I don't understand these forums, Indian and Filipino. I think they will only take away from the other forums. Besides, are only people from India or interested in India and the Philippines supposed to join in the conversations? :confused:

Basically anybody can join the Forums.
INDIA and FILIPINO are new additions to what we have.
God willing we can have more ... and still anybody is FREE to join.

CC's purpose is international fellowship and we rely on God's power to fulfill his purpose in his appointed time.

These forums could be a real blessing to those who don't speak English as their first language, I'm sure. They are (as I understand) mainly so that the native languages of India and the Philippines can be used. English is the only language that's allowed to be used in the other forums, mainly for ease of moderation. I'm really glad to see these new forums here :).

Yes Jilly81 but it's not only language. There are situations particular to being a Christian in India, and in Indian culture, for example, that Indian Christians may want to share and consult with each other about. Also new Indian viisitors may be more comfortable and less shy posting in an Indian Christian Forum instead of one of the other forums dominated by native English speakers.

And every Indian member that I've asked thinks it's a great idea. So if they want it, I'm not sure why anyone else would have a problem with it. :) So we're happy to have an Indian forum and an Indian room, run or moderated by some of our trusted Indian members, for Indian Christian fellowsihp, and likewise a Filipino forum and Filipino room, run or moderated by some of our trusted Filipino members.

Also I think having an Indian Christian Forum and an India room helps to build up the Indian fellowship here, which does help to make our site even more international, and there will of course be cross-mingling of rooms and forums, so be glad if we're able to make CC even more international.

The purpose of CC is online international fellowship, and all of the things we do or add help accomplish and enhance that. :)

Anyway if these new forums are active enough with fellowship then we'll keep them here and thank God for the fellowship. It also gives our Filipino and Indian brothers and sisters here some opportunity to reach out to people from their own country, which is definitely a good thing.

This is a great idea.

How about a Russian forum? There are actually many Russian speaking people at CC (myself included). I mean I understand that we probably dont want a forum for every country on earth, but since there is a decent % of Russian members maybe its worth it?

Eugenius: We'd love to have a Russian Christian Forum. If there are enough people to get it started, and enough to keep it going. But we'd rather not have inactive forums on our list. So it all depends on you guys.

Kind of missed the 2012 date on that post didn't you? Haha.
Despite what seems to be a good size group from India on the site, the India forums are not often used.
