lol avatart.... :smileyvery-happy:

The removing ID function only works on your screen, not anyone else's. I think King's point was if they removed the "Taking pictures" text and the shutter sound from everyone else's perspective, it would alleviate the problems/arguments that arise when people take pictures.

Ah I see. So if we covertly took puctures it would eliminate the problem? Methinks that is like thr current ignore feature which blocks the offender on the victims screen only. It just serves in making the person photgraphed unaware and not really a full solution either :smileysad:

I still don't understand why taking screen shots is creepy or offensive.

I just took a screenshot of this forum page.

Oh you little /"$/"%$?%$ !! :smileysurprised: 

I had issue with take at first. But I have issue with pictures in real life too so...

Strange thing. Now that I got used to it and don't care anymore. I feel more comfortable with pictures in real life too. :smileyhappy:

Can someone explain HOW it is wrong and WHY it is creepy?

I don't run around home snapping photos, I wouldn't waste drive space. Most avatars are not snapshot worthy.

But I do sometimes take photos of event spaces. Is this creepy if other avatars are present? If so, why?

It get creepy when for the third time in a day you have someone in default wear sniff a woman/girl crouch and start taking pictures of "smexy avatars"

After that it's like "burned cat fears cold water" You see everyone taking pictures as the creep from 3 days ago.

That's what happen when you tend to forget you're not your avatar.

I would say around my 2nd to 4th month on home I was bit like that. Kinda forgot, blurred line between me and Doc.

Before that I didn't identify with that avatar. After that I started "getting it" more. It's a learning process. Like everything else.

Side note:

You don't own your avatar. Sony and Developers own all content that constitutes the virtual you. The same companies that provide us with products that create our virtual selfs give us the same option to image capture their product.

Home is not real life.

But if Home was in anyway equivalent to the real world, anyone can take my photo in a public setting... to which there is no legal recourse. It is considered public domain.

Re: PS Home Creeps

Sometime around the 4th of July, a friend and I dressed our avis in patriotic costumes and had an impromptu photo shoot in the casino. Someone using a female avatar happened to run by and assumed I was taking photos of them. They became very angry, and made several disparaging remarks about what she thought I would be doing with the imaginary photographs of her avatar.

 

I tried to explain to them that I wasn't even taking a photo of their avatar, but they refused to listen to reason. After several more vulgar and hate filled PMs that then turned into XMB messages along the same lines, I had to block them. 

 

So, this idea of being victimized by someone taking pictures, has been taken to level that innocent photographers having some fun with a friend now become the subject of abuse. I'm all for silliness, but this is the wrong kind. Just something to consider.

I once answered my front door while Homing. Upon the visitors departure, I sat back down on my couch, and in doing so sat on the corner of my controller causing my avatar to hurl into a random avatar posing near the Aurora chase game.

The avatar operators reaction was quite strong. She called me a pervert and typed "reported".

Now if I had sat on the controller intentionally, I could understand her point.

I pm'd her a brief explanation. I received no reply.
