Needs an Arabic-speaking moderator in the same jurisdiction as the forum infrastructure.

The Arabic language board is open



A new board has be created for the Arabic speakers.
Anyone wanting to use this new board needs to join it first. https://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/page,29.html

This is a new feature that we are trying out. It means that other Members (who do not speak Arabic, and later other languages) can stick with the rest of the forum. They will not see the Arabic topics in the Recent-overview, or in their search Results.
Guests (anyone not logged in) will see the Arabic board. So Google and co can index it.

Hope this works well for everyone.


The board is currently moderated by Pascal111

From my perspective the Arabic section appears hidden.  Would it not be possible to provide a setting to customize the Recent list, rather than hiding other language sections? Is this a limitation of the forum platform?

لقد ولجتُ إلى القسم العربي وتسلّمت مهمّاتي ،تبدو بسيطة ،ولكن بانتظار مُشاركة posts الأعضاء.

So far we know of 2 or maybe 3 people that are on this board, and that said they speak Arabic.  One of them said they prefer English, one is you, and the "maybe" 3rd, well maybe they have no question yet.

So maybe this is a quest of new members to join?
Advertise to the Arabic speaking Pascal community (those not yet on the Forum), that they can come here.

لقد قُمتُ بإعلام اثنين من الأعضاء العرب عن طريق الرسائل بالقسم العربي الجديد ،ولديّ حساب FaceBook عربي يُمكنني أن أستخدمه في عمل إعلان كذلكـ ،لا بأس.

بعثتُ بالرسالة التالية على حسابي العربي على الـ FaceBook:

google translate:

"I sent the following message on my Arabic account on Facebook:"

Quote
تمّ افتتاح قسم جديد يستخدم اللغة العربية في تعليم لُغة الـ Free Pascal وبيئة الـ Lazarus في المُنتدى الرسمي لـ Lazarus. المُحاولة تبدو جديدة من نوعها في مُنتديات البرمجة الأمريكيّة وتمّ تعييني مُشرف لتنظيم سير العمل في هذا القسم الفرعي من المُنتدى. هذا القسم مازال في بدايته ويحتاج إلى كثير من مُشاركات الأعضاء والدعم.

A new section that uses the Arabic language to teach the Free Pascal language and the Lazarus environment has been opened in the official Lazarus forum. The attempt seems new in the American programming forums and I was appointed as a moderator to organize the workflow in this subsection of the forum. This section is still in its infancy and needs a lot of member participation and support.

كذلكـ بعثتُ بهذه المُشاركة على حسابي العربي على الـ FaceBook للتشجيع:

google translate:

"I also sent this post on my Arabic account on Facebook to encourage:"

Quote
في البوست السّابق الذي أعلنتُ فيه عن فتح قسم عربي في مُنتدى Lazarus لتعليم البرمجة بلغة الـ Free Pascal أودّ التنبيه إلى أنّهُ تمّ تعييني مُشرف بشكل مؤقّت أي أنّهُ في حين نشاط القسم العربي ووجود أعضاء أصبحوا على المُستوى الكافي لإدارة هذا القسم يُمكن تعيين مُشرف منهم بشكل طويل المدى.

In the previous post, in which I announced the opening of an Arabic section in the Lazarus Forum to teach programming in the Free Pascal language, I would like to point out that I was appointed as a temporary supervisor "moderator", meaning that while the Arabic section is active and there are members who have become sufficiently level to manage this section, a supervisor "moderator" can be appointed from them for a long time Term.

I think additional language subforums are good for Free Pascal/Lazarus.  Helps promote more usage of Object Pascal and a greater variety of choice.  Having more help and examples in a person's native language can be the difference as to what they will choose to use.

The attempt seems new in the American programming forums [...]

I'm not at all sure that this can be called an American programming forum; I think it's a good bet that an overwhelming majority of us are European and Asian ... ;D

Yeah, that's kind of implied in most being from Europe/Asia (except UK folks, o.c.) ;)

U.K. may not be E.U. any more, but Europe as a continent has afaik not changed.

And well, this is (and has been) an international forum.

But if the reference is to who provides the infrastructure then that is Europe.  I.e. the members of the team who are in charge of the infrastructure are (mostly?) European.

Admins/Moderator are global.
