Question Friends, Romans, Contacts.......

What is the significance of friends and contacts?
Is it just a warm fuzzy, or do you see each other's posts or something like that?
Thanks,
Ken

check the FAQ tab in the blue bar above...

the list includes YOUR question, here is a brief snipppppp....
_____________________

What is the difference between a friend and a contact?

A friendship is a mutual, two-way relationship between two users. It is initiated by one user and accepted by the other.

A contact is a one-way friendship.

This could be where the other person does not accept the friendship, a friendship request is pending, or you do not wish to be friends at this time but want to show them as a contact only.

Where is list of friends and contacts displayed?

Your friends and contacts are displayed on the 'Contacts and Friends' page in your User CP. Your friends are also displayed in your profile page.

How can I request a friend, accept a friend or break a friendship?

There are two ways to request a friendship with someone.
The easiest way is to view the profile page of the person you want to become friends with and click the 'Befriend' link.
The other way is to add the person to your contacts first. Then from your 'Contacts and Friends' page ask to be their friend by checking the box next to their name labelled 'Friend'. Next, save the page.
If you know the username of the person you want to be friends with you can send a friend request using the box provided and clicking 'Add Friend'.

To accept a friend, go to your 'Contacts and Friends' page. At the bottom of the page you will see a list of pending requests. Check the box for the requests you wish to accept then check the 'Accept' button and save the changes. If you do not wish to be friends then select 'Reject' instead.
Breaking a friendship can be done in three ways.

From your 'Contacts and Friends' page, uncheck the box for friend for the particular person and save the changes. If you no longer wish them to be a contact either, uncheck both boxes for that person.

In your 'Profile Page', click 'Friends' and then click 'Break Friendship' next to the user's name.

In the other person's profile, click 'Friends' then find your username and click 'Break Friendship'.

i'm pretty sure the FRIENDS section is being used for ONLINE money laundering, exchanging seedy videos and group meditation...

while the CONTACTS section is 4 doing those things IN person.

not that i have any first hand knowledge, it's just what others do....

I read all that stuff in FAQs before, it tells you how but not why.
Before for someone says it, yes I know that "If I have to ask why I want friends, I probably don't have many."
Regards,
Ken

got me.

the vB software allows forum communities to do some creative STUFF with these contact/friend lists.

not many of the features are enabled here.

there is a small box added to the portal/thread page reloads that SHOWS all of your friends that are logged ON, and pm'ing them is easier.

'mini groups' are another possible with vB which makes keeping track or planning of small group gatherings easier.

the more interesting question is who/what and WHY use the 'ignore' feature...

i tried putting myself on the ignore list but got some really strange feedback from the microphone/screen and speakers....

want some seedy videos?

i've got revealing flicks of pumpkin and caraway ready to ship???

cheers

LOL - if you had worn your tin foil hat, the noise from the speakers wouldn't have impacted you at all. Now... there may be little help.

The ignore list is intended to help you ignore others - not yourself. Placing someone on your ignore lists means that you won't see their posts, they can't PM you and assorted other bits of cyber shunning.

If you want to ignore yourself you may have to take stronger measures.... Covering your mirrors, stop talking to yourself, there may be medication available to help as well.....
