Why is it that when I finally get around to submitting feedback that I always figure out part of the answer myself 2 minutes later? I promise that I look around and think about what I want to submit for days before I actually do so. But, inevitably, there will be some part of it that I answer myself. Duh!

Anyway, I sent in feedback because I noticed that when I set certain parts of my profile to buddies only, that I was no longer able to access them from my profile page either. Of course, when I changed my wishlist to buddies only, I adapted by just checking it from my personal wishlist where I can see my place in line. But, I also mentioned that I couldn't see my books sent/received maps when I tried changing them to buddy only. Then, I put in my feedback "Is there even another way to even access that information?" Right after I hit send, though, of course it struck me that it's accessible in my transaction archive. Duh! I knew that but for some reason I forgot until AFTER I hit send. Of course, I'm still happy that I sent in feedback because I'm curious about the main issue of not being able to see information on my profile that my buddies can see. Doesn't it seem odd that my buddies can see the information but I can't? And from what I can tell, I can't buddy myself either. lol!

Actually can add yourself to your own Buddy List, I am on my own Buddy List. I sent myself a Buddy Invitation when they up-graded the Buddy List earlier this year to see how the auto-accept feature worked.

Yup, that's what they told me in response to my feedback as well. It seems an odd solution, but I guess it will have to do. I think I'd just prefer to see my information the same way a buddy would automatically without having to buddy myself, but whatever. I'm off to add myself to my buddy list. :)

I could not find a button to send myself a buddy invitation. Anyone want to show me how?

Under the "My Account" heading menu, select Buddy List. Near the top, there's a link that says "Add New Buddy". It opened a script window for me where I put my name in and it sent me an invite. Don't forget to accept your own invite! :)
