I have a question regarding the Friends List in your Profile, what is its intended use?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hmmm dc3

I would consider the friends list to be a fun add on sort of thing. Not a very useful feature but just for fun. May I add you?

BC is supposed to be a friendly community. Part of being a community is having friends. So the friends list was made so people could keep better track of their friends.
When I'm asking for help, please explain, in detail, every step. Thank you :).

Agreed its a fun thing,and I have got nothing,but Positives from the friends list. Nice feeling when you recieve an Email saying that another Member has added you to their Friends List. After all,I regard BC as one big happy family.Often I will PM a friend who I haven't seen on BC for some time,and without fail I will get a PM back,saying how much they appreciate that someone has noticed their absence and cares about them. :thumbsup:

There's a friends list?

Solaris, how does this help to keep better track?

Um, well, I don't know lol. It sounded good. It just makes people feel closer if they can put each other on a friends list. If you don't see the need for it, then don't use it. But many people do and like it, and there's no harm.
