There used to be a HUD that told you who was at the Hangout. Is that still available (or even working), Maureen?

I did send out a message to the Forum Cartel  group that we were there. That sometimes gets people there, but its always been deserted when I've dropped by.

No, the HUD doesn't work anymore.  Not sure if the server it used was taken down or what, but it hasn't worked for a long time now.

Off topic - but what are the best times to actually run into folks at that place?

Back a decade ago, the place was hopping all the time, but it's pretty random these days unless a party / gathering is actually planned.  Given that, I think that **sometimes** a few of the US folks will still pop over on Friday evenings.

I'll volunteer my server if there's actually interest in something like that again.

There is an in world hangout related to the community forum ? o:

Not LL sponsored, but yes.  There is an inworld group called The Forum Cartel and the group has a hangout sim w/ a bar, beach, fire pit, other stuff.  The group was started in early 2017 by a bunch of Forum regulars, mostly as a place to meet up inworld.

Hangout SLURL:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Allana/217/36/27

Group info: secondlife:///app/group/d0f1fa9f-1a8b-8074-b111-a3fac92fea07/about

I know that some felt it was creepy for people to know when they were at the hangout, but I always thought it was very helpful.  There were many times when I was inventory sorting and would see names pop up on the HUD and decide to hop over to chat with folks.  It was also good for the periodic newbies that landed there as one of the regulars would usually pop on over to greet them.  I've no doubt that the HUD was responsible for many of our spontaneous gatherings back then.

I, for one, would love to see a HUD resurrection.  I'm not sure if anyone still has a copy of the HUD or if it was 'modify'.  I'm drawing a blank on the avatar that created it for us.  Maybe @Maureen Boccaccio remembers who created it and/or has a copy of it still.

Packrat that I am, I still have mine*. It was created by Slack Zapedzki. Unfortunately, it's no copy and no mod. I also have a plugin script created by Rika Watanabe for the paid version of Mystitool that recreated the Hangout HUD's behaviour after the original HUD's server shut down, but that - again - is no-mod :(

*The HUD is in a 'Skell's SL Museum' folder in my inventory, where I've saved interesting things from his history inworld. It keeps my very first freenis company, among other things xD

LOL - I has been a rough week - and by the time I got back here and saw this, I'm past the 24 hours for allowed editing.  *sigh*

Anyway... Hi Rio.  Nice to see you pop in.

All, heads up!

Ghosty will be spinning at The Hangout upcoming in about a week or so. He's trying to find the time to put a set together but just wanted to let you all know since so many are wondering when people tend to show up there.

He'll send a notice through the group when he's ready. He is aiming for Friday, 8/3 (although that is looking doubtful) or Friday 8/10.

/me votes for 8/10 - I'll be out of town on 8/3 with a laptop that can only barely log in to SL
