    So recently, we've had a numerous amount of non-english speakers join the community. Whilst I still believe we should be an english speaking forum/community, I would like to just have a list of people and what languages they speak incase the need for a translator or something pops up.

    Why it would be helpful to have a translator:
    • When someone has a problem and the English is REALLY bad.
    • To help quell arguments (to create a better understanding between those involved)
    • Just help new members feel more comfortable with the new community.

    Yes, we can all use Google translate, but it has its flaws and sometimes can't pick up on the tiny in-formalities of a language.

    Anyways, just leave your name, list of languages you speak (REAL languages please... But Klingon, Dragon, and Elvish are accepted)

    (For me, I'm just an english speaker with a tini-tiny bit of spanish)

    Norwegian.

    Which doesn't exactly make me useful I guess, since I and maybe like one other person around here speak this language. And anyone who speaks it also speaks English well. But hey, why not. >_>

    English and enough Spanish to hold a simple conversation.

    EDIT: thought I'd mention I'd like to learn Japanese, Chinese, and some other European language.

    I can understand French, but I can't speak fluently and my French grammar is bad.

    I was also forced to learn German at school. Not much of it stuck.



    EDIT: I can also sort of speak in morse code. I'm not very fluent in it.

    My native language is German.
    I also understand English (writing and speaking is horrible).
