What is the purpose of Following Members? I mean, how can I leverage that feature?

Is there a view or page that lists all/new comments made by my followed friends or one for their threads/posts?

That is where I learned you wouldn't lead me astray. Hey, who followed who? I seem to remember being out in front most of the time :)

Sorry guys, I am a slacker admin. There are some functions of following that are not really in use here on BCP. First, the list of online members on the sidebar is supposed to just be a list of names. The little avatars usually only happens to followed members, but I didn't like that so I modified that code to show faces for all.

Second, there is a Recent Activity function that shows everything people do on the forum. It's basically a timeline of who liked what and who commented on what. I think if you have followed members it puts them in a separate or otherwise highlighted feed. I thought that was all pretty stupid though, so I cut it out. Do you really need to know what everyone else likes and comments on?

So basically, as far as I can tell, the follow function really doesn't do much.

Well, I was basically hoping for a page or function that shows what my followed people are doing. Posts, comments, etc. Help me separate wheat from chaff. Why else follow someone?

I hear ya. Right now, there maybe isn't really a reason to follow someone. I'll admit, I follow no one, simply because it bothered me to have them separated in the sidebar. And I try to read the whole site anyway. I'm going to put this in the to-do bin for next time I have some time to do some improvements. I'm a bit overwhelmed with non-BCP stuff right now. :(
