It is easy to be misunderstood when communicating on the Scouting forums. It takes two to communicate. One can be courteous and improve communications by:
- Writer: I write this
- Reader: I understand you mean this
- Writer: Yes that is what I meant / No, I meant.
- Reader responds:
4a. Reader If yes: “Got it” (I understand now)
4b. Reader: If no: I understand you mean
If no, repeat starting at 2.
- Use double quotes around text. - Maybe,?
- Use “translate=no” ). - Maybe,?
Entering American English with the other language in between double quotes appears to be the answer.
The Scouting forums computer program assumes you are using English (language code “en”) with the locale not defined, I believe the forum pages shoul be codec as using American English (language code “en-US”)
The “translate=no” option appears to be an old HTML draft recommendation.
