Mod Stevew:
So, by this, you guys mean that we won't have a specific forum (like it used to be at first) where we can discuss our matters using our language? Removing these communities is a total equivocation in my opinion.
:(

As I see you have said you won't name any Jmods that are leaving / have left, Mod Stevew, may I just ask - Will any Jmods from Player Support be leaving too? Not asking for names, just a yes no or maybe answer please.

Mod Stevew,

could you elaborate this:

Does it mean that after July 18th we cannot write to Runescape forums using the listed languages?

Yes, that is correct.
There will still be German, French, Portuguese/Brazillian and Dutch forums - but all other languages will be dropped and the community encouraged to join the massive English speaking community.

Okay, sorry Steve.

It's just kinda annoying that we didn't get any word on this a few days earlier. I think you can understand that things like these feel like a bomb being dropped in a camp to the community.

Of course, I totally get the passion you have.
I just don't want to talk about staff on an individual level - :)

I don't get why my post on the previous page has been hidden... Please explain this?
I mean, it was kind of a rant, but it wasn't offensive in any way O_o If that was against the rules, please tell me against which rule because I really wouldn't know what was against the rules in that post...

And if they don't speak english?

Matt

I think most people from those communities have at least a basic command of English - after all they play the game in English.
There are also other options, such as having local language clans - at the end of the day there will always be some languages we don't support - and it makes sense to focus on English and the translated languages as that is where we can make the most difference and engage the community.

Steve, why is there no application on the Jagex site for a Dutch Jmod? How are you recruiting then?
