'Someone added you as a friend' email

'Someone added you as a friend' email

Short, concise description of the idea
An option to be emailed when someone adds you to their friends list

Full description of the idea
Optional - settable in the same place as setting the option to be emailed notification about replies to your comments and entries. Emails you yo tells you someone has added you to their friends list and who it is. Gives you a link to their journal so you can read it and decide whether to add them to your friends list. Gives you a link to be able to add them to *your* friends list in return. Knows if they are already on your friends list (in case they added you in response to you adding them) and tells you.

An ordered list of benefits

  • You don't have to remember to keep looking at your userinfo or .../friends/edit.bml to see who has you in their friends list and have to keep cross checking this list with your own friends list...
  • As friendly as the notification emails for replies to entries and comments.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • All I can think of here is - what happens if you add someone to your friends list who is already in your list? I beleive that it just works and does not add the, twice, so this is not really an issue...
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • A checkbox next to the one about emailing replies.
  • Tags: friends, notifications, § implemented
    • Post a new comment
