Leave a legacy.

Follow members as well as following posts

I have just joined the community this evening and I was surprised to find that there isn't a button to follow other Giffgaff members.

I found the button to follow posts and receive updates when anyone else comments on that thread or reacts to your initial post but I couldn't see anyway to follow members who I found knowledgeable. It seems the logical next step from viewing members profiles to be able to follow them, similar to adding friends.

So I followed the advice and researched the community and labs for the suggestion, I found one post which described my idea.....

However, it seems that the post may be misinformed as I asked a fellow member in the community forum and apparently there is no facility to do this.

It's 1. Supporting your network 2. Supporting others, with phone issues or whatever you like to talk about. It's about our group connecting. You can be one of the ones that presses the no button. Easy lol

Hey carlc27 thanks for your comment, however it was intended to be a facility to follow helpful members, so theoretically those members who are consistently helpful would not, I would imagine, find it stalkerish in any way, rather be flattered to be considered such an important asset to the community.

I think if you look you are thanking the same person twice, erzse49 erzse08 unlikely it is two different people.
