As I learn my way around this new forum I am discovering odd little bits here and there.
Did you know there is an Second Life Avatar Vanity thread? It started in early 2011 and is 305 pages long today. It is an interesting collection of avatar pictures over the years.
Looking at the thread you’ll find the forum only allows you to jump ahead 6 pages at a time. To jump more you have to tweak the URL. Look for or add the text: /?page=300 to jump to page 300 – Oct 2014 or change the page number to whatever.
You can kinda guesstimate the year knowing it starts in 2011 and runs to July 2015 on page 305. People will be adding to it now that the new forum has exposed it anew. There are no 2016 images. But a new 2017 image has been added. I expect more.
I do notice that ALM makes what I consider a significant difference in the appearance of the avatars. With ALM off, they look a bit flat and old style. With Ambient Occlusion disabled it is worse.
Walking Dead Posts
No… not the zombie world Walking Dead show… The new forum has resurrected old… really old… threads. It seems they pulled the content from the archive into this new forum. The previous to last forum was moved into an archive. Now it looks to me like all three generations of forums have their content combined.
The default sort is Recently Updated. I am not sure why so many old posts appear on the page when sorted by Recently Updated. But, once seen an updated… they are there until you read them or mark them read.
You have the choice of; Recently Updated, Last Reply, Title, Start Date, Most Viewed, Most Replies, and Custom.
Of course, with these sorts you can see what you want.
In the Custom sort, you get more choices; Name of Last Poster and Name of Topic Starter. There are three other criteria you can add. So, finding things should be easy.
SL in Borderless Window
There are some interesting technical posts that now show in the forum. One is about running SL in a borderless window. Apparently, it is a thing for those running two screens. See: SL in Borderless Window.
You can discuss the feature in the forum: Check out the Place Pages Beta!
