I just saw this happen in front of my eyes. One moment my old friend was there and the next... VOOM, gone. But, I still haven\'t met my new buddy so I guess I\'ll have to start using the system before I can really say whether I like it or not....! that was SO fast... that\'s all I can say for now. thanks for always trying to improve on the site.

Saludos,
Laura

Squashed questions Mar 31, 2004

Status: All, Open, Closed ... and (possibly) Squashed?

Also: is it possible to vertically align all fields, perhaps in two columns, and to put the main button "View Questions" at the very bottom of the box. I didn't find it immediatily, it is not conspicuous enough.

Thanks Mar 31, 2004

A lot of useful features.
Congratulations!

On closed questions, would it be possible to give a different color when your answer was selected?

definately an improvement Mar 31, 2004

the possibilities of searching and filtering on this page are particularly useful. Congrats.

I wish other sites would spend as much time and effort on improvements as Proz.

Suggestion Mar 31, 2004

I use Internet Explorer and 800×600 resolution. With the new layout I have to scroll right to see the complete KudoZ table. (Changing the font size doesn't necessarily remedy this.) The layout would be more user-friendly if this weren't necessary.

MODERATOR
- Mar 31, 2004

Thank you Henry. Here is some critics

1) The column width should be changed. The FIELD column should be definitely not so wide: at present it seems to be the most important column. If the field is long (e.g "Social Science, Sociology, Ethics, etc."), it should be either wrapped or written with a smaller font.
The language pair column is also too wide.
Thus the question itself seems to be the less important part of the page

2) The VIEW QUESTIONS button should be definitely below the upper box. At present it is hardly visible.

3) The VIEW SQUASHED option is absent.

4) It would be more convenient if the PRO and EASY questions would differ also in color.

5) I wonder if it would be possible to add the "save options" feature.

What do the colours mean? Mar 31, 2004

I've asked this before: I know bright yellow on the number of responses means an answer has been chosen, but why are some canary, some grey, some orange, etc?

How to change "Fields" options default? Mar 31, 2004

I'd like to change "Fields" from "My KudoZ Fields" to "All Fields". I can select the option I want from the drop-down menu, but I can't make it "stick." What's the secret?

Bug Mar 31, 2004

Rolling over the menu at the top (i.e. Home | KudoZ | Jobs | Directory | etc....), the drop-downs don't overlap the fields in the box - those field boxes with their white backgrounds stay on top no matter what. I assume it's a bug, not a feature; this doesn't seem like expected behaviour.

The page concept is good and useful, though. Once it's tweaked it will be even better.

Nancy, but WHERE on earth do you see these colors??? What I see, is a uniformly colored page with orange (or rather dark yellow) squares where the answers are chosen...

For the moment you can not access them, except by going from the links in emails. I am working on it.

I reorganized the form a bit. Let me know if what I did is not enough.

I will add the squashed option.
