I post nowadays everything in notepad. as I can then read the posts more clearer and then react on them without overlooking essential details. For normal regular chat it does not matter though for longer posts it does.

When a posts is cut off and the remains are lost, it just sucks and so does the absense of a spellingcheck or similar thing. I just stick with Phoenix till the end.

Meh, I wish it gave me the ability to type faster.
I try to edit my own spelling because I have not scene a spell-check function that keeps grammar correct. So I here watt all are saying about correct spelling.

Hmmm, seems to me that some people (some of which accuse others of not reading) sometimes react rather badly to irony/teasing. At least, when it involves PARA. Strange to see how people always get so worked up about anything having to do with that. :ohgawd:

Anyways, as I already said, people should RP the way they want to. Kaitlin's example is fine, but... I and most of those I tend to RP with would be inclined to distribute those 2 posts over more than 2 posts. What you say about 1 on 1 RP makes perfect sense, of course. But para in general wasn't really my point, in so far as I had any.

Fact is that you can RP very well, even with the loss of this phoenix feature. Lots of people RP-ed very well before the feature existed. That doesn't mean that it is a good thing that this feature is removed. In fact, it is a pitty. As someone said, there are other reasons for wanting to paste longer chunks of stuff as well, besides para-RP. I just can't see it as an RP-killer.

I took yours comments for the mild ribbing that it seemed to be which is why I only gave Claude the :fryingpan:
I honestly vary in my style and its is certainly not always Para but when I get together with players who usually have a base in text gor the sky is the limit on post size. With the visual of SL there is much that no longer needs to be described but often I'm in my own head rather than taking in the scenery.

How do you layer tattoos?

You simply choose "ADD" instead of "WEAR" - it will attach the second and third and however many layers on top of the ones already attached.

If there is a limit to it, I haven't reached it yet but I think the most layers I used for an avatar were 7.

Interesting. I thought tattoos were like clothing instead of attachments. Good tip... thanks.

Ok so you just reminded me of one of the reasons I love this viewer. :heart:

Spell check please and I'm a happy woman. :beg:

Well they are. And unless you are on a SL 2(!)based viewer, you won't be able to "ADD" clothing pieces or tattoo layers for that matter.

Yeah what Victor said. Basically "add" is now the function to stack layers whether they be clothing layers or prims.
