    It means that they are dangerous, and you should watch them carefully.

    Actually, I have no buddies, so no buddy list, so no clue

    I know, but we've all gotten together and decided not to tell you, Bob. So, sorry, I'm not allowed to say.


    Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Seriously, I don't have a buddy list either and have no idea.

    Hope someone who DOES know responds so we can all find out.

    Uh, unless it really IS some sort of secret??

    Guess you have to ask the person with the + and the one with the asterisk. I've never used the buddy list, the ignore has been useful though.

    It means they've chosen to be 'hidden/invisible' to the general public and the asterisk identifies them to admins. But admins can also make them be seen regardless of whether they've chosen to hide or not.

    Aw, gosh. I just never have set up a "buddy list" -- mostly out of ignorance. I haven't the slightest idea what a buddy list is or what it does.

    Enlighten my ignorance??

    It makes it alot easier to find the people you respect on the forum and the ones you don't want to be bothered with. I'm going to get off this Laptop and back on the network now that the thunder and lightning seem to be over here. My hands are to big for this small keyboard and I don't care for the touchpads in the middle either.
    I have a 10" span from tips of my thumbs to the tips of my little fingers on each hand comes in handy for rough measurements.

    I know Loxly isn't going to let me get the last word in.
    That's just not like a woman.
    Not even our female animals let me get the last word in.

    knowing VB as I use dit for years * don't appear in the buddy list only on the whose online and it's an indicator of who ise your buddy.

    If it's showing in your buddy list it may mean something else here

    It looks like Mobilebadboy was correct tho, as the forum names at the bottom of the main forum page shows the people's names with a + sign
    And the 1 with the asteric, if I hover over his name shows him as being invisible.
    But his name does still appear there to me.
    Which is OK, at least I know he is online.
    And I think Loxly should change the Title to read
    OK I'll ask what does the asteric stand for.
    Because a search won't bring anything up.

    I'll leave as you titled it. I don't like being called out in a thread for something I did to help out.

    Ok My appology Loxly. I wasn't meaning to sound like I was calling you or anyone else out. I also had the lol and smiley face there in that post. #13
    And as for the other thread I even stated [I believe its the last post of that thread],
    That I wasn't sure what to call it.

    Anyway wasn't calling you out, You have the right to do what you have to do as in the terns of ABW.

    Invisible but I heard it doesn't really work and when somebody uses it, everybody can see the asterisk. I had it for awhile for the holidays because it looked like a snowflake and it was holidayeee
