I\'ve also noticed that when selecting \"asker history\", I get me and not the asker. But after having done this, I noticed that I have a question listed as posted and non-graded (Oct 10). As I received no satisfactory answer to this question and suspected that it was a trade name, I asked for it to be closed in an orderly manner so that I could contact the client. This has apparently not happened. Please advise.

This is a problem Dec 30, 2001

The \"asker history\" feature should show the actual asker\'s history, not yours. The purpose of this feature should be to show potential clients the questions that translators have asked in the past. This would give outsourcers a quick look at a) the language skills, b) the translation/research skills and c) the professional standards of a translator. It would, thus, shine a very bright light on some of the \"unnecessary\" questions posted by, supposedly, \"professional translators\".

As many have already stated, the questions would be more \"telling\" than any of the KudoZ answers given.

I like the idea behind the asker history new feature, and it would be useful to have it both in the Kudoz page and in the profile page.

However, I am currently getting my own history rather that the asker\'s; I guess it\'s a bug?

I'm having the same problem.... Jan 8, 2002

... i.e., seeing my history instead of the asker\'s, and it would be nice if it were fixed soon. A few of the people who have no problem with answering dozens of questions in a row from the same asker might actually stop and think twice about it if they saw that many of these abusers haven\'t even bothered to grade past questions.

Sorry, I thought this had been fixed a few days ago (I think I told a few people it had been.)

Anyway, now it is fixed.
