> TYPO3 already has lost it's former global status and a lot of international users which have moved on to other products. I doubt that shutting down the German list will cure that problem, since the real problems of TYPO3 were introduced by technocrats with a passion for latest S/W paradigms instead of a passion for CMS. This situation started around 2009 -- and is getting tougher day by day.
> I am a German living in the Netherlands, and I could live easily without a German list. I believe that dropping it could be the last coffin nail for TYPO3 in the current situation. Might be much better to encourage all users of the German list to use the English one instead. At least, if they can. Could be eased by giving "better" answers in the official English list.
> My recommendation for a better future of TYPO3: Stop all further development until there is a suitable base of information about the current state in written English. Drop that ridicules release schedule and get some non-programming/marketing staff into the team which is taking core decisions.

This is getting slightly off topic, but thank you for letting me know I'm not alone with my opinions around typo3.

As for the german list: IMO Encouraging users to use the english list is the best way. Future will tell how important the german list is.
