Quick tut to help with the friend bug!

If you're needing to remove and add friends to validate them without friending buttons—especially if you have large lists—here's a quick thing that should save you a lot of time if you don't already have a similar method. ♥

Step 1: Go to your profile on whichever account you're working on (and make sure you're signed into the right one.) Highlight and copy the people you have friended.

Step 2: Paste it into Notepad or equivalent, then run a Replace All to change each comma to <br> instead.

Step 3: Stick it in here, preview, and copy your line-broken list.

Step 4: Textmechanic.com!

(You might not actually need to remove them first; if anyone knows for sure, feel free to comment and lmk. Either way, if not, you can just skip this and only do 'friend add' instead!)

Step 5: Paste into the Admin Console.

Step 6: Repeat Steps 4 and 5 to re-add your friends, and you're all done! Six steps sounds like a lot, but this all takes about a minute or two. I hope this helps some of you while we get back into the swing of things!
