  1. Name Change?

    Ah heck, guess John Smithy right now is going to stay. Thanks, all.
  2. How does your avatar look today ?

    Scared? Of human things? Of course not!!!! The only thing that concerns me is that there is a possible spelling typo in my profile. That is what scares me! Thanks, Skell. I will have to fix that tonight.
  3. How does your avatar look today ?

    Oh, my bad. I did not know a picture was required as others posted with out. I shall rectify that.... thank you.
  4. Name Change?

    Yea, I have no problem leaving the few inventory bits I have. My avi is the same since 2009, I think. But, no spaces?? Oh gosh no. But you know, I will create an account to try then and have a friend tell me what they see. Will give it a go and try it, and I guess if I not like the way the name then shows, then bla. I will stick to what I got with avi 1. Thanks, Ariel.
  5. Name Change?

    So if I change my name, I will forever be stuck having the account name right under? Bla, I might as well make a new avi then, yes? Just not the visual I would want, you know?
  6. How does your avatar look today ?

    No, truth is SL is just messaging. Not real. Some people take it way too far. As far as what people are to their avis, I am not referring to disabilities or such. More like... other bits. However, Skell, this is not the post to have that debate. I just specified why I would not bother changing mine. If you rather have a debate on how people view SL, please move to another post. Thanks.
  7. Name Change?

    I have been toying with the idea of tweaking the avi's name. Well, toying with the idea for years. I just have an OCD concern about it. So display name is "John Smithy." John Smithy O / \ | | | I am afraid if I change it to say "The Doctor," then when people see my avi, they will see a display name and account name: The Doctor john.smithy O / \ | | | Just as i see countless avis with both display and account names. I would not want my account name shown over my avi. Too distracting. So before I go changing the name, can you tell me if there is no way around it or it may not happen, or there is a way to not have it happen at all? Thank you.
  8. How does your avatar look today ?

    My avi looks the same today as he did in 2009. Same clothes too. No reason to change. SL is just an instant messaging client in 3D, with dancing. He looks happy and is an extension of myself as people are treated as I would treat them in real life. Just as God made them, not as they want to be. So, he is good the way he is. No reason to fiddle with it. I did accidentally make him a Hobbit once. That was interesting. This him now at Inspire Space Park.
  9. Hiding Local Chat Messages - Firestorm

    I found that support group you mentioned, Nalates, and was able to ask. What someone told me worked, and I modified it a pinch. In PREFS, I searched for "fade chat after" and made my number of lines 0 and my fade after chat to 2 (lowest it goes). Then I searched for "use console" and enabled that. Now no more local chatting popping up and sits ins its tab like everything else.
  10. Someone gave me a calling card with my name and I was able to drag it onto a notecard and it became clickable. Thank you.
  11. I do not have a calling card with my name in my inventory. Can I recreate one, or wait for someone to come online in my friend's list that may have one?
  12. I have seen people do it, but I can not make it work. I put in a notecard my profile UUID in this format: secondlife:///app/agent/UUID_KEY/profile But it not work. I tried adding http:// and https://, but I can not seem to make it clickable, by me or anyone I share it with. Thoughts? Thank you.
  13. Hiding Local Chat Messages - Firestorm

    When people talk on local chat, I always get those messages scrolling, as a "toast" on my screen when I am in another chat tab. I was able to disable them as a toast but they now show up as a chat bubble type thing. I want to hide all local chat from showing up when I am not viewing it. You know, so it is not in my way of clicking or reading something else. I want local chat to stop showing up on my screen unless I am actually in the local tab like normal. I just can not find in the viewer ho to do ti. Thoughts? Thank you.
  14. Help with a viewer for a older computer

    I run Firestorm on a laptop over 10 years old, and I got it running Windows 10. I wibble wobbled it as much as I can. Need $$$ for upgrades, but not enough money or good jobs to even handle rent. But, is possible if you have all your hardware drivers updated. Depending on your install/upgrade, you may have OS conflicts from previous versions, or too much stuff to give a good size swap file a chance. I run my viewer on the lowest low graphic settings, and I hide all non-friend avis when in crowded places. It crashes constantly, and I even run on 2M download speeds (yes, two meg, the best I can afford). Maybe try cleaning your system with Ccleaner Free by Piriform, boot into Safe Mode (F8 on bootup) with Command Prompt and "chkdsk /f/r" (no quotes, of course), then boot back and run a good defrag with Defraggler Free, also by Piriform. Some basics to start with.
  15. Sending IM to Non-Searchable Person

    Thanks, all. Chris' option worked for me.
