Okay so what was put about me is 1. Someone who was in my family then sat there and manipulated a man to get him to call someone a pedophile. 2. Sits there and laughs about people’s pain and is what u call a cyber bully. 3. The items that I get that are full perm I make my own textures and yes they have the shadows and wrinkles in them. 4. Never once did I say that Onyx Leshelle said for me to make her maitreya exclusive mesh for her. 4. My medical issues was never discussed with that individual and 5. Never said that I live in the basement. I have my office upstairs where its nice and warm. 6. I don’t pixelate with just anyone in sl it takes that special person. 7. I don’t claim I make thousand of rl dollars either in sl either starting a business is slow and takes time. 8. 550L for a fatpack is a really reasonable price cause u go to other designers their prices are 1300L-1700L. Last but not least my family lives on the region with me so they help with tier. that is what family is for to be there for each other as well if they are living there y not help pay tier. kinda like the person that posted that on here. I gave her a section for her to set up an inworld location and made her a mesh logo and everything and she spit in my face. so this is all drama and bs. Well I know she is sitting back and laughing thinking its funny….me eh….get to know me and u will see all this is nothing but childish bs
And https://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx (FBO internet crime reporting)
Gave the 2nd to someone I know this week.
Do you think she took half the money total from the combined RL fundraiser & SL fundraiser?? Or just the SL fundraiser?
You don’t need anything more than the information given on youcaring and on FB to make a report.
Combined of course as I feel like others the funeral expenses were paid long before this fundraiser so any monies SL or RL she took for personal and not anything that was related to her Mothers’ passing and I think that is disgusting and seriously if I knew all the particulars I would report her and have someone investigate this
From Rose’s heartfelt (lol) post on Facebook:
“I cannot rely on others to take me or use an uber all the time to get to where I need. In the hunts for a RL job even, I could not do it because I have no transport”
So, you’re above relying on others for transportation but not above turning to the internet to solve that problem?
Also, “for a RL job even” – clearly a real job is the last thing on this bitch’s priority list. She lists it as though it’s an afterthought.
I stand by what I said originally when this news broke – total and utter fucking scum. Shame on you. What a heartbreakingly terrible human being.
Legit, LEGIT, this broad lives in the same state, city, precinct as me.She took half the money for “driving lessons”” which only cost max,$150. A license costs $75. So why not just give the rest of the cash back to her father?. That’s what utterly, baffles me.
The father needs to get off his ass and get a job. He is not retirement age. Instead, they all just keep collecting the welfare checks. The whole family spews laziness.
Do we need to rehash the secret from 2 weeks ago about you?
Pot meet kettle.
So let me get this straight NOW and just now she is stating she could not look for a RL job hmmm I think that with all those relatives and family someone in the past years could of taken her for a job or friends but probably does have any of those RL ones that drop everything to help a friend in need ~ Ride share programs or social service advocates could help her with this as they would rather have welfare not be a lifelong career as it looks like it might be but again looking at the dynamics of her family guess letting her sit on her ass all day is ok because OMG she is making $$$ off her SL store *smacks my forehead and wonders of wonders I would put a week of my salary that she pulls out a monthly stipend for her personal needs like a purse, new clothing, etc. Do I think she is stupid on the contrary she knows exactly what she is doing with all her manipulation and stroking her friends just enough that she can lead them around and have them do whatever needs to be ~ case in point that she stopped mentioning shopping trips, etc and pulled those posts so again the pity party for her will never end ~ lets mark on the calendar what the next item up for her needs will be besides driving lessons hmmm
I dont understand the i cant use Uber thing..and when u have a job its not unheard of to meet people and rideshare if ur money hungry ass would ever hand someone gas $ for the help. She has more stories than mother goose. All of them lead to lazy bitch.
To everyone that was kind enough to donate or just go shop at the event to help out, save your lindens. Soon you’ll be ponying up for the car and any future repairs on the car. Car ownership is expensive. If a person does not have the money to pay for the lessons, you have to wonder are they going to be able to pay for the insurance and maintenance? So keep on giving I’m sure your generosity is very much appreciated.
That is so sad if Rose is really lying and has money for luxuries like that. I am a struggling disabled person, I recently lost contact with my mom when her husband took her to Alaska to some brainwash Christian compound, like something straight out of “The Handmaids’ Tale” And when I heard about Rose’s mom, I was seriously emotional, and I wanted to help her. I have her hair, I have followed her on twitch. So… of course I shopped at the event. I got some really nice items, but while I was shopping like I was seriously teary eyed. I want to believe that Rose is a good person, but, this is kind of hard. SL Secrets is not a good site, a lot of seriously unnecessarily mean shit is posted here and in the comments. But I guess it makes money in ad revenue, so there is that. SL Drama is seriously petty and dumb. Stuff like this is a good reason to leave SL. 17 kids died today in Florida, but let’s all focus on SL Drama that isn’t even real.
yet ur here reading it.. lmao shame on urself
Hey “All this drama is gross” if this site is so bad then why are you on here reading and commenting and if you think SL is not real guess the RL Rose is spending fake $$ on her trip to Disney and all that FAKE $$ that you also put into so what’s the concern you have then ~ people asked me what’s with this SL “game” ~ definition of a game to me is there are a set of rules, requirements, winners/losers, goals does that sound like SL ~ my definition and others feel the same is SL is a virtual social platform where you can be anything you want, do anything that might not be possible in RL for YOU ~ ask some of the creators if this is a “game” to them as they spend hours creating a dress, or the ones who create all the dance moves and AO’s that we use if this is a game to them ~ but back to your comment that this site is gawd forbid down and dirty ~ no holds barred and calls out scum, scan & whatever and if it is so so bad then get the fuck off the site ~ and I laugh that with each comment I make there is always that one sometimes a little more thumbs down but I always notice too they never post a comment back as to why they gave me the thumbs down…coward or
I appreciate your comment and you are right. 17 kids died today in Florida. But if you think Lourdes and I are rich from ad revenue from this site you are hilarious. Yes, virtual-secrets is not a good site. It never was. Not in the 490 weeks it’s been around (which translates to more than 9 years…NINE YEARS). If I had a dollar every time someone said virtual-secrets was a bad site, in the over 9 years it’s been around, and split that dollar with Lourdes we’d both be fabulously rich.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could be layabouts and just get a check from SL Secrets ad revenue. Then when ever we had an expensive unplanned expense we could just whine and do a gofundme and/or fundraiser. Days of luxury just wishing for things like being able to use food stamps to pay for diapers and soap.
To bad we actually want more out of life than to sit on our asses all day while society pays our way.
I’m so glad that hard-earned money went to help a fucking grown ass adult with the mindset of a 16 year old to pay for some basic ass shit like driving lessons. Next I hope she buys a package of Baby’s First Big Girl Panties.
Jesus, Rose, to go online YOURSELF and publicly announce that the money is indeed *NOT* going to funeral costs and is instead going to your own pocket, just like everyone expected..
I have no idea if: A. You’re really this fucking stupid and can’t see the problem with your actions, OR B. You just don’t care about your reputation, the trust of your friends and your overall reputation.
@lol because they’re stupid most likely. SL is just a huge bandwagon of using each other for knowledge.. shameful..
off topic… can i change my name .. there are a few more me’s lol i never expected to write more than once.. and i dont want to be confused with a an excuse to not lift a finger supporter. its not my style
so many people on her Plurk and facebook crawling up her ass telling her how great she is and how much she deserves the money but why do none of them call her out?
Why don’t they because all of her friends are cowards and don’t have the balls to speak up and tell her what a piece of shit she is for taking money under false pretenses and that is exactly what she did by now telling everyone where this money is going ALL TO HER as I doubt her parent will truly see any of it since she probably whines to him now about those fucking driving lessons which truly steams me as my Dad taught me to drive but he did tell me he couldn’t take me to the test was too hard on his nerves LOL and I would love to see someone call her out on Facebook
Lets go with B she absolutely doesn’t care its been proven twice how many times can she spit in anyone’s face especially those creators that went out of their way to help out a fellow designer nothing but a skank and truly hope someone does report her maybe karma will seek her out and BAM lets see what she cries then when whoever comes knocking on her door
She is LAZY and wants handouts. Nothing but a con artist way of life. When SL is not around one day, I would love to see who she scams next. Mark my word, I am sure she is on other online games as well scamming.
I’ve been eyeing off some nice new boots recently.
Coming soon: For Bobby event.
Completely unrelated side-note – where are all the supporters who came out of the woodwork last week now that her spending plans have been unveiled?
Y’all got got. And we told you so.
@ Blaise – maybe Rose can give you a ride in her car for all the support! If you blindly support For Bobby to the masses I might let you borrow my shiny new boots.
I don’t understand why creators that offered their items at this event get screamed at. I am one of them and I feel terribly misused for kindness. To me the outcome is that I won’t participate in any fundraisers anymore and it just makes me sad. I definitely learned my lesson from this one and it leaves me with anger , frustration and sadness.
If there are cute custom color versions at For Bobby, holler at your girl.
Bobby that is what I like to know ~ COME on you ROSE supporters what are your feelings now that YOU know what is coming next An event for a CAR disguised as some pity party probably will be her father next but hey DID we say it is a SCAM but oooh nooo Rose is such a nice, generous person we need to help her YEAH right and look what that got you a huge smack in the face ~ happy now? Wonder why people have such a bitter taste in their mouths because 3 years ago this same PERSON did the same exact thing ~ then off to Disney World to enjoy the spoils ~ my feelings are ban any type of fundraiser in SL unless it is for a LEGITIMATE Charity
First of all, as a creator who signed up for this event, I signed up via a link from max and skye, because the two of them hosted the event. I signed up because I wanted to help a friend. I think its ridiculous that people who are trying to help someone are being picked apart. Rose has said specifically that money from the fundraiser will go to medical bills and house payments, if she abuses that then it’s on her, not the people who decided to generously support a friend in need. They’ve already shown proof that 100% of donations went to rose, max and skye didn’t touch a penny of it.
Actually it is on YOU all not just her as it as been said over and over this is not her first rodeo as a scammer believe what you want that you think she will be using $$ for driving lessons OMG what all those aunts, uncles and family members cannot teach her how to drive a car ~ cripes and then it will be money for gas, tires, etc ~ but hey she can use Uber to take her shopping and stuff NOT to look for a job though What a crock of shit and you fell for this hmmm and you call yourself smart…NOT
“I want to address where the funds will be going and what they are to be used for, since there have been some concerns raised regarding this. The money is to be split up to be used for different things. Half is to go directly to my father, to help pay for any medical bills, or other such things that may come in our way in the next few months.The other half will go to me and be directly put into savings for the time being. A portion of that, will be divided off to help pay for driving lessons for myself. There have been some eyebrows raised about that, I’d like to explain that now. I live in Florida, which is a state where driving, even to something like a store, is a need, not a luxury. With my fathers work schedual and my own anxieties about driving, we’ve decided (and this was sometime last year, not a recent idea) that driving lessons would be the best. I had put into works a plans to save the start of this year to afford lessons, but with the sudden passing of my mother, and unseen expenses coming in at the same time, that was put to the side til things have settled down.”
if she lives where there are no buses and stuff.. that means that theres hardly any traffic.. so wtf is she scared for?? lmao she has more excuses than a criminal.. oooh wait .. shes not far from that…getting money under false pretenses is infact like stealing.
what a lying bitch! ANY responsible parent has life insurance. People that lose a parent do not abuse the system like they are. Her and the father are both criminals. Calling the IRS tipline
Florida counties offer door to door transit services for between $3-$6, if needed. The TLSAE course is $25. Driving lessons are about $600 for eight lessons.
Oh okay. An explanation.
Except…there’s the greater portion of 3k roughly she isn’t accounting for except that it’s “going into savings.” Let’s ignore the fact that driving lessons wasn’t the aim of any of this but, okay let’s just take that at face value and assume it was $800 – 1000 total for lessons and the DATA course.
That leaves around $2000.
So how many weeks is she going to wait before ordering that Cintiq? One? Two?
I am speechless. People raised money for medical bills and associated death costs and she is buying driving lessons? Holy cow, I normally raise half an eyebrow over SL antics but that has knocked me off my chair. And it was 6000 usd? Some should be reporting her to the IRS this is disgusting.
Unless I missed some comments…I don’t think anyone here has accused the event runners of keeping the money. I’m honestly confused as to why you think that’s what people are being upset over.
The general grievance has been pretty cut and dry: No one believes Rose will use the money for what it was raised for.
In fact, the only direct negativity about the event runners I’ve seen has been someone saying that they only decided to help out for the attention it would bring them and other people saying they’re enabling Rose by buying into her scam.
I could totally be wrong though…Could you perhaps point out where people have said they thought Skye was pocketing the money?
Today alone she is shopping for presents for her niece’s birthday and talking about her Ipsy box.
Good job raising that 6k for her, guys.
Keep drinking the Rose Jones kool aide
We guys are stupid ummm think again as a creator/designer you probably put a lot of hard work for what a SCAM & a CONartist ~ bet that makes you feel good as this bitch laughs all the way to the bank and trust me and bank on it this will not be her last time scamming any of you ~ jokes on you should of been spent better doing research on who you were donating for again she did this years back so WHO IS STUPID now?
FunnyFace, as I said earlier, I knew Rose personally and was trying to give her the benefit of the doubt. She and I don’t talk any more. We had a falling out. However, she did show me some good qualities while we were friends. It’s hard to swallow the fact that someone you used to trust is a scammer. As I also said before, I’m the first to admit that I was wrong. I realized after the cintiq comment that everything said was true because any time Rose so much as hints at wanting something, she magically has the money to do so the next day. Yes, I should have taken that as hint number one, but why are you being salty at someone who sees through the scam now and is openly admitting to bring wrong to defend her? Seems like you’ll pick a fight with anyone, even if they are literally agreeing with you.
Except now she changed the story to not being able to afford her mom’s death to using the money for “savings” and to get a license. I’m so glad her mom needs a license to be put to rest. The fundraiser was for final arrangements and bills. Not to get a license. Now I’m upset. If she needs a license, she should use the money from her store, not fundraiser money. A license isn’t that expensive. Even for driving classes, she should be using the fundraiser money on BILLS LIKE SHE SAID. She should be paying for those classes out of her SL earnings. Trust, we’ll see her new tablet and designer purse, probably a car with non essential accessories. She’s going to blow that money, not save it. Her track record says as much.
Did not see where you said that you were Wrong am not trying to pick fights BUT from the very beginning most knew this was just another scam and a con but those who just HAD to defend her are backpedaling to admit to all this ~ falling out am guessing should of been a red flag ~ am not one to give $$ to my friends for little things you think am gonna give $$ to someone who is not a friend for this type of fundraiser ummm not even…guessing you did not know her 3 years ago when she played the pity card the first time and scammed everyone out for a trip to DisneyWorld that even if she lives in Florida those tickets are not cheap just for a day trip it is in the hundreds and she conned those that stood beside her believing all those lies …… so I feel your pain umm actually no cuz you were warned
Next GoFundMe … drum roll please……A New CARrRRRRrRrRrR lmao that girl is pitifiul
Forgotten did you really think she would USE that money for something that was long ago paid for ~ has this not been months since her Mother died? Why are you upset because you were conned into believing this bitch’s lies or are you upset because it is finally clicking that what has been talked about for months now has been the truth but guess that is why you sign forgotten because you got taken again shame on you
Why did the for Rose event end 2 weeks earlier than said ?
#10 – Why the hell would anyone be dumb enough to spend that much money on those shit clothes ? I can go to alterego, get something awesome with great texturing and a hud for 99Ls . This woman needs to just stop creating. Maybe if she’s so thirsty she could become a prostitute. lol.
lmao prime example of the HUD thing .. a HUD is a HUD is a HUD.. from anyone. If its not buttons or laces you look like walmart
Don’t you dare diss the stick, I will find you and beat you silly with al dente spaghetti if you do!
did someone noticed that they kicked the rose event?
Well DUH they raised enough $$$ and people were beginning to catch on to her scam so better stop before it all turns to shit, cuz gee now she is gonna take HALF that money for driving lessons OMG and tell everyone about it sorry she should of kept her mouth closed did she not read scamming 101 or the dummy guide to being a Con Artist
Yes the event is no longer there .Unless they moved location?
Mewmew. I’m Happy the event closed early. Just curious what the event owners had said as to why they shut it down.
Because the truth came out. She was lookingto spend the money on a designer bag and a 2000$ tablet
I can’t find any information on Facebook as to why the event ended 2 weeks earlier than said. Have you got a link ?
For Rose was shut down on Sunday morning. The event made over 5k USD so between both fundraisers (the website and the event) she was given over 6k USD. The notice is floating around Facebook for those who want more information.
Kicked from where?
#7 Actually this is fairly common practice for “limited” events or subscription box type things in SL. Most services when they end do not demand store owners to keep their releases off their shelves because the event effectively no longer exists. The ‘exclusivity’ of keeping the items off normal shelves is to push the appeal of the boxes, and if they no longer happen, then the need to remain ‘exclusive’ vanishes (not to mention there is no event to hold the creators responsible to anymore). Most creators go in knowing that 90% of the time the event rules state that after the box is over, they can do whatever they like (albeit, some box services place a timeframe after the event they have to wait through). Many stores will either place the items for sale later or re-release the items in other formats. Some move on and don’t re-release them. This isn’t a new practice at all.
When you bought the box you got exclusivity. You had the item while everyone who didn’t buy the box had to miss out (which is the literal definition of the word). You just assumed it meant a lifetime exclusiveness.
Sorry, that was directed toward #6!
Roflmao @ #4 okay dude she dumped her because you put a knife to your throat like the pussy you are and played the suicide card just to get her to deleted B. Like you a fool Maybe if you actually paid attention to your wife instead stuffing your face like a slob and living like a pig and acting like a child she wouldn’t have been looking for better. You mad she upgraded and is fucking a hotter bitch than your slobby ass.
Bruh I like how he is acting like she willingly dumbed B. When you gotta play the suicide card to get what you want and then try to play like she did it on her own. She loves B stupid 22 and yet she acts more mature than you Fred and how old are you, almost 30. Lol screamin. Destroyed furniture, threatened and degraded people then when that didn’t work you went full psycho. The only reason she removed B was because she fell for your manipulative bs. The thing is B is laughing at your slobby, Chewbacca looking ass, in the end bruh you gonna be by yourself and she is going to be moving up. Next time if you are going to play the suicide card do better at hiding the bs next time you sort of showed you were full of shit when you did this.
Oh. Ouch. Last week I defended Rose. To see her looking into a new tablet now raises my suspicions as well… I didn’t want to think this was truly a scam. I had a lot of respect for her. She truly seemed to have a good heart. Now I’m starting to believe the majority who say this is a scam. Looking into a $350 purse and a $2000 tablet? I could look past it thinking it was a less expensive purse and not knowing about the tablet on top of that. Yeah, now it’s officially not settling right with me. I’ll be the first to admit I was wrong.
Dear number 16,
If you are talking about an SL sexual assault… not possible, you actually have to get on the poseballs or whatever. If you are talking RL then you need to report it to the police and not post it on SL Secrets. Either way maybe talk to someone and stop worrying about that person.
Events / Subscription Boxes – dumb opportunities for people to insert themselves between the consumer and the designer, so that no-talents (or greedy double dipping designers) can take a cut from people that actually produce something. The sooner they are gone, the better. Take gachas with you on your way out the door.
Second Life Charities – much like second life friendships and relationships, look good on paper but fall apart once you factor in how shitty people can actually treat each other, especially with the benefit of internet anonymity (or at least not having to look people in the eyes). If you donated to this girl, it’s your own fault for being naive or not researching. Definitely not excusing her actions, but grow up, everyone involved, especially her.
IDK what #4 says… all I know is it gave me a headache looking at it.
Right?! Like mentally he must be crooked if he put it sideways
#7 – Everyone on this site should be worshiping the stick for its dignity and grace under pressure. The poor thing is, after all, crooked.
#8 – This one is disappointing. Here we have a designer (allegedly – I don’t know who actually made this one) saying they feel duped, and they *should* pull their things from the event, but they won’t because they’re afraid of it being held against them? Way to stand up for what you think is right, there. If you feel the right thing to do is to pull your things out, yet you won’t for fear of reprisal, what are you telling the world about yourself? And more importantly, what could anyone possibly do to you if you did pull out? Say they won’t be your friend any more? Boycott your store? For every person who would have something negative to say about it, there will be another right there to applaud you for standing up for what you think is right. Just remember this: It’s SL, and in SL, no one has any power you don’t willingly give them.
Umm.. gee I can’t imagine why she might not want to remove her items. SL is so clique-ish, this event was set up by Skye who runs multiple large events. Maybe they know that if they pull their items from this they won’t be invited to any others? I wouldn’t pull my items from it either, but I’d definitely be annoyed if I gave up my hard earned money and time to help this girl out and then found out later that it was a scam.
In SL, event owners have a LOT of power.
SL Event Owners don’t have that much power. The Events are just cliques. There are always new events popping up to host the many new (and old) designers/creators. Yes, networking matters but at the end of the day, your customers and clients return to you in Second Life because of your good work NOT because of the Event clique you belong to. You can be in the “Top Events” but not make any sales and vice versa be in an unpopular event as a creator and make enough for your RL rent and bills. Brands like Apple Fall, Artisan Fantasy, THOR and the irreputable but successful Doux/L’etre are just some examples of brands not in cliques that are doing just fine.
I would be annoyed as well, Amanda, and if I were annoyed enough to drag it to SL Secrets, I’d be pulling my things out of that event. It might be difficult for me in the short-term, but SL runs in cycles, and a week or two later people would be on to the next major drama and would forget all about my pulling out of a scam event (if it is, in fact, a scam. I’m not paying enough attention to it to care.). As for event owners having power…. I can tell you this: From what I have seen and heard from other designers, a lot of them are pulling out of events completely and returning to the mainstore model because events don’t work any more. People are tired of them, tired of seeing the same old thing month after month, and most of us don’t make enough money at events to justify paying what organizers are charging for booth space. I make ten times as much in my mainstore as I ever did at an event in any given week, with less than 1% of the traffic. In all honesty, with very few exceptions, the only people making money at events are the event organizers, so yes, they’re going to act like they can make or break you because they’re afraid of losing their cash cow. The fact is … they can’t do either. No one has that kind of power. It reminds me of the time around 2009-2010 when models in SL would be threatened with blacklisting if they didn’t look, speak and act a certain way. I had to laugh, because it’s simply not possible to blacklist someone. For every organization that tells you no, there is always another that will say yes. All that… Read more »
Yes power on an online game when that online game is your sole source of RL income. Not that I think that’s the smartest thing to do is rely on it, but a lot of these people do. So the last thing they would want to do is piss off someone who runs large events, or is in the clique with large event owners.
Are you not a creator, OneNameOnly?
Just like in the real world, networking matters. That’s how business works, even in a “online computer game LMAO!!!”
So yes, power exists. If you want to get into the bigger events and make the bigger money, you absolutely have to know the right people and keep the right people on your side. As we’ve seen, your work can’t always do all the speaking for you.
It’s not a bad thing, but it is how business works in both worlds.
Power on an online computer game? LMAO!!
SL EVERY FUCKER CHEATS ON EVERY FUCKER … JS
That’s what you get when you’re an arrogant cocky liar ass bitch. Btw, those skins are ugly af. Why would i want to look like those super models anyway?
I am getting tired of hearing about her shopping dreams. I think its very tacky. I really want to know where the money from this event is going! If she is using it for legitimate things like bills she should tell us to stop the rumors.
shes showing it.. why say it? lol everyone else seems to know.. why not you?
I window-shop online with my FB friends all the time. I buy basically none of it, but at least once a week I post some extravagant item like “O GOD I NEED DIS.”
What’s the deal?
Do you also beg your friends for money, start your own gofundme accounts under false pretenses and also get a family member to start one too? If not, there is no big deal. If so, then you’d have as messed up priorities as she does, and also lack the ability to actually adult the same way she does. Thankfully, most adults don’t act like that, even ones that are fiscally irresponsible can draw the line somewhere, usually.
If she wasn’t actually contemplating which one(s) to buy, while also crying about poverty constantly with her hand out, people would probably think it’s just one of those I’d love to be able to have this kind of things. I’m sure most people have those thoughts, even conversations. At least, I know I do, and most people I know do. The difference is it’s more like window shopping when most people do it, not “help me pick one out” shopping, The picture gets way blurry when you add in everything else though.
At any rate, while I still feel bad that she lost her mother, and I’m inclined to believe that much of her story is actually true, I still think this woman is a complete train wreck. I also feel terrible for the designers that thought they were helping someone out, only to find that wasn’t really the case. I can understand their frustration, and where the naivety some event customers and designers have comes from, even if it may very well be their own fault.
Why not go directly to the source if you are so tired of hearing about and I bet you a weeks salary it will be more lies and more boo hoo pity me and I am sure no one will say anything directly to her those that seem to know her so well and defend her pathetic fucking ass. Wonder if just one designer would say to her am hearing rumors where this money is going and can you tell me exactly what hospital, expenses that it is going for Why not because no one wants to upset this poor grieving person as someone said we all grieve differently just like not one person questioned her going to Disney after her so called parents house almost got foreclosed if you going to put money into a con artist and feed and enable her each deserve what you get because burn me once I do not wait for the 2nd or 3rd time to wake up
#4 Lmfao what idiot made that. At least if you are going to upload a message to diss someone at least have it rotated the right way. Judging by this post your wife is clearly upgrading .
#3) Lots of creators are similar these days. BESOM is good quality stuff. Buy it or don’t.
#5 & #6) Subscription Boxes in SL are stupid. Creators shoot themselves in the foot since most people don’t get to see their “exclusive” item/will not subscribe. Do all those creators split profits? Because some work really hard and some half-ass it. Customers shoot themselves in the foot with these subscription boxes too after the boxes die and their “exclusive” items become regular merchandise.
#8, #9, #13, #20) This is so ridiculous that she is taking that charity money and openly shopping for luxury items in the same breath.
#10) No one in their right mind would wear this stuff. This is the kind of stuff you find in the mall on the mainland on a sim no one visits.
#11) Those Facebook posts. She’s ridiculous airing her dirty laundry like that. Hey Antonietta, here’s some light for you… SL is your hobby right now. Clean your house, spend time with your husband and go to your job interviews. WHEN you have free time, PLAY with your skins in Second Life. And no one cares about your personal bullshit, people just care if you make nice skin.
#12) Events are just Events. If you don’t enjoy the Event don’t go, don’t look, don’t shop there. Stick with the brands and events you already love. If you find a new creator at a new unheard of event, great, otherwise don’t get your panties in a twist.
#17) Why are you watching this girls profile so closely? Get a life.
The for Rose event just seems like yet another trick to feed Skyes disgusting ego. Jokes on you Skye, we all know you’re an evil bitch. I feel bad for the designers that fell in to your scam.
All I know is, that if you are writing this, you don’t know Skye at all. So sounds like the jokes on you — sad life not to have a friend as loyal and kind and fierce as she is. lol.
Sad? Because she is defending a scammer and a con artist and that everyone is looking at her at possibly be in cahoots with all this too? I am loyal to my friends but if they are hurting others like taking money am going to speak the hell up and tell this friend WTF are you doing not defend something that is WRONG ~ get a grip
No the joke is on you.. you live on a computer game , friends with a person who has an avatar named Skye . Do you have friends in the real world? I see such a pattern with Rose, Skye and supporters. They are losers who LIVE life online and have nothing in the real world. If they had a thriving life they would not be on the computer all day talking to their virtual buddies. Oh yeah, and saying you talk online to an AVATAR facebook is Really hitting it low. Pathetic.
If more residents keep speaking out and making it know to the creators about what is going on with Rose and how it is all a big scam they might get the hint in their heart they show kindness when in reality all Rose has done is slap them in the face and laughing all the way to the bank ~ truly I wish LL would step up and place a ban on these type of fundraisers, which 99% are scams. Only ones I will donate to are those that provide legitimate charity organizations like Relay for Life ~ I refuse to pay for a creators computer *yes there was a fundraiser for that*, to provide any additional funds to cover their animals medical expenses *yes there was one for someone’s cat, or to fund any personal hardships ~ as well as boycotting any fundraising events as well
Helping a cat or a dog in need it’s so much different than helping someone get a computer.
I don’t mind at all helping people in need with their pets.
Some of those bills are huge,I love animals and I would help those in need.
But I agree with the rest ?
the thing is Rose literally does not care, DOES NOT CARE, she literally said she thinks the secrets are about people thinking her mother didnt really die (???????) ARE YOU DUMB? WE KNOW YOUR MOM DIED, WE JUST THINK IT’S SHADY AS FUCK THAT YOU’RE GOING TO ACCEPT FUNDS FROM A FUNDRAISER (AGAIN) AND YOU’RE SHOPPING FOR DESIGNER BAGS AND CINTIQS.
Why is this so hard to understand?!? Like I’m actually laughing now because she literally CANNOT BE THIS DUMB AND NAIVE.
And as I asked last week but no one has yet to answer (aside from she has no transportation – uhhhh, people have been getting off their second-life-addicted asses and SOMEHOW MIRACULOUSLY MAKING IT TO A PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT) ———– why won’t Rose get a j-o-b?
She’s not in school.
She’s not “caring for her mother.”
She’s not taking care of her sister/niece.
Shopping isn’t a full time job, although it seems to be.
I don’t even care about the scamming now, but her UTTER REFUSAL TO UNDERSTAND THE ISSUE is fucking worse. A box of rocks has nothing on her. and the shills on her TL enabling her are fucking hysterical.
Is it bad that I don’t even know what a cintiq is? XD
She is second generation welfare. The whole family lives off the government when they are all young enough to work. If you look at her RL picture on her SL profile, it is quite obvious she loves to sit online all day and eat.
If you pay your money and get an item that you wanted in return, why is it such an ORDEAL about where the designer who made the item sends the resulting profit?
I’m pretty sure Bobby explained this to you last week from the perspective of the cause being one that people don’t agree with. He used the Nazi example you missed the point over. Now it’s being shown more and more than it’s not simply a cause people don’t believe in, it’s a sham. Try this example:
You’re out shopping one day and you notice flyers for a special sale where all the money is going to go toward your local animal shelter. You weren’t planning on going to that store beforehand, but you like animals and you figure “hey why not, it’s for a good cause!” After making some purchases you find out the person who was representing the shelter actually took the money and bought themselves a new car and didn’t actually give any of the money to the shelter.
Now, you’re going to tell me that you don’t see HOW people are upset. Yes, they got some items, but the intent that they made those purchases with has been completely negated. It’s especially maddening because a lot of the stores advertised the event to their groups as a “Even if you don’t buy my item, please come shop and maybe find something else you like for the cause!” It places an emphasis on the cause and not the items being sold. That’s well and fine if the money were being used as it should be, but since it’s not, THAT’S why people are upset.
No one likes being deceived. If you don’t understand after that, I have to assume you’re being deliberately obtuse.
#1 and #2 typical overweight housewives coming on SL to try to feel better about thenselves with a hot avatar (although 1 looks like a noob) and diddle their bits, which they do not get in RL.
Do you only have one insult? Because, seriously, the body snark is tedious.
8 & 20 Since Rose came to SecondLife she has been scamming people. Her scamming came to a head 3 years ago when she decided to raise money to save her family home from foreclosure. Shortly, after the event she went to Walt Disney World with a group of other SecondLife Scammers and liers that ride her coat tails like she’s a celebrity ; some of whom helped her organize her new event, For Rose. There’s never been any photo proof of her poverty, but there are plenty of photos of her Disney World Vacation. I bring up photo proof as she openly shared an extensive collection of Copic Markers that cost seven dollars each. Those in poverty can not afford seven dollar markers. On to For Rose, Rose should be ashamed for dragging yet more people into her scam. Any event that recommends donating 100% of your profits to someone is a red flag to fraud. Most huge real life charities don’t give 100% profit. As a SL creator you shouldn’t either. This event hosted by Skye is yet again another representation of how a small group of friends with influence in SL can and will scam designers at any opportunity they get. It’s important to understand what people should do in a crisis. One of those things is not keeping a sim open. Downsize your store front. Rent a small space and sell from there and marketplace. Another thing is to drop the price on all of your products to an extremely low price 99L or less to make any money you can to cover your own emergency fund. It’s important to be an adult. Rose has never shown any signs she’s capable of being an adult. Bragging and sharing products she’s purchasing directly following a fundraiser is… Read more »
How true. The past few months I been told I might be terminally ill. Waiting for test results but before the terminally ill diagnoses was finalized. I went and got life insurance to make sure my family was secured
Dinosaur am sorry to hear that ~ you show insight to making sure your family is well cared for I truly hope the insurance company will not ask health questions that show you have an ongoing condition that results being terminal as most companies either you have to pay a lot of money out for policies that do not ask health questions either way good luck and lets hope that it is not terminal
I’m very sorry to hear this. I don’t know you, but, I will be praying for you and your family.
She is a disgusting human being. My father passed from a long battle with cancer, but never a once would I bring that personal information into SL. That is for family. It seems Rose is an attention whore and needs it no matter what outlet she uses. It is pathetic. Then you have the no GED issue and whole grown family who is able to work, but instead scam the government and collect welfare because they are lazy. Lastly, second life is an online game. There is no such thing as virtual fame, but pathetic Rose needs it because she does Nothing to be proud of in her Real Life. She is a con artist.
#7: LOL. brilliant. you made my day. thank you
I’m actually disappointed to see Luxe Box close. I purchased it nearly every month since the beginning and it only started to degrade in quality around September/October. It was an excellent value for the items most months and I wear plenty of them regularly. Running a subscription box seems difficult and I hope that maybe someone else will take up the mantle in the future.
Oh, and to the bitches crying about their items no longer being exclusive, grow the fuck up and get over it. If exclusivity to a virtual item is all you care about, you need to get a hobby. There was never a promise it would be exclusive forever. You got your item, you got it at a relatively good price for a bunch of fatpacks, and you were able to wear it for months without it being sold in stores. Get over it.
It’s funny too, because in the end- and you can see this on Flickr, they ALL look the same. If you want a different look, stop shopping at events.
you’re so right on the exclusive thing.. are they really upset that they can’t be the only assholes wearing their -make glitter shoot from the brackets now[EXCLUSIVE] from 18 months ago? lol build a fucking bridge and get over it.. most of us forget about things we bought 10 minutes ago
Back in the day with Magika hairs in the Luxebox people were complaining because it was a small hud with not so great colors. When the Magika owner put the same hair in store with a better selection people were all sorts of angry. She did put more colors in the luxebox for us to get a redelivery after such a backlash. I think she just did a half ass job of it because it was a brand new thing. I didn’t make a fuss about it because the hair had a color I liked and I change hair so often that it just didn’t phase me. Though for quality some of it was just crap. Having hair that was rigged for shit (after Magika was replaced) and clothes that were unwearable unless you wanted to see skin poking through it and unable to alpha those places without missing chunks of your body. It was suppose to be some great box, but it really wasn’t all that great everytime. I just quit bothering because it wasn’t worth the hassle and I didn’t start back up because the designers list was getting worse.
Didn’t the Luxebox owners also put up all boxes at a discount so people could buy before it closed so technically you could bitch about that too, but I see it as a nice gesture to allow people to grab things before they retire at a huge discount? Also, the event never said exclusive (I remember the drama over the hairs) it said semi-exclusive during the event. The event is now closed down so the owners I think have been very decent allowing designers the rights back to their items as the event rules so their direct customers can continue to buy them as they no longer can buy the historical boxes which was part of the original “event mandate”.
I am not a fan of these subscription boxes as my past posts will have shown, and most of the posts I saw to date were bitching over the bodies not supported in the box, but I find it funny how people bash the event owners who I think have been legitmally fair to all concerned, so props are due here in this case.
Now onto Rose. She sickens me with the situation above. As a person who has lived a few years since my discharge in need with actual disabilities, I could never dream of defrauding the SL community of their funds. I use my money very carefully, budget properly and live within my means. I am sure those donating are probably not rich themselves so the fact this girl blantantly takes so much from a community is disgusting in it’s ethics alone. She should be ashamed.
#7 is clearly trying to revive and ride on the coattails of Ren & Stimpy’s Log. How dare you!
#1 has shown us she gets zero attention. I’ve never seen an avi that have actual grandma legs. congrats. #3 Besom is always in events.. if this is new to you maybe you should shop more. Also stop with the coattails shit the only shoe creator that has come close to real designing is Azoury. Everyone else needs ‘inspiration’. Code for something to knock off. #4 if you’re as sideways as your post I’d be fucking Bianca too. #5 & 6 see comment for #12 #9 sounds like LMAO from last week…make sure you pluck to pubes from your teeth. #10 those ads speak for themselves and exactly what i see with all Hud crap. and whats up with the bottom left pic.. I havent seen an ass so saggy since visiting Dirty South Beach. #11 is interesting. but only because someone ACTUALLY took the time to find what to match the vendor pic to. lol. I’m not mad though, its why we come back weekly. It does in fact look morphed though or just pasted onto a head map with lighter brows with a hint of manlyness. #12 Don’t blame events more than the designers. Thats dumb. Events don’t force you to be in them. Designers are slacking because they’re taking on too much. Ways to fix that problem…don’t buy from them anymore. Downward spiral them back to getting your moneys worth. Not all unheard of brands are bad everyone started from the bottom. and to be quite honest most new brands are just 2nd or 3rd brands from the bigger ones i’ve noticed. Events are nothing special anymore…someone should just make a mall let all these brands rent a store and there you have them all in 1 place. I can’t think of any other reason to shop… Read more »
#3 Besom is not an active designer in FLF, they just put out an item on Reign’s week and call it a day to attract the crowd off from riding the waves and as far as C88 it was a prom round so she was invited most likely.
IT WILL BE A FUCKING MIRACLE IF KATTINGTON ACTUALLY GAVE A SHIT ABOUT HER CUSTOMERS INSTEAD OF THEIR LINDENS.
There is always a problem with unpacking her stuff, her vendors, an item missing in the box, the permission set wrong especially on gachas so you wend up being stuck with them instead of trading. If she answers notecards that would be amazing too, she got no problem answering someone in a group that’s not hers though. I love Reign but feel those ladies are being used clearly for Kattington’s own self pleasure. Now, don’t get me wrong, she came a decent long way from where she began but obviously she’s not all up to par on customer service. Maybe just maybe if she got her shit together, pulled down her store and repacked everything correctly and offer some decent service other than having a sale here and there to support her cat or whatever habit she needs to support at said time than we would actually get somewhere and support her rather than seeing her in events on the tail of her designer friends.
because they are all in business to make money who cares why its on sale .. normal people don’t mind lots of things on sale.. you seem so offended by it.. why not ask her yourself? You have so much info on the topic i wouldnt put past you being part of the sim just to create a new topic.
LMAO. Funny! No I’m not part of the sim and do I know who submitted the secret. You got the right to assume and make an ass out of yourself. Any other valid shopper would state the same after noticing the same and following said events such as FLF. Get a clue. SL is pretty small. Advertisements go to FB and Flickr. Everyone knows shit about everything. That’s why we’re all here on a Sunday. With all this said I voiced what I needed to. How quick you are to defend Besom then accuse someone for being part of it. I would go directly to the person and I have but she don’t answer for shit. I’m done though. Good luck.
“You have so much info on the topic i wouldnt put past you being part of the sim just to create a new topic.”
THIS. so much. this.
damn that sale she had for the cat was like a year ago..Ive always had pretty good service from them. I dont think Reign is hardly lifting any brand to anywhere lol. coat tail joke or not. I wasnt under the impression they were still relevant. period.
the only secret no one really gave a fuck about.. hi5 for trying to make your friends secret famous. but find something else to cry about or grow a pair and say it to her face…you’re most likely 1 of the jerkoffs i left the reign group over many moons ago who has nothing better to do in SL than annoy people with pointless group chat convo. Go to a sim for small talk.
i’ve never had an unpacking issue and if you think Reign is bringing authentic you’re slow.
Maybe you’re just one of the lucky few and thanks for your opinion as you’re entitled to it. Why aren’t they doing a discounted item every week at the landing point then? Why harp on someone else’s week? Think about it. They aren’t on FLF rotation at all while Reign is. So, being that it’s publicly advertised, of course whoever is tping in for the shoes are going to see her next to it. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out.
#14’s arms are too long for the average SL fug, but otherwise hear, hear.
When you have a huge ass and thighs that have a gap between them, you look like a horse. Period. Nothing else.
Legs need to be longer and she needs to be skinny as a stick with bigger boobs and a tiny head.
looks like someone slammed a book closed on her ass sideways.
@8 Please don’t feel obligated to leave your item there if you don’t want to be a part of the event anymore, if you don’t agree with something you are 100% within your rights to change your mind regardless of the reasoning behind it.
@13& @20 It begs belief that anyone would continue to research and publicly consider purchasing such high value items if they were in such financial hardship. Beyond all of the name calling and lashing out, perhaps, as was said last week, Rose’s friends need to pull her aside to have a frank and open conversation about responsibility. I won’t say what anyone else should do with their money, far from it, if she can afford these things without putting herself in a worse position then of course she is well within her rights, but by the same measure, the backlash against her should be expected and lessons learned from it. If you are going to attempt to make money from people’s charity, do not openly discuss how this charity money will be used if it is not for the express purpose for which it was requested.
@15 I love that Berry is taking a public stance on this, I’ve bought more backdrops and become more aware of other backdrop brands because of backdrop city, it’s great advertising, and it’s a great resource, I hope it lasts!
Of course, Strawberry Singh wants to jump on the backdrop city bandwagon, how else will she continue to win all those amazing awards at award ceremonies from her sloppy shapes and monotone voiced videos…
You aren’t obligated to like anything she does, she’s not doing them for just you. You don’t have to like her shapes either, they won’t meet what everyone likes.
You could though, be more adult about things, but I forget, Second life has adult ages juveniles who want to down on others who are getting the attention others aren’t.
She does wonderful work, her voice is not monotone. Maybe you just hear it yourself.
At any rate, being more adult would seriously make things sound better from your end.
I don’t understand the grievance with Strawberry’s videos and blogs. She packs a great deal of information in them and is clear and concise, without the drama of some other unboxers or vid makers.
Personally, it’s not a grievance with her work but an issue with her sanctimonious bullshit. She’ll happily don her SJW victim hat but is on the other hand equally comfortable assuming the role of a bigot? People here have really short/selective memories.
#1. – It seems like this person has ZERO self-worth. Self-worth cannot be purchased or given to you.
#4. – I can’t read your secret. What were you thinking when you made it?
#5. – I stopped purchasing this box long ago. I’m not shocked to see that it didn’t survive.
#7. – I’m so fucking pissed off over this stick, you have no idea. Most offensive shit on this entire site. How fucking dare you! It’s worse than all the Backdrop City drama – it’s ruined my day. (That stick is brilliant.)
#9. – You cannot have an elephant. I am the only person to have an elephant.
#11. – TL:DR but that photo manip. is F. U. G. L. Y.
#12. – People still shop at Romp? That event has been rapidly going down hill. On9 is strange. I’ve never been to the third event. I agree that events are ruining the quality of items in Second Life.
#16. – This made me sad.
#17. – Who’s this person?
#19. – Glad this individual has been exposed. He was a predator three years ago that I know of. He hung around three friends of mine. Things went very bad very fast. Happy to have never got involved with that or him.
I don’t know why people are making such a big deal about this Rose chick wanting a new bag when Devil Damone did the same thing months ago with the ‘love for devil’ event meant to raise funds for her. Yes all those designers were suckered too! You people really need to do your research before you have events to help the “sick” and “broke”… smh
Do you have proof about Devil Damone?
Also just because one person has previously done it, doesn’t make it acceptable. It is despicable to abuse peoples kindheartedness and generosity. The problem I think for a lot of people when it comes to doing the research on the cause or person is the events are being hosted by very well known Designers or Event Organizers whom they trust so they think it must be legit. Perhaps naive, but I think it makes the organizers complicit in it. even unintentionally.
There’s plenty of proof on Devil Damone. Ask any of the people in her past that she screwed over that were close to her. Before she moved on to new people every other month after they started getting suspicious. And before she got so good at covering her shady BS.
Mm more I can’t read items. Woot bingo on the card!
I’m actually going to make a whole set of cards so we can play bingo like the little old ladies do at the firehall. 😉
