Want to know where I got this title? Read carefully below….
Linden Lab recently announced an event where “Fashion Experts” will be chatting with folks, answering questions, and posing some of their own in the SL Forums. I was chosen to be one of those Fashion Experts (among a pretty august group of bloggers and SL fashion leaders), so it was quite an honor for me. On Monday, September 19, from 9 am slt to 4 pm slt, I will be available to answer questions, bring up topics, and generally have fun. I really hope you can join me.
That being said, the question is where is this event going on and what does it mean? The “event” is taking place in the Fashion Forums for SL, rather than a place in-world, which is a new kind of “event” for SL it seems.
Now, I have to admit I am not a Forums regular.. I simply spend too much time IN world to be on the forums. However there are lots of people who LOVE SL who might be sitting at a desk or in a coffeeshop where they can’t log in to SL but still want to get their fix or might be online when friends aren’t and want to talk to others, and those are the folks using the forums most actively. I am joining in on Monday to see what fun we can make in the Forums.
This is a really brief and wholly incomplete tutorial about how to participate in the Forums (because I am hoping you’ll log in some time on Monday to speak to me and participate).
To get there, either link through here or go to the Second Life community portal and make sure you sign in. If you go to the portal, you will see this. Click on the forum file tab:
Scroll down and click on “Fashion.” That’s where we’ll be.
Look for posts with my name (“Harper Beresford,” in case you forgot). I’ll be posing topics, asking questions, and commenting on other posts.
To read my post, click on the subject (in this case, “Hi everyone!”) and hit reply.
You’ll see the following screen and in there you can post photos, links, emoticons—anything your heart desires. I REALLY hope to see some photos because we want to make this a fashion free-for-all in the forums.
Join me, Harper Beresford, Fashion Expert, Monday September 19, from 9 am slt to 4 pm slt, to discuss fashion, fun and life. Bring your photos, links, and let’s burn the Forums up!
P.S. Want to know how I made that spiffy badge on the left? Read this awesome Forum post.
I’ll see you there!
P.P.S. Thank you, Wildcat Furse, Forum Advisor, for your help :))
