I myself have NEVER roleplayed before! I have tried
numerous different sites, but they just aren't as welcoming and
active as this place. I loved this place from the start, because
it was so open to equality and because it was where all my friends
were, and they just happened to be Dutch friends...

There's no big deal with simply letting everything be in
both languages, honestly. An English shade can post in English
so that English rp'ers can rp, and then Dutch ones should be
able to reply to a English post in Dutch if they need to, seriously.
Are we all so lazy that we can't copy and paste the foreign language
post into a translator? That's not nearly as much work.

I get where you guys are coming from...but if you're not willing
to adapt to let us feel at home here too, what was the point
of bothering to allow us in, really?


2 active horse RPG's, and yes, that's the truth. The Netherland isn't that big and Roleplaying (text-based) isn't that popular.

I'm definitely not saying that Ali made a mistake in making the site english/dutch. I enjoy talking to all my english/DA friends and look forward to RP with you all. But as I said in my previous posts: There are people here who - just like you - love the site because the storyline and concepts because it's unique - but are not on DA, are not verry fond of english and are afraid to say so because the english people do have a lot of influence.

Yeah, I think both languages would be fine too, but it wouldn't look pretty if they were both showed. Though maybe putting one of the texts in a mini spoiler would be an option? If it would only be a simple sign like an * or ~ or something like that?

Not catering to both languages simply because
it looks bad seems really shallow.

Maybe it would be best if the site was just split
in two, one half for English and one half for Dutch,
and the people who spoke both could use both.
/shrug
I don't know. Segregation seems like what most
people want anyways.

I am fine with anything you guys want
to do in order to show both languages, the
spoiler thing or whatever. :3
I just think if there can be no negotiations then
English rp'ers being here is a waste.

What are you talking about, we are nagotiating right now right? It's just because no one else joins this discussion that we're stuck, really. After all, I only speak for like... 6 people? :'D that's absolutely not enough to get my way. xD

Oh, yeah, we're negotiating! I'm saying that's
good. Very Happy

For now it will stay Dutch, simply because the few against it weigh heavier for me than the ones that are for. I'm very sorry for the foreign people here, but I hope you can navigate through the site anyway.
