Hi everyone! I'm from Canada. The winters are usually quite cold and long here, too, but that doesn't bother me at all. I love winter. As a kid, I lived in all sorts of places (Monica: Cologne! good.gif ), because my dad was a journalist, but Canada has always been home. smile.gif

Well hello all. The names' Mark, I live in New Jersey, U.S. of A. I've been lurking here for a few days and decided to join due to the sheer quality of the smilies here! I need to thank all of the authors and creators! drinks.gif

There's an AWFUL lot of RUSSIAN ONLY posts in these ENGLISH ONLY sections
being spoken, can ya help a brother out??? rofl.gif

English is my only language, so I have a tendency to use a lot of slang...sorry! (I fixed some just now)

I can only speak the Italian curse words, and a few in German, though the latter is from working for a DE based Pharmaceutical company for a few years... (Nice of them to teach me the bad stuff, aint it? )

I hate to even SAY that I created a few smilies of my own. I would more refer to them as a "needed, animated gif, created quickly and horribly" then smilies/emoticons.

Lastly, what exactly IS a Kolobok?

hi there
Kolobok is a character of old russian folk fairy tale ( kolobok is a sort of pie, made in ball form) . Aiwan is original author and owner of these smileys and this website. These smilies got name from Aiwan's wife, when she seen them first time. Yellow circles with eyes and mouths were looking like kolobok in the books and she called them koloboks. Aiwan liked this name for his smileys and since then they are having this name.

Hey bro drinks.gif

you’ve come to the Russian site created by a very talented and honest Russian artist. His name is Aiwan. He's my good friend. He can't provide you with clear English by himself, but Dilia can do it pretty well. So, the mane things are translated by her in both ways.

KOLOBOK is one of Aiwan's trademarks and it's really come from Russian ferry tales about round bread and the old couple with no kids. So...

There is English forum room where people from many countries can understand each other easy. Join the club and will be together.

OK so now I get it! An old fairy tale. Thanks for the education, I feel much better knowing I can now safely make it a "favorite" without my Russian co-worker keeping a watchful eye on me! lol.gif

As for English/Russian forum, my apologies, I phrased my comments wrong. I meant to say that in the section known as For English Users I had spotted quite a few replies in RUSSIAN with no translation... was just playing there..... no harm inteneded! Just a little forum fun!

Anyway, thanks for the 'welcome aboard'. While I cannot translate anything, I can fix the broken English I see. I won't point out any of it because it's simply not polite, however, If I'm asked nicely I could be swayed... dirol.gif

Без перевода! (God I hope this translates correctly, I could easily look like an idiot here)
So, is anyone using a Russian/English translator webpage??? Post away!

Occasionally, if I come upon one of Aiwan's posts before dilia or Dooris has translated, I'll run it through BabelFish.

Unfortunately it can't do the job half as well as they, and usually doesn't make much sense. nea.gif

QUOTE( Mark)

See... BabelFish tells me that means "Without the transfer!"

ImTranslator says it's "Without translation!"

Both are kinda jibberish - unless that's what you meant to say. pardon.gif

"Without the transfer!" , "Without translation!"
both are correct, but usually this phrase means "without translation".

Ok.

Well in that case it's still a sentence fragment and doesn't mean a whole lot to me. pardon.gif

So, what your saying is, "I like look an idiot", just as I predicted.

I guess "Goodbye" in English didn't translate over too well, hence it bombed with the "without translation" error.... I wish it warned me about it! My first Russian/English mistake! I kinda like it! rofl.gif

Thanks, and "goodbye"! biggrin.gif

Those are wonderful pictures, Aiwan. I'd like to be there now and do some snow shoeing. It's so mild here this winter, we have no snow yet at all.

I have no winter pictures of my neck of the woods, but here are a few shots I took last summer:

Flowerpot Island
Cove Island Lighthouse
Maidenhair Fern
"The Grotto"
"Overhanging Point"
Pebble Beach
Azure and turquoise waters of Georgian Bay
Wreck of the steamer "City of Grand Rapids", sunk in 1907.
