Post subject:  Subforum for the Austrian Go Association in German?

The Austrian Go Association (= "Österreichischer Goverband") once had its own forum software, but it's been neglected and is now defunct. So I had the idea to revive it as a subforum on L19.

One problem is that the discussion will likely take place using the German language. This would only be feasible if the forum software supports separate "new posts" pages - one for the subforum, the other for the other subforums. It would of course be out of the question to include non-English posts in the default "new posts" list because if other national Go associations want the same feature this could become unreadable very quickly.

Uhm, but Marcel, the Austrian Go Association has its own domain, why not install a phpBB forum there?

And maybe the admins of L19 would assist you in installing whatever is needed for the SGF stuff?

Yes, I'm aware of that domain. :lol: The point was to use a well-known public forum and attach to that so as to maybe attract new players. The previous forum was under that domain, but players wandered off to other forums or to Facebook.

Also, it might attract more players to the standard L19 forums.

One option is to make a group where only users of that group see the forum. The downside is that users have to be added to the group one by one.
