Buddy List??
« on: April 12, 2007, 07:13:43 AM »
What happens when I "add this person to your buddy list"?

Either a fairly new feature....or just further evidence of my relative absence from suburbia.

that's for AIM purposes; if somebody's screenname is in their profile, and you've got AIM running, you can click on that and it'll add their name to your list.  (in theory, anyway.)

ooh, wait, no.  that's what I get for not actually looking.  I don't think that is for AIM.
Andy, what is that for?

When you click "add this person to your buddy list," it automatically e-mails that person your full name, social security number, boss's phone number, and the name of your kids' schools. ;P

Jk, fan.  I think I'm gonna take a chance. I'm gonna click it.

It bolds your buddies. And makes you send a personal message from the post screen. No little computer shows up.

A little less poor taste please Alex. It's a public forum and you don't know who has been affected by what.

(No, not me. But just be aware, ok?)

Dunno, it was there when we moved in.

Actually, by the looks of it it makes their name bold in the 'Users Online' lists, and makes it easier to send them private messages.

Not something I coded - it comes built into the forum we're based on.

(clicks "add to buddy list". Nothing happens. Outside, on the roof, lights go on that say "Happy Christmas 1985")

Meh, stupid pointless button...

(clicks "remove from buddy list". The lights go off)

Yeah, I know, but the lower case "s" threw me. Maybe it's a UK thing to be AIDs not AIDS?
