the word bully has been tossed around a few times, you can’t be be bullied on the internet, you hold the power. You have the ability to delete, mute, un-follow, and ignore.
noun: bully; plural noun: bullies
1. a person who uses strength or power to harm or intimidate those who are weaker.
Ok so a month ago I bought the Fatpack Addams Lixie Super Skinny Jean (Ripped and None Ripped Versions) from Kustom9. I paid the full price. So what a shocker to find out today that the (not so old) Fatpack is being sold for half price … Is that fair? I don’t think so!
Also I see some other items like Fatpack shoes at Reign on the MM board that I have paid full price for not so long ago … Why are these designers doing this?
Should we just wait for them to put their stuff on MM boards or sell it at half price and not support them at events?
I don’t mind paying to be in a group if it is worth my while. Some shops/designers just never give anything back to their loyal group members. People please we only have so many group space and if you are not going to show us some loving we will find is somewhere else!
Oh and I totally agree with “Too many events over saturating the market. “. Feels like we getting the bad end of mass production!
Designers in the real world do this all the time. You go to Coach and buy a $300 purse. Two months later that same purse is at a Coach outlet for 70% off the original price.
If something doesn’t sell well, it gets marked down. If something is in high demand, there are often special prices from time to time.
There is nothing to be mad about really. The end game is always to sell the product, whether at full price or discounted. Getting mad about $1.50 on a game is kinda sad.
Have you ever shopped in the real world. You know, bought clothing? Food? toilet paper? If so do you whine like this at every sale. Omg how dare the supermarket/drug store have that toilet paper on sale after you paid full price.
Or some article of clothing or shoes go on sale after you bought it.
SL is no different.
Lol I remember working retail and people would bring clothing they bought last week before the sale and request you give them the discounted price. Your comment made me think about this and sadly people do complain like this.
I agree but I’ve never seen something I bought that were on sale only a month after. If that was the case we would have all waited for the sales …
I’m sorry your pseudo psychology is not impressing me. You are continuing to twist, judge and manipulate now you’re trying to disguise it.. I promise you I couldn’t give less of a shit if I tried. You are all just entertainment
My goodness, your mother must be so proud of how well she brought you up.
You make me shudder if I can be so blunt.
Anyway, the drama lama pretend crap failed.
That’s a very predictable response from you. Do you think trying insult family would provoke a response from me lol armature. I don’t understand your last sentence at all and don’t care
I don’t agree with Delome. It’s far more simple.
You are just a crap human being.
Thanks for again exposing what a shit heel you are.
#3.] Honestly, I agree. Not like this is some super popular or drama fueled secret. But she annoys the hell out of me. Nice to see I’m not the only one.
To bad so much is spelled wrong.. whoops…spellcheck next time maybe?
Somebody has a red face. Nobody panic she will be home from work soon and use all her ip addresses to downvote us all.
Won’t matter as she cant delete her comments above, kinda embarrasing to have this preserved forever.
Yuk that’s a bit creepy if I didn’t know for fact you’re bluffing I’d be contacting authoritiies on account of your stalking.
I don’t want to delete a thing and you may rest peacefully knowing for sure I am not even slightly embarrassed. Nobody actually gives a shit what’s said here don’t you know. Or do you believe anonymous comments on a blog about a virtual world nobody cares about are important in the real world. I’m sorry for you pilater
You didn’t answer my question miss caught lying publicly about an event and creator on a blog.
When did you hear this pretend conversation?
Waits for an answer too.
That’s not my name I don’t identify with it and therfore won’t be responding
True I think your name is “got caught in a huge lie publically”.
I am sure you could use that if that helps?
And of COURSE you couldn’t answer the question you were already caught out with a horrific lie (twice) in an attempt to damage an innocent creator and an event publicly.
There wasn’t much way back from that at that point so I accept you not being able to answer.
Oh calm yourself it’s hardly “horrific”. Babies washed up dead on beaches is horrific. Comments here not so much.
Someone was talking we heard them, beit voice or however they were talkingin or whatever they used, tis not a lie. Don’t know the time or date or even the day of the week, it was a while back.
Why are you so upset, no names were named, this event is bashed on here all the time, why you getting so upset?
Why you taking it so personal, what’s your beef, OMG was it YOU we overheard
I normally keep pretty quiet on this site and have been here from the start and the old days, it’s generally harmless stuff.
Reading this thread and seeing somebody unravel and show what looks like behavior driven from ASPD is incredibly sobering for me.
I remember from earlier in the year, this was the same girl who set up the flickr account to torment and was exposed as a long time stalker.
Please get help.
Ah yes I know who you are I should have picked it up. God you have many alts don’t you
Guess what that makes you A BULLY!!!
Oh you’re a shrink you know me, have met me and are Qualified to diagnose me based on a post in a blog? Wow, just wow.
Really what happens here is you read what you want to read and decide how you want to portray someone and then you twist the fuck out of every thing they say to entice drama. Then you sit back in your ivory tower and point at the bad people.
I actually feel sorry for you at this point. You can take my advise or not, but I hope it does help you.
Nobody has twisted a word on here you have said.
Every word you typed is your own, so own what you did and why you post on this this site on a regular basis and the agenda you display here.
You got caught not doing something very nice and I can imagine that’s uncomfortable and in the bluster now you are trying to direct this into other drama so you can deflect what you did. Perhaps you are have a shitty time or are mad at somebody I really don’t know. But I know it’s not worth embarrassing yourself on a website over whatever the issue is.
Have some emotional maturity and understand what is healthy and what is really not in terms of your behavior and have compassion for people. I am really trying to have some for you after what you typed over the past months here. Is it actually worth it, I can’t imagine this makes you happy.
Nobody is perfect, you crossed a line yes, but try and learn from it perhaps and realize that trying to harm people in all honesty on a drama website, well that only reflects on you and your need for whatever drives you to do it in the first place.
You wrote about that “nobody actually gives a shit what’s said here”. I suspect you do care and do give a shit, it’s the reason week after week you try and keep bringing up the same agendas. It’s not exactly normal healthy behavior but that’s between you and yourself, not us.
Be well, be kind and take care.
Ok crazy lady, you just compared your bullshit to a dead child you are a vile individual with behavior like that.
I rest my case.
You don’t have a case, it wasn’t a comparison it was a fact to give you some perspective on how dramatic your reaction is to something said on a blog that in the scheme of things just doesn’t matter. But keep twisting the other sharks are biting
The Dress Dead Dollz gifted is Vesper BROWN. The black one was for sale at Shiny Shabby. If you are color blind please refrain from making non-intelligent posts.
It was super cool of you to offer anything as a gift, and you certainly shouldn’t be having nasty secrets made about you for doing so.
So number 2. Ya know, slut shaming, it’s so 20th century. I don’t care if she sucks pixel cock and/or licks mesh pussy. But gee, if her avatar looks anything like that—? YUCK!
to number 1) Shiny Shabby is one of the worst events for designers, most have had their worst sales to date at that event. Though the amount of work that goes into making the items is the same, so the designer probably felt like her item did not reach a wide crowd because of shiny shabby’s awful management so they decided to at the very least offer the item as a gift.
I think it was very nice of them.
Too many events with bad raps now. I don’t go to collabor88 anymore. I overheard on voice a certain house designer having a nasty go at someone over placement of a site, house designer felt she was entitled to a better spot because she said she’d been designing for the platform near on 10yrs it got really nasty I steer clear of that sort of behavior. I was shocked brits are usually so polite
Which designer? None of them use Voice at those events so what are you talking about?
The public aren’t there when designers set up they close the sim. I call bullshit. It’s just a attempt to bad mouth another event in SL. Somebody seems salty.
Nup i heard it so did my friend, it was after the event had started, said designer was wanting to move. It was like a kid having a tanty. She believed she should have another spot because her house was in “higher demand “. Just because you don’t believe it doesn’t make it not true I was there I heard it you were not. As a result I can’t be bothered with event, end of.
You are talking crap. They restart the sim and there are no designers there when it opens. Why don’t you post the chat logs to prove me wrong?
Pilaters, I don’t claim to be all that SL savvy these days, but when someone says that they overheard something on voice it normally implies there wouldn’t be any chat logs to copy and paste here. Could be wrong…
Somebody just caught lying again @ Not Bothered AKA Whatever AKA Whateves AKA Elle Cresendro.
Sorry I am sick of this idiot trying to bully people. What a douche.
It hasn’t been enabled for over 3 years, so when exactly did you hear this pretend conversation?
Keep lying, it just really illuminates your character and brings only kindness from the rest of us to those who you try to hurt.
Huh? I’m not whateves or any one else, what an odd thing to say. You don’t know who I am and have no way of knowing so cut those lies out.
And when my friend and me were there voice WAS enabled. Not sure if you know this but it can be enabled and unabled you know, sheesh the ignorance
That’s why I wrote the voice bit above, Collabor88 doesn’t have it enabled so it was pretty obvious she was lying from the get-go. I just found it funny how she doubled down on it not realizing people already knew she had tripped herself up.
Holy cow! LMAO
That’s really outrageous to the creator and event she just tried to drag down. At least it has exposed her AGAIN on here for behavior that reeks of bullying.
Why are they having such bad sales? I have heard other events are the same too, are we finally moving on from them (I hope so)
I wonder if the poor sales are a result of how lag-tacular that setup is? I tried 5 times to shop there for the first round and gave up. Even with my graphics settings as low as they can go, I just couldn’t stop crashing. They need to simplify that decor considerably…
I think the worst event for lag is The Arcade. They used to have more sims you could be on so you could shop from viewing platforms but now they have a homestead I think and it’s a cheap sim that always crashes me. Considering the Designers pay 500,000 Linden collectively (or more like 700,000 Linden (USD 2800) with advertising and all that jazz) per round you would think they would have gotten 2 full prim sims. That would still leave the organizers with over 1000 USD profit a round!
[redacted at the request of the commenter – see below]
I am contacting you now. IM me in world and I will be more than happy to talk to you.
APOLOGY to Kiddo Oh and Dead Dollz and WITHDRAWAL of COMMENT I would like to publicly apologise to Kiddo Oh and her Dead Dollz label for my comments of October 11, 2015 at 8:28 pm and withdraw my comment, especially the second and third paragraphs. The reason for this are: I did not conduct a full search of my inventory for they dress in question prior to my statement a replacement was never sent. It was suggested to me I should do a full inventory search using the name of the dress exactly as used by Kiddo Oh on the Dead Dollzs vendor and dress. When I did this search I found that Kiddo Oh had sent my a replacement dress immediately after she had received my email and days before I made my comment here. The only person at fault is myself for not checking correctly and this is why I am withdrawing my comment and making this public apology. My October 11 comment was the first and only comment I shall make on this site as after reading back for a few months it is clear a number of people making comments are simply using the site to conduct personal attacks on others or to drag some private dispute before the public. Before anyone thinks or says I am withdrawing my comment and making this public apology because of what Kiddo Oh said to me I would like to say I have not been in SL for three days nor checked my IM’s to email and al I know about Kiddo Oh contacting me is her comment which I read when went here to make my apology. As to the Vesper Dress Black sold at Shiny Shabby and the Vesper Dress Brown available as a Group Gift, I… Read more »
I think it’s pretty awesome when people admit they made mistakes and apologize. It doesn’t matter if it’s anonymous here, it is the fact that they contacted the creator/creators themselves under their name and discussed it with them that matters.
It’s become quite apparent in dealing with many people that apologizing or admitting you were wrong or even changing your opinion because you a) did research or b) had a discussion and someone swayed you makes you weak or stupid. I don’t get that, that’s not how the adult world works.
I’ve modified the comment they wish to withdrawl. I’m late, but I’m dealing with a big project so I don’t want to deal with anything technology related and haven’t checked the site.
I hope that is okay with you and am glad your matter got settled.
Anonymous apology LMAO USELESS
AltMuch in you comment October 15, 2015 at 5:52 am you say – Anonymous apology LMAO USELESS.
You seem to think that because I posted under the pseudonym – still waiting – my apology is useless. However as Kiddo Oh has already said I also contacted her in world and apologised to her one to one.
What does seem odd for someone who says comments made using a pseudonym are quote “useless” is the fact you posted that comment under the name AltMuch.
Unless your avatar is called “AltMuch” by your own statement your words are useless, actually they have returned to bite you on the bum.
She apologized in person to me, which is what really matters. YOU do not need to be given further information to be able to better bully people.
Creators have been putting exclusive colors of items as gifts for years, not really news or rude at all. Free dress is a free dress.
Yes but normally the group gift is released at the same time as the full price version and functions as a wearable demo?
If you loved the dress enough to pay full price for it, you’d probably just be happy to get it in another colourway for free. But sales events work because people like to think they’re getting a bargain. If they pay for something which is given away a few days later, that’s kind of the opposite of a bargain. It’s not ethically wrong so much as commercially naive, because making your customers feel stupid is rarely good for business.
But I don’t believe Shiny Shabby is a bargain or discount event. I’m pretty sure most items are sold their at full price.
Maybe the dress was super popular and she got a lot of requests for it in brown. If that is the case, wouldn’t it be admirable for her to offer that requested color for free instead of saying “Hey, it’s in brown! Come buy it! I wan your money!”?
Apparently I am a disgruntled blog manager that Is only good for sucking pixel dick. I assume that’s for me.
For my haters that decided to make drama into an SL Secret: I put more work into the blogs I manage then any other blog manager I know. So If all I am good for is sucking pixel dick then please excuse the wide array of stores that respect me and thank me regularly for my hard work. Salty bitches talking shit about me for no reason and going too far. Why you mad? Is it because your stores fail on a regular basis while the stores I manage continue to climb the SL Fame train? Work harder.
This weekend I’ve been called Fake, Bitch, Liar, Whore, Cunt and a long list of other names. And none of the drama involves me. So plllleeaasseee! continue to bring attention to my fabulous self. Assholes.
Wait, are you telling us that there are MULTIPLE people running around SL calling themselves ‘blog managers’ because they think it sounds better than ‘blogger’?
Because sorry but that’s hilarious.
No bitch, I’m actually the blog manager for several stores as well as run a successful blog. But carry on reading only what you want to read out of my reply.
I am wondering why my secrets are never published here?
Must be because Lourdes is best friends with a Canadian creator.
His stuff is so terrible made, that it feels like it’s 2006 all over again.
Maybe you didn’t read the size requirements.
The size requirements are ignored. Seem plenty of odd sized ones lately.
It doesn’t upload if it doesn’t at least meet the requirements it can be smaller or rectangular but has to least be in that ballpark. You should try it sometime before you assume.
yeah it’s gotta be at least 5″ or it’s just no fun. Thickness counts for a lot, but at least average length is necessary. Six or seven inches is even better, unless it’s your first go at things ever. In which case, smaller is not all that bad. Size sometimes matters.
Perhaps because you did not submit one about a Canadian creator. Which is a shame really they provide good entertainment value.
Seriously sl secrets. Your website has gone to shit. It has gone from something juicy to just eye rolling. Wheres the good stuff? Hell make something up or something!
250L. Approximately 1 USD. All this aggravation over one fucking dollar!
Yea, it is, because you just got it in ANOTHER color. So essentially you got 2 dresses for the price of one.
The dress was given as a gift in a color that wasn’t available for sale. So, again, if you already bought it in another color, you can go ahead and get it in brown for free and now you have two options.
I don’t honestly see how anyone can complain about it. They are offering customers something *free* that they can add to their collection. If she had sold it in brown at the event to begin with, would you have bought in brown? Yes? Ok, so think of it as you paid for the brown one and got black for free. Would you not have purchased brown? Then, hey you got a free dress in brown. Awesome.
I mean…it’s 250L we’re talking about. You guys really want to shit on a designer for offering a free gift? This just doesn’t make any sense, lol.
