Nationality?
« on: 18:13, 05 December 06 »
Hi everybody..

What are your nationality  ;D

Lets make a survey! Maybe this forum has a voting facility! (Gryzor ;-))
Some people thinks that the CPCWIKI is "killing" the "local" CPC communities!
How do people think about this?

Does French, Spanish, German etc. people feel left out because the CPCWIKI is in English?

By the way i am from Norway!

Well I have Spanish and German nationalities and as you can see I have a fair knowledge of english.

I guess we could host translations of the articles in other languages, but I prefer to have all the possible information in english because it is the "lingua franca" today.

BTW,  does your nickname refer to the tree where the nine worlds of the nordic mythology hang from? (I love nordic mythology  :D)

Well, I'm Greek. The CPC was very popular here, quite certainly THE most popular 8-bit computer.

Concerning your comment about killing the local communities: do you have a link to any discussion? Is there really a complaint out there?

While I can appreciate the notion behind it, it's simply not true... Indeed the Wiki's language is English, and I insist on the first language being English because it reached many more, but other versions on an existing language are more than welcome!

Cheers
Gryzor

There is a thread about this subject at cpc-forever site.

http://www.cpc-forever.com/index.php?module=pnForum&func=viewtopic&topic=555&start=15#pid3498

It is in German. My German skills are not the best, but I think thats what the discussion is about!

Why not? It's totally open, ain't it? If we gather enough votes we could add a small box on the front page with the results...

Hi all, 1 Australian here, who loves his CPC, but has very little technical knowledge, so probably can't contribute much.

Welcome, mate... I added 'Australian' to the poll, you can change your vote to that - sorry I missed that!!!

Also, no need to be technical - you could write on anything you know something about or like - be it a game, or a memory, anything at all!

Greetings!

Hate to be pedantic old chap, but you need to change the "English" option to "British".

British is the proper nationality for people in England, Wales and Scotland.

I'm from Scotland. I voted other, since there's no option for British. :)

It's all good though. Great to be among fans of the computer I wasted(?) countless childhood hours on back in the 80's  ;D

How right you are... Silly me! I remember when I was living in Wales (Cardiff), my mom kept sending me parcels addressed to England since we tend to confuse the nation for the empire (yikes). I kept telling her, "mom, someday they'll use your parcels to burn my appartment!" :)

Welcome - feel free to change your vote to British!

Yeah, I'm surprised you got the parcels.  :D I moved to the U.S. five years ago and I am constantly explaining the difference between England, Britain and the United Kingdom. I can see how it could be confusing for outsiders though.

Hello everybody.

Well, I am from Madrid, Spain.

Still many of my Cpc-friends of Madrid are not here but when they do it probably we win to the rest.

Like Deepfb, Transformer, Mochilote, etc..

I hope if some CPC-persons visit Madrid tell me to see us, OK.


CPC forever.

Darn - almost made it to a CPC meeting in Madrid a few weeks back, but something (actually, a career opportunity) came up... :(
