I posted a maths Q in ProZ in the EN>EN section...twice...and it's disappeared ...twice!

I have 4 Qs open....according to the site, although I have actually closed them, and I DID notify ProZ about one of them remaining 'open', but nothing

Can anyone explain this curious disappearance?

What about your question: if you need help with understanding the

What about your question: if you need help with understanding the mathematical problem underlying the source text you are translating, I would suggest posting this in the forums (Off-Topic, for example).

P.S. What about the disappearance of the squashed questions from the KudoZ tab: I agree that the squashed questions should be visible on the list (as they were in the old profiles); I'll submit a support request asking the site programmers to correct this problem
