The second one.
This question raised on my mind when I got mail from EnglishForward.com it has subject line " Calif has requested to add you as a friend".
before that I was clear that "has been" is used in such case.
how can we suggest EnglishForward.com to correct this?

Where is that? I'll try to fix it.
Hey Manish, thanks for your concern.

Actually, when Mr.X wants to add me as a friend, I receive a system e-mail that says:

1. Title:

"Mr.X has requested your friendship on EnglishForward.com".
2. Message:

"Mr.X has requested to add you as a friend on EnglishForward.com."

I don't see anything wrong with the above sentences. However, another correct sentence would be, "I have been requested to add Mr.X as a friend" (requested by Mr.X himself, obviously). But we don't send out e-mails with such wording.

Coming back to your example,

"Calif has been requested to add you as a friend" - it means that you* sent Calif a friend request and *he will receive a notification about it (an e-mail with the sentences 1 and 2 I wrote above).

"Calif has requested to add you as a friend" - it means that Calif* sent you a friend request and *you will receive a notification about it (again, an e-mail with the sentences 1 and 2 I wrote above).

I hope I'm clear. Emotion: smile
Hey Mister Micawber, thanks for response.

just try to send me friendship request through the Forum .
You will get a "system E-mail". There you will get that mistake: in the subject line and also in the body.
I know what "system E-mail" mean, so I dont count it as big mistake.
its really gr8 website to learn .

Dear Ruslana, thanks for response.

here the scenario is completely def. thats what the actual problem is.
the actual scenario :

I requested Sarah Siqueira for friendship.
And I got mail from forum

subjected :" has requested your friendship on EnglishForward.com"

The mail also contain sentence: " has requested to add you as a friend on EnglishForward.com ." in the body.

I know its "system e-mail", so its not a big mistake .
I think this forum is gr8 because it has intellectual members like you.

I hope I'm clear.
