- Foreign languages are now allowed in Unions ONLY. Unions can now have foreign language discussion as long as they are a regional Union. For an example, if someone creates a Japanese Union and this is in the name of the Union, this is a regional Union. If someone creates a DragonBallz Union and the name does not say it's focused on a particular region, they cannot discuss in any other language but English.
