We are in the process of changing our username system and how usernames are displayed. You can learn more about this change through this article and our blog.
Let's keep this short and sweet. To add someone to your friends list, open it up in your client window:
Click the button labeled add friend.
You'll see a small pop up window with a text box.
So Many Options!
Did you know there's a few different ways to add your friends? We'll take a look at both, so you can choose what floats your boat.
If you want to add someone based on their username, you can use that window we found in the friends list.
Once you've done that, You'll either get a Green message telling you your request was successfully sent, or a Red message telling you something didn't work. If the request didn't send properly, but be sure to double check all the steps and enter it again! We believe in you. =]
2. Profile Button
Alternatively, a super awesome easy way to add your buddy on the fly is to find the add request directly in their profile. Check out how simple this is:
A. Right click their avatar either in the user list or in the chat window:
B. Click the Profile button:
C. Click the "Send Friend Request" button!
3. Right-Click Bonanza
Even cooler: If you travel just a bit further down the right-click menu, you'll see the option to add your buddy directly in the menu. One click and you're good to go!
Having Issues Adding A Friend?
If you're running into an error adding a friend, there may be a couple possibilities why this might happen!
1) You may have a typo, or need to check the spelling/capitalization in your friend's username!
Double check if you have any extra spaces accidentally as well!
2) Your friend may need to change their "Who can add you as a Friend?" Settings (in the Privacy and Safety Tab in their User Settings)!
Depending on your friend's settings, if you're not in the same server, or don't have mutual friends, you'll also receive an error when trying to friend them!
