Just sad.

I paid to change 15 account names, no regrets. of course my real life income is around 2500 a week, so just chump change for me.


Pinkie Held -- you are right, you are a boasting chump.

As a blogger and a high demand fashionista, a girl must do everything possible to keep up her important virtual image.

I've used my weekly beauty parlor budget to pay for my new name change since my salon has been closed due to the pandemic. When my Social Security comes at the first of the month, I'm going to do my alt.


" That's like $160 to be Freddie Mercury in Second Life for just a year!"

Where, anywhere does it say you have to pay for premium for a year!?

" If you have a Premium account, you will be able to visit https://secondlife.com/my/account to change your first, last or both names"

So, from my account the upgrade option for one MONTH is USD 14.39 then the fee for changing my name. Then I can cancel my membership and let it expire.

I've already checked the FAQ, that is entirely within the rules.

Good catch, thanks, I'll correct!

Fed Up
