PostSubject: Language in the chat!   Wed Dec 14, 2011 12:14 pm

now listen, ive heard about some problems in the chat regarding the english only rule, this is a good rule because not everyone in the chat can speak YOUR language, when people break out convos in their own language, you start isolating the others who cant speak it and they feel left out, dont go "oh you should learn our language" because that isnt right at all, this is a world wide site and english is the international language that at least 90% of the world understands, so the english only rule still stands, now if you wanna speak in your own language when leaving profile comments, thats fine, but if you want to talk to another person in the chat in your own language you should do it in either facebook or some other IM, come on ppl we gotta be fair, this rule is NOT bs, and it wont be removed, jeez you guys had no problems with this at anihub, so why is it a prob all of a sudden!

the ADMIN has spoken, if you have any concerns please reply in a RESPECTFUL manner below

have a nice day!

I'm assuming that just saying like "Konichiwa" and maybe a sentence that they learned from japanese as a greeting, isn't a bad thing, correct?

That I would agree.
But the English Only Language says otherwise ... so..
How?

Isn't "Kon-nichiwa" common? I don't think anyone would not now since, they join so of course they would have gone through some Japanese words. I mean, come on, Anime was created in Japanese.
Oh... And I totally agree with Ich-baka.

I guess so, few Japanese word can be use since anime was created by Japan. Since most of us could probably understand common Japanese words.

I disagree with allowing a few Japanese words. Mixing Japanese words with English one's is annoying as hell.

Well. Look it at it like this. If youre american you speak english. But even americqns drop words like adios or gracias into our daily speech. So i think this should be no different.

like i just said in my first post, EVERYONE here has basic english knowledge, if not then how the heck can they navigate this site? hmm? its not that the dont know english, they just arent good at it and dont feel like speaking it, but practice makes perfect, english in the chat, and thats that lol

i will allow small japanese words like konnichiwa, konbanwa, urusai, etc. im sure ppl who watch subbed anime knows what those words mean so i dont see any harm in it as des pointed out, BUT dont go speaking full sentences in jap or any other language, use FB or YM or MSN or even PM here if you wanna chat with a buddy in your own language, cuz like some of them said above it will create language barriers and isolate ppl in the chat, so lets just follow a simple rule ok?
