AngelRED Couture Customers !!!PLEASE READ!!!

It’s time again for my twice a year reminders!!!
AngelRED Couture Customers PLEASE READ!!!
—————————————————–
1. Please do not resell my full perm meshes without first making yourself show as the creator. You can do this by either purchasing a full version pack and uploading the DAE files yourself or you can add a prim to the mesh as I show here –> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfAC1yuxloM
This step is VERY important because it keeps YOUR customers from contacting ME about YOUR products. 🙂

2. Any AngelRED Couture products that are sold by anyone other than my official business avatars are SCAMMERS! Official AngelRED Couture Products are ONLY sold by: Lexi Zelin, Lexi Seda, JCNova Resident, AngelREDCouture Resident, and DeniedLove Resident.
• AngelRED Couture [FULL PERMISSION]
Seller: Lexi Zelin

• AngelRED Couture [BOUTIQUE]
Seller: Lexi Seda
https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/125358
• AngelRED Couture [SIMPLECANDY]
Seller: JCNova Resident
https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/116257

3. DO NOT SEND ME NOTECARDS OR VAGUE IMS!! I take care of most customer service needs through my email. This saves time for me and you. When you send me a notecard with an issue you will have a wait time of up to 5 days for an answer. If you send me a detailed offline IM your issues will be solved within 1-2 days and usually less then 24 hours. I will not respond to vague IMs “Hi” “Hello” “How are you” “I have a question” non of these IMs will be answered.

4. DO NOT expect a faster response from me on Facebook. Yes, I am on facebook usually a few times every day but I do NOT check my private messages regularly. Feel free to use facebook as a way to get help but when I go through messages to do customer service I also then go through my facebook so facebook messages and offline IMs will have the same wait time.

5. I do NOT take custom orders from people I do not know. So, don’t ask.

6. If you have a request please make a notecard with your request in the notifications box which can be found in the lobby of the main angelred full perm store. Requests are just that, a “request” it is not a custom order and there is no guarantee that it will be created but I do look over requests often so drop them in there for me! 🙂

7. I no longer accept blogger applications so don’t ask.

8. No, I do not give classes and I do not give private tutorials. I may do some tutorials from time to time and they will be publicly posted on the AngelRED Couture Youtube.

And that’s that :v Thank you to those customers who actually read and understand these twice a year rants. ❤ much love ❤

Blueberry’s Official Statement on the Meli Imako Terms of Service Issue

Hi everyone!

My name is Blueberry and I am the official leader of the Blueberry Team and recently what has been going on in the merchant resources business is really upsetting me.
First of all, no matter if you are making your own textures, own mesh or not YOU are helping contributing the market to grow, you are helping SL advertisement. And we in team Blueberry and AngelRed Couture, respect that.
Reselling has been a type of business since ages and when someone opens a store you will never see whole sellers give away blank t-shirts and tell you to paint them yourself! So just because you don’t paint your own textures does not mean you can not have a business in Second Life. Marketing skills is still a very important set of skills! And YOU are the reason why me and Lexi are able to make a living off of this game! So please, do not let anyone tell you, you do not deserve to have a business in Second Life just because you are not making your own textures or mesh.

I am stepping into this today, because I can not stand seeing Lexi Zelin getting attacked when she deserves to be thanked instead. She is protecting YOUR RIGHTS when she stands up to something unfair.
Also, Lexi Zelin has no personal vendetta against Meli Imako. But just like me, she believes that the dramatic TOS change has been extremely unfair and has affected our friends.

Meli Imako,
When mesh first came out, you brought a bunch of models into world allowing a lot of new businesses to be born and we respect that. However right now you are asking everyone, who IN THE PAST used your textures to take the products off of their store and re-texture them. This is so very unfair.
So please, you are a respected creator in our community, we are asking you to come up with a TOS that protects the customer rights as much as they protect YOURS. If anything, as full perm content creators and store owners we should all help each other out and be a close knit family. We need to co-exist and respect each other to bring SL economy higher and higher together.

I realize and respect the fact that, the products belong to you and you have the right to change your TOS. But that doesn’t mean you have to play God. If you do not want your textures to be used please do not include them in your packs and do not create confusion.

Thank you very much for reading and your consideration..

Special side note:
I have read some comments about Lexi creating drama on purpose. Drama has NEVER helped a store in the past. She very well knew that when she decided to stand up for her customers and her friends who have felt wronged. So please, when you decide to talk about someone in such a harsh way, get your facts together.

Also, I apologize if my broken English offended anybody, it’s not my native language. Thank you for your time!
Blueberry

Protest Against Meli Imako’s Terms Of Service Agreement 2013

Image

Meli Imako is a highly popular and considerably respected full permission seller within the game SecondLife. She has been providing SL residents and creators with wonderful full permission packs for years now. For the last few months I have received many messages from customers of both Meli Imako and myself asking for help understanding her terms of service agreement. I am always happy to help because these people are not only her customers but also mine and I like to help as much as I can no matter what the issue.

Recently the issue has been #6 of Meli Imako’s terms of service which states: “My items can not be sold with my textures under any condition. Minor tweaks to bend around this rule are not accepted (such as changing the color: it shouldn’t resemble the original). UV Maps, shadow maps and sculpt maps are also considered as my textures.”

This is an extremely misleading statement and upon what my customers have said to me, Meli Imako has been sure to make a point to ask people who have used her textures on the meshes they sell to be removed from their stores as it goes against her tos.

I wrote Meli Imako about this issue, this is not right AT ALL. She advertises her mesh clothing packs as having the full perm textures as a part of the pack. Therefore those whom purchase these packs should be able to use them however they want once purchased. IF Meli Imako does not want people using her “full perm” textures that are apart of her “full perm kits” then she should NOT include them and she should NOT advertise them as being a part of the “full perm” pack. By doing such she is not only false advertising her items but she is lieing to each and every customer who shops at her store. This is unacceptable and because I got no reply from her after bringing this issue up to her I have decided to go public with this in the hopes that she will change this misleading part of her terms and stop false advertising to her and MY customers.

Below I have posted images of her Terms of Service along with my opinions on them aswell as pictures and a video of our protest held tonight for an hour at her main store. Many showed up to support the fact that they feel that they have been lied and cheated by Meli Imako and DEMAND changes.
