    I consider myself as a fluent English speaker, but since I've been playing the game in my native tongue it's sometimes hard to figure out the terminology used here since the Finnish in-game jargon was somewhat different (you can't directly translate from Finnish to English or vice versa - due to some basic structural and conceptual differences between the languages) . And as I'm reaching pension age (born in 1961) I'm not totally comfortable with the way younger people use English (or native Finnish youngsters for that matter :) ). I've learned my English basics in the golden 70's and I may sometimes use very olden or even pre-historic expressions from the way back. Please bear with me.

    But hey, no problem, we live and learn, I don't find this unpleasant at all.

    True, it's nice that even an older person can force a little to learn the general language of the world here. Although sometimes it’s pretty tricky to understand all things.:sleepy:

    There's a lot of dinosaurs here that speak English from the 1970s (at least what my sons tell me) ;)8)

    If you mean plants, then you can't get them, but they have to be made in a mill.

    A lot of my writings are rejected because I have to translate here to tell my things. And they are not the literary language of English
    It's not good to be treated so badly

    Most of your writings I have seen here were in Finnish, so they are removed.

    To be honest, they looked like they were once translated to English and back to Finnish after that o_O

    Menninkainen99, this is what Google translate says:
    I noticed, but you're going to pass me by. The "full moon" passed. Ha-haa ..
    How far off of a translation is this?

    I did not see original message, but I doubt it is far off xD
    Full moon refers Moonlight Mania, I guess Menninkäinen missed it.
