Has anyone else got repeated wrong language pairs, and missed job offers, in their mailbox? In the last week or so I\'ve received a lot of German and Dutch questions, which masquerade in my box as Eng mono, or Eng-Fr translation..

This probably has to do with accidental mis-postings... Nov 10, 2002

...which were eventually corrected/moved by someone to appear in the proper language group.

I think that there are still some problems to iron out Nov 10, 2002

Good evening Nancy Lynn!



I think that the Kudoz-side of things is still experiencing problems at the moment.



I have asked a Kudoz question earlier today (as you know) and I am *still* unable to add any additional information or comments to it. (I filled out a support request to bring this to their attention).



I don\'t know about your particular problem however, as I don\'t receive any Kudoz questions in my inbox.



I already get over 500-600 emails per day so I just come on the Kudoz board when I have some spare time to see what the latest quesitons are instead.



But I wanted to let you know that you\'re not alone in having problems with Kudoz at the moment



This will hopefully be resolved soon



Nathalie

Contact you moderator! Nov 10, 2002

The moderators can alter language pairs to be correct.



I think most of us have ceased having KudoZ eMails, instead going to the ProZ.com main page. Thus, our mail boxes are not inundated.



Best regards



Mats

Usually the asker's mistake, I believe.. Nov 10, 2002

It\'s not always easy to handle the two drop-down boxes, for newcomers.

It happened as often before the \"big crash\" as it did since - the difference is that now we don\'t always have the questions as early in our mailboxes so there can be more delay before a correction.



Follow Mat\'s good advice : contact your moderator..

Were you bombarded with mulitple copies this morning? Nov 10, 2002

Good morning!



I just filled out a technical support form.



This morning I downloaded my emails (just now) and I had about 8 copies of one job posting, and *every single one* of the replies posted to forums came in doubled (i.e. Oddie\'s reply came in twice, Mat\'s as well... everyone\'s postings in all the forum I track came in twice)



I never usually have such problems, and I want to see if you are receiving everything twice as well.



Please let me know,

Nathalie



(P.s. Note added: I should point out that the *only* doubling of emails comes from Proz, and did not happen from any of my other email groups etc...)

Everything OK here Nov 10, 2002

I have disabled the automatic notification of KudoZ questions to lighten the load. I still receive up to 200 e-mails per day. I have never received messages for language pairs not declared in my profile. I have recived duplicates but it turned out to be due a recovery procedure of the Bell Canad e-mail server. I did however receive close to ten notifications of a book translation job since yesterday. Job notifications are sometimes slow but it was already the case before the crash.
