- is that ok?

personally I think it should not be possible for agencies to rate themselves - but anyway it is obvious to anyone else looking through the reviews ...

Whenever you notice something like this, you should notify ProZ.com staff immediately.

thank you Evert,



I just wrote a notice



By the way - they didn\'t bother to give themself a \"5\" - they rated themselves with \"4\" - funny way of marketing oneself

I don't know... Oct 11, 2002

...what are ProZ.com\'s allowances to agencies, but I think, if this is a translators\' site, rating should be done by translators only... By the way, an agency that \"rates\" itself seem rather \"fishy\" to me...

It is not acceptable Oct 11, 2002

ProZ.com does not allow Agencies to rank themselves. Unfortunately from time to time our system is tested and some individuals manage to Rank themselves. All reports of Blue Board abuse are investigated and treated seriously.
