    I Didn't Know I Was So Popular

    I've seen where they updated the forum software and made some modifications. Still trying to figure some of it out.

    Since then I keep getting all these notifications of members wanting to be friends with me.

    I'm not loaning you any money!

    It sounds like they are staging an intervention.

    They have this whole friend thing on a couple other forums I post at. It's sort of cool to have people's profiles right at your fingertips and what not. Beyond that I'm not sure what all it does. Sort of just incorporating some of the features of the social network type sites I suppose.

    I figured it was a new feature of the forum software. They do a similar thing on another forum I'm on that uses the same software.

    Personally, I love this feature. I've sent out quite a few requests. I haven't really chatted with most, but I really enjoy their posts. If you have time, stop by my page, and drop me a message or friend request. I think this will really help this site grow, as we will become more familiar with eachother.

    Interesting Feature. I had a couple of requests also. I accepted, of couse, because you can never have too many friends.

    Don't quite get what it does, but I guess we'll all find out sooner or later.

    I just requested your friendship to be a smartacre.

    Seems like it's some type of underground allegience....

    Remember, anyone who has exactly 9 friends is obviously a member of the RedsZone 10.

    True, but non-members might stop taking friend requests at 9 to give the illusion of Redszone 10ness.

    And the RZ10 is so powerful, they are likely to have some patsy non-members accept only 9 friend requests to spread disinformation and confusion.
