i like to suggest that all the threads be open to everybody,kind of hard to follow a thread when people start posting in a language all to themselves

Hello Bomber,

the general language on the boards ought to be English so all of us can participate in the discussion. In the Foreign / Abroad boards focusing on a certain country I think the coresponding native language would be okay - limited to these boards.

Regards,

Christian

Christian .  Bomber is right .  I think this  , in general  , is an English speaking forum . Nobody should be angry when the spelling is somewhat off . But a complete answer in a foreign language should not be tollerated . If they have something to say in their own language it is not meant for the other members of this forum . Therefor I think they should use the regular E-Mail and not this forum .  Cornelius

not even "just an answer"its whole treads,sorry it just dosen't make sense.where it stop?the internet defines the word"forum" as a discussion board on the internet.how can it be a "discussion"if we don't understand the langauge.if we all started threads that peope could not read or understand what would be the point,i myself know Polish and some German besides American but wouldn't post that way,i enjoy reading about peoples finds and research,how much is information is lost because we just don't understand the langauge.............and bottom line is there is no reason for it cause they do speak english.............funny how when these guys need financeing,equipment,and information they know EXACTLY how to post in english

I tend to agree with Christian. If it is in a country forum, they could use their own language. Rather than struggle putting something into English and maybe losing part of what they are actually meaning. Here is a translation site so you can follow along in the thread. Even reply in their language if you want.  Smiley Sue

Well, you have got a point there. If somebody is capable of speaking English he ought to do it on the forum. We have a translation tool by it does not cover Tagalog so we are completly unaware what they are talking about.

Also I have got the impression that one person used his native tongue to call us names.

Hence to sum up I will remind people to use English and remove foreign language posts.

To make it clear: Nobody here is supposed to have a perfect control of English. It really doesn't matter how many typos a person makes or what gramar he uses. However I see the need that we are able to understand a posting hence the need to write in English.

Best wishes,

Christian
