UPDATE: Following was an April Fools joke. We are remaining an English website, so don't worry, you won't need to learn French. Fun fact, though: April fools day in French is "Poisson d'Avril" (April Fish), and walruses love fishes and seafood. :walrii:

As you might have noticed, our website logo has changed, now reading "Le Morse de la Prog" instead of "CodeWalrus". Although CodeWalrus is an English-speaking website, the entire staff team speaks French as its native language. Even our Elite Coders, with the exception of Keoni29, speak French as their mother tongue. As this often proved problematic with interactions between members and staff, we had to take a rash decision.

Starting next month, CodeWalrus will become a French-only discussion forum. While old posts will remain in English, new ones will have to go in the off-topic section, prefixed with [EN] tags. During this one month transition, you will still be allowed to use English anywhere on the board while you learn French, and afterward, the use of Google Translate will be tolerated. The website URL will remain intact, although we are not ruling out the possibility of purchasing lemorsedela.prog if .prog domain names ever become a thing.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this might cause. Hopefully this should prove to be an interesting learning experience for our members, though, and eventually improve relationships between our staff and regulars.


Comme vous avez pu le remarquer, le logo de notre site web a changé, maintenant "Le morse de la prog" au lieu de "CodeWalrus". C'est que malgré le fait que CodeWalrus soit un site anglophone, notre équipe au grand complet parlent le français comme langue maternelle. Étant donné les problèmes que cela a causé lors de la communication entre l'équipe du site et nos membres, nous avons du prendre une décision assez difficile.

À partir du mois prochain, CodeWalrus va devenir un site entièrement francophone. Bien que les anciens messages demereront en Anglais, les nouveaux créés dans cette langue devront être postés dans la section hors-sujet, avec un préfix [EN]. Pendant cette transition d'un mois, il vous sera permis d'utiliser l'Anglais partout sur le site et nous tolérerons l'utilisation du traducteur Google par la suite pendant votre apprentissage du Français. L'addresse du site demeurera intact, mais nous n'écartons pas la possibilité que le nom de domaine lemorsedela.prog soit acheté si jamais l'extension .prog pour les noms de domaine voyait le jour.

Nous nous excusons des désagréments que cela pourrait causer. Nous espérons tout de même que vous retirerez des bienfaits de cette expérience d'apprentissage, et que cela améliorera la communication entre nos membres et le staff.

DJ if you're in EST it's not April 1st yet! That said I did fall for it, probably because it wasn't posted on April Fools' Day (or Poisson d'Avril).
