    Hi my friends! I would like to share my idea with you. I haven't thought about everything exactly but I want to see your thoughts and how you feel about it:)

    I recently logged in to some other forums and I thought wouldn't be nice if we could meet all farmerama players in one forum? We all having something in common- we play Farmerama.
    So why not share our thoughts and passion about the game?

    It may only seem like it is very hard to happen but I believe it is possible. First we need to decide a certain day (or days) for this meeting-party so everyone can come to the EN forum. We will write a text like This day(20 of August for example) the EN community invites you to join us so all farmerama players can meet and talk about the game.... This won't be the exact post but something like that. And we will translate it to every language, I can find native people to do the translation and we will post it in each forum. I also thought that we can create 2 threads or we will arrange how many. One for talking and one for playing games so everyone can take part. Maybe this thread for games will be with numbers so players who don't know English can play.

    It will be a world party-meeting!
    I just want to see if you like this idea, I don't need help -even thought it would be appreciated if you can translate the text in one language you are native- I want to see if you would like this to happen.:)

    How will they post here, Arielh ? Because they can do so only if they knew English. Any post other than English Language is against the rules and might be deleted. Have you any plan how to work it out ? Someone must be very often online to translate the post and I think if a post is in another language, the translation of it must be in the same post. I do not want to discourage you but curious to know how you are going to put it into practise. All the Best !

    Thank you for posting your questions and thoughts 12ss12! Exactly they can only post here if they know English that's something we can't change because of the forum's rules. But most of the people know English so this is why this will happen in this forum and not in anywhere else.
    But because I really want everyone to have a chance to participate in this, I thought the idea of games, games without words just numbers or anything else we can think of! Players who don't speak English can post in the game threads. I have done it, I don't remember if it was the Danish forum or the German forum, maybe both. While I was exploring these forums I found out some game threads without words and I joined them!

    Do you mean that the « World meeting » can not be published on other languages Farmerama forum?

    Other language forum users not only disposed about their native language, they all also can display other language forums in english and if most Farmerama forum users have english notions, they can decide to invite all english spoken Farmerama forum users in their own national Farmerama forum « World meeting » thread, because english is the second language of each Farmerama forum, except the english one.

    The international Farmerama user have not to create multinational Farmerama forum usernames: english contents in another other language forum « World meeting » can directly be read without identification. This resolves questions like tips and tricks translated and published by the national forum user: an international Farmerama forum reader goes publish a sourced indication in their own national « World meeting ».

    Each national forum have his own « World meeting » thread.
    The introduction post links to all existing « World meeting » threads.
    The official language in a « World meeting » thread is english.

    Thanks to the « World meeting », the « Tool Wall » suggestion can be post in a resumed manner on other language forums.

    The all forum language « World meeting » threads are international places, where everybody can meet nationals. If I like to post in other nations forum, I will mention my main forum in my signature.

    (the 18 Farmerama forum country codes: bg, cs, da, de, el, en, es, fi, fr, hu, it, nl, pl, pt, ro, ru, sv, tr)

    This makes my signature be composed as follow: artisanalActivity_marketNumber.highestTotalizedMarketPlaceValueUnits_mainlandLevel.experiencePoints_(BahamaramaLevel.tropicalExperiencePoints)_forumCountryCode

    I like the idea, Arielh! :) It would be fun meeting international farmers :D
    Doesn't it just figure that "posting in some other language is against the rules"? Good grief!! :( <<< btw, that's a rhetorical question & really, just an expression of my thoughts/feelings about how repressive the forum can become at times >>>

    elRe, thank you for taking time to go through my idea and post your thoughts and suggestions.:)
    I understand what your point is but we are not allowed to post to a foreign forum if we don't post in that language, that's why I believe that first we should do the "World meeting" here in the EN community because many people know English. Moreover we can't have 18 "World meetings" in 18 forums because then it won't be a world meeting. My idea is all players to meet in one forum so we can meet each other and talk about farmerama. What you suggest has differences with my idea but I believe it can happen in the future if we convince players from other forums and their moderators.
    But what I suggest can actually happen in a week if we want to! We will just arrange a date and we will invite all players from the 18 forums to join us here!
    That's simple, what you suggest seems more complicated because it requires a lot of players to take part. But now if only 10 players from each forum come here then we will have 180 players to join the "world meeting".
    Maybe we should not say one day because we don't all have the same hour in our country so we can do that for 3 days, and everyone can come whenever he can!
    So what I say is we make it happen in the EN community first and then we talk about it with players from other forums and maybe then we will do it in every forum!
    Cactus I am so happy you like my idea:inlove:
    Well this rule makes sense. At first I couldn't see it either but that's why there are 18 forums so we can have a forum where we can speak our native language with our fellow farmers and read the FAQ and the official announcements in our language.
    I am now thinking of an example. If anyone could come here and post in his language what would be the point? No one would understand him there would be confusion, someone would post in English the other in German haha it would be chaos! But now you know that in the EN forum people speaking English if you want to talk German you would go to the DE forum.
    Of course it would be nice if they could make a few exceptions like in a meeting like this. But I have seen make exceptions. One time there was a farmer who didn't know English but somehow he came to this forum and couldn't log in to his. Mods let him write in his language and a player from this forum translated the text so mods could help him.
    well I know a rhetorical question can't be answered but haha I answered it:p

    In my opinion I do not have the right to post on the english forum. That is the reason, why I am thinking about to request the permission for participating in the english community.
    If the section « Foreign Users Introductions » get a place in a Farmerama english forums rubric, I will ask the Moderators to displace my players introduction thread linked in my signature.
    If an other language forum decides to publish his own « World meeting », the other language Farmerama forum users can display international information like the calendar. Actually, only 9 of the above named Farmerama forum country codes shows upcoming events:
    bg.Календар
    de.Kalender
    el.Ημερολόγιο
    fi.Kalenteri
    hu.Naptár
    pl.Kalendarz
    ro.Calendar

    elRe you have the right to post here, everyone has since he can write in English. And you do perfectly:)
    Weird that only half of the forums have calendars, well 10 since the EN forum has. Wait maybe I misunderstood, they have calendars but they don't post the events there?
    Anyway for now I think we should focus on making the "world meeting" in one forum. First "we start slowly so we won't lose everything", we have a Greek saying like that but I can't translate it completely as we say it but that's the point.
    We should have a world meeting here and then others will follow.

    All eighteen Farmerama forums have a calendar, but actually, only nine show upcoming events and the en.Calendar shows the running event, but not the upcoming ones.

    I think, that international forum users do not need an invitation to post in the english forum and I believe, that the english forum users can show how they manage their own multinational information in the « World meeting » destinated to international readers.

    If the english forum user think that other language forums do not know how to play with numbers, the english Farmerama users can talk about and demonstrate some examples in the « World meeting », how to match farmers interests with numbers universality.

    Today, the whole english Farmerama forum is a « World meeting » like thing.

    Arielh, are You suggesting other language Farmerama forum users to post in english on the english Farmerama forum in only one thread? I think, if other language Farmerama forum communities wish to use an english Farmerama forum born idea published in the english « World meeting » thread, they can delegate an ambassador to ask in the name of the international Farmerama society (iFs) to propose an adequate translation in their own other language Farmerama forum « World meeting » thread: english, translated to english, it is feasible.

    Arielh, instead of publish invitations on other language forums, why not open an example of a « World meeting » in the name of the iFs on one other language Farmerama forum and go use this thread to ask the permission to translate to the english language some interesting contents.
    Once translated combined with the original version to the « World meeting », each other language Farmerama community can pick the information to their own « World meeting » and again, combine it with an other language translation.
    In any case, the contributors permission is needed. That is why it is usefull to summarize interesting elsewhere contents as soon as possible and offer it to translation in the home « World meeting » thread.

    I will say it in a Tweet:

    If the international Farmerama competitor needs a multinational Farmerama forum daily drop, the « World meeting » be a way to apply for one.

    I didn't undestand that. How can it be a world meeting if not players from other forums can't take part?
    Yes I undestand that because there are players from all over the world. Indeed this is right but all of us who came here came by our selves(and maybe we were forced to leave our initial forum). But now it will be different we will send invitations so they will feel welcome to join our community. Now it will be a world meeting because we will have players from every forum, now we don't.
    Not just one maybe 2 or 3 so we will have game threads for those who can't speak English. But yes this is what I suggest.

    I just feel like we can have the opportunity to meet players from all over the world. Why shouldn't we do it?
    We have nothing to lose only to gain!:)

    Your arguments show that you need to legitimate actual other language forums presence and activity in the english Farmerama forum community.

    Yes elRe I want them to come here and post for some days so we can meet each other and share our ideas and thoughts about the game. But that doesn't mean they will have to continue posting after this meeting, this is not my intention. My intention is a "world meeting" everyone to come here(here because it is legitimate because more people know English) and then we can all have fun for some days. It will be a unique experience:)

    I feel we should've been just one forum to begin with and this would not have been a topic.. I know some how BP can add a program to a site... and use that site as a main forum for all players in any language. I know I used to be able to chat to others from all over before and our computer and browsers did the converting of languages.( at least i think i remember it doing that) Why we cant here is cause I am guessing it is in the coding of this site for only english. Or am i wrong? I have no clue.. just going by what i remember from sites long ago...

    it would be nice to meet more people and get some helpful tips from. but i only know one language and that is english. I wish also BP do us english videos on youtube. All I can find is some i have no clue to whats being said... no captions ethier... so I don't watch them..

    If it happens we can meet others I think it would be wonderfull :) :)

    Good Luck on that wishful thinking sookie22. Don't feel bad I wasn't here when they did offer them. So i missed out. Its not like they cant limit us on how many we can have... so why they don't/wont bring it back is beyond me...I think least offering them 1 or 2 times a year is a good idea too... But what I saw in forums , we more likely wont ever get a BB tree. To top it off i would even pay money for one if it was a reasonable price...
