Checkboxes on the "friend of" list in manage friends

Checkboxes on the "friend of" list in manage friends

Short, concise description of the idea
Like there are deletion checkboxes on the list of your friends, there should be an easy way to mass-add people who have already befriended you.

Full description of the idea
On the page where you manage your friend's list, I'd like to see checkboxes next to people who have added me but I haven't added. This way I don't have to count the names one by one to see who I need to add back. Plus, it would help not having to scroll up then back down to get the person's name spelled right. I can just hit a few checkboxes, hit the save button, and be all done.

An ordered list of benefits

  • 1. The list of friend-of on the manage friends page is useless once you get to a point of having a ton of friends, and this would make it useful.
  • 2. It would be easier to add people back, and see at a glance who I haven't added.
  • 3. It'd help not being able to remember the exact spelling of someone's name, and have to keep referring up above how to spell it to put it on the "add" line.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • 1. It'd take a little coding.
  • 2. It might be confused with the deletion checkboxes to delete people unless done differently.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • I can't think of more to say about the feature.
  • Tags: friends management, user interface, § implemented differently
