    Say-sher, Sike-er, Seeker... and all points in between, all thanks to a noob's "clever" made up spelling of "seeker" and... spelling it wrong! FWIW many people thought, up until recently, that I'm black irl, too. Nope, totally white bread.

    The interweb is an interesting place.

    I thought you were French.

  2. The slider in the basic settings is about useless. Skip it and fine tune your settings to match your computer and taste.

    Basic shaders should always be on. So should atmospheric shaders unless you're feeling nostalgic for 2006. If you have a computer that can handle it, Advanced Lighting Model should usually be on. It will kill performance on old and low end graphics cards. 

    128M is usually the highest you should set draw distance. Set particles lower to improve performance. 

    OpenGL Vertex Buffer Objects should be on unless you're using an old AMD video card that is well past its expiry date. Antialiasing should be at least 2x, except on terrible computers. Texture memory should be 512MB (if you're running a third party viewer, set it higher if you can).

    If you have a Mac, HiDPI displays should be off. Unless your Mac is really new and really fast.

    Water reflections is up to you, whatever you think looks good and doesn't tank performance. I think all static objects is a good balance.

    Shadows should probably be set to none unless you have a very good computer or are taking pictures. 

    The settings under "mesh",  and avatar detail and physics should all be high, and avatar hardware skinning should be checked. Turn Avatar Complexity and Max # of non-imposter avatars down if you're running on a potato.

    Mute.. what's mute?.. is that some key word for go louder?

    People who need mute lists just have not yet learned to not take everything so personal yet.

    Blocked.

    Better beware of that region. It may be peaceful and quiet now, but it has a notorious past of being a hangout for 'the cool kids' (i.e. trolls and very mean people). They tend to cycle around the grid, occupying places such as Korea1, Ahern, and Waterhead, so they may end up in Violet again, at some point.

    They move when LL turns off voice in their current hangout. If voice is off, chances they'll show up are low. If LL left voice on in one hub and stopped routing people there when they tried to login to an offline region, it would go a long way to making everyone happy.

    I'm a little confused why a guy would play as a girl just to have sex with another guy.  Aren't there MANY gay sims they can go to that will have what they're looking for?

    Because it's about gender expression, not tricking straight guys into having SLex with a supermodel. They aren't looking for gay sex, they're looking for a gender experience they feel comfortable with.

    In SL, I think it's generally best to take the blue pill and enjoy your steak.

    Hmm.. UNLESS you are a female that creates a male avatar SOLELY for the purpose of gaining real life money or lindens from unsuspecting people via second life.

    For this reason, I disagree with second life allowing voice changers, I think there should be some way to discriminate should you want to, between a RL man or woman... at least the option would be nice. I was just catfished for 3 years by a 'man' in sl that turned out to be a woman with a voice changer program.

    How about mandatory cybersecurity training on Orientation Island? If you think someone is using voice morphing software, ask them to whisper. That makes it much easier to spot.
