I think that when people post in their own language, it is probably only interesting for people who can read and understand it. Am i right?
Webbie, I think you are wrong about this! You have appointed me moderator. How can I moderate if I only read English and something is posted in another language? That is why I send personal emails to anyone who posts in another language to post in both so that I can moderate. So far, everyone has been cooperative with my requests.
But, of course, the main reason is that I am interested in everything that is posted here anyway! So, you see, if I were not moderating, I would want to know what is being said in my community of Fibsboard and Fibs. You may have seen me shout many times while on Fibs to speak English. This is because I am a dummy where languages are concerned and want to know what is being said.
I know enough Spanish and French to perhaps identify a few words and maybe what is being spoken about, but certainly not enough to everything being said.
I have stated on the board somewhere before maybe a couple of times to please, if you want to post in another language, to post a translation also in english. Since Fibs is an english speaking based server, I don't think this request is being unfair. Also, I think that the majority of Fibsters speak English.
