Dear Fellow Freelancers,

Actually my idea is based on the newly applied automatic reloading on a well-known email services provider.

With the mechanism, a user does not have to check his/her Inbox every time because it reloads automatically every ten minutes. Thus, he/she will not miss any incoming email.

Similarly, I am really interested in the threads posted daily on Forum and do not want to miss any of them.

Is it possible to apply an automatic reloading to ProZ.com pages?

What do you think of this idea?

Thank you very much for your responses.

Best Regards

Hipyan

Externally Possible May 8, 2007

Hipyan,

If we use Firefox, it's possible.
See https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/115

Use IE?: http://quomon.com/question_Auto_refresh_Internet_explorer_web_pages_23.aspx
http://grizzlyweb.com/webmaster/javascripts/refresh.asp#version2">here.

Internally Proz.com internal team can develop the sites so we don't have to...

IMHO

It does work May 8, 2007

It does work, Hikmat. I downloaded the Firefox Addons.

Unfortunately, I could not find that for IE.

Anyhow, thanks so much for that great link.

Be Careful though! May 8, 2007

Hipyan,

Be careful not setting the parameter too often, or the sites will block your IP due to excessive and short interval download of the site.

You can track an entire forum and get notified by email. May 8, 2007

The way of being updated of new thread is tracking the forums.
Every new thread will be notified by email.
This way, you will not loose any of them.

Best,
Gastón

Thank You Himat and Gaston May 9, 2007

To Hikmat: I set the interval of every 5 minutes. Is it alright?

To Gaston: Forum notifications seem to place more burden on my Inbox, not to mention everyday spams and scams.

I prefer an automatic reloading of the home page, which consists of three important components - translation jobs, KudoZ questions, and translator forums, so that I can selectively respond to anything newly emerged of the three that interests me.

Best Regards

Hipyan

Five Minutes Should Be Alright May 9, 2007

Hipyan: Five minutes is ok...don't be several times in a minute, the site will block you.
Good luck!
