And if you run out of discussion to make, at least your friends have some. Not all discussions are interesting to everyone to answer. I say add everyone. If they dont post for someone reason they could be sick or a loved one sick. Just dont make fast, rash desisions.

No, I keep everyone on my list. Don't have the time to go through and have a clean out! lol. I guess I'm gone then. Don't spend a lot of time here these days and have trouble keeping up when I am here! lol still, I am here and you are not going to get rid of me that easily!

Yeah, I did notice that. What's wrong with you? Did you somehow manage to put rocks in your head? lol. No, you are a great member and always good for a laugh.

Hi xboxboy I guess as I received this on an email re discussions my friends have started I guess I am one of the 20% still there. I know I don't respond to all but some are subjects I really don't know about but glad you didn't delete me LOL. Think I ought to go through and do the same. Bit like a girls wardrobe 20% of the clothes get worn 80% of the time so I might sort that out too whilst I'm having a clear out eh! Ellie :D

i havent done that, since i only have like, 50 friends. im not really fond of adding people, i just let them add me. and regarding communication, are you referring to communication within the forum or communication by sending each other private messages? anyway, i dont mind having 200+ friends, since ill just let them sit on my profile page anyway! i dont think i really have to delete them unless i communicate with some peeps regularly and finding them is now getting difficult coz you have to scan such a long list.

No I wouldn't do this. It is too much work. The only way I will take someone off of my friends list is if they spam me. I am not here to make money.

Up until I read your discussion I had not even thought of doing that but now after reading you have inspired me to go and clean house. I know that most of mine are no longer here and I was away for six months so I guess that I should clear out and get ready for all the new ones on here.

You did right thing. We should elete all inactive friends. I have almost 20 to 25 friends in my list and some day i will also clean my friends list and will have only active friends. I am approving almost everyone request. But many of them are with low points and they are not much active. So need to do same act soon. Thanks

I think I'll detain all. If I delete it, I'll note to the friends I deleted to know and say with them the reason I deleted. Everybody want to know why myself deleted in the list friend of other's

i think you may have lost 80%, but its good what you did. there is no point in keeping in list the inactive friends and all. they are no way going to contribute to your discussions and all.so its good to get rid of them.

Wow! No I've never done anything that drastic! I don't think I even know how much communication I've had back and forth with my friends. I do get rid of the inactive ones...well eventually I do but sometimes I get behind by a lot. But good for you though, a smaller amount of friends will probably be a lot easier to keep track of and make things even more genuine.

Well, I have been here now for over a yr. and a half. I have seen many people come and go, and some of them were quite Good friends in here to boot. I am always going thru my Friends list, and removing people from time to time. I also am always going thru and seeing if there are people in there I might have missed in responding too as well. Don't worry too much, people come and go on here all of the time, and your True friends will follow you thru thick and thin, and for me, that is worth more than even the next dollar made right in here as well.

Well, I'm kinda new here so I don't really have that problem. Plus I don't simply add any Tom, D*ck ( ooh, I didn't know the full word was a violation even though it's just a name? ) or Harry to avoid getting into the mylot obesity you're talking about, lol!~

No, I must say I haven't taken this action yet. But I am glad I am still on your list of buddies. Phew! That was close.

Tee Hee....Yep I agree with Loudandproud and others that said if I did that there would be none left. Seriously, I don't do that because it is ME who tends to get caught up in the same discussion areas and not venturing around the boards, I am trying to reach out in different areas and start making up for it though. I am sorry if you deleted me xboxboy but I probably deserved it...

Never to that extreame. I do delete some off and on when they haven't been on or posted in months. Always makes me sad tho

I did the same thing a few days ago and deleted quite a lot of people, some because they were inactive, others because I never respond to their discussions as they don't interest me, and to be honest I deleted a couple because I wasn't that keen on them. Not really sure why I added them in the first place, must just have been in a good mood when I got their friends request. There are a couple still on there that I'm a bit undecided about but I'll wait and see how it goes. Thanks for not removing me - I know I'm not on here as much as some people are so I probably don't respond to a lot of your discussions because I miss them. I do try to respond if I see them though.

I cleared out two pages worth last week; I kept anyone that had logged in over the last 3 months. I did keep one or two that had been absent longer, but they are people I used to exchange messages with all the time when I was here before (I had an 8 month absence) in case they become active again.
