Russian board for Bloodlines 1/2
« on: March 28, 2019, 03:04:43 PM »
Since there has long been a German forum branch of the game, I think now it's time to suggest the creation of an additional board for Russian users. The Russian game community is the one of largest and most active, the many cool things are exactly done by Russian moddes; so now, when the Bloodlines 2 is announced, there will be even more users and discussions! The semi-official Russian site is down for a long years, the only group in local social network is alive, and it's not really enough.

As for me, I could lead the basic topics about modding and Unofficial Patches, do some moderation tasks etc, while some other users might agree to lead VTMB2-related ones.

I'd be cool with that. When we get the current forum issues resolved, as long as the other admins are also cool with it, we could do it.

This would be fine with me. I think we should replace the Antitribu Mod board with it and merge the latter into the Bloodlines Modding board! After all the ATM is pretty much dead, unless Psycho-A can get Lenuska to come over which she will then do in the Russian board anyway :)!

Presuming the forum fixes worked for a day or so, I should be able to add the Russian board Sunday.

I have no objections to this at all! A russian section can be made in both categories. On that subject, would you like a German section for Bloodlines 2 as well? That can easily be added under the correct category now as I finally have new subboard creation fixed.

I would propose, if it works better for any localized boards, make a distinct "block" for each particular language (I mean, those like "vampire bloodlines", "pnp roleplay", "general board")

I think this is a little bit early. The German board isn't exacltly very busy so any B2 discussion there isn't bad :)!

Well the description of russian board if totally off. Firstly the community contains not only russian citizens but a lot of russian speakers from other countries. Secondly you shouldn't translate word "Bloodlines" because now it seems like a board to some genetic nerds.
I have no intent to be harsh to the person who wrote it, it just an option. I apologise if my words seem rude.

I just used Google translate from "For Russian fans of Bloodlines" as the description, no ill will intended. What would you prefer in it's place?

Ah, this is the problem with machine translations! I think asking Psycho-A for a better description we can insert would be the best option (Psycho-A will be moderator). Me and Sig are the admins, and as we don't speak or write russian this will explain why the description does not work in the right syntax. Sorry about that! Hopefully it can be fixed soon! It wouldn't be the first time something like this has happened!

I just suggest to use "Для русскоговорящих поклонников Bloodlines" (it's Russian language).

Well something like this: "Для русскоговорящего комьюнити VtM:B". Or you can use: "Для русскоговорящего сообщества Bloodlines". The second one is a direct translation without using english word "community" spelled ciryllic which is common to use these days.
But I guess that Pshyco-A as a moderator of the bord could say if it fits first.

Haha I've been a little late. But I like that option Pshyco-A suggested. Thanks for the quick fix guys :)

Being moderator, how can I stick or close the topic in the branch I have permissions to? I can't see available options for that.
Should I login as a moderator or something?
