Why are some member's names bolded?

Under stats, where there is a list of users online.  Why are some members names in bold and others not?

Bold members are people you have listed as "friends"

Send me a invite and I'll be your friend.  Go to Send a Friend invite under profile, and I'll accept immediately. ;D

i didn't think they're invites.
i think you just add people to your list.

so they don't know you picked them as your buddy
its like not knowing who's ignoring you

not on my version.

I can click on someone in the Users online list to see their profile.
in the middle of their profile is a link to add as a buddy.

or if I go into my own profile there's a link that says edit buddies.
the next dialog has a search to let me add people to my buddy list

as soon as i add them, their names appear in bold without any approval.

Tom's just being silly about the whole "invite" deal. 

Your "bold" buddy list should be exclusive to those whom you either like or interact with regularly.  Why have the names of people that you don't care for?  And you can always remove people who no longer have your blessing.  Just go back to their profile and click on "remove buddy."

Absolutely.  She'll turn on you in one hot second, depending on how much Klonopin she has.

You mean has not had.  If you learn how to time it like me, she can almost seem, well... pleasant!

skeeby, I just added you.
so will this highlight a buddy's message so you can scan quickly to their posts or only highlight there name in the stats bar (in the last of online members)?  eh, I guess I'll figure out soon enough...


EDITED: nevermind...I figured it out  ;)
