DOs & DON'Ts - Take Deux

Spinning off of my Duffle-bagging post, I have for you some DOs & DON'Ts for SL. You would think most of this is common sense, but nah, it's not because if it were, why would I need to say it? Yah, that's what I thought. This list is compiled from a friends list survey. What does that mean Jell? Well, it means, it's not just my opinion, DUH! Let's start with the DOs...

DO:
  • Guys wear a shirt - just because you walk around with one off, doesn't mean we're compelled to strip ours off to join you. Yes, we know you think your skin is teh awesome.
  • Be random. Nobody likes a clone.
  • Make friends - you can never have too many.
  • Play Tringo (haha)
  • Say "Hello" to strangers. Yah, be aloha bitches!
  • Organize your inventory. Cleanliness is next to Lindeniness
  • Be respectful.
  • Try and figure things out for yourself. There are a ton of facts and FAQ's on the website.
  • Clean up after yourself. (seriously build a prim and leave it at my house, I'll punch your mom in the head & bleed you).
  • Be helpful when possible.
  • Take into consideration that the people you encounter are REAL people playing just like yourself and can be affected by you and what you say/do.
  • Expect to have to buy Lindens (at some point) otherwise you're going to look like a tard.
  • Dress in Transformer AV's and have sex in public on a dance club - how often do you get to see Optimus prime fuck Megatron?
  • Try and make something. SL is special because it's content is user created, and everyone's first try was bad. You can and will get better.
  • Nooblets: Spend the first 3 months traveling around.
  • Buy shoes before drama.
  • Ask advice.
  • Turn off your talking tummies - I don't give a shit that you're expecting a prim with eyes, much less do I wanna hear how a script says you're feeling.
  • Detach Xcite parts or you may become a victim of my Highlighted Transparent Bits post.
  • wear pants...pants are good. Certain attachments worn over pants are not.
  • Click peoples Xcite shit in a club for no reason. If they didn't want you to poke their jibblies, they'd take 'em off.
  • Take screenshots of peoples weird discolored prim balls.
DON'T:
  • Overly use obnoxious gestures. Seriously as a noob, grabbing all the free gestures you can should not be priority over skin & hair. DUH doofus.
  • Wear bling.
  • Ask RL stuffies within minutes of meeting someone.
  • Be insanely quiet. We *will* talk about you & make shit up.
  • Talk to Black Summers.
  • Open an IM to an escort. (sorry Dancer)
  • Buy land from anyone claiming they're doing you a "favor".
  • Build a lagtastic casino anywhere near Krius or he'll shoot you in the face.
  • Open an IM to a male escort.
  • Offer friendship without saying "hello" or anything first, ever!
  • Shoot random people in a non-combat zone.
  • Have noobtatstic sex right in public on a dance club.
  • Just walk into someone's house, just because it's land and you can get in doesn't mean you're supposed to.
  • Be afraid to try new things. You might like being a Gorean Furry Ageplayin' Bukkake Thug...probably not though. Especially if there's bling.
  • BE A CRAZY STALKER!
  • Hold SL above RL.
  • Expect sex.
  • Be afraid to be yourself.
  • Beg for money - You can always play tringo :p
  • Lie about yourself, because you may end up regretting it.
  • Nooblets: stop at the first nice place you find.
  • Let your inventory get out of control.
  • Be an asshole - SL is full of them, no need for too many over-achievers.
  • Be a dramite - but it's okay to laugh at other people's drama. Rofl. Fooking Spoon Carriers!
  • Be a braggart - No one cares if you won the SLdrama award.
  • Particle spam!
  • Type out the lyrics to a song that's playing. It makes you a candidate for face stabbin.
This is just a short list. I'm sure there's more to proper casual SL etiquette, but well, it's possible that I didn't catch it in this post. Feel free to add your two Ls in comments if you think I missed something.

Do take screenshots of peoples weird discolored prim balls.

Don't type out the lyrics to a song that's playing. It makes you a candidate for face stabbin.
