Ok, to try to better the community as a whole, I would like to suggest something to the players.

The first time you have someone come up to you, and say something like...
"hAy can u gve me goooold plz, cuz i m new an in eed it bad. tnx."
or
"i lik dis gaem lots, cna u plvl me k bi"

Tell them that typing in full, complete sentences, with proper punctuation and capitalization will get them more respect, and possibly get them some of that 'fr3e gld' that they were begging for before. I, personally, will be doing thisto everyone that says something like that to me, to convert the poor, mislead n00bs to what I call 'coherentism'.

I believe that this will make a much more enjoyable community, when all sentences typed are completely coherent.

Also, if you are one of the players that will talk like this in game, take the few months before the release to practice typing like this.

"There once was a man from Nantucket, who lived his whole life in a bucket..."

Etc.

EDIT::: I am glad I got to this before Dw. If you talk like that in jest, that is fine. As long as you can be coherent most of the time, and when it is important. I know if I had waited to edit this, Ransk would've had a hay day of BDBDBDBDBDBDBDBD.

I think that if anyone uses that language to me, I will simply say "What???" until they type out full, coherent sentences. I can understand it, I just don't want to.

I'll just drink.

I guess it's a good idea, though you can't ask all people to speak fluent english. I guess typing full words and sentences instead of using acronyms and shortnings (like plz) is something that should be done, but typos (which their origin come from just not knowing how to spell the word) and grammar problems are hard to correct.
I know that allthough my english is pretty good compared to many others, I still have these mistakes.

I used to type like that... though I really doubt I was a s bad as your examples. I always explain to people that they'd be taken more seriously if they typed in full, proper english. I learned the whole proper grammer thing from playing iRO, ironically.
