How do I remove a Buddy from my List? Thu, 03 September 2009 22:51
Hi all,

I was just looking through my Buddy List and discovered a buddy that I don't remember adding. Player5234...something, and I don't know who it is.

Normally I would just click on the little Trash Can icon to the far right, but it's not there! Confused I noticed that several of my buddies don't have that icon (not that I want to get any of my other buddies off the list), but does anyone know why that might be?

Thanks for the help.

Buddies who are automatically added to your buddy list are in fact your Facebook friends who connected their Facebook accounts with their Days of Wonder account - like you.

In other words, your Facebook friends are automatically your Days of Wonder Buddies Smile That's why there is no trash icon.

You should see a little Facebook icon in front of them, that takes you to their profile.

Enjoy the feature,

Yann

Thanks, Yann! That makes sense. Now I just have to figure out which of my Facebook friends is Player5234...something! Laughing

I really like the new Facebook linking system. Nice work! Cool

Quick question then, Yann,

Adding a player as a buddy lets you see if they are waiting in the lobby, browsing DOW pages, playing, observing, etc.

During the Nations Cup, I have a habit of adding my next opponent as a buddy: I can (hopefully) observe one of their games easily, and more importantly, know if they are in the lobby when the time for our match is due. I'm surely not the only person to do this.

But I don't want them as a buddy forever! So, is there a quick way of removing a buddy, who is not a 'real' buddy, when they and you both have a facebook account?

Thanks,
stemayf

Easy: in your buddy list, click on the little "f" icon on the right side of your buddy line. It will take you to his/her profile in Facebook. Cool

If this person is not one of your Facebook Friends, you won't have the problem. Only your Facebook friends are added automatically to your buddy list.

Thanks! It is still a work in progress. The Facebook Platform is not as easy thing to master! The bulk of the features are coded now. We even have a manual: http://blog.daysofwonder.com/dow-online-facebook/en/

Enjoy,

Hi again, Yann,

The player definitely was not one of my Facebook friends, yet I have the problem. What you said is not correct. Sorry to cause bother with this new feature, but I really don't want to end up with a list of non-buddies that I cannot remove just because they have a facebook account. And yet I find the feature of adding temporary buddies extremely useful as I mentioned in my first post.

Have you, or anyone else for that matter, encountered this slight problem or tried to repeat it? If you have a facebook account, you're very welcome to add me as a buddy and then see if you can remove me. Good luck Smile

If it does not work, then it's a bug. Crying or Very Sad
I'll look at it this week and keep you posted.

Thanks of the notice,

Yann

Hello everyone:

We fixed the bug today. Give it a try, it should be fine now: Buddies who are not your Facebook friends will now be removable from your Buddy List.

Thanks for reporting this.
