Has anyone else got repeated wrong language pairs, and missed job offers, in their mailbox? In the last week or so I\'ve received a lot of German and Dutch questions, which masquerade in my box as Eng mono, or Eng-Fr translation..

This probably has to do with accidental mis-postings... Nov 10, 2002

...which were eventually corrected/moved by someone to appear in the proper language group.

I think that there are still some problems to iron out Nov 10, 2002

Good evening Nancy Lynn!


I think that the Kudoz-side of things is still experiencing problems at the moment.


I have asked a Kudoz question earlier today (as you know) and I am *still* unable to add any additional information or comments to it. (I filled out a support request to bring this to their attention).


I don\'t know about your particular problem however, as I don\'t receive any Kudoz questions in my inbox.


I already get over 500-600 emails per day so I just come on the Kudoz board when I have some spare time to see what the latest quesitons are instead.


But I wanted to let you know that you\'re not alone in having problems with Kudoz at the momenticon_eek.gif

This will hopefully be resolved soon icon_smile.gif

Contact you moderator! Nov 10, 2002

The moderators can alter language pairs to be correct.


I think most of us have ceased having KudoZ eMails, instead going to the ProZ.com main page. Thus, our mail boxes are not inundated.


Best regards


Mats

Usually the asker's mistake, I believe.. Nov 10, 2002

It\'s not always easy to handle the two drop-down boxes, for newcomers.

It happened as often before the \"big crash\" as it did since - the difference is that now we don\'t always have the questions as early in our mailboxes so there can be more delay before a correction.


Follow Mat\'s good advice : contact your moderator..

Were you bombarded with mulitple copies this morning? Nov 10, 2002

Good morning!


I just filled out a technical support form.


This morning I downloaded my emails (just now) and I had about 8 copies of one job posting, and *every single one* of the replies posted to forums came in doubled (i.e. Oddie\'s reply came in twice, Mat\'s as well... everyone\'s postings in all the forum I track came in twice)


I never usually have such problems, and I want to see if you are receiving everything twice as well.


Please let me know,

Nathalie


(P.s. Note added: I should point out that the *only* doubling of emails comes from Proz, and did not happen from any of my other email groups etc...)

Everything OK here Nov 10, 2002

I have disabled the automatic notification of KudoZ questions to lighten the load. I still receive up to 200 e-mails per day. I have never received messages for language pairs not declared in my profile. I have recived duplicates but it turned out to be due a recovery procedure of the Bell Canad e-mail server. I did however receive close to ten notifications of a book translation job since yesterday. Job notifications are sometimes slow but it was already the case before the crash.
