Category : Amaretto Groups Info

Happy Thursday! This week I am excited for the 2nd installment of my series of Spotlights dedicated to our amazing group moderators.  The moderator in the spotlight this week is one of the 2 mods I enjoy watching switch seamlessly between helping our breeders in 2 different languages!!

Angie Jacobus is a wonderful moderator helping out in both the main Amaretto group and the Amaretto Multi-language group and if you ask me her English is as perfect as her German!  I truly enjoy watching our multi-language mods jump back and forth helping our breeders in both groups.  Angie I don’t know what we would do without you!! Here are the answers Angie gave to my probing questions!

 

*Please tell the community a little about yourself. Where you are from and what brought you to Second Life?

I’m from Bavaria in Germany and after a friend told me about SL I made my account

 

*Which Amaretto Breedables do you own?

I breed horses and K-9

 

*How long have you been involved with Amaretto Breedables?

About 2 weeks after the release of the horses I started with breeding them

 

*How did you get started in breedables?

I got a starter pair from a friend and after their first bundle I was addicted  

 

*Do you own other breedables besides Amaretto?

Beside the horses and dogs I have some cats (KittyCats)

 

*What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Horses?

I try for some different projects, e.g. I try to get maximum red on black/white, maximum rainbow, maximum pink … – and I always have some siblings in my herd and already got some Albinos, and I try for the Galaxy and Confection horses and for sure the monthly project from Amaretto, like the new Crazed now

*What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto K-9s?

With my K-9 I also try for the monthly project Crazed (earlier Show dog and Twist) – and I also try Mutts and Blanco’s, I already got a Blanco earlier 🙂 – and I love the Rainbow Dawilds and the spotted (Harlequin Dane + spotted eye + spotted nose)

 

*What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Birds?

I don’t breed the birds

 

*What are some other things that you enjoy doing in Second Life when you’re not taking care of your breedables?

I’m manager of a known market (Sweetflowers) and I’m supporter in the German Firestorm support group.  To be honest, I don’t have much time for other things, but when I have time I love to do hunts – and sure I love shopping 🙂

 

*What is it that you enjoy most about being an Amaretto Group Moderator?

I love to talk to other people and help them with hints and I love talking about different experiences in breeding

 

I hope you all learned a little more about our lovely Angie! Be sure to say hello when you see her in the groups! Just a reminder to our Amaretto Community, the Amaretto Group Moderators are not privy to any inside Amaretto information, nor are they told things in advance. They are here to help out in our groups and lend a hand when they can.  The moderators have been around a long time and have many suggestions to help when you have issues but if all else fails please file a ticket on our support system and a CSR or a member of Amaretto Staff will assist you!

 

Check out the pictures below of Angie’s breeding set up and of course a selfie! Until next time happy breeding!!

Stop by any of our (LINK)>store locations and pick these up for free and keep them at you ranch or where ever you may need to get the info quick. Hope this helps and Happy Breeding!

Amaretto Mentor Group

I wanted to use my blog today to remind you all of one of the great things that Amaretto offers as assistance new breeders to the Amaretto Community!

 

The Amaretto Mentor Program was an idea born from our wonderful staff and community via the A.M.O.C. group meetings, has come to life to help anyone in need of information and guidance from an experienced breeder.  The Amaretto Mentor Program is something that everyone can take part in.

 

If you would like to help out a new breeder or even a breeder that’s been in the game for a while who just has some questions, then we encourage you to go to the Haven sim, University sim or the Amaretto main store and sign up to become a Mentor.  You can click the “Become a Mentor” board and you will be assigned a group tag of Mentor.  Then you just need to go into the Amaretto Mentor group and introduce yourself and see if anyone needs any help!

 

The mentors are not going to be Amaretto staff, just giving people who are willing to help with issues and questions one might have when breeding Amaretto animals.  Of course the Mentors will be able to contact Amaretto Staff with any questions they may have, but we want to encourage everyone in the community to extend a helping hand and share your knowledge of Amaretto Breedables.

 

Now if you have questions about breeding or you’re a new breeder in the community, you can go to the Haven sim, University sim or the Amaretto main store and sign up to become a Mentee.  You can click the “New to Amaretto Breedables” board and you will be assigned a group tag of Mentee.  Then you just need to go into the Amaretto Mentor group and introduce yourself and ask if anyone is around that could answer some of your questions!

 

We look forward to hearing many wonderful stories of the community coming together to help one another, and in return seeing many beautiful breedables posted in the groups!

 

Until next time, Happy Breeding & Mentoring everyone!

Today I wanted to remind you all some things that we Amaretto Staff try to do to bring ourselves out into the community to hear what you the breeders have to say.

 

First are the daily Questions & Answers that the CSRs and Avalon do on a daily basis.  Each day they go out and pick a different market or store to go to and invite you the community to come over and chat and ask questions or just hang out.  They want to hear from you how things are going in the market and what things you like and don’t like, things you would like to see added or any ideas you might have regarding Amaretto.  Don’t be shy go over and talk to them.  All we ask is that you approach the staff in a respectful manner when there.  You know the old saying, you catch more flies with honey than vinegar!  But if you have a problem or a question please feel encouraged to attend these Questions and Answers and let us know what’s going on.

 

The next thing is our monthly events.  Each month the staff puts together what we hope are fun events for the community to attend.  These events range from the Breedable Costume Contests, to Fishing Events, to Horse Races to a good old fashion barn dance. We ask around and want ideas and input on these events from you out there in the community because we want these to be fun events that you all want to attend. Take a little break from staring at 99% pregnant horses and come hang out with the Amaretto staff for an hour or two.  So if there are events that you’d like to see us do more of please let us know about them, we want your suggestions.  You can drop suggestions in any suggestion box located at the Amaretto stores.

 

We hope our community knows how important your input is to us and that you feel good about coming to us at any time!

 

 

Until next time, Happy Breeding everyone!!!

Ever wonder where you need to turn when looking for answers to your questions?

 

Well you could come ask them at the Q&A’s that the Amaretto Staff holds at different market sites, or you could ask in the main groups, or you could just go on the Amaretto Web Site, it is a very helpful place to start if you are looking for answers.
