Request: Open up forums from one side to the other

It might be beneficial for those who are studying English from the perspective of other languages to interact more freely with those of us from English-speaking backgrounds. The current discussion forum organization doesn't allow for this directly, as we can apparently only enter into forums on our side of the site unless we reset our preferences to those of a non-English speaker studying English.

Question here : you can put a space after "¿" and before "?"? I was pretty sure that, as in english but on the contrary of french (in which you have to), you couldn't.

J'ai toujours mis un espace la en espagnol, mais vraiment j'ai oublié le plupart de les regles. Il faut pardonner aux les anciens, non?

OK, I just had a doubt, since I thought you were native spanish speaker/writer.

By the way : "[...], non ?" with a space before "?". This one I'm sure. :) :)

No, I'm not a native Spanish speaker, just a well-trained non-native silly one who thinks he can still manage French, too. :D

I completely agree.
I think it would be better to have one forum by pair of language : http://www.duolingo.com/comment/746673

Yes, it would be cool if something like that is officially implemented, in the meantime, in this topic: http://www.duolingo.com/comment/697453 The user Davu (His post should be at the top) has compiled links leading to the other forum sections for each language.

Very cool. That would be sticky-worthy, had we stickies. 40 points for use of the English subjunctive! :D
