I have just logged in on my IGoogle page which I find extremely useful and I had a thought - how wonderful it would be if Proz.com came up with some Google gadgets http://code.google.com/apis/gadgets/index.html

And for example if I could see the latest forum posts or maybe the latest jobs or Kudoz questions in a small window somewhere on my IGoogle page. I understand that you want to maximize traffic on Proz.com but I think that such gadget would not divert traffic away from your homepage but rather increase it - realistically there are many more people who keep open IGoogle tab all day long than people who do the same with www.proz.com but once something interesting would appear in such gadget going to Proz.com would take just one click.

Best Regards
Stanislaw

My full support. Also it would help to promote ProZ.

Was going to ask about the same May 6, 2008

I'm building my first website and wanted to ask ProZ.com, if I could have a link in the form of box with ProZ logo and job postings in my language pair. Obviously, once the posted job is clicked on, people would be redirected to ProZ.com website.
I will submit a support ticket about and will let you know.
