I have one suggestion for the Agency Blue Board. I would like someone to change the system so that we can update the information for agencies. Under the current system, we cannot alter the agency information, such as address, phone number, fax number, URL, and e-mail contact address. The person who had first entered the agency might not know those pieces of information in detail, but others may know them. In addition, the information is changing all the time.

Currently, if someone wants to update the information of an agency, what do we have to do? Do we have to contact a ProZ.com staff member to ask him/her to change it?

I understand that someone may \"intentionally\" change the information if we can freely \"update\" it, and that we should avoid that.

Any good opinion, either from colleagues or from a ProZ.com staff member?

maybe changing by a moderator Jan 23, 2003

Maybe it is useful to add a new button, which send a mail to a moderator with changing information.

I like your suggestion Jan 23, 2003

Good morning,

I like your suggestion. I think that there should also be an indicator as to \"when\" (what date) the Agency\'s original contact information was modified or when details have been added.

I agree with Nathalie Jan 23, 2003

Good idea to include dates of any changes to the Blue Board.

Many people seem to agree to this idea, now ... Jan 24, 2003

Thanks everyone. I also like DSC\'s and Natalie\'s ways, and the bottom line is that we need a kind of function to update the contact information.

I have not seen the opinions from the ProZ.com staff members. Is this idea now going to be incorporated as a new feature in the Agency Blue Board? I would like to here more from the operation side.
