    kind of an interesting idea that I've looked at when I was looking through the "into the new era" mark 4 or 5...6 maybe? anyways the quote is:

    despite the fact that most of us on here only type/say in English. can we by chance expand the consept of having different languages on here and not just simply rofl stomp this site with 100% eng-ish. sure it might cause confusion from other individuals that speak in different tongs but, it could expand the ways of the xpoff into further directions than just do what the eng-ish do.

    also in a future update, can we add a translator system into xpoff for later in development? in case if this does come to pass.

    You mean, localised subforums for Spanish and stuff?

    pretty much, considering there's about at least 10 different speaking countries that play wow.

    there's even some forums about it ... but I can't seem to find anymore recent than a 2011-2016 forum about that topic on that site.

    doesn't this place already have bots in it?

    last time I recalled there's a part of the site that has a list of bots in it.

    I like the idea, long as it can be pulled off without major issues.

    We'll see what can be done.
    If I were to guess, however we can likely support some of the major languages only (Spanish, French, Portugese, German) as we likely will not have the manpower to take care of the lesser ones.
    I would also depend on finding Moderators for them, obviously.

    I think that a "interface" translation would be awesome.
    And behind any post, [EU-Sp], [US-Pt], [EU-En], etc...
    Also a subforum for different languajes to discuss

    I believe there's some built-in translations, they're just not enabled

    Yes pleaseeee
    There are many MANY twinks out there that don't come here because they don't feel comfortable writing in english; and in the past we've had threads where people do their best to try and write in english just to be laughed at or insulted with stupid responses like tacotaco burrito... >__>>
    It'd be nice to have a place to organize the micro-communities and have the important guides translated (it'd benefit everyone!)
    And I know some people have attempted to do this before (@Yde, come back!!!); but I think it'd also help to have new threads (or resurrect old ones?) of common translations in different languages for the common bg commands (give flag, turtle, etc).

    This always bothered me. Being born in the USA I get to see it first hand how Minorities and people of different Nations are treated by status quo White Merica! If for no other reason than to allow Players who don't speak English as a first language to feel comfortable on this website, the only real WoW Twinking Community, I'm all for it ;)
