Board request aside, the thread can be transferred to a new OP if the original OP is truly gone and someone wants to take it over.

Thanks. I will ask my fellows Pinoys who wants to take over. But we want to hear the side of the original OP first. His last activity was on May this year.

The official language of the Philippines is English. It has several pigin languages and many more dialects. They don't need their own section.

No, they don't need their own section for all those dialects (just the one "other" official language), but correct me if I'm wrong (I'm no expert on English as painfully illustrated by BitcoinDistributor, thanks for that but no need for shouting...):

But this: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=27736.0 does not seem like English to me.

So considering the daily activity over there and the number of views approaching 300K fast, I would still argue for a Philippines section...  Grin

Can we take this reason for us Pinoys not to have our own section? Those many dialect that you talking about are native language and can't be understand in the whole Philippines. Majority of the PH people understands Filipino (Tagalog) and English only and not those native languages.

As I said Im fine with the current state of PH thread . But much better if we have our own section. Smiley I already told in my post here what is my concern about.

I didn't mean there should be sections for different languages. I was wrong to think there shouldn't be a Tagalog section. There's probably enough interest to warrant one.

Well, I was bored so here's the math.

The past 7 days (little over by a few hours, +~12).

140 posts, 20 unique users, average of 20 posts a day.

10 users posted 3 times or less.

Top 5 posters account for 95 of 140 posts, top 3 account for 72.



An entire new section is probably not needed yet.

I would like to correct you here. I'm a Filipino, and Filipino is our official language, not English, though in some other encyclopedias and atlases, English is written as an official language of the Philippines, which is plainly wrong because in the 1935 Constitution of the Philippines, former president Manuel L. Quezon declared that Filipino is the official language of the Philippines, nothing more. English is widely-spoken here, but no, it isn't the official language of our country.

I participate in the Dutch and Croatian sections, and they both have "worse" numbers...

I don't see why not. Having one thread for everything seems counter-productive. I mean, the Dutch have their own subforum and every single one of us is able to speak English, but that doesn't mean we always want to.

I would support a new subsection for the Phillippines if their forum presence is significant enough to warrant it but looking at the other stats I'm not fully convinced.

After all that the Philippines have many services in bitcoin like we can pay bills thru our bitcoin , pay tuitions fee , many merchants here accepting bitcoin , bitcoin atm thru local bank , instant cashout , online wallet provider here in PH and many more , still stats are the basis for PH to have its own forum section. -_-

Honestly, we really do need a Filipino sub section.

first of all, there are legitimate discussions about Bitcoin, the others are general rambling and the rest
are talks about betting on the PBA. Decent discussion about businesses, startups and investments are basically
flooded off and such.

It needs to be organized much better by having an entire subsection.
We don't need a sister subsection, just another one in all entirety.

For once there should be a serious Filipino forum in the internet.
And it should start here.

Can the Philippines PLEASE get their own sub-section?

Not a day goes by without this popping up, 1/4M views (#2 has 100K)... Pretty please?

See: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=27736.0

PS I don't have any steak in this, I'm from Europe and don't even speak the language. I just notice this topic having daily attention and growing bigger and bigger... So this seemed like a good suggestion.

Surely, theymos won't let Leroy Fodor be the mod there since he honestly owns the largest bitcoin mining farm in all the Philippines and administers the FIRST public staking pool in crypto existence.

Filipino is the National language. All official government business is in English. It's like Canada with two official languages.

If theymos were Filipino, then such a section would have already been created, but since he's fond of Esperanto...  Tongue

Really my only concern is a personal one. I don't speak Filipino though I live in the Philippines. I support a Filipino section.

I think it'd be an appropriate time to have a sub-area for"Filipinos" and  the language itself, as the community on the this forum has been growing steadily. There are lots of Filipinos members in this  who just lurk around and I think having our own sub forum would motivate them to immerse themselves into the community. I think this would also make a great addition for the ones that actually speak the language.

Growth rate of Filipino bitcoin users / people are increasing day by day. One proof for that is a thousand members of some bitcoin facebook group who are always active everyday. Many bitcoin fb group are created for Bitcoin enthusiast. Take note : I rarely see same person replying in the same query which means everyone are interacting to each other.Another proof for that is the regular meetups and meetings about bitcoins. Another proof is the growing bitcoin service here. What else? BTC Pinoy's blog , website etc. There are so many.

Wanna create a threadonly for cebuanos. Nd this will only be noticed once there is a particular section for us.

This. If Philippines have own subsection , bitcoin enthusiast from other place/province/city which has his own native language can create thread which will lead to much higher stats for our own section.
