It seems to me that the majority of topics here are in Dutch.
I know, most Dutch speak fluent English, so they don't really need a Dutch section.
What do you think? Should I create a Dutch subforum?
If the answer is yes, I'll need one or more local mods.

If you need another mod, i would like to apply, just for this forum.
Seems kind of dead, also stated in the welcome section of that forum. Most of us speak English/German, or at least, we understand it. Personally i think this section is not needed.

I know, replying to an old post...

Sorry, I just read your post.
OK, I'll make you a local mod, possibly tomorrow (it is now 1:35 AM CET).

Can we get a Frisian language sub forum, or are you gonna lump us in with the Dutch like you people always do?

Oh wait! I'm also a native speaker of "Limburgs", but my Frisian surname might suggest roots elsewhere ;-)

:lol: by the same token we should start a Welsh and an Irish forum.

Irish language is actually the majority language now in Ireland.

Irish will be the second language to be successfully revived (the other is Hebrew).

I am sure one day the Anglish folk will purify English and remove its foreign borrowings.

Anyways, I am pretty damn wasted right now, so I shall get to the point: it is best to never make assumptions that language families can always overlap. Frisian and Dutch are two different languages. Welsh and Irish are completely different languages.

Like Portuguese and Spanish: they both sound the same, they both look a lot a like, but if you ever called a Spaniard a "Portuguese" you are probably gonna get your {censored} handed to you.
