Re: Whats the buddy list?
When someone is on your buddy list, you will see a + after their name in the Who's Online section at the bottom of the main forum page (unless they're using "invisible mode"). It helps you see at a glance if any of your buddies are online.
In older versions of our software, there were buttons beside each name in your buddy list. Clicking on the button helped you send them a pm more quickly. Why they removed that feature, I'm not sure. Maybe they will bring it back in a future version.
