uhhhh...duh...Northern CA
The ignore list is a no brainer...but what does adding someone to the buddy list do? I had someone on my buddy list to test it out, but never noticed anything. I guess I was expecting trumpets to sound when he posted...or something...I didn't notice anything.


And, on a buddy/ignore related issue, is there a way to block PMs from individuals without putting them on my ignore list? E.g. I'd like to read everyone's posts, but do not wish to receive PMs from an individual -- is there a way I can do that?

Thanks in advance.

PM's can be separated....ingore none or all...

the buddy list would be nice if LOTS of people were online...with 300ish at a time, it's easy enuf to spot who's on....also, not all forums list "who's online" so it could be the only way to spot if your buddies are on....

It's complicated....
Yeah yeah.... old thread.

Brian, is there a way to make the names on your buddy list into links to their profiles? That would make the buddy list a bit more useful. So you don't have to find a post by someone if you want to send a PM... Just a thought. :cheers:
