我不是中国人,但是如果这个地方有,我会喜欢和你聊天。

I am not Chinese, but if this place has Chinese speakers, I wouldn't mind talking with them, but i couldn't moderate the forum.

At the moment, then, we have players hoping for Czech, Japanese and Chinese (Mandarin?) sub-forums. Still needing some other players interested.

I'm quite surprised we haven't had any requests for Spanish, Dutch or Swedish, as we seem to have a number of these speakers on site..?

I'd be down for a Georgian subforum

I didn't know Georgian had it's own alphabet. That is a cool-looking language. :ugeek:

I also sorta know Mandarin and a sub-forum for it would be a great way to practice, but again I couldn't moderate...
Sorry...

Also, we might want to have a link here on the main site...

is there supposed to be a "ラ" there? Cuz google translates it as "Do people who are not interested in the Japanese sub-forum?" and with the ラ as What people are not interested in the sub-form in Japanese?. But you seem like you would know. I just like languages and stuff (taken three so far-English, espanol, and Latin.)

The sentence definitely requires one, and only one "ラ". The English and Japanese sentences in my original post mean roughly the same thing, but a more-literal translation of the Japanese would be, "I wonder if there's anyone interested in a Japanese subforum," or, "Isn't there anyone interested in a Japanese subform?"

I have yet to see English-Japanese (or vice-versa) translation software that didn't require a good translator to do a lot of revision of the output to get an intelligible result.

Well I put up some requested sub-forums. If they don't get used I'll close them again, but I thought I'd drop them in anyway for now.
