Dear members,

Following several reports of abusive use of the discusson entries feature by answerers, a new FAQ has been added:

Question:
Under what conditions can an answerer use the discussion entries feature?

Answer:
Answerers can use the discussion entry to ask the asker for context information or to engage in linguistic discussions of some points of the question asked. In general, opinions on other answers should be provided in the peer grading interface while additional comments supporting their answers should be presented as comments in the answers themselves. Systematic use of the discussion entry to promote an answer provided will not be allowed.

It is expected that this will clarify this issue and help prevent furter abuse of this feature. Rules enforcement based on this clarification on current rules http://www.proz.com/siterules/kudoz_general/1.3#1.3 , http://www.proz.com/siterules/kudoz_answ/3.4#3.4 and http://www.proz.com/siterules/kudoz_answ/3.6#3.6 will not be applied retroactively.

Regards,
Enrique
