This may have been covered but what about a friends list on profiles?

    I may be ignorant here but is there a way to add friends on our profile? If not, is there a way we can get it added? With so many posters on here, it would make it alot easier to keep up with friends if we had it. Just a humble request.

    I'm not sure what you're getting at here, OM.

    Are you looking to be able to link in some of the people you are freinds with here on the BYC?

    I think it would be cool, but other than just a list, what purpose would it serve? Not being negative here, just trying to understand your reasons.

    Great idea !!!!! niftychicken the administrator has a BYC improvement thread going. Just add your suggestion and he will see if it is workable. I think it is a very good idea.

    A friends list. Something on our profile that we can add to so we can click on it to pm on a need to basis. Like on facebook or something. thats what im trying to bring up

    If I need to pm someone, I just do a search for them. That's easy enough to do. Often they'll be in my messages too so it's an easy thing to just click on their name there.

    It's been requested a few times but honestly isn't high on the priority list. We want to avoid being a myspace, friendster, facebook clone and stick to doing best what we do best. This isn't to say we will never add some similar features, but we prioritize them based on how they will help the community and our mission to help everyone raise chickens and our vision to have a chicken in every yard!

    Quote:I wasn't trying to make or suggest BYC be a "clone" of any other websites. I was just suggestion the option of using a friends list, rather than having to go back through you're inbox to look for who you want or even having to search for them. I agree that everybody is friends on here but everybody has a select few that they stay in contact more than others. Sorry for the suggestion, will let it go by the way side.
