Better wording of add friends during journal creation

Better wording of add friends during journal creation

Short, concise description of the idea
Wording here needs to make it clear that friends names should be LiveJournal usernames, not real names.

Full description of the idea
I and others with "real name" usernames tend to get added as friends by people who think the friends box is a place to list all your friends names. A lot of times, these people never update or delete their journals, and it clutters our "friends of" list. Plus, these people are adding people as friends that are not actually their friends.

An ordered list of benefits
  • New users will only add their actual friends
    Users with "real name" usernames won't have people add them as friends incorrectly

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • People will probably ignore the text anyway.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Just a language change, no issues.
