Not everyone here speaks/writes the same language. To help with communication, please categorize yourselves by language categories on your user page. Example language groups: en for English, de for German, and so on. Additionally, users can specify their level of proficiency in the language:
- 0 indicates someone who does not understand the language.
- 1 stands for basic knowledge: the ability to understand and answer simple questions in the language.
- 2 stands for intermediate knowledge.
- 3 stands for advanced or fluent knowledge: the ability to correct spelling and grammar errors in the language.
- 4 stands for near-native ability.
- N stands for native language.
