Just a couple of small suggestions regarding the layout of the summary for Kudoz questions asked and answered (I am referring to the summaries that appear when one clicks on “My Kudoz” and then on “ASKED” or “ANSWERED”): During the last couple of days I observed two changes on those summary pages that I liked a lot but that unfortunately have been removed again. I am referring to two things:

(1) In the status column, behind “open” or “closed” it said how many answers there were for each question.

(2) Different background colours were used for open and closed Kudoz questions (pink and yellow, respectively).

Both changes were good because they added to the clarity and improved the design. It would therefore be nice if they could be put back.

My third suggestion is to add a function with which to display only one’s open Kudoz questions, making it easier to keep track of questions that still need to be graded. (Otherwise the open Kudoz questions may be “buried” under a mountain of already graded Kudoz questions and can thus easily be overlooked).

Thanks to the staff for considering my suggestions.

Kind regards,

Olaf

Totally agree! Nov 5, 2006

Those useful features disappeared when the new profile format was introduced. I really hope they will be restored. Please, ProZ.com Staff, please...

That's one of the reasons why I still refer to the old profile format Nov 5, 2006

Indeed, I find the new one is not at all clear in this respect.

Hi Olaf,

I still see different background colours for my closed and open questions. Closed questions have a background in brighter pink. I don't remember having yellow colour...

I think this is a good idea. Recently, I tried to "clean up" my Kudoz list by closing open questions and making KOG entries. I stopped after seven pages because there were just so many pages to go through. It would really be nice if we could view only the open questions or "unglossed" questions.

Hello Olaf. Agree with your suggestions above. Actually, I would prefer to having some sorting function in place, i.e. I can sort questions alphabetically or based on open/closed, date, language pair, or any combination of these criteria. At minimum, I want to be able to separate open questions from closed ones.

Hi,
you can use the kudoz box that appears before the list of kudoz questions to sort them by specific criteria:

for example you can set
"my questions" in *personal* and "open" in *status*

Ciao, D.
