Ok .............. i can see this being a long long process .
I have a problem, that although i may know quite a few people, even people on here, i dont know there true names, and so i just know their nick name or puter name like.

is there a way that you can alter what name shows up? like if i wanted to be beetle and have my real name on the same profile is this possible? or do i have to make a complete new profile being beetle?

clear as mud?

yeah i think so too.:p

and how does it come up with all these names i could be interested in for adding as a friend? some interesting names....:p but i dont know them....

Top right of the main screen should say 'Settings' - hover over that and click 'Account Settings'. On the next screen you should be able to set a 'Username', and you can change this to whatever you like.

It automatically suggest people who might be friends of friends, or belong to the same groups and/or networks.

Have you joined the Press F1 group?

Email those who you know to be on there and get them to invite you as a friend.

Personally I don't and will not use crappy anti social sites. Social to me means getting together with friends face to face

I'm not sure how the contacts imports work, but never type in your email credentials in anything other than your email site/program. LinkedIn had a similar feature, where you type in your email address and password so they could import your contacts. I thought NO WAY IN HELL
