This window is used in contexts where you need to select a resident - for example:
The Avatar Picker window has three tabs, which allow you to search for people in different ways.
Type the partial or full name of the Resident you wish to choose (a search query must be at least three characters), then click Go to search. A list of top possible matches appears below the search field.
You can enter a partial match for first or last name. For example, if you enter “J Lin”, all results include a first name beginning with “J” and a last name beginning with “Lin”, such as “Jeremy Linden” and “Jon Linden”.
Use this if the Resident you wish to choose is already on your Friends list.
If you've recently added a friend but they aren't showing up here, click the refresh button
Use this if the Resident you wish to choose is nearby.
Click the refresh button if Residents who have just entered your chosen range aren't showing up as expected. Changing the range also refreshes the list.
