How can you tell who is tracking you?

I can only see who is tracking other people. Can anyone see who is tracking them?

  1. Click to Upload a photo (10 MB limit)
  1. Yes. Just click on "my Chow" (the third option on the right on the maroon banner above) and you can see who is tracking you.

    1. Really? All I see is my profile that I completed and a description of the who's tracking me, who am I tracking options, as text boxes. No actual info re who is tracking me. However, when I click on the link of other hounds, I see their profiles and who is tracking them.

        I'd say then that no one is tracking you.

        1. re: sasha1

          What does it say directly under "People Tracking Me"?

          1. re: sasha1

            I just realized - if no one is tracking you, maybe the default is the descriptions, and if someone is tracking you, then it displays that info???

              Yup - here's what I see when I click on your name, Sasha:

                sasha, just as a test, I'll track you, and see if it "works."

            2. Me too. And now I feel popular :)

              1. Is this Trina's Sasha? :) If so, after our dinner the other night and your mention of Chowhound, I'm here!

                1. Hi!
                  I'm new to the boards, but have been on some other discussion
                  boards in the past, & one of them has a link so you can see
                  who's viewed your profile. Is that the same as
                  "who's tracking you"?

                    Tracking is a little more involved than just viewing your profile. They have to view it, and choose to put you on their list of people they're tracking by hitting the 'track this user' link on their profile.

                      I have a suggestion to make:
                      I think it could be fun to be able to email other people
                      on this site, through this site. Yes, I know it's NOT a
                      dating site! (I already have a BF!) I just think that
                      it could be a good method to maybe swap recipes w/people,
                      & just talk about food & things in general.
                      Chat rooms set up could be cool, as well.

                      I know I'm a nOob, I just thought I'd add my 2 cents.
                      (By all means, I think this is a great, really great
                      website! I'm really glad I stumbled across it! :-))

                        Welcome to Chowhound, pianochikke. Many other users have asked for this feature but I don't know if it's going to be implemented. Many Chowhounds who are receptive to receiving email are putting their addresses in their profile. There isn't a designated place to put it, but it's easy to do (click on my name to see where I put it).

                          Welcome, pianochikke.

                          This is a community board--if you're interested in trading recipes, check out the home cooking board ( ). the home cooks here are a talented and friendly bunch. but if you trade recipes via email, one person gets to benefit, rather than the whole crew.

                          To talk about food in general, there's a General Topics board: .

                          As for talking about things in general, it doesn't happen much here, and i'm thankful for that. Chowhound is a focused, concentrated food resource, and that's what makes it most valuable for me.

                          you can email some folks if they've chosen to share their email address in their profile.
