o/ lye, thanks for having such a well formatted api. I used it as a template for my own api for learning purposes

there's a leftover in the german translation which doesn't exist in english
lol and that GW1 map in the scarlet video
(i mean, not that its something new to me, but uhh i thought this store was not one of these...)
first i read that they give you 2000 gem keys (aka bl keys) for 20 eur
that'd be... impressive actually

my study associations website has multilang too, every now and then we receive an email cursing that our website is "Dutch", because someone found an obscure page somewhere that didn't have {% trans %} tags
multilang is one of those things you need to think of from the start
yeah

our site was made in 2007, multilang added around 2013 or so
and we are ever since finding untranslated strings
what we did in our mmo was to crowdsource it
we created a website through which some players we validated beforehand could work on translations

oh our translate infra is great
we just have quite a lot to translate for the volunteers we are
if they wanted a certain language supported, they banded together and did it :)
yeah, no translation was complete on our end either :D

Isn't there a website for crowdsource translation?

django has great translation support
@Eearslya not sure there was one back in 2005-6 :)

@windwarrior
Oct 11 2017 16:49 UTC
even mojang did this
minecraft is translated by volunteers I think
it works if you have an enthusiastic playerbase

@Archomeda
Oct 11 2017 16:50 UTC
yeah, just like valve + steam

I remember there was a whole repo of some sort for minecraft

@Archomeda
Oct 11 2017 16:50 UTC
but screw the dutch translation of steam -_-
there are so many mistakes
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Oct 11 2017 16:50 UTC
translation is quite the challenge
for example, we had the dutch word "Publiek" without context in translations. Depending on the context, it could either mean "audience", or "public"
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 11 2017 16:51 UTC
yeah
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Oct 11 2017 16:52 UTC
and it might even be used in both ways
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 11 2017 16:52 UTC
i'm mostly annoyed by the words in our language that are combined from 2 or more words
we write them as one word in dutch, but in english you still write them separately
and like 80%+ of the dutch people don't even understand it
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Oct 11 2017 16:52 UTC
which makes stuff like gettext quite bad, because it assumes that a single string has one translation regardless of context
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 11 2017 16:53 UTC
make your words to translate less generic :P
imo it's bad to use a translated word in more than one place
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Oct 11 2017 17:01 UTC
well, I dont know how it works in the GW2 client
also, I play on english
so I dont often have translation issues :P
Archomeda

"F", or "Praise Joko" or "Bad anet"
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 11 2017 18:26 UTC
Praise Joko!
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Oct 11 2017 18:27 UTC
wait is Joko a spoiler?
in that case, sorry
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 11 2017 18:29 UTC

Joko is a meme

I got in without too much issue
Guilds are dead tho
"Guild data is taking a long time to load. This might indicate an underlying server or connectivity issue."
correction: some guilds are dead, others are zombies
my "main" guild has no members anymore, some other guilds have members but talking says that no one hears you

"futter anbieten" is when you offer food to an animal
"Essen anbieten" would be the right term

was disappointed to find out webpack doesn't support bundling to es-modules (commonjs only)
might have to move to rollup..
