The story hud is responsible for rezzing your Character tag /notecard . (( the object that floats over your head that says either CD/OOC/ARMED))
Very often you have to re attach the hud in order to get the tag above your head. This is happens because you might have logged in at a non Hathian piece of land. Owner of the land does not allow rezzing etc etc plenty of reasons.
What i want to give as feedback is a refresh button that when you click the button your story had will attempt to attach the tag above your head there for you do not have to detach and attach your story hud again. Hope this helps!.
