Since not all the buttons and links are getting translated even after switching the board language to english, some poeple that don't speak german might have a problem with that. Here are some of the translations:
Posting a thread:
When you are inside a forum and have a list of all the threads, hit (new topic) to create your own topic in that forum.
Posting a reply:
When inside a thread, hit (Reply) to leave a posting in that topic.
If the button looks like this: , the topic is closed by a moderator and can not be replied to anymore. If there is urgent need that this topic is opened again, please send a PM to the responsible moderator.
Performing actions on postings:
In the lower right of each posting, you have the following buttons:
(PM, Private Message): Send a private message to the user who wrote that posting.
(Edit): Edit that posting. You can only use this function on your own replies. Very useful to prevent double-postings.
(Quote): Quote this posting in a new reply. Clicking this will do the same as the Reply-button, but it will add the other user's posting in
-tags, so other users know who your reply is referring to. Please always reduce the quote to its core sentences, though.
Performing actions on PMs:
(Forward): Forward this message to another user.
(Reply): Reply to this message to the same user. The original message will be kept in-tags.
This should cover the most important buttons. Remember that you can always hover your mouse over a button for some time to see its function, even in english.
Now some links, especially those in the user's menu at the very top of every site:
Spielhalle (gambling hall, Premium Users only): A place with hundreds of cool games. Fight for the High Scores with other people from the forums.
Datenbank (database): A place where a lot of useful little programs, books and tools are available for you to download.
Neue Themen (new topics): A list to see the newest threads thoughout the board.
Kontakte (contacts): An overview of all your friends and a quick way to check their status or write PMs.
Notizen (notes, Premium Users only): A little personal textbox where you can quickly leave some notes, whatever it be.
We hope that helps a bit to get started here.
Now enjoy your stay!
