SL Drama- A Trend that continues across the grid- Stacey Cardalines Reporting...

 


As often as we see "SL is virtual, but there is a real person behind that avatar" statements in people's profiles, and as right as they may be, we also have to remember that SL is a game that we play for fun. No one wants any Drama in a game we are playing for fun, and all but the most sociopathic among us seek to avoid Drama. It doesn't always work out that way, even for well-meaning people.


Life is not One Size Fits All. What you think is funny may offend some other person. You, in turn, may take offense to them casting judgement on you. Some third party may want you both to shut the uck fup. There may be some fourth party who doesn't like the way the third party looks, and there may even be a fifth party who jumps in just for the hell of it. The next thing you know, we have a World War going on.

Drama can be born of innocent circumstances. I happen to know a journalist/dancer named, uhm, Tracey who got into Drama once without evil intent. She worked at an island sim where there were certain taboo behaviors were overlooked, but not all of them. A vendor who does business on the island would throw her outfits now and then, with the dancer getting free gear and the vendor getting free advertising. Symbiotic as can be. Sounds pretty drama free so far, right?

One day, Tracey got a new outfit from the vendor, who is sort of in BDSM territory. "GERMAN SLUT" was the brand name. What could go wrong?

There are many sorts of German sluts (and nice German girls, we hate no one here at the SLE). The field is narrowed somewhat if you take into account that the vendor wishes to reach a global market, 99.9999% of whom would be unable to distinguish between different sorts of German sluts. "Bengesko niamso,"as the Gypsies say.

In the end, after the marketers and Roma get through with it, you have three archetypes. "Beer Hall Maiden," which looks like you'd have to be named Helga or Brunhilde to wear it effectively. There is the "East German Stasi Officer" look, which Tracey thought she was getting, and the "Wehrmacht/Rommel" look, which- unfortunately for Tracey- was the immediate ancestor of the East German Stasi look, fashion-wise.

A quick glance would assuage most concerns. There wasn't going to be enough of Tracey covered to offend many people. Bra, thong, garters, stockings, fishnet... and a nifty little hat. Not a swastika to be seen. The kind of outfit a girl could throw on without worrying too much about and hop out onto a dance pole in front of a crowded club.

Unfortunately, the "nifty little hat" had an Iron Cross on it. The Iron Cross is a military decoration that goes back to when Prussia was fighting Napoleon, but it was also popular in WWII. The Germans were busy people during WWII, and it is not a far leap at all from Nazi Regalia to Nazi to Holocaust. 

Remember the hypothetical person we were discussing earlier, who comes on to SL hoping to have a good time and avoid any drama at all? Well, he found some drama, dancing right in front of him in a Let's Glorify The Holocaust costume. He is well-versed in Nazi regalia, to the point where he would recognize an Iron Cross, even if it was on a short-but-not-that-unattractive dancer who was 95% nude. Unfortunately again for Tracey, the hat was the last thing she took off.

Boy, do people get angry when you dress like a Nazi these days! "The dancer had no idea what she was wearing and had no intent of offending anyone" matters very little in those circumstances. It is never going to be a Great Tip Getting Day if more than one of your customers is saying "Maybe they should toss <you> in an oven." Again, people log on to SL for Drama Free stuff, not to have a Nazi dancing in front of them, making casual small talk.




"Tracey" is logging on to SL right now. She seems innocent enough, but trouble just finds some people...

Drama in SL- DoctorKaren Kanto Reporting…

Drama... decried by many, disliked by most. What is it? Why does it happen? Is all of it bad? Can it be avoided? In this brief article, I will attempt to offer some answers to these questions.

In this context, drama usually refers to an expression or behavior that is "over the top" emotionally. The common emotions involved are anger, jealousy, and sadness. Someone expressing a great deal of joy is rarely described as a "drama queen", but sometimes even moderate levels of sadness may be so labeled. Perhaps the most common "drama" in SL relates to relationships, usually romantic or sexual in nature. Even there, different people will see things in different ways. One person may identify emotions as drama where another sees reasonable levels of emotion. For the purposes of this article, let's assume we are describing emotional expressions and behaviors that are so intense as to be likely to be seen as "drama" by most anyone in SL.

Adventures of Snake III: I'm Done!- CCoursey Reporting…


         

       At this point everyone in my vampire family hates me except Snake. I was called for the first time by Amy to tell me what a slut I was, when I hadn’t looked at Snake that way once.  One he was introduced to me as Amy’s, two I wasn’t interested at the time in that stuff, and three his avi really wasn’t that appealing to me.  I had also experienced my first day as a stripper in the clan’s club…  Let’s just say I wasn’t so great on a pole.  One of Ophelia’s friends came to the club to teach me and a few others how to emote.  ‘Brutus’ is one of the most awesome emoters I know on Second Life to this day and the best part- he’s a really great guy.  So I sign on to SL where the clan that hates my guts ignores me, another stripper ‘Genie’ befriends me, and I go to the emote class.

Ethical Communication in the Virtual World: How Important Is It To You and this Community? - Lanai Jarrico Reporting...




I’m not here to skip around all oblivious or sit pretty and paint perfect skies filled with rainbows and butterflies. I have to work here in Second Life © and want to throw in my 10 cents in on how I view Second Life’s communication health and also how we can mix and mingle in a virtual environment, in peace, with minimal to no drama and emotional issues.

Avoiding Grief in Second life- How to live Drama Free. –Nehem Resident Reporting…






Second Life can be rewarding, but it can also be a place of drama. It is how we handle drama that makes our second lives more enjoyable. 


If you have spent any time here in the virtual world, you know it can be a breeding ground for disputes. The key to avoiding drama is all in how you respond to such. There are several types of nasty situations that can leave us not only wondering what just happened, but can also lead us to no longer wish to remain in the virtual world. 

Griefing:

Alledgedly The SL Enquirer is the longest running (true) and most expected back stabbing news source on the grid. (false) According to this Avatar? I'll let you be the judge of that... - Lanai Jarrico Reporting...




     As most readers already know. The SL Enquirer likes to keep it real and address issues that present themselves in a professional manner but when I feel like I have to dodge and weave sucker punches that most would get tagged with, it gets me upset…

This person wants to make a poster with false claims... I'll tell the full story...

Drama - The Good The bad And The Necessary? Jaded Exonar Reporting....

 
 
Even the most recent of SL residents can’t escape the reality we label ‘drama’ – But what is it, and why is it there at all? Perhaps most importantly, can we really avoid it?

 
Second Life is saturated with this phenomenon of ‘drama’,and at times it seems impossible to avoid, even without any personal involvement at all! Confused? I used to be. I can remember very clearly bobbing through a welcome area as a noob, all dressed in my very best (and only) pink dotty dress, my hair tied neatly back into a pony tail, fresh pale skin blinding people in the sunlight. The virtual world was opening up before me, and there it was. BAM. A couple were shouting in Local Chat, and everyone around me slowly began taking sides. That was the moment I began to hobble swiftly and uncomfortably down the road I still try to walk today – The one that leads away from the problem. Has this always worked? In a word, no. But why?

Lanai’s Diary: Are Facebook Junkies taking it a little bit too far when it comes to friend lists, statuses and comments? -Lanai Jarrico reporting…



I have had facebook for the SL Enquirer, for a couple years and I must say I’m a Noob to everything except plastering update announcements, adding pics and accepting anyone who wishes to friend me.
 I think when Facebook is used properly it can be very beneficial to network with like minded people and promote events and whatnot. That is why I use it. This social network gives fans the choice to follow SLE updates  or use any of the other social networks we are also a part of like twitter, MySpace, YouTube, blogger, LinkedIn, Flickr, moolto, whatever. Or you can find us in Google search.
So in that respect, get up on my friend list, anyone is welcomed, just don’t expect to hear me crying about a broken nail or giving you a play by play of my rather hectic day. It is strictly SLE business and I’m very glad to say, I have had no problems with anyone on my list and appreciate the peaceful and productive nature of the content SLE fans share.
