Display Names

On a quick trip to Second Life's Beta Grid with the Project Viewer I ran into my friend Zyx Flux and we played with Display Names (read more here) as this picture shows. And you can see that she plans on joining the "Spartucus" in-world meme (read more here) when the feature is available. By default, group tags are off for some unknown reason, as are User Names. If you want to be sure who you are dealing with, head over to Preferences, as shown, or simply over your pointer over someone to see their "proper" name, displayed as first.last to remind us of our 80's computing heritage. Profiles will show both names, as well. Of special note, any change you make sticks for two weeks minimum, so no setting "Ima Trollop" for just a night. No idea when this will be released, but you can check out the official Wiki information here. Click the image for a larger view.
