[09:54:34] Miranda Barrowstone: I heard something like that might come with cloud
[09:55:06] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): those waves you can surf on at beaches are just physical objects, and so is a boat, so I don't see why it wouldn't work
[09:55:09] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): i thought i saw a boat one time that had a water-skiing pose on the back, so would be possible
[09:55:39] Miranda Barrowstone: looks like few members today. maybe we try to fit in a Q&A

[10:03:15] Raks (rakshowes): Looks around......
[10:03:55] Miranda Barrowstone: Because we usually have good attendance � please take a moment to remove all extra attachments and HUDS. We�d like you to dress low lag. Big poofy hair and jewelry are big culprits, as are bubbles, script things, HUDS, and such. If we all cooperate, more merfolk can participate with less crashing. Thank you for your help with this.

[10:06:56] Miranda Barrowstone: Our priority here is helping newer mers � so please if you are new and with questions � please feel free to speak up. I do lead strongly because otherwise we tend to move to chaos � but we all try to remember the priority � mer helping mer be mer.

[10:21:05] Cynthia Maine: Tala, Lotus

[10:21:09] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir) takes the stick and chews on it.
[10:21:11] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw) Greets you
[10:21:11] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): >>>ooOO*Tala*OOoo<<<
[10:21:11] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): :D
[10:21:27] alice ann Straw�erry ?oo? (AliceRozen): Drachena ish like a swimming rainbow ?
[10:21:36] Raks (rakshowes): ouu - that old thing should not be chewed!
[10:21:43] Miranda Barrowstone: very pretty
[10:21:43] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): thanks :D
[10:21:54] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): First I'll apologize in advance for if I overload anyone with chat.  Kinda don't do this often.
[10:22:21] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): I should probably study journalism.
[10:22:25] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): anyway
[10:22:31] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): I'm interested in increasing our exposure, mostly on an individual level.  At the moment this is more a personal crusade, and not offical (though Cletic knows a little), but I'll happily work with the staff here.
[10:22:58] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): While mermaids of myth were reclusive, in SL we don't have to be.  There are

people out there that don't even know mers exist in SL.  I encounter them pretty often.
[10:23:16] Miranda Barrowstone: yep
[10:23:21] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): yeah :D
[10:23:27] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): Recently, I asked the owners of Elven Forest, a fairly popular fantasy hangout, to host a mer event, and they obliged.  Their

underwater area is mostly unused, but is set up as a venue with mer dances.  All of their dances this weekend will be in that

[10:23:58] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): This will help increase our exposure, because the mer presence in Elven Forest is little to none (but there is a mer area). Some folks might dig out their old tails and gain renewed interest in being a mer.  Others that don't have tails might become interested.  This is just small measure, but it will help.
[10:24:09] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): wow
[10:24:18] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): do they have a kiosk?
[10:24:38] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): Not at the moment, but I am working with Celtic on that.
[10:24:46] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): great :D
[10:24:51] Miranda Barrowstone: is it a kid friendly place?
[10:24:57] Cheryl Selene (CJ Tyrellium): sounds great
[10:25:24] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): Unfortunately no.  Alice asked earlier and I completely forgot to mention it is an adult sim.  SORRY
[10:25:31] Miranda Barrowstone: ok
[10:26:00] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): Another thing we can do is get out there in the SL world.  There are water sims that do have some traffic.  Boaters are scattered

around the Blake Sea, and many gather at Siren's Isle.  I've hung out there a bit for the past few days and had some fun.  Lots of

people initiated chat with me, and most of them indicated either they had never seen a mer before, or vary rarely.
[10:26:58] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): I also go to various beaches, mostly randomly, and hang out on the shore.  My AO has a crawl so I can walk around or swim if I want.  I get lost of IMs and chats.
[10:27:07] Raks (rakshowes): I do that all the time
[10:27:16] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): yay!
[10:27:36] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): This a simple and fun way to increase our presence and possibly encourage new mer.  It's more fun if you bring a friend, or many.
[10:27:45] Miranda Barrowstone: I'm trying to script a walking noob to carry me
[10:27:52] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): lol
[10:28:06] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): hehe
[10:28:08] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): And, yes, I know the Blake Sea is full of idiots, but there are also some nice, friendly people out there.  You can endure a little

nonsense for the greater good, right?
[10:28:15] Miranda Barrowstone: I might settle for buying a sedan
[10:28:29] Raks (rakshowes): Noobs walk ok - its the stairs they have trouble with
[10:28:42] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): lol
[10:28:42] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): ** lawdy lawdy**
[10:28:44] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): OK that's all I have.  Does anyone have a question?
[10:29:11] Miranda Barrowstone: anyone?
[10:29:13] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): Yesah
[10:29:25] Cheryl Selene (CJ Tyrellium): Bueller?
[10:29:30] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): I have one ... do you have contact with the admins on that sim
[10:29:31] Miranda Barrowstone: -=*giggles*=-
[10:29:36] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): *GIGGLES*
[10:29:40] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): Oh and don't forget our group swims
[10:29:46] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): yes I do
[10:29:49] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): Elven forest ?
[10:30:06] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): a lm to it please?
[10:30:18] Cheryl Selene (CJ Tyrellium): for me as wel plz
[10:30:31] Amyjoe Mayo: me to plz
[10:30:33] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): ok can you reach out and see if they would be interested in putting up an ad board and also if they want to participate in our Hunt event?
[10:30:48] Raks (rakshowes): Would it be possible to have an lm to the Mer area - Elven forest is big!
[10:30:51] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): They are a little cautious of change, which is why I wanted to do the events before asking them to do a kiosk.  I wanted to sort of smooth into it.
[10:30:53] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): tysm
[10:31:12] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): ok ?
[10:31:22] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): But Celtic has the info and will do her thing
[10:31:48] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): OK I will pass the lm out

[10:40:40] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): i use gaeline's tail
[10:40:46] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): I don't use maitreya, but I would suggest trying all the demos, and swimming with them, before you make a decision
[10:40:59] Cheryl Selene (CJ Tyrellium): good advice ty
[10:41:22] alice ann Straw�erry ?oo? (AliceRozen): yes
[10:41:34] alice ann Straw�erry ?oo? (AliceRozen): especially because not all tails work with the same ao
[10:41:45] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): And also know that bento tails will override old mer animations with their own, so old dances don't look bad.  5J, which is what I use, looks bad.
[10:42:00] Marion698: yup
[10:42:13] Raks (rakshowes): I use a classic mesh tail for dances
[10:42:16] Cheryl Selene (CJ Tyrellium): good to know
[10:42:25] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): yes I switch sometimes
[10:42:25] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): bento tails have a mind of there own lol
[10:42:54] Cheryl Selene (CJ Tyrellium): i have enough voices in my head without my tail chipping in lol

[10:46:24] Miranda Barrowstone: and my blender skills reek
[10:46:24] Yianni Piaggio: * winks to the greeting mer* Tala
[10:46:36] Miranda Barrowstone: tala
[10:46:41] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): tala
[10:47:14] Yianni Piaggio: * smiles at the echoes of "Tala'*
[10:47:16] Miranda Barrowstone: did that help Alice?
[10:47:22] Raks (rakshowes): Tala Yianni
[10:47:25] alice ann Straw�erry ?oo? (AliceRozen): Imma try! thank you

[10:48:10] Miranda Barrowstone: Ruso would you like the stick?
[10:48:33] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): sure i think i can cram this into 10 minutes...
[10:48:44] Miranda Barrowstone: ok come on down ?
[10:48:55] Raks (rakshowes): smiles
[10:49:02] Miranda Barrowstone: if not I can let Rusyou actuly have 12
[10:49:30] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): so bento tails and ao's and why things go sideways
[10:49:42] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): ?
[10:50:41] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): ok this is the SL skelton, taken from blender
[10:51:12] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): the new bento bones are highlighted in red, which requires new animation to move these
[10:51:42] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): most older tails like mine attach to the legs, shown in blue
[10:51:47] Raks (rakshowes): ouu
[10:51:57] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw) wishes she could see th board
[10:52:07] Cynthia Maine: cam around to the front
[10:52:12] Raks (rakshowes): She looks very thin.........
[10:52:15] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): can you make it full bright please?
[10:52:22] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): its a grey panel on both sides
[10:52:38] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): LAAAAAAAAAG!~  D:<<<<<<<
[10:52:43] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): thanks :)
[10:52:49] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): ok its clear now
[10:52:50] L�TU� DeLaMer (Pema Snowpaw): haha
[10:53:18] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): the one issue with the loreli tail is while it has a AO bult in, onl only moves the red bones
[10:53:41] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): so you still need a mer ao to move you upper body
[10:53:47] Raks (rakshowes): mm
[10:54:04] Marion698: yeah thats the problem
[10:54:10] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): great point
[10:54:12] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): as your legs are alpha'd out anyways, you wont see the lower animations
[10:55:29] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): so will be hit and miss with other ao's to avoid looking weird
[10:55:31] Raks (rakshowes): Why does his red bone stick out so much?
[10:55:49] Miranda Barrowstone: its a tail not what yer thinking
[10:55:56] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): thats just the sheleton for rigging to,
[10:56:08] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): it's used as a tail, and needs more bones for smooth animation
[10:56:20] Yianni Piaggio: i hope im doing this right...
[10:56:24] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): otherwise it sould bend like your knees
[10:57:28] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): the tail was more desigend in bento for t hings like neko tails etc so could be smmother animated
[10:57:28] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): a mer is born
[10:57:59] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): is why that has 6 joints in it to allow smmother movement
[10:58:06] Raks (rakshowes): Gets distracted from the bone discussion.......
[10:58:12] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): the legs only have 3
[11:00:56] Rusozee Bandalora (bioskyline): so thats bento simplfied, and hope it helps when you wonder why only half your body moves
[11:01:16] ???????? (Drachena Haefnir): thank you
