I think it is time that we move to something that will get more clicks. I really think we need to put ads in the major magazines, newspapers, and possibly blogs so we can get out the message that we are looking for residents to the wider SL(tm) audience.

3. Possibly lower the prim rate so that way the price can go down. I know that there are other places that charge a lot more for a small amount of prims, but how many people need a few hundred prims? I believe there are more people at the lower priced end of the market than there are at the higher end. Or even better, how about charging a base fee for the size of the island, then add the fee for the number of prims one is using, so that way people who have big islands won’t be paying less then someone who is paying for a small island.

Anyway these are just some thoughts that I have, but you have any ideas that the sims could use?

There might be another post after this, but I felt the need to do a random update.

  • Monte Carlo Night is off. Doing Winter Ball in December when I have more time to set it up.
  • Friends, please send Christmas wishlists to me or Adia and we will see which gift is the cheapest.
  • I will DJ this Sunday, 4-6pm
  • Cat found this new crazy store called -RC- Cluster. It has the most random stuff for really good prices! I will get a SLURL asap. Best of all I got a free gift for being a blogger so I will have to check that stuff out and report back. And I will have pictures. YAY
  • Speaking of pictures, I took some at the Princeton sims and will post those. Unlike the previous times where it has been all untouched, I have decided to play around with the images. Also I’m thinking about following, if I have time, the Mastermind’s challenges and post them here. So that way I have another regular feature, unlike most of my just random posts.
  • Dollarbie lamp at the store! Owly has been bugging me to make one for a friend’s freebie group, so I made a simple pendant. Nothing fancy, only in-world, not OnRez. See Blogroll for the SLURL to the shop. Since I’m not at home right now, I can’t post a pic, although I might post it when I get home.
  • I have decided to dj on Sunday for those who can’t make Friday’s Halloween Party. Music will be the same, just in different order. Costumes preferred. Major Lift
  • Still no update on Mercury. Need to get minutes from meeting. Will try to get back there and do some work.
  • For the Americans in the audience, yes I have at least one reader, please go and vote! Yes I know it has nothing to do with SL(tm), but still.
  • Saw one of my old good SL(tm) friends last night. Was really happy.
  • Got to get sunglasses for Adia for a quick photo. Perhaps find the right pose aswell. Awesome stuff at Cachet, all females need to check it out ad you will find some must haves. lol

So I don’t really have one topic to talk about in depth today, so I will be just posting about somethings that are going on.

 

  • I’m a regular dj at Major Lift, at HAzul, now. I play every other Sunday, so this coming Sunday will be Halloween part 2, 4-6 pm slt.
  • I want to do a Christmas/ Winter/Summer Holidays shopping post in the coming weeks. That should be fun as I get to go shopping. lol Look for that shortly after Thanksgiving, roughly Nov 27. I will do about five categories, like Best Gift under 500L$ and so on.
  • Mercury is coming along slowly. I feel as if I lost interest in building it and running it. I enjoy the building. I guess I just need some more motivation to get it done and running.
  • From now on I won’t be in-world mostly on Mondays and Wednesdays as I now get home at 6:30 and I need a nap since I start classes at 9, meaning I have to be up around 7:20. Although I will try to get on during the day for about an hour, depending on if anyone is on and if I thought about bringing my charger to school.

Okay, so I was browsing NWN, I came upon this post Help Design The City Of Yesterday’s Future Today.

It is all about creating the Vision of the 21st Century from a 20th Century viewpoint. Doesn’t it sound cool!? I’m thinking that this would be a good exercise in building and design. Ooo maybe I can get the HBlue team on board and do a group build, that would be killer.

While I would like to do something all cute and bubbly, I kinda want to do something for “The Wrong Side of the Tracks.” hehehe lol although doing something for Plasma too.

When I first looked at the page, I quickly thought of bubble ray guns for sale. Wouldn’t that be cool?! I’m a dork. lol Anyway I would make some cute ones and then some sick looking ones, but the only problem is how to script them because I have no scripting experience. 😦

Anyway here is the link to the official site:
