I think it's because there's quite a few bilingual people here. Most people usually speak what they're comfortable with, I find. Whether that's French or English.

It's maybe a good idea, but than we may have most of the posters split onto two separate 'mini' boards. Not sure if that's really what it's all about.

As I said, people should be spea...typing their best language. If someone doesn't understand it, they can use a website to translate it.

I think it's one of the things that makes our board the best, having more than one language here is pretty cool. It's also helped a lot of people improve their french and their english I think.

It was already debated on this board quite a few time since 2002....And it was decided that since HFBoards is in english all the forums should be in english, also it would split the fans here in 2 groups and the threads would be duplicated.....The only thing that would be nice is that there would be a sub-board here but to write about non-hockey subjects....

I suspect JOHNNY V is doubling his 3rd year of primary school for the 37th time...

I've suggested this on many occasions, but it was refused each and every time by a few power-hungry pinko-commie green-blooded anglophone moderators wanting to keep the forums exclusively in English. The same few power-hungry pinko-commie green-blooded anglophone moderators who were busy the rest of the time explaining to me why the Quebec's Law 101 is ill-inspired and discriminating to the poor anglophone communities of the province.

Im not 100% that a sub forum will split fan into 2 group because I think many "visitors" dont subscribe / post because they'rent enough good in english so by having a special french section we'll probably see a few newcomer

I think the board is good as it is. People start threads in french, and people answer to others in french. It's better to have all the discussion on one board.

The idea of having a french "sub-board" (basically a french "lounge") was brought to the attention of HF admins and they decided against it. They made it pretty clear that there was no chance of having a french hockey talk sub board...

Because Montreal Canadiens should not be divided by race, colour of skin, language or length of our members but should all unite on a common front for the greater cause of hating the Boston Bruins.

As long as they tolerate off topic thread in french here i don't think there is a real necessity for a french board.

Ya made me spit coffee all over my computer screen!!!

Now that the fun and games are over.....get back to guarding our Pretzel!!!!!


On the subject on a french sub board, I would hate to see the posters split into two groups but I feel French speaking members should feel more than welcome to start threads/or reply to posts in French.

If the English language was a book, it would be called "French for Dummies"

The other possibility that could be considered, if we want to keep the core of posters of this forum intact, is to make this an all-French forum, a solution that implies that all forum members, be they from PEI, British Columbia or Great Britain itself, would be forced to learn French in three weeks at most, with the use of whips if necessary.

Il a fait BI histoire à Garneau l'année passée, et est en économie à Laval maintenant. Il était dans le journal mais est libéral/droitiste, se dit Straussien. Son père est rédacteur-en-chef du Soleil.

Grand, cheveux bruns, nez québécois normal.

Ha oui! On a joué au hockey ensemble il y a une semaine.

Ce serait exagéré de l'appeler mon ami, par contre, je le rencontre très rarement. On s'entend bien, par contre, et on a des idées communes.

I don't speak french... but I'm betting this has something to do with sheep somehow.

Naaaaaah...; we both loathe the Bruins (although, admittedly, his opinion is irrelevant, considering that he plays with a Leafs jersey). ()

To be honest, I usually wait until a few months (or a few drinks) before I begin talking about sheeps, and the like, y'know. I'm a little, how could I say, shy. Sure, it may have cost me a few great friendships, but it has saved a lot of others, if you see what I mean.
