When in Rome, do as the Romans do.


F the frog-eaters.

Top story! Roleplay sims have rules!

In other news, water found to be wet. :P

This is far from abnormal behavior for a roleplay sim.

Most RP Sims have provisions for OOC visitors, though.


I don't see how this incident at Versailles is any different from the many modern venues in SL that require formal dress and ask you to leave if you're not wearing formal attire. A lot of them are far less polite about it than these people at Versailles. Oh yes -- now I see the difference. At Versailles they are kind and polite enough to provide you with proper attire so that you can attend and enjoy the event without personal expense. Stop trying to blame the people who are trying to accurately recreate history when the person to blame is the visitor who didn't follow the clearly publicized dress code for the event.


Yes RP sims do have attire rules, especially in historical rp sims and sims based around courts. Just like in RL if you showed up to a white tie event wearing street clothing you would be wildly underdressed. This applies in SL as well.
