Hi everybody,
today I have some spare time and I'd like to update my profile on Proz. Unfortunately, I have some problems with an outsourcer who seems unwilling to pay some important projects I worked on in the past months (no comment, pleaseicon_frown.gif) and which I would like nonetheless to list on my profile.

In your opinion, should I list them anyway - without specifying who I did the projects for and (above all) hoping my payment issues will soon be solved?

Thanks for your answers,


P.S.: I am not quite sure whether this is the right forum for this topic...

I don't think it could be a problem Dec 12, 2006

I would see a problem if you decided to list projects done as volunteer and preset them as paid work but in his situation by refraining from listing this jobs you loose twice - first you were not paid (which I hope you'll manage to solve) and than you do not take credit for doing work.

If I were you I would list these projects on my profile however without asking for vetting untill I am paid - obviously you don't want to deal with situation when somone adds insult to the injury and not only not does notpay you but also writes some ugly comments in your profile.

Good luck
