Clients visiting through a link to my ProZ-profile have no other means of escaping than manually editing the URL. I'd be in favour of a Home button in my profile.

Regards,
Gerard

Not only your clients Jun 10, 2005

Whenever I visit any translator's page I have to click on 'Back'. I agree that a Home button would be great there.

It could be that there's a reason for this... Jun 10, 2005

I always just assumed that it was because the site wanted the personal pages to function as homepages for each member. After all, you wouldn't want to give a potential customer your link, and then have him/her navigate around the site and find *another* translator.

This never bothered me because I always assumed it was a rational choice on the part of the site.

Maybe someone from the site staff can expalin it to us...

Dead ends Jun 10, 2005

I have noticed a few instances in which one comes to a dead end. This is also the case when finished filling out a survey - all of the sudden you're at the end with no where to go. Hitting the back button doesn't really help because the previous page can not be loaded without "sending the information again". Some kind of "Home" button (on all pages) really would help.icon_smile.gif

I remember that it was explained once, long ago.

If I use the link to my profile page as a promotional tool in my signature, for instance, when I bid (outside ProZ), I wouldn't appreciate that thanks to me the client finds a mine full of translators and forgets about me and how he reached Proz.com.

no that hard.. Jun 17, 2005

for your potential customer to just type www.proz.com which is the address they would see in the address bar. But I agree that not everybody would think about that.
