Currently, and as far as I can tell, the only way to see the contributions made to KOG entries or whether they have been made at all is to click on "Contribute to this entry" on the page of the KudoZ question itself.

When I search the KudoZ open glossary entries, I can see that contributions have been made (although I have to click on "Add comment" to see what comments were made).

These entries appear, however, without any reference to possible contributions in various other places, for example, in the results of term searches.

Neither there nor on the page of the KudoZ question itself is there an indication that contributions have been made to the KOG entry (or even that one has to click "Contribute" to see such contributions).

Would it be possible to make contributions to KOG entries more easily accessible on the page of the KudoZ question and visible elsewhere (e.g., in the search results) or at least make it visible on the page of the KudoZ question that contributions to the KOG entry have been made at all?

Would it also perhaps be possible to add the word "view" (e.g., "Add/view comments") to both the link on the page of the KudoZ question as well as the search page of the KudoZ open glossary?

Thanks for looking into this.

The more discussion, the better. Mar 11, 2011

I will second Derek's proposal. If a colleague has taken the time to comment on a KOG entry that I'm consulting, I want to have access to that comment! The "view comments" proposal would be very useful.

Hi Derek,

I fully agree with your proposal, which has been submitted at least once before (without any implementation so far): http://www.proz.com/forum/kudoz/134153-kudoz_contribute_to_this_entry_whats_the_use.html

Best regards,

Steffen

When I look for reliable information I appreciate every piece of information I can find. KOG looks like an obvious place for opinions and comments.
