Re: Monastary

That's great, Ranma! Can you please clarify for me what the 'Church of Peter' is? Is it Anglican or is it Catholic? When I google it, I get both results. It is the Catholic church since my understanding is it is the church of this monastery. Though Anglican/Episcopal would work as well. Would like ...

Re: Monastary

I'd be willing to make a cross of some sort, based on an anglican/episcopal[1] design. This is what I've found after a quick google https://holycrosscarlsbad.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/cross-side.png This is my favorite design, altho it's Presbyterian: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/comm...

Re: Monastary

I'm uncomfortable with aligning our structures with any specific denomination. I'm down with a generic "Christian" theme; but not with a specific Christian sect such as Catholicism, Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox (tho they have some awesome churches) or Protestantism. Simply put, by choosing one y...

Re: PROPOSAL: Buy a year, get some months FREE

Also not in favour of discounts for extended tier payments ... I already pay the max time I can for my parcel and it's never crossed my mind that it should earn me a discount .... as others said CDS is not expensive to start with, so leave it as it is gets my vote :) Thank you, Shep. I'm definitely...

Re: Continuation of discussion from RA Gov Announcements

Every time I read about "the great firewall" of china on Hacker News etc, someone always mentions VPNs and that they're a thing over there. So it is possible to utilize google etc. My understanding of this is that if you can access Second Life at all, you are using a VPN to do so, as SL is also blo...

Re: Continuation of discussion from RA Gov Announcements

I think it would be very good to change the laws to reflect current practices.

Every time I read about "the great firewall" of china on Hacker News etc, someone always mentions VPNs and that they're a thing over there. So it is possible to utilize google etc.

That is beside the point, though.

Re: Continuation of discussion from RA Gov Announcements

Email's a lost cause, but would it be possible to somehow archive the google sheet info on our forum or portal somehow? That way the discussions aren't totally gone?

Re: Continuation of discussion from RA Gov Announcements

I may be a minority of one on this, which is fine, but it is something I feel very strongly about. Whether or not CDS has done it in the past, it has been a rarity and up for discussion every time (if by no one else, it has always been by me). If CDS chooses instead to mainline the use of a 3rd par...

Re: PROPOSAL: Buy a year, get some months FREE

I'll be happy to try and explain all this better. But I hope maybe you get my basic position on this. Our tier should be set, and everyone should pay the same, no matter how many months ahead they want to pay. This appears to be the consensus from pretty much everyone I've heard from; so that's wha...

PROPOSAL: Buy a year, get some months FREE

Hiya A lot of you have met Lyubov in Neufriestat -she's developing and running a little yoga studio in Neufreistadt, on Ulrikastrasse. (if you haven't been, you should see it -she's friendly and what she's done with the space is awesome) She has bought one large parcel in NFS and last night her and ...

Re: Continuation of discussion from RA Gov Announcements

We are an experiment in a living democracy, part of that involves integrating and testing new technologies and methods . As long as the tools are freely accessible, I personally don't have a problem either. If it required, for example, the installation of Microsoft Office (which requires windows, an...

Re: CDS Artisan Guild appointments to Land Use Commission

Hmmm, I see that Ranma had accepted Han's appointment, but there was a bit of overlap and a confliction. I am happy to nominated Kyoko for one of the citizen appointments of the RA. There's crossed wires -I had thought that Ranma was waiting for an explanation of what being on the LUC would entail ...
