Hello everybody,

Browsing through Proz.com I keep wishing for a List of Favorites (like in the menu bar on our computers, the one for favorite websites).

This list could link to
- translators' profiles
- agencies
(and even to
- forum entries or
- kudoz questions)
that each of us would like to mark and easily find again.

Of course I can use the search function to the left of the screen. And I do use it. But I keep searching for the same things because I want to look up this forum topic again, that colleagues profile, a certain Blue Board entry, etc.

What do you think?

Stefanie

Good Mar 7, 2004

Stefanie, I think it was something that I had articulated in the past. I'll bring it to the notice of appropriate people and hopefully, we shall have it. It is indeed a good idea.

I see only one advantage compared to the usual Favorites list:
you could use it from any computer.

Do you see another benefit?

Cheers,
Harry

Splendid idea! Mar 8, 2004

Dear Stefanie,

A very good idea indeed. Many of the pages, forum postings and other details aren't accessible from outside ProZ.com (Henry?)

Also, its 'weborientedness' is an asset (Harry_B)

Favourites fill up so quickly Mar 8, 2004

My Favourites menu in Explorer always fills up so quickly, that a site-based favourites menu (my bank has one for example) is a real godsend.

easier navigation, pehaps Mar 8, 2004

Dear Stefanie,

Yes your idea makes sense. Possibly it would also spread traffic across the site and reduce congestion on some pages?
