Make a table/section for each language and move the thread to All Languages

I can see what you mean but a few things come to mind:
When Natively adds more languages, this will get out of hand if we use the same table.
If we create tables in the same thread for each language, it could get very long.
I’d still go for the separate threads in each language. My reasoning is someone trying to find a Korean Book Club is unlikely to get any interest in the Japanese ones and vice-versa. (@bibliothecary being a rare exception by doing both ).
This also would keep the threads clean, and concise. Easy to escalate to more languages by each living on their own place.
As a middle ground, maybe we can put a notes column in the table where we specify there’s some important information such as that it’s on-going in multiple languages?
I was thinking the same thing. On one hand Natively has been massively influenced by WK with avid readers being introduced from that community. On the other hand, WK and Natively aren’t formally affiliated, so as Natively grows larger it feels weirder and weirder to credit stuff over on that end… But it’s also a really great resource for Natively peeps looking for more reading variety, at least until Natively grows a bit more.
Maybe it would be best to not link outside of Natively on the book club tables, and instead rely on the individual book club thread creators to advertise their WK parent in the topic thread if they so wish… Thoughts @Megumin?
I can just remove the WK links for now, then. I think we’re still all clear on all of these clubs being Natively clubs (they’re not being hosted simultaneously on both sites, for example) so no need for a separate table/thread/etc. yet, at least.
@omk3 I don’t think I saw a link, but feel free to mention the Spooky WK Halloween club in the リング thread, since I’ll be removing the reference here.
I was very confused at this “non-LN book clubs”, until I realized it means Learn Natively and not Light Novel
All the clubs under the Informal category are fully hosted here on Natively.
In the case of きらきらひかる, it is loosely part of a WK umbrella club, in that it lists books of certain characteristics (“profoundly weird” protagonists), with links to whatever reading thread is created. So there’s a link there that links to the thread here. It’s not an official club or anything. We can remove the link back from the table if you think it’s cleaner.
In the case of リング, the connection is even looser. It was nominated in the Halloween club in WK, but didn’t get any votes, so I made a thread for it here. It’s fully a Natively club, but it has its origins in WK so to speak. Again, the link can be removed from the table. I really don’t mind either way.
Or we could add an (ext) next to the links to show the link to the parent club is external. Or WK. Personally, anything that brings more books to my attention is welcome.
Now that I look at the table more carefully, is the “club” column even necessary? All books of the same club are under the same header, which is the name of the club itself. Couldn’t we put the link in the header and remove the column completely? Any link to a parent or related external club could go in the individual threads, or as a small icon in the table here.
