    It means you're on your own buddy list.

    It means that at least one person here likes you (even if it's just you). :tongue:

    That is so cool, I count as my own friend! Maybe an onlooker will see it and think I have a friend other than myself!

    Does the buddy list actually do anything besides put a + next to the person's name? I've tried it and it doesn't appear to serve any purpose.

    There was a thread in GD about this. The only reason I could come up with is if you block PM's from everyone but your buddies (and mentors of course).

    Do PM's from someone marked as a buddy get through the block?

    Yes, I just checked in User CP > Edit options and the check box is tagged "Receive Private Messages only from Buddies and Moderators"

    The following text is above the check box:

    You may limit the receipt of private messages to just moderators and those on your buddy list. Other members who attempt to send messages to you will be told that you have disabled private messaging.

    No, it's a painting by Waterhouse of "The lady of Shalott", a poem by Tennyson.

    It looks a lot like me when I was young, even the length of the hair.

    evo - floating to your "doom" in the boat amidst the flowers. You look great for someone who was around in 1888. :smile:

    I have almost every Waterhouse there is a print for. My wife Rosie mounted several.
    Waterhouse did the Ladies. The 1888 boat and 1894 'looking at Lancelot', the 1915 'shadows' We have shadows in our bedroom, along with 'La belle dame sans merci'.

    You can look at the work here - down at the bottom there is a pull-down box to get access to most of his work:

    ^ Same wavelength probably 90 degress out of phase, I can't be certain though.
