It may yet be a wonder that the forum may not have secured a good appell with some players as they may only speak Spanish.

...It Kind of reminds me of when the phone rings,

I pick it up and speak in English and they go off in Spanish.

Realizing they cannot communicate they some times rudely hang up!

Maybe some of our really good topis have useful topic information and maybe one of you guys can translate and repost it in Spanish or orther language so that no one can be felt left out!

This will require a good volunteer who will do it well and will not take short cuts or cut corners on the topic....

Only focus on topics that are deemed most useful of course!

Trust me!...I would have posted this and every other topic I wrote as well as other peoples topics if I could!

... sorry!, No Habla Espanol!

I don't think it's a language problem, it's more of a participation problem. more than half the people who come out to play don't participate on the forums.

If your going to translate everything to Spanish then you are going to have to translate everything to Creole and Portuguese who combined roughly equal the amount of Spanish only speaking in South Florida.

You are so right but a high majority I have seen speak Mostly in Spanish!

In California at the CQB city, I met up with many Asians who would call out tactics in there own language.

Anyways, It would be interesting to see if we could host any interesting posts that have solidly good information in another major translated script to thus promote the forum and the sport.

Unfortanatelly I cannot do it but maybe one who knows the language can do a bit of translating can help as a team effort.... Not every Idea we think up can always be done alone!

Hispanics don't always speak English even if they know the language....its actually considered a great insult in many countries, but in America we are kinda retarded.

Well a great example of a first step on Translation would be a topic Introducing airsoft and some of the rules of the sport.

Later on maybe a few of you can later add translated stuff about some popular scenarios.

It will only work if some one tried to kick start an effort... I do not think it is rude to speak another language if it can also be provided in translation....My objective is to bring everyone together and not leave anyone to feel left out.

The only thing retarded anbout America is the lack of willing effort.... this is a good topic to address.

The effort would be to learn English. BTW if you can't speak English you can't pass the citizenship test...so that basically means either they are not here legally or they were born here and are too lazy to learn english.

Not true. My parents came here without knowing english as legal residents. Citizenship is optional but recommended.
