Friends

Last time I had anything to do with working on vBulletin the "Friend's" feature was totally useless (except to provide more work for Admin).

It had no functionality and was turned off on the boards I worked on.

Does the feature still have no functionality?

It seems to do what it was intended to do. I like it because it doesn't get in yer way.

Rick, thanks. That's not what I meant though.

When you have befriended someone what functionality do you get? When I worked with vBulletin there was none.

So, I befriend you. Then?

Can I message only friends? Can I look only at friends posts? Etc.

It seems there is still no functionality, but I thought maybe something may have changed from 4 or 5 years ago - otherwise it still seems to serve no practical purpose........

It also makes it much easier to find the trees you want to message amongst the forest on this site.

Kevin,

I now understand what you are talking about.
I wasn't aware there was to be other functionality

maybe there is something that should have been switched on when the forum was created, but that is above my paygrade and is more a question for Jason

Rick. There wasn't 4 years ago.

I thought maybe there may be some functionality now. Looks though like nothing has changed.
