Evie’s Closet SL Group Closed

As somebody kindly pointed out to me the other day, it’s been 8 weeks since I launched the new Hippogroup for Evie’s Closet.

During that time, I’ve sent about 407,082 separate messages to the old SL Group, advising them of the changes, and hoping my mindless spam would prompt them to make the switch. Unfortunately, it seems many individuals did not receive (or did not note) these messages, and I suppose that’s simply a blindingly clear argument *for* the adoption of a new system.

Today, it was time to bite the bullet and close it down. So I sent one final notice, and am now in the process of gently removing those individuals who did not voluntarily leave the Second Life Group “Evie’s Closet”.

I do apologise for the brilliantly impersonal notification the Lindens have blessed us with, which pops up in your IMs… “You have been ejected from the group “Evie’s Closet” by Evangeline Miles.” It can’t be helped, I’m afraid. 😦

Evie's Closet SL Group Closed

As for the brand spanking *NEW* Group……

HippoGroup Join Terminals are available for your clicking pleasure at the Main Store, and *most* of the other Evie’s Closet locations around SL. Click once to join, and receive a present for your trouble. 🙂 All notices are sent here, and you can even revisit the signs to browse through past messages, if you suspect Second Life has eaten some.

So I’m posting this blog, in the hope that if you, or someone you know, received an ejection message from me in the last 24 hours, it explains why, and softens the blow just a little.

Thank you to each and every person who continues to choose to support Evie’s Closet.

  2. I’m glad you posted this – I get notices from other groups, but I haven’t gotten one from yours in ages and was going wtf this morning. 😉

  3. Yes, I’m glad this post was here. I hadn’t received any notices about group changes, so I was mystified by the ejection, too. Off to join the new group!

  4. I, too, had not received any notices about the new group, and I do read my notices every day. I am glad to know it wasn’t something I said….

  5. Me: Evie ejected me!

    BF: What did you do now?

    Me: No, Evie! The person whose clothes you like!

    BF: <> You must have done something! (accusingly)

    (he likes evie’s dresses)

    Just keep making the magic dresses Evangeline!

  6. I tried to join the hippogrup, but it doesent allow me…its closed? o.O

    • Nope, not closed, Isabelli, sometimes the scripts blow out when too many people hit the store at one time. Try again, should be okay to join now. 🙂
