Posting in other languages, please be friendly but clear
The subject must be as old Santa, but there still seems to be a lot of misunderstanding on the subject:
Every now and then people post in other languages than English, like this one. I tend to leave a (IMO rather friendly) comment, saying:
"Please see this https://meta.askubuntu.com/a/3616/72216 - questions should be asked and responded to in english. Thank-you."
This is not a political statement, not a value label, just a reminder of the practical agreement we have that this site is in English.
Also every now and then, I get a grumpy comment suggesting (like in the example) That I should rather translate the post. The comment is even upvoted.(?)
Please don't leave a comment suggesting so, it gives people the wrong impression that we are running a translation service here.
We do not ask people to write a poem in English, and most of us are willing to do some editing if the language is a bit of a problem but the question is clear.
Don't suggest we should translate a question, and publically suggest it is "unfriendly" to ask people to post in English.
