if the goal is to provide the pre-eminent location for all things technical Ethereum then surely it is incumbent on 'us' to devise a method for non English speakers rather than a 'carte blanche' English only...

..here are the Top 10 world speakers in M and % of world population

1 Mandarin 935 (955) 14.1%
2 Spanish 390 (405) 5.85%
3 English 365 (360) 5.52%
4 Hindi 295[3] (310)[4] 4.46%
5 Arabic 280 (295) 4.23%
6 Portuguese 205 (215) 3.08%
7 Bengali 200 (205) 3.05%
8 Russian 160 (155) 2.42%
9 Japanese 125 (125) 1.92%
10 Punjabi 95 (100) 1.44%

It follows then we should (over time) add moderators who are multi lingual or even mono lingual who can moderate / answer in one of the Top 10 world languages.

  • This is a general problem with stackoverflow and the solution has been to create language specific sites, e.g. pt.stackoverflow.com. Unfortunately I can't see many other sites having enough users to sustain language specific versions. – paulmorriss Feb 29 '16 at 13:31

    This suggestion is silly. Assuming that most people only speak one or two of those languages and questions would be evenly spread, people would only be able to even understand 10-20% of the content. I'd not be interested in using a page where I can't even understand 80-90% of the content. It follows then that we focus on collecting content in one language. And instead of looking at the number of native speakers, we look at the total number of speakers, excluding Chinese English is the most widely used language. – Murch Mar 2 '16 at 8:01
  • This assumption is silly.. assuming the users are per the number of native speakers or the total number of speakers it would follow then that the number of questions would be weighted accordingly..i.e. the highest % would be English – Donnelly Mar 22 '16 at 23:37
