Lol it's ok. Few people would expect the F word to slip in such friendly acronym. :P
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Yep, can't wait to see how the French channel will be active. I find that it's a kinda great idea, since I seen some french conversations on the main channel.

yeah, I was a bit repsonsible for this.... but DJ was also responsible :P ;D but actually, I don't mind (though I'm FRench) because I'm a bilingual, and my English will be improved! (still need to make efforts for the vocab, but I'm there ;) )

@ DJ: I know a lot of F words in french!! :-X Energumènes Non Colonisés et Utilisateurs Loyalement EtrangléS (to english speakers: even in FRench, it doesn't mean anything  ;) ;D )

Your english is very good actually. If I did not see your location in your profile I would have taken a while before figuring out you are not english-native.

The only concern I have about the french channel is if it's used to ask ASM/BASIC questions, not a lot of people might be able to answer, and I myself don't program much anymore so I don't know Axe well, so I guess it might mostly be used for general calc/non calc chat :P

yeah I agree with you, non bilingual users (except kindermoumoute ;D ) will maybe abuse of the chatbox, but that would be an opportunity for Omnimaga to be opened to francophones. Actually I'm a bit disappointed because I'm learning British english, and most of the members are from US, and some words are different than others :/

Usually, only the spelling is different. There might be an extra u somewhere or an s instead of a z. Of course, there are still cases where the words are completely different.

Well there are a lot of foreign users from Europe over here so hopefully they should be able to understand british english well. In my case I used to go on mostly british forums too (like TIMGUL) so I kinda got used to some words, but not all slang like "I reckon". There are also stuff like "bloody hell" :P

Also I noticed that some people like Qazz42 and ScoutDavid actually know french quite a bit, even if this is not their native language, so hopefully they might be able to participate a bit too. Just as long as they use the Randomness sub-forum for Randomness. :P

The funny thing is that I understand english better than France french to a certain extent. I think this is because of certain expressions being used and way of typing. This is why, for example, with some french people from France, almost all our discussions are in English.

yeah, let's give to Caesar what is to Caesar (bad translation from the french expression "Rendons à César ce qui est à César")

@ DJ: I don't understand what you mean by "I think this is because of certain expressions being used and way of typing."


"This is why, for example, with some french people from France, almost all our discussions are in English." as me, for example? ;D

Oh I meant in france, they use different idioms than in Québec. Example, "J'ai la flemme" is something I read often on french forums but since we never say this in Quebec I always forget what it means. Also over here we have different ways to express our emotions when we are angry. ;D

Ah ok

And yeah I meant some words like F style. In Quebec, they use varied forms of words used to define church objects. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quebec_French_profanity
