Because there is no option for just plain no and I have no plans to either contribute or not to!

because I have no idea what it is

Okay, get it. It is something similar to Wikpedia?
In that case, I can only quote John below!

...on interpretation of the negative, i.e "I don't plan to..." as meaning "I have a plan and that plan is to definitely not...." (= I plan not to) as against what it literally says - I haven't got a plan as regards this topic.

We do this all the time. "I don't think he did" often actually means "I think he did not"... and so on. Not to criticise, just sayingicon_smile.gif

My reasoning Jun 17, 2010

No. The main reason being I spend enough time in front of the computer working. When I'm finished each day (or night), I'd rather being doing anything other than sitting and typing away in front of a screen. It's the same reason I don't use Facebook or other social networking sites or play computer games, etc, ec.

Please visit the ProZ.com wiki and consider contributing to it Jun 17, 2010

The ProZ.com wiki is part of the changes to be made to the ProZ.com job posting system to help improve rates and working conditions for translators.

There is a dedicated forum to discuss on the several wiki pages available.

You can see for example paged dealing with Determining your rates and fees as a translator and Detecting and reacting to false job offers and other scams.

The wiki format presents advantages to the forums, in particular the ability to create a content that is the aggregate of several community members and has more permanence in time than forum thread.

Regards,
Enrique

no, because Jul 15, 2010

I didn’n because english is not the language I know very good. I can read and understand the articles, but my language skills are too poor to contribute.

If there will be a possibility to write also in another languages, I’ll be glad to contribute. I also wrote some articles for Wikipedia in the languages which I can speak better.
