Still a persistent issue and a rather annoying one. As an MMO is meant to be a socially-driven game, I'd really like to see this issue fixed ASAP.

I've had problems adding people as friends if they are not online, sometimes it works sometimes I have to wait until they come back online to add them. I assume it's a bug that they are working on fixing.

This is a known bug that they are working on, and no it is not listed in the "known bugs post".

It is hit and miss as to if you will be able to add a character that is offline as a friend.

What???

You don't need to be online to mail items to other accounts. If you want to give something to your alt just stick them in the mail. They will get them instantly.

The only bug is that you can't add them as friends unless they are online, and I don't consider this a supper high priority, there are much bigger things to fix first.

I've run across this bug as well, and unfortunately the only work-around I've found (as others have mentioned) is making sure the other player is online.

As for adding alts to your list, I assume it's for the mailbox to autofill the name when sending gear and credits to your alts? If they're in the same guild as the character you are on, the autofill still works. If they're not in the same guild ... I hope you can remember how to spell your alt's names, because you'll be typing them in.

It'll get fixed. Annoying, I agree, but not something I personally see as a game-altering bug.

I was able to add all my alts to my friends list, obviously while they were offline, except one. My guess is that it is because the name is only three characters long.

Actually, that apostrophe can be a killer. I can currently add all of my alts on one server into each other's friends list, except for the one name that has an apostrophe. That one cannot be added to any of my other alts. (Nor could I send mail to him until a recent patch. Items or not, it all just vanished into space.)

I've been able to ad some people and some of my alts, and not others.

A friend had problems adding my main when I was offline, I could ad her on my main when she was offline but couldn't ad her on my alt when she was ofline, none of my alts were able to ad my main except for one. Neither names had special characters.

It's pretty much a shot in the dark if it'll work or not with someone that's offline
