Isn't your alt on your Friends list?  Don't you have a calling card for her in your inventory?  Either way, you should be able to connect with her very easily.

Um... your alt is a resident.  We all are.

BTW - You are not talking to LL here.

 

Most people Friend their alts when they create them -- to make communication between them easier.

 

As to the Search issue -- many people have been having issues.  Use Firestorm, bring up the search window and then instead of using the Websearch tab at the top, click to the People tab.  That will use the legacy search and that seems to be working just fine for everyone.

Maybe they blocked you.

Actually, that is a good thing to check.  It sounds kind of weird, but it's not uncommon for people to accidentally block themselves.  It's certainly easy enough to accidentally block anyone if you're not paying attention.

Blocking doesn't seem to impact the Search at all.  I searched for one of my alts and found her.  Logged her in and had her block me.  Searched for her again - same session and new session -- and still found her.

 

However, they have actually managed to break the Web People search in a really major way.  Out of my 17 accounts, I can only find 3 --- and that includes NOT being able to find myself.

I can successfully find everyone via the old Legacy People search.

Yep, it's been like that for at least a month if not longer.

I didn't realize it was so bad.  Thought it was just the random name here and there that wasn't getting picked up.

*sigh*

Basically, almost no one I search there will show up.  If I do an ALL search with the name, a group might come up where they show as owner.  If I click the name there, only then will I see their profile.  It's bad.

You don't have to talk to your alt to send them $L.  In fact, you don't even need to have both accounts logged in.  Just call up their profile, click the Pay icon, and send them the money.

They apparently can't pull up the profile from search which is the problem.  Search doesn't always show people even when you know they aren't hidden.  It's been an issue for me for awhile now.

If the alt is not a friend and you don't have a calling card for the alt, then log both avatars into the same location and Friend the alt or give calling cards.  Problem solved for all future communications.

Log in your alt along with your main, at the same time, in the same place and friend each other.  No one here can do anything about search not working as it's been a problem for months.  Yell at support.  File a ticket.   

And what do you even mean by they don't come up on your notecards?  If they are friends, they would be on your friend list already and their calling card would be in the calling card file.

This is because search is broken and searches on direct names are returning huge long lists where you can't possibly scroll through them.

This is a good example of the problem @Rowan

So you have to use the script "name2key" to find the key of your alt, then paste that into chat. 

Here's a free version of it.

If you don't know how to copy and use scripts, IM me inworld and I will help you.

UPDATE: Once again, I'm finding (as in the other thread) that if you plug keys into this phrase, you get a seemingly clickable link in chat, but then it does not work:
