Well, I know this Freebie day on Fashion Consolidated group got a bit stressful with the shoppers/store owners. Lots of lag, etc along with SL being unstable in general which didn't help matters, but the idea was fantastic and thanks to everyone involved.
Myself and some friends had an unpleasant incident in a store (which shall remain nameless but will never be featured in this blog). We were stranded there unable to TP, worried about relogging incase we couldn't get back online again. So what do you do? You dance about, morph your shape and dress silly - not harming anyone, until things stabilise again. Well, we were ejected from the premises with no warning and banned, and apparently reported to LL, (really, I think they have more concerns with the grid stability than a few people doing gestures in a store, so good luck with that).
Thankfully this is not a store I ever visit, otherwise I would be devastated. This is one of the things I dislike about SL, some people taking it too seriously and lacking a sense of humour (remember, first and foremost - it's a game, it's supposed to be fun!!) The only custom this store will have lost from this incident is mine and everyone I know, even though Creamy doesn't spend much money, I spend LOTS on my alts - I could have become a devoted customer. Maybe a lady on a power trip should think about that! A polite warning to stop would have been sufficient!! If the person involved is reading this, feel free to leave a comment, I'd be interested to hear what you have to say on the matter.
I didn't manage to pick up many items in the end as I was having difficulty TPing, but the good thing for me that came out of yesterday was this adorable IDEWTSYA dress free from Big Booty Big Money and the free skins from Minnu.
