  1. Better yet... bring back Last Names, but continue to allow use of Display Names. They (LL) could even include "Resident" as a permanent last name in the list, so you don't have to worry about people feeling obligated to remember your last name or to make any use of it beyond your Display Name. Also, there could be a much longer list that's easy to browse (instead of the different weird setups they had along the way).
  2. Welcome to SL new overlord! Reading your bio, it seems to me *as some others have pointed out) that you are an excellent fit for SL and it al looks very promising! So, once again, a very warm welcome from an old fogey (i hit 10 years in SL last month). All of that being said, and i'm not sure if you've been warned that this may re-surface, but... there's a topic and Jira that are dear to my heart, as well as many other SLers. The topic is about last names... how SL used to have a list to pick from (which, admittedly, could have been configured better), but now everybody gets a generic "Resident" as a last name, but can then just change their names to anything they want via Display Names. My view has always been that unique last names were a major part of the magic soup that made SL into the phenomenon it came to be. There is plenty to read about in the Jira, both in the description and in the multitude of comments on the topic. Please have a look and seriously consider bringing back last names. ( https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/SVC-7125? )
  3. Great job, Pooky!! This is a great, simple look into SL! Very organic feeling in presentation and flow, explaining a myriad of possibilities with an internationally spicy soundtrack. Really enjoyable to watch and makes me want to get back in there more often. It would make a great commercial in an advert campaign. Until after now...
  4. HotRod, is it possible that your preferences were reverted to Default settings? More specifically, the Bandwidth and Cache settings. I'm not sure if that could be the issue, but might be worth checking out, just to be sure. The only other things i can think of is the possibility that you may need to update drivers for your graphics card and/or router firmware. I would say try uninstalling Phoenix and Firestorm, since that's the only change you made (unless you've installed anything else that's not SL related?), but i doubt that would make a difference either. Again though, it could be worth seeing if it helps to revert any changes made between 2 weeks ago and now. Lastly, if you haven't contacted support, it couldn't hurt to see if they could offer any help.
  5. That's SO awesome!! Thanks for posting it here, i love what you ended up creating. I like how you've employed different stules when creating these paintings. And they're not digital at all? Mine looks like some Photoshop style effects, but could also be done with traditional media. How's the project going overall? Do you still need the word to be spread or have you collected enough avatar images at this point?

    Well, i'm a little late in replying to the two previous comments, but i wanted to say thanks for noticing! :) I think it helps a lot, but only on this page. Perhaps there should be a note somewhere in Account Summary or in the Update Card area? i've always wanted to be able to see at least the last 4 digits, just to make sure my most recent credit card is the one used. Would that create a security issue as well? Or is it possible that method could be employed as a comfortable middle road?
  7. HotRod, i would suggest looking over the release notes. More specificlaly, these two points: Crash & Performance Fixes SH-1618[c] [PUBLIC_JIRA_USERS] Lighting and shadows crash ATI macs DNS Error May Prevent Login for Mac OSX EXP-687[c] Second Life viewer will not work on my laptop - A possible workaround is to add the free Google DNS servers to your network configuration, as described below. Open 'System Preferences' -> 'Network' -> 'Advanced...' -> 'DNS' Click "+" and type Click "+" and type Close 'System Preferences' Restart Second Life The first one is supposed to be fixed, but may be worth checking out to see if it makes a difference. While the second one is under Known Issues and may be the issue you are experiencing. I hope this has helped!

    Would it be possible to have the "view billing information" specify that you can't actually view some of the information? For instance, if i want to check if i'm using the right credit card before the next time i get charged, it's not possible. All i can see is what type of card, no information about the account number. In order to make sure, the only choice is to delete the information first and enter the one i knew was up to date. I know i made a Jira once for it, but i thought it should be mentioned here since the statement above made me think it showed more information now. But a lot of great information here otherwise! *waves* Until after now...
  9. This sounds like a wonderful project, Danny! I was inspired by what i read and am about to drop off my notecard, but realized there's some more information people could use in addition to what you have listed above. When you request "Full Name" is that Real Life or Second Life? Or both? We are told where to go to drop off the notecard, but not which object to drop the notecard in to. I'm guessing it's "Danny's Mail Box", so that's where i'm about to drop my notecard. I have also included one snapshot for each style that is accepted, in order to give the artist a better look at my avatar, as well as giving the artist choices as to which they would rather work with. Oh yeah! One last thing... did you want the notecards to be titled anything in particular? Mine is "Avatar Project - Cybin Monde" as it seemed fitting. Thanks again!
  10. It's excellent to see this thread here, thank you Blondin! (/me waves emphatically, "Miss you guys!") Of course i missed the Nova Albion parade again. It would seem weird for me to actually show up at this point! But Happy Birthday, NA!!! It's a great city with lots to see and do. As far as i know, it's also safer these days (as i believe the Mole People have moved on from our waterways and subsystems). Don't forget, just across from Mari's place is my awesome build! A room with four chairs and a tree! With IDM music streaming and um... a nice view. Hurry though! I may decide to change it someday, which could be as soon as 2015!!! Also, a fond hello to all my fellow Nova Albion residents! Edit - Also, to the city itself, i say "Don't worry, you'll always be a youngster to me!"
  11. Ah, those days of yore when everything was new and the world was small. I joined SL back in January of 2004 and remember my first few hours were spent a couple steps away from the spot where i first rezzed. I had stepped closer to the Appearance board there in the beginning of the old Orientation Island (where the parrot would give you L$50 or something like that, just for talking to him) and then stayed there for a few hours while i worked on my appearance. I've slimmed down a tiny bit since then, but other than that my sliders and colors have remained the same. Originally i changed out of the normal clothes and wore a dirt texture instead. Over the next couple months i worked on creating my own clothes and settled on a look about a couple months into my SLife, which also hasn't changed in these past 7 seven years. Other attributes i changed early on were to make my own face tattoo and the particle sparkly thing on my forehead. But this is about the first day, so i'll get back to that. After spending all that time creating my look, i patiently made my way through the tutorial, then TPd over to the mainland and the boardwalk Welcome Area that had balloon rides and a couple motorcycles sitting there. I think it wasn't long before i found myself at the Luna Mall where i found (and bought) a pair of particle wings that i still use sometimes. I don't remember much else, but it sure has been quite a ride since that first day!!

The "View Article Reactions" links don't work for all blogs, at least since we switched to Lithium. Either the URL is pointing improperly or there isn't any reaction area on Technorati, or both, which seems to be the case i'm seeing. The good news is, i just contacted Live Chat a few minutes ago to let them know what's going on with those. They said they'll report it and try to get them all fixed for us.
  13. Wow! That's about 3 things that were addressed within the space of these comments! Smilies were formatted better (Thank you!), an Off Topic forum was created (many kudos for that one) and new RSS feeds were added. Great work LL! For those looking for Status Updates, Tickets or Live Chat links, try the help/Contact Support sections. The Status Updates window is on the front page of the Help section, while the Ticket and Live Chat options are clickable text links on the Contact Support page. So, while they do exist, they could be better integrated into the whole. For instance, having Tickets and Live Chat as links in the Help drop-down menu, with Live Chat leading to a page about Premium Accounts if you have Basic and would like to use Live Chat. Status Updates should also have a spot on the right hand side of the Blogs front page, perhaps between the Blogs and Announcements panels?

I haven't checked yet, so i'm not sure if that's possible. But if so, then it seems you could put a store logo or something in the small rectangle. Please feel free to correct me if i'm wrong on this. It's possible, the problem there is that the text flows over the background, forcing you to work around it. As you can see in some of the other posts in this thread, people have done that. The results are certainly less than ideal, but if that ends up being the ONLY option, it is an option at least. My request however is to fix the actual issue, rather than developing workarounds. Cybin Monde wrote: I think i like it overall though. It seems like a more convenient set-up, with a cleaner presentation. This, I definitely agree with.Cleaner, easier to navigate, more professional, and a bit more pleasant to work with. And I really feel like I've got a bazillion settings and options. We can even use limited css markup and html in out signatures. (tables, spans, even divs are allowed, and the system is smart enough to fix errors, auto-close tags, and limit css that might break the page display. And we also seem to have a lot more space in terms of html in the signature, than we ever did, so we can load up on hyperlinks and link up our other sites, blogs, and marketplace listings, as desired. I do wish that the signature space were a bit taller.. at least tall enough for the popular Snapzilla snapshot-signatures. Ahh... i like that the "Quote" button includes the text quoted in the original text. Which reminds me (the smiley face, that is), i also dig how you can choose between a few different types of smilies (it would be cool to see this expanded with more options!). So, yes, i can totally get on board with having more options for the pictures. I see what you mean with the text being an issue. I'll take back my original point on this, as i don't think it's a great work-around either, now that you mention it. Speaking of which, i have to figure out how to show that. On the options thing, i heartily agree. It does feel like we have a ton of options that we can set, not to mention many of them are settings the community either has wanted or would have wanted. Of course, there are more options people would like to see.. but, it's a positive start. Who knows, maybe they'll even increase the vertical sig space? ...maybe. ETA: Got it!
  15. I agree with several others that there could be some improvements; however, for the avatar pictures... i saw that you can change your packground, could you not then use a picture of yourself there? I haven't checked yet, so i'm not sure if that's possible. But if so, then it seems you could put a store logo or something in the small rectangle. Please feel free to correct me if i'm wrong on this. Having our Rez Day as the "Joined" date makes more sense to me, as well. If both could be displayed, or a choice with a distinction of which it was, that would be even better. I think i like it overall though. It seems like a more convenient set-up, with a cleaner presentation. For instance, i liked the way the blogs showed up the old way, previews with text from the post and sometimes a picture.. when i saw the way they are now, as just a list of headlines, i wasn't sure if i liked it at all. After a couple minutes though, i started appreciating how easy it was to see what was up in different departments and have a quick rundown of what's the latest and greatest. So, kudos... as long as the dents are dinged out, i like it here. ETA: Oh yeah! I forgot to mention... whoever has mentioned it is right, we definitely need some sort of general chatter area. It has already started to tease with spilling over and spreading out among all the available forii. I know it may not be the prettiest sight all of the time, but it serves a purpose and is a needed function of any successful forum.
