How do you add a friend when they are not online?

Hello,

There used to be a box where you could enter the name of a friend and add them to your friends list even though they were not presently online. For the life of me I can't find that button any more. Has it been removed, or am I just going blind?
Thanks for your help.

Michaela

PS: I still use the old applet if that makes a difference.

I second that question. And could we maybe add a clickable link when puzzles are listed to the Author column? I believe it used to work that way. It made it easier to click through to a page of a certain author's puzzles rather than having to type it in above.

Michaela, this bookmark works pretty well in the mean time:

Just type in the username you're looking for at the end, then click on the "Add as friend" thingy.

It was removed because it was used abusively and we'd rather keep our users privacy safe. What mudshark suggested is good.

Each puzzle page has a small icon as seen in the following image:

Click on the icon to get into the author's profile page. Authors have extra lines on their page:
This user has created ### Griddlers ...
This user has created ### Triddlers ...
Clicking on the links Griddlers or Triddlers will show you all the puzzles created by that author.

Thanks Hagit, I never noticed that before! I seem to remember being able to click on the author from the main puzzle listing page, though. I'm not talking about sorting by author, which is a good tool. I'm talking about clicking directly on the author and getting a listing of their puzzles.
