What is a 'Friend' ?

I received a message from the OSM world suggesting I add a name to “…my list of friends…”. I haven’t a clue what this means. What is a ‘friend’ in the OSM world ? I googled all over the site for a definition without success.

I just want to make sure I know the implications before going ahead and clicking on “Yes”.


It doesn’t do much, you get the “friend” in the friendslist on your user page www.openstreetmap.org/user/pacman and a shortcut to send messages to them.

I wish I had friends… :frowning:



thanks… :wink:
