  1. Hi All, I'd like to share an issue I have been having - which may have been for a long time but never noticed until recently - I have already contacted support regarding this and have yielded no answers as all the suggestions the support specialist has suggested do not work. So I am posting this on the forums to see if someone has suggestions or has experienced a similar issue. I may share this on a few of the other sections here on the forums as I am unsure where to post this. I have been a premium member for almost two years. And I have always had a first and last name because my account was created before last names were switched to Resident. I had not contemplated a name change until recently as I now want my first name in-world avatar's name to match my SL Facebook name. My avatar's first name in world is actually the word "No" ( please don't ask, I was young and dumb when I first created my account, hehe ). Sometimes people have trouble finding my avatar name in search inworld, and it gets confusing, so I figured I would toy with the idea of changing that first name. Anyway, each time I click on the "Change Name" tab in the drop-down menu, as shown below: I receive the error page shown below. I have displayed the url and the actual page that shows up. As you can see in the top right corner is says "Login", However, I am already logged into the home page/dashboard. Even when I click that "Login" button, I get popped back to the home page/ dashboard and it automatically appears as if I am logged in again to the dash board. The support specialist that was helping me suggested I log out and log back in and try again - I have done that - but, I am still getting this server error page. Has anyone experienced this? How have you been able to resolve this issue? Does the change name feature only work for some premium users and not all? My current membership is the Premium - Annual Membership. Thank you for your help and any suggestions.
  2. I am rather disappointed in this round's selection of limited last names. This is October! There is only a few good ones on there. Some that would have been better would have been: •Spooky •Spoopy •Moon •Witchy •Mortem •Scary Lots more as well. What is your opinion of this? I know we have the form that allows people to suggest last names, but it isn't advertised well enough. I didn't know about it until this round of last names.
  3. We have been very pleased to see the response to our limited edition last names. We hope to do a lot more of them in the future. Today some of the older last name options were removed and the following new ones were added: Vanlager Wainwright Tater Skydancer Primless Vermilion Morningstar Here is the full list of current last names available until mid-October: We will continue to make additional updates to the available last name pool, so if these options aren’t for you, stay tuned for future updates. You can also suggest your favorite name on our suggestion form, some of the new names were chosen from there! Look out for Halloween-themed limited edition last names in mid-October!

  4. To celebrate Mother’s Day and all the mothers in the Second Life community, we are releasing new limited edition last names today, only available until May 10th: Mama Matriarch Mum These names are seasonal and may come back around this time next year, for a limited time. We will continue to make additional updates to the available last name pool, so if these options aren’t for you, stay tuned for future updates. For more information about the costs and how-tos involved in name changes, read the Changing your username FAQ. Click to change your name now!
  5. In appreciation of our Anthro/Furry community in Second Life, we are releasing two new limited edition last names today, only available until April 8th: UwU OwO We will continue to make additional updates to the available last name pool, so if these options aren’t for you, stay tuned for future updates. For more information about the costs and how-tos involved in name changes, read the Changing your username FAQ. Click to change your name now!
  6. We have been very pleased to see the response to the return of last names back in April of 2020. Much as we did with the original legacy surnames, we plan to continually update and change the last names that are available for selection. Now that Uplift is complete, we anticipate that the rotation of available options will happen more often. Today some of the older last name options were removed and the following new ones were added: Orlando Incognito Nebula Knickers Aviator Bunny Blackwood Darkheart Amore Suki Venus Evergarden Caboose Dakota Absinthe We will continue to make additional updates to the available last name pool, so if these options aren’t for you, stay tuned for future updates. For more information about the costs and how-tos involved in name changes, read the Changing your username FAQ.
  7. Hi. I wasn't sure where to put this, so I thought this was the best way. I had just seen the blog post about purchasing last names. How does one go about it; what is the purchase price; can they be gifted? Thank you for your time and consideration. Amza Hydraconis
  8. As we announced last week, ten last names have officially been retired and are no longer available for purchase. Today, we are pleased to announce the names replacing them, available as an option for purchase now: Vortex Fluffpaw Sassypants Amethyst Bloodrose Aurelia Starlight Additionally, three names are being made available for purchase in honor of Second Life’s 17th Birthday theme: Wayfarer Rover Wanderer These three names will be retired in the next round of updates, so if you’re interested, be sure to grab them while they’re available! We will continue to make additional updates to the available last name pool, so if these options aren’t for you, stay tuned for future updates.
  9. We have been very pleased to see the response to the return of last names back in April. The response thus far has been mostly positive, with some residents opting to wait for names that feel more personal to them. Much as we did with the original legacy surnames, we plan to update and change the available last names regularly. That way, a good variety of first and last name combinations are available at any given moment. We are taking a number of factors into consideration on making the decision about when to change up the names, most importantly how popular, or unpopular, a name is. Today, we are announcing the retirement of some of the last names from the first round. Effective Thursday, June 25 the following names will no longer be available for purchase: Alpaca Covfefe Damballar Float Jazzhands Mainsail Nimble Piggins Plumday Yeetly All residents that have purchased name changes using these last names will retain ownership of the name, but no more additional purchases of these names will be available. If you wish to claim one of these last names for yourself, now is your last chance! Be sure to do so no later than Wednesday, June 24th, as the names will no longer be available for purchase. Simultaneously, ten new last name options will be made available for purchase. These new names will be announced upon release, so stay tuned!
  10. Back by popular demand! After being gone for almost a decade, last names in Second Life are now available once again! THE HISTORY OF LAST NAMES So, what’s the big deal you say? Well, a bit of context might be helpful for newcomers and those who created an account at any time in the past decade or so. Back in the day, Second Life Residents were given the option at registration of selecting from a variety of pre-determined “last name” options. The use of shared “last names” helped build community among Residents who found instant kinship and bonding amidst these newfound virtual family ties shared with strangers of the same lineage. Similar to the commodity of dot-com domains, some “last names” held a special status in the community. Some were extremely rare and, in some cases, there were perceived attributes and reputations associated with certain last name offerings. To make sense of it all, there was even a dedicated website put together by a third party to track the history and availability status of last names (which tended to rotate in and out of circulation quite quickly). It all came to an end in 2010 when Linden Lab announced that “last names” would no longer be available amidst the roll-out of “display names,” which allow Residents the opportunity to use their real name, nickname, role-play name or social identity in Second Life. While display names do allow for a great deal of flexibility and freedom in expression, some Residents mourned the loss of the common shared “last name” options that helped people across the globe bond together across the metaverse. For those who are curious to learn even more about the sordid history of “last names,” there is an interesting thread that goes into more detail about “the very real panic over virtual surnames” on reddit. THE RETURN OF LAST NAMES Given the ongoing interest in “last names” among our community, we’ve reinstated “last names” effective today as a new option for Second Life Premium Members. If you have a Premium account, you will be able to visit https://secondlife.com/my/account to change your first, last or both names. In the true spirit of the original “last names” option last seen in 2010, participating Residents will once again be able to choose from a rotating list of available last names. Some names may only be available for a limited time, so if you see one you like then you might want to claim it quickly! Already changed your name and want to go back to one of your old names? You can do that too! After you have changed your name once, you will see a list of your previous names below the list of available last names. Please note that “display names” are still available at no charge to everyone. However, “last names” is a new optional feature just for Premium members and a separate $39.99 fee applies when you change any part of your account name. In order to ensure your name changes proceed smoothly, please make sure you are logged out of the viewer before changing your name. There may be a delay of 24-48 hours for your new name to show across all services in Second Life. We know that many of you may have further questions about how this all works and that’s why we’ve put together a dedicated FAQ to help explain things in even more depth. This is the list of current available last names (as of April 13th, 2020).
  11. Recently there was a long and heated thread that started out as a query on what folks would like for Marketplace changes and turned fairly nasty with most folks including the OP giving up on the thread. There was some good info in there amidst all the bickering. Alas. My issue was that there were too many suppositions. Well thanks to Inara Pey and THIS ARTICLE there are some actual updates including what folks can do to be heard by The Lab should that be the intent. There is also information on last names. Note these are CONSIDERATIONS by The Lab and are not etched in stone. Still, in my mind, much better info than ideas from residents with no official documentation behind them.
