People listed in Green against games/consoles are 'trusted friends' that you've added and they have added you.

'Friends added' means that you've added someone to your list, but they have yet to reciprocate. These are amber.

'Friends pending' are friends that have added you, but you haven't added them to your system yet. These are red.

Currently, I'll show as an 'Added' friend on your Wii list, while you show as 'pending' for me against the Wii list.

You should also add your games' friend codes where they're needed against individual games etc. That way, you can check and see exactly which of your friends own which games so you can play online.

Its an awful lot of messing about just to play a game, but it does work.

Now i'm confused, says i've added 1 friend, assuming that's you, but now have 1 pending, what am I supposed to do about it?

KBS, think that's pretty much it, I should get an add or something and confirm, though I haven't yet.

Maybe I've got Added and Pending back to front...

Red means you have to add somebody to your Wii.

Amber means you're waiting for someone to add you.

I think. You have me doubting now and I was so sure before.

Anyway - Not green = bad ;)

If you click the 'show friends' link and expand all, you can scroll down and easly see if there's any red or amber.

I should be showing as green for you now.

[edit]
I've had a look.
On the pending and added links at the top, there's an 'expand these games' link. Clicking that opens the panel for the games/consoles that need attention on the list down the left hand side.
If you go to one of the games/consoles that has opened once clicking that, you'll see each one has a 'find friends' link. Clicking that opens the main A-Z of friends on the right. Expanding all names there will let you scan for red/amber/green.
I'm right btw, Red is for people you need to add, amber is for people you are waiting to do their bit. I'd done my bit on the Wii, just hadn't ticked the box on the site to say I;d done it so I'd have been showing as amber for you.

This sounds more complicated than it really is. Once you see it, it becomes clear.
