Can anyone tell me what this means. That was a CM when i signed in i cant understand it and curiosity is killing me.

Adminedyit December 24 2005 6:23 PM EST

Salut! M-am gandit sa salut unul din probabil prea putinii romani de pe aici!

Adrian Exodus December 24 2005 6:36 PM EST

if it helps it looks to be Latvian or Romanian and how are those spelled wrong?

AdminShade December 24 2005 7:09 PM EST

It looks like French to me.

Salut = hi or hello.

Maelstrom December 24 2005 7:10 PM EST

It's not French or Spanish. Maybe Italian, Romanian, or some other Latin-based language.

AdminShade December 24 2005 7:11 PM EST

But if it is a CM you got, why not ask the person who sent it to you?

Shadowsparkle [Jago] December 24 2005 7:16 PM EST

I'm 90% sure its Rumanian. I could ask my wife what it means, but she sleeps already.

Adminedyit December 24 2005 7:17 PM EST

I did and received no answer and I'm a very impatient person :)

Salut! M am gandit its salut one for probabil too putinii novel from pe here!

Maelstrom December 25 2005 12:30 AM EST

Oh, yeah, now it does look kinda like really badly-spelled informal French...

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] December 25 2005 5:27 AM EST

Adminedyit December 25 2005 8:27 AM EST

Perhaps read his former post then? :)

Greetings. I thought (about) this greetings but there are probably too few romanians in here (or this place).

Thraklight Resonance December 25 2005 6:11 PM EST

Or perhaps it is "Hello! I had thought I was greeting one of (unlikely?) too few Romanians of (from) around here."

Perhaps this individual who sent you the message confused you with another person from his or her country.

Adrian Exodus December 25 2005 8:16 PM EST

thats some good and plausible work thrakattack how'd you come to that translation?

Thraklight Resonance December 25 2005 9:34 PM EST

I looked at three on-line Romanian to English translation programs, none of which were capable of translating the full phrase (two of the programs require you to pay to download the full capabilities of the program, but I wasn't that curious). :-)

I then looked at several Romanian to English dictionaries. One of them gave variations and common usages of most of the words used in the sentence. Gandit is modified in another phrase as "thought out," for example, and "well thought" in a third phrase.

Salut! is a bit of a pain because, depending upon the context, can mean either hello or goodbye. I doubt that I'm even close to a perfect translation, but I think I'm in the ballpark.

mmmm.... romanian -
reminds of the numa numa dance.

It's kinda scary, but I actually like O-Zone's music

Adminedyit December 26 2005 12:38 AM EST

thank you thrakattack

Drownedbubble December 27 2005 8:24 PM EST

From a romanian player on www.coldfirestudios.com space game.(I posted the message there a few days ago) So I'd say thrakattack got it almost perfect. Sorry I didn't get it posted earlier. ********************************** yeap, this is romanian translation: "Hi! I thought to say hi to another romanian player, probably to one of the to few romanians around here!" ***********************************
