    question for you. Would it make sense to have an Asian board where Asian alphabets can't be used? I checked and Snowboards is not meant to support Asian letters.
    Care to try?

    Let me understand this. Oh it's about Language reasons, huh? It's for people who don't speak English right??? Not about Asian folks get together in one, Same place.

    Language certainly is an issue, but that does not mean there won't be any Forums dedicated to fans in Asia. However, you must understand that in this instance, the forums will not be as effective as they would be if they supported the typeset necessary for our Asian brethren to communicate effectively. Furthermore, I would imagine we would need a slew of different typsets to provide for the many, many different dialects in Asian countries. The same can be said for all non-English areas.

    I agree that there should be an Asian Region. Could you make some suggestions on how they could be set up? Thanks!

    Even though asian characters are not supported, Japanese can be romanized and written in an English alphabet and still be understood by Japanese speakers.
