It is really tedious sometimes, having to add all your friends alts over and over each time they make a new character. Also seeing 16 people online when it is only one (and 15 alts) seems silly, not to mention how confusing it can be when your friend has 16 characters... who can remember all those? I can just about remember my own! :P

 

I think the whole thing needs an overhaul to become more user friendly.

 

Some suggestions:

 

 

  • Make it a requirement for us to ACCEPT a friend request, before others can add us to their friends list. This is important in the next suggestions for privacy from strangers.
  • Once a friend is added, it will AUTO add all current and future characters they create.
  • The friends list and server screen should include the CHARACTER and MAIN. e.g. "Mongo(Flash)"
  • There is no need to list all of my characters on the server select screen, just the one I am logged with. In the format suggested above "Mongo(Flash)" or if I am logged on my main , just "Mongo"
  • Also I think it would be really great, if someone could just whisper "Mongo" and I would then receive that message, no matter if I am logged on Mongo, Flash or any other character.

 

So basically we are taking our main character name (account) and incorporating that to include every alternate character.

 

Also not sure if you fixed it yet as I have not ignored anyone, but if we add a player to ignore it should include all their present and future characters.

 

If anyone has more suggestions please post, also please post if you think this idea sucks. Thanks.

 

Actually thinking about it think the other way round would be better, so Main(alt). Here is a quick mock up I done of what our friend list would now look like (hope you don't mind me using you as example Razzy) :P

 

So Raziel Is logged on his alt Kainn and has accepted my friend request, I now see this:

I think this is a great suggestion. I feel like you should have to accept a friend's request in order to show up on a friend's list. Otherwise, it's too easy to stalk players (mainly see if they are online or not), as it sometimes gets annoying to have to /dnd. I think making the friends list link to a players account is a great idea, and one that I questioned from the beginning. 

 

Hopefully they implement this, as it gets confusing when someone doesn't tell you their alt's name and you have no idea who it is.

Yes Yes YES!

 

Except I would probably prefer the name to be listed as Kainn (Raziel) in the list. But that is minor detail.

Please!

 

I logged on yesterday and it said I had 32 friends (I wish  ;) )

Logging in it was just 3 people (who have over 20 alts between them) and another 2 who were hiding on alts I hadn't yet added to my FL...

 

And since I am lazy I just ended up shouting in chat to find out which alts they were on   :D

Yeah I originally wrote the suggestion as that ernz before I edited, could not decide which way would be better. If people prefer the "alt (main)" that be fine too. :)

And so here I am again agreeing with Mongo. :P

This is a great idea. I logged in on Monday or Tuesday to discover 43 friends online. Well actually 7 but there you go...

I think it would be nice if you could add a note on someones name when you ignore them, so you can remember why or make it that you can set your own name headers to add people too.

 

Example:

But this would block people from whispering u when they are in need of something. Am I right?

People wouldnt be able to ask for help or so.
