May I ask you why do you want to do this? Aug 29, 2007

You are using your profile for asking, but you have no valid email address so you do not get any notifications and you cannot be contacted. Maybe you would better edit the data in your profile?

I think ProZ.com is one of the best things I have ever been a part of, and it has certainly helped me get more work, and I have made a lot of new friends.

I hope you will change your mind, and not leave us. Give us a little more information about yourself and we will enjoy having a new active member. You will undoubtedly be of value to your language pair by being able to answer KudoZ questions, as well as asking them. You can quite likely make some very good contributions to our forums, and offer support for the questions others provide for their fellow translators.

Welcome....

Bill

Why not just answer the question? Aug 29, 2007

Somes times when people ask a very simple question, people fail to answer and try to convince the asker to do what the answerer think they should do. Honestly, I think that is a lack of respect.

If this person wants to delete his/her profile, and has good reason to do so, why not just help the person instead of convincing him/her not to? Why not just respect this persons wish? Why do people have to justify such a choice?

There can be many reasons... Aug 29, 2007

I, for instance, can mention at least five. However, I do not think a person with more than 300 asked questions and precisely zero answers would be a loss for the community. Hmm.

Indeed, why not just answer? Aug 30, 2007

This seems to be an increasing problem with online services. I used to subscribe to one of the fax-via-email services, and had the darnest time getting them to cancel my account. The sales rep wasted a solid ten minutes of my time trying to convince me to stay with the service. I finally threatened to refer the matter to my credit card company, and that did the trick. I've had similar problems with ISPs, web portals, etc.

You are being offered this and that for a minimum of ten minutes and don't even have a chance to answer anything, or they make you answer what they need to hear. :-[

Let's let people do what they think they should do as long as they don't harm anyone.

I don't know the answer to the question and besides it wasn't the point with my post.

Giving the asker all the choices Aug 30, 2007

Steven Capsuto wrote:

Sometimes the asker does not know all the option that are in store for him. (For example, they want to remove a profile because they have forgotten their password and can no longer access it..., or maybe they want to edit their profile and do not know how to do it, so they would rather create a new one.) That is why they are given/told all the options and then they are free to choose. Even in this case, the asker (Sonyynos020) changed his mind, after knowing his options.


Cheers,

Monika

It's often funny how sometimes we can all get "suspicious" about a reply or an answer (not only in a forum, but also, for example, in customer assistance hotlines or Help Desks), when in fact, like you wisely said, there may be numerous options to be taken into account when interpreting things. Of course, companies will always try to "retain" customers, but dealing with customers' complaints or questions is definitely not an easy job.

Best,

Ivette
