I think it would be a great if XenForo had an option to switch between the current follow/followers system and a whole new friend system. The reason being is that the current system may work fine for more social type sites but many forum users may find the whole follow system confusing and thats one of the reasons I think this should be implemented. We currently have XenForo on one of our active forums and a lot of people are getting confused and/or dislike the follow system. Also, members do not like how they have little control over who follows them, there is no approval or acceptance like how it would be with a friendship system and unfortunately if this cannot be done then we will have to change software because our members needs have to come first, I hope that you guys do this or something like this. Thank you.
