Going out Staying in Judas's Blog


I will agree that a better way of being able to tell if someone actually has a question is a must. Jumping up and down or raising a hand only does so much. The self-made question app does sometimes help but because of the varying ways “to ask a question” I think a more official solution should be approached.

There's a question mark over my head!

During a class in AltSpace about holding events and meetings, they actually have a system that I tried to quickly mimic with the question app, where not only an icon is displayed over a user’s head (which I was able to quickly do), but a list of the users who have a question also populate in a master list (did not experiment with). This worked for both VR and desktop mode and I’m pretty sure working something out wouldn’t be too hard (minus the fact I have zero experience with the messaging server at the moment, so that isn’t helping matters).

This sort of thing has been brought up a few times during a few meetings (spotlight, sign, etc).

Not only that, but maybe zoning the entrance to minimize the sound from there to the outer area should be considered, maybe even bringing up a popup or a sign at the entrance zone saying “This is a meeting area. Be Respectful.” or something like that. The previous meeting was just a demonstration of disaster.


They need to decide if its a chat or a place to have questions answered.


I prefer the roundtable idea to piling up around the microphone in Zaru, but you absolutely have a point there - the Vive controller can get pretty heavy when it has to be hold up into the air user speech after user speech.

How about a talking stick?
Or - as tribute to Roundtable’s beautiful architecture - a talking ball? :purple_heart::8ball::sunglasses:
This could be passed from user to user, which would also prevent this akward back-to-pre-school feeling of having to compete for the teachers‘ (developers‘) attention in order to be allowed to talk.

Regarding the

it might be worthwhile to analyze why this didn‘t happen before we had all these talking rules (i.e. when the meetings where still in Maker with similar attendance numbers).
Maybe we had more respect towards each other because we were able to actually focus on listening to each other when we didn‘t constantly have to compete to get the word at all :thinking:


This in the middle of the round table could solve the issue:




:joy: …especially now as the roundtable itself is handled as a high security area teleporting everyone who dares to get to near to it to the shaming corner :purple_heart::x::sunglasses:


… and get attached such a hat:

( with an exception rule for Judas, since he kinda already have it in a natural way :wink: )


I was actually kinda surprised that they had Roundtable locked down until the stroke of the hour. Far as I understand it, this WAS supposed to be like the Open Meetings in SL, or like the Town Hall meetings of your local county government, where people can show up to learn about and discuss recent plans and decisions, and where the general residents would have an influence over those plans and decisions. I fear we may be moving away from that, at HiFi’s peril. 0o


Can you please email your concerns to somthing@highfidelity your ideas are valuable to us but allready on this secret road map you have heard tell of but havent seen.It does however contain everything you have ever sugested or even dreamed .
Tho i still cant understand for the life of me how the founders and creators of secondlife are so insecure in there first child they would rather look to vr chat for the blueprints on how to build vr.
Vr chat is garbage its success is down to that youtube guy and ugandan knuckles rather than anything original.
it will die on its arse once the users are asked to pay for anything


Ok the feature voting thing is up yay
But omg the garbage on it we need to get
Proper text chat not these half measure fixes
And a proper avatars system like second life or gta or all games not these overly complex external systems
People care how they look
With a few exceptions people are disappointed by HiFi avatars


Curious when high fidelity get the long promised and waiting custom keys and xbox controller setup The default is on the xbox controller for from logic.
