It's me again. First of all, thank you for your answers to my last posting, the one about not getting too many job offers here at proz.com. One of the things I really like about this site how great everyone is, always willing to help and give advice. Thanks!!

Following one of your pieces of advice, I'm trying to get my KudoZ points up. I just have 8, but I guess everyone starts with just a few. My question is: why is it that my points do not appear in the ranking directory? In my home page it reads 8, but when I go to the English>>Spanish directory I'm on the last page with 0 in the column "KudoZ points in pair". Why is that happening? I must have made somekind of mistake, or there must be some option I didn't click.

Well, thanks in advance

Points are in Spanish-English Aug 31, 2007

Hi Alan,

You haven't made any mistake. The thing is, you earned points in the Spanish-English language pair. "Pair" only refers to one direction, which in this case is Spanish > English.
Therefore, you will see those points in the Spanish-English freelancer directory only, not in the English-Spanish freelancer directory.

Kind regards,

Hi Alan... Aug 31, 2007

It takes a few hours (days?) for your points to appear on the server which supplies info to the main pages. You can be patient, or you can do the following:

When you are on the "My KudoZ" page, there is an option (for members only) to "update my totals now (slow)". If you click this (sometimes you may need to do it twice), you will find your total updated when you return to your page. Don't forget to "Refresh" the page, though.

Welcome to "KudoZ-ing" (much better than normal dozing!)


OOps! I didn't read your comment carefully enough! Antoinette has given you a more appropriate response. Good luck, anyway.

ranking is as per professional level points earned Sep 1, 2007

HI.......... There is one more thing for you to remember. Directory Ranking is as per the professional level points earned by you, so if the 8 points earned by you are not rated professional level points (you get professional level points for answering PRO rated questions) your ranking will not take them into account.

Best of luck,
