[Groups] German Group vs. Deutsche Gruppe — why?

Hello folks,

I just went through the groups I’m in, and I noticed that there are two German groups:

and

Wouldn’t it be appropriate to merge these two groups?

Greetings, Tom

nowadays everybody speaks English (less those who study the complexe game GO). So enough to have the ENG version.[/quote]
I strongly disagree, the German group should be in German, of course, since NOT everybody speaks EN — just think of our friends in the ex-GDR (Eastern Germany).

Also, what’s the raison d’être for a national group if that group’s language is the language of that country?

p.s.: BTW, it’s not “less those who study […] Go”, it is ”at least those […]” :wink: so much for us Germans speaking what we believe to be English :stuck_out_tongue: (pls note that I’m including myself here ;-))

Groups are managed by the community, so I think you should propose that to the respective groups’ admins.

Mh… then … I guess I’ll just keep quiet and watch. I’m not prepared to let this become work.

Thank you, @flowing!
