Hi there,

I just received the following e-mail:

"An asker has added a note to a question you answered
or are tracking.

-------------------------------------------------
Term: rigueur
Pair: French to English
Field: Other - Business/Commerce (general)

Note: Extra info

I've just realised this snippet is ambiguous; the "on a" is
in the sense of "we get" rather than "we expect". The
following sentence makes this clear "On a un niveau élevé
de rigueur dans l'installation et la qualité. Celui-ci est parmi les plus élevés de nos fournisseurs."

---------------------------------------------------

The problem is, I have nothing whatsoever to do with this question. It's not even my language pair. Any ideas what happened?

Dear Jalapeno May 30, 2006

In my opinion it would be better to send this request to the site programmers, by clicking the 'support' button and choosing 'site staff' afterwards. Of course, we may discuss this here in the forum but it will not help in fixing the bug...

Thanks May 30, 2006

Hi Natalie,

thanks for the tip. I chose not to submit a support ticket for two reasons:

1. My problem is not really an urgent one and I'm sure the site staff have more important matters to attend to.

2. I was under the impression (and still am) that the purpose of a forum entitled "Forums about proz.com > ProZ.com technical support" could only be to provide users with a place where they can post a question when they have a technical problem with proz - which I do.

Are you being notified of all-English questions? May 30, 2006

I was notified of this as an all-English question. But it was obviously French to English, so I changed the language pair. This might have something to do with it. But I did not myself receive the notification you mention.

Hi Jack,

that's just the thing - I don't have *any* notifications activated.
