waynewex Posted December 5, 2008 Share Posted December 5, 2008 I was looking through the DB setup of SMF when I realized that they didn't have a table dedicated to handling the user's buddies list. They instead have one column inside the members table dedicated to keeping a list of all friends. Is this a go economic way to go about things? Inserting a list of user ids into one column, with each of them separated by commas so that you can explode them upon extraction? Can anyone think of a major drawback to doing it this way?
