2013: What’s your digits, the Monday meme

From Strawberry Singh:

Meme instructions: Share your avatar’s digits (if you want to, not necessary) and then copy paste the following questions and answers into your post, remove my answers and input your own. Don’t forget to share your link in the comments of this post and if you decide to share your numbers, the Flickr group for the Digits challenge is here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/digits

Average body proportions for Adult males, females and children, link here.

Proportions Challenge Questions:

  1. Do you try and keep your avatar’s body proportionate and similar to the “average” proportions pictured above?   Not really, but consider this:  proportions are not the same everywhere you go in the universe. What I mean is, I do pay attention to proportions because of the very many places I have traveled. SL proportions are completely out of whack, and so this exercise of looking at the RL proportions of human figures is really interesting, but also not as much a guide as one might think…. or wish.
  2. What do you dislike the most about the SL avatar mesh? Most of the avatar is poor. Imagine a group of folks sitting down as a committee (as Second Life gets built) to work out the data set and then figure out how to “slider it” a bit.  Do you suppose they ever cracked a book of figure studies? No. Sloppy work. What bothers me the most… I guess that what erks me is that even to the logic of the SL sliders, the volumes do not work as they should work. Each scale is 1 to 100 for a feature, but does 50 mean halfway, no it does not. Does 50 mean average, NO, it does not.  Very sloppy work.  And yet, however would we ask them to fix it?  How would retro compatible logic be maintained?  Sigh.
  3. Does it bother you when you see other avatars that are not proportionate at all?  Nope, it doesn’t bother me at all. I find the Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations a bit of a zest.
  4. Even though this is a virtual world and people can be anything they want to be, do you feel when they are in human form, they should try to keep their proportions close to average? Nope! However, I’m testing out a longer arm set myself.  I’ve read for a couple of years (See Penny Patton’s blog entries) that the SL mesh faults females with tiny arms (T-Rex syndrome some call it) and I had not realized how awful it was until I checked my figure against some of the proportion items offered in this meme.  You almost have to push your slider to 100 to get normal arms. Sloppy SL, very sloppy.

Now the second part of the challenge is sharing your digits. You absolutely do not have to do that if you don’t want to or if you haven’t changed much from last year when you shared them then.
