Sometimes it seems like all you have to do is change a couple of inscriptions on the site and that's it. But it's not that simple.
For example, I decided to change my friends to followers/subscribers. In fact, the relation we have here is more like a following or a subscription than a friendship.
But there's a tiny issue.
Sometimes this relationship is used in the interface in one direction (we are talking about those who follow us). Then everything is easy in this case, we can mention them as your followers.
Sometimes, it's about those you're following. Then a little more difficult. The best thing that I came up with and advised me is the term "following". But replacing "Friends Standings" with "Following Standings" (or "Followings Standings"?) looks so-so. Likewise, what was "Friends Rating Changes" and will it be "Following Rating Changes" (or "Followings Rating Changes")? Looks really clumsy.
Probably, you can change the interface so that to get rid of these menu items at all. But I don't want to do that now. It would be wonderful to find some way of writing that would be most successful.
Thanks to Ivan and Peter, with whom I have discussed this problem a little, but I haven't found a good solution.
What are your thoughts?
