Since yesterday (13 July) I no longer receive any e-mails from ProZ - neither KudoZ questions nor job postings, even though there are some that match my languages. I checked my profile and I\'m still registered to receive them.

Can you explain?

We have not had a problem lately, so it may be that you have noticed questions or jobs which were in your language pairs, but not necessarily in your areas of expertise. In the case of KudoZ questions, level is also taken into consideration: if you have not indicated that you want \"easy\" questions, for example, those won\'t be mailed to you.

In the case of jobs, there are many more factors that are considered, including your country, the software you report owning, whether or not you are acredited, etc.

In other words, just because a job or question is in your pairs, you will not necessarily receive email notification of it.

To ensure that you get the most useful job and question notification, make sure that all of your profile information is up to date.

If you want to play it safe, just check the homepage of ProZ. There you will see all recent jobs that have been posted - just in case, you have not been notified by e-mail, but would still like to bid on one of these jobs.

As for keeping one\'s profile updated, well, that is also up to ProZ. I have been waiting for probably close to 5-6 weeks now to have my accreditations \"confirmed\" in my profile. I was told it would be done \"shortly\", but so far nothing has happened. So, if an outsourcer specifies \"accreditation confirmed\", I will not be notified of that particular job even though I am accredited!!!

And I have actually faxed copies of my certificates to the ProZ office. So, what else are we to do as ProZ members??????? I have done my share of keeping my profile updated; the rest is up to ProZ.

As a matter of fact, it seems that the confirmation of credentials may be withheld on purpose - to strengthen the position of certain other ProZ members that may be completely and utterly unqualified (no degree in translation, no accreditation, etc.). More and more, it feels like that those that have all their credentials in place are getting a raw deal through this site..... I smell a rat and a \"plot\"........

I have been facing the same problem for about fifteen days now, but I put the blame on my email account or something of the sort. Now I think it is not (an email matter), though I can\'t figure out what is wrong.
