This one was done by request. It's a simple, easy to install hack that will take you less than 5 minutes to install. No screenshots because there's nothing to shoot.

If a new person registers at your board and lists an existing member as a referrer, this will automatically add the new user to the referrer's buddy list. And, the honor will be automatically reciprocated.

This is a great hack for beginners to try because it involves only one file edit and no templates, phrases, or database changes.

Enjoy

ok here is the deal. two guys added a girl on my site as friends. she does not know one and HATES the other. I guess they saw her profile as a guest.

>sigh<

Sooooo now she is asking that NOT to happen anymore.

I told her to simply just remove them as friends. I have also that vbfriends hack.

ok is there a hack (I think this has to be moded if there is) that pm's a user that so and so just added you as a friend. do you want to do the same kind of thing.

that way girls dont have a mob of guys as friends they dont even know.
Same for guys... dont want the wife saying who the hell is that.
and he says I dont know her.
But you have her as a friend!!!!!
:bored: (I'll pack my things....)

Let me know. Thanks.

Well a referer and a buddy may not be the same to some folks.

I didn't read the code, but put a checkbox there, if you have not already, asking if they want the referer added to the buddy list. :smoke:

Noppid, personally I agree that they're not the same thing, which is why I didn't install this hack. I just write em. Don't always use em.

The problem is that it needs to be two options. The existing members need to be able to decide if they want the newbies to be on their buddy list and the new members need to decide if they want the existing member added to theirs. All easy enough to code, but I have enough trouble getting new registrants to read the registration screen without adding a new option.

couldn't you just have the user option in the existing buddies page? "add your new referrals to your buddy list"? and that be enough? alternatively you can do that and then send the new members a pm with a link to add the existing member to their buddylist?

/me is just tossing around ideas

I was thinking a very simple idea.
you add me as a referral.
You add me as a buddy. I get a pm saying you added me.
If I want to add you click here kind of thing and that is the end of it.

Straight forward no interface needed. Can some one put that together for me?
In other words if I get a referral they become my buddy and I become theirs.

instantly when the new guy joins up.
of course it should work with the referer link as well.

PLEASE guys its small if you can that would be nice.
Your original request said automatically and with no interface. So, that's what you've got. Feel free to tweak it to meet your specific needs if those needs have changed.

why would you put a response like that?
What would that do.
I did ask for the hack and you responded and I am gratefull. Never said I wasnt.

I asked the second question simply becuase (should I retype all of it or use quotes?) A girl found from using the hack a ton of people was instantly (well in a day) added to her friends where she didnt want that to be the case.

SOOOOO from testing you could say I realized ok... you do need to inform a user. That isnt a interface. I dont see how you see that to be a interface.

AND I was only having a conversation. For me to tweak response I mean... I am asking here because I do not know how to tweak as you put it.

Look I am thankfull you did it really.
Thanks.
