    A Georgian forum?

    Hey MasterAdmin, any chance we could get a Georgian language forum going in the "Beyond Russian" section? Anybody else interested in this?
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    ...no, but seriously, you don't HAVE to be ethnic Georgian to speak the language, do you? Besides, I don't see hordes of Arabs or Poles, either... Just a thought; maybe I am the only person interested, but then again, maybe others are too?

    Polish is there because it is a Slavic language.
    Arabic, yes a bit random, but it IS a commonly learnt foreign language.

    Georgian is obscure. I actually asked for one myself ages ago I believe! I shall try and dig out the thread.

    Try this site about Georgia and Georgian culture: http://www.nukri.info/ (it's in russian)
    There are some topics on forum like "How to say it in Georgian" etc. and textbooks and other books on Georgian language (some of them are in English).

    Then why isn't there a 'misc' languages section where everything that doesn't belong to a language category already here could go?

    Unless people would be offended by that... though I don't see why.
    Please correct any Russian language mistakes I make.

    A misc forum would be alright actually. There is no Czech or Slovak forum!

    OK, I'd vote for "misc" forum -- as long as it offended at least SOMEBODY. So you'd have to name it the "Misc Language Forum (anything but Commanche)" or "Anything but Welsh."

    This is a Russian forum! Voting shmoting. Someone needs to slip Mr. MR a few dollars over PayPal.

    No. If we're lobbying for a miscellaneous forum, then we get to pay in miscellaneous currencies. Iraqi Dinars, anyone?

    How about a forum named: ALL THE OTHER WORLD LANGUAGES, WHETHER THEY STILL EXIST OR NOT?

    That should cover most of them.

    Then you'll just offend the nerds who want to speak Elvish or Klingon or whatever...
