Dear All,


I\'ve noticed lately some of the answers to the KudoZ questions disappearing after a day or two. I\'m not sure how or why this happens, but since I can see a little \"hide x\" at the bottom of my posting(s), I suspect this is a newly (?) added feature to hide my suggestion. Can someone please explain, since the KudoZ FAQ link only gives me a pop-up window with an error message: \"Fatal error: Call to undefined function: getstrings() in /home/pages/proz/inc/item/inc_item_faq_kudoz.php on line 2\"


TIA,


Ildiko V-W

P.S. As a second thought, why would anyone hide their answer? In light of the other postings? Is this fair?

I don't know what happens with your "hiding" facility... Mar 27, 2002

But I give you some of the reasons somebody might want to hide their answer:


-Answer was wrong and answerer has realised too late (we are all humans and sometimes post an answer before reading the question properly, thus missing the real context!)


-Answer was given in the wrong target language. It has happened to me three or four times: getting a question to translate from English into German, but I gave the answer in Spanish! The Germans almost threw me out of the window (metaphorically).


This two kind of mistakes have happened when I first began to use KudoZ. Now I am much more careful. I always send an e-mail to the asker (if possible) apologising for my mistake and explaining the reasons why I\'ve hidden my answer.


To get that function, maybe you should contact ProZ support!


Good luck!
