    It used to be good for when the chat function was there, at the moment there's no real purpose to having friends.

    Yup. Last year there was a chat/instant message function on the forum, but you could only message someone who had accepted you as a friend (If I remember right) LH removed the chat function when they did a technical overhaul thingie, but the friend requests thing is still here.

    You can add and accept people as a friend and it doesn't make any difference right now, although I do often wonder if people can see that I have not accepted their request yet. I have about 60 requests but I just never clicked accept because there is no point right now and I am lazy lol. So I hope people cannot see that you haven't "accepted" them or they must think I am so rude! oops.

    At the moment the only point in adding friends is as a courtesy to people you interact with on the forums, I suppose.

    If they ever do bring the chat back, I hope it's easier to control - had a few instances of being messaged by guys I barely knew wanting to talk about sex. I suppose that comes with the territory but it's not quite what the chat was for and it bugged me!

    I am glad chat is gone for that reason too. Often it was ill disguised too:

    "Hi, how are you, I don't want cyber, just chat, so what toys do you own?"

    ME: "Oh I have this and this"

    "Niiiiceeee ...Now I am imagining that and I am horny"

    BLOCK!

    I did make a few good friends on the chat but I started to ignore it more and more due to the above, and being busy writing or something, then I would feel so rude!

    Hehe, if chat ever comes back, I will have an overhaul and accept people then.

    For now: Laziness wins.
