    Is it allowed to have a foreign language forum, say for example, Dutch.... I believe that there could be restrictions with posting in any other language except English.
    I want to post some Dutch jokes that are really not funny in English and I suspect a large Dutch community here.

    we don't have a rule that says that it is not allowed, but it is better to only post in english so that everyone can read it.

    I s'pose you could post the joke in Dutch, then translate it to English, then explaine the funny part of it (cos you said it aint funny in English.. )

    maybe if I keep it in funny stuff, {I}{K}{E} ...

    *There used to be a rule with Invision.. one needed permission to post in any other language...so I presumed VB would be the same.

    Yeah. Somehow that rule seems to have been lost. We remember that we did have it before.

    Are you speaking on behalf of The Borg or the queen.
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    Pluralis majestatis.

    Former mods often have delusions of grandeur.

    The rule I was refering to was not a FST rule but an Invision rule. One needed to ask permission from Invision if a foreign language was to be used...
