New V2 and Profiles

Recommended Posts

I hate this update its lame with the social Network part like someone said before anyone can now read "your" wall and see what all your freinds are talking about......Secoundly profiles take so long to load now they just stay now as a grey square and do not load at all it is annoying but when they do load it is far and not os frequent as I would like.... if anyone wants the specs on my computer I would gladly share but for now This broswer is now bleh to me :( hope it gets fixed soon.

THANK YOU!

Logging in with all my avatars and shutting that damned feed off now.

Is there any way to make it so I never see that feed on anyone ELSE'S profile page, too?

Take yourself up to 20 of them and then try it - but with the last one in your list.

 

I've apparantly got a magic 8 of them that will not go away. Unfortunately one of them is something I only put in there as a test...

default is only "about" when the feed is not available =/

::does not like inconsistancy, optional element shouldn't be defaults::

 

ETA:
and still no classified section

Can anyone explain why I see all that spam on my "Home" page? What determines whose spam chatter gets posted there? One of my alts that has no Interests recorded and virtually no "Friends" other than my own alts had a wall full of spam from strangers to him. WTF?

How can I turn that "Home" tab off completely? 

How can I turn off seeing the "Feed" instead of "About" as the default for everyone else's profile?

apparently "home" is a combination of all the feeds in your friends list....

which also includes backlinks for anything those friends post on other peoples feeds eyeroll

This is really bothering me from a privacy POV - I can see conversations among people I don't know just because one of them is on my friends list. I don't want to see those conversations. I've got to believe this is a violation of TOS in some way - I certainly don't want anyone seeing my conversations, and I don't want to see theirs! And I have not found a way to turn it off. I turned off mine in my settings, but I can still see the conversations of others.

Apparently the spam I had on that one alt was because of one person on my Friends list that loves the new shout/spam feature, and was using it a lot. I didn't remember ever Friending her with that account. I de-friended her from that account, as that alt really didn't even have any reason to be friends with her.

I finally found the completely hidden, doesn't show unless you mouseover the exact spot, tiny 'x' that allows you to 'hide' the spam you have already been hit with. Those past spam items don't go away even after you set the privacy setting for your own feed to Nobody.

Don't know yet if future spam will show on the home page if you turned your profile's feed option off. The page still shows, so it probably still will receive spam.

Canoro -- you miss the point.  Second Life IS already a social network.  SL is a system where you can socialize with people all over the world without physically moving.  it's a system where you can collaborate with friends and colleagues regardless of time zones, age, physically deformity, or distance. 

If SL worked a quarter as well as it should be working by now, nobody would even remember that facebook even existed.  "Facebook, oh yeah, that was that nonGraphical web forum thing that nobody used because everyone was in 3D worlds like Second Life by that time..." 

Now, surely a comm system we can use when we aren't inworld can be a useful thing.  But stuck into the profiles?  Do YOU hang out in your profile in order to chat with friends?  Is that how Facebook works?  Or in FB, do you log into the site and tada, you see all your friends' posts?  Once again LL has shown us that even though the viewer is busted and the grid problematic, it will waste time on a frivolous do-nothing addon rather than fix the critical problems.  And even that simple addon they'll utterly fail to get even remotely right.  Having a FBlike wall to write on - Good.  Having them stuck someplace where almost no user bothers to go instead of in a global website all can go to easily like chats.secondlife.com -- not just bad, but sad bad.

Another example of LL taking the sheet metal it was supposed to use to patch the hull of the ship, folding into an origami swan instead, and throwing it overboard to see if it would float.  It doesn't, and deeper into Davy Jones locker do we and all of SL continue to sink.

*Sigh* Even if you turn off your own Feed (set privacy to Nobody), and uncheck all 6 Notification options, that "Home" page still get spammed by every Friend that you have who uses this so-called 'feature'.

Where is the OFF switch, PLEASE?

Couldn't agree more. I want the thing turned off. I changed my settings and it still doesn't stop. I do not want to see other people's conversations.

LL - this isn't working correctly. The settings are not sticking. It needs to be fixed.

Whatever bug you are experiencing, it is simply not affecting everybody. It would be good to take that straight to JIRA or support so they can look at the specifics of your setup and account.

After upgrading to latest SL V2 on the the newest Macbook Pro using Lion, the profiles are broken again.  Had the problem before but it went away.  Now only get what looks likes links (underlined text) and no profile info.  

Any ideas?

Judging by some other threads here, the problem seems to be: New Viewer + the Lion OS.
