I will be standing in the line to.
And for a social community like our board, it would be very handy.
They are all from the same area (local soccerclub board) and the change that someone that is allready a friend of a friend of mine is pretty big in our situation.
So if the board gives you suggestions for friends, purely based on the friends you allready have, it would not be worthless at all, might be that if it's a wordwide board and the friendship system is used to be digital-friends, but on our board the people that invite eachother to be a friend, are 8/10 times friends IRL.
Btw, for the people that have the request system in use, it would be logical to use it that way in the friends suggestions mod we want.
If someone wants to add me and I don't accept it, why bother to show friends of someone that I don't even want to be friends with in the first place.
Btw, a nice add-on would be to see the connections on the profile of the user you are watching, have seen that on a few dutch boards and also within a old phpb2 mod.
Just like this:
Friend connection: Your profile name -> Friends name, when you are on your friends page.
Friend connection: Your profile name -> Friends name (can be more that one offcourse) -> Name of the friends friend which is not your friend.
And the latest with more friends, if there are more friends linked to that person, so if I have 30 friends on the board and the user I'm not in friends with has 3 of my friends in his/her list, showing them the way as shown above.
