Bring back last names in SL update


On 19th July 2011 I blogged about a JIRA called Bring Back Last Name Options and since then there has been a huge SL community effort to try to get Linden Lab to bring it back. There’s been alot of feedback in comments in this JIRA, buzz on Plurk, Twitter and on SL resident blogs in the past month.

Current statistics

  • Vote (1254)
  • Watch (348)
  • Status: In Review

The bad news still is that Linden Lab has not not responded to this yet after a month. It would be nice if a Linden at the lab could at least give the SL community a update about this.

  1. Of the people who have voted to bring back lastnames, most (over 90%) already have a first and last name. Maybe this is not something that people with the newer one word names care enough about. Maybe is just a nick for them and they quite happy with display names that let them use symbols and non-english language characters to express their individuality or mood, culture even for non-english speakers..

  2. I wonder if Linden Lab will do something about it.

Life is a series of transitions. It’s not about where you are right now. It’s about which direction you’re going. Smile, and drink a frappuccino.
