Do you expect them to PM you? Write in your GB? How often?

Do you just make and accept buddy requests as an acknowledgement of "I like you" without any expectation of much additional interaction?

I sometimes receive buddy requests and I always feel a bit awkward about them.

If it's someone I honestly can't recall who they are, I don't accept.

If it's someone I've had some brief interaction with largely related to my role as mod, I usually don't accept.

If it's someone I've had a fair amount of interaction with in forums or who I've seen post a fair bit and like ...

well, sometimes I accept and sometimes I don't and either way I feel guilty.

Because due to both time available and preference I mostly stay connected with CR people through the forums. I'm a very bad buddy if you want someone to chat with in gb or privately.

Right now I have 6 pending buddy requests. I'd feel bad rejecting them--last I checked, I liked all of them. But I feel like I might be letting folks down by accepting and then having nothing change in our CR-relationship.

Do any of you share this problem? What do you expect/want from your CR buddies. How do you decide who to accept and who to reject?

Well I joined Crunchyroll several years ago now... And I really only used it to watch anime. It was only recently I started going on the forums and meeting others of the community, but it just felt kind of lonely. So I feel like having buddies just helps me stay connected even if there isn't much interaction. It drags me deeper into the community that I used to not feel a part of.

For me I feel like buddies should at least talk to each other once in a while, if not more. though it varies depending on peoples schedules. Though I do love to talk to people though guestbook or pm, so the more you talk to me the better!! Though half of the friends on my list I dont talk to anymore because they dont come on the site....but I dont want to delete them...

My CR buddies are my harem of virtual online imoutos. I expect love and adoration at every turn. In return I shower them with my cuddles, my onii chan like skills, and various other implements of love. Yes, Yes....being an imouto is such hard work, but the reward reap themselves. You see, I have the love force of a BILLION onii chans, and you cannot handle me at full amount. You pitiless fools, this isn't even my final form. My final form is too onii chan to handle, and imoutos exposed to it go crazy from the onii chan and explode in a mass of love spasms.

Have to admit, before I became a mod, I probably only had 1-2 buddies. I'm.. not the most sociable person in general. Even now, most of my buddies are other mods, with a few others as well. For me, the buddy list are folks I do talk to, at least virtually, or had some fun interaction with on the forums, probably about cosplay or prop making.

I've probably PM'd with my buddies (if not talked in other ways), but guest book.. not so much. Guess it's just not my thing for the most part, unless someone else initiates. I do try to respond there, but most of the people who GB me are folks I talk with in other ways, too, so conversations shift mediums frequently.

As for pending requests.. some of mine are trolls, trying to buddy me for reasons other than friendship, some are like yours, folks I might've briefly interacted with on the forums, but I don't know well or anything. Looks like I've got 55 pending at the moment, but I don't reject them because of the number of troll requests I get, so leave them around just to prevent another from each of those accounts.

Not a whole lot, they are for all I know a figment of my imagination. They are just people in the virtual thing called the internet. They haven't fought beside me in Afghanistan, they are to the best of my knowledge all civilians. Some of them are good people, or at the very least interesting. I mean really expecting anything out of them seems odd if you ask me.

My cr buddies are a list of people I expect to speak to in pms. outside of that, I use the forums for communication.

I don't like guest books and would prefer not to have it wasting a part of my profile screen.

I don't have any demands of my cr buddies and there's no easy way for them to let me down.

I avoid openly having anything to do with mods because I don't think it's appropriate.

I reject 90% of buddy requests these days.

Do any of you share this problem? Kinda sorta. Sometimes I feel bad accepting.

What do you expect/want from your CR buddies? Nothing really, if they wanna talk, I'll talk if I'm in the right mood. If I'm not in the mood I'll probably give half-assed replies and that's something I hate to do. So some of the times I don't reply.

How do you decide who to accept and who to reject? If we talked on the forums and I liked them I accept, I reject strangers most of the time.

Overall I think I'm a horrible buddy to have since I hate the lack of fluidity of the conversations and emotion in text and it greatly influences my ability to reply to my buddies the way I would like to. Not to mention I get easily distracted when I get on a computer.

I expect them to talk to me at least every once in a while. I don't see the point in adding but never talking.

And I accept any buddy request.

I only send buddy requests to people who I deem are cool.
If we don't gb chat or pm each other, it's okay with me. We don't have to talk. I don't expect anything at all.
More than half of the people I have as buddies don't even talk to me lol. I still kept some of them there though.
If you reject my buddy request, that's fine too. I don't get offended with stuff like this.

For anyone who does add me, I accept all of them.
Later, I'll end up deleting them if I don't see them being active in their account or I see their account being abandoned.

Nothing. Just hope they be a friend.

I have a hard time being social so I don't add people, I think on my other account I sent maybe two requests. This account only has 3 buddies and I only talk to one them.

I change forums too much to expect much from anyone. The only reason I've stayed here is because of the anime.

I don't really expect to make friends on forums but sometimes it happens.
