Friend's List Problems

Made a new friend tonight on Krokotopia at about 2345 CDT. When I go to other worlds, they are not on my friend's list. They can send me text messages but I cannot reply due to this. When I went back to Krokotopia, they reappeared back on my friends' list again.

Please advise.

I, too, have had friends list difficulties, in that friends who appear on my list are not recognized. For example, I ask to add someone as a friend and that person accepts. I then attempt to port to them and get a message that says the person is not on my friends list. However, I am able to chat with them across the spiral. What gives? I have lost friends because of this issue on all three of my wizards.

It's a matter of what level they are and such. I find that the friends that I have can not port to me if they are not on the same quest as me or have not completed the quest that I am on. Example 1: I have a friend on my list that can not get into Kroktopia because they are not a subscriber. Example 2: I have friends that are subscribers that can get into Krokotopia but can not port to me while I am in the Tomb of Storms because they have not finished the quest in the KrokoSphinx yet just as some of my friends (also subscribers) are as far as in the world of Marleybone that I can not port to because I have not unlocked that world yet in my own quests.

I found that the exception to these are Trials or Subscribers can port to anyone within Wizard City World Limits no matter what level they are.

Hope this helps,

Is this a know bug and do the professors know about it? This is a crippling bug and makes it extremely difficult to do thing such as farm Malistaire. I have had on numerous occasions had people ready to do him and can not do it because they can not port to me inside. It has nothing to do with levels or quests because I have had people level fifty who have already beaten Malistire and completed the quest lines and they can not port to me anywhere so this is not a feature of the game, obviously. Why have we not heard something about this from the professors? This is a HUGE bug that demands immediate attention.

Actually, sorry to say but even AFTER the update I still had a problem. I thought that everything would be fixed, but it wasn't. I was on my ice wizard in Colosolous Boulevard yesterday. I opened up my friends list. Everything there was normal and all my friends were there. But when I clicked on my friend Scarlet MoonHeart, it came up like usual but only her picture. Her name wasn't there. Also, I could only press "Add to Friends List" or "Ignore". I pressed add to friends list, and it asked me if I wanted to add her and I clicked yes. Nothing happened. Then I exited out of my list and opened it up again. Her name was highlighted, and when I clicked on it again the problem continued. I then tried to click on another friend, but the exact same thing happened where I could only see their picture and not their name.

I was terrified, thinking that I had lost my friends that were online. But then I teleported to the Commons, and it was magically fixed. Even though it was fixed after I teleported, I think it was still an issue and should be looked into. Has anyone else had the same problem after the update?

I'm having problems to but for me it's the friends list it's self. I had updated my computer and now rather then seeing a picture of my friends it's back to the pencil pictures of everyone. Which also means I can't see there info. If anyone knows how I can fix this can you please let me know. It is driving me nuts.
Thanks
