Default What do the symbols next to names at the bottom mean?

On the main homepage of CF there are a list of users who are online at the moment. Next to my name and David Lindon's name there are little + symbols. Don't know if this is just my end, but i was wondering what they represent.

I've just figured out that they indicate user who are on your 'buddy list'. Don't know what the buddy list is, what i'd use it for, or why my schizophrenia has lead me to adding myself. But they're you go.

Yup, somehow David and yourself ended up in your buddy list.

You must have been surfing CF in your sleep again.

Yep it means you have added some one to your buddy list. In 3.8 it also means you can look at your buddy's private albums.
