What is a Friend?
A Friend is a user you have friended by adding them to your Friends list. Having Friends gives you a link to your Friends' profiles from your profile. It also allows you to compare high scores in flash games using the Armor Games high score system.

How do I add a Friend?
You can add another user to your friends list by clicking the (Add Friend) button on their profile. This will only add them to your Friends list and will not send a request to them. They will have to add you to their own Friends list.

How do I search for or find a Friend?
You can't. There is no way to search for other users on this version of Armor Games. You will need to know their full username or contact them again.

How will I get to their profile to add them?

1.) If you know their exact username, you can go directly to their profile using

http://armorgames.com/user/USERNAMEHERE

Type in their exact username where it says USERNAMEHERE. For example,

will go to my profile.

2.) If you do not know their username, you will need to try to contact the user.

a. If you met them on a multiplayer game you can try to find them again in that same game. If you cannot find them, try to look through the game's comments to see if they may have made a comment. If they have made a comment, you can click on their username to go directly to their profile. However, not everyone you meet in a multiplayer is playing from Armor Games, so they may not have an Armor Games account.

b. If you know them in real life or from somewhere else, you can try to get them to tell you their exact username. You can also have them post on your thread in this forum. if they post on the forum, you can click on their username to get to their profile.

Hopefully this hasn't been too inconvenient and has helped you in getting to a friend's profile to add them, so you don't forget who they are!

This is much like a sticky you just locked and unstickied. What's different about this from the previous how to friend sticky? Also, if there is little or no difference, why was a new sticky made?

He added more to the A section and there isn't an edit post button, so the only way to update it is to create a new thread.

The search bar in AG3 will search for games and users better. If you only know part of their username then it'll show everyone with that. Example: Someone wants to find my profile but they don't know my full username, they only know the first part - they search Ghost and it'll show every account with Ghost in the username.

The best way to find a friend (Right now on AG v2) is to contact them and ask them their username and put it in the taskbar after www.armorgames.com/user/theirusernamehere
In the theirusername part put their username (the one you got from them!) and it will take you to their page. Make sure to use correct punctuation capitalization and spelling otherwise, who knows what will happen? If this doesn't work, ask them to comment on a game that you are on, and refresh the page and click on their comment and you will be for surely (is that a word? i don't know.)taken to their page.Hit the friend button!*acheivement theme song plays* You have a new Friend! Now go play some Armor Games!

there IS a way to search friends but it might take some time. All you have to do is go to

http://armorgames.com/friends

you will still need to know their username.
