Just another virtual world traveler… though quirkier than most!
I know what you’re probably thinking, “that Mina sure has a lot a nerve giving US a call to action!” After all, I am the new kid on the block. However, being the new kid, perhaps I can shed some light on a few things that may be overlooked by those who have been on the grid a long time. You know what I mean? When we are around a while, we get used to the status quo and find comfort in it. Sometimes we forget what it was like to be “the new kid” and it takes a shiny young (well young to the grid anyways) whippersnapper to remind us of a few things. Now, I’m not talking about things that will end world hunger, or that will even put a little “oomph!” back into the economy. I’m just talking about ways that will make our lovely grid just a little more enjoyable. So, I put forth to you, creators, a small call to action! (By small I mean, teeny, tiny… minuscule even. Will take all of 5 minutes, then POOF! You’re done!)
And… the challenge is… <insert requisite drum roll here> become more active in the OSGrid Forums! Yep. That’s it. See? Easy peasy, right?!?! Here is how I see it, we create things to share with the rest of the grid, correct? We take considerable time and effort to package up our items and set them out where they can be freely perused by our fellow residents. Here’s the rub, no one can partake of your super awesome offerings, if they can’t find them. Are you following me here? As far as I know there is no centralized listing of shopping regions, and, even if you post in classifieds, sometimes search doesn’t function right. (I seem to have a bad case of that with Imprudence where when I open search, I crash…perhaps it’s a Mac thing?) So it’s really kind of like that whole, “if a bear poops in the woods” thing or is it, “if a tree falls in the woods?” ‘Erm..whatever.. anyways… So, all I am asking is that, those of us that create things, go ahead and post a little something in the OSGrid Forums under Region Showcase (please use the Classifieds section if you are actually going to list an advertisement) letting people know where (and when if your regions aren’t always up and running) other residents can come by and shop to their little hearts content!
Are you with me?! Can I get a fist pump and a “hell yeah?!” No? Ok well… as long as you post. 😉 Meet you there!
