WBO are getting a lot of members from Turkey since it launch. WBO have been wondering how to handle this. Obviously, the forum and site is primarily in the English-language, but they want to open up to the rest of the world.
Ironically, this new article focuses on the Turkish community but is written in English...once they get in touch with one of their translators, WBO will have it translated into Turkish!
To start, they've opened up a Beyblade discussion forum exclusively for our Turkish members: Turkish WBO Forum
Next up, you can actually view the board in Turkish now! Obviously not everything is translated -- no posts are translated, for example -- but most of the interface will be in Turkish.
WBO are also working on a Turkish translation of the rules. They know some Turkish users have been having a bit of trouble understanding, so WBO want to get that done as soon as they can do it.
Also, yes, to use the WBS if you already have an account, or to register if you don't, you must enter your real name, address and phone number. This is simply to prevent cheating on the WBS. This information will never be shared with anyone outside of the WBO staff, and no other members can see it. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to PM Brad
WBO are possibily going to reset the World Battle System rankings over the next week or two (meaning, Bey Points set at 1000 and all battles erased for all users). As the WBS is beta software right now, there are no guarantees. Brad wants to make sure everything is off to a good start and messy rankings isn't the way to do it.
As always, if you have any questions please post them. It's been a long day of hard work for Brad. Good luck and keep Bey Battling!
