I might be a little late to notice, but I didn't see another thread on this:

There is now a Give Credits button on people when you go into their profile. I am guessing this will allow us to give credits to someone without buddy-listing them as long as  they have a public profile. This was my biggest whine on the change of the buddy list, how it created too many hoops to buddy credits here and there when someone needed to borrow one.

Thanks R&R.

eta since many people do not read all of a threads posts, about post 15 Sheri points out that this button has now been added to your shelf too.

Oh, nice!  I hadn't noticed that, either.  Thanks for pointing it out!

I wonder when that took place because just a few short hours ago I had to accept someone's BL request so that they could return my credits from a game.

I think it's brand new! There's been a lot of discussion about having to make someone your buddy to give them a credit and them having to accept, so I guess they figured out a way to take care of it!!! Good job, R&R!

Great idea. I had to buddy a woman yesterday just to return credits, since yours truly mixed up a book order. between two different sites.

Marcy - for transactions go awry, if you go into your transaction archive and click on the details of that transaction, you can return the credit from there too. That one showed a little while after the buddy list change.

I think we have a coder obsessed with buttons :)

It's ok, Melanie, if you were a Tour Guide, you'd have jumped up and down over this button. You wouldn't believe how many questions, complaints, and problems we TGs have fielded on the inability to buddy someone because they couldn't/wouldn't/didn't get them on their buddy list! This is a perfect answer. No buddy business required. Sweet and Simple!!! I'm so glad that programmer was obsessed if that's what caused it! hahhaha

I did jump up and down when I saw it:) I was one of the people freakin out about the change. I've probably given away 20 credits since I joined that had nothing to do with transactions and since the buddylist change, only one. I was very happy to see the button show up on the transactions and even happier for this one. That's why I had to come share my excitement with all of you!

I just found it kinda funny (in a cute way) the number of buttons that have been popping up around here with all the changes.

Whohoo!   This makes the buddy change so much better.  And it makes giving credits even easier than before!
