    Some regrouping on the forum

    As part of improving the forum structure, I've created a separate category for Slavic languages. You will be able to see it from the homepage. More Slavic languages may be added later but right now it only includes Slavic languages that existed on the forum.

    I also plan to split the large "LEARN RUSSIAN LANGUAGE" category into two smaller categories:

    1. where foreigners actually learn Russian, such as Grammar, Vocabulary, Getting Started, Questions, etc.
    2. resources for learning Russian, such as Books, Videos, Dictionaries, Translations, etc.

    I may create a category for Off-topic and other chit-chat if needed.

    I plan to create a separate category for Russians learning English. There will be only one forum now "English for Russians" but I can add more if they will be needed.

    Your comments and suggestions are welcome.

    Тогда надо будет кучу старого материала перетаскивать в новые форумы. Трудоёмкая работа.

    Нет, не надо будет Старые форумы останутся старыми, но будут в новой категории. А новые форумы добавятся с нуля.

    Из названия сербско-хорватско-боснийского раздела почему-то исчезло слово Serbian...

    Re: Some regrouping on the forum

    Previously, I believe that the grouping on the forum Грамматика, переводы и словарный запас was written in English. Is this going to go back to English or are you nudging me to learn Russian or is this your polite way of trying to tell me to stop responding to questions and only post?

    It's because we have quite a few Russians on the forum, and this section was made for Russians learning English as a second language. It was called "English for Russians" before. Everybody can post questions about ESL there. And everybody who's in the know is welcome to answer them.

    Re: Some regrouping on the forum

    I am afraid, too, that some native English speakers would never even open a section with the name "Smth in Cyrillic" and with the subname "Ответы на вопросы по английской грамматике и помощь в переводах. Предпочтительно спрашивать на английском, чтобы иностранцы могли вас понять, но допускается использование русского" (smth very very long in Cyrillic).
    Earlier, many of them did not visit that section quite often. Now, they can just never open it.

    We Russians can perfectly understand all those titles written in English. More so because if we ask about English, we learn it and know it more or less. But if there is a native who could help me and answer my question, it doesn't mean s/he needs to know Russian at all. He/she only needs to know English.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    When you browse new messages they are being taken from all forums. So the foreigners should be able to see them too. And if the message is in English (as recommended) then the foreigner will be able to understand and help.

    Dear Master Admin...

    As I have been since coming on this site... I will be way too honest here and let you (and the rest of the group know) that I almost did not open your posting yesterday because I saw it was in a "Russian" area. But as you had put your title in English and it looked interesting, ...I was brave!

    Maybe others are younger, bolder & wiser than I am and know Russian and will take chances; however, here I was yesterday, someone who has been on your site a little while and I was going to skip right over it just as Olya predicted.

    If I may, I would suggest a dual language on the description (is that possible)? That would make it clear to all and solve both issues.

    I am not sure all the members read it in this way. There might be people who read only some of the subforums and don't use "View new posts" at all. I used to do so.
    If you have problems with both posting new messages and sending PMs, you can send an e-mail to the Forum Administrator here:

    Re: Some regrouping on the forum

    I never use "View new posts".

    And I would never open a forum with a title in, say, Japanese. Even if it had threads in Russian inside.

    Некоторые разделы недоступны. Например Society и Music, Lyrics. Причем, если по музыке за бортом что-то явно происходит, обновляются темы и т.п., то в Society вообще все по нулям.

    Форуму надоели политические дрязги и он решил отомстить.

    Политические дрязги! Даже представить себе этого не могу: губер.. ой, то есть модераторы объединяются в коалицию против администратора, отдельные лица форумного электората с оранжевыми шарфами на аватарах кричат "долой модераторов, они проплачены". Администратор объявляет группу модерторов неконституционной и назначает переназначение. Правила форума меняются ежедневно. Появляются статьи "Измена форуму" и "форумный шпионаж
    Форумный ОМОН разгоняет митинги в разделе Site Comments и банит виртуальных генералов (у которых сообщений больше 3000) за то что те просто собрались поболтать не в том месте. Лимоновцы залезают на шапку форума Master Russian и размахивают там нацистскими баннерами. Студенты и Воронежа болкируют доступ к форуму участниками из Африки, а питерские скинхэды - лицам из бывших союзных республик.
