With all the drama happening in Greece at the moment, a Greek subforum would help promote the bitcoin cause in a good way.

Background: With the eurozone countrys wanting Greece out, the local people will have little choice about the fact that their new currency will be diluted and worth little. Let the Greeks talk about what they can do about converting their euro's (while they still have them) to a currency no government can dilute. Answer: Bitcoin.

This is a great Idea. And it will help us gauge the success of our efforts in promoting BTC to Greeks.

+1, obvious and good idea, I am wonder why there are no Greek subforum yet.

FWIW there's a Greek thread, which is a good start to getting a subforum. Can't say it's active though.

Are you looking for mods for the greek section, or calling out for the mods to create the subsection? :-)

+1 If anyone needs a subsection here, it's the Greeks, provided that they are actually here!

How many members do we have that actually live in Greece? Perhaps, such a poll would be useful in this thread.

That's why i posted the thread mentioned above; people from all over are discussing B in this forum, but we seldom hear from the Greeks.   Huh

Perhaps, they are discussing it somewhere else?  Huh

Has B ever been mentioned in Greek mass media?

Never in the mass media. Few people know about it but I am trying my hardest,  hehe. Somebody make that poll somewhere if feasible.

Ok, here is the POLL!

Which part of the Greek mass media would be the most effective to request to present B to the Greek public?

Well it depends on how much you want to pay. TV would be ideal.  But Facebook and blogs are good and free thought.

Well, what about the way we did it in the early days? Just go to various mass media entities, and ask them to do a comprehensive story on Bitcoin?

How many Greeks and associates are in the forum poll

Do we really only have 2 people here that are willing to admit that they are Greek?  Huh

Who did that? Or if we could find 10 greeks in the forum each one could give like 1 euro/month and start a facebook ad campaign targeted to people that would likely like bitcoin.

Check with Bruce Wagner, for example. If i remember right, he was the first voice of Bitcoin in the mass media, even before Gavin. There were others who did their share to get the editors, reporters and such to cover it back at the end of 2010, beginning of 2011...

All it would really take is for someone to convince a major Greek TV news bureau to do a story on Bitcoin...

In days like these, it's not "easy" for everyone to say they're Greek. Mass media have made it look like Greeks are losers, worthless, lazy, [put something derogatory here], because of the crisis. There are times that people look down on us even though we work 12+ hours per day, don't have a truly free education/health system, pay huge taxes and foremost we had nothing to do with all that money flying around. (Hm... while revising before posting, my drama sensor just beeped)

I vote in favor for a Greek subforum. I know people who might be interested in Bitcoin but are not that good with English and would not be able to keep up with conversations.

Most Greeks with the ability to evade taxes, do so. Freelancers do so in most cases. On the other hand you wouldn't expect them not to evade taxes. When you see your neighbor evading huge amounts because his uncle knows someone in the parliament, you fell like an idiot for paying your taxes while the healthcare and the education system are utter crap and practically not even free. So don't blame Greeks for tax evasion. On the other hand you can blame most Greeks for voting those assholes in the parliament every 4 years, prolonging this unfair situation that even voters hate, showing a complete lack of reasoning and looking only how they make things better for themselves (in the short term).

And as Serenata said, most Greeks that have a job work way more than the average European but produce far less than the average European and get paid far less too.

If Europe wants to blame something on Greeks, it's the way they vote. We seriously haven't got the tiniest idea of how a democracy works. And most Greeks I've talked with don't even grasp simple notions like "personal freedom" or "coercion". And to be honest you wouldn't expect anything different if you take into account the education system here.
