    Friend Requests

    What are "friend requests"? I just noticed these now and I've "accepted" all requests that have been sent my way, but what does that mean?

    Ok, ok, ok, so I've been gone for awhile, give me a break.

    Ha! Beats me. I don't even know how to send a friend request otherwise you would have received one from me Debbie.

    haha I was confused by this, too but if you go to your UserCP there is a 'friends' tab and you can see your list of 'friends'. You can go to other people's profiles, too, and see their list of friends as well.

    I'm glad you asked as I didn't know either. What do you do with these friends, though, once they are in your profile. Is it for PMing?

    It's just like the old "Buddies list" - but you can click on someone's icon on your "friends list" in your own profile, and that takes you immediately to that person's profile page, where you can quickly send them a public or private message. Public messages appear just on their profile page, though, so if they answer, you'd have to check back on their profile page.

    Debbie, we made a new upgrade a few weeks go, check down in Town Hall for a bunch of other new features - and explanations!

    I didn't know that; glad you mentioned it, Karen. I've received an unusual amount of friend requests recently.

    I wouldn't have known what it was either if my friend hadn't recently signed me up with a myspace page.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    I was wondering what this was also, since I got an e-mail about it this morning. Thanks for explaining Karen!

    So now there are public messages, as well as private ones?

    Yes, if you click on my profile, for example, you can see my public message, which even nonmembers can see.

    And not only that you can then post pictures from that album in any thread! No more forced reliance on Photbucket, etc!

    LOL, It's a secret list of all the people who are stalkers!

    it reminds me of the words to a song I love.

    After all, don't doubt you part be ready to be loved."

    Well, I figured out how to send a friend request....you have to "befriend" someone.
