What’s the status on this?
I can not speak for LibO guys but in the time frame of about 2 month i am asking and answering something here I saw not only english questions (spanish, not recognized). Nobody throw them out and they were answered. So just try to ask your question in deutsch somebody will answer or you get a reacti
@horst: Thanks for the feedback. Feels kind of messy to mix languages …
@erwin you are right, but that’s what it is right now.
Setting up askbot sites for various languages is still on the list - currently there is a first test in preparation with the pt-BR project/language. If that goes well, other languages can follow soon. (but of course the points regarding fragmentation that have been mentioned already do apply - but if the majority of the userbase for a given language doesn’t speak English, there is no point in keeping it within the english one. OTOH if you only have a handful of active users in your language, askbot might not be the right tool anyway :-)).
But now people are busy with the conference, and probably will have to spend some time dealing with a backlog after returning,…
I can live with posting German-language questions here. Actually, I can live with the English site. But I keep getting support requests from friends who would be served better with a native language site. From what I gather the German-language community is strong enough.

having a forum for each language separate is an advantage and disadvantage the same time.
- everybody in a single language forum understands all
- if someone speaks more than one language he/she has the possibility to place the same question in the related language in another forum as well
- people going across various languages will find the same question again
PS I actually only wanted to write a comment but don’t find the comment tool. Could you possibly give me a hint?
@manj_k thanks for hint with the karma point and the related link It seems someone gave me 3 karma points as I can now place a comment. I might need to thank you for that.
And I don’t have the karma to upvote your answer, yet. Kind of a pity, this isn’t part of the stackexchange network. But mostly I am just happy if it works.
