Hello,
I have just posted a job for the first time on Proz.com, and surprisingly, if you click on the job you will see the Historical LWA Average of someone else! that has a 1/5 blue board rating!!! Now noone would quote on my project! I really have no idea how this happened!! I am really mad now!
You can check the job at

Link already noticed and removed Dec 22, 2005

Hello Ziad,

I have no idea how that link was established, either, but I removed it immediately, as soon as I found it. Because this looks like a site programming error, may I recommend that you submit a support request explaining what happened?

I appologise Dec 22, 2005

the link was created automatically by Proz software on bases of similarities in the names. It happens not often, but it happens. As your job didn't require vetting, so it went. It is corrected now. OTOH, jobs that do require vetting, are scrutinized close enough.

Please contact a BB /Jobs moderator directly next time Dec 23, 2005

Hi Ziad,

I am happy the case was solved quickly and have nothing to add in this respect.

In case you need assistance for the Blue Board and Jobs Area (and any member who does of course!) please contact one BB / Jobs moderator next time. We do read threads, but private messages might be noticed and read before notifications for new threads and/or new postings in a thread.


You can find us here

Thank you,


Giuliana

Check who's online Dec 23, 2005

Hi all,
Ziad sent me a message through my profile - however, I had already gone to bed by that time...

Check the online indicator (the green "P" in front of the name) before sending off a message that needs urgent attention.

Best regards,
Ralf
