Suggestion: split "joined"

Postby davipt » Thu May 30, 2013 11:37 am

The word "joined" is used in two different contexts and it would be nice to have them split.

On the my wazer it shows like "I joined" or "You joined".

On the map, when tapping another wazer it's used as "He joined"

In non English languages the verb is different depending on the person.

So far in PT we're using a neutral formal word that covers both cases but we'd like to keep all conversation informal.

It's low priority from my side.

For spanish at least, It would be easier to have "Joined" and "Joined:".

Hi,

We were thinking to change "Joined Waze on year ago..." to "Became a Wazer one year ago..." under My Waze.
Another solution is to change it to "Joined" and "Joined: " (with colon) that will make it 2 different string and resolve this issue.

What do you think?

Best,
Orit

Spanish would also benefit from this in the same way as portuguese, since right now we are also using a neutral form.
