    "Buddy List Test"? It's been on my mind for a while. I've searched the FAQ section and searched on the VBB forum and there isn't any info. :scratch:

    That's been irritating me too!
    It's down the bottom left in the User CP. But I can't click on it. Maybe it becomes active if you've got people in your Buddy list.

    I just tried by adding someone to my buddy list but it didn't become active. It looks like it's a category header but there's nothing underneath it.

    So when there are people on your buddy list, then what? Is there someway to chat...or it just a list and thats it?

    When someone is on your buddy list they have an + after their name in the "who's online" section front of the forum. You can't do anything special to of with them when they're on your buddy list, it just makes it easier to spot when they're on. Just like admins can spot people who are hidden because they have an * after their name.

    If you add people to your ignore list you don't see any of their posts and they can't send you a private message.

    If you add the same person to your buddy list and your ignore list you can't see their posts in the forum but you can recieve private messages from them. I think this last one is sort of abug though. I don't know if it's meant to be there and if it's been fixed or anything.

    If I hooked you guys up with a chat option, you'd probably never post messages in the forum!

    Maybe it'll be different here but every forum I've been on who have opened up a chat room have noticed a drop in posting for a week or so, then it goes back to normal and the IRC room dies. I think people get really into it at first and then the novelty goes. That and you can't always use them at work.

    A photoforum hosted chat session could be a good idea though. A sort lesson hosted by the more knowledgeable users here who'll talk you through something and then open it up to question afterwards. I think something similar went on a little while ago but I'm not sure.

    We used to do the IRC thing, but it never really caught on. It can be a real technical challenge for some.

    I'm not too up on other options, but I'm not opposed to it.
