LOL, and kONGO is Swedish. English is perhaps his 4th language, eh, kONGO? But, yes, those of us born English speakers, at least we should try to use it in some reasonable fashion as best we can. My family is Swiss by heritage, and my first cousin spoke at least 7 languages fluently that I rcall: Switzerdeutsch, German, French, English, Italian, Russian and Chinese (Mandarin).

And to all our other non-English native born speakers, just do the best you can, and someone here will help out. If nothing else works, please feel free to use your native language, and someone here will help translate it for us.

Edit: Oops, I forgot Spanish and Latin. So that makes 9 I guess.

Pcb, I think it isn't hard to spot who's trying to purposely speak english in-properly, and those are struggling because it's not native to them.

Pcb, you bring up a good point. Sometimes speaking in your native language may work if your quite new to English or never learned it. A translator can get the facts wrong, and if were dealing with computers it can be really difficult to help I think if the information is incorrect or mixed up.

Say what?

I think I need one of the official ABX translators to . . . uh . . . translate.

While they are at it, they can translate "swtmyhattijhlic" as well.

There's a Portugese girl in my class I have a crush on

Edit :: Haha, I used the word crush with a meaning that is not in native English. Shame on me!

WTG dude keep it up
and you need a real member who knows that language so that he or she can properly translate the meaning otherwise the in built translator sometimes conveys some different meaning

A. Go to the USER CP button at the top, and from in there click the edit options link. The bottom contains a Change Avatar button. Click that and it will give you a dialog to let you upload a file from your computer.
I feel like a newbie all over again but I'm not getting the "Change Avatar" button. I can remove it and I can tell the site not to use it, but I can't upload a new one?
