The division between Chinese sub-forums wouldn't be mandarin/cantonese/whatever else. The written language is divided between traditional and simplified. I can read maybe 20 words of simp and not one of trad.

The only trad. characters I know are the ones that weren't simplified to become simplified :D :D :D

Any possibility for a Serbian sub-forum?

Other than me, there are at least eight other players from Serbia (the people I play with, all friends and acquaintances):

Tetka Drol
mrakeee
shakal
olinado
george1983
SJS
Defke
little.napoleon

I already spoke to some of them and they were up for it. If needed, they will confirm their support for the Serbian forum. We would like to use this thread to meet other Serbs on this website, as well as people from neighboring countries with mutually understandable languages (Bosnia, Montenegro, Croatia). I would be glad to be the moderator, because I enjoy abusing power :D :D :D

(Besides, we Serbs own a Supply Center, so you better be good to us :mrgreen: )

Rick - I'd happily help with a page for Turkish speakers. Not so sure if there are any other players who speak it, but it's a major world language spoken in many countries, so there's a decent chance.

I support the idea for the Serbian subforum. Apart from the players already mentioned, I saw several other games with some Serbian conversation in the shoutbox.

Of course, i disapprove of any delegation of any sort of power to dovlinhos, cause he is a well-known backstabber and a proven dealbreaker. :mrgreen:

I'd like to see if there are any Polish players.

I'm part Polish, but the last of my Polish ancestors immigrated in 1914 (and couldn't return because of WWI breaking out...)
