    The + means that Latindancer is on your Friends list. You and Prancer are TD friends ... whoda thunk it?
    We are definitely NOT. But very strangely, KW sent me a red and a friend request the other day. I denied it.

    But you didn't deny it, did you?

    We friends!

    I tried out the friending thing and after adding Latindancer and OhOh as a 'Friend' without sending a friend request, I realised that I had actually only added them as contacts and not 'friends'. Then I thought about it a bit and worked out/found out what the difference is between a "Friend" and a "Contact" on this forum.



    You can add anyone as a 'Contact'. You only become a 'Friend' with a contact if you send them a friend request and the other person accepts it. So 'friends' are mutual contacts who have agreed to be 'friends'.

    So what's the difference in practice? Not much, maybe none for some members, but potentially there is some for others. It all depends on what settings you have chosen in your control panel in the Profile Privacy part.

    https://teakdoor.com/profile.php?do=privacy

    In Profile Privacy, you can set things to either: Everyone, Registered Members, Your Contacts, Your Friends.



    If all your profile privacy options are set to Everyone, Registered Members or Your Contacts, there will be no difference between what contacts and friends can see. The only difference will be when you have a setting as 'Friends'.

    So now you know.

    You're welcome.

    So back to the original question...

    Why do I have a * and Latindance a +?

    Curious minds want to know...
    ...the * indicates you are in Invisible Mode.

    ...the + indicates a Contact (which may or may not be a Friend).

    I checked the Contact + thing out. When I added Latindancer and OhOh as Contacts, I could see a + next to OhOh's name at the bottom of a thread page. When I removed them both as contacts, the + disappeared.

    I am inquisitive and I quite like to know how things work. I also enjoy finding things out and learning new things. I also like to be helpful so I often share what I have learned. Sharing is caring. Is that what autistic people do?

    Nev, no criticism levelled, it obvious you are a detail man.

    I had chap worked for me 5 years ago. We had regular meetings to thrash ideas out covering a range of things, i chaired it and we'd shuffle some stuff aside and move some stuff on. He though would always have an interest in the stuff we chinned off and twice he came back having worried the issues in his own time and found I'd made a mistake in not keeping it on the table, turns out there was merrit in examining it further. Luckily i'd told him that if ever he caught me out that he should come and see me and put me straight.

    He doesn't work for me any more, i got him in the blue sky space and he's happy there but now i worry i'm missing stuff

    Blue sky space? You sent him onwards to Heaven? Seems a bit harsh!
