My friend tells me that when he looks at the 'users online section', that my user name has a '+' at the end of it. (blue_neon+). Just wondering what this means?

Thanks

It means he's added you as a buddy to his list of buddies on bikeforums.

The buddy list is used to keep track of the friends you have made on this forum. By going to your "My vB Home", you'll be able to see which of your friends are currently online, and be able to send them a private message. Adding people to your buddy list also allow you to send private messages to multiple forum members at the same time. You may add any member of the forums to your buddy list by clicking this button in a member's posts.

Pretty funny. I use the buddy list. It helps me to find people without having to look.

too much clicking around, but it seems like a good idea, never really looked into it before.
