    All in good fun... but seriously FYI

    I am not saying that I am perfect far from. And I also understand a bit of language barriers as this is a global game.

    But just as an FYI:

    SPELL CHECK AND GRAMMAR will be your best friends here. It will give everyone a better and clearer understanding of what you mean or on talking about.

    This is NOT toward any one specific person. Just a general aspect.

    The " I 2 can haz cheezeburger" doesn't apply here...

    Have fun.

    I used to HATE people correcting me... still kinda do. But if you ask me to clarify or say "hey do you really mean this".... I won't get upset. I misspell and have horrible grammar. And a lot of the time I am typing to fast and won't catch it till way later. Its human error. And not one person is perfect.

Despite language barriers, cultures, etc...

Sometimes we even simply speak the post out loud as quite some people will write phonetically when English difficult/new/unknown to them.
    I'll appreciate anyone's effort to try to speak a language that's not their own. Even if it is still quite difficult to understand. If I really can't read it, we can always ask them to write in their own language and then turn to google.
    People can have many reasons for not being very good at English, none of which we should hold against them. And in the end, like Arnaud said: they simply want help.

    It pains me that some new posters feel the need to apologize for their (often more than acceptable) English in their posts, and it makes me wonder how many people refrain from posting because they feel intimidated by, well, basically threads like these, or people making fun of their English, or, or...

    So lets just embrace our cultural differences, maybe?

Ultimately just try the best you can. I am from the USA and I BUTCHER my grammar and spelling all the time... I have to have others read my papers before I turn them in. And I am in college.

    Its not asking A LOT... its just to be mindful. Sometimes its the one that has broken english that further misspells and incorrect grammar that makes it harder for even the best of us to understand. This is not meant as a negative post. I myself as someone from the USA and english FIRST language butcher it all the time with misspelling. I know its not easy. It more of a hey ya know this could help. The more EVERYONE understands, the better we can all help eachother.

    LOL finally someone gets the point of this... While a lot of it is forgivable you would think that after (specially on a US Server) that they would pick up on it after a while. I am not going for PERFECT. After all I make plenty of mistakes. Hell even in my original start post i made an error and left it and admitted it. But especially here on the forums... paying more attention to grammar and spelling can go a long way. There are a couple I have to read comments and responses to get the jist of what is being said.

    I haz cookiez! You sharez your milk wif me pweez?!

    A broken english is better than a broken non-english, have you seen them?
    It's bad enough the game doesn't have google translate or even copy paste.
    I rather have bad english than watching 10 languages with 500 different variations.

    But in case of European server (and perhaps Oceanic), a lot of players (in mine, Romanian seems to most common) try their best to write what they think is correct English (or hope )
    what make me laugh is the players i have the most trouble to understand are English native player who use some variation (there is a Welsh in our guild, nice guy, but so hard to understand sometimes XD)
    Yeah we have a lot Romanian players too some are better than other in at English. One of my friends in game English is really good it easy to forget that it is his second language and only the odd words is used on the wrong context he would say I am taking a break but break would be brake. I had a few people try speaking to me in French and Germain which I do not speak at all that can be awkward.
