This post has nothing to do with my blog partner, Venturino.
Venturino and I had learned a couple of things throughout the week about SL.
1. Some people just don't like their picture to be shown randomly (even without showing their faces, or being blurred out)
2. Some people really do love hunt so much that they hate hunt coordinates and since I spoil these people's fun, they spoil EVERYONE'S fun by stopping the hunt.
Let me tell you what I personally think regarding these issues (This is me, DING speaking and I am risking myself of getting boycott and banned and doomed to be in the Dlist forever and worse come to worse, I will have to leave this blog and SL for good):
I don't think it's wrong to post pictures without faces or with blurry faces. It is not like you are some hotshot in SL (even if you are, you are totally not recognizable in these pics, HELLO?) and will get stalked or talk about because of this. Furthermore, there are totally no name or info of anykind that anyone can track you down with. SO WHAT IF THE PICTURES WERE TAKEN?? Were you naked?? Did I call you names?? Did I call you 'oh the girl who is nearly naked and still has XXX prims and its YOU WHO CONTRIBUTE TO THE LAG' ? NO! I didn't do any of that. Why do you have to take this so seriously? This is second life, have fun with it. Or do you mind if I ask: Are you acting so seriously in second life because you don't have a real life??
Now, on the hunt issue:
I post the coordinates on this blog, because I personally think that people need help on hunts, and the easiest way to help out and share the good things is to directly show people where they are. Coordinates list are like a walkthrough for video games. I understand if the point of the hunt is to drive people to the place to go around, I believe that as long as people are there for your hunt, they will spend some time to explore the place that you are featuring (for example the strawberry cafe). I have gotten hate IMs since the trash and treasure hunt saying that people like me spoil their fun. Apparently I did, and due to the strawberry hunt post, the owners cut short the hunt because they feel that people will just grab the gift and go. If you really enjoy the hunt, you can always ignore the 'cheatlist'. I apologize here because I feel I am responsible for the shorten of the hunt. There is one thing that you should know, even if you can shut my mouth, you can't shut other's mouth. There are still people out there going to post coordinates through any means they can (and there is indeed somewhere else that you can get the coords for the strawberry hunt!). I am not the only one trying to do this in SL, there are thousands out there doing the same thing that I did. SO TAKE THAT!!
I say sorry if I offended anyone, if you think Venturino and I should keep posting coordinates and hunts, please leave comments; if you don't, please post too, but I don't want to listen to all those 'I love hunts, don't spoil my fun' shit. At the meantime, Ding will be on hiatus till further notice. ( I will find someone to takeover my place.)
Have a great day.
