Hm, I for myself prefer gaming while being in-game. I don't feel the need to talk while sorting ponies or traits (and while the system breaks down every once in a while). ^.^
When I want to talk, I come to the forum. I'm simply no multi-tasker. When I game, I game. When I talk, I talk. I hate doing many things at once. - And I usually only add people to my friends list who are active here in the forum as well 'cause I have the feeling that they are around more regulary. Not to mention that I don't see any benefit in having a friends list on Poneyvallée at all... you can't even see the online-status (anymore).
