So I have noticed a large quantity of players doing things that are deemed to be rude and annoying by the general JP community and I've decided to make a post gathering the most important rules to follow to be safe and not get on anyone's nerves.
1. Do NOT use SHOUT/SAY chats for your personal discussions.
2. Please use Party List (コミュニティサーチ) for sponsoring runs/looking for members.
3.You may use SHOUT if sponsoring a run (without spamming), remembering this:
シャウト失礼しいます、[NAME OF THE RUN] @[# OF MEMBERS NEEDED] よろしくお願いします。 (Shauto shitsurei shimasu, [NAME OF THE RUN] @[# OF MEMBERS NEEDED] yoroshiku onegaishimasu.) when the Party is full, say 〆です、シャウト失礼しました。 (〆 (shime) is a symbol commonly used to indicate a full PT/Team).
4. Don't AFK Spin. You know what it is, it won't save you from D/C and makes you look bad. I could go on explaining why but to put it simply, you do not want to stand out as a foreigner to jp players.
5. Don't go around PM'ing (TELL chat) or inviting strangers to Party. 6. Be courteous. Japanese people are very fond of manners, just don't be rude in general.
I will add more if anything else comes to mind, for now please follow these simple guidelines and you're good to go~
