I like the WWA feature. It gives prospective outsourcers who view my profile a quick impression about my professionalism and reliability. However, since it was instituted, I've noticed that clients have been less willing to corroborate projects I've posted.

As I understand it, if I use both features, an outsourcer will receive two e-mails: one requesting corroboration of the project and one requesting WWA feedback. I suspect that outsourcers are reluctant to take the time to respond to both.

I'd like to suggest combining the two features in such a way that the outsourcer receives only one email and needs to visit only one site to respond.

What do you think?

I agree. I think the e-mail message should be concise.
