Dear Henry,


the first time I used the Agency Ratings service it showed perfectly well. This morning all I get is a white-blue table with all the data, but in the ratings column I only get \"Ratings:3\" or whatever, ossia, the number of voting pros, but not the very AVERAGE SCORE it is given. This makes it useless. Why so? Is this a temporary bug?


Thanks, Flavio

Now, only Platinum members may view Blue Board scores Dec 31, 2001

In the few days that the Blue Board has been online, it has become apparent that the idea of showing average scores without providing access to reviewer\'s information was ill-conceived. People were able to post reviews that were--in effect--anonymous to 95% of the community.


We therefore decided to show such data only to Platinum members. Platinum members have access to the detailed reviews and reviewer profiles, so they are able to evaluate for themselves the reliability of reviews posted.

In other words, you have decided to disenfranchise 95% of us Dec 31, 2001

Thanks!

Simple solution:


You need a pair of platinum glasses...on sale for $125 (or less, with appropriate discount)


A word to the why\'s!

$125 Platinum Glasses? Dec 31, 2001

You can join other lists for free to get information on agencies.


Cheers,

Prosit!


I have already joined free mailing lists about agency ratings. They prove to be quite helpful.


Have a nice year.

TCR is another resource Jan 1, 2002

Yes, there are several existing resources.


TCR, for example, is a free list \"for translators to exchange payment information regarding their clients\":


http://groups.yahoo.com/group/tcr


By comparison, the ProZ.com Blue Board is more structured, but more limiting. (For example, TCR allows open conversation, the Blue Board does not.) The opinion seems to be that the two services are complementary.
