Hello everyone! Today, I am going to inform you on an improvement I would like to see in the Minecraft community.

First off, I always thought of this when I first started playing Minecraft, back in 2011, I thought it would be amazing if Minecraft had it's very own 'Friends List', so you could join servers that have your friends on them. I had the idea that since there's a list of all the names in the map you're in when you press 'Tab', you could click on one of the names, and have an 'Add Friend' button, or something like that.

There could be a friend icon in the setting area when you press 'Esc', and it would show up your list of friends, it could say if they were online or offline, and a 'Join Server' button if it's a public server, for example:

1) Press esc
2) Press 'Friends List'
3) Find designated friend
4) Press on them, click 'Join Server'
5) Join the server they are in

Now, some of you might be thinking "The famous Minecrafters will get spammed with Friend Requests!!!" Yes, that could happen, but I know from personal experience on somewhere like Hypixel, if there is a famous Staff, Youtuber, ect, there name is highlighted, so if you clicked on them in the tab area there wouldn't be an 'Add Friend' button.

Also, possibly there could be an option in the setting to turn Friend Requests off, so you wouldn't get notifications.

There are some holes in this idea, some people might love it, and some might hate it. I just think it would be useful to have for those moments when you meet someone awesome, and you may never get to see them again. It's happened to me plenty of times.
- Side note, I know that there are mods for this, or upcoming mods, I mean like with an actual update.

honestly this would be the best thing to happen since beta 1.4
Imagine finding out if your old friends still play the game.

This is a great idea!
How hard isn't it to find old friends from servers, and you do not know where they play?
It would be so interesting! Though it would be even easier for stalkers :/

Great idea, diamonds from me :)

I think that's a very nice idea. And a well designed GUI, too! (graphical user interface, for you non-programmers out there)

I did a post like this 11 months ago called "Minecraft Friends List Minedea!"
Check it out: www.planetminecraft.com/blog/minecraft-friends-list-minedea-high-quality/
The idea of friends list is really good but they will never do it.

I think this is awesome i also think minecraft should start feature voice over like most xbox games rather than having to have multiple windows open at once you can do it through minecraft with the option to turn it off and mute people, keep the chat for players that dont have a mic, also feature custom channels so admins have there own room....i get sick of people trying to call me on skype or if im in mumble and having to close it down because i lag or it just saves having multiple programs running.

for give me if there are plugins that do this or if there is ever aplan to have this lol

Alas! Someone with a great idea who shares with with the community! I think that if you want to add someone, roll over their name in 'tab' and a green plus sign will appear. For those youtubers, there could be an 'ignore' or 'block' (No pun intended) button. If you wanted to start small, though, you could program a command like ./friend add and a bunch of other 'friend' commands. Then, whenever someone joins the server, it will say:
Hello *User*
Welcome to the *server name* server!
You have*Number* friends online!
make more friends by using the ./friend command.

Haha! Exactly, it would be great if this was somehow recognized by Mojang.

It would have to be something like .friend or -friend, because it could conflict with a plugin the server might have if you use /friend. But anyways, I think it would be better if you just had a friend menu on the main screen, so right when you login you see on the right or left your friends list, sorta like Steam, and you can choose to join em or not.
