Hello everybody out there!

I have two suggtestions. I think both have not been made yet. If I am wrong, please accept my apologizes and let me know it, please. Thank you!

1st. one: You can flag or filter colleagues by just clicking under their names in a kudoz-question. What about outsources or agencies? I think it would be a great feature if any individual could get this information or not being bothered by it.

2nd.: Sometimes I see that a Kudoz-question gets no answer, but hundreds ;o)) of explanations (including suggestions) at its discussion forum. Why not making possible to start a discussion related to a question when at least one answer has been given (no matter who has given it?)

What do you think about it?

Have a great weekend!

Regards,
Helena

Hi Helena,

The main purpose of "help" KudoZ is to provide help to the asker. Delaying the availability of discussion entries would go against this objective.

Also, the discussion box is used by answerers to request more context and for askers for providing clarifications. These features need to be available since the moment the question was asked.

Regards,
Enrique

You are definetely right. Why didn't I think of it on my own??? I use these forum in that way also!

Please disregard my second suggestion. It was a bad one. Thank you!

Many greetings to you and your family, Enrique! (Hope to see you soon again!)

My very best wishes,
Helena

This would make the lives of everyone involved easier.

Personally I think the discussion should be open from the beginning as it is now: in so many cases you want to clarify the matter at hand before entering an answer. If more people want to enter the discussion, it might get a bit long before the question is even clear enough...
