New Domoticaforum in progress

Postby phoenixb » Mon Dec 07, 2009 4:39 pm

If I may give my input on the language so I would like to keep it or to made a forum for HS and for over all other question in Dutch.
Because I think more of the users are Dutch (I think sorry if Im wrong ;-) )

Otherwise is it possible to made a translator plug-in like google for translate from Dutch to Enlish because Im using this now for response it ;-)

For the new forum software nice draft.

Looks very nice.

I prefer English for almost all but any case NOT for Homeseer. This is specific for Dutch users that have problems to describe HS problems or ask their questions in English.
For people that prefer English they can use the Homeseer forum: board.homeseer.com It is also not useful to duplicate an English forum.

I prefer English for all <b>possible </b> topics because that way people from all over the world can contribute, which is better for everybody.

Just place all "dutch" forums seperate, down at the bottom. That way english people always see the "normal" part first.

Looks good!

I'd prefer English, except for Homeseer general. It think the Homeseer board is a nice platform for international topics on Homeseer and not all the Dutch people are that literate in English. Although sections for plugins should be in English because the Homeseer board does not offer any room for those.

Oh well... either way would be fine.

i'll go for english. perhaps an exeption for hs because you could always go to board.homeseer.com
Makes it easy when searching for something. now you have to search wtice, one in english and one in dutch

So.. Should we start using it now, or wait for you to finish importing the old Snitz DB?

"I know the eye wants something too" (het oog wil ook wat ;-) but the information is the most important to me.
English is fine for me (less confusing) and as long as "Domotica and Dineren" dutch language will be allowed.
Will there also be a domoticaforum.eu/mobile?

mmm, you are missing something i guess. Check the member area. There are only few non-NL members. How much traffic do you get from outside NL? I'm not against English but looking closely and the active users are mostly NL, so why doing so much effort when not many non-NL users going to this website. Otherwise make more effort in getting this site on top for non-NL users. The target is Worldwide, but the stats are telling me something else.

the first 6 member pages are foreign, and if we go to dutch we totally shut them out.
I think its good to keep HS in dutch or english, member can choose, chak has his dutch workshops there as well and a lot off effort is done in these topic. So good to honor that.
Same goes for "For Sale"
All other will be English again.
I have now the ability to create subgroups and closed groups (domoticaclub) and make it more clear.
Tonigh I fixed again some issues with smilies and included images, so getting along good.
More later and keep the input coming :-)
Thanks.Pieter

ps: Googlebot settings are working good, google is already busy on the new site :-)

Hi Pieter,

Looks very cool, but seems a bit slower. Guess you have to do some more tweaking.
