    As the title says, I am searching on the member site but I don't see the option to add my friends. Is it possible?

    The friends functionality will become a big thing in the next build; you'll be able to see what your friends are doing and spectate them in races amongst other things.

    That's funny. I was trying to figure out how to do just that, this weekend. I finally got it figured out, so I'll be adding you all tonight.

    guess "oval" is the reason for no response :sleep:, anyway now that Bram is hooked to it we can expect iRacing league in fall, no surprise if it will be Indy car based or even F1 :f1:

    Would be quite sad if that would only depend on me. It's not that we have shot any initiative in the past from others. As always if there are people in our community that would like to step up to organize stuff we are just one pm away.

    When looking at race results, you can hover over the helmet graphic of each driver and a menu will pop up giving you the options of study, add friend, send PM or (can't remember the last one)...

    Release notes for tonight's build on the new Friends list options.

    ===============


    Online Status

    - We have added new functionality to help you to determine what your friends / studied / searched for drivers are doing on the service and to easily join their race session or join as a spectator.

    This new information is available in two places. First of all we have completely reworked the myRacing - myRacers page. This page now displays a sortable table showing your friend / studied racers along with checkboxes to filter the display. There is an online/offline indicator. If the indicator is green it means that the member has been online within the last 2 hours. If the indicator is red we will display the time of their last login. If a member is currently registered for a session you will see details of their session. If the session is joinable for either racing or watching you can do so from this page.

    In order to implement this feature with acceptable performance we now limit your number of friends and studied to be a maximum of 50 each.

    - A new myRacers popup is always available just to the left of your iRating towards the top right of the members site UI. A label dynamically updates to display a total of how many of your friends + studied racers are currently online. Mousing over this label will display a list of your online drivers. An icon to the left of each driver's helmet will indicate if you can join their session either as a driver or spectator.

    - There is a new setting on the general tab of the settings panel that enables you to hide your online status from other members. At this time this is a simple toggle on/off. If you decide to hide your status, people who have you on their friends or studied list or search for your information will see see "Member information is private" next to your name on the "My racers" page.

    - There is a new label beneath the iRacing logo on the top left of the member’s site UI that dynamically updates to display the total number of unique iRacers who have been online in the last 2 hours.
