    I do not know if this is the right place to ask, but I was wondering when you type /friend list on The Hive, do the order of your friends appear in the order of which they were most recently online?

    Like if a player in your friends list is offline but closer to the top of the list, does this mean they were more recently active than someone lower down?
    This may be false or just a coincidence, but it seems that the order of my friends keep switching.

    I’m sorry this is quite a lame question

    I think it's ordered from when you added them

    It might be switching because the online friends will be placed above the offline ones, but they will still be in the order you added them, just grouped online/offline. If all your friends were offline they would constantly stay the order you added them oldest -> newest

    That's actually meant to happen! You can't change how friendlists order themselves. Surely it's better to have the online ones first?

    Plus, If you add someone as a "favorited" friend. They will appear on the top of your friends list no matter when you added them :)

    To clarify @bunny119's message, online players will always have priority and will show up on the top. Favorited online friends are prioritized even further. If a favorited friend is offline, it'll be displayed right under the last online friend (or, in the top of the offline friends).

    All this is regular behaviour!


    PS: You can check who's currently online by typing /friends online.
