@julian I think the abandonment will be an issue either way with non english support forums, if someone wants to use NodeBB, but needs support, you need someone that:
- Speaks their language
- Understands NodeBB enough or can atleast can translate their issue into English.
Having a category for every language wouldn't be good. Hence why I mentioned just having a "non english support" category, and using tags for the language.
But having said this, if NodeBB has been translated into X languages, it's likely support will be needed at some point for one of those languages. Maybe not often, but, eventually.
