Zorro2,

Why do you want them to prevent you? I mean, it has been said so many times before, why still talk French in non French forums?

I mean, keep in mind the mods do not do this to get on your nerves, or to piss people off. We just want the threads to be readable for everyone, and don't want this to become a big pile of incomprehendable multilingo junk!

Is that to hard to grasp?

Hope you understand ... We just the info to be understandable for everyone!

Greetz,
Maarten

In fact I expressed myself in french because two times that someone "eliminated" my post here, I would want to know that has fun itself to do that ?
If this an administrator or a moderating who does that without warning then I won't have fun me more of the all.

Zorro2,

Please don't get mad about this. It might be frustrating, I can understand that. But the fact is that this is a English forum, and it doesn't matter who removed your post. And I can assure you, it hasn't been done for fun. I really don't want to make a big deal out of this, I just want to let you know how I feel about this specific (and very sensitive topic) ...

This forum is visited by people from all over the world ... Greece, Spain, Italy, France, Belgium, The netherlands, The USA, Sweden, Germany ... It would be impossible to use all those languages. Just as MC has expressed, he isn't gonna talk in German.

Now, I know that there are a lot of ST fans out there in France (maybe even the most), but that doesn't change the fact that this is an English board.

Don't you want to let all people know about your opinion? Isn't that the point of a duscussion forum, so we all can join the discussion?

You know, there is already a French section in this forum. (And now I'm gonna start a very sensitive topic, which I might not better do, but I just wanna let you know how I feel) . And personally, I think it is a bit sad. I'm not saying it is bad! I'm saying I find it sad. Why? Very simple ... There is so much great stuff from you guys out there. So many great demo releases. But quite frankly, I don't know a thing about it, for the simple fact that it is always discussed on the French forum, and I just don't bother anymore to read the discussions (My French isn't that good) ...

Now, don't get me wrong ... The french forum will definitely stay, cause I want as much people to enjoy this forum as possible. I just find it frustrating. I'm wondering...Don't you guys want to share all your ideas and work with all the other fans over the world? I never really understood this.

Don't get me wrong ... If it was up to me, this would be a Dutch forum! :) But that is just not realistic!

Anyway, now you might think I hate the French language, and I might be kicked by all French visitors ... This is not the case at all!!
You'll probably also think I deleted your posts ... That's also not the case ... But that doesn't matter!!! I will however delete your French posts, Zorro2, if I stumble upon them ... Without warning :D Not to get on your nerves (that's the last thing I want to do ... Because I think you are a super addition to the scene ... Believe you me!) But because you know that, apart from the MJJ prod section, this is an English forum!

I just want people to be able to understand everybody.

I'll probably get flamed for this...I'm really sorry if I step on peoples toes here, that's not what I want ...

Hope you guys understand!

Greetz,
Maarten

I deleted your posts Zorro. If you don't understand why I did this, please send me a pm so we can discuss it. :)

Cheers

Hadn't seen those topics but it is ok if you post in English followed by French version. :)

If a newcommer on the forums posts in swedish, german, french or something like that I will warn them first but I fully expect the Moderators to know this simple rule by now.

Thanks

Silver
