In Spanish... Jul 22, 2005

...sin duda, para mí, uno de los grandes éxitos de ProZ: las preguntas, y las respuestas. Desde que conocí el sitio, pues venga, soy prozadicto. Me encanta ayudar, investigar, responder, meter la pata y, cuando acierto, recibir mis puntitos que, a mí, no me sirven de mucho en mi especialidad, pero bueno... habré hecho mi buena acción del día. No olvido tampoco las acaloradas discusiones...
También sigo de cerca los foros, claro, e intervengo cuando me lo permiten mis limitados conocimientos.
Finalmente, es de destacar los lazos que se crean gracias a ProZ: no conozco al Oso, ni al lobo Gilles Meunier, ni a JLDSF, ni a Henry Hinds, ni a Aurora, ni a muchos otros, pero ya los considero amigos... conocí personalmente a Thierry Lotte en Barcelona, y a Claudia Iglesias en Santiago de Chile... los Powwows también son un excelente medio de conocerse, por cierto.
Gracias, ProZ, y al gran jefe Henry.

I like Kudoz for many reasons:
1.- I feel I can help others.
2.- They are challenges.
3.- I earn points. This is a plus in my ProZ CV.
4.- I learn about many subjects. Sometimes I see a question, I don't know the answer, but I take a look in order to satisfy my curiosity.
5.- This is a kind of exam or continous improvement. Many colleagues around the world can evaluate my answers, both by agreement or disagreement. This way I stay alert and fresh when I'm not working.
6.- When I answer a question, I compare it with other options and many times I find there are different ways to say the same thing, so I add some phrases to my vocabulary.
7.- Finally, as Juan Jacob says, I have met many interesting people, some of them I consider my friends, no matter If I only talk with them by KudoZ of Forums.

Too few Jul 25, 2005

I'm sure Henry will be interested in the results. Too bad only about 100 members voted.

Give it time, Dan Jul 26, 2005

I'm just getting into the swing of these polls, and I'm sure others are a little slow to take them up as well. Be patient, Dan, because now that ProZ.com has built it, they will comeicon_wink.gif

I'm glad to see that some are addicted enough to write small essays on the subject! Thanks everyone.

Nancy

I'm so sorry that I missed this poll, as it seemed to be the most interesting so far. I think the time has been too short... Other polls last longer, don't they?
Anyway, the forums are my favouriteicon_smile.gif
