Hi EPA!
Great idea! Added!
Now when you click "cancel" it will bring you back to where you were before.

I'm still experiencing the same problem. The indicator stays at the gold color, and not changing to white. But after clicking the thread title, it took me directly to the new post on the thread, which is a nice feature!
I think I have now found the issue, and it should be resolved.

Hi Jordan,

Just checked in today, and I got 7 friendship requests. What do I do? How do I add them? I haven't seen this feature before (well, it was in the friend/foe thing, but this seems brand new, since they all came in at once!)

Help!

It's something I'm playing with at the moment, might not go "live" necessarily.

Well, in any event, it did finally direct me to a list, and I checked 'em all! They are officially "friends." They were before, but now it's official! :D

Thanks so much for all you're doing! It's really neat.

Should we ignore the requests, then ?

It won't hurt either way colin, I'm watching the effects of these enhancements on the server load at the moment. We'll see if it stays or not :)

Sorry folks,
Those additions that some of you may have seen for a short while moments ago blew the server load too high, and whilst this type of feature set I think would be highly beneficial to the forum -- right now I think it's not ready for "prime time".
So if you received any friend request PMs/Emails you may ignore/delete them.

Unfortunately, no. It had proven to be too obtrusive -- and even with tweaks it remained so.

Hey, Jordan!

How about implementing a "Multi-Quote" function for the board? I've see that used on MANY forums! TCB-World and Elvis: It's A Matter Of Time are two message boards I know of that use this wonderful feature. And how about making it easier to post hyper-links? The old way was confusing for me.......

There's a multi-quote function enabled on the quick reply box.. Just highlight what you want to quote and click the "quote selected" link.
