I really do believe that all jobs that are now coming in for platinum members are fine, and if I decide to upgrage that is just cool. But at the same time if platinum members are considered to be better than guests members, then I feel that other members looking for info on certain agencies should be restricted to platinum members only as well, as obviously they are they are the only people who have the correct experience. Either we are respected as members of this group or not, but abusing our experience as freelancers and not members should stop!

As far as I know, no one has said that paying members are "better" than non-paying members. (If anyone has said it, they should not have.) Therefore, I do not see any merit in this proposal. After all, non-paying members also use the Blue Board.

Check your email settings Jul 7, 2003

Hi Linda,
Note that I disagree with your statement that email notifications for the Blue Board are "abuse".

It's very easy to stop receiving them - just edit the email settings in your profile (uncheck the top box under "Other notifications"). Simple, really...icon_wink.gif

Make provision for limitation of countries in Blue Board notifications Jul 8, 2003

I think this has been raised before, but at a time when a lot of redesigning of the site is in progress, it might be worth mentioning again.
I am willing to help with the Blue Board process, but 99+% of my experience has been of UK agencies, and I would prefer it if my Blue Board notifications could be limited to them.
