Buddy List

Can someone explain the purpose of the buddy list. I have refused to add people on principle until someone can explain its function. Thanks.

It has no function.

One day it might.

I think it makes it easier to tracker where your 'friends' have posted, but not a lot easier tbh. But like I said it might improve later (social networking style).

It's a way of showing that you matter!

Thanks. The utility of actually checking to see when someone posted hadn't occurred to me.

More importantly, it's a way of showing that I matter.

Plus, you can figure out who you do and don't like based on who their buddies are!

The only snag here is that you can only look at a posters six listed buddies and the selection of which six seems to be random ie not in date of when added or alphabetical order or anything... so if they have more than six which a fair few of us do your picture will be incomplete. wink

Awesome. It's like "I have so many friends, I couldn't name them all if I tried."

Basically all this kind of stuff is floating around until there's a decent way to do user profiles (myspace/facebook stylee) - I reckon that'll be possible for us to sort out first half of 2008, then it might all start working a bit better.

I said 'you' I know for sure that I don't matter.

Jef, it would have been clearer if you had said "it's a way of showing that Nate matters."

Sorry Nate,

The buddy list is one of the many ways of showing Nate matters. Birthday cards, hugs and oral sex are just a few of the others.

So next time you see Nate ask yourself, have I shown Nate he mattered?

But Jef thats past tense. Whats the problem? Wouldn't he reciprocate for you? Is that why you think you don't matter?

Yeah, well fuck your buddy list, I don't need you! I don't need friends... I didn't mean it, I'm sorry, I'll be good, be my friend. I've got a dog called Emma.

Hey everyone, catch is MY buddy, but I kinda think it's because of my dog neutral

Nah I know already so I wouldn't expect anything from Nate.

I just went onto a user profile and it told me they'd asked to add me as a buddy.
I thought it told you directly if people added you, seems a bit odd otherwise.

No idea, it's a crap module, it might get better eventually.

It's working fine for me, Catch, so no need to fix it.
