Hi! What is this. In my profile I had reported EN-DE and vice versa. Now as I wanted to quote on a job EN-DE, I got the above display "Quoting in all pairs has been closed?" As far as I know, this regulation was not there earlier. Prior to this I had quoted on DE-EN poster.
Appreciate all updating help,
p.s. Just now noted that the poster had been closed. May be that is the reason.

Job closed by the job poster Jan 27, 2005

Hi Brandis,
This means - as you suspect - that the job poster has closed the job completely (as opposed to closing quoting in a single pair only, which is also possible).

HTH, Ralf

Phew! Jun 6, 2006

I just got this, too, and thought that somehow my account had been erroneously suspended from quoting, or something.
that would be a problem...
So, why didn´t they just close the job, as opposed to closing quoting?
I mean, there MUST be a difference, because sometimes by the time I get a job notification (like, when I´m at court interpreting all day, like today) and click through there is a message that states the the job is closed, and I don´t even have the option of submitting a quote, unlike this case, wherein the job appears to still be open, but quoting was prohibited.

Dear Anthony Jun 6, 2006

I tried hard, but I honestly can't see where ProZ can be blamed if the Job Poster has decided he has enough quotes for a certain language pair or if he has decided to close his job.
