foreign subforums?

from http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?t=25716

the idea to centralize the foreign forums by creating sub-forums is interesting however the disadvantage remains the loss of the resources of the already existing forums. The current solution (http://archlinux.org/moreforums/) seems enough. Why not making a poll ?


We are interested in hearing from our foreign users only please.

Re: foreign subforums?

I voted yes because I'm able to understand german, english and a little french. Why should I search in three different forums if I could find my informations here?

Lets unite the community instead of splitting it up!

edit: wrong statement about the german forum deleted


Dammit, haven't been here in a while. Still rocking Arch. smile

Re: foreign subforums?

Because we still have external forums for foreign languages, it would imho splitting up communities if we create such subforums here. I do not see any problems with the current situation. Of course colaboration between the different forums could be improved and I think they have to link each other. Also a common structure would be nice. But just sayinbg: "Oh, I do not like this; lets start something new" is not the right way here.

@Sigi: If you have any ideas how to improve archlinux.de you are very welcome to join our forums and tell us.

@All: I think we should thought about how we can improve the current situaiton.

Bloody oath, is Australia foreign? Do we get one too? tongue We got nowhere to discuss blues with pacman and cactus installs.

Re: foreign subforums?

I agree with Pierre. IMHO it's not a good idea to have subforums here for languages that already have their own community sites with forums.

Re: foreign subforums?

I tend into the same direction as Pierre. If there is already an established forum, we don't need a new one here.

But a link like bbs.archlinux.org/de or so would be nice, wouldnt it?

Re: foreign subforums?

Voted 'Yes', on the condition that there isn't an existing, and well established outside forum for the relevant language, like with de or fr.
