Revision as of 15:12, 6 December 2010 by Admin (Talk | contribs)

This a proposed welcome page to the Powderhorn Neighbors Forum is Spanish.

The purpose of the page is to:

  1. Introduce the forum in Spanish
  2. Make it clear that any language may be posted to the forum. Spanish is welcome.
  3. Explain that most participants are posting in English and sometimes sharing in Spanish.
  4. Link to an "auto-translated" view of the forum (and make it clear that it is computer translated and will be hard to understand.)
  5. Add a link to a "wiki" page with directory links to Spanish-language content specific to Minneapolis

Text to translate:
