kristop, we're kinda wondering about that also.
I guess it's an enhanced "buddy" list.


Winston - look at anyone's public profile page other than your own, it's on the right/center.

Don't worry too much about it. It's not like a guy such as yourself is very likely to ever have any friends anyway.

So far I've only seen one TFL member who has any friends.

Kinda sad...

And for the record, I have: 2,deuce,dos, thats right Two friends.

I think I am going to make it a point to request everyone I can, as a friend. That would make me the most popular guy here. And then when I'm long gone, ya'll can look back in retrospect, and wonder why I was so popular.

Actually it's a term used most often by benchrest shooters when they find a wiggly scope mount.

"That's quite aloof group you shot there. You need to tighten up the scope rings."

Ok, that's two TFL members I know who have friends now, pax's protest notwithstanding.

I can vouch for Kristop's claim.

I been experimenting with it. Instead of filtering through the long list of names to see who's logged in that I enjoy reading their posts, I tag them as friends. It's faster for me. Also, it gives me an indicator if they're online we can actively PM each other instead of waiting for the next day for a response.

Good to know my 1st friend showed up on my behalf

I think if I start requesting friends, they will begin to think I am a narcsosistic, ego-maniac....which may be true, but is noone's buisness but mine....

"Narcsosistic"? Is that a person who does drugs, but they think they look really good doing it?

Sorry, that one was impossible to resist!

Can I request that I be my friend?.... probably the only way I'll get one...

OK scrap that! I don't want me as a friend. I wouldn't even live with myself, but every time I go home, there I am!

I just tried it and got the error "You can't be friends with yourself."

Guess the system knows me well enough.

However, with enough pruno and you shaving very close, we might get something going.

BTW: Somehow winks, getting called "sweetie" and drinking pruno seem not at all incongruent with being your friend. One could probably find themselves getting traded for a pack a smokes and being passed around like a peace pipe, not all that unusual also!
