Hi guys,

I have a suggestion (if it is posible that is)...


Is it posible to make the forum multi-language capable? (And don't say I can be the translator. I have spare time, but not that much spare time to translate every thing. LOL)
Reason I ask is, there are quite a few people on the net (including Portuguese, spanish and "Brasilians" Wink Wink ) that are very much into Sci-fi modeling, but don't speak Enlish.

(And BTW; Add an LOL smiley. LOL)

I can check out what mods they have for the forums. I'm sure there is something out there, although I'm not sure how that would work with people of different nationalities just sticking to their own groups. I knew you would ask about the lol smiley, you can't live without it. I'll see what I can find. Smiley

Unfortunately, there is no translation or language mods for the SM forums. I added some other smileys though.

SM have a beta version of their new forum that might have something like that. PHPBB might also have something but I'll have to ask the development team and see what they say.

I haven't seen too many "auto-translation" tools on the various forums I've visited over the years.  The forums are either all in one language, or the individual posters have to find an on-line translation tool outside of the forums.

We're pretty much at the mercy of Simple Machines in terms of what they've got.   Undecided

Ok, One more suggestion...

In the forum Think Tank, along with the sub forums "Construction, Painting, Weathering, Decals, Finishing, Electronics"... How about adding one more, "References"? For photos, screen caps, books and so on.... to help modelers with their builds.

That's going to start getting pretty messy, and I'd rather not take the bandwidth away from the discussion threads.  There are thousands of references, and we're not trying to become a reference-gathering site.

A viable alternative might be to provide links to sites that have reference materials available.
