March 24th, 2008, 09:11 AM #1Buddy List - Does It work?
I have the feeling of asking this way back, but search turned up nothing.
From the board FAQ:The buddy list is used to keep track of the friends you have made on this forum. By going to your "My vB Home", you'll be able to see which of your friends are currently online, and be able to send them a private message.

If you click on the "User CP" button at the top of the page and look down the left-hand side, there is a link for Buddy List. If you click on it, you can add people to your "Buddy List".
I am not sure if this is what you are asking but you can get to the Buddy/Ignore List from there.

Well, I hadn't ever tried to enter a name before, so I tried entering one to see what it did and you're right.....I can't tell what is accomplished either.

Adding a buddy makes them have a '+' next to their name in the dark blue and then white band near the top of the thread.

memberX, memberY, memberZ(+).
The hypothetical memberZ would be on my buddy list. It adds extra visibility for your "buddies."

Cool! Thanks for explaining that. So what does it does for those on the "Ignore List"?

It might not be implemented to it's fullest extent here. I checked another vbulletin forum that I am a member of and it my User CP all of buddies show up in a special box in the upper left hand corner of my screen. I can tell when they are online, and it gives me quicker access to them (mail, pm, etc). It works like an IM buddy list. Maybe Haiko can enable that.

Give it a try once, add me to your ignore list and then come back to this thread. You will see what I mean. (Then remove me...lol).
That list and the buddy list are openly editable. You can add or remove users anytime.

That's cool, too!
I would be curious to know why someone would ever add someone else to their ignore list. I mean, isn't the point of this forum to learn from and listen to the opinions of others? Even if they don't agree with their views.
Whoa! Sorry, didn't mean to go all philosophical on you there.
