I don't know what the purpose of the tracer is. Could someone please explain it to me?

If there is a thread that is of interest to you, and you would like to keep track of it to read again, click "Trace" located to the right of each thread title. You will find it takes you to your "Personal Page" (also listed at the top of each page). You will thereafter be able to find your traced threads on your Personal Page, thereby saving you the dilemma of forgetting the exact name of the intriguing thread you saw late one night when you ought to have been sound asleep.

Enjoy!

Let's say you want to keep an eye on a thread over an extended period of time, to see it anything new develops. Click the "add to tracer" link just above the "Reply to Thread box, and the thread will be added to your tracer on the bottom of your Personal Messages page.
Take the time to explore all the features of Mudcat - you can't break anything.

Thanks Joe! Did you get my PM? How long do you usually have to wait on this forum until someone sends you a reply? I know that it depends on the person but what is the usual length of time between sending a PM and receiving a reply?

Question, Joe:

I've been here since late 1999, and over the years I've added a lot of stuff to the tracer. I was hunting for something a few weeks back, and discovered that my tracer list is empty.

Does this mean I'm maxed out and it's all imploded into a black hole or something? And is there any way I can get the list back and selectively prune it to reasonable proportions?

Hi, Morwen -
No, I didn't get your PM. Click on the PM link next to my name in this message, and try again.

We've had threads here that replies ten years after the question was asked, and we've had answers posted in less than a minute. It takes a while to learn the art of coaxing along a productive thread - remember that coaxing is the important word here, not pushing. In general, if you post five messages in a row in a thread here, people will think you have an ego problem, and they will ignore the thread. The best threads are those where people respect the intelligence of other participants. I think the best rule to follow is this: post only when you have intelligent questions to ask, or significant information to provide. If you're simply posting what has been posted before, you're wasting people's time. And remember what I said about refreshing threads - don't post a "refresh" message unless nobody has posted for at least twelve hours. If you refresh threads more often, people will get annoyed with you.

Your primary interest appears to be Calypso music. This is an area we have not explored extensively, and it's a very good topic to explore. Unfortunately, I don't think there is a whole lot of valid resource material that we can draw from. We have Lord Invader, who was then interpreted and popularized by Harry Belafonte, and not much else. I think there is a lot more to be found, but it will take some serious digging.

-Joe-

Actually it would be nice if there was some way to search the trace list... just the titles, not the contents thereof ...

Search the trace list? What do you mean, Robin?
You can search any Internet page, including the trace list, but using [CTRL-F] on your browser. Do you need something other than that?
