    Howdy, fellows. As you know it's been for a while, the country I live (Brazil) and others have been voice blacklisted, so we can't use the microphone. I get the idea you don't want people speaking other languages on the server but that decision is misguided or, at least, not taken seriously. We have to ask for unmute to admins every map change, and now it's buggy and we need to ask multiple times in each map. Since the work of banning trolls seem much less than toggling mute twice on every foreign player, (every map, every time) I'd recommend that you drop this decision or, at least, make a player whitelist. also, I understand Brazil is famous for trolls, but should we all take punishment for what a few idiots do? Anyway, this blacklist creates more problems than it solves, it seems

    here's a list of suggestions:

    - mute new players by default, until 1hr spent on the server.
    - automatically whitelist players who sign up on the forum.
    - reinforce the order of "only english on the mic", otherwise, ban.

    I am humbly hoping I can get in touch with you, in-game, like any other human being: talking. unless you did not understand what I just posted, in which case, I don't know what to say.

    sincerely yours
    Zorak

      How am I supposed to prove it to you I am not Jeremy? Should I say I have witnesses in-game? Should I say league of legends sucks and teemo sucks worse? Anyway, how can I know YOU are not Jeremy?

        That's the attitude Jeremy gave to Kyle and that's how the decision came to be a no. Your English seems to be fluent, so you may be the guy that gets BR white listed, but Jeremy will pull this backwards. Somehow, I have a feeling you have some type of relation with Jeremy because what a coincidence that you're also Brazilian?

          cause it looks like you went way out of your way to create a new acccount let alone post on the forums and now u are typing in italics (which is annoying to read). 90% this is Jeremy just acting under another aias

            Zorak and Jeremy are two different people, unless they decided to use separate steam accounts to login into ZM at the same time to appear like two different people.

            IMHO arguing whether Zorak and Jeremy are the same person is just excessive pedantry.

              Aside from that, this has already been discussed and rejected by Kyle. The fact that you are now posting this and that you either are or friends w/Jeremy, just shows that you are trying to spam the forums.

                  Meh, Kyle is probably going to just lock this anyways, this is nothing more than spam.

                      We've had plenty of forum discussions about this before.

                        No, I am not Jeremy. Please do not associate me with him. The only thing we have in common is we are from BR

                              They're friends and Jeremy brought him to post, but this isn't an issue.

                              If there was something compelling I'd be in for it. If there was any constructive conversation driven from doing this I'd be totally okay with it as well. If it's going to upset 30%, and it's just literally talking about penises, there's no value... Jeremy baiting me ingame afterwards saying how people are talking about Sexuality and he can't talk about Penises... Really, who gives a shit? People converse normally, there's no need to drive the conversation to genitalia. This, along with historical reasons are the reasons why this is still a terrible idea.

                              Just so we're clear, the majority of the population still do not orally speak English. There's absolutely no value from changing this.

                              EDIT: Just so we're super clear, I just removed France from the whitelist as it's been a constant problem for about a week now.
