When we started the foreign language threads the intention of them was to give new members who are not fluent in English a place to ask questions about CardsChat, events, rules etc in their native language.
At that time we had at least 1 long term member who was going to be responsible for assisting those members and reporting poor quality posting and posts that need attention to the moderators.
Here is what we are finding:
- Members are doing a lot of their posting in these threads long after they initially joined instead of venturing out into the General Forums and learning to communicate in English.
- They are having all kinds of discussions in these threads that don't belong there.
- Nobody is reporting poor quality posting or posts that need the attention of the moderators - this is a HUGE issue.
- Moderators are being forced to use translators if they want to know what is being said in these forums - they do not have time for this and shouldn't have to do it.
At the end of the day this is an English only forum. We have been considerate enough to provide you with a thread in your native language to help you get used to the forum.
You have 30 days to start using it properly - otherwise we will close it. We can not have un-moderated threads in the forum. If we do not get reports on poor quality posts, posts where the forum and mods are being dis-respected, etc this thread will be closed.
If this thread is not limited to assisting new members and answering questions about the forum it will be closed.
If you have any questions feel free to send me or a moderator a private message in English or post your question in this thread in English.
