Subject: [BB] ARABLISH is now accepting applications

What applications are meant here? When I go to the BB - i can make an entry on behalf of the outsourcer..but why, if i have never worked with them?

I believe something is a bit wrong here.

Testing a new function Mar 16, 2006

Hi Vladimir,
This is part of a new Blue Board functionality - see the original announcement made in January.

Looks like the ProZ.com team have resumed testing on this - hence, I wouldn't take the notifications sent out tonight for real.

Best regards,
Ralf

yes, this is a testing Mar 16, 2006

Thank you, Ralf, I missed that announcement.

What puzzled me - I could see the "Apply now" link or button when being moved to the BB outsourcer profile. The only option I saw there - "to make an entry".

Or, prob. I missed it.

Thank you,
V.

Thank you, Ralf Mar 16, 2006

Hello,

Ralf is correct, we are in the process of testing the application system notifcations.

It seems the ARABLISH notification leaked through while our testing was going on.

Thanks for mentioning this,
Best Regards,
Justin

What a relief! Mar 16, 2006

And I was trying hard figuring out what to do with this ARABLISH
Thanks, I feel relieved
But what about that Proz call for applications?
Where could I read about the idea of the calls for applications? I feel stupid and don't understand anything.

Only for testing? Mar 16, 2006

Ralph and Justin,

After receiving this ARABLISH notification, I clicked on the BB and found that there were other outsourcers, clicked on the Apply now tab. And everything turned out right!
But if it is all for testing, perhaps I shouldn't have applied. Have I made a mistake?

Best regards,
Silvina

We are testing the system, but it is working.... Mar 16, 2006

Hi Silvina,

The application system has been re-enabled and members are now able to use the 'Apply now' tab again. The system is currently in a *beta* state though, and has not been finalized .

Outsourcers that appear on the 'Apply now' have started to accept applications through our system, and are willing to receive applications from ProZ.com members who meet their qualifications.

As far as the testing goes, please don't be surprised if you notice some bugs while we try to finalize the system.

Best Regards,
Justin

Hello Ralf,
Thanks for the information. It will take some time for me to figure out what is what.
