The problem with auto-translators is that they only know words, not context or intent. They generally do a passable job if given languages with a common root (Spanish->English for instance), but it give it something like Japanese->English, and it'll fail hard.

Even if you DO use 2 languages with relatively similar rules, they're going to screw up slang, wordplay, humor, etc, as well as guessing wrong when a word can have 2 meanings but requires 2 different words in the target language.

im pretty sure not a lot of people here know every english word.

With the speed tech advances at paired with the huge number of countries that speak English, even if as of this second you DO know every word, you won't 3 hours from now. :)

This isn't a gaming forum... it's just a bunch of guys that know each other, some of whom are trying to make it into a gaming forum

It was a forum originally for people playing a game called KoC. While the game and the in-game alliance it was created for are both long dead, it remains a forum populated by people who are gamers of some kind... so even if it's not a gamING forum atm, it's still a gamER forum.

Creating a community requires time, people and lots and lots of effort, but what helps now and then to keep you motivated is the knowledge that all the work you put into it matters to your members. Trerro is the only person (and maybe aamer too) that actually put in hard work on this site, so be nicer to him.
