Probably everyone else knows the answer but my excuse is that I\'m a beginner with Proz!

The scenario: I post a question, someone posts a suggested answer, someone else agrees or disagrees with them. I want to make a comment on the agree or disagree comment. Ho do I do this? It seems impolite just to accept or decline an answer.

You cannot comment on any every single answer/agree/disagree contribution but you can:



1. Add further details to your question, if necessary, using \"Add a note\", which is accessible to the poster.



2. Comment at length at the moment you close the question and assign the points, and many use this moment to thank all answer, sometimes to explain the reason for choosing a particular answer or other further comments.



3. Finally, if the space online is not appropriate, you can send private email

to one or more answerers.



All this, I believe, is more than sufficient to close properly a question.

Seems reasonable - and polite Aug 20, 2002

Thanks for your comments. I do comment at length at the close of the question and explain my reasons for choosing a particular answer. Do the contributors all see this?

I do also send an individual e-mail when the answer has been extra-super!

As for your first point, I\'ll try it next time I pose a question.

All answerers (though not commentators) receive an email with your closing comments.



Regards,

Closing comments Aug 20, 2002

Thanks John for your comment. I am continually amazed by the good will of translators who take time out to reply in detail to questions and forum discussions. This is why I am so anxious to let people know their efforts are appreciated. For example, some weeks ago I replied in great detail to a query only to find that the asker had not commented on or chosen a reply or, perhaps, even looked at the contributions.
