What are some of your pet peeves?

03..People who include "Master" in their Display Name. 

04..People who work in SL under one name, have a different Display Name and yet an even DIFFERENT System Name. Confuse much?

Re: 03...  That isn't a peeve of mine, rather makes me amused every time I see that. "Master", "Mistress" or "Dom(me)" as Display name only gives ME the impression that this person has some trouble with their own self-consciousness.

I mean, those titles as group tags, okay, I myself use such a group tag at times - but as Display names, that's just ridiculous to me. YMMV.

 

Re: 04: That's really confusing. :o

In the eyes of LL, yes, but that doesn't make it the correct thing to do. It is easy enough to prove innocence just by comparing IPs on the account in question. Unless, of course, someone has figured out a way to spoof IP addresses that I haven't heard about. This is just one of the many examples of LL covering their @$$ at what some might consider the expense of the residents. It's all part of the way LL does business. Which, as we all know, is rarely (if ever these days) is in the best interest of the customer.

It MAY be that the the poster's account has been phished.  It could also be that the poster created an account for this purpose.  However, the ToS specifically states that you are responsible for whatever is done with your account.  If you got phished, and the phishers use your account to lure others, it is still your fault in the eyes of Linden Lab.  This is why it is so important to report a possible compromise of your account as soon as possible.

While on the whole you're right and that is a possibility, that can usually be ruled out with a quick, 30 second check of the profile in question. Several years old, a whole range of groups including paid sim groups, photos of the (mesh) avatar, a couple of picks... yeah, that's a victim.

Edit: Daily reminder that we still don't have 2FA for accounts that are hooked up to credit cards, which is a criminal negligence lawsuit waiting to happen (also daily reminder that a terms of service is literal toilet paper whenever it conflicts with the appropriate set of laws).

01..Unreadable Fancy Fonts for Display names that are VERY different from the avatar's system name.

02..People who get angry when you call them by their system name, because their display name is unreadable.

03..People who include "Master" in their Display Name. 

04..People who work in SL under one name, have a different Display Name and yet an even DIFFERENT System Name. Confuse much?

Preach.

And I think #2 is the big one there. If you want to use four different names or use an unreadable mess of symbols because you're still in the early 2000s MSN mindset, then sure whatever go for it. Coupling that with getting annoyed whenever people use your system name? How about no.

I do love it when Miss Garbagename moans at someone on a phone viewer, or any other that renders the special characters as a row of boxes. That's always fun.

While I do agree with most of this, the fourth entry is one that I can somewhat understand ... It's been my experience that it is far more common with those who RP as more than one character - be it on the same sim or on several sims. Display Names have a seven day timer that is triggered each time you change your name - completely useless if you're not spending an entire week in one place, as one character.

It can also simply be that their Display Name is set to a character's name for when they are Role Playing and that they do so often enough to feel that there is no need whatsoever to change it.

Not all that confusing to be honest ... but it does take a certain mindset to untangle it.

Honestly,I think a lot of the pet peeves that I had were from years ago..I think removing myself from the places I was and the crowds that I would hang in solved a lot of that..

They are nice places to visit,but living there was really rough at times.. I think it was just too many ego's in one place..Mine included,because I sure wasn't the cure..hehehehe

I think the biggest peeve I've had lately was the other day when my inventory went poof.. That's about all that I can think of really,and even then after the initial shock of it all..I was like,well if it doesn't come back,then i guess this is it until I feel like starting over..If I ever do.

They got it back pretty quick ,which was nice..

If I had to pick something,it would probably be griefers, even though sometimes they really crack me up with the things they come up with..Like this one time hearing "Hey Hey Hey!" Jello Pudding" over and over, while the blocks filling the sim had picture of Bill Cosby on them.. At the time it just had me in tears laughing..hehehehe

I really haven't seen many of those kind of griefer attacks in a good while though,to be honest..

Normally that’s not a peeve unless they also resort to #2 when the uninitiated use the wrong name for the situation....

Today's pet peeve / irritation (since it has now happened multiple times): Creators that send out notecards containing pictures & information about items at an event that ended days ago or an inworld sale that has already ended -- i.e. sending out the same notecard over and over w/out bothering to update it to remove stuff that is no longer valid.

I now remember why I left this store group last year.
