| I need help or
support, who should I contact?|

||Can I be truly
anonymous when dating or using your HUD?|
||Yes, because the HUD
does not show member SL names, profiles, photos or keys.|
The only way to determine the SL name of the member you are interacting
with is if they choose to tell you.
By default a member's nickname is taken from the first name of their SL
user name, however, the nickname can be changed to anything you
like. To set your nickname simply touch the pink Preferences button and the Name option from the blue menu.
NOTE - The Partner-4-You HUD never reveals SL names and SL keys.
IMPORTANT - If your avatar uses just one name then your last name becomes Resident. In this case please don't use this single name as your nickname otherwise your Partner4You contacts will have a clue to your Second Life avatar's name..
