Using English on the Viewingstone Forum

Post  Guest on Thu Jul 22, 2010 2:02 am

Dear fellow stone lovers:

This is an English language forum.
The English used here does NOT have to be good, it only has to be understandable.
99% of postings from people whose first language is not English is quite understandable.
I speak from experience since my first language is Hungarian and learned English after I was 19 years old.
Using other languages, such as Japanese, Vietnamese are encouraged only if it posted with English translation that is understandable for all participants.

As a member of this forum from its inception, well over a decade ago, I hope that you all contnue posting so we can learn from each other.

Sorry Chris that I have not included a picture, but I felt that this had to be stated.

Cheers everybody.

Peter Aradi

But to write understandable English, your English must be good first... to understand how English syntax is different.

Ok guys, this forum is a way for us suiseki lovers to discuss and learn from one another suiseki. It is nice to meet people who share the same interest even just thru this forum. I agree with Peter that inasmuch as this is an english forum, we should use english, so I urge everyone to continue posting in your Vietnamese english,Chinese english,Japanese english, French english or even the silent english of Peterbrod,I assure you we will understand each other because our topic is about SUISEKI.Lastly,I would like to suggest that this topic be deleted as soon as possible.

.Dear Mr Hungtran.
In another topic, "paradi" ask to Koda to post in another topic; I do it for him :

"Thank you for sharing all stones you are been Post. Learn thing not good are still learning.
I has been read all your (Killing) CUT Stones .
But Let Me ASK you some questions ?
> VN are alots of nice Stone Right (BLK Stone) ?
> Do you have more natural Stone ,than CUT stones?
> Why you are LOVE to CUT< Kill> Stones ?
Please Try To Uncut Stone that mean You are Love nature,
The Suiseki Lover They're always Love the Bone of Stone,The tase of the Nature
Finaly You can Cut, But when you Cut Stone that mean we have No Choice ! <NO CHOICE= Means Stone Must Look So Beautyful/ Awesome #9-10>
All My Words are From Bottom of my Heart ,Love ART It's mean You are live with Natures
@ believe that life is worth living ,and your belief will help create the fact


I'm agree with Koda.

Suiseki are, in the beginning, meditation objects. I imagine that it was not important to have a lot of suiseki.
I have the impression that some collectors cut a lot of stones for having a big collection. No spirituality in that. I have not a lot of suiseki, it's not a problem for me. I prefer to have 3 or 4 uncut stones (and "respect" natural evolution) than have many cut-stones, everywhere in my house ! The sentimental value is very different.
I think that it's really essential ! It's not a point of detail !

Is-it a embarrassing subject for you ?

NB : no agressivity in my post ! .
