Dear Proz members,

Do you also have such a Proz.com javascript third party application?
I disconnected it but after disconnection I found it again.
Do you also have it?

What is the function of it?

Best regards,

ProZ functionality? Feb 1, 2017

My wild guess is that it's a mechanic behind availability calendar and the like.
However, this app isn't present in my profile, so it may be wrong.

Thank you for your answer Feb 1, 2017

Hi Aleksandra,

Thank you for your answer.
I don't use the calendar feature. So I don't think it has to do with the calendar.
I'm wondering about who else has this third party application on his/her profile?
Because I didn't add it to my profile.

Katalin

There definitely is something Feb 1, 2017

Now I decided to look at your profile and this popped up.

Maybe it is something about various badges in your profile? For example, the first screenshot is with Javascript off

the second with Javascript on.

I was thinking about that as well, but... Feb 1, 2017

Thank you Aleksandra for pointing this out. I thought about that and so I disabled that javascript on my profile.
Still I had this proz.com javascript in manage apps.
Plus why would it be called Proz.com javascript by Proz.com support@proz.com if it was "my" javascript within my About me section?

...your profile is on ProZ, right? You are using this site's features and mechanics, it is the code of the site that allows buttons like that to appear, and this is performed through this app.
For further information, however, I recommend you to contact support directly. Also, if you do not want the app to be there, you should probably disable and delete all dynamic content in your profile.

It seems it has nothing to do with users' added javascripts in the 'About me' section Feb 1, 2017

Thank you Aleksandra for your reply. I have just asked members who also have javascript enabled in the About me section and they don't have this javascript mentioned in their profiles.

Removed from third-party page to avoid confusion Feb 1, 2017

Dear Katalin,

My apologies for the confusion here. The "ProZ.com Javascript" app refers to javascript widgets developed and maintained by ProZ.com on the ProZ.com website which use the API. An example of such a widget, in your case, would be the activity feed on the member dashboard: http://www.proz.com/?sp=member_dashboard

As this may not be considered a "third-party" application, mention of the ProZ.com Javascript app has been removed from that page in order to avoid any confusion.

I hope this explains, but please let me know if you have any other questions.

Best regards,

Maria

Dear Maria,

Thank you for the feedback concerning this issue.

I have found this now: http://www.proz.com/forum/prozcom_translator_coop/308894-plus_features_website_widgets_social_networking.html

It says:

"What happens when you follow someone? This is a new concept at ProZ.com, being released in connection with the Plus package. A soon-to-be-released dashboard (preview: http://www.proz.com/?sp=member_dashboard ) includes an activity feed. When someone you follow posts a KudoZ question, organizes a powwow, and so on, notice of that will appear in your feed."


When the follow option was added on proz.com I immediately opted it out.
So was this third party javascript added by proz.com a kind of follow my activity feed even though I opted out the follow/and to be followed feature?

Best regards,
Katalin

I confirm that you are opted out of that feature Feb 2, 2017

Dear Katalin,

I had missed that you had already opted out of the Follow feature, sorry about that. I confirm that you have indeed been opted out of it. The Javascript app you saw was certainly not intended to keep you from being able to opt out of that feature. The app simply refers to Javascript code used in several ProZ.com site features, and has been removed from the site's list of third-party apps to avoid this type of confusion.

Best regards,

Maria

Thank you, Maria Feb 2, 2017

Thank you for removing it.
Would you mind letting me know what was the function of that javascript?
Because I found it some weeks ago, and I disconnected it, and then it appeared and it was enabled again.
I understand that now it is removed, but what was the function of that javascript on my profile?

Best regards,
Katalin

It was Skype Jan 30

Together with Catalin, we found that Skype inserts this script automatically to create interactive buttons.

We managed to disable it by moving through text with arrow keys and, while standing near the script icon, delete it as a usual letter.
