    Most of you are aware of the dashboard feature that allows you to view friends of friends. For those who don't know about it: all you need to do is log on to the 360 dashboard, select a friend and then "View Friends", whereupon you will see a full list of your friend's friends.

    Considering COD4's popularity here on the forums, and following on from Munkey Boy's sterling work with the "AVForums Halo 3" tag, I've set up a gamertag for COD4 players to take advantage of. Surprisingly, this one is called "AV Forums COD 4". If you are a regular COD4 player and are quite happy to get pestered by people wanting to join up for some AVF matches, send a FR to the above tag, and then you'll be able to access its friends list to see who's playing - we should have full teams of AVFers in no time!

    Due to the popularity of COD4 on the forums, the "AV Forums COD 4" friends list has already filled up, so I have created a second gamertag, "AV Forums COD". All requests from 14 Jan 08 should be sent to this gamertag - the other one is now full and will probably just bounce back any requests.

    My understanding of the "View Friends of Friends" feature was that it was possible to view the friends of friends of friends, and so on...sort of a "six degrees of separation" across all of Xbox Live. Unfortunately, that's not the case. I've linked the two gamertags "AV Forums COD 4" and "AV Forums COD", but I'm afraid nobody will be able to see the friends on the linked gamertag, because you can only see one friends list "generation" beyond your own, not two. Any ideas on a way around this would be appreciated.

    PLEASE READ THIS BIT: Requests for me to "add you" will most likely be ignored. Sorry, but I don't have the time and I'm getting tired of having to repeat this to every person who asks to be added to the list. If you want your name on the AV Forums COD friends list, send a FR to AV Forums COD, and I'll accept it as long as I can confirm you're a member of AVF. If I can't confirm you're a member of AVF, I'll ask you to post confirmation in this thread. Thanks. :smashin:

    HOW TO USE THE FEATURE ONCE YOU'VE JOINED
    If you just want to play a few games with AVF people, you can either

    (a) set up a party in your COD4 lobby and send out invites to people on the friends list to join you, or
    (b) find people on the friends list who have the "joinable" arrow next to their names and select "join session in progress".

    Cheers,

    kav

    Excellent! Added :smashin:

    (Please don't be offended if anyone falls off my friends list, am just about to do a sweep, but between this, the clan tag and the Halo 3 tag I intend to keep playing with you all. Ta)

    How do you set up a 2nd gamertag. Do you need to get a 2nd xl sub?

    Accepted all except: Hengst07, BrashEvilash1, Ify23 and DarthQuack.

    Don't worry guys, nothing personal, I just don't recongise you from Live or the forums! Can each of you just post here to confirm that you are AVF members? Sorry if that sounds pedantic, but it seems to have worked well for Munkey Boy on the Halo tag by keeping the list restricted to users from the forums. Once I know you're from here I'll accept the requests.

    I've updated the first post to mention this.

    Cheers! :thumbsup:

    Nice one lads, keep the FRs coming in. I won't be around much today - the inconsiderate :censored: are making me work, it's ridiculous - but I'll accept them when I get home tonight.

    Good going so far, there's already about 20 people on there.
