    Display Name missing from Chat Log

    AviNews, you were right! In my chat preferences somehow I'd managed to uncheck the option to view display names. I checked the box again. Then later when I went to my chat logs today everything was back to normal. Yaaaaay! Thanks for your totally helpful and totally non-snarky response. You're the best! <3

    Display Name missing from Chat Log

    My chat log used to show my display name with my username in parenthesis on each line like this: Shari (shaharazad.humphreys) But now it just shows my user name only: Shaharazad Humphreys No display name, no parenthesis I did not remove my display name...it still shows as Shari in my profile settings. Did I accidentally change some other setting? How can I change it back? Thanks, S

    Racism in Second Life?

    Fortunately, I've never experienced overt racism in SL. To me one of the most beautiful things about being in-world is that you can never tell up front who the person is behind an avatar. So you when you form a true friendship or fall in love with someone it's purely based on their spirit and personality. For example, once upon a long time ago when I fell I love in SL, it happened at a Halloween party where we were both wearing costumes. He had on a tiger costume and I had no idea what he looked like underneath. We laughed and danced and chatted and none of that mattered. Of course, you can be attracted to the physical appearance of someone's avatar, but it's still their personality that shines through to make you want to get to know them better. I have, however, experienced feelings of not being very welcome when inquiring to participate in certain private themed role play sims. No one was ever openly rude, but let's just say no one was going out of their way to be friendly either. In those cases, obviously it would be nice if everywhere was inclusive but if some people want to spend money to build a private fantasy sim that doesn't include me...well that's their personal choice...I'll spend my time and Lindens elsewhere.
  6. I was partnered once in SL and it was to a wonderful man. He became a vital part of my life, my best friend. Yet, in my experience as soon as we tried to bring our beautiful SL relationship into RL , it began to wilt until it was damaged beyond repair. The stress and pressure to meet each other's social, physical, and even financial expectations that don't really exist in a virtual space are immediately thrust upon you when desiring to meet in real life. An SL relationship can be like a fragile flower that is not meant for the harsh realities of the outside world. However, even though I lost my true SL love and have never found another, I can't say I wouldn't take a chance on sharing my private life with someone again. But it would certainly have to be an extraordinary individual.

    Need tips for an elderly overweight black woman avatar.

    Try the Ebody Curvy mesh body. They have a free version in-world in the store that has limited features, but should be fine for an alt. It has a very natural-looking, curvy, heavyset shape that you shouldn't have to edit much to get the look you desire in that photo.

    How can you tell if someone is male or female?

    I've never had an issue with it either. This may sound a little pie-in-the-sky, but honestly behind every avatar you meet in SL is a real person and you can literally feel the essence of that person if you take the time to get to know them. Once a basis of trust has been established you can also voice chat with them. I don't see why it should matter at all for strictly friendships. But I present myself as exactly who I am—a straight female—when it comes to dating relationships and I do desire someone who is also straightforward about their gender and preferences as well. However, due to the virtual nature of the game I suppose a situation could arise where you develop a long, meaningful relationship with someone who may not have been honest about who they are in RL. In a special circumstance like that, where I had truly come to care for that person, I suppose I'd have to ask myself...if it has never been an issue for us and I can't tell anyway...does it matter? For me I think it basically boils down to an honesty issue. I would always prefer someone to be up front and honest with me and then allow me to have a choice in deciding if I wish to pursue a relationship. Hope that helps!
  9. Hi, I'm looking for a Confident, Down-to-Earth, Interesting, straight male for fun companionship. Must be over age 30 and available to meet online one night each week. **My reasons for only wanting one night per week are: 1) I'm a busy professional in RL 2) I like scheduling my time, and 3) I think it can avoid a situation where either of us feels we're required to hang out with each other every time we happen to be logged in at the same time (when all you really wanted to do is rezz your newest gadget in a sandbox and play with it...know what I mean?...If you know what I mean, you're probably my type of guy :))) About Me: I use SL as a creative outlet, a way to relax my mind, and a means to exercise my imagination in unlimited ways. At the moment I spend most of my time in SL building, shopping, and going to live poetry/music/dancing events. But I'm open to try almost anything within reason. Except I don't want to join any type of RP or "family". But I do enjoy dressing up in themed attire and costumes to hang out on themed sims (so far I've done Victorian and Western themes before and loved both...I think I still have my horse saved in my inventory lol). If we hit it off long-term there's a possibility down the line I might want to have an SL baby with you. Why? I've been in SL a long time and it's the one thing I've been curious about but never tried. It's a big maybe for me though. Questions? Send me a private message here or IM me in-world (Shaharazad Humphreys) Kisses! Shari
