Default Re: VM, Friend, Contact?

Thanks so much, Xxaeroxx. The pictures are a great help. I got so caught up in this that I never got around to eating! I am now starving, so I'm going to take a food break and then start practicing what I learned.

What is a VM? I see mention of it in postings, but I couldn’t find it in FAQ. Visitor Message, others call it profile message. When you look at your profile you will see messages that members have left you (you can turn this option off so that you don't receive any)

I read the section on friend and contact, but it doesn’t say what a friend is beyond saying the relationship is two way. What does being a friend entail? no sharing personal info. All a friend is on WI is someone to talk to who has a common interest as you, you think they are funny and just want to chat with them. You do not have to accept the friend's request, but it sometimes makes it easier when you are wanting to chat with your friends, just look at your contacts and pull them up that way

How is being a friend different from exchanging PMs or responding to another’s post or thread? In a post or thread, everyone reads what I say to you. In a pm, it is just me and you talking about cows or our long day we had or how I saw something funny that made me think of you. Pm is Private message

The FAQ say a contact is a one-way friendship. How can there be a one-way friendship? Isn’t friendship reciprocal? I can ask to be your friend, but you have to agree to be my friend, it won't automatically add you as my friend until you accept

The FAQ say you might want to list someone as a contact when you don’t want them as a friend. Under what circumstances would you do that and why? I personally can't think of a reason, but it is an option available

How does one become a contact? What is the purpose of maintaining a list of people you don’t want to correspond with or vice versa? I”m obviously missing something. Having all your contacts in one place can be easier for folks instead of looking on the forum and searching for them. It is sort of like an address book cause it lists them alphabetically, but don't worry, there is nothing shared about each other (your address, real name, age, etc).
I figured it was easier to quote you and put my answers in brown for you. Feel free to pm me if you have any more questions.I will be happy to answer them

Hi everyone,
Thank you so much for all the answers. I am still learning about all the features of WI.

What are contacts?

Where are they stored or saved?

How do you use them?

Thank you so much for your help.

Contacts: I think of contacts as friends, you can view your list and see them easily

where stored: view your profile
look to the right where it says friends
show all friends and it will list them for you (normally only 6 are shown and they change randomly. Once you hit 1000 friends, then only 1 friend will show, 2000 friends, 2 will show etc..)

How to use:
when i look at my contacts and find my friend that I am looking for, click on their name and it will take you straight to their profile

After reading your post, I feel so much better about being confused. You asked great questions! If I ever master the friend thing, I may ask you to become one. =)

You can do it. I just went to your profile and asked to be your friend and posted on your profile while I was there.

Default Re: VM, Friend, Contact?

Thank you. I spend a lot of time on this site being confused: every time someone posts an "easy" way to do something technical. LOL. (And I never know whether LOL is supposed to go before or after the period!) Part of the explanation usually involves "just using [one technical word] to affect [another technical word]." The poster seldom realizes that for the technically challenged, instructions should begin with a very clear explanation of terms in nontechnical language and preferably with pictures! (The pictures posted for me by xxaeroxx, above, were very helpful.)

With the help of a couple of new friends, I did learn how to request and accept friendship the other day. There were a couple of false starts, but eventually I got it, and so will you.

As for the happy face, it's the only one I know how to make. Change the equal sign to a colon. The code will continue to look like a colon and a close parentheses on your page, but it will turn into the happy face once it has been posted.

Default Re: VM, Friend, Contact?

A VM stands for a visitor message. You can leave a visitor message for someone by clicking on their username and choosing to view their profile.

Really, there's nothing extra that you get out of adding someone on your friends list, it just makes them on your contacts list, and I guess that makes it easier to find them to PM them, or leave them a message than finding them in the forum and then clicking on their username.
The thing is once you get into like the 100's on your friend list.. it gets a bit difficult to find people. LOL.

If you don't want to add someone simply just ignore the friend request by selecting the box saying to ignore the friend request.
Hope I could be of help!

Default Re: VM, Friend, Contact?

When you click on someone's name in the forum it gives several options for you, one being: View Public Profile. Click that and it'll take you to their profile. On their profile there's a box where you can type. It posts a message on their page and it notifies them that you did, and they can respond and post one back on your page.
Nothing really special about being friends with someone. It might remind you to send them a PM saying Hi and stuff but I'm not sure if there's any special features to it. It shows up on your profile, who some of your friends are.
There is kind of a difference. If you are sending a PM with someone, you're talking to them and kinda "being friends". Sometimes PMing is used for other things as well.
