To add a person as a "buddy" go to their Profile by looking them up on the "User List" or clicking their name shown on the left when they author a post.

In the other person's Profile, click on the text link, "Add to UBB Buddies" (UBB is the maker of the software we use and the originator of the UBB forum code language)
