to Identify Sources for Discussion Group

Finding Messages on a Thread:

It will help if we're all on the same page. When you are discussing a particular thread on transform_dom:

  • Put up the Message No. that started it all.

  • Or see if there is a name we can find in the search engine. Then we can go back and follow the thread by checking for the subject line.

  • Or start your message with a name we can find on the message list, like Randy (im14peasnluv) or Kathleen (spirithart) or Michael (mevysen). Then we can go back and follow the thread by checking for the names that are in parentheses. The ones in parentheses are your Yahoo ID for this site.

  • Or check the transform_dom search engine - top menu line - green bar Messages: Enter the number of the message and it'll take you right to it. Or enter a search word and it will list all the messages using that term. Or enter the Yahoo ID name and it'll list all the messages by that person.

  • If you can find your thread by a search term, start you messages for that thread with the search term.

Change the Subject Slightly for Each Message

  • If the thread is a dialog with Randy or Greg, for example, change subject to Randy+ Greg: then add the topic of your message - "ladies" affect-laden

  • Or if the subject is troops home, start subject line with Troops home: then add your message - shift in policy

  • This will let us follow the thread of the discussion right from the message list. Will save enormous amounts of time for all of us. And I'll give you extra points for taking the time to do this. I know, I know, I don't add up points. But it's like an automatic knee jerk response - if I say I'll give you extra credit, you'll do it. THINK ABOUT THAT. jeanne

With Sources, Cut and Paste the Link for Your Source

  • If you used Bartleby's for the source for Robert Frost's poem, the Road Not Taken, on our homepage, put Robert Frost Road Not Taken, Bartleby's: in your message. Yahoo will automatically turn it into a link. then we can all find your source with a simple click. Neat, hmmm????? jeanne
