1. Why could I post now? WTF? If I'm being moderated, then why can I see this?

2. The error message said nothing about moderation. I got another message, which said something unrelated. WTF?

Don't know, but I assume that the Admin has set this Forum so that a users first few posts are moderated to prevent spam etc.

Again I Don't know, but I believe the default is 5 posts.

Well, as my user preferences are set to en, I thought the system would use that when sending me email. Instead, it used the preferences of the user that posted a response. In addition, the date was in English instead of the foreign language. Odd. My forum will definitely be multi-language including Chinese characters.

I won't mind getting a message with some Chinese text in it. It kind of makes it interesting.
However, I do believe that some unstuck Englishmen might not like it. So, who cares? Let them write a patch for it.

I certainly appreciate the value of having contributors and participants that represent a wide variety of people groups and ethnicities, and I realize this require language support to be broad. It's that kind of code development effort that makes this the best forum software solution I've found! Nevertheless, we need to consider the aversion to risk that is generally required in society today, which might preclude someone from opening a link (or an e-mail) that is in a language other than their own. I'll admit here, as I have elsewhere, that I'm an engineer and not a coder, so I have no idea what degree of difficulty it would entail to make this change. Nevertheless, I'll suggest it and let you who are smarter than I address it...

It seems to me that an e-mail alert sent to me, as a subscriber to a forum, would be delivered to me in the language that I indicated was my own in my profile preferences. For me, if it weren't obvious, that's English. However, when replies are posted to my submissions from users with other language preferences, my e-mail alert appears to come formatted in the language of the responder. Now, I'm not speaking about the content of their post -- the forum obviously isn't responsible for translating the posts themselves. I'm referring to the structure and formatting of the e-mail alert. For example, naudefj responded to one today, and the e-mail included "Onderwerp," "Van," and "Datum" instead of subject, from and date.

As a participant, I would hope that e-mails sent to me from the system would all be structured at least in a language I'm familiar with. (Fortunately, in this case with naudefj, I've done quite a bit of missionary work in South Africa.) Razz

Hah, I'm starting to really enjoy this discussion Smile

PS: It's probably not that difficult to fix. However, please don't look at me.

True that can be disconcerting at times, but alas it is not an issue that has been resolved yet!

Suffice it to say that all the languages are in the same place despite the users selected language when you are familiar with them it's quite easy to recognize them for what they are.

In most forums the users will use the same language so this should not be an issue normally, and there have been discussions about making automatic language conversions both in the selected language and translating the posts themselves.

For the most part though this is not a major problem, you will see it here more often than elsewhere because of the vast number of users from different countries.... Just look at the "Show what people are doing" some times and you will see.
