New feature: My Friends
Shortly after the new site was launched, hitokiri in Moscow contacted me to suggest that I add a feature to make it easier for him to keep track of his fellow doublebrick members' collections here on Brickset. While it's always been possible to see them via individual members profiles, there wasn't an easy way of doing so without lots of clicking around.
So, my solution to this is a new tab: 'My Friends' . On this page you can search the Brickset user database, find your friends then mark them so they appear in your list of friends. Once in the list you can click on links to view their reviews, their collection or thier wants list. You can also see who has marked you as a friend.
This is an opt-in system: if you want people to know more about you, such as your location and real name, so you can be found in the list, you'll need to enter information in your profile and if you want to share your collection with others, tick the 'Allow Brickset users to view my collection' box at the bottom.
I've also added some new fields to the profile page allowing you to enter the URLs of your Brickshelf, flickr and MOCPages galleries.
I hope you find this useful. As usual your feedback will be appreciated.
