    Great idea, the more knives and discussions the better. I'd like to see what the rest of the world has. Just no spelling and grammar corrections! It is what it is - love of sharp steel!

    I was all good with this idea right up to this point. Dadgummed Nebraskers, and maybe Tejans too, cannot be allowed to, just willy-nilly, romp about the place!

    What idiosyncratic and confusing use of the english language..., where?

    As far as limiting snarkiness..., well without snarkiness we are just pitnerfest (sp?) with knives and tits.

    Ron,

    There needs to be an additional polling option called "Who gives a shit?"

    I don't feel like I can cast my vote in good conscience without it.

    International

    Sounds like a Great Idea! Although we already have many friends in exotic locations, it would be stimulating for others to have their own section without the fear of a Language Barrier!

    He sure is! :jdwink2::ropeman:

    And for me, while Flemish is my primary language, English is my other primary language, due to the international character of my professional activities.

    I say: let's try it. But actually I think it's not really needed... anyway, no harm in trying!

    Kind regards,

    Jos

    I voted NO - but that's just my individual point of view.
    Anything that has not been of any interest here in the past will also not be of any interest here in the future. My experience in various forums. An international section maybe of interest as long as it's novelty-effect is fresh but after a few weeks it'll be same as before in the other sub-forums (until now). My general "measure" for interest is the amount of replies given to a new thread.

    Nevertheless try it and keep an eye on the development. It's certainly no mistake to offer such a section.

    Jepp, Andy is deep in the subject, I just have to nod in agreement:thumbsup:

    I think you have more success if you tell the alien guys to grow balls and start playing.
    I felt well integrated since I'm here, nothing to change.

    Regards,

    I agree with Jos.

    A forum is international by its nature. And by being international - even if it is a new special international section here on JD - the language is English. Sucks for me and everybody else who is not a native speaker, but nobody can deny the fact that English is the international language, even if you're French ;) And I bet almost every country has its national knife forum already, in Dutch, German, or French, etcetera.

    This is very true.

    I do, however, like to think that our Members here are tolerant enough to appreciate the efforts that they are making to interact with others on JD.



    Definitely. The Language barriers can make the overall growth of it slow, but, with a little Positive Pimping of JD by our International Devils, I think we might be able to show ourselves as an accepting bunch.

    You must admit: For someone in another country with limited English, a quick first-time perusal of some of the Threads here could likely be a traumatic event. It probably resembles a Mine Field.

    :bwah:


    The Commerce issue will rest upon the parties involved and it will be up to both to exercise their diligence in carrying out same.

    As long as the Forum Rules are followed, things will be remain unchanged.

    No party can be forced or coerced into selling to another. The Forum can't be held liable or accountable for problematic transactions, either. Again, the onus is on the User to do their homework.

    It would be a great thing to see our Members who are fluent in other languages stepping up to help when communication gets a little wobbly. Helping out when you can is what makes JD a Community.



    Great Forward Thinking, Boss! This will be a Win-Win for all.
    :thumbsup:

    I've traveled all over, lived in several other countries ... I can tell you that we Americans are the kings of message boards, bbs, etc. Interested parties from other countries often do lurk but not post.

    I'd go for it - just make sure to include translation add ons so we can intermingle with the savages and communicate with them on their forums in their own lingo.

    I believe reaching out and embracing a more global community would be great, if the Membership is open & ready to accept outside perspectives.

    Personally, I'm there. :thumbsup:

    Like the idea

    's a good idea to bring knives and manufacturers that do not appear on websites because they do not produce on a large scale. Here in Brazil there are many knifemakers making fixed blades to the Army and police forces, are great blades with new designs that do not appear on the web because the producer makes few handmade pieces. I think everywhere there must be people like that.

    Language is a barrier, but it is not insurmountable if the interest is mutual ... learn and know more about knives.
