Foreign languages



  • Am I meant to be receiving topics posted in other languages on this forum despite not being in that language's group?

    As far as I am aware, my profile says I am part of the 'Language EN' group only but I constantly get topics written in Arabic, Dutch, Italian and Turkish.

    @gary-gomes Hi,
    Go into the main forum and click on the "not watching" button and select ignoring. But if you want to ignore some specific topic you have to select each topic one after the other and ignore them just as above.



  • I don't want to stop watching particular categories, I just thought topics and posts were organised into their own languages and you had to be a part of that language group to see them. Make sense?

    If that's the only fix then I guess I can cope with selecting every single non-English topic and mark them as read.

    Each Language forum is visible to all managers but the one you joined first is the one stated on your forum account, and in order to stop seeing notifications/posts from them you have to ignore the category or the topic yourself.
    Also, all posts appear on the forum and category they are posted regardless of the language used. So if someone uses another language in the English forum so it'll appear.
