When my KudoZ score reached 100, I discovered I had bouncing rights, however there is one feature which seems to be lacking :


Bouncers can transfer questions between \'easy\' and \'pro\' status, but what about questions that are in the wrong category?


I\'ve noticed that many questions are put in the \'Tech\' section when they are decidedly not technical, or are stuck in \'other\', when they could be put in the correct category.


This would mean that translators really would only received questions that were relevent to them...


Also, in the list of current questions, there could be a column showing this category...

It would be nice to be able to correct language pairs and directions too. Amazing how many of those are off (usually reversed).

Agree with both previous postings. Especially if a question is in other and it shouldn\'t be, if you get the points it won\'t show any expertise in a particular field.

On changing the language pairs, I once pointed out that someone had posted a question to Swahili - English, when they meant Spanish, and he gave me points (although I didn\'t answer the question)! But I really don\'t want that to appear on my profile - it gives people the wrong impression!! (Can it be removed?)
