    I believe I haven't either. Maybe it's due to Katrina not working here anymore (as someone said in another thread).

    Same here - no weekly overview mail since March 30th.
    I remember when Open Data was a thing, before they replaced it with a blog post from 2014.

    I’ve just received the email you are talking about but it doesn’t make sense… for my language pair (English->Spanish) it’s said to have been received 83,155 units. I use RumpelstiltskinRSS and I haven’t seen such amount of units. I’m a PRO translator so I’m supposed to receive any kind of work. Am I right?

    From my experience, it depends on a variety of factors, like your GoCheck score, experience, RSS update intervals (i.e. whether the software is able to retrieve a new job update before it has been taken by someone else), and whether you are a Preferred translator. For instance, I get most of my income from clients that marked me as Preferred.

    It can take a while, but the more you work, the more likely you will get access to more jobs.

    Oh, and I got the weekly overview mail too!

    InmaDG, you're not going to see all the jobs, just a (very) small percentage depending on the time of day, the number of translators who are faster/luckier than you, etc. etc. In my language pair I believe there are at least 40 active translators any day, and the overview says there were a little over 60,000 units. You do the math and figure out how many words might be able to reach my dashboard :-)

    @InmaDG Because RSS has a refresh time of 1 minute, if someone accidentally discovers and starts a task on the dashboard within 1 minute after a task is uploaded, RSS does not trigger a notification. I have experienced this situation several times.
