[11:13] Moon Adamant: this meeting is recorded, please touch the pink box for agenda

[11:13] Gwyneth Llewelyn: :D
[11:13] Moon Adamant: ok hmmmm
[11:13] Moon Adamant: well, i'll pass to point 3 then :)
[11:14] Moon Adamant: this is going to be a record meeting
[11:14] Moon Adamant: 3. GMP workgroup report
[11:14] Moon Adamant: ok
[11:14] Moon Adamant: as chair of that wg
[11:14] Moon Adamant: i have to report that two decisions have already been made
[11:14] Moon Adamant: pardon, three
[11:14] Cindy Ecksol: three?
[11:14] Moon Adamant: the first is that a mountain range will be created to the WEST of NFS
[11:14] Cindy Ecksol only remembers one
[11:15] Moon Adamant: instead of south
[11:15] Moon Adamant: first meeting, Cindy
[11:15] Moon Adamant: the second decision
[11:15] Moon Adamant: was to abandon the Symo/Moon sketch for Timo's
[11:15] Moon Adamant: which complies with the mountain decision
[11:15] Moon Adamant: complies also with the philosophy of clusters
[11:16] Moon Adamant: and is more economic - 10 sims the less
[11:16] Moon Adamant: the third decision was to for the moment, do not contemplate the positioning of Al-Andaluz sims in the plan
[11:16] Moon Adamant: their area being occupied then by three 'generic sims'
[11:17] Moon Adamant: for reasons of eventual checkerboard strategic reservation of sim slots
[11:17] Moon Adamant: that's where we are so far
[11:17] Moon Adamant: for clarity
[11:17] Moon Adamant: i also re-published the current GMP
[11:17] Moon Adamant: because no one could find it in the bloody forums :)
[11:18] Moon Adamant: for everyone's convenience
[11:18] Moon Adamant: the most up to date sketches are set in classroom 2
[11:18] Sudane Erato: we might put them in the portal too
[11:18] Moon Adamant: they are not published in the forums yet, because i had to do a very sorry job over Timo's sketches
[11:19] Moon Adamant: and i want to redo that work properly in photoshop
[11:19] Moon Adamant: questions?
[11:20] Soro Dagostino: Bye all, a call to duty.
[11:20] Sonja Strom: ok Soro, bye
[11:20] Moon Adamant: bye Soro :)
[11:20] Moon Adamant: next meeting of the WG is this thursday, at 1 PM SLT
[11:22] Moon Adamant: ok
[11:22] Moon Adamant: are you awake?
[11:22] Moon Adamant: :)
[11:22] Rose Springvale: lol
[11:22] Rose Springvale: awake
[11:22] Sudane Erato: ")
[11:22] Sonja Strom: awake :-)
[11:22] Moon Adamant: extraordinary point
[11:23] Moon Adamant: as who has been in the RA meeting knows
[11:23] Moon Adamant: the Guild has been asked to provide the final design and design rules for teh CDS flag
[11:23] Moon Adamant: i want to convene a workgroup for this
[11:23] Moon Adamant: the task is very easy
[11:23] Moon Adamant: what we will do is:
[11:24] Moon Adamant: define the proportions of the flag
[11:24] Moon Adamant: define the design of the flag by geometric ways
[11:24] Moon Adamant: define the RGBs of the flag
[11:24] Moon Adamant: write the blazon
[11:24] Rose Springvale: what is a blazon?
[11:24] Sonja Strom: RGBs?
[11:24] Sonja Strom: lol
[11:24] Sudane Erato: :)
[11:25] Sonja Strom: Red, Green, Blues?
[11:25] Moon Adamant: the blazon is the written text that describes the flag or any heraldic device
[11:25] Gwyneth Llewelyn: A blazon is a textual description of a heraldic element
[11:25] Rose Springvale: oh lol
[11:25] Gwyneth Llewelyn: ah sorry, Moon
[11:25] Rose Springvale: okay
[11:25] Moon Adamant: in this case.... hmmm....
[11:25] Sonja Strom: ah, lol
[11:25] Rose Springvale: Minerva :)
[11:25] Rose Springvale: stars
[11:25] Sonja Strom is not so familiar with heraldic elements
[11:25] Gwyneth Llewelyn: AH,it has a very precise and unambiguously description
[11:25] Sonja Strom: and protocol
[11:25] Gwyneth Llewelyn *nods*
[11:26] Moon Adamant: fenced azure et argent, an owl sable et argent
[11:26] Rose Springvale: lol what's argent?
[11:26] Moon Adamant: 4 stars gold in the 1st quarter
[11:26] Moon Adamant: silver
[11:26] Gwyneth Llewelyn: Silver-y
[11:26] Rose Springvale: oh i always thought it was white! lol
[11:26] Moon Adamant: an owl guardant
[11:26] Moon Adamant: i have to go get my manuals for it :)
[11:26] Sudane Erato: a guard owl!
[11:27] Gwyneth Llewelyn: Wikipedia will help, Moon!
[11:27] Rose Springvale: nominates moon to be the workgroup
[11:27] Gwyneth Llewelyn: They even quote *the* authority quite well :)
[11:27] Gwyneth Llewelyn: hehe Rose
[11:27] Moon Adamant: oh, ihave that bible, the Rhys-davies
[11:27] Gwyneth Llewelyn: Yes, Wikipedia is based on Rhys-Davies
[11:27] Moon Adamant: anyway
[11:27] Moon Adamant: if we ant to be ambitious
[11:27] Moon Adamant: we can also define the pennant
[11:27] Moon Adamant: that is, the pennant flag
[11:27] Moon Adamant: and the jack :)
[11:28] Moon Adamant: that is, the nautical flag :)
[11:28] Sudane Erato: i agree with Rose :)
[11:28] Rose Springvale: and the wg can be as ambitious as it wants :)
[11:28] Sudane Erato: Moon will be the perfectly qualified WG :)
[11:28] Moon Adamant: lol
[11:28] Gwyneth Llewelyn: hehe
[11:28] Rose Springvale: so we have a motion and a second.. call the question lol
[11:28] Moon Adamant: nobody wants to learn a bit of heraldry? .)
[11:29] Rose Springvale knows she will learn when moon presents :)
[11:29] Moon Adamant: ok, voting now on a workgroup of one for the Flag design
[11:29] Rose Springvale: smile
[11:29] Moon Adamant: all agreeing, say aye
[11:29] Rose Springvale: aye
[11:29] Sudane Erato: aye
[11:29] Gwyneth Llewelyn: oh aye of course :D
[11:29] Cindy Ecksol: aye
[11:29] Moon Adamant: abstain
[11:30] Moon Adamant: but the ayes carry it
[11:30] Sonja Strom: aye
[11:30] Moon Adamant: ok guys
[11:30] Rose Springvale: i have something
[11:30] Moon Adamant: i keep looking at my friends' list
[11:30] Rose Springvale: before you close
[11:30] Moon Adamant: but i don't see Sol
[11:30] Moon Adamant: yes, Rose?
[11:30] Rose Springvale: new item
[11:30] Moon Adamant: ok?
[11:30] Rose Springvale: as you all know, i'm supposed to be doing more "development"
[11:31] Rose Springvale: one of the problems that i continually have to deal with when showing land to outsiders is that our covenants as posted on the sims are not consistent, clear and in some cases.. for example, nfs, they lead to a dead end and give no real info
[11:31] Rose Springvale: check the land tab here, you will see it hasn't pointed to the portal
[11:31] Rose Springvale: now
[11:31] Moon Adamant: very old covenant
[11:31] Rose Springvale: i have taken it on to review all four sims
[11:31] Moon Adamant: ok
[11:31] Rose Springvale: and have created 5 google documents
[11:31] Rose Springvale: one genereal, and then one for each sim
[11:32] Moon Adamant: ok
[11:32] Sonja Strom: wow, that's ambitious of you Rose :-)
[11:32] Rose Springvale: in the general document, i've tried to consolidate all the terms we have that are alike in all four, and in some cases, made suggestions where they SHOULD be alike.
[11:32] Rose Springvale: well, i have been through two covenant sessions with the guild.. and i konw how rushed we are
[11:32] Rose Springvale: we do the best we can
[11:32] Cindy Ecksol: :-)
[11:33] Sudane Erato: if we convert the CDS to a single estate, we'll only be able to have one covenant
[11:33] Moon Adamant: yes, we are always very rushed
[11:33] Rose Springvale: but i think some format will make it easier in the future
[11:33] Moon Adamant: indeed, i do agree
[11:33] Moon Adamant: LA was easier than AM because we already had AM
[11:33] Rose Springvale: anyway, i've sent this to jamie for him to look at, but i expect he will recommend the guild look at it. there are a few things that will require RA review
[11:33] Moon Adamant: surely
[11:34] Moon Adamant: and the changes must be voted at RA
[11:34] Rose Springvale: but before we present that, i think it best that we all take a calm look without the threat of a deadline
[11:34] Moon Adamant: ok
[11:34] Cindy Ecksol: gosh, what a concept!
[11:34] Sudane Erato: :)
[11:34] Rose Springvale: so i expect to send around invites here, and post on the board, OR
[11:34] Rose Springvale: i can just send to you moon, and you can agenda it for a future meeting?
[11:34] Moon Adamant: hmmm
[11:35] Moon Adamant: better do invites first
[11:35] Rose Springvale: felt like it was an over lap of admin/development issues so i just did it
[11:35] Moon Adamant: so that everyone can add suggestions
[11:35] Rose Springvale: and used all pretty colors lol
[11:35] Moon Adamant: otherwise we will be discussing word by word
[11:35] Sudane Erato: hehe
[11:35] Moon Adamant: what we CAN do
[11:35] Moon Adamant: is create a Covenant Revision WG
[11:35] Rose Springvale: well, i have NOT changed much wording.. because i felt it important to maintain the integrety
[11:35] Rose Springvale: well
[11:35] Rose Springvale: lets see what jamie wants to do
[11:35] Moon Adamant: ok
[11:36] Rose Springvale: he may well want it do come from Exec
[11:36] Moon Adamant: please tell him that that possibility is open
[11:36] Rose Springvale: of course!
[11:36] Moon Adamant: but that work is necessary indeed Rose
[11:36] Sudane Erato: hi :)
[11:36] Sonja Strom: Hi Delia
[11:36] Rose Springvale: but as most of it is merely administrative rewriting to clarify, there isnt much "discussion" except on things that are really legislative.. like eliminating maximum land ownership rules lol
[11:37] Delia Lake: hi everyone. sorry to be so late
[11:37] Rose Springvale: hi delia
[11:37] Moon Adamant: because not even the general Covenants have the same wording in all sims
[11:37] Rose Springvale: yes, and that's what i wanted to do
[11:37] Moon Adamant: Hi Delia, we're closing :(
[11:37] Rose Springvale: we tend to have the covenants, but we put them odd places
[11:37] Gwyneth Llewelyn: Poor Delia :(
[11:37] Rose Springvale: one other thing.. let me see if i can show you
[11:38] Sudane Erato: perhaps we can have one covenant... and then put sim specific clauses on the website?
[11:38] Moon Adamant: well, it's a bit difficult Sudane
[11:38] Sudane Erato: because i think we will need to move to one estate
[11:38] Rose Springvale: the problem wiht that is notice.. but sudane
[11:38] Moon Adamant: because of themes
[11:38] Rose Springvale: we CAN put the sim; specifics in tier boxes
[11:38] Sudane Erato: yes
[11:38] Rose Springvale: lol
[11:38] Moon Adamant: and for instance CN's and NFS' covenants are VERY complex
[11:38] Cindy Ecksol: ah, nice idea!
[11:38] Rose Springvale: i got a new toy
[11:38] Cindy Ecksol: this all fits together......
[11:39] Sudane Erato: :)
[11:39] Rose Springvale: not as complex as you think moon!
[11:39] Rose Springvale: i got this neat new toy that will scan any sim
[11:39] Rose Springvale: create a sculpt and texture map
[11:39] Moon Adamant: ooooh clever
[11:39] Sudane Erato: neat!
[11:39] Rose Springvale: this is colonia nova of course
[11:39] Rose Springvale: i've done all the sims
[11:39] Sudane Erato: i want it!
[11:39] Cindy Ecksol: wow!
[11:39] Rose Springvale: but have had to write to the creator to fix nfs.. its too high lol
[11:39] Delia Lake: very neat!!
[11:39] Moon Adamant: my, the terrain under the city is really a mess :)
[11:40] Cindy Ecksol: lol!
[11:40] Gwyneth Llewelyn: hehe
[11:40] Rose Springvale: i think it's a parameter in the script, but will work on that
[11:40] Gwyneth Llewelyn: mmmh nice, Rose!
[11:40] Rose Springvale: but it might be fun when we do gmp positioning
[11:40] Cindy Ecksol: yes, very cool!!
[11:40] Gwyneth Llewelyn *nods*
[11:40] Rose Springvale: because we can set them foe anyone to move
[11:40] Rose Springvale: and play like a puzzle :)
[11:40] Moon Adamant: ys, it will surely help us a lot
[11:40] Sudane Erato: very neat :)
[11:41] Moon Adamant: in fact, if you could leave the sims in classroom 2, it would be very much appreciated
[11:41] Gwyneth Llewelyn: yes :)
[11:41] Sudane Erato: where can we get the tool, Rose?
[11:41] Rose Springvale: if i can free up a sim to load raws on... then we can even try differnt proposed sims.. i was thinking of the monastery one
[11:41] Gwyneth Llewelyn *nods* @ Rose
[11:41] Rose Springvale: i'll send you the link su. its only 1500 L
[11:41] Gwyneth Llewelyn: or do it on OpenSim hehe
[11:41] Sudane Erato: great! :)
[11:41] Rose Springvale: not sure the tool will work on opensim, but it's 1500 L lol
[11:41] Rose Springvale: and honestly
[11:41] Moon Adamant: please send me the link as well, Rose
[11:41] Delia Lake: to me too please, rose
[11:42] Gwyneth Llewelyn: Sure it will
[11:42] Rose Springvale: i did all thees sims, and AA in less than an hour
[11:42] Gwyneth Llewelyn: haha
[11:42] Rose Springvale: again. nfs is wrong.. sheared
[11:42] Gwyneth Llewelyn: :-(
[11:42] Moon Adamant: NFS is unbaked
[11:42] Rose Springvale: but its a fun tool, and i may just not be using it right
[11:42] Moon Adamant: almost for sure
[11:42] Gwyneth Llewelyn: well CN looks awesome
[11:42] Rose Springvale: there is an adjust ment on the website, hold on let me get it for you
[11:43] Rose Springvale: http://nowherevirtual.com/landsculptor/help.html
[11:43] Gwyneth Llewelyn: thank you Rose :)
[11:44] Moon Adamant: this is very good
[11:44] Moon Adamant: i had to quit on backhoe after it burned a MB
[11:44] Rose Springvale: okay, i'll drop copies of the models i have at classroom two.. it actually uses the LL lab texture...
[11:44] Rose Springvale: map i mean
[11:44] Moon Adamant: yes, but the map is much better these days too
