Ian – Yet another example of the disadvantages of being a premier member. As well as having "exclusive access" to almost no bonus content seconds before the common herd, you also don't get to see what The Southern Yeti would look like in a swimsuit if he was a narcissitic cartoon version of his real self. 😉Posted 7 years ago
I see the advert you're talking about. I assumed it was one of those "Avatar yourself" picture things.
I've a girlfriend (lets say 'she has a nice personality, if you get my drift) she regularly uses these 2nd life avatar web sites. Her character is in her words "how she'd like to be" so perhaps it's full of "happy jolly folk" enjoying what the rest of us take for granted? A life free from petty ridicule and prejudice?
I'm aware of the double standard in my post, feel free to point it out though if it makes you feel betterPosted 7 years agojohn_drummerMember
I see that ad too and frankly it is a waste of space.
I say get some proper ads instead; you know, like the ones you see in the currant bun 😉
Or even the 'pointless tat' ads like the 'big slipper', 'razor comb' or 'incontinence pants' as described by Billy ConnollyPosted 7 years ago
(It may just be me, but) I'm getting a LOT of adverts for this at the sides.
It appears to be a 3D chat room in which I can create an avatar which is a perky red-haired cartoon girl with enormous, liquid eyes and gigantic anti-gravity breasts, dress myself in a range of diaphanous glam outfits involving fishnet, peacock feathers, little shorts and the like and then get married (20 weddings going on today, apparently).
It's possible (no doubt) that I could also create an online version of myself as a big, beefy cartoon boy with rippling muscles and a well-controlled goatee and then dress myself like a fireman, but the adverts do not suggest this option and to be frank it is considerably less appealing. 8)
I'm not about to make my search history even more troubling-yet-irresistible to the great hive-mind of online advertising without some basic due diligence. What is this thing? Is it big with the kids? Should I bother?
Any thoughts or experiences? 😀Posted 7 years ago
