D’NI REFUGEES – ISSUE OVER POSTING NOTICES
DMom2K Darwin

This was from yesterday. It is my understanding that new roles were created for vetting any postings to the D’ni Refugee group by only one of the owners of the group. It was a total surprise and very disconcerting to DeAnn and myself to find we had been ‘assigned’ new roles within the group arbitrarily. This made both of us very uncomfortable. The ablility for group members to post has been returned to normal at this time. Here is my comment to this situation:

“I just got on this afternoon and saw the notice about limiting who can post on Refugees and new roles being created. I asked DeAnn if she knew what was going on and she didn’t either. Neither one of us were asked if we wanted these roles and I do not know if White Rose was asked either. This has made DeAnn and myself feel very uncomfortable with being put in this position without any notice or input.

Speaking for myself, I have issues on limiting postings since most of us behave ourselves and a lot of good info goes out in the notices. Besides, The D’ni Voice only goes out Monday through Friday and it is a given stuff will happen over the weekend that I was not able to catch and others get it out there ( thank you very much for that too! ). I try not to work weekends but usually I am setting up stuff for the newsletters, blog and MOUL thread in addition to looking for new items and articles in SL, on blogs, threads and media searches which keeps me very busy every day.

While I appreciate that some have felt that certain posts are spamming, it is up to them to bring the issue up to the owners of the group so the owners can get together and talk about it and decide on posting policies and what constitutes spam and how to deal with it. It is easy enough to find the owners in the group list since they are bolded and listed as owners. A simple IM or notecard will do to state what it is that you have an issue with and why you consider something spam. For the owners of the group my expectation is that they would talk with one another and try to resolve group policy issues. I would hate to see folk leave the group for a policy issue or a perception that there is so much spamming that it interferes with the enjoyment of the group. This is a great group and has been and continues to be.

It is my understanding that granelda, also one of the owners of the group, has reinstated posting for everyone and most likely will take up this issue with the other owners. I have not had a chance to talk with her or any of the other owners of the group about it but will when I can.”

I have since spoken with granelda who will take this up with the other owners and it will be dealt with on that level.

Info on Note

URU Cavern Skydivers moved here when URU game shut down 2 years ago.   Now the URU game is back up and running most of us have rejoined our friends there too.
Our place here in Bestone was a home for all of the ppl that came from URU to SL.  From there we scattered to other areas in SL. Bestone even developed into a rental property to support the acivities of URU Cavern Skydiver Competitions and donations to URU places such as Eder Gira.  It is time for Bestone to move on as all of us have.

The property will be sold and and any profits will be donated to Eder Gira
as no individual in the group can make a profit from the sale.

To our Renters,  Thank You for your loyalty to us over the last 2 yrs…
Your rent is free for the next 45 days or , until you find a new place to live.

512 Donations:  Pls wait to take them back until the property has been sold.  Unless you are a renter that has donated a 512 and need it for a free house in SL

The property will be sold and and any profits will be donated to Eder Gira
as no individual in the group can make a profit from the sale.

TWO LARGE PLOTS ON WINTERFELL REVERIE
Dot Macchi
Available late March/early April
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Winterfell%20Reverie/152/45/26
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Winterfell%20Reverie/151/155/23

If you’ve been following the Developments in Devokan thread on MOUL or the blog at http://blog.devokan.net you will have seen that the Devokan team is currently in transition to a new set of regions on the OSgrid.

As a result, two large plots of land, each 6144 m^2 with a prim allowance of 1406 prims, on the beautifully themed Winterfell Reverie island will become available in late March/early April.

Winterfell Reverie is part of the Winterfell group of eleven fantasy medieval sims and three fantasy Tudor/Elizabethan/Victorian sims. To quote the covenant: ‘Winterfell is a twilight fantasy region designed and inspired by stories, dreams and creative interpretations of reality.’ More details about Winterfell (including the covenant) are on its ning site at http://winterfell.ning.com .

Winterfell is to the north of Caledon, so it makes an ideal base for exploration by the extensive waterways (both plots have direct access to river or sea) or by air. Indeed, a ferry system is currently under development to serve the Winterfell community and even reach Caledon Cape Wrath.

If desired, existing buildings could be left on the land (e.g. Rustica Seaside Cottage and Skye Castles Gothic Keep) for people to furnish as they wish. They are lovely buildings, and work well with the island’s architectural theme.

The rent/tier is 3000 L$ per week, payable to a tier box in the Winterfell Estate Office. The estate owner is the helpful and obliging Miss Serra Anansi.

If you are interested or would like more details, please contact Dot Macchi before 24 March. Thanks!

PS It’s such a lovely area that I shall be staying here, but in a smaller corner plot. Dot.

There will be live entertainment on two stages, art exhibits, drumming, fire dancing and Lamplighter Processions.

The Lamplighters are starting this year with some very exciting things. From JeanBaptiste Eilde, leader of the Lamplighter’s Group:

” Since shortly after BL09 ended I have been working with Dusty Linden and a group of BL department leads to forge a plan and secure land for a year-round Burning Life site.  I am very happy to be able to tell you that we were successful in obtaining four sims through Linden Labs’ Community Partnership Program and, equally exciting, the First Life Burning Man organization has officially chartered our group as a Burning Man Regional, the first-ever virtual regional group.
 
The four sims, which have previously served as support and gateway sims for the larger Burning Life festival site, now provide year-round facilities for: The Art Department and Afterburn Exhibits, Department of Mutant Vehicles, Department of Public Works, Ranger Headquarters, Burning Man inworld offices, a soon to be built Burniversity campus, a full-sim sandbox and special events area, and our NEW, year-round Lamplighter Village.”

The new Lamplighter Village is located in Hualapai sim
