    Let me know if you would like some subforums..

    To the participants in this forum, if you think there is enough interest for a set of dedicated subforums in your language please contact me..

    It would involve supplying a list of required forums and someone to moderate them.

    Thanks!

    Here's a suggestion received by mail from a member who doesn't read or write English:
    Film
    Småbilde
    Mellomformat
    Storformat
    Mørkerom
    Kjemi
    Link arkiv
    I don't mind moderating us Scandinavians too, but it would be nice to have a little assistance from a Swede and a Dane - the languages are similar enough that confusion sometimes occurs when a word means something different to the reader than it does to the writer.

    In my opinion....ther is no reson to spilt scandinavia in 3 different subforums...or 5 or 7 (dk, no, sv, Ålandsøerne, Finland, Færøerne and and)
    But one extra called Skandinavien-APUG-medlemmer....(bad name...pse find one better...) where APUG-SK members can write and exchange information ect....with referance to the main forum in English, German, Dutch, France.... oh yes we got a language problem her in Europe :-))

    It would be nice if there were a way to show a unified listing of all the postings in the Scandinavian subforums (and the French and Dutch for that matter). Perhaps it is already possible in the other languages, but I can't find the correct button to click.

    For the start at least, I think it will be counterproductive if readers have to hunt and peck for posts in a list of largely-inactive subforums.

    Sean and Ole.....

    My suggestion is the following:
    4 new subforums:

    APUG-NO
    APUG-SV
    APUG-DK
    APUG-SK (common for Scandinavia)

    If there is response from Finland, it may come later.....

    There aren't really enough of us (yet) to warrant splitting Scandinavia into individual countries - on the forum, that is. But if anyone from Finland wants to play too, we'll need an interpreter!

    I aggree. The languege differences aren't that major, and even if one or two words mean something else in another Scandinavian languege, it's very, very unlikely to cause much confusion or offence.

    As for a name... I don't really know? Polar APUG? (PAPUG?) Scandi-APUG? I kind of like the polar connotation.

    I don´t think it will be a good idea to split it up that much. What would the advantages be?

    I think it´s much better to stick to the original idea of a Scandinavian subforum, based on a (more or less) common language and geography.
