Summary0007131: Avatar names shows with @grid:port even on login to home grid
DescriptionI have begun seeing the grid name after the avatar name label when logging in to a home grid (seen on OSGrid and Openvue grid) rather than just when the avatar is on a foreign grid via the hypergrid. The @grid:port does not disappear even after a teleport between regions on the home grid.

I wonder if some of the recent changes to force the update of the avatar name on HG TP may be causing this?

I will try to spot the circumstances under which this occurs and whether I left the avatar logged in to the foreign grid before this happens on next home grid relog or not.

AiAustin, the patch you're referring to deals with this problem, but it only does anything when you Hypergrid teleport, not during an initial login. During an initial login, your avatar name is probably cached from whatever the viewer had last seen. E.g., if you were last in a foreign grid, then the viewer may have cached your "foreign" name, and that's what you're seeing. Try clearing the viewer cache and logging-in again; does that fix your avatar name?

You are right, the viewer cache clearing made the avatar name appear normal again. I wonder if this problem could be addressed by doing whatever you fixed on a HG teleport once on viewer login too to prevent this sort of thing?

Clearing the cache when we have several avatars and some with very large inventories is a bit of a pain.

The problem is that the trick that fixes the avatar name is visible to the user, because we have to change his group name to "(Loading)" for 5 seconds. It's undesirable to do this on every login, since most of the time it's not needed.

Yes... understood... that would be annoying for the majority of cases.
