Re: International support

Only the ones from here, I would guess. Seems like you would have to ask them everytime to change something.

Re: International support

If the admin is a FluxBB.org developer, how will he/she able to read any language of xx.fluxbb.org/forums/? Or will xx.fluxbb.org/forums/ be only in English?

Re: International support

It will be in the xx language, but the moderators will have to keep in touch with them.

I don't like that solution very much, but that's how I believe it is supposed to be.

Re: International support

There will be international moderators, the only admins will be the same as the admins of this forum.

If you think you have a better solution then say, thats why I made this topic.

Re: International support

Who will make the board name, description, categories and forums of those languages? Some western people cannot see East Asian languages because their operating system cannot support those languages. I wonder if all admins' operating system can support East Asian languages.

Re: International support

The moderators will be able to tell the admins how it should be setup, and request changes if required.

Re: International support

Well I speak Spanish as well, so hopefully once I get a better grasp of how this forum system works I might be able to help.

Will you all admins be able to install East Asian languages? If you won't, texts will lose after sending you them.

Re: International support

I'm sure they will install language packs that are needed for a specific forum.

Re: International support

Actually all of the forums will share the same set of language packs, as well as the same set of users.

Not really, sites like that don't share users.

Re: International support

So what we should do is to wait for Beta 3.

Re: International support

I doubt we'll have international forums till 1.3 is out, we don't want to have to keep updating them, we'll see though.

Re: International support

Hm, so, what do we waiting for? Let's admins create international vhosts. I'm waiting for translate polish texts :-).

I have one more sugestion. For relax website traffic, internationalized vhost can be hosted on country servers. So for example, I have my own very fast server in Poland. I have on it my family website, and there is few gigs free for pl.fluxbb.org.
I think this solution decrease cost of future maintance.

Re: International support

Hello,

I never understood why the "international" communities have not been contacted on this subject...
Perhaps that communities themselves had a more informed opinion.

We exist (for a long time) and will continue to exist.
The french support (i.e.) will still be on fluxbb.fr / punbb.fr
(NOT on fluxbb.org/french or whatever).
For 1.4, or future 2.0.

You may try to "re-create" a new community if u want, i doubt it will be successful.
Moreover, it's stupid to split support (and contributions) between 2 sites.

Re: International support

Don't worry Mpok, this thread was just to discuss ideas and see what people think, it wasn't a "this will be happening" (although a couple of the posts maybe sounded that way).

I think in the end we will probably end up not hosting the international support forums here, it would be a fair bit of extra work for us, and as you show I imagine the users of the existing international support boards wouldn't like being told to give up their own site. We are currently working on a new homepage, which will be translated into various different languages, with the aim of taking it live when we release 1.4RC (ie. soonish), ideally I would like to decide on and implement a solution for the international support by then too.

The problem with simply linking to the existing communities is that we have no control over them, which can reflect badly on us if they get infected or run out-of-date software etc.
