I have been having the problem where I have too many friends, and now its nearly impossible to find the friends I want to put in my top friends list. When it gets to over a thousand, it just becomes unmanageable.

I could not find any solutions on the net (only that the friends were in order of their ID numbers, based on when they signed up for myspace) , but after playing around for a while on myspace, I figured it out!

Here is how to find the friend you want to put in your top friends list, when you have a redunkulous amount of friends…

First, Open up Notepad. This is a great program to use for editing code because it is a small program which won’t slow down your computer and it won’t mess up any code you put in there with formatting. Its a great scratchpad for working with and analyzing code.

Now, you get the friends ID number. Save it somewhere (notepad).

Go to Change my “top friends”
click on the 2nd page of friends. This changes the address completely, and therein lies the solution.
copy and paste it in notepad, it will look like this:

http://editprofile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.editTopFriends&
UserName=YOURNAME&f_search=&searchby=first&page=1&
finalpage=&prevPage=0&lastpage=0&PREVPageLASTONERETURENED
=114770&PREVPageFirstONERETURENED=6221&TotalRecords=
4749&myTopFriends=6696231%2C8540231%2C155831586%2C15998994%
2C118839694%2C138658120%2C2493179%2C69002564%2C112128318
%2C1941907%2C15035110%2C146524929%2C6037405%2C119636354
%2C52546922%2C4313549%2C122433991%2C33660765%2C93098319
%2C39864919%2C115453876%2C17420422%2C48515146%2C8185712
&topNumber=24

This looks like mumbo jumbo, but theres a solution in there. If you seperate the code, it makes it easier to understand.

Identifies you:
http://editprofile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.editTopFriends
&UserName=YOURNAME

Probably some sort of indexing:
&f_search=&searchby=first&page=1&finalpage=
&prevPage=0&lastpage=0&PREVPageLASTONERETURENED
=114770&PREVPageFirstONERETURENED=6221

How many friends you have total:
&TotalRecords=4749

LIST OF YOUR TOP FRIENDS:
&myTopFriends=6696231%2C8540231%2C155831586%2C15998994%
2C118839694%2C138658120%2C2493179%2C69002564%2C112128318%
2C1941907%2C15035110%2C146524929%2C6037405%2C119636354%
2C52546922%2C4313549%2C122433991%2C33660765%2C93098319%
2C39864919%2C115453876%2C17420422%2C48515146%2C8185712

How many top friends you show:
&topNumber=24

Is it apparent now? In the list of top friends, you take the friend ID which you want to be in your top friend list, and replace the person you want to take out. The first friend in the list is clear to see, but the others have 2C ahead of them. Just leave that part in and replace the ID numbers.
To find who the person is in the ID you are removing, either count off, or plug it in here:
http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=XXX

You can do this in the address bar or here in notepad. Either way, put the new address in and go to that page. You did it! amazing. I feel good.

if it didnt work, try again. It will work.
