    On my list of members I follow it shows myself on the list. How can I be following myself? I just don't get it :confused:

    Then when I click on the full list it says mutual follow next to my avatar?
    Any clarification on this woukd be very much appreciated.

    Thank you :bow

    Hi Yorkshire Coop! I can't answer your question but maybe you can answer mine...how do you "follow" someone? And if you follow someone, does that mean you see when they post something?

    Been here about a year now, but still learning new things. Thanks!

    Hi there!! Yes as matt44644 said click on anyone's profile name and it will say follow member on the drop down box. Then when you go onto your own profile page it should show you a list of who you follow. I find it easy this way to put public messages and do pm to people rather than hunting for a post from them.

    As to the seeing what they post and there activity I've found it a bit hit and miss. I usually only see what people are posting if it comes up on the recent BYC activity page on the home page.

    Oh god I hope I'm not a stalker :oops:

    LOL I'm only joking all are friends here and not stalkers :hugs

    Thanks for bringing this topic up Yorkshire coop. Did you ever get your original question answered?

    And no, no stalkers here, it will just make it easier to find some of the people I usually 'meet' up with.

    Thanks matt44644 and Yorkshire coop!

    No I still don't have an answer to the original question. I'm sure it will be something very simple and easy to understand when it's pointed out to me,probably just can't see the wood for the trees :confused:

    Hmm... that is odd, and it shouldn't be possible to "follow" oneself.

    Is it causing any adverse effects for you, or is it just weird?

    Any idea how it happened? Do you have an option to unfollow yourself?

    It's not causing any problems it is just weird!! I've just been and looked on my profile at the members I follow it still says mutual follow and shows two little arrows under my avatar. If I click on my profile name the drop down box appears with usual all posts threads started infractions etc. if I click on another members profile name I get the unfollow member on theirs.

    Very odd but it's not a problem for me. I realised I was following my self when I recieved an email saying I was following myself?
