I suspect that you may be trying to enter Second Life from your web browser.  Don't do that.  Download and install a Second Life viewer, and use it to log in.

Oh, I wish I hadn't walked away from the computer before sending in my answer. The first thing that jumped into my mind was that you'd tried to log-in as "Doorway".

I'm glad you found your way in!

As for appearing to be an idiot, welcome to the club (and note Rolig's signature).

;-)

Names are curious things. I suppose a few of them are created without thought, but I think most people put a little effort into them. I want to acknowledge that effort when I understand it. I've got some idea why Rolig picked "Loon", but no idea why she picked "Rolig". KarenMichelle Lane is a complete mystery to me. ;-)

I have been "Rolig" in my mind for many years, so that was an easy call. In Swedish, "Rolig" means "humorous" or "funny", as in a funny story. In Danish or Norwegian, it means "calm". Either is an aspirational statement for me. "Loon" was an afterthought, selected only because it was short, easy to spell, fit my sense of whimsy, and was among those available the week I entered SL.

I thought "Rolig" was probably a European name. I should have done some hunting. You mean "Loon" isn't aspirational as well? I'm heartbroken. I'm "Maddy" in RL and terrible with names, so that was simple. I picked McMasters because I'm half Irish and there was no McMistress.

I'm easy, KarenMichelle Lane is my writing pseudonym in real Life. I'm still very unpublished :( - I 1st started using it over 20 years ago. My 1st 2D Virtual World was "Worlds Away". Some 13 years ago.

The name was created when my BFF Karen and I were thinking of what pseudonym I should use for my budding writing career. I'm lazy I'll admit. My RL name is Michelle so KarenMichelle was born after a few glasses of wine and it stuck!.

My decision to use "Lane" will have to remain shrouded in mystery for a while longer I'm afraid. I was glad to see it offered as a last name in SL and I waited hours for it to be offered to me when I first registered.

Well, I was thinking of Lane as in Lois. As she was a reporter and you are a writer, that's good enough for me.

That's her story and I'm sticking to it! :D
