So, I never even know we could, but apparently you can search for avatars right in the chat.

Type /w (insert random search string here) and then press the tab key

It will show a list of all avatars found using that search string.

The problem:

I could not find myself.
It appears that there is another Forgo avatar in player list that it sees 1st, so I never get found.

I imagine I am not the only one, seeing as MA will allow anyone to assume the identity of anyone else in-game.

So bug report it is , not sure what else to do with it but let people know, there are probably avatars blocking search for you too.

Oh interesting :eek:

Is basically /w = whisper.

Hmm it seems to only work if the person is visible on playerregister.

Edit: Same bug as you, can't find myself apparently there's a second Sub-Zero here.:scratch2:
I'm guessing its because you ain't supposed to whisper yourself a message. :laugh:
