I have 5 buddies on my list at present.

If I get many more, I am not going to remember what is who or why they are my buddies.

I don't want to have to PM a buddy who has been there a long time to ask them to remind me why we are buddies.

Is there someway I can place a reminder tag on my buddy list?

It would not have to be long. It could just say  "PM'd me a credit for The Da Vinci Code offered on BB" or something like that. I think I would remember with a prompt.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I played around with the Buddy List system as it is now and could not come up with anything.

Thanks,

Marla Maye

You can create tags for your buddy list -- any kind of tag you want -- and tag each buddy.  You're the only one who will see the tags.

Thanks to your help I figured it out.

It is not the easiest system in the world to use, but it works.

Why not ask them if you've forgotten? I just blast PM'd about 2/3 of my buddies and told them the list of tags that I had before PBS upgraded it and threw away all my tags, and told them I was trying to get everybody tagged again, and that if THEY knew why they were on my buddy list, could they please tell me? Like I said, I listed the bunch of tags that I'd been using, including "likes same books" "great swaps" "cookbook helper" "needs help" and "just cuz" I have a lot of people on there, just cuz. Just cuz I like their views or their input on something, just cuz i want to remember them for being a nice person, or whatever.

Nearly everybody that I sent the PM to wrote me back, which kept me busy for the next two days. Did I mention I have 325 people on my buddy list? hahahahhahaha What fun life can be sometimes!
