I thought this would be a good moment to actually respond here.
Yes, we would prefer all messages in a non language specific section to be posted in English. This to facilitate most users in understanding the post. However: the largest part of our community is Dutch, followed by English and German users. All these people tend to prefer posting in their own language and no, I absolutely do not blame them. Unfortunately 2/3 of these groups is a language the other one won't understand.
As a Dutch company, we can obviously respond in Dutch and even German (at least for me personally) is no issue.
We won't strictly enforce a language as that would be very user unfriendly. But I do understand the frustration of not being able to read everything, sorry for that @Finn-Gunnar-Frostad!
I cannot speak for the community but as MyRoute-app (and myself personally) we will communicate all important stuff on the forum in English. The announcement section is a great example of this: https://forum.myrouteapp.com/category/1/announcements
I would love to stimulate everybody to use English but there isn't a lot I can do as strictly enforcing a language will result in a very suboptimal situation and probably even in the end of an active forum.
At least this community self service part, will always be in english https://forum.myrouteapp.com/category/11/en-forum-self-service and the same goes for all MRA communication.
Thanks for bringing up this topic @Finn-Gunnar-Frostad 🙂
