Don't worry about it. In fact, "IdeaShape Studio" is developing
the English forum. But we need a native English speaker to manage it.
Will you serve as the manager or could you find someone ? Waiting for
Zafka reports that some translation of the interface is on the way.

But I do have concern. You know so far there are only you and Rene
interested in Hipihi as foreigners. I don't think it's the right time
to make an English forum. We are busy for many important projects.
Even I'm afraid there's no persons managing the forum after we spend
much time to develop it. I think we could make the forum when there
are enough foreigners. How do you think ?

I think the interest from non-Chinese speakers stems largely from lack
of non-Chinese documentation and support. If the company wants to
interest non-Chinese speakers it should lead the way, starting out by
making an English language forum. If they don't want to spend the
resources on that at this time, then if third parties provide adequate
information in other languages, the interest will be there. The
interest will come after readable information is available, not
I suspect that the need to install the Asian language pack and enable
Chinese PRC and Chinese Simplified in the Control Panel Regional and
Language settings is deterring people from giving Hipihi a try right
from the start, above and beyond not being able to read the
interface. There are no instructions regarding this on the Hipihi
web site. This topic needs to get covered in depth if people are
going to try Hipihi while it is in Chinese.
There is now a set of screenshots of the interface with English
translations soon to be made public by Zafka. I'm sure there will be
some new interest once the screens showing the prim building interface
become known. A new virtual world in which SL building skills can be
put to use is bound to interest some people.
Time to go to work.
