Hi all,
Recently in about a third of the notifications I get about agrees or disagrees on my KudoZ answers, the links don't come out as links -- they're just text. I can cut and paste them into the address window on the browser, but I can't click on them to go to the question. Lots of times I'll get other notifications in the same batch of e-mail in which the links work fine....what gives?

Hi Terry,
it may be caused (just guessting) by the version of the software used to post the question. I suspect that the old version works well and the new version (still in beta) is not yet entirely refined in some details.

Perhaps you could observe a message of each type, and try to find at least one revealing difference, to identify the message origin.

Noticed it too Sep 16, 2003

Yes, I have noticed this too and it has stopped me sometimes from checking these web sites because it is too cumbersome.

I noticed this several weeks ago. When you post a Kudos question in Unicode, you will get answers with links that you cannot access simply by clicking. If you post in GB2312 or Big 5, the anwer links are just okay.
