When it comes to your PC friends list, are you selective of who becomes a member of it? Or do you just let whoever asks onto it?

I am selective, yes. I maintain a distinction between friends and contacts.

Since I love having friends, I'll accept anyone but if they disappear from PC completely without me knowing or get banned I end up removing them from my list so it remains clean.

I'm not really strict when it comes to friend adds.

I have to say I'm rather picky when it comes to my friend list, as in I won't accept random requests because that just seems weird to me.. adding someone you don't even know. But if I've talked with the person well enough and seen them around, then yeah I'll add them to my friends list. Other than that I do often clean out my friends list, perhaps every motnh or so. n__n;

I some some standards. I usually don't add people I've never talked them but sometimes I will. But usually I have to get to know them or interact with them in someway before deciding to send them a friend request or accepting their friend request.

My friends list is empty and will remain that way. It's intentional, so that only staff can PM/VM me. {:

I *was* selective back then, but that was because I wanted to see who actually talked to me or not. I was really strict to requests. Like...I literally hated random requests. But now I'm like... "a friends list doesn't mean nothing anymore" So whoever adds me as a friend now are 100% more likely to be accepted without any circumstances. xD

To some extent, yeah. I'll only accept people I've actually spoken to in some capacity, so if people are just randomly adding me, they won't make the list. If they've made any sort of effort to get to know me, I'll probably accept.

I used to try to trim down my list all the time, horrified any time it went over 100. But you know what? I've been here over a decade now. <_< I'm allowed to make more than 10 friends a year, on average. I don't want to remove old friends even if they don't visit anymore and that shouldn't restrict new friends either. I think caps are, quite honestly, kind of weird... unless you only want to use it for quick access to your absolute closest friends.

Yeah. I only accept people I actually talk to. I dont like having a large friends list of random people I don't even talk to. It seems silly to me.

Not really.. I mean I don't get many random friend requests and all, and the rare time I do, I'll pop over and say hi and chat.
Why restrict people who just want to chill and get to know you? :c That's a bit unfair to me IMO..

This man here knows where the **** it's at! I utilize the top 20 approach too. I'm also not all that popular so it's not exactly like I'm rolling in with friend requests loooool

I like to put most people who talk to me on my profile on my friend list so I can contact the easier rather than trawling through my tens of pages of VM's.

I agree completely. I don't really have any limitations when it comes to who my friends are/how many are on my list. I don't really get any random requests, either, but whenever I do, I never decline the request or ignore the person sending it. I'm very welcoming to those who want to be my friend, and I kinda expect the same from others. I honestly believe that meeting new people is the best feeling in the world.

I think I'm subconsciously selective. I'll talk with everyone and anyone, sure. But I only really "communicate" with people who strike me fancy for some reason, whatever that may be.

PC Friends don't really mean anything significant to me. So, if someone makes a friend request I give them the ok

Usually I'm always open for random requests. And just like Kura, I always try to talk to them. I just love having new friends.

Generally I am pretty strict on friend requests, and like how many have already pointed out, I must know a person well for them to be on my friends list or have interacted with them frequently at one point in my time (and theirs) as a PC member. Although I don't exchange VMs with much of my friends anymore, I still feel that I'm connected with them.

As for requests, I generally don't accept requests immediately, and usually I send a VM to get to know them better. However, I have made exceptions in the past to where I immediately add people to my friends list because I saw that their list was low, and didn't want them to feel bad for me denying a friend request.

Very selective. If we had a long conversation before he/she invites me to become one of her "friends", I would accept.

If they stop talking to me, they lose the friend-list privilege. That simple. I don't want someone who doesn't talk to me in the list because then it just makes things untidy.

I usually only except those I know from other forums, but will occasionally accept other requests. Im not really into having a huge friends list.

I used to just accept like anyone but since starting this account I'm pretty selective about my friends list, which is kind of odd because I don't really care about it that much. I don't have any restrictions on people talking to me at all and I don't ever use the contacts system. I don't care how many friends I have. I don't think I've sent more than three friend requests on this account. I usually just forget about it until someone sends me a request. And then I'll only accept if I actually have friendly conversations with them.

Most of the friend requests I tend to get nowadays are from members with very few posts and haven't made the effort to talk to me. So I don't feel that bad about rejecting them, to be honest, as they probably weren't looking for a deep and meaningful connection with me. For those who have spoken to, and seem to get on with, me I'll probably accept any request that they give. But that, unfortunately, hasn't happened in a while.
