Post US = English.. RIGHT?

So, if the rules state about official languages of servers,
then why is every other character I see speaking in a foreign language on US servers?

I'm not being prejudiced.
It's in T&C's.
I guess I'm lazy for not wanting to babelfish 2000 player descriptions/messages every day.
There are other language servers, right?

It seems there should be some action involved in registering
that would ensure you speak the language before joining said server,
just to wreak havoc and insult us "stupid Americans".

I don't know what else to say.
I'm probably wrong, and racist, and dumb, and lazy,
exactly the way the American stereotype paints the picture.

The rule states that characterand guild descriptions to be in the language of the server as well as said forum which in this case is english. As for guild chat unless the guild leader says it is to be english only can be in any language.

Yes,
Character descriptions of those I'm stating are all in non-english...
There's hundreds of them.
And heaven forbid if you suggest re-reading the rules...
then they send messages and resort to all caps and !!!!!!!!!!!
like its going to help anyone read it without a secret squirrel super spy decoder ring.

The rules don't mean a thing if A: you DON'T read them, B: you CAN'T read them.

US forum and game => only English allowed and Latin quotations. If you find non-English player and guild descriptions you can report them via an in-game ticket.

And, support does check the descriptions and change them. You can find some that say something such as "Character descriptions must be in English. Thank you." But, the support team is 2 folks only (last I knew), so they can't police all the info. They could use more help, but that isn't likely to happen. Therefore, just report it and they will get to it.

how about character descriptions with curses in them? i even reported one of my own guild members after i warned him and he ignored me but i stopped reporting them because every couple profiles i click on has curses in them. it is so wide spread i feel like reporting them is a waste of time. how about a word filter? i have no idea how to implement it in the game but i know they work well at the forums i mod. if one could be added in game people would have no choice but to post in english and would not be able to curse.

Curses aren't allowed either.

There is a filter but it mainly applies to character and guild names. As with non-English descriptions, curse words are filtered as they're found/reported. Multiple infractions results in increasing temporary bans.
