[10:03] Celtic Infinity cheers for Miranda
[10:03] Miranda Barrowstone: Safe Waters Foundation (SWF) is a not-for-profit group supporting the development of harmony and safety for merfolk and aquatics of Second Life, We bring together designers, retailers, sims, merrow, mermen, mermaids, siren, aquatics and lovers of same.
[10:03] Miranda Barrowstone: ?
[10:04] 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.
[10:04] Miranda Barrowstone: People seem to arrive late and depart early. Please don�t be offended but as leader I will try to keep the meeting going. We don�t repeat things for latecomers � a log is posted on our blog after the meeting. This is not a place for public debate � this is a helpful place. Mer helping mer be mer!
[10:05] Miranda Barrowstone: To get all the information out there in our limited time � we use an imaginary talking stick. Ask for it in IM when you have a new topic to introduce and I�ll call on you in turn. If you have been passed the talking stick, please move to center stage and share a brief announcement/question/topic.
[10:05] Marion698: tala munin:)
[10:05] Celtic Infinity: Tala, Munin :)
[10:05] Miranda Barrowstone: tala
[10:05] Turtle: Tala, friend
[10:05] Miranda Barrowstone: Some discussion is great � but please quickly offer to give a notecard or landmark if people will IM you (that�s why we ask you to move to center) so that others will have a turn. When you have finished please pass the imaginary talking stick back to me.
[10:06] Munin (Darm Yaffle): Tala everyone
[10:06] Turtle: Tala!
[10:06] 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.
[10:06] Miranda Barrowstone: So, how was your week Merfolk?
[10:06] Celtic Infinity: It was long and challenging, but thankfully over. How was yours Miranda?
