Hi There Virtual Goddesses and Gods…this is just a short post in a new category whose posts will mostly be as short as this one. Yes, I am talking about Pet Peeves.
Pet Peeve #1 – Posting People and Commercial Fashion Pics in “Landscape Only” Groups
I mean seriously, the groups are NAMED “Landscape” – is it too much trouble to just NOT post your avvie or commercial fashion shot? Answer: No, it’s not!
Yes, SOME landscape groups allow and even want avvies in them, but NOT all of them. The poor admins should not have to spend days going through the pics and deleting the people shots, especially the blatant commercial ones. For crying out loud SL fashion bloggers, most of you aren’t even getting paid for all that awesome work you put into your pics and blogs. And I’m guessing the designers and creators you are blogging for would not want you to attach their brand to “rude and annoying!”
Is it really so hard to keep a little sticky note on your desktop listing the landscape groups that welcome people or animals in their shots, and ones that want just landscapes? Answer: No, it’s not!
For those folks who can’t figure out how to make a list, here’s a short one to start with:
Nature AND Avatars:
Second Life Outdoor Beauties – avvie desired
SL Nature & Outdoors – avvie desired
Second Life: Second Nature – avvie ok
Les plus beaux paysages de Second Life – avvie ok
Landscapes. Ok w/ Avvies in background, NOT primary focus:
Landscape City Water Outdoors – avvie ok if NOT primary focus
Second Life – Landscapes – avvie ok if NOT primary focus
Flora and fauna only NO PEOPLE:
These are all awesome groups with terrific submissions and great moderators. Please stop messing them up with inappropriate pics.
This concludes this edition of Prettyflower’s Pet Peeves.
