Friending

So how does "friending" work on this community?  What does it do? ETA: What is the advantage of friending other users?

Makes it easier to communicate to them, and tag them in posts if needed.  Not sure what other features it may come with though as I didn't play with it on the test site.

Thanks,

Yeah,  I didn't test it either. Not sure of the advantages.

Cheers, C0rr0sive.

How does one go about adding  another user as a Friend?

Great question! A bit like trying to find Waldo, I sure haven't found how to do. Would think it'd be in the PM area but nope.

You're right, BirdDog. I knew I saw options to Friend or Ignore someone, but I couldn't remember where. Turns out that currently you can see those options when you read someone's PM:

These buttons should also be on one's profile so that it's not necessary to send them a PM to see this screen, but I'm not seeing them. Cat Frustrated I'll check on this too.

 

If you have a tech or billing question and need help, please start a new thread in the appropriate board. Unsolicited Private Messages may not get replies.

Sure enough, clicking on a message in your inbox yields:

After hitting the button we have this:

Still don't quite know what friending someone does... ETA: I tested the friending thing and the button changed from Friend to Unfriend.  Does the other person have to approve the friend request?

Sure enough, there it is. Thanks for helping me find Waldo, sure is kind of a hidden feature but at least I know it is there now. Some short messages I don't even click to open it as can read entire text without doing so.
