The "Friends" tracker...
What do the symbols before usernames and communities mean? I have found no continuity between the check, green and yellow arrows and activity. (Someone who hasn't updated since August has a green arrow, but so does someone who just updated today. And then there's the yellow arrows...) Mystery mystery...

Actually, you're wrong.
The symbols -- unintuitive as they are -- read as follows:

You <- friend (exclusive) -- yellow arrow
You -> friend (exclusive) -- green arrow
You <-> friend (mutual) -- blue tick

What's so unintuitive about that? What is it, the colors? Well, I couldn't use red, and I figured yellow would be more appropriate (like a warning) that someone has added you and you haven't added them.. and I originally had the arrows going the other way, which made more sense to me, but I don't know... You got any better ideas? Personally, I'd like to see that whole interface scrapped for a nicer drag-and-drop interface with wells and icons and lists instead of a big table.

No, it's not the color of the arrows that I find unintuitive; It's the direction. To me, the arrows seem to point in the opposite of the directions that they should.

If you get time, you can use red, for like a red X version. We can apparently get status for a user now, and if they deleted their journal, I want to signify that rather than leaving it looking like an active friend.
