So, this is what happens. I receive a request. Looking at it, I then click the name of the individual, which takes me to that person's personal pages. If there's a blog, typically this system defaults to the blog page. OK, that's a good place to start, what you write in your blog says something about you. Then, I'll click your "About" page. That gives me a bit more of a handle on who you might be. If you've posted something to the forums, that helps me "know" you a bit better too.
Here lately, a couple of "friend requests" have been short on details. I "friended" the last one in spite of this, but I may have to re-think that later.
If you're short on details, I'll try to PM you, maybe you'll respond.
The last few friend requests had no blogs, no forum posts, and such a short "about" page that I have to wonder who the person is. After today, I'll try a PM in such cases and give it a few days before making a decision, but---- if I don't know you, how can I "friend" you?
