Today, Qlockwork and his talented team rolled out a big enhancement to Quibblo that so many of you have been asking for: More top friends!

As a result of the change, everyone’s top friends list has increased from 5 to 12.

Since we can’t read your minds, however, you’ll have to edit your top friends list with your own choices. Here are simple instructions:

  • First, clear your browser cache so that your Top Friends section is laid out similarly to the one shown on the right.
  • Next, go through Quibblo and write down the usernames (not the nicknames) of your top friends.
  • Go to your profile page and click on the “Edit My Top Friends” link.
  • Navigate your friends list and find the username of a new friend you want to add to your top friends list.

    Note: Your friends list is now ordered by username. If a friend has added a nickname, you can find their username by mousing over their thumbnail image and looking at the bottom left of your browser. For those of you with hundreds of friends, you might find it easier to navigate your friends list by changing the “page” number in the address bar and clicking “Enter”:

  • Once you find the friend you are looking for, drag their thumbnail into the orange boxes, making sure you don’t bump out an existing top friend you want to keep.
  • Click the “Save Current Selection” button and continue finding your next top friend.

In the future, we’d like to add a search box for finding friends quickly, but we wanted to roll this feature out sooner rather than later. Enjoy!

Now head over to Qlockwork’s profile page and let him you know how much you appreciate his work!
