@ all german Lolitas!

I want to present a new "Lolita Secrets".
It has the same principle as the normal Lolita Secrets, only one thing is different: It´s only for german secrets!
So, Do you want to tell us what´s on your mind? What you want to tell to all german Lolitas?
Tell it. Tell us your secret!
Have Fun!~

Do we need this?
6th-May-2011 07:27 pm (UTC)
no, we don't. :)
6th-May-2011 07:34 pm (UTC)
I am german, but I totally thought the same.
6th-May-2011 07:57 pm (UTC)
Why would we want such a thing? Isn't one of those comms enough? Just write your secret in English like everyone else.
7th-May-2011 02:17 pm (UTC)
Other countries (france and I forget the others) have one too.
And not everyone can speak english
7th-May-2011 02:19 pm (UTC)
And you don't have to join if you don't want to
7th-May-2011 10:55 pm (UTC)
Oh, I won't, don't worry. Just because other countries have one doesn't mean we have to have one too!
Makes one wonder why they chose to advertise here in an English comm for people who supposedly don't speak English :/
7th-May-2011 11:00 pm (UTC)
Doesn't mean they can't get information still.
There are meet up/con posts that are mainly pictures, same goes for daily lolita.
6th-May-2011 08:03 pm (UTC)
I basically agree with what everyone's saying. sorry.
btw, are there enough of us for that to make sense? does anyone know how many German lolitas there are?
7th-May-2011 07:44 am (UTC)
in the general german loltia comms- dunkelsüß and mexx zirkel are about 1000 members

Es macht doch Sinn Antworten auf englisch zu schreiben, dann sieht wenigstens jeder dass wir nicht alle so wank-süchtig sind XD.

Didn't realize so many people hated Lolita secrets since it always draws a huge crowd every time there is a post. Maybe OP thought that having a german secrets would eliminate some people's needs to translate? -shrugs- Not everyone is perfectly fluent in english; I think that's the reason the OP wants it?

>: idk.

Oh, I enjoy Loli secrets as much as the next person, I just don't think it's necessarily something that should be encouraged. I don't think we need one. If they are trying to reach German speaking people who are not fluent in English they probably shouldn't advertise in an English speaking community.

"If they are trying to reach German speaking people who are not fluent in English they probably shouldn't advertise in an English speaking community"

This. xD Now that you say this, this advertisement doesn't make any sense to be posted here.
6th-May-2011 08:41 pm (UTC)
Well, I think it is a good idea. The main loli secret comm is for english stuff, and why post a non english secret to the english majority? Since german lolis dont want to or cant, at least this gives them a way that they can without alienating the majority of the readers.

Now, if only you would post in english, there wouldnt be a need for this. But since it doesnt happen...

prejudices FTW
7th-May-2011 03:13 pm (UTC)
I don't think it was meant to be prejudice.
7th-May-2011 03:40 pm (UTC)
sounds like one!

Most german lolitas post their secrets in english. that's why you don't notice, normally ;) Those of us who are active on LJ do (for the most part) speak english. I can understand those who say it's annoying when secrets are posted in german, to me it's the same with spanish or french, even though I understand a bit. I believe the person who started this just wants to create even more drama in the german community... and we've REALLY had enough of that in the last months.
7th-May-2011 04:20 pm (UTC)
I have to agree with the others... sorry.
In the time one German secret in the community comes up, probably 400 secrets of German lolitas have been written without anyone taking notice of the "language barrier"

We learn English once we enter middle school :3
7th-May-2011 04:21 pm (UTC)
I have to correct myself:
My year learnt English once they entered middle school.
I forgot they're taking lessons in primary school now.

Man kann es doch trotzdem auf deutsch schreiben, wenn man will. Kann mich nicht erinnern, dass wir verpflichtet sind in englisch den ganzen miste zu verfassen....
7th-May-2011 12:19 am (UTC)
I'm pretty sure it's allowed - I remember a German secret getting posted a few weeks ago, & the mod let it through. German speakers helpfully provided a translation for those that couldn't read it.
7th-May-2011 11:12 pm (UTC)
That seems more affective than just having another community all together if someone is willing to do it. Translation, i mean.
7th-May-2011 11:40 pm (UTC)
So many of the English secrets are illegible anyway & require someone with really good eyesight to summarise it's not like a secret in another language would make much of a difference.
6th-May-2011 10:05 pm (UTC)
Did you get permission to advertise this community?
6th-May-2011 10:11 pm (UTC)
Awesome, a lot more drama for German Lolitas.
"Rule 5: Everything is allowed"
This is so stupid I just can't find words for it D:
6th-May-2011 11:32 pm (UTC)
Obviously someone wants to start some big rant and can't get around the english comm's moderation :3 nice try.
7th-May-2011 03:15 am (UTC)
I don't see a permission from the mods to post advertisement. I also find this quite unnecessary.
