HI!
Here is a problem as someone named ryszard matuszewski awarded himself the kudoz points on the question of his own? And answer was totally wrong! Two hindi-eng translators even showed their disagreement on the topic namely shruti nagar and anil goyal.Is there anyone to rectify the error?

Contact the moderator/KudoZ coordinator Jun 13, 2003

Hi Prakaash,
The person you should normally contact in such a case is the moderator for the language pair concerned. You did not specify the question, but I take it this is Hindi>English, which does not have a moderator.

You can either contact a moderator in a related pair, or the KudoZ area coordinator - check herefor coordinator/moderator details.

HTH - Ralf

He can block the prankster if the IP numbers are the same of asker and awarder. We've had several of these types who think they're so smart. They're inevitably found out as their answers are so poor and still miraculously get awarded KudoZ.

Paltergeist at proz :) Jun 13, 2003

That gives a good laugh though. I know of a question where the asker himself provided a poor answer to his own question, had many disagrees and another answer had a serious number of positive peer gradings. As a result the asker had to agree that the other answer was better but still awarded kudoz to his own answer. He's still lurking in proz in invisible mode as a ghost though.
to be continued....

Thanks for valuable suggestion and information! Jun 14, 2003

Thank you very much for the valuable information you forwarded. I was also confused as hindi-eng pair has no any coordinator.
