AW Prime refurbish

Nov 4, 1998, 11:02pm
Some people on the America worlds think it looks better than their own
ground zero, if this site about their 1999 reunion is anything to go by!

Tammy, what's the matter with you? You seem to be directing that at
EVERYONE in this thread, but only two people flamed you for your question
(Andras and Eep). Make that 3 now, if you wish to include me, too. Maybe
you should focus only on just the flamers responses and how you feel about
it. Your picking on others here also, even the ones who offered you
non-flaming help like the suggestion of a batch file.

What company and what world have you started in AW, by the way? Are you the
same Tammy Jo who was horribly upset in another message, when you discovered
that you can't 'kill' tourists who come to your world?

Hi, I'm curious, what's <NT>? I've never heard of this. Is this something
that indicates that the message's subject says it all and there was no need
to repeat it in the message body? Note, I'm not joining in the flaming
here, I really have never heard of this.

Channels inside worlds.

3d Anarchy has done exactly that. They have made a 3d, building and
chatting IRC client. They are still in pre-first release beta, but
absolutely amazing so far. You set up the worlds you build as a 3d IRC
channels. I wrote a lot about them in some previous posts here, but I don't
know if I mentioned the IRC part. If they are deleted or you can't find
them, email me, and I'll let you know more.

The Hit(ler)bots have already been perfected to an art, I think.

Wouldn't this generate random clutter?

Ok, I apologize for the sarcasm (especially towards someone I don't know),
but my points behind it remain the same, as I explain further down in a few
places.

[View Quote]
I think that people will just get more creative, and also innocent strings
in things like pussycat, etc would get zapped. I was hearing of people
getting ejected a few weeks ago for such things, and it seemed that ejection
bots were being tested out. They must have had problems with them or
stopped using them when it began to be discussed publicly, though. I did
not like this automated way to deal with people. It feels like it went to
the point of ridiculous. Also, the world ratings are there for a purpose.
It's fine to guard for the kids, but the option should remain for those of
us who wish to be treated as the adults we are.

Restricted zones in an otherwise non-private world would FEEL unfriendly.
Such an exclusive club could easily just have it's doorman-bot exclude ALL
tourists, though, as far as that part of the problem goes.

Ok, that WAS one of my most venom-spitting posts I've made ever here, it's
true. Being one who has been banned without being even given an official
reason, (by human 'bots', instead though), I think the whole
banning/ejection control thing has gotten out of hand. It's just a big
power trip when used in the 'public' worlds. Mute is there for a reason.
If mute is expanded to include their name showing too, then even that
wouldn't offend anyone who doesn't want to see it. If a person is banned or
ejected, then someone has made the 'mute' choice for you. For instance, I
find it offensive that a guy named Hitler was not ejected when there were
lots of complaints, but people who admitted to being gay, were. Now, I
could care less who someone loves or sleeps with (as long as it's adult
consenting humans), but I don't like people representing genocidal maniacs
in my face. That's my individual mute choice. Everyone has different
morals and comfort levels. Expanding the individuals muting functions to
include names would be better. Also, giving it an optional memory so
they'll be muted for you any other time they appear would be good.

>I personally feel that if I myself 'behave' then a HitBot doesn't bother me
>at all, instead it feels good to know there are ways to handle

I never was ejected for 'bad' behaviour, ever, in my whole time in AW
(years). I was outright banned for (I suspect) asking a question in an
outside forum, which should have caused no problems if the answer to that
question showed honesty on the company's part. Instead, the answer revealed
something they were hoping to keep hidden. I believe they redirected their
anger and embarrassment of being caught towards those of us who had every
right to ask about it in the first place.


>

>uncontrolled use of animal bots everywhere ? )


No, I am thinking that if I entered that world and chose to wear a bird av,
and unbeknownst to me it triggered off a follower bot, it would just be
plain creepy and irritating (shoo, mosquito!). My remark about lonely
people was because I can not see ANY reason such a 'feature' would be
needed. Maybe a new 'flock of birds' avatar would be OK, because you then
ARE all of them. But to be followed by extra birds? What for?

As for the the ones that build random nests or whatever, it would create
lots of unbuildable areas, useful if you want to control lot sizes, but
otherwise like when you find a stray, (possibly clashing) ground piece in
your way.

>I think the idea is good, think of what value it would add to a
>'nature-world' :-))


As long as it's not on a public world, then I would agree. It could be used
as a building tool.

> 2. Why did you join? What triggered your registering as a citizen?

I was in awe (no pun intended) over the fact that one could build in a
shared, very huge set of worlds, and also chat live in the 3d settings.
Citizenships were free when I joined so I didn't hesitate. Just reading the
instructions on how to build instantly converted me. I just had to sign up.

> 3. How long have you remained a citizen?

It was so long ago, I've forgotten. My cit # is 161709, so I guess that
dates me.

> 4. What is the best feature of AW for you?

The whole thing overall, but I especially like getting caught up in
building.

> 5. What have you created in AW?

An out of date texture yard, and some unfinished stuff. I've just begun
building my new home base in aw making a lot of use of the new large picture
objects, and the new trees etc. Outside of AW, I've made a website where I
offer a bunch of free textures and objects (4519 plants!). At some point in
the future, I intend to add a large selection of 3d skybox textures that are
designed with AW in mind.

> 6. What activities do you enjoy in AW?

Besides building, I like lurking in chat areas like the gate or aw ground
zero. Sometimes chatting too.

I'm 43 now, and back when I was a kid there were some very violent cartoons.
There were no home computers. The cartoons had a lot of attempted murders
and horrible accidents, yet us kids would only copy them in a pretending and
funny manner. In every large group of people however, there exists a small
number who are sociopaths who would do harm whether the idea came from
something they saw portrayed or something they made up. These few
individuals would do harm no matter what. Whether it's nature or nurture
remains to be determined.

Sometimes I like to just lurk in chat areas like AW ground zero, not

but it's the lurking that's got me confused. Twice now, when I've gone to
the Gate, tourists were able to see my name over my head when I hadn't yet
spoken. Is the Gate set up to show everyone's name even if they're lurking?
If so, no big deal, I can re-log in as a tourist for my antisocial lurking.
