A new blank line has now appeared on the KudoZ answer page under "Target term". The line is not named and clicking on the question mark just brings up "Error. Did not find any information under that ID or name". If you type something in there, it and everything else on the answer page from that point up to & including "Add note" appears in italics.

Hi Jack,

I was just asking myself the same question so thanks for posting it.

Hopefully ProZ staff will explain soon.

Hi Jack Apr 15, 2008

The line was for "language variant", I believe (or something like that). Most probably something happened to it while some site maintenance or programming.

I'll report the bug to the staff - thank you for noticing!

Hello all,

Thanks very much Jack for pointing this out. I will have one of our developers get this fixed.

Best regards,

Should be working properly now Apr 15, 2008

The "Language variant" field is back, and so is its label. Thanks.

Best regards,
