What can we do about foriegn languages? By this I mean 2 things.

One is having a mirror of this site in a forgien language, so more people can add to it

I understand that for the first bit to happen you need someone to translate the user interface for this site.

I also mean about some way to denote if a comic is in a forieng language. (If you do the first part, it will really need this part!)

I can understand the first part, but I don't see why comics need language markings.

Translations wouldn't have to be mirrors, the site should be able to handle alternate text based on user preferences, assuming someone modified the site code appropriately.

I haven't looked at the source code myself so I'm not be too sure.

Let's just say, I for one am annoyed at going to comic sites, and finding out they are in different languages then English. Also, it would raise the posibility of being able to filter for language latter, if you ever want to to develop that.

It would be VERY helpful if you started making it so that people can use a non-english user interface for this site, as they would most probably be suggesting comics that are mainly NOT in English.

If you made a forign language interface, there will be two problems. One is minor as it comes to translating things like notices, comments, and other such things. The second will be that if you use the one database, then this place may get swamped with comics we can't understand (this time because of the language, not just the creators insanity.)

I can see this possibility coming and recommended this as the only other option I can think of to avoid that problem is to use seperate databases for each language. That would create its own issues.

But some of the best comics are the non-english ones .

I'll see what I can do about giving the site a language toggle when I'm free... next week. Kick me if I've forgotten and nobody who actually coded the site has chimed in.

Ok, I've asked for the information to have a look.
