Poor Charlotte (Cyber Bullying)

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/charlotte-dawson-twitter-attack-sparks-call-for-changes-to-laws-against-cyber-bullying/story-e6frf7jo-1226461962215

You may have read about Charlotte Dawson and her stand against cyber bullying esp if you are from down under like I am.  Charlotte originally from New Zealand recently outed a cyber bully/troll who made unacceptable remarks regarding suicide and Charlotte called her out on it.   This encouraged the troll to tell Charlotte she should kill herself. Charlotte tracked the troll down to her place of work and confronted her, she also contacted her employer, resulting in the troll’s suspension from her place of employment.  Sadly this resulted in hundreds of nasty tweets aimed at Charlotte, from people who felt she shouldn’t have outed this low life.  It seems it was all too much for Charlotte and she was hospitalised yesterday.

Despite the fact that Charlotte was somewhat unpleasant about her Homeland, which also happens to be mine, I want to congratulate Charlotte.  This is subject very personal to me and dear to my heart because I have been the victim of cyber bullying myself, by a very malicious, devious and particularly vicious individual who was utterly relentless in her quest.  You can simply turn off your computer, however when you have a business that is perpetuated in some aspects by social media, it’s not quite so easy to do and frankly why the hell should you.  It was frightening and intimidating and I wish I’d had the courage Charlotte has demonstrated.   I know how this feels, it’s awful.  I wish Charlotte all the very best and I hope she has a speedy recovery.

This is and example of what can happen when bullys and trolls go to far, it’s a very real phenomenon and I for one will be extremely happy to see laws around this stuff and for these sorts individuals to be made accountable in real life for their actions on the internet.  There is one thing you can take comfort in and that’s this; cyber bully’s and trolls have far to much time on their hands, they are insecure cowards who really ought to get a life!


ONE VOICE NEEDS YOU

I hate to admit it but I’ve been living under a rock it seems.  I was unaware of the recent situation of Gala Phoenix, one of SL’s original  skin artists. I’m still catching up.  If you are not aware please visit here and catch up as I have http://salomesays.com/blog/2012/06/the-curio-skin-scandal/

An amazing group of SL’rs have put together at very short notice The One Voice Fundraiser, which is to support  Gala Phoenix and raise money for the imminent court case, court cases of this kind run to 10’s of thousands of US dollars.  It is my understanding from what I’ve read that all of Gala’s content has been removed by the lab and she is suffering a loss of income due to this.

As a creator of original content for SL this is a hugely distressing situation, if Gala doesn’t win this court case, we are all at risk of this kind of frivolous misuse of the law.  For personal reasons I can relate to Gala’s situation, as I have had the misfortune to be in similar situation myself, although not to this extent. There are people who have a blatant disrespect for the DMCA process, there are people willing to commit perjury to prove a point or a personal vendetta and it’s a painful and bewildering situation to find yourself in.

I wish Gala Phoenix all the very best, my thoughts and the thoughts of many others are with her.

Below is the slurl to the fund raiser and a link if you prefer to donate direct.  By assisting with this awful situation we are all assisting ourselves and hopfully alleviating the risk so this doesn’t happen again.  Help protect the content creators you love, help protect their IP and be apart of this.

Relay For Life Home & Garden Expo

The Home & Garden Expo opened today, it’s important to note that this is not just the coming together of Second Lifes most amazing designers, but it’s an opportunity to raise a ton of money for Relay For Life. Designer Prims is once again honored to be invited to share a sim with Urbanized and What Next, two amazing themed sims creating a beautiful forest like environment to showcase some of SL’s most prominent designers.

This year the standards are incredibly high and there are some literally jaw dropping builds.  What Next has done an amazing job creating huge cardboard boxes to show case their designs, it’s a must see.  I have also fallen in love with L&K Prefabs, both are located on Sim2.  There is so much to see I can’t possibly mention all the amazingness, just get on over and take a look

Designer Prims has released 3 new designs, all proceeds of The Beach House and the Holiday Skyhome will go to RFL for the duration of the expo.

If you are a Home & Garden enthusiast you don’t want to miss this expo

Back To Black

This event is so personal to me and I can’t thank the team at Chic Management enough for being so forth coming about the material.

On the 11th of February Chic Management opens its doors for a very special event, an awareness champagne for Mental Health.  I have personally suffered with clinical depression on and off for many years, often completely unaware of it, I was just depressed ,that’s normal right?  Well I thought so for a very long time.

Designers have been given a special inspirational word and have been asked to create original content based on the inspirational word.  I was given Comfort, which is perfect for me in more ways than one.  After a long struggle comfort is what I have found.  As a prefab designer comfort was the perfect inspiration for me, because during my darkest hours home was always the place that afforded me the most comfort.

Designers are also given the option to share their personal experience if they wish, I have chosen to give a very candid recollection of my own private struggle and how I overcame it, I have written up a note card and it comes with both of items at the event.  My wish is that by doing so I can give at least one person hope.

This is an event, it’s not a freebie hunt,  I have elected to give any and all proceeds of my design to charity, even if you don’t make a purchase please visit the Back To Black event, there is a ton of information available and I’ve included an inspiration freebie which also contains my personal story.

I also want to thank Keira Seerosev and Chic Management for their passion and bravery and for delivering this incredibly important message to the community.

Fab Feb Freebies @ Designer Prims

This month Designer Prims is part of two fabulous hunts; Februalcious and Home Is Where The Heart is.  Both are starting 1 Feb that’s TODAY, yay!

Februalicious- designers were asked to create an item that represented what February meant them.  For me, living in New Zealand, February is the height of summer, so I thought what better than a modern beach cabin

Home is where the heart is- this hunt is organised by the amazing Whiz Wonder and Prim Perfect magazine. So I created the Chic Abode

Both of these cute little homes have a texture change menu, security management system and low prims

Don’t’ miss it

No Place I’d Rather Be

It’s a long weekend here in New Zealand, so I have some extra time on my hands to finish up a design I started a little while ago. Designer Prims No Place I’d Rather Be, is a beautiful designer home with the animated pool being the central focus point.  There are two great patios surrounding the pool with access from all aspects of the home.  The home is open, light and spacious, come see.
