  1. I appreciate the reply. Actually, I found it. It was under Environment Editor> Sky Presets> New Preset> Lighting (tab)> Scene Gamma.
  2. I can't seem to find an answer via forum search or on the web, hence my question -- where are the gamma settings in the latest SL viewer? I haven't bothered to alter gamma since version 1.23, however I can't seem to locate the setting and I thought it was in the environment editor.
  3. So long as displaying both (user and display name) are the default behavior, I'm not necessarily concerned about screen clutter. In my opinion, what's important is that the user is conscious of disabling user names, should they choose to do so. Whats important to me is the knowledge that not everyone will be conscious of that. There will always be new or naive users, but considering both names are listed as the default behavior I'm of the opinion it's a no-brainer. I would rather see the situation avoided and the benefits still achieved by simply getting rid of the limited batch

  5. CF, I guess you're just not grasping the point. Consider this - You have never seen a single instance of somebody impersonating a Linden with group names. Fine and dandy. I'm not convinced that your experience is a valid statistical sampling, but let's assume for the moment that there have been no instances on record of this happening. Why then, would the Lindens feel it necessary NOW to ban the use of their name as a display name? And why in the world would you object to letting residents switch off the capability to use their name as a display name? I don't know but if they were that

  7. There definitely needs to be a way to show the users name in your friends list, if nothing else so you can keep track of who's who from one week to the next. A toggle that allows the user to see one or the other, or perhaps both would be very useful.
  8. LMAO , Seriously?, you're going to try and say that you are not still comparing Group Tags/Titlers to Display names? I read and comprehended your post very clearly the first time. Yes it was an issue before but as I stated it was easily discernable to differentiate avatars/Avatar names. Point still stands if there's no risk/danger of identity theft/impersonation/fraud with the new display names system, why have the Lindens protected the use of "Linden"? As you have said they didn't protect it with group tags Thank you , goodnight. What we have here is a logical fallacy called irrelevant
  9. ColddFrixion , you keep mentioning the Group Title thing . Let's clear this up, the Group Title thing and any Titlers are EASILY discernable from the actual user name , whereas this new Display name feature isn't and by LL's design wishes would REPLACE the username if possible. SO PLEASE STOP comparing them, it's apples and oranges. That being said, it's still fact that the Lindens feel there could be impersonation/identity theft issues thusly they protected the Linden name , All most of us want is to have our registered usernames protected from being used as display names , which should be th
  10. People can change theis name and use the same name of other residents? Users can also use the same group title other residents use in their groups, hence wouldn't it be just as convenient to impersonate group and store owners or other staff? Would you say that's been an issue heretofore? The difference is you can change group titles whenever you want. You can only change Display Names once per week. To answer your question, they can't change the original name they picked when they created their account, which is your unique identifier.
  11. Personally, I wouldn't want to use the Linden namesake anyway. For that matter, the only time I've seen the Linden name used by anybody was one of the actual staff members. I never saw anybody impersonating a Linden in any form. But that's beside my point. This is what I am trying to say: However, I've known instances of "griefing" through the use of that display name trick where the person pulling off their little joke about ruined the victim's reputation there on the spot at her job. A pretty "upright", honest and straight forward business type of person and she was victimized by somebody

  13. I wasn't saying i wanted to be a linden. and i have seen one. here was a sever griefer problem and i about feel over at the L rep that showed up to fix it. It was A, not saying the but A, Philip Linden. and oddly that griefer vannished about 3 seconds laer and all his alts I didn't mean to imply that you, personally, wanted to impersonate a Linden. I was just saying for anyone who's wanted to try and impersonate one, the option's been available for years now and I've never really seen that title in anyone's group name heretofore. For that matter, I've never seen anyone use group titles to
  14. Good point Ando. If the "Lindens" forbid the use of their namesake... then we should also be able to do the same as a matter of personal choice. At least, with that choice we can reasonably guard our SL identity & reputations. If you really wanted to use the Linden title all you'd have to do is create a bogus group and give yourself the title of (whatever first name) Linden. I doubt it would fool all but inexperienced users however residents have had the option to use the Linden name in group titles for years now. Have you ever seen a single instance of someone successfully impers
  15. If you really think dowloading a newer version of the sl viewer is not a big issue well then your so wrong i asume your running sl without changing things in debug and prefrences and your screem position with the layout like building. It cost me about 30min everytime i change to a update and i dont whant to update every month i deleted library junk out of my inventory good for 1400+ items all crap and useless junk this is just a example why i delete that? well it cost more time to load the inventory! I deleted classic clouds because they are lagy as hell and footprint shadow etc etc etc.......
