Even after LL started the user name system, you could still get a legacy name by going to another authorized site that used the LL Registration API to register.  I though I heard that they were stopping the use of legacy names on those sites, but I can't remember where I heard it nor do I know where to find that information... so it's possible they're still around.

as far as i know you can no longer get legacy names on third party sites i tried several months ago on a couple of sites one only offered Lastchance as a name the other had a couple of other names to choose from i tried several first names even my SL first name which is unique i'm the only person on the grid that uses it every single time i got that registrations had exceeded the daily limit occasionally that the name was taken this was over several days at various different times one of the third party sites has since made it's registration page password potected so no one can access it

But do they actually work Marianne?

I have a list of several registration portals that all have the same list, but last time a checked the registration fails at the last minute with a variety of errors, most common ones were something reaching the limit for new accounts that day or the limit for new accounts on that email address (even if it is a new address). I will test some again. ;)

I did see somewhere that the Teens not old enough to join the main grid, can get in when they turn 16 with their old names & their rezz day is when they join. Maybe its something to do with that.

  • 1 month later...

this is so annoying =.= me and my rl sister have been hunting for sites allowing us to register for sl with legacy names since july and we keep missing sites that work! we did have legacy names but a hacking incident resulted in both of us losing them. people just dont give quite the same respect to you in sl if there is a resident stuck on the end of your username -.- and what are LL doing about all this hatred for the resident title.... nothing... :/
