Default A Good Way to Make and Connect With Friends

Hi there!

I've just found a great way to meet new friends and people here at WI. Just go to the bottom of the forum home page, and randomly click on a username. More often than not, the user has barely gotten any profile messages and don't have many friends. Why not get their friend's list started and a conversation going? Sometimes members here are active, but just don't post a lot. But they ARE here, and they matter.

Also, if you want to talk to a friend, for example, and you want to know if they're online, just go to "Quick Links" and click "Open Contacts Popup". That will make a small window pop up with a list of your online friends. I've found that to be pretty handy and I'm sure many of you will too. (I know that some have already known about this, but this is just for those who don't ) If you haven't talked to an online friend in a while, stop by and just leave a quick profile message!

Some great ways to meet new friends are:
~Through A/S shops (avvie and siggy) {Thanks twilightcrz!}
~Clubs {Thanks twilightcrz!}
~Open Mike

Feel free to leave any comments/suggestions/criticism as always!

Thanks dogluver! This is a fabulous way to meet new friends and pals! You may just meet your new BFF with this method. If that doesn't happen, at least you'll have a new friend. Not all of the members here have had a chance to make any friends yet, so if you can be their friend, you might have very well just made their day.

I know you can meet friends any random place. I met you via a suggestion thread I believe. I've become very close friends with several of my A/S customers too. Clubs are also great ways to meet people who like the things you like. It just makes it easier to have at least one friend one WI, so go up to a random person, and chat with them today! Have a terrific evening!

What a great post!

In fact, I DID make a new friend through this method. I know a lot of members here don't get messages a lot, and just a message brightens up their day. Trust me, I know because I used to be one of those members.

Yeah, I think that's how we met! Clubs and A/S threads are great places to meet new people, I'll add it to the front post! Meeting people that have the same interests as you can almost always result in a friendship, although I know some "opposite" people are pretty good friends too!

Thanks again for the wonderful post, twilight!

Default Re: A Good Way to Make and Connect With Friends

This is truly a great idea. That would make a new or lesser-known member really happy, and like twilightcrz said you might find your new WIBFF that way. Or if someone has a creative username that you think is cool, tell them. That will make them feel special, even if just for a moment.

Another thing I have done is if someone has something in their siggy that catches my eye I'll ask them or compliment them on it. That's actually how I met my WIBFF.

I agree.
My WIBFF (luvzingoz)
and I met when I said in my siggy that I needed a particular psf.
She sent me a VM, we started talking about other things, and now we have been friends for about 8 months

Default Re: A Good Way to Make and Connect With Friends

I totally agree, Dog Lover! People DEFINITELY need more friends around here on and I seem to have a lot. xD But people who don't have alot still matter, no matter what. Even if they join November 2007 and only have 18 posts, they still matter. Everyone on is nice, but we should show it a little bit more, by saying hi to the people who are new, chatting with random people, and helping people who really do need help! If they come to you with a problem, don't say, I don't know go ask someone else! Try to figure it out yourself for them, unless it's a simple problem, and if it is a simple problem, tell them! Even the older people of still need help sometimes! So give a little love, and say hi to every member on Webkinz Insider!
