ZitatInstead we should open up the wiki to English articles written by English users for English users.
Zitatif the admin votes "no", this is "NO" - and certainly I will not push this because I lack the time.
Zitatset up a fresh wiki and use InterWiki links to connect them (like Wikipedia does)
Zitat von: Zrrronggg! am 05 März 2014, 05:14:541. most users where german. I did not see the benefit of writing a whole wiki in (probably only mediocre) english - which IS additional work even for people with good language skills - only to be read by mostly non english speakers.
ZitatThere was a time, where only 2 or 3 persons where doing such admin and maintenance work on the wiki. As a matter of fact I think this still is the case right now.
ZitatI work for the wiki almost every single day now: adding users, correcting articles, discussing stuff, write as an author, delete obsolete files etc. I know that at least 2 other persons do such work also frequently - and the wiki has only some 250 articles and some 150 users (where only 30 or so are actually active).
ZitatAnd then a new set of admins - native speakers - must be found to maintain that. Of course it would also need a new set of authors, no matter if they just translate german articles or write new ones from scratch. Also some of the german authors may write a basic translation of their contributions.
ZitatOkay, where did i go wrong?
