Sean, after surfing through almost all of the German threads today, it is interesting to see the amount of new people posting. Most having under 5 posts to their name!.
Whilst there appeared to be some doubt to the need, or necessity of a German sub-forum by some German speaking APUG members, it does seem that there were more than a few people out there who could not converse in English well enough to participate.
I'm sure these new people, who voted with their keyboards, are thankful.
Time will tell, hopefully it will be well used.
