Why are some of my asked questions shown in the "KudoZ term translation questions" table and some aren't?

This morning I asked 2 question in the RU-GE pair, the first was displayed in the "KudoZ term translation questions" table, the second one was not displayed and I found it under Kudos > My Kudoz > Asked only.
Is it a bug?

It is not the first time I am surprised by this phenomenon.

Customizing your homepage and your search results Jun 30, 2008

Hello Sybille,

Remember that the KudoZ questions you see on the homepage are based on the search criteria you have set at http://www.proz.com/kudoz . This is similar for jobs, http://www.proz.com/translation-jobs . You can customize both fields on the homepage by clicking the "Customize" link in the top bar of each box.

I see that the two questions you asked today were in "Tech/Engineering - Engineering: Industrial" and "Bus/Financial - Accounting". The search settings you have saved at http://www.proz.com/kudoz are for your Working, Specialty and Interest fields, which means you will only be viewing KudoZ questions in those fields which you have declared in your profile. As you have not declared "Bus/Financial" as a general field, or "Accounting" as a specific field, you won't see that question with your current search settings at http://www.proz.com/kudoz or on the homepage.

If these are working or specialty fields for you, I would encourage you to declare them in your Profile Updater. If not, but you wish to see them when you search for KudoZ questions or on the homepage, you could select "All fields" for the field search box at http://www.proz.com/kudoz

Best regards,

Jared

Thanks Jul 1, 2008

Thanks, Jared , for explaining.
I did not know that choosing of non-interest, interest, working and specialty fields are influencing the display of questions in the Kudoz table. And I now chose "all fields".
