Another future artist coming

Post by Kenc3 » 17 Jul 2009, 07:30

My nephew who is a senior in High School finally sat down with the viperfish tutorial. He has been on it for 3-4 hours aleady. Seems to be very involved in it. He can draw full length chracters on paper now. I have a scanner to input them into te computer so it is only a matter of getting the proper format and he will pass me.
I told him if he learned to speak english, he could get on th forum and learn from the teachers. :bananaclaus: :bananamouse:

It sounds like he might teach the teachers. ;)

If you really want to make this an international community I don't see why you would not....

It does bring the issue of who and how you would moderate the forums.... you would probably need 2-3 volunteers per language to make sure you could keep the new forums up. Would it be a lot of work to support Asian and Cyrillic text?

I don't have any language skills to help ... wish I did...

The Philippines is full of artists. They speak Tagalog. I speak English and about 5 words of Tagalog. They learn Tagalog is school but, never practice it so they forget it.
I may have to make a CD or DVD of Truespace and all the tutorials and manual for them to pass around while it is still available.
Right now, I think I am the only one online from here.
It would be a large project and would keep the busy and out of trouble. It might even give some a new career. :bananacool2:

Just a note I'll jump right on behind Prodigy and say "yes to multiple languages sections!" As for Moderation, how many times in the past has this community not been able to moderate itself?

May I make a couple of suggestions about that idea?

I don't mind as long as they don't cross. Many times German was being written at
the Caligari forums in an English site. They have a Forum in Germany for just that purpose.
If the threads here start getting mixed up I'm against it.
Which language would you chose? There are many nationalities using this site you cannot
possibly keep everyone happy.

OK instead let us all speak Mandarin! :roll:
1. Chinese* (937,132,000)
2. Spanish (332,000,000)
3. English (322,000,000)
4. Bengali (189,000,000)
5. Hindi/Urdu (182,000,000)
6. Arabic* (174,950,000)
7. Portuguese (170,000,000)
8. Russian (170,000,000)
9. Japanese (125,000,000)
10. German (98,000,000)
11. French* (79,572,000)

I forgot to mention. Tagalog uses the same alphabet. It is a sort of Spanish with the Philippine dialects added in.

Well a very large amount of the TScommunity speak German, while there are plenty of minorities such as Taglog or strangely there are very few Japanese users that I can see, perhaps allowing users to post in their own language with either the English version underneath or state "you can reply in *insert language*" would be acceptable, provide a warning which language it is in the thread title, I'd see no problem

I can predict native English speakers may have a problem, and non-native English speakers will be all for this idea, the only way to make sure this idea would work is to test it out, and should you need a testbed I'm willing to offer any threads I create, I mean in the past many of us have slipped in the odd phrase or two in another language, heck, maybe formalising something like this would help all us lazy native English speakers get offa our lazy arses and learn another language!
