    I think it's a great idea! I would love to be in the loop with what all the foreign cultures are up to. You know the Swedes, the Japanese, the Italians, the nebraskans, so much new and exiting things to see!:ross:

    Good idea

    The more the merrier I always say. It would be nice to see what's going on bladewise in other parts of the world. It may bring exposure to makers from other countries that we weren't even aware of.

    I voted Yes ...

    ... but I thought it already was "International". We've got Knifemakers on here from all over the World.

    Perhaps this will encourage others to post their efforts. Lord knows, we all love Knife Porn! :devilzeek:yuna:

    I read and post according to subject areas, not geography.

    Unless it's for local info, what shops and local websites are good, show announcements, local laws...that sort of thing.

    1st off , what language is this...?
    just kidding Butch:bwah:



    I already see plenty of international posters here, that don't seem to be intimidated by how things are run here..

    But it's your house Ron, and any way you want to go on this, you know we'll support that decision.
    Since it seems that's what you want to do, I'll vote yes..:thumbsup:

    It just makes the JD that much Mightier than the rest....

    I think it would greatly expand the viewer base and and add some interesting diversity to the group. My only concern would be with the complexities of overseas transactions.

    I have friends all over the place and not just here in the USA. Many of us share the same affection, (or is it affliction?) for our edged tools. Bring on the International presence! :thumbsup:

    I think it's an excellent idea.

    Just a thought, I believe V Bulletin has many translation options we may be able to add to the forum, similar to the spell check option.

    Perhaps this can bridge the language barrier and promote more posting from those who may not be so familiar with the Native tongue.

    If this is an option, I'd be willing to kick in a few sheckles to get it started.

    I see many makers on FB page that are from different parts of the world who post daily, if we could make it a bit more friendly to post here, I think it can open up another dimension to our already great forum.

    Thank you!


    You're making me think. The world is different from another point of view, I agree. And Your aim is to develope the forum. Without developement we are standing still, running on the spot.

    Thinking loud now:

    Encourage sellers to ship international. Or force them. I can imagine no reason many of them do not, except of comfort.
    National pride is a fine and important thing. I am proud Austrian, you can see it in my signo, but a sales thread is the wrong place to celebrate it.

    Do not establish an own "international section", I would feel to be in the midst of a kind of "Ghetto" somewhere outside.
    Americans here - others there.
    The target must be to open the hearts of all users, of the american ones and the others.

    If language skills are a problem, we have members from all around the world: to avoid misunderstandings, it is better to ask a native speaker. If somebody needs help with/in German, count me in.

    You can establish sections for knifemakers. America/Europe/Asia/Africa/Australia/.../
    Each section (from the start) has the same value and standing. Let it grow. Maybe national pride will be a driving force here :manganr:

    I stop here, more ideas maybe later.

    An international forum would be great.
    A different point of view can be a good thing.

    The forum is already international. Placing an international forum within it would segregate the international members from the rest of the forum would it not?:devilzeek
    You yankees are a feisty bunch bunch but all the better for it on JerzeeDevil. We just need to make a bit more effort in welcoming those who don't have English as a first language.
    Have any of you guys tried to engage in a conversation on a non-english speaking knife forum?
    Good! Because there is ONLY one true forum.

    I like your unique input, you are providing different aspects and information!

    I do not mean International sales forums, just makers and posters who feel more comfortable in that regard. I do not think we can force someone to sell Internationally, you may convince them to if you are willing to accept their terms, of course. That would be on a cae-by-case basis and between individuals though.

    JIMBO-

    We would need to download language packs and maintain separate databases (I am fairly certain) and God knows I am not the technical wizard around here! :ropeman: :jdwink2:

    Mainly for folks to feel more comfortable posting their knives, their favoUrite makers' knives etc. One big GROUP HUG :thumbsup:


    :devilcorn:


    Keep the dialogue coming, DEVILS!

    Well, obviously some don't like the idea of an own international section. I understand the point, that it would be some kind of excluding.
    So as I mentioned, just open international threads where they make sense, f. e. in the passaround section, or in my opinion the sales section, because you really can't force people to sell internationally.

    Actually I never saw a problem regarding the different countries and cultures on JD, so I wouldn't mind an individual section, but it MAY be seen as excluding.
