[SOLVED]Why there is not french forum for those speaking french ?



  • I saw some internationals forums in this developer network. But there is not french forum. I say because I speak very little English
    I don't know if there are many french in this network but this would be very interesting :)

    Soyez le bienvenu ;)
    Welcome to the forum

    Maybe because there is "another forum":http://www.qtfr.org/ in french?

    Anyway your english is good enough to participate here.

    All the other non-english forums belong to a group for that language. So far nobody seems to have requested a french group. Looks like we do not have many french Qt users here;-)

    Or they just decided to post in the base (english) forum. :-)

    Poles do have a subforum and there is not a single topic started there. Well, we are a lazy bunch ;)

    To be honest, I've always thought computer science is and should be English only. There is enough people programming using non-english words (for variables, method naes, comments, docs...) as it is. Last thing we need is to have "national" computer languages - it would make this profession totally damned. While now it stays fairly decent, especially with shiny existence of Qt.

    Not that I have anything against national subforums, they're fine. Just doing my occasional Friday ranting.

    CortmanEhf - there are some rules about who can request a subforum and when - you'll have to dig the subject, as I don't remember them myself.

    That's basically why I did not request a Dutch language subforum, although there is a Dutch group. That, and the fact that there are not that many Dutch speakers anyway, and not that many Dutch speakers-that-want-to-program-with-Qt-and-do-not-have-sufficient-mastery-of-English, I estimated ;-)

    That might be different for French, though.

    To request a group, you need to have Robot Herder status (>=1093 points).

    Yes, but a group != subforum. I think the requisites for subforum are different. There definitely was a topic about that going on some months ago.

    No, the first step is to get a group, and then based on that group, you can request a subforum. However, I understand there is some reluctance to adding more.



  • Thanks a lot for your aswers guys :D
    I'll try to speak english better ^^ and I will wait for a new group
    I already knew qtfr.org but I prefer the official network, i'm more trusting on you !
    (I suppose I should mark the topic "Solved" ?)


  • Moderators

    Once again welcome.

    Most of us are not native english like you are. But that's no problem: we all use the same language : Qt ;-)

    Btw you can mark this topic as solved if you feel your questions are answered.



  • Thanks a lot ! :D
    It's done ^^
