Dear members,

The Fourth ProZ.com Translation Contest is now underway!

These are the last days for entry submission. It would be great to have an additional entry in Russian to enter the competition. Only one more entry is needed for the contest to be on in that pair!

Remember that those language pairs with three to six entries qualify directly. Go solo or pair up with a colleague, dare to translate the French source text and help this language pair make it to the final voting phase: http://www.proz.com/contests

Hope to see you around!

Kind regards,
Florencia

Теперь и non-members Sep 17, 2007

Разрешили голосовать и тем, кто не платит денежку. Авось и участвовать им разрешат - очень хотелось бы.

Luckily Sep 17, 2007

Non-paying proZians (non-members) are also allowed to vote during this 4th translation contest at ProZ. I sincerely hope they will be also allowed to participate in the future.

Я не понимаю, Кирилл, почему Вас это так обрадовало.

Это, во-первых, открывает ШИРОКУЮ дорогу возможным злоупотреблениям.

И, во-вторых, нежелательно менять правила по ходу игры.

I don't understand, Kirill, why you are so happy with the news.

1. This opens a way to abuse
2. Changing rules of a game when a game is on is not a good thing.

Hi again Sep 17, 2007

This thread is English; if you post anything in Russian, it's OK, of course, but please kindly add the same text in English.

How can we abuse the system in a way paying members cannot?..
