KerryJ’s Idea – tips for noobs like me…

Posted in Educational with tags , , on July 30, 2008 by Mister A

I just read a blog post by Kerrj about tips for newcomers to SL and I commented on it…I thought it was such a good idea, I decided to do the same thing with my I don’t know if I can think of 10…but I will think of as many as possible…

1. Read the blog post at KerryJ’s Blog. There are some excellent ideas there.

2. If you are engaged in any type of animation like sitting or doing the salsa, don’t teleport somewhere until after you stand up or stop the animation…or else when you get there you will look normal to yourself and be in animation to everyone else…

3. Don’t do things (like pole dance) that you wouldn’t want other people to see you do…because everyone there has a camera.

4. Sunn mentioned this, I think…Read blogs by teachers in SL.

5. Don’t be afraid of Unicorn-Rabbit-Snakedonkeys…They are people, too.

6. Help others whenever you can…I think that is a good way to reinforce your own learning.

7. In your own profile…you can save your favorite places in the tab labeled Picks.

8. Dance.

9. ctrl-shift y turns the lights on.

10. ctrl-shift h sends you home

11. Be moderate your online activity…it can be addictive…so learn to balance…something I really struggle with…

I hate stopping on non prime numbers so I went to 11…If you have any tips for newcomers to SL…please post them in the comments…they will definitely help this newcomer…Thanks KerryJ for this excellent idea…I will make a similar post in my blog since I just wrote all this anyway…
