So over these last years since the change in site coding, I never saw a thing about how this friends thing works in all of the exploration of the new
system as nothing said friends on it... Despite all the asking for additions...
So after one today; I thought ok time to research ATS and found quite a few threads containing "friends" but scrolled around that until I found out it
was all about the heart. Not being a page stalker of other members; just the posts found on the board and no one in specific, just the topic click
baiting me in...
I figured it out today... so I could now return the love; instead of continuing to be a dimwitted asshole to the system. But like an asshole I wiped
out all my previous emails not to hide anything just to save space on ATS servers.
So here's how the befriending works around here; click that down arrow next to the green speedometer unless you have a browser theme that changes
that, then you're on your own... so clicking that reveals that drop down menu... then you can go to members type in their name, go to their page click
the Heart which reveals the wall, then click the second Heart (a lot of love right?) and that will then U2U a message to them that they added you as a
But here is the catch... it takes love back for them to find out all of this and do the same thing unless they have already done it. Then you repeat
the same thing. Another way into that system; is clicking their mini profile to the side of one of their posts.... fast tracking you right to their
main profile page without having to put their name into the member search engine using the down arrow business and searching that way...
So my apologies for not being astute in learning how the friend system works sooner to all of those that have added me in the past and myself drawing
a ... but a ____ into figuring it out until now.
Feel free to add me again if you so desire and I will be happy to return the favor as an old cat has learned a new trick... yeah imagine that and you
thought only dogs right?
Oh and by all means feel free to use the instructions above to add other people not necessarily me.
so again: click or tap their user mini profile to the side of their post to take you to their main profile... or search their name as a member using
the down arrow at the top menu bar then click or tap members from the drop down menu bar and type in their name for a search, then click or tap the
Heart icon that says wall, their wall appears then click or tap the second Heart icon that says add as friend... bare in mind(naked awareness) or bear
in mind (as a beast of burden) they have to do the same thing for the add to be truly consensual.
In the past it wasn't for lack of my consent just my being full of ignorance... hopefully this points a bit clearer for those curious
Oh BTW I will not be moderating my wall; so feel free to berate me for not returning enough love; to take the time to figure all of this out until
now... that doesn't mean I won't see it... but respecting an opinion takes even criticism into consideration; but an insult to injure is no opinion
