Is there a way to undo a poll answer? Jun 21, 2009

I read "Have you ever been tired to review translations made by your colleagues", and I immediately pressed "Yes"!
Well... I must be very tired presently.

Many times Jun 21, 2009

Some of my regular clients ask me that every once in a while. It's a great responsibility, because our evaluation will decide if a colleague will be accepted or not.

Ha, ha, ha, bohy,

It's so funny (or may not be so for you, depending on the circustances. I don't know for sure since you did not elaborate).
But to me it is

"tired\hired" mind game Jun 22, 2009

I read it "hired", and when I read your post, I was confused because I thought your are quoting the question correctly. So, finally it is hired !!

Both... in my case Jun 22, 2009

I mean, I have been hired and tired

Bohy, as far as I know, there is no way to revert a reply. Even though the results are close, I don't think 1 vote would create a dramatic change, though. However, I am really curious about the 1.5% who replied 'Other'. You have been either hired or not; anyone has an idea what 'Other' could be?

"other" can be.... Jun 22, 2009

other can mean: i was asked but I refused, I would like to, but nobody hires me. Just joking.

In my case I have been hired, and I have to admit I have been very strict.
