Re: multilingual forum

The main issue with the translator program is that you lose a lot of nuance (or even get the flat-out wrong translation at times) that way. What made me think of a user-controlled area was the site http://boardgamegeek.com/ , which has a system where the users moderate all image/list/video links tha...

Re: History of Tessellations
