This makes absolutely no sense to me at all. You are dividing whole communities now. Your decision is not logical and will create more discontent globally.
I know that we caught up in private message and you and I are on the same page now, but I’m going to reply here as well in case any others share these same concerns.
We are very excited that we’re now able to dedicate more resources to making the experience on Spectrum even better. It’s very important to note that some of the language channels are only being closed temporarily while we evaluate our next steps. The end goal is to support as many languages as possible, and we’ll get there. We have a couple of job postings up to grow our German and French support, and will add more positions in a number of different languages in due time.
