Town Meeting April 9, 2020

Cosmic Andy: Please can everyone ghost and i’ll start the meeting
Cosmic Andy: Thanks everyone!
Cosmic Andy: 9 topics to go over. I’ll try and keep it quick.
Cosmic Andy: Please wait until all 9 topics are over and then you can come down max 20 can get down to ask questions and i will answer them quickly.
Cosmic Andy: Will try to finish by 4:30 including questions but i will be around after that for more questions.

Cosmic Andy: 1) Old Body Tickets
Cosmic Andy: We will be restoring the body changes so members can do it without the need of staff.
Cosmic Andy: After this month the tickets can’t be sold to another avatar (staff can’t do name changes).
Cosmic Andy: We have new bodies in the pipeline and I will work with artists to get more in the future.

Cosmic Andy: 2) CC Token Shop
Cosmic Andy: This will extend this month and next month allowing members to use them.

Cosmic Andy: 3) Turfs
Cosmic Andy: We still have just over 4000 turfs behind on the rent from 2018 and not been logged into.
Cosmic Andy: To help improve the database (speed of the world and stability) we need to clear as many turfs as possible that are no longer wanted. We have already removed 6000+ which has seen the restart time from by 3 minutes.
Cosmic Andy: If you need a turf list please contact us via a ticket. If you have turfs you don’t want please break the lease.
Cosmic Andy: On the VZones website you’ll see a work in progress list of turfs we offer at the correct location and price.
Cosmic Andy: Once we have all turfs upto date, rents paid and any unwanted turfs removed we will then change the rent period back so you can rent for longer and we will release new turfs so the managers have 7 on each.
Cosmic Andy: Again very important if you have a turf you don’t want please break the lease. It makes a huge difference. If you need help with turfs/rents please make a ticket.

Cosmic Andy: 4) VIP Shop Items
Cosmic Andy: To confirm that all past months items are now available and will stay available. In the coming months this shop will also see a lot more items in bulk rather than a scheduled amount each month.

Cosmic Andy: 5) Pet Store
Cosmic Andy: Pets are still in progress and looking like another 2+ months.
Cosmic Andy: VIP accounts will get a free pet alt
Cosmic Andy: standard accounts can purchase a pet alt on a monthly basis.

Cosmic Andy: 6) AW Public Homes
Cosmic Andy: Change on this that custom work can only be done on the outside of the house and requested via a form on the vzones website.
Cosmic Andy: If you need any critical inside changes/work doing please contact us this week to discuss it.

Cosmic Andy: 7) CUST Items
Cosmic Andy: These are no longer being offered. If you have a CUST item you would like changed please request it within the next 7 days.

Cosmic Andy: 8) Staff Contact / Job Roles
Cosmic Andy: This is the last topic and the most complex/exciting.
Cosmic Andy: We need to streamline the member contact service so you know exactly how to contact us and get what you need and new players (which we will see when advertising starts) know the process and find it easy without past knowledge.
Cosmic Andy: So we will be doing this in a number of ways.
Cosmic Andy: In the coming months we will offer some roles/jobs which members can apply for.
Cosmic Andy: This would be an example……..
Cosmic Andy: Slot changes….
Cosmic Andy: Rather than contacting a staff member via ESP, Social Media etc you would contact an avatar who does all slot changes. Selected members would share the account and work on schedule to do it.
Cosmic Andy: This avatar would be the only person allowed to do it and it would be clear from a schedule when the avatar was available to do that job.
Cosmic Andy: Another example…..
Cosmic Andy: Handy Man
Cosmic Andy: The Handy Man would be the person you contact if you needed some work doing to the front of your public home.
Cosmic Andy: It will be clear via the website what the handy man can and can’t do and when he is available in world on duty/schedule to do work for you.
Cosmic Andy: We would create more roles/jobs as the months go on and as make it a fun thing for members to help out.

Cosmic Andy: and now the last point regarding getting help you need…..
Cosmic Andy: Acolytes will return and will be approved helpers such as Coal who will be available on schedule via page method to help with anything that can’t be done via roleplayer/job avatar.
Cosmic Andy: Oracles will be my office based staff only. They will help with complex IW issues.
Cosmic Andy: Direct support to a staff member who will stop so you won’t be able to or need to message a single person directly via ESP, chat, social media or in the post. You’ll either go to a roleplayer/job avatar or you’ll page an aco.
Cosmic Andy: If it’s not IW issue then you can continue to submit a ticket as normal.
Cosmic Andy: This covers it all now so feel free to come down, ask a question and then ghost. Comments & ideas you can also come down and say but please ghost after to allow me to answer. If you have multiple questions please post one, then ghost and wait.

Below is the Q&A session

shanny: change ya colors
shanny: plz
shanny: green is icky
The Incredible Cpt.Dialtone: green is awesome
Catolyte M. Melinda: how about an inscentive to get rid of turfs rather than ‘punishing’ by limiting rent?
L’AD: will there be a list of helpers somewhere??
Spookie: what happened to topic 9?
Laesea: i have a question regarding body tickets. I have a green one a.fairy.warrior.img and was told maye issues with it could you please let me know if there will be or not
Tigress: 1 can you post who is staff and are you selling vzones??/
Cosmic Andy: It’s not punishing anyone. It’s getting all turfs into order. We have turfs going back to 2014 not paid for. It will change back once we have everything upto date.
Celeste: oops
Celeste: What about turfs that are still missing?
Jung£edream: Regarding body tickets – will those we have now, still continue to be usable, such as Model/Heidi/Bruce etc? ANd if tickets are cleared NOW because we already planned to sell them – can we continue to offer them for sale til they sell? IE the person
Cosmic Andy: I’m not selling VZones no.
Honor: on body changes.. what about the model and josephine bodies?
Madame Titzenass: can we have an election for acos make em work to get into office
Cosmic Andy: Cleared tickets can be sold yes.
Jung£edream: who purchases the already-cleared ticket on May 1 can still use it?
Petallypoo: where would my alt go to change her body with a tix?
Cosmic Andy: The avatar who owns it can change as many times as needed via the machines which will open.
CrystallBall: will we be able to use tickets for bodies that arent currently in the body changers?
Jung£edream: ok ty
Honor: those bodies I mentioned not available in vip
Petallypoo: thats not in machine
Cosmic Andy: You’ll have a new area to do the body changes yes.
Floaty McFloatface: Thanks for doing this, Andy.
Petallypoo: ok
Floaty McFloatface: I actually have a number of CUST items – 7 days is not really a lot of time to dig them all out but, more importantly, won’t this be a bit overwhelming for staff to do in just 7 days?
Honor: does that mean anyone can have them ..how would machine know who has them?
CrystallBall: will we still be able to change into bodies we have tickets for that arent in the body changers now?
Betamax: What is a CUST item?
Cosmic Andy: The ticket will be linked to the owner so once the final changes/sold tickets are done only that avatar will have access to change the body.
Honor: not a lot of those bodies inworld since artists didn’t give ok on them for new ones
Petallypoo: As I mentioned before.. VIP members pay a lil more than twice a Reg, Acct.. Why cant 2 avvies earn Tokens? Its also an incentive for ppl
Cosmic Andy: If more time is needed on custom items we can review in a week.
Jung£edream: One last question – I would love to go VIP but cannot afford amonthly fee. However I can afford to spend my income tax on a yearly account. I have been told this is/is not available. What’s the status on yearly VIP?
Honor: ok gotcha
Spookie: how do we get out of Phoenix?
Honor: how do you choose acolytes or will that be a form too?
Cosmic Andy: ALTs won’t be able to earn tokens. Sorry.
Catolyte M. Melinda: why not? lol
Pammie Sue: can you give me a example of custom items, does include changing the names of items ?
Catolyte M. Melinda: worked for 20 years
Dia: Does No CUST mean that there will not be any more new ones (Like the Marvin this past month) moving forward?
Cosmic Andy: Yearly VIP is still available on the site. If you have an issue with it please make a ticket.
Dia: ty
CrystallBall: will we still be able to use body tickets for bodies that arent currently in the body changers? like Jo and Heidi old SK bodies etc?
Petallypoo: but those of us who started from the beginning still get the 2 free months Correct?
Honor: How will you choose acolytes?
Jung£edream: TY Andy – I’ll be going VIP soon
Cosmic Andy: Aco applications will be a good long time off. First we will sort it with our current staff then release the job roles that people can apply for.
Honor: ok ty
Madame Titzenass: let us vote
Floaty McFloatface: You had mentioned on the forums back in late January some new features were being worked on for shop owners – any updates on this? I also understand that shop turf rent will no longer be paid for by staff, like it was a while back – will t
Cosmic Andy: You will be able to apply for a job role via the site when they are ready.

Cosmic Andy: Seducity no plans yet sorry.
Catolyte M. Melinda: yeeaahh adam and eve bodies
CrystallBall: so we can still use old body tickets you dont own rights to?
Betamax: Could you define a ‘CUST’ item?
CandyCane: Regarding the AW public home customization. I have been waiting to have some work done inside mine. So i’ll need to submit a ticket this week?
Cosmic Andy: Yes you’ll be able to change them via vendo rather than waiting for staff.
Coal: CUST items were like the Marvin that was in the Prize Market last month (but it is now removed) – it meant you could pick your own paint for that item
CrystallBall: Lottery question…he got 2K of my money and never had a lottery draw..ive left several esps and told i would be gotten in ouch with

Jung£edream: ALso regarding AW homes – I inherited one. I don’t want a kitchen or bathroom. Can I have them taken out this week, anddo I need to submit a ticket

Cosmic Andy: Please submit a ticket and we will do that change for you this week yep.
Jung£edream: Ok ty
CrystallBall: what about skin on AW items?
CrystallBall: same thing
