Group Chat Guidelines

Welcome to ! MAAM! (! Mesh Avatar Appearance Maniacs !)
Updated January 2nd, 2018

Please keep in mind we are not a support group for all mesh bodies and heads. We (that includes you as a member/designer) help each other out as best as we can …or refer you to either a product support group or the creator of the product. Make sure to keep an eye on the special deals, sales, gifts the wonderful by MAAM approved designers will share in their once a day notices. Don’t miss out! (I want to make clear MAAM is NOT a freebie nor a spam group – we’re just lucky we have some generous designers who like to offer us gifts once in a while!).

Please note! IF you have an issue with any item picked up as a gift or that you purchased from an approved ! MAAM ! designer … contact the designer via notecard if they aren’t online.  NOT the ! MAAM ! owner or staff or in group chat.  We cannot help with product issues. Thank you!

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a group where guidelines weren’t needed, however, seeing as we are a purpose driven group, they are indeed necessary. At the same time we want to protect all our members from scams and spam as best we can. They are not up for discussion and failure to read is not an excuse for ignorance nor does it give anyone the right to be a jerk. We are adults, lets act like it.

ALLOWED in group chat:

You can talk about anything for female and male mesh bodies/appearance:
Appliers, Fitted mesh, Mesh Bodies, Heads, Heels, Jewelry, Hair, Eyes, Skin, Makeup, Tattoos, Shapes.

You may ask questions in group chat (be patient for reply – we might have been dragged to RL for a bit or working in Photoshop/Flickr or Facebook) and there might not be another group member around to help you right away. Just repeat the question later on instead, thank you! (or maybe even search for store support group if you can’t wait)

YOU MAY SHARE MM’s and Lucky Boards/Chairs between 8AM – 12PM SLT and again from 8PM – 12AM SLT
Preferable from stores of approved designers in MAAM – click here for list
(do not promote your own store or store you work for*)
Midnight Mania etc. as long as the gifts are for Female or Male mesh bodies. Just try and make the post as short as possible (less detailed). Do not write a story about where they can find the boards …they will find it as long as you provide the landmark, just mention of it’s Fitmesh or Appliers)  Make sure to mention if the store is in ADULT sim, thanks.
