KudoZ.NET: what is it for?
Thread poster: Nikita Kobrin
| KudoZ.NET is part of the solution || Dec 2, 2002 |
Among the advantages of the KudoZ.NET approach are that it will reduce load on the servers (only content goes out), and that it will reduce reliance on email as a means of notification.
In per-launch testing, one person expressed views similar to yours. Over time, that person came to see value, even with an always-on high-speed connection.
When KudoZ was launched, no one really used it for almost three months. Give it some time and a fair shake, ok?

Hoping for the better times,
P.S. And here\'s the \"lust\" example for you:
question posted: 11.52 am
notification received: 6.11 pm
delivery time: 6 hours 19 minutes!!!!!!!

| It will be a usefule tool for those who have to dial up for internet connection || Dec 2, 2002 |
...but Nikita has a point here...
I downloaded the new feature, but I\'m fairly sure that I will stick to the on-line interface... This for the fact that I have unlimited Internet access. For those who have not, it surely will be a valuable tool to put questions and answers, not all of us have the \"luxury\" of cable or DSL Internet connection, not even in Europe where DSL etc. are still rather expensive...
Still, Nikita has a point: not only the KudoZ notifications seem not to work properly, even the Job notifications seem to. Just 15 minutes ago I got a notification for a job that was posted at 10.30 this morning, GMT...
Guess if I would have had the chance to get this job if I\'d wanted to and futhermore if it was urgent...
Instant notification in my opinion is very important in this business, we see this every day. Who comes first eats first as we say in German I don\'t like this, but it seems to be a fact, even when it comes to KudoZ questions...

| Have some patience || Dec 2, 2002 |
I also downloaded KudoZ.NET and I was also a bit disappointed.
This site contains so much necessary and useful information, besides KudoZ questions, I am actually browsing through it a few times a day, whenever I have some time to do so.
For me, there\'s no need to have such a offline desktop application, at the moment.
However, I do think that this tool can be very useful, if some features are being added: like maybe a glossary search.
I think, I would definitely use this tool more often if there was a glossary search in it.
I already posted my comment on this to the Proz staff and was notified that this software will be updated and new features will be added.
I think there\'s no point in complaining about how useless it is at the moment. Wait until it develops. It\'s still beta.
| Downloading unanswered questions || Dec 2, 2002 |
thanks for testing the KudoZ.NET program.
That the server sends you old questions when you download \"unansered questions only\" is to be explected. For, usually KudoZ question are answered very quickly so that there are hardly any unanswered questions to be seen.
I recommend to set status \"ungraded questions only\" when you download questions to answer. You will then get the latest questions which have not been graded.
