Friend or Foe

Post by Onyx » Tue Sep 16, 2014 11:24 pm

I'm just checking out the new forum software. Great work guys!

There's a feature to add people as Friend or Foe. I'm just wondering, should I put everyone in as a Foe until they prove themselves? Also, can we have a third category - "Frenemy"?

No.

This is a Christian site. It's either something is black or white, good or evil, loved or hated, gay or straight, friend or enemy. . . "Frenemy"? Pffft. What's the matter with you? :egor: :lol:

Do you want to ignore the other mods and admins, or just others generally?

Naw, that's Jocose on the downside of his cycle. He's not an introvert but has a varying tolerance across his cycle. That's when he turned to his sock-puppet The Impudent. When he is sociable or needing prayer it's Jocose we hear from. So his implementation was different.

I meant as an intorvert being able to go to a forum and see a bunch of posts have been made to a thread, but being able to click and open individual posts as you choose......would be heaven.
