Nov 1

Since 2 days I saw weird searches on ProzFind: Somali to Somali + special characters and dot com in the deep search part. This search was done so many times I doubt it was done by a person.

Then today when I checked ProzFind I saw this: see the attachment.

Whats going on with ProzFind

The "searches I appeared in" tab is missing.

The same missing tab anomaly happened in September.
In September I sent a support ticket then it was solved.

But I'm wondering whether others experienced or now experiencing this anomaly.

And weird visitors Nov 1

I am also wondering about what kind of crawlers (?) could be viewer type "Virginia, United States", because when I post or send a support ticket about such anomalies these start to visit my profile.
I am also very curious about what happened on this date: 16th of September.
On this date I received many visitors from China, probably crawlers.
Then my proz login was acting weird.
This is the date when I started to receive less and less jobs via my profile.
Jobs = I

Jobs = I mean only those that worth to answer or consider.

And I read that more members and users also started to receive less and less jobs around this date.
I'm quite sure that it has nothing to do with MT or rates.

I sent a support ticket back then. There are many unanswered questions.

Added: I'm not implying on anything, I'm just looking for the real truth.

Another member: Proz Find showed him online when he was not Nov 1

I tested with another member: his profile appears to be online on Proz Find when he is not online.
He doesn't receive almost any job related emails via his profile although in the directory ranking his profile appears on the first page, among top translators.
