Has anyone else noticed that we now have to scroll down about 30 "connect" jobs before reaching the boards that are actually of any interest (jobs in our language pairs, kudoz and the forums).

Despite the message at the top that "you may meet the eligibility requirements to submit an application for the following Connect! job(s)", I can't see myself submitting any bids for Romanian-English medical documents or English-German technical texts.

Here's hoping it's just a blip.....

Change the order of home page items Mar 21, 2008

Hi Jana,

If you go to the bottom of the home page, you'll see a link that says "Change the order of home page items".

Click on it and you will see various options for resizing or hiding some of the elements on the home page, including the Connect feature, although you can't do anything about the sidebars (yet?).

The "Customise" link in the top righthand corner of the item will take you to the same page.

HTH

Giles

Yes, I have Mar 21, 2008

... and it's pretty disturbing. Just click on the "X" mark on the upper right of such box. This will make it disappear.

Connect jobs list Mar 21, 2008

Hello everyone,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention so quickly. I've been working to improve the speed at which we determine your eligibility for any given connect job. During the change over to the new method the filter on the homepage was disabled. The filtering is now active again and the homepage should be more responsive.

I apologize for any inconvenience.

Best Regards,
Andrew
