Before we delve into secrets…
• If you hook up with a crazy in SL, it is not our responsibility to help you deal with that. If it becomes a RL issue contact law enforcement.
• Trust no one. If you tell people your laundry they will air it for you.
• Secret submissions are anonymous. We don’t know if your crazy ex or your abuela submitted them.
• Make your secrets legible.
• Do not contact us just to threaten us, especially with e-lawyers. We’ve been doing this for 12+ years. You are not the first nor will you be the last.
• Lastly, if the material submitted here triggers you, please get help. If the materials submitted here make you suicidal please see the suicide hotline numbers posted. They are there to help.
I could be wrong, but I think #4 is a response or continuation to last week’s #3. Same weirdo type.
#2 You need anger management.
You can derender everyone.
#4 how SAD does one get in life. Judging by your ‘secret’, EXTREMELY.
Can I just point out… when he ‘does’ your pixels’, you DO realise it’s just pixels, right? Right???????
Are you new to SL?
obviously I am
lets fuck lourdes pixels flesh same thang
lol go ahead its only pixels
My point is that anyone that has been in SL more than a hot minute knows how it works. Pixel sex is serious business for those involved. There has been more scandal and drama than a little bit behind who hopped on the pink pose ball.
I’m on SL since 2004 sweetie and I have news for you ‘it’s only pixels’. Really and utterly.
And yet you are still a newb and lack basic reading comprehension.
Yes its only pixels to you, me and maybe tons of other people. What what you think doesn’t matter. To the people engaged in the activity its not just pixels. Were you not around for the grand drama of incest in the family community? The father and son who started a relationship on alts? If it were just pixels to them then we wouldn’t have had 3 weeks of drama behind it.
It doesn’t change the FACT that it’s PIXELS fucking each other. FACT. Pixels, NOT people.
So tell us. What happened to you that you are on this crusade now to convince yourself and everyone its just pixels?
Did you get you wittle feelings heart by hopping on the pose ball with the wrong person(s)? Show us on the dolly where they hurt you.
You got it nailed Lourdes 🙂 …
Two people placing their avatars on pose balls and leaving them go at it while they go off and have a cup of tea could be considered mundane pixel sex. However, use voice, cam or even just textual stimulation to arouse eachother and you invoke sexual reactions.
Now I don’t know how you’re put together Angermanagement poster but I’ll put hard cash that nobody on this site will put their hands up to ever having had a pixelated orgasm lol
No crusade, No hurt. Just stating facts for all the deluded morons gracing us with their presence. FACTS. Try them. You might like them.
deluded morons? Doesn’t sound like you’re on a crusade, definitely not. This is serious business for you it seems. But lets not confuse fact with truth. Know that your truth isn’t everyone elses truth. No matter how much you crusade to convert the deluded morons.
Thanks for the entertainment.
Let’s not forget about people using copyrighted characters for items. HyperboleandaHalf owns the rights to the Alot monster and yet someone was selling Alot monsters in a Gacha Event. Just saw the other day another “designer” selling Pusheen the cat plushes. Don’t think they had the rights to those either. It’s pretty simple – if you found it on the internet, you don’t have rights to it.
Links to examples stated – Alot http://thearcadesl.com/shopping-guides/september-2014/breno_0914/ http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/2010/04/alot-is-better-than-you-at-everything.html
Pusheen – http://seraphimsl.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/WT02012015PURPLETS.jpg http://www.pusheen.com/
errr wrong sorry, a lot of things can’t be copyrighted so suck it up prinicess. If someone wants to copy a skirt, a chair a sofa a house or a dress they can.
@Sorry “If someone wants to copy a skirt, a chair a sofa a house or a dress they can.”
To an extent they can, with limitations. Refer to my lengthy post above where I clarify the law in easy to understand language.
A chair, sofa, or dress can be recreated because they are useful concepts and can not be copyrighted. ART however, can be copyrighted and is therefore a different ball game.
The links that were given to you (“Pusheen – http://seraphimsl.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/WT02012015PURPLETS.jpg http://www.pusheen.com/“) is a perfect example. I am assuming that “pusheen” is the original creation. The creator of that very distinctive cat would own the copyright. Anyone who reproduces the work without consent from the copyright holder is committing copyright infringement.
Yes I agree with you. But I was referring to a more generic piece of furniture not art. For example the hermes chair copied over and over. Or an A Line skirt or a pump shoe. I don’t get why people are so upset about bringing RL into SL.
Actually, it’s called intellectual property in most of those cases, prinicess [sic].
You’re still wrong.
no one cares
Lourdes, no boobieproblemsecret this week? ; )
Nope. Only one wasn’t published and they know why.
To Brie: It was Dixxie.
Really? I’m not shocked. He’s an ass.
dixxie is a man
This weeks secrets are so boring. I would have expected with the crashing of the olrich empire last week there would at least be something about that. As for the writer of the scripts secret someone obviously pissed on your wheeties to get so worked up and abusive over something so trivial.
Here’s hoping for better next week.
What happened to Olrich Estates then? I haven’t seen anything. Oooh, scandal!
thats a SL tv special about the downfall of a 48 sim empire and that she hasnt given any money back.
Still no refunds on rent. We were told to submit nc in with our info so they could get our refunds sent and no one has yet to receive anything. Last I heard we would get it by Feb 2. Maybe they meant Feb 2 2016 lol just saying.
Do you think that they left SL due to the faking of their RL and whatnot? I’m surprised the vigilantes who exposed her earlier aren’t posting about that either. Strange.
#7 – *you’re
#1. Maybe I am missing the point here because I have no f-ing clue who made those hairs or blogged them or whatever you’re getting at, but those hairs are kinda similar but not even close to the same. And how long did you spend searching for that June 2012 image? I suspect you might need a life…
#2. I get your point, but honestly do yourself a favor and save up and get a better computer. I did, and I can even move easily around C88 when it’s busy. You’re not going to change these people with a secret and a lot of the offenders don’t even know about secrets.
#4. No one cares.
#6. I feel you have punished this person and the rest of us. Please kindly shut up now. 🙂
#7. You’re*!!!!!!! You can’t zing anyone with a scathing secret if you can’t get your grammar right! xo
That is all.
I agree with the above statement. You can kindly get off my site if you don’t like Brie’s posts. I love them. I look forward to seeing what she’s made every week. She brings light wherever she is. So kindly, kiss it.
Brie: KEEP ON KEEPING ON!
I think you can “kindly” shut up if you insult someone who is trying to bring a little light into this vicious place. 🙂
Oh come on now! Brie isn’t going to stop because I dislike her posts! I know that. You know that. Everyone knows that. It’s just my opinion, and if you don’t want opinions/thoughts/comments why do you even have a comments section?
It’s just interesting that she’s a ray of sunshine posting her love and good tidings week after week, and then suddenly this week it’s BAM!!! All these positive posts were intended to show up the person that was so mean to her once upon a time.
I will do this however, I will not read Brie’s posts (which I had stopped a long time ago but broke my rule this week) and I won’t comment on them either.
3) I agree. I am sick and tired of seeing products copied from google images and brought into SL. There are so many cases of it.
However, if you make original, ORIGINAL, you’re pushed to the curb and ignored. It’s all about having the right friends in SL.
Yes. I used to own a shop in SL but got bullied out of it.
If the mesh is good, it will sell, stop giving a fuck what the people of plurk think about copyright images, because the rest of SL, they don’t care one bit.
You all are just too obsessed with little things, what is so wrong about using a famous portrait or painting in a frame inworld, not every designer is a painter, an artist, a musician, magician, fashion designer or whatever more. Do you know how hard it is to work with 3d, keep up with updates and news that shows up every week, month, year? You must simply understand that we have a life behind the screen and it is already hard enough to do all that we do and maintain our quality, we try, I swear to you that we really try (serious designers), but some times in order to give our best to you we can’t think of e-v-e-r-y single thing. So please, stop being so harsh on us. Thank you
Crazy concept, I know – but have you considered reaching out inworld for artists and painters, etc?
There are a large amount of active artists and creative types in SL who would be happy to be paid for their work, so you can sell original artwork without infringing copyright.
I’m pretty sure most of the sl users who are not on plurk or heard of sl secrets buy clothing/other items without a thought about copied images…they just dont know. Before plurk and virtual-secrets, I had no idea either, I just bought what I wanted to buy because I liked them.
They know, they just don’t care. Becase OMG SUPER AWESOME SAILOR MOON COSTUMES or SWEET GOOGLY MOOGLY LOOKIT THEM NIKES!
They buy it because the don’t know or care about copy right, they just want the item now to look awesome.
What bothers me is like #3, what everyone picks and chooses to get up in arms about is amazing. They’ll get their undies in a bunch over a fabric texture or piece of art stolen off google, but give zero fucks about full items, outfits, accerssories being built in SL from RL designs. Feeling that since they meshed it it’s legal. Sorry, but no.
The circle jerk of designers beating eachother off because they have to make themselves feel better for copying soemthing already imagined instead of using their minds and making something new is sad.
I’m not talking about something moderately inspired by, or using a reference either, I mean I see a thing and copy said thing right down to the last detail.
But hey, who gives a fuck if it lines their pockets right?
“But give zero fucks about full items, outfits, accerssories being built in SL from RL designs. Feeling that since they meshed it it’s legal. Sorry, but no. ” Actually, it is legal. Clothing designs can not be copyrighted. They are considered “useful” and are fair game. A content creator who chooses to recreate a clothing design in Second Life is not treading on illegal grounds. Where it becomes illegal is when and if said creator decides to (1) Apply trademarks they do not own (2) Introduce texture, images, etc they do not have the legal right to source from (3) Infringe on a company’s trade dress. Examples of #1-3: (1)Say they are making a Nike shoe design. They can legally recreate the shoe design, but the moment they stamp on a Nike logo, or use any reference to Nike in order to sell that shoe, it is trademark infringement, and therefore illegal. a) It is legal to recreate a shoe that, in appearance, looks like a Nike design. b) It is ILLEGAL to recreate a shoe that, in appearance, looks like a Nike design AND uses the Nike logo or any references to Nike. (2) I don’t care how many people do this and how acceptable this is in the SL community. LEGALLY speaking, it is illegal to grab images you do not own the legal right to use, and source from them. Yea grabbing a texture swatch from Google really isn’t a big deal but if you have not received consent from the copyright holder of that image, LEGALLY speaking, it is illegal to take and use. There are websites that specialize in images that are free to use commercially. A popular one is cgtextures.com or 3d.sk (3) When recreating items that already exist in RL, there are also… Read more »
you are missing the point, you wrote a dissertation, but no one cares (except the IP Police on plurk)
Really you were bullied so horribly that you no longer have a shop? What was the shop name and why did the people bully you so badly? Please elaborate.
Her shop was designer Prims / Elle crescendo. She says this every week. But her blog tells a different story. She couldn’t keep up with customer service and from what it looks like she realized she $couldn’t do mesh.
Every goddamm week she posts here.
well there’s a lie right there, it seems Designer Prims did a few meshes before closing down.
It’s not Elle that was posted by charlotte bartlett pretending to be Elle. She does it all the time she likes to be the victim and you fangirls go nuts for it.
Hysterical. Now it is somebody else posting as you Elle? So far we have had every single lie you can imagine since you got stalking and trying to hurt some of the nicest creators on the grid.
Aren’t you embarrassed as us regulars all know?
What next more fake names. You are ridiculous and raging because you got outed. You mad Elle?
You know jack, you just think you do and I let you believe that because it suits me
@ a pissed of designer / Elle Cresendo. I don’t get it and why are you making Secrets about you each week dragging your lame crap here? You were exposed what last week with your Flickr as Notta lot stealing copyright and posting comment after comment like a deranged stalker? To crawl back from that is just cringe worthy.
Even before that there were comment on here showing you harassing people. Your flickr is gone now did Yahoo ban you? Or did you freak out at being caught publicly for being a spiteful crazy ass?
I am sure they have free counseling for people like you where you live if you can’t afford to get help for your issues. You may want to sign up as it might help your obsessive hatred behavior. Or not, stay a weirdo, you only hurt yourself and give us entertainment at the end of the day. Shrugs.
@ Sunshine, who are you, what’s your SLname, your main that is, not one of your alts or your little miniture fairies, your MAIN SL account name? You seem to have an awful lot to say for yourself, how about backing it up.
@who areyou – I know who Sunshine is and she’s one of the most astute and amazing women on the grid. But fear not, I’m sure she will give you her real name and phone number for psycho-bitches like you to stalk her.
