Tiny Contacts Pony!

Hopefully I didn't miss if this was asked/answered, but is there any way when clicking on someone's profile it can tell is if they have added us as a contact?

It tells you if you've added someone when you look at their profile ( "so-and-so is a contact"), but in order to see if they've added you as a contact, you have to go back to your own profile.

On the right, under Social, click on the number in "Links to: XX users" and see if your name is there.

I'd like to see my mutual contacts separated out. That is, I'd like to see who calls me a contact that I do not call a contact - so I can contact them.

Jouke, it shows you on their profile if you have added them as a contact, not if they've added you. Languagehat, I know you can check their list of contacts, I just want to know why we can't see right there, under their name:

"Languagehat is your contact | You are a contact of Languagehat."

or, alternately:

"Sasshat is your contact | You are not Sasshat's contact"

Ah, gotcha. Yeah, that would be a nice touch.

Also a tiny pony: The sidebar says someone's been added when in fact they've only been edited. I can't have people thinking I've only just now added loquacious. I promoted him!

"A pony is your contact | You are not a pony's contact."

Many of us think this is an excellent idea, and we all support SassHat's suggestion.

I would also like a mutual contacts indicator on a profie page like this.
