I recently posted a topic viewable on the top 10 topic list: \"The translation business is the best\". When my topic disappeared from the top 10 topics, somebody called AbacusTrans resubmitted it. The same thing has happened with the topics \"Public bids: food for thought and \"\'call to arms\'\" and \"Show me your rates, and I\'ll tell you what kind of translator you are\", which somebody else than AbacusTrans posted.


So, my question is simply this: \"Who is AbacusTrans\"? Somebody at ProZ.com? And AbacusTrans, when this topic disappears, please resubmit it? Ok...

It happens Dec 2, 2001

hello Mattias,

Nohing to worry. I once posted a topic but after some time it appeared under the name of \'Ditto\'. I do not think Werner Patels has resummitted it under his name.

From his postings, I know he will not indulge in such things.

Probably it is some kind of bug on the site.

It is some kind of computer programme which automaticaly changes the name of the poster, which if it happens in case of job posters can be very harmful to the translators who may lend doing free translation for them.

Matts,

You wrote :

See what? I think some kind of typo mistake.

Glitches, glitches, glitches Dec 2, 2001

This website has had problems for the last few days. I also know that ProZ was working on the forums because of some glitches.


Some of the topics were re-entered, by mistake, under the name of the most recent poster, instead of the original one.


So, sorry, Mattias, but I did not \"steal\" your topic; it\'s still yours (you can have it!).


Mattias, thank you very much for this kind of celebrity-like exposure icon_lol.gif (all you had to do was click on the name and you would have been taken to my profile).


Or maybe we can even turn it into some kind of \"parlour game\": Who is AbacusTrans? Where is AbacusTrans? icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif Now you see me, now you don\'t icon_lol.gif

Is this really Werner? Dec 2, 2001

I wonder it was really Werner who wrote this message above. Somehow it doesn\'t look like he\'s using his own vocabulary... Fake?

Ghost postings Dec 2, 2001

Hi Mathias,


I think Werner really is Werner and exists.


Apart from that I \"think\" (or so it felt when I did it) that I posted a reply to a forum discussion last week but it never ever appeared-not under another name either.


And I don\'t understand how you guys make the smilies nor where you take them from. Really, guys, I\'m mesmerized, and I have seen much in my life.


I hope I remember to enable \"Show Signature\"

No smilies for \"flabbergasted\" and \"discombobulated\" yet?

Maybe you had in mind a different Werner, Mats! The Werner of nuclear physics fame?
