I was wondering if MSN can be customized in Piding? I mean I am invisible....but to everyone, I simply cannot figure out how to be invisible only to certain people or groups. Any ideas?

You can do this using the "Allow only the users below" and "block only the users below" privacy lists. It's possible it's buggy, but that's covered in bug #466 and #4454. And the fact that the privacy lists aren't labeled as "invisible" and "visible" lists will be dealt with in our privacy rewrite.

thanks for the answer. One more question: to the "Allow only the users below" list....do I simply add the email of the users I want to appear visible to? And then set my status to visible from invisible? –  Elysium Apr 11 '12 at 22:23
