In vain have I tried to cancel all notifications from this site (PD team), but they keep flowing into my junk folder. Each message says I can uncheck notifications, but lately there is not even a link to Account on the home page.
I tried to get someone there to remove me from their system, but haven't got any response so far.
Anyone who can help?

Block it! Jul 11, 2017

Can you block it directly from/in your mail system?

They are really spamming! Jul 11, 2017

After having deleted some of their messages, I've got 102 emails from them since July 3th. All their job offers are below my rates.

I was thinking also how can I do to get rid of them... or just to receive only those offer with my rate.

Regards

Clarisa

I find these messages annoying as well! Jul 12, 2017

The fees offered for these projects range from low down to insultingly low.

So I also have been thinking about requesting that I receive no further notifications.

Over and apart from the dreadful rates, I find such a "cattle-call" system of dealing with translators tremendously off-putting.

There is a help desk for this PD system that you should be able to contact to request that these notifications be turned off. There should be a link to it in the e-mails you get, or within the system itself after you log in.

Good luck.

The problem is I cannot find a link to log in. The homepage deals only with customers and translators who would like to join the team.

@Heinrich Jul 12, 2017

Below is the text of an e-mail I received from PD yesterday. The URL on the second line below is a hot link that takes me to the login page. When I log in, I then am taken to the page where I can accept/decline/negotiate the project fee. On the login page, there is also a "password restore" link.

The text "Submission Owner" (fourth line from bottom) is also a hotlink that takes me to the help desk.

I hope this helps.
