Server Advirtising
« on: Aug 24, 2008, 09:31 AM »
I would really like that Ratemyserver.net add something like the languages supported by the server. Yes we know that almost all server main language is actually English, (Especially International servers) But Internationel server doesn't have only English people in there.
I play on eternityro this server have like 1600 people online. And even if the main language is English there is like 400 people who actually speak French, and others language like Spanish and Portuguese spoke by a lot of players. Those language are supported on the server. (there is a Sub forums with these 3 languages)

Why I do this suggestion is because yesterday I saw a french guy who was actually impressed to see french people on the server, like you know almost all french server are closed by Gravity. So french people search for a good server where there is a lot of french something normal. It would really help the server and the french people if you could advertise that this server have French, Spanish and Portuguese languages supported.

sort of just two general questions here, by languages supported by the server do you mean give a list of all the languages spoken on the server? and, would you have a suggestion as to how to do this?

but over all i think its unlikely that server owners will list all the languages on the server, its rather time consuming, not to mention the fact that the player base will change over time, so i dunno if this would work..... but just wait for yc, or riot to answer ya

there's already the flag that shows the server's choice of representation (up to the owner to choose that).  I don't think it will do much to have more than one of those.

yC, I agree with Anthor. Through my statistical analysis, English and French cover a good majority of the server and have formed their independent groups. The Spanish and Portuguese groups are also rising quickly. I'd like to see an option that will let us set perhaps, approximate percentages for each Flag, maybe up to 2-4 different languages for those of us who take care enough to use analytical software.

Agree,because most players who are randomly looking for those review on the main page which attracts them and after the click the name of the server which directs you to the servers information,the flag appears there and some other Filipino players like me are really interested randomly looking for a server base on its Good Review in which I always check the flag too. And it would be interesting if there are about 2-4 flags that will appear. I this will be considered. :3

You could always write it in the description.

There are many interesting info rms could add as options, but they would not fit all server, so it's best to stick with what is very general, and that's what the current rms form covers.

Maybe a field for supported language would be nice, but more than one flag would be too much imo.

maybe keep the flag for the server's "native" language, and also have some sort of multi-lingual icon, if other languages are supported?  then details can be given in the description if they want.

that way you don't have 8 little flags for all the languages you support, and people don't have to peek into every server's description just to find out they only support English.
