[13:06] Yann loll with jeremy its allways dangerous :p
[13:06] Peewee Musytari question 1...who broke answers lol
[13:06] Jeremy Linden Things Lindens learn the hard way at office hours: 1) Always sit on something. Always.
[13:06] Arawn Graalrd Isn't this PeeWee's Play House?
[13:06] Yann /me caugh
[13:06] Adamburp Adamczyk Get to the Joppa!
[13:07] Lexie Forums/Blogs and Answers:
[13:07] Peewee Musytari hehe
[13:07] Dresden Ceriano where's cyndi when you need her?
[13:07] Peewee Musytari poor answers
[13:07] DogWomble Dollinger rofl jeremy
[13:07] Lexie We fixed the smiley alignment ㋡
[13:07] Peewee Musytari yay
[13:07] DogWomble Dollinger ⓎⓐⓎ
[13:07] Venus Petrov today?
[13:07] Void Singer saw that... yay
[13:07] Dresden Ceriano but not the iline images
[13:07] bee Baroque \o/
[13:07] Dresden Ceriano inline*
[13:07] Void Singer doh
[13:07] Lexie We removed the comments form Answers. But, before you shoot me. let me say a couple fo things...
[13:07] COCOON /me shoots
[13:07] Dresden Ceriano they're still messed up
[13:08] COCOON aw
[13:08] Lexie I know Dresden
[13:08] Void Singer ::bang::
[13:08] Dresden Ceriano okay
[13:08] Yann /me poke Lexie :p
[13:08] Torben don´t get irritated by my TNT bag
[13:08] Lexie Removing the comments solved one issue, which was comments cannot be accepted solutions
[13:08] Peewee Musytari aww as if we would shoot would be stuck like that if we did lol
[13:08] Lexie But it also caused another one from what I am reading from you on the forums
[13:09] Peewee Musytari hehe a few yup
[13:09] Lexie Would you say that if each answer had a reply button, things would be better?
[13:09] Lexie The ability to quote?
[13:09] Peewee Musytari yes definately
[13:09] Lord of Dee Well it was getting confusing because you'd comment and then the comment wasn't showing up.
[13:09] Lexie Right Lord of Dee
[13:09] Luc Starsider They should definitely have a way to reply
[13:10] Lexie I noticed if you hit the permalink a comment box shows up...
[13:10] Lexie So..yes we need to look at it more
[13:10] Peewee Musytari so the existing comments lexie, can they be turned into posts?
[13:10] Lexie I am going to ask about that Peewee
[13:10] Peewee Musytari whew
[13:10] Lexie I know they are still there but not easy to get to
[13:11] Peewee Musytari yeah we still have comment counts on our stats so they def went somewhere
[13:11] Lexie But overall, we need to be able to mark all the good info you guys give as accepted solutions. Thats why the removal of comments box was important
[13:11] Yann oh Hi lisa :)
[13:11] Lord of Dee At one stage they were showing if you hovered your mouse around on Firefox 4.01
[13:11] Lexie Please continue to add feedback in the thread about Answers comments on the forum
[13:12] Lexie I will keep an eye there
[13:12] Venus Petrov Is Answers going to be renamed Q&A?
[13:12] Peewee Musytari the comments on the OP were already hidden since the first change, the rest are all in same place now I guess
[13:12] Lexie Also, we fixed the spacing related to some oddness between videos and text, paragraph headers and text. It nows spaces nicely..not all smooshed
[13:13] DogWomble Dollinger 'smooshes'
[13:13] DogWomble Dollinger nice word
[13:13] Lexie
[13:13] Yann sorry i,m not very busy its just to stop the f.. masiv tp ..
[13:13] Luc Starsider /me looks up smooshed in the dictionary
[13:13] Lexie I also saw some problems with the way scripts are displaying. I am following up on that too.
[13:13] Peewee Musytari smooshed is lexie`s new fave word hehe....she was gonna smoosh the categories too
[13:13] Void Singer it's under S with skoce
[13:13] Lexie Good feedback thread on that in the forums
[13:13] Void Singer skosh?
[13:14] DogWomble Dollinger <- there you go luc
[13:14] Void Singer meh
[13:14] Lexie haha yes smooshed is a helpful word
[13:14] Luc Starsider Sound painful, actually
[13:14] Jeremy Linden Ehhh....
[13:14] DogWomble Dollinger particularly the last one :)
[13:14] Jeremy Linden I don't think urban dictionary is the best source for this one.
[13:14] Lexie ohhhh
[13:14] DogWomble Dollinger hahaha jeremy
[13:14] Lexie :x
[13:14] Peewee Musytari lol
[13:14] Lexie lol
[13:14] Marianne McCann I'm with Jeremy
[13:14] Luc Starsider lol
[13:14] Lexie ok Im going to pick a new word!
[13:14] Void Singer Lexie, so was that an internal change that borked code posting or a lithium one?
[13:14] Lexie
[13:14] Adamburp Adamczyk google roger's profanisaurus
[13:15] DogWomble Dollinger hahahaha adam
[13:15] Youri Ashton talking about scripts, wouldnt it be good to have a database for scripts? so everyone just can check in there without having to look trough the mess with all other pages?
[13:15] Lexie Void I am not sure. I am asking lithium to check it for us
[13:15] Venus Petrov Lexie, is Answers going to be renamed Q&A?
[13:15] Void Singer thanks...
[13:15] Void Singer @ Youri, you mean like the LSL Library?
[13:15] Lexie Venus, Im not sure Q&A would mean much to new users? WHat do you think?
[13:15] Marianne McCann Youri - agreed. Never felt tht was ge best way to disply them
[13:16] Youri Ashton something like that, but more organized, its a mess now
[13:16] Lord of Dee Youri there's a special forum or has a good library too
[13:16] Venus Petrov I think it would, actually.
[13:16] Youri Ashton cant really find much at all
[13:16] Peewee Musytari I think it may be a universally known term
[13:16] Luc Starsider Q&A is pretty well known, isn't it?
[13:16] Venus Petrov yes, i think so
[13:16] Lexie I will see if we can change it.
[13:16] Luc Starsider Most people know it.
[13:16] Dresden Ceriano i endorse it
[13:16] Venus Petrov Great thanks
[13:16] Void Singer Youri, there also the wiki library.... which now has a categorized view thanks to... I forget who did that
[13:16] Lexie Lets get updates from Rand and Jeremy
[13:16] Rand Hey...
[13:17] Peewee Musytari maybe more recognisible to non english speakers than the word answers
[13:17] Rand Not too much to report this week...
[13:17] Rand Jeremy is finishing up land articles and will soon be starting work on mesh docs
[13:17] Rand I'm still doing some wiki cleanup
[13:17] Lexie awesome
[13:17] Jeremy Linden I've been updating various KB articles about Private Regions, and I'm going to start working on Mesh documentation soon!
[13:17] Jeremy Linden Er, what Rand said.
[13:17] Torben hehe, the tag team ^^
[13:17] Rand heh
[13:18] Rand I did create a new portal on the wiki
[13:18] Youri Ashton LL itself should start their own LSL library, its a lot easier to find for new residents
[13:18] Luc Starsider Does that mean mesh is about to hit the main grid soon?
[13:18] Rand a small one
[13:18] Rand Luc - I cant speak to exact timing...
[13:18] Youri Ashton doesnt mean that the rest isnt welcome of course
[13:18] Lexie I like the new portal Rand
[13:18] Rand but "real soon now" ;-)
[13:18] Peewee Musytari why do lindens like pitting "private regions" in KB lol...don`t they know it makes u giggle..especially "naming private regions"
[13:18] Luc Starsider OK
[13:18] Jeremy Linden /me doesn't know what the schedule for Mesh looks like, but will be talking with Nyx after this user group.
[13:18] Marianne McCann Question on Wiki cleanup (not that one). noted the bay City page is now marked "obsolete. er, i t is still regularly in use. What makes it "obsolete?"
[13:18] Luc Starsider Great!
[13:18] Adamburp Adamczyk how far on is the reworking of the wiki? i've had soem real issues fidig stuff
[13:18] Rand Peewee lol - never actually thought of that!
[13:18] Peewee Musytari lol
[13:19] Adamburp Adamczyk finding*
[13:19] Jeremy Linden Peewee, don't forget "Can I rotate my private region?"
[13:19] Peewee Musytari /me ** Loooooo00ooooooL **
[13:19] Lexie lol
[13:19] Marianne McCann
[13:19] Rand Marianne - perhaps it just needs some updating. If you dont think it shoudl be so marked, pls just remove the template
[13:19] Lexie Maybe someone used the wrong template there
[13:19] Marianne McCann Can do
[13:19] Rand Adam - unfortunately, finding stuff on Mediawiki isa general issue
[13:20] Rand ...since there is no real notion of hierarchy or navigation
[13:20] Lord of Dee That list of deleted pages was scary
[13:20] Adamburp Adamczyk okay rand cheers
[13:20] Rand If you have specific problems, please let me know and I will try to address
[13:20] Peewee Musytari kk
[13:20] Adamburp Adamczyk but everything i searched for gave me the complete opposite of what i looked for
[13:20] Marianne McCann Seriously, Ciaran
[13:20] Void Singer lol you should have seen the moved list
[13:20] Adamburp Adamczyk rand - send you that in im?
[13:20] Rand Adam- bummer... send me examples.... not sure I can fix tho
[13:20] Rand IM or Lithium PM
[13:21] Yann Hi OO :)
[13:21] Rand That's about it for us
[13:21] Lexie Hi oobscure
[13:21] Peewee Musytari is there a sound here or is it in my head?
[13:21] Lexie ok, onto stuff you all added
[13:21] Lexie That tic toc is in your head peewee
[13:21] Marianne McCann It's here, peewee. Ended up having to mute the computer
[13:21] Peewee Musytari lol
[13:21] COCOON this->proposal to block 'buy/sell land and commerce threads' from appearing in 'Recently Created Threads', a forum is a place to discuss topics not to be used for SPAM ^^
[13:21] Lord of Dee There's a sound
[13:21] Void Singer and just for the record, many thanks Rand
[13:21] Peewee Musytari its loud
[13:22] Rand yw Void
[13:22] COCOON I hear it too peewee ^^
[13:22] Jeremy Linden /me can't hear it...
[13:22] Lord of Dee Throbbing noise
[13:22] Peewee Musytari yes
[13:22] Luc Starsider /me cant hear it
[13:22] Jeremy Linden Cany anyone identify the source?
[13:22] Lisa Fossett Wildcat, I'd hoped that was brought up. I agree with you
[13:22] Peewee Musytari industrial
[13:22] Ann Otoole i had to block dogwomble cuz the pounding sound was giving me a headache. sorry dog.
[13:22] COCOON ;o)
[13:22] Marianne McCann AH, it's dog? Thanks
[13:22] Lexie Wildcat: I hate to say I don't think so, but..I dont think so.
[13:22] DogWomble Dollinger no probs ... i got rid of that last night anyways
[13:22] Void Singer /me loves hearing from lookat postion... zoom out to silence
[13:22] Yann what an headhache? lol :)
[13:23] COCOON meaning lexie?
[13:23] Lexie I will double check but I think it simply pulls from all
[13:23] Yann sorry *sarcasme*
[13:23] COCOON It is irritating to see appearing constantly the same spam threads
[13:23] Lexie We might be able to come up with a different widget to use
[13:23] Lisa Fossett The source may actually be from Dracons. I'm getting something on his foot that seems to be it...
[13:23] COCOON from the same people
[13:23] Luc Starsider I agree with Wildcat
[13:23] draconis.neurocam if you want to know where sounds are coming from, on v2 at least world>show>beacons
[13:23] Lexie right wildcat, I agree
[13:24] Luc Starsider Perhas the commerce stuff could be separated out?
[13:24] Lexie I will add that to the list to check on in more depth
[13:24] COCOON I rather like to see interesting subjects in there
[13:24] Luc Starsider Perhaps
[13:24] COCOON forum is to discuss
[13:24] Lisa Fossett The forum becomes a free classified if you let that in.
[13:24] Lord of Dee Forum has many purposes
[13:24] Lisa Fossett And it wastes resources.
[13:24] COCOON yes but if you want to advertise ...... NO
[13:24] Lisa Fossett and clogs it.
[13:24] Lord of Dee Classifieds should be in there too, they used to be
[13:25] Lexie I will take your feedback to the team and see what they come up with on it
[13:25] COCOON cool thx lexie ^^
[13:25] Yann hmm, question like that on the new forum and blog, do you know .. when i click of the user name its could be redirected to the web profile link?
[13:25] Peewee Musytari what happened to the request to bring back the New Products forum? are we getting that?
[13:25] Lisa Fossett Sorryt, the sound was not on Draconis, it's on Dog's left foot
[13:26] Peewee Musytari yeah the sound is dogwomble hehe
[13:26] DogWomble Dollinger strange ... the scripting and sounds for that have been removed
[13:26] Void Singer /me likes Eddi's idea.... it's been a popular request since before jive
[13:26] Jeremy Linden If I recall correctly, looping sounds may not stop if the script is removed.
[13:26] Lexie New Products forum.. I do not have an answer on that. Lets have that on next weeks agenda
[13:26] Lisa Fossett need to scrub the prim
[13:26] draconis.neurocam llstopsound has to be called i believe
[13:27] Peewee Musytari kk ty lexie
[13:27] Adamburp Adamczyk well, its not my onigokko]
[13:27] Adamburp Adamczyk onigokko
[13:27] Void Singer /me nods at Jeremy: you have to use a script to remove embedded sounds from objects
[13:27] Peewee Musytari ahh silence
[13:27] Peewee Musytari yay
[13:27] Yann Void, its an # jira for this request or it not started yet?
[13:27] Peewee Musytari ty
[13:27] Lord of Dee It has stopped
[13:27] Dresden Ceriano i'm so glad i'm noy wearing mine
[13:27] COCOON ^^
[13:27] Dresden Ceriano not*
[13:27] Lexie Yann: it will redirect you to the community profile. Thats as expected
[13:27] Lexie Different profiles
[13:28] Void Singer Eddi, I dunno... I just remember it being requested multiple times since the old forums
[13:28] Dresden Ceriano maybe we could have a link on the community profile to your SL profile
[13:28] Marianne McCann Indeed, Dresden
[13:28] Yann okey lexie, cause now you have 3 or 4 different profile, they use some different server for notning :)
[13:28] Lexie Interesting idea Dresden!
[13:28] Luc Starsider That would be great, Dres
[13:28] Lisa Fossett I daresay you could add it, if you can add a link
[13:28] Marianne McCann So many profiles to manage...
[13:28] Peewee Musytari ooh the old xtreet forum had that
[13:28] Lisa Fossett should be opt in as always :)
[13:28] Lexie opt in..good point
[13:29] Dresden Ceriano true
[13:29] Lexie Next up: When not logged in on, the link for Help->Resources For New Users should probably point to a more useful page than
[13:29] Lexie Rand or Jeremy, do you know anything on this at all?
[13:29] Yann jira profile, web profile, wiki profile .. blog profile .. geez
[13:29] Luc Starsider Yupp. You should not have to be logged in to get to the info you need
[13:29] Lexie I know its by design
[13:29] Rand Lexie - that would just be a WEB jira
[13:29] Luc Starsider And the featured news is not very interesting to new users, I think
[13:29] Peewee Musytari blondin seemed to thin he fixed that but mine is still broke
[13:29] Rand If its by design, I dont think its a good choice
[13:30] Adamburp Adamczyk lexie, any word on last week's visit?
[13:30] Dresden Ceriano something to look into
[13:30] Luc Starsider Yes, it's still broke
[13:30] Rand Suggest we open a Jira and see if we can get it changed/fixed
[13:30] Adamburp Adamczyk whilst on about stuff for noobs?
[13:30] Lexie I take that back..I could be wrong. Has anyone checked for a jira on it yet?
[13:30] Rand I have not
[13:30] Lexie Can you do one if it doesnt exist?
[13:30] Yann okey .. hmm let me see what i can do on jira :)
[13:31] Yann i can take a linden profile to do my picture add?
[13:31] Youri Ashton that page at least needs to be a lot simpler and easier to use
[13:31] Lexie Adam, no "news" yet
[13:31] Rand yes, i could open a jira
[13:31] Lexie great
[13:31] Lexie Where is the preferred place for putting bug reports and/or feature requests for the community? User group, community forum, jira or what?
[13:31] Rand Yann, if y ou could do it, great!
[13:31] Youri Ashton noobs dont understand a lot of SL in the beginning, so yeah, rand, opena JIRA, this really needs a fix i'd say
[13:32] Adamburp Adamczyk well i meant is did you pass it on
[13:32] Rand i agree it should be fixed
[13:32] Lexie I did Adam
[13:32] Adamburp Adamczyk i understand doesn't ha[[en overnight
[13:32] Adamburp Adamczyk thanks lexie - and thanks for takng the tiem to look
[13:32] Lexie bug reports and feature request go in jira.
[13:32] Luc Starsider The reason for the question is that I have kind of used the community for bug reports, and they do nto really fit there. Jira is the better place.
[13:32] Luc Starsider But which is best?
[13:33] Lexie If you are giving feedback strictly on the community platform, there is a thread for that available
[13:33] Luc Starsider OK
[13:33] Dresden Ceriano i think you should go to the community first, so you can get a handle on if it's really an issue or if domething's going on just for you
[13:33] Luc Starsider I started to wonder, so I've added everything to the community.
[13:33] Void Singer @Rand, that jira is about the login conditional page link? even targetting the logged on pages (which just sends you through an openid check) might be prefereable
[13:33] Lexie If you are unsure, you can always PM me and I can tell you the place for it Luc
[13:33] Luc Starsider OK.
[13:34] Luc Starsider Will do
[13:34] Yann what the component i can take for that?
[13:34] Void Singer WEB I think
[13:34] Void Singer SVC is that's been closed
[13:35] Lexie Hi Identity
[13:35] Lexie I think WEB too
[13:35] Lexie ok next on the list:
[13:35] Lexie Forum consolidation ideas from residents
[13:35] Yann yeah , but the components , in web
[13:35] Peewee Musytari it would be good if there was somewhere we could report patterns of occurring problems that look like they might be the start of a bug, so that people don`t get bounced back n forth from JIRA to support when neither recognise its a problem affecting more than one divorces where one name stays on a profile
[13:35] Venus Petrov Yes, Lexie, I put the link to the thread in the agenda
[13:35] Rand Yes, "logged in" is different than "not logged in" .... even different teams handle the issues
[13:35] Id Koba Hi ㋡
[13:35] COCOON Hiya Id
[13:36] Youri Ashton hey oob
[13:36] Lexie is the link ffor forum consolidation
[13:36] Void Singer oh... uhm... probably leave them blank.... they're underused for the most part, unless something sticks out
[13:36] COCOON I liked Storm his proposal ^^
[13:36] COCOON to consolidate
[13:36] Venus Petrov Storm started the thread..there have been several good ideas for consolidating subforums
[13:37] Lexie I agree we should combine some of them
[13:37] Venus Petrov there is such a proliferation that it is sometimes hard to know where to post things and where to find things
[13:37] Dresden Ceriano i favorite is mine... hehe
[13:37] Yann just take blog, forum wiki, and my :)
[13:37] Youri Ashton hey identity :)
[13:37] Dresden Ceriano my*
[13:37] Void Singer lol a dres
[13:37] Lisa Fossett Well said, Venus
[13:37] Venus Petrov /me smiles at Dres
[13:37] Lexie I dont think we can restructure the whole thing
[13:37] Venus Petrov some might actually like an uber list but may be unwieldy for others
[13:38] Venus Petrov so reducing the number of subforums would be great
[13:38] COCOON you could SMOOSH it Lexie ^^
[13:38] Youri Ashton time for me to go again :)
[13:38] Venus Petrov hehe Wildcat
[13:38] Lexie lol wildcat
[13:38] COCOON lol
[13:38] Youri Ashton tnx for having me lindens :)
[13:38] Void Singer never gonna let her forget huh?
[13:38] Lexie Bye Youri!
[13:38] Youri Ashton till next week!
[13:38] Void Singer =)
[13:38] bee Baroque bye youri \o :)
[13:38] Adamburp Adamczyk bye youri, tc fella
[13:38] Youri Ashton bye bye lexie :)
[13:38] COCOON tc youri
[13:38] Peewee Musytari bye youri :)
[13:38] Jeremy Linden Smoosh: v. "To squash or mash"
[13:38] Torben I gotta run too
[13:38] Venus Petrov Lexie, since you've read the thread, can we leave it to you and your team to make the changes?
[13:39] Torben take care all
[13:39] Dresden Ceriano what happens is you're spreading the conversation too much, there's no place to go to hang out really
[13:39] Venus Petrov righto
[13:39] Lexie What criteria would a board meet to require us to merge it into another forum
[13:39] Dresden Ceriano doesn't help build a feeling of community
[13:39] Lexie ok Dresden, good point
[13:39] DogWomble Dollinger lexie similarly themed content?
[13:39] Venus Petrov Sorry Lexie, I don't understand the question.
[13:40] Peewee Musytari someone posted another thread about renaming the scripting forum and making it more obvious too
[13:40] Dresden Ceriano my avatar and fashion
[13:40] Dresden Ceriano for one
[13:40] Void Singer similar theme and low pocst frequency?
[13:40] Venus Petrov right
[13:40] Lord of Dee Well the sports guys seem to be happy talking sports and the rolpeplayers are happy talking roleplay, these won't interest that many folk so why not leave them be
[13:40] COCOON Lexie while you restructure it ......... can you add DATING as a category? ->this to help the lonely hearts in second life!!!
[13:40] Lexie Let me restate it. If a board only has x number of threads after 30 should merge with another board?
[13:40] Venus Petrov low post frequency is ripe for consolidation
[13:40] Venus Petrov yes to that Lexie
[13:40] Dresden Ceriano maybe so
[13:41] Peewee Musytari yeah sport has been quiet...must be off season
[13:41] Lexie I don't think we will do a dating area... lol
[13:41] Marianne McCann Perhaps. THough I suspect some categories may not shoehorn well
[13:41] Lexie right Marianne
[13:41] Venus Petrov ahahahahah
[13:41] COCOON well more and more people seem to post in that direction ^^
[13:41] Marianne McCann Lexie "Is my avvie hot or not"
[13:41] Dresden Ceriano i was hoping for more... but i'll take what i can get... lol
[13:41] Venus Petrov Storm will be disappointed!
[13:41] Marianne McCann /me snickers
[13:41] COCOON yes he will be depressed ^^
[13:41] Yann , done here, but i need to complete after the meeting
[13:41] Void Singer /me finds it hard to give a number
[13:41] Venus Petrov He just wants to know if he can get that elusive date with you lol
[13:41] Lexie thanks Yann!
[13:41] Lexie haha Venus
[13:41] COCOON lol venus
[13:41] Yann welcome Lexie :)
[13:42] Peewee Musytari land is a bit all over the place with a bit in each section
[13:42] Yann sorry my english typos if i have some fault :)
[13:42] Lexie I think Avatar and fashion could merge
[13:42] Dresden Ceriano true peewee
[13:42] Venus Petrov I think there was so much enthusiasm early on at being able to HAVE subforums...we kind of went overboard
[13:42] Marianne McCann Agreed
[13:42] Luc Starsider With fashion, you could be talking about creating fashion
[13:42] Lexie I think sports and events could merge?
[13:42] Venus Petrov yes
[13:42] COCOON it is better to start wild and to end calm ^^
[13:42] Lord of Dee No
[13:42] Marianne McCann /me nods
[13:42] COCOON lol
[13:42] Luc Starsider Shoud that still go in Avatar, or in content creation
[13:42] Peewee Musytari yep
[13:42] Luc Starsider ?
[13:42] Venus Petrov you would know, Wildcat lol
[13:43] COCOON haha
[13:43] Dresden Ceriano no one uses it for creation i don't believe
[13:43] Lexie hmm
[13:43] Luc Starsider Ah, Avatar it is, then
[13:43] Qie In fact... the same is true of Blog categories. It's not as if there's such a flood of blog posts that it really matters that they're categorized at all.
[13:43] Peewee Musytari fashion and avatar seem more of a match than fashion and content creation
[13:43] Lexie I think so too Peewee
[13:43] Luc Starsider True
[13:43] COCOON yep
[13:44] Luc Starsider Just asking
[13:44] Venus Petrov Sports/Music & Entertainment
[13:44] Dresden Ceriano events/music and entertainment/sports
[13:44] Dresden Ceriano lol
[13:44] Venus Petrov si Dres lol
[13:44] Peewee Musytari yes dres I agree
[13:44] Lexie would that be too much Dresden?
[13:44] Dresden Ceriano i don't believe
[13:44] Dresden Ceriano look at the post counts
[13:44] Venus Petrov /me agrees w/ Dres
[13:44] Peewee Musytari is all related to stuff to do
[13:44] Lexie I can look at the total numbers for those and see what it would end up being all together
[13:45] Dresden Ceriano it calle all go under entertainment
[13:45] COCOON ok we wait Lexie (while you calculate ^^)
[13:45] Dresden Ceriano could*
[13:45] Lexie lol
[13:45] Venus Petrov look at it this way, too, it could save Mod resource from moving things around
[13:45] Lexie ha! Thats actually true Venus
[13:45] Venus Petrov fewer places to move to
[13:45] COCOON cost savings!!!!
[13:45] Venus Petrov YES
[13:45] Lexie I see many "Moved" notices
[13:45] Venus Petrov bingo
[13:45] Lord of Dee You'll kill some categories if you merge them sports is very niche, it should have visibility
[13:45] Venus Petrov exactly
[13:46] Peewee Musytari i see the new name for feedback didn`t stop the multi posts in there...people just like posting there lol
[13:46] Lexie SPorts is very quiet though Lord of Dee
[13:46] Venus Petrov they see Lindens responding and wanna be heard
[13:46] Void Singer Eddi, I hope you don't mind, I updated your feature request
[13:46] Dresden Ceriano i'd like to see make friends and lifestyles combind but i'm willing to bet that won't fly
[13:46] Venus Petrov even QUESTIONS get posted there..rather than under ANSWERS lol
[13:46] COCOON sports is named wrong ....... should have been (sailing/flying/racing)
[13:46] Luc Starsider They seem to do more double posting now than before
[13:47] COCOON sailing is an extreme large community
[13:47] Lord of Dee Yeah that's the point, people don't know they're here, I didn't know American Football went on here until that forum was created
[13:47] Venus Petrov i agree w/ Friends and Lifestyles (for the rich and famous)
[13:47] Lexie Yes, and questions can now be moved to Answers where they belong. You will all see some of that activity happening
[13:47] Lexie ok, lets think about Sports, maybe leave it be and build up the description
[13:47] Dresden Ceriano =Pvenus
[13:47] Dresden Ceriano lol
[13:48] Venus Petrov If the subforum descriptor says 'sports' people will know to post there or look
[13:48] Void Singer I think part of the problem is skimming.... people see "Answers" and "knowledge base" and "feedback" and don't bother to parse the specific nature
[13:48] Venus Petrov lol
[13:48] Lord of Dee Or have a sub heading on the forums so people know what should go there and good point about sailing
[13:48] Peewee Musytari making friends is a good one on its own...we get to send people there when they ask how do I meet people?
[13:48] Venus Petrov Making Friends and Relationships...let them plunge in!
[13:48] Venus Petrov /me laughs
[13:48] COCOON and dating ^^
[13:48] Peewee Musytari eeps
[13:48] Venus Petrov ahahahaha
[13:48] Lexie Making friends is a fairly active board
[13:49] Peewee Musytari I agree lexie
[13:49] Venus Petrov Dates with Lexi should be a separate subforum
[13:49] Lexie rofll
[13:49] DogWomble Dollinger and the fact that asking to do the hoohaa is not appropriate on a pg sim? :P
[13:49] Venus Petrov lol
[13:49] Luc Starsider lol
[13:49] Peewee Musytari they have cute little noob chats there
[13:49] Dresden Ceriano i was hoping to consolidate the community a littkle
[13:49] Peewee Musytari its funny
[13:49] COCOON the STORM forum
[13:49] Void Singer lol Wild.... yeah might as well teach em to swim by tossing them in with the sharks =X
[13:49] Venus Petrov hehe
[13:49] COCOON rofl void
[13:49] Venus Petrov Wildcat, he reads these notes ahahahaha
[13:49] COCOON I am candor ^^
[13:50] Venus Petrov of course!
[13:50] Lexie ok, so lets put these ideas in that forum thread:Forum consolidation ideas from residents
[13:50] COCOON ;o)
[13:50] Lexie
[13:50] Dresden Ceriano i have... i guess i could try harder
[13:50] Lexie I will ask Raymond and Amanda to take a look there too
[13:50] Venus Petrov How much longer do you wish to seek feedback before making some decisions, Lexie?
[13:50] Lord of Dee How about advertising the forums too, you've tweaked and changed and people won't know what's available, give them a boost
[13:51] Peewee Musytari someone wanted something brought up at the meeting and I forgot what it was lol
[13:51] COCOON lol peewee
[13:51] Lexie Id like to make some changes middle of next week if possible
[13:51] Peewee Musytari who remembers the post?
[13:51] Venus Petrov ok cool
[13:51] Peewee Musytari hehe
[13:51] Void Singer doncha hate that.... people do that to me all the time.... hey ask about xyz...
[13:51] Lexie Lord of Dee, yes..we need to promote the forums and we are working on ideas!
[13:51] Marianne McCann Agreed, ciaran. Give 'em a MotD spot or something
[13:51] Dresden Ceriano god then we'll come back and tell you guys what other changes you have to make
[13:51] Lexie good thought
[13:51] Lord of Dee Good call Mari
[13:51] Dresden Ceriano lol
[13:51] Dresden Ceriano good*
[13:52] Lord of Dee Where's Amanda?
[13:52] Lexie conference
[13:52] Lord of Dee ah good to know she hasn't left
[13:52] Lexie I wanted to point out that we are doing polls every week on the forums.
[13:53] Lexie Lets bring the fun back ㋡
[13:53] Venus Petrov yes i saw the first one
[13:53] Adamburp Adamczyk i asgree
[13:53] Lisa Fossett Such as, Lexie?
[13:53] Lexie New one is up today and doesnt require you to watch 12 videos lol
[13:53] Luc Starsider You should advertise the polls on the login screen in the viewer
[13:53] Adamburp Adamczyk jeremy's challenge to be a streaker in ll offices?
[13:53] Peewee Musytari oooh I found was about ways to make the advanced mode default
[13:53] Adamburp Adamczyk that'sd be a good poll
[13:54] Jeremy Linden /me doesn't think the office would appreciate that.
[13:54] Lexie Lisa, I think its great ..all the serious feedback and help and discussions on the forums. But, laughing is good too. I just want more of that!!
[13:54] Lord of Dee Agreed Lexie
[13:54] Lisa Fossett I agree...just hadn't seen it so was curious what it was :)
[13:54] Venus Petrov Laughter is good for the soul
[13:54] Marianne McCann Especially downstaies, jeremy
[13:55] Peewee Musytari Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a debug setting for AdvancedMode yet, or if there is one it hasn't been published.
[13:55] Yann Thank Void :)
[13:55] Lexie The recent poll is a bit funny but I would love your suggestions for more!
[13:55] Qie Okay, I'm a n00b: Where is this poll?
[13:55] Lexie That might make a better jira Peewee
[13:56] Peewee Musytari kk I`ll tell rolig
[13:56] Lexie Qie
[13:56] Lexie right side at the top
[13:56] Qie oh! thanks. sorry, I was scanning for a thread.
[13:56] Lexie We are almost out of time..and we did not get to the hub discussion. So I will leave that on there for the next meeting!
[13:56] Lisa Fossett Funny, Lexie :)
[13:57] Lexie : ))
[13:57] DogWomble Dollinger i could add one sort of relevant option to that poll
[13:57] DogWomble Dollinger "wondered why you can't cam aroudn a youtube video"
[13:57] Lexie hahah
[13:57] Lexie nice Dog
[13:57] Dresden Ceriano oh lord I could tell a few good stories about the first thing alone
[13:57] Adamburp Adamczyk "ever yelled onigokko in an rl queue"
[13:57] Peewee Musytari can we post threads as polls instead of discussions?
[13:57] Lisa Fossett Done that, Dog
[13:57] DogWomble Dollinger haha lisa, as have i :)
[13:57] Lexie You can, sure
[13:57] Lord of Dee ah that's like when people post screenshots with scroll bars and I try and use the scroll bar on the screenshot
[13:57] Lexie hha I do that too Dog
[13:58] Lexie I mean Lord
[13:58] Dresden Ceriano can anyone start a poll?
[13:58] Marianne McCann /me has been known to try to cam around screen shots
[13:58] Lexie no, only community managers
[13:58] Dresden Ceriano oh okay
[13:58] Luc Starsider Me too, marianne.
[13:58] Lexie But you can do a poll thread style
[13:58] Void Singer @PeeWee: there is a way to do it... I managed it on accident, so I'll have to experiment.... all basic mode does is use one settings file instead of another
[13:58] Dresden Ceriano yeah
[13:59] Peewee Musytari can poll threads be added with voting
[13:59] Lexie I may also start some fun threads soon so..dont think Ive gone crazy or anything. Just bringing more fun back ㋡
