New in myCHOW: Reading List

Hey 'Hounds,

"Friends" is no more. Instead you may read people and people may read you. Read what, you ask? The Reading List, of course.

Check it here (if you're logged in): http://www.chow.com/profile/reading

The Reading List in myCHOW is an aggregate of recent posts from 'Hounds you are reading. It's private so no one else can see it or who you are reading. Add people to your reading list from their profile and remove them from your reading list from your 'Favorites' page.

The Reading List updates automatically about every 15 minutes. Enjoy.

  1. This doesn't seem to be working just quite yet... regardless, as the person who suggested the reading-related terms...


    ...I'm honored. :) Keep up the great work.


    1. Still getting this error message:

      "There's a slight problem...
      Sorry, something's not working with this page. We'll check it out."

      1. I... see.... red.... people.....

        (Just kidding, couldn't resist.) Better, I guess. Thank you.

          Until recently I had no idea that avatars existed; I think yours is outstanding!

        2. Good solution. I'd rather see names than stick figures and avatars, but that's a very minor point, as far as I'm concerned.

          1. As of this morning, neither My Reading List or Favorites is working under My CHOW.

            1. Seems to be working fine for me and a great addition to the site!

                All is well now. My original post related to the site being down this morning

                  It's not an addition. Prior to the makeover that list was called something like "People I'm Tracking." Then it was renamed "My Friends," which is confusing since it's not the MySpace-type invitation-accept/reject system the term normally applies to.

                    I never noticed that there was a page that had a list of all the threads that the people had contributed to... Isn't that new?

                    1. re: Mike Z

                      That is new. I believe what Robert is talking about is that the ability to track people is not, which is correct.

                        The "Posts" list of topics recently posted to is an old feature.

                        The "Activity" page that contains the full text of recent posts is new.

                        There's still not a page that lists *all* the threads people have contributed to. Maybe the new, improved search will offer that capability.
