Hey guys, is there a way to track or find a player by ID number?  I have a new "friend", one I did not invite or accept to my game.  Just appeared on my friend list at the 5PM day changeover.  Name of player is, get this, katiek.reinstlgame.  ID number is 729689.  I've checked the old list I used to keep and no one by that number is on it, so it's not an old friend trying to send me a message.  I've deleted that player, along with another one that just showed up out of the blue a couple of days ago.  That one is DAn - TQ, ID 635412.  When the Spring event started, my game had high scores on the new room, even though I hadn't yet played it, so it appears my game has been hijacked.  I've deleted both players for now, but am concerned that someone can just pop onto my friends list without being invited or accepted.

Thanks for any ideas you may have about this.

UPDATE:  I found the owner of 635412 under the name "Heather".  I had deleted that game because it had been red for more than a year, and she did not have an event room open.

I think it's Heather. (FluffyBee)

I did an advanced search.  First number did not get anything, but the second did.

Double check the player IDs.

I'm pretty sure you're right.  I sent a PM to Heather, but she hasn't responded yet.  The name on the account is so different from hers that I'm reluctant to just add it back.

I searched the 2 player IDs on the forum. They appear to both be hers.

i see that people are worried if they get a new friend they don't know.

does it matter? can they do harm?

thanks Azurina

A new Delphi friend? No they can't do anything really. If you have a paid account and restrict access to certain parts of your profile to just Friends. And then used those features ( photo album, journal, guest book) they could view it. But most do not even use them.

Other than that they don't have access to you email or private info.

And by the same token you do not have to friend everyone that requests it. Because this is a popular forum it is often targeted by spammers. I have 58 friend requests sitting in my profile unaccepted (you can reject - I collect such nonsense lol)
