"Add Friend" / "Add Foe" icons now available in topic view

Post by MWmetalhead » Sat Feb 27, 2010 7:04 pm

Have you noticed the new smiley face and frown face emoticons that appear below each user's name in the Topic view? Are you wondering what the purpose is behind these?

Do you miss the "ignore" button that was formerly available?

Well, I think I have some good news for some of you! :blink

The current version of the software utilized by the Buzzboard offers a feature known as Friends and Foes. Although this feature has been available for several weeks, it is not prominently featured and requires several keyboard strokes / mouse clicks to utilize.

Now, with one simple mouse click, you can add a friend or foe instantly! Click the smiley icon below any user name to add them as a friend; click the frown icon to add them as a foe.

What happens when you do this?
Members added to your friends list will be listed within your User Control Panel for quick access to see their online status and to send them private messages. Subject to template support, posts from these users may also be highlighted. If you add a user to your foes list, any posts they make will be hidden by default.
I hope some of you will find this new functionality useful!


Thanks, corporate radio, for finally tossing Nickelback to the curb. Now can you please do the same for Shinedown? THEY SUCK!!!

Finally, he switched to a bone saw to finish the job, and at 9:17 p.m., Mountain time, the head of the greatest hitter who ever lived had been sliced off.

If you couldn't read his post then it would mean you would have "foe'd" him.
Just go foe some random person craig and you'll see how it works.

I thought foeing was a 2 way street. If I foed you I couldn't see your stuff AND you couldn't see mine. It was mutual destruction. I must have misunderstood or confused with Face Book blocking perhaps.
