I agree with practically all of us and I try to do my best for people sometimes to understand that rule  :P

 

if I can speak in the mother language of a person always I try to take that one in PM and quickly and simply I explain the rules or in a simple english to be sure to be understood.

but the best, I think for all newbies in game, it's to read profile. Most of us say our own location and for others (like me  :D ) who's not telling their own we put in the profile the different languages we speak that's a good way to avoid this problem.

 

I think like that we can be OK with all, no necessary to annoy people with the rules numbers like some do but just be kind and explain it simply.

the community can do that without Mods sure we're all adults and with a little of comprehension and some kindness you can be sure to obtain all that we are expected.  :unsure:

I don't think anyone have problem with line or two like greeting or simple question.

 

I think problem is with people  - 2 or 3 of them speaking in their own language in crowded area and then getting offensive about it. I saw it few times during last 2 weeks or so.

Bobi you made ​​me smile :D  , I think we do not need a new chat , I believe that we all need to start with ourselves , to realize what we do and how it affects the other , we must begin to respect themselves and others , then I think this problem is solveditself .Because people who do not respect themselves , they will never respect others  :)
 
 
lyrics:
 
Respect yourself
Change your mind
Respect yourself
Dont be blind
Respect yourself
And you will see the light 

Respect yourself
And you will find your way
So practise what you pray
Dont run away
Respect yourself 

Respect yourself
Respect yourself
And you will see the light 

1.
If you are feeling weak so deep inside
No place to run, no place to hide
R. E. S. P. E. C. T
Respect your destiny 

If you dont know what is right or wrong
If you feel confused and your thoughts are gone
R. E. S. P. E. C. T
Respect yourself, be free 

2.
Dont care about what people say
Believe in yourself and go your own way
Respect - no resignation
Leave the path of isolation 

Dont care about what people say
R.E.S.P.E.C.T , will never get away
Today, we stay, and pay attention anyway
Fairplay, everyday dont run away 

3.
You dont know, no, what you dont know
Like the colours of the rainbow
Respect is the name of the game
Respect yourself and you never miss your aim 

If you gonna show weakness
You gotta let them know
You dont know, no, what you dont know
If you really wanna grow, say no just go

Yes, this.

Same goes for clique speak, especially now we have group chat.

I never have a problem with people not speaking English, rather the 'sorry for bad English' saying get's on my last nerves. Seriously just speak your own and I'll guess what you're saying. Much more tolerant than hearing you 'apologize' every single time you speak for not being fluent in mine.

First of all it is a rule, I understand English is not everyone's first language and that some people have a hard time with it.  I have seen it used more and more and not just for a simple greeting.  A simple greeting is fine, I have no issues. English is a universal language and should be used in local and world chat.  It common sense, respectful and well less annoying to others, seriously if there is a need for you to have a conversation, find the person and pm them.  By the way that goes for everyone using world chat as a conversation place, I do not need to be a part of your conversation, find that person and open up a pm. World chat should be for a quick hello to all and trying to locate someone... it is not a conversation place.. so many times simple messages get lost in someone's convo and the person they are trying to reach misses it.

 

Anyways... who cares anymore.. no one to enforce rules so why the hell even have them..  I am still for English being used.. it is out of respect for all players..

Many people on this planet can understand a little "English" which is the international language on lot of things (internet, sports, games, etc...).
So i find very easier for each of us to adopt this "common" language. 
 
I can understand people who are not fluent in English (like a french, languages ​​and me, it makes 2 ! :lol: ) but don't see this rule as a constraint but just a respect for all users.
We have lot of people in this world coming from different countries, i'm sure you'll can meet people and speak on your own language on PM.
 
And don't forget kindness, smile, respect and love are languages too !  ;)
 
PS : if my English teacher could read what I'm writing, she would have a heart attack !  :P

 but don't see this rule as a constraint but just a respect for all users.

 

I'm sorry, but this issue has nothing to do with respect, and I feel that people who think it does are conflating two different things: people playing the game the way they want to play it and people harassing other players.

 

If two people are having a conversation in Local or World Chat about something that I don't understand or that I am not interested in, I just ignore it. End of story.

 

This happens all the time, when I hear people talking about other games they play or when they are bantering with their friends. Socializing is what Local and World Chat is for, and just because other people are talking about something I don't understand doesn't mean they are disrespecting me. 

 

And a conversation in a language I don't understand automatically falls into that category. Two people speaking in Russian sounds the same to me as two people talking about WoW or any other online game I have never played. I don't understand a word of it, but I don't have to, because it's not my conversation.

 

There are a lot of people who play this game differently from how I play it. But as long as they don't send me cold invites, spam me, harass me, or impersonate my friends, then as far as I'm concerned, they should do as they like. At least when it comes to the 3DX community, "live and let live" is all the respect I need.

Well, i must admit "respect" was a too strong word.
I'm nothing to judge or blame anyone here. People can speak and say what they want of course (at the moment they don't spoil others players game of course) !
My bad if my previous left to think otherwise.  :wacko:
 
Just want to say is more easier to have a common language in world or local chat precisely because of the social part (specially think for newcomers this is better).
I remember when i started and i think i would have been confused if i didn't understand a little what was written on these chats because this is the first contact we have with the game and people, when we come in this world !
 
And now, even if i'm no longer a newbie, sometimes i still like to talk, meet and laugh on local or world chat.
 
That's why i prefer keep English language there, but this is only my opinion.  :)

Personally I'm astounded by how good peeps English is. There are some non native English speakers in the game who, frankly, can hold a conversation better than a lot of native speakers.

As a typical Brit who only speaks some high school French and Spanish I'm well impressed, love you all.

As most folks have said it's the rules and no one minds a little culture in public. Agree that as long as it doesn't dominate the chat it's all good :)

Ca me fatigue de tout traduire: j'ai compris que les langues autres que l'anglais n'étaient pas souhaitées sur ce site ? Merci de me le confirmer ou d'infirmer.

I speak several languages fluently, English is not my native language but I manage quite well. I can also dabble in French and German. And for the adventurous in here you can always talk to me in my mother tongue, Dutch. :)

I support the "spirit" of the rule in the sense that speaking in the same language makes it easier for people to communicate and build a community. Having people talk in public chat in different languages may make other people feel excluded.

I don't think we should enforce the "letter" of the rule 100% though. If someone is really struggling to use English then I'm fine with them switching to another language we both understand.

I agree that english should be the common language in world and local. But i dont think people should immediately try to apply the rules where a couple of phrases of non english are spoken there (as ive seen happen).

Tolerance and respect and proportionality are the principles we should apply rather than jump on someone for the odd snippet of non english.

Of course full conversations in world in other languages, which ive also seen happen clearly are against the rules.

I think this could be an issue and as a newbie here i have not seen much of it all yet, but i would say its best to go into a group chat or PM etc, in just the same way that a lot of conversation is better used in PM's haha!

 

I also think 3DX chat is better off for having just one world chat. Another well known online game uses different dimensions and it does seem to create multiple communities.
