More native speaking staff members to support FM.

Post by Guest on February 16th 2014, 7:52 pm

Hi,

Because of my background I want to suggest more native speaking (or bi-langual) staff members to be added on here to support FM. I know Chinese isn't the one to go on, but I like to see German, Dutch, French, Spanish a bit more to go on. Thank you!

Sammy.

This is the English support forum, so everything is in English.

There are other support forums - http://help.forumotion.com/t2079-official-support-forums .

Thank you, SLGray! I knew a few only. Is there any chance on having a Dutch support forum anywhere soon? I'd really like to see one! It'd be a great help to me and many more!

I really can not tell you if a Dutch support forum will be created. The only way an official Dutch support forum will be created would be if an employee of Forumotion can understand French and Dutch.

For a support forum, you would have to understand French and the language of the support forum.

So, English and Dutch would do, right? Thanks! Smile

PS: I don't speak French except for the words Bonjour, Tour Eiffel etc.

If you are asking about the English support forum, then you will only be using English, not Dutch.

I want to be able to use Dutch as a FM language on here, that's why. Serving Belgium, The Netherlands, western parts of Germany and some Luxembourg areas.

I will have to ask, because I am not sure that is an official support forum.

Well, when you open creation page for Dutch forums http://www.actieforum.com/ it gives the link for http://ondersteun.actieforum.com
So it's the official one.

That is not an official Forumotion support forum, either. As explained above, there needs to be a Dutch employee at the Forumotion offices who is able to speak to French (and perhaps English) in order for an official Dutch forum to be set up.

I'm sure every FM member and staff are doing their best to keep all alive. Thank you!

EDIT: (we posted atst)... I'm willing to take the chance to be a real Dutch FM staff member (not French, but English speaking as well). It''d greatly improve my knowledge and be the way I wanna be: HELPFUL! TY! Smile

Well, I think it's official one (maybe because of some former staff employees which are retired now). Because if this wasn't official one then http://actieforum.com/ wouldn't redirect to http://ondersteun.actieforum.com instead it would redirect to http://help.forumotion.com

I have asked in the staff area, we will have to wait until Buttercup replies if it is official or not.

Also for Samantha's suggestion, yes, there are more official forums for other languages too (which are not listed here because it was removed around 2010 from help.forumotion.com list) However you can find history post from http://web.archive.org
Romanian http://help.forumgratuit.ro/forum
Italian http://aiuto.forumattivo.com/forum
German http://hilfe.forumieren.com/forum
Turkish http://destek.yetkin-forum.com/forum

There are quite a number of foreign languages new to us. Romanian for instance, they're booming on here and I just know they can not express themselves the way they want to! FM Staff, please think about getting it all back! You need it!

PS: Nice board you got there, CoolYou! I don't know much bout punBB, but you sure are helping peeps out there (Shadow?)! Just another suggestion, trying to be helpful: change the verb http://ondersteun.actieforum.com into the noun http://ondersteuning.actieforum.com

Well, Samantha if you're pointing at me for changing these verbs i can't because im not staff member on these support forums, just linked you to see that these forums actually exist.

And yeah, I'm a Shadow on PunBB Design and thanks for the nice words.

Don't you worry. I'm not. I'm merely suggesting the right stuff. "Ondersteun" does not exist in Dutch, unless you'd say "Ik ondersteun", "I support". The Dutch language is a lot more difficult than some may figure... It's one of the hardest to learn. I can tell. And that's where it crossed my English lately. It sometimes confuses my tongue... Feels like being split right in the middle atm Sad I'm sorry!

Regards, Sammy.

PS: R U Shadow on Avacweb as well?

It's quite good but there's also a negative part of it, Yeah it would be good if there will be many languages on a support forum of forumotion. Although like Base said, there must be 1 representative that needs to know how to speak french and able to work at the Forumotion Office in France. I'll be voting a No for this since i think this english support forum is enought to cover some languages and also English is a global and common languange in the world.

Hello,

I would like to make this clear. As already said by Base and SlGray, support forums will only be created and be official when there's an employee at Forumactif that's able to speak Dutch and French. The Dutch support forum was official when they had a pro administrator, but since the employee left, it became unofficial, it will only be official again when there's a newly hired pro admin that will be in charge of the Dutch support forum, unfortunately, at this time, we don't have any.

If there are new support forums that will be created, they will be announced by the administrators. Wink

Thank you for your suggestions but unfortunately, it's not in our hands to create a support forum.

I will now lock this thread since this has been answered.

(If you have any more questions about this, feel free to PM any of the staff members.)

Thank you for understanding.

=> Locked
