    What are friends for? - I mean the kind that friend requests establish on the forum. I think this is the only forum I belong to that has the feature of friend requests. I don't understand if declaring someone a friend has any important functional significance.

    No, I think once it might have had the option to limit some things to "freinds", but now I think all it does is put them on your list and they will have a + next to their name when you see them in the member's online list.
