    For one thing, it enables you to find out if one of your 'buddies' is online at a glance. Very handy sometimes...

    Just wondering, does that differ from the list at the bottom of the main forum page?

    Some people are invisible on the forums (ie. their online presence isn't displayed), so I'd gather on the buddy lists it'd tell you if they were on. Does it allow chat or any other extended features?

    And do you have to be a reciprocating buddy for it to work ?

    Isn't it more for when u are online, and your buddy is, u can chat 'realtime' via pm?

    U will know when u are both online.

    I think that buddy is one way. U don't have to be a friend to talk to someone

    I'd think the main benefit would be to know if someone is online if you want to put up a question you think they can answer.

    Of course, often you might be 'online' simply because you've left your net connection open when you've gone away from the computer.

    Yep, it let's you know when you're buddies are online. Easier way to PM them directly from your UserCP. I think it needs to be activated though, as I can't see any buddy list in the UserCP atm. Maybe gibgib has to enable it.

    Here's how it looks on another forums, using vb 2.2.9

    I think if people have a dislike or like for others they can eith be added or blocked from a buddy list. Normally on internet thats the way it works I think.

    I'd hate to think there are people on the forum who want to block out others...

    Hahahhahaha,

    The buddy thing is cute though, but only if u really need to talk to people.

    It can be abused though, not everyone has a dying urge to talk to everyone else.

    Just like messenger or icq or others They type in address, suddently u have to be their friend


    muhahahahahha
