    I'm trying to add dutch defense (User 389481) to my buddy list, but when I type in the exact name, I end up putting myself on my buddy list.

    because he spells it English fashion " dutch defence" . Note the C.

    I already got caught on that one in another thread.

    I type in the exact name and the two d's at the start are automatically capitalized for some reason.

    sure you didn't automatically "correct" the spelling of defence? I had no trouble when I tried it.

    I now have both of you in my buddy list. Try a cut-and-paste from the name in the forum, your settings must be different from mine.

    When I have such a problem, I use the copy & paste method to enter it correctly. It's very easy to miss a spelling difference.

    It worked. For some reason, it didn't before.
