Default Informations in other languages?

Hi,

I am a Foo Fighters fan and a new member of your postboard.
First I want to say hello to all of you!

I was searching for a postboard or a fan club in Germany, but I could not find something like this. For me sometimes it is more difficult to read and understand your posts in English. But I will try.

My question is: do you know a postboard in German, which is similar to yours? Or is there a German fanclub? I only found a site on Facebook, but that is not what I was searching for...

Thanks!
Stefanie

Hi Stefanie, welcome to the board.

I'm afraid I don't know of any German communities however, whilst all messages on this board are in English we don't require perfect grammar, if you need to use google translate to read and post on the board, that is fine.

I perfectly understood all of your post, by the way, so your English seems very good to me.

Hi Simon,

thank you for your feedback!

Yes, I can read or write something with a little help from google.

Another point is, I think that members here less talk about Foo Fighters events in Germany. That is another reason, why I was searching for a board or a fanclub in Germany. But it does not matter. I am glad to found this board, too!

Hi Casselfornia,

Maybe you can try this unofficial Foo Deutschland Facebook Page, although it doesn't look very active either.

But I'll echo Simon's message, you're more than welcome here.

Hi Stefanie, welcome to the board!

Maybe you could start your own thread about Foo shows in Germany? I'm sure many people here could join you to talk about past and upcoming shows over there.

And don't worry about your English for one second

"Your English is better then most..." is another one which makes my eyes bleed.

Uh Oh... I tried to post a link and I am not allowed to! bbs.foofighters.com does not allow new users to post links until a minimum post count is reached. This regulation is in place to prevent spam.

If you included a link or quoted a link someone else posted, it won't work until you've made 10 posts.

Yes, I quoted a link someone else posted. Ah ok...
Did and do you talk about German Foo Fighters events on this board? I am sad, because the only concert this year in Germany is a gig on the Lollapalooza Festival in Berlin. And I had no possibility to see them in another European country.

I have found the German Facebook page, too. But it seems that not many users are active there.

And it was not my intension to trigger a discussion about the English language.

Hi Stefanie and welcome !

The great thing about this board is that we talk about ALL Foo Fighters events. So when the band is touring like right now, the board remains constantly active.

If you focused on JUST Germany then you would have a very quiet fan space for the reason you mention - they are not there very often. But we certainly have German fans here. Many of those that participate will go to multiple shows in the US or the EU in each tour cycle. They often meet up with each other, share information and tips etc. So it is always the best source for touring information and planning.

The main board areas are the "Tour Talk" and Foo General Discussion". If you look regularly on there you will get a good understanding on how things work.

Many of us don't get to go to many show because of out location (I'm in New Zealand) but we still get to share in the excitement of others that do and when there is any kind of news that affects what the band are doing or have said, it will always be here within a day, and often before it is in main stream news

Thank you for your response! Your answer included the informations I wanted to know.

I like this board and I need to look for an overview of the various topics here.
First I have to watch and learn.
