Add Rooms to Your Group's Whirled

Next you'll want to include rooms in your Whirled! You can click on the name of a room while viewing your rooms or you can click on the Room icon Icon-room control.png in the control bar and select the Icon-room comment.png Comment or rate option.

You can only add rooms that you own or that belong to a group that you manage. Rooms can be marked by only one Whirled.

Use the dropdown menu to select your group's name and then click on the "Mark" button.
The room will then be marked as part of your group's Whirled.

Mark Items to Allow Them in Your Group's Whirled

You can mark all types of items to allow their use in your Whirled.

You can browse items in the shop or in your stuff to allow their used in your group's Whirled. This includes all item types: avatars, furniture, backdrops, toys, pets, launchers, images, music and videos. Use the dropdown menu to select your group's name and then click on the "Mark" button. Marking a shop listing will mark all copies of the item that have been purchased through that listing as well as all future copies purchased through that listing. It will not mark the creator's original copy. Likewise, marking the uploaded original of an item will only mark that copy of the item. It will not automatically mark a shop listing of that item.

When a player is in your group's Whirled, their shop and stuff views will be limited to items that have been marked for your group's Whirled.

For group managers, in order to be able to mark items from the full shop catalog and stuff inventory, there is a small X in the header logo so that you can exit the Whirled and return to the default Whirled. If you are marking items in your stuff, this will not universally mark the items, to do that you need to mark the items while viewing them in the shop. For items that you have listed as hidden or were limited editions, view it in your inventory and use the "View in Shop" link to universally mark that item.
