A new forum for a given language (or language pair) will most likely be created when ALL of the following conditions are met: 1) There is a steady flow of serious discussions in the Other Languages forum demonstrating consistent interest in and commitment to the language (or pair) in question. 2) Many active users - who are not just native speakers discussing their own language - are frequently submitting a fairly large number of posts about the language (or pair) on a regular basis. 3) We have one or more good moderator candidates who meet(s) the requirements specified here. WR will not create a language forum under these circumstances: A) In the hope or the expectation that a forum will create activity. B) As a result of multiple requests for a forum here in Comments and Suggestions. Again, when there is enough existing traffic that demonstrates a serious interest in a particular language or pair, Mike Kellogg (WR administrator) may choose to create a new forum.
