no idea,

I've never even actually looked at it.

Go on, take a quick look

by Choppit In reply to no idea,

Take a look. It appears that TR is converting users interests (entered freehand) into check boxes for querying the directory. Looks like its already gotten out of hand. Peer listing interests used to be entered against pre-defined subjects.

nobody else is interested in Smashing Pumkins B-Sides?

Well, I guess I'm in the wrong spot.

I forgot to bring only my conservative and professional priorities to the table. My mistake.

How can you tell which side is which after you shoot it off in one of those huge compressed air cannons?

it's a method to find out who's interested in what.

why? after posting and reading the discussions that's pretty obvious isn't it?

without using the peer directory I'm sure almost everyone knows I'm big on linux/unix and programming.

just like I know dafe2 is big supporter of ms and, despite that insanity, actually knows what he's doing.
do I really need to go search for interestes?
nope. ( house is just nuts, and he wonders why not getting matches in the looking for b sides of the pumkins albms )

Different strokes...

by sMoRTy71 In reply to ahh

I guess this one falls under the "different strokes for different folks" category. Some members actually expressed an interest in such a feature.

It is designed to allow people to find other people that have similar interests (or find new interests that they would like to add to their profile). It is also supposed to be a quick snapshot of what our community is interested in.

I agree that the page is getting out of hand now; however, we have a plan in place to limit this page to the Top 100 interests and technologies.

How about...

by Choppit In reply to Different strokes...

When editing peer listings, going back to the original tick boxes with predefined technologies/subjects and keeping the free text entry for non IT/Business/Other interests.
