Hi,

A couple of months ago I created a directory TEXT AD, being one of Henry's tips to attract clients , as mentioned in his article http://www.proz.com/translation-articles/articles/79/1/To-win-jobs-online--specialize!). However, my text ad is still only visible in the OLD directory, not in the new one. When will it be visible in the new directory? I don't think many clients will consult the old directory. Not that I don't have enough clients as it is, but still... I would like it to be visible... or get my money back.

Same issue Jan 24, 2006

Hi Antoinette:

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

I had the same issue, albeit only a couple of days ago. (I never thought of looking in the old directory.) I submitted a ticket, which is being dealt with.

Fingers crossed - I am confident it will be sorted.

Cheers
Chris

Same here ........ Jan 25, 2006

Hi Antoinette,

Yes, thanks for bringing this up.

It serves little purpose if the text ad is in the old directory as that will be phased out and outsourcers will be checking the new one first anyhow.

I'd also appreciate some feedback from site management.

Message from staff Jan 25, 2006

Hi Textklick and Deborah,

I just had a message from a staff member:

"Text-ads should be visible by the beginning of April. I know you would like to see them sooner, and I promise you that we will try to do our best to have the new directory have the before them April..but we should have them ready no later than the first week in April."

So... let's be patient...
