patches, tweaks some things...not for the fainthearted...:)

[15:52] Doraemon Howley is Online
[15:52] Philled Graves: btw... AJ.. the thanked me for the suggestions.. ?
but doesn't have any plans for upgrades in the near future
[15:52] Zotarah Shepherd: Every teacher in SL should have a MystiTool. So ?
many things in it.
[15:52] AJ Brooks: although the notices to the SLED list are amusing ?
sometimes
[15:52] Philled Graves: the = she
[15:52] AJ Brooks: Mysti?, Philled?
[15:52] Philled Graves: yes
[15:52] Geo Meek: can you explane that?
[15:52] AJ Brooks: ah - ok - I'll toss my two cents in also - but she's ?
not been online as much as she used to, so perhaps her time to develop is ?
limited explain wht, geo - which thing? ty vic
[15:53] Geo Meek: btw... AJ.. the thanked me for the suggestions.. but ?
doesn't have any plans for upgrades in the near future
[15:53] AJ Brooks: Philled?
[15:53] Philled Graves: yes that was me
[15:53] Geo Meek: sorry this AJ Brooks: ah - ok - I'll toss my two cents ?
in also - but she's not been online as much as she used to, so perhaps her ?
time to develop is limited
[15:53] Philled Graves: i dropped Mysti a note after our conversation ?
about table configurations oooo anybody else getting chat de'ja vu?
[15:54] JeanClaude Vollmar: So is this table a purchase somewhere?
[15:54] AJ Brooks: lol
[15:54] Jessie Rowlands: Me
[15:54] AJ Brooks: no - its part of the enitre mystitool
[15:54] Zotarah Shepherd: The table is in the MystiTool
[15:54] AstroGrl Enzo: can you give some ideas what mistitools do?
[15:54] Terran Timeless: yes
[15:54] AstroGrl Enzo: besides the table
[15:54] AJ Brooks: oh my - its better to go to her store and get her ?
notecard there is SO much stuff to the tool it is, IMHO, the must have tool in SL
[15:55] Zotarah Shepherd: It would be great for her to come here and do a ?
presentation for us about her great tool.
[15:55] Philled Graves: i'll pass a landmark for her store to anybody who ?
wants to IM me
[15:55] JeanClaude Vollmar: Ooh, a LM please? Anyone.
[15:55] AJ Brooks: even the free version rocks, but the paid version ?
(which is only $395 I think) is even better
[15:55] AJ Brooks: use teh Avendale location
[15:55] Geo Meek: its free to sl mentors
[15:55] AJ Brooks: blumfield is older yes - but its not easy or quick to become a mentor
[15:56] Terran Timeless: please
[15:56] Zotarah Shepherd: I always go to Blumfield
[15:56] AJ Brooks: and not worth doing just for the mystitol - there are ?
other great reasons to be a mentor Geo - you wnt to talk about the mentor program? since some folks may not know about it
[15:56] Philled Graves: anybody else who wants the the LM just IM me
[15:56] Geo Meek: if i can do anyone can and if you lile teaching well it ?
gos hand in hand
[15:56] Amos Porta: i dont know
[15:57] AJ Brooks: I didn't say it was hard, just a long process and not ?
worth doing just to save $395 but tell us about it
[15:57] Polaris Grayson: we left the mentor program a while back because ?
of the flaming
[15:57] Zotarah Shepherd: I wish I had a MystiTool on the teen grid. They ?
are not transferable so I cannot take one over and she cannot make them ?
transferable. I really miss it there.
[15:57] AJ Brooks: yes they are I have mine on the teen grid
[15:57] JeanClaude Vollmar: Thanks!
[15:57] Geo Meek: helping and learning to help is allways a good idea
[15:58] AJ Brooks: Geo - perhaps you might want to explain what the ?
Mentor Program is - or perhaps someone else would like to
[15:58] Geo Meek: i must be at the wrong metting sorry
[15:58] Zotarah Shepherd: I went to the TG before I even knew about the ?
MystiTool.
[15:58] AJ Brooks: oh - yeah - so you can't get one now
[15:59] Polaris Grayson: has the flaming settled down in the mentor ?
program lately
[15:59] AJ Brooks: Ok - would someone else like to talk about what the SL ?
Mentor Program is
[15:59] Amos Porta: what is the MystiTool?
[15:59] Mercury Barnes: I tried Mysti, but kind of prefer "best of ?
breeds" from others (though Mysti is incredibly useful).
[15:59] Catherine Soderstrom: THe SL Mentor program is a group of ?
volunteers who help new (and not so new) users
[15:59] AJ Brooks: fisrt the mentor program, then the mysti tool
[15:59] Zotarah Shepherd: I think it is good for teachers to know about ?
the SL Mentors program. Many of my friedns are mentors and I will do the ?
training as soon as I can get some free time.
[15:59] Catherine Soderstrom: For me being a SL mentor gave me a chanceto ?
learn about many new things in SL- and gave me access to orientation ?
island (so I could rescue my students)
[15:59] Geo Meek: people helping people
[16:00] AJ Brooks: please say YES if you are a Mentor (AJ's famous straw ?
poll)
[16:00] Terran Timeless: I was helped immensely by mentors on Help Island
[16:00] Catherine Soderstrom: I was able to connect with many long time ?
residents with a wealth of knowledge about sl :)
[16:00] Terran Timeless: Harper Beresford led me to many educators
[16:00] AJ Brooks: Are or Were, I should say
[16:00] Polaris Grayson: WAS a mentor
[16:00] Zotarah Shepherd: Great Catherine.
[16:00] Geo Meek: yes
[16:00] Catherine Soderstrom: Yes, am a mentor
[16:00] Mercury Barnes: Welcome centers are quite important to the ?
"acceptance" of SL -- many folks bail before they really give the place a ?
chance -- a good welcoming can help (a lot).
[16:01] AJ Brooks: Polaris, why did you leave the program?
[16:01] Terran Timeless: to have an educator watching for colleagues is ?
important
[16:01] Mercury Barnes: I pick 'em off when I hanging around -- groups ?
are so important.
[16:01] Polaris Grayson: too much flaming the new mentors.... it was like ?
mentors needed to know everything... when in fact we were all learning
[16:01] AJ Brooks: community is so important its what makes SL truly relevant and how do folks find out how to become part of the ?
mentor program
[16:02] Zotarah Shepherd: I have met teqachers who were turned off to SL ?
at first because their first "home" place was such an awful experience. ?
There were no Mentors around when I started.
[16:02] JeanClaude Vollmar: How do faculty new to this get a mentor?
[16:02] Polaris Grayson: I found that teaching new members one one one ?
outside the mentor group was much better
[16:02] Mercury Barnes: You have to get through the tech, though, before ?
you can settle in to a community.
[16:02] Zotarah Shepherd: I mentor new teachers through ELVEN and on my ?
own when I meet them.
[16:03] Geo Meek: all teaching is allmost allways one on one
[16:03] AJ Brooks: how does one find out about hte official SL Mentor ?
Program?
[16:03] Catherine Soderstrom: To become a member of the SL Mentor program ?
you fill out an application on the SL websited
[16:03] Catherine Soderstrom: ?
https://secure-web22.secondlife.com/account/volunteer_account.php?lang=en
[16:03] Mercury Barnes: I agree, 1 on 1 is best, but scaling would seem ?
to be a problem -- what do folks here do?
[16:03] AJ Brooks: ty Catherine
[16:03] Geo Meek: find a good teacher helps =finding
[16:04] Polaris Grayson: yes, but finding who needed the help was ?
becoming more and more problematic... new mentors were scared to ask ?
questions and help because of the flaming
[16:04] Catherine Soderstrom: It can take up to 3 months for your ?
application to be processed, and you have to have at least 6 months in ?
world
[16:04] You: Like any good teacher, you teach and have your students ?
learn enough to become teachers themselves...
[16:04] AJ Brooks: and what do mentors actually do - hang out at welcome ?
areas?
[16:04] Geo Meek: that shoud goto QA mentor group
[16:04] Catherine Soderstrom: Yes, they hang out in welcome areas, ?
orientation islands, help islands, and offer classes
[16:05] Terran Timeless: there are a pack of them at the Help Islands
[16:05] AJ Brooks: great
[16:05] Geo Meek: as a mentor i help where waver i am
[16:05] Philled Graves: hey folks.. just visited teh application link and ?
got the following
[16:05] Terran Timeless: few of them are on the lookout for questions ?
from educators
[16:05] Philled Graves: Volunteer Info In our continuing effort to make ?
the Second Life Volunteer program the finest in Second Life, we have ?
adopted new processing steps for Apprentice mentors to advance from ?
Apprentice to full Mentor. Recently, our application processing rate has ?
dropped to accommodate these changes. Rather than let the application list ?
grow at its present pace and force residents who desire to participate in ?
the Volunteer program to wait weeks if not months to hear from us, we have ?
decided to stop accepting applications until we have processed the list of ?
residents currently in the pipeline. Thank you for your patience. The ?
Second Life Volunteer Team
[16:05] Mercury Barnes: Some do hang out in Welcome Areas, but their ?
impact Vs. the great mass of others is minimal.
[16:05] Polaris Grayson: im glad to hear that
[16:05] AJ Brooks: ok - so no more new mentors at the moment
[16:06] Geo Meek: may i have that URL please?
[16:06] AJ Brooks: well - that might make sense someone asked about hte mystitool
[16:06] Catherine Soderstrom: They're finshing processing the last batch ?
this month- we got a group notice today that the apps should be back up at ?
the end of the month (so maybe check in a few weeks)
[16:06] AJ Brooks: straw poll again
[16:06] Philled Graves: scrollup.. i linked from the one that was posed ?
in chat
[16:06] AJ Brooks: say YES if you ahve a Mystitool
[16:06] Philled Graves: yep
[16:06] Mercury Barnes: Yes
[16:06] AJ Brooks: yes
[16:06] Catherine Soderstrom: yes
[16:06] Zotarah Shepherd: YES - love it!
[16:06] Terran Timeless: no
[16:06] Philled Graves: iv'e given out about 9 of the lms
[16:07] AJ Brooks: only 5 people here have it? wow ok - well - you five, did you pay and if so - was it ?
worth it?
[16:07] JeanClaude Vollmar: This is the first I've heard of it.
[16:07] AJ Brooks: well - hold on that might be too personal would you pay?
[16:07] Terran Timeless: yes
[16:07] Mercury Barnes: Worth the price I guess...though I love Thomas ?
Conovers stuff.
[16:07] Catherine Soderstrom: yes, it was totally worth it... used the ?
free one for almost a year, but I love the additional features on the full ?
paid one
[16:08] AJ Brooks: for those who use it - what are your favorite ?
feature(s)
[16:08] Geo Meek: its a good tool but there are many tools free
[16:08] Zotarah Shepherd: YES I reccommend it to everyone including in my ?
Griefing issues workshop.

147, 296).

griefed 3 times in the first week haha
[16:10] AJ Brooks: lol you used up your times all at once
[16:11] Philled Graves: labled off\ensive tools ?
kill/toss/trap/drag/orbit/crush/disrupt
[16:11] Zotarah Shepherd: I guess
[16:11] AJ Brooks: the griefing question is a good one, we'll be devoting ?
an entire meeting to it in August
[16:11] Mercury Barnes: Good.
[16:11] Philled Graves: also has some sim monitoring tools if you're ?
interested in tracking sim performacne
[16:11] JeanClaude Vollmar: I haven't, but the libraries must have. They ?
put out a note about well know ones griefing libraries.
[16:11] AJ Brooks: not that we cant talk about it now - was just a note
[16:11] Delia Coleman: i was surprised that the very unexciting and ?
ghostown sim of Microsoft had pornography plastered all over it... the ?
Bill Gates gods had no idea... took them a few days to realise this
[16:12] Zotarah Shepherd: Hypatia also does a good basic griefing ?
awareness class
[16:12] AJ Brooks: lol
[16:12] JeanClaude Vollmar LOL
[16:12] AJ Brooks: how ironic and appropriate Delia
[16:12] Delia Coleman: *chuckles*

letting me go through walls easily.
[16:14] AJ Brooks: oh - another thing the mysti tool does - (sorry) lets ?

to simply track traffic and duration of stay
[16:14] AJ Brooks: really?
[16:14] Philled Graves: yep good stuff
[16:14] Zotarah Shepherd: I went to Vassar sim with Buridans group and ?
was surprised that anyone would grief the Sistine Chapel.
[16:14] AJ Brooks: anyone have a LM for his store
[16:14] Philled Graves: of course
[16:15] Mercury Barnes: It's actually kind of important to get folks a ?
flight feather, or something -- many SIMS, etc., are above the 250 m ?
point.
[16:15] JeanClaude Vollmar: Does someone have an LM for TC store, stuff?
[16:15] Philled Graves: I"M the LMking

to agree to the terms of be orbited away! LOL

[16:16] AJ Brooks: anyone else have any tools the like
[16:16] Zotarah Shepherd: I have a few flight items. If I didn't have a ?
flight feather on the TG I would not be able to get up to some of the ?
locations - like the NASA Space station. We cannot TP on our Eye4you.
[16:16] AJ Brooks: you can't TP on E4Y?
[16:16] Geo Meek: free tools?

of important for managing griefers.

the Maps
