    You can just memorize or write down the language that is most common in Growtopia.

    I'll have to agree with this. We can also learn a little something about their culture.

    Not saying you don't have freedom of speech but what you said there is kinda discriminatory and inappropriate.

    Easier said than done. It will also cause cause confusion as the translators aren't accurate.
    It is not discriminatory. It happens to me tens of times on a DAILY basis, and I get kind of annoyed at it.

I doubt that the amount of indonesian players will decrease significantly any time soon, so I suggest trying to learn the basics, like that one guy already translated a few words, which can actually be quite useful, and maybe if you have any indonesian friends who you speak english with, surprise them and show them that you care and try to interact a little in indonesian. Wouldn't hurt...

    Me: Hi, buy my diamond wings for 2 worldlocks
    Them: Apa?
    Me: Sorry i dont speak indo, can you speak english?
    Them: *indo words that i definetely dont understand*
    Me: *leaves the world and visits another one*
    Inner me: The heck. Indos again?!


    No offense but indonesians has invaded growtopia and its kinda sad. I can rarely see people from other countries because almost all of the population is indonesians.

    The game has been trending/popular since 2013 at Indonesia
    I’ve noticed Indonesian players increase around the 2015 days... 2013 was mainly korean and english.

    also, what's up with ''kontol'' and why do i see it everywhere. did a big wave of kids suddenly learn a new swear word and now they're just saying it to be a cool gamer?

    itu = it
    kontol= a bad word
    and the usual WKWKWKKWKWKWKWKWKWKWK = HAHAHAHHAHAHA

    The thing is: It's hard to try to do so when I only know how to say hello or something, then they start to speak some language I don't even recognize.
    How do I respond?

    They can already communicate with ease, but having a couple keyboard language modes would be cool.

    Well, it could just be a trend there. Remember in 2013 there were a LOT of Korean and Singaporean players? They're still here but I think the number went down drastically. So we just have to wait and see what happens.

    also please don't kill me I just don't see alot of them anymore, and I COULD be wrong.

    I really hate it when an Indo comes in front of me and speaks Indo, thinking that I would understand
