    Not so.

    Currently the link to your profile for all users looks like this:

    https://vivaldi.net/unity/profile/456
    

    You can specify the profile permalink as "medium" and the link to your profile will be like this:

    Yes. But who is viva? Does it have to do with my permalink?

    He is un unknown (from me) user. It seems he don't define a permalink or it's broken so you have to reach https://vivaldi.net/unity/profile/viva/about to have some very basic details about him.
    He is friend with Jon and 3 french friends of mine. No more :huh:

    Welcome to the community, Viva!



  • @viva:

    Yes. But who is viva?

    It's me :silly:

    Nice to meet you! :)

    If you also care about Opera, especially presto versions, I think you can be a good friend for beginning a network. That's why I send you an invitation. Feel free to decline it.

    Friend request has already gone … Probably something messed here ;)

    Before discovering Vivaldi, I was active reader of my.opera.com forums & blogs and also some french forums.

    Are you French? Cool :)

    Now, it seems my place gonna be here, so …
    The beginning of a new good experience, I hope so ! :)



  • As far as I can see Viva just joined the site and asked to be a friend.
    It goes against the grain for anyone to refuse an abjact offer of friendship. If someone came up to you and asked if they could be friends what would you say?

    But I can't see any posts of any sort from Viva. I wish the website would find some other way of introducing people. What is wrong with the word "Favourite" or "Bookmarked"?

    That wouldn't require the bookmarked blogger to respond until they have got to know the poster.
    I suppose it is just another inherited, shortsighted facebookesque bug that these forums share.

    Now I have to accept, deny or ignore the sender. In every way I feel that is a discourtesy, either to them or for me. No offence Viva -or anyone else. Why should I have to worry about any of that when I would just naturally visit any site that had me bookmarked as a favourite?

    The basic fact is that with collecting charts and trying to analyse them, then posting what I think they mean, I have very little time at the moment.
    One day, when I have them all sorted and they bore me, I will be looking around wondering where the rest of my life went. But until then I am busy doing other things.

    If I get asked to become someone's friend and I look them up and see nothing, I am not going to accept (it would be like bookmarking an empty page) and then I will feel imposed upon by the damned forum for it being so pathetic. And annoyed that they will be hurt and all sorts of stupid unnecessary things.

    But suppose I accepted in the optimistic approach we should all have for each other?
    And then they post stuff that I disagree with?
    What do I do then?

    I wouldn't have any objection to them bookmarking me but I wouldn't necessarily want to be involved with such people either.

    Maybe I should report this "Friending" thing as a bug?



  • What is this business of karma?
    And why would I be interested in that?

    In Reddit it means that the poster is fond of posting cat videos. I mean…
    Cat videos?

    Looking at my avatar just now, made me wonder how far one could hurl a cat with a sling like mine. :evil: Let's see how much karma that's worth. ;)



  • I think you may be taking this whole business of friending someone (to coin a phrase) too seriously. If someone wants to be my friend fine. It's of no consequence one way or the other. The truth of the matter is, all of these so-called cyber friendships are relatively meaningless anyway. If you think back to other social sites, communities, forums in which you had friends, I'm sure you will discover that the majority were simply acquaintances with whom you shared very little in common. Accept/Reject/or Ignore but I wouldn't make an issue of it. Just my two cents. ;)

    I have to agree in part. I am a fusspot but when it comes to things like losing karma and online friends, it's stuff you didn't ask for and don't need.

    So why have it?
    (Nice voting BTW whoever.)
    (I wasn't really going to fling a cat with a sling, so can I have my karma back as I am going to the shops in a bit and it may be useful there, after all.)
