    for something like that to happen, there would have to be a dozen of moderators to recognize different languages or a few people that r familar with various languages. we dont want a bunch of spam in a foreign language [​IMG]

    Imagine KiVan agrees to put up a forum for Spanish speaking people, the next day someone will come and request 1 for French, another one for Japan, another one for German, another one for Greek,...

    One question about the same subject might be repeatedly asked in more than 1 forum
    One can't learn anything new because it's in Spanish/French/German/...

    and... eventually everything will get out of hand [​IMG]

    Are you willing to translate everything so that we English speaking people could all understand ? [​IMG]

    i've tried this before, and foreign language forums just don't workout (right d2?). there arn't enough people to post in them, and they could be doing something that's not proper on the board, and people would n't understand. it ends up being useless.

    Pfft why bother, everyone knows English is the universal lauguage . Just jokin fellas, its a decent idea but I think it could become unnecessarily complicated. I picture someone requesting a forum for every possible language out there, when there are already tons of GBA rom forums in multi languages (I know only english and it seems like half the sites I run into I cant understand a word lol).

    But good luck to anyone who tries, I however wouldnt want to undertake that
