    I uploaded pics in a private album - do all my "friends" get to see them or do I have to add them as "contacts" first?

    Is there a difference between friends and contacts? :dunno:

    Can I give different people different privileges? Or do I have to defriend to maintain my security levels and post coolpics?

    One feature that is a bit intrusive- I can click ons someone's profile, and can see who they are PMing or who is PMing them. I don't know if this is apparent when someone is in invisible mode, but I have noticed this several times on profiles.

    Edit- we can't see the activity of someone in invisible mode. I just checked a few peeps that I know are incognito, but online right now.

    :blink:...ewwww. Some of this is sketchy. Where does this show up?

    Has anyone figured out why someone can leave you a visitor comment before they are your "friend"? :dunno:

    Ooh! I know that one! :D

    You choose whether or not non-friends can leave messages! It's at the bottom of the long list of settings where you choose email preferences etc.

    Well, in my case the word "design" is used very loosely. Haven't got there yet.

    Jdarg jdarg! What are we going to do with you? All of us invisible people are the ones who are supposed to be skulking around and spying on posters, not you! I dunno if I like the way you're turning the tables on us... :floor:

    Ok.... I have 1 more question:lie:

    ...if we are out wandering on peoples home page, just to get a look, is it rude not to leave a message?

    Oh, something like..... "Just checking out your page and it looks grayt and confirms I have no idea what I'm doing"

    If you wish to limit your visitor messages to your Contacts and Admistrator, go to User CP, then Edit Options, Then Vistor Messaging. The option is at the bottom of that area.
