A Thriving Community!

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.

Now I say the community is thriving because it is & if you really want to see how a community pulls together then just view what occurred when a long time resident put out a plea for some RL help

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 😉

  1. It really is thriving 😀 — I have met so many new people over the past few weeks.. I went to an event the other day where I made ten new friends AND saw about 20 Id never met before. I go to malls that arent empty, stores that have other avis, and really it just feels so good. Ive stopped reading the forums. And if I do it will be to bump up a thread that has something positive in it! Good post 🙂

  2. It is odd to read this. I tend to agree, but I sure would like to see IW get out of Beta some time. I am a 4 year resident and I think I expected too much. I know I have ‘peaked’ and now find it difficult to maintain interest let alone get ideas anymore. To a large degree the forums were responsible. I no longer go to them and find them dangerous and just plain toxic.

    • I go through stages of disinterest myself, Ferrator, so i do understand. It has been over 5yrs for me, I don’t think it really matters much that were still in beta, surely that just means they are still working to perfect it? Anyway feels a whole lot better than other places do. As for the Forums… well, I wouldn’t go so far as to say they are toxic, even though at times they do get that way & admittedly had the founders decided to close general, this last time around, i would not have objected as they are the 1st face of Inworldz to many & some must view & think… no way i am going there!
