Has there ever been a function that would alert you when someone adds you as a friend.
I aask only because recently I noticed for the first time when looking at someone's profile that they had added me as a friend. I always figured that I would receive some sort of alert, but have never received one.

Is there an ATS function that does this, and if not what are the steps to request such a function?

I too am interested in having a function that does this. I don't think there is one. It sends me alerts when I'm added as a rival but never when I'm added as a friend. Also, it used to show a green background for my friends that said "ONE OF YOUR FRIENDS" like a sort of watermark behind their post and it would be red for rivals. I sorta miss that.

I would like this too. I also liked the old format of the green/red banner that indicated friend/foe.

It stopped when they implemented the major changes to the site a few months ago.

Not sure about the friend thing, but i know i disagreed with someone the other day and got a u2u saying they'd foed me.

Tell you what, i don't do the whole friend thing usualy but i'll add you if i can find out how, then you can see if it lets you know in a u2u.

I think I read (ages back in some other thread) that the friend notification was disabled with the implementation of the old u2u system (due to the flooding of messages) people were receiving when the feature was first implemented... (?)

It seems odd the the Added as a friend message was taken out but the For one wasn't.

I know the foe one still works for definite

Not you Dave, I dont believe it.

I guess if I really want to get a message, I will have to try very hard to get on someone's foe list.

Use Tools drop-down at top of page to go to 'Profile'
On your own profile page click the (friends) on top of page.
This takes you to page with threads started by your friends.
Down the left hand side under your avatar and such
find "I'M A FRIEND OF:
these are the people who picked you as friend.

This feature is not yet implemented as the amount of such activity would place a further strain on the servers. In order to optimize the response time when one navigates the site, this precaution is necessary.

Perhaps at some point...

You can get to the 'FRIEND'S THREADS' quicker by using the 'SHOW RIBBON' at the bottom of any page. That's a new feature.
