    On CF I have a buddy list and a friend list, what's the difference?

    A "friend" is someone who's reciprocated your buddy-ing interest, I think. :)

    A friend is someone that will stick with you through hard times.

    A "buddy" is more of a temporary friend

    What does 'buddying' someone do?

    In the Marine Corps there was this saying about the differences between a friend and a buddy (and I'll spare ya that one:blush: ) but a buddy is closer than a friend.

    But what practical effect does either status impart?

    I've always thought of buddies as people who you connect to through good times, hobbies, etc.

    A friend is someone that is there through thick & thin. Understands your quirks, etc.

    Buddy= Not very serious.

    Friend= Serious.

    Although I am speaking of real life here. Not the internet.

    On a BB, no idea. *shrug*

    Your 'Buddy' list on CF is the people you personally have added for whatever reason...usually because you like the person and want to let them know. :)

    Your 'Friend' list is the people you have added as a Buddy either before or after they have also added you to their Buddy list.

    It doesn't serve any practical purpose, other than possibly being useful in mass PM's....hmmmm....ANYWAY, it's just for fun and for letting people know you care about them. :)

    A friend will bail you out of jail.
    A buddy will be sitting next to you saying, "Man. That was fun!"

    I'm so glad we now have an easy way to know this. Prior to now we've had to resort to crisis situations, and other such things to figure out exactly who they are. This is great news! :)
