Wake Up Avatar Reality

You mean someone actually reads this blog?!? I stumbled on it today, and do not plan to come back. These disjointed, rambling, diatribes come across as the ravings of a lunatic with severe ADD. Reminds me of yapping mutts. No one pays them any attention as they bark away endlessly at something that no one else can see… Anyone can rant, vent, be provocative. That always strikes me as a low-level, base individual. What gets my respect is someone who, when seeing a problem, gets off their ass and does something to improve it. If you want to affect positive change, get out there and organize an event, invite friends, build a world, form a group, plan a team, encourage the devs and members, publicize an activity, post something positive about Blue Mars and the incredibly creative people who are building new worlds there. Otherwise piss off. *Anyone* and their dog can destroy, complain, SCREAM IN LARGE FONTS, rend and tear to attract attention. The truly remarkable person is one who, when seeing a need for improvement, takes the initiative to get busy and do something constructive about it….

I Replied :

OOO LOOK Mummy Man Write In B I G LETTERS!!! OOOO. Wish I could read the small letters! O when likle boy, using ARIN and AT &T services whose ip address is 75.59.239.68 , gets Big Me Gonna Blog too! Of course you would have read how I have authored nearly 40 videos about blue mars, run three specific blogs about Blue Mars, have got Blue Mars mentioned on the BBC several times AND mentioned in The Huffington Post DIGG StumbleUpun apart from the hundreds of tweets … Oh dear. When likle boy learn how to read likle words you come back and tell the big boys. Then we let you hold the ball, no kicking it! ok? But you can hold it for a year or so…hey http://BeKool.net ok?

YOU ARE NOT DOING YOUR JOB!

It is coming up to the first year of me writing this blog.  You are failing us all.

  1. You have so many friends on Facebook, you and the event manager and others.

WHY DOES NO ONE ATTEND YOUR EVENTS LISTED IN FACEBOOK? Why does nobody say they will attend?Not even a Maybe. This is an unmitigated

F A I L U R E!!!

Where is your Facebook Side Bar Advertisement. DO YOU THINK ADVERTISING IS WRONG? EVIL? STUPID? A WASTE OF MONEY? DO YOU WANT ME TO DO IT? YOU CANNOT AFFORD A FEW BUCKS TO ADVERTISE ON THE SOCIAL REVOLUTION SITE WITH 500 MILLION USERS? DO YOU WANT ME TO LEND YOU $100? I CAN HAVE A WHIP ROUND DOWN THE PUB…..

  1. Why is the volunteerv program a failure?

I became a volunteer in November 2009. WHY ARE THERE NO VOLUNTEERS? IT IS WORSE NOW THAN A YEAR AGO! Why not require devs to spend an hour a day each in Welcome helping people. WHY NOT RECRUIT STUDENTS? THERE ARE MILLIONS OF STUDENTS! GIVE THEM 1000 BLU$ Give them school vouchers, OMG They Are STUDENTS GIVE THEM FREE BEER!!!

  1. Why are ALL the Events failures?

Why can you not stage an event? Trivia has maybe 1 new person a week every one else is a dev or is Pierre or Intox. And they are French and They cheat and I love them , well Intox (sshh dont tell Pierre)

NOBODY ATTENDS POOL PARTIES OR OTHER PARTIES! N O B O D Y !!!! IN THE PAST FEW MONTHS I HAVE MET MAYBE 5 New PEOPLE! EVERYONE ELSE ARE OLD FRIENDS GOING OUT OF LOYALTY.

  1. Why cant we keep people?

Our Retention rate is ATROCIOUS! People come once, a few times, THEN WE DO NOT SEE THEM AGAIN!!!!!

WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST AMAZING THING ABOUT BLUE MARS IN THE PAST YEAR?????

ARCADIA

Why? Because we had a project, because it was intelligent, because it was a group activity and THEY GAVE US CLOTHES THEY GAVE US BLU$. IT LASTED MONTHS!!!

WAKE UP AVATAR REALITY! I offered my services a year ago, you would not give me a budget. Instead you hired someone from a virtual world that died. You have a blogger from Second Life. YOU THINK THIS WORKS?

IT DOES NOT WORK! WAKE UP AVATAR REALITY!

Social Networking has overtaken Pornography as the number one activity on the net. Passivity on the internet has gone. Interactivity is the norm. Blue Mars is a virtual world that has made the transition from a game to a social networking world. Last night we held an award ceremony demonstrating our scientific skills as Citizen Scientists, sponsored by edge @ TERC.edu . Was it Virtual or Real? The lines between the two have become blurred. Its OnlyBlueMars (dot) com.

So, if I’m following this post right, you’re wanting Avatar Reality to give you money for writing this blog?

I am sorry, but all of your posts here do not make much sense. They go from one thing to the next, without leading up to the next point and are completely nonsensical. It’s like I’m reading a post written by a 15yr old with the most severe A.D.H.D. ever recorded.

The post you have made here and on the BMO forums, illustrates this point perfectly, since it’s probably one of the worst ones you have here on this blog. I had to read it several times, before I was even able to get this little bit of information out of it.

But, the best part of it all is that you want Avatar Reality to actually give you money for this. Honestly, if I was them, not only would I not give you money for this, I would actually file a suit against you for trying to impersonate the BMO development team.

That part under “Us” on the side, implies that you are actually one of the developers of Blue Mars, since you use the words that imply ownership, such as “us” and “our”. Which, given the nature of these posts and the childish, unformatted, and unfocused writing, might actually do damage to BMO’s image.

The only other thing I got out of this post, is that you are mad that Avatar Reality is not advertising a virtual world, that is not in a playable state. This also, would do damage to them. Once people come into BMO in it’s current state, they will not come back and it will forever be stuck in their heads at how horribly unfinished the client was. To launch a full advertising campaign in this state, would surely be like slitting their own wrists.

Thank you Matt! Your observations are acute and accurate! Of course I do not want paying for this blog! My aim was to be provocative. On the Forums NO ONE COMMENTS! On the Blue Mars Blog NO ONE COMMENTS! A forum is an area for discussion, for airing views. This post represents a year of frustration. Please read my main blog http://onlybluemars.com , where I believe you will find a more erudite (?) blog. My other Blue Mars Blog has a slightly different tone http://bluemars.dudestarship.com . I have made upwards of 30 videos of Blue Mars. Both using Blip.tv , my professional video siteand Youtube. I am a developer btw. I was a volunteer but resigned as I was not prepared to bullshit newbies, I tell the truth rather than the “perty line”, I call myseldf a guide. Blue Mars is free. I spent over $20 on my suit for the Arcadia event. I spend my own money unbegrudgingly hosting and designing. Time and again I have offered my services to Blue Mars, their web design is terrible, I know 14 years olds who can do better. Look at QuestAhoy.com . BMOs web image could not be damaged, if i visited their web sites I would laugh. I will comment too on wether or not Blue Mars is “ready”. Firstly it is not a game, it is a Social Networking Experience. Last night, myself and two friends “played” for three hours collecting orbs in New Venice, (Not Venezia, whose opening blurb is totally wrong, it desceibes New Venice and not venezia, something I complained about two months ago). Chat broke, we got stuck, we re logged but we were there for three hours. This is not an isolated experience for me. It happens every day. I spend around 6 to 8 hours with my Avatar in blue mars in a small window where i can monitor arrivals but still work. Most of the time it is empty. When people arrive the most frequently asked question is “Where is everybody?” So. Thank you for your comment. Facebook is a failure for BM. FYI : I worked as a Probation Officer in London for ten years. It left me somewhat damaged. I am officially disabled (manic-depressive, apparently uncureably so) hence the um “rant”. I get a bit excited. Sorry. It doesnt happen that often now, every couple of months or so. I live on disability allowance which doesnt go too far. I think avatar reality are wasting money. If they gave me even a small amount, I could use my Microsoft ( I am a partner and part of MS Technet) and LinkedIn connections to put them on a more professional footing. I’ve been on the web since 1995, so iI sorta know it a bit. Thanks again Matt. Philip Finlay-Bryan B.Sc. (Hons) MA CQSW dip TEFL MCAS

Oh As for Avatar Reality slitting its own wrists, it doesn’t need my help. A couple of months back there was a new welcome area. Great and there is a video! I didn’t watch it immediately. Then one day I did. I WAS HORRIFIED!!!

  • “There are only 4 areas to visit and one them is under of construction” WHAT? THERE ARE 12!!!!!
  • “Blue Mars is in closed Beta” WHAT? OMG this video is a year old!!!
  • “Avatars are creepy” WHAT?????
  • “Fembots pose for you” WHAT? So its a world for men who have female robots who entertain them?
  • “My Avatar Looks positively unhinged at times” WHAT???
  • “The interface is far too sparse for me” WHAT???
  • “There is not much happening at the moment but you can dance for the fembots” Oh My God!!

This was the video avatar reality put up in the welcome area. I screamed at them. It was there for nearly two months, “welcoming” new people

Nah, they dont need my help, they are doing fine. I was at a pool party last week. Its great fun me and the regulars have a laugh. Arzach turned up as a fly! Sage plays good music. Its fun. Then I noticed a group dancing on the dance floor. I went over to invite them to the pool party. I got no response to requests, pokes chats, nothing. I got a bit annoyed and thought they were second lifers ignoring me, snubbing me, the bastards. Yet they were well dressed. I tried again and again. Nothing. I was really pissed at them. Next day they were still there. OMG, they are bots! I felt so stupid! No one told me, hahahahahaha.

Guess where new people go when they first arrive? Guess how they feel when they get ignored. Where are the volunteers to put them right. Ha! Im the mad one?
