A simple way to track anonymously

David Ford Jul 2, 2006 05:56 PM

Hello all,

For anyone like myself who would like to use the tracking feature but does not want the identities of the people I am tracking displayed publicly, I have good news!

All you have to do is click on the my Chow page of the person you would like to track and then bookmark it! No muss, no fuss; and you can click over to check to see what discussions your trackee has been participating in any time you want -- with your anonymity intact.

    I'm not sure I understand, David. Do you mean to click on the bookmark link on the "bookmark this user" link on the Chow page?

    I just tried this with you and I am on the list of people tracking you. Or are you referring to bookmarking on your browser?

      Hi Dave,

      I am referring to your browser's bookmark function.

        That's what I assumed. Thanks.

      What David's saying is that everyone's profile page lists the threads they've most recently contributed to. So if you bookmark profile pages, you can dive into those threads.

      Which is a great point. The only problem is that it presently only shows the ten most recent threads. I'd like a "more" button, myself (so you can see more than 10), but the programmers have more urgent stuff to work on.

      Remember you can always search for a username via the advanced search function.

        Yep, like other hounds, I think most of us want "more" posts whenever possible, just like we want more food.
