Template talk:User Second Life Name

I'm wondering whether or not this should be placed on pages about people, like this.

Firstly, I don't think the wording of the template right now is appropriate for that, as it's a userbox and so the text refers to a user. It could probably be changed to "this person".

My other concern is that we need to be careful about adding it to the pages about other people when they might not want their Second Lives to be public - it could be viewed as personal information, perhaps even more than their real name. Or it might not. I suspect this depends on the person. --GreenReaper(talk) 22:04, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

I added it cos A he's a friend and B he already had his SL username included in the text.
I think those are the basis we'll have to rely on. If you know it's going to be fine with them, it's not a problem. The thing I want to avoid is others maliciously "outing" those who don't want to be known. Of course, hopefully they aren't bothered enough to edit WikiFur, but you never know . . . --GreenReaper(talk) 08:37, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

Proposed change[edit]

I suggest changing the wording in this template to "This user has a Second Life account with the name Bob". This gets rid of the awkward usage of their. It also leaves open the possibility that someone has more than one account. -- Sine 23:41, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

-- I have changed it because I also think that the "Their" is irritating. "Their" would mean, that a group of persons owns 1 account, which is never true. Dracenmarx 20:24, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Proposed Change or Additon[edit]

Adding a internal link option for the name section, as people are making a page for there avatars now adays. --Lokiwuff 06:23, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

How about just {{User Second Life Name|[[Article name]]}} ? --EarthFurst 00:06, 4 January 2011 (UTC)
