Bro, I remember you that not everybody has a native english language (like Potty or me for example, which is the greater language in the world, French (héhé)), so everybody has to do an effort to speak english (even if it's bad) and to understand it, even if the english we read is awful (like mine for example)
It's not mine native language as well. Also, almost 5 times less people speak French as their native language than English, so where did you get the "greater" from? Also when you add how widespread English is... yeah, sounds like a poor excuse to me.
English is not a difficult language to learn at all. If your life would depend on it, you would learn it in a matter of days, if not even hours in some extreme cases. Nowadays you can learn to speak it really well in a matter of a week or two, if you really want it. So anyone typing "I'm sorry for my English" is actually not sorry at all, because if you would, you wouldn't be making excuses but getting better at it.
Also, unlike you, Potterman writes in a perfectly understandable way, without really making mistakes. And even if he does, heck, everyone does, that includes me and native speakers as well. Just that it usually doesn't result in something that cannot be understand.
The very idea of this forum is to convey your feedback to Devs. If you can't do it in a way that leaves no room for misinterpretation, then it creates issues. You improving your English will simply benefit your ability to help with the game development. Less time they spend figuring out what you mean, more time they can spend on actually fixing/adding stuff.
Similii made a joke when he said that French was the greatest language :-p
For French people learning English is very hard. I only know English so well because at 14 I was already bathing in it by browsing forums, and then at 20 there was the Rollcage group which improved my English a lot, + also my international class that required everyone to speak English all the time.
While I agree that English is easy to learn, I understand that some people have difficulties to learn it. Even though some threads written poorly are hard to figure out, well with some effort, and maybe additional post from the users, eventually we get the idea (which might be original and worth reading by the way).
