I posted a job yesterday and requested quotes through proz.com.
Now, in the list of my jobs, there are 40 quotes displayed, when I open the quotes, there are only 39 of them. I have reloaded the page several times.

But that is not the biggest problem.
I wanted to reply to some quotes by selecting "No, thanks", a comment box appeared, I filled it in and pressed Submit.
But the list of quotes has not changed at all.
The quotes are still "valid".

Furthermore, there are "boilerplate responses". I have added one, but it is there for 20+ times and cannot be deleted.

How to deal with the quotes now? Thanks a lot for your replies.

Last time I tried this way, the message were only sent once I sent an answer to all of them at once ( accepted / not accepted).

It didn't work for individual answers.

A bug I think since it seems quite new.

I was not able to send any response at all Jul 4, 2006

Since the box for writing an essay in has been added, it is not possible to send a response of any kind to anybody, not even to the person chosen for the job. That apart, in the case of 15 quotes I do not have time to write 14 essays explaining why I did not accept that particular quote. The answer is simple: I can only pay for the job once, and not 15 times over. I would like, however, to be able to click "No, thank you", as previously.

Astrid
