Choices were less, contents were simple and was easy to operate. Rather it was a knowledge base site. Now, Proz is pro-professionals so the change is inevitable. Therefore, I will say that proz.com is moving with the time, keeping pace with future.
And also, it is a universal rule that only constant thing in this world is CHANGE.

No pro/non-pro nonsense and context was requested.
While searching for my language terms on the net, I visited proz.com first in 2003 accidentally and I registered quickly. It was love at first site.
But there were not many people from my native language, Marathi on this site. Hardly, I used to get answers on Kudoz to my urgent queries. So I used to post queries in my national language for some terms. But sometimes, I used to feel that Kudoz answer that I am getting is not the exact word that I want to use in my translation service.
Also, just because there are no two agree comments on the Kudoz that I answered, I did not get Kudoz points in my language pair (These Kudoz questions are still open).
Meanwhile, I wrote articles about proz on the net.
Now, after 7 years, I see that more and more people from my community are joining proz. Hope someday, Kudoz question in my language pair will have 10+ answers from different translators.
Looking forward to that day and wishing proz.com the best.
