Hallo, my name is Moshik Barak, I'm from Israel.
First, I'm sorry if I opened this post in the wrong forum.
Before two days I have started to translate the SMF system to Hebrew.
I will be happy to receive approval from you to develop an Israeli website to the SMF system.
I have started to rectifying the system to right, and translate the system to Hebrew, I believe that we will end to translate the system more this week.
We want to read to the Hebrew translated system in the name: hxxp:smfheb.com [nonactive], or hxxp:smheb.com [nonactive].
In order to purchase domain and storage and start develop the system in Israel I well be happy to receive approval from you.
Waiting for agreement from you,
Moshik Barak.

Hello Moshik,

Thank you for making your post. As a general rule, we do not support any secondary support sites for SMF. Although several people have spun-off support sites of their own,  we do not officially sanction them.

The reason for this is to maintain a single point of support for our software, and to ensure the integrity of downloads made available for SMF.

Thank you for your ongoing interest in SMF.

Cheers,

Joseph

i agree with Joseph.
but i dont agree that there shouldnt be other sites for SMF.

official support is well here and not other sites needed.
maybe there either shouldnt be other official sites but what about "smf friend" sites ?

what about being respectfull to ideas / opinions first? ;)
i didnt say there shouldnt be other sites about SMF.
but they must be well organized to fix the bugs / errors, mistakes and to see the other opinions and ideas and to add more features... shortly, to improve.

i dont see something wrong about your opnion. ( just like in the example of ipb that you gave )
please look above my post again.
what i say, there shouldnt be a support forum out of here. and the new site shouldnt be labeled official. as SMF developers wont be the controllers of the new site (as they dont have to, because they dont have more than 24 hours a day) otherwise, people will blame simplemachines if anything goes wrong. (this is just a reason as there are many others)

Hello koko,

You are free to start an SMF Hebrew site but keep in mind that it won't be sanctioned official as told by Joseph and you won't be allowed to redistrubute any of the SMF files but you are free to start a support site of your own as I have stated,

Ok means i can realase SMF into hebrew on my own site, and give support.
Thank you very much.

It means you can start a hebrew support site, although you won't be able to offer downloads of SMF. As per the license agreement, it cannot be redistributed without permission.

You can post downloads of language packages but NO combination of SMF + integrated language package!

Benny Elgazar

I know what u talking about but there is alot of things that u must edit like from left to right on some files, that means i have to edit some files.

Ben_S

Left to right is defined in the language files isn't it?

Im currently using 1.1RC1 in an Israeli website.

The RTL bugs are simply too annoying. I had to edit many themes files in order that the forum will be usable. You cant expect from a novice users to download SMF package, then hebrew, and then start search-and-replace RTL problems.

I even tried to make a RTL mod.
http://mods.simplemachines.org/index.php?mod=181
It's working good at 1.0.5, but again, u cant expect from users that just want a working forum to do that.

Most of the users will see that the forums have many RTL problems and will decide to move back to phpbb, which have redistribution for Hebrew and good support.

Hebrew and Arabic are problematic languages because of the rtl, we need some kind of option to redistribute


Benny Elgazar

Right, and at this moment i start i start translate the system from the begining, the Hebrew translation here not so good, dont like him.
and I search a crew now. I have a host.

Thank you very much for the information!
