How many people are on the Scottish Gaelic team? Thank you to you all! Cùm suas an obair mhat! :-)

Hi there! I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all, the contributors, and all the native/fluent Scottish Gaelic speakers who have been posting and answering questions in the discussions and forums! It been a massive help to learning Gàidhlig! :-)

I can't wait to see what's in store in the future for the Scottish Gaelic course! I truly think it's one of the best courses in its first iteration! Cùm suas an obair mhath! (Keep up the good work!) - Stolen from reddit :-) https://www.reddit.com/r/gaidhlig/comments/echpj5/i_made_a_video_testing_how_much_scottish_gaelic_i/

One thing I was wondering, I saw on the incubator that there's currently 15 contributors, but on the course page it shows 4 contributors. I just wondering, how many of you are on the team and actively working on the course still? Of course, I know Joannejoanne12 and CIMacAonghais are clearly still working on it! How many of the other contributors in the incubator/on the language page are part of the active team? I'd love to thank all of them individually!

For example on the course page it shows 4 contributors:

  1. MartainnMac - Contributed 40%
  2. joannejoanne12 - Contributed 34%
  3. CIMacAonghais - Contributed 21%
  4. KingsleyAm4 - Contributed 2%

And then on the incubator page it says there are 3 gold contributors:

  1. CIMacAonghais
  2. joannejoanne12
  3. MartainnMac

The other 12 are (in order from left to right):

  1. Alasdair91
  2. Micheal73045
  3. eilidhskye
  4. JMacInn36912
  5. DKjRU9
  6. FionaMacIs1
  7. SteCymru14
  8. Mairi122779
  9. mc1rxy
  10. EilidhMo

Mòran taing to all the contributors and native/fluent speakers who have contributed to the course and forums! Cùm suas an obair mhath! :D


TL;DR (Too long, didn't read): I just wondering, how many of you are on the team and actively working on the course still? Of course, I know Joannejoanne12 and CIMacAonghais are clearly still working on it! How many of the other contributors in the incubator/on the language page are part of the active team? I'd love to thank all of them individually!

Hey! I could be wrong but I think currently there are 3 of us (Màrtainn, myself and Joanne) working on it regularly. Another two have just come on board and are in the process of being "onboarded" and a few others have helped us on a more occasional basis, with things like alternative translations, adding exercises and initial testing. Most of the other listed contributors provided voices and will hopefully do so again in future. Hope that helps!

It would be interesting to know where the older gentleman is from. I was confused with an-t-sùil dhubh. It sounded like an t-sùair dhubh. Almost like the black Swede. It’s nice to hear different accents though.

What do you mean the older gentleman and the black Swede? Not sure what they mean?

It sounded like he was saying an-t sùair instead of an-t sùil

I second the thanks - I imagine this is a lot of work, and I know I'm really appreciating all they have done. Gaelic is my gran's first language, but she's been gone for awhile, so this is my attempt to continue the tradition in my family (and there really is nothing funnier than learning gaelic swear words from octogenarians who insist you learn them - those crazy Cape Bretoners!)
