A chairde,

Tá muid ag obair ar leagan amach nua le haghaidh na FORUMS. Mar gheall ar sin, caithfidh muid Gaeilge chruinn a chur ar na focail thíos. An bhfuil moltaí ag éinne? (Má's é do thoil/bhur dtoil é.) Seo an liosta:

We're working on a new layout for the FORUMS. consequently, we need to put proper Irish on the words listed below. Suggestions anyone? (Please.) Here's the list:

I think this board could be more user friendly. It does take to long to load when the page is anything over 10 posts!

Can't wait!

Jessica,

Make sure to check out Aonghus' contribution to this same question on the Irish-only board.

I too look forward to a bit different format.

As I said in my post to the question on the Irish board, I'm a little concerned at all the classes of members this seems to be introducing.

I for one am reluctant to pick a category of membership for myself; It is up to the community and each individual here to decide what value to put on contributions.

Also, I dislike censorship.

I think the current format works well.

A Aonghuis, a chara,

I don't post on many boards at all, but I think the volume of posts determines the membership level, not expertiese or anything else. If someone that knows better thinks that's not right, feel free to correct me.

I too am loathe to censorship, but I don't think a change of this sort would necessarily equate to censorship. I think that the benefit of a board where you have an established identity is that you don't have people going around posting under multiple handles. That's never been a big issue here, but I know other boards where it's a terrible problem.

That said, this format has seemed to work well for the most part. So, change or no change, I look forward to hanging around here for a long time.

Le meas,

Bradford

I, too, like the current format. It allows for intermingling of contributers and queries of all levels. How would one determine which level he or she is at within the community? Should anyone feel unwelcome contributing or asking a question in a forum of another level? The whole idea breaks down on many levels from the onset and smacks of censureship and discrimination.
If one feels that they are becoming bogged down in matters simplicity, the manner of the current system allows them to simply start a new thread; the older ones still being available for review.
I see how the staff might be trying to save thread space by introducing this new system. Some of threads have become quite massive in length of content. But, this just goes to show how many of us there are and too what passion we hold some of the subjects discussed. It's also why we have archives and search options.
Nooo. Let us keep this page merely as an exercise for the vocabulary introduced. To go further would bring us to the slipperey slope towards any form of eliteism. Which is what has done the most damning of our mother tongue historically.
Le míle árd meas,
-Maidhc.

I am a freqrent user of many boards and forums. I understand your reluctance but I see some advantages that would really benifit some of the users.

Post count: This will show that you are dedicated members, any new users will be able to see this straight away. You would be in essance respected. Because you level of Irish and your ablility to help will be noted.

Moderators: Are not there to censor your work, they are there to help the forum keep on track. For example. The thread on "I'm an unhappy Irish person" would have been locked a long time ago or at least started afresh when revived if there was a moderator. They would also be able to take complaints and any issues that arise.

Also ability to edit/delete posts that might be offensive or looking to cause trouble. Also stops double posting(more than one thread on the same topic)

Avatars: These are little pictures that can be put beside your name. The reason I like these is you begin to associate a picture with a user and no longer need to read who wrote what.

Loading: Much faster when it is updated. I find that the longer the post the longer the wait. Can be very frustrating and discourging also.

Ability to edit: We all make mistakes and even change our minds. This will allow us to change our own individual posts.

In my opinion it would be more user friendly, when a new member joins, this forum is very old in comparison to newer ones and they might be discouraged. Please keep an open mind. But I'm happy either way once the Gaeilge is the main aim.
:)

Ah, If I had the power to edit ;)

You can also, with the new look that might possibly be happening here

View other users: So you can see and welcome any new users. See if friends are online.

See the last post made on any thread, so you know if there is replies.

Generally option to tick a box that says "notify of replies". So if there is an important topic you can be notified as soon as people post on it.
