Dear ProZ.com Staff,

Noticing an increasing number of errant KudoZ questions and help requests that completely disregard the basic rules & guidelines for the Terminology Help option, I thought perhaps it would be a good idea to add a link to the drop-down menu under "Terminology" (second from the left link at the top of the ProZ main page, next to "Home") that would take site users straight to the KudoZ guidelines & rules on asking. Many errant questions and unnecessary discussions could be avoided this way. Sometimes there are colleagues willing to spend time on explaining why a certain question should be edited or moved or, on occasion, should not have been posted at all, but quite often these questions just sit there unanswered indefinitely. I think all this could be easily avoided if there was a simple way to access the guidelines even *before* such problematic questions appear.

Thank you in advance for considering my suggestion.

Best regards,
Ildiko'

How about building some of the guidelines into the ask form? Jun 8, 2010

Hello Ildiko,

Thanks for the suggestion. I wonder if it wouldn't be more effective to include this information, or the relevant links to the guidelines, directly in the term help asking form at http://www.proz.com/ask/ ?

Best regards,

Jared

Yes, by all means; that would be even better. At the very top, bolded and red. : )
Thanks Jared for your speedy response!
