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 want to thank the creators of sl secrets for opening this sandbox up to all the little drama toddlers of sl. It is nice to be reminded that even those older than me still act like a bunch of middle schoolers. It boosts my ego up a bit so I know that in a sense I am more mature than a 30 year old. Keep up the good work, oh and the those posting the pictures….. isn’t it best to say to them personally. Oh wait that means you’d have to actually be mature, nvm, forget I even asked. Lmfao lawd. Anyway oh and thanks to the those posting you guys really do diaper change might wanna call money for that. Lmfao another week of fuckery.
Haha Alright, I really must finally pop in and comment after a few years or more of lurking here…. As for Kink, I can assure you, as someone who knows them, worked with them, and left on their own accord… Yeah that place is crap for income. People end up being paid for singing.. or laughing… one weird chick got paid to hiccup. but even that only gets you a small tip…. The owner is 2-faced and paranoid as fuck…. She will surely jump down your throat for things she told ya to do. She is so paranoid that she will ban someone and pass it around to other clubs with fake chat logs and lies. Even worse she had to weasel her way into friendship with those clubs so she could have an “influence.” The majority of the girls advertise at every other club and freelance place, as well as work at them all… but supposedly they are loyal and supposed to only work at the one place… They have so called training classes at one time where they were just turning you into another boss lady wanna be. :3 The people who work there, and this is coming from their own mouths. Only work there because the boss tips them 80% of their income. The club name and location changes ALL the time… in a 2 yr time span it was changed at least 4 times… probably because people stopped going to enjoy them… They aren’t REAL FinDomme’s…. Please… I mean does anyone know what one really is? I hope you do your research :3. They are just money seeking hoes that got bored of pole dancing because they are disproportionate ugly women who have 0 skill and think that spitting insults will win them the world. So… Read more »
Hot damn, nearly at Week 500. On behalf of all the gutter trash in Second Life, thank you Lourdes and Kesseret for giving us a place to rain fury down upon the miscreants and troublemakers. You make taking a shit enjoyable.
We love our staff, we tip them because we have the financial freedom and a sustainable healthy business that allows us to do so. We appreciate their hard work and professionalism. We have yet to identify the person making the ‘complaint’, although it isn’t uncommon for people with a financial fetish to become upset or remorseful. Thank you for all the concern you have expressed about our welfare but, I assure you, we are doing just fine. We will wander freely around Second Life as we wish, keep watching. Come visit us if you enjoy verified, experienced and professional Escorts and Dominas <3
You keep avoiding the conversation, I’ll just keep commenting my same comments. If you’re attempting to make your business sound good – you probably shouldn’t avoid all of the negative comments below.. lol, but again – if I was being slaughtered in the comments for making a secret about myself.. I guess I would avoid the actual comments too. Nobody is actually making a ‘complaint’ about Kink because 1.) nobody is actually spending money at Kink and 2.) nobody discusses Kink unless they desperately post a Secret about themselves. In the rare case that you do post a secret about yourselves, that’s when we all enjoy the joke at the little prim skybox filled with bea memorials to broke basic old ladies that are now on their 3rd (?) attempt at a club RIP RAW & Gold Diggers <3
As I've stated repeatedly, nobody is "watching" you – what we are doing is laughing at the fact that even the owner of the club has to free lance at Loseria and other businesses because Kink gets no clients of its own. That's why anyone who works there besides management quits after about two or three weeks/returns to their main alts and barely logs into those accounts anymore because its not worth their time (sounds familiar doesn't it? hahaha)
If I remember correctly, you’re the same club who had their tipping data posted a few months ago? At least now you’re admitting to tipping your staff, at that stage it was nothing but denial and yelling “Photoshop”. I also notice that a few people have mentioned you in the comments below, and yet you’ve done nothing to respond to them. That’s a little silly – you’re either above posting here if you’re not. I could fully understand NOT responding at all and taking the higher ground, and yet you don’t even do that – you just don’t respond to those sipping on what some 50-going-on-12-year-old referred to as “Haterade.” Having seen your numbers a few months ago I have a hard time believing the validity of a “client” posting this given your earnings. In my experience, the Venn crossover between those who purchase escorts and those who post on SL Secrets is very limited, and as someone else pointed out: they have yet to return to the comments, which realistically anyone posting a secret would do to vehemently argue their point. There seems to be a trend recently of failing clubs posting fake secrets to drum up some sort of publicity. The whole concept of “we’re above it” flies out the window when you respond. The air of your post seems to indicate that you have some sort of “we’re better than you” attitude, and yet there appears to be no logical reason why you would be. You know what other clubs have done recently when called out? Nothing. You know who responded? Yourselves and Indulge, who I am led to believe are laughed at pretty heartily, and judging from your response I can see why. As someone with no horse in the race’s opinion, you’ve successfully embarrassed yourselves… Read more »
Hey, you got that TOTALLY wrong–I’m 70 going on 100–dusty af, and you ‘re still sipping on the deliciousness of that salty af Haterade ^^
Feeling very unembarrassed, thank you for checking. Why should we bother responding to anything down below? Or humor anything any of you mention? Lol. They’ve already made their minds up. All of you claim we did this ourselves. Why should we care about the assumptions any of you make? We’re damned if we do and damned if we don’t. Anything we say, all of you will still call us liars and whatever else that jumps to mind and none of you would believe the truth. So…why bother? We happily keep doing what we’re doing while all of you think what you want to think. So have fun with it. That is the whole point of virtual-secrets, is it not? We know what’s going on and what we’re about. Frankly, that’s good enough for me.
Lawd again with the strip club drama.
In commenting you’re showing that you care. Is… That not clear?
i look at sl secretes and im like. why are most big creators mean and rude to people who basically pay for most of their shit. like creators an event owners. should treat their damn customers/creators like queens and kings. and with the most utter respect. because in the end its up to the customers if they will shop at your store or not. and the thing with toxxic i did not know she was like that. she seems so nice
im a fairly new creator in sl. and i know for a damn fact i would not become a snobby cunt. that mistreats,lies and uses costumers. main reason i got someone who will keep my ass in line. I hope these bigger creators/event owners will realize. that they will loose it all, if they keep being mean like this. im not saying all big creators, just certain ones
Flair for Events works really hard on every event they always look to have a nice variety of best designers and nice location. Compared to other big events flair for events cares about their customers and always try to communicate with the designers.
anything rose related – wait until her scamming ass realizes shes going to need car insurance too #hideyowallets
#4 LMFAO… umm i havent seen anything about tmp in like 4 years.. on sl, flickr, anywhere.. only on perv sims and thats just the guys with that head where the beard that never freakin loads. #ugotrobbed
#5 – that outfit looks dumb and so does the cum raincoat at the gacha event powdery ass got me to never shop again. The only people who shop at moda are the over sized skiing girls because no one else has enough pleather to cover those calves and chicken drumstick-esque thighs. (pukes)
#8 not worth the time to type
#10 the people who take the time to find the shit deserve an award lmao
#14 him… he has the non loading beard/skin. lol
#15 dick hopping is fun. try it.
#17 babyhairs are cute but its true they shouldn’t be touching your eyebrows
the rest who cares and
#22 idk Mya, i know she doesn’t have a big fan base but i’m going to have to agree with that statement. If you have a business in sl and bloggers that post should be soooooo relatable. I know its not a ‘job’ but if you take the time to fill out an application and agree to terms from a brand either do it or get lost. plain and simple. if you don’t have a brand to understand her point of view your an idiot for even opening your trap on the topic. I stopped dealing with bloggers when the last blogged an outfit the day after the event ended. When you want things done right, especially in SL you have to do it yourself.
10) People are funny here, they want to look a RL model, they want do things that they can not do in RL…. but they blame when 3d designers do something that exist in RL. Really, they want all 3d Designer are Le Corbusier? This is so stupid. SL is a game, a virtual reality game, so what’s the problem do things inspired or look like as Real Life, if they are not infringing any brand TOS? Most sl 3d designers are expert in Maya, Blender and others, why bicth about things they do like RL? People use hair like RL hairs, use clothes like RL Clothes and this is the game! For me, this person that is copying RL items to minimize the work of one 3d designer is just an envious person that maybe do not even know how to make a cube in a 3d program or are loosing customers…. I tried to learn Blender and Maya ONCE, and I can say it is difficult! You need time and dedication. So, if they do something that exist in RL is not a problem, It is normal and happen all time in many games! I think those people that complain here, maybe just buy original designer furniture in RL… maybe from Le Corbusier, Hans Wegner, Arne Jacobsen…. ohh yes I know them, I studied architecture in the past…. So please, stop bitch about 3d designer! If they do original mesh does not mean original designer, mean they made the object by themselves, it is not a template that they buy in any FP store! Or imagine: 3d Designer that make blue mesh eyes are copying who? GOD? The Big Bang? This is a game, let’s just relax and let’s thanks for all 3d designer we have that make… Read more »
not always original mesh is made by the designers… a lot of people outsource … and if you didnt know…. now you know.
p.s. if you make mesh .. you are a mesh maker… if you can make a mesh without ‘steal-spiration’ ur a designer….if you buy templates AND the textures from the full perm section ur not a designer… ur a stylist at the most… or a unpacking hud maker. lol
#2 & #6 Yes… I agree that Rose is a cunt…can we move on and stop repeating the same thing over and over every week?
#8 The skin fair was a joke….and not a funny one.
#10 & #13 Most of the shit in sl is a rip of something from RL…if you don’t like that then don’t buy it.
#14 Who the fuck spends 30k on an avi without making sure it’s top quality….and who the fuck spends 30k on an avi?
#17 Please submit a pic of your avi so I can see how fabulous you apparently are? More than likely I would lol at it because you probably look like every other generic bitch in sl.
#22 If this person is not a creator and it’s her bf then why the fuck is she even saying anything? When you create something and aren’t satisfied with a blogger you made an agreement with then you can speak up…until then you can go ahead and take several seats because your opinion is not valid or even important.
I met Rose about a year ago and she was the sweetest.. When I heard about what happened in her rl and how there was an event going on, I immediately wanted to help as I myself have had RL struggles so helping an old friend in need was 100% the goal. After all this came out and the event shut down early I was so let down and hurt by how she and the owners of that charity event went about it. I thought I knew who was a sweet kind hearted person and I thought the ones putting on the event were the same.. BUT I’m not sitting here attacking Rose or anybody, just wish people would be a little more genuine when looking or needing help with RL. People and creators put in a lot of time and effort getting people to help her situation and everybody kinda got shat on..
Would love Rose and maybe the creators to acknowledge this and maybe say something?? Seems like this will happen again in the future once people forget, but hopefully not. Just need to own up to the mistakes and maybe this can die down, but this situation definitely needs to be addressed by those at fault.
You sound like a really kind person and sad that your eyes are open to a lot of the cruel morons in SL ~ not sure how long you have been in SL but sadly this is not Rose’s first time conning good people out of their money and probably won’t be her last. Will she ever say she is sorry OMG no as hell would freeze over and Satan would reign – will any of her friends ever step up and condone her actions again the answer will be absolutely and forever NO. Most just fluff it off except for the ones that donated the 6k to go into her pocket while she laughs at those that did. She has no compassion and no remorse so good luck on having her or those involved ever say words differently.
maybe whoever is trying to get their point across about ROSE and her store, which everyone should boycott ~ as for anyone that buys her stuff, friends with are just saying to her “HEY great job in ripping off people for 6K REAL MONEY” there are others that have not heard about Rose and her scam ~ sorry if you want to move on from Rose shit but all that money went INTO HER pocket not to help with funeral expenses and no one thinks to say lets make sure everyone knows HER and stop buying her SHIT from her store OLIVE! I fell for her first scam giving my hard earned money because I knew what its like being homeless and hearing about the trip to Disney angered me a lot and then again she is trying no she succeeded in scamming more money than maybe someone only did it because of where it was supposed to go ~ SORRY I do not care how many times Rose is mentioned and yes might get old but again maybe it might start shutting her down.
Well aware of who she is and what she has done. And the situation appalled me just like everyone else..which is why i will never buy anything from her again and left her group. But that doesnt mean i need to talk about it every week.
Let’s try this again….. Since it didn’t go through?? I am glad I am not the only person who thinks Tyr is a trash human being. I hope karma has a go.
Elisa’s shape is adorable. Just because you don’t like it doesn’t make it ugly….
fuck that, it’s fiona from shrek
No, i dont agree… no matter what skin you use,… that looks just ugly
I’m not a fan but I do give her props for having a unique look. Trash talking someone’s avi though is pretty pathetic not to mention it just shows how petty someone is.
Sorry but no. That shit is ugly
I agree!!! Elisa is so cute and she’s so talented the people attacking her look jealous.. Why are people so focused on others avatars is beyond me but it’s getting old.
Nobody can whine. Saw that exact unicorn light at my local store in RL. I guess you’re gonna accuse them of copying too? lmfao.
If you bought TMP stuff a few months ago, you are a dumbass who is terrible at shopping and you deserved to lose the money. They have been the absolute worst buy for over a year at least. You live, you learn- to ask other people what the fuck is up or do some kind of basic research before you spend that much money.
They’re never going to update. They never were going to update. The body has been in beta for 5+ years. This is common knowledge.
#11 How to assume the worst of everything Bingo.
Happy virtual-secrets Sunday All *sips on some coffee and gets typity typing* #2: Yes , Yes, Rose is a scammer…but, what I now really want to know is who is that “Mascot” that is now the face of Rose? Is he a Vlogger or something cause it looks like he would be funny. #11: There is a nice big grain of truth in that… but really why attack the “Thank Yous” there is no shame in being Nice and having Manners. #14: Uhm… how in the hell did you end up spending 30K on TMP? Most people probably spent maybe around 10-11K back when the bodies were 1st release and it was the only viable option for the Guys. But they have been dropping the ball for quite some time and other stores have taken over the market…. And then, when TMP didn’t Bento up their products pretty much became obsolete and not even worth the 500L. Clothing and Applier stores have hardly bothered to make stuff for TMP long before a “few months” ago so why are you complaining when you had much Better and, might I add, Cheaper options at your disposal when you bought the TMP? Stop whining over your buyer’s guilt! #17: Excuse me but who gave you the right to tell people that they have to conform to your standards of beauty? This is SL where we can look and be anything we damn well feel like. They aren’t demanding that you look like them so return the favor and keep your judgmental opinions of such things to private chats with your friends. #22: I’m a little up in the air about this one because when it comes down to it Blogging should be treated as a hobby because yeah you aren’t getting paid; but… Read more »
Joanne the Scammer. Big meme. You’re welcome.
I love Joanne’s videos hahahahahah
\o/ yay thanx!
I am so sick of seeing Mya belittling people left and right for no reason. She is honestly so vile to anyone she doesn’t ‘like’, and then tries to get other people to bandwagon her hatred. She’s the meanest person I’ve ever encountered. For what? Because she can? Because she’s bored? That mean girl shit is not cute, and she will turn on you at the drop of a hat if you don’t agree with her or inflate her ridiculous virtual ego. I also get sick of all the people who comment on her shit kissing her ass because they’ve befriended her based on her connection to Bob. Just be nice for fucks sake, it is not that hard.
I don’t think it’s “belittling” to point out the obvious. I think that term is incorrectly used in this sense. If you don’t have time to blog, don’t collect sponsors left and right – that should just be common sense, in my opinion – it’s rude, disrespectful, and greedy to the designers who are willing to take a chance on you. Also, while I don’t know Mya personally, I’ve seen her share things from bloggers she loves – she seems to truly enjoy giving credit where it’s due. I can tell from her posts that she’s just an opinionated person…that doesn’t make her entitled, it doesn’t make her vile, it means that she just doesn’t care what you think of her. I’m tired of people calling females in general “bitches” or “rude” or whatever for saying what they think without a smile on their face. Have you ever seen how she posts about her children, or Bob, or her cats for example? Anyone can tell from that alone that she has a giant heart and is a caring person. That doesn’t mean she’s required to care about your personal feelings towards her (or you in general) and it doesn’t mean that she needs to sit down and shut up, either. Also, I’m laughing so hard at the “Not A Fan” person & “Vicks” who also responded – you guys really think she’s doing anything detrimental to Bob’s brand? Hell no – because Vale Koer makes good mesh and that’s all that really matters at the end of the day to most people in SL. She also isn’t in charge of Bob’s bloggers, and has no hand in choosing them, so I don’t think it’s really relevant . You’re the ones sitting and complaining on SL Secrets about her attitude LOL
so true.. people who dont have a brand could never understand the blogger bullshit fully .. it should be cut and dry but there are some strange mfs in sl lol
@ME:Why even have bloggers if it’s causing you store owners so much agony? Create a blog yourself and blog your stuff . You and poor mya must be exceptionally unlucky to encounter such horrid bloggers as there’s so many amazing stores in sl who knows how to deal with bloggers within the group and they are never seen in public talking about bloggers like they are shit .
im telling you my love.. im not saying it being mean im telling you honestly how it is. lol .. its like running a fucking kindergarten with some of them. A lot of bloggers have so much beef with the next that designers become like a mediator things you wouldn’t even believe. no lie. lol seriously if you don’t have a business to understand what im saying then you’ll never understand and its pointless i explain to you. Most people are good but just like secrets have been around like 10 years why do you think that is??? a lot of weirdos.
I guess your brand can’t be doing well since you can’t get bloggers to do what they are supposed to. Ive said it repeatedly that if you have issues with bloggers do it in private. Everything else is for show. And if it’s stressing you out then don’t have bloggers. Whining on here and on Facebook like mya does is pointless. Successful stores doesn’t need to do that. And they don’t. Bob isn’t even complaining about bloggers , it’s just mya. And she doesn’t do anything . She’s just trying to stay relevant by coattailing on bobs success. So shes on Facebook mouthing off like a 5 year old. Anyway hope your store will become successful so you’ll get great bloggers one day.
its not about getting them to do what they are supposed to do.. ur missing the whole point on the ones who sponsor hoard.. if u sign up to blog for say 3 brands ur work load will be so different then if you keep on and are now at say 15 brands.. and when they can’t keep up the deisgner has to look like the jerk.. smh im dont with this convo… get a business.. and take that challenge.. and you not SHALL but WILL understand her point.
@me:Ok did you see the part where I said bloggers need to be checked if there’s an issue but not in public ? Start there . And since you’ve no idea what I do in sl you need to stop yourself. Successful brands can have issues with a blogger but guess what ,they are not here or on Facebook whining. They deal with it and move on. Imagine if mya wasn’t involved with vale koer at all. There would be no negativity surrounding that brand . Maintaining a good reputation is important if you care about the brand you’re representing. Instead of fighting those facts, change what causes the negativity. It’s that simple.
I’ll assume you’re new to SL. Being able to check bloggers is necessary at times. Doing it in a public forum however is low and she’s doing that for one reason only and that’s for show, for the attention she feel she’s getting. If you’ve ever worked a day in your life ,you’ll quickly realize ,that if your boss is professional they’ll talk to you in private ,if there’s a problem and not shout out in front of everyone what a useless employee you are. That’s very basic employer / employee knowledge. I think you’re misinformed if you believe that people can behave as trashy as they want and people will keep supporting them , not so. In time those stores will lose support and be excluded but again you must be new in SL or you would know that having a good reputation, having good customer service and treating people who works for you with respect is just as important in SL as it is in real life.
Definitely not new; I know enough to know a few very basic things that you obviously don’t. 1. She doesn’t check bloggers – half the time she isn’t even only talking about Vale Koer bloggers, but bloggers in general; I already wrote that she’s not in charge of them so that’s already a lack of reading comprehension on your part. 2. I don’t think that it’s trashy to state one’s opinion. She is not their boss; she doesn’t pay their bills, she doesn’t manage them, she has absolutely nothing to do with them so why the hell would she keep her mouth shut if she feels like they’re not doing anything except taking advantage of Bob/her/the store/other designers in general? Have you ever seen how much bloggers whine on social media? It’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen in my life and I’m neither a blogger nor designer, but I see enough to know that it’s typically the bloggers who get trashy across social media for the very reason you’re talking about – people will drag the fuck out of a designer on social media in a heartbeat, god forbid we treat everyone across the board with that same heinous hostility. 3. I’m sure you can draw whatever conclusions you want about having “good customer service,” – I wasn’t aware that her customer service left anything to be desired. If anything from what I’ve seen, her interactions with actual customers are always friendly and helpful, additionally “customer service” is not the same as how she interacts with bloggers who, let’s remind ourselves, are getting Vale Koer items FOR FREE. As for Maria – yes, she deletes you if you disagree, BECAUSE IT’S HER FACEBOOK. Why would ANYONE in their right mind keep someone on their facebook that they don’t… Read more »
Re. Mya not being able to keep people on her Facebook because they don’t share the same opinions, sorry but how old is this girl ? Having a difference of opinions is all part of being an adult . Maybe mya is underage come to think of it. That really would explain a lot .
The influx of immature college kids 18-22 years old is Growing on SL. You use to see it more during their break time , but now they are growing in numbers. I am not saying they are all bad but they have groups if you are 30 and over you are listed as an old fart. So anytime I see people whining or bitching here or on FB, I blow it off as these immature “young farts” ?
I’m referring to when she was dealing with bloggers and I’m referring to having good customer service in general. To me having great customer service issa good thing. So is having a good reputation. Mya is working hard at tearing down bobs good reputation. Even a blind person can see that. The amount of people feeling that she’s bad to keep around Vale koer is growing, that’s no coincidence. How she comes across on Facebook ,while being a representative for vale koer should matter to her ,if she really cared about bobs work. If you’re not new in SL ,you would’ve seen people remove their support from a brand ,because of how trashy the owners or other people associated with the store,behaved. And another thing , do you really think its just a coincidence that so many people among designers and bloggers are over her??Of course not.
So Alina, you’re saying that you can’t be freinds with someone that diesn’t agree with you. So you must live in a shell or something because honey, life is this. Not everybody is going to agree with you all the time and at some point you gotta grow up and learn how to listen, and maybe learn with other people opinion. Its very immature to stop talking to someone who thinks different than you, and totally stupid. Im sorry hun, its better to leave social medias then. And I bet that half of that people licking Mya’s ass on FB are laughing hard of her issues. Id still prefere an honest opinion, even if ts different than mine than having a bunch of fake followers, probably one of them even made this secret.
There used to be a time, where you can argue your side of an idea or thought against someone that didn”t think like you… then agree to disagree, shake hands and go eat lunch together. People aren’t that way anymore. Our society has become hateful against anyone they disagree with instead of respecting each others opinions and moving on like adults. We no longer have that type of society and it’s starting to severely spread on SL too. It’s sad, that this is how people are now.
I disagree. I used to think Mya was a nice girl until she started bitching all the time about bloggers and if you disagree with her then she deletes you. That doest mean she is opinionated, its more like a person with a shity attitude and a poty mouth.
She’s seriously so shitty, her attitude is so poisonous, I refuse to support her brand. Every single thing she comments on is laced with arrogance, anger, bite or sarcasm. Like, cheer the fuck up already. She’s a henious person and all the people who are friends with her are only friends because of the name she represents. Which she’s tanking.
#22- I think the OP makes a valid point.
If you know your kids baseball season is about to start, you work full time and are going to have an active real life, don’t pick up sponsors and don’t go collecting their shit if you’re not blogging it. Just because Mya is speaking up on the bullshit, doesn’t mean she’s the one who is entitled. There are plenty of bloggers out there living boring real lives who wouldn’t mind the opportunity to blog for their businesses.
I have not seen other stores hang out bloggers as She does. She’s unprofessional . Most stores will at some point need to check bloggers , but not in public . So this is where Mya shows her immaturity and how her boyfriends stores popularity has gone to her head. I feel sorry for the hard work bob puts into his work for her then to go and trash his good name. If he had a pair of balls he would keep her away from anything to do with his store.
Looks like he is missing a pair.
Re: #17: Well, it’s refreshing to see that people are making the same choices with mesh bodies that they made with system body. Makes mesh bodies feel a little less… mandatory.
#9 Hey fuckwad (He’ll get it.) Why don’t you reply to your messages instead of putting dirty laundry on a website like this?..Maybe its because your too afraid to be vulnerable and open up to someone. But I know exactly who you are because you were the only dude Id be talking to since My Split from my rl fiance. Your a coward,a flake. also proves my point to you that I really wasn’t talking to anyone else.
Guys lmao all my virtual-secrets ive ever had posted about me,were because I told people THE TRUTH. lmao. what a fucking wack job.
ooh……….. nevermind #9 fell under wtf is this irrelevant sh*t
Oh you poor baby.
You and I both know that once again you are playing the victim. You HATE being called out and your bitch fests every single time you get posted here just prove the people posting you right. Maybe if you were less of a massive cunt to people, they would stop posting you here.
Just a suggestion.
Oh and stop acting like your life is sooooo much worse than everyone else’s, this isn’t the suffering Olympics others are suffering too, and have just as much right to vent and talk about it. You were a SHIT friend to me, you treated me like dirt, you disrespected my mom and sisters, and were just a flat out cunt to people I care about. Get the fuck over yourself, take some time off from SL like you said you were going to fucking months ago and get yourself some fucking mental help god knows you need it.
You know I’ll never understand why people say things like “you need to get help“ or “you need to go to therapy and you’re fucking crazy and you did this and blah blah blah“ but when someone puts me on a site and start attacking me and harassing me over and over and over again. it’s suddenly OK, I will never ever say that I don’t play the victim. but when you don’t get heard enough and your misunderstood and your mistreated and your put down for being 100% true to yourself. Duh,of course I’m gonna act way that I’m acting. everyone is so in their own fucking World they can’t separate themselves & how impactful their words and actions and what they do to people . when someone goes through something like I have my entire fucking life. of course I’m going to treat people differently, I don’t understand how people can just up and say well you are a cunt and you’re a bitch, you’re this,your that. why? Is it because I’m being fucking honest and vulnerable and opening up to people? because that’s just who I am! why? like honestly why? the fuck am I wrong and then when everyone else does the same shit that I’m doing it’s not wrong ? get off my fucking dick about it. I will never ever deserve to be harassed and put down for having my mental problems and for being human. it’s not karma and it’s not right. I would never do it to anybody else. I’ve never ever ever ever put anyone on the stupid fucking website. because out of respect, it’s cyber bullying and it’s horrible to feel so fucking cornered all of the time.I came on SL to escape my shitty life and my abusive environment.… Read more »
# 10 And again, more proof that store needs to be shut down for the rip-fest it is.
IP Police closing is closing in, just watch how long that store is open, won’t be long that they take it down.
12) Both owners are rude and make you feel like you just interrupted them from doing something important when you visit, chicks parked AFK everywhere, won’t even greet you unless you pay. Fuck that man. no wonder you got robbed and ejected by the kink stinky scammers. Laughing Out Loud. I feel sorry for you. Good luck next time man!
You really typed Laughing Out Loud, and then have the nerve to say that you feel sorry for anybody.
It’s a escort spot, not a hangout. You want some in depth attention and carry on a full fledged conversation? Then pay for it. You want it for free? Go to a normal club. Again. It is a place full of escorts. What did you expect? Maybe don’t go there, or any other ho club with your 100L balance and maybe you’ll get what you’re looking for next time, dummy.
Lol you can respond to this but not any of the comments that actually point out that your club is full of broke free lance hos that actually would do anything for 100L?
Again, its a place full of three or four girls and the rest of the staff are girls who work at Kink on alts to have boards then work at other clubs on alts, dummies. So many of your staff are laughing at you on other accounts while you tip their jars in hopes that they’ll stay. “Every other club fucking sucks”.. thats why everyone laughs at you while you sit alone in Loseria, hoping some noob will believe your shit because at this point even you must know how stupid it all must sound.
I wouldn’t respond to the comments below either, it must be hard getting put in your place everytime by everyone.. especially for such a super domme like you ladies. Just ignore the meanies and they’ll go away, just keep arguing with this imaginary customer. 🙂
If you were a fucking Adriana Lima, I would hand you to the money right away, but you are NOT. So if you want to get paid, at least do a little effort and try to impress me with a simple hello or something. What do you expect, us men to spend money on someone we might not even like? Laughing Out Loud.
NO BACKDROP CITY POST AFTER 3 MONTHS FINALLY! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS
#22 leave Mya alone. She is riding her boyfriend popularity wave now their relationship is going well. When they break up ,again, she will be really quiet. Just think of the long line of couples where one of them had a popular store and their partner swam in the sea of fame . It is pure entertainment.
#6. Every time i see Rose in anyone’s plurk, i lose all respect for that person and anyone interacting with her. If you are enabling someone who put charity money in their savings account by allowing them to exist, you are just as much of a trash as she is. It’s time to start calling out the ones who have turned a blind eye to her actions and allow her to exist. Shame on all of you. Charities are for those in need, not some lazy bitch’s saving account.
#19. I have considered completely dropping out of any event Tyr is involved with. Profits on all of them have gone down and they are not worth the headache she causes. Also massive eyeroll when she picks on other people’s mesh work, she has no idea how awful her own work is.
From a designers point of view, I don’t understand why Tyr is being bashed so much in secrets, nor do I know her reason for leaving Uber. She’s the reason I got into the event, and I am not a huge brand, we’ve had only a couple of conversations and she was nothing but kind. That’s my humble opinion.
I resent event owners self-importance. They behave like a stars, totally being forget they are nothing without creators who pay them money. Rudeness, snobbery – other names for such pigs like Skye or Tyr or Elvira. Personally I am tired to feel like a schoolgirl who didn’t make her home tasks. I quit events which those snobby whores are owning. I prefer Tres Chic and Shiny Shabby and We love RP – owners always nice and adequate. As for Tyr – I saw nothing but rudeness or ignore from that ass. Such kind of event owners kill any desire to cooperate with. Also i am pissed off with new tradition to grab money for deadline prolonging. First they make stupid deadlines like 3 -5 days before opening – then collect money from those who want set up in reasonable time – not long before opening. Fucking owners try to have money on everything. Soon we are going to have taxes on air. By the way evens with such bitches go down because they do no affords to keep the light in. They live on old fame and think they are stars still.
Hello you pigs u are PAYED to be nice to creators. It is your job – promote and be nice. Or soon you ll stay alone!
You honestly sound like a failed designer who is only in 2nd tier events. Go fuck off and be salty elsewhere you low grade hack designer.
Why is everyone up tyrs ass all the time? idgi. she isn’t a nice person. may be people are scared of her.
#17 YOUR AN IDIOT WHO PROBABLY WHERES THE SHAPE AND SKI THAT CAME WITH YOUR MESH BODY!!!!! NOTHING IS WRONG WITH ANY OF THOSE WOMEN YOUR JUST A LOW LIFE WHO PROBABLY LOOKS LIKE A STICK FIGURE ON SL AND ROBUST ASF IN RL SEEK OUT A THERAPIST YOU HAVE DEEPER ISSUES GOING ON.
The funny thing about this avatars is that they are the first ones complaining about their clothes not fitting their bodies… and blaming designers for their clipping issues.
1. Don’t care for YOUR grammar and spelling.
2. Don’t care about how people want to dress their avatars. If they want to be a fucking furniture, let them.
3. Only problem is, there are people who will always judge others no matter what. Like you did in YOUR comment about stick figures.. I assume YOU ARE a plus sized person in game or something because the tone of YOUR comment.. kind of like YOU ARE offended with skinny people or some shit.
You’re* The irony here hurts.
shes not correcting handsintheair, shes correct the person using all caps, look they didnt spell wear right either, they used where.
Aww. Wow. I hope you feel as stupid as this was.
It’s actually your since you’re is for You are
… You and your 10 upvotes made my sunday. I’ll specify in the hopes you picked the wrong one, it’s the first “your”.
Your caps lock seems to be stuck
#2 Really? Still? Best revenge is silence. Crying over and over isnt gonna change the fact.
#7 100% Dead on! I have known her and this is her. Reminds me of a once great club long ago, owners acted the same…lost everyone, closed the club. Staff/clients are what keeps you IN business. Sorry that you are probably the same in RL. What a life!
Is that you Rose?
Mya is trash and an absolute bitch. I hope Bob realizes she’s bad for business soon.
I think he is too young to see what is going on . I hope his friends can give him some sort of advice on store suicide ,by fame hungry girlfriend .
You could be right. She’s definitely wearing the pants in that relationship. He is letting her control vale koer now and It wasn’t like that before.
Nope, he always defends her. But i agree , she desperately needs to shut her little potty mouth before customers start to avoid their brand. Shes crushing Bob’s empire little by little without even realising it. But what can you expect from a potty mouth romanian gypsy girl? I never met a decent Romanian in my life, ever. All of them have been bitchy like Mya
#17 – their aesthetic is not yours, and that’s OK.
Can you imagine being so heated by the way someone else chooses to spend their recreation time? Lordt.
12 – Isn’t the point of findom to get off on being forced to spend money by a Domme then humiliated? I’d say getting ejected counts.
17 – See no problem with the chick you think looks like Fionna
You should have known they’d do the unrealistic body parts BS – people put prim stuff like that on system bodies years before
Baby hairs are a PoC thing, not “pubes on your forehead”. They look good when done right.
Girl has a long face and…? I’ve seen people with huge eyes and bulbous heads who look more like that alien.
# 17 – LOL! I agree with you. Apparently the person who posted this secret don’t have baby hairs or hair lines in real-life. Some are a bit much, I agree but get one that’s decent looking. God. You know what, the person is probably bald or can’t grow hair or something so they get jealous. Tsk, tsk.
About 5: Again the same non sense acusations…the same blah blah blah…bored, bored bored…You really need a new target to attack because every week the same shits…Have you tried to do some adult things????
Did you ever heard that Sex makes people happy? So go get some of it and be happy, because happy people dont bother other people!
Did you ever heard? <——- just needed to point that shit out lmao
Oh so you were NOT one of the hundreds that got the ‘demo’ that was actually a free outfit? So sorry you lost out!! SL sex makes you happy? Good! Free stuff makes us happy!! Woot!!!
FreeStuff, are you really stupid or do you do on purpose to look like one?
No one said Virtual Sex … I said Sex … Real sex!
Oh, and I dont need to run after free stuff …
When I want something in SL, I simply buy it!
I’m sorry if you cant get more than free stuff!
I hope you’ve made good use of what you got!
It’s sad that there are people like you who take advantage of others’s mistakes to win something.
There is no such thing as Sex on SL. All it is , is a desperate person wanking on a computer chair. Lol
That’s why I said Sex…not SL Sex lol
I can’t believe anyone demo’d that shit. Her shoes, clothes and ads are so fucking basic. I can’t figure out where her bitchiness and arrogance come from, because she certainly didn’t earn it with that shit store of hers. Seriously, can’t figure out why that shit was even demo’d.
Wow. Seriously?…. bunch of Jelly Ho-nuts. You didn’t get the cute outfit? You can still go buy it ya know.
I agree with you. If maybe she had a better attitude, some personality and less nasty friends she might have made it. Unfortunately it is too late for her. Like you said: She certainly didn’t earn it and her stuff is truly shitty!!
#7 to the person who wrote the secret, get a life,, if you think Juicy is so toxic, then stop coming in the club checking what’s going on alts, mind your own “business” and stay away from the Bishes.
As someone who works there I have never been treated like shit by her, can’t say the same about Clover and Emma. Those two “managers” were always snooping around trying to get dirt that doesn’t exist on me. Glad they are gone. 🙂
Let’s say I am sure as managers they were told by the owner to keep an eye on you and if they are gone I am 100% sure it was because they wanted to, the funny thing is you make a drama out of it when they were told to keep an eye on you by the owner herself the irony lol
As said ex-manager your talking Victoria what I did was talk to someone I’ve known for years, before you fucking knew him so get over yourself , me and clo wasn’t always snooping around…. paranoid much we was doing our jobs what we was asked to do keep a eye on the club and bishes which you would understand if you was a manager yourself . So anything else you wanna say about me or clo put on your big girl pants and say it to our faces, at the end of the day it’s a fucking game get over it.
I am way over it, You are the ones that were displeased with my comment and kept on insulting me because of it. 🙂
Emma and clover? As someone who worked there, they were nothing but nice and respectful . They were the sweetest. Can’t say the same about Juicy- who never even bothered to come around and meet the girls working for her.
Well I felt the opposite way.Happy you had/have good time being around them, I didn’t.
Well you still have 2 best friends there to keep an eye on you so GL you will need it ?
Managers snooping for dirt?! It’s FOR Juicy, naive twat!
It is too bad you can’t make a difference between the owner being on you for something you actually did, and two best friends on management team trying to get you fired/cause drama because you did someone, or did something that one of them did not like.
lols ~ you’ll learn soon enough!!! Everyone does!! IF your doing something you shouldn’t, does it really matter who calls you out manager/owner… Sweetheart, I worked there long enough to know how that shit works. If they got their eye on you, obviously you’re doing something or you’re a paranoid twat.
If I do something wrong it wouldn’t matter who calls me out on it. The thing is, I don’t and when people like them cause issues/drama it affects my business, not theirs. So suck it up and accept that I did not like them and their methods. Enough said.
LOLs – clearly, you need to do more sucking and less talking, if business is taking a toll!!!!!!!!
Did you lose your adult card somewhere? You sound like you are still in junior high
I do it in between your poor attempts to insult me. LOL
Can I just say thanks Victoria much apoteciated ?
Maybe if you actually knew this Clover & Emma you wouldn’t talk shit about them
I felt disrespected by them on many occasions, so if you call it “talking shit about them” then so be it.
I don’t get number 8. Are you trying to say its not for Catwa???
!Imabee made 2 identical skins..
#4 – I think Onsu is Yummy/Fashionably Dead/Tableau Twins not TMP. If you look at Onsu’s quirky ads; quirky ad arrangement (side tables), quirky use of cartoony old people and dogs in human clothing. It all looks like existing Yummy ads, Tableau gacha cat paintings and 2007 old people hand-painted skin. Like TMP, the Tableau twins also alt brand by theme like the old Paper Couture. I could be wrong but this is my theory. — I hope Crimson Call is indeed TMP coming back to SL after their rumored legal battles with each other. Their clothing and concept are amazing quality. Their male mesh heads need to be burned though. xD
#14 – It’s called a Sale/Clearance Prices. Suck it up.
2 had me LMAO!
3 omg, this shit is hilarious too
5 as a creator, this was a pretty shitty thing to do, all creators make mistakes sometimes….just the other day moon sent the fatpack of her new hair to her group instead of her bloggers, get off your highhorse.
14 if you spent 30K on TMP just a few months ago, considering there is bento out there, and tmp has like NO support…then you are an idiot. Walking around in your face? you seriously bought a TMP head when there is sooo many others out there better…YOU are the dumbass…
17 Katena body is disgusting and gross…..i agree there
22-Since when did blogging become a “job”? Last time I checked,cause I am a blogger myself, we do this as a hobby. If she adds sponsors, let her be. It’s her blogging, not you. If you was my sponsor, I would drop you instantly cause of how you are talking about bloggers.
Why isn’t it a job as most time that is 90% of my time spent in SL working on a blog post and seriously am not sure how some get by with all the sponsors I see on the Blog as most do have a required amount of posts for each week or month and if you have a lot of sponsors not sure how you are keeping up ~ most use Blogotex now that if you dont finish in time your account is suspended and good bloggers do work hard that actually it is not a hobby for them as the payment is clothes, items or whatever their sponsors promote. A tad harsh possibly but nothing like have seen from owners of PocketGacha & Kraftwork that attacked each of their bloggers for using BDC and their words were far more vicious and accusing
it isn’t a job because you’re not getting that paper. if you spend all day every day on blog posts for free clothes, that’s on you….. No one else to blame there really.
You’re not getting that paper? LOL YOU’RE GETTING FREE ITEMS. That’s the trade off. It’s a barter system! You promote them, they give you their shit. That’s their “paper” to you, you idiot.
Am not putting blame on anyone and just because you are not getting $$ it is a barter system this for that as in RL they do it as well and please ask those that do barter their trade for something else that they do not considered having a job. Am far from complaining about what I do in SL as if I did not enjoy learning how to show off an item or an article I would not be doing it
I see nothing wrong with those faces. I’d rather have different shapes body and face wise than looking like everyone else.
It is a hobby, but as a blogger it is your job to blog the products you take from designers. Sponsors have the right to complain about bloggers if they don’t do what they agreed to when they applied for the job.
mya is a dick , she just rides off her bfs sl fame and thinks shes something special , without him no one would even know who you are (or care)
12. Come on ladies… you can do better than this “STOP FINDOMME” looooool. You’re really going to post a secret about yourselves pretending to be a client? Nobody at the Kink skybox is earning 96k in a session.. there’s a reason why none of your tippers are listed, the only staff you can keep are your management, and the management/owner are forced to stand around Loseria all night and day in attempts to meet clients instead of working their own club. Didn’t you embarrass yourselves enough a few weeks ago and claim you were above SL Secrets? Welcome back I imagine it gets boring up there
This MUST have been a client posting this as IF the Kink girls would have time to fabricate ANYTHING they are just TOO busy making so much money! The poor guy didn’t get swindled enough, he fell short of 100K so that qualifies for an instant eject right there!
Come on! Really! They are soooooo busy making the money roll I mean ATTEMPTING to make money! How could you even think they can fabricate this? Bahahahahaha
Haterade is delicious; keep sippin’…
Who says “haterade” anymore lol
Same type that still says, “hooker’ lol
i just went to this place after reading this and dont get why there is just a girl standing around probably afk they didnt even respond to my hello… looking at some of their pics the only 96k they would see is 96k calories… next time ill bring a donut in my pocket lol they might show some attention
Keep watching what we do. Because we most certainly are not watching you. Stay broke, stay mad, stay weird enough to pay attention to where we go on the grid, we won’t notice.
Nobody would’ve cared enough to mention you ladies if you hadn’t pulled this desperate stunt. Theres a big difference between a few laughs at the fact that the owner and managers having to stand around other sims to get customers because your club is dead and “paying attention to where you go on the grid”. That makes people say, “damn, they can’t be doing too well” then there’s a new topic of conversation. Don’t inflate your importance or get worried that anyone is monitoring your actions on Second Life. I never see the owners of other clubs when out visiting the spots, just Kink girls standing around like free lancers.
What is super funny about ur comment is the fact that you don’t see other owners but yet KINK is one of the most successful clubs… seems like “hanging out” or advertising as it’s called is working. Do some research before you try to be salty. ?
On.. what.. fucking.. planet lol
Maybe they have a second club on IMVU or something that is actually successful because on Second Life, by no measurement, are they successful.
Broke ass whores who claim to be better than everyone else loool we all remember your poster that was at EO and other spots saying “Come to Kink because everywhere else fucking sucks!” Please don’t get me started calling you out on how you treat your few customers, what you gossip behind their backs and whose client’s webcams you are screenshotting & sahring with every staff member!
That sounds like the real tea. I’d much rather read that secret next week js 😉
Everywhere else does fucking suck. Unless you like playing with men pretending to be women. You seem bitter.
You really have the nerve to say that? And accuse every clubs staff member of being a male? Excuse me, but where did your staff come from? Did it drop from the sky? NO. They all came from other clubs, that you claim have male staff posing as females. loool Really, open your damn eyes and accept that you are wrong. If it really did suck everywhere else, why do I encounter your owners, managers and staff always hanging out at Loseria?Excuse me, not hanging out or having sessions with anyone, they just stand there alone with their tags on trying to promote that sinkhole you call a club (it’s agency no more), so please don’t tell me how it is established and how it is better than everywhere else.
There couldn’t be a more lame place to try and meet anyone than Loseria, but you’re clearly there to study/observe/take notes on what other people are doing, rather than…hanging out with or having sessions with anyone. Sorta creepy, but we all spend our SLs in our own way.
I agree about Loseria I normally get teleported there from time to time which is where I get to laugh at the Kink girls doing there recruiting/begging. No notes being taken, I just remember what I laugh at 😀
If you understood anything about marketing, then you would understand why people make appearances in other places sporting a tag, but you don’t understand much of anything…anything at all.
Are you guys done? Don’t you all get this? KINK is a rehabilitation center of all the clubs around SL. It’s a place for all that need to Live a normal and productive Life.
Kink is a prim skybox filled with ugly Bea photos of crusty old escorts that would do anything for 200L. Find them at Loseria pretending to dominate subs (aka themselves on alts) lol. The only pigs they know are when they accidentally cut their cams on. But sure, a rehabilitation center is a nicer way to phrase it lol.
Everyone has forgotten the main point to this discussion, a guy got ripped off!! If that is normal for you just to be productive then you are seriously fucked up!
It’s also a bit strange that the person who posted the secret hasn’t said a word….
Coz there was no guy being ripped off in the first place lol
So what is the whole point to this secret then? To me, scammers = ripped off.
Theres a difference between “making an appearance” and needing to spend hours in a place because your business attracts NO customers so you have to rely on other businesses. #Hashtagsdontworkonthiswebsite #doyounotunderstandsocialmedia #didyouseeyoungcoolkidsusinghashtagsandwantedtotryit
I do know a lot about marketing, but there is a diffrence between marketing and desparation loool you have dozens of boards at Loseria, your girls are exclusive, you wouldn’t need so much more advertisement if your sinkhole is doing that great, just sayin lol
Didn’t you embarass yourself enough in the past few weeks, Shar? #DESPARATE #ATTENTIONWHORE
> claims that everywhere else fucking sucks
> accuses others of being bitter
i cant with you dumb hos ??
#22 dying @ ‘blogging is a job’ good luck paying your rl bills with crappy videogame clothing lol ??
My two-cents in being a designer…. I think SL blogging is bullshit IMO. It’s nothing like a “real” blog. Real blogs give in-depth details and reviews about the items, the pros and cons and if they are worth the money you will spend on them. Letting someone pass you some free shit just so you can take a half way pretty photo of it (most of the times the photo is photoshopped so the consumer isn’t even looking at a real product photo) and pasting a few links on where to buy it… is not blogging. That more so is called advertising. Even if someone gives a designer an unfavorable review, it’s a real review, If you get a bad review…it’s simple…step up your shit or lower your price point. So why should I pay a 3rd party to basically do what I already do…. take pics of my creations and post them on social media with links…..?
Like all things it is a SL JOB but the pay is not $$ geeeez and again with the “video game” reference – holy shit please tell me where this SL is considered a game…most umm video games have goals, rules, winners/losers and yes we have a ton of losers in SL but where is it truly defined as a video game ~ like Halo, or WOW or other video games that I would pick up my controllers and play hmmm and if it is so crappy why are you here?
So I’ve been reading all this back & forth of Hobby or Job… I’m not sure about other bloggers but when I 1st started it was a Hobby I picked up because I wanted to make pretty pictures and learn how to use Photoshop & well SL is a great medium to start learning how to do those things. But, this is an expensive hobby that can take a toll on your SL wallet so taking on sponsors to lessen the strain on funds is perfectly logical.
For me it’s still a really fun Hobby… and one I work hard at and take a lot of pride in as I learn how to get better with each picture I do. Sponsors for me are “Icing on the Cake”…. so I’m very picky on what sponsors I’ll take on because I only will apply to ones that inspire me and I would be buying from if they weren’t a sponsor. Maybe whether it is a Job or Hobby is just a mindset of each blogger? I prefer to keep it as a Hobby where I can explore self expression and artistic creativity. The moment it becomes a “Job” and is no longer fun it would loose all meaning for me to do it and I would probably quit all together to devote my time to a new hobby. That’s just me though!
Also bloggers need to stop acting like SL gods and celebrities, no one cares you can take pictures…..
It is a sl job.. if you choose to do it instead of a rl job, it’s your problem, but designers work hard for their products and if you want them for free instead of paying like everybody else, you gotta do the job you applied for. But of course we all want the benefits without the obligations. SL is just a game and shouldn’t be took seriously only when it’s in our advantage right? right 🙂
It is not a job, it is merely an exchange of one item free stuff to be listed and featured in your blog / photo. It is a pictorial free advert you provide basically. A creator could make a lot of money off your post, exchanging the product he gave off you for a good amount easy . So a numeric return would not be out of the question, if the creator was making a good deal of money which they do. But if you see none of that as a wage, its not a job in any form.
Blogging is hobby. You made a choice to put out free advertisements for a designer in exchange for free goods. You are not making any sort of living off of decorating a toon in sl. I’d never cheapen my valued time into making free advertising for someone else’s paychecks. Lol.
You made a choice, exactly. You chose to blog their products if they sent them to you for free and as any decent human being, you should respect your part of the deal. The fact that the designer earns money is irrelevant in this discussion.
My point is that it’s not a “job” since only one party is getting paid for the services rendered. If both parties enter the agreement then either party can terminate if the agreement isn’t being kept. Both parties have an out.
Here is the thing. As a blogger, you need stuff to blog, so without sponsors to send them to you, you would have to buy them yourself. SO, without a sponsor, not only that you would not make any money, but you would have to actually spend money.
Call it whatever you want, it is a trade of services and it is not fair to take something and not offer the promised service back. Designers work 90% of their time on the products you got for free.
My point is, if you don’t like not being paid, stop blogging, but if you want and like to blog don’t complain about designers being paid for the products they make and sell. You knew you aren’t being paid when you applied for the 50 stores too. No one begged for your services.
You all focus on Mya saying it was a job because you know that’s the only thing you can debate. For sure logic goes out on the window when Susan needs to hate on someone.
Let’s also address this thing about the word sponsor. This is how sponsorships work. You endorse a product and the company pays you with money or equipment to help you become better in addition to free product. You all are not being “sponsored”.
I use the words that are used in sl.. if you want to debate the meaning of those words it is up to you but that doesn’t change the fact that once you agreed to take something for free in order to blog it, you have to blog it. Without those designers giving you free shit you would have to pay for your hobby 🙂 But please Lourdes, just debate word meanings so you can be right 🙂
Then let’s get down to what this is really about and what is not about. I’ll try to keep it simple 1. Blogging is not a job. You do not get paid with RL money. The item you receive do not have any value other than what LL determines. The items that you receive are no more than 1s and Os and are not legal tender is any country on this planet. 2. Bloggers in a store’s blogger group enter an agreement with the store owner(s). The terms of that agreement are established at the beginning of the contract (and I use the term very loosely). Both parties enter in good faith. Both parties should keep to the terms of the contract. However, neither party has any legal standing. But they do have the choice to leave at any time and go on about their business. At no time, did I say that either party should renege on the agreement. The ethical thing to do is to stick to the agreement. Also, the professional thing to do (but we all know professionalism is a rarity in SL) is for the store owner to remove the bloggers who don’t stick to the agreement silently. There is no need to go on whining about bloggers who don’t do what you want. Remove them and move the fuck on. There are 10 other bloggers that are more than happy to climb over corpses for free pixels. 3. OMG you mean if they blogger didn’t get the free pixels they would have to buy them themselves. God forbid. Let me tell you something. I started blogging 9 years ago, and did it for 7 years. When I first started, it was very rare to just be handed free stuff right and left. Most of… Read more »
1. The things you receive have value because people pay rl money for them. The designers spend a lot of time on them so of course they aren’t keen to just give them away for nothing. You talked about videogames.. those are pixels too so do these have no value as well? 2. Maybe you don’t know but there is a thing called blogotex where you take only the things you want to blog and it is all fine if you leave and let the designer know that. If you leave after you took a lot of products and didn’t blogged them it is very shitty of you. 3. I don’t understand why you are so amazed by that. If designers don’t send you stuff, you would have to buy in order to practice your hobby. It is nothing wrong with that, and good for the ones who do it because they don’t owe anyone anything. But many prefer not to spend money to blog things. 4. Please feel free to tell us what words should we use because of course you are smarter then the rest of us and know better. Whatever you call it is very simple, if you can’t meet the expectation don’t apply to blog for 50 stores. 5. This is a fat lie. The biggest the store the bigger the expectations, because of course bigger stores have more bloggers to choose from so they can afford to have higher expectations. Also VK is one of the biggest clothing stores in sl 🙂 6. Bloggers are free to buy stuff and not apply to blog for any store in particular.. again if you can do that and prefer to buy your own shit, good for you, you also don’t have any responsibility to anyone then.

1. They made pixels and multiplied pixels.There is no money loss when you duplicate the pixels and give them to someone else. The justification that the person you gave it too would have bought it has many fallacies. Many times when a blogger doesn’t blog something its because they don’t like it. That would also mean they wouldn’t have bought it. So no money lost. Yes I mentioned video games. I fail to see your point. Lots of video game bloggers get paid in RL money. So yes they can call it a job. 2. Yes blogotex. I forgot about them. Is it shitty of them? Does blogtext give out demos? Perhaps the item that was pictures wasn’t of a quality the blogger felt comfortable blogging. And again like I tried to say before. I never said and I’m not saying now that people should not fulfill their end of the bargain. But for some reason you can’t seem to grasp that? 3. Its called sarcasm. I think I see why this conversation is going nowhere with you. 4. Once again like I said. Its an agreement both parties have to do their part or end the agreement. Saying it again. 5. Unfortunately it is the truth. We obviously have very different idea on what a big store is in SL. You never see the actual big name stores on social media whining about bloggers. The smaller the store the bigger the entitlement. Still in that small minded mentality that giving away pixels equals lost income. No it doesn’t. 6. Again never said that they had to. I have said from the start that both parties can end the agreement if they the agreement is not Once again for the 100th time which you still don’t get. At no time… Read more »
1. You said the sl clothing have no value because they are just pixels, I said videogames are pixels too and therefore do they have no value as well? You don’t get what I keep saying either. Designers have a limited nr of blogger spots. Usually they have a blogger search and they may choose you instead of someone else who may have actually loved to blog for them. So even tho the pixels are just duplicated, they could have been sent to someone else, but they weren’t because of you. 2. Yes, it is shitty to take something without offering something in return. (again it seams it is very hard for you to understand decency and common sense). 3. You failed to understood or completely ignoring my point. You understood think it’s a travesty to buy your own things to blog which is obviously not what I was saying. Ofc no matter what, you will understand whatever you want and this is why the conversation goes nowhere. 4. And I said I agree with you about sl blogging not being a real job but you kept talking about how bloggers are not paid. I don’t care they are not paid, they choose to do it, no one force them. AGAIN they can always spend months/years to learn how to do things and sell shit as well. Apparently you only read what you want to. 5. Big means being popular and having many sales. I don’t know what idea you may have for big stores but it’s pretty simple and universal. 6. Why shouldn’t she whine on her own personal fb page? She didn’t used the blogger name and she didn’t posted on the VK fb page, so from what I am aware, small or big, just because you owe… Read more »
I had a whole reply set up then deleted it by accident. I was editing it in word. Anyway We can agree to disagree though I think half the issue is that you aren’t comprending what I’m saying and no sense is arguing with that you think I said.
However I did want to address one thing: the whole naming and shaming thing. In 2012 there was event that happened every year. It was for charity. It was popular lots of stores big and small and in between participated. Bloggers got early access and a few stores sent review copies but it was for charity. Back then it was recognized if an item was for charity don’t be greedy and expect review copies. Anyway several bloggers including myself got access. There were requirements that you blog 2 or 3 items over the course of the event. There weren’t ridiculous, reasonable. Well at the end of the even the organizer who was new to organizing for this event, previous years it was handle by someone else, decided to do a blog post on the events blog post naming and shaming every single blogger that did not fulfill the requirement. Some people were wrongly named, one lady I think was in the hospital (or said she was). The backlash was unreal. The people involved never recovered the event not nearly as big as it used to be. The people involved Frolic Mills and his assistant who I won’t name. The event Fashion For Life one of the Relay for Life events.
So yeah sure go ahead name and shame bloggers. Just don’t expect to walk away untouched.
Yes we can agree to disagree.
I understand where you are coming from though and as I said I agree with you on many things. I don’t think bloggers should kill themselves over blogging or do it to the point it is not fun, because yes, it is not worth it if they don’t have fun. This is why I said they should just not apply for so many designers just to get their free stuff because sl is not the best place to be greedy 🙂 sl clothes are not the best thing to loose your rl time for, but to each their own.
I think the issue is that we disagree on one thing and argue about all things. You say she shouldn’t complain, I say she is in her right to do it, and that’s it.
Reading my comments I see I may have been a bit salty and I am sorry for that. You may be a very lovely person and there is actually no point in fighting with you over someone else’s drama over sl clothes lol. Writing that down it truly makes me realize how ridiculous it is and I don’t want to leave the discussion on a negative note. It is always good to hear other’s opinions and be civil about it. 🙂
After reading your long reply Lourdes I will agree for the most part what you are trying to convey as one of those bloggers that have been blogging for 5 years yes I will agree not all stores just handed out their goodies also am not one of the cough cough top bloggers who names would spark recognition nor do I clamber to be and that is fine with me. If I am asked to blog for a store I do my own research as to what they make or build and not being snobby but I am picky on who I blog for and what. For me I guess that in fairness as I have slowed down some on blogging that yes I have a RL and SL blogging is more a hobby. Did not become a blogger to get free stuff as I do have my own SL budget to buy clothes, etc. Blogging to me is fun just like SL is as well and when SL becomes not fun or blogging becomes boring I will just log and leave. One last comment on blogging as I see it is just turning into purely an image-fest without actually telling their followers or store owners if they liked it or not just put on the outfit and take a pic nothing more and credit. Not saying the images are not fantastic but for me is that truly blogging. IMO honestly no especially if you look up Websters definition of blogging. Oh am sure my haters will be out in force on this one huh ~
I totally get what you are saying. I never accepted random notecards to blog events or stores unless I knew of them before hand. I hated being added to someone’s blogger subscribo at random. Then you have that awkward moment of not wanting to be rude and ask to be removed. I know I sound like an old bitch. But its true. Back in the day blogging was about showing the product truthfully. Showing how it would look as you were wearing it on the grid. Some bloggers liked to give an honest review about the items. But you know how it is in SL if you aren’t kissing ass then you need to keep your mouth shut. Some store owners could not take criticism in an honest critique. I remember looking forward to Gogo’s honest reviews on skins. That came to a crashing end because she got so much hate thrown her way. So now if you do talk in your blog you had better say something nice about everything you are wearing or else. I do like some of the talent I see in the pictures that people produce. But most do not truthfully portray the product. As time went on I stopped using blog pics on flickr to find new releases. Most of the time what they are wearing doesn’t remotely look like what you are buying. The photos have been altered so much the product is something else. Then on top of the blogging and meeting the requirements you have to hustle on flickr to get 500K+ views per picture. I remember when the first event required this. There was outrage Then folks just fell in line. Gotta get those free pixels. So there I am at work hustling on flickr on my RL job’s lunch… Read more »
Agree with you 100% and for that as a blogger that I will never be one of those top rated bloggers because I will never wear something I dislike or doesn’t fit and getting an invite to blog doesnt mean to me that I will jump on it. Along with the fact that my followers for my blog are not up in the thousands like others but I rather not have to kiss ass while doing what I like. Yes some designers will ask for requirements on flickr and was turned down due to that fact but I have a fairly thick skin that oh well and move on. I have fun as a blogger – when it stops being that will quit. I have enough stores, events that it keeps me busy as basically am not in SL as much as I used to. As regards to the flickr pics a lot of designers will state do not edit the image so you cannot even recognize along with the use of Blogotex that keeps track of bloggers for them and will suspend accounts if they are not compliant. That is why vlogging is getting popular and I cringe listening to this one vlogger that her voice is like nails on a chalkboard and after 2 minutes I just turn it off and stopped wasting my time listening to her.
Half of SL doesn’t understand the concept of the real definitions of simple words…like ‘jobs’ because they don’t have one. So of course it’s easy to believe they don’t understand the real definition of sponsorship either.
I didn’t want to say that, but I thought the idea of needing $$ to exchange for goods was a simple enough comment.
Sometimes I get tired of being tactful, lol 🙂
I agree that you need to be blogging, you volunteered for the job when you signed up. It may be a hobby to you but it’s a business to the people you are getting it from. It’s their time and their money, their products. You have to respect that.
However, I don’t agree with Mya’s way of speaking about it, creators need to be professional too. Bloggers should be doing what they signed up for.
So, kind of on both sides of this issue. You may not get paid monetarily, people expect volunteers who sign up to do services to do as they promised. Bloggers should o.
I just want to know.. do you expect to get free stuff and do nothing in return? is that it? I don’t get exactly what your guys logic is
Actually no it is not a job. It’s a hobby. Bloggers offer FREE advertising. In exchange for FREE advertising they enter into an agreement with certain bloggers in exchange for FREE items. Bloggers make store owners money but most bloggers don’t get paid a dime. Before you say they get paid in the free items. That is not payment it’s a trade, an exchange of services.
Yes but the store is giving them items that if they were not a blogger they would be paying for and a lot of stores pass out new stuff weekly and actually in the RL world it also takes place graphics designer might design a site for a coffee company in trade for free coffee for such and such amount of time so the graphic designer is not doing a job just because he might be getting zero dollars in exchange for coffee, food and what not?
As I said earlier. Getting some pixels in exchange for 90% of your time is not payment. Can you pay your bills with these pixels? No. Any graphic designer in RL with an ounce of sense is not going to just take goods in exchange for creating promotional material unless it’s a favor for a friend or associate.
Its the main reason I don’t blog anymore. All the rules and the work for what?? Pixels. Sorry no I have a job, don’t need another one that doesn’t pay. I will not work that hard for something that isn’t paying my bills. But that’s me. You all can slave for pixels and justify it however you like. But calling it a job?? That is laughable at the least foolishly delusional at the worst. Maybe you can pay for your next PC upgrade with your blogging job. Oh wait…
Yet here you are supporting this pixel site full of turd like comments with retards posting all over. Fucking retard.
yes, but while you get the free items you agree on blogging and promoting them. If they don’t do that, it means you don’t exchange services, you just give away free stuff.
Even if you do something as a hobby, it doesn’t mean you are free from any obligation or above the rules. When you apply to blog for a store you basically ask them to give you their products for free and take the obligation to blog them. So yes, the designer is more then entitled to complain about someone who took something from them and didn’t offered anything in return.
“yes, but while you get the free items you agree on blogging and promoting them. If they don’t do that, it means you don’t exchange services, you just give away free stuff.”
I think it’s funny that is being disliked when it’s basically what a blogger’s job is lol It seams to me I was right and we just want free stuff and cry about it when we are called out for it 🙂
Being a job or not I believe its kinda rude the way she speaks about bloggers every now and then. Respect should come from all sides.
11. The reason why we say thank you for the awards is to be polite and acknowledge that they acknowledged us. It’s a thing called manners.
“PhotpragherGirl” spellcheck is a thing, use it lmao Too busy clicking pink stars for attention to notice!
You truly are an ASS just like the Spell Nazi and the GRAMMAR NAZI we also now have to truly watch things what if that is how she wanted her name to be MISSPELLED is that such a big fucking deal with you that you call her out on it OMG get a fucking life Derp and move on btw maybe you should check on her flickr pics as she can spell however but most of her pics would give her A+ and you a E- for being a jerk
dude, please….at least put commas in there somewhere…its soo hard to read what you write…
then skip over it dude as it wont hurt my feelings as another grammar nazi appears – seriously commas or semi colons irk you AND as I said before am not here for a grammar lesson nor do I care
Hey Derp, people make mistakes, sorry I spelled photographerGirl wrong. *gasps* As for attention on Flickr, I don’t ask for the awards, I don’t ask for the followers, that’s totally up to whomever wants to follow me, like my pictures, or give me an award. I just like to take photographs and put them out there for others to enjoy and see. I’m not sorry that I have manners and do the polite thing by thanking people for taking time out of their day to send awards or comment on my photograph. What would you like us to do instead of thanking them? Want me to ask them how’s the weather? Here I’ll even use my sl name so you can find my photos and maybe you can appreciate art for what it is…art.
Come on, these are all spot on, it’s all about attention on flickr, grabbing it and trying to get more. Never did so much shit get so much attention in the history of humankind lol
Hey Cunt, if you don’t miss them so much why are you leaving a SL Secret for them? Its probably more the case they’re happy they left your front bottom behind and don’t miss you at all.
Some good secrets this week!
Keep it up bitches
