Yes and no. If you think a decision by a moderator is wrong: you are free to complain via PM or email to that moderator, and you might succeed to make him/her change his/her mind and to revoke a decision. If you don't succeed: you'll have to accept that decision.

Where should I post questions not answered by this FAQ?
In the most appropriate part of this forum. If in doubt: here (as a reply to this FAQ or as a new topic in this part of the forum.

Is it o.k. to complain in this forum about the way this forum is run?
Yes, of course it is. Please use the Semper reformandum-section of this forum for such complaints.

What languages can I use for my postings?
Generally speaking: any language read by any of the adminstrators/moderators (Latin, Ancient Greek, and most of the Germanic, Romance and Slavonic languages).
However: There are two aspects you should consider:
  • Your posting will have a wider readership if you go for one of the more popular languages (more popular amongst those interested in renaissance intellectual history), and posting in English will probably give you access to the widest audience.
  • Going for anything except English, Latin, German, French or Italian may result in missunderstandings and wrong reactions by a moderator if the moderator on service who first reads your posting should have problems to interpret it correctly at the time she or he is reading it.

(Sorry: I'm  completely out of practise reading Classical Arabic and Classicl Hebrew ...  Sad (hck))
