I noticed two "Glossary-building KudoZ" questions posted across many language pairs recently (angel's share and Cryptocurrency). Is it an effort to revive this mostly forgotten feature, or is it an experiment of some kind?

I noticed that while the first question (angel's share) showed Jared as the creator of the question:
This question was created by:
Jared Tabor
Argentina

However, the second one (Cryptocurrency) shows this:
This question was created by:
Glossary-building KudoZ


Just curious.

GBK is being reactivated Oct 30

Dear Katalin,

Thank you for your interest!

As you have noticed, GBK is being reactivated by ProZ.com staff members. And you are right, the first question was pulled by Jared's account, but from now on all GBK questions will be pulled by Glossary-building KudoZ, which has been specifically created for this feature.

Have a nice day,
Julieta

Dear Julieta,

What is the difference between a concrete site staff with a name asking glossary terms vs. Glossary-building KudoZ?
Who or what is behind the "Glossary-building KudoZ" profile?
A Proz site staff or a company or an institute or an algorithm?

Bests,
Katalin

Edited for:

I was wondering about the above questions because in the last question (Cryptocurrency) the term was written with a capital first letter. And it should be written with a small letter: cryptocurrency.
This caused a little debate why the English term was written as Cryptocurrency and not cryptocurrency.
So I was wondering whether there is a real human logic behind the asked term questions if they are asked by "Glossary-building KudoZ" and whether context related questions concerning certain terms will be answered?

Glossary-Building KudoZ profile is run by staff members Nov 1

Thanks for pointing that out! The initial capital letter was a mistake and has now been changed to the appropriate small letter.

Glossary-Building KudoZ profile is run by staff members. But rather than using any of the staff members personal account, which serve other purposes, this profile was created to keep better track of Glossary-Building KudoZ activity.

We appreciate any input or feedback.

Have a nice day,
Julieta
