Again, their own fault.
That there really is complete bs tbh .. because if you think of that this way: you flip the situation around, where you are english and you go to say a russian server where rules are in russian and you don't know a word of it and you do something that they have forbidden and because of it u get slayed / kicked / banned for it. And then say if you do get banned and you ask why i got banned they just say "it's not our fault you don't understand russian language."
I didn't know it's somekind of special treatment if you simply put the rules in few other languages to the /rules window, i thought it could be this thing called "common courtesy" or something that direction, since it surely should not be an impossible thing to do to simply translate them
E: for example in russian and this took me literally like 2 minutes (used google translate, how right these are i don't know.)
- Убийство заложников запрещено.
- Длительные периоды вытяжной / заложника кемпинг запрещен.
- VIP-персоны не могут дать себе оружие в первом раунде.
Feel free to translate all the rules. I don't think anyone is stopping you. But just remember there's hundres of languages. Whuch languages should be translated? All of them? I doubt, since it all takes on the machine which isn't the best atm. Also english is a language that is spread out the world, so shouldn't be so hard to understand with the rules say, also when we tell them to it, and if they do not understand, how should they know when I tell them "read the rules, type /rules" because they don't understand english? Even then, how can I make sure they've read them?
Translation on the forum is a different thing from actually translation all the rules on all servers for the specific country.
And also google translate doesn't translate it correctly. I have translated danish sentences into english via it, and the sentence that comes out doesn't make sense. So we should find a translater that understood the language and can write all the rules. Also asks the admins to add it, for those few persons that comes in + the fact that I doubt many actually do read the when logging to the server.
The fact stands that this is a english speaking server, and people should at least know enough to read the rules. Else in my opinion it's their own fault for joining a server they don't understand the language in and the get punished for not understand what we do when we tell them what they are doing wrong.
Also the non-english areas are for our regulars so they have their own place for their language. It isn't meant as a place for everyone. Doesn't mean other people from that country can't come in a talk. But it's meant for the regulars.
I don't think anyone want to translate the rules, and I don't think the admins wanna fill the servers up with mostly useless plug-ins for multiple translations and make it even harder for the machine.
