Default Kayembee's Guide on how to Friend someone on WW

KMB's Guide on how to Friend someone on WW

* * *

Here's another Guide that was actually written by someone other than Tyro244, but the knowledge needs to be shared. I had posted a question -

About User CP & Edit Profile
http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...t-t221154.html

And after I had the CP & Edit Profile questions answered, I knew that Kayembee was clearly a knowledgeable (and helpful and kind and supportive and...) so I ask about how I could Friend my niece who was the reason I started playing in this silly World of Webkinz. Below is that discussion and links to the pics that were supplied.

I'd like to point out that Lilypad1394 also provided helpful instructions, but it was Kayembee's screen caps that made this post Guide worthy.

* * *

I'm still a bit green. How exactly do you friend someone? I have been trying figure out that one since I joined WI.

I have my niece's username, but she told me we would need to "meet" in the Clubhouse to add each other to our friends list which we cannot do right now since she no longer has a high speed connection (long story). She is well know to be full of misinformation, but I figured she would know how WW works. Then again, she though penguins need to live in rooms with the Ice & Snow motifs or they'd get sick. I had to ask here on WI if that was true or not. My point is, she might be wrong about the method of "Friending" another as well.

Is there way to add, or to request to be added, to someone's "Friend" list if you simply KNOW their user name? Could I for example add a name from Petey's room and send a request to, let's say Littlexred since as you say she is looking for friends? (Hi Littlexred!) I tried to send my niece a simple note, but the the w-mail gizmo thingy told me I could not do it.

It told me I did not have any friends. How mean. I looked for a place to type her username in somewhere, but could not find one. Did I miss it?

I'd love to know how to finally send some of the extra WF gear I have to her account so she could get a nice surprise the next time she logs on. She missed the whole week.

And it be great to prove to her that Uncle Michael is not totally inept on WW.

Any help you guys could offer on that front would be greatly appreciated. Or is this one of those, "If I told you, I'd have to shoot you," AKA "You must be Gifted first" things?

First off - what a great Uncle you are. Second - you have found WI which is loaded with info and people that will be more than happy to help you, so that's another feather in your cap!
Thirdly - this message will not self distruct in 30 seconds... lol - you don't need anything special to be able to send a "Friends Request" on WW.

As Lilypad said, look for the phone symbol on the lower right corner of your WW screen. Once you request them, they have to accept. (Normally you will have to log out & back in again once they have accepted for it to show up on your phone.) It should be self explanatory, but if you need further help with it, just let us know. If you would like to do a 'trial run' you can request me and I will accpet to show you how it all works. You can delete me once you see that it has worked. Let me know if you'd like to do this (WW - also Kayembee)

Little isn't neccessarily looking for friends by posting her user name her on WI, just that she runs 'the risk' of having a lot of people request her. (She can always say No or Block them tho). That doesn't always happen - just one reason why some people choose not to list it.

So in a nut shell - you will be able to send your niece gifts once she accepts you on her friends list, or you accept her if she sends the request. Make sense??

Oh - another important reason to have her on your friends list and vice versa - you can then be invited over to each other's houses and play Arcade games together!

Ok - some easy instructions here...

~ Click on the phone icon in the lower right portion of the screen.
~ When the phone maximizes, click on power (it may take a minute)
~ Click on Add
~ Type the friends user name in the box, and click add.
~ You will see a pop up that says Message Sent
There are rare occasions when you are unable to 'Power up' your phone. Sometimes a way around that is to go to the Clubhouse screen and power up from there. For some reason it

works more often than not from there.

- Once you are accepted, you will recieve a message.
- If some one is requesting you, you will also recieve a message that will tell you the Username of who is requesting. It will give you an option to say Yes, No or Block.

Aw shucks Tyro! You give me too much credit. It was my pleasure to help you get connected to your niece. It is I who should be praising you for your continued help in sharing the knowledge that you have learned with everyone here. We were all new at one time, and what seems like a piece of cake to us, is a plethora of information for the newbie.

((Hugs)) and 's

Your pal - kmb
