After a pretty much not great night, I'm feeling tons better today. Yay!
I realized that there are people on my friends list that I haven't talked to in a while, even though they were really nice to me when I was first starting out. I really need to make the effort to at least say hello once in a while. I am really bad about messaging people first, though. There are actually very few people that I will IM first just to say hello.
Cen brought this topic up to me a couple of days ago and I've been thinking about it. Permissions on items. With Valentine's Day rapidly approaching, there will be a lot of people running around trying to find gifts. I realize that it's easy to go to SLX or OnRez and send something as a gift, but what if you find something you want to buy that isn't on those sites? How do you go about giving a gift when it's not transferable?
I understand that sometimes people make whole outfits and need things to be copyable so they can put in different folders. And prim pieces should probably be copyable in case you need to adjust them. And most designers definitely don't want to put full permissions on their items because that leads to stealing. But why can't you have the OPTION of gifting?
When I went to purchase my eyes from Miriel, from the vendor I was able to choose what I wanted my eyes to be - copy or transfer. I chose the transfer option because I don't make outfits and if at some point I find eyes I like better or I change my whole look or something, it would be nice to know that I can give someone these lovely eyes.
Another store that does this right is Hexed, one of my most favorite stores to break my $5L budget in. [Was that even grammatically correct?]
When I went looking for good boots to purchase, I ended up getting 2 pairs from here. A big reason for this? The demos! But check it out. There are options! This is so good! Designer Kya Eliot even gives you the option of doing this with most of her clothing.
I've never met her, but I'm guessing she's pretty cool because she gives the option for this. :)
Options. Such a good thing. :)
Oh, and check it out. I got a lucky chair outfit at Hexed.
Love lucky chairs. lol
I'm kind of sleepy still, so I think I'm going to go take a tiny nap.
