no.of buddies not same

I have 10 people in my buddy list. If I click on MY user name while on the All Message Boards screen...it shows me 6...
I know the 4 that are not showing have been requested more that 24 hours ago....
What gives?
My overall opinion of the new site is slowly that of disappointment....

    Hi, this is just the default settings for many of the Spine-Health displays. For the Buddy List while you are just viewing your account is 6 (Just like the total number of online users is set at limited to 10).
    This is done so as to not overflow any one page display.

    Your accurate buddylist is managed by clicking on My Buddies on the Forum Menu bar.

    I would like to hear more about your reasons for disappointment in the new forum site. The only way that problems/concerns be addressed is if we have specifics. If you would rather document that in a message, please do so or elaborate in a post.

  • Ron, Thanks for your response. One of the disappointments is that if I know 5 user names, and I want to request them as buddies...they only way I have found to do that is by digging thru posts, finding one from them then using the buddy icon to accomplish this. I know there were some more, but pain and memory functions have been challenged lately. I will try to remember, and make mention.
