What are they?
Autoresponses allow your viewer to automatically respond to incoming chats. This is great for letting people know you’re on stage or unavailable.
To set the text for Autoresponses, perform the following steps:
- Open Preferences (Control-P).
- Click the Privacy tab.
- Click the Autoresponse 1 top tab.
This is where you can write the responses for various conditions:
- When you are in Unavailable mode. (Do not select this during a show. It will disable popups for the conference chat. That is bad.)
- To everyone who chats you.
- To non-friends who chat you.
- When you are in Away mode. (You can enable and disable this with the checkbox.)
- To Muted/Blocked avatars. (You can enable and disable this with the checkbox.)
You can click the Autoresponse 2 top tab for more options:
- When someone offers or asks for a teleport and you have Reject teleport offers and requests active.
- Select the Don’t reject teleport offers checkbox to allow friends to request and send teleport offers. (This is a good idea. It lets the rest of the group teleport you backstage.)
- When someone offers you a friend request and you have Reject all friendship requests active.
You can also select an item to send along with autoresponses, such as a notecard about the show, an autographed texture/photo, a landmark to the show, or a moose head.
So, how do you activate these?
- In the menu bar, click Comm.
- Then click Online Status.
- Finally, click the statuses you want to set. (Do not select Unavailable during a show. It will disable popups for the conference chat. That is bad.)
- When you reopen Online Status in the menu bar, that menu item will have a checkmark next to it.
For example, if you want to activate Autoresponses for non-friends, click that menu item.
Now, Firestorm will respond to all non-friends who IM you with the text you set in the Preferences >> Privacy tab.
Allegedly, you can set up a shortcut toggle button in Quick Preferences, But I can’t get it to work, sorry.
