So please add your native language(s) and any others that you feel proficient in or knowledgeable about.
 
 
(This could be an RFE and we could ask for this to be put on the Moderator Profile page but then we will need a search function and so on: maybe this simple page could do the work.)

Wouldn't it make more sense to sort this page by native and then seconday languages? Someone looking for a help with a particular language will probably find it easier to check it that way than if it's alphabetically sorted by our user names.
 
 
''Um, this is a wiki and sorted lists do not make any sense here, really. Better use wiki featues instead: You could make a [[Sub Page|SubPage]] for each language (maybe like this [[Moderator Language/Native English|/NativeEnglish]] and [[Moderator Language/Secondary English|/SecondaryEnglish]] or leave the Native/Secondary part out). Then each Editor can add their language to their category person page here on the wiki. (in my example [[Moderator Language/Native German|ModeratorLanguage/NativeGerman]], [[Moderator Language/Native French|ModeratorLanguage/NativeFrench]], [[Moderator Language/Secondary English|ModeratorLanguage/SecondaryEnglish]] and [[Moderator Language/Secondary Arabic|ModeratorLanguage/SecondaryArabic]]). Then you can just get a list of all people speaking natively German via [[Back Link|BackLink]]<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>s. [[Moin Moin|MoinMoin]] offers the possibility to list these pages on this page with macros like <code><nowiki>[[FullSearch(ModeratorLanguage/NativeGerman)]]</nowiki></code>. See [[MoinMoin:HelpOnMakros|HelpOnMakros]] and [[MoinMoin:HelpOnEditing/SubPages|HelpOnEditing/SubPages]] for details. --[[User:DonRedman|DonRedman]]
