Ethnocentricity aside, Defiance Trion isnt sophisticated enough to have the set up to make you have English only showing up any more than french or german only. But at least many of the German and French players can read English too. :P

Thanks Sanguinesun for the reply - you'd think they'd had a separate department to handle the forums like other MMO's do.

Perhaps others can read french and german, and perhaps german and french players can read english - I can't and I would like to have these filtered - come on now.

I can read german and english so I like how it is actually but wouldn´t mind if there would be an option for people like Silverbluetree.

Oh please, there is like 1 post in a different language every 10 pages.
Deal with it

I literally don't see how this is a problem.

It's the fact that I prefer NOT to have to sift through posts in languages I don't understand.

I'm sure your family is very proud of your rudeness.

If anyone is being rude, it's the OP for thinking that Trion should focus their time/energy into something so frivolous.

And you don't have to 'sift' through posts. How often do you see posts in different languages? I've already listed how often I've seen them, and I'm pretty sure I've had more experience with it.

Out of all my times on the forums I came across one post that I couldn't read. NOT A BIG DEAL. Of all the things people are complaining about this has to be the most pointless.

I have brought this up, and they have stated that they will not change the forums at all, for anyone.

Hah! Pretty clever.

I just revised the url to not include only one forum, but rather to exclude the unwanted two.

It actually turns out that you cannot exclude whole sections. You have to exclude each single sub-forum and the root forum as well if you don't want the postings there included in the search. The numbers are the same ones as shown in the forum section link when you hover your mouse pointer over one.

Basic link: http://forums.defiance.com/search.php?do=getnew&exclude=

Defiance Support
35 = Defianec Server Status
41 = Patch Notes
33 = Tech Support, Bug Reports and Issues

Defiance Forums
3 = General Discussion
21 = General - PC
22 = General - Xbox 360
23 = General - PlayStation 3
37 = Gameplay Discussion
32 = Story & Lore
40 = Missions and Contracts
36 = PvP
42 = Need/Want (Trading Post)
38 = Suggestions!
24 = PC Clans
25 = Xbox 360 Clans
26 = PlayStation 3 Clans
8 = Dev Tracker
19 = Off Topic

Deutsch
17 = Berichte & News
13 = Allgemeine Diskussion
15 = Gilden- und Clan-Foren

Francais
18 = Comptes rendus de renseignement & actualités
14 = Discussions générales
16 = Forums de guildes et clans

With that info, you should be able to put together your own forum menu ;)

If for example a French guy wanted to read official statements and only postings in French, he would set up the search link like this:

http://forums.defiance.com/search.php?do=getnew&exclude=3,21,22,23,32,40,36,42,38,24,25,26,19,17,1 3,15

If you don't seem to be getting the result you're looking for, please make sure that
- you've excluded the correct (sub) sections
- the administrator didn't change section numbers

If you're more an "include" kind of guy, you can also include forum section numbers you wish to search.

Basic link: http://forums.defiance.com/search.php?do=getnew&include=

Simply add the section numers you wish to have included in your search. Using include, our french friend from the example above would create a link that looked like this:

http://forums.defiance.com/search.php?do=getnew&include=35,41,33,8,18,14,16
