1. No matter how many times I click that I want my real name shown, only my user name shows up. Is \"show real name\" a privilege reserved for higher-grade members?

2. A message invites me to enter a term in the glossary. When I click on the link I arrive at the page of suggested answers for that term. Then what? Is there a link I can\'t see?

I don\'t know why this function did not work for you...I have not heard this complaint before. Anyway, I went to your profile and set things so that your real name will be shown. (Note that your username will still appear in some tight areas of the site, for example, in KudoZ leaderboards, etc.)

As for the glossary entry box, that is a problem that needs to be looked at. Thanks for your patience.

I just want to add my name to Dave\'s complaint: I have a string of these abortive invitations to add my term to the glossary. Glad at least to know that I\'m not the only one.

It is now possible to enter terms into the glossary. Oct 3, 2001

SOrry for the long delay in fixing the term entry problem for completed KudoZ questions.

To go back and enter terms from questions you have answered in the past, do this:

- Login

- Click on your name or the \"P\" icon (This takes you to your profile page)

- Click on a kudoz point total (This will show all the terms you have suggested translations for.)

- CLick on the word \"enter\" in the far right column. (This will bring you to a page that allows you to enter a glossary entry.)

Entering terms into the glossary has the following benefits:

- You earn BrowniZ points

- Your name becomes associated with the term, so that when people--maybe clients or collaborators--search the glossary in the future, they find you

- The edited glossary entry becomes a resource for everybody
