Word games with a difference

I'll do it again, but in the normal discussion.

 It was a suggestion - word games !!! Since not all can participate and because some have to translate. Would it be a coincidence in all countries to make a pun in one's own language? Certainly some would be pleased about that. Wines exception would be brestimmt times resisted. Or?

Would be too human !!!

    Yesterday I posted word games in the Fun Arena. Unfortunately, this was also removed. At the moment here in the pages much away one that one informs about it. Why? It is disrespectful. And it would include giving a comment with reason. I hate that and it's not human.

    When people start identical topics, one of them is normally closed as duplicates are apparently not allowed.

    @Spinnifix, the reason your comment got edited was because it was unsupported language. As the community is only available in English, we have to remove it.

    hi Guys I have had it a few times that I have posted it in English and it has been removed. Then it always means - unsupported language. Question: Are there 2 English languages? Then I would have to be informed. Sometimes it does not always work well with the translation, as you know. For me it is nonsense and you have boredom and just have to remove it. I have often seen that. It is not a duplicate either. Yesterday in soda my contribution in English was also removed. Had only the players answered. What is going on here. Again, if you remove stuff, please have a polite comment. That's easy. The players are demanding everything, but their employees do what they want. Where is that fair ???



    I have put my text in the translator in English !!! That's all I can do!!! Please refer!!!

    To my first comment with the puns was also ignored. Too bad. Maybe the players who are concerned have more to say about it. Would be nice and would be happy !!!

    Sometimes your translated posts are difficult to understand. But that is the fault of the translating service. Sometimes it comes through as German and I have even seen a mix of English and German. Would you like me to tag you whenever I see a post made by you that may need to be translated better?

    Hello Rancid

     If I see in my notifications and put it in German, it comes half German and half English over. Question: What can I do for it? If the community was designed for any language, as it is everywhere and belongs, it would not be a problem. Only I am then the suffering. I write in the Translator, of course German - translated into English. Before I put it in the comment field, I check before, if a German word is there. In contrast, the community can do something that makes it all work properly.


     Its not my mistake!!!

    I know it is not your mistake. As I said in my previous post, that is the fault of the translating service. If there was abetter translator, then I would tell you and it would help others too. We should all keep trying and be patient as we all make mistakes.

    @Rancid

    As I read you understood my text. Then everything is fine. I am one who sees it turned over. If the community were in German, you would have to translate. That would be the same problem. Only I would then have the advantage. I would have to make the right text out of the text to understand it. Unfortunately, it is so!!!!

    Hi! I hope you do not mind that I have been reading this conversation.

    @Spinnifix I have a great respect for you. You use a translation service, and that takes additional time and effort! I appreciate that you do it. you are funny and helpful and kind. These things can be hard to put into words in any language. Yet I have seen you do it.

    I can imagine how frustrating it must be to lose an entire post just because a few words are in German. I make errors all the time. I have to read my posts 3-5 times sometimes to make sure there are no errors. All I can suggest to you is that you read the posts using the PREVIEW button for German words. The PREVIEW will show you how it will show in the forum. If there is a word that will not translate, use another word until you find an English word that means the same thing. 

    I agree that sometimes we can all be more compassionate about how difficult it is to communicate in a different language, even if we have a translation service. However, I have to say that reading everything you wrote, @Rancid, warmed my heart. I sincerely think you are a great example of someone who is not only compassionate, but also a leader in finding solutions. I have been a member here since at least March and this whole conversation amazed me. I am honored to be called an "expert" with you.  :)

    I hope you both have a wonderful rest of your day.  <3

    To put it in very simple terms:
    If I didn't want others reading what I posted, it would not be on the internet. Or it would have been in a private message. So of course I am happy for you (or anybody else with internet access) to read this. I was surprised that what I wrote meant so much to you. I saw that this was an unresolved problem. I thought that both sides of this story needed to be understood better. So clearly I have achieved my goal.

    I did some research (that means I used Google) and the best translator from German to English is this one:
    But it translates from English to German very badly. Which translator do you use? Maybe you could try that one?

    I guess I am easily moved by every day acts of kindness. It is always nice to see people treating each other with respect. You were being helpful in a unique way. I like to give credit where credit is due. It did mean a lot to me, but simple things often do. What else can I say? 🤷🏻‍♀️🙂

    If there was more kindness in the world and less impatience, then less people would be injured or killed when driving on our roads. It's sad but true.

    Hi! I'll answer yours first. Thank you for your kind and sincere contribution. I like it very much that you have lined up with you. I just wanted to say: we Germans write a lot of words. I also see that in Übersertzen. The English text is then very shrunken. We Germans have words with many meanings. This can be difficult for the reader. One also says: German language - heavy language. Maybe you've heard of it before! Unfortunately, it is so. That's why I can not just exchange the word it fits in English. Please understand it !!! Unfortunately, I am not an English teacher !!! Sorry
