I think its for private messages. I think if you have a buddy list and set your pms to buddy list only then you dont get pms from anyone other than that list?

Not sure. I dont see the point in it.

I have no 'buddys'

It makes them and their posts easier to find.

And yes, as Holly said above, you can set "buddies and admin only" for PMs if so choose you.

I have lots But I don't know how many have me on theirs

Let's say you had me on your buddy list. If you wanted to find my most recent posts you wouldn't have to search my name. You could just click on your buddy list and go from there.

It is particularly helpful if you have a "buddy" who has a complicated name ... with stars or dots or spaces in weird places or whatever and you can't remember the exact spelling.

Thanks BR, but when I click to see where the 'buddies' are, all I can see are their names. There's nothing to highlight or anything.

At the bottom it says "To view the complete members list, click here". But saying that, mine doesn't work it says it's been disabled by admin and I can't find any way round this.

There should be a little circle to the left of each name - click on that and it will bring up their profile.

I don't know, i've never had any buddys on here lol seriously though i'd not seen much point adding any but since the poster ( i forget their name) mentioned it's easier to find peoples posts it sounds ok actually!

Well there is on mine so I'm not sure what you are looking at.

The way I get to mine is :

Quick Links ( near the top of the screen )
Open Buddy List

Then you get a little pop up box in the top left hand corner with all the names on. Little circles to the left and squares to the right. Don't know what the squares do.

Brilliant!

I actually went through 'User CP' then went to 'Buddy/Ignore' list etc..which obviously doesn't work.
