The results when you search for a Pro are sorted by total KudoZ points. This is not the order a client would expect to see. I am sure the client prefers a 600 points in the pair than a 90 points in the pair but 1000 in a lot of pairs.

The results should be sorted by the Kudoz points IN THAT PAIR, NOT TOTAL.

Hi Silvio!

What I can see from the new site version, is that both sorting cryteria are displayed: the number of points in bold characters (upper line) are the KudoZ points for that pair, the number in normal characters (lower line) are the total points (points for all language pairs).

I think this is fair; the potential customer sees the activity both for the specific pair and for other pairs showing the total expertise of that person.



Secondly: I suggest that this interesting posting should be inserted into the \"Suggestions\" topics and not into the \"Bugs\" section. It\'s not a bug, but just a proposal of changing the sorting modality.



Ciao!

Giovanna
