A few weeks ago, tired of all the Drama on the Forums, I decided to stop posting to any of the discussion threads. A few things had sickened me… 1stly that idiotic Nazi debate in which some residents even went so far as to form a petition, shortly after that I watched, again disgusted, as a Long term resident, was lambasted for trying to create an informational Blog. Thankfully he went ahead with his idea & you can find that link under the handy links ;) I also relented & posted in some forum discussions ;)
You hear all of the time of how new residents coming over from SL do not feel welcomed. I find that hard to believe as despite all the drama that gets witnessed on the forums, the community as a whole is very welcoming to all. Though I have to say that any Merchants coming over from SL need to come here as though they are Brand New, which means they need to advertise & participate & not just expect that their name alone will sell their goods. It doesn’t work that way in InWorldz. Most of us support those who are active within the grid, your name won’t mean diddly squat to me if I am not seeing any advertising. I left SL over 5yrs ago, so most of those coming now I have never heard of.
You need to get involved with things going on, I don’t mean go to every event. I & most creators are stuck on their platforms & do not socialise, that is not why I am here.. I am here to create, but what I do, do, is advertise, I get involved with other things like the Brilliant #Hashtag #InWorldz Twitter campaign.
Hard to believe that a few of those same residents actually sickened me a few weeks before with their antics on the Forums
I think sometimes people just do not think before they post, or perhaps their nationality makes it harder for them to put into words what they are trying to say so that they come across as being aggressive…
The Truth is… The InWorldz Community is probably one of the best around & I am glad to be a part of it
See you around the grid, if I ever get off my platform that is ;)
