Hi all,

I have 2 propositions regarding the profile information and also Kudoz...

1. As a corporate member, I noticed that we need to include a supplementary and customizable phone number in our contact form in order to refer customers depending on their geographic zone.

2. Is it possible to add how many times a question was seen? This would help the asker to take his decision, especially when there is only one answer for his question. This would give also an information about the interest on the term and its importance.


Thanking you in advance.

Oussama

Hi Oussama,

I don`t think that is relevant.

A question and the one only answer may be seen 100 times, but if no comments or new answers are left, it doesn`t mean a thing. It may mean that other people are interested in the same term, or that others tried to answer but couldn't find a more proper answer and were not sure enough to leave an agree/disagree/neutral comment, or that somebody was browsing the questions trying to help or just out of curiosity, and so on....

I fail to see how this feature might help the asker in taking a decision. Before closing the question and adding a term to the glossary, the asker considers answers posted, comments posted under the question or in the discussion area, his/her previous research on the term, his/her own backgroung on the field, and the context that only he/she fully knows.

The number of times my questions was seen is not something I would consider at all when looking for a proper translation or having to close a question.
