In Gielinor, having friends can come in handy. It's no wonder: making friends from all over the world is fun and exciting. To help you manage your friends, you have been given a friends list and an ignore list on the same tab of your side interface.
Click on the green figure standing in front of the red figure on your side interface. This will, by default, bring up your friends list, but your ignore list can also be accessed from this tab.
The friends list allows you to keep in contact with the friends you make in Gielinor. Note that this also tells you which world you are in, making it easier to arrange a meeting with your friends in-game.
To add a friend to your list, click on the yellow button with a '+' on it in the top-left of the interface, and type in the name of the person you want to add. You can also add a friend by right-clicking their name in the chatbox and selecting the appropriate option.
After you have added a person to your friends list you will be informed whenever your friend logs in or out of Gielinor (unless their privacy settings block this - see below). Players on your list who are currently playing on the same world as you are shown in green, people who are playing but on a different world from yourself are shown in yellow, and players who are not currently playing are shown in red.
Right-clicking a name will bring up a menu allowing you to perform several options:
Click on the 'Show Ignore' dot in the bottom-right of your friends list to access your ignore list (see right for the 'Show Ignore' dot).
If there is a particular player who you do not wish to receive messages from, put their name on this list. You will not be able to see any messages this player sends via any Chat method, and they will be unable to join your Friends Chat. They will still see you as online on their Friends list if you have private chat on, but you will not see any messages received by them.
To do this, click on the yellow button at the top-left of the interface which is marked with a '+' icon, and enter the name of the person that you wish to block.
You can also add players to your ignore list by right-clicking their name in the chatbox and selecting the appropriate option.
To remove someone from the list, click the yellow button at the top-left of the interface which is marked with a '-' icon, and type in the name of the person that you want to remove. Alternatively, you can right-click the player you wish to remover from this list and select "Remove [player]".
