OK, let's see how this stupid idea works. Let's build a Tower of Babel. The rules are:

1. Anyone may post

2. Your post must be in only one language

3. Your post may NOT be in any of the three preceding languages used in the thread.
Clarification on rule 3:
(a) We have posts in English, French, German... you may not post in English, French or German.
(b) Due to simultaneous posting or incompetence, we have posts in Dutch, Spanish, English, English... you may not post in English, Dutch or Spanish, as what matters is the previous three languages, not the previous 3 posts.

4. Chat about whatever you like, maybe games or something.

5. But it would be a really good idea if you post in a new language for the first time in the thread that you explain these rules.

6. Have fun, be creative, be nice.

Merci tous le monde. Je suis un peu deçu que jusqu'ici il n'y a pas de traductions des règles. Eh donc, moi, je le ferai.

Voyons comment fonctionner cette idée imbecile. Bâtissons une Tour de Babel!

Voice les règles:

1. N'importe qui peut poster.

2. Chaque post doit être dans une seule langue.

3. Ton post NE DOIT PAS être dans aucune des trois langues precedemments dans le fil. Precisions:
(a) Si nous avons des posts en Anglais, Français, Allemand... to ne dois pas poster en Anglais ni Français ni Allemand.
(b) A cause de posts simultanés ou la nullité, nous avons des posts en Hollandais, Espagnol, Anglais, Anglais... tu ne dois pas poster en Anglais ni en Hollandais ni en Espagnol. Ceux qui importe ce sont les trois languages precedemments, pas les 3 posts.

4. Parles a n'importe quoi qui te plaît, les jeux, peut-être.

5. Mais si tu postes dans une nouvelle langue, elle serait une bonne idée d'inclure une traduction des règles.

6. Amuse-toi, sois créatif, sois gentil.

I think we should avoid translation tools to make our own posts or that would have been way to easy (shake why didn't I think to do that before I went to all the work)

1. Kuka tahansa voi lähettää

2. Sinun viestisi on vain yhdellä kielellä

3. Sinun viestisi ei ehkä ole mikä tahansa kolmen edellisen kieliä käytetään säiettä.
4. Chatti mitä haluat, ehkä pelejä tai jotain.

5. Mutta olisi todella hyvä idea, jos lähetät uuden kielen ensimmäistä kertaa lanka, joka selittää näitä sääntöjä.

6. Hauskaa, olla luova, olla kiva. (Finnish)

When I heard the learn’d astronomer; When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me; When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them; When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with
badge
much applause in the lecture-room, How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick; Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself, In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars. W.W.
