Could we please get the News board in English (and Russian if needed) ?
A bad english is better than a russian only, Message Board...


Можем ли мы получить газетную доску на английском (и, если необходимо, на русском)?
Плохой английский лучше, чем русский, доска объявлений ... HEHE :)

+1 for this, now News section is not very useful for non-Russian people.

1. We will write the news in English.

2. I write a lot in the section "Science".
https://boinc.progger.info/odlk/forum_forum.php?id=2
In this section it is difficult for me to write in English.
If someone has questions about this section, please ask them in English. I will also answer in English, I can use Google-translate.

3. This applies to all other sections of the forum.
As you might have noticed, if the question is asked in English, we answer also in English.

4. I can advise everyone who is interested in our site, also use Google-translate.
It's simple!
https://translate.google.com/

5. I agree with this opinion
Science is not only in English @Gunde you should know that better than myself a stupid ignorant uneducated U.S. American let me help the ignorance , this project has SSL so the NO winning side of this is because nobody knows you can auto translate or use something like https://translate.google.com/ or https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/google-translator-for-firefox/ and you can auto set firefox to translate! or if you run chrome https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/google-translate/aapbdbdomjkkjkaonfhkkikfgjllcleb or if you are stuck in old days and BeOS and Opera you can use https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/google-translate-8/ .

Though I agree that it isn't necessary to have all content in English, it would be very important for the project admins to weigh how much support they would lose by not supporting English as it tends to be the most dominant language across the BOINC community. I for one would not even bother with trying to use Google Translate by copy/paste as it would be way too time consuming. I will not add any special add-ons to my browser just to cater to a project. Too many potential problems on my system that could arise from add-ons. Luckily, Google Chrome does a good job at translating on its own. I don't typically use Chrome but am finding there are more and more websites unwilling to code their pages to support the larger population. This brings me back to my point. Who does this project try to appeal to and are they content with the majority of others not bothering due to a simple translation they as well could do on their end with the same tools they suggest?

If it's not in English then most BOINC users will not be able to read it unless they copy and paste into a translator. Surely one translation on your page is better than thousands of users all translating individually.

Just my 10 cents worth or ₹ 6.436


Если это не на английском языке, большинство пользователей BOINC не смогут прочитать его, если они не копируют и не вставляют в переводчик. Разумеется, один перевод на вашей странице лучше, чем тысячи пользователей, все переводятся индивидуально.

Только мои 10 центов или ₹ 6,436

And I have another arithmetic :)

I made 930 messages on the forum.
I will assume that each user has read no more than two of my messages.
Users total 390. Consequently, all users have made only 780 translations.
While I would have to do 930 translations!

I repeat for all users once again.
Ask your questions in any section of the forum in English, what specifically interests.
And you will receive an answer in English.

I think that every user should not repeat what has already been said many times.
