      READ THIS before posting

      Please READ THIS before asking Before posting for help on this forum, please consider checking the Wiki FAQ topics, since most of the usual problems which users usually encounter are already answered in there. However, if you cannot find your answer in there, then read the next lines before you make your post. The following basic information is Essential, in order to be able to help you with any concern/question. Please, be sure to provide all the information said below, each time that you expose a new topic. 1) What version of BitComet are you using? 2) What type of Internet connection do you have (3G , ADSL 3 Mbs, Optical Fiber, etc.)? If you are using WWAN or any type of connection that uses a cellular type of long distance wireless (not including your own personal Wi-Fi network) then be sure to mention this first. 3) Do you have a modem (Make and Model required)? Do you use a router (Make and Model required)? If so, have you forwarded your port? Do you have any VoIP or telephone devices connected? 4) If you have more than one router, be sure to mention the make and model of both devices, how are they connected (i.e. in which connector of both devices is the network cable plugged) and which one of the devices is connected to or is the modem. Also, if you have more than one computer make sure to mention in this case, to which router is every one of them connected. 5) What version of Windows, Firewall and Antivirus do you use? Is your Windows 32 bit or 64 bit? 6) Are you using any type of IP filtering or protection software like Peerblock or ProtoWall? 7) If you are asking about a specific torrent or file that you have downloaded, make sure that you include the complete torrent name, as well as the complete names of the files and their respective extensions/formats (e.g.: .rar, .wma, .bin, .cue, etc.). 8) For speed-related issues, please run various speed tests at a site such as speedtest.net (make sure that no other computer is using your Internet connection and that all other programs - including BitComet - are closed, during the tests). Include the results, along with the settings that you are presently using, in your post, so that we may review and offer suggestions to improve its performance. The lack of said information will result, as direct consequence, in your post being ignored and/or deleted, leaving way to a clean and tidy forum, for those who follow the rules. Please, make sure that the post's title gives an indication of the problem ("Help!" or "I Have a Problem" are not good indicators...). Remember to include the maximum amount of detailed information (speed test results, the settings that you're using, which Tutorial/s you have followed, etc.) possible - the more, the better. Thank you for your cooperation. Regards. The BitComet Team

      Has your post been answered?

      There are many reasons why posts are not answered. 1. Our forum is staffed by professionals who volunteer their time to help the file sharing community. We are not obligated to help anyone, but if you take the time to learn, and follow the rules, you will find us all very willing to help you. 2. If you don't review the rules for submitting support request, then you can expect either no reply, or a reply instructing you to read the rules. Such topics only waste our time, and we help members who read the rules first. 3. We all have our working schedule, as well as other activities that consume our time, and we help out here as much as time allows, so if you did not receive an answer to your topic, make sure you provided the required information, and if necessary, you may send me a PM and I will review the topic. Some forums have a "READ THIS before posting" announcement. This takes 30 seconds to read, so there is no excuse for not providing the information we need to help you. Please also understand, this is not "all" the information we may need, its simply the absolute minimum info needed to even begin to assist you. Sincerely, The BitComet Team

Translators Wanted in forum

Recommended Posts

As you can see we have added a Spanish and French forum here.

I would like to add more sections as well. Each will require translators to moderate the forum, and translate requests for support so that our support team can reply.

A basic knowledge of bit torrent usage is helpful, but not required.

A commitment to check on the posts on a daily basis (if possible) is required

Here is an opportunity to contribute to the file sharing community by creating a forum in your language

Hi,

It has been some time since we expanded our international forum, as this topic was posted in 2006. Since then the French forum has pretty much failed, although we have kept it in hopes that it could be revived if proper staff and translators become available. Our Spanish and Romanian sections have few staff members, but since we don't get a lot of traffic there, we have been doing ok.

I'm not against the idea of expanding to support more languages, but it would require a commitment from someone fluent in both English and the Language of the forum. This person would also need to check the forum at least daily and be willing to translate all support requests into English for our support team to review. Beside knowledge of languages, understanding computer and bittorrent terms in both languages is a must, because they usually don't translate literally.

If your serious about opening a dutch forum here, we will consider it, but I suspect it will get little or no traffic at all, at least in the beginning, so I'd need someone who is content to stay here long term and not lose interest if there is nothing to do.

If your wanting to pursue this, please message "Cassie", she has been serving as our administrator of international forums and is best qualified to evaluate your language skills, then we'll go from there.

A language moderator also needs to play some role in driving traffic in that language to the site. We normally have no contact with the universe of sites in other languages, and no real way to effectively communicate that we support that language. so it is largely up to the language mods to spread that word among their communities.

You can read my reply above. I'm not against adding more language sections, but before we are going to consider that, we would want to see some commitment from regular members here that have made an effort to be helpful over a reasonable period of time. We would like to get to know a person, and see that they are able and qualified to help users in English, only then will we consider opening our forum to additional languages, but with the right staff members, it would be a nice addition to add many more popular languages, and to restaff the French section that has been stagnant for a couple years.

So far, I haven't seen any Russian traffic in the forum.

As I said in a previous message, a forum translator also has a role in driving traffic to the forum -- that means getting the word out that this particular language is supported now, and getting speakers of it to come here with their questions and issues. Why would the forum bother to have a Russian translator when there's never any Russian-language traffic for him to translate?

You'd need to be in a position to say, "There's a lot of people who WOULD use this forum if they could get help here in Russian. I know because they all talk on these other Russian forums and ask questions about BitComet (or Cometbird or MPCStar) and can't get good answers. If you had a Russian forum, they'd all come here."

Людей, которые будут использовать этот форум, если смогут получить помощь здесь на русском языке, в том числе и по вопросам о BitComet (или Cometbird или MPCStar), достаточно много. Если включить веточку на Российский Форум, число желающих непременно возрастёт и многие смогут получать развёрнутые ответы именно здесь... (это очевидно, но заинтересована ли в этом администрация. <?>) :(

That was exactly our thinking about the French forum, and we have had it set up with a couple of different moderators, through the years. When they left, poor Cassie had to cover both the Spanish and French forums, which was too much for one person. We ended up closing the French forum.

It's all very well to claim that "if you build it, they will come", but this has not been our experience. A language moderator needs to have some ability to drive foreign-language traffic to this site, to get the word out to bittorrent sites using that language, that help is now available here. This is in addition to having the confidence of the support team, that the person can handle support mentally, and will reliably be here to do the job.

Note that we do not insist on technological experience, computer, network or bittorrent expertise. We do expect a moderator to be able to converse properly in both languages ABOUT these subjects. We can supply the technological expertise, we just need it translated correctly and timely.

It would be nice to have a russian forum, with qualified staff to moderate it I'd be willing to make it, but I'd need to see some commitment from the members who wish to do the translating.

Hey you need Indonesian translator :)

here im ready for it !

You are welcome to help members in the forum, in time if we see some traffic from indonesian members, we could consider making a forum for them. This goes for pretty much any language. We've had french and romanian, but had to stop offering support due to lack of dedicated staff.
