    The link doesn't contain any user information. It's genuine for the list of the player who is logged in when using it.

    Alosso is correct Olive, the link only accesses the block list of the logged in user. Everyone who clicks the link sees their own block list, no one elses. You can test it by signing out of WGT.com, then clicking the link, it won't work then.

    This is interesting.

    I also have at least one person on my friends list that stubbornly refuses to be removed no matter how many times I try. It's not personal, I just prefer keep my friends list lean with only active contacts on it. However, blocking them in order to force removal feels more unfriendly than I'm comfortable with, so I was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to unblock them again afterwards without finding them magically reinstated on my friends list?

    Also, I have a few players on my friends list that I already deleted, but still show up. When I go to their profile only the 'Add As Friend' button shows, not the 'Remove Friend' one. I'm assuming the same advice still applies?

    I haven't contacted WGT about this yet because quite frankly it's nothing more than a minor niggle, but asking questions here is often more productive anyway!

    Nigel.

    I believe that is the whole procedure Nigel, block them to remove the sticky friends, then once they're gone, unblock them.

    This friends thing is really messed up. I have friends whose pictures aren't in my list, and my picture isn't in theirs, and there is at least one who isn't a friend but my picture is on their profile and theirs is on mine, lol.

    You have too many for the software, 294.

    The limit for a working friends list is 255 = 2^^8 -1, theoretically. Some modesty may be advisable, 250 or so...

    Yes, I realise that alosso. I'm not 100% sure my list functioned correctly even when it was below the magic number, so I just don't care about it anymore, sorry.

    ⇩ EDIT : Thanks Nigel, good to know it still works.  ; ) ⇩

    Thanks Scott.

    Blocked 'em then immediately unblocked 'em and now they're off the list.

    Cheers.

    I also had this issue, when I decided to trim down my list. But only when I tried it via WGT profile pages. They were removed normally, without having to block them, when I did it via the launcher.

    ...if only the list wasn't curtailed at 255.  : (
