Names of teams in match threads

Postby Element » Thu Feb 03, 2011 8:27 pm

Hey Mutu

I think that we should name the teams in the matches thread with their German Names

For Example

FC Bayern München not Bayern Munich

FC Köln not Cologne

I think the names of the teams should be the ones that are most commonly searched for by English speakers and prospective new users.
When you searched for and came across the forum, did you search Bayern Munich or FC Bayern München?
Usually it would be Germans who'd search for the latter.

That's why I used Cologne in the title and Koln in the body, so it will be good for both ;) Besides, fans of Bayern will neither search Cologne nor Koeln
It's important to use English in the title so as not to give the people searching the wrong impression about the language used on the forum.
