Nothing happen if your post is replied in a different language. I think rules and restrictions are not needed to control it. Any member has freedom to use any language.(English and Sinhala only Wink ).

If you want to inform very important message to all members, it is better to post it in English because all members don't have sinhala unicodes to display sinhala letters. Very Happy

I think otherwise ma friend. How would you feel if one of your question answered in a different language? So posts started with ENGLISH should be answered in English & links of any language accepted. And a post started in a language otherthan english could be answered in any language. Ok mate? Wink
I think it's not better.You propose to add restrictions to Sinhala.But your point is right.So it is better to start English only section.The posts in that sections should be answered only in English.
@lemuria, @STOCK SLAYER I think both of you can agree with this. We don't need any more fight in this forum.
personally I believe all the members in this forum can understand sinhala.But if it is wrong, the proposed solution will will give better answer.
@moderators,What's your idea?

Your question is not a racist question but a sarcastic question which implements racism in a sarcastic way. And I will not comment on this issue "North & east of Sri Lanka should not be a tamil concentrated area"
due to this topic is still a strategic political agenda in the country. Exclamation

how on earth you say official language of sri lanka is sinhala? What a pity you are. How illeterate you are on the matters of general language?

for u to literate yourself see this

The Department of Official Languages at present functions as a facilitator for the effective implementation of the language policy as enshrined in the articles 18 and 19 – Chapter IV of the Constitution of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka (1978) that recognizes Sinhala and Tamil as national languages and English as the link language.

refer website of The Department of Official Languages

For your information I think you haven’t read, most sacred document in the country which is the constitution of Sri Lanka(1978).Please download and read it from the following link Arrow

http://www.priu.gov.lk/Cons/1978Constitution/1978ConstitutionWithoutAmendments.pdf



In chapter IV article 18 clearly says that the official language shall be Sinhala. king

And in article 19 clearly it implements that the national languages of Sri Lanka shall be Sinhala and Tamil. Sleep

Lemuria for your information ; English is not recognized as a national language of Sri Lanka. affraid I think your literacy is lagging between what is official and what is national……….. confused

No! starting a new section for english only posts is useless and it will cause jumbling of posts! Any member has freedom to use any language both sinhala and english in any section except sinhala section. Please stop this argument.
The only requirement is your posts should be understandable and clear to everyone always.

The 13th Amendment has been in the Constitution for twenty six years to date but not implemented. The primary reason for the dormancy was that the LTTE rejected it with vehemence.

And Amendments of the Constitution can be made powerful or powerless according to the government at present. one such great example is Eighteenth Amendment in Sri Lanka, where we have not yet seen a president in office for the 3 rd term...

But the primary Constitution(referring to 1978 Constitution) will stand with what ever government in office. king

Roboticfx and Fxx their is a sarcastic hidden racism in this thread that wants to restrict the use of Sinhala Language and lemuria is clearly showing it. scratch

If you clearly have a problem with the Sinhala Language go to a Sinhala tuition class study and that's my way of saying the 13+ Amendment of the future. cheers

OK this converstation is turning ugly the way I see this.. politics, racism, anti-social, u name it.. we have it here now..

Therefore; before this goes out of focus.. let me come again and emphasize this;

Official language of the Forum is English, but we dont mind you using Sinhalese or Tamil in between.. U have freedom to choose ur language but as I emphasised in my earlier thread, using any other language than English could only be replied by a person who understand that language, but if you post in English, there's a better chance in reading and replying..

We're SL's and Sinhalese being our mother tounge, we're more fluent in Sinhalese.
But this is an international forum and a lot of foreigners (SL's or not) are reffering this forum hence we're not changing the language to Sinhala, Tamil or any other language..

So if you want to continue the thread, let it be.. But as per my understanding the questions being asked here is "What is the Official language of Forum?" So the answer is "English".. Its simple as that..

Now do we need to clarify this further?????????????

I'm sad bcos of ur illiteracy. Our nine provincial councils are babies of 13th amendment Smile. How can u say 13th amendment not implemented. yes not fully implemented. I'm happy dat u agree srilankan government will not implement da things from the written constitution also. Pathetic situation!

Why Admins & moderators turned a blind eye on ur comment. 'If you clearly have a problem with the Sinhala Language go to a Sinhala tuition class study and that's my way of saying the 13+ Amendment of the future.'

I see a lot of crap has been posted since late. It sure is causing a lot of unwanted debates in a forum like this. People like these at times make me feel ashamed of myself.

anyway to put things in short - if this is targeted as a local SL site to discuss about the Market among us, it can be in any way you or i want how dirty it is.
If it is promoted among many nationals then the 'official' language should be English and kept clean.

If someone discusses in any other language, again no one can complain as this is not a voluntary work. If some hints are passed around though, it should not be tolerated.

Posting something in a Forum is to get wider views of the issue.
Hence more responses received; it is better.
Therefore posting something in a language which would be a hindrance to that then the whole purpose of the post would be lost.
Hope sanity will prevail.

I really don't care to read tamil or sinhala if it is not in it's original font. it's irritating.

wrt that topic, i feel it has grown out of proportions given the nature of the forum.
to-date we have never had such debates on such topics in here. i don't know if it is good or bad but i really don't want to go there, cos I'm here purely for discussions on investing in CSE stocks.

on a different note, not everyone here can take debates on a fair and gentle manner. some only do talking. so it's up to your judgement where your line is drawn. someone's gotta back down when it comes to arguing in useless places. intelligent ones will do that. what is one going to achieve here?

I do not feel that we do what we should do.. This is an investment forum and we should focus on that..
I've clearly indicated the forum language is "English" and there's no need of any arguments over it again..

If anyone has a problem regarding this pls pm slstock & myself.

The thread is now locked to prevent unnecessary questions being raised and hindrance the forum's purpose of existence..
