Dear ProZ Staff:


I remember a while back it was possible for Platinum members to make changes regarding KudoZ questions (i.e. move a question from easy to pro or vice versa; edit glossary entries if the wrong answer got hastily accepted, enter term in the glossary if the asker has not done so, etc.)

Now, the only option I see is to \"Save\" (I\'m not even sure what - the question? the selected answer? the glossary entry?)


I would appreciate your clarification.

It is KudoZ point totals that matter. Jul 31, 2002

The edit options for questions and glosarry entries are available if you have certain number of KudoZ points, I think thresholds are 100 and 500. If you have 500 you can squash questions, change between easy and pro, etc.


However the Save option is also a mistery to me. icon_confused.gif

Cheers,

Magda

Magda: thank you. Mr. X: ??? Aug 1, 2002

Thanks Magda, your response rings a bell (about number of brownies&KudoZ)


Whoever changed the subject line of my message, however, must have the most interesting personality! The fact that s/he has authorization to change subject lines in this forum indicates that s/he\'s close to the pot - yet s/he doesn\'t have the decency to come in public and actually answer our questions. Most fascinating!

changes in the subject line Aug 1, 2002

Someone also changed the subject line of my topic that I posted last night - actually now it better expresses the content. It would be still interesting to know who has the authority AND time to read through all new posts and clarify their titles according to their content.

It's the ProZ staff (or maybe the moderators) Aug 1, 2002

I have read somewhere, but I don\'t know where, that titles are changed so that they are more expressive, since they appear on the main page of ProZ. In case non-ProZ are visiting the site for the first time, the posting titles are also part of the image of ProZ, so the staff has the right to change the title of postings.

...the role of moderators is described there. Nothing sinister whatsoever - it\'s just that reference lines aren\'t always as clear as they should be.

That would be us, the ProZ.com staff. Because titles appear on the front page, it is important that there be some editing (like headlines in a newspaper). In this way, member surfing time is saved and threads stay on topic better.


The fact that we rewrite subject lines is noted in the posting form. Also, this is from the FAQs:

-----------

Q: Why did my subject line change?


A: Because subjects lines appear on the ProZ.com front page, it is important that they be as descriptive as possible of the content of your posting. Instead of saying \"subtitling\", you should say \"Where can I find training for subtitling?\"


If your subject line is not descriptive, it may be rewritten by ProZ.com staff.

Save Aug 1, 2002

I think save is a way of tracking a question, and I think it automatically gets put in your own glossary if you save it, but I\'m not entirely sure. Can anyone confirm?

P.S. No, \"save\" or \"track\" didn\'t save it to my glossary, but that\'s OK.
