#1 Post English on the mic only - Why isn't this the case?
Recently, due to the server's increased player capacity there's a been an influx of people playing from different countries. Diversity is great and all, however zombie escape is a team game, and this has started to become an issue due to people constantly talking in different languages across the mic.

The whole point of talking on the mic is to communicate with everyone else in the game, often to help those who are unfamiliar with the map and need instructions for what they need to do. However, people speaking in different languages across the mic destroys this, because only 2 or 3 other people on the server can understand them. New players aren't going to stick around if they can't understand a thing of what people are saying, and it generally creates quite a toxic environment with people speaking different languages across the mic at once. It's uncomfortable to listen to people have their own conversation which everyone can hear but only they can understand - They should be messaging each other in that case. Not only is the server UK based, but English is the language most of the players are fluent with, and even those who aren't fluent can at least understand basic English and get the gist of what people are saying. There are a ton of zombie escape servers, which are catered towards specific languages, and for the few who really want to converse in their own language they should be going to those servers, because that's where people will understand them.

The main reason to allow every language on the server is that many of those players who use foreign languages arent able to speak english. Happends on 1.6. aswell. And make it english only then would make those players leave our servers, since they want to talk with their friends while playing. As Uhu stated use the /mute (!mute ?) command to mute those players who doesnt speak english and everything is fine.

Restricting the mic language takes a big "fun" part of the game, but you can't have fun if the mic is being spammed on your ear. At the moment there's only Death moderating so it might be a huge load for him alone, plus not being able to understand all different languages. So perhaps alternatives should be considered, an automatic mute all at start and eventually advertise how to unmute. Or simply restrict the language while we don't have the
manpower. But this needs to be done considering that the game is intolerable enough so someone, probably me, will have to check the gameplay. Death's input on this could help us understand better.

Honestly I think that language diversity should be allowed on the server as per what Joel Miller said.
As a Spanish guy I am, normally when I get to the server I always speak in English until someone who is Spanish joins and doesn't know how to speak English properly, which, basically happens most of the time, so normally I have to translate what people are saying to them, but obviously I always get people complaining, tho I try my best to sort of translate to both sides.
Now, honestly, I think that only restricting it to English would reduce the amount of players a bit, as perhaps almost everyone that joins the server gets to know basic English.

Usually we allow different languages to be spoken when the server is low on players, and the game isn't commanded by someone. However with +20 on the server, it becomes english only and other languages therefore shouldn't be spoken in mic-chat and should be moderated.

This is understandable, but I would recommend to at least give one warning to the Spanish people that are talking when there are too many people before muting them, as if not they will either get angry or leave the server as it has been seen before.

The moderators should always warn you before they mute you. If they not, you are free to collect proofs and report them through a pm in the admin team.

Alright. I was saying it because before certain Mod in the server muted a Spanish guy as he was talking without any warning and he got angry and started raging in chat. But, thanks anyways.
