No matter what I select, it will not clear the red warning and let me proceed. All other fields accepted responses. How do I get this to accept the "friends" answer?
I would suggest clearing your browser's cache. If that doesn't solve the problem, I would then clear the TA cookies from your computer.
I hope that helps.
Also, what platform, and browser are you using?
Especially with display, and similar issues, they can be browser, or platform-specific. The “corrections” can also be specific.
Best of luck,
