Re: Users you've never heard of saying hi and friend requesting you.

You caught me, I'm afraid to have friends.

It isn't like for the most part they even say anything interesting, they're always just like "HEY WHAT'S UP HOWRE YOU TODAY WAS LAME HOW WAS YOUR DAY"

It's like they have presets saved for uninteresting conversations. It'd be fine if they said ANYTHING of value.

Re: Users you've never heard of saying hi and friend requesting you.

In order for someone to add me to their friend list and not be considered creepy, they must have either had conversations with me on several occasions throughout the forum, or we must have shared some form of pm/vm conversation. If I haven't actually talked to you, I do not know you well enough to accept.

(And the situation described in this thread has happened to me several times. It's weird.)

Re: Users you've never heard of saying hi and friend requesting you.

I don't mind. I usually start becoming friendly with such users after having added me to their list. I have a pretty modest friend list, and I've never rejected anyone. I like it that way.

Evilsbane makes a really good point.. Stop the people who are rude... life is short you know so make the most out of it! That's all I really got to say.

In real life...I hate having friends. They are so annoying. Online I can friends with anyone without even talking to them! How cool is that!?

That is the ideal friendship I like. A friend who does not talk.

Re: Users you've never heard of saying hi and friend requesting you.

It's happened to me a few times in the past. I don't know that I've ever declined a friendship, either. The more friends the merrier or whatever.

Haha well I was joking, I'm honestly annoyingly popular in real life (not to toot my own horn :<)

It seems the more comeoffish and jackass-like you are in real life the more people want to be your friends. How weird.

In an experiment involving a newspaper, the volunteer was asked to flip through a newspaper, and count how many photographs there were. They were told to do it "quickly, but don't rush".

Typically, the people who had described themselves as unlucky took two minutes to arrive at the number "52". Those who had described themselves as lucky typically took just seconds... there was large advertisement on page 5 which read: "STOP COUNTING - THERE ARE 52 PHOTOS IN HERE". This demonstrates that lucky people tend to keep more of an eye out for opportunities, noticing things that might escape others. What's more, there was another advertisement further in, which read "WIN £100 BY TELLING THE EXPERIMENTER YOU HAVE SEEN THIS!"

In another experiment, both groups were interviewed. The unlucky ones tended to have very closed body language, folding their arms and such, while the lucky group tended to have open body language, and smiled about 3 times as much. Said Wiseman: "So not only were lucky people better at spotting opportunities, their body language was subconsciously attracting them".

Link to a video detailing the research
Well damned if that just doesn't have anything to do with the conversation at hand.

(it is interesting though)

Re: Users you've never heard of saying hi and friend requesting you.

It happens, but I don't really mind it much. I really enjoy getting to know new people on the site, though I do prefer a little bit of Vistor Messaging before I accept or send a request.

Re: Users you've never heard of saying hi and friend requesting you.

I need to at least either talk to them or be in the same thread a few times. Really I don't get many friend requests on here. But I'm not around here all that much so it doesn't bug me too much.

Re: Users you've never heard of saying hi and friend requesting you.

I got one from a new member and she was actually being very friendly. Of course i accepted. Its just being nice. On Facebook or myspace, i usually ignore people i dont know. On a forum its a little different because i really dont have personal information on here.

Re: Users you've never heard of saying hi and friend requesting you.

I have people send me friend request and comments from time to time and it doesn't bother me at all. I don't see why it should? I even find myself sending friend request and visitor messages' to people of this forum who've never met me. Usually when I send random FR it's either because I've read a couple of that persons post and they make me laugh or we might have some of the same common interest. Theres nothing wrong with that...

Speaking of which everyone in this thread can send me a FR and VM because I love you allll!!!!

Re: Users you've never heard of saying hi and friend requesting you.

I usually click "yes", by default.

but if they post something creative like:

BE MY FRIEND OR I'M GOING TO ****ING SHOOT YOU THROUGH THE INTERNET RIGHT NOW.

..... , ,_____________________
..... / `---___________----_____|]
...../_==o;;;;;;;;_______|
.... / ______|
.....), _(__) /
....// (..) ), ----"
...//___//

then I might reply back with a witty comment, funny picture, or even mildly offensive word.

Re: Users you've never heard of saying hi and friend requesting you.

When it comes to ZU friend requests, I don't accept all of them by default. Its really easy to shoot me a message saying hey and introducing yourself or just saying some random comment so that I actually have some idea of who you are. So as long as I can recall some sort of casual interaction with you, then I have no problem approving friending requests. If I see I have a request and I have absolutely no idea who the person is, I tend to reject them.

So I have some criteria, but it really isn't hard to fulfill.

As for facebook, it rarely happens that I get friend requests from people I either don't instantly recognize or manage to remember after looking at common friends and whatnot.

Re: Users you've never heard of saying hi and friend requesting you.

Actually, on ZU it only happened once, recently. I accepted do to the fact I'm newer here and I felt it appropriate to try and fill up my friends list. As for facebook I usually accept to see what they're all about, if they are up to no good I just remove them, I know it sounds harsh but if they don't know me, they shouldn't take it personally.

Re: Users you've never heard of saying hi and friend requesting you.

I usually say yes, unless I know they're some crazy person, or just some person I don't like.
