"Followed Discussions"

Wayno Jan 14, 2014 01:02 PM

Was just checking my profile and saw that my list of "followed discussions" was, I think, every single discussion in which I ever made a comment (or maybe just opened), and was not the much smaller list of discussions on which I actually clicked on the * and intended to follow. Am I missing something?

    The old Saved discussions function, along with the profile listing of all the threads you've participated were merged into one list of Followed discussions a few months ago. At that time, it also became possible to unfollow discussions you've posted in.

    Here's the announcement:
    http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/918281

    If you need a list of the posts you had Saved before the two things were merged, let me know, as I have that info and can email it to you.

      Thanks, Jacquilynne. I was unaware of that development. I guess I can no longer use the function described in the announcement to retrieve my "saved" discussions, because that was only going to be available for a week or two, according to the announcement. If you otherwise have my original saved messages available, I would like that info and would be happy to have you email it to me; but, the profiles settings will not allow me to change my email address, despite my having tried to do so numerous times, and thus I cannot input my current email address into my profile.

        Drop me a line at moderators@chowhound.com with your current address, and I can both update the system with that address and email you your list.

          I think I just succeeded in updating the email address. It's a hotmail address that now appears in my profile. Thanks.
