Thanks Steffen Nov 25, 2002

The bad rating comes from a serious colleague too...

Thanks Nov 25, 2002

The negative comment by such a reliable colleague kept me well away from this job posting.


Best regards,


Patricia

I suggest you check the FAQ page Nov 26, 2002

Careful with the multiple exclamation marks, particularly when you\'re new to a site. Rest assured that the vast majority of active members are more than happy to help, but TBH the \"I want it all, and I want it free\" attitude bothers me. Remember that the site doesn\'t run by itself, but takes time, work, investment, etc. to do what it does.

Check FAQ #10 www.proz.com/?sp=faq#blue_board_agency on how the Blue Board works, and on the access differentation between Platinum and non-Platinum members.

Check again is my advice - I logged out of the system (so the site would no longer recognise me as a Platinum member), and tried to access the Blue Board. This is what it says right on top of it:


\"Access restricted


As a non-platinum member of ProZ.com, your access to this resource is limited. You may rate and inquire about agencies, and replies to your queries will be available to you. However, to view comments on other agencies, a fee of 50 browniz is charged. (View sample of comment page)


Note: Platinum members have full, unlimited access to Blue Board comments. (Upgrade now >)\"


I hope that clarifies a few things - contact me directly through my ProZ profile if there\'s anything else you need to know.


Ralf
