    True, true. The last time i played was giving my stuff and selling some stuff to growtopians and our convo was like:

    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.

    We need a proxy for gt that translates,if you talk eng,it will be Indo,if a Indo chats,it will be eng

    trust me it will be useful
    I don't have ideas to what to put on my signature, So here's a text meme

    I AGREE but there will be a problem because if the translation is inaccurate then it may cause unnecessary drama

    I’m not even trying to discriminate but talking in a language I don’t understand all the time is disrespectful, sure you may be horrible at English and it’s embarrassing but I was the same, if not worst when I first started playing.
    At least if you’re trying to trade in a public world try and speak in English so that people around you don’t feel bad.

    Most online games have a rule of not speaking another language in chats, so something like that should be implemented to maybe the broadcasting system so that it isn’t filled with other languages.

    won't say it's disrespectful to be honest, i'm not indonesian but i feel that in a game with more than 60% of the players being indonesian, it won't be too unreasonable to assume that the guy you're speaking to is indonesian, and therefore speak the language that you are both more fluent in.

    i used to think that since this is a game made in english, we should all speak english. i still stand by this notion even after feeling that it's a lost cause, but provided that most players are children, and some of these children have limited fluency in english, the only thing we can do is to tolerate it and possibly learn a few common words in the process to understand what they are saying.

    yeah. Pretty sure saw an SB in indonesian selling accounts, zeus 2dl focus 3dl or something like that. Those accounts are definitely hacked.

    yeah but it will be better if we use google translate files or help from FORUMERS,it will increase accuracy,but this thing is hard and GT programmers just focus on hacks and stuff,so this thing will not exist,unless it become reality
