  1. I view option (2) as being the far more desirable one - this would guarantee that no special measures would be needed by the HUD or its owner. As for "IP purists", names are not the important "intellectual property", the movements are. And, as I mentioned, watching a dance being performed SHOULD be considered as demoing the animation; who could possibly object to that??
  2. TBH, I am not 100% certain what the viewer (currently) can know. It may take some redesigning to make this information available. It seems to me that any information available to a HUD COULD be made available to the viewer. Yes, we have multiple dance HUD makers in use. Each person has his/her preference. My preference is Barre Dance HUD - which will no longer be receiving updates, ever. Despite this fact, it is the ONLY HUD that operates the way I want. I have bought and tried all the others, nothing else comes close. It's not necessary for HUD B to know what HUD A is doing. Nor is it necessary to manage who is dancing. In our multi-driver situation, we communicate when we change who is controlling the dancing. It is seriously too much effort and too time consuming for each person to manually type out the name of the animation currently in use. Even in a single HUD situation, just being able to know the name of the animation in use could be thought of as "demoing" the animation; if I like it, I at least know what to buy!
  3. The blue dialog box merely tells you who is inviting you. If you are already invited to two other dance HUDs, you have no way to know who is controlling you at that moment. There is also no way to know the name of the animation being used.
  4. Yes, it is possible to have multiple HUDs controlling me at any given moment, but we take turns controlling the crowd to prevent this from happening.
  5. It already CAN be put into a dance hud - all it has to do is use a llSay(channel, text)... and then each person wears something that listens to that channel. The problem is that each HUD would almost certainly use its own channel. This adds needlessly to the number of attachments (each invitation would require its own listener) It would also require that each maker adds this option. The only way to guarantee universal adoption is to have it handled by the viewer.
  6. Ok.... on an unrelated note.... I accidentally put my cursor into the quoted text, but no matter what I did I couldn't exit it. I tried TAB and ESC.
  7. 1) Animation Explorer does not include HUDs that I have been invited to, 2) It does not name the animation being used.
  8. SMH... I have no idea how to quote - I thought putting a check next to "Quote" would do it, but obviously not. I was replying to Quartz Mole/
  9. Thank you, this is exactly what I was looking for. What I was hoping for was that these could be added to the avatar properties, which could make them easily discernible. These could then be added to the viewer as options to be displayed as desired.
  10. I'm not sure where to post this. I looked at the JIRA site, but I didn't see any place to post suggestions. There are times when I, intentionally, am on more than one dance HUD. I would like a way to tell whose HUD is controlling me at that moment. Similarly, I would like to know the name of the animation being used.
  11. Merchants who don't tie their email into offline SL IMs are not interested in providing customer support.
  12. The only part of the package that appeals to me are the added groups. These are not worth $150/yr to me. Sure, the stipend is nice but also not worth $150. Comparing the price to 2 premium accounts vs premium plus means nothing unless you can apply the 2 premium accounts to a single avatar (as far as I know, you cannot).
  13. Sign up and not pay at that time? I may be strange.... but I'd rather pay first, knowing that all I have to do is wait for a last name I like and then pick it.
  14. That's actually ILLEGAL here for most products (gas and cigarettes being excluded from this). The thinking is that the consumer has no way to know how much of what is being paid is for the product and how much is tax.
