Two Pictures, no update

We think Bruce will restore the Developer Assets to the Cluster today, which should make your developer items re-appear in ThereIM.

(Yes, I know there’s lens flare there. I toyed with removing it, but decided to be a purist) (and cursed myself for forgetting my lens hood)

Taken with a very wide angle lens (18mm)

    When i said There is for kids of all ages, i meant the 18+ who are young at heart.

    wow great pictures! and I also like the lens flare myself, not that i am particularly artistic, but i know what i like.

    Those photos are amazing!!

  5. #5 by Stephii on 2011.08.02 - 8:27 am

    To be completely honest I like the lens flare, and your pictures are breathtaking.

  6. #6 by Phil on 2011.08.02 - 6:16 am

    just couple of days and There will be reopened

  7. #7 by Corey_Lee on 2011.08.02 - 4:58 am

    The lens flare looks like a satellite πŸ™‚

  8. #8 by Mademoiselle Fifi on 2011.08.02 - 3:48 am

    There is for kids of all ages….

    Beautiful pics Gary Bob and Micheal.

    And like everyone says, its good to wear the clothing and it remains on you when you log back into the IM…..

    First thing I’m gonna do is get into one of my hoverboats and do some flying! I’ve missed flying in That’s really the big reason I’m coming back.

    Why don’t you learn how to take a picture. It’s all so damn dark. You are such a loser michael wilson. go f yourself

    • #14 by Michael Wilson on 2011.08.01 - 10:52 pm

      Ok, at, perhaps you can give me some lessons?

      • #15 by jimony on 2011.08.02 - 2:55 am

        I wonder if all the people around Las Vegas are that rude. Probably not, but I sure wouldn’t want anyone to think I live around there right now.

        That IP is at IOWait! a VPD/Dedi service.

        Hmph, i hate losers that hide there IP.

      • #18 by xSnoopy on 2011.08.02 - 6:40 am

        At least you know that 99.9999% of us are with you Michael!
        There is always going to be those .0001% malcontents that respect nothing or no one. Products of the “I’m the only one that is important” generation.
        Sad to say that they will probably be the ones that have enough money, from daddies will, to run a political campaign and we will be stuck with more morons running our country.
        Please note, I am not taking sides, they’re ALL morons!

    • #19 by Ant1977 on 2011.08.01 - 11:07 pm

      A loser doesn’t have to hide a non-descriptive name and a fake e-mail address!

      • #20 by DavyRocket on 2011.08.02 - 1:21 am

        eh.. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas I thought, or perhaps it is someone from that other so called upcoming virtual world, that is nothing more than forums? LOL or maybe its just a pissed off KID, because they wont be able to come back to the best 3d virtual world ever called There, and this kid knows it? ‘shrug. At any rate keep up the awesome work Makena.

    • #21 by Ant1977 on 2011.08.01 - 11:08 pm

      Only a loser hides behind a non-descriptive name and fake e-mail address.

    • #22 by toufovou on 2011.08.02 - 2:06 am

      You can never avoid troublemakers… Ahhhh well…
      The second photo is great btw

    • #23 by mimi06 on 2011.08.02 - 2:43 am

      non? get your nose out of your view master, and try and see the real beauty in those photographs πŸ™‚ if you need new reels to refresh your mind here’s the link dear πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      • #24 by Basya on 2011.08.02 - 11:25 am

        Oh, that takes me wa-a-a-y back! I remember we had a View Master “projector” (I think) and countless reels!

    • #25 by Fallax on 2011.08.02 - 3:11 am

      So..non…where do you come off telling someone on their own blog what to do?…Go away and play somewhere else child….

    • #26 by Wendy Stoll (Wendy50s) on 2011.08.02 - 3:15 am

      what are you, ten? No, more like seven. Notice you’re the ONLY ONE here who thinks like that. Pathetic.

    • #27 by _Taz on 2011.08.02 - 3:58 am

      Someone’s pissed theyre too young to be able to join There…@ non

  12. #28 by Jimmy Kluding on 2011.08.01 - 7:29 pm

    At firsrt I thought that those were in-world screenshots, then I thought “MW wishes that there looked that good”

  13. #29 by Defector on 2011.08.01 - 7:28 pm

    Very grateful to be able to wear Dev clothes once more. There clothes are nice but User submitted content was part of what made There so great. So far no new bugs have been discovered. Im sure the Im will be available to everyone pretty soon. Dont take my word for it though lol. Anyways, We have been having lots of fun playing around with the emotes, or at least trying to remember them ‘doh, but everything is going great. ‘tu

    • #30 by Diatribe on 2011.08.01 - 10:15 pm

      Thanks for the good news Def πŸ˜›

    Lens flare adds character…

  15. #32 by SunnyMusic on 2011.08.01 - 6:22 pm

    Wow, Dev clothes back so quickly! Yay!! Y’all are amazing!

    • #34 by Michael Wilson on 2011.08.01 - 6:42 pm

      Ok, here’s a new update:

      “SQOL is now so far at the end of the line it will take the packets from There 3 years to reach him.”.

      How’s that?

      • #35 by acemastter on 2011.08.02 - 2:38 am

        On another note, ‘yay for developer outifts appearing!

      • #37 by SQOL on 2011.08.02 - 4:42 am

    • #38 by XNecroscopeX on 2011.08.02 - 2:11 am

      Last time I checked, this was MW’s blog. With that said, he can post w.e he pleases. πŸ™‚ Have fun twiddling your thumbs at the end of the line.

  17. #39 by RockinWolfman on 2011.08.01 - 5:10 pm

    GP RockinWolfman, so much happening! Today our developer clothes (Ones created by there users.) finally showed up in our inventory. Can’t wait for the world to reopen! Great pictures, BTW…

  18. #40 by Sassybeme There on 2011.08.01 - 4:44 pm

    The second pic is just a breath taking spot on earth. Nice touch on the I was here rock. Now if only it had a boardwalk. πŸ™‚

    I thought developer stuff might take longer. so impressed.

  19. #41 by Andrew Harris on 2011.08.01 - 4:39 pm

    For some reason all these YouTube videos reminds me of this scene for some reason. I do think MW feels this way.

    At the very end.. Lex Always yells that. I can see MW yelling something like that.

  20. #42 by Cyndi Yonkers on 2011.08.01 - 4:10 pm

    Awsome Pics Michael!! Yay clothes that are not white :). Thanks to all. Cheers!!


  21. #43 by trevor9393 on 2011.08.01 - 4:06 pm

    These images are great. Where I live there aren’t that great of views to see. Also can’t wait to see all the items I Designed for There. Thanks for the updates.

  22. #44 by Kattwomann on 2011.08.01 - 3:59 pm

    Got my dev items, what little there on on this avy!

    Also must be I’m weird, but I LOVE lens flares! When I’m taking pics I try to include them!

  23. #45 by Joshua on 2011.08.01 - 3:34 pm

    I am surprised that no one seemed to notice the funny looking smiley face drawn with chalk on a rock in the second pic. Great pics, and good place to get some amazing views. Have a great one everyone and look foward to seeing you all in THERE once again.

    • #46 by jimony on 2011.08.02 - 5:43 am

      I am surprised that no Joshua seemed to notice the funny looking posts before his about the smiley face.

  24. #47 by softNdark on 2011.08.01 - 3:21 pm

    MW…. Thank you

    I had been away for awhile, so going back a few days…. looking back now and the photos are “Beautiful” !!! WOW, they look so real, you guy’s are doing a wonderful job. Let me say ‘ sorry ‘ for the ones trying to edit your work. Damn I just wish I could run a mouse with my eyes, instead of my hand smile. Then I’d really enjoy myself flying and driving all over “There”

  25. #48 by xMelodyChasex on 2011.08.01 - 2:44 pm

    Omg MW….remove what?? That first pic is amazing!!! The flare adds even more dimension :). That is wall worthy sir!!

    Oh yea and hooray for progress!!!

  26. #49 by Amanda Presswood on 2011.08.01 - 2:10 pm

    All this beauty and someone goes and spray paints a smiley face on a rock. Ugh! Keep the pics coming.

  27. #50 by softNdark on 2011.08.01 - 2:06 pm

    ooh WOW…. I miss There so much!!! Just praying my computer has enough brains to run the program (can’t get a new computer right now)

    Camo Bunny Slipper!!!

    Love the photos Michael

    GP IMAKOS here with an update.

    Today the Developer Assets were restored and it was amazing to see all the outfits.. Wow I couldn’t remember what I had in my inventory until I saw what everything looked like… needless to say. I went through every Outfit in my Inventory. Thank you !!! Bruce, Samsyn and MW for all of your Hard work

    Here is a Video of The GP’s having fun with their saved outfits.. Enjoy !!

    • #53 by Raymond on 2011.08.01 - 4:33 pm

      This is Great! Glad to see everything is coming along! Can’t wait until There finally re-opens!

    • #54 by Stephen Mol on 2011.08.01 - 4:33 pm

      Do they have yet to fix chat sounds or do those not work in ThereIM?

    • #55 by whitefeatherbeth on 2011.08.01 - 5:31 pm

      This makes me miss THERE all the more… up until now, I was not getting overly excited. Now I am sitting here looking at all of my pics I took just before THERE closed, wanting to ride my whitefeather hover board, rebuild my hood and writers sanctuary… play some spades, and just hang out and chat on the logs in Cosmo! πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing the video Imakos.

    • #56 by Bronnieb There on 2011.08.01 - 8:47 pm

      Thankyou IMAKOS you lucky guinea pig lol….these shots and pics from all of you are fabulous…keep up the good work πŸ™‚

  31. #59 by Lola_Baby on 2011.08.01 - 1:34 pm

    Fantastic!!! Developer items are coming back!?! Oh man, I miss my hoverpack butterfly wings! I am starting to believe There 2.0 might be even better this time around… Thanks for the updates!

    What a glorious blue of the ocean!

  33. #61 by Karmapup on 2011.08.01 - 1:27 pm

    Personally, I like the lens flare. Both pictures are great. Thx πŸ˜‰

    *points at the rock*

  35. #63 by GaryBob on 2011.08.01 - 12:48 pm

    The dark part of the first image made me think of Vasquez Rocks:

    Last Easter weekend I went hiking and saw Jesus die there – twice! (Passion Play Rehearsal) I didn’t see any Gorn though, so the impromptu bamboo-canon I made was a total waste…

  36. #64 by Christy Clendenen on 2011.08.01 - 12:37 pm

    Still no clothes, regular or developer * sigh* MW hates me~ LOL

  37. #66 by Cellophane Thereian on 2011.08.01 - 12:28 pm

    34 days until embarkation and triple that until I am very near the area these photos were shot.

    And to say I’m ready for both is well, you know… πŸ™‚

  38. #67 by justagreatguy on 2011.08.01 - 12:19 pm

    I like the lens flare, it looks like you did that on purpose. NICE PICS!!

  39. #68 by deadlycooler on 2011.08.01 - 12:17 pm

    The day the world opens I’m gonna jump in my buggy & race and bash some avies lmao anyways take you’re time MW!

      • #75 by mimi06 on 2011.08.02 - 2:34 am

        define old? rofl………..

      • #76 by Wendy Stoll (Wendy50s) on 2011.08.02 - 3:06 am

        I don’t think there’s an upper age limit. I know tons of folks in their 50s and 60s There. Maybe you’re a little bit too young…

      • #77 by GaryBob on 2011.08.02 - 8:47 am

        @ john: I started in There when I was 18. Some of the coolest people I met were (well) over 40. Contrary to popular belief, they can be trusted. Get over yourself.

  44. #78 by Okalnix on 2011.08.01 - 11:49 am

    Indeed the clothing are loading on ThereIM.

    • #79 by Lady_Tigrane ( on 2011.08.01 - 12:54 pm

  45. #80 by DavyRocket on 2011.08.01 - 11:47 am

    woohoo We have our inventory back. I am now wearing the DRX Designs leather jacket I made, leather pants Mercuria made, and of course SUPER BUNNIES!!!

    I also noticed the terrain is now showing up in There Maps ‘rtr

    • #81 by SnyperFla on 2011.08.01 - 12:36 pm

      aaah Super Bunnies!! How i miss the Super Bunnies πŸ˜€

  46. #82 by deadlyimmortal on 2011.08.01 - 11:47 am

    Looks nice, I can’t wait till ThereIM is up an running I wanna talk to my friends, plus buggy race!!

  47. #83 by IndyLou on 2011.08.01 - 11:25 am

    For some reason, both of these pictures really make me homesick for There’s landscaping. Racing across Kansas for Sparkles, hoverboarding across Coke Island to skill up. (wipes a tear)

  48. #84 by Santacroce on 2011.08.01 - 10:48 am


  49. #85 by JonmiChel on 2011.08.01 - 10:37 am

    Anyone else have a craving for pina coladas? ~suddenly humming a familiar tune….”If you like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain….”~

  51. #87 by Jonathan on 2011.08.01 - 10:27 am

    Is it just me, or is there a smiley face on that rock?

    • #88 by deadlycooler on 2011.08.01 - 12:19 pm

      Sure looks like a smiley face, lol

    • #89 by jimony on 2011.08.01 - 1:23 pm

      If you were a rock living in that location, wouldn’t you be smiling too?

    • #90 by softNdark on 2011.08.01 - 2:48 pm

      I saw it also ; )

    • #91 by jimony on 2011.08.02 - 3:57 am

      I think Seg_Vio was right, it’s Wilson from Cast Away!

  52. #92 by xSnoopy on 2011.08.01 - 10:11 am

    Now I know where you are…
    The offer for the Lava Flo still stands!!
    But wait, the second pic looks like there was one there not to long ago πŸ™‚

  53. #93 by SnyperFla on 2011.08.01 - 10:07 am

    I actually like the pic as is. Nice work.

    Sounds Great! First thing i am gonna wear when i get into therIM is my ” SHUT THE DUCK UP” shirt…lol. Love the pic of the rocky beach.

    • #97 by Cellophane Thereian on 2011.08.01 - 12:25 pm

      First things in There:

      I am throwing on my checked pants and Auten hoodie and rolling over to Maidenflight first thing; even before I take a peek to see if I lifted my Hood before – well you know- or if my Hood still exists.

      After running through Maidenflight like a bat out of hell (hell being no There for over a year!) I am teleporting to each of my old There Homes to see if they are still mine. If I let go of my Hood I will be scouting for a site for a new one. If my There Home aren’t ‘mine’ any longer I will be scouting for a few of those too.

      And then I will go to the Charity Tree Lots to dream about renting a lot or two this year.

      I will then teleport around to all of my favorite areas: Wordgrove, Saja main entry point, that place with the red mushrooms and Adventure Quest.

      Then I will spend a few hours over a few days of ‘me’ (Cellophane) time.

      After a few hours of ‘me’ time I’m going to find Papabare and Dream (if he isn’t partying in Amsterdam) and I’m going to try to hug both! πŸ™‚

      I am so eff-ing excited!
