Please think twice

0Nadia0 Resident Posted by in General - July 11, 2018, 3:09 pm


I would like to ask all fellow fishers to consider this:

Please think twice before you hit the “vote down” button on your HUD. Perhaps you do not like the sim outlay; perhaps you find the theme offensive; perhaps you are experiencing lag; perhaps you feel it is too hard or difficult to access the buoy area; perhaps…

Regardless of the above, I would like to encourage you to remember that, Land Owners should be free to do as they wish with their land. Granted, everything is within reason of course; say a Land Owner who put the buoy 45m in the air and set no fly is not exactly helping the fishers, right? Apart from extremes like that, Land Owners do pay a lot of money for hosting a buoy. First buying one which I am sure you know is not that cheap, then filling lindens into it and pay both for the actual budget and some taxes as well. It adds up!

Luckily the vast majority of fishers are nice and pleasant, polite and generally happy for the opportunity to visit various lands and fish. It is the few, the very few who do not see the cost and efforts from the Land Owners I would like to urge, to ask, to request or even beg not to use the vote down button on your HUDs.

Take a random red buoy for instance: Red buoys start with 0 votes; they do not have the option of hosting multiplier events (which generates votes continuously while the event is running, regardless whether or not the vote stations are actually clicked); they are fixed at a single tax rate so while they seemingly are cheaper to purchase they do cost some lindens to keep active in the long run. And least not forget: red buoys are wonderful for fishers who are after bio waste!

What does that even mean? Well in short: a red buoy depends solely on the vote station to gain website rank! Is a website ranking really important? Maybe not, what do I know, it depends I guess, on your view. My personal view is this: I do not care if my own buoys are ranked first spot or second, 50th or last of all. What I do care about is the principle (if that is the right word?) why would anyone come to a fishing place and then leave a negative vote? If you visit a land you do not like then simply leave and find a place for your liking :o) please, please, please do NOT vote a buoy down out of frustrations or even spite. Please do not.

It is highly discouraging to see buoys drop in points and will eventually lead to fewer and fewer buoys which in turn will limit the fishers’ opportunities to fish at all.

Thank you for reading until this point,

Julia / Nadia

there is only one question: why is it possible to hit the vote down button? what purpose does it serve?

The down vote is for a place that is listed in the hud  yets when you arrive to the land there i s not a buoy at the location .

that does not give me any real good sense. it would be enough if the fisher gave a GM a corresponding info and GM removed the buoy from the list. It would be even easier if the buoy would automatically be removed from the list as soon as the buoy is no longer accessible from the server. all just a matter of programming ;-) and then we would not need a vote down button which provides to grievances.
