Question, how hard would it be to to add a translation system for the website ?

It's a bit anoying for those not speaking english.

I mean a proprer translation. Ever tried to translate to your own language using this ? Better that noting, but not the best way.

Yes, automated translation fails, but you're not going to get any better translation than that, unless some human is going to actually sit there and translate all the messages.

translating the forums is not possible. But the website itself, that, can be done.

Ah, you mean having the website in multiple languages... yes that would be good if we could get some people to translate it.

Whatever happened to the overseas mods? I mean, like Zam, for example. They could do it. IF they have the time. No, I'm not volunteering someone else. Just suggesting.

Very nice update to the site. How about one translated into D'ni? That would make the linguists happy. By the way, does the "Play" button on the top menu imply the game will be downloaded from this site? Or this that assuming too much?

My guess is that it will link to instructions on how/where to find the client and start playing.

ANd PLEASE remove that offensive message about IE6


The message is factual, not offensive.

It is. While Microsoft still supplies security updates, it is not otherwise it any more. The far bigger problem is that its engine has not been updated in over seven years.

I understand that the reformating might take some work and resources are limited right now, but i will not be forced into the constant turnstile of updating software when something works fine and its successor IE7 is a bloate whale that does NOT work well and good security is provided by good Antivirus protection and other measures.


IE6 is from August 27, 2001; IE7 from October 18, 2006. To call that (over five years) a "constant turnstile of updating software" is ridiculous. Furthermore, your "antivirus protection and other measures" do not constitute surefire protection from security issues in the browser itself, especially when your user account is an administrator (which is the default setting in XP).

You are in no way forced to upgrade; it's only recommended that you do so. All site content is still accessible when using IE; the only problem is that it doesn't quite look good.

Ahh, but IE 6 doesn't work fine. For end users, perhaps; for web developers it is a huge pain to keep supporting an eight-year-old browser whose rendering engine is hopelessly broken.

There's quite a handful of alternative browsers out there that you can use instead of Internet Explorer 7.
