10. Concerning the Foreign Language forum : Currently, Daylight Pets allows for foreign languages to be spoken on a singular forum. They should not, at any point, be used in profiles, the shoutbox, and private messages due to the fact that the staff is English based and we have no means to properly monitor.The foreign language forum is a privilege, not a right, and should it be abused, it will be removed from the site in definitely.
