    Yeah, it wasn't even a feature in the old, old boards. Back in the ol' days, you had to remember who your friends were...

    It (the friend option) came around the same time as profile messages I think?

    Probably. I think I was MIA during that time.

    Didn't TFW still have a contacts list before that at least? I could've sworn there was still a quick way to pm other members.

    I remember the tech spec bars, that's for sure.

    Barely. I would. I only talk to like 4 people on my contact list. Sometimes i think about deleting people but im just too lazy. I dont like accepting requests unless i think im gonna talk to that person once in awhile .

    Never sent nor received.

    Too casual, I suppose. Post on a thread or two, quick opinion and go. No real 'connections'

    I think all of mine have been people requesting me. I'm around here enough that I know who I like and I always forget about that feature until someone sends one to me. But it's still nice when someone sends a friend request after seeing something I've posted. I do sometimes feel I fall into the cracks when people post lists of members they like here. Maybe it's because I don't really interact with people outside the main messageboard. I'm not much these days for PMs and visitor messages or IMs or whatever.

    I really try to be a true friend to anyone on our board. That said, anyone who sends me a request, I return the favor. I figure despite the value of the functionality, it can't hurt anything.

    Once a year, if that. I usually accept friend requests. While I do like what some folks have to say in the forums occasionally, I'm mostly here for news/information and to kill some time now and then. TFW ain't Facebook and social networking isn't something I associate with this site.

    Too bad there isn't a Bestfriend option.

    I know who I'd put on there.

    I've never used it, but apparently cool people keep adding me whenever I say stuff, so they probably agree with what I said at specific times. :thumb
