That's the thing. I'm not sure.

<a href="http://www.fordeurope.net" target="_blank">FordEurope.net</a> already has a forum. Although its an established site, there aren't very many posts there. I know that there are tons of Ford fans in Europe... when it comes to modifying cars over there only VWs are more popular.

I was in talks with the owner of Fordeurope and would like to discuss things further with him, but I have misplaced his email address. Actually I reformated my system and did not back up my mail. DOH.

I would be interested in setting up a foriegn area on the board for the European sections. Only issues that i would see is the Language barriers. ANy thoughts on this I am open for.

I can create seperate areas for Germans and French and what not with the associated language buttons and all. it is just a matter of finding out what languages are gonna be needed.


Always open for new ideas.......


Speak up guys. WE got you the links pages. I am working on a chat program...ie IRC that is intergrated into the forum itself. I can get Newsgroups...list servers... what do ya'll want.


LunaticSS :evil: :wink2: :p :) ;)

Language barrier can be a problem but English is widely spoken in Europe. I can't speak for everyone though but in Portugal you are required to study two of the following three languages throughout secondary school: English, French or German. Almost everyone in Portugal that is my age (24) can speak, write and read English to the point where they can communicate well.

I can read and write in French and Spanish but I'm horrible at German. When communicating in German, I usually use a translation tool like the one available at <a href="http://translate.lycos.com" target="_blank">Lycos</a>. Just copy and paste, select the language to translate to and that's it. Many times, the output is not gramatically correct but you're still able to communicate.

The owner of FordEurope.net can be contacted at [email protected] I think.
