Buddy List?

Gath, is it possible to have a buddy list something like the instant messenger programs do, that would tell a member if persons they select to put on thier buddy list are Anywhere on the site? Then maybe give them a signal that you are also on site and would like to find them? So many times many of us on SA or Easy page find we just missed someone by (-) this much, cause one was on SA posting and the other was working a puzzle, or posting on  another page.

I have no idea if this is possible, or if it is easy or difficult, so just asking.

Indicate which comments you would like to be able to see

What a BRILL idea, MizT.

I think that would be a good idea as well, if it is possible.

Gath, if such a thing is possible, it would be GREAT! We're looking forward to the possibilities!

You know that I must add my voice because I'm always missing someone just as described. Great if it can be done.

Hi Everyone,

I was thinking of a general 'These people are on site' page which would let you know who was onsite. Of course, you could select 'do not show me' in your personal details so that you would not show up in the list.

I'll have a think & do something this week.

Is this something that is still being considered? Because it is a great idea if it is possible. Thanks Gath. And thanks MizTricia.

This would be a nice feature, especially if it identifies both members and non-members. It would be nice to know when some people (no names please) are 'lurking in the shadows.'

I guess nothing came of this. Too bad, it was a good idea!
