- The forum owner must moderate the content. A moderator must understand the content of the postings. Without an understanding of the language, we cannot react in case of spam, illegal content or bad habit.
- For each language, we need a moderator. We had been asked to host french and spanish discussion forums, but we do not have a moderator for that.
- A trustworthy moderator would need to commit fully to the task her/himself. In case that a moderator stops working, we would need to close the corresponding forum.
- Because the forum owner cannot speak other languages than english or german, he cannot even recognize weather or not a non/english & non-german - moderator is doing her/his work well.
That means, we cannot host non-english/non-german forums here. But there is a solution for the problem:
You can become a non-english/non-german YaCy forum owner! Start your own forum!
If you run your own forum, then we will put a prominent link here in this section and on the http://yacy.net home page!
