Re: And we're back again, better than ever!

So I have solved the problem with my own log, but there is bound to be damaged pictures in other threads, and I doubt that they can be replaced as easily.. It would seem that the images in the early part of my log are gone. For example here: http://forum.language-learners.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&...

Re: The blog is back, too (but it needs love!)

I've just cleaned up the Spanish profile a bit, and added tables of contents to all the other profiles. There are still about 3 profiles that need substantial formatting improvements: They appear to have been passed through some combination of BBCode, Word docs, WordPress HTML and Markdown. Hey ever...

Re: The blog is back, too (but it needs love!)

I'm stuck in a waiting room with no WiFi, so I can't do real work. So while waiting, I'm fixing the formatting of the awesome Finnish profile by Chung (with help from other students of Finnish). Please don't start work on any major overhauls until I say I'm done. :-) OK, it was a long wait, and I f...

Re: And we're back again, better than ever!

Thanks for getting the forum back on its feet. I can see that some of the pictures have been damaged, but apart from that it doesn't seem that we have lost anything much. And hopefully we may now even avoid some of the delays that plagued the forum in its previous location. Please try reloading the...

Re: Can't access forum from Chrome

I had something similar happen on Sunday (or was it Monday?) using Chrome. It was after you'd taken the site down the first time and put it back, and I couldn't access it from Safari (iPad) or Firefox (PC). I just got your message about DNS-whatever-it-was. When I tried accessing the site from Chro...

Re: Idiomatic Spanish - best resources?

Two things I don't want to sound like: a textbook, or a sad grandfather trying to sound hip for the youngsters haha! Sadly, as a language learner, you can't avoid this completely. :-/ I find the best strategy to minimize the damage is to pretend that you're saying ridiculous things deliberately . F...

Re: Idiomatic Spanish - best resources?

A prime example is "don't get me started". I'd love to be able to say that in Spanish, but I just know that a literal translation would be clunky and wrong in Spanish... right? Welcome to the forum! And yes, your intuition is right. Idiomatic English phrases don't translate well to other ...

Re: The blog is back, too (but it needs love!)

That's a good idea. If you can figure out these technical details , I'll happily accept a pull request. :-) I see what you did there ;) I'll take a look... Yes, this is all part of my evil master plan to encourage other people to do the hard work, while I sit in the French Antilles and drink fruity...

Re: The blog is back, too (but it needs love!)

Good stuff! :D The Language Profiles link doesn't seem to work though? (it points to the FAQ). Found my mistake. Thank you. Could there be some kind of "edit" link on the site to take us to the right place on github? That's a good idea. If you can figure out these technical details , I'll...
