    Default Friend Requests

    What's this about the new feature on the geocaching site, "friend requests"? First I thought I had no "friends", then I got a request from someone who started caching yesterday and I was stuck for an answer. How do I know I want to be his "friend"? Maybe he's a really nice person. Maybe he's a mass murderer (but I doubt it). Anyway, I accepted but have no clue what that means, if anything. Somehow this feature sounds more like My Space or whatever teenagers are into.

    If you don't know him, there's no reason to be his "friend". LOL!

    I wouldn't want to be friends with anyone that would want me as a freind...
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    Anyone who treats me to ice cream and then drives way out of his way to bring me home when my car dies in the middle of nowhere (well the "Bermuda Triangle of Benton") after relentlessly teasing him about his Jeep and its tendency to shed its parts is a true friend.

    I thought what happened at ORCA stayed at ORCA? Here I went and disposed of the photographic evidence to protect the guilty....
    Any day caching is a good day.

    Agree with Bruce, if you don't know someone I am not sure I would accept a "friend" request. Maybe someone else on this Board knows more about that feature on GC.com.

    IIRC, the friends feature gives you the ability to get notifications of caches they have found as well as stats for them, and I think there was more planned for the feature in the future.
