  • Are the Japanese culturaly isolated online?

    I've been posting at this forum for a long, long time, and I've seen psoters from many national backgrounds -- far more than one would expect from a nominally english-only board - but I don't remember ever seeing a native Japanese person here -- or anywhere else, for that matter.

    Is this just here (assuming I didn't blink and miss somebody), or do the Japanese just stay to themselves online, as they seem to do IRL?
    No, I did not steal that from somebody on Something Awful.

    look at all the manga ****ers out there in the west

    apart from those, they probably are, as are the French

    I could do with some more French and Japanese if it meant a few less Finns

      We have several French posters -- Spiffor, Davout...damn, there's at least one more whose name I can't remember, and I don't mean Maroule.

      Still, no Japanese.

          UR is Chinese.
          DaShi comes from here.
          DT?

          I mean native Japanese -- not Japanese-Americans, not westerners living in Japan.

              Japanese are used to very multicoloured interfaces. ACS is too grey for them.

              I'm sure I've seen one Japanese guy over at europa-universalis.com.

                I take it you haven't tried the MoO3 colorset.

                  I know we had one awhile ago, itokugawa. Back when donDon(Straybow), ito, and myself compromised the entire discussions of 'what should be in Civ3'.

                      well OK, but when they first visit this site, they think it's some office stuff. but then I suppose even in Japanese offices everything is red and blue and neon green and full of underage sex.

                        the advantage is I can say all these things without anyone feeling offended

                          @ Echtelion's explanations.


                          I would also like to see more Japanese, Chinese, Indian and other posters from far away countries.

                          Is there anyone from India here?

                            Interesting. I don't remember seeing any Japanese posters here, either.

                            I have seen Japanese posters on message boards, though. Of course, I read a couple anime-centric ones, and run one myself (which does have at least one Japanese poster). One of my pages gets tons of hits from Japanese IPs as well.

                            They're out there and looking, but they may not be posting much.
