The message that tells you which answer was chosen to a question you responded to is a great idea. Only one problem... when these messages reach my computer, at least, they don\'t actually tell me the answer that was selected, just repeat the term the asker wanted translating! For example:

\"You proposed a translation for the KudoZ


en l\'état

You suggested: as they currently stand/stood

The asker has awarded points to another

answer. That answer:

en l\'état\"

This happens every time, leaving me none the wiser. Of course, it doesn\'t take long to go back to the question, but can the \"answer selected\" message be fixed please? Or can you tell me what I should do at this end to fix it? Thanks.

Good idea! Nov 6, 2001

I\'d noticed that too! So I assume the problem isn\'t at your end.

If this problem does get fixed, would it be possible to also incorporate the ansker\'s feedback in the e-mail as well.

So you get:

You proposed a translation for the KudoZ



You suggested: stupid

The asker has awarded points to another

answer. That answer:


The asker said:

Thank you

To review, go to:


This could actually reduce site traffic, as people would not have to go back to the site to find out what, if anything, the asker said.
