I really welcome the recent introduction of the Off-Topic forum. However, once the individual topics have left the main ProZ page I can\'t find them anymore under \"See more discussions\". Can this be remedied please?

This topic raised previously without much effect Aug 3, 2002

I posted a message in \"Bugs\" about this on 29th June, some discussion followed - there were 6 replies, the last on 6th July, but nothing has been done.

Why can\'t \"Off Topic\" be listed among all the other forums in the same way as \"Suggestions\", \"Bugs\" and everything else.

I hope you have more success by raising this topic now than I did with my attempt to do so.

They are there Aug 3, 2002

Hi Robert and Jack

I have no problem to find them and I think may be you went at the bottom of the page.

In Discussion Forums you see

Art of translation

Techniques

Literature and Poetry

Special

Powwow organizers

Off Topic



And all the subjects discussed until now are there.

Not so on my computer Aug 4, 2002

Hi, Claudia!

I do not doubt that you have the list you say, but I do not.

I go to Discussion Forums, and my page reads:

ART OF TRANSLATION

Techniques

Literature & poetry

FREELANCERS

Translator resources

Getting established

Being independent

ProZ com translator coop

LOCALIZATION

Localization

NON-ENGLISH

(17 languages listed)

MONEY MATTERS

Money matters

CAT TOOLS

Comparison shopping

Technical Support

PROZ.COM

Suggestions

Bugs

GENERAL TOPICS

Events & announcements

Honors & citations

AGENCIES

Technical Support

Business issues.



So no Special, Powwow Organizers or Off Topic.

Could someone tell me where they are?

I have the same list as Jack Aug 4, 2002

... which doesn\'t include the Off-Topic threads which Claudia can see.



Would be grateful if Claudia or someone else could post a link to what they can see and Jack and I can\'t.

That's really strange ! Aug 4, 2002

http://www.proz.com/?sp=bb/index&eid_

This is the link. At the end it has my registration number but it works without it (for me !)

This is my list.

Jack, didn\'t you miss one language ? If you didn\'t we\'ll have to compare that list too.

I don\'t understand because it\'s not something just for platinum members and Robert is Platinum...No, I don\'t understand.

Thanks, Henry Aug 4, 2002

I tried the link Claudia gives but got the same results as before, tried it myself again from the main page and found that the URL is exactly the same as hers anyway (apart from the member\'s number of course).

Claudia, why do you think I missed a language? My list says 17 languages, so does yours.

Apology to Claudia Aug 4, 2002

Sorry, Claudia, I misread your message. I now see that you were saying you have 18 languages. So have I, i must have miscounted them the first time.

Thanks for the link Claudia Aug 4, 2002

... but even when I use this link I don\'t get the SPECIAL category with Powwow organizers and Off Topic.



Thanks too to Henry for initiating an investigation, particularly since his response came on a Sunday afternoon.

ditto for me Aug 5, 2002

I get the same screen as Jack, Robert, and Cindy. I\'m a MAC person. Could that have something to do with it? I know it shouldn\'t, but there\'s a big green pasture between shouldn\'t and doesn\'t.

PC or MAC? That's not it... Aug 5, 2002

To Alitalia: I\'m a PC person myself (Personal Computer, not Politically Correct), so the fact that you use a MAC would appear to be immaterial.

Could we have an update, please? Aug 9, 2002

Henry, Jason: have you made any progress yet in finding out why some people get one version of the Forum Topics page and some get another, although the URL is identical (apart from member numbers) in all cases?

I don\'t understand how this can be so, and yet it is. Any ideas on the reasons for this would be welcome, and action to remedy the situation even more so.
