Oops! I goofed! Dec 29, 2001

A hasty reply to one of the first questions in the form for adding a new outsourcer, ended up creating an agency called Spain. icon_frown.gif
I\'ve revisited it and tried to find a way to delete it (me being the culprit... ehem, poster) to no avail. As posters can modify the postings, wouldn\'t it be good for the poster to be able to deleting it entirely?

Well done! Dec 29, 2001

I can only agree to what has been said already - building the rating system simply on people\'s willingness to take another job turns a potentially negative discussion into something inherently positive.


Question: I would like to put my own business up for rating - can I do that, or would I need someone who is working with me to submit an entry (hopefully a positive one...)?

Yes, submit it as a request for info.

That is alright, but one member (DeJump) has put up his/her own agency and gave himself/herself 5 points. That\'s abuse! I call on Henry to remove that member.

awarding own points Dec 29, 2001

I\'m not sure if dismissal may be a little harsh, but certainly a reprimand and points removal. Imagine if the translators could award their own points (I\'d have lots and lotsicon_smile.gif. To Ralf: Give me an assigment and I\'ll give you some pointsicon_wink.gif
