Debauche Group

You will be added to the Debauche group. This is where Laura, Sev, and others will send important announcements about shows and outfits.

Read every Debauche group notice. If you can’t find something, go back through the Notices archives.

The show notecards contain lineups and outfit notecards for new routines. They will also say what to wear for arrival and when rehearsal is.

Sometimes, Laura and Sev will make mistakes and send out updated show notecards. Replace the old one with the new one.

Group Chat

The group chat is where Laura and Sev will invite dancers to come see new routines they have created during the week. Or you can ask if they need assistance with anything. They tend to use alts to ride movers for dance development, and this can be a heavy load on their systems. So, offering to take some of that load off of them is a nice thing to do.

It is also useful for checking in on others, being social, and asking about outfit notecards.

During a show, we’ll use a conference. But if you crash and log back in or close the conference by accident, use the Debauche chat to ask to be re-invited to the conference.

Group Tag

Wear your Debauche Star group tag during the show. Wear it with pride.

Missing group notices?

If you’re frustrated about missing group notices, you can have Second Life send offline messages to your account’s email address.

Perform the following steps:

  1. Open Preferences (Control-P).
  2. Click the Chat tab.
  3. Click the Notices top tab.
  4. Select the checkbox for Email me IMs when I’m offline.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Log in to secondlife.com.
  7. Click Account.
  8. Click Change Email Settings.
  9. Select the checkbox for I would like to receive offline IMs via Email.
  10. Click Save Changes.

Second Life will now send instant messages and group notices to your account’s email address when you’re offline.

If you want to use a different email address for Second Life, create a new address at your preferred email provider. Then perform the following steps:

  1. Log in to secondlife.com.
  2. Click Account.
  3. Click Change Email Settings.
  4. Enter a new email address in Enter your new email addresss.
  5. Repeat that new email address in Confirm your new email address.

If you keep forgetting to check that new address, just forward it to your personal email account. (I do that with r@debauche.dance)

@debauche.dance email addresses

This site also runs a mail server. It can host mailboxes and forwarding addresses.

If you would like a @debauche.dance email address, ask R. for one. And R. can set up forwarding for you,

For example, R. uses r@debauche.dance as an address. It automatically forwards everything to her main isfullofcrap@gmail.com account.

  1. Sign in at webmail.debauche.dance with your full email address and the password that R. gave you.
  2. Click Forwarders. (If you see a Horde or Roundcube interface with folders, click the CP icon in the left sidebar.)
  3. Click Add Forwarder.
  4. Enter a destination email address.
  5. Click Add Forwarder.

Is it private and secure? Technically, I could go into the administration panel and see forwarding addresses, but that’s a toss of a coin with sides of “None of my business” and “I really don’t care.” Way too busy for that kind of shit, and it’s dishonorable.

Forwarding a gmail account

(Stolen mercilessly from gmail’s documentation)

Let’s say that you have a separate gmail account for your avatar, but you keep forgetting to check your messages there.

You can forward messages from the gmail account to your personal account:

Perform the following steps:

  1. On your computer, open Gmail using the account you want to forward messages from. You can only forward messages for a single Gmail address, and not an email group or alias.
  2. In the top right, click Settings Settings.
  3. Click Settings.
  4. Click the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
  5. In the “Forwarding” section, click Add a forwarding address.
  6. Enter the email address you want to forward messages to.
  7. Click Next and then Proceed and then OK.
  8. A verification message will be sent to that address. Click the verification link in that message.
  9. Go back to the settings page for the Gmail account you want to forward messages from, and refresh your browser.
  10. Click the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
  11. In the “Forwarding” section, select Forward a copy of incoming mail to.
  12. Choose what you want to happen with the Gmail copy of your emails. We recommend Keep Gmail’s copy in the Inbox.
  13. At the bottom of the page, click Save Changes.

To stop forwarding, perform the following steps:

  1. On your computer, open Gmail using the account you want to stop forwarding messages from.
  2. In the top right, click Settings Settings.
  3. Click Settings.
  4. Click the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
  5. In the “Forwarding” section, click Disable forwarding.
  6. At the bottom, click Save Changes.
