With the latest comprehensive Kudoz update, many new features have been included, and then amended according to the comments, suggestions and criticism received. All in all, the trend is very positive.

Now we have some of the details of answerers in parts of the Kudoz V3 and beta designs. I suggest that much more can be done to improve the quality of Kudoz for all participants, and the value of the glossary for future reference.

IMHO, there is an easy way to have the option of seeing all relevant details of any Kudoz participant (Asker, Answerers, Commenters, Editors, Reclassificators, Ask-Askers, etc., i.e. anyone whose name appears on the question page), without having to switch back and forth to the profile pages:

A "display-only-on-mouse-over-name" box containing the details - in the form of icons if appropriate - that each member previously has selected to be shown, such as:

1. Country
1. Registered member (since ....)
2. Platinum member (since ...)
3. Identity verified
4. Native language(s) declared
5. Native language verified
6. Working language pairs
7. Years experience
8. Credentials reported
9. Credentials verified
10. Total Kudoz points earned (PRO - non-PRO)
11. Total Kudoz points in language pair (PRO - non-PRO)

"Points in field" could also be added, although I think they are not very meaningful since a large number of terms asked are not really specific to the field in question.

I would very much appreciate your opinion !

I like the idea. It would make the page appear less crowded and it would make more room for the answer itself, which now seems to be squeezed into a narrow space by all those superfluous details about the asker. In my opinion, the information about "points in field" is not really relevant, it can be easily left out of the picture.

Excellent idea Aug 30, 2005

And... what about specifying the translator's name (and surname) next to his "Identity Verified..."? It is very important for me.
I really don't care about the information about "points in field" I do not think it is relevant either.

Kindest regards,

"Screen names" Aug 30, 2005

should at least be supplemented with real names, if not done away with altogether.
