Friends & Foes:::::::::::

Postby Dan4th » Wed Jan 20, 2010 1:38 pm

Just curious........

Is there actually anyone on here who
uses this function? Does anyone block
posts from other forumeers or consider
someone else to be an "Enemy"?

I don't think IA is big enough to make this functionality of any use ;)

For anyone that doesn't know:

Friend: Your "Friends" appear on the left hand side of your PM Inbox so you can communicate easily
Foes: Their posts are never fully visable (you have to click to expand their posts).

Having tried it at least once to find out what was what .I found that the blocking of an individual Sort of messed up a topic so you ended up having to cancel it then go back and read a topic again to make sence of it .Experimental failure for me so unless I was really really fed up with an individuals posts I wouldn't use it .

Actually I DO use it, and choose whether or not to read these individuals posts in the thread they've posted in or not!

Probably not...... but MY CHOICE!!! \:D/
