Hi to all.
This is my first post. First I would like to compliment the managers of the game and thank them for their excellent work, including moderators. The same goes for players, always kind and friendly.
I apologize for my English, I'm italian .. some words are beyond my knowledge, but I will try. Forgive if some sentences were to include male, is not in my nature to offend anyone.
I read all the posts and I must say that maybe because working for years on the Internet .. I understand both sides: managers and players.
Managing a game or a multilingual community is not always easy. We are also subject to which laws, including those to be the first to prevent illegal acts and in doing so everyone chooses the most appropriate way to do it. Who can afford many servers divides the players into several servers, who sometimes can not even for personal choice, usually relies on volunteer moderators.
A server costs money. Many servers require changing some programmers initial choices that will enable them to manage a larger community.
In any case, no one is obliged to do anything. I think that everyone knowing about it. Democracy is a thing, this is a game, even if it has its part to the fact that an approach can sometimes unite more people, more cultures, different languages. Focus the choices that a manager makes when communities decide on the balance security/gameplay or server overload/popularity .....etc
Many games on the Internet are crowded by thousands of users. This is a game little by comparison. But .. But there is one.
This is a really good game. It is really.
If that were already open to dialogue in several languages on the same server but I believe that their managers would open the way to popularity in a short time. In a second step could start servers in different languages more easily, because some players are actually owners of servers, or have a chance to host in their own language. However .. even the great Chinese wall is made of small bricks and each track is made of small steps. It starts this way, small choices. They are small choices which then will the differences in the future of a game, so a company.
For this reason I appeal to operators of the game. You wonder if you can try to manage for a while, different languages, to see if this would lead many more players or not. Perhaps relying on volunteer moderators in different languages?
I know that maybe does not care that the game becomes known throughout the world or that reaches a wide popularity, but why not try?
Personally, I can already give a help in this area. I believe in very open source and I believe in sharing knowledge, even for a game.
I have contacted other players in different languages and I proposed them to translate the wiki. I have also offered to host in my server, if necessary. For this, however .. I would first get the consent of managers or of wiki game.
This is my opinion, a person who perhaps understands very words of the operators of the game in many ways, which has moderated in the past thousands of users at the same time, but that was and is also moderate and player.
Now I speak from player .. I do not have the "whispers" in the game. This is because this PC use this to work and I can not update it now and when I did not have many options that many other people. I can only speak in public. This is because in Ubuntu is no more support for version 8.04. It is not a problem for me. But in doing so I have to speak in public .. and in English.
Ok .. I will do. I know that like me, there are many others who have earlier versions of the game and if I am forced to speak in their own language only in "whispers" can not do that.
Thank you for space on the forum and I renew my greetings to all.
