what about a greek section ?

As far as I know Frihost stopped adding language forums a very long time ago. Refer Bondings' thread of what not to suggest:

Not to mention there is already too many forums now that adding another would just make the site even worse.

I seriously doubt whether a Greek forum can or will be added in the near future. I do feel some are misinterpreting Bondings' rule on new forums however. Having multiple language forums has been a feature of Frihost from the early days, and I don't believe Bondings intended to limit the number of languages having forums.

I do believe that new language forums are hard to add for practical reasons. The site needs a moderator who is well-known and trusted on Frihost, and is fluent in both English and the target language. Also, if there aren't enough quality posters to make the forum an asset to the site, it shouldn't be added.

If there is enough interest, perhaps someone with a site using a specific language could provide a forum in that language and moderate it. That way all Frihost members who knew that language would know a Frihost-related place to post. I doubt if this would ever lead to an official forum on Frihost, but it's not impossible.

I've thought about the alternative of a crude moderation of a forum using Google translate or some such tool, but it would probably be too much work and the results would be poor.

I took this from a post by Bondings and it was pretty specific:

Quote:
A list of things you shouldn't suggest (because we will never add them anyway or are already working on it):
1) Adding subforums to this forum.
2) Adding other language forums. It's more than enough for now and I won't add new ones.

I've done a little of this when I spot something that looks suspicious in one of the language forums. It really is quite crude, and is frowned upon.
