I have an idea for a new tool on the site (seriously - no sarcasm)
You already have a way to "suggest friends" to our existing friends, but that only makes sense if the two people know each other already. I have a situation where I know two people, but they've never met and no nothing about one another. If I simply "suggest" one of them to the other, they won't know why. You don't give us any opportunity to send a message along with the suggestion.
I propose a new feature, similar to "Suggest" called "Introduce"
It would allow you to connect one or more existing friends to one another along with a message explaining why you'd want to "friend" this new person. It could have a myraid of uses, introducing people from a dating perspective (hey Tom, you should meet Mary, she's awesome), bringing people into niche groups or folks with common social hobbies or interests and even businesses who have a FaceBook presence could use this a way of introducing the existing team to new employees.
So, this started out as a bit of a brain dump on the AZCFUG.org mailing list when someone asked what the going rate is for a ColdFusion Developer these days. I recieved a lot of positive feedback on it, so I thought it might be a good idea to share on here.
