I\'m happy to provide help wherever I can, however my inbox seems to be filling up with requests for information on agencies in Israel, the US and all sorts of other countries that I have absolutely no professional dealings with.



Would it be possible to incorporate a feature into the blue board agency information requests such that the recipient of the information request can specify that they only want to receive requests for agencies in a specific/a few specific countries?



Just a suggestion....

Not much point to be country-specific as you never know where your next job might be coming from. Dec 13, 2002

I really like the Blue Board section as it weeds out any \'baddies\'. It has been my experience that once you are done with responding to E-mails about the Blue Board, that\'s the end of it. In the meantime, just delete them if you don\'t have any news. Actually, I have turned off the automatic E-mails from Proz because of lack of time. But again, I really think we have a collective duty to keep the Blue Board up to date.

Good idea Dec 13, 2002

I would be happier only to receive such requests for agencies in the UK. I immediately delete those from anywhere else.

- I turned off the blue board notifications a long time ago, because I received a lot of e-mails regarding agencies in countries I would hardly ever get job from (simply because of my language combination).



have a nice day everyone
