Correct ways to contact a creator if you need to.

Most creators write at their profile how to contact with them. Some say do not speak to me speak to my manager. Some say no im only notecards. If those seems rude to you it does not matter, if you need their help follow their rules.

Always no matter what, write in a polite way so you get the help you need and always follow their rules on how to ask for their help.

If you have pay for something and you do not have it try first the redelivery. If it is from their shop try there, if it is from marketplace it has a redelivery there too.

If you need any kind of help for something you pay for- send them your prove of your payment and the exactly name of the item.  The money prove can be found if you login to sl web page and see where is says Home then Account and it has an arrow click it and then chose from there the Transaction History, that’s where you can see what you pay for.

Do not waste their time by saying I need help without saying exactly what the problem is and what item is for and without showing, you have pay for it first.

Do not scream or threat them or be rude you will only get them mad and they will not help you.

Always try the demo first always. Some reasons are not going to be refunded because you can see them in the demo.

Always read the picture vendor and their rules before you buy and at marketplace always read the description to see what you are getting before you buy.

If they have a mail box at their shop use it too even if you have send a notecard. Sl eats if you have many message in one day eats most of them.

Give them time to login and speak to you, we all have our real life and so many things can come up and make us unable to login for days.

If you do not get any help after waiting for 2 weeks and you have send 2 times your notecard in case its gone (one each week)and went to the shop to see if they have a mail box too, then write your bad review. NOT BEFORE YOU DO ALL THOSE THINGS = you will be the rude person if you do without trying to talk to them first.

 

Do not take out your negative feeling on them go for a walk, throw cold water on your face first, calm down.

Yes, they are some creators that will treat you rude with no reason just because they are rude people or get their bad day on you. Just do not shop from them and leave one star saying they talk to you so rude and move on. Do not let it make your day bad.  Let karma do its job on them not on you!!:DDD

Boards that give gifts, what are they, how they work.

In sl you can find many different ways a gift is given to you. That’s why I am going to try and explain some of those ways so you can know how to play and win!:DD

There are Lucky letter or lucky chairs. The diversity is that Lucky letters boards you click on them and chairs you need to sit on them when your name letter comes in order for you to win the gift.

Both do the same thing: they have time to when the next letter will come out, they both show letters, both have gifts and picture of the gift you can win.

Now, when a letter comes it has to be the first letter of you first name not your last name. Example: my name is kalliopi Ziplon so if a board or a chair has the letter K all I need to do is run to click on the board or sit on the chair before someone else does that has the same first letter than me because only one gets it the first one the fastest one.

Some boards or chairs they may ask you to wear a specific group in order to win if your letter comes up.

In some, you can see numbers because some people use a number to their first name but not all of them have that.

In some shops when the time is out and a new letter comes out the gift change too. If they have many gifts in them, they may be set to come out in a random way or in an order way.

 

Lets go Midnight Mania boards.

To those boards you may need to wear a specific group.

On the board, you will see a number and then this symbol \ and another number or zero’s . Example: 100\…. or 100\00 or 100\5.  (Not all boards will have 100, some will have less or more)

Now what those numbers means:

The 100 means that 100 people must click on the board so their name will be in it and when those 100 names are fill then and only then the gift will be send to all of those 100 people.

The other number show how many have click and add their name so you will know how many are left and much add their names so you can get the gift. Just call your friends to click to get the number fill ahahahah

Some board are set to give the gift until midnight and if the number it ask is not fill then it starts all over again and no one gets the gift. Some other boards stay online until it gets all the names it needs to get to send the gift no matter how long it will take it to get them.

When you won the gift, you will see it coming to you no matter where you are and a local massage will appear too. Make sure to accept it hahaahhahaah. If you decline it by mistake some shop have a board near by the board it gives the gift that can give you the missing gift .

 

Another board is the ONE OUT OF MANY board.

It has the same look as the Midnight Mania board but when it says 100\….. it means that 100 people must click and add their name so then and only then the board will chose one person and only one person of those 100 and send the gift. So not all of the names will get it. That’s why those boards you see a small number and not a big one like 100.

That’s it guys for this post I hope it was helpful

Another amazing creative way to get free quality stuff is by learning to be a blogger. :DD

What a blogger does:

First of all have a good looking avatar.

Explore or ask in groups for cool places where you can pose and blog the items you got from creators.

Learn about taking good pictures in sl. So many tutorials to read about it.

Even if you do not have people to follow your work , make a free page somewhere so you can show your work.

If you are new, many creators will like to support you and give you their work.

If they ask you to pay for the clothes you will blog do not do it especial if you work for free.  That’s my opinion.

If they want you to help them promote their work by putting the pictures, you take to as many facebook- flickr –other sl groups you have the ok to post, the least they can do is give you the items FREE.

If you become very good and you can find creators to pay you to blog for them do it!

Bloggings is for those that love to wear things and take good picture of them wearing them! It should be fun time but the creator that gives you free their hard work will expect you to do good pictures and promote them.

The pictures you will take they need to show the item you are blogging for not show you or your face.

If you want to leave from a creator be polite and tell them, do not take their work and leave just like that its so rude. So many say they are bloggers ask for many clothes take them and leave without blogging them. That is stealing you know, it is. You stole someone’s hard work.

How to say hello I am a blogger I want to find creators to work with? Go to the forum of sl to the topic about it and say it. Go to groups at facebook that you see creators post their work and say it. Make a nice poster about it and post it to as many groups as you can. Go to shops and send them a notecard with your page so they can see some of your work, if you are new get pictures of your clothes as an example. Many creators post posters in those groups asking for bloggers.

Before you say ok to a creator, make sure you know what they want you to do and you are ok with it.

That’s it for this post hahaahahahah I try to make them short but useful.

Polls how important they are not only to the creator but also to you as a shopper.

I see in many facebook groups people complain that their needs are not been listen from creators.

Alternatively, how can they see something they want to buy to be made?

However, when creators do polls and ask your help to help them understand your needs better you do not help.

Why? Why so many people all they want is to complain and only complain? Act too.

So many complain about things a shop has when they come in and they find it annoying but they never ever do the poll that the creator ask so he or she can see what change to make in their shops.

I have ask so many times  my group members to see pictures on future clothes and tell me what they like so I can upload and make then and what they hate and from 5000 members only 4 did it.

I ask them to tell me what they will like to see out there that is missing……. Or what is annoying or missing from my shop so their time can be more fun…..

Do not ask only for free gifts, help too.

Don’t you like to have a voice and say what things you like or hate?

For example at my small easy anonymous poll I ask things that will help me to improve how I run my shop so I can have less annoying things to people who pop up 😀

I have 31 people that have taken those 2–3 minutes to do it.

Speak up by doing those polls.

Not all polls are boring, long, that takes a lot of your time, and even if it takes 5 minutes if you want to change things go do them.

Now lets talk about one of the most important tool sl gives you so you can speak up to creators about their work.

When you buy something from marketplace, you can leave a review about it so others will know what to expect.  This can be use correct or as a hate unfair way. Its very important for all of us to learn how to use it and to use it.

Do not use it only to say the bad things its not fair, use it when you like or when what you pay for was as it say it must be.

This tool is so:

1). if something is missing and you wrote to the creator by a notecard and an im and you never got help after 1-2 weeks to go and write what the problem is and that you never got help.

2). If you buy something and it is as it say it must be go and tell a thank you, we need that so we can keep working with a smile in our face. It helps us know if people like our work. We spend all our sl time working.

3). When you need to write a bad review because you never got the help and the item is broken, write exactly what the problem is.

What this tool is not for:

1). Write a bad review before you try to speak to the creator. Yes, I know sometimes only when you leave a bad review the creator will reply back to you I have done it but change it when I got the help I needed.  Always write first a notecard and an im and let a few days or a week to pass before you write the bad review. Not all creators come online every day some come at weekend only or their pc can be broken so give sometime.

2). No matter how mad you are, do not be rude or write hate things but write exactly what the problem is. How can a hate rude words can help others to know what is wrong with this item? It only say a lot on what kind of person you are.

3). Write a hate review because you hate the creator or you sale the same item and you want to make them look bad so people can buy from you.

Hugs to all of you until my next topic :DD

What is hunts?

It’s a fun way to spend your time in sl if you are bored of the same old same. You get to learn about new shops and you get “gifts”. Not all hunts the hunt gifts are free to take them, some cost 1L or more.

Those that organize them, some are shop owners, some are people who love to organize hunts.  Some do them to bring more people to their place so more people will learn about their work. All hunts have rules that the shopper must follow in order to be accepted.

Some shops make small hunts just for their shop but most hunts have 50 or 100 shops that you will go to hunt.

Each shop gives a picture of the gift they give and a hint.

What is a hint? It’s a help so you will know where to look. I will put 2 examples to help get an idea of what hints looks like.  First example: oo my feet hurts so much I need to sit and rest = here you will be looking for anything in the shop and if it has am outside look there too for anything you can sit and rest.  Second example is: oo my feet hurts those shoes are so bad = here you need to look for anything that is a shoe, a picture with shoes, an item that is a shoe…. Some hints tho are so bad that do not help you at all.

There is always a web page where all the pictures of the gifts and landmarks and hints are been post so you can view them.

Each shop have the hunts poster and on it is the hunt item you will be looking and in that hunt item is the gift.  Some shops near the hunt poster they have the hint and a picture of their gift.

Most hunts last 30 days. They are 2 web pages that all hunts are posted there so you can apply as a shop or go hunt.

Try them at least once its worthy 😀

How to dress well and free or almost free.

Hahaha yes you can do that too in sl :DD

I know how hard it is to be bulled because you look bad and not a mesh avatar. We have our real life that we have to put up with people who treat us bad because they may be our bosses.

Sl must be a place to relax, meet people and have fun and not a place to be mad or sad in any way.  So that’s the reason I am writing this post, hoping that can add a smile to some of you by helping you enjoy sl even more!!:DD

Let’s start.

First of all I need to say this because as a creator I have to deal with it a lot.  Too many out there are spoiled by our free good quality gifts we give and they are so rude, so demanding, and so ungrateful.

Please do not become one of them.

We spend time and money to create those free group gifts and we deserve better.

If you do not like a free gift delete it do not become rude about it.

Stop asking for more free gifts to a creator when you do not buy for them.

When I am having a bad day and I get an im from someone asking me to make more gifts or will you make more than one monthly free group gift or I want the color hud why not give it in the free box and you have to sale it or this item that you sale I want it as a free gift………. It makes me mad it really does. It makes me feel that the world is so full of selfish people who do not care of the hard work and the afford you put to make them smile.  I do not think I am the only one that feels like that when an im like those above hit their profile.  If I am well then that’s me:PPPPPPPP

Well now that I said it lets go to the fun positive part of this post yeaaaaa come on follow me!!

When you create your account sl gives you the option to choose an avatar to start with, well you may have chosen one of them but as soon as you get in to sl you can use all of them. Yes yes yes!! You can use the hair or skin or shape or clothes so you can look better, mix them up as you like. Here is how to find them: go to your viewer menu up left to AVATAR menu then go to CHOOSE AN AVATAR and then a window will open with all the free avatars, wear them so they can show up at your inventory and keep what you like from each one of them! It may change in the future on how to find them or stop giving this option but for now, it works.

Another way is to visit those blogs that post all the group gifts and freebies out there. They are many, I do not know them all but google it to be sure you got them all. At their post, they write how to get the gift.  Write these key words in google: freebies in sl – it will show you many blogs and pages full of free stuff. I will add a few of them but I do not get anything by posting them I am not sponsor them in any way. Some I use them too when I have a free group gift, some I learn from others that they are out there.

At marketplace, you can find bazaar items as well or even free ones. Bazaar sales for 1L,2L.

They are hunts that have free gifts too. ( I will talk about them in another post)

You can become a blogger. ( I will talk about them in another post)

Some places in sl have free stuff and they work as helper points too. I know a few from asking around and in some of them I have given free clothes there to help new people.

* Raizes do Brasil – Community Gateway, Raizes do Brasil (137, 85, 23) – Moderate

* Helping Haven Gateway = http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Helping%20Haven%20Gateway/43/53/25

Not all group gifts or freebies are out there forever, many of them have expired date so you need to hurry and get them.

In some events, you can find many free stuff too. Most of my hair are from the hair event!!!!! I went 2 times (2 years) and I got so many amazing hair, I do not know if they still have free gifts or not but in some events they do.

They are the advent calendar (    https://www.teleporthub.com/?s=+advent+calendars, https://slhunts.wordpress.com/2019/10/06/holiday-advent-ure-2019/, https://huntsl.com/2019/10/07/holiday-advent-ure-2019/ ) where the shop post how they will give gifts at xmas or other holidays.

 

I am hoping this helps even a little to all of you, to be more familiar with the ways you can improve your looks and feel more happier in sl!Hugs
