    Hi,

    If I understood things correctly, the current team that handles the forum is a bit understaffed. That might slow things down.

  • Hi

    Still i haven't reply for my request hope some one can help me to solve that problem specially site admins.

    I've forwarded your request to web mailing list, let's see if that helps.



  • My personal experience shows that you have to very patient because the group approval takes a lot of time :( No idea why.



  • The fact that people are moving towards or in Bilbao at the moment (for QtCS and Akademy) doesn't help either, I'd imagine.

    Anyway: I don't think there is much enthusiasm in the web team anymore for more regional sub forums. For one, they are hard to moderate because there are usually no or only a few seasoned people who actually understand the language used in these forums.

    I am afraid that several people left the web team and at the moment in my opinion the team does not have enough resources to support all groups and forums.



  • It's called internet for a reason.

    So, what do you think that word means then, exactly?

    That it's all about connection, and not separation.

    And how does that match with having a regional group (in a language few people in the community speak) match with that, then?

    It splits up the community, don't you think? Best example is YouTube, which used to be a great place for international exchange back in 2007. Today, it's totally separated. The german YouTube main page looks nothing like the US YouTube (content-wise), and so do the comments. Everything back to regional topics and boundaries.
    Don't get me wrong, everyone is free to do whatever he likes and if people want regional groups, go ahead. But I personally think this is against the internet's spirit.

    I think we are in agreement then. To me, it just wasn't clear what argument you were making in the first place. :) Thanks for clarifying.



  • Hi

    Oh i am really sorry it seems some one got wrong idea about my thread , actually i request that group for organization purposes and introduce Qt for beginners in our country , no idea to change the language main purpose is create one place for share their ideas use in that group and also i believe its improve their contribute for the project.

    And also hope every one can help me to solve that situation. because it will help others in future.

    Thanks
