Hiya.

I edited my profile yesterday and it seemed to me that it uploaded fine. However now the old version appears again

Have I messed up something? Can I recover it? (just guess: I didn't save the new profile anywhere, duh!!)

Thanks in advance

Profile free text area Mar 23, 2006

Hi Jerónimo!

Thanks for pointing this out, I made a change earlier today that put the two free text fields (background and specialization) into one field. Your changes should be visible now.

Sorry for the confusion!

Best Regards,
Justin

Thanks & One question Mar 24, 2006

Thanks Justin, it's back to new (if that makes any sense) now!

Now, question: Are specialization and background going to be merged permanently or this is just a trial?

Thanks again,
Jero

Availabilty calendar Mar 24, 2006

Hi Justin,

I like the new profiles and I love the new availabilty calendar so much that I plan to use it and want to link to it from my own site. I would love to have a URL that points to the contact tab in visitor view.

Would
http://www.proz.com/?sp=profile&sp_mode=contact&eid_s=38122&visitor=1
do the trick?

Even better would be a URL to the visitor view of the page I get when I click [more] underneath the availabilty calendar. Couldn't you make that page a real one, with an address, toolbars and a ProZ.com Home | Translator & Interpreter Directory header and all? Editing would be easier and I could link to it from my own site.

Regards,
Gerard

Yes, they are to be merged permanently Mar 24, 2006

Hi guys,

when I click on my name in the 'user info' box on the top left, I'm taken to the old profile. Is this nornal? I'm logged in.


I think you are talking about the new profile format that members can check (/profile) vs the current profile (/pro). Everything on the site is still pointing to the /pro link. When Jerónimo says 'new profile' he is referring to the new information he entered into his free text area a couple days ago. Sorry about the confusion.

Are specialization and background going to be merged permanently or this is just a trial?


Yes, these are going to be merged permanently. In essence, the two fields have been used for the same purpose over the years, a free text area for users to put in their own information. To achieve consistancy between the new and old profile *formats*, these two fields have been merged together.

Hope this answers your questions!

Best Regards,
Justin

New profile page Mar 24, 2006

Hi Justin,

I think that the colum showing:

Contact user: Email, ProZ.com messenger
Make payment: Paypal
User's local time: 24 Mar 16:58 GMT +100

is too close to the first column. If you'r not planning to use the third, empty, column, two columns would be better and easier on the eyes.

Regards,
Gerard
