    Request Mod to Auto-Add Friends to User on REgistration

    Hello:

    I just had a brain-storm of an idea hit me: What if there was an add-on fro vB 4.2.X that once a user jumped through all the registration hoops (create account > Confirm EMail Address > admin/mod approval (optional)) they would automatically have admin-defined user(s) or group(s) added to their friends. That was the original idea then as I was typing this another idea hit me for this that if a user enters a referrer in the box on the registration form or follows a referral link, the person who owns the link or who's ID was entered is also added to the friends list along with admin defined user(s) and/or group(s).

    I know I am dating myself when I say the idea is kind of like MySpasce that when a new user registers "tom" was always your first friend. Thus on all my customer facing sites there's usually an account called "help" or "sys" and that would be the first user friend along with maybe the organization's system manager and the referring user (if any).
    Thanks:
