Better informing new players about the English chat rules
It's gotten to the point where moderators and players have to pretty much spam the chat with the English rules almost constantly.
Here's some simple suggestions for improving that:
- Put a MOTD/channel topic in the chat about the English rules that is shown to everyone when they log on to the game and open the chat.
- Change the globe icon in the main chat to an English flag (or appropriate language flag for other servers).
- Add UI buttons to join other language chat channels/pick your primary language for chat and maybe force people to do that before they enter general chat.
- Add a newbie chat to which new players are restricted to until they reach some milestone. (Could also help against the constant black beans questions)
We can't do anything about people that are unable to read, Chat rule thread: http://forum.en.anno-online.com/threads/466-Chat-rules
well its finally happened , cant log in, no need to spell out "clear cache" etc been done umpteen times, just delete the account
instead of warning these players not to speak any other language other than English in Global chat its in the chat rules aint it??? , Just BAN them , quicker simpler
Muting them is far more successful, I'd say.
