HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN SL?
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A LONDON GREETER?
SINCE FEB 2011
WHAT FIRST INTERESTED YOU IN BEING A GREETER?
I was born in Hyde Park London and loved the helpful and friendly environment , explored sl but always returned to the community there , so as I am there a lot decided I may as well help others arriving into sl and meet even more exciting and mainly friendly people. Plus share the things I’ve learned with them to make there SL experience good too. Learn as I go some days which is fantastic even after over 2 years SL can amaze me.
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE INTERESTING THINGS YOU HAVE SEEN OR HEARD WHILE GREETING?
I think every day is interesting you never know what is going to happen, if it’s going to be busy or quiet. I’ve heard things good and bad, as many are on their first visit to sl they sometimes become abusive and scared by it luckily most with some help and time get past that , the ones who don’t are generally alts that like to grief for pleasure and there’s a place for them I’m sure but not in Hyde Park we like to keep it fun there 🙂 a lot of people are regulars to the park so we have a good atmosphere and generally relaxed so on arrival new residents feel homely and regularly return which is great you get to see them grow in sl , buy a house , buy a shop, get land , married etc , etc . To me that makes it worthwhile I’ve helped someone make their way in sl and I end up being like a aunty who listens to their problems, whatever it maybe or helps when they lose their hair , there shape, there house .for a new resident to im me and say I’ve done this and I’ve don’t that and be excited about it just makes my greeting day all the better 🙂 love the positive side of greeting hate the dark side the grief the abuse the fact that people actually come to sl to be nasty for fun can be annoying and tense some days but luckily the good always wins over the bad.
IF YOU COULD CHOOSE TO BRING ANYONE FROM RL INTO HYDE PARK AND GREET THEM, WHO WOULD IT BE? WHY?
I’d have to be selfish and say Michael Buble so I could get real close to him lol (well we all have a fantasy right! lol)
