In future, all posts only in Spanish (or any other language) will be deleted unless a translation is provided.

Question

Captain Stable,

We've had a discussion and vote of this matter in the recent past. However, only one question remains in my mind. Does this include quoting articles from Latin American newspapers?

Preferable would be to provide a translation of the article for those who don't speak Spanish, of whom there are many in the region as well as those in the rest of the world but an interest in the region. If not a full translation, then at least a precis should be provided.

If the article is online, then I would prefer a link to it rather than quoting the whole article verbatim, which takes up server space, download time and bandwidth. Furthermore, online translators are available for those whose Spanish is as limited as mine!

Captain Stable,
Couldn't agree more! Could we have a similar ruling for Nordic Forum as well. There is a lot of Danish/Norwegian/Swedish/Finnish language postings and most are impossible to follow for the large number of interested visitors.

For a ruling on the Nordic Forum you'll have to deal with that Forum's Mods. Sorry!

BA - local languages are fine where we have a moderator fluent in the local language or languages.

This applies to the Nordic forum where our coverage is only missing Finnish - the guys understand that and are happy to work with it as it prompted them to get their own one running.

Capt. Stable,

Send me a PM letting me know what is involved, and I'll let you know if I feel I have the maturity to be up to the job.

D140, the rules have been made clear, so stop trying to keep forcing us to amend your posts. There is nothing to stop Spanish language posts being made in the Spanish Forum which has a Spanish speaking Moderator.

Thumbs down Capt. Stable

If you don't speak or understand the romantic language of love.... then, do not even try to moderate this forum! and go somewhere else! thus, diversity makes the difference! or learn the language!

Actually the edited post above was by me ... and I did understand what the poster was saying (thanks to a little knowledge and Babelfish) but that's not the point.

The rules are that Forums will converse in English, unless otherwise arranged and then only for Forums where there is a suitable native speaking Moderator. This is PPRuNe policy, take it or leave it.

If you don't want this Forum moderated or for it to continue in English, then the answer is an easy one, we can close it. But that would be a little bit of a knee jerk reaction.

Remember this jet4hire, you don't pay for the site and you don't take the legal responsibilities for anything that is said on it. If you did, then you could make the decisions on what is acceptable and what is not. The other option is to open your own site and have it in any language you want.

Whether you like it or not, I am the moderator of this forum. By popular consent, the language of this forum is Enlgish.

As for learning the language, I speak English, French, Italian, some Dutch, Russian, Arabic and Swahili.

What languages do you speak?

I am afraid that Jet4hire is only fluent in "language of love".

Such great capability may take one for great adventures in places like San Francisco....

Have Fun!

D140, you are banned from making postings to this thread. The reasons will be obvious to all. Please do not encourage me to ban you from this forum.

StandAlone, the reasons for the language of this forum being English is not simply so that I can understand it. We DO have moderators who can read Spanish. Unfortunately, they are busy with other forums and moderating takes a lot of work. In general, the Spanish speakers here can, in general, read and understand English. Many English speakers cannot read and understand Spanish. Therefore, English offers the opportunity for the largest number of PPRuNers to understand and contribute to this forum.
