Hi,

I could not believe my eyes when I saw access link to BB rating information normally available to platinum members when I wrote an agency's name in google.

The agency has an excellent rating anyway.


Is it a bug is the system?

Stay calm,

P.

Blue Board records with high average LWA visible to non-members Aug 8, 2006

Hi Piotr,
First of all, may I ask you to edit your posting by removing the reference to a specific outsourcer, in line with forum rule no. 8. Thank you.

Blue Board records with a high average LWA are visible to non-members, too, as announced by Henry on 27JUN2005.

Guess that clarifies it.

Henry, Enrique: could we please have a corresponding FAQ entry? TIA.

Best regards,
Ralf

It does clarify it :-) Aug 8, 2006

Hello Ralf,

Yes it does, thanks for answering. Edited, no name now.

But did I break the rule really by quoting a BB rating (5) that is possible to find in google and visible to everyone ?

Best regards,

Piotr

Thank you Aug 8, 2006

Hi again, Piotr,

Yes it does, thanks for answering. Edited, no name now.

Thanks indeed.


But did I break the rule really by quoting a BB rating (5) that is possible to find in google and visible to everyone ?

Yes. The rule is not designed to keep the exchange of information on outsourcers off ProZ.com, but the forum is not the place designed to do that. Hence, we keep discussions of specific outsourcers off the forum, regardless of whether they' positive or negative.

Best regards,
Ralf

I understand that BB is a community issue Aug 8, 2006

then why is it publicly visible. Best Brandis well you cannot justify everything.
