Would it be possible to add a link to WWA when you add an entry for the client in the Blue Board? It would be logical to ask for endorsement after you have provided it...

Thanks for an excellent suggestion! Feb 6, 2008

Dear Jabberwock,

Thanks for an excellent suggestion. This will be part of the features included in the new page dedicated to WWA, announced at http://www.proz.com/topic/96295 and to be released during the current month.


Kind regards,
Enrique

But please make it clear to freelancers that some outsourcers such as ourselves do not support either the BB or the WWA and will not be willing to reciprocate.

Ciao,
Cilian

I doesn't seem right to me.

Correct me if I'm wrong but it sound too much like a mutual admiration society, or " you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours".

I'd be interested to hear other opinions.

Well... Feb 6, 2008

Oh, but it is! And it was always that way... That is why I have not used this feature before.

However, as now you can be left out of the searches when you do not have WWA (which might be seen as questionable, but is discussed somewhere else), I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon...

You're right Jabberwock, of course Feb 7, 2008

My first response to your comments was "Cynic!" and laughter. Why do I expect anything better.

I myself have been "invited" to review an agency on blueboard to counteract a negative review it had received. And though I did not respond myself, the next day there were twenty reviews saying what a wonderful agency it is to work for, which was patently a lie.

Oh well, if you can't beat them, join them I suppose.
