My brother joined and I want to add him to my list so I can give him a few credits but he doesnt have a profile. I tried looking him up in the directory using his email but I couldnt find him. His wife who has a profile has already added him but even when he pmed me I saw no way of doing it. Is there a way to add someone without them having a profile?

Haha I figured it out and I feel dumb now. If anyone else needs the answer here it is. When someone pms you on your pm page where it shows all the messages you have had their name will be highlighted and linked. Click it and it will take you to their sheilf. From there you click the buddy button on the top of the page.

That's good to know Chris, thanks for sharing the answer!  I didn't think it was possible to buddy someone without a profile.

Also you can look them up using their e-mail address, (in case they haven't PM'd you) and then put them on the buddy list. I had to do this recently, too, with a friend who signed up.

oops - I just saw that you already tried that.
