Board Suggestion Thread

  • November 22-27th 2022, Jessi will be making adjustments to the board to increase user-friendless and upgrade a few options. Do not be alarmed by any server outages, we're just doing some house cleaning and future-proofing. They will be temporary. In the meantime feel free to give any suggestions or requests you have in the User Suggestions area of the board. Thanks for being here! :)

If you have any suggestions for boards to add or ways we can organize existing boards, please post them here.

I have the skeleton down but I know there are things I overlooked or which could be improved. :)

Chinese is no problem. Of course, some nouns may need some explanation, such as "doxxing". The translation of this word does not appear often in Chinese.

How's this? I can make a thread somewhere (let me know where's best) and we can pin it. This is through DeepL with some slight cleanup. I can do Spanish as well. If our other users want to contribute Chinese, French, and others we can include those too.

ETA: I'll keep tweaking this based on admin suggestions for verbiage/best practices/etc. I'm fairly confident in the Japanese and Spanish translations but also welcome feedback/corrections/help with nuance. I'll add Chinese and French tentatively through DeepL in hopes that our members who speak these languages can help make corrections (if they'd like to).

We can figure out a slimmed down version of the rules, too, to cover the highlights, and explain that our preference for English is so we can moderate fairly, if that's what our admins prefer.

English

Japanese/日本語 (via DeepL; I can read this pretty well)

Spanish/Español (via DeepL; I can read this very well)

Chinese (Simplified)/中文简化字 (via DeepL, I cannot read this to confirm; used Wikipedia to add game titles, not sure how to translate "Xenofans"; would @tomxie be able to confirm?)

French/Français (via DeepL; I can mostly read this, but would @Valkyrie be able to confirm?)

Polish/Polski (via DeepL; I can vaguely read it, would @kare_reiko mind confirming?)
Very good, Elen! That's an awesome idea to have more languages for an intro!

@tomxie Thank you! I'll use DeepL to get us started and if you could please help proofread to make sure it's accurate, that would be really helpful!

@jessiray @Aidan Uzuki With your approval, I'll do a condensed version of the rules and remind everyone that the full English version (with all its nuance, examples, and clarifications) still takes precedence at the end of the day.

Tentative draft of abridged rules

I tried to condense/streamline the rules into sentences that wouldn't confuse machine translation, so it'll be consistent across versions. I left the "no illegal activities" section as-is because of how important it is.

@jessiray @Aidan Uzuki Let me know what you think, and then I'll start translating them. Thank you!

It should be ok, at least there is nothing incomprehensible (Witch Hunt, although I can't understand what it is, but I can guess it based on the content)

Thanks for drafting this up! I think it mostly looks good, thought I agree with @tomxie that maybe we can clean up some of the idioms as they might not translate very well.

For example, Witch Hunt could be encompassed in "do not participate in targeted harassment campaigns against members on or off Godsibb.net".

I'll take a closer look at everything on my work break today but thanks for getting this up!!

简单点:”拉帮结派“是我觉得最好的解释(中文来说,这是中文的一个”俗语“)
Keep it simple: "to form a faction" is the best explanation in my opinion (in Chinese, this is a "common saying" in Chinese)
