Hi J.Luiz!

Isn't Brazilian Portuguese basically the same as the Portuguese spoken in Portugal? I know some of my family members are from Brasil and they went to Portugal recently. They said that it was difficult to pick up on the accent and some words used in Portugal were different. But they likened the two forms of Portuguese to the difference between Castilian Spanish and Mexican or Cuban Spanish or the English spoken in England vs. American or Australian English.

We don't have Mexican Spanish or American English listed because they're the same languages as the original.

But we don't have Portuguese listed as an alt language anymore Mac. I know we use to have it, but don't really know why it was taken off?

Oh, for like contributing foreign summaries? I assume it was taken off because Murdock left. Without him, there's no one else to proofread the Portuguese contributions.

Lol yeah, I should have mentioned that. Maybe not the appropriated thread for this discussion either
Jluizsd wants to contribute Portuguese summaries, and is suggesting for it to be included in the database. I also thought that Portuguese was taken off because of Murdock had left, but then I remembered/thought that there were more staff members who fluently spoke Portuguese and therefor thought this was in error. But you're most likely right, there's no one to check these summaries and contributions.

Oh. I thought he meant to add it as a spoken language for the show for display/database purposes only.

Yes, we have no one on staff who reads/writes Portuguese well enough to check/approve summaries. The graphic designer is from Portugal but he only does graphic design on a very limited basis and doesn't do much else with the site.

Sorry, J.Luiz!

Hey MacDeacon,

Explaining... There are some differences between portuguese from Brazil and Portugal.
In fact, it is like a different accent language with different words and slangs.
We can understand each other that's a fact too, but it use to have different versions for computer stuff as well. Several softwares have both options, portuguese from Brazil or Portugal. Including Windows, for example.
In subtitle movies we have both as well.
That's why I mentioned.

And I'm sad because there's no staff for portuguese reviews.
In fact I want to apply for it. But I do't have all the requirements yet.

I would appreciate if you and other staff members could help me to be staff.

Thanks
J.Luiz

Would it be possible to add Wales (plus Welsh flag) to 'Country of Origin' and 'Country In which it airs'.
(I would also prefer a Welsh flag next to my user name as well. )


Thanks.

Please add "Catalan" as spoken language for the country of Andorra.

I have a show to add: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0439067/

Question:

Is it at all possible to get "NOT FOUND" in the spoken language section like networks and then we could type in the missing language and if approved it automatically adds to the list?

Thanks, Ron.

Well don't be in too much of a hurry now as I know that no one here cares if I add a NEW series with an American star in it or not?

I know I'm wasteting my time but I will try again please add "United Arab Emirates" to "Country in which airs".
