Resident Choice Awards- Nika’s Picks

For the first time, Linden Labs has opened up voting on the very first Resident Choice Awards. They gave us 35 categories, and we get to fill in our favorites. Of course, they wanted us to include all the Slurls as well. This was a LOT of work, and I wonder how many people actually got through the whole thing. Some of the categories seemed to be unneccesary repeats, to me. (Favorite place to take a first date/favorite place to share a first kiss. Best place to be emo/best place to be goth.) And there were some categories missing completely. But all in all, it was a good first attempt. I can’t wait to see the results, in a couple of weeks. Anyway, I figured if I was going to go to all the work of gathering Slurls, I may as well share my personal picks here. Hope you enjoy!

  1. there are some good ones there. i have to say though, #6 was itazura’s idea, not mine. to be honest, i’m the slow-ass editor who’s holding things up instead of keeping them moving along. plus i have schedule problems sometimes getting in to record.

    so i’d say for that one, itazura = win, radar = lose.

  2. i meant number 8, not 6. neither itazura NOR i are responsible for diva, fer cryin out loud.

  3. Great post Nika. Your photos are stunning.

  5. I’d rather not be involved in anything involving awards and voting and all that stuff.

    Avoided it with blogging.
    Avoided it with podcasting.
    Avoiding it with SL.

    The notecards and emails and notices I’ve gotten asking for me to vote for this or that is just an annoyance that brings down my enjoyment of that particular thing or event or place. Campaigning turns people into the worst of themselves.

    So I’d rather not do that to others and make them feel obligated to jump through hoops on some site, dig up SLURLs, blah blah blah.

    Y’all’s time is better spent ENJOYING, eh. And BUILDING and MAKING even BETTER stuff.


  6. […] learned of Petron after coming across this weblog entry in a reader:  Nika Dreamscape’s list of best places.  This monochromatic build dazzles with a wide range of surprises.  So much so, I took a […]
