I can't believe that this was dragged up from almost one year ago to ask for pirate talk ! I obviously can't speak for the translation team here, but if I'd been asked if I wanted such a package in my old job, the answer would have been a definitive no. I suspect that there's more than enough to do with real languages on SMF, without adding invented ones.
I wasn't asking for pirate talk to be done for me. I'm doing it, whether anyone wants it or not, and was wondering if there was any other interest in it.
That's the point, demand != supply. If someone wants to go ahead and do it, that's up to them. They believe there is demand, and just because it isn't widespread demand doesn't mean there isn't demand for it.
People do things for the craziest reasons, including Google.
True. Folks on a forum that I administrate (as a hobby for fun) have been "heavily requesting" (they know better than to demand) a pirate language option. We always participate on the board and encourage everyone to post like a pirate for that day, and I've seen no one posting any other way on that day. I'm doing it for that forum, no one else. If someone else is interested in obtaining it in time for September 2013, then I'd be willing to share. That's the only reason I stopped by. Sure, probably no one else has the time that also has the skill, but hey, I'm retired. I'll make a bit of time somewhere over the next few months. I'll also have a special pirate theme for the forum designed for the event, that will automatically change for the day, as I already have made the coding changes necessary to "switch themes and site logos" for special occasions, such as Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Christmas, Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc. I have special themes for all those, and plan on completing one for the Talk Like a Pirate Day as well. Why not?
Isn't that Pirate Day Talk thing just for.. like.. 12 year olds?
Well, shiver me timbers! I be nay 12 year old. I be a retired programmer o' them computer type contraptions! Avast! Speakin' like a pirate be as good fer me spirit as kidnappin' a pretty princess, me hearties! Arr! Ye must be one o' them 12 year old scurvy dogs t' even think such a thing, land lubber!
