Language pairs disappeared from job postings, and now from Kudoz too...

First, let me explain I´m still using the "old" design. I´ve tried switch some times, but I´m not able to find my way around the site.

Anyway, since a month or two the format of the job postings (I´m talking about the table on the front page) has been changed, so I´m not able to see which language pairs are asked. I am updated about job from Spanish to Dutch, Dutch to Spanish, English to Dutch and English to Spanish (although I don´t apply to any of the latter, I just want to know what´s available), but in the table the only thing I read is "English" or "Spanish", not clear if that means source or target. Am I the only one to find this confusing?

Today also the language pairs with Kudoz disappeared. Because my page is configured for the same pairs as above, it's not clear at all what is being asked. In this case no language is mentioned, either source or language.

I do not want to send a support ticket, because I don´t know if it's a bug in my version or a site-wide change.

Thanks for your comments

Strange... Jun 26, 2008

...I don't know if I've also missed something important, probably I have. I just realised that my e-mail preferences had been changed from receiving job alerts to NOT receiving any...without me having done anything!

In any case, if we are supposed to be changing something really important, I have not seen important notices about it. Also, I can't understand why those changes to my e-mail preferences were applied just like that. And job postings ARE important to me...

Any hints anybody?

Thank you in advance.


Mariana

PS: I will see whether my e-mail settings are also set to receiving replies in my inbox as they were.

Old site design Jun 26, 2008

Hello Riens,

The issues you mention are in the old site design on the homepage. I will ask our developers to look into this. In the meantime, you may wish to use the new design-- it's not at all difficult to get used to.

Mariana, from just a quick look at your dashboard it looks like everything is in order, but perhaps you have re-set them. If you could submit a support request on the matter, with the details of what happened, it will be easier to look into this. Thanks!

Best regards,

Jared
