All you do is literally make a second Second Life account, then it will be considered an "alt" to other users, because usually people who know what they're doing won't look like a noob longer than a day when making that new account.  Does that make sense?

Hi Jackie,

You create an alt the same way you created Jackie. An "alt" is just an "alternate account". Snugs McMasters is my alt, my conscience, and a royal pain in the neck. You are allowed to have up to five accounts on the same e-mail address, but I'm sure people have done more.

There are practical reasons for having alts. Groups must have two members, and unless you want to risk losing a group if everybody else leaves it, or risk giving control to a another person, I'd recommend enlisting an alt to keep the group above the two person minimum and keep control to yourself. It's also handy to have an alt when you want to test or align couple's poses in something you're creating. Alts also allow you to enter SL unperturbed when you want to concentrate on building.

You can give your alt edit rights on your things, but inventory transfers are subject to the same limitations as for anyone else. You cannot transfer no-trans items and if you transfer a no-copy item, you lose it from your inventory.

So, go create an alt!
