It puts a little cross next to the name if you view 'Who's Online'.

Oh and you get a right to 10% of their income/wives/first born etc.

Re: Friends on the forum

Is it my imagination, or has the "Rep Power" gone?

Also, under my statistics I see I have 2 Referrals. Anyone know what that means?

I'm still Billy No-Mates, though!

Rep power went when we all got confused about what it meant - and it was causing a bit of trouble.

And you are Billy No-Mates no longer.

Without either wife or firstborn it's not much of a deal but I'll look under the sofa to see if I can find 10% of my income.

Is the halfpenny still legal tender?

Nick

On second thoughts maybe I'll accept Nick's offer of a halfpenny instead.
