Default Language is Wrong!!!

Postby Aline in Ottawa » Aug 01, 2008 4:21 pm

Why do I have "British English" as default language? The list has "nothing" else. Get with the program guys... we're in Canada. It should at least say: English CDN or English USA.

Kelly,

Granted, but when was the last time you chose British English in a Word Processor for example??? Why not just put "English"??? Gimmie a break!!!

British English is the only choice on one of pages I looked at. Perhaps more choices will be added as time goes by. As for American English, it is definitely more efficient given we can say the same thing using fewer key strokes.

I can't figure out how to add an automatic signature.

I think there are alot more important and critical bugs then the simple description of the english used for this forum!

Trish...is that why the Amercains have bastardized the English language!!LOL J/K..

If you go to the bottom of the page..you will see User Conttrol Panel (okay so someone doesn't know the English language well..;) )

Go there..at the top tabs, go to Edit Profile. Then along the side menu (in blue) should be edit avatar and signature...or something like that.

Andre..I think we are having a little fun with this now...at least I am.

We have to put a fun twist around this!

The only thing that really bugs is the lagging caused by too much topics. Angus said it's the first thing to be fixed.

After that, I think most of us are going to go back at our daily chatting and get use to the forum.

As for the ads on the sides... alot of forums started adding them last month, I guess it's a new trend to help bring in revenues! OG added theirs couple days back and their viewing area is alot smaller!!

There's still a lot of empty space...squeezing the ads and expanding the forum area??

things have been faster since they got rid of the empty space in the reply boxes...I don't have the patience to go to PT (except once in a while) because it lags so...this one seems to be the best so far!

Hi Aline:
I'm from the other side of the pond, so English Language is fine by me!
I really don't like American English.
