Re: Axis and Allies

Sorry, but I only succeeded in logging in today and I don’t think I’ve visited that site often either. For a long time I’ve been using another e-mail too. Anyway, I don’t feel I would like to play.

Re: Japanese/English Poetry Books [Bilingual] - Recommendations?

I could recommend The Classic Tradition of Haiku: An Anthology . The haiku are in romaji followed by at least one translation and some have notes. I don’t think there is a dark theme, but there are ones related to death. Example: Nadeshiko no / naze oreta zo yo / oreta zo yo Why did the pink break, ...

Re: Website feedback needed!

I’m in Blackpool, England and using IE8. Site loaded up in around 3 or 4 seconds and the video in around 5 minutes. (Edit: Another loading of the video was in around 3 minutes.) Concerning other things, the dark red and grey text can be a bit difficult to see and the white has slight brightness, but...

Re: please check these sentences

The only mistakes I could find out were... But..., What mountain → Which mountain ( Am I wrong ? ) "Which mountain" as well as "Which Japanese writer" sound better to me. Also, I don't think "favourite" holds a superlative quality. For example I would say "Majora's Mask is my most favourite out of ...

Re: Native Language Profile Setting

Yes, some may be more encouraged, but you still won’t know their native language if they put NA. So what is the difference?

All of those who look at that option could still not tell their native language, which I thought was the point.

Re: Native Language Profile Setting

Putting NA is no different than not putting anything at all. You either have everyone state their native language or you might as well keep things as they were before.

Re: Native Language Profile Setting

Sending a notification with a reason to encourage members to add their native language and a link to this thread if there are any concerns I think would be good.

Also, if you’re going to implement those changes then perhaps that could be added to the notification too.

Re: Native Language Profile Setting

However, there must be some members who don't want to tell their native language, so answering "N.A.(No answer)"(or something like that) could be one of options. Wouldn’t that be similar to the same position we have now? Maybe it could be made a need to be able to register, but as for others, they ...
