Hallo,

I've just posted a volunteer job (174644) that needs to be done by tomorrow night. I tickmarked the box that says I'd like non-members to be able to see the job too, but the system automatically changed the option to "non-members will be restricted from posting for 12 hours" because of the "large number of members available for the job".

As this is a volunteer job, could someone please remove the restriction.

Thanks,
Anu

Contact a job moderator Jun 6, 2007

Hi Swaiyam,
I think it would be better to contact a job moderator rather than post in the forums, you`ll surely get a reply from one of them.
Regards,
Marina

Hi Anu,

I had the exact same problem a few days ago and submitted a support ticket.

Here's the answer I received:

--------------------------

The option have not been properly set may be (1 hour, 45 mins since ticket submitted )

Dear Tanja,

If you have chosen after the question: Limit this job to (paying) members of ProZ.com? No, allow non-members to express interest then non-members will be notified of the job.
The problem here might have been that you have scrolled down and the option was not set.
The default option is always: Allow Non-members to quote after 12 hours.

I have tried to reproduced the problem and I was perfecrtly able to post the job allowing non-members to express their interest.

Please try again and if you encounter the same problem, do not hesitate to contact me again.

Best regards,

Florencia Vita
ProZ.com Staff

Perhaps this helps.

Tanja
