Is it just me... or do people seem extra uptight lately? Just in the last week or so. I mean, people just bitching because they can, or being rude where it's just totally not necessary, impatient...etc. Now don't take my words wrong, the vast majority of you are great to deal with! :) However, the crankypants seem to REALLY be coming out lately. Even some of the customer service reps *waves at you guys* have been noticing a spike in general spazzyness. If we're experiencing this - others must be!
So here's my official public notice to the angries:
Be nice to us designers. We're not evil. We never have set out to "get you". We don't purposely do things to make you mad. Quite the opposite in fact! I always try to keep the consumer in mind. Always. I think the majority of larger SL retailers do. Things we do or don't do, generally are chosen by what we THINK will make the majority happiest as possible. Anyway I kinda went off on a tangent there. The bottom line is: when you're dealing with people please just try to be respectful. It's a stressful time of year, so while I understand being grouchy, it's just really not needed.
THAT being said. Lemme address something:
I know no transfer sucks in gift giving times! Really, I KNOW...I've heard, LOTS! lol. However, I've tried to make it as easy as possible, within SL's limits, to still give gifts. There are gift card vendors located through-out my in world shop. Gift cards are transferable.
However if you'd like specific items sent to an avatar, you can shop through SLX or On Rez. The majority of the older items on those sites are still transferable. Oh, and they come in pretty gift bags!
So those are the options for gifts. No, I will not budge on the permissions of my items. Those that still insist on asking - you will get the same spiel. :) For the reason's why Nyte'N'Day is no transfer please refer to this blog post.
Ok I'm done! Whew.
