Logins are shut down to SL right now, which totally sucks because there was a whole bunch of free t-shirts I saw on Free*Style that I wanted to go pick up. It IS a Friday, so I guess I shouldn't be too surprised. :) I'm not going to run around screaming and tearing my hair out like SOME PEOPLE are doing. I think that may be the most amusing part of the whole "Logins down!" thing. Reading the comments by the crazy people.
So I've been reading a lot of things lately from people who want to help newbies. The problem is, they don't seem to have any idea HOW to do it other than flooding them with notecards, landmarks, and freebies. You can't do that. You can't give them a notecard on how to open a box when they don't know how to open a notecard. :) And it's cool that people WANT to help. We just have to realize that not everyone is on the same level of experience. Cen and I know a woman and she's "lost" her bald base several times. We've never been sure how. All we know is that when she asks for help, usually she's got brown Ruth hair again. LOL
Helping newbies = Good.
Helping newbies by holding their hand and showing them step by step what to do = Even better.
Hm. Logins still down. Well, ok then. To give you all something else to watch, check out this link.
Sn4tchbuckl3r's Second Chance
I don't know how many of you are Digg fanatics like I am, but I came across this series called You Suck At Photoshop on Digg a while back and as funny as the videos were, they were also kind of helpful. But in the last Photoshop video, the host of the series "disappeared." So in another video, his guild buddies were talking and Sn4tchbuckl3r wanted to give him a tribute. But then Sn4tchbuckl3r disbanded the guild and went to a game called Peopleburg. Today's video shows his arrival in Peopleburg. I almost fell off the chair laughing. :)
I just got a group notice to a club I've never been to before, so I'm guessing SL is back up. LOL
