I suggest to implement a new information on the KudoZ listing.


Currently there are 4 columns

1. Time (California)

2. Languages

3. Term

4. No. of answer (or Closed status)


I suggest to add in column 2, next to the language pair, the subject field of the question.


For example:

English-Italian (Medical)

English-Italian (Other)


The space required could be taken away from the third column, currently very large and mostly unused.

Thanks. I also added a form field for more detailed subject area. Nov 15, 2001

In implementing your suggestion, I also added an option for askers to specify in more detail the subject area or areas of their KudoZ term question.


This may be of limited usefulness initially, but I would encourage people to take the extra time to accurately classify each term request with two or three specific subject areas. For example, the term \"alternator\", now filed under the broad topic \"tech/engineering\" could be further classified as a member of the subsets \"automotive,electronics\" (field names should be separated by commas.)
