Is it possible to get all FRENCH sailors to write in ENGLISH so the rest of the world can read all comments ?
Post by iconPost by Swedesailor | 2017-11-19 | 16:48:33

Just saying it is pretty damn anoying to try to follow and read any comments that´s not in the worls language ENGLISH !

Agree ?

Or you could just write in Swedish for that matter and see how many not Swedes that can read :D

So forget the thoughts that France is a super power and whole world can French and write in English.
Capishe ?


This also goes to the forum in the Club House for that matter to.

Google translate actually does a pretty good job, so I don't mind French players using their own language. As a matter of fact 90% of the VR players outside of the VOR are French.

That's from my own stats. Most of the time 90% of the router users are French. During the VOR the international audience increases considerably, but still 50% of the players are French.

You can find the pattern in other places too, like the game raking itself.

Is it worth installing ?

Man, I do agree with you so much, and am sorry for that as a french player (I know french people are not very much loving foreign languages sadly).

Even though 90% of the players around here are FR, well, I personnaly think that we are NOT in the club house here; Cvetan provides a great sharing space, where every countries and languages are meeting, so we should definitely choose all to speak english...

BTW it is "Capisci" not Capishe
just for the sake of defending own language :-)

Well, we could all try Chinese instead ?
Post by iconPost by zezo | 2017-11-20 | 13:53:12
That won't work very well because the "forum" lacks proper unicode support. Even French causes hiccups.

The domain name is Polish, Czesc ;)
Post by iconPost by zezo | 2017-11-21 | 08:34:01
The nick zezo dates back to the 8-bit computer games, somewhere in the late 80's. Entered it in the first game asking my name, later used it in the 90's in the local BBS scene, then as unix login and email address. I registered the domain in 2005 and naturally used it for the site one year later.

My name is properly written Tsvetan, with diminutive tsetso / tzetzo. Many languages lack that sound entirely, maybe in German the Z is similar to the ts/tz. The root of the name is the Slavic word for color/blossom/flower

Edit: Also like the zz in Italian pizza.

Damn, I can't even write my own name in my own language in my own forum. Have to fix that ;-)
Post by iconPost by jpafonso | 2017-12-18 | 12:53:53
Funny. You know my e-mail. Three letters which actually doesn't even conform with the present naming rules of my e-mail domain (which actually is also different from the actual official domain... all legacy address, you see). Bottom line, those three letter were also my chosen login into the BBS scene, and stayed since then (is was easier that time because there was fewer people trying login names). Although my first was a Spectrum, my BBS scene was with a Commodore Amiga 500, so the scene was more 16/32-bit games (not sure what number applies to 68K processor games).

Yeah... The bulgarian fonts are really not working. ;-)

This will probably fail in another way, but no time for that now.

Tsvetan, you how the present Bulgarians, it is necessary to re-invent the Cyrillic alphabet :)

Post by iconPost by zezo | 2017-11-21 | 17:37:00
It was already reinvented few times. Thing is that I wrote this "forum" in one afternoon, and it was designed more like a personal blog with comment section, and has very limited capabilities.
Post by iconPost by haliz | 2017-11-21 | 17:34:36
And then everyone will just have to write in Cyrillic. The site is Bulgarian :)

"Is it possible to get all FRENCH sailors to write in ENGLISH so the rest of the world can read all comments ?"

No.

"So forget the thoughts that France is a super power"

In terms of sailing, there's nothing to be forgotten as it is reality, present, yet, nowadays etc..

If I may excuse myself for an advice, you should better learn French...if you don't want any help.

Otherwise, good luck !
Regards,
JO.

If supermarket chains in other countries also decide to sponsor round the world record attempts the French domination could soon be over.

Do you (all) happen to know any supermarket chain owners?

Maar.... waarom niet? De site die ik hierboven heb genoemd vertaalt het zeer effectief.

Why do you want to read the comments from ALL French's? Or for that matter, from every people of the world? That appears to me an invitation to a serious waste of time, since the majority will be indigestible. We need filters and someone that takes the time to learn how to communicate and be understood on other languages appears to be someone interesting, worth hearing. Sure, you'll loose some interesting commentaries but that will be more than compensated by the time saved not reading the others. Go for me, someone that bought more books than he can read in the rest of his life, there is no time to read all that's excellent... instead of asking all the French's to write English, you should ask English people to stop writing English all the time!
