Well, i`m working on the Dutch translation of the board`s interface.
It`s uploaded, but there are still some bugs, like wrong texts or the search form which doesn`t work quite right now.

Anyone who wants to try it out:
Just select Nederlands in the bottom of the screen, next to the skin choice.  

And yes, that`s the little surprise i am working on

And just keep uploading your pictures,space should be unlimited

Was gonna suggest similar things to waht have been mentioned already...

Old topics... Closed/Deleted and where applicable reference pages opened... In cases of for sale ads maybe closed but with topic there as sold cars showing what went for what money and ya never know maybe the buyer will see it and say what its really like...?

Loads of forums on sites seem to forget about old posts and new comers want the information but without all the banter/off topic chat which comes with it...

That's a good point about forsale adds, maybe they should auto delete after 31 days?

If it does not sell then you just repost it.

Nothing worse than finding what you want, then realising it was forsale like 2 years ago  

No good to anyone that.

Of course sorting out all the old posts into a nice well layed out data base would be nice.

But who is gonna spend the days that that is gonna take to sort out  

& some replys to started topics are better info than the topic itself so what do you keep???????


The forum in different translations is a great idea as there is alot of clever people who can't speak english out there.

How easy would it be translate into other tongues then?

Russian & French would be the big two I think. That would cover half the globe.

Oh yeah & of course American too!!!!

we had a big discusion about language and how to implement it at our work, because we support factory's all over the world, and witch one we need to use, the outcome was that english is the most spoken language, 2e, spanish, 3e, chinese, 4e, arabic and than french. to keep everything simple at work, we gone stick whit english. this would save us money, but even more time to implement every language and even deliver support in all those languages. for a forum, if you start using several languages, this means you need a forum for each language. we already tryed serveral translation packs and program's, but they where rubbish to say the least. the idea is very good, but not very practical. what you could do is make a translation section/function (linked to google translate, babbelfish or something else) and let the user copy that into a topic. most forums dont have this. atleast i never came across it in a forum.

the idea to remove older ads is a good idea, its maybe also a good idea to let the seller fill in a "form" where they can say if they ship (outside the country), what the asking price is, insteed off bidding on it (we have ebay for that, and we, buyers, always under bid) and what payment option you can use. that makes it easyer for the buyers and saves the seller from emails and pm's. same can be done for the buyer, if he/she wants to place a ad for wanted parts. maybe a positive/negative feedback option for the seller/buyer could be handy to. i know there is a risk off abuse like on ebay, but sinds f.p is growing, its worth a tought.

on corral.net (116,389 members worldwide) they do something similair, they linked the positive/negative feedback option to the name off the seller/buyer, but also to the ad and the products sold/bought (and hidden for public, also the ip number off the seller and buyer). they also made a feedback forum just to share the experiance buying/selling stuff to the buyer/seller. and i must say, it works very good. you always have scammers, but this way they are more exposed to the public and even the police can make cases against these scammers, because they are easyer to trace back.

just a idea, i know it took me a other day to think about this

In all honousty, I don't see the point in making a dutch (or in any other language for that matter) version of the board when all the discussions are in English anyway.
