Getting Old…

I wonder if I’m the only one who finds the whole FIC thing to be a real pain in the neck? Or does everyone else think it, but doesn’t express it (or in such ways that it just adds to it without even being funny)?

There isn’t one day on the forums when I don’t see some thread or at least answer to a thread about that, and honestly, every single one of it is just as empty and inane as the previously posted one. I mean, seriously, it was somewhat remotely fun in the beginning and I admit that I snickered too, but now it has gotten way too old.

Or perhaps I just lack a sense of humor. If this is the case, then so be it.

  1. I find it redundant, negative, and unhelpful. It can be likened to a moldy orange (you know how they get all dusty and gray when they rot) that tastes awful and acidic, yet someone masochistic keeps subjecting themselves to it and chewing on, even at the risk of contracting some disease and rotting away like the orange. :p

    There’s already enough darkness in the world — let’s shine some more light. For me, it’s a whole “Been there, done that x 1,000, BLAH!” So many better things that I’m personally interested and fascinated in. So I agree with you, Tana. I can’t relate…… besides, I’m SLuminati. 😉

  2. I dont understand it either to be honest. I did notice that on april fools day.. in all of our profiles there was an FIC thing instead of resident.

    I personally think the FIC is a “click” (sp) and well kinda makes new sl residents who dont now what it is feel left out. Nothing personal against the memembers.. just my thought 😀

  3. To tell the truth, I still havn’t exactly figured out what the Feted Inner Core IS (and who’s in it). FIC posts might as wall refer to it as “ghmyprzdycphekek” or “bltxpempdthefsk”…


  4. Mmm, Olympia, perhaps that’s why it’s just not funny anymore. Who cares what it exactly means anyway… it’s like a handful of people only are making jokes about it thinking themselves funny, but the rest of SL doesn’t understand or doesn’t even care, so in the end, it falls flat. Well, at least for me, it does.

  5. ?? what is too old?

    i think being a designer would be kinda cool.. especially a graphic designer…hmm it would be fun too. but i missed the whole topic on what u said.. whoever u are. i just thought ur writing was interesting. that’s all.

  6. I think it’s important to consider how it appears from outside.

    To RLers it looks exclusivist, territorial and as a result obviously not too inviting.

    I say this based both on my feelings as a relatively new user, and on what I hear from “outsiders” looking in with curiosity.

    All other effects intended or otherwhise aside, those perceptions are detrimental to public acceptance – a necessary component in the evolution of the metaverse.
