Hey Klaus,

Just checked out the old site to find a message you left about the new forum and the language options that both me & fred have now raised.

I quote : "It probably will take some to time to get used to the new forum,but I am sure,you will like the new features.
If your native language isnt English,you might appreciate the option to choose between English,French,Finnish & German"

Surely this message means that if you view the site in French or German that all English messages will be translated so you can read them. And if your English the same in reverse will happen  :?:  :?:
If not,then you have your first main bug on the site. 8O
I know what we have now is pretty good as an upgrade of the old forum but some people are going to be confused  :cry: by this.

Maybe a clear explantion posted on the site will help.

Just a suggestion    PK   8)

You are right I should make it clear.
For me it was obvious, that this forum can't do miracles.
And doing a translation which is right, is a miracle with the
technology available at the moment.
I am involved on a daily basis with software and stuff, so I took it for granted.

I just was talking about the interface of the board, not the content. :!:

I would say, it isn't a bug in the forum.
It's a bug in my English.
