I'm just curious, why are there so many people in the memberlist who don't have any posts? Where are all these people? Here I think I'll try to say it in French to practice.

Je suis seulement curieuse, pourqoui il y a autant de personnes dans la liste de membres qui n'a pas des [posts?]? Ou sont tout ces personnes?

Is that right? I'm not very good at this, I have to use my dictionary a lot! Laughing

Au Revoir!

Probablement ils ont abandonné les forum.
I am 70% sure that's right but I still have to use my dictionary a lot too.
By the way is it still snowing in the states, it stopped in Canada. Smile

Sometimes people register to get advanced features such as "see unread posts".

But I think they are too shy. Unless I scared them (I am the tough teacher here Twisted Evil ) Laughing Laughing

Nope. But that's pretty good Wink

Correction:
--> Je me demande pourquoi il y a autant de personnes dans la liste des membres qui n'ont jamais posté. Où sont toutes ces personnes?

That sounds better Razz

"I wonder why" is better than "Je suis curieuse..." in this context.

I'm in Illinois and it is raining and sleeting today and very windy Crying or Very sad
Je suis au Illinois et il fait pleut et [...] aujourd'hui et il fait vent beaucoup.

How do you say "it is sleeting" in French?

Thanks for the help, Julien! :D

What did terry say Question I can't figure it out.

Je suis dans l'illinois et aujourd'hui il pleut et il tombe de la neige fondue, et il y a beacoup de vent.

about what i said, "wa laute. escuse!" means somethin like, well excuuuse me (in a sarcastic way). then i said it was good to know french is actually useful sometimes. but i wrote it in an msn sorta way.
the correct writing would be : c'est bon de savoir que le francais sert a quelque chose parfois

if "sleeting" does meen that melted snow is falling, as it says in the dictionnary, how does it differ from rain? i mean, melted snow is water right?

sleet isn't melted snow, it's PARTLY melted, so there is still ice in it, but its not fluffy like snow--it hurts when it hits you...its like really small hail.

Pour moi de la neige fondue, c'est de la neige qui fond complètement dès qu'elle touche le sol.
Quand elle tombe, elle est encore plus ou moins solide mais vraiment à la limite
