Although you have pages of volunteers now, I'll just say I'm willing, too. I'm on the site daily.

Unfortunately I only read English fluently.

I might as well throw my hat into the ring, as I am a zealous downloader of files here on BGG and interested in approving content. I only know English, so I am at a disadvantage there. Also, do we have any written standards on how BGG verifies copyright compliance?

Dale, I would love to help! As it seems that you have hundreds of volunteers for English, I submit my services for Romanian language (although I know it isn't one of the main languages here on the Geek).

Cheers,
Alex

Surely it will take more than 10 minutes to check properly, and more importantly, how thoroughly can we /must we check for things like copyright infringement, that does not sound like a trivial task since any file could potentially include snippets from a rulebook or component, that could take a long, long time to track down, no?

I'm in. Though I'm an English speaker/reader only.

4 years of Latin in high school won't be much help in reviewing files. Neither will 3 years of Russian in college (and not having used it any since then).

I might be interested in helping out. If you still need people I can try it, but if I can't make it work properly I may need to bow out.

EDIT: I have English and functional French.

You have my axe.

But at 7 pages in, I doubt you'll need me.

Also willing to help. If you need more multi-language mods, let me know:

I'm almost daily on BGG.
My native tongue is Dutch, I speak French and English and have a good understanding of German.
10 minutes a day isn't a problem.

I can certainly commit to assisting daily. Iā€™m on BGG a lot and I know a little Spanish. Thanks for your devotion to doing this over the last year Dale. That must have taken a lot of work.

Well, you're welcome.
You're also welcome for the 3-ish years before that
(I've sadly been at this file thing for awhile now!)

Anyways, at this point, I think there are enough volunteers -- I'm going to take this off the front page and start the process of choosing the new minions.

I'll be back in a few days with the results.
Thanks again to everyone for volunteering

Dale

Again, thanks to everyone for volunteering their time and abilities!

It looks like BGG will start with five new file moderators in the next week or so:

Ponton
spearjr
Narl
JackFlash
HilkMAN


I'll see how the work goes with our newest file moderators, and if we still need more help, I will once again select names from those who volunteered on this list!

Thanks
Dale
