100px Darn! I got Ruthed!


When an avatar is "Ruthed" it means that the person's apperance had a problem updating, and thus has temporarly reverted to the default female shape ("Ruth".) This happens when the client (or a libsl application) has severe packet loss or has not sent a copy of their appearance settings to the simulator.
