Forum Promotion for non English forums

Post by MarkoNinic1994 on December 17th 2012, 8:24 pm

Hey guys i have circled all over this forum and you have everything except one thing,
in the Forum Promotion section there is promotion only for forums in English language and there are many users that have non English forums like me,in the support language forum are only worlds most known languages like French,Italian and so on...

I would like from Forumotion Staff to make subforum,forum or what ever they want for Promotion of Non English forums,i think that is needed because there are many users that would like to have this Forum Support for forums

I voted no. I have a few reasons for this.

Each forum needs to be looked at carefully before they are accepted in the forum promotion section. If it is in a different language then the moderator may not be able to understand what's on there.

Secondly, this is an English forum. It would not make much sense to have a presentations and reviews in different languages. This is what the other support forums are for. Smile

For the review section, I'm going no for this suggestion, it's a little bit hard to comprehend with the forum contents even with translators since not all gives a good translation of language.

ok i am loosing big time,this was an idea as i spoke with Base about that,this doesen't brakes any rules of this forum...I am not backing off from this if we don't get just a tiny space to promote here our forums maybe we will get another support forum on our language that will run staff from forumotion...

Like a second RicYiu please where do you get population from,i get it you could optimize your SEO for people from Romania like i did for Serbia,but please don't tell me you don't use any traffic exchange sites??? if you use some traffic exchange sites on English isn't that the same if you use and i am pretty sure you do,what's the point then to apply your Romanian forum on English traffic sites...

Your poll has multiple choices, can I choose yes and no in the same time? Neutral

The only reason for the advertising is to gain more active users. This mean the readers of an advertising post must be able to read the promo and after that - to read your forum and find it interesting. It's useless to promote a forum in a place where no one speaks your language.

You can gain members in several other ways, like partnership with other forums or blogs. You could as well create a promo forum for the forums in your language.

Hello.

Voted no, sorry.

In addition to all the things that have been told, I would say that any of the Forumotion`s support forums let promotion of forum wich are not in the propper forum language, so I think Forumotion shouldn´t allow it.

Besides of this, Moderators must undestand what is written on the post, so if they doesn´t speak spanish they will not can see if the section is legal or not, and they are not going to take a look to an english-spanish dictionary, because this would be act as a translator, and remember that Moderators are Moderators, not translators.

Agreed,

I have looked at a few forums when helping in the support section and just thinking how hard it would be to complete a review on that forum. Its hard enough providing support when viewing a forum in non English so imagine trying to provide a review.

Add +1 I would agree with your statement Jophy. However I can see why the original poster of this suggestion would favour forum promotion over reviews.

Back to the original question at hand, I have to agree with everyone here's general consensus. Forums need to be carefully looked over to see if they (A) Are appropriate and (B) Comply with the forumotion TOS and having a foreign language forum would would be hard to look over and not all translators can accurately translate the wording.

I voted no to this suggestion.

great question, my french-english forum was rejected.
Yet it was created via FM (english) tools.

A dilemma, if only FM promotes forums. The french support forum totally forbids this.
I don't know what is the case on the Romanian support forum...

but I agree with staff and other participants to the poll... how can the moderators check contents of sites in a different language, if at least there isn't a member within the staff (FM) who understands the language...

As much as I'd hope such an option be open for all forums, we have to be logical here MarkoNinic1994! Wink
