Since Selby uses Scenegate and I use Firestorm, his experience differing from mine (and in fact my experience differing from mine) may mean this issue is erratic... the worst kind. :evil:

Hi Snoots,

I suggest you try this with newly created alts on both grids so that no server-side or viewer-side caching will come into play.

....sooo tired of testing... fingers...growing weak... eyes blurring....

Okay, I didn't create new avatars (would be a hassle) but I did go to DigiWorldz and had a totally unknown avatar FRIEND me as a test. So friend caching was bypassed.

Friending worked without a hitch. He mentioned something as a possibility: that sometimes there may be a latency / packet loss issue between grids that may cause loss of friendship during HG transfer. That seems to make sense, as all the testing I did yesterday and today worked fine... but on prior day and days before, hasn't worked.

Or it could simply be that when the avatar returns to their home grid, they MISS the incoming message asking them to verify the friend request. Hard to say.

I think there is still a possibility of a core bug, but no way to identify it until it happens again... and no telling when that may be. At this time, both friends requests and inter-grid IMs seem to be working okay. If in the future they don't, I'll try to track why.
