Separate language upload forums?

There are almost as many German language uploads on the mobipocket upload forum as there are English language uploads. I accept without question that German readers are entitled to have German language uploads, but would it not be possible to put them into a separate forum or sub forum so that people who do not read German do not have to search the list for English uploads?

Regards, Alex

Hi Alex,

A major development of the book uploads system is "in the works"; this is one of the issues that it is intended to address.

For some reason the following quote seems appropriate at this point:

"...there’s only two kinds of stamps: English stamps in sets at the beginning of the album, and foreign stamps all mixed at the other end. Any Gibbon could tell you that."
-- Michael Flanders

But humour to one side, perhaps it would be a good idea to have some way of properly tagging uploads with the main language of the book. Perhaps another tag like the current prefix tags? So we could find, say, all science fiction in French?

Well, in fact almost all german book uploads use the existing tag-system and are tagged with "german" and/or "deutsch" beside of the "german" within the title. Unfortunately most of the english books aren't. So you can search successfully for "german Science Fiction" but not for "english Science Fiction". The tagging just helps our german users at the moment.

Thanks, Harry. I also like the suggestion that all books be tagged with their language, and hope that will be considered also.

Regards, Alex
