Per chi interessato ad un terreno da gioco che sia tanto realistico quanto pratico da riporre e trasportare vi invito nel mio blog per vedere questi miei prodotti!

In English please, on the Terrain and Scenics board.

Italian is fine, no need to be exclusively English. He's already posted the same news in English.

no need to be exclusively English. He's already posted the same news in English.

And how am I supposed to know that, since I do not understand Italian?
The two post titles (one in English and one in Italian) do not look like they are the same subject.
If he has already posted in English on the Terrain and Scenics board then why crosspost his Italian version?
The OP at least had the courtesy to post in English on a general board and I'd have been quite happy with that but then you crossposted the Italian and confused the issue.
I have not seen any foreign language on the general boards in a very long time.

bit.ly/tmSazL ?

all snark aside, it's a minor annoyance. I have a plugin for chrome that automatically translates foreign languages on mouseover

Sorry … I made ​​a mistake! :-)

No need to apologise, my friend, it wasn't your fault. I still don't see why the Editor decided to crosspost your Italian message to the Terrain and Scenics board when you had already posted an English language version.

I don't think you made a mistake. If you want to reach Italian-speaking customers with text that is comfortable for them, why should you not post it in Italian as well? And in an international world, why should I expect my own educational deficiencies to be catered to?

He did, quite rightly, on the Italian Wargaming board.
It was the Editor that crossposted it from the Italian board to the Terrain and Scenics board.
