Right now, when users look at their answered Kudoz table, they are chronologically sorted, by default. It would be great to conceive it as a spreadsheet where translators cans sort their answered Kudoz in several ways:
- alphabetically
- chronologically
- language pairs
- etc.


and, by the way, I was thinking that these sorts would also be great in each forum so we can sort posts:
- alphabetically, per user
- chronologically (current mode)
- alphabetically (topic)
- number of replies
- number of views

The green box shows the current mode, chronologically.

It would be useful to sort Kudoz alphabetically and , frankly, faster than any search process. The red box shows the first letter of each entry, a real disaster. It would be marvelous if we had a button to sort our Kudoz alphabetically. The same happens with the black box related to pairs.

Kind regards!

After sorting it. Sep 14, 2010

After alphabetically sorting it, we would get something like this image:

We could do the same for the fields: pair, Kudoz, Date, Level, Gloss, status, etc, converting it into a real dynamic Kudoz table, ready to be sorted in several ways.

Selected answer of Kudoz Sep 15, 2010

We recently discussed about Kudoz system fraud. I am afraid your sorted table will miss certain mistakes of many answers. Many answers are obviously wrong both in context and in professional doctrine. I expected a deeper analysis of the answering processes.

Hi, Soonthon.

The purpose is just to sort them according to several criteria. Of course it will not linked to the accuracy of Kudoz answers.

By the way, I think we could sort the entries in the forums according to the number of replies and views too. Right now, we can only read them chronologically.

Have a nice day!
