Build your friends list

How do I use my friends list?

  • The friends list is mainly to contact people.
  • You want to have friends who can answer some of your questions
  • Click the people button: 2 heads side by side.
  • Click the Friends tab to open friends list.
  • The first tab will show friends online.
  • The second tab will show all friends.
  • To find a specific friend, type the first part of the name into the top bar.
  • To send an IM, double-click the name.
  • Remember, you can drag things from your inventory into the IM bar.
  • That will send a copy to the friend.
  • For more options, right click the name and read the menu.

Build your friends list from people you meet

  • Hover your cursor over the avatar, click on the i button that appears.
  • If you are not already friends with this person, click the Add Friend button.
  • You will get a notice if they accept.
  • You may get friend invitations and can accept them if you choose.

Make friends with people in IM

  • Look on the top line of the Instant Message panel.
  • The offer friend button has two figures, side by side.

Find friends by name

Find places that share your interests

  • Ctrl f opens a search panel 
  • (This works in Kitely and probably some other big grids.  It may not work everywhere.)

  • Try synonyms--the search is verbatim.

Find groups with interests you share
