TechRepublic Contacts

Hi,

I'm wondering if there is a way to search for a specific TechRepublic user and add them to your contacts. Is this possible? If so, how do I do it. I can't seem to find that ability.

Thank you.

Troy

I don't know that this is the reccommended way, but it works

by neilb@uk In reply to TechRepublic Contacts

Open your own Member Profile by clicking in the box with your avatar on the right. On your Profile page you'll see the Top 100 bar and you have to click on the words "Top 100".

This will open the Top 100 page and this has a Member Search facility to get you to the profile page of the desired contact.

On THAT page, there is an option (just under "Tech Republic People") called "Add to My Contacts. Click it...

If you see a post from the user you want as a contact, you can click their name and you'll go straight to their Profile page and bypass the need for a search.

How mean!

It isn't ME that isn't intuitive, it's TR removing the "People" tab that used to have the member search under it!

Still, it is good that they only let me loose on computers for other reasons. I don't even have to talk to users...

No Top 100 bar

I went into my Profile page, but no where do I see a "Top 100" bar, or any way of doing searches.

Why did TR remove the "People" tab?

OK then follow these directions

Go to the Web Page

On a redesign TR removed the People Profile because very few people where using it and they needed the space for something else I suppose. If it had of been well used I believe it would have stayed but as very few where actually using it and when TR Asked there was no great rush of Peers to complain/ use that option they acting on User Feedback removed it.

Really quite simple when everything is said & Done if the Users Don't want it it disappears.

Generally...

by Beth Blakely In reply to TechRepublic Contacts

People add members to their contacts when they see an interesting post by that person.

The method provided above will work, but if you have trouble finding someone, just PM me.

What BB is trying to say quite nicely is

by OH Smeg In reply to Generally...

When you view a posting from someone that you like there is an option on the bottom of their post to Add To Contacts, Look up Profile on every posting and on those that have enabled Peer Main there is a third option of Send Message.

Of course this doesn't work for you if you had your TR Account terminated and are trying to get back in and add all your previous contacts. You'll just have to Lurk around till you find them all if they are not in the Top 100.
