It's not a rule that you can't speak Turkish, it's just within the guidelines that you must speak English, as there are so many different native languages of members on AbsoluteSkating, that English is the one most can understand.
There is a exception, however. You can speak french on Romain's MB, as it's his native language. You're allowed to speak the native language of the skaters on their boards, but there only.
Also, despite English being the main language used on this board, the languages of a skaters nation are allowed on his/her/their own forum, but only there!
I guess that feride is also able to speak turkish in private/personnal messages!
So sorry about that feride, if you want, you can let a little word in turkish sometimes but not a full conversation in the topic (this is a rule of ASwebsite, and I can understand that well), however, if you want to speak turkish with other turkish people there in AS, you can do it by sending them personnal/private message! In addition of what said melaniya, I guess another reason is that it would be difficult (or impossible) for the admin to control what is said on this forum if this is in a foreign language that they can not understand
i have no problem with english...i just wanted to celebrate her birthday with our language...i think it is not a big problem...we didn't write bad things as you read...but i can advice feride that if she writes english here, she will learn english better...
