Am I marked?

  1. Mar 9, 2006 #1
    I just noticed a little plus sign at the end of my name at the "who's in the forum" section. Is this just for marking my account or does it mean something else?

    A plus mark next to a member's name shows that they are on your "buddy list". I don't know why you would see that next to your own name, I don't think you can make yourself your own buddy. That would be kind of sad.

    Anyone else know?

    It seems that the control panel does give you the option of adding yourself to your own buddy list. That is kind of sad. (Haven't actually tried it--maybe it doesn't really work.)

    What does the buddy list do anyway? If I add you to my list, will you be my buddy Doc Al? :!!)

    Not sure. If someone's on your list, it's easier to see if they are online or send them PMs, I think.

    You're already on my buddy list, Evo! :!!)

    OK I'll admit it, I was screwing around on my control panel. Actually I first tired to add myself to my ignore list but that did not work, so I saw if I could be my own buddy. It's not that sad:blushing: . What does the ignore list do anyways?

    Ignore does just what it sounds like it does. You won't see anything that person posts or sends you by PM.

    So that's why you're always on invisible mode!

    I like being my own buddy. It means I always have someone to talk to when no one else is around.

    I have the Evo on my buddy list.

    It hides a person's posts in the threads you browse so you can't see them.

    Edit: I'd not read russ's post when I wanted to post this! Ah, I don't know why it always takes me to the first page when I click on F&A threads on main page.:bugeye:
    Once you said yomamma is also on your buddy list! :cool:

    I'm on my buddy list, but, I'm considering removing myself because I don't answer my emails.
