Agenda

  1. What prevents lowering the minimum size limit for avatars? Residents have been calling for this since day 1, so my recent Jira on "it's time for an end to tiny folding" is just the latest in a long line of requests. What's so hard about changing one number?
  2. M took a leaf out of Philip's book recently and blogged a "vision", focusing mainly on better quality visuals. To that end, I suggest the following core enhancement for avatars, which would also happen to reduce the load server-side: "new Hair prim type". This could quite easily reduce most hair objects to a single prim or at most a few, it would improve appearance immensely because hair would consist of filaments instead of blocky prims, and the download requirement would be miniscule compared to large numbers of prims. How does this kind of avatar enhancement grab you? Any further suggestions to improve on it?
