Both Dragos and me have limited time to devote to the site and there is still much more work to be done. English was chosen because frankly it is the lingua franca of our days and I doubt that most of the Romanians using the Internet do not have even elementary knowledge of English. It would be extremely hard and pointless to surf the net without knowing English. Let them make an intelectual effort and use it, as it can't really harm them. There are other non-native English members that don't seem to have a problem, do they? As for the 99% Romanian contribution, I think you are mistaking cipiamon. That would mean that only 5 out of 500 members are foreign, which is not true.

In short, there will be no Romanian language section for this forum.

What would the world have been like if the USSR had not collapsed, and if Russian was still the main language tought in Romanian schools ? DA?
What if Russian, rather then English, would be the primary language spoken in the world - (if Russia won cold war and ruled the world).

This forum would be "po Rusky", we would all be forced to write in Russian, and all Romanian language banned or translated by the admins. :roll:

Der Maresal, I think our customary members have already understand why we use English language on this forum. Don't try to make it appear as we have something against Romanian language, or show your xenophobic feelings. If we were 2000 years ago, we would have used the Latin language. Is this bothering you? <_<

I think you have forgotten (if you ever knew) that in communist states it's illegal to own even an unregistered typing machine, let alone computers hooked to the Web. Free access to the Internet in Communism? You're dreaming, how many people from Cuba or China have you actually discussed online with?! So, had USSR won the Cold War, there would have been no forum, no discussion on whether Antonescu was or not a war criminal (or else the Gulag for you). But we could have always participated in international communist youth's contests and see who has better knowledge of Lenin and Stalin's complete works.

Lots of Chinese have access to the internet, and China is the land where you can get any computer game free to download or on the black market.

They don't care about copy right laws, you can pretty much find anything you want.
So in that regard - they are "free-er" then we are.

cipiamon,

I am glad that this forum exist and that is in english so I am able to learn a lot from the Romanian perspective during World War II even if my english is not that good.

How about a section only in the Romanian language so it will attract more Romanian who don't speak english.

Regards

Yes it's a good idea

It's hard to imagine that regular users of Internet do not speak/understand English.

Means that is unusual to use another language when we can speak in Romanian. I guess , at least 90 % of the users are Romanians . Don't get me wrong , I'm not a member or sympathizer of Mr. W.C. Tudor , but get real who is more interested in Romanian Militaria ??? Answer : Romanians..... :blink:

Arguably, one important achievement of this site (i.e. www.worldwar2.ro) was to make available to foreigners information regarding Romania in WWII, and Romania in general, if we consider all topics.
The foreign readers of this site would not be able to inform themselves about Romania if the text would be in Romanian.

Indeed... :lol: :lol: :lol:

In the recent years (after 2001) China had to sign agreements regarding intellectual property.
Just few days ago, the top leaders of Germany and China met to discuss the German complaint regarding Chinese counterfeit products.
