It means someone is on your buddy list.

Quoting from the site FAQ:

What are the buddy and ignore lists?
The buddy list is used to keep track of the friends you have made on this forum. By going to your "My vB Home", you'll be able to see which of your friends are currently online, and be able to send them a private message. Adding people to your buddy list also allow you to send private messages to multiple forum members at the same time. You may add any member of the forums to your buddy list by clicking this button in a member's posts.

Ignore lists are used for those people who's messages you wish not to read. By adding someone to your ignore list, those messages posted by these individuals will be hidden when you read a thread.

I haven't read most of it either! But I figured it might contain an explanation of the buddy list which would be easier than me trying to explain it - especially as I didn't know the complete answer....

My husband (the computer wiz in the family) keeps telling me to read manuals and such and I never listen to him then either!! (Until my computer acts up and he asks what I did and when I tell him he asks if I read the manual and I say of course not and if looks could kill I'd be dead many times over )

Well, my husband the computer whiz is known for occasionally saying "I just don't understand it. Maybe I should check the manual..."
