Buddies

Buddies in FrogPlay are people that you know that you may wish to compete against (in multiplayer games or in a mini version of a Champions League). Buddies are not like ‘friending’ on social network sites. Your Buddies have to be people you really know as you both have to enter your buddy codes for it to link you. 

To access your Buddies from the Student Room, click the pictures on the wall on your desk.

Adding a Buddy

1. Select "+ add a new buddy". You can be Buddies with other students or any of your teachers.


2. You will then be shown your own special code to tell your friend and be asked to type 
in the one your friend gives you. Though they don’t have to be typed in at exactly the same time, they should be entered reasonably close together to avoid them timing out.

3. When you have entered your friend’s code, click "Add Buddy". The link is now made
and you will both receive a notification to say you are linked as Buddies.

Note : The Buddy system is very secure as both sides of the code must be entered to
create the link. If only one person enters the code or if one person shares someone
else’s code with others, there is no link formed. Think of it like Bluetooth pairing – both
sides must perform an action to make a link. If one person removes a buddy, the link is
lost but no messages are sent to inform the other person.

Sharing with Your Buddy

When you have a buddy you have different ways to share interactions. The most common ways is to ‘Tell Your Buddies’ at the end of a game.

Whenever you complete any game and set a score/make progress towards an achievement you will have the option to ‘Tell your buddies’.

Click the"Tell your buddies" button to send them a notification to tell them how well you are doing to try to inspire some friendly competition.

You can see the stream of notifications between you and any of your buddies in the Buddies
section.

Simply click on one of your Buddies names to see the updates they have sent you.

Note: Click on your own name and you will see ALL of the notifications stream for your own
use in the system so far.

You can also interact with your Buddies via the Leaderboard. When you have Buddies, you can filter to show either just your school OR just your buddies.

This means you can have a private league table for just your group of friends to see who is the best gamer amongst you!

Removing Your Buddy

1. Removing a buddy simply removes the link between your
account and theirs. This means you will no longer see each
other’s updates.

2. Click on the buddy you wish to remove and it will highlight
them in orange.

3. A small trash can icon will appear. Click on this icon.

4. You will be asked to confirm the removal of the Buddy link.
Click the Remove (Buddy’s Name) button.

Note: Removing your buddy will not send a notification to the buddy, so that they won’t
know that you removed them.
