Random Friend Invites

47 replies 407 views Edited Apr 15, 2013

I don't like em'! I get them quite often. Please just send a corresponding message along with the invite at the very least outlining if I played a game with you or something. Anyone else get annoyed by this or is it just me? :smileyvery-happy:

You can simply delete them if you don't like someone sending you friend invites.

All valid.  Just block them.  I agree though, unless there is a message, or at least a title, I usually don;t except, unless I recognize them from here.  Even then, I question them.

I'm not sure annoyed is the right word, but it's interesting you posted this now because between turning my PS3 off last night & turning it on again around an hour ago I had 6 random friend requests, I deleted all of them without further enquiry.

 

To be honest they don't annoy me, but I do wonder where they found me or chose me, & if they want to add me at least put something in the text body area like 'saw you on the Forums, saw you playing blah blah game' etc, know what I mean.

 

I'm sure I've annoyed some by not accepting their requests, but at least let me know where you found me or why you want to add me!

If random friend requests bother you, change the "Privacy Settings" on your PS3. Go to "Account Managment". Scroll down to "Privacy Settings". Enter your password. Then you can set it so that you receive Friend Requests or Messages from "Anyone" or  "Friends of friends" or you can receive Friend Requests or Messages from "Nobody"

I just add them.  Most of the time they delete me themselves because I don't play Call of Duty or don't have DLC to a particular game.  works better for me.

I get on average 4 to 6 a day... yes anoying.  Completely blind request, not "hey we met in this game", or "I know you from here", just blank blind request.  The best ones are when they insist I'm someone they know and keep sending request repeatedly.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who gets a little irritated. Wouldn't mind em' one bit though if they put a little more effort into the request with some information. :smileyvery-happy:
