Can I Purchase a Really Big House?
Of course (if you are one of those Rich, Upscale type people). Just go to "Update" and check out the interiors and exteriors now available. The Really Big ones will cost you $2,000. You can also upgrade later when you can afford this life style.
How Do I Use the Text-to-Voice Feature?
This is really cool ! It first became available at the end of March. This feature allows you to hear (through your computer speaker if you have one) the text that you or others enter in the Chat boxes. You can also pick from a variety of different voice modes from female to male to old to young.

In order to activate you will go to the "Options" tab next to the Chat box and select "Voice". You will then choose a voice mode or accept the default. Make sure the "Enable" button is checked, then Click OK. For some a short download of the updated plug in may be required.

There may be some problems. You may have to change the way you type because it may not recognize your words and it will then spell out the letters. There presently are no voice inflections so questions sound the same as statements. In a crowded place such as the Plaza you may want to Right Click on some people's names and Click "Ignore" in order to hold down the noise. Some times you may get an error message that says the feature cannot be used. Just do a screen Reload or Refresh and it may begin to work again. Also it will become ever more important that we watch our language in the Plaza and try to keep it clean and civil.

How Do I Solve Load/Display Problems With My Inbox/Message Board/Information ?
Go to your "Update" button and Click "Information". Then Click the "Reset" button. From this point on you will have to be careful if you have used HTML code to construct your Info/Message/Inbox pages. Resetting any of the three pages will delete your code and revert to default, so you may have to reconstruct. The first "Reset" button will default the "Information" Board. The second and third the "Message" Board, and the last two the "Inbox" Board. Although this may cause you some additional work it is preferable to having to move to a new house.
