BabelZilla is online, but there is still much work to do.

So please post your suggestions how to organize the board.

Just a notice about the motto: isn't it "Let the l10n localize your world" ?
Could you add some localizations of the forum ?

Anyway, this logo is just a test. If somebody is a good graphic designer, please feel free to send his logo to siteadmin[at]babelzilla[dot]org

We'll evaluate all the masterpieces received and will publish the best ones promoting a poll to choose the official BabelZilla logo biggrin.gif

Great idea. Maybe we can also start a topic for a improved slogan for Babelzilla. Then we can also hold a poll about that?

For the structure of BabelZilla. I think the start made in the forum 'New extensions' is good. Maybe we can make a new category Updated Extensions just a suggested in the MozillaZine-tread.

This category still exists, but has no topics yet, so it's invisible wink.gif

Ok, but we have to start one.. Maybe we want to wait till there is a new version of a locale posted in the New-section?

Just another idea: Do we want to make a difference between extension authors and translators? Maybe we can add a subtitle and for translators also the language code or flag. This will make the difference much clearer.
It would even better to see easily which extensions are translated/created by the person. I don't know if there are mods for IPB which can do this?

BTW, In my profile I added a short description of the l10n-tasks I am doing, but I noticed you can't use bbcode in the interest-section. Can this be changed? Then I can easily add links to some webpages.

MMMhh that is why I cannot post into, I suppose ?
Another thing. I just tried to update an .xpi file, but it seems impossible so I zip it. Considering the xpi will probably be a current attachment, it would be intersting the admins manage to authorize it (if it is possible) but I know there is much to do by now, and I just take the occasion to THANK them both for this beautiful brand new site.

Yes that's right.
I've added xpi as allowed file type.

Could you pls. try to open a topic here for bookmarkshome?
You'll be the moderator there smile.gif

I think the forum used must be one that has the "description" field for individual topics. This could be used to keep track of the languages the extension has been translated to, so an example might look like this:

Yes, I think this will be structure.

As you could read, I asked Goofy to open a topic in "New Extensions".
Once this is done, the topic in "Projects & Requests" could be locked with a link to the new forum.

In this forum all translators could offer their translations.

If you you have better way, just post it smile.gif

Hi !

Some suggestions :
  • When you first come, all you get is the login page. This is really unfriendly, a small description would be welcome.
  • Write a "how-to" internationnalize an extension for authors, because they are often lost (and me too tongue.gif sad.gif ).

Oops, you're right.
I've changed it, so everybody can view the site without login.
Thanks.

And yes, I think we will have some kind of "how-to" smile.gif
