@ admins: can we split the themes, please?
When having one forum in (e.q. one language) the info is more accessible
for everyone (who speak English........
yes, who speak English........ and the rest?
in the last four years we have only a hand full new or actualised modules, only for example: modules from Ruud, cwsoft, freesBee, Stefek, Chio, Martin Hecht etc. All this modules are show'n in the english thread and
in the german, but never in the german threads only. All messages for the deveplopers are in english, so i did'nt see your problem's.
if you take a look to the nederlands area, you found a lot of support answers from me there. i work in this country for nearly two years, so i understudd a little. Maybe my answers are in bad english, but it solved the most problems there. okay, sometime i need a google translater, but where is the problem? in all my years here the user language was never a problem for me, why it is now a problem for you?
i try to look to "the other side from the desktop" in the eyes of the user with the problem. not everybody is a developer like you, the most of them have only html basic's and knowing nothing about coding standards & languages. if you read the threads, you see, thats is difficult for many people, to explain the problem in their own and native language, doesnt matter, in which language. And its harder, if you have to explain this in a foreign language. make a self-try and write your next problem in a german thread.
i know, it is no problem to talk with Darkviper etc in english, also with the module coders, so where is the problem? Write your Questions in the english area and you found a english answer there.
I mean, one of the big points for WB was the forum support in all languages
I'm sure, if you close the german area here and now, the most of the german speaker goes to a another system or forum with a german support.
Why not a poll about this? a little explain about the problem / the idea, to use the forum in english only and maybe two questions
- How important is the german area for you?
- Do you see any Problems for you, if we close this area?
i understudd, that its not easy for you (and all of us) to follow some discussions, if you dont talk this language and i see also the problem, that sometimes a problem-solution is "lost" in a foreign language thread, but the german-speakers-area is not the mother of all WB-Problems
The German-only development of WB
a german-only-development? Where do you see something like this? have you ever start a (english) discussion about the developement in the last 3 or 4 years? If yes, was the answer's in english or in the bad german only?
Take a look into the Core, there is no german words in the code comments. the only importent information about the development in german
, was the info, that WB goes to OOP. Okay, Dietmar has a fight with the death in last year and Werner is now Manu, but these are more private informations
