Subject description: at https://augras.eu/puppy_forum/
 

Hello all.

As the title says.
Please spread the news among your French-speaking colleagues!

A new Puppy forum for French-speakers has just opened at
https://augras.eu/puppy_forum .

I wish to thank forum member Philippe Augras (aka "augras") for his
generosity and commitment.

The new forum is using the ElkArte forum software, and is set-up so
each Original Poster can moderate his/her thread, in addition to the
general moderator. Because of this capacity, there should be no more
sterile and / or dead-end discussions amongst French-speaking Puppyists.

I was fortunate enough to be part of the tests, and I can tell you the
ElkArte interface is beautiful, and very well thought-out. Its editor is
excellent. The list of handy differences -- concerning graphics, etc. -- is
long compared to what this old phpBB forum is offering.

To be clear, I should add that our breaking off from the Murga-Puppy
forum is nothing personal against Flash or John Murga. It is rather a
criticism of the policy -- regarding the fact that these Puppy forum
sections are not moderated anymore, and has not been for many years,
as I understand it. For whatever reason, this Murga-Puppy forum has
not been able to replace the moderators it says it has.

Except Flash, of course, who is doing a fine job, and probably he has
his tongue to the floor at times trying to do everything. Hats off to you,
three times rather than one, my friend!

As the great American novelist Henry Miller once wrote: "If there is a
genuine need, it will be met."

Well, for us French-speaking Puppyists, our genuine need for a truly-
moderated forum has finally been fulfilled, thanks to augras. Our
prayers have been answered.

The French-speaking section of the Murga-Puppy forum has lost many
valuable members throughout the years for lack of proper moderation.

We hope this new Puppy forum will give them reason to re-ignite their
interest in Puppy Linux.

Thanks for all the learning and sometimes the giggly fun, Murga-Linux
forum. But bye-bye... (I personally will still be around now and then.)

But « rendez-vous » at https://augras.eu/puppy_forum/ if you
speak French!

interesting..... I could moderate for example in German or English but French??? I studied for a moment in 7th grade. I worked in France for French Cinematographers without knowing the language and they spoke no German or English (by choice) and we still made the movie. Been to Quebec and the Northeast Canada french speaking regions....I smiled a lot answered in German....keeps the French speakers guessing....point is I speak very little french other than Pomme Frites S'il vous plait and to get some nice wine.

Good luck with your new french language forum!! Don't forget to stop by here and say hello!

Hi Rockedge.

Obviously, if one does not know the language, one cannot moderate a
forum or section of a forum. (The creation of this new French language
forum is certainly not your fault.)

A few years ago, the French section had a moderator called "Béèm" and
a couple of others. The section was doing fine during that period. After
a while the moderators disappeared (cause unknown!!!) and were not
replaced.
I put my name up as a replacement moderator, but never
got an answer.

And then a pest joined as a member. An obtuse, stubborn, impolite,
know-it-all pest who started spoiling everything.

His favorite prey was developers. Our most interesting and talented left
one by one. This forum did next to nothing, because of free-for-all,
fend-for-yourself, policy (except cases of racism).

Last year, this pest was finally banned. But he reappeared under
another nickname. He used the same tactics as before; that gave him
away. Someone with the knowledge offered to set up a new forum.

Now you know a bit about the history that led to our decision.

Best regards.
