Agree that the feeling on this site is that nothing happens ! It used to be many group activities announced such as our group of photographers ACFP was announcing here monthly meetings and activities. But on each event announced, many people ticked the "i will be there" with NOT EVEN 1% of people really showing up at the event !
Result : we stopped to announce here : waste of time !
so he left this site to us and never update anything any more?
foreigners are valuable group, their appearance in website mean the level of the website is higher than other chinese sites in fashion and trend and entertainment life.
this site did good job before, and did collect many foreign members, and this attracts more chinese to come here and talk with these people in many purpose, like language, making friends, learning new things, and starting a relationship.
but what happened now? i still think this site has many valuable resources worth to be developed, the mod really needs to re think and re start a new plan for this site.
(continued) ... you wrote "foreigners are valuable group, their appearance in website mean the level of the website is higher than other chinese sites in fashion and trend and entertainment life." ... I cannot help but laugh ... sorry ...
> The USA crowd began openly state this was their website
Your friendly neighborhood troll patrol has been quite diligent in policing even the slightest implication that this site is for Americans or even English-speaking foreigners. Because reasons totally unrelated to 炮女.
U MAD 'cuz your ersatz anglophilia gains even less traction than its cross-Atlantic counterpart.
They're your words now because you cannot into proper punctuation.
You'd have a tough time finding a single thread in which someone told a Chinese user to post in English where I didn't scold the English speaker for rudeness, cultural imperialism, or even just inferior English writing ability. And yes, it's always laowai who are barely literate in English who think that the site should cater to them.
The archaic Chinese used in Peking Opera is tougher for modern folks to understand than Shakespearean English is for the average American. And that's to say nothing for the sophisticated hand gestures which are crucial for understanding.
It's an oriental mystery, Jaris. You wouldn't understand.
> chinese learn it in shool a lot and they understand it.
Chinese learn Marxism in school a lot. Does the Average Zhou understand dialectic materialism?
Chinese learn maths in school a lot. Can the NBS correctly distinguish between annual averages and year-on-year figures?
Peking Opera confuses the shit out of even my older colleagues.
We used to have a lot of Chinese language threads on WLIB, and they were awesome even for illiterate cultural imperialists like me who just want to learn pithy Chinese sayings to include in their already incomprehensible English rants. Such as 洗洗睡吧, which is the 文明 thing to do when 装屄 native English speakers are talking over everyone else's heads.
Of course, that was more articulately expressed in my reply to Jaris that 听懂中文 is not a sufficient condition for understanding Peking Opera. I said "The archaic Chinese used in Peking Opera." Not traditional Chinese characters, not ancient Chinese, not seal script, not fucking oracle bones, not any of the shit you copied off your classmates in school. Go back to Worst Korea.
"x cannot into y" is a fairly well-known Internet
snowclone originating with the
polandball meme on the 4chan /int/ernational board. Because polandball cannot into space, countryballs cannot into proper English.
(continued) ... I watched it via Weibo last night, it is not too bad, and I think the 3D effect will be far better than Avatar ... but if you meant that the sequels might not be as good, then that's something we will have to live with as audience ...
@black dynamite, i just checked her profile and disappointed as no pictures in her page. weliveinbeijng.com should ask people at least upload 3 pictures, otherwise he can't check other people's pictures.
